Abstract

The objectives of this study were (1) to investigate the extent of erroneous and/or omitted information on death certificates of patients-implanted with Bjork-Shiley Convexo-Concave (BSCC) heart valves; (2) to determine whether this information could be associated with a possible under-reporting of acute mechanical failure of this valve.
