Aims: To describe temporal trends in adoption and performance of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) in Switzerland over a period of 5 years. Methods and Results: Between 2011 and 2015, a total of 3'493 patients were consecutively included in the SwissTAVI Registry (NCT01368250) and analyzed for the purpose of this study. The primary outcome measure was all-cause mortality at 1-year after TAVI. Over the five-year period, a six-fold increase in the number of procedures was observed, whereas the baseline surgical risk estimated by the Society of Thoracic Surgeon (STS) score declined (from 6...

Aims: We analysed the impact of bundle branch block (BBB) and pacemaker (PM) implantation on symptoms and survival after alcohol septal ablation (ASA) in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). Methods and Results: Among 1416 HCM patients from the Euro-ASA registry 58 (4%) patients had a PM and 64 (5%) patients had an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) before ASA. At latest follow-up (5.0±4.0 years) after ASA, 118 (8%) patients had an ICD and 229 (16%) patients had a PM...

Aims: Socioeconomic status (SES) is recognizably linked with incident heart failure (HF) risk and the association of SES with geography presents a potential target for geographical location of preventive health services. To better inform policy we sought to quantify the independent association between SES and incident HF and investigate differences by type of SES measure. Methods and results: MEDLINE and EMBASE were searched up to August 2018. Observational studies and randomized trials reporting adjusted HF incidence by stratified socioeconomic measures were included...

Background: Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) is characterized by transient left ventricular dysfunction with symptoms and ECG changes mimicking acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The objective of the present study was to evaluate in-hospital death and hospital readmission in patients with TTS and to compare outcomes to patients with AMI. Methods: Patients diagnosed with TTS and AMI were identified using the United States Nationwide Readmission Database from 2010-2014. In-hospital outcomes for the index admission, and rates and causes of 30-day readmissions were compared between TTS patients and AMI patients without TS...

Aims: Established surgical scores have limitations in delineating risk among candidates for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). Assessment of frailty might help estimate themortality risk and identify patients likely to benefit from treatment. The aim of the study was to develop a frailty score to guide the decision for TAVI. Methods and results: We conducted a prospective observational study in patients ≥ 70 yearsreferred for TAVI during 2011-2015...

Aims: The aim of this study was to identify medical and psychosocial risk factors for impaired health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and poor psychological adjustment (PA) in young adults with congenital heart disease (CHD). Methods and Results: A group of 188 patients (43% females, ages 18-30 years) with various types of CHD and 139 age-matched healthy controls (57% females) completed questionnaires assessing HRQoL, PA, social support, significant life events in the past year, education level, civil status, and employment status...

Aims: The management of anticoagulation therapy in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and cancer is challenging due to increased thrombotic and bleeding risks. We sought to determine the safety and efficacy of rivaroxaban in patients with AF and a history of cancer. Methods and Results: ROCKET AF randomized 14,264 patients with AF to rivaroxaban or warfarin with a median follow-up of 1.9 years. Cox regression models were used to assess the association between cancer history and clinical outcomes, and the relative treatment effect of rivaroxaban versus warfarin in these patients...

Background: Actigraphy is increasingly incorporated into clinical practice to monitor intervention effectiveness and patient health in congestive heart failure (CHF). We explored the prognostic impact of actigraphy-quantified physical activity (AQPA) on CHF outcomes. Methods: PubMed and Medline databases were systematically searched for cross-sectional studies, cohort studies or randomised controlled trials from January 2007 to December 2017. We included studies that used validated actigraphs to predict outcomes in adult HF patients...

Aims: To examine the association between fulfilment of performance measures supported by clinical guidelines recommendations and 1-year mortality among patients with incident heart failure (HF) in Denmark. Methods and results: A nationwide population-based follow-up study based on the Danish Heart Failure Registry. All Danish hospital departments caring for patients with HF. We identified 24,308 in-and outpatients diagnosed with HF from 2003 to 2010. Quality of care was defined as receiving the guideline recommended processes of care: use of echocardiography, New-York-Heart-Association -classification, treatment with angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors/angiotensin-II-receptor blocker, betablockers, physical training and patient education...

Aims : The prognosis of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for different subtypes of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) remains unclear. We compared short- and long-term mortality in patients undergoing PCI for unstable angina (UA), non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), and ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Methods and results: This was a retrospective cohort study of 13 184 patients (5966 STEMI, 5307 NSTEMI, and 1911 UA) undergoing PCI between 1 January 2005 and 30 November 2013 in a multi-centre registry...

Aims: Clinical heart failure (HF) guidelines recommend monitoring of creatinine and potassium throughout the initial weeks of mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRAs) therapy. We here assessed the extent to which this occurs in our health care. Methods and results: Observational study in 2007-2010 HF patients starting MRA therapy in Stockholm, Sweden. Outcomes included potassium and creatinine laboratory testing before MRA initiation and in the early (Days 1-10) and extended (Days 11-90) post-initiation periods...

Context: Quality-of-care registries have been shown to improve quality of healthcare and should be facilitated and encouraged. The data of these registries are also very valuable for medical data research.<b >While fully acknowledging the importance of re-using already available data for research purposes, there are concerns about how the applicable privacy legislation is dealt with. These concerns are also articulated in the new European law on privacy, the 'General Data Protection Regulation' (GDPR) which has come into force on May 25th 2018...

Aims: The current guidelines from the European Society of Cardiology and European Society of Anaesthesiology on non-cardiac surgery (ESC/ESA-NCS) divide surgical procedures into those associated with low (<1%), intermediate (1-5%), and high risk (>5%) of major adverse cardiac events (MACE). Evaluating surgical risk might be particularly appropriate in patients with recent stent implantation and thus we validated the ESC/ESA-NCS classification in patients undergoing NCS within 1 year after coronary drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation...

Introduction: The durable polymer (DP) of a drug-eluting stent (DES) serves no function once drug elution is complete. To ascertain the benefits of bioabsorbable polymer (BP) over DP DESs requires a longer follow-up period, to overcome the time taken for polymer absorption. The primary aim of this meta-analysis was to compare the safety and efficacy of BP-DES with the DP-DES over mid (2 years) to long-term (3 to 5 years) follow-up. Methods: A thorough computer-based search was performed using Ovid MEDLINE, EMBASE, Google Scholar, and PubMed databases...
