Predictive Roles of Neutrophil-to-Lymphocyte Ratio and C-Reactive Protein in Patients with Calcific Aortic Valve Disease.

Int Heart J 2019 Feb 8. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Shandong Provincial Hospital Affiliated to Shandong University.

The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and C-reactive protein (CRP) are emerging indirect blood markers to roughly reflect the inflammation level in our body while some pathological changes occurring in aortic valve tissue. Few recent studies demonstrated that NLR is related to calcific aortic valve disease (CAVD). However, the extent of the relationship between them and the impact of CRP on CAVD are not clear.

Biventricular Increases in Mitochondrial Fission Mediator (MiD51) and Proglycolytic Pyruvate Kinase (PKM2) Isoform in Experimental Group 2 Pulmonary Hypertension-Novel Mitochondrial Abnormalities.

Front Cardiovasc Med 2018 25;5:195. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Department of Medicine, Queen's University, Kingston, ON, Canada.

Group 2 pulmonary hypertension (PH), defined as a mean pulmonary arterial pressure ≥25 mmHg with elevated pulmonary capillary wedge pressure >15 mmHg, has no approved therapy and patients often die from right ventricular failure (RVF). Alterations in mitochondrial metabolism, notably impaired glucose oxidation, and increased mitochondrial fission, contribute to right ventricle (RV) dysfunction in PH. We hypothesized that the impairment of RV and left ventricular (LV) function in group 2 PH results in part from a proglycolytic isoform switch from pyruvate kinase muscle (PKM) isoform 1 to 2 and from increased mitochondrial fission, due either to upregulation of expression of dynamin-related protein 1 (Drp1) or its binding partners, mitochondrial dynamics protein of 49 or 51 kDa (MiD49 or 51).

Association of Structural and Functional Cardiac Changes With Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement Outcomes in Patients With Aortic Stenosis.

JAMA Cardiol 2019 Feb 6. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Division of Cardiovascular Diseases, Department of Internal Medicine, Heart & Vascular Institute, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Importance: Severe aortic stenosis causes pressure overload of the left ventricle, resulting in progressive cardiac dysfunction that can extend beyond the left ventricle. A staging system for aortic stenosis has been recently proposed that quantifies the extent of structural and functional cardiac changes in aortic stenosis.

Objectives: To confirm the reproducibility of a proposed staging system and expand the study findings by performing a survival analysis and to evaluate the association of aortic stenosis staging with both cardiac and noncardiac post-transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) readmissions.

A rare cause of ischemic stroke: cardiac myxoma. Case report and review of literature.

Rom J Morphol Embryol 2018 ;59(3):903-909

Department of Internal Medicine, University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Craiova, Romania;

A 46-year-old female diagnosed several years ago with arterial hypertension and an ischemic stroke with significant recovery was admitted for dyspnea on usual physical activity and fatigue. Physical examination revealed signs of heart failure with crackles on both lung bases, distented jugular veins, accentuated pulmonic valve closure (P2) and tricuspid regurgitation murmur. Echocardiography identified a large tumor in the left atrium, suggestive of atrial myxoma, which caused a severe functional mitral stenosis and produced severe pulmonary hypertension. Read More

Melody valve in mitral position: Complete fracture causing acute mitral stenosis in a child.

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv 2019 Feb 31;93(2):E101-E104. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Division of Pediatric Cardiology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota.

We present a case of a 7-year-old boy with a history of multiple mitral valve interventions and subsequent Melody valve placement in the mitral position, who presented with acute mitral stenosis due to complete fracture of the Melody stent. He was born early with severe mitral and tricuspid insufficiency due to valvular dysplasia, and ended up with 4 sternotomies before the age of 2 due to mitral valve dysfunction and recurrent prosthetic valve thrombosis. He then developed mixed stenosis and regurgitation at age 6, and to avoid another sternotomy, valve-in-valve therapy with off-label use of a 20-mm Melody valve was done with hybrid procedure via trans-apical approach.
