Case description

Clinical video case: sutureless aortic valve replacement is a minimally invasive surgical technique designed to treat aortic valve disease. While it offers several advantages, such as reduced surgical time and potentially quicker patient recovery, it is not without its complications. One significant complication is paravalvular leakage, where the prosthetic valve does not seal properly, leading to a leakage of blood around the valve. This can result in reduced valve function, requiring further interventions or potentially leading to heart failure. Close postoperative monitoring and careful patient selection are crucial to mitigate this and other potential complications associated with sutureless aortic valve procedures.
