BACKGROUND: The LAmbreۛ occluder is a novel device for percutaneous left atrial appendage closure (LAAC). The presented study aimed to report the initial experience in implantation of the novel LAmbre for LAAC in patients with non-valvular AF. METHODS: We conducted a prospective, observational, cohort registry study to evaluate the feasibility of percutaneous LAAC using the LAmbre occlude. RESULTS: Thirty patients (15 female, mean age 77...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess the impact of different access-site closure strategies, suture or closure device (Proglide, Abbott Vascular), on vascular and bleeding complications after percutaneous mitral valve repair (MitraClip, Abbott Vascular). BACKGROUND: Considering the high-risk profile in patients receiving percutaneous mitral valve repair, complications related to the large 24 Fr access sheath and its relation to the closure technique have not been evaluated so far...

Chronic oral anticoagulation therapy is the standard therapy for preventing thromboembolic events in patients with atrial fibrillation. However, oral anticoagulation has been associated with an increased risk of bleeding events, and despite the improvements linked to the introduction of direct oral anticoagulants, more than one third of atrial fibrillation patients still remain untreated. Over the past decade, percutaneous left atrial appendage closure has emerged as a valid alternative to anticoagulation therapy for the prevention of stroke/systemic embolism in patients with atrial fibrillation...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a common surgical management of morbid obesity. Major complication rate is 3-8%. Staple line leak is one of the most serious complications. In a small group of patients, a gastro-pulmonary fistula is formed. Endoscopic and minimally invasive measures are the first line of treatment with considerable success rate. There are very poor data in the literature what should be done in cases of failure. In this paper, we report our positive experience with definitive surgical repair...

BACKGROUND: Although the femoral approach is the most common route utilized in transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) it still carries a substantial risk of severe bleeding and vascular complications. The aim of our study was to compare the safety and efficacy of the complete percutaneous (CPC) approach with surgical cutdown and closure (SCC) in TAVI patients. METHODS: The study population comprised 683 patients with severe aortic stenosis who underwent transfemoral TAVI...

Dyspnea accounts for more than one-fourth of the hospital admissions from Emergency Department. Chronic conditions such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Congestive Heart Failure, and Asthma are being common etiologies. Less common etiologies include conditions such as valvular heart disease, pulmonary embolism, and right-to-left shunt (RLS) from patent foramen ovale (PFO). PFO is present in estimated 20-30% of the population, mostly a benign condition. RLS via PFO usually occurs when right atrium pressure exceeds left atrium pressure...

Percutaneous treatment of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in extreme premature infants is technically difficult, and therefore, often not consider as an alternative to surgery. The main objective of our work was to compare respiratory status prior and post ductal closure and morbi-mortality, in our series of preterm infants with percutaneous PDA closure versus surgical ligation in the same time-period. Retrospective review of all premature infants submitted to percutaneous and surgical PDA closure from January 2011 to December 2016...

AIM: To determine anatomic and hemodynamic echocardiographic predictors for patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) device vs coil closure. METHODS: Seventy-six patients who were referred for elective transcatheter PDA closure were enrolled in the study. All patients underwent full echocardiogram including measurement of the PDA pulmonary end diameter, color flow width and extent, peak and end-diastolic Doppler gradients across the duct, diastolic flow reversal, left atrial dimensions and volume, left ventricular sphericity index, and volumes...

Aims: Long-term results from catheter ablation therapy for atrial fibrillation (AF) remain uncertain and clinical practice guidelines recommend continuation of long-term oral anticoagulation in patients with a high stroke risk. Left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) with Watchman has emerged as an alternative to long-term anticoagulation for patients accepting of the procedural risks. We report on the initial results of combining catheter ablation procedures for AF and LAAC in a multicentre registry...

Paravalvular leak (PVL) remains a significant problem after transcatheter aortic valve replacement. PVL is associated with long-term morbidity and mortality. Percutaneous management of post-TAVR PVL seems to be feasible and should be adopted by the structural heart interventionalist.

A 73-year-old man was admitted for cardiac tamponade by oozing type left ventricular free wall rupture associated with acute myocardial infarction. Transthoracic echocardiography demonstrated moderate pericardial effusion and the presence of pseudoaneurysm within posterior wall. He went into shock with a systolic blood pressure of 60 mmHg. After introducing percutaneous cardiopulmonary support and intraaortic balloon pump, the sutureless repair was performed immediately. After having rehabilitation for right-sided hemiparesis, an elective pseudoaneurysm repair was planned...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia affecting more than 1.6 million patients in Germany. Based on demographic developments, an the number is expected to increase. Embolic strokes in AF patients are particularly severe, and individualized new oral anticoagulant (NOAC) therapy reduces the incidence of stroke in these patients by approximately 70%. Besides vitamin K antagonists, the NOACs rivaroxaban, dabigatran, apixaban, and edoxaban have been introduced into clinical practice; however, major bleeding still occurs at a rate of 2-3% per year...

Umberto Barbero, Siew Yen Ho
The left atrial appendage (LAA) has received increasing attention in recent years because of thrombi formation in patients with atrial fibrillation, which increases the risk of stroke. In patients who have contraindications for long-term oral anticoagulation therapy, percutaneous procedures are used to occlude the LAA and there are now several devices available for implantation, both endocardially and epicardially. Despite the high-resolution imaging techniques on hand today, limitations remain in providing information about wall thickness and neighboring structures; therefore, in-depth knowledge of the normal atrial anatomy is mandatory when considering such interventions...

Most simple renal cysts rarely require therapy. When it grows to such a large size, regardless of the presence of symptomatology, surgical intervention is required. In this study, we explored a new approach called percutaneous ureteroscopy laser unroofing for treatment renal cysts and evaluated its safety and efficacy. 71 simple renal cyst patients with surgical indications were enrolled, including 6 patients with a peripelvic cyst and 5 patients coexisting ipsilateral calculi. Under ultrasound guidance, an eighteen-gauge needle was placed inside the cyst cavity, and a guidewire was introduced followed by sequential dilation up to 28 F...

Atrial septal aneurysm (ASA) is a localized deformity of the interatrial septum, which protrudes into the right and/or left atrium. ASA with defects is a source of cardiac embolism. Although transcatheter closure is now a common procedure, it is still challenging in patients with complicated ASA. We describe a case of giant atypical multiperforated ASA with irregular mobility, which showed a rare "aneurysm in aneurysm" structure. Real-time three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography showed vivid images, which clearly demonstrated these irregular shaped defects mimicking the atriotomy view, and played a crucial role in guiding the transcatheter closure...
