BACKGROUND: The novel J-Valve (JC Medical Inc, Burlingame, CA, USA) was developed to cope with aortic valvular disease by facilitating accurate positioning. We present the first one-year results regarding the safety and efficacy of the J-Valve system implantation in patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) or aortic regurgitation (AR) undergoing transapical-transcatheter aortic valve implantation. METHODS: This prospective multicenter study enrolled 107 high-risk patients (mean age 74...

BACKGROUND: Investigating regarding a predicted risk score of incident atrial fibrillation (AF) for an Asian general population has not been enough. Whether addition of electrocardiogram (ECG) variables to risk factors improves prediction of incident AF is unclear in a context that ECGs are extensively used at medical check-ups and outpatient clinics in Japan. METHODS: Participants undergoing periodic health check-ups during 2008-2014 followed-up by December 2015 including 96,841 (65...

BACKGROUND: High on-treatment platelet reactivity (HPR) under clopidogrel treatment is frequently observed in hemodialysis (HD) patients. In such patients, 10mg of prasugrel has reportedly inhibited platelet reactivity more adequately compared with 75mg of clopidogrel. However, the efficacy of 3.75mg prasugrel in Japanese HD patients is largely unknown. METHODS: A total of 41 Japanese coronary artery disease patients under HD who received aspirin and clopidogrel were enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Although cardiac sarcoidosis is associated with poor prognosis, diagnosis of the disease is challenging and the sensitivity and specificity of diagnostic modalities are limited. This study was performed to evaluate the potential of serum microRNAs (miRNAs) as diagnostic biomarkers for cardiac sarcoidosis. METHODS: We performed genome-wide expression profiling for 2565 miRNAs (Human-miRNA ver.21) using peripheral blood samples from 5 patients with cardiac sarcoidosis (61±9 years) and 3 healthy controls (54±7 years)...

INTRODUCTION: C-reactive protein (CRP) is an established marker for vascular inflammation and predictor of adverse cardiovascular events, but the prognostic value of preprocedural CRP in coronary artery disease (CAD) patients who have undergone percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) remains controversial. Furthermore, the impact of CRP levels during follow-up in CAD patients after PCI on long-term adverse clinical outcomes is uncertain. We evaluated the association between high-sensitivity (hs)-CRP values at follow-up angiography and long-term clinical outcomes in CAD patients after coronary intervention...

BACKGROUND: Fractional flow reserve (FFR)-guided percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) could improve outcome compared with angiography-guided PCI. However, the economic impact of FFR-guided PCI remains largely unknown in the medical system in Japan. We evaluated the impact of treatment strategy modification by FFR measurement on the direct medical cost using a model analysis with a decision tree model in Japan. METHODS: For the clinical parameters set in the model, the findings from CVIT-DEFER registry were adopted...

BACKGROUND: Although subtraction coronary computed tomography angiography (S-CCTA) has recently been developed to improve the diagnostic ability in patients with severe calcification, increase in radiation exposure remains a concern. The usefulness of S-CCTA using a low-radiation dose protocol was investigated. METHODS: S-CCTA in 320-row area detector CT was performed on 84 consecutive patients with suspected obstructive coronary artery disease with Agatston score ≥100...

BACKGROUND: Esophageal injury (EI) is a serious complication that occurs after catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF), however predictable factor of EI is unclear. METHODS: Among 308 patients who underwent AF ablation, upper gastrointestinal tract endoscopy was performed the next day after ablation to examine for EI. To define the primary factor that predicts EI, patients' characteristics, number and amount of radiofrequency energy applied to the posterior wall, ablation procedure, and the shortest distance between esophagus and posterior left atrium measured on contrast computed tomography (SD-CT) were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Management of adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) patients requires understanding of its complex morphology and functional features. An innovative imaging technique has been developed to display a virtual multi-planar reconstruction obtained from contrast-enhanced multidetector-computed tomography (MDCT) corresponding to the same cross-sectional image from transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). The aim of this study is to assess the usefulness of this imaging technology in ACHD patients...

There is accumulating evidence that vascular inflammation plays critical roles in pathophysiology of atherosclerosis. It is widely accepted that both innate and adaptive immune responses are important for initiation and progression of atherosclerosis, which mainly consist of monocytes, macrophages, neutrophils, T lymphocytes, and B lymphocytes. Moreover, inflammatory biomarkers such as high-sensitivity C-reactive protein and interleukin-6 are known to predict future cardiovascular events, as well as conventional low-density or high-density lipoprotein cholesterol...

Treatment goals in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) include improved quality of life and exercise capacity as well as improved life prognosis. In our experience, only remarkable reductions in pulmonary arterial pressure (PAP) improve long-term survival. Lowering PAP could contribute to reverse remodeling by reducing hemodynamic stress. Proper and prompt use of PAH-specific drugs lowers PAP in patients with PAH. Upfront combination therapy with different PAH-specific drugs and quickly establishing high-dose epoprostenol lowers PAP sufficiently to improve prognosis in patients with PAH...

BACKGROUND: Physicians estimate the frailty in elderly patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) to aid in the decision making with respect to oral anticoagulant (OAC) therapy. There are limited data on the safety of OAC therapy in non-severe frail elderly patients. We evaluated the risk factors of bleeding among non-severe frail octogenarians with AF taking OACs. METHODS: Among 430 consecutive AF patients aged 80 years and over with non-severe frailty, we enrolled 346 patients [167 men, 83...

BACKGROUND: Plasma levels of atherothrombosis-related markers such as endothelial biomarkers have been reported to predict the risk of first acute coronary syndrome (ACS) events. Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) by balloon angioplasty and stenting established as a treatment for ACS enabled early discharge and early clinic care. The procedure of PCI, however, may itself be associated with arterial injury with endothelial dysfunction. The clinical significance of those biomarkers for second events in patients after PCI has not yet been completely understood to identify patients who need strict follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Loss of skeletal muscle mass and low nutritional status are major complications of severe chronic heart failure (CHF) and have been associated with poor prognosis. This study aimed to identify the nutritional status of outpatients with CHF based on their body composition, such as skeletal muscle index (SMI) and serum amino acid concentration. METHODS: We compared the body composition data and results of blood samples, including the serum amino acid concentration, of patients with CHF and those of controls...

BACKGROUND: In asymptomatic patients with severe degenerative mitral valve regurgitation (MR), early surgery is often performed in experienced centers. The patient- and valve-related results and the quality of life after surgery in these patients remain insufficiently explored. METHODS: Between 1/2000 and 12/2015, 83 asymptomatic patients (mean age 56.6±12.6 years, 21 female) without any complications related to long-lasting MR underwent early surgery. Follow-up clinical and echocardiographic data and health-related quality of life assessment (SF-36) were studied and matched to the general population...
