Joint Position Paper of the Working Group of Pacing and Electrophysiology of the French Society of Cardiology and the French Society of Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiac and Vascular Imaging on magnetic resonance imaging in patients with cardiac electronic implantable devices.
Boveda S, Working Group of Pacing, Electrophysiology of the French Society of Cardiology, the French Society of Diagnostic, Interventional Cardiac, Vascular Imaging Abstract Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become the reference imaging technique for the management of a large number of diseases. The number of MRI examinations increases every year, simultaneously with the number of patients receiving a cardiac electronic implantable device (CEID). The presence of a CEID was considered an absolute contraindication for MRI for many years. The progressive replacement of conventional pacemakers and defibrillators by...

Evaluation of length of stay after transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve implantation with SAPIEN 3 prosthesis: A French multicentre prospective observational trial.

Many hypotheses might explain this phenomenon, but we feel it is time raise the alarm about the risk for patients presenting with acute cardiovascular disease, who may suffer from lack of attention, leading to severe consequences (an increase in the number of ambulatory myocardial infarctions, mechanical complications of myocardial infarction leading to an increase in the number of cardiac arrests, unexplained deaths, heart failure, etc.).

Subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator indication in prevention of sudden cardiac death in difficult clinical situations: A French expert position paper.

The use of an implantable cardioverter defibrillator to prevent sudden cardiac death is now a widely proven technique, with a clear statement of its indication in the guidelines. More recently, a subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator has been introduced, and appears to be an attractive technique as it removes the need to implant a lead inside the right ventricle to treat the patient, which should dramatically decrease the risk of complications over time. Currently, only ...

Trials of mechanical circulatory support with percutaneous axial flow pumps in cardiogenic shock complicating acute myocardial infarction: Mission impossible?
Abstract Cardiogenic shock is a complex clinical entity associated with very high mortality and intensive resource utilization. Despite the widespread use of timely reperfusion and appropriate pharmacotherapy, the survival rate remains at around 50%. Recently, percutaneous axial flow pumps have been integrated into the therapeutic spectrum of cardiogenic shock management. However, most of the literature supporting their use stems from observational studies. To date, attempts to perform randomized controlled trials with percutaneous axial flow pumps have failed. This underlines the challenge of performing a well-co...

Durability of transcatheter aortic valve implantation: A translational review.

The updated 2017 European Society of Cardiology Guidelines has widened the indication to include intermediate-risk patients, based on two recently published trials (PARTNER 2 and SURTAVI). Moreover, two other recent trials (PARTNER 3 and EVOLUT LOW RISK) have demonstrated similar results with transcatheter aortic valve implantation in low-risk patients. Thus, extension of transcatheter aortic valve implantation to younger patients, who are currently treated by surgical aortic valve replacemen...

Abstract Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has emerged as the treatment of choice for patients with severe aortic stenosis deemed at high or intermediate risk for cardiac surgery. In light of the latest literature advances, TAVR will undoubtedly concern a growing number of patients because of the progressive extension of its indications. Whereas significant efforts have been made to reduce the burden of periprocedural complications, TAVR still exposes patients to a sizeable number of adverse outcomes, including thrombotic and bleeding events. Although contradictory, these two phenomena are closely rela...

Excitation-contraction coupling and relaxation alteration in right ventricular remodelling caused by pulmonary arterial hypertension.
Abstract Pulmonary arterial hypertension is a progressive and lethal cardiopulmonary disease. The rise in right ventricular afterload leads to right ventricular hypertrophy and failure. Right ventricular failure is the most important prognostic factor for morbidity and mortality in pulmonary arterial hypertension or pulmonary hypertension caused by left heart diseases. Surprisingly, the right ventricle is not targeted by pulmonary arterial hypertension-specific therapies. The current profound lack of basic understanding of pulmonary arterial hypertension-related right ventricular remodelling can explain, at least ...

Giant coronary aneurysms, from diagnosis to treatment: A literature review.
Abstract Coronary aneurysms are classically defined as a segment of the artery in which dilation exceeds the diameter of an adjacent portion (considered as a reference point) by more than 1.5times. In rare instances, coronary artery aneurysms are large enough to be called giant coronary artery aneurysms, which have been reported as occurring with an incidence of 0.02%. However, there is no clear consensus on how giant coronary artery aneurysms should be defined, and their aetiology is not entirely clear; many causes have been suggested, with atherosclerosis being the most common among adults, accounting for up to ...

Analysis of weather exposure 7 days before occurrence of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction.
CONCLUSIONS: In this specific geographical area, occurrence of STEMI was statistically associated with a decrease in air temperature, an increase in atmospheric pressure and an increase in humidity over the preceding 7-day period.

In-hospital outcomes and 5-year mortality following an acute myocardial infarction in patients with a history of cancer: Results from the French registry on Acute ST-elevation or non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (FAST-MI) 2005 cohort.
CONCLUSION: A history of cancer, per se, does not appear to be a risk factor for increased in-hospital mortality or long-term cardiovascular mortality in patients admitted for AMI. PMID: 31761740 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Archives of Cardiovascular Diseases)

Incidence of, risk factors for and impact of readmission for heart failure after successful transcatheter aortic valve implantation.
CONCLUSIONS: Readmission for heart failure occurs in one in 10 patients after successful TAVI, and is a strong risk factor for mortality. Co-morbidities and left ventricular ejection fraction after TAVI≤35% are the main risk factors for readmission for heart failure.
