OBJECTIVES: We present our single-centre experience with the direct flow medical (DFM) trans-catheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) prosthesis addressing the impact of learning curve upon outcomes. BACKGROUND: The DFM has been recently introduced for TAVI. The prosthesis presents original design and implantation features. METHODS: Patients were divided into three groups according to the chronological implantation sequence that reflected technical skills acquisition of the entire team...

Percutaneous MitraClip placement for treatment of severe mitral regurgitation in high surgical risk patients is a commonly performed procedure and requires a transseptal puncture to reach the left atrium. The resulting iatrogenic atrial septal defect (iASD) is not routinely closed, yet the haemodynamic and functional consequences of a persisting defect are not fully understood. Despite positive effects such as acute left atrial pressure relief, persisting iASDs are associated with negative consequences, namely significant bidirectional shunting and subsequent worse clinical outcome...

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation is increasingly used to treat patients with severe aortic stenosis who are at increased risk for surgical aortic valve replacement and is projected to be the preferred treatment modality. As patient selection and operator experience have improved, it is hypothesised that device-host interactions will play a more dominant role in outcome. This, in combination with the increasing number of valve types and sizes, confronts the physician with the dilemma to choose the valve that best fits the individual patient...

AIMS: Acute aortic dissection (AD) requires immediate treatment, but is a diagnostic challenge. We studied how often AD was missed initially, which patients were more likely to be missed and how this influenced patient management and outcomes. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study including 200 consecutive patients with AD as the final diagnosis, admitted to a tertiary hospital between 1998 and 2008. The first differential diagnosis was identified and patients with and without AD included were compared...

Although the benefits of using the left internal mammary artery to bypass the left anterior descending artery (LAD) have been extensively ascertained, freedom from major cardiovascular events and survival after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) also correlate with the completeness of revascularisation. Hence, careful selection of the second-best graft conduit is crucial for CABG success. The more widespread use of saphenous vein grafts contrasts with the well-known long-term efficacy of multiple arterial grafting, which struggles to emerge as the procedure of choice due to concerns over increased technical difficulties and higher risk of postoperative complications...

Paravalvular leak (PVL) is a serious complication after surgical valve replacement or after transcatheter aortic valve replacement. Approximately 1-5% of PVLs can lead to serious clinical consequences, including congestive heart failure and/or haemolytic anaemia. For years, surgical re-intervention has been considered the treatment of choice for symptomatic patients with PVLs. However, surgical re-intervention is associated with a high risk of morbidity and mortality. Transcatheter PVL (TPVL) closure is a less invasive alternative to surgical re-intervention...

AIMS: Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of bifurcation lesions can be performed using various techniques. The aim of this study was to analyse the outcome of various techniques of bifurcation stenting in all patients undergoing bifurcation stenting at one large intervention centre in 2013, taking into account that more complex lesions might more often warrant a two-stent technique. METHODS AND RESULTS: This retrospective study included 260 consecutive patients who underwent non-primary PCI of a bifurcation lesion at the Catharina Hospital, Eindhoven, in 2013...

INTRODUCTION: Pulmonary vein (PV) reconnection is frequently the cause of recurrence of atrial fibrillation (AF) after ablation. The second-generation gold multi-electrode ablation (Gold-MEA) catheter has a new design possibly resulting in improved lesion formation compared with its predecessor. We aimed to determine the association between effective radiofrequency applications with the Gold-MEA catheter and outcome after AF ablation. METHODS: 50 consecutive patients with paroxysmal AF underwent Gold-MEA (PVAC GOLD(TM), Medtronic Inc...

BACKGROUND: Without assistance, smokers being admitted to the hospital for coronary heart disease often return to regular smoking within a year. OBJECTIVE: This study assessed the 12-month effectiveness of a telephone and a face-to-face counselling intervention on smoking abstinence among cardiac patients. Differential effects for subgroups varying in their socioeconomic status and intention to quit smoking were also studied. METHODS: A randomised controlled trial was used...
