Unusual structural valve degeneration in a cloth-covered Starr-Edwards valve

, : Unusual structural valve degeneration in a cloth-covered Starr-Edwards valve. Asian Cardiovascular & Thoracic Annals 14(4): 333-335

Structural valve degeneration in a mechanical ball and cage prosthesis is a well-described entity. Here we describe an unusual case of structural valve degeneration of a cloth-covered composite-seat Starr-Edwards ball and cage valve prosthesis in the mitral position, where degeneration of the cloth covering of the seat of the valve led to significant intravalvular mitral regurgitation.
