  • Long-term assessment of posterior leaflet extension for ischemic mitral regurgitation
  • Hemodynamic and clinical performance of sutureless aortic bioprosthesis
  • Long-term outcome post modified Maze procedure for atrial fibrillation
  • Assessment of ATS-3f bioprosthesis when used within an aortic valved-conduit
