BACKGROUND Isolated tricuspid valve surgery is associated with high morbidity and mortality, especially in patients with prior cardiac surgery. The transcatheter Forma Repair System (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, California) is designed to provide a surface for native leaflet coaptation to reduce tricuspid regurgitation (TR) by occupying the regurgitant(More)
OBJECTIVES The study sought to examine the risk of ischemic events and bleeding episodes associated with differing antithrombotic strategies in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) with concomitant atrial fibrillation (AF). BACKGROUND Guidelines recommend antiplatelet therapy (APT) post-TAVR to reduce the risk of stroke.(More)
BACKGROUND Scarce data exist on the incidence of and factors associated with valve hemodynamic deterioration (VHD) after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). OBJECTIVES This study sought to determine the incidence, timing, and predictors of VHD in a large cohort of patients undergoing TAVR. METHODS This multicenter registry included 1,521(More)
BACKGROUND In patients with heart failure, interventions to reduce elevated left atrial pressure improve symptoms and reduce the risk of hospital admission. We aimed to assess the safety and potential efficacy of therapeutic left-to-right interatrial shunting in patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction. METHODS We did this(More)
Native valve infective endocarditis (IE) in patients with normal valves has increased in the last decades. Whether patients with normal valves present a similar prognosis to those with pathologic valves is unresolved. Our aim is to describe epidemiologic and clinical differences between patients with left-sided IE and normal valves and those with native(More)
Bioprosthetic valve use has increased significantly. Considering their limited durability, there will remain an ongoing clinical need for repairing or replacing these prostheses in the future. The current standard of care for treating bioprosthetic valve degeneration involves redo open-heart surgery. However, repeat cardiac surgery may be associated with(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine the incidence, causes, and predictors of unplanned hospital readmissions after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). BACKGROUND Data regarding unplanned hospital readmissions after TAVR in a real-world all-comers population are scarce. METHODS A total of 720 consecutive patients undergoing TAVR(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Despite the rapid global uptake of transcatheter aortic valve implantation, valve trombosis has yet to be systematically evaluated in this field. The aim of this study was to determine the clinical characteristics, diagnostic criteria, and treatment outcomes of patients diagnosed with valve thrombosis following transcatheter(More)
BACKGROUND There are scarce data available on transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR), and these have been limited to procedural results, with no follow-up status reported. OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to evaluate the feasibility, procedural results, and 6-month follow-up outcomes after TMVR with a mitral transcatheter heart valve (Fortis,(More)
BACKGROUND Identifying transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) patients at high risk for cerebrovascular events (CVE) is of major clinical relevance. However, predictors have varied across studies. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to analyze the predictors of 30-day CVE post-TAVR. METHODS A systematic review of studies that reported the(More)
