BACKGROUND Transcatheter aortic-valve implantation (TAVI) is an emerging intervention for the treatment of high-risk patients with severe aortic stenosis and coexisting illnesses. We report the results of a prospective multicenter study of the French national transcatheter aortic-valve implantation registry, FRANCE 2. METHODS All TAVIs performed in(More)
From March 1992 through March 1995 we have performed 45 Ross procedures for total aortic root replacement in our institution. There were 32 males and 13 females with a mean age of 31 years (range: 3-49 years). Indications for surgery were: aortic stenosis (n = 20), aortic regurgitation (n = 16), native valve endocarditis (n = 6), replacement of prosthetic(More)
Gluteal aneurysms, whether true or false, are exceptional. They represent less than 1% of all aneurysms and develop within the superior or inferior gluteal arteries, being branches of the internal iliac artery. We report here the case of a 35-year-old patient with Marfan syndrome in whom annuloaortic ectasia and Barlow's disease with mitral valve(More)
We report here a case of concomitant aortic and tricuspid valve endocarditis occurring in a 26-year-old woman 2 weeks after she had given birth by cesarean delivery. Preoperative transthoracic echocardiography revealed a previously undetected aorta-right atrium fistula, which at operation appeared to be congenital in origin. Surgical treatment consisted of(More)
BACKGROUND Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has revolutionized management of high-risk patients with severe aortic stenosis. However, survival and the incidence of severe complications have been assessed in relatively small populations and/or with limited follow-up. OBJECTIVES This report details late clinical outcome and its determinants in(More)
A 60-year-old man was admitted at his local hospital for persistent chest pain and suspicion of aortic dissection. No evidence of aortic dissection or intimal disruption was noted by means of computed tomography and transesophageal echocardiography. A localized intramural hematoma of the ascending aorta was found. He was first treated medically and remained(More)
Results: 59 consecutive patients included between 1997 and 2011, mean age=65±10,i schemic disease in 41 (70%),heart failure symptoms in all, LVEF= 36±6%,ERO=41±17 mm2.Surgical procedures included 12UA and 47 MVR with only 8 (13%)concomitant CABG. MVR and UA groups were comparable for age, ischemic etiology, LVEF, ERO and sPAP (all p>0.5).Inhospital(More)
