Description:

Aortic valve prosthesis-patient mismatch (AV PPM) occurs when the effective orifice area (EOA) of the prosthetic valve implanted is less than that of the normal human aortic valve. It is important to estimate the PPM prior to placement of a prosthetic aortic valve since it can affect the prognosis of the patient following the surgery.
