[1] Aortic Valve Neo-cuspidization

[2] Aortic valve reconstruction surgery

Aortic valve reconstruction or “AVRec” is an advanced surgical technique devised by Professor Shigeyuki Ozaki at the Cardiovascular Surgery Department of Toho University, Ohashi Medical Center, Tokyo, Japan. Unlike the conventional method of implanting a prosthetic valve, this procedure uses the patient’s own pericardium. According to Professor Ozaki, “It does not require anti-coagulant therapy (such as warfarin) for post mechanical valve replacement surgery and compared with biological valves, it has the potential to achieve excellent long-term results owing to the low-impact physiological movement of the base of the valve (valve annulus).”
