Infective endocarditis is a rare disease associated with high morbidity and mortality. As a result, early diagnosis and prompt antibiotic treatment with or without surgical intervention is crucial in the management of such condition.We report a case of missed infective endocarditis of the aortic valve. The patient underwent mechanical aortic valve replacement, with the native valve being sent for histopathological examination. On re-admission 16 months later, he presented with syncope, shortness of breathing and complete heart block...

Heart failure has a high prevalence in the general population. Morbidity and mortality of heart failure patients remain high, despite improvements in drug therapy, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators and cardiac resynchronisation therapy. New transcatheter implantable devices have been developed to improve the treatment of heart failure. There has been a rapid development of minimally invasive or transcatheter devices used in the treatment of heart failure associated with aortic and mitral valve disease and these devices are being incorporated into routine clinical practice at a fast rate...

We aimed to evaluate the success rates of balloon valvuloplasty post-dilation (BVPD) and a second-valve deployment in reducing residual aortic regurgitation (AR) after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) and its impact on outcome. Residual AR immediately post-TAVI in patients with aortic stenosis is a common condition that adversely affects outcome. Patients who underwent TAVI who had more-than-mild residual AR were managed either with medical therapy, re-intervention with BVPD, or a second valve...

Aortic regurgitation (AR) is a life-threatening complication of Takayasu arteritis (TA). Takayasu arteritis is a large-vessel vasculitis with a predominance in young adolescent and adult females. Inflammation involves the aorta and its major branches resulting in arterial dilatation, stenosis, aneurysm, occlusion, and thrombosis formation. Pediatric TA cases have been reported to also cause severe complications such as coronary aneurysms, retinopathy, and hypertension due to renovascular stenosis. In this report, we present a rare occurrence of infantile TA with severe AR requiring surgical intervention after failing medical therapy...

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
Maneesh Sud, Derrick Y Tam, Harindra C Wijeysundera
A subset of patients who require correction of a stenotic or incompetent valve are deemed to be at excessive surgical risk, which precludes surgical repair or replacement. Transcatheter valve interventions are viable alternatives in these patients. However, these technologies are costly, and in the setting of a constrained Canadian health care budget, economic value is an important consideration to allow for fair allocation of scarce resources. Accordingly, we review the economic literature on transcatheter valve interventions, targeting a general audience...

Haiming Li, Chengxiong Gu
The treatment of aortic regurgitation (AR) in patients undergoing off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is a difficult problem. Aortic valve repair has become a promising therapy for AR. Various annuloplasty approaches have been used and have gained satisfactory results. Thus we adopted off-pump semicircular annuloplasty to treat concurrent moderate AR in 12 high-risk patients. Early follow-up results showed that this way is simple, safe, and effective.

A 69 year old male, an ex-smoker, was admitted with ongoing chest pain of 11 hours duration. Past medical history included treated hypertension and gastro-oesophageal reflux disease. He delayed seeking medical attention as he assumed the pain to be due to indigestion and kept taking antacids without much symptomatic relief. Clinical examination on arrival was unremarkable. Admission 12 lead electrocardiogram (ECG) was diagnostic of a recent anterolateral myocardial infarction (MI) (Figure 1a). Bedside trans-thoracic echocardiogram (TTE) confirmed an established anterolateral MI (Video 1, Figure 1b)...

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is recommended for patients who are inoperable or at high risk for surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR). Corticosteroid therapy is considered to be a risk factor for SAVR, but there is a paucity of information about TAVI in patients taking corticosteroids. The aim of this study is to elucidate the outcome of TAVI in patients on chronic corticosteroid therapy, compared with SAVR. We retrospectively analyzed patients on corticosteroid therapy who underwent TAVI (n = 21) or SAVR (n = 30) for severe aortic stenosis in Sakakibara Heart Institute...

BACKGROUND: The predominant forms of adult large vessel vasculitis (LVV) are giant cell arteritis (GCA) and Takayasu arteritis (TA). Cardiac involvement in LVV is a cause of morbidity and mortality, particularly in TA. Cardiac failure is most commonly secondary to uncontrolled arterial hypertension or myocardial ischaemia. Pulmonary hypertension and aortic valve incompetence following ascending aortic dilatation represent other serious cardiovascular complications. However, cardiac failure as a consequence of myocarditis is rarely reported, principally in single case reports or in autopsy studies...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate left univentricular (LUV) pacing for cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) using a rate-adaptive atrioventricular delay (RAAVD) algorithm to track physiological atrioventricular delay (AVD). METHODS: A total of 72 patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) were randomized to RAAVD LUV pacing versus standard biventricular (BiV) pacing in a 1: 1 ratio. Echocardiography was used to optimize AVD for both groups. The effects of sequential BiV pacing and LUV pacing with optimized A-V (right atrio-LV) delay using an RAAVD algorithm were compared...

INTRODUCTION: This retrospective study examined the role of aortic valve (AV) disease in patients who underwent orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) to determine the incidence of postoperative cardiac morbidity and mortality when compared with a matched control group without AV disease. METHODS: Patients were included in the AV group if diagnosed with aortic stenosis (AS) or aortic regurgitation or had received AV replacement prior to OLT. The AV group (n = 53) was matched to a control group (n = 212) with the following preoperative variables: type of organ transplanted, age, gender, race, body mass index, MELD, redo-transplantation, preoperative renal replacement therapy, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, viral hepatitis, diabetes, and coronary artery disease...

Ebstein's anomaly is defined as the significant apical displacement of the tricuspid valve causing tricuspid regurgitation. Although a variety of concomitant lesions have been previously described, we herein introduce an unusual presentation. Our patient was an 86-year-old man with a primary presentation of typical chest pain in the setting of recently diagnosed coronary artery disease with concomitant Ebstein's anomaly. We found mild-to-moderate tricuspid regurgitation, bicuspid aortic valve, persistent left superior vena cava, and patent foramen ovale...

BACKGROUND: There are limited clinical records in the literature regarding aortic valve replacement in left ventricular assist device (L-VAD) patients. Previously we had two cases of severe aortic valve regurgitation in patients with L-VAD support treated with Corvalve prosthesis insertion and Amplatzer closure procedure. Both patients died a few days after the procedure from complications not related to the procedure itself. PATIENT HISTORY: The patient was a male with previous coronary artery bypass graft surgery in 2001 that was complicated with postischemic dilated cardiomyopathy with severe heart failure (ejection fraction [EF], 20%)...
