Cardiological patients of the University Medical Center Mainz have recently been able to benefit from a new treatment option for a narrowed aortic valve. Since the beginning of January, cardiologists have implanted a new motor-driven and self-expanding heart valve in three patients across Europe for the first time. The advantage: the flap can be implanted more easily and safely, and leakages after implantation are further minimized.
