OBJECTIVES: To assess the effect of body mass index (BMI) on outcome among patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) admitted for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). BACKGROUND: Being overweight or obese is associated with improved outcome following certain medical treatments, suggesting the existence of a BMI paradox. However, the relationship between BMI and mortality after TAVI remains controversial. METHODS: Patients were classified according to World Health Organisation criteria such as normal weight, overweight, or obesity according to their BMI (18...

REVIEW
M E Gimbel, J M Ten Berg
Elderly patients with an acute coronary syndrome are underrepresented in randomised controlled trials. Neither the European Society of Cardiology nor the American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology acute coronary syndrome guidelines provide specific recommendations for elderly patients. However, elderly patients are at higher thrombotic and bleeding risk compared with younger patients leading to difficulties in choosing the optimal treatment. In this review, we discuss the uncertainties we encounter in treating elderly patients with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome and suggest treatment options based on the existing literature...

PURPOSE: Data on MitraClip procedural safety and efficacy in the Netherlands are scarce. We aim to provide an overview of the Dutch MitraClip experience. METHODS: We pooled anonymised demographic and procedural data of 1151 consecutive MitraClip patients, from 13 Dutch hospitals. Data was collected by product specialists in collaboration with local operators. Effect on mitral regurgitation was intra-procedurally assessed by transoesophageal echocardiography. Technical success and device success were defined according to modified definitions of the Mitral Valve Academic Research Consortium (MVARC)...

INTRODUCTION: Left atrial appendage (LAA) closure has become of major interest for patients with atrial fibrillation intolerant to oral anticoagulation therapy (OAC). Patients with a contraindication to both OAC and antiplatelet therapy are not eligible for percutaneous LAA closure. We aimed to find an alternative treatment for these specific patients. METHODS: From March 2014 until December 2015 five patients were referred for percutaneous LAA closure. Alternative treatment was necessary due to an absolute contraindication to OAC and antiplatelet therapy (n = 4) or after previous failed percutaneous device implantation (n = 1)...

BACKGROUND: An important number of patients with suspected cardiac chest pain have non-obstructive coronary artery disease. Our purpose was to describe the clinical characteristics of patients with normal or near-normal coronary arteries in routine cardiological practice in a secondary care hospital. METHODS: In 2013, consecutive patients referred for invasive coronary angiography with suspected cardiac chest pain were analysed at a single-centre (Westfriesgasthuis, Hoorn, the Netherlands)...

INTRODUCTION: The risk of acute myocardial infarction in young women is low, but increases during pregnancy due to the physiological changes in pregnancy, including hypercoagulability. Ischaemic heart disease during pregnancy is not only associated with increased maternal morbidity and mortality, but also with high neonatal complications. Advancing maternal age and other risk factors for cardiovascular diseases may further increase the risk of ischaemic heart disease in young women. METHODS: We searched the coronary angiography database of a Dutch teaching hospital to identify women with acute myocardial infarction who presented during pregnancy or postpartum between 2011 and 2013...

OBJECTIVES: Renal sympathetic denervation has been studied as a potential therapeutic option for patients with therapy-resistant hypertension; however, a significant proportion of patients do not show a significant reduction in blood pressure and are classified as non-responders. The objective of the present study was to assess whether a redo renal denervation procedure increases response rates. METHODS: We present a case series of three consecutive renal denervation non-responders treated with the multi-electrode radiofrequency St...
