Most emboli are of cardiac origin and are associated with HEART DISEASES. Other non-cardiac sources of emboli are usually associated with VASCULAR DISEASES.Blood Circulation: The movement of the BLOOD as it is pumped through the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM.Subclavian Artery: Artery arising from the brachiocephalic trunk on the right side and from the arch of the aorta on the left side. It distributes to the neck, thoracic wall, spinal cord, brain, meninges, and upper limb.Tomography, Emission-Computed, Single-Photon: A method of computed tomography that uses radionuclides which emit a single photon of a given energy. The camera is rotated 180 or 360 degrees around the patient to capture images at multiple positions along the arc. The computer is then used to reconstruct the transaxial, sagittal, and coronal images from the 3-dimensional distribution of radionuclides in the organ. The advantages of SPECT are that it can be used to observe biochemical and physiological processes as well as size and volume of the organ. The disadvantage is that, unlike positron-emission tomography where the positron-electron annihilation results in the emission of 2 photons at 180 degrees from each other, SPECT requires physical collimation to line up the photons, which results in the loss of many available photons and hence degrades the image.Cardiopulmonary Bypass: Diversion of the flow of blood from the entrance of the right atrium directly to the aorta (or femoral artery) via an oxygenator thus bypassing both the heart and lungs.Heart Auscultation: Act of listening for sounds within the heart.Cohort Studies: Studies in which subsets of a defined population are identified. These groups may or may not be exposed to factors hypothesized to influence the probability of the occurrence of a particular disease or other outcome. Cohorts are defined populations which, as a whole, are followed in an attempt to determine distinguishing subgroup characteristics.Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Cine: A type of imaging technique used primarily in the field of cardiology. By coordinating the fast gradient-echo MRI sequence with retrospective ECG-gating, numerous short time frames evenly spaced in the cardiac cycle are produced. These images are laced together in a cinematic display so that wall motion of the ventricles, valve motion, and blood flow patterns in the heart and great vessels can be visualized.Cardiac Output, Low: A state of subnormal or depressed cardiac output at rest or during stress. It is a characteristic of CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES, including congenital, valvular, rheumatic, hypertensive, coronary, and cardiomyopathic. The serious form of low cardiac output is characterized by marked reduction in STROKE VOLUME, and systemic vasoconstriction resulting in cold, pale, and sometimes cyanotic extremities.Reproducibility of Results: The statistical reproducibility of measurements (often in a clinical context), including the testing of instrumentation or techniques to obtain reproducible results. The concept includes reproducibility of physiological measurements, which may be used to develop rules to assess probability or prognosis, or response to a stimulus; reproducibility of occurrence of a condition; and reproducibility of experimental results.Ultrasonography, Interventional: The use of ultrasound to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures such as needle ASPIRATION BIOPSY; DRAINAGE; etc. Its widest application is intravascular ultrasound imaging but it is useful also in urology and intra-abdominal conditions.Chi-Square Distribution: A distribution in which a variable is distributed like the sum of the squares of any given independent random variable, each of which has a normal distribution with mean of zero and variance of one. The chi-square test is a statistical test based on comparison of a test statistic to a chi-square distribution. The oldest of these tests are used to detect whether two or more population distributions differ from one another.Myoblasts, Cardiac: Precursor cells destined to differentiate into cardiac myocytes (MYOCYTES, CARDIAC).Pericardiectomy: Surgical excision (total or partial) of a portion of the pericardium. Pericardiotomy refers to incision of the pericardium.Carcinoid Heart Disease: Cardiac manifestation of gastrointestinal CARCINOID TUMOR that metastasizes to the liver. Substances secreted by the tumor cells, including SEROTONIN, promote fibrous plaque formation in ENDOCARDIUM and its underlying layers. These deposits cause distortion of the TRICUSPID VALVE and the PULMONARY VALVE eventually leading to STENOSIS and valve regurgitation.Aorta: The main trunk of the systemic arteries.Phonocardiography: Graphic registration of the heart sounds picked up as vibrations and transformed by a piezoelectric crystal microphone into a varying electrical output according to the stresses imposed by the sound waves. The electrical output is amplified by a stethograph amplifier and recorded by a device incorporated into the electrocardiograph or by a multichannel recording machine.Thrombolytic Therapy: Use of infusions of FIBRINOLYTIC AGENTS to destroy or dissolve thrombi in blood vessels or bypass grafts.

What is the difference between Petechiae Purpura and Ecchymosis? Petechiae are the smallest and ecchymoses are largest, Purpura is smaller than ecchymoses but..
Ecchymosis is an area of blood extravasation larger than 5 mm in size and is usually secondary to small or medium sized blood vessel trauma.3 In patients with either congenital or acquired coagulation defects, even trivial trauma may result in ecchymosis. Petechial hemorrhages are smaller (, 2 mm) and typically due to damage to dermal capillaries. Causes of petechial hemorrhages include increased hydrostatic pressure in the capillary system (e.g., post-tussive or post-strangulation); infections (e.g., Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever); small vessel vasculitis (e.g., Henoch Schönlein Purpura); and poor capillary structural integrity (e.g., scurvy or amyloidosis). Confluent periorbital petechial hemorrhages may morphologically resemble ecchymosis as can be seen in amyloidosis.4 Our patient had no clinical features, or laboratory results suggestive of congenital or acquired coagulation defects; increased hydrostatic pressure; infection; vasculitis; or amyloidosis.. Complications associated with nasal ...

Many people get confused between a bruise and an ecchymosis. People often use both the terms interchangeably. Although bruise and ecchymosis are changes in skin color due to leakage of blood, they both are different. This difference is based on the mechanism of leakage of the blood.. A bruise occurs when there is any injury or trauma to the skin or any body part like blunt trauma. Due to the compressive forces exerted on the skin by the traumatic incident, the blood leaks from the blood vessels or capillaries and leads to the formation of a bruise. For example, if someone punches you in your face or eye, you develop a bruise.. But in ecchymosis, the bleeding from the blood vessels or capillaries occurs only due to an underlying disease or medical condition. If you happen to develop any abnormal discoloration on your skin without any trauma or injury, you need to think of ecchymosis and the causes of ecchymosis.. ...

Diagnostic cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography are considered the gold standard in the assessment of the anatomy and physiology of the heart and its associated vasculature. In 1929, Forssmann demonstrated the feasibility of cardiac catheterization in humans when he passed a urological catheter from a vein in his arm to his right atrium and documented the catheters position in the heart by x-ray. In the 1940s, Cournand and Richards applied this technique to patients with cardiovascular disease to evaluate cardiac function. These three physicians were awarded the Nobel Prize in 1956. In 1958, Sones inadvertently performed the first selective coronary angiography when a catheter in the left ventricle slipped back across the aortic valve, engaged the right coronary artery, and power-injected 40 mL of contrast down the vessel. The resulting angiogram provided superb anatomic detail of the artery, and ...
The Koebner phenomenon or Köbner phenomenon (UK: /ˈkɜːrbnər/, US: /ˈkɛb-/),[1] also called the Koebner response or the isomorphic response, attributed to Heinrich Köbner, is the appearance of skin lesions on lines of trauma.[2] The Koebner phenomenon may result from either a linear exposure or irritation. Conditions demonstrating linear lesions after a linear exposure to a causative agent include: molluscum contagiosum, warts and toxicodendron dermatitis (a dermatitis caused by a genus of plants including poison ivy). Warts and molluscum contagiosum lesions can be spread in linear patterns by self-scratching ("auto-inoculation"). Toxicodendron dermatitis lesions are often linear from brushing up against the plant. Causes of the Koebner phenomenon that are secondary to scratching rather than an infective or chemical cause include vitiligo, psoriasis, lichen planus, lichen nitidus, pityriasis rubra pilaris, and keratosis follicularis (Darier disease).[citation needed] ...

Introduction: Modern surgical management of chronic venous insufficiency is possible since the development of catheter-based minimally invasive techniques, including radio-frequency ablation (RFA) and the application of colour Doppler sonography. RFA technology requires the use of tumescent anaesthesia, which prolongs the operating time. Instilling tumescent anaesthesia percutaneously below the saphenous fascia is the steepest part of the learning curve. In our study, we compared operative and postoperative results of tumescentless RFA and RFA with tumescent anaesthesia, to investigate the necessity of tumescent anaesthesia. Methods: A total of 344 patients with Doppler-confirmed great saphenous vein insufficiency underwent RFA between January and December 2012. Patients were divided into two groups according to anaesthetic management. Group 1 consisted of 172 patients: tumescent anaesthesia was given before the ablation procedure, and group 2 contained 172 patients: a local hypothermia and ...

To avoid venous puncture, a new concept for standby cardiac pacing during percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) and diagnostic cardiac catheterization was developed. It uses an arterial guidewire as a unipolar pacing electrode with the second electrode attached to the skin. The system was tested in 25 coronary arteries of 22 patients undergoing PTCA and in the left ventricles of 10 patients undergoing diagnostic cardiac catheterization. Coronary pacing via the guidewire used for directing the balloon catheter was possible in all patients and in 24 of the 25 coronary arteries attempted. Maximum duration of pacing was 8 min. Threshold currents ranged from 1 to 15 mA (mean 5.7). Left ventricular pacing via the same wires or standard wires used for introduction of diagnostic or guiding catheters was possible in all patients and was maintained for up to 10 min. Threshold currents ranged from 1 to 7 mA (mean 3.9). ...
The risk of major complications during diagnostic cardiac catheterization procedure is usually less than 1%, and the risk and the risk of mortality of 0.05% for diagnostic procedure. For any patient, the complication rate is dependent on multiple factors and is dependent on the demographics of the patient, vascular anatomy, co-morbid conditions, clinical presentation, the procedure being performed, and the experience of the operator. The complications can be minor as discomfort at the site of catheterization to major ones like death.. But there are very serious complications of the procedure that can result in death or serious disability.. From a recently updated review of cath complications. Local Vascular Complications. Hematoma/Retroperitoneal Bleeding. These are among the most common complications seen after cardiac catheterization procedures.

Transradial catheterization is an endovascular procedure or catherization procedure performed to diagnose and treat arterial disease (e.g., coronary artery disease, peripheral artery disease, etc.). Endovascular procedure can be performed achieving access in to bodys arterial system from either femoral artery (in groin), brachial artery (in elbow) or radial artery in the wrist. The transfemoral (through groin) approach to perform cardiac catheterization has typically been more prevalent in invasive cardiology. But, radial access has gained in popularity due to technical advances with catheters and lower complication rates than transfemoral access. In 1948, Radner published one of the first descriptions of transradial central arterial catheterization and attempts at coronary artery imaging using radial artery cut-down. Transradial access to perform diagnostic cardiac catheterization ...
BACKGROUND New generation transcatheter heart valves (THV) may improve clinical outcomes of transcatheter aortic valve implantation. METHODS AND RESULTS In a nationwide, prospective, multicenter cohort study (Swiss Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation Registry, NCT01368250), outcomes of consecutive transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve implantation patients treated with the Sapien 3 THV (S3) versus the Sapien XT THV (XT) were investigated. An overall of 153 consecutive S3 patients were compared with 445 consecutive XT patients. Postprocedural mean transprosthetic gradient (6.5±3.0 versus 7.8±6.3 mm Hg, P=0.17) did not differ between S3 and XT patients, respectively. The rate of more than mild paravalvular regurgitation (1.3% versus 5.3%, P=0.04) and of vascular (5.3% versus 16.9%, P,0.01) complications were significantly lower in S3 patients. A higher rate of new permanent pacemaker implantations was observed in patients receiving the S3 valve (17.0% versus 11.0%, P=0.01). There were no ...

In medical terminology, Battles sign, also mastoid ecchymosis, is an indication of fracture of middle cranial fossa of the skull, and may suggest underlying brain trauma. Battles sign consists of bruising over the mastoid process, as a result of extravasation of blood along the path of the posterior auricular artery.[1] The sign is named after William Henry Battle.[2] Note well that this sign will take at least one day to appear after the initial traumatic basilar skull fracture, similar to Raccoon eyes.[3] Battles sign is usually seen after head injuries resulting in injury to mastoid process leading to bruising.. Battles sign may be confused with a spreading hematoma from a fracture of the mandibular condyle,[4] which is a less serious injury.. ...
OBJECTIVES: The purpose of the present study was to test whether the cumulative knowledge from the field of transapical transcatheter aortic valve implantation, when incorporated into a structured training and then gradually dispersed by internal proctoring, might eliminate the negative effect of the learning curve on the clinical outcomes. METHODS: The present study was a retrospective, single-center, observational cohort study of prospectively collected data from all 500 consecutive high-risk patients undergoing transapical transcatheter aortic valve implantation at our institution from April 2008 to December 2011. Of the 500 patients, 28 were in cardiogenic shock. Differences during the study period in baseline characteristics, procedural and postprocedural variables, and survival were analyzed using different statistical methods, including cumulative sum charts. RESULTS: The overall 30-day mortality was 4.6% (95% confidence interval, 3.1%-6.8%) and was 4.0% (95% confidence interval, ...

Purpose To investigate pain and other complications following inguinal hernioplasty performed by the Lichtenstein technique with mesh fixation by fibrin glue or sutures. Methods Five hundred and twenty patients were enrolled in this 12-month observational multicenter study and received either sutures or fibrin glue (Tissucol/Tisseel) based on the preference of the surgeon. Pain, numbness, discomfort, recurrence, and other complications were assessed postoperatively and at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months. Pain intensity was assessed by a visual analog scale VAS; 0 [no pain] to 10 [worst pain]). Results One hundred and seventy-one patients received sutures and 349 received fibrin glue. During the early postoperative phase, 87.4% of patients in the fibrin glue group and 76.6% of patients in the sutures group were complication-free (P = 0.001). Patients who received fibrin glue were also less likely to experience hematoma/ecchymosis than those in the suture group (both P = 0.001). The mean pain score was ...

Hemotrophic mycoplasmas (HM) are highly specialized red blood cell parasites that cause infectious anemia in a variety of mammals, including humans. To date, no in vitro cultivation systems for HM have been available, resulting in relatively little information about the pathogenesis of HM infection. In pigs, Mycoplasma suis-induced infectious anemia is associated with hemorrhagic diathesis, and coagulation dysfunction. However, intravasal coagulation and subsequent consumption coagulopathy can only partly explain the sequence of events leading to hemorrhagic diathesis manifesting as cyanosis, petechial bleeding, and ecchymosis, and to disseminated coagulation. The involvement of endothelial activation and damage in M. suis-associated pathogenesis was investigated using light and electron microscopy, immunohistochemistry, and cell sorting. M. suis interacted directly with endothelial cells in vitro and in vivo. Endothelial activation, widespread endothelial damage, and adherence of red blood ...
A 17-year-old girl previously in good health presented with a 2-month history of recurrent, high-grade fever; general fatigue; anorexia; a 10-kg weight loss; and multiple, painful, reddish skin lesions on the lower abdomen. Some lesions were ulcerated, with an oily yellowish brown discharge. A systemic review was unremarkable other than bleeding from the nose. Her medical and family histories were unremarkable. On examination, the patient was pale, jaundiced, and febrile (temperature of 39 degrees C). She had enlarged lymph nodes in the axillary and inguinal areas. There was moderate hepatosplenomegaly. Local skin examination revealed multiple erythematous, tender, and firm subcutaneous nodules of variable size (1-2 cm) on the lower abdomen. Some nodules were ulcerated, with oily yellowish brown discharge and overlying ecchymosis (Figures 1 and 2). Mucous membranes were free of lesions. Laboratory investigations showed pancytopenia, an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (,80 mm/h), normal ...

Degenerative aortic stenosis is the most prevalent aortic valve disease in western countries. Ageing processes and increased life expectancy of the population increase the prevalence of this valvular heart disease.w1 Surgical aortic valve replacement is the first therapeutic option for patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis. However, in selected subgroups of patients, the operative risk may outweigh the clinical benefits of surgery. Older age, severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction, and associated comorbidities such as neurological diseases are the main determinants of non-referral for surgery in almost 30% of patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis.w2. Technological advances in the field of percutaneous cardiovascular interventions have favoured the development of less invasive therapeutic strategies. The emerging transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) techniques have been shown to be a feasible alternative to surgical aortic valve ...
Part 2 - conclusion). LAST week, we took our readers in a journey back to year 1628, almost 400 years ago, when blood circulation, as we know it today, was "discovered," understood, and accepted by medical science for the first time. This fundamental information inspired and led to cascading advances, one after the other, in medicine as a whole, and in cardiovascular medicine and surgery in particular. One discovery enabled the invention of more sophisticated diagnostic and therapeutic measures or procedures. The cutting-edge and state-of-the-art medical and surgical procedures available to patients today were made possible and ushered in by those past proven concepts and evidence-based discoveries.. The first right heart angiography in human was done in 1929 by Werner Forssmann on himself. He was derided as crazy but was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1956, which he shared with Andre Cournand and Dickinson Richards, who introduced diagnostic cardiac ...
Percutaneous aortic valve replacement (PAVR), also known as transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) or transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), is the replacement of the aortic valve of the heart through the blood vessels (as opposed to valve replacement by open heart surgery). The replacement valve is delivered via one of several access methods: transfemoral (in the upper leg), transapical (through the wall of the heart), subclavian (beneath the collar bone), direct aortic (through a minimally invasive surgical incision into the aorta), and transcaval (from a temporary hole in the aorta near the belly button through a vein in the upper leg). Severe symptomatic aortic stenosis carries a poor prognosis. Until recently, surgical aortic valve replacement was the standard of care in adults with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis. However, the risks associated with surgical aortic valve replacement are increased in elderly patients and those with concomitant severe systolic heart ...

Methods and Results-Data were obtained using the national inpatient sample between the years 2011 and 2014. We used the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Edition, Clinical Modification procedure codes 350.5 and 350.6 to identify patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement. Primary outcome of interest was in-hospital mortality. A 2-tailed P value ,0.01 was considered to denote statistical significance for all analyses. We identified 42 189 patients who underwent transcatheter aortic valve replacement between the years 2011 and 2014. Of these, 62.1% (n=26 229) had no CKD/ESRD, 33.7% (n=14 252) had CKD, and 4% (n=1708) had ESRD. Patients with CKD or ESRD had greater in-hospital mortality, hospital length of stay, hemorrhage requiring transfusion, and permanent pacemaker implantation (P,0.001). ...
The indications included in this publication cover a variety of cardiovascular signs and symptoms as well as clinical judgments as to the likelihood of cardiovascular findings. Within each main disease category, a standardized approach was used to capture a significant number of clinical scenarios without making the list of indications excessive. The term "indication" is used interchangeably with "clinical scenario" in the document for brevity and does not imply that imaging should necessarily be done. Diagnostic catheterization may include several different procedure components. The indications developed focused primarily on 2 aspects of diagnostic catheterization. Many indications focused on the performance of coronary angiography for the detection of coronary artery disease (CAD), with other procedure components (e.g., hemodynamic measurements, ventriculography) performed at the discretion of the operator. The majority of the remaining ...

A 78-year-old woman with chest discomfort and progressive exertional dyspnea was admitted to our center. Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) suggested severe aortic stenosis (AS) (mean pressure gradient 70 mm Hg; peak jet velocity 5.4 m/s) and moderate aortic regurgitation (AR). Left ventricular ejection fraction was 64%. Bicuspidy of the aortic valve and aneurysmal dilation of the ascending aorta (56 mm in diameter) were noted on TTE. She was declined for surgery on account of high operative risk (logistic EuroSCORE 31.67%) after consultations by the heart team, thus she was evaluated for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). Coronary angiogram showed the absence of significant coronary lesions. Three-dimensional computed tomographic angiography (CTA) confirmed the bicuspidy (Fig. 1A) and measured the diameter of the ascending aorta at 53 mm (Fig. 1B); the annulus was elliptical with a long-axis diameter of 25.6 mm and a short-axis diameter of 19.5 mm. TAVI was conducted in a hybrid ...
Routine predeployment balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV) has historically been considered an essential part of the transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedure, ensuring unimpeded delivery of the prosthetic valve across the stenotic aortic valve, optimal valve expansion, and hemodynamic stability during valve deployment. This was particularly pertinent for first‐generation valves with very large profiles (22‐F and 24‐F Edwards Sapien valve [Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, CA]1 and 24‐F Medtronic CoreValve [Medtronic, Dublin, Ireland]2), for which valve crossing was often challenging. However, its continued role as a routine adjunct given more advanced delivery systems with lower profiles (14‐F to 16‐F for the Edwards S3 and Medtronic Evolut R valves) and improved trackability remains uncertain. Routine predeployment BAV for every TAVR might not be necessary, especially as operators strive to minimize TAVR‐related risks. A tailored approach to predeployment BAV for specific ...
Vascular complications were a factor that tempered the enthusiasm of widespread adoption of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) after the completion of the original PARTNER IB (The Placement of Aortic Transcatheter Valves IB) trial (1). In that trial, the rate of major vascular complications was 16.2%. This was not surprising given the need for a 22- or 24-F delivery sheath via a transfemoral approach only. This rate later decreased in a high risk cohort of patients (2). This was not only as a result of increased operator experience, but also because of the availability of an alternative access for patients with peripheral arterial disease. The transapical approach involved direct left ventricular puncture with placement of a 26-F delivery sheath, which allowed delivery of the valve. As TAVR became available commercially, additional access approaches were developed. The first of these, the transaortic approach, showed lower rates of combined bleeding and vascular events compared to a ...
BACKGROUND: Patients undergoing surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) are considered at high risk of infective endocarditis (IE). However, data on the risk of IE following transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) are sparse and limited by the lack of long-term follow-up as well as a direct comparison with patients undergoing SAVR.. OBJECTIVES: This study sought to investigate the long-term incidence of IE in patients undergoing TAVR and to compare the long-term risk of IE with patients undergoing isolated SAVR.. METHODS: In this nationwide observational cohort study, all patients undergoing TAVR and isolated SAVR from January 1, 2008, to December 31, 2016, with no history of IE and alive at discharge were identified using data from Danish nationwide registries.. RESULTS: A total of 2,632 patients undergoing TAVR and 3,777 patients undergoing isolated SAVR were identified. During a mean follow-up of 3.6 years, 115 patients (4.4%) with TAVR and 186 patients (4.9%) with SAVR were admitted ...
The importance of bleeding and its sequelae have been increasingly recognised by interventional cardiologists. We are undertaking increasingly complex percutaneous interventions, performed upon higher-risk patients, who are more elderly with a greater range of comorbidities,1 and using multiple anticoagulant pharmacotherapies,2 which may all increase susceptibility to bleeding. The advent of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has allowed cardiologists and surgeons to offer treatment for aortic valve disease to a similarly high-risk cohort of patients. The PARTNER randomised trial having demonstrated a survival benefit,3 the challenge is now to improve the safety profile of the procedure, and addressing the risk of bleeding is paramount to this.. Borz et al4 present data from a single centre using the Edwards bioprosthesis (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, California, USA). They report notable bleeding and life-threatening bleeding (LTB) rates of 27.6% and 13.2%, respectively. Their ...

Few data are available regarding radiation exposure to children during cardiac catheterization. Using lithium fluoride thermoluminescent dosimeters, radiation exposure was measured during precatheterization chest roentgenography, fluoroscopy (hemodynamic assessment phase of catheterization) and cineangiography in 30 infants and children, ages 3 days to 21 years. Dosimeters were placed over the eyes, thyroid, anterior chest, posterior chest, anterior abdomen, posterior abdomen and gonads. Average absorbed chest doses were 24.5 mR during chest roentgenography, 5810 mR during catheterization fluoroscopy and 1592 mR during cineangiography. During the complete catheterization, average doses were 26 mR to the eyes, 431 mR to the thyroid area, 150 mR to the abdomen and 11 mR to the gonads. Radiation exposure during pediatric cardiac catheterization is low to the eyes and gonads but ...
Advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an independent predictor of mortality in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). We aimed to identify predictors of 1-year mortality in patients after TAVI stratified by the presence or absence of advanced CKD (defined as estimated glomerular filtration rate ≤30 ml/min/1.73 m2 or permanent renal replacement therapy). Patients (n = 1204) from 10 centers in Europe, Japan, and Israel were included: 464 with and 740 without advanced CKD. Advanced CKD was associated with a 2-fold increase in the adjusted risk of 1-year all-cause death (p |0.001), and a 1.9-fold increase in cardiovascular death (p = 0.016). Interaction-term analysis was used to identify and compare independent predictors of 1-year mortality in both groups. Impaired left ventricular ejection fraction and poor functional class were predictive of death in the advanced CKD group (odds ratio [OR] 2.27, p = 0.002 and OR 3.87, p = 0.003, respectively) but not in ...
Cardiac catheterisation in patients on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) may reveal new information leading to modification of a therapeutic plan and correction of newly recognised or residual lesions. Complications associated with cardiac catheterisation during ECMO are not uncommon and often related to the access site.

Repair of the Transcatheter aortic valve is a minimally invasive procedure. This technique is used without removing it to treat or restore old and damaged aortic valve. The technique used to insert a new valve to the place of the old aortic valve is called the Transcatheter aortic valve replacement system. Between the left atrium and the left ventricle is the mitral valve. Mitral valve disorder is a condition in which the valve ceases working properly, leading to abnormal blood flow. This abnormal blood flow can lead to diseases such as prolapse of the mitral valve and regurgitation of the mitral valve.. Renub Research latest study report "Transcatheter Heart Valve Replacement Market, Volume, Share by Materials (Mechanical and Tissue) Position (Transcather Mitral Valve Replacement and Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement), Region (United States, Germany, China, France, Italy, Japan, Spain, United Kingdom, India and Brazil), Company Analysis" provides a detailed and comprehensive insight of ...
Applications of virtual reality in Interventional Radiology have largely been directed towards development of simulators for teaching and for training in catheterization procedures or for demonstrating specific interventions such as angioplasty, stent placement or intra-arterial drug infusion therapy. Primary advantages of such systems are that they provide the clinician with an opportunity to practice hand-eye coordinated catheter manipulations that previously could only be achieved during actual patient studies or in the animal laboratory. Difficulties with the systems include problems relating to modeling realistic interactions between the catheter and blood vessels and difficulties in providing the clinician with a library of vascular reconstructions demonstrating pathologies from actual patient databases. Also, because the catheterization procedure is so closely linked with imaging equipment, it is a challenge to reproduce the clinical setting insofar as the clinician ...
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a way to replace the aortic valve without open-heart surgery. This procedure is done to treat aortic valve stenosis.. TAVR is often done through an incision (cut) in the groin. But sometimes a small cut is made in the chest. The doctor uses a tube called a catheter and tools that fit inside the catheter. The doctor puts the catheter into a blood vessel and moves it through the blood vessel and into the heart. The artificial valve fits inside the catheter. The doctor then moves the new valve into the damaged aortic valve. The artificial valve expands and takes the place of the damaged valve.. You may have general anesthesia, which makes you sleep during the surgery. Or you may get a sedative that will help you relax.. To see if TAVR might be a choice for you, a team of doctors will check many things about your heart and your overall health. Together you can decide if you want to have the procedure.. ...

Project Brave Heart, the second program, is a pilot study led by Anne Dubin, MD, professor of pediatrics, and Lauren Schneider, PsyD, clinical assistant professor of child and adolescent psychiatry, which is exploring the use of VR for "stress inoculation therapy" and aims to help young patients mitigate pre-procedure anxiety through cognitive behavioral therapy techniques.. The Project Brave Heart VR experience leads study participants -- patients ages 8-25 who have planned cardiac catheterization procedures -- through a virtual tour of what they will experience on the day of their procedure. Throughout the virtual tour, patients also have opportunities to enter therapeutic VR relaxation and meditation experiences during moments of stress or anxiety.. A third program, meanwhile, uses a 3-D virtual imaging technology to help surgeons to virtually map their route inside the operating room. This technology was highlighted in a recent feature story on the Packard Childrens ...
Transcatheter heart valve implantation techniques recently have been developed. The basic principle is based on fixation of a pericardial xenograft in a low-profile nitinol or steel stent that can be crimped onto a catheter. Because of the low profile of the stent, excellent hemodynamic function of these devices may be achieved. Access to the heart is gained by using a transfemoral or a transapical approach. Experimental studies on different approaches have been performed (5,6), and clinical feasibility studies in selected high-risk patients have been conducted (7-9). Recently the concept of transcatheter transapical aortic valve implantation has been proven clinically (10).. All of these nonconventional approaches aim at treating high-risk patients with degenerative valve disease. To minimize the reoperative risk for failed xenografts, the VinV concept was developed. This VinV concept takes advantage of recently developed transcatheter valve implantation techniques as well as clinical ...

Although the echocardiographic assessment of post-TAVI AR remains challenging, cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) allows direct quantification of AR. The aim of this study was to review the level of agreement between 2-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (2D TTE) and CMR on grading the severity of AR after TAVI, and determine the accuracy of TTE in detecting moderate or severe AR. Electronic databases were ...
The Edwards SAPIEN 3 Transcatheter Heart Valve System and Edwards SAPIEN 3 Ultra Transcatheter Heart Valve System are indicated for relief of aortic stenosis in patients with symptomatic heart disease due to severe native calcific aortic stenosis who are judged by a Heart Team, including a cardiac surgeon, to be appropriate for the transcatheter heart valve replacement therapy.. The Edwards SAPIEN 3 Transcatheter Heart Valve System and Edwards SAPIEN 3 Ultra Transcatheter Heart Valve System are indicated for patients with symptomatic heart disease due to failure (stenosed, insufficient, or combined) of a surgical bioprosthetic aortic or mitral valve who are judged by a heart team, including a cardiac surgeon, to be at high or greater risk for open surgical therapy (i.e., predicted risk of surgical mortality ≥ 8% at 30 days, based on the STS risk score and other clinical co-morbidities unmeasured by the STS risk calculator).. Contraindications (Who should not use): ...
The left ventricular apex has excellent accessibility to the aortic valve, mitral valve, left ventricular outflow tract and thoracic aorta. Although the number of transapical approach in transcatheter aortic valve replacement has been decreasing in recent years, it is still a useful option for patients with very poor peripheral vascular access. The apex has been chosen as a primary access site for many devices of transcatheter mitral valve repair/replacement and mitral valve-in-valve procedures. Additionally, the transapical approach has been used for other transcatheter cardiovascular interventions such as paravalvular leak repair after mitral or aortic valve replacement, pseudoaneurysm repair of the left ventricular outflow tract, and thoracic endovascular aortic repair ...
This report contrasts the diagnostic precision of cardiac catheterization technics with selective cinefluorography in 37 consecutive patients with suspected congenital heart disease and demonstrates the increased diagnostic precision gained by combining the technics in the individual patient.. The complete diagnosis was correctly determined preoperatively by combined study in 13 of the 14 patients operated upon. Neither technic completely diagnosed a cor triatiorium with anomalous pulmonary venous drainage. Of these 13 patients the precise diagnosis could be established solely by catheterization in 11 and solely by cinefluorography in eight. Catheterization studies failed to distinguish a coronary A-V fistula from other causes ...
OBJECTIVES: Describe changes in measures of right ventricular (RV) function in patients treated for aortic stenosis using open-chest surgery (SAVR) or transcatheter treatment (TAVR).. METHODS: Patients in the Nordic Aortic Valve Intervention (NOTION) trial were randomized 1:1 to TAVR (n = 114) or SAVR (n = 106). Echocardiography was performed at baseline and 3 and 12 months post-procedure. Tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion (TAPSE) and right ventricular fractional area change (RVFAC) were used as measures of longitudinal and transverse RV contraction. Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and LV atrioventricular plane displacement (AVPD) were recorded as measures of LV function. Association to NYHA class was examined.. RESULTS: There were no differences in echocardiographic measurements between TAVR and SAVR at baseline. In the SAVR group, TAPSE was reduced after 3 months (2.4 ± 0.5 cm vs 1.6 ± 0.4 cm; P , 0.001), and 12 months (2.4 ± 0.5 cm vs 1.7 ± 0.4 cm; P , 0.001). RVFAC was ...
Working in concert, the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI), the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS), the Alliance of Cardiovascular Professionals (ACVP) and the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) announce the release of the IAC Cardiovascular Catheterization accreditation program. Representatives from these organizations, as well as pediatric cardiologist and nurse members-at-large, have developed standards and created the accreditation process. The program establishes quality metrics and provides a rigorous evaluation through clinical peer review of the facilitys processes, documentation, and imaging critical to quality patient care as it relates to cardiovascular catheterization procedures.
Currently, aortic valve replacement procedures require a sternotomy and use of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) to arrest the heart and provide a bloodless field in which to operate. A less invasive alternative to open heart surgery is transapical or transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), already emerging as a feasible treatment for patients with high surgical risk. The bioprosthetic valves are delivered via catheters using transarterial or transapical approaches and are implanted within diseased aortic valves. This paper reports the development of a new self-expanding stent for minimally invasive aortic valve replacement and its delivery device for the transapical approach under real-time magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guidance. Made of nitinol, the new stent is designed to implant and embed a commercially available bioprosthetic aortic valve in aortic root. An MRI passive marker was affixed onto the stent and an MRI active marker to the delivery device. These ...
The Edwards SAPIEN 3 THV System and Edwards SAPIEN 3 Ultra THV System were previously approved for the treatment of severe aortic stenosis (a narrowing of the aortic valve that restricts blood flow to aorta, the bodys main artery) in patients at intermediate and greater risk for surgical therapy.
As life expectancy has increased, so has the prevalence of heart valve disease, including a type called aortic valve stenosis. Now a minimally invasive procedure called TAVR is providing an alternative to open-heart surgery for treating the condition.

Severe symptomatic aortic stenosis is a serious condition of elderly, mostly geriatric patients with a poor prognosis if the valve is not replaced. Since geriatricians are able to provide major expertise in the prognostic assessment as well in the clinical management of these patients, they need to be more closely involved in the decision making process. For this reason the European Union Geriatric Medicine Society (EUGMS) represented by the authors phrased three propositions: (1) geriatricians need to be aware of the impact of severe aortic stenosis on patients outcomes and should be encouraged to take an active role in aortic stenosis management; (2) they need to be aware of treatment options and are required to support multidisciplinary teams with their expertise in assessing geriatric patients; (3) they should routinely perform a comprehensive geriatric assessment in patients with severe aortic stenosis scheduled to undergo surgical or transcatheter aortic valve replacement and during ...
Press Release issued Feb 23, 2017: According to the latest market report published by Persistence Market Research titled Global Transcatheter Heart Valve Replacement & Repair Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast, 2016 - 2026, the global transcatheter heart valve replacement & repair market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 13.9% during the forecast period (2016-2026).
Pulmonary artery catheterization is associated with numerous complications, including serious arrhythmias. We report a case where ventricular tachycardia occurred repeatedly during attempted pulmonary artery catheterization, precluding successful catheterization. Transesophageal echocardiography was used to image the tricuspid valve and right ventricle and revealed a Sinus of Valsalva aneurysm protruding significantly into the right ventricle and obstructing advancement of the pulmonary artery catheter. Our case reveals another identifiable cause of serious arrhythmia during pulmonary artery catheterization and highlights how transesophageal echocardiography can be useful in unanticipated ways during cardiac anesthesia and surgery. ...
We describe a case of 43-year-old man with transcatheter closure of atrial septal defect (ASD) with the Amplatzer Septal Occluder that was embolized to the main pulmonary artery. Echocardiography could not identify the occluder device at the interatrial septal position. Tomography confirmed its dislocation (Figure 1). Silent device dislodgement which is a rare complication in terms of being asymptomatic was managed immediately. It was removed via pulmonary arteriotomy (Figure 2A and B) and the ostium secundum ASD without inferior rim was closed by using an autologous pericardial patch on total cardiopulmonary bypass. His postoperative period was uneventful.. Key words: Device Removal; Heart Septal Defects, Atrial; Septal Occluder Device ...
We report a case of 70-year-old woman who had bilateral coronary arteriovenous fistula(CAVF) and treated with percutaneous transcatheter coil embolization. Enlarged LV and reduced global LV systolic function were demonstrated on transthoracic echocardiography. Coronary angiography revealed a large coronary arteriovenous fistula from the right coronary artery to the main pulmonary artery and a small fistula from the left coronary artery to the main pulmonary artery. Percutaneous transcatheter coil embolization for CAVF from the right coronary artery to the main pulmonary artery was successfully performed with symptomatic improvement. ...
A widened pulse pressure could be a sign of a patent ductus arteriosus in an infant. This is defined as a difference between systolic and diastolic blood pressure of greater than 15 to 25 mmHg, in premature infants and greater than 25 mmHg in term infants [1]. It is thought that diastolic runoff from blood flow shunting across the aorta to the pulmonary artery, through the patent ductus arteriosus, will produce a lower diastolic pressure and therefore widen the pulse pressure in the affected infant [1]. In our retrospective chart review, 116 premature infants were identified with a patent ductus arteriosus and compared to 42 premature infants without a patent ductus arteriosus. The blood pressures obtained were recorded for the first 7 days of life of the patients. Our studies revealed that premature infants with a patent ductus arteriosus had a mean pulse pressure of19 mmHg (p-value 0.129) when compared to infants without a patent ductus arteriosus,16 mmHg, on day 1 of life. The mean pulse pressures

This story was written by Nish Patel, MD, FACC, Albany Associates in Cardiology, a member of St. Peters Health Partners Medical Associates.]. In its upcoming February 27 print edition, The New England Journal of Medicine is set to publish a study that shows patients who underwent minimally invasive transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) surgery had similar clinical outcomes as patients who had traditional open-heart surgery.. The five-year study compared long-term outcomes of TAVR versus open-heart approaches to treating aortic valve stenosis. According to the American Heart Association, nearly 1.5 million people in the U.S. have aortic valve stenosis, which, if left untreated, often results in heart failure or death.. Aortic valve stenosis is a narrowing or hardening of the aortic valve most often caused by calcium buildup on the heart valve flaps. When the valve cannot fully open, less oxygen-rich blood flows to the body. This forces the heart to work harder to pump blood, and ...
MARQUETTE - For those with cardiovascular problems who are deemed too weak or frail for open heart surgery, UP Health System - Marquette has an alternative solution: the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement procedure. TAVR is a minimally invasive surgery that repairs the heart valve without removing the original, damaged valve. It calls for wedging a replacement valve in the aortic valves place. Similar to a stent, the TAVR procedure delivers the replacement valve to the valve site through a catheter. "People who have severe aortic stenosis have symptoms of chest pain, shortness of breath or dizziness with exertion," said Dr. Kris Dosh of UP Health System - Marquette. "Those symptoms almost always get better with the valve replacement … There is also a survival benefit.". The original trials for TAVR were designed to look at people who werent candidates for surgical valves and to see if there was a safer alternative. The first large study showed that patients did better ...
The American College of Cardiology have released a free online handbook on transcatheter heart valves for residents and fellows training in both cardiovascular medicine and cardiothoracic surgery.. The handbook is a fantastic resource that covers the basics including valvular anatomy, standard wires, and fluoroscopy; step-by-step guides for various prostheses and approaches; and current trials. The handbook is intended to evolve as do the transcatheter technologies as well.. http://www.acc.org/tvhbook. ...
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has emerged as an alternative to valve replacement surgery (VRS) in cases of severe aortic stenosis in patients with intermediate or high surgical risk and those who are inoperable. The occurrence of conduction disorders requiring definitive pacemaker implantation (DP) after the procedure is not uncommon, represents an important clinical event, its incidence remains high in TAVI versus VRS, the presence of aortic calcification had a greater association with atrioventricular block (AVB) and the necessity for DP as a consequence of mechanical trauma to the bundle of His. The aim of the study was, therefore, to assess the risk factors for total AVB (AVBT) after TAVI in a cohort of a single large center, using a multi-parameter approach, taking into account aortic valve calcification based on multidetector computed tomography (multidetector computed tomography - MDCT) enhanced by contrast. Retrospective procedures were performed retrospectively between ...
