BACKGROUND: Heart failure (HF) is the main cause of death in adult congenital heart disease (ACHD). AIMS: We aimed to characterize HF-related hospitalization of patients with ACHD, and to determine HF risk factors and prognosis in this population. METHODS: We prospectively included 471 patients with ACHD admitted to our unit over 24 months. Clinical and biological data and HF management were recorded. Major cardiovascular events were recorded for ACHD with HF...

REVIEW
Fabien Picard, Serge Doucet, Anita W Asgar
The drug-coated balloon (DCB) has emerged as an additional tool in the arsenal of interventional cardiology devices; it delivers antiproliferative drugs to local arterial tissue by single prolonged coated balloon angioplasty inflation, and prevents restenosis, leaving no implant behind. This strategy theoretically decreases the risk of late inflammatory response to device components, without preventing positive remodelling. DCBs, when used carefully and with a good technique, may have a role in the treatment of lesion subsets, such as in-stent restenosis, small vessel disease or side branch bifurcations, in which the implantation of a drug-eluting stent is not desirable or is technically challenging...

With the advances in congenital cardiac surgery and postoperative care, an increasing number of children with complex congenital heart disease now reach adulthood. There are already more adults than children living with a congenital heart defect, including patients with complex congenital heart defects. Among these adults with congenital heart disease, a significant number will develop ventricular dysfunction over time. Heart failure accounts for 26-42% of deaths in adults with congenital heart defects. Heart transplantation, or heart-lung transplantation in Eisenmenger syndrome, then becomes the ultimate therapeutic possibility for these patients...

BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular disease is the primary cause of death in women. Prevention, screening and diagnosis are generally implemented at later stages and less frequently than in men, and provision of treatment is not optimal in women. AIMS: To assess the relevance of targeted screening for myocardial ischaemia in women with multiple risk factors, and to identify which specific factors target women more effectively. METHODS: We undertook a prospective observational study with retrospective data collection based on a cohort of symptomatic or asymptomatic women with multiple cardiovascular risk factors...

#7
REVIEW
Mihai Strachinaru, Jose Castro-Rodriguez, Thierry Verbeet, Marie-Dominique Gazagnes
The left atrial septal pouch (LASP) is formed by incomplete fusion of the septum primum and septum secundum, leaving a cavity open towards the left atrium, but without interatrial shunting. There is no recommendation concerning strategy in the presence of a LASP, especially in the setting of stroke. The aim of this review was to determine whether the LASP could be incriminated as the aetiology of a stroke. We included all pertinent publications on the subject, and calculated hazard ratios for ischaemic stroke and cryptogenic stroke...

REVIEW
Philippe Maury, Frederic Sacher, Anne Rollin, Pierre Mondoly, Alexandre Duparc, Katja Zeppenfeld, Sebastien Hascoet
Malignant ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death may late happen in repaired tetralogy of Fallot, although probably less frequently than previously thought, especially with the advent of new surgical techniques/management. Ventricular tachycardias are caused by reentry around the surgical scars/patches and valves. Many predictive factors have been proposed, which suffer from poor accuracy. There is currently no recommended indication for prophylactic implantable cardioverter defibrillator implantation-except maybe in the case of multiple risk factors-while radiofrequncy ablation may be proposed in secondary prevention with or even without a back-up implantable cardioverter defibrillator in selected cases...

BACKGROUND: Primary angioplasty with immediate stenting (IS) is the gold standard for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Deferred stenting (DS) has been proposed to limit periprocedural complications, and may influence stent size because of thrombus and spasm alleviation. AIM: We sought to study the effect of DS on stent size. METHODS: Over the study period, 258 patients underwent primary angioplasty for STEMI (DS, n=84; IS, n=174)...

BACKGROUND: Transcatheter stent-secured Glenn anastomosis, aiming to reduce the invasiveness of palliation in patients with univentricular heart defects, has been reported in large experimental animals. The advent of biodegradable stents and tissue-engineered vascular grafts will make this procedure a reality in human patients. However, the relationship between the superior vena cava (SVC) and the right pulmonary artery (RPA) is different in humans. AIM: To characterise vascular anatomy in children with univentricular hearts, regarding technical aspects and device design for this procedure...

BACKGROUND: Current guideline recommendations encourage culprit vessel only percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and multivessel disease. However, recent studies have shown a better clinical outcome in patients who receive multivessel PCI. AIM: To measure and compare clinical outcomes between partial revascularization (PR) versus complete revascularization (CR) in patients with STEMI and multivessel disease who underwent a cardiac rehabilitation programme...

BACKGROUND: Diagnosis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) in athletes can be challenging. AIMS: To ascertain parameters that differentiate patients with HCM from athletes with moderate left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy (LVH 13-15mm). METHODS: We retrospectively included 100 men: 50 elite rugby players (25 with moderate LVH and 25 with no LVH), 25 patients with HCM and moderate LVH and 25 controls. LV dyssynchrony was defined as the standard deviation of time to peak 2D longitudinal strain (16-segment model) and global strain components were computed from two- (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) speckle tracking...

BACKGROUND: After left atrial appendage closure (LAAC), various antithrombotic protocols have been suggested, but the optimal post-procedural antithrombotic strategy is still under debate. AIMS: To investigate the efficacy and safety of LAAC with an AMPLATZER™ Cardiac Plug (ACP) device (St. Jude Medical, Minneapolis, MN, USA) followed by single antiplatelet therapy. METHODS: Consecutive patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation and a contraindication for oral anticoagulants who underwent LAAC with an ACP device between 2012 and 2014 in two French centres were included...

BACKGROUND: Inflammation is involved during acute myocardial infarction, and could be an interesting target to prevent ischaemia-reperfusion injuries. Colchicine, known for its pleiotropic anti-inflammatory effects, could decrease systemic inflammation in this context. AIMS: To evaluate the impact of colchicine on inflammation in patients admitted for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). METHODS: All patients admitted for STEMI with one of the main coronary arteries occluded, and successfully treated with percutaneous coronary intervention, were included consecutively...

BACKGROUND: The Ross procedure is used in the treatment of selected patients with aortic valve disease. Pulmonary graft stenosis can appear in the long-term follow-up after the Ross intervention, but the factors involved and its clinical implications are not fully known. AIM: To describe the incidence, clinical impact and predictors of homograft stenosis and reintervention after the Ross procedure in a prospective series in a tertiary referral hospital. METHODS: From 1997 to 2009, 107 patients underwent the Ross procedure (mean age: 30±11 years; 69% men; 21 aged<18 years), and were followed for echocardiographic homograft stenosis (peak gradient>36mmHg) and surgical or percutaneous homograft reintervention...
