Abstract

The performance of the Carpentier-Edwards supra-annular (CE-SAV) porcine bioprosthesis is compared with the Carpentier-Edwards standard (CE-S) porcine bioprosthesis at 7 years. The standard prosthesis was implanted in 1,195 patients between 1975 and 1987, while the supra-annular prosthesis was implanted in 1,956 patients between 1982 and 1989. The total follow-up for the standard prosthesis was 8,850 patient-years with a mean follow-up of 7.4 years, while for the supra-annular prosthesis it was 7,317 years with a mean of 3.7 years. The follow-up for the standard prosthesis was 96.7% and for the supra-annular prosthesis was 97.6%. The freedom from structural valve deterioration (SVD) for aortic replacements is 96.1 +/- 0.9% for CE-S and 97.6 +/- 1.4% for CE-SAV at 7 years (p = NS). The freedom for mitral replacements from SVD is 89.1 +/- 1.7% and 88.6 +/- 2.8%, respectively, for CE-S and CE-SAV (p = NS). The freedom for multiple replacements at 7 years was 80.0 +/- 4.5% for CE-S and 97.8 +/- 1.5% for CE-SAV (p less than or equal to 0.05). The freedom from SVD for the age group equal to or less than 35 years is 79.0 +/- 4.7% for CE-S and 85.0 +/- 9.4% for CE-SAV (p = NS). The freedom for the age group 36-50 years is 85.2 +/- 2.8% and 90.4 +/- 4.5%, respectively, at seven years for the CE-S and CE-SAV prostheses (p = NS).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS).
