Evaluation of the long-term effect of percutaneous balloon valvuloplasty on right ventricular function using tissue Doppler imaging in patients with mitral stenosis.
For patients who underwent mitral valvuloplasty or bioprosthetic valve replacement in the same period, warfarin was orally taken for six months to maintain INR at 2.0 if sinus rhythm restored; for patients who underwent mechanical valve replacement, INR was maintained between 1.7 and 2.5 regardless of the existence of atrial fibrillation.
Neonates with critical aortic and pulmonary stenosis underwent successful balloon valvuloplasty. Four patients with transposition of great arteries with intact interventricular septum had successfully balloon atrial septostomy.
Repair procedures are further segmented into closure procedures, annuloplasty, valvuloplasty, and transcatheter mitral valve repair while replacement procedures are further segmented into transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR).
* Balloon valvuloplasty In this minimally invasive ("keyhole surgery") procedure, a catheter with an inflatable balloon at the tip is inserted into the femoral artery in the groin, and guided into the heart.
The patient was scheduled for surgery and underwent repair of the septal defect in addition to the tricuspid mitral valvuloplasty.

The initial study among high-risk patients compared TAVR to standard therapy -- but not open-heart surgery -- such as balloon valvuloplasty. This procedure threads a catheter with a balloon at its tip through a blood vessel to the faulty valve, where the balloon inflates to widen the defective valve.
In many institutes, transcatheter balloon aortic valvuloplasty (TBAV) is the first line therapy for neonatal CAS (5).

According to the company, the large bore vascular closure system (XPro System) is an automated suture-mediated closure device to simultaneously deliver two pairs of sutures, specifically targeting percutaneous large bore procedures, including Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR), Thoracic Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (TEVAR) and percutaneous Balloon Aortic Valvuloplasty (BAV) procedures.
