Nice case!
What kind of cardial system you have used for mitral
valve replacement (Edwards-system? medtronic Corevalve system?) />What diameter (31 mm?) has this aortic bioprosthesis to fit closely
in mitrale position in a patient with severe LV dysfunction and
dilated LV?
Thanks a lot for this very interesting clinical case!
