Preoperative Computed Tomography Scan Analysis of Interleaflets Triangles to Guide Aortic Root Repair Procedures.

CONCLUSIONS: Based on experience acquired in the operating room, the acute-angle subcommissural triangles were considered normal, the equilateral triangles mildly dilated, and the obtuse triangles severely dilated. According to this classification, different reparative approaches were selected. A CTscan 3D reconstruction method, as validated by the present data, allows a preoperative evaluation of the triangles and VAJ in order to best plan a surgical reparative approach tailored to a single patient.

AbstractThe diagnosis of cardiac disorders using heart sounds is one of the hottest topics in recent years. In general, diagnosing in the early stage is usually performed using routine auscultation examination using a stethoscope which requires human interpretation. Recording of heart sounds using an electronic microphone embedded inside the stethoscope provides a digital recording which is known as a phonocardiogram (PCG). This PCG signal carries very informative data about the status of the heart and its valves. Recently, several machines and deep learning techniques employed signal processing to classify heart disorders...

AbstractPurpose of reviewHeart failure remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality despite advances in guideline directed medical and electrophysiologic device therapies. Valvular heart disease (VHD) is common in heart failure patients and independently associated with poor outcomes. This review provides an update in the rapidly evolving field of transcatheter heart valve interventions (THVI) in the management of heart failure.Recent findingsAortic stenosis (AS) may cause or worsen heart failure. Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) and functional tricuspid regurgitation (FTR) occur secondary to heart failure and con...

Conclusion: The results suggest that the recommended cessation of prophylactic antibiotics for the prevention of IE in dentistry has not led to an increased incidence of IE caused by oral streptococci among the Swedish population. PMID: 33014311 [PubMed]

This article discusses the interventional procedures of heart valvular diseases as well as the hemodynamic changes associated with the procedures from the anesthesiologist's point of view. To present examples, we have selected transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and the interventional procedure of mitral and tricuspid valve insufficiency called MitraClip and TricaClip. A thorough examination of the procedural risk rate shows that despite minimizing the surgical intervention by miniaturizing the devices, the presence of an experienced cardiac anesthesiologist is obligatory.

Mechanical heart valves may pose hemodynamic challenges leading to significant heart failure during pregnancy, especially if thrombosis or stenosis occurs. On the other hand, warfarin can have teratogenic effects, and expectant mothers may try to avoid it during pregnancy.
