MR Improves in Half of Low-Flow/Low-Gradient AS Patients Undergoing TAVR – TCTMD

Posted: February 15, 2020 at 12:46 am

Most patients with low-flow/low-gradient aortic stenosis (AS) have some form of mitral regurgitation (MR), but transcatheter aortic valve replacement improves MR in roughly half of this group, according to a new analysis of the TOPAS-TAVI registry. For those who do not see an improvement in MR following TAVR, however, there is a significantly increased risk of all-cause and cardiac mortality, as well as rehospitalization for cardiac causes, at 1 year when compared with patients who had an improvement in MR. Its a complex population, said senior investigator Josep Rods-Cabau, MD (Quebec Heart & Lung Institute/Laval University, Quebec City, Canada), referring to patients with low-flow/low-gradient AS and MR.

Advancing an oral drug for pulmonary arterial hypertension – Penn: Office of University Communications

Posted: at 12:46 am

In pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), high blood pressure in the lungs arteries causes the heart to work extra hard to pump blood to the lungs and around the rest of the body. The condition is rare but deadly, and current treatments are expensive and have side effects and inconvenient modes of delivery. Continue reading

Personalized Medicine for AFib: How Electric Activity in the Heart Can Predict Individual Progression of Atrial Fibrillation – DocWire News

Posted: December 28, 2019 at 7:41 am

A new observational study published in Europace suggests it is possible to monitor and predict individual progression of atrial fibrillation (AFib) using pacemakers or defibrillators. Atrial electrical remodeling (AER) is a transitional period associated with the progression and long-term maintenance of AFib, the authors explained. We aimed to study the progression of AER in individual patients with implantable devices and AFib episodes. Continue reading
