Who We Are

AVIATOR is a open Valve Research Network from the Heart Valve Society aiming at gathering international physicians and scientists involved in dystrophic aortic insufficiency including ascending aorta aneurysm as well as in the development of aortic valve repair with the goal to combine forces and share experience in order to advance knowledge in this field.

Our Mission

Is to provide a unique database (Aviator registry) open to any center taking care of patients with ascending aorta aneurysm (including root and/or supra coronary aorta) and/or isolated aortic insufficiency (including mixed congenital aortic valve disease) and/or planned for aortic valve or ascending aorta surgery for valve repair or valve replacement in order to evaluate the guidelines for surgical indication as well as the place of repair versus replacement with special focus on long term patients outcomes.
