Prognostic Value of Post-Intervention Fractional Flow Reserve after Intravascular Ultrasound-Guided Second-Generation Drug-Eluting Coronary Stenting.

EuroIntervention 2019 Apr 23. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Tsuchiura Kyodo General Hospital, Ibaraki, Japan.

Aims: To investigate the prognostic value of fractional flow reserve (FFR) and novel index of residual diffuse disease after intravascular ultrasound-guided (IVUS-guided) second-generation drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation.

Methods And Results: We evaluated 201 patients (201 lesions) who underwent IVUS-guided second-generation DES implantation in the left anterior descending artery with pre- and post-intervention physiological evaluations. Post-intervention hyperemic pull-back pressure recording was used to quantify residual diffuse disease using the novel D-index defined as the difference between distal stent and far distal FFR values divided by distance.

The MITRA-HR study: design and rationale of a randomised study of MITRACLIP® transcatheter mitral valve repair in patients with severe primary mitral regurgitation eligible for high-risk surgery.

EuroIntervention 2019 04 16. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

Institut du Thorax, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Nantes, Nantes, France.

Aims: Percutaneous mitral valve repair has become an alternative to conventional surgery in patients suffering primary mitral regurgitation (MR) with a contraindication to surgery and could benefit patients at high surgical risk. The aim of the MITRA-HR study is to raise the level of evidence supporting the use of the MitraClip® device in primary MR patients with a pre-defined high risk for surgery.

Methods And Results: MITRA-HR is a prospective, multicentre, randomised study designed to compare mitral valve repair using MitraClip® with conventional surgery in patients with severe primary mitral regurgitation at high risk for surgery. Read More

Bioprosthetic or native aortic scallop intentional laceration to prevent iatrogenic coronary artery obstruction. Part 1: how to evaluate patients for BASILICA.

EuroIntervention 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA.

Coronary obstruction is a life-threatening complication of transcatheter aortic valve replacement. BASILICA (bioprosthetic or native aortic scallop intentional laceration to prevent iatrogenic coronary artery obstruction) seems to be an effective method for preventing that complication. In this article, we describe how to assess patients for their risk for coronary obstruction and how to evaluate for BASILICA, including defining coronary cusps fluoroscopic projections and analyzing coronary ostia eccentricity.

Patient-oriented composite endpoints and net adverse clinical events with ticagrelor monotherapy following percutaneous coronary intervention: Insights from the randomized GLOBAL LEADERS trial.

EuroIntervention 2019 Mar 19. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

NHLI, Imperial College London, London, United Kingdom, United Kingdom.

Aims: To evaluate the impact of 23-month ticagrelor monotherapy following one-month dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) on the rates of patient-oriented composite endpoints (POCE) and net adverse clinical events (NACE).

Methods And Results: The rates of site-reported Academic Research Consortium (ARC)-2 defined POCE (all-cause death, any stroke, any myocardial infarction or any revascularization) and NACE (POCE or bleeding type 3 or 5 according to the Bleeding ARC [BARC]) were reported up to two-years by intention-to-treat principle in the randomized, multi-centre, open-label GLOBAL LEADERS study comparing two antiplatelet strategies in 15,991 patients undergoing PCI. The experimental strategy consisted of aspirin with ticagrelor for one month followed by ticagrelor monotherapy for 23 months, whereas the reference treatment consisted of 12-month DAPT followed by 12-month aspirin monotherapy.

The Influence of Multidirectional Shear Stress on Plaque Progression and Composition Changes in Human Coronary Arteries.

EuroIntervention 2019 Mar 12. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Department of Cardiology, Biomedical Engineering, Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Aims: Local wall shear stress (WSS) plays an important role in the onset of atherosclerotic plaque formation, however it does not fully explain plaque progression and destabilization. We are the first to investigate the influence of multidirectional WSS features on plaque progression and plaque composition changes in human coronary arteries.

Methods And Results: Coronary artery imaging using biplane angiography and virtual-histology intravascular ultrasound (VH-IVUS) was performed in twenty patients with coronary artery disease at baseline and after six-month follow-up. Read More

Alcohol Septal Ablation for Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy: A Contemporary Reappraisal.

EuroIntervention 2019 Mar 12. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Department of Cardiovascular Sciences, Sapienza University, Rome, Italy.

Percutaneous alcohol septal ablation (ASA) is an effective and minimally invasive therapeutic strategy to resolve left ventricular outflow tract obstruction (LVOTO) in patients with hypertrophic cardiomy-opathy who remain symptomatic on maximally tolerated medical therapy. Firstly performed by Sig-wart in 1994, the procedure consists in determining an iatrogenic infarction of basal interventricular septum to reduce LVOTO and alleviate symptoms. Since its first description, numerous studies demonstrated its efficacy and safety, proposing ASA as a valid and attractive alternative to surgical septal myectomy. Read More

Enhanced platelet inhibition by clopidogrel and risk of bleeding in patients requiring oral anticoagulation after drug-eluting stent implantation.

EuroIntervention 2019 Mar 5. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

Klinik und Poliklinik für Innere Medizin I, Klinikum rechts der Isar der Technischen Universität München, Munich, Germany.

Aims: Clopidogrel is the P2Y12 inhibitor of choice in patients who undergo PCI and have an indication for oral anticoagulation (OAC). Prediction of the bleeding risk is of major interest in this population. The aim of this analysis was to investigate whether an enhanced platelet inhibition by clopidogrel measured by platelet function testing (PFT) with the Multiplate analyzer is associated with an increased bleeding risk in patients on triple antithrombotic therapy.

Oval stenting in left pulmonary artery stenosis: a novel double balloon technique to prevent airway compression in single ventricle.

EuroIntervention 2019 Mar 5. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

Department of Paediatric Cardiology, Wilhelmina Children's Hospital, University Medical Centre Utrecht, Utrecht, the Netherlands.

Aims: Left pulmonary artery (LPA) stenosis is common in patients with cavopulmonary connections. Stent implantation is the treatment of choice, but may be complicated or contra-indicated by left main bronchus (LMB) compression due to limited retro-aortic space after Damus-Kaye-Stansel (DKS) or Norwood operation. This study describes a novel double balloon technique of LPA stenting in patients at risk for LMB compression. Read More
