[Guidelines on the management of valvular heart disease (version 2012). The Joint Task Force on the Management of Valvular Heart Disease of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the European
TLDR
Authors/Task Force Members: Alec Vahanian (Chairperson) (France)*, Ottavio Alfieri (Chair person)* (Italy), Felicita Andreotti ( Italy), Manuel J. Antunes (Portugal) and Jose Luis Zamorano (Spain). Expand
Guidelines for the management of atrial fibrillation: the Task Force for the Management of Atrial Fibrillation of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).
TLDR
Estimates of expected health outcomes for larger societies are included, where data exist, and the level of evidence and the strength of recommendation of particular treatment options are weighed and graded according to pre-defined scales. Expand
Guidelines on the management of valvular heart disease (version 2012).
TLDR
Guidelines summarize and evaluate all evidence available on a particular issue with the aim of assisting physicians in selecting the best management strategies for an individual patient with a given condition, taking into account the impact on outcome. Expand
Transcatheter valve implantation for patients with aortic stenosis: a position statement from the European Association of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (EACTS) and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC),
TLDR
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation is a promising technique, which may offer an alternative to conventional surgery for high-risk patients with aorta stenosis and may be extended to lower risk patients if the initial promise holds to be true after careful evaluation. Expand
The Myoblast Autologous Grafting in Ischemic Cardiomyopathy (MAGIC) Trial: First Randomized Placebo-Controlled Study of Myoblast Transplantation
TLDR
Myoblast injections combined with coronary surgery in patients with depressed LV function failed to improve echocardiographic heart function and the increased number of early postoperative arrhythmic events after myoblast transplantation warrants further investigation. Expand
Atrial Electroanatomic Remodeling After Circumferential Radiofrequency Pulmonary Vein Ablation: Efficacy of an Anatomic Approach in a Large Cohort of Patients With Atrial Fibrillation
TLDR
Circumferential radiofrequency ablation around pulmonary vein (PV) ostia is a safe and effective treatment for atrial fibrillation, likely due to both PV trigger isolation and electroanatomic remodeling of the area encompassing the PV ostia. Expand
Pulmonary Vein Denervation Enhances Long-Term Benefit After Circumferential Ablation for Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation
TLDR
It is suggested that adjunctive CVD during CPVA significantly reduces recurrence of AF at 12 months, particularly in patients with reflexes and CVD, who were less likely to have recurrent AF than those without reflexes. Expand
Atrio-Esophageal Fistula as a Complication of Percutaneous Transcatheter Ablation of Atrial Fibrillation
TLDR
Atrio-esophageal fistulas can occur after catheter ablation in the posterior wall of the left atrium after radiofrequency ablation for atrial fibrillation, and this diagnosis should be excluded in any patient with symptoms or signs of endocarditis after left atrial ablation. Expand
