Abstract Stroke is a serious complication of non-cardiac surgery. Congenital defects of the interatrial septum may be a potent risk factor for perioperative stroke. The aim of the present study was to determine the association between atrial septal defect (ASD) or patent foramen ovale (PFO) and in-hospital perioperative ischemic stroke after non-cardiac surgery in a large nationwide cohort of patients hospitalized in the United States. Patients undergoing noncardiac surgery between 2004 and 2014...

Abstract This study evaluated the prevalence, anatomical pattern, and prognostic implications of an intramural course of the coronary arteries in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HC). The study population consisted of 92 patients with HC and 100 patients without HC. The presence of an intramural course of the coronary arteries was evaluated by coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA), and its length and depth were measured. During follow-up, the occurrence of unstable angina requ...

Abstract Premenopausal women with macroprolactinemia are characterized by increased cardiometabolic risk. No previous study has investigated the impact of any lipid-lowering agent on circulating levels of cardiometabolic risk factors in patients with elevated macroprolactin content. We studied two groups of women matched for age, body mass index, plasma lipids and blood pressure: 12 women with macroprolactinemia and 14 women with prolactin levels within the reference range. Because of coexistent...

Abstract Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is a known risk factor for non-cardiac surgery due to acute pulmonary exacerbations but its impact after cardiac surgery is not known. We examined perioperative outcomes and risk factors for long-term survival in ILD patients undergoing cardiac surgery. From January 2002 to June 2017, 294 cardiac surgery patients with a prior ILD diagnosis, including 75 patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), were identified. A comparison cohort of 1481 non-ILD...

Abstract Two transcatheter aortic valve systems are currently in use in the United States; balloon-expandable valves (BEV) and the self-expanding valve (SEV). However, comparative data outcomes between the two systems are limited, as only one randomized trial (RCT) performed a head-to-head comparison between BEVs and SEVs. However, there are several RCTs comparing BEV or SEV to surgical valve replacement. In this analysis, we used Bayesian network meta-analysis techniques to compare BEVs and SEV...

ABSTRACT Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) with a bioprosthetic valve of insufficient size is associated with a higher risk of aortic regurgitation (AR). The 31-mm CoreValve and the next generation 34-mm Evolut R bioprostheses were designed to address the need for larger diameter aortic annuli. This analysis examined the clinical and hemodynamic outcomes following commercial TAVI with the 31-mm CoreValve and 34-mm Evolut R in the STS/ACC TVT Registry™. Patients receiving a 31-mm Cor...

Abstract This study examines a national cohort of patients with a diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) for the prevalence of frailty, temporal changes over time, and its association with treatments and clinical outcomes. The National Inpatient Sample database was used to identify U.S. adults with a diagnosis of ACS between 2004 and 2014. Frailty risk was determined using a validated Hospital Frailty Risk Score based on ICD-9 codes using the cutoffs 15 for low (LRS), intermediate (IRS) and ...

Abstract Residual aortic regurgitation (AR) is a major complication after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). While the echocardiographic assessment of post-TAVI AR remains challenging, cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) allows direct quantification of AR. The aim of this study was to review the level of agreement between two-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (2D TTE) and CMR on grading the severity of AR after TAVI, and determine the accuracy of TTE in detecting moderate or s...
