BACKGROUND: Plasma Galectin-3 is a marker of myocardial inflammation and fibrosis, was associated with left ventricular (LV) reverse remodeling after conventional surgical mitral valve repair (MVR) and predicted clinical events in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). We aimed to evaluate the association between pre-interventional Galectin-3 levels and (1) reverse LV remodeling and (2) major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in patients undergoing percutaneous MVR...

Secondary mitral regurgitation (MR) results from left ventricular dilatation and dysfunction. Quantification of secondary MR is challenging because of the underlying myocardial disease. Clinical and echocardiographic evaluation requires a multi-parametric approach. Severe secondary MR occurs in up to one-fourth of patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction, which is associated with a mortality rate of 40% to 50% in 3 years. Percutaneous edge-to-edge mitral valve repair (MitraClip) has emerged as an alternative to surgical valve repair to improve symptoms, functional capacity, heart failure hospitalizations, and cardiac haemodynamics...

BACKGROUND: Specific matrix metalloproteinases (MMP-2, MMP-9) and inflammatory biomarkers (hsCRP, IL-6) were found to be consistently up-regulated in severe mitral valve regurgitation (MR) and are associated with mortality in heart failure patients. The aim of the present study was to examine the prognostic value of biomarkers of cardiac inflammation and remodeling processes in predicting mortality in patients with MR undergoing percutaneous mitral valve repair (PMVR). HYPOTHESIS: We hypothesize that increased cardiac inflammation and extracellular matrix turnover is predictive for mortality in patients with severe mitral regurgitation undergoing MitraClip...

BACKGROUND: Tissue engineering has advanced the technique of decellularization of the heart valve. The valve is reseeded with the patient's own cells after implantation with suppression of immunologic reactions. The same advantage has been reported for fresh decellularized heart valves, and more than 10 years of excellent outcomes have been achieved. We began performing such heart valve implantations in 2013 as part of a clinical study at Osaka University. We report our evaluation of the safety and efficacy of heart valve implantation...

Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is a common valvular lesion which may affect morbidity and mortality. It can be related to an intrinsic abnormality of the tricuspid valve leaflets (organic) or secondary to annular dilatation (functional). Often organic and functional TR coexist in the same patient. A long standing TR is associated with ascites, congestive hepatopathy, peripheral edema, renal failure, and abdominal fullness which significantly affect the outcome. In particular, the perioperative course may be complicated due to both the presence of comorbidities and the development of a severe postoperative right ventricle (RV) dysfunction...

The use of textile in the medical field is not new; this has given rise to a new branch known as medical textiles. These are being used to repair or replace various other musculoskeletal tissues. The most common uses of biomaterials are to create aseptic conditions for protection, general health care, and hygiene including bedding and clothing, surgical gowns, face masks, head and shoe covers, sterilization wraps, suture anchors, fiber cast and braces/orthotics. These are also used as materials for preparation of wipes, swabs, wound dressings, bandages, gauzes, plasters, pressure garments, orthopedic belts and for new applications, such as heart valves, vascular grafts, artificial veins, artificial ligaments, artificial joints, artificial skin, and artificial cartilage...

BACKGROUND: Patients with atrioventricular septal defect (AVSD) may require pulmonary artery banding (PAB), either as a part of a staged uni-ventricular palliation or to allow delayed bi-ventricular repair in those presenting with early heart failure. The long-term outcomes of PAB in children with AVSD have not been previously reported. METHODS: All children with AVSD who underwent PAB at a single institution were included in the study. Data were obtained from medical records and correspondence with general practitioners and cardiologists...

Adaptation and evolution of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) technologies has led to approval of TAVR for consideration in patients at intermediate risk for surgical aortic valve intervention. As TAVR becomes more mainstream, attention is shifting toward percutaneous mitral valve (MV) repair and transcatheter MV replacement (TMVR) techniques. Transcatheter heart valves (both purpose-built and off-label-use TAVR valves) are being implanted during TMVR procedures to treat clinically significant MV disease (native disease, degenerated bioprosthetic valves, and dysfunctional surgical MV annuloplasty repairs) when the risk of open heart MV surgery is prohibitive...

Mitral regurgitation (MR) is a valvular heart disease associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Transcatheter mitral valve intervention (TMVI) repairs or replaces the mitral valve through small arterial and venous entry sites and so avoids risks associated with open heart surgery. Transcatheter devices targeting components of the mitral apparatus are being developed to repair or replace it. Numerous challenges remain including developing more adaptable devices and correction of multiple components of the mitral annulus to attain durable results...

Mitral valve regurgitation (MR) is the most common valvular heart disease. Primary MR is a disease of the mitral valve apparatus, whereas secondary MR is a disease of the left ventricle. Diagnosing and managing MR is often challenging and requires a structured approach, integrating findings on history, physical examination, and imaging. Decisions regarding treatment depend on knowledge of the etiology, natural history, and outcome of interventions for these patients with mitral valve disease. The optimal timing of intervention requires a comprehensive 2-dimensional and Doppler echocardiogram in each patient to determine the cause of the mitral valve disease, the severity of the regurgitation, and the effect of the volume overload on the left ventricle, as well as determining if a durable valve repair can be performed...

Valvular heart disease is a major public health issue. The prevalence of valvular heart disease is expected to increase due to an aging population. Valve dysfunction manifests as valve stenosis, regurgitation, or both, due to various etiologies. Valve repair and replacement are the main treatment options for severe valve dysfunction. Valve replacement is achieved by using either a mechanical or a bioprosthetic valve. Mechanical valves are more durable but require lifelong anticoagulation with associated complications...

Hyperbilirubinemia is a known risk factor in patients undergoing open heart operations. Infective endocarditis often leads to valvular injury, such as rupture of chordae tendineae or leaflet perforation, which can cause acute heart failure in association with pulmonary hypertension and liver dysfunction. Here we present a patient with massive liver congestion, reflected by extreme hyperbilirubinemia, secondary to acute heart failure following mitral valve endocarditis that was successfully treated by emergency mitral and tricuspid valve repair...

Valvular heart disease is an increasing population health problem and, especially in the elderly, a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. The current treatment options, such as mechanical and bioprosthetic heart valve replacements, have significant restrictions and limitations. Considering the increased life expectancy of our aging population, there is an urgent need for novel heart valve concepts that remain functional throughout life to prevent the need for reoperation. Heart valve tissue engineering aims to overcome these constraints by creating regenerative, self-repairing valve substitutes with life-long durability...
