Safety and efficacy of the MitraClip® system for severe mitral regurgitation
The MitraClip® system is a newer percutaneous device that has shown promising results but data on its safety and efficacy in low‐ and high‐surgical risk populations continues to evolve. We performedExpand

Ischemic post-conditioning and vasodilator therapy during standard cardiopulmonary resuscitation to reduce cardiac and brain injury after prolonged untreated ventricular fibrillation.
AIM OF THE STUDY We investigated the effects of ischemic postconditioning (IPC) with and without cardioprotective vasodilatory therapy (CVT) at the initiation of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)Expand

Morbidity and Mortality Associated With Balloon Aortic Valvuloplasty: A National Perspective
Background— The introduction of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) led to renewed interest in balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV). We sought to assess contemporary trends in BAV utilizationExpand

Early coronary revascularization improves 24h survival and neurological function after ischemic cardiac arrest. A randomized animal study.
BACKGROUND Survival after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) remains poor. Acute coronary obstruction is a major cause of OHCA. We hypothesize that early coronary reperfusion will improveExpand

Transcatheter and Surgical Management of Mitral Paravalvular Leak: Long-Term Outcomes.
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to report the use trends and immediate and long-term outcomes of a large cohort of patients who underwent redo surgery or transcatheter repair of paravalvularExpand

Ischemic postconditioning at the initiation of cardiopulmonary resuscitation facilitates functional cardiac and cerebral recovery after prolonged untreated ventricular fibrillation.
OBJECTIVES Ischemic postconditioning (PC) with "stuttering" reintroduction of blood flow after prolonged ischemia has been shown to offer protection from ischemia reperfusion injury to the myocardiumExpand

Techniques and Outcomes of Percutaneous Aortic Paravalvular Leak Closure.
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study is to provide a summary of the currently applied aortic paravalvular leak (PVL) closure techniques and describe the procedural and long-term outcomes in a largeExpand

Bundled postconditioning therapies improve hemodynamics and neurologic recovery after 17 min of untreated cardiac arrest.
OBJECTIVE Ischemic postconditioning (stutter CPR) and sevoflurane have been shown to mitigate the effects of reperfusion injury in cardiac tissue after 15min of ventricular fibrillation (VF) cardiacExpand

Thiazolidinedione Drugs Promote Onset, Alter Characteristics, and Increase Mortality of Ischemic Ventricular Fibrillation in Pigs
PurposeDespite favorable metabolic and vascular effects, thiazolidinedione (TZD) drugs have not convincingly reduced cardiovascular mortality in clinical trials, raising the possibility ofExpand
