Authors: Kim SH Abstract During the last 10 years, there have been major technological achievements in pediatric interventional cardiology. In addition, there have been several advances in cardiac imaging, especially in 3-dimensional imaging of echocardiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and cineangiography. Therefore, more types of congenital heart diseases can be treated in the cardiac catheter laboratory today than ever before. Furthermore, lesions previously considered resistant to interventional therapies can now be managed with high success rates. The hybrid approach has enabled the ove...

Claret Medical has raised $21.2 million in a new round of equity financing, according to an SEC filing posted this week. The Santa Rosa, Calif.-based company is not seeking to raise any more funds in the round and has not yet stated how it plans to spend the funds it raised. Money in the round came from 35 anonymous investors, according to the SEC filing, with the 1st sale noted on June 22. Earlier this week, Claret Medical released results from a study of its Sentinel cerebral protection system, touting reduced early occurrence of stroke associated with transcatheter aortic valve replacement procedures and lowered mortali...

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is associated with procedural-related neurological events and acute cognitive decline. However, data on the effect of TAVR on mid-term cognitive outcome are scarce. Therefore, we aimed to assess the impact of TAVR on mid-term cognitive outcome using different neurocognitive test batteries.

It was the dream of many cardiac surgeons in the mid 20th century to transplant a healthy heart into a patient dying of end-stage heart disease, but it was in the research laboratories of Dr. Norman Shumway in the Department of Surgery at Stanford University that he and his research fellow, Dr. Richard Lower perfected the surgical procedure and, importantly, demonstrated normal physiological function by the resulting denervated heart which could support normal activity in a canine model. The surgical procedure that they used consisted of a midatrial excision of both left and right atria and excision of the great vessels ju...

AS TRANSCATHETER AORTIC VALVE REPLACEMENT (TAVR) procedures increase in number, anesthetic care has evolved from strictly general anesthesia toward more minimalist approaches, including sedation. The use of sedation for TAVR first was reported in Europe in several case series1,2 and since has spread to the United States.3 In large part, improvements in the many aspects of the procedure have enabled this transition, including advances in device design, smaller delivery systems, increased procedural experience, and extension of TAVR to more robust patients.
