Risk Stratification of New Persistent Left Bundle Branch Block After Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation.

Am J Cardiol 2022 May 18. Epub 2022 May 18.

Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiology, University Hospitals Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland, Ohio. Electronic address:

Previous studies reported that new-onset persistent left bundle branch block (NOP-LBBB) was related to worse outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). However, these results can be confounded by the presence of permanent pacemaker (PPM) implantation before and after TAVI. Long-term outcomes and the risk stratification of NOP-LBBB not having PPM implantation before and after TAVI have not been fully investigated. Read More

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement With Self-Expanding ACURATE neo2: Postprocedural Hemodynamic and Short-Term Clinical Outcomes.

JACC Cardiovasc Interv 2022 May 10. Epub 2022 May 10.

Civil Hospital and University of Brescia, Brescia, Italy.

Objectives: The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of the ACURATE neo2 transcatheter heart valve (THV) in patients with severe aortic valve stenosis.

Background: The first-generation ACURATE neo THV was associated with a non-negligible occurrence of moderate or greater paravalvular aortic regurgitation (AR) following transcatheter aortic valve replacement. To overcome this issue, the ACURATE neo2 iteration, which incorporates a taller outer skirt aimed at reducing the occurrence of paravalvular AR, has recently been developed. Read More

J Invasive Cardiol 2022 May 19. Epub 2022 May 19.

Interventional Cardiology Department, Mazzoni Hospital, Via degli Iris 1, 63100 Ascoli Piceno, Italy.

Comparison of 26-mm Evolut and 23-mm Sapien 3 Valves in TAVR for Small Aortic Annulus.

J Invasive Cardiol 2022 May 19. Epub 2022 May 19.

62 W Seventh Ave, Suite 450, Spokane, WA 99204 USA.

Background: Patients with small aortic annuli (SAA) are prone to higher post-transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) transvalvular gradients and development of prosthesis-patient mismatch (PPM). In many patients with SAA, the choice of TAVR valve commonly involves choosing between the 26-mm Medtronic Evolut 2 (ME26) or the 23-mm Edwards Sapien 3 valve (ES23). We compared echocardiographic and clinical outcomes in patients with SAA undergoing TAVR with either valve. Read More

The Surgical Strategy for Progressive Dilatation of Aortic Root and Aortic Regurgitation After Repaired Tetralogy of Fallot: A Case Report.

Front Cardiovasc Med 2022 3;9:840946. Epub 2022 May 3.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University, Hefei, China.

It has been found that postoperative progressive dilatation of aortic root is not rare for adult patients with repaired Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), which leads to severe aortic regurgitation or even fatal dissection. Therefore, clinically, surgical treatment for both regurgitated aortic valve and dilated root is needed based on preoperative assessments and individual treatment strategies. Read More

Clinical Impact of Computational Heart Valve Models.

Materials (Basel) 2022 May 5;15(9). Epub 2022 May 5.

Wallace H. Coulter School of Biomedical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA 30332, USA.

This paper provides a review of engineering applications and computational methods used to analyze the dynamics of heart valve closures in healthy and diseased states. Computational methods are a cost-effective tool that can be used to evaluate the flow parameters of heart valves. Valve repair and replacement have long-term stability and biocompatibility issues, highlighting the need for a more robust method for resolving valvular disease. Read More

Novel insights into bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) aortopathy: Long non-coding RNAs TUG1 and MIAT are differentially expressed in BAV ascending aortas.

Cardiovasc Pathol 2022 May 16:107433. Epub 2022 May 16.

The University of Sydney, Sydney Medical School, Faculty of Medicine and Health, Camperdown, New South Wales, Australia; Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Department of Cardiology, Camperdown, New South Wales, Australia.

Background: Whilst a combination of genetically mediated vulnerability and haemodynamic insult is suspected to contribute to bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) aortopathy, the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms are poorly understood.

Methods: Utilising RT-qPCR, we compared the expression of 28 potentially relevant long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) in aortic tissue from BAV patients undergoing aortic surgery for aortopathy, to healthy controls. Relative lncRNA expression was measured using ΔΔCT, with fold-change calculated as RQ=2. Read More

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, University of Health Sciences, Gülhane Training and Research Hospital, Ankara 06010, Turkey.

Pseudoaneurysm of mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa is a rare entity related to mostly infective endocarditis and surgical trauma of aortic valve. Its diagnosis may be missed following trans-thoracic echocardiographic assessment. Therefore, further imaging investigation such as transesophageal echocardiography and computed tomographic angiography may play a key diagnostic role. Read More
