Background Although bariatric surgery has proven beneficial for those with cardiovascular disease (CVD), the overall and procedure-specific risk associated with bariatric surgery in this patient population remains unknown.

Abstract Introduction Initial development of a prominent bariatric surgery mortality risk calculator comprised of cases that now account for less than 10% of commonly performed operations. Whether the previously highly predictive model is valid with more recent data is unknown. Methods The MBSAQIP Participant Use File from years 2015 to 2017 was used for the analysis. C-statistics were calculated with observed death as the outcome and estimated 30-day mortality risk as the only predictor and rec...

Abstract The anatomy and physiology of the right ventricle are unique and need to be considered when planning for left ventricular assist device (LVAD) placement. Many predictive models of right heart failure after LVAD placement are discussed. Several temporary right ventricular assist devices are available, and options for chronic biventricular assist device support is very limited. Delayed right ventricular function and its implications are discussed.

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is approved for treatment of symptomatic aortic stenosis in patients at increased risk for surgical valve replacement, but outcomes data in patients with severe native aortic regurgitation (AR) treated with TAVI remain limited. The objective of this analysis was to evaluate outcomes among patients identified in the Society of Thoracic Surgeons/American College of Cardiology Transcatheter Valve Therapies Registry who underwent TAVI for native AR with...

Introduction Aortic incompetence (AI) is very common complication after continuous flow left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation, and can result in increased symptoms for LVAD patients. Recent advances in Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) technology has resulted in this becoming a potential therapeutic avenue for LVAD patients with AI. We report a case of TAVR implantation in a patient supported with a LVAD complicated by thrombosis. Case Report A 61-year-old female present...
