The results of this trial indicate that among patients with severe degenerative aortic stenosis with mostly low STS PROM scores, TAVR with the CoreValve self-expanding prosthesis results in similar 1-year clinical outcomes as SAVR. Stroke risk was similar as well. SAVR resulted in more bleeding complications and atrial fibrillation, while TAVR patients had more aortic regurgitation, less symptomatic benefit, and a higher need for a permanent pacemaker.. Currently, in the United States, TAVR is approved for high-risk (STS PROM ≥8%) and inoperable patients only. Intermediate-risk trials with both balloon-expandable and self-expanding TAVR valves are ongoing. Although this trial is relatively small, the results are fairly interesting. At a broad level, both strategies appear to perform similarly, even in low-risk patients. However, patients in the TAVR arm had higher aortic regurgitation and permanent pacemaker requirements; the impact of these findings on long-term outcomes is unclear. Also, ...

Even in my relatively short consultant career the pattern of clinical work has changed significantly. The coronary intervention I perform is now almost exclusively for acute coronary syndromes and particularly STEMI. I review and report more aortic CT scans than coronary angiograms and I now participate in multiple sub-specialty heart team MDT meetings a week. I have performed increasing numbers of elective aortic valve interventions (TAVI and balloon aortic valvuloplasty) year on year (135 in 2014) with a projected growth of 20% per annum. Our centre is now the largest trans-catheter valve implanting centre in the UK and we are constantly trying to innovate to improve patient outcome using novel valve technologies, cerebral protection devices, alternate vascular access and non-GA procedures ...

Title: Mitral Balloon Valvuloplasty: State-of-the-Art Paper. VOLUME: 2 ISSUE: 1. Author(s):Mohamed E. Fawzy. Affiliation:Consultant, Adult Cardiology,King Faisal Heart Institute (MBC-16), King Faisal Specialist Hospital&Research Center, PO Box 3354, Riyadh 11211, Saudi Arabia.. Keywords:Mitral valve, mitral stenosis, valvuloplasty. Abstract: Percutaneous mitral balloon valvuloplasty (MBV) was introduced in 1984 by Inoue who developed the procedure as a logical extension of surgical closed commissurotomy. Since then, MBV has emerged as the treatment of choice for severe pliable rheumatic mitral stenosis (MS). With increasing experience and better selection of patient, the immediate results of the procedure have improved and the rate of complications declined. When the reported complications of MBV are viewed in aggregate, complications occur at approximately the following rates: mortality (0% to 0.5%), cerebral accident (0.5% to 1%), mitral regurgitation (MR) requiring surgery (2% to 3%). These ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Balloon valvuloplasty.. AU - Bourdillon, P.. AU - Dillon, J.. AU - Brown, S.. AU - Feigenbaum, H.. PY - 1990/10/1. Y1 - 1990/10/1. N2 - Percutaneous balloon valvuloplasty has been used for several years for the treatment of stenosis of all four cardiac valves. It has been particularly effective in pulmonary stenosis in children and in rheumatic mitral stenosis, especially in the younger age groups without severe calcification. After initial enthusiasm, results have not been as good in severe calcific aortic stenosis, although there is a place for aortic valvuloplasty in patients who are truly inoperable for reasons of age or coexisting disease. The procedure also may be applicable to occasional cases of tricuspid stenosis. The techniques used and results obtained with these procedures at Indiana University are described.. AB - Percutaneous balloon valvuloplasty has been used for several years for the treatment of stenosis of all four cardiac valves. It has been particularly ...
The purpose of this study was to compare contemporary results of balloon dilatation and surgery for valvar aortic stenosis in infants and children in the five years between August 1988 and October 1993. Thirty four children underwent attempted balloon valvuloplasty (age 1 day-16 years, weight 1720 g-68 kg) (group 1), eight of whom were neonates with critical aortic stenosis. During the same period, 17 children underwent direct surgical valvotomy (group 2) (seven neonates). Successful balloon valvuloplasty was achieved in 33 (97%) with immediate reduction in the instantaneous systolic pressure gradient from 82 to 34 mm Hg (mean). There were two deaths in this group (both neonates), the second in a preterm neonate from necrotising enterocolitis. Complications requiring intervention in group 1 were aortic regurgitation in one and femoral artery injury in two. Follow up from four months to five years showed sustained results in most cases. There were two neonatal deaths in the surgical group. When ...
A 4-year old male miniature schnauzer with severe pulmonic stenosis was presented for percutaneous balloon valvuloplasty. The dog had been managed medically with atenolol for a month prior to the procedure. Clinical examination was unremarkable except for auscultation of a grade V/VI left-sided systolic murmur. The dog was premedicated with pethidine. Anaesthesia was induced using diazepam and etomidate and maintained using sevoflurane in oxygen. Angiography was uneventful, but when the guidewire was threaded through the right side of the heart to allow insertion of the balloon catheter, marked desaturation with visible cyanosis developed. This resolved on withdrawal of the guidewire and catheter but recurred each time the guidewire and catheter were repositioned. Balloon valvuloplasty was eventually successful in reducing the pressure gradient across the stenotic valve from 102 to 52 mmHg. Hypoxaemia did not recur during recovery and the dog was discharged the following day.. ...

A 38-year-old male with previous surgeries for an incomplete atrioventricular septal defect successfully underwent percutaneous transcatheter tricuspid balloon valvuloplasty for a deteriorated bioprosthetic valve. Our case highlights the imperative of considering catheter-based minimally invasive therapy for the increasing number of adults with congenital heart disease who may present multiple risks factors for surgery.
Congenital pulmonary stenosis balloon valvuloplasty is a procedure that aims to fix pulmonary valve that doesn’t fully open. It does so without the need for open heart surgery.
Dr. Dangas noted, "Technologies to enable heart valve replacement or repair without cracking open a patients chest are emerging rapidly. Last weeks US approval of the SapienTM valve is the most recent example." Anticoagulants are needed peri-procedurally to prevent clotting on the treated area and clotting in other organs such as the brain, which can result in a stroke; however, anticoagulants carry a risk of vascular and bleeding complications. Dr. Dangas said, "Advances in procedures such as PCI, valvuloplasty and TAVI may require improvements in anticoagulation to yield improved patient outcomes.". Clive Meanwell, MD, PhD, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Medicines Company said, "These results validate the commitment we made to study Angiomax once our patent rights were supported. I look forward to seeing the BRAVO program move ahead with a planned study in more patients next year. With continued certainty, we will be positioned to explore the potential of Angiomax to deliver ...

Valvular heart disease (VHD), particularly aortic valve disease, is prevalent with increasing incidence. When surgery is not possible, or when risks outweigh benefits, percutaneous treatment options may offer effective alternatives. However, procedures may not always go as planned, and frail patients or those whose symptoms are caused by other comorbidities may not benefit from valve intervention at all. Significant effort should be made to assess frailty, comorbidities and patient goals prior to intervention. Palliative care (PC) should play a critical role in the care of patients with severe valve disease. PC is specialised medical care that aims to optimise health-related quality of life by managing symptoms and clarifying patient values and goals of care. It should be implemented at the time of diagnosis and continue throughout the disease course. Because of the paucity of studies dedicated to the provision of PC to patients with advanced VHD, further research is needed. ...

N2 - Background: Critical pulmonary stenosis (PS) is one of the life-threatening congenital heart diseases which present during the neonatal period with cyanosis. Surgical valvotomy was once the procedure of choice for critical PS; however, balloon pulmonary valvuloplasty (BPV) has now become the standard treatment. Although the procedure is usually simple, crossing the pulmonary valve from the femoral vein can be difficult, especially when severe tricuspid regurgitation and right atrium dilatation are present. In such patients, the maneuver can be simplified by using the right internal jugular vein approach. However, many ...
article{aaaf1de4-de34-469a-ad34-52c691970e90, abstract = {BACKGROUND: Treating pulmonary valve stenosis with balloon valvuloplasty (BV) is a good model to study the effect of right ventricular (RV) pressures on coronary flow. METHODS: Transthoracic Doppler echocardiography was used to register coronary flow in 10 age-matched healthy controls and 7 neonates before and 1 day after BV. RESULTS: Left ventricular fractional shortening and cardiac output increased significantly after BV. Right coronary artery diameter decreased from 1.2 +/- 0.2 to 1.1 +/- 0.1 mm (P < .02). Posterior descending coronary artery flow parameters decreased significantly, with blood flow decreasing from 8.4 to 5.7 +/- 1.9 mL/s (P < .003). RV end-diastolic pressure and RV systolic pressure explained almost totally the variation in coronary flow (r(2) = 0.87). CONCLUSIONS: RV end-diastolic pressure and RV systolic pressure determined coronary flow in neonates with critical pulmonary valve stenosis. Cardiac output and ...
Peak left ventricular pressure during balloon inflation was measured in 20 patients who underwent balloon valvuloplasty for severe aortic stenosis to define the determinants of ventricular pressure development in response to increased loading conditions. The peak left ventricular pressure ranged from 150 ± 5 to 386 ± 22 mm Hg (mean ± Sl), was reproducible in each patient with each balloon inflation (mean coefficient of variation 7.8%) and correlated with concurrent echocardiographic measurements of ejection fraction (r = 0.89, p = 0.0001) and mass/volume ratio in systole (r = 0.91, p = 0.0001) or diastole (r = 0.88, p = 0.0001). Thirteen patients with class II or more severe congestive heart failure had lower values for peak left ventricular pressure than did those without failure (225 ± 46 versus 305 ± 45 mm Hg, p = 0.002), whereas no difference in rest left ventricular systolic pressure was seen between the two groups. The measurement of peak left ventricular pressure was inversely ...
This study evaluated the mechanism of valvular area expansion during single- and double-balloon valvuloplasty in fibrotic and calcific mitral valves. Special interest was focused on the morphological features of the valves treated. Mitral valves that appeared unsuitable for commissurotomy were excised in toto at the time of mitral valve replacement in 15 patients. The excised valves were mounted in a fluid-filled chamber with a window for photographic evaluation. The chamber was perfused continuously to ensure maximal valvular opening. The valve was photographed, and the orifice area was measured before and after balloon expansion. In addition, the specimens were examined macroscopically and radiographically with regard to calcium content and degree and localization of fibrosis. These data were correlated with splitting of commissures and with rupture of leaflets. Nine valves were fibrotic, and six were calcific. Dilatation was performed first with a single-balloon catheter (diameter, 2 cm) and ...

After the procedure, you may be taken to the recovery room for observation or returned to your hospital room. You will remain flat in bed for several hours after the procedure. A nurse will monitor your vital signs, the insertion site, and circulation and sensation in the affected leg or arm.. You should immediately inform your nurse if you feel any chest pain or tightness, or any other pain, as well as any feelings of warmth, bleeding, or pain at the insertion site in your leg or arm.. Bedrest may vary from two to six hours depending on your specific condition. If your doctor placed a closure device, your bedrest may be of shorter duration.. In some cases, the sheath or introducer may be left in the insertion site. If so, the period of bedrest will be prolonged until the sheath is removed. After the sheath is removed, you may be given a light meal.. You may be given pain medication for pain or discomfort related to the insertion site or having to lie flat and still for a prolonged ...
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 ...
New conduction defects develop in as many as one-third of patients undergoing surgical replacement of the aortic valve, with LBBB being the most common abnormality (18-20). After TAVI, new conduction defects have been described in an even significantly higher number of patients, with new LBBB being the predominant new conduction defect (7-11,21-24). The anatomic neighborhood of the aortic valve to the atrioventricular bundle; degeneration of the conduction system; trauma by guidewires, catheters, and pre-implantation balloon valvuloplasty; and direct constant pressure of the implanted valve on the left bundle branch at the base of the interleaflet triangle between the right and noncoronary triangle are the potential causes (25). The frequency of new LBBB has been reported to be higher after implantation of the CoreValve prosthesis as compared with the Edwards SAPIEN prosthesis (24). This has been explained by the larger size of the CoreValve prosthesis and, in particular, the greater depth of ...

To analyze our experience with percutaneous aortic balloon valvuloplasty in newborn infants with aortic stenosis, emphasizing the extraordinary importance of myocardial perfusion. Over a 10-year-period, 21 neonates underwent percutaneous aortic balloon valvuloplasty. Age ranged from 2 to 27 days, weight ranged from 2.2 to 4.1 kg and 19 were males. All patients presented with congestive heart failure that could not be treated clinically. The onset of symptoms in the first week of life occurred in 9 patients considered as having critical aortic stenosis. Severe aortic stenosis occurred in 12 patients with the onset of symptoms in the second week of life. Mortality reached 100% in the patients with critical aortic stenosis. The procedure was considered effective in the 12 patients with severe aortic stenosis. Vascular complications included the loss of pulse in 12 patients and rupture of the femoral artery in 2 patients. Cardiac complications included acute aortic regurgitation in 2 patients and ...
