This is one of a series of statements discussing the use ofGI endoscopy in common clinical situations. The Standards of Practice Committee of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) prepared this text. In preparing this guideline, a search of the medical literature was performed by using PubMed, supplemented by accessing the "related articles" feature of PubMed. Additional references were obtained from the bibliographies of the identified articles and from recommendations of e...

Background: Mitral valve repair is the standard therapy for patients with severe mitral regurgitation. Currently, robotic mitral valve repair is the least invasive surgical approach and an alternative to the traditional sternotomy. Recent studies and newer guidelines on mitral valve repair advocate for earlier referral to surgery, resulting in better long-term outcomes of valve function and decreased left ventricular remodeling. Purpose: Robotic mitral valve repair outcomes were compared with no...

Abstract Background Surgical mitral valve repair (SMVR) remains the gold standard for severe degenerative mitral regurgitation (DMR). However, the results with transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR) in prohibitive-risk DMR patients have not been previously reported. Objectives This study aimed to evaluate treatment of mitral regurgitation (MR) in patients with severe DMR at prohibitive surgical risk undergoing TMVR. Methods A prohibitive-risk DMR cohort was identified by a multidisciplinary he...

Aims There are very few data regarding the assessment and prognostic value of left ventricular contractile reserve (LVCR) in asymptomatic patients with primary mitral regurgitation (MR). We aimed to quantify LVCR and to evaluate its usefulness for risk stratification in asymptomatic patients with primary MR. Methods and results Comprehensive resting and exercise (EX) transthoracic echocardiography, including two-dimensional speckle tracking quantification, were performed in 115 consecutive asymp...

Objective The data on echocardiographic evaluation of mitral durability after rheumatic mitral repair is scarce. Methods A total of 193 patients (mean age, 39.4 ± 12.8 years; 154 females) who underwent mitral valve repair for rheumatic valve disease from 1997 to 2010 were included in the study. A Maze operation was performed in 90.3% (n = 102) of the patients with atrial fibrillation (n = 113). Survival, valve-related complications, and echocardiographic data were evaluated. Results Mitral regur...

Percutaneous mitral commissurotomy (PMC) was one of the first catheter-based therapies for structural heart disease and has now become the treatment of choice for selected patients with rheumatic mitral stenosis. Inoue’s single-balloon technique has become the most popular method for performing PMC in most institutions today. The traditional tools of invasive cardiologist (i.e. fluoroscopy and hemodynamic pressure measurement) are inadequate for this procedure, and transoesophageal echocardiogra...

Background Data are scarce regarding the optimal international normalized ratio (INR) in Thai patients who require warfarin therapy after mechanical mitral valve replacement. Accordingly, the aim of this study was to identify the optimal INR level for warfarin therapy after mechanical mitral valve replacement in Thai patients.

Background Diabetes mellitus (DM) on insulin is a patient-related factor in the assessment of surgical risk based on the EuroSCORE II and, as such, it confers additional risk on outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of diabetes mellitus treated with insulin and oral antidiabetic drugs on clinical outcomes after TAVI.

Background Mitral valve disease is the most common heart valve disease worldwide. Heart valve operation is the predominant treatment strategy for heart valve disease. This study analyzed the death risk from heart valve disease with respect to the frequency of heart valve operation and other operations in patients with mitral valve disease.

Warfarin is the standard of care and NOAC (Novel oral anticoagulants) are a group of newer drugs for such purposes. NOAC has a generally better profile (Clear interaction, less side effect, require less monitoring). However, its efficacy on valvular atrial fibrillation remains unclear. We researched literature articles from Embase, Cochrane and PubMed. Then we meta-analysed these six articles to assess pooled estimate of relative risk (RR) and 95% confidence intervals (Cl) using random-effects m...

Conventional diuretic therapy for low-flow (LF) severe aortic stenosis (SAS) often has an inadequate effect or causes hemodynamic instability. Tolvaptan is used for acute heart failure in addition to conventional diuretics, and it does not cause intravascular dehydration. This study aimed to retrospectively investigate the safety and efficacy of tolvaptan in the acute phase in 56 consecutive patients with SAS and compared LF-SAS with normal-flow (NF) SAS. The primary endpoints were adverse clini...
