Ann Cardiol Angeiol (Paris) 2019 Dec 11;68(6):450-452. Epub 2019 Nov 11.

Département de Cardiologie, clinique Pasteur, Toulouse, France.

Percutaneous aortic valve implantation in patients with bicuspid aortic valve has long been the subject of controversy or even regarded as contra-indicated. Recently, the availability of second-generation valves as well as an improved understanding of valve anatomy and sizing have resulted in outcomes which are equivalent to those achieved in tricuspid valves. This technique may, therefore, be proposed to patients at high or intermediate surgical risk, whose anatomy is suitable for TAVI. Read More

Right ventricular outflow tract diseases are historically outcomes of surgical reconstruction for heart defects in neonates or children (Tetralogy of Fallot, Ross surgery). This kind of surgery performed during childhood lead often to dysfunctional right ventricular outflow tract (stenosis, leak) in older infants or young adults. In this case, reintervention on the right ventricular outflow tract would be associated with a high surgical risk. Read More

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is currently becoming the treatment of choice for patients with calcific aortic stenosis. Despite several technical improvements, the incidence of conduction disturbances has not diminished and remains TAVI's major complication. These disturbances include the occurrence of left bundle branch block and/or high-grade atrioventricular block often requiring pacemaker implantation. Read More

[TAVI in women, very encouraging results].

Ann Cardiol Angeiol (Paris) 2019 Dec 23;68(6):429-433. Epub 2019 Oct 23.

ICPS Jacques-Cartier, Ramsay générale de santé, 6, avenue du Noyer-Lambert, 91300 Massy, France; Hôpital Claude-Gallien, 91480 Quincy-sous-Sénart, France.

The population of elderly patients comprises a high percentage of women. This population is more vulnerable due to the presence of numerous comorbidities and is, therefore, particularly exposed to the risk of aortic valve degeneration, resulting in aortic valve stenosis whose symptoms are predictors of poor short-term outcomes. In the presence of symptomatic aortic stenosis, the recommended therapeutic option in this vulnerable population is the implementation of transcatheter aortic valve implantation, preferably via the femoral route.

Valvular disease is the second indication of cardiac rehabilitation (CR) after coronary artery disease. Patients suffering valvular disease are addressed to CR after valvular repair, and are usually old. Valvular replacement are the most frequent, and more and more patients being treated by TAVI are addressed to CR. Read More

[What antithrombotic treatment should we prescribe after transvalvular aortic valve implantation?]

Ann Cardiol Angeiol (Paris) 2019 Dec 22;68(6):462-467. Epub 2019 Oct 22.

ACTION Study Group, Inserm UMRS_1166, institut de cardiologie, Sorbonne université, Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital, AP-HP, 47, boulevard de l'Hôpital, 75013 Paris, France. Electronic address:

The performance and indications of transvalvular aortic valve implantation or TAVI has considerably expanded and is now the first therapeutic line option in the management of severe aortic stenosis. The targeted population shares both high risk of ischemic complications, particularly stroke or subclinical leaflet thrombosis of the bioprothesis, as well as hemorrhagic complications, strongly correlated to death. Based on previous experience with intracoronary stents, a dual antiplatelet therapy has been recommended by experts' consensus. Read More

Electronic address:

Compassionally reserved for inoperable patients in 2002, Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation has now a place almost equivalent to surgical valve replacement. The pioneering teams first succeeded in demonstrating a benefit on the mortality of extremely serious patients, while managing a learning curve that seemed unreachable without a strong partnership with cardiac surgeons. This win/win challenge enabled cardiologists to surpass the limits they did not dare to brave (management of large arterial approach, annular rupture and tamponade) and surgeons to appropriate the endovascular's culture.

Département de cardiologie, hôpital européen Georges-Pompidou, AP-HP, Paris, France; Université Paris Descartes, Paris, France; Inserm Unité 970, Équipe 4, Paris, France. Electronic address:

Mitral regurgitation (MR) is currently the most frequent valvular heart disease, and the second most operated valve in Europe. Around 50% of patients presenting severe MR are denied surgery, despite the adverse prognosis associated with the absence of treatment, due to comorbidities and/or advanced age. During the previous years, percutaneous treatment of MR, whether by replacement or, more frequently, by repair, has been developed, providing an alternative for those patients who are deemed at prohibitive, but also, high surgical risk.

[TAVI and coronary revascularization].

Ann Cardiol Angeiol (Paris) 2019 Dec 21;68(6):423-428. Epub 2019 Oct 21.

Service de cardiologie, centre hospitalier universitaire Gabriel-Montpied, 58, rue Montalembert, 63000 Clermont-Ferrand, France.

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has become the major approach to manage the severe aortic stenosis in inoperable patients that frequently present a coronary artery disease. To date, the available data related to the impact of these coronary lesions on survival is conflicting. When indicated, coronary revascularization could be beneficial for proximal lesions when performed before or during TAVI. Read More

The number of TAVI procedures is rapidly increasing owing to the extension of indications. Procedural and long-term success warrant appropriate patient selection and rigorous preparation of the procedure during the pre-TAVI work-up. The aims of this work-up are several: validation of the indication, feasibility and safety of the procedure, selection of the prosthesis and of the route, anticipation of technical challenges.

[Common femoral artery bailout stenting with covered stent graft due to TAVR vascular complication: Clinical long term follow-up].

Ann Cardiol Angeiol (Paris) 2019 Nov 27;68(5):316-324. Epub 2019 Sep 27.

Service de cardiologie, Centre hospitalier Haguenau, 67, avenur du Pr René-Leriche, 67 500 Haguenau.

Background: Vascular complications are frequent in the context of transcatheter aortic valve replacement and may require the implantation of a covered stent graft in the common femforal artery. However, common femoral artery is considered to be at high risk of stent fracture or occlusion due to high mobility of the hip joint.

Patients And Methods: We analyzed medical records of patients with transcatheter aortic valve replacement related vascular complications between 2015 and 2018, treated with commom femoral artery transluminal angioplasty or surgery. Read More

Service de cardiologie, centre hospitalier d'Avignon, 305, rue Raoul-Follereau, 84000 Avignon, France.

Cocaine is a potent sympathomimetic drug usually associated with cardiotoxicity, including ventricular arrhythmia, systemic hypertension and acute myocardial infarction. It constitutes the most frequent cause of drug-related death reported by medical examiners in the US, and these events are most often related to the cardiovascular manifestations of the drug. However; to the best of our knowledge; cocaine induced acute myocarditis has very rarely been reported. Read More
