Focused Issue on Current Challenges in Transcatheter Valve Therapies
Edited by Sabine Bleiziffer

Patient selection Redo aortic valve surgery versus transcatheter valve-in-valve implantation for failing surgical bioprosthetic valves consecutive patients in a single-center setting >>Magdalena Erlebach, Michael Wottke, et al.

Due to a considerable rise in bioprosthetic as opposed to mechanical valve implantations, an increase of patients presenting with failing bioprosthetic surgical valves in need of a reoperation is to be expected…
