Abstract:

Degenerative aortic stenosis is one of the most frequent valvular disease. About 25% from the people over 65 years old had aortic sclerosis and about 4% from the inhabitants older then 75 years old had aortic stenosis. Aortic valve replacement (AVR) is the treatment of choice. The overall postoperative mortality of this operation is under 5% especially in large volume surgical centers. For the patients older then 80 years old and with severe comorbidities the postoperative mortality rate of AVR operation is over 15%. For this category of patients the best approach is AVR using a minimally invasive approach, especially the percutaneous approach. The paper describes the different tehniques and valvular prosthesis for minimally invasive AVR. The data from the literature - actual indications, valvular prosthetic types and results of different minimally invasive tehniques - are discussed.
