New-Generation ACURATE Neo2

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a therapeutical option for patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis. Current guidelines recommend TAVR in patients ≥75 years with intermediate risk. One of the most frequent complications of this procedure is moderate or greater aortic regurgitation (AR) after implantation. Consequently, new valves have been developed to try and reduce

Ten Commandments for 2021 Guidelines on Valvular Heart Disease

Since the latest version to the Valvular Heart Disease Guidelines from the European Society of Cardiology, plenty of evidence has been accumulating, finally leading to this updated version.  In this regard, below you will find what has been called “10 commandments” that sum up this new document, to keep you in the loop.  The incidence

More Keys to Define Moderate Aortic Stenosis

Amidst the current efforts to prove early intervention might have benefits in moderate aortic stenosis (AS), this trial comes along directing us back to basics.  In patients with symptomatic aortic stenosis, peaking mortality will clearly justify intervention. But what is the case when there are no symptoms? According to this recent analysis published in JAMA,

New Markers of Aortic Stenosis Define Asymptomatic Patients

Asymptomatic aortic stenosis has been keeping us in tense stillness. However, there are new markers capable of identifying patients that might benefit from earlier intervention. In this regard, cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) has been gaining its well-deserved place in cardiology and now more specifically in aortic stenosis.  This study sought to validate CMR markers of

EuroPCR 2021 | Evolut Low Risk: Two-Year Results of The Self-Expanding Valve in Low-Risk Patients

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) with the Evolut self-expanding valve was non-inferior to surgery in patients with low surgical risk. After two years, the primary endpoint of death or disabling stroke was similar between both strategies. This presentation at EuroPCR 2021 reinforces the results presented during the American College of Cardiology (ACC) 2019 Congress and

Surgeons’ Claim on Low-Risk Patients with Aortic Stenosis

Recent randomized trials including low-risk patients showed positive results for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) compared with surgical aortic valve replacement. However, surgeons argue that these cases fail to consider patients from daily clinical practice, but rather include a population that has been carefully selected for randomized trials. Patients with non-tricuspid aortic stenosis, with severe

Cusp Overlap for Higher CoreValve Implantation

Implant depth greater than the length of the membranous septum is an independent predictor of permanent pacemaker implantation. Valve implantation 3 to 5 mm below the aortic annulus in a projection coaxial to the device is recommended. The problem is this is rarely in the annular plane of the valve. Ideal annular plane projection is

Diastolic Dysfunction and TAVR: Prognosis before and after Procedure

The PARTNER 2 SAPIEN 3 showed baseline diastolic dysfunction is a predictor of clinical events after 2 years of TAVR. As expected, improved diastolic function after procedure immediately changes prognosis.  Though these outcomes did meet our expectations, very few studies have shown hard evidence linking diastolic dysfunction and aortic stenosis.  All patients included in the

New Valvular Heart Disease Guidelines with Key TAVI and Mitral Regurgitation Updates

Valvular heart disease management guidelines were updated last week by the AHA and the ACC.  The last complete version had been published in 2014; therefore many of its recommendations have become obsolete before the latest evidence.  The studies that made the FDA approve TAVI for low-risk patients are probably the most important incorporations. They also
