Authors: Saito Y, Erik E L, Raval A, Gimelli G, Kurt M J, Osaki S Abstract Objective Aortic stenosis (AS) is common among elderly patients. Since transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a less invasive procedure than surgical aortic valve replacement for symptomatic severe AS, super-elderly patients have tended to undergo TAVR. We retrospectively investigated the post-TAVR outcome in super-elderly patients with severe AS. Methods This analysis included 433 patients who underwent TAVR in the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics from 2012 to 2017. Post-TAVR mortality, complications in-hospital, rehos...

Authors: Erbel R Abstract The progress in cardiology during the last 50 years can best be studied by looking at the diagnostics and treatment of patients with aortic valve stenosis. Previously, the clinical examination, electrocardiography (ECG) and chest X‑ray were used before heart catheterization, which included a transseptal puncture to complete the indications for surgery in young patients. Nowadays, echocardiography, often combined with a dobutamine stress test, is the primary diagnostic tool to which computed tomography for quantification of valve calcification and cardiac magnetic resonance...
