[Partially French Canadians are susceptible to increased cardiovascular risk factors: A population-based retrospective cohort study].
Abstract BACKGROUND: Through various research lead in the past, it has been made evident that Quebec is home to higher rates of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and higher prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors than other Canadian provinces. This proposed study will perform a retrospective analysis on Caucasian populations in order to analyze the cardiovascular risk factors in partially francophone populations in comparison to French and Non-French Canadians. Furthermore, we will closely analyze both genders of aforementioned populations. METHODS: This population-based retrospective cohort study was achie...

A double chamber pacemaker implantation was decided. There is no indication for radiofrequency ablation in the absence of reentry tachycardia and intermittent conduction. Cardiac pacing offers him an electrophysiologically interesting excitation profile with a quasi-synchronous right and left ventricular activation.

Hybrid surgical ablation for persistent or long standing persistent atrial fibrillation: A French single centre experience.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Hybrid ablation for the treatment of atrial fibrillation is a single combined procedure consisting in a minimally thoracoscopic surgical ablation followed by a catheter ablation. This promising technique is recommended in persistent atrial fibrillation according to the current guidelines but is not routinely performed in France, mainly due to the absence of reimbursement by the French National Health Insurance.

This kind of surgery performed during childhood lead often to dysfunctional right ventricular outflow tract (stenosis, leak) in older infants or young adults. In this case, reintervention on the right ventricular outflow tract would be associated with a high surgical risk.

Abstract Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is currently becoming the treatment of choice for patients with calcific aortic stenosis.

These disturbances include the occurrence of left bundle branch block and/or high-grade atrioventricular block often requiring pacemaker implantation. The proximity of the aortic valve to the conduction system (conduction pathways) accounts for the occurrence of these complications. Several factors have been identified as carrying a h...

Quality of acute heart failure treatment in France: Data from REseau Nord-Alpin des Urgences (RENAU).
CONCLUSIONS: The early management of patients with acute pulmonary oedema (as a marker of acute heart failure) in France in 2013 was quite different to recommendations published in 2015. A programme to implement the new recommendations is in place, and a repeat evaluation will be conducted in 2017.

[Differences between hypertension in Metropolitan France compared to Overseas France Departments and Regions (DOM-ROM)].
CONCLUSIONS: There are differences between France Overseas Regions and Territories (DOM-ROMs) and Metropolitan France in terms of the prevalence, knowledge, treatment and control of hypertension, and these vary according to sex. For men, the prevalence and treatment of hypertension differ very little when considering a population of workers or employees in both regions. On the other hand, for women, the prevalence of hypertension is higher in the French Antilles-Guiana. This difference is not fully explained by the higher prevalence of obesity observed among female employees in the French Antilles-Guiana. For these patient...

[Evaluation of the incidence of radiodermatitis lesions in interventional cardiology].
CONCLUSION: Radiodermatitis lesions occur for 4.82% of patients benefiting from procedures with a DAP ≥200Gy cm2. We suggest the establishment of a DAP threshold for dermal monitoring of patients of 200Gy cm2 per procedure instead of 500Gy cm2.

[Fenestration of a spontaneous coronary hematoma with life-threatening dissection: A case of recurrent and multivessel spontaneous coronary artery dissections in a young female].
Abstract The fenestration of a coronary artery hematoma is a therapeutic option in case of a life-threatening spontaneous coronary artery dissection, if the conservative treatment is not feasible. Here we present the case of a 34-year-old woman who presented three spontaneous coronary artery dissections, on three different arteries, over a period of twenty-one months. The diagnosis was confirmed by endovascular imaging. During an acute coronary syndrome, emergent percutaneous coronary intervention of the left anterior descending artery was performed, successfully, by a fenestration of the hematoma, using an AngioS...

[Left main PCI: Current treatment].
te; G Abstract Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of left main coronary artery has become a strong alternative to coronary artery bypass surgery in selected patients. The treatment decision must be validated by the Heart Team. Several PCI techniques of distal left main PCI have been described but the KISSS (Keep it simple, swift and safe) principle recommended by the European Bifurcation Club must be kept in mind. Provisional stenting is the first-line technique. A two-stent strategy may be needed in the presence of≥2.5mm side branch diameter and significant ostial stenosis as well as in presumably diffic...
