"Assessment of different interventional treatments of aortic valve diseases"

The purpose of this thesis is to analyse aortic valve disease and its treatment options (surgical and percutaneous), in a critical and timely manner. 

Since aortic valve replacement remains the treatment of choice for this pathology, this thesis will focus on the various types of bioprothesis available today by analysing their design, hemodynamic performance, implant technique, and ease of use. This was achieved through original research and complex clinical cases description treated at the hospital.
