Forty-year survival with Smeloff-Cutter and Starr-Edwards prostheses

, : Forty-year survival with Smeloff-Cutter and Starr-Edwards prostheses. Annals of Thoracic Surgery 85(3): E14-E16

This case study describes a 40-year follow-up of a man who had a double valve replacement with Smeloff-Cutter aortic (Cutter Laboratories, Berkeley, CA) and Starr-Edwards mitral prostheses (Edwards Laboratories, Santa Ana, CA) when he was 34 years old. Double valve replacement was performed for aortic and mitral valve stenosis and insufficiency. To date, no surgical treatment has been required except a pacemaker implantation. The patient presented with a New York Heart Association functional class of I to II. Echocardiography revealed intact prostheses.
