Four-Dimensional Magnetic Resonance after Ascending Aorta Replacement
and Aortic Valve Repair with HAART 300 Internal Annuloplasty Ring
The hemispherical aortic annuloplasty reconstructive technology (HAART)
is an internal geometric annuloplasty ring designed to restore a natural
elliptical shape to the aortic annulus as part of aortic valve repair.
We present 4D flow hemodynamic analysis before and after implementation
of the HAART ring in patients undergoing ascending aortic replacement.
HAART patients displayed similar or improved flow profiles when compared
to a patient undergoing ascending aortic replacement alone.
