OBJECTIVE To describe differences in intra- and postoperative care between general (GA) and local/regional anesthesia (LRA) in consecutive high-risk patients with aortic stenosis who underwent transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). DESIGN A retrospective review of data collected in an institutional registry. SETTING An academic(More)
AIMS To assess patient characteristics, therapeutic options, and their results in patients referred to a tertiary centre with on-site capabilities for surgical and percutaneous valvular interventions for the management of severe symptomatic aortic stenosis (AS). METHODS AND RESULTS Sixty-six consecutive patients >70 years (83 +/- 6 years) were referred(More)
Little is known about transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) in patients with bicuspid aortic valve stenosis, which usually represents a contraindication. The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility and the results of TAVI in this patient subset. Of 316 high-risk patients with severe aortic stenosis who underwent TAVI from January 2009 to(More)
OBJECTIVES This study sought to evaluate the feasibility of transfemoral transcatheter heart valve (THV) implantation in failed mitral bioprostheses and ring annuloplasties. BACKGROUND Redo mitral surgery may be high risk or contraindicated due to comorbidity. THV implantation has been recently reported in this setting. METHODS Transfemoral implantation(More)
BACKGROUND To provide anesthesia for cardiac surgery, hypnotics and opioids are frequently titrated on variables such as mean arterial pressure and heart rate. In this study conducted in patients scheduled to undergo coronary artery bypass grafting, propofol and sufentanil, both administered by computer-controlled infusion, were titrated on the Bispectral(More)
UNLABELLED Renal dysfunction is a frequent and severe complication after conventional hypothermic cardiac surgery. Little is known about this complication when cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is performed under normothermic conditions (e.g., more than 36 degrees C). Thus, we prospectively studied 649 consecutive patients undergoing coronary artery bypass(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare patients undergoing valve surgery through a minithoracotomy approach with a matched group undergoing conventional valve surgery. DESIGN Control study. SETTING University hospital, single center. PARTICIPANTS Forty-one consecutive patients scheduled for valve surgery by minithoracotomy approach were matched with a similar group of(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe, from the point of view of anesthesia and intensive care specialists, the perioperative management of high-risk patients with aortic stenosis who underwent transcatheter (transfemoral and transapical) aortic valve implantation (TAVI). The authors specifically focused on immediate postoperative complications. DESIGN Retrospective(More)
