BACKGROUND After synthesis by cardiomyocytes, precursor proBNP1-108 is cleaved into NT-proBNP and BNP. Recently, cross-reactivity between these assays was discussed. The aim of this study was to characterize the cross-reactivities, through a new biochemical innovative approach consisting in the total depletion of the circulating proBNP1-108 in patients with(More)
UNLABELLED PURPOSE AND MEDICAL HYPOTHESIS: Rest is usually recommended in acute pericarditis, as it could help to lower heart rate (HR) and contribute to limit "mechanical inflammation". Whether HR on admission could be correlated and perhaps participate to inflammation has not been reported. METHODS Between March 2007 and February 2010, we conducted a(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether vascular and bleeding complications may be reduced with balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV) performed without heparin. BACKGROUND Vascular and bleeding complications are currently the main adverse events occurring after BAV. METHODS This registry included 162 consecutive patients with severe aortic stenosis who underwent(More)
Candida pericarditis is a rare disease described mainly in immunodepressed patients. Here we report the case of a 76-year-old immunocompetent woman who developed a purulent pericarditis 48 hours after pericardiocentesis. Usual etiologies such as cancer or pericardo-oesophageal fistula, were ruled out. Physical examination revealed a sub-mammary mycosis,(More)
BACKGROUND The benefits of vascular closure devices (VCDs) in the prevention of vascular complications after femoral intervention remain controversial. AIM To evaluate the efficiency of collagen plug-based VCDs in the prevention of femoral access complications after balloon aortic valvuloplasty. METHODS We conducted a prospective analysis of consecutive(More)
Admission to the intensive care unit (ICU) is a standard of care after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI); however, the improvement of the procedure and the need to minimize the unnecessary use of medical resources call into question this strategy. We evaluated prospectively 177 consecutive patients who underwent TAVI. Low-risk patients,(More)
