OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to develop and validate a simple calculator to quantify the embolic risk (ER) at admission of patients with infective endocarditis. BACKGROUND Early valve surgery reduces the incidence of embolism in high-risk patients with endocarditis, but the quantification of ER remains challenging. METHODS From 1,022 consecutive(More)
We report a case of valve-in-valve (ViV) implantation by transfemoral approach with a 23-mm balloon-expandable prosthesis inside a stentless 19-mm acutely degenerated bioprosthesis, using a strategy of "extreme" underfilling. A 74-year-old patient presented to our institution in cardiogenic shock. An initial transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) showed(More)
Everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) have emerged as an alternative to conventional metallic stents and have demonstrated favorable outcomes in simple coronary lesions. As the use of BVS increases and extends to more complex lesion subsets, intraprocedural complications are expected to occur. We describe for the first time the(More)

BACKGROUND After the approval of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) for high-risk or inoperable patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS), many low- and moderate-volume TAVR programs were initiated. Contemporary outcomes from these newly initiated centres remain unknown. METHODS In March 2013, our institution was authorized by the Québec(More)
