In current practice, PVL closure is accomplished by retrograde wiring of the defect followed by delivery of catheters and retrograde extrusion of the device. Delivery of equipment can be challenging in TAVR because of interaction with the valve stent…
Transcatheter tricuspid valve-in-valve replacement via right internal jugular is safe and feasible for failed bioprosthetic valve implantation. Challenging aspects include stiff wire advancement into the pulmonary artery for rail establishment and mu…
An 85-year-old, symptomatic man qualified for MitraClip procedure. TEE and electrocardiography documented acute hemodynamic changes throughout the procedure.
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of this specific complication using the Manta closure device, highlighting the importance of accurate device positioning before collagen deployment.
We present a patient with severe TR who underwent transcatheter tricuspid valve repair (TTVR) using the MitraClip system, with the development of LR shunt through an iatrogenic ASD. Provisional occlusion of ASD after TTVR should be considered in pati…
This is the first reported case of suprannular atrially placed mitral paravalvular leak closure.
Acute kidney injury (AKI) post TAVI is associated with worsened outcomes. We identify significant baseline predictors of AKI and established a high-risk subgroup within patients enrolled in the multicenter SWISS-TAVI cohort.
The predictive value of EuroScore II, logistic EuroScore, and STS score for patients undergoing TAVI is still unclear. We evaluated these three scores as predictors of short-term and long-term mortality in patients undergoing TAVI.
Our objective was to compare TAVR outcomes in end-stage renal disease patients with a cohort of non-ESRD patients.
Our objective was to assess the safety and efficacy of the FAST protocol, which is a new, simplified procedure for transfemoral TAVR.
