OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess how the introduction of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has changed clinical practice and outcome in patients who have previously undergone coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). BACKGROUND: A significant proportion of patients admitted for aortic valve replacement have previously undergone CABG and are therefore at increased operative risk in case of redo surgery. METHODS: In-hospital outcome data were analyzed from patients with or without previous CABG undergoing isolated surgical aortic valve replacement or TAVR in Germany from 2007 to 2013...

OBJECTIVE: Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is generally more expensive than surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) due to the high cost of the device. Our objective was to understand the patient and procedural drivers of cumulative healthcare costs during the index hospitalisation for these procedures. DESIGN: All patients undergoing TAVI, isolated SAVR or combined SAVR+coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) at 7 hospitals in Ontario, Canada were identified during the fiscal year 2012-2013...

BACKGROUND: The use of rapid-deployment aortic valve replacement (RD-AVR) has burgeoned in recent years. There are few studies comparing RD-AVR to conventional aortic valve replacement (cAVR) and no studies where both were inserted via full sternotomy. As such, we reviewed our experience and compared the two approaches. METHODS: From 2008 to 2015, 597 patients underwent isolated aortic valve replacement ± coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) at a single centre...

BACKGROUND: Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has become an alternative procedure for treating aortic stenosis (AS) in patients with advanced age and severe comorbidities. Ischemic heart disease (IHD) is present with AS in 40-50% of patients with typical angina. Considering the high operative mortality and morbidity rates in these patients, hybrid TAVI and off-pump CABG (OPCAB) have become realistic treatment options. METHODS AND RESULTS: Between August 2014 and November 2015, 12 patients were evaluated for simultaneous TAVI and OPCAB...

History of prior coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) is a frequent scenario encountered in patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis deemed inoperable and referred for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Aside from indices of frailty and other comorbidities, these patients remain at higher risk for peri-operative mortality and morbidity compared to their counterparts without prior CABG. Presence of concomitant peripheral arterial disease and patent left internal mammary artery (LIMA) graft pose further access related challenges...

INTRODUCTION: The need for permanent pacemaker implantation (PCM) following surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) is uncommon but can lead to increased hospital resource utilization. Using nationwide data, we sought to (1) identify hospital, patient, and procedure-level risk factors for PCM after SAVR and (2) determine incremental resource utilization. METHODS: We identified 659,692 patients from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample database who underwent SAVR with or without coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), mitral valvuloplasty (MVr), or mitral valve replacement (MVR) between 1998 and 2009...

BACKGROUND: Aortic valve replacement (AVR) and/or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) make up the majority of cardiac surgery with increasing demand as the population ages. Accuracy of risk stratification is important, in predicting adverse outcomes and selecting modality of intervention, but has been rarely studied for the combined AVR+CABG operation. We compared the prognostic utility of EuroSCORE, EuroSCORE II and Society of Thoracic Surgeons' (STS) Score for AVR+CABG. METHODS: All patients (n=450) undergoing AVR+CABG at Auckland City Hospital during 2005-2012 with mean follow-up of 4...

BACKGROUND: Patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) and previous coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery have increased risk for aortic valve replacement. Whether surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) or transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) offers better outcomes in this population is unclear. We aimed to assess outcomes of TAVR and SAVR in patients with previous CABG. METHODS: A systematic literature search of Medline, EMBASE and Cochrane library was conducted...

Many observational studies have reported outcomes after surgical aortic valve replacement (AVR), but there are no recent systematic reviews and meta-analyses including all available bioprostheses and allografts. The objective of this study is to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the outcomes after AVR with bioprostheses and allografts reported in the last 15 years. We conducted a systematic literature review (PROSPERO register: CRD42015017041) of studies published between 2000-15. Inclusion criteria were observational studies or randomized controlled trials reporting on outcomes of AVR with bioprostheses (stented or stentless) or allografts, with or without coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or valve repair procedure, with study population sizen≥ 30 and mean follow-up length ≥5 years...

BACKGROUND: Coronary subclavian steal syndrome (CSSS) is defined as retrograde flow in the internal mammary artery graft, after coronary artery bypass surgery, resulting in anterior wall myocardial ischemia. If undiagnosed, it may lead to significant infarction. Its incidence has been under-reported. CASE REPORT: A 74-year-old woman presented with sudden onset of typical angina, which was associated with dyspnea, nausea, and vomiting. Her medical history was significant for coronary artery disease, with prior coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), hypertension, diabetes type 2, dyslipidemia, hypothyroidism, and depression...
