AIMS The paucity of evidences about the long-term durability of currently available transcatheter prostheses is one of the main issues of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). We sought to assess 3-year clinical and echocardiographic outcomes of patients undergoing TAVI with the third generation CoreValve prosthesis (Medtronic Incorporation, MN,(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to measure ankle joint proprioception preceding and following injection of Xylocaine into the anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL). Previous investigators have indicated that the typical inversion ankle sprain causes decreased afferent input from the joint which results in a proprioceptive deficit at the ankle. It was(More)
BACKGROUND Distal unprotected left main coronary artery (ULMCA) stenosis represents a technical challenge for interventional cardiologists. In this study, we compared 2-year clinical outcomes of different stenting strategies in patients with distal ULMCA stenosis treated with drug-eluting stents. METHODS AND RESULTS The survey promoted by the Italian(More)
OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to assess the procedural and 2-year results of the subclavian approach for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) compared with those of the femoral approach by using propensity-matched analysis. BACKGROUND The subclavian approach with the CoreValve prosthesis (Medtronic, Inc., Minneapolis, Minnesota)(More)
BACKGROUND Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is a new option for patients with severe aortic stenosis at high surgical risk. The standard retrograde approach through the femoral artery is contraindicated in case of unfavorable iliofemoral anatomy or extensive disease. In these patients, a trans-subclavian approach may be feasible. METHODS AND(More)
AIMS The aim of the present study was to investigate the changes of left and right ventricular (RV) dimensions and function after MitraClip implantation in high-risk surgical patients with severe functional mitral regurgitation (MR). METHODS AND RESULTS Study population included 35 patients with functional MR. All the patients underwent clinical and(More)
