Transcatheter valve-in-valve implantation (ViV-TAVI) has evolved as an alternative to redo surgical valve replacement (redo-SAVR) for high-risk patients with aortic bioprosthetic valve (BPV) dysfunction. The differences in procedural success and outcomes in a large number of patients who underwent ViV-TAVI compared with redo-SAVR for aortic BPV dysfunction are not known. We conducted a meta-analysis of the previously reported studies to determine outcomes after ViV-TAVI and redo-SAVR. PubMed, MEDLINE, and Google Scholar databases were searched for studies that reported comparative outcomes of patients who underwent either ViV-TAVI or redo-SAVR...

Background: Anderson-Fabry disease is an X-linked inherited disease, which manifests in a different manner depending on gender and genotype. Making a working diagnosis of Anderson-Fabry disease is difficult because of several reasons: (a) that it is a multiorgan disease with wide variety of phenotypes, (b) different timelines of presentation, (c) gender differences, and (d) possible coexistence with other comorbidities. Late-onset/cardiac type of presentation with minimal involvement of other organs can additionally make diagnosis difficult...

BACKGROUND: Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a less invasive alternative approach to surgery. Individual randomized clinical trials evaluating the safety and efficacy of TAVR were mostly underpowered for conducting separate analyses for women and men. We pooled data from premarket TAVR clinical trials comparing short (30 days)- and long-term (∼2 years) outcomes by sex. METHODS: Patient-level data from the TAVR arms of six clinical trials were pooled (2515 patients)...

INTRODUCTION: Bioprosthesis are increasingly used for aortic valve replacement (AVR), as a result of increasing elderly patients, as well as, continuous improvements in durability and hemodynamic performance of pericardial prosthesis. The Trifecta aortic prosthesis is a latest-generation trileaflet stented pericardial valve designed for supra-annular placement in the aortic position. This study establishes the safety and early clinical and hemodynamic performance of the Trifecta valve...

INTRODUCTION: Isolated aortic valve replacement (AVR) in elderly patients is associated with increased operative risk, due to higher prevalence of associated risk factors and other comorbidities, making outcome prediction essential. In patients with symptomatic severe aortic disease, advanced age is often a reason for a transcatheter rather than surgical aortic valve replacement. In the era of TAVI, there has been renewed interest in the outcomes of conventional AVR for high and intermediate risk patients...

INTRODUCTION: Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is the single most common cardiac congenital mal-formation with a prevalence of 1-2%. It is frequently associated with aortic disease including annular ectasia. Increasing evidence suggests that valve-sparing root re-implantation surgery combined with primary aortic valve repair can be performed with good midterm results in patients with BAV. METHODS: Our objective is to compare the short and long term results of David procedure in BAV patients with aortic root ectasia...

INTRODUCTION: Aortic valve replacement (AVR) is the gold standard for the treatment of severe or symptomatic aortic valve stenosis. Less invasive procedures have been developed as an alternative to the conventional technique of full sternotomy approach with stented prosthesis. The Perceval® aortic valve (LivaNova, Milan, Italy) is a sutureless bioprosthesis, of which several reports have shown promising results in terms of mortality, morbidity and hemodynamic performance, especially with a less invasive approach...

Twiddler's syndrome is an uncommon hardware complication involving the lead and pulse generators in cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators, deep brain stimulators, and vagal nerve stimulators. However, until very recently, it had not been reported in spinal cord stimulation (SCS). Considering the incidence of hardware complications of spinal cord stimulation, there may be an underreporting of Twiddler's syndrome due to lack of awareness. Two cases of Twiddler's syndrome as a hardware complication of SCS were identified between 2005 and 2015...

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is indicated in severe symptomatic aortic stenosis, when there is intermediate-high surgical risk, or a condition considered inoperable, as in the case of "porcelain aorta" that could turn clamping or cannulation of the ascending aorta hazardous in open-heart surgery. Among the complications of this less invasive procedure, intraventricular conduction disorders subsequent to the procedure stand out. TAVI causes worsening of intraventricular dromotropic disorders in more than 75% of the cases, with the presence of preexisting right bundle branch block and first-degree atrioventricular block, deep prosthesis implant, male gender, size of the aortic annulus smaller than the prosthesis, and porcelain aorta being predictive of requirement for permanent pacemaker implant...

OBJECTIVES: Atrial fibrillation (AF) reduces survival and quality of life (QoL). It can be treated at the time of major cardiac surgery using ablation procedures ranging from simple pulmonary vein isolation to a full maze procedure. The aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of adjunct AF surgery as currently performed on sinus rhythm (SR) restoration, survival, QoL and cost-effectiveness. METHODS: In a multicentre, Phase III, pragmatic, double-blinded, parallel-armed randomized controlled trial, 352 cardiac surgery patients with >3 months of documented AF were randomized to surgery with or without adjunct maze or similar AF ablation between 2009 and 2014...

BACKGROUND: A significant proportion of patients requiring aortic valve replacement (AVR) have undergone prior coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Reoperative heart surgery is associated with increased risk. Data on relative utilization and comparative outcomes of transcatheter (TAVR) versus surgical AVR (SAVR) in patients with prior CABG are limited. METHODS AND RESULTS: We queried the 2012 to 2014 National Inpatient Sample databases to identify isolated AVR hospitalizations in adults with prior CABG...

The tricuspid valve has historically received less attention than any other cardiac valve with regard to pathophysiology and surgical management. The tricuspid valve is part of a complex functional apparatus that includes the right atrium, right ventricle, and pulmonary circulation. Functional tricuspid regurgitation is the most common tricuspid valve disease and it occurs secondary to dilatation of tricuspid annulus and/or tethering of valve leaflets from right ventricular dilatation and dysfunction. However, recent expansion in the use of right-sided transvenous devices such as pacemakers and implantable defibrillators has been met with a parallel increase in the risk of organic tricuspid disease...
