Transcatheter aortic valve replacement for patients with severe bicuspid aortic stenosis
ConclusionsThis initial experience suggests TAVR can be safely performed in patients with BAV achieving similar short-term procedural and clinical outcomes when compared with patients with TAV.Condensed AbstractThe outcomes of 50 patients (8.8%) with bicuspid aortic stenosis (BAV) undergoing TAVR were compared with those of 517 patients (91.2%) with trileaflet aortic valve (TAV) stenosis. Patients with BAV were younger, had higher prevalence of COPD, lower prevalence of CAD, higher BMI and lower STS score. Major complications were similar between the groups, including stroke (2.0% vs. 1.5, P = .567), 30-day all-c...

Identification and Management of Ischemic Stroke in the Postanesthesia Care Unit
This report details the case of a 63-year-old male experiencing a stroke in the immediate postoperative period after total knee arthroplasty. Risk for perioperative stroke is influenced by age, sex, ethnicity, comorbidities, and some medications. The depressed neurocognitive state of patients recovering from anesthesia warrants special consideration for the identification and management of perioperative stroke.

Neck circumference and cardiovascular outcomes: Insights from the Jackson heart study
ConclusionsIn this large cohort of African American individuals, a larger NC was associated with increased risk for HF hospitalization following adjustment for age and sex, but this risk was not statistically significant after adjusting for other clinical variables. Although NC is not independently associated with increased risk for cardiovascular events, it may offer prognostic information particularly related to HF hospitalization.

Risk Prediction Model for Major Adverse Outcome in Proximal Thoracic Aortic Surgery
ConclusionsThe current study identified risk factors for major adverse outcome after proximal thoracic aortic surgery with hypothermic circulatory arrest for degenerative pathology. The proposed simple, accurate model can quantify risk and facilitate physician-patient counseling before possible surgical intervention.

Differences in statin utilization and lipid lowering by race, ethnicity, and HIV status in a real-world cohort of persons with human immunodeficiency virus and uninfected persons
ConclusionsAmong PWH with statin indication(s), blacks and Hispanics were less likely than whites to have been prescribed a statin. These racial/ethnic disparities were less pronounced among uninfected persons. There were significant differences in type of statin used for PWH compared to uninfected matched controls. Future efforts addressing disparities in CVD prevention among PWH are warranted.

Salvage Coronary Artery Bypass Predicts Increased Mortality During Aortic Root Operation
ConclusionsCABG-R results in increased postoperative morbidity or mortality compared with isolated ROOT. Outcomes, however, are influenced by the specific clinical indication. CABG for coronary artery disease was associated with similar outcomes compared with isolated ROOT. Patients undergoing unplanned CABG for acute ventricular failure had the worst outcomes, thus underscoring the importance of technical success during coronary reimplantation.

Outcomes of Planned Two-Stage Hybrid Aortic Repair With Dacron-Replaced Proximal Landing Zone
ConclusionsPlanned two-stage HAR with open first-stage proximal aortic replacement, followed by second-stage TEVAR with Dacron-replaced PLZ yields excellent short-term and long-term results, including low rates of reintervention likely due to the long-segment PLZ within the Dacron-replaced aorta. The technique should be considered in patients with even mild (>4.0 cm) ascending aortic dilation in whom HAR is otherwise the preferred treatment option.

Genome-wide Study of Atrial Fibrillation Identifies Seven Risk Loci and Highlights Biological Pathways and Regulatory Elements Involved in Cardiac Development
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common cardiac arrhythmia and a major risk factor for stroke, heart failure, and premature death. The pathogenesis of AF remains poorly understood, which contributes to the current lack of highly effective treatments. To understand the genetic variation and biology underlying AF, we undertook a genome-wide association study (GWAS) of 6,337 AF individuals and 61,607 AF-free individuals from Norway, including replication in an additional 30,679 AF individuals and 278,895 AF-free individuals.

Relation of Carotid Intima-Media Thickness to Cardiovascular Events in Black Americans (From the Jackson Heart Study)
Although several prospective studies have reported independent relationships between carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) and risk of incident cardiovascular diseases (CVD) among primarily non-African American (AA) cohorts, the utility of CIMT values for the prediction of incident coronary heart disease and stroke events in blacks remain unclear. At the baseline examination (2000 –2004) of the Jackson Heart Study (JHS), AA adults 21-94 years of age (mean 54) underwent bilateral far-wall CIMT measurement (mean 0.76 mm).

Krause, Annette D. de Kloet, Eduardo Candelario-Jalil, Colin Sumners Activation of the angiotensin II type 2 receptor (AT2R) by administration of Compound 21 (C21), a selective AT2R agonist, induces neuroprotection in models of ischemic stroke in young adult animals. The mechanisms of this neuroprotective action are varied, and may include direct and indirect effec ts of AT2R activation. Our objectives were to assess the...

Inclusion of Pulmonary Embolism Response in a Level I Vascular Emergency Program: A Good Fit in a Collaborative, Multidisciplinary System
The value of a systematic approach for assessment and management of life and limb threatening emergencies has been demonstrated by the success of organized trauma centers, stroke centers, and STEMI programs throughout the United States. Recognizing the applicability of a standardized care process to vascular emergencies, Dr. Michael Dalsing of Indiana University –Methodist Hospital led his academic faculty and hospital in the development of a statewide referral and rapid response system for vascular emergencies in 2009.

Factors associated with stroke in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation beyond CHADS2 score.
CONCLUSIONS: Elevated E velocity, E/E' and SD of tA-SR were associated with occurrence of stroke in patients with PAF even with similar CHAD scores. Increased SD of tA-SR and E/E' were independently associated with stroke in patients with PAF. PMID: 27296157 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
