BACKGROUND: Sleep-related disordered breathing is common in patients with chronic heart failure. AIM: To assess the efficacy of short-term nocturnal ventilatory therapy combined with exercise training (V+ET) compared with exercise training alone (ET) in patients with chronic heart failure with sleep-disordered breathing. METHODS: Patients in New York Heart Association functional class II-IIIb, with an apnoea-hypopnoea index (AHI)>15/h, and enrolled in a cardiac rehabilitation programme, were centrally randomized to V+ET or ET...

BACKGROUND: New therapeutic targets are required for ischaemic heart disease; our study was designed to assess the theoretical foundation and experimental basis underlying the use of a new anticytokine agent, interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1ra), in this setting. AIM: To investigate the cardioprotective properties of IL-1ra in terms of inhibition of apoptosis and improvement in systolic and diastolic functions of ischaemia/reperfusion (I/R)-injured cardiomyocytes, via a reduction in the inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) receptor-mediated Ca2+ overload induced by myocardial I/R injury...

BACKGROUND: The outcome of cardiac amyloidosis (CA) has been reported mainly in stable populations; limited data are available in patients referred for acute heart failure (AHF) to an intensive cardiac care unit (ICCU). AIMS: To address the characteristics and outcomes of patients with confirmed CA admitted to an ICCU for AHF and then to identify the predictors of evolution to cardiogenic shock. METHODS: All patients with CA referred to an ICCU for AHF between 2009 and 2015 were included...

BACKGROUND: Heart failure and atrial fibrillation share common mechanisms that may contribute to hypercoagulability and thrombotic risk. Elevated von Willebrand factor (vWF) concentration has been associated with increased risk of thromboembolism and cardiovascular events. AIM: To investigate whether increased vWF plasma concentration predicts occurrence of a composite endpoint (all-cause death and stroke) in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF)...

The development of structural interventional catheterization for acquired or congenital heart disease was made possible through concomitant advances in catheterization techniques/tools and imaging techniques (fluoroscopy, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography). Imaging should provide an accurate view of the lesions and the surrounding cardiac structures, as well as the medical devices and catheters used. Here, we address the subject of image fusion. The principle of image fusion is based on the superposition of several imaging techniques: real-time fluoroscopy and multislice imaging performed offline or ultrasound imaging performed simultaneously...

Although substantial progress has been made in recent decades in reducing mortality and performing optimal revascularization in patients with myocardial infarction, ischaemic heart disease, including acute coronary syndrome, remains the leading cause of mortality worldwide. One of the remaining challenges is to better detect, prevent and treat extended myocardial damage despite angiographically optimal revascularization. Several indices are available in clinical practice to evaluate myocardial damage, infarct size and potential myocardial recovery...

BACKGROUND: Quantitative assessment of primary mitral regurgitation (MR) using left ventricular (LV) volumes obtained with three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (3D TTE) recently showed encouraging results. Nevertheless, 3D TTE is not incorporated into everyday practice, as current LV chamber quantification software products are time consuming. AIMS: To investigate the accuracy and reproducibility of new automated fast 3D TTE software (HeartModelA.I. ; Philips Healthcare, Andover, MA, USA) for the quantification of LV volumes and MR severity in patients with isolated degenerative primary MR; and to compare regurgitant volume (RV) obtained with 3D TTE with a cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) reference...

BACKGROUND: Predictive factors associated with normal blood pressure (BP) after unilateral adrenalectomy for primary aldosteronism (PA) are not clearly identified. AIMS: To evaluate the predictive value of arterial stiffness before surgery on BP after surgery. METHODS: During 2009-2013, 96 patients with PA due to unilateral adrenal adenoma who underwent surgery were enrolled in a multicentre open-label, prospective study. Aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV) was assessed before surgery...

BACKGROUND: Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has revolutionized the prognosis of inoperable patients with severe aortic valve stenosis. Yet, the implantation of expensive prostheses in patients with comorbidities may be questionable in an era when healthcare costs are becoming a major concern. AIM: The objective of this study was to assess whether the TAVR procedure is profitable in a high-volume French hospital. METHODS: Consecutive patients eligible for transfemoral TAVR using the SAPIEN bioprostheses (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, CA, USA) were included retrospectively in this single-centre study between September 2014 and December 2015...

Percutaneous approaches to treat structural heart diseases are growing in number and complexity. Multimodality imaging is essential for planning and monitoring such interventions. The combination of three-dimensional transoesophageal echocardiography with fluoroscopy is the cornerstone of interventional imaging. However, these two modalities are displayed on separate screens, and are handled by different physicians, which requires a complex mental reconstruction for the interventional team. To overcome this issue, echocardiographic-fluoroscopic fusion imaging has been introduced recently in clinical practice...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation (PPVI) is a routine treatment for dysfunctional right ventricular outflow tract. Infective endocarditis (IE) is a major concern. AIM: To report French experience with the Melody™ valve (Medtronic Inc., Minneapolis, MN, USA). METHODS: All patients who underwent PPVI were recorded in a multicentre French national survey. Demographic and procedural data were collected from patients with IE...

BACKGROUND: An optimal maximum time of 60minutes has been recommended in recent guidelines for the first evaluation and treatment of patients with acute heart failure (AHF); however, this has not been tested prospectively. AIM: To analyze the impact of a time-to-treatment (TTT) strategy of <60minutes on the in-hospital outcome of patients with AHF. METHODS: During a single 1-month period, we consecutively enrolled all patients hospitalized with AHF in a prospective cohort...
