Correlates of the ratio of acceleration time to ejection time in patients with aortic stenosis: An echocardiographic and computed tomography study.
aux S Abstract BACKGROUND: An increased acceleration time to ejection time (AT/ET) ratio is associated with increased mortality in patients with aortic stenosis (AS). AIM: To identify the factors associated with an increased AT/ET ratio. METHODS: The relationships between the AT/ET ratio and clinical and Doppler echocardiographic variables of interest in the setting of AS were analysed retrospectively in 1107 patients with AS and preserved left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (LVEF). The computed tomography aortic valve calcium (CT-AVC) score was studied in a subgroup of 342 patients. RESULTS: In...

Transcatheter closure of patent foramen ovale to prevent stroke recurrence in patients with otherwise unexplained ischaemic stroke: Expert consensus of the French Neurovascular Society and the French Society of Cardiology.
CONCLUSIONS: Although a big step forward that will benefit many patients has been taken with recent trials, many questions remain unanswered. Pending results from further studies, decision-making regarding management of patients with PFO-associated ischaemic stroke should be based on a close coordination between neurologists/stroke specialists and cardiologists.

Secondary tricuspid regurgitation: Do we understand what we would like to treat?
te;ant P, Donal E Abstract Tricuspid regurgitation has long been a neglected and underestimated entity; its prevalence is significant, and is increasing with the ageing population. Tricuspid regurgitation is often a consequence of chronic left cardiac pathologies or atrial fibrillation. Surgical treatment is recommended for patients with severe symptomatic tricuspid regurgitation or tricuspid annulus dilatation at the time of left heart valve surgery. Secondary tricuspid regurgitation is a complex disease; this review focuses on the need for better understanding of its mechanisms and quantification - man...

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation support in acute circulatory failure: A plea for regulation and better organization.
ton G Abstract Emergent implantation of temporary mechanical circulatory support using venoarterial ECMO (ECLS for extracorporeal Life Support) is increasingly adopted in various indications of acute circulatory failure refractory to optimal medical treatment. To implant such devices, but also to provide appropriate daily management, expertise and adapted technical platform are required.

We propose a dedicated territorial organization to improve and facilitate management of these specific and most severe patients....

Is there still a role for the intra-aortic balloon pump in the management of cardiogenic shock following acute coronary syndrome?
Abstract The intra-aortic balloon pump has been widely used in the management of cardiogenic shock. Reducing cardiac afterload and myocardial oxygen consumption, and improving coronary blood flow, this safe and simple mechanical circulatory support has been considered the cornerstone of cardiogenic shock management for decades. However, because it failed to provide any clinical benefit in recent randomized trials, the latest guidelines discourage its routine use in this clinical setting. Moreover, new percutaneous circulatory supports providing greater haemodynamic improvement have recently been developed. Thus, i...

Pathophysiology and management of combined aortic and mitral regurgitation.
;re D Abstract The combination of aortic and mitral regurgitation is a typical example of a frequent yet understudied multiple valve disease scenario. The aetiology is often rheumatic or degenerative; less frequently it can be induced by drugs or radiation, or caused by infective endocarditis or congenital valvular lesions. Aortic regurgitation resulting in secondary mitral regurgitation is also not uncommon. There are limited data to guide the management of combined aortic and mitral regurgitation. Left ventricular dysfunction is frequent at initial presentation, and even more so postoperatively, suggesting that ...

Why should we extend transcatheter aortic valve implantation to low-risk patients? A comprehensive review.
Abstract Within the past decade, transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has become established as the optimal treatment option for elderly, inoperable and high-risk patients with severe aortic stenosis, and is now recommended by international guidelines. Randomized controlled trials have demonstrated the non-inferiority of TAVI to open surgery in intermediate-risk patients and, most recently, in low-risk patients. Further randomized controlled trials are underway, but existing studies have already provided reassuring data in this cohort, and TAVI is offered routinely to younger and lower-risk patients in n...

Ten-year follow-up of unreplaced Valsalva sinuses after aortic valve replacement in bicuspid aortic valve disease.
CONCLUSIONS: Ascending aorta and Valsalva sinuses seem to have different fates after AVR in BAV disease. When the Valsalva sinuses are not dilated at the initial surgery, the risk of secondary dilatation at 10 years is low. Preservation of the sinuses is therefore justified in patients with BAV with a non-dilated root. In BAV with isolated aortic insufficiency, a more aggressive approach may be justified, especially in young patients.

Cardiovascular research in France: Evolution of scientific activities and production over the last decade.
CONCLUSIONS: France is very well represented in terms of new CVD projects, but actual French scientific production scores poorly. Investing in CVD research is a priority to increase the level of publication and to compete with other leading countries.

Evaluation of neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin and cystatin C as biomarkers of acute kidney injury after ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction treated by percutaneous coronary intervention.
CONCLUSIONS: In this cohort of patients with STEMI treated by primary PCI, plasmatic NGAL and cystatin C did not provide additional value regarding CI-AKI prediction compared with known risk factors such as baseline creatinine.

Safeguarding continuing cardiovascular research excellence and quality publications in France: A working document from the French Society of Cardiology.
CONCLUSIONS: It is possible to maintain, and even increase, the quality of cardiovascular research in France and to boost the conversion of successful projects into high-impact publications, without major increases in funding. Intense collaboration between specialties and organizations is necessary to achieve sustainable results.

Percutaneous coronary interventions with the Absorb Bioresorbable vascular scaffold in real life: 1-year results from the FRANCE ABSORB registry.
CONCLUSIONS: The Absorb BVS was implanted in a relatively young population, half of whom had ACS. Predilatation and postdilatation rates were high, and 1-year outcomes were acceptable. PMID: 30630761 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Archives of Cardiovascular Diseases)
