Impact of frailty scores on outcome of octogenarian patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation
Background For selected patients with symptomatic aortic stenosis, transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is an alternative to surgical aortic valve replacement (AVR). In addition to… Expand
Time course of release of inflammatory markers after coronary stenting: comparison between bare metal stent and sirolimus-eluting stent

Transcatheter left atrial appendage closure for stroke prevention in atrial fi brillation with Amplatzer cardiac plug: the Belgian Registry
Aims The aim of the present study was to evaluate the procedural feasibility, the safety and the 1-year outcome following left atrial appendage (LAA) closure using the Amplatzer cardiac plug (ACP) in… Expand
Midterm clinical outcome following Edwards SAPIEN or Medtronic Corevalve transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI): Results of the Belgian TAVI registry

To assess midterm (3 years) clinical outcomes of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) in Belgium using the Edwards SAPIEN valve or the Medtronic CoreValve transcatheter heart valve (THV).
Mid-term survival after transcatheter aortic valve implantation: Results with respect to the anesthetic management and to the access route (transfemoral versus transapical)
Context: Several studies have analyzed the long-term survival after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). However, no previous studies have looked at survival beyond 1-year with respect to… Expand
Aortopulmonary Fistula after Multiple Pulmonary Artery Stenting and Dilatation for Postarterial Switch Supravalvular Stenosis
We present a case of iatrogenic aortopulmonary fistula following pulmonary artery (PA) stenting late after arterial switch operation (ASO) for D-transposition of the great arteries (D-TGA), an… Expand
