ConclusionBoth TTR ‐ and AL‐CA can accompany severe AS. Parameters solely based on ECG and echocardiography allow for the identification of the majority of CA‐AS. In the present cohort, CA did not significantly worsen prognosis 15.3 months after TAVR.

Pre-operative myocardial fibrosis and remodeling impact on outcomes after aortic valve replacement (AVR). We aimed at investigating the prognostic impact of preoperative electrocardiographic (ECG) markers of left ventricular (LV) myocardial damage, i.e. bundle branch block (BBB) and ECG strain pattern after (surgical or transcatheter) AVR for severe aortic stenosis (AS).

The ACURATE neo transcatheter heart valve has been associated with very low rates of new conduction disorders (CDs). We assessed the clinical relevance of new CDs in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) with this valve. Data of consecutive patients without a pre-existing left bundle branch block (LBBB) or a permanent pacemaker (PPM) undergoing TAVR with the ACURATE neo were analyzed from the prospective SwissTAVI registry. Patients with new CDs were compared to patients with an unchanged electrocardiogram (ECG).

AbstractIntroductionTranscatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has been established as an alternative to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) for high-risk patients. To assess the impact of TAVI on cardiac repolarization, we compared QT dispersion (QTD) and the interval from the peak to the end of the T wave (Tpeak –Tend: TpTe) between the patients who underwent TAVI and those who underwent SAVR and TpTe between the patients who underwent TAVI or SAVR.MethodsThis retrospective study was approved by the ethics committee of Dokkyo Medical University Hospital. The study included 45 patients who underwent TAVI an...

CONCLUSION: Cardiac involvement is frequent in MPS. Mitral valve deformation is the most frequent finding. An echocardiographic examination should be performed periodically even if the patient has no clinical signs of cardiac disease, and any cardiac involvement should be kept under control with medical treatment.

CONCLUSIONS: A higher MFR score is associated with reduced LV reverse remodeling at one-year follow-up, whereas the MFR score does not appear to interfere with long-term mortality after TAVR. PMID: 31532394 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractTrans-catheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has been recognized as a useful treatment for patients with severe aortic valve stenosis, particularly those with moderate to high risks of open heart surgery. A thorough evaluation of the aortic valve complex, including the size or presence of calcifications of the leaflets and annulus, is important for the selection of appropriate candidates, artificial valve types and approach. Echocardiography is useful for the precise evaluation of aortic valve stenosis severity and aortic valve complex morphology, but it is not useful to evaluate three-dimensional aortic valve a...
