Manufacturing Perspectives in Engineering Heart Valves

  • Summary of Materials and Manufacturing Perspectives in Engineering Heart Valves

Valvular heart diseases (VHD) that cause stenosis and regurgitation in heart valves, such as congenital, rheumatic, and degenerative heart illnesses, require constant clinical monitoring. Aortic or pulmonary valve anomalies are responsible for 33% of congenital heart disorders. Although patients with VHD have received transcatheter therapies and minimally invasive operations, the bulk of valve replacement surgeries still use open-heart techniques.

Novel Surfaces in Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Circuits

It's difficult to strike a balance between systemic anticoagulation and clotting. The endothelium manages the equilibrium between anticoagulant and prothrombotic systems in proper hemostasis. Because of the blood-surface interaction during ECLS, systemic anticoagulation is required to reduce the risk of clotting. UNFH has a short half-life, is easy to titrate at the bedside, and is reversible with protamine.
