Genetic and Developmental Contributors to Aortic Stenosis.

Circ Res 2021 Apr 29;128(9):1330-1343. Epub 2021 Apr 29.

The Herma Heart Institute, Section of Pediatric Cardiology, Children's Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI (P.D., J.F.J., H.K., J.L.).

Aortic stenosis (AS) remains one of the most common forms of valve disease, with significant impact on patient survival. The disease is characterized by left ventricular outflow obstruction and encompasses a series of stenotic lesions starting from the left ventricular outflow tract to the descending aorta. Obstructions may be subvalvar, valvar, or supravalvar and can be present at birth (congenital) or acquired later in life. Read More

Double-root inversion for complex malposition of the great arteries with tricuspid valve straddling.

Multimed Man Cardiothorac Surg 2021 03 8;2021. Epub 2021 Mar 8.

University Hospital of Geneva University Hospital of Laussane Switzerland.

Dextro-transposition of the great vessels associated with pulmonary stenosis, double-outlet right ventricle, and straddling of the tricuspid valve is an uncommon condition. Several treatment options are available for this malformation, but most of them are not optimal. For patients with transposition of the great vessels, the gold standard procedure, which is an arterial switch procedure, would usually be performed, whereas for patients with pulmonary stenosis, a Rastelli operation or a Nikaidoh procedure would be proposed.

J Cachexia Sarcopenia Muscle 2021 Mar 25. Epub 2021 Mar 25.

Department of Internal Medicine III, Cardiology, Angiology and Intensive Care Medicine, University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein Kiel, Kiel, Germany.

Background: Malnutrition is a hallmark of frailty, is common among elderly patients, and is a predictor of poor outcomes in patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis (AS). The Geriatric Nutritional Risk Index (GNRI) is a simple and well-established screening tool to predict the risk of morbidity and mortality in elderly patients. In this study, we evaluated whether GNRI may be used in the risk stratification and management of patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Read More

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement in Bicuspid Aortic Valve Stenosis.

Circulation 2021 Mar 8;143(10):1043-1061. Epub 2021 Mar 8.

Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Lille, Institut Cœur Poumon, Cardiology, Department of Interventional Cardiology for Coronary, Valves and Structural Heart Diseases (F.V., T.D., C.D., N.D., B.V., B.S., T.P., H.S., G.S., E.VB.).

After 15 years of successive randomized, controlled trials, indications for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) are rapidly expanding. In the coming years, this procedure could become the first line treatment for patients with a symptomatic severe aortic stenosis and a tricuspid aortic valve anatomy. However, randomized, controlled trials have excluded bicuspid aortic valve (BAV), which is the most frequent congenital heart disease occurring in 1% to 2% of the total population and representing at least 25% of patients 80 years of age or older referred for aortic valve replacement.
