Left Bundle Branch Block after Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation with Edwards Sapien 3 Valve: Influence of the Valve Depth Implantation.

Cardiovasc Revasc Med 2019 Nov 9;20(11):949-955. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Clinical Cardiology, Hospital Universitario HM Montepríncipe, Spain.

Objectives: The aim of this study is to determine the relation between the valve depth implantation and the new-onset left bundle branch block (LBBB) in patients treated with transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) using Edwards Sapien 3 (S3) prosthesis.

Background: LBBB is the most common conduction disturbance after TAVI. The S3 has been associated with a higher incidence of LBBB. A deep valve implant could be related to new-onset LBBB with S3.

Methods: Seventy-six consecutive patients treated with transfemoral TAVI with S3 were included. Electrocardiogram (ECG) registries were recorded at baseline, after the procedure, and before discharge. Valve depth implantation was determined in 40 patients by off-line analysis of the two/three-dimensional transeophageal echocardiogram (TEE) images, with measure of the valve stent percentage under the aortic annulus. Previous and new conduction anomalies were documented; and patient, anatomic and procedural characteristics were retrospectively analyzed.

Results: Complete atrioventricular block (AVB) incidence was 2.9%. LBBB after TAVI appeared in 39% of patients, being transient in almost half of the cases (permanent LBBB rate 20%). Patients with new-onset LBBB after TAVI were older, with a higher STS Score and a wider basal QRS. A deep valve position was associated with new-onset LBBB, with a ROC curve establishing a cut-off point of 34% of depth implant as risk factor for new-onset LBBB (sensitivity and specificity 0.8).

Conclusions: In transfemoral TAVI with S3 prosthesis, a higher valve implantation (<34% of valve stent introduced into the ventricle) may minimize the new-onset LBBB, especially in old and high-risk patients with a wide basal QRS.

Electrocardiographic changes and conduction disturbances after transfemoral aortic valve implantation with Edwards Sapien 3 prosthesis.

J Electrocardiol 2018 May - Jun;51(3):416-421. Epub 2018 Feb 20.

Clinical Cardiology Department, Hospital Universitario HM Montepríncipe, Madrid, Spain.

Objectives: The aim of this study is to describe electrocardiographic changes and conduction abnormalities in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI).

Methods: 76 patients who underwent TAVI using Edwards Sapien 3 prosthesis were included, comparing electrocardiographic registries at admission, post-procedure and before discharge.

Results: Patients after TAVI presented a longer PR interval, a wider QRS, and a longer corrected QT, with a left deviation of QRS axis and T waves; reversible changes that tended to correct in the following days after TAVI. Complete atrioventricular block incidence was 2.9%. New-onset left bundle branch block (LBBB) incidence was 39%, although solved in almost half of patients before discharge.

Conclusions: TAVI was associated with different reversible electrocardiographic changes that suggest a transient impact on the conduction system. One of every five patients presented permanent LBBB after valve implant.

Percutaneous closure of a giant coronary artery fistula after surgical pericardiectomy. Review of the literature.

Cardiovasc Revasc Med 2017 Jul - Aug;18(5):384-389. Epub 2017 Mar 9.

Anesthesiology, Hospital Universitario Madrid Montepríncipe, Madrid, Spain.

Coronary artery fistulae (CAF) are uncommon heart defects defined as a communication between a coronary artery and a cardiac chamber or vascular structure. They are frequently asymptomatic; nevertheless, they can produce angina, dyspnea or cardiac failure. CAF are believed to be congenital; however, isolated cases of CAF have been described as rare complications of cardiac surgery. We report the percutaneous closure of a giant CAF in an adult patient with angina and previous pericardiectomy.
