Valvular Heart Disease Epidemiology.

Med Sci (Basel) 2022 Jun 15;10(2). Epub 2022 Jun 15.

Allegheny Health Network, Pittsburgh, PA 15212, USA.

Valvular heart disease is a rapidly growing cause of global cardiovascular morbidity and mortality with diverse and evolving geographic distribution. The prevalence of rheumatic heart disease, the most common valvular heart disease (affecting approximately 41 million people), has been rising in developing nations, likely due to the expansion of the young adult population and the decrease in premature mortality that has resulted from improved access to antibiotics, microbiological testing, and echocardiography. Rheumatic heart disease has also been rising among the impoverished and, often, indigenous populations of developed nations, spurring public health initiatives that are aimed at alleviating healthcare disparities.

Adult Cardiac Surgery, Heart Center of Henan Provincial People's Hospital, Central China Fuwai Hospital, Central China Fuwai Hospital of Zhengzhou University , Zhengzhou 450003, China.

To discuss the clinical value of preserving subvalvular structure in mitral and aortic valve replacement surgery and its effect on left ventricular contractility. A total of 97 patients who underwent mitral valve replacement surgery in the Adult Cardiac Surgery of Heart Center of Henan Provincial People's Hospital, Central China Fuwai Hospital from June 2016 to December 2018 were selected as the research subjects, of whom 45 cases were preserved subvalvular structure and 52 cases were in the total resection group (intraoperative total resection of the mitral valve and subvalvular chordae tendineae). General cardiac function indexes and left ventricular function quantitative indexes were compared before and in 3 months and 6 months after the operation of the two groups; The changes of the overall longitudinal strain of the long axis of the apex and the overall circumferential strain of the short axis of the left ventricle determined by the two-dimensional speckle tracking technology were compared before and after the operation.

Use of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and cardiac magnetic resonance feature-tracking strain analysis to characterize and differentiate aortic annular strain patterns in aortic valve regurgitation versus normal aortic valves.

Arthur Hill

J Card Surg 2022 Jun 17. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Department of Surgery, Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery, University of California, San Francisco, California, USA.

Background: Understanding the aortic annulus is important for obtaining reproducible and durable aortic valve (AV) repair and allowing advances for transcatheter AV replacement treatment of aortic regurgitation (AR). Significant limitations exist when using echocardiography and computed tomography-based imaging with feature tracking at the aortic annulus.

Aims: Cardiac magnetic resonance is used to obtain regional longitudinal strain and can be modified to obtain circumferential annular strain at the fibrous and muscular portions of the AV annulus. Read More

Use of a sutureless aortic valve in reoperative aortic valve replacement.

JTCVS Tech 2022 Jun 26;13:31-39. Epub 2022 Feb 26.

Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery, University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle, Wash.

Objectives: Management of degenerated bioprosthetic aortic valves remains a challenge. Valve-in-valve transcatheter aortic valve replacement (AVR) has limited utility in the presence of small annuli/prosthetic valves. Sutureless valves may offer an advantage over traditional redo AVR by maximizing effective orifice area due to their unique design as well as ease of implant. Read More
