Fecha de lectura: 15-06-2015 Patient-prosthesis mismatch (PPM) has been identified as a risk factor for mortality after aortic valve replacement. Recently PPM has been also reported to increase the risk of structural valve degeneration (SVD) in patients receiving a bioprosthetic aortic valve. The aim of the present study was to compare the incidence of reoperation because of SVD in patients with mismatch to that of a population without mismatch.
