Pathological conditions involving any of the various HEART VALVES and the associated structures (PAPILLARY MUSCLES and CHORDAE TENDINEAE).
Flaps of tissue that prevent regurgitation of BLOOD from the HEART VENTRICLES to the HEART ATRIA or from the PULMONARY ARTERIES or AORTA to the ventricles.
The valve between the left ventricle and the ascending aorta which prevents backflow into the left ventricle.
A device that substitutes for a heart valve. It may be composed of biological material (BIOPROSTHESIS) and/or synthetic material.
The valve between the left atrium and left ventricle of the heart.
A pathological constriction that can occur above (supravalvular stenosis), below (subvalvular stenosis), or at the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
Pathological condition characterized by the backflow of blood from the ASCENDING AORTA back into the LEFT VENTRICLE, leading to regurgitation. It is caused by diseases of the AORTIC VALVE or its surrounding tissue (aortic root).
Prosthesis, usually heart valve, composed of biological material and whose durability depends upon the stability of the material after pretreatment, rather than regeneration by host cell ingrowth. Durability is achieved 1, mechanically by the interposition of a cloth, usually polytetrafluoroethylene, between the host and the graft, and 2, chemically by stabilization of the tissue by intermolecular linking, usually with glutaraldehyde, after removal of antigenic components, or the use of reconstituted and restructured biopolymers.
The hollow, muscular organ that maintains the circulation of the blood.
Surgical insertion of synthetic material to repair injured or diseased heart valves.
Backflow of blood from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the LEFT ATRIUM due to imperfect closure of the MITRAL VALVE. This can lead to mitral valve regurgitation.
A valve situated at the entrance to the pulmonary trunk from the right ventricle.
Narrowing of the passage through the MITRAL VALVE due to FIBROSIS, and CALCINOSIS in the leaflets and chordal areas. This elevates the left atrial pressure which, in turn, raises pulmonary venous and capillary pressure leading to bouts of DYSPNEA and TACHYCARDIA during physical exertion. RHEUMATIC FEVER is its primary cause.
The valve consisting of three cusps situated between the right atrium and right ventricle of the heart.
Cardiac manifestation of systemic rheumatological conditions, such as RHEUMATIC FEVER. Rheumatic heart disease can involve any part the heart, most often the HEART VALVES and the ENDOCARDIUM.
Abnormal protrusion or billowing of one or both of the leaflets of MITRAL VALVE into the LEFT ATRIUM during SYSTOLE. This allows the backflow of blood into left atrium leading to MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY; SYSTOLIC MURMURS; or CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA.
Pathologic deposition of calcium salts in tissues.
The number of times the HEART VENTRICLES contract per unit of time, usually per minute.
Backflow of blood from the RIGHT VENTRICLE into the RIGHT ATRIUM due to imperfect closure of the TRICUSPID VALVE.
Inflammation of the ENDOCARDIUM caused by BACTERIA that entered the bloodstream. The strains of bacteria vary with predisposing factors, such as CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS; HEART VALVE DISEASES; HEART VALVE PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION; or intravenous drug use.
Inflammation of the inner lining of the heart (ENDOCARDIUM), the continuous membrane lining the four chambers and HEART VALVES. It is often caused by microorganisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and rickettsiae. Left untreated, endocarditis can damage heart valves and become life-threatening.
Developmental abnormalities involving structures of the heart. These defects are present at birth but may be discovered later in life.
Flaps within the VEINS that allow the blood to flow only in one direction. They are usually in the medium size veins that carry blood to the heart against gravity.
Ultrasonic recording of the size, motion, and composition of the heart and surrounding tissues. The standard approach is transthoracic.
Pathological conditions involving the HEART including its structural and functional abnormalities.
A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annuli of HEART VALVES. It includes shortening the circumference of the annulus to improve valve closing capacity and reinforcing the annulus as a step in more complex valve repairs.
The tendinous cords that connect each cusp of the two atrioventricular HEART VALVES to appropriate PAPILLARY MUSCLES in the HEART VENTRICLES, preventing the valves from reversing themselves when the ventricles contract.
The plan and delineation of prostheses in general or a specific prosthesis.
Procedures in which placement of CARDIAC CATHETERS is performed for therapeutic or diagnostic procedures.
Ultrasonic recording of the size, motion, and composition of the heart and surrounding tissues using a transducer placed in the esophagus.
A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
Surgery performed on the heart.
The chambers of the heart, to which the BLOOD returns from the circulation.

Infective endocarditis and dentistry: outcome-based research. (1/1481)

Antibiotic prophylaxis for prevention of infective endocarditis has long been recommended for patients receiving dental care. Two studies of patients with endocarditis found limited risk associated with dental treatment. It is imperative that guidelines for therapy be based on outcome studies and on evidence of safety, efficacy and cost effectiveness.  (+info)

Endocarditis at the millennium. (2/1481)

The members of the Interplanetary Society (Pus Club) have made significant contributions to the understanding of the pathogenesis of infective endocarditis (IE). Although the incidence of IE has essentially remained unchanged, the spectrum and characteristics of patients potentially affected by this disorder are expanding. Moreover, in addition to the typical microorganisms implicated in IE, there are increasing reports of new or atypical pathogens causing IE, including those that are resistant to standard antibiotic therapy. The infectious diseases community is challenged to continue to provide effective antimicrobial regimens for IE and to further develop diagnostic and surgical strategies to identify and treat patients with this disorder. New information is available regarding the demographics, diagnostic methods, and therapeutic options for the management of IE.  (+info)

Perivalvular abscesses associated with endocarditis; clinical features and prognostic factors of overall survival in a series of 233 cases. Perivalvular Abscesses French Multicentre Study. (3/1481)

AIMS: The purposes of this study were to determine the clinical features and to identify prognostic factors of abscesses associated with infective endocarditis. METHODS AND RESULTS: During a 5-year period from January 1989, 233 patients with perivalvular abscesses associated with infective endocarditis were enrolled in a retrospective multicentre study. Of the patients, 213 received medical surgical therapy and 20 medical therapy alone. No causative microorganism could be identified in 31% of cases. Sensitivity for the detection of abscesses was 36 and 80%, respectively using transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography. Surgical treatment consisted of primary suture of the abscess (38%), insertion of a felt aortic or mitral ring using Teflon or pericardium (42%), or debridment of the abscess cavity (20%). The 1 month operative mortality was 16%. Actuarial rates for overall survival at 3 and 27 months in operated patients were 75 +/- 10% and 59 +/- 11%, respectively. Increasing patient age, staphylococcal infection, and fistulization of the abscess were found to be independent risk factors in both 1 month and overall operative mortality. Renal failure was a risk factor predictive of operative mortality at 1 month, whereas uncontrolled infection and circumferential abscess were regarded as risk factors predictive of overall operative mortality. CONCLUSION: The data determined prognostic factors of abscesses associated with infective endocarditis.  (+info)

Incidence and aetiology of heart failure; a population-based study. (4/1481)

AIMS: To determine the incidence and aetiology of heart failure in the general population. METHODS AND RESULTS: New cases of heart failure were identified from a population of 151 000 served by 82 general practitioners in Hillingdon, West London through surveillance of acute hospital admissions and through a rapid access clinic to which general practitioners referred all new cases of suspected heart failure. On the basis of clinical assessment, electrocardiography, chest radiography and transthoracic echocardiography, a panel of three cardiologists decided that 220 patients met the case definition of new heart failure over a 20 month period (crude incidence rate of 1.3 cases per 1000 population per year for those aged 25 years or over). The incidence rate increased from 0.02 cases per 1000 population per year in those aged 25-34 years to 11.6 in those aged 85 years and over. The incidence was higher in males than females (age-adjusted incidence ratio 1.75 [95% confidence interval 1.34-2.29, P<0.0001]). The median age at presentation was 76 years. The primary aetiologies were coronary heart disease (36%), unknown (34%), hypertension (14%), valve disease (7%), atrial fibrillation alone (5%), and other (5%). CONCLUSIONS: Within the general population, new cases of heart failure largely occur in the elderly, and the incidence is higher in men than women. The single most common aetiology is coronary heart disease, but in a third of cases the aetiology cannot be determined on the basis of non-invasive investigation alone. To be relevant to clinical practice, future clinical trials in heart failure should not exclude the elderly.  (+info)

Echocardiographic features of an unusual case of aortic valve endocarditis. (5/1481)

In a patient with aortic valve endocarditis a myocardial abscess, complete heart block and acute aortic regurgitation developed. Echocardiography gave evidence of large aortic valve vegetations, and at operation vegetations were found to have destroyed the right coronary cusp and part of the noncoronary cusp. Following surgery the patient recovered. Echocardiography may prove to be a useful noninvasive technique to aid in the timing of surgical therapy in patients with valvular vegetations.  (+info)

The natural history of aortic valve disease after mitral valve surgery. (6/1481)

OBJECTIVES: The present study evaluates the long-term course of aortic valve disease and the need for aortic valve surgery in patients with rheumatic mitral valve disease who underwent mitral valve surgery. BACKGROUND: Little is known about the natural history of aortic valve disease in patients undergoing mitral valve surgery for rheumatic mitral valve disease. In addition there is no firm policy regarding the appropriate treatment of mild aortic valve disease while replacing the mitral valve. METHODS: One-hundred thirty-one patients (44 male, 87 female; mean age 61+/-13 yr, range 35 to 89) were followed after mitral valve surgery for a mean period of 13+/-7 years. All patients had rheumatic heart disease. Aortic valve function was assessed preoperatively by cardiac catheterization and during follow-up by transthoracic echocardiography. RESULTS: At the time of mitral valve surgery, 59 patients (45%) had mild aortic valve disease: 7 (5%) aortic stenosis (AS), 58 (44%) aortic regurgitation (AR). At the end of follow-up, 96 patients (73%) had aortic valve disease: 33 AS (mild or moderate except in two cases) and 90 AR (mild or moderate except in one case). Among patients without aortic valve disease at the time of the mitral valve surgery, only three patients developed significant aortic valve disease after 25 years of follow-up procedures. Disease progression was noted in three of the seven patients with AS (2 to severe) and in six of the fifty eight with AR (1 to severe). Fifty two (90%) with mild AR remained stable after a mean follow-up period of 16 years. In only three patients (2%) the aortic valve disease progressed significantly after 9, 17 and 22 years. In only six patients of the entire cohort (5%), aortic valve replacement was needed after a mean period of 21 years (range 15 to 33). In four of them the primary indication for the second surgery was dysfunction of the prosthetic mitral valve. CONCLUSIONS: Our findings indicate that, among patients with rheumatic heart disease, a considerable number of patients have mild aortic valve disease at the time of mitral valve surgery. Yet most do not progress to severe disease, and aortic valve replacement is rarely needed after a long follow-up period. Thus, prophylactic valve replacement is not indicated in these cases.  (+info)

Transesophageal echocardiographic assessment in trauma and critical care. (7/1481)

Cardiac ultrasonography, in particular transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) provides high-quality real-time images of the beating heart and mediastinal structures. The addition of Doppler technology introduces a qualitative and quantitative assessment of blood flow in the heart and vascular structures. Because of its ease of insertion and ready accessibility, TEE has become an important tool in the routine management of critically ill patients, as a monitor in certain operative settings and in the aortic and cardiac evaluation of trauma patients. The rapid assessment of cardiac preload, contractility and valve function are invaluable in patients with acute hemodynamic decompensation in the intensive care unit as well as in the operating room. Because of its ease and portability, the TEE assessment of traumatic aortic injury after blunt chest trauma can be rapidly undertaken even in patients undergoing life-saving procedures. The role of TEE in the surgical and critical care setting will no doubt increase as more people become aware of its potential.  (+info)

Lysostaphin treatment of experimental aortic valve endocarditis caused by a Staphylococcus aureus isolate with reduced susceptibility to vancomycin. (8/1481)

The rabbit model of endocarditis was used to test the effectiveness of vancomycin and two different lysostaphin dosing regimens for the treatment of infections caused by a Staphylococcus aureus strain with reduced susceptibility to vancomycin (glycopeptide-intermediate susceptible S. aureus [GISA]). Vancomycin was ineffective, with no evidence of sterilization of aortic valve vegetations. However, rates of sterilization of aortic valve vegetations were significantly better for animals treated with either a single dose of lysostaphin (43%) or lysostaphin given twice daily for 3 days (83%) than for animals treated with vancomycin. Rabbits given a single dose of lysostaphin followed by a 3-day drug-free period had mean reductions in aortic valve vegetation bacterial counts of 7.27 and 6.63 log10 CFU/g compared with those for untreated control rabbits and the vancomycin-treated group, respectively. We conclude that lysostaphin is an effective alternative for the treatment of experimental aortic valve endocarditis caused by a clinical VISA strain.  (+info)

Theres two kinds of heart valve disease-heart disease caused by narrowed heart valves, and heart disease caused by leaky heart valves. All of them comes from a number of different causes, varying from birth defects, to microbial infection, to aging.. Congential Heart Valve Disease. Hereditary heart valve is easily the most common, and can lead to inflexible or narrowed, or floppy, valves, or irregular valve flaps. Hereditary heart valve disease is frequently diagnosed inside a couple of times of a babys birth, however, if the defect is minor, might not be discovered until later. Heart valve disease can be quite difficult to identify because some types of it dont produce signs and symptoms.. Many people, however, acquire heart valve disease due to complications from another disease for example heart muscle disease, heart disease and cardiac arrest. A young child that has endured from the rheumatic heart disease due to a simple strep throat will probably to possess a valvular disease when she ...
Heart valves can have three basic kinds of problems: regurgitation, stenosis, and atresia.. Regurgitation, or backflow, occurs if a valve doesnt close tightly. Blood leaks back into the chambers rather than flowing forward through the heart or into an artery.. In the United States, backflow most often is due to prolapse. Prolapse is when the flaps of the valve flop or bulge back into an upper heart chamber during a heartbeat. Prolapse mainly affects the mitral valve.. Stenosis occurs if the flaps of a valve thicken, stiffen, or fuse together. This prevents the heart valve from fully opening. As a result, not enough blood flows through the valve. Some valves can have both stenosis and backflow problems.. Atresia occurs if a heart valve lacks an opening for blood to pass through.. Some people are born with heart valve disease, while others acquire it later in life. Heart valve disease that develops before birth is called congenital heart valve disease. Congenital heart valve disease can occur ...
Heart valve disease is caused by either wear, disease or damage of one or more of the hearts valves, affecting the flow of blood through the heart. The most common symptoms are breathlessness, chest pain, dizziness and fainting. However, if diagnosed and treated early, patients can return to a good quality of life. It is estimated that more than 1 in 8 people over the age of 75 suffer from moderate to severe heart valve disease, yet 3 out of 4 people know little or nothing about the condition. Due to the increase of ageing populations across the world the number of people affected by heart valve disease will keep growing. Studies show that people with serious aortic stenosis, the most common type of heart valve disease in the elderly, have only a 50% chance of surviving for two years with the disease if they are not being treated.. ...

The members of Global Heart Hubs valve disease council have resources to help you track your symptoms and I would encourage all valve disease ...
Your heart is a muscular pump that has four chambers and four valves. The four valves are the mitral, aortic, tricuspid, and pulmonary valves. The valves open and close to keep blood flowing in the proper direction through your heart. When something is wrong with one of the valves, the blood cannot flow in and out of the heart properly. Problems with the heart valves can cause leaks (valve regurgitation) and blockages (valve stenosis). You can be born with heart valve disease, or it can develop over a number of years. Mild cases of heart valve disease may not cause problems, but more serious cases will weaken the heart and can lead to heart failure. Treatment with medicine can help relieve symptoms, but it will not fix the valve. You may need to have the valve replaced or repaired. ...

Heart surgery is common throughout the world with over 700,000 heart surgeries performed each year. Of those, 250,000 are heart valve repair or replacement surgeries. Traditionally, valve repair and replacement is completed by separating the chest bone and accessing the valve through an opening in the chest wall with a vertical incision running approximately 8-10 inches long. However, over the past two decades, through advances in medicine and patient demand, small incision surgery, sometimes referred to as minimal access surgery is now commonly being used to repair or replace heart valves with as little as a 3-4 inch surgical incision between the ribs.. There are four heart valves that control the flow of blood through a heart. They are called the aortic, mitral, pulmonary and tricuspid valves. The aortic and mitral valves are the two most common valves requiring surgical intervention. Heart valve disease occurs when one or more of the four heart valves is not fully doing its job, and causes ...
Heart Valve Disease is any condition that disrupts the proper function of the valve. There are four valves in the heart which help keep blood flowing in a forward direction as the various chambers of the heart squeeze or fill. Normal heart valves open fully to allow blood to flow in a forward direction through the heart and close tightly to prevent blood from flowing backward.. There are two general types of valve disease. If the valve does not open properly, the forward flow is restricted. This is called stenosis. If the valve fails to close properly, backward flow is not prevented when the heart pumps. This is called regurgitation or insufficiency.. In either case, forward flow is reduced and symptoms such as breathlessness, weakness, dizziness and fainting can occur.. ...

Most common heart valve diseases in western industrialized nations are the aortic valve stenosis and the mitral valve regurgitation. More seldom are a regurgitation of the aortic valve and mitral valve stenosis. Even more seldom are heart valve diseases of the Tricuspid and the pulmonary valve. The only curative therapy in severe heart valve disease is a surgical intervention. The timing is crucial for the outcome. Especially in asymptomatic patients its difficult to find the right point of time for intervention due to missing realization of the health status. In 2013, the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (EACTS) and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) published guidelines according to the therapy in heart valve disease. Here we want to summarize the recommendations of these guidelines in regards of timing of the surgical intervention. ...

In heart valve surgery, your surgeon repairs or replaces the affected heart valves.
Cells sense forces from the extracellular matrix (ECM) and transduce them into biochemical signals. The molecules produced cause in turn remodeling of the ECM. Molecular altered expression will affect this force sensing mechanism changing cellular properties as migration, differentiation, etc. Therefore, cells mechanical properties can be used as a marker for the early diagnosis of pathologies as cancer or cardiovascular diseases. In this framework, Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) represents an excellent tool to evaluate the mechanical properties of different cellular systems. In this talk, we will analyze the mechanical properties of aortic valve interstitial cells (VICs), the predominant constituent of aortic valves, governing ECM structure and composition, in the onset of calcific aortic valve disease (CAVD). In particular, we obtained adhesion polymeric substrates with different stiffness onto which human AoV VICs were plated, and subsequently investigated for the cytoskeleton dynamics and the
Heart valve diseases are common with an estimated prevalence of 2.5% in the Western world. The number is rising due to an ageing population. Once symptomatic, heart valve diseases are potentially lethal, and heavily influence daily living and quality of life. Surgical treatment, either valve replacement or repair, remains the treatment of choice. However, post surgery, the transition to daily living may become a physical, mental and social challenge. We hypothesise that a comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation programme can improve physical capacity and self-assessed mental health and reduce hospitalisation and healthcare costs after heart valve surgery. A randomised clinical trial, CopenHeartVR, aims to investigate whether cardiac rehabilitation in addition to usual care is superior to treatment as usual after heart valve surgery. The trial will randomly allocate 210 patients, 1:1 intervention to control group, using central randomisation, and blinded outcome assessment and statistical analyses. The

TY - JOUR. T1 - Three-dimensional echocardiography in valvular heart disease. AU - Cai, Qiangjun. AU - Ahmad, Masood. PY - 2012/1. Y1 - 2012/1. N2 - Two-dimensional echocardiography (2DE) with color Doppler has been the standard tool for assessing valvular heart disease. However, this requires conceptualizing three-dimensional (3D) valvular anatomy from individual 2D slices, which is inadequate for complex valvular abnormalities. Similarly, Doppler-based methods are inherently limited by several assumptions and are influenced by hemodynamics and concomitant valvular disease. 3DE has improved both morphological and functional assessment of valvular heart disease. It provides additional morphological information, which leads to better understanding of the mechanism of valvular dysfunction and surgical planning. 3D planimetry has proven to be accurate in the evaluation of valvular stenosis. This direct assessment eliminates measurement errors and could potentially serve as new gold standard. The ...

There are two basic types of heart valve defects: a narrowing of a valve (stenosis) and a leak in a valve that allows blood to back up (regurgitation). You might need heart valve surgery if you have one of these defects and its affecting your hearts ability to pump blood.. Your doctor will evaluate you to determine the most appropriate treatment for your condition. If you dont have signs or symptoms, or your condition is mild, your doctor might suggest monitoring over time. In that case, healthy lifestyle changes and medications might help manage symptoms.. Eventually, your valve might need to be repaired or replaced. In some cases, doctors recommend heart valve repair or replacement even if youre not having symptoms. If you need heart surgery for another condition, doctors might repair or replace the affected heart valve at the same time.. Your doctor will discuss with you whether heart valve repair or replacement is more appropriate for your condition. Doctors often recommend heart valve ...
Various vasodilators have improved ventricular performance and reduced AR magnitude (nitrates, hydralazine, ACEIs).47-50 However, only long-acting nifedipine has reduced morbidity and mortality. Reduction in LV mean wall stress and increased LVEF had been reported with long-acting nifedipine among asymptomatic patients with severe AR and normal LV systolic function.51 Subsequently, a randomized, controlled trial demonstrated that, in comparison with digoxin, long-acting nifedipine delayed indications for AVR in asymptomatic patients with severe AR and normal LV systolic function.52 Although outcomes with digoxin were similar to those previously reported in the absence of therapy,35,53 concern about the potential confounding effect of digoxin persisted until another randomized, controlled trial, comparing nifedipine with no drug therapy, revealed that long-acting nifedipine delayed the need for AVR and also improved clinical/functional status long after AVR.54 The reason for the efficacy of ...

At times, one or more valves do not close or open properly and this leads to disruptions in the blood flow from heart to body. Such a condition is called heart valve disease and the treatment of the condition is dependent on the severity and type of the disease and the heart valve that is damaged. Atresia, stenosis, and regurgitation are the basic issues of heart valves. Disease of heart valves can be present at the time or birth or it can also develop in later stages of life or in adulthood because of several conditions and causes, such as other types of heart conditions and infections ...

Valvular heart disease accounts for a substantial part of the cardiovascular disease worldwide with an estimated prevalence of 2.5% in the Western population aged ,65 years and over 13% in the population aged ,75 years. Surgical prosthetic heart valve (PHV) replacement is the indicated therapy for severe valve disease or ... read more in symptomatic patients. PHV-related complications are serious and potentially life threatening and include structural valve deterioration, regurgitation, endocarditis and obstruction. Acquired PHV obstruction is mostly caused by valve thrombosis or pannus (fibrous subprosthetic tissue), whereas valve obstruction presenting early after implantation may be caused by patient prosthesis mismatch. Depending on the cause and severity of dysfunction, the treatment may include antibiotic therapy, anticoagulant therapy, fibrinolysis, redo valve surgery or valve-in-valve implantation and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Hence, baseline and follow-up imaging ...
Oldham and colleagues conducted a meta-analysis of 12 clinical studies that had assessed the cognitive scores of adults before and after undergoing heart valve surgery. A total of 12 clinical studies, which included 450 patients who had early cognitive assessments (one week to one month after surgery) and 722 patients with intermediate assessments (two to six months after surgery), were included in the analysis. The researchers identified no studies that explored long-term cognitive changes after heart valve surgery, which they noted is a major research gap. ...

Valvular disease can be congenital or acquired sometime during life. Leaflets can be the wrong size, malformed, or are not connected to the annulus properly.. Bicuspid aortic valve disease is a congenital valve disease of the aortic valve. Instead of the normal three leaflets the bicuspid aortic valve has only two. The valve may be unable to open or close properly, or not able close tightly.. Acquired valve disease is when valves that were once normal, are now abnormal. These may due to a variety of diseases or infections, including rheumatic fever or endocarditis ...
Background Limited information is available regarding genetic contributions to valvular calcification, which is an important precursor of clinical valve disease. Methods We determined genomewide associations with the presence of aortic-valve calcification (among 6942 participants) and mitral annular calcification (among 3795 participants), as detected by computed tomographic (CT) scanning; the study population for this analysis included persons of white European ancestry from three cohorts participating in the Cohorts for Heart and Aging Research in Genomic Epidemiology consortium (discovery population). Findings were replicated in independent cohorts of persons with either CT-detected valvular calcification or clinical aortic stenosis. Results One SNP in the lipoprotein(a) (LPA) locus (rs10455872) reached genomewide significance for the presence of aortic-valve calcification (odds ratio per allele, 2.05; P = 9.0x10(-10)), a finding that was replicated in additional white European, ...

Background: The vascular effects of high density lipoprotein (HDL) may be highly heterogeneous. Normal HDL protects vascular function. Vascular function plays an important role in maintaining the circulation stable post-cardiac surgery. The vascular effects of HDL in valvular heart disease (VHD) and cardiac surgery remain unknown. The present study is to determine the vascular effects of HDL from VHD and cardiac surgery.. Methods: HDL was isolated from healthy subjects and patients with VHD and during cardiac surgery. HDL inflammation index was measured by cell free assay. Effects of HDL on vasodilation, protein interaction, generation of nitric oxide (NO) and superoxide anion (O2·-) were determined.. Results: HDL inflammation index significantly increased in VHD patients and post-cardiac surgery. HDL from VHD patients and post-cardiac surgery significantly impaired endothelium-dependent vasodilation, inhibited both Akt and endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) phosphorylation, eNOS ...
Medical therapy for severe degenerative valve disease is palliative at best in both dogs and in man. The definitive treatment for severe degenerative valve disease in man is surgical valve replacement or repair. Surgical valve repair options in dogs have intrinsic limitations and is not available at most veterinary specialty centers or universities. Transcatheter valve replacement is a potential new therapeutic option that avoids the limitations and complications of open heart valve replacement or repair. It would also be more accessible, less expensive and much less invasive compared to surgical repair or replacement.. Ultravet Medical Devices, a veterinary medical device company located in Bohemia, New York, creates devices which are designed to treat common problems in veterinary medicine which are difficult to treat using current available treatments. The company was founded by George Kramer, a board-certified veterinary cardiologist who has been in specialty practice for over 25 years. The ...

The spontaneous activation of VICs in standard in vitro culture on TCPS is a major limiting factor in the study of healthy valve biology and calcific aortic valve disease (CAVD). Previously, a media formulation (FIB) capable of deactivating VICs had been reported; however, this formulation had been tested only on cells isolated from human valves,11 which experience less robust myofibroblastic activation in culture. Moreover, the utility of these cells in studying VIC response to pathological stimuli has not been demonstrated. In the current study, culture of porcine VICs on TCPS in FIB media significantly reduced several markers of VIC activation, including proliferation, apoptosis, αSMA expression, and matrix production, relative to standard growth medium. A combination of FIB with culture on collagen coatings (FIB‐Coll) achieved similar results and an even greater reduction of proliferation, apoptosis, and matrix production compared with FIB media alone. To our knowledge, this is the first ...
That place is Hamilton General Hospital, Ontarios leader in cardiac surgery. Hamilton General Hospital is one of only three sites in Canada that currently performs mini-aortic valve replacement (mini-AVR) surgery, an innovation with the potential to transform lives.. Aortic stenosis, commonly known as the narrowing of the aortic valve, is one of the most common and most serious heart valve diseases, as it increasingly reduces the flow of blood out of the heart to the rest of the body.. Mini-AVR offers hope for some patients who might require valve replacement surgery. It is giving a second-life to those patients who meet the strict medical criteria for this innovative surgical procedure.. Patients such as Joe deTuba, who was exercising at the gym when his heart rate spiked. After being transported to the local hospital, it was determined that Joe had suffered a heart attack. He was in urgent need of an angioplasty and was transported to Hamilton General Hospital.. Test results showed that Joe ...

A prosthetic heart valve can include a frame, a valve component, and a sealing member. The frame can have an inflow end portion, an outflow end portion, an intermediate portion disposed between the inflow and outflow end portions, and a plurality of struts. The frame can be radially compressible and expandable between a radially-compressed configuration and a radially-expanded configuration. The valve component can be disposed within and coupled to the frame and have a plurality of leaflets. The sealing member can have a plurality of ribs and a plurality of drapes. The ribs can be coupled to and extend radially outwardly from the frame when the frame is in the radially-expanded configuration. The drapes can be coupled to and extend radially between the frame and the ribs. The sealing member can be configured to reduce or prevent perivalvular leakage around the prosthetic heart valve.

  • A normal heart valve has flaps, called leaflets. (
  • When the heart pumps, the leaflets open one way to allow blood to flow through. (

  • If the heart valve is damaged, the leaflets may not form a tight seal, and blood may leak backwards through the valve. (
  • An aortic heart valve that is not calcified, contains only one leaflet, has leaflets with large pieces of calcium that may block the vessels that supply blood to the heart or in which the main problem is that the valve leaks. (
  • This occurs when the valve fails to open as it should due to stiff or fused leaflets. (
  • The flaps (leaflets) of the mitral valve are floppy. (
  • Bioprosthetic valve dysfunction may occur because of either degeneration of the valve leaflets or valve thrombosis. (
  • Three of the heart valves are composed of three leaflets or flaps that work together to open and close to allow blood to flow across the opening. (
