Publication on survival after aortic valve surgery - one of the finalists for the Heart Best Paper Award
Each year, the Heart editorial team selects the most meritorious research paper from the preceding year to receive the Heart Best Research Paper Award. One of the three finalists for this year's award was the publication "Relative survival after aortic valve surgery in patients with biscupid aortic valves" from researchers at the Thoracic Surgery group, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery, Karolinska Institutet.
“This study showed that the survival rate following aortic valve surgery in patients with bicuspid aortic valves is excellent and similar to that of the general population. These findings could facilitate patient education and counselling as well as clinical decision-making in patients with bicuspid aortic valves who will undergo, or who have undergone aortic valve surgery”, says Natalie Glaser, first author of the paper.
The study was led by Professor Anders Franco-Cereceda and co-authors are Veronica Jackson, Per Eriksson and Ulrik Sartipy.

The appointment to the Heart Best Paper Award is based on the number of citations, number of readers and Altmetric score for each paper. Then the editorial team selects the winner and finalists based on the relevance of the clinical question addressed by the research, the quality of the research study design and data presentation, and the potential long-term impact of the research findings.
