Acute coronary syndrome.TAVI

Kenan Yalta, Çağlar Kaya, Yüksel Aksoy, Mustafa Yılmaztepe, Fatih Kardaş
In recent years, transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has been considered a novel option for the management of surgically high-risk patients requiring aortic valve replacement. Presently described is a case of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) managed with a challenging primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) shortly after a valve-in-valve TAVI intervention. This case highlights 2 important issues: PCI may be an option for the management of coronary heart disease in patients after TAVI even in the setting of demanding features associated with coronary osteal engagement, and secondly, TAVI may serve as a potential risk factor for future coronary ischemic syndromes, largely due to its potential adverse effects on coronary flow dynamics, etc...

performing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) following transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) will become more frequent with the increasing use of TAVI in lower surgical risk populations. The ideal management strategy for coronary artery disease (CAD) in the setting of TAVI is not well defined and CAD is often left untreated prior to TAVI. Engaging the coronary ostia through the TAVI side cells can be challenging; techniques for rapid coronary cannulation, especially in the acute setting, need to be developed...

BACKGROUND: Despite the health benefits of increasing physical activity in the secondary prevention of acute coronary syndrome (ACS), up to 60% of ACS patients are insufficiently active. Evidence supporting the effect of Web-based interventions on increasing physical activity outcomes in ACS patients is growing. However, randomized controlled trials (RCTs) using Web-based technologies that measured objective physical activity outcomes are sparse. OBJECTIVE: Our aim is to evaluate in insufficiently active ACS patients, the effect of a fully automated, Web-based tailored nursing intervention (TAVIE en m@rche) on increasing steps per day...

PURPOSE: This study explored patients' decision-making about whether or not to enroll in cardiac rehabilitation (CR), an underutilized program that is associated with significantly improved health outcomes. METHOD: Face-to-face interviews were conducted with acute coronary syndrome patients (n = 14) after referral to a local CR center, but prior to program enrollment. Thematic analysis was used to derive themes from interview transcripts. RESULTS: Three themes emerged including anticipated benefit, perceived ability, and contextual influences...

OBJECTIVES: Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) can become technically challenging after implantation of the self-expanding Medtronic CoreValve (MCV) device, which completely covers the aortic root. The aim of this study was to report on the incidence, feasibility and outcome of PCI after TAVI with the MCV device. METHODS: Between 2007 and 2014, all patients subjected to PCI after MCV implantation in a single-center institutional TAVI database were retrospectively identified...

BACKGROUND: The optimal management of cardiogenic shock (CS) occurring in the presence of acute coronary syndromes, severe aortic stenosis, and poor left ventricular function has not been established. Recently, the availability of new assistance devices and techniques has provided novel management opportunities. In particular, when compared with surgical approaches, percutaneous procedures have the advantage of allowing "staged" interventions, in which different steps are planned according to the patient's evolving clinical conditions...

Antiplatelet drugs are the cornerstone of therapy in many cardiovascular conditions. With the current success and increased use of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), the use of antiplatelet therapy is considered part of the medical therapy for these patients. Clinicians caring for these patients need to have a thorough understanding of the pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamic, and clinical efficacy and safety of commonly used antiplatelet therapy. While aspirin therapy is widely used, dual antiplatelet therapy with clopidogrel has become part of standard of care...

OBJECTIVE: There is limited evidence to support decision making on antiplatelet therapy following transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). Our aim was to assess the efficacy and safety of aspirin-only (ASA) versus dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) following TAVI. METHODS: We performed a systematic review and pooled analysis of individual patient data from 672 participants comparing single versus DAPT following TAVI. Primary endpoint was defined as the composite of net adverse clinical and cerebral events (NACE) at 1 month, including all-cause mortality, acute coronary syndrome (ACS), stroke, life-threatening and major bleeding...

The aim of this study was to analyze periprocedural and mid-term effect of clopidogrel on platelet function using the VerifyNow P2Y12 point-of-care assay in patients undergoing TAVI. Platelet reactivity was measured at the beginning of the procedure after 300 mg clopidogrel bolus administration and during the follow-up (at 1 month after the procedure) in 52 patients undergoing TAVI using the Medtronic CoreValve prosthesis (Medtronic CoreValve). A cutoff value of 240 PRU was used to identify nonresponders to clopidogrel treatment with high residual platelet reactivity (HRPR)...

We report a case of an 81-years-old male, recently implanted with a Core Valve (CV) prosthesis and admitted to the ER for acute coronary syndrome. Coronary angiography revealed the patency of the coronary artery by-pass grafts but was impossible to cannulate the left main "imprisoned" by the CV prosthesis struts. Aortography showed an excessive gap between the CV struts and the coronary ostium. To cross the CV struts, we developed a "proboscis" catheter by cutting away the proximal end of the 7F JL 4 catheter and putting inside the 5F Heartrail catheter...
