Recommended Conferences for Aortic Valve Replacement

Aortic Valve Replacement


As per available reports about 10 Conference Proceedings, 2 Conferences and 8 relevent journals are published by OMICS International relevant to Aortic Valve Replacement.

Aortic valve replacement is a procedure in which a patient's failing aortic valve is replaced with an artificial heart valve. The Aortic valve can be affected by a range of diseases; the valve can either become leaky (aortic insufficiency / regurgitation) or partially blocked (aorticstenosis).

Percutaneous heart valve replacement is a relatively new interventional procedure involving the insertion of an artificial heart valve using a catheter, rather than through open heart surgery. The portal of entry is typically either via the femoral vein or artery, or directly through the myocardium via the apical region of the heart. An expandable prosthetic heart valve is delivered and deployed at the site of the diseased native valve. The percutaneous heart valve replacement procedure usually takes less time to perform and is less invasive than open heart surgery.

OMICS International, Organizes 1000+ Global Events, Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies, and Publishes 700+ Open access journals, which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series, website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.

Scope & Importance

Aortic valve replacement is a procedure in which a patient's failing aortic valve is replaced with an artificial heart valve. The aortic valve can be affected by a range of diseases; the valve can either become leaky or partially blocked. Current aortic valve replacement approaches include open heart surgery, minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS) and minimally invasive, catheter-based aortic valve replacement.

A catheter-based approach may eliminate the need for open heart surgery in select groups of patients. As of October 2012, in the USA there is an FDA-approved percutaneously implantable aortic valve system for high surgical risk and inoperable patients with symptomatic aortic stenosis with other catheter-based devices on trial use. Tissue heart valves are usually made from animal tissue, either animal heart valve tissue or animal pericardial tissue. The tissue is treated to prevent rejection and calcification.

There are alternatives to animal tissue valves. In some cases a homograft - a human aortic valve- can be implanted. Homograft valves are donated by patients and recovered after the patient dies. The durability of homograft valves is comparable to porcine and bovine tissue valves. Another procedure for aortic valve replacement is the Ross procedure. In a Ross procedure, the aortic valve is removed and replaced with the patient's own pulmonary valve. A pulmonary homograft (pulmonary valve taken from a cadaver) is then used to replace the patient's own pulmonary valve.

The aortic valve may need to be replaced for two reasons:

1.  narrowing of the valve (aortic stenosis)

2.  leaking of the valve (aortic regurgitation)
 

The valve may be replaced by the following devices/prosthetics:

Biological valve replacement:

Biological valves (also called tissue or bioprosthetic valves) are made of tissue, but they may have some artificial parts to provide additional support and allow the valve to be sewn in place. Around 80% of valves are replaced with this type.

Traditional Aortic Valve Surgery:

During traditional aortic valve surgery, a surgeon makes a 6- to 8-inch incision down the center of the sternum, and part of or the entire sternum (breastbone) is divided to provide direct access to your heart. The surgeon then repairs or replaces your abnormal heart valve or valves.

Minimally Invasive Aortic Valve Surgery:

Minimally invasive aortic valve surgery is a type of aortic valve repair surgery performed through smaller, 2- to 4-inch incisions without opening your whole chest. This is typically done with a “J” incision and leaves your chest stable. Minimally invasive surgery reduces blood loss, trauma, and length of hospital stay. It is also easier to recovery from this type of surgery.

Market Analysis

The World Heart Federation (WHF) unites 200 members spanning 100 countries in the fight against cardiovascular disease Global Data research predicts the worldwide market for CMD devices will reach $1.2 billion by 2017. The global cardiovascular device industry is growing rapidly and is said that a growth of $15billion is made from 2010-2015 as per BCC research.Products included in this market are electrocardiograph monitoring equipment, which is set to see 4% growth by 2017 to be worth over $410 million.
