PMID:  17126155     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report on structural valve deterioration in patients with the Medtronic Freestyle aortic bioprosthesis (Medtronic, Inc, Minneapolis, MN), including spontaneous perforation of the Valsalva sinus. These occurred in four prosthesis in 3 patients using the modified subcoronary method or full root technique. One patient died of ruptured pseudoaneurysm and the others survived reoperation well. Careful follow-up is required after Freestyle bioprosthesis implantation.
