Increased mesenchymal podoplanin expression is associated with calcification in aortic valves.

Cardiovasc Pathol 2018 Dec 7;39:30-37. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

School of Pharmacy, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Eastern Finland, Kuopio, Finland. Electronic address:

Background And Aim Of The Study: Calcific aortic valve disease (CAVD) is a progressive disease starting from mild valvular sclerosis and progressing to severe aortic stenosis (AS) with calcified valves. The origin of the calcification is proposed to be mesenchymal cells which have differentiated towards an osteoblastic phenotype. Podoplanin is a glycoprotein expressed in the endothelium of lymphatic vessels and in osteoblasts and osteocytes, mesenchymal cells, as well as in many carcinomas and aortic atherosclerotic lesions.

Aortic stenosis of the neonate: A single-center experience.

J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2019 Jan 27;157(1):318-326.e1. Epub 2018 Sep 27.

Herma Heart Center, Division of Congenital Heart Surgery, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Wis.

Objectives: Because data for neonates are limited, optimal management of critical aortic stenosis remains controversial (balloon valvotomy [BV] or open valvoplasty [OV]). In a center with balanced experience in both methods, we hypothesized that OV can provide a better individualized approach than blunt BV and better serve long-term outcomes.

Methods: A retrospective review of data and follow-up (survival, freedom from operation/replacement) of all neonates, suitable for biventricular repair, undergoing aortic valve procedure (1989-2015), was performed. Read More

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

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv 2018 Oct 31. 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.
