Multicentre study confirms the value of the ExoVasc PEARS procedure

 

The July issue of the British Journal of Cardiology carries a report on a multicentre study of 117 consecutive patients who received ExoVasc mesh implants for aortic root aneurysm from 2004 to 2017.  The report concludes that the operation achieves the objectives of valve-sparing root replacement, and it is seen as a low-risk conservative operation which is complementary to more invasive procedures, such as valve sparing root replacement or total root replacement.
