Abstract

Aortic stenosis and mitral regurgitation are the most common valvular diseases in western countries. Surgical treatment, aortic valve replacement or mitral valve repair, is the treatment of choice. Innovative technologies could offer an alternative therapeutic option to the patients with increased operative risk. This article will report the early experience with these promising techniques as presented at the High-Tech 2004 meeting.
