Mount Sinai first in US to implant aortic valve prosthesis to treat severe aortic stenosis
Date:12/21/2010

ial will help establish this treatment as an effective option for selected patients with severe aortic stenosis."

"In the past, high risk patients suffering from the most severe forms of aortic stenosis were often treated by balloon aortic valvuloplasty, which is effective for approximately six months. CoreValve at Mount Sinai gives us another tool to continue to treat the sickest of patients and provide long-lasting relief," said Dr. Sharma.

Aortic stenosis is a heart condition that occurs when the aortic valve narrows, preventing it from properly opening and closing, and diminishing blood flow between the heart and the rest of the body. The reduced blood flow increases pressure within the heart, causing the heart to weaken and function poorly. When aortic stenosis becomes severe and symptoms develop, it is life-threatening.

The first recipient of the Transcatheter CoreValve in U.S. is a 88-year-old male with recurrent heart failure due to severe aortic stenosis, whose symptoms recurred despite undergoing balloon aortic valvuloplasty three months earlier. His aorta was highly calcified, precluding traditional surgical aortic valve replacement. CoreValve implantation was deemed the only option for him to prolong his life span, and he underwent the procedure on December 17.

The Medtronic CoreValve System is a new technology designed to replace a diseased aortic heart valve without open heart surgery and without surgical removal of the diseased valve. In the Medtronic CoreValve U.S. Clinical Trial, the replacement valve is delivered primarily through a small opening in the femoral artery, threaded through arteries and across the aorta, and deployed in the native aortic valve. Once in place, the CoreValve is designed to take over the native valve's function and ensure that oxygen-rich blood flows into the aorta and circulates throughout the body.
