Abstract

Prosthetic valve obstruction is a rare but potentially lethal complication. The most frequent causes are thrombus and pannus formation, in the absence of infectious data. Diagnosis is not always easy using cardiac CT scanning and in 46%–85% of cases thrombus and pannus coexist, complicating the diagnosis. A rapid diagnosis is essential to avoid a fatal outcome of this pathology whose mortality, despite correct treatment, is high.

Resumen

La obstrucción de una válvula protésica es una complicación rara pero que puede ser letal. Las causas más frecuentes son la formación de trombos y pannus, en ausencia de datos infecciosos. El diagnóstico no siempre es sencillo recurriendo a la realización de tomografía computarizada (TC) cardiaca, y en el 46–85% de los casos coexisten trombo y pannus, por lo que el diagnóstico se complica. Un diagnóstico rápido es esencial para evitar un desenlace fatal de esta patología, cuya mortalidad, a pesar de un tratamiento correcto, es elevada.
