BACKGROUND: Periodic repolarization dynamics (PRD) refers to low-frequency oscillations of cardiac repolarization, most likely related to phasic sympathetic activation. Increased PRD is a validated predictor of mortality after myocardial infarction and in ischemic heart disease, but has not been tested in aortic valve stenosis (AS). Here, we assessed PRD in patients with AS and tested its correlation with clinical and hemodynamic parameters as well as markers of heart rate variability (HRV)...

Surgical stress, liberation of cytokines associated with re-perfusion injury, and long standing use of immune suppressive medications in children recipients of orthotopic living related liver transplantation (OLRLT) pose cardiovascular risk. Reported cardiovascular adverse effects vary from left ventricular wall thickening, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy to resting ECG abnormalities, asymptomatic ST depression following increased heart rate and ventricular arrhythmias. Twenty-five consecutive children recipients of OLRLT were assessed by conventional 2-D, M-mode echocardiography and Doppler...

BACKGROUND: Clinicians often encounter patients with apparently discordant echocardiographic findings, severe aortic stenosis (SAS) defined by aortic valve area (AVA) despite a low mean gradient. A new classification according to flow state and pressure gradient has been proposed. We sought to assess the prevalence, characteristics and outcomes of patients with asymptomatic SAS with preserved left-ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) according to flow and gradient. METHODS AND RESULTS: In total 442 patients with SAS (AVAi<0...

BACKGROUND: Acute cerebral infarctions on diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are common after cardiothoracic surgery. However, most are asymptomatic and we aimed to identify features associated with clinical stroke symptoms. METHODS: Patients over 65 years of age undergoing surgical aortic valve replacement (AVR) for calcific stenosis were prospectively recruited (N = 196). All patients underwent neurological evaluation preoperatively and on postoperative days 1, 3, and 7, and MRI on planned postoperative day 5...

Calcific aortic stenosis (AS) is the most common form of valvular heart disease in Europe and North America. It is a progressive disease with a prolonged period of asymptomatic latency which eventually leads to critical left ventricular outflow tract obstruction necessitating surgical replacement of the valve. Statins are lipid-lowering drugs with a robust evidence base demonstrating clinical benefit in atherosclerotic coronary artery disease. There has therefore been significant interest in the potential benefit of statins in AS...

BACKGROUND: Stress echocardiography (SE) is widely used in Europe. No collective data have been available on the use of SE in Poland until now. AIM: To evaluate the number of SE investigations performed in Poland, their settings, complications and results. METHODS: In this retrospective survey, referral cardiology centers in Poland were asked to fill in a questionnaire regarding SE examinations performed from May 01, 2014 to May 01, 2015. RESULTS: The study included data from 17 university hospitals and large community hospitals which performed 4611 SE examinations, including 4408 tests in patients investigated for coronary artery disease (CAD) and 203 tests to evaluate valvular heart disease (VHD)...

The approach to managing asymptomatic or questionably symptomatic patients for aortic stenosis is difficult. We aimed to determine whether cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) is prognostically useful in such patients. Patients judged asymptomatic or questionably symptomatic for aortic stenosis with aortic valve area index <0.6 cm(2)/m(2) and left ventricular ejection fraction ≥0.50 were managed conservatively provided they had either (group 1) normal peak oxygen consumption and peak oxygen pulse (>83% and >95% of the predicted values, respectively) or (group 2) subnormal peak oxygen consumption or peak oxygen pulse but with CPET data pointing to pathologies other than hemodynamic compromise from aortic stenosis...

OBJECTIVE: Sex differences in risk factors of aortic valve calcification (AVC) by echocardiography have not been reported from a large prospective study in aortic stenosis (AS). METHODS: AVC was assessed using a prognostically validated visual score and grouped into none/mild or moderate/severe AVC in 1725 men and women with asymptomatic AS in the Simvastatin Ezetimibe in Aortic Stenosis study. The severity of AS was assessed by the energy loss index (ELI) taking pressure recovery in the aortic root into account...

BACKGROUND: Determinants of the progression of aortic stenosis (AS) remained unclear. Metabolic syndrome (MetS) and diabetes are suspected to play an active role but literature is scarce and results conflicting. We sought to assess their impact in an ongoing prospective cohort of asymptomatic patients with at least mild AS. METHODS: We enrolled 203 patients (73±9years, 75% men) with at least 2years of follow-up. Risk-factors assessment was performed at baseline...

REVIEW
Xin Zhang, Steven M Hollenberg
Patients with valvular heart disease (VHD) should be treated for diabetes, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia. They also should receive therapy for left ventricular dysfunction, undergo interval echocardiography, and participate in aerobic exercise. Valve replacement should be considered for patients with aortic stenosis (AS) and syncope, presyncope, heart failure, angina, or severe AS with left ventricular dysfunction. Valve replacement is performed with open or transcatheter procedures; the latter are preferred for patients with high surgical risk...

REVIEW
Steven M Hollenberg
The prevalence of valvular heart disease (VHD) in the United States was estimated to be approximately 2.5% in the 1990s. The prevalence currently is thought to be increasing because of more accurate diagnostic methods and aging of the population. Mitral regurgitation (MR) is the most common valve defect, followed by aortic stenosis (AS) and aortic regurgitation (AR). Degenerative disease is the most common etiology of MR, AS, and AR, though these forms of VHD also can be caused by congenital valve defects, systemic inflammatory diseases, endocarditis, and many other conditions...

OBJECTIVES: We sought to examine the prognostic utility of left ventricular (LV) global longitudinal strain (GLS) in asymptomatic patients with ≥III+ aortic regurgitation (AR), an indexed LV end-systolic dimension of <2.5 cm/m(2), and preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). BACKGROUND: Management of asymptomatic patients with severe chronic AR and preserved LVEF is challenging and is typically based on LV dimensions. METHODS: We studied 1,063 such patients (53 ± 16 years; 77% men) seen between 2003 and 2010 (excluding those with symptoms, obstructive coronary artery disease, acute AR/dissection, aortic/mitral stenosis, more than moderate mitral regurgitation, and previous cardiac surgery)...
