BACKGROUND: Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a minimally invasive approach to aortic valve replacement. However, critical cardiovascular collapse can occur during the procedure for various reasons. CASE PRESENTATION: A 90-year-old man with severe aortic stenosis and left circumflex artery stenosis developed acute torrential mitral regurgitation (MR) during TAVR. The valve deployment process induced left ventricular dyssynchrony due to left bundle-branch block and myocardial ischemia in the left circumflex artery region with torrential MR...

Stress-induced heart failure, also known as Broken Heart Syndrome or Takotsubo Syndrome, is a phenomenon characterized as rare but well described in the literature, with increasing incidence. While more commonly associated with postmenopausal women with psychiatric disorders, this entity is found in the postoperative patient. The nonischemic cardiogenic shock manifests as biventricular failure with significant decreases in ejection fraction and cardiac function. In a review of over 3000 kidney and liver transplantations over the course of 17 years within two transplant centers, we describe a series of 7 patients with Takotsubo Syndrome after solid organ transplantation...

BACKGROUND: The current U.S. priority ranking for heart candidates is based on treatment intensity, not objective markers of severity of illness. This system may encourage centers to overtreat candidates. OBJECTIVES: This study sought to describe national variation in the intensity of treatment of adult heart transplantation candidates and identify center-level predictors of potential overtreatment. METHODS: The registrations of all U.S. adult heart transplantation candidates from 2010 to 2015 were collected from the SRTR (Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients)...

Obtaining neuroimaging in patients on cardiopulmonary support devices such as extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) can be challenging, given the complexities in monitoring, instrumentation, and associated hemodynamic lability. Transcranial Doppler (TCD) is used as an ancillary test for the assessment of cerebral circulatory arrest, but its use in non-pulsatile blood flow in venoarterial (VA) ECMO is not well described. We report the use of TCD in a patient on VA ECMO post-cardiac arrest for evaluation of death by neurological criteria...

Patients supported with extracorporeal life support (ECLS) can experience severe complications from increased left ventricular afterload. The intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) is thought to unload the left ventricle (LV) and is routinely used with ECLS despite conflicting evidence of its clinical benefit. This retrospective, single-center study examined the effect of the simultaneous use of IABP and centrally cannulated ECLS on patient outcomes and provides new insights into IABP-mediated LV unloading. Thirty patients supported with central ECLS and IABP (ECLS-I) were compared with 30 patients with central ECLS alone (ECLS) for cardiogenic shock...

Cardiogenic shock (CS) is a life-threatening condition associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The Impella (Abiomed Inc.) is an axial flow pump on a pigtail catheter that is placed across the aortic valve to unload the left ventricle by delivering non-pulsatile blood flow to the ascending aorta. It is used for high-risk percutaneous coronary intervention and CS. Areas covered: Percutaneous mechanical support devices are placed in a minimally invasive manner and provide life-saving assistance. We review Impella and other percutaneous devices such as intra-aortic balloon pump, TandemHeart, and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and the evidence supporting their use in the setting of CS...

REVIEW
Jörn Grensemann
Routine use of cardiac output (CO) monitoring became available with the introduction of the pulmonary artery catheter into clinical practice. Since then, several systems have been developed that allow for a less-invasive CO monitoring. The so-called "non-calibrated pulse contour systems" (PCS) estimate CO based on pulse contour analysis of the arterial waveform, as determined by means of an arterial catheter without additional calibration. The transformation of the arterial waveform signal as a pressure measurement to a CO as a volume per time parameter requires a concise knowledge of the dynamic characteristics of the arterial vasculature...
