The indications for catheter-based structural and electrophysiological procedures have recently expanded to more complex scenarios, in which an accurate definition of the variable individual cardiac anatomy is key to obtain optimal results. Intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) is a unique imaging modality able to provide high-resolution real-time visualization of cardiac structures, continuous monitoring of catheter location within the heart, and early recognition of procedural complications, such as pericardial effusion or thrombus formation...

While the long-term outcome of surgical aortic valvotomy (SAV) appears to be better than that of balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV) as the primary procedure of aortic valve stenosis, the surgical strategies and techniques of treating aortic valve disease in children in other situations remain controversial. Valve repair should be first considered while replacement is still unavoidable in some cases, and new repair techniques developed by innovative surgeons are gradually becoming adopted. Some complex repair procedures such as cusp extension, leaflet replacement/reconstruction have provided satisfactory outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Echocardiographic predictors of redo-percutaneous balloon mitral valvuloplasty (redo-PBMV) have not been well studied, and indications are based mainly on Wilkins score. The study aim was to evaluate the immediate results of redo-PMBV and to introduce a simplified redo-score to predict the success of redo-PBMV. METHODS: Two cohorts of symptomatic patients (derivation group, n = 218; validation group, n = 100) who had undergone redo-PBMV at a mean of 8...

Generally, anticoagulation therapy is not essential for patients who maintain sinus rhythm after mitral valvuloplasty. A 66-year-old woman who had undergone mitral valvuloplasty and maze procedure for treatment of mitral valve regurgitation and atrial fibrillation 4 years ago was diagnosed as having left atrial thrombosis despite maintenance of sinus rhythm on electrocardiography. Echocardiography showed narrow mitral valvular area(1.5 cm2), loss of A wave and a huge left atrium. Repeat surgery was performed to replace the mitral valve and to remove the thrombus...

Severe aortic stenosis (AS) is considered a contraindication to the use of mechanical circulatory support (MCS) devices, including the Impella heart pump (Abiomed, Aachen, Germany). We describe a case in which a 72-year-old female with severe AS and peripheral vascular disease (PVD) presented with retractable ischemia in the setting of a non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). Using a coordinated multidisciplinary approach, our case is the first to combine iliac angioplasty, balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV), and the insertion of an Impella CP device in the setting of severe AS to facilitate successful coronary artery revascularization in a non-surgical patient...

Primary cardiac lymphoma (PCL) is very rare, with the variable clinical manifestations potentially leading to a delayed diagnosis. PCL is usually detected incidentally through image studies, whereas the diagnosis can be confirmed via analysis of pericardial effusion, endomyocardial biopsy tissue, or surgical specimens. Although no standard therapy has been established for PCL, without treatment, the prognosis is grave, with the estimated overall survival being approximately 1 year. We report a difficult diagnosis and complicated case of fulminant PCL, which is the first comprehensively reported case of PCL with secondary hemophagocytosis...

Outcome data for neonates with critical pulmonary stenosis (PS) is limited. We aimed to review the outcomes after balloon pulmonary valvuloplasty (BPV) for neonates with critical PS at our institution. All neonates with critical PS who underwent BPV from 1990 to 2017 were included. A total of 44 neonates underwent BPV for critical PS. Nonright ventricular dependent coronary artery fistulas was seen in 6/44 (13.6%) patients. Tricuspid valve z-scores were -1.9 (interquartile range [IQR] -3.04, -0.48) in those with coronary artery fistulas as compared with -0...

BACKGROUND: We aimed to investigate the characteristics and echocardiographic changes in patients with severe mitral stenosis (MS) who maintained sinus rhythm (SR) for at least 10 years after successful percutaneous mitral balloon valvuloplasty (PMV). METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 107 patients who had successful PMV and follow-up echocardiography for at least 10 years without mitral valve surgery. Preprocedural, immediate postprocedural (PMV), and long-term follow-up echocardiography (at least 10 years after PMV) data were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: The approach to intervention for congenital aortic valve stenosis (AS) differs depending upon centre bias toward a primary catheter or surgical approach. We therefore investigated associations with freedom from re-intervention (FFI) in the cohort of children who underwent primary balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV) for congenital AS in our centre. METHODS: All patients who underwent BAV as a primary procedure in the period between 2001 and 2015 in a single service were included...

Valve-in-valve (VIV) transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has been established as a safe and effective means of treating failed surgical bioprosthetic valves (BPVs) in patients at high risk for complications related to reoperation. Patients who undergo VIV TAVR are at risk of patient-prosthesis mismatch, as the transcatheter heart valve (THV) is implanted within the ring of the existing BPV, limiting full expansion and reducing the maximum achievable effective orifice area of the THV. Importantly, patient-prosthesis mismatch and high residual transvalvular gradients are associated with reduced survival following VIV TAVR...

BACKGROUNDIn patients with mitral stenosis (MS) percutaneous mitral balloon valvuloplasty (PMBV) aims to improve both the symptoms and prognosis. Although there is some evidence of potential long-term benefits from PMBV in asymptomatic patients with mitral valve area (MVA) 1.0-1.5cm2, nonetheless there is lack of follow-up data of symptomatic MS-patients with MVA >1.5cm2, who underwent PMBV.METHODSWe retrospectively determined peri-procedural results of symptomatic patients who underwent PMBV for MS with MVA >1...

Predilatation has been historically considered a mandatory step before transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) since it facilitates valve crossing and prosthesis delivery, ensures optimal valve expansion and improves hemodynamic stability during valve deployment. However, as a result of procedural evolution over time, direct TAVI (without pre-implantation balloon aortic valvuloplasty) has emerged as an interesting option to simplify the procedure and to avoid potential valvuloplasty-related complications...

: The introduction of percutaneous treatment of severe aortic stenosis with transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) remains one of the greatest achievements of interventional cardiology. In fact, TAVI emerged as a better option than either medical therapy or balloon aortic valvuloplasty for patients who cannot undergo surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) or are at high surgical risk. Recently, increased operator experience and improved device systems have led to a worldwide trend toward the extension of TAVI to low-risk or intermediate-risk patients...
