OBJECTIVE: Transitions in the spectrum of valvular heart diseases (VHDs) in developed countries over the 20th century have been reported from clinical case series, but large, contemporary population-based studies are lacking. METHODS: We used nationwide registers to identify all patients with a first diagnosis of VHD at Swedish hospitals between 2003 and 2010. Age-stratified and sex-stratified incidence of each VHD and adjusted comorbidity profiles were assessed...

Prolonged left atrial electromechanical conduction time is related with atrial electrical remodeling, and is predictive of the development of atrial fibrillation. The aim of our study was to examine whether left atrial electromechanical conduction time (EMT) and left atrial strain as measured by speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) are predictors for the development of atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with mitral stenosis (MS) at 5-year follow-up. A total of 81 patients (61% females; mean age 38.1 ± 12...

A 79-year-old man with history of aortic stenosis, status post bioprosthetic aortic valve replacement, episodes of bacteremia, and endocarditis presented to hospital with fever. Clinical assessment led to suspicion of possible endocarditis. Initial interpretation of transesophageal echocardiogram was inconclusive without vegetation in mitral/aortic valve. An In-leukocyte scan demonstrated increased uptake in the area of aortic valve, suggestive of infection. Further review of the transesophageal echocardiogram showed signs of annular abscess...

Background: Mitral valve resistance (MVR) is a hemodynamic consequence of mitral stenosis but it has no clear threshold and it has a shortage of data to be reliable. Purpose: is to investigate match and mismatch between opening area and resistance especially in patients with moderate and mild mitral stenosis. Materials: This cross section case control study comprised 88 patients with moderate and mild rheumatic mitral stenosis. Transthorathic echocardiographic study estimated: mitral valve area (MVA) both by planimerty (2D) and pressure half time (PHT), mitral valve score (MVS), mean transmitral pressure gradient (MPG), diastolic filling time(DFT), left ventricular out flow tract diameter (LVOTd) and velocity time integral (LVOT vti) , the MVR was calculated as: MPG/aortic flow ratio [(LVOTd) (LVOTvti)/ DFT] in dynes...

Aims. The Assessment of left ventricular (LV) function remains a clinical challenge especially in patients with preserved LV ejection fraction (EF) and valvular heart diseases (VHD). Mechanical dispersion is supposed to be a strong predictor of events and, to be related to the extent of fibrosis. Regional cardiac work is a new validated and very promising approach to quantify LV-function. We investigated the differences in mechanical dispersions and global LV work (totW) and wasted work fraction (WWF) in normal subjects and in patients with severe primary mitral regurgitation (MR) and severe aortic stenosis (AS)...

Maternal heart disease complicates 0.2-3% of pregnancies. The optimal management of the pregnant patient with cardiac disease depends on the co-operative efforts of the obstetrician, the cardiologist and the anesthesiologist involved in peripartum care. A comprehensive understanding of physiology of pregnancy and pathophysiology of underlying cardiac disease is of primary importance in provision of obstetric analgesia or anesthesia for these high-risk groups of patients. We report a successful and uncomplicated use of epidural anesthesia for labor and delivery in patient with combined aortic and mitral stenosis...

We report a case of rheumatic heart disease with severe mitral stenosis having cyanosis and low oxygen saturation on pulse oximetry. The findings of clinical examination and low values on pulse oximetry were inconsistent with the findings of normal partial pressure of oxygen and oxygen saturation on arterial blood gas analysis, leading to diagnostic dilemma. In such clinical scenario, the anesthesiologist should be aware and vigilant about the differential diagnosis of low oxygen saturation on pulse oximetry...

The optimal antithrombotic therapies for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) and MitraClip implantation have not been well established. We conducted a narrative review from currently available studies between January 2002 and May 2016 to highlight the advantages and disadvantages of antithrombotic therapy use in cardiac catheter-based therapeutic techniques. Recently, these techniques have dramatically altered the approach towards valvular heart diseases management. The introduction into clinical practice, of TAVI for severe aortic stenosis and MitraClip for mitral regurgitation, has revolutionized interventional cardiology...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Although the regression of pulmonary hypertension (PH) in mitral stenosis (MS) has been studied over varying periods postintervention, corresponding studies on the cardiac chamber alterations after surgery are very limited. We sought to determine the degree of reversal of these and the clinical status in connection with that of pulmonary artery pressures (PAPs) in the early and late postoperative periods. METHODS: The preoperative, early, and 1-year postoperative data - functional class (FC), cardiothoracic ratio (CTR) in chest X-ray (CXR), and echocardiographically left atrium (LA), right atrium (RA), right ventricle (RV), left ventricle (LV), and pulmonary artery (PA) dimensions, PAP, tricuspid regurgitation (TR) - of 50 patients who had mitral valve replacement (MVR) for MS with PH were retrospectively analyzed for correlations with PAP (Pearson's), and their change (t-test), in relation to that in PAP...

INTRODUCTION: Rheumatic mitral stenosis is the most common Valvular Heart Disease encountered during pregnancy. Balloon Mitral Valvuloplasty (BMV) is one of the treatment option available if the symptoms are refractory to the medical management and the valve anatomy is suitable for balloon dilatation. BMV with Inoue balloon is the most common technique being followed worldwide. Over the wire BMV is a modified technique using Joseph Mitral Valvuloplasty (JOMIVA) balloon catheter which is being followed in certain centres...
