Patients with advanced chronic renal dysfunction were excluded from randomized trials of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). The potential impact of chronic renal disease on TAVR prognosis is not fully understood. We aim to evaluate outcomes within a large cohort of patients who underwent TAVR distinguished by renal function. Baseline characteristics, procedural data, and clinical follow-up findings were collected from 10 high-volume TAVR centers in Europe, Israel, and Japan. Data were analyzed according to renal function...

AIMS: Dual-coil leads were traditionally considered standard of care due to lower defibrillation thresholds (DFT). Higher complication rates during extraction with parallel progression in implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) technology raised questions on dual coil necessity. Prior substudies found no significant outcome difference between dual and single coils, although using higher rates of DFT testing then currently practiced. We evaluated the temporal trends in implantation rates of single- vs...

INTRODUCTION: Ventricular tachyarrhythmias (ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation) can lead to aborted cardiac arrest or sudden cardiac death in patients with poor left ventricular function early after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Although it has been shown that the implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) can treat ventricular tachyarrhythmias and save lives in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy, it's use during the early phase post AMI has not been shown to reduce mortality...

BACKGROUND: It is not known whether the number of revascularizations modifies clinical outcomes in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy (ICM) implanted with cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) vs. an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD)-only. METHODS: In Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial-Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (MADIT-CRT), we evaluated the effect of CRT-D vs. ICD-only on heart failure (HF) or death, on ventricular tachycardia (VT), ventricular fibrillation (VF) or death, and on reverse remodeling in 592 ICM patients with left bundle branch block, by the number of pre-enrollment revascularizations (0, 1 or ≥ 2 revascularizations)...

BACKGROUND: Accurate risk stratification is pivotal for appropriate selection of patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis for either surgical or transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). We sought to determine whether recent risk prediction models developed specifically in TAVR patients enhance prognostication in comparison with previous surgical scores used in clinical practice (EuroScore I, EuroScore II, STS). METHODS: The Israeli TAVR Registry Risk Model Accuracy Assessment (IRRMA) study utilized a multicenter prospective TAVR database (n=1327) to perform a quantitative comparison between previous risk scores developed in either surgical or TAVR populations, with the present registry serving as an independent external validation set...

Intermediate- or low-risk patients with severe aortic stenosis were excluded from earlier transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) clinical trials; however, they are already being treated by TAVI despite a lack of data regarding the safety and efficacy in these patients. We aimed to assess the safety and efficacy of TAVI in patients at intermediate or low risk. Patients undergoing TAVI during 2008 to 2014 were included into a shared database (n = 1,327). Procedural outcomes were adjudicated according to Valve Academic Research Consortium 2 definitions...

Previous studies suggested that statin therapy reduces the risk of occurrence and recurrence of atrial fibrillation mainly in patients with coronary artery disease. Data regarding the effect of statins on the risk for the entire range of supraventricular arrhythmias (SVA) in mild heart failure (HF) with different disease causes are lacking. Multivariate Cox proportional hazards regression models were used to assess the effect of statin therapy, evaluated as a time-dependent covariate, on the risk of SVA and recurrent SVA (defined as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, atrial tachycardia, and supraventricular tachycardia) that were inappropriately treated with implantable cardioverter-defibrillator device in 1,790 patients enrolled in the Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation With Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy trial...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac resynchronization with defibrillators (CRT-D) reduces heart failure and mortality compared with defibrillators alone. Whether this applies to all ages is unclear. METHODS AND RESULTS: We assessed the association of age on heart failure and death as a post hoc analysis of the MADIT-CRT follow-up study, in which 1,281 patients with class I/II heart failure (HF) were randomized to CRT-D or implantable cardioverter-defibrillators alone. Different age groups (<60, 60-74, and ≥75 years) were evaluated over 7 years for mortality and HF events...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have shown that low blood pressure is associated with increased mortality and heart failure (HF) in patients with left ventricular dysfunction. Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) was shown to increase systolic blood pressure (SBP). Therefore, we hypothesized that treatment with CRT would provide incremental benefit in patients with lower SBP values. METHODS AND RESULTS: The independent contribution of SBP to outcome was analyzed in 1267 patients with left bundle brunch block enrolled in Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial With Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (MADIT-CRT)...

AIMS: We hypothesized that the relationship between LVEF and the risk of life-threatening ventricular tachyarrhythmias (VTAs) may modify the effect of a CRT device with a defibrillator (CRT-D) on VTA risk. METHODS AND RESULTS: The risk of fast (≥200 b.p.m.) ventricular tachycardia/ventricular fibrillation (VT/VF) and the benefit of CRT-D in reducing VT/VF were assessed by baseline LVEF (categorized as ≤30% or 30% and assessed as a continuous measurement) in 1783 patients with mild heart failure (HF) implanted with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) or CRT-D, enrolled in MADIT-CRT...

Data on risk factors for Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) in diabetic patients are scarce. Recently, it has been shown that metformin increases the Bacteroidetes/Firmicutes ratio; therefore, it may yield a protective effect against CDI. We aimed to assess risk factors for CDI in diabetic patients beyond antibiotic treatment, and to determine the impact of metformin therapy on the development of CDI in these patients. In this retrospective, case-control study, all consecutive CDI diabetic patients, from January 2009 to December 2013, were included and compared to consecutive diabetic patients without CDI, hospitalized during the same period and in the same departments...
