  • autologous
  • To assess the clinical implementation and report preliminary results of a novel technique called the Ozaki procedure for stentless aortic valve replacement through reconstruction of the valve leaflets from autologous pericardium. (smw.ch)
  • The use of autologous pericardium in combination with excellent haemodynamics may have the potential to overcome the structural disadvantages of biological aortic valves, to be beneficial in infective endocarditis, and to represent an alternative for patients with small annuli. (smw.ch)
  • published their technique, which involves the use of autologous pericardium and was studied in a large patient cohort with excellent long-term follow-up [ 5 , 6 ]. (smw.ch)
  • As the first centre for cardiac surgery in Europe, we started performing aortic valve replacement with autologous pericardium in September 2015 after CE certification. (smw.ch)

  • collagen
  • The structural response of collagen fibrils in pericardium and other tissues when subjected to strain and the effect of cross linking on those structural changes are not well understood. (rsc.org)
  • The collagen fibril orientation index (OI) and D -spacing was measured on pericardium subjected to strain using synchrotron-based small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS). (rsc.org)
  • clinical
  • Diseases of the pericardium are relatively common with varied clinical symptoms and features that can result from localized disease or be a manifestation of system illness. (springer.com)
  • organ
  • As distinct from the Western medical concept of pericardium, this concept from Traditional Chinese Medicine is more a way of describing a set of interrelated parts than an anatomical organ. (wikipedia.org)
