Surgery may be necessary for some heart disease that may be in time. New studies introduce that it is ok and often better to have a new chance of being sent through a pipe to enter an artery.
The results are expected to change quickly to a treatment which affects millions of people – obstructed a rough or narrow aortic which doesn't allow blood to circulate properly. Until recently, poor work has to be done by setting up a hard device by using a heartscreen machine and gripping the old balloon and sewing in a new one.
Ten years ago, expanded bog pools were developed that could be driven to the heart through a cat in to a blood vessel and placed inside the old ball. But they will now only be used in people from very high or moderate people from dying from surgery. The new audits examined these levels of people in low risk of the job, as is the majority of patients, and found that they were good or better. ones better than morning.
"Our final level is" to make the tools of such a great care, "said Professor Joseph Cleveland, the heart surgeon of Colorado University that he had no role in the studies or links to the t companies that supported them. "It's a good thing for patients to be able to avoid major surgery," he said.
Results were published by the New England Journal of Medicine on Saturday and were to be discussed at the American College of Coronation conference in New Orleans on Sunday.
In one study, around 1,000 patients received routine surgical operations or an Edwards expandable life-expectation. After a year, 15 per cent of the operation and 8.5 per cent of other people had died, had suffered a stroke or had to re-attend hospital.
In the other inspection, 1,400 patients were provided or a Medtronic branch. Based on part-time results, researchers estimated 6.7 per cent of the surgical group and 5.3 per cent of other people had died of two years or had struck off a stroke.
In both investigations, some problems were more common with surgical activity, including heavy soreness and heart beat development called atrial fibrlation. In a Medtronic survey, 17 per cent of all accessible valves recipients at a later stage needed more than 6 per cent of operations.
Previous research has shown that costs are generally lower than achievable valves, which cost about $ 30,000 compared to $ 5,000 for surgical purposes, to a large extent because they need to stay. in shorter hospitals and fewer problems, says Cleveland, who is also a spokesperson for the College of cardiology.
In the USA, surgical plants have been replaced by surgeries. Only about 25,000 are planned for this year and Cleveland hopes to reduce next year and half in 2021.
He and other doctors say that the dense forests still need more exploration to find out if they are standing out with confidence. Catheter-based approaches have also been developed for problems with some other heart valves, such as melancholy, to be tested or tested.
