OBJECTIVE To assess the relation of aortic transvalvular gradient with outcomes following transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). BACKGROUND Relatively little is known about the predictors of adverse outcomes in patients with severe aortic stenosis following TAVI. METHODS We studied 126 consecutive patients (mean age 83.2 ± 6.3 years; 59% women)(More)
Coronary artery aneurysm may cause coronary artery rupture, thromboembolism or haemodynamic problems related to compression. We report the case of a 68-year old man who was referred to an intensive cardiological care unit for recurrence of ventricular tachycardia. Coronary angiography revealed two large aneurysms of the mid-right coronary artery. A(More)
The issue of transcatheter heart valve (THV) thrombosis is a poorly understood emerging entity of great clinical importance. There are now a number of papers describing both clinically apparent and silent THV thrombosis (1). The literature describes a very heterogenous cohort in terms of the timing of presentation (2 days to 24 months); however, the(More)
BACKGROUND TAVI is an alternative solution for patients with aortic valve stenosis (AS) who are refused for conventional surgery. We sought to evaluate the incidence, characteristics, predictors and prognosis impact of serious hemorrhagic complications following transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). METHODS One hundred and seventy one(More)
BACKGROUND The natural history of acute myocarditis (AM) remains highly variable and predictors of outcome are largely unknown. The objectives were to determine the potential value of various cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) parameters for the prediction of adverse long-term outcome in patients presenting with suspected AM. METHODS In a(More)
A 74-year-old man at moderate risk for surgical aortic valve replacement underwent transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) with an Edwards S3 valve (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, California) via the transfemoral route. Past medical history was significant for coronary artery bypass graft surgery. Left ventricular ejection function was normal, and he(More)
