Background: Transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR) could improve survival in functional mitral regurgitation (FMR), but it is necessary to consider the influence of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). Therefore, we compare the outcomes after TMVR with Mitraclip® between two groups according to LVEF. Methods: In an observational registry study, we compared the outcomes in patients with FMR who underwent TMVR with and without LVEF 30% (group 2) had similar propensity scores and were inclu...

A 71-year-old woman with previous mechanical mitral valve implantation and tricuspid annuloplasty was admitted for transcatheter aortic valve replacement for symptomatic severe aortic stenosis. Multidetector computed tomography showed a large and elliptic aortic annulus with an estimated

Abstract Background Coronary Aneurysms are a focal dilatation of an artery segment >1.5-fold the normal size of adjacent segments. Although some series have suggested a prevalence of 0.3–12%, data are lacking. In addition, they are not mentioned in practice guidelines. Our aim was investigate its prevalence, management and long-term outcomes. Methods and results The coronary artery aneurysm registry (CAAR) involved 32 hospitals across 9 countries in America and Europe. We reviewed 436,467 consec...

Resumen Introduccion y objetivos El desarrollo tardio de insuficiencia tricuspide funcional tras cirugia valvular izquierda de origen reumatico es un importante predictor de mal pronostico. Este estudio investiga la utilidad y precision diagnostica del area tricuspide evaluada por ecocardiografia transtoracica tridimensional en comparacion con el diametro bidimensional (D2D) convencional para evaluar la dilatacion significativa del anillo tricuspide, proporcionando puntos de corte que podrian ut...
Abstract Introduction and objectives Late functional tricuspid regurgitation after rheumatic left-sided valve surgery is an important predictor of poor prognosis. This study investigated the usefulness and accuracy of 3-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography tricuspid area compared with conventional 2-dimensional diameter (2DD) for assessing significant tricuspid annulus dilatation, providing cutoff values that could be used in clinical practice to improve patient selection for surgery. Meth...

Abstract Objective Data on long-term outcomes after internal mammary artery (IMA) coronary graft failure are scarce. Our objective was to describe the clinical characteristics, management, and prognosis after angiographically confirmed IMA graft failure following coronary revascularization. Methods A three-hospital retrospective registry, observational and descriptive, with prospective follow-up of all consecutive cases of IMA graft failure between 2004 and 2014 was conducted. After treatment, c...

INTRODUCTION: The quantitative measurement of the left ventricle by echocardiography is a fundamental tool in the diagnosis and prognosis of acquired and congenital diseases in the pediatric population. The objective of this study was to validate an automated three-dimensional adaptive analytic echocardiographic algorithm, the so-called Heart Model® (HM) in the pediatric population, using as comparators the left atrial and left ventricular volumes and left ventricular ejection fraction obtained ...

BACKGROUND: Prosthesis-patient mismatch (PPM) after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) remains an important issue. The aim of this study was to assess the value of a new discongruence index, to predict PPM after TAVR.Methods and Results: A total of 185 patients with severe aortic stenosis who underwent TAVR with the Edwards Sapien prosthesis or CoreValve Revalving system were included (Edwards valve, n=119; Core Valve Revalving system, n=66). Discongruence index was calculated pre-pro...
