TLDR
Degenerative aetiologies were the most frequent in aortic VHD and mitral regurgitation while most cases of mitral stenosis were of rheumatic origin. Expand

Management of acute myocardial infarction in patients presenting with ST-segment elevation. The Task Force on the Management of Acute Myocardial Infarction of the European Society of Cardiology.
TLDR
The initial diagnosis of acute myocar-dial infarction is made because the pain is associ-ated with sympathetic activation which causesvasoconstriction and increases the workload of theheart. Expand

TLDR
Guidelines summarize and evaluate all evidence available on a particular issue with the aim of assisting physicians in selecting the best management strategies for an individual patient with a given condition, taking into account the impact on outcome. Expand
Bivalirudin and provisional glycoprotein IIb/IIIa blockade compared with heparin and planned glycoprotein IIb/IIIa blockade during percutaneous coronary intervention: REPLACE-2 randomized trial.
TLDR
Bivalirudin with provisional Gp IIb/IIIa blockade is statistically not inferior to heparin plus planned Gp IIIa blockade during contemporary PCI with regard to suppression of acute ischemic end points and is associated with less bleeding. Expand
Multimodal assessment of the aortic annulus diameter: implications for transcatheter aortic valve implantation.
TLDR
In patients referred for TAVI, measurements of the aortic annulus using TTE, TEE, and MSCT were close but not identical, and the method used has important potential clinical implications on TAVi strategy. Expand
Decision-making in elderly patients with severe aortic stenosis: why are so many denied surgery?
TLDR
Surgery was denied in 33% of elderly patients with severe, symptomatic AS, and older age and LV dysfunction were the most striking characteristics of patients who were denied surgery, whereas comorbidity played a less important role. Expand
