Bleeding is a known predictor of poor outcome after a number of cardiac interventions. We investigated whether using the new bleeding definition of the Valve Academic Research Consortium predicts a poor outcome after transcatheter aortic valve implantation. In addition, we sought to identify those patient characteristics that predict periprocedural bleeding(More)
Metabolic, biochemical and biomechanical differences between ankle and knee joint cartilage and chondrocytes including resistance to the effects of catabolic cytokines and fibronectin fragments may be relevant to differences in prevalence of OA in these joints. Although there is increasing information available on how chondrocytes from knee and hip joint(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the current study was to identify predictors of paraprosthetic aortic regurgitation (AR) after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) and examine its influence on short/medium-term mortality using the UK TAVI Registry. TAVI is an effective treatment for high-risk patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis (AS), but(More)
BACKGROUND Current guidelines only recommend the use of an implantable cardioverter defibrillator in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy for the primary prevention of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in those with a left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) <35%. However, registries of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests demonstrate that 70% to 80% of such patients(More)
BACKGROUND Oesophageal cancer is a major clinical problem with a generally poor prognosis. As a result there has been interest in combining surgery with neoadjuvant chemotherapy to try and improve outcomes, although the current evidence for benefit is inconsistent. We aimed to compare, in a non-randomised study, the post-operative complication rate and(More)
