Abstract Background Multidetector computed tomography is vital in preoperative sizing for transcatheter aortic valve replacement. The purpose of this study is to determine whether preoperative transcatheter aortic valve replacement multidetector computed tomography accurately predicts surgical aortic valve prosthesis size. Methods Between July 2012 and July 2017, 102 patients who underwent surgical aortic valve replacement had preoperative aortic valve sizing by multidetector computed tomography...

Background and Importance: A significant reduction in cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality is related to aggressive management of modifiable CVD risk factors. Therefore, patients at increased risk for CVD should not only benefit from standard pharmacotherapy but also from counseling regarding lifestyle behavioral changes. Objective: To determine the patient factors that influence provision of cardiovascular risk reduction counseling from physicians, as well as the frequencies of counseling. De...

s S271 Purpose: Extended criteria donor lungs are increasingly used for transplantation. The arterial partial pressure of oxygen of donors at organ offer is widely regarded as an important marker for the quality and transplantability of the lung. More precise, a PaO2/FiO2 300 mmHg. Methods: 464 consecutive lung transplantations performed at our centre between April 2010 and October 2013 were analyzed. Outcome parameters included overall survival, hospital mortality and correlation of duration of...

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is not only one of the most widespread chronic illness in the United States, but is also the leading cause of morbidity and mortality. While age, sex and ethnic background may influence ability to lower CVD risk, risk modification may also be the function of differences

Background: Vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) mediates the adhesion of monocytes to vascular endothelium, which play a role in the development of endothelial dysfunction and atherosclerosis. Flow-mediation dilation (FMD) is an endothelium-dependent response, which is mediated by nitric oxide and closely related to endothelial function. The purpose of the study was to test whether levels of VCAM-1 were associated the endothelial-dependent (FMD) in normotensive African Americans. Normoten...

Heart transplantation has evolved as the “gold standard” therapy, with median survival exceeding 10 years, for patients with endstage heart failure (HF). Advancements in the fields of immunosuppression, infection prophylaxis, and surgical techniques have transformed heart transplantation from what was once considered an experimental intervention into a routine treatment. The number of heart transplants reported to the International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation registry worldwide has...

Background: African Americans tend to have greater carotid intima-media thickness (IMT), and are 60% more likely to have a stroke than Caucasians. Data on the effects of lifestyle intervention on carotid IMT in African Americans does not exist. The aim of our study was to assess the efficacy of 6 months of diet and exercise intervention on carotid IMT in sedentary African American adults. Methods: Nineteen African American subjects (15F/4M, 52 ± 6yrs) who were sedentary, non smoking, non diabeti...

Background: High dietary sodium (Na) intake has been shown to be related to the development of endothelial dysfunction and hypertension. Urinary sodium excretion in people with normal renal function can indirectly reflect the level of dietary sodium intake. The purpose of the study was to test whether high urine Na excretion was independent from other risk factors and related to the compromised endothelial-dependent (fiow-mediated dilation [FMD]) and/or endothelium-independent (nitroglycerin-ind...
