Non-invasive Characterization of the Mechanisms of Atrial Fibrillation Maintenance

Dec 14th, 2021 - The MAIN GOAL of this project is to clinically validate the technology for the noninvasive identification of the mechanisms responsible for maintenance of AF by body surface electrical mapping. To achieve this goal, noninvasive mapping of the atri...

Three Dimensional Versus Two Dimensional Echocardiography in Assessment of Severity and Scoring of Rheumatic Mitral Stenosis.

Jul 20th, 2021 - Although the prevalence of rheumatic fever is decreasing in developed countries, it still affects numerous areas in the non- industrialized world. Untreated mitral stenosis (MS) contributes significantly to global morbidity and mortality. Echocard...

Degenerative Mitral Regurgitation in Intermediate Risk Patients

Apr 1st, 2021 - Severe mitral regurgitation is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Mitral valve surgical repair has proven to be an effective and durable option in the treatment of symptomatic degenerative mitral regurgitation (MR). Echocardiogra...

Development of an Algorithm to Differentiate Heart Murmurs Using Electronic Stethoscopes

Mar 23rd, 2021 - Valvular heart disease (VHD), a subclass of structural heart disease (SHD), is a major cause of mortality and reduced quality of life for tens of millions of patients worldwide. Detecting VHD early allows the disease to be carefully monitored so t...

Incidence of Residual Tricuspid Regurgitation in Patients Undergoing Left-heart Surgery

Nov 30th, 2020 - Functional tricuspid regurgitation (TR) was defined as TR occurring secondary to left heart, especially mitral valve stenosis or pulmonary disease. Previous study reported that about 30% - 50% of patients with significant mitral stenosis developed...

Post-MitraClip Gradients Not So Dangerous After All

Apr 19th, 2021 - Patients with secondary mitral regurgitation (MR) who were left with high gradients after a MitraClip procedure were not inherently at a disadvantage in their subsequent clinical outcomes, according to a COAPT analysis. MitraClip-treated trial par...

NICE Draft Guidance on Management of Heart Valve Disease

Mar 19th, 2021 - The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has published a draft guideline on the management of heart valve disease in adults. Here is a summary of the key recommendations: Referral Consider echocardiogram for adults with murmur ...

Valvular AFib Heightens Risk in TAVR

Sep 29th, 2020 - Atrial fibrillation has been known to confer an increased risk for poor outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve replacement, but there's been no evidence of how the etiology of AFib can influence post-TAVR outcomes. Now, a group of researchers f...

'Low-Risk' Valvular AF in Some May be Risky Enough for Oral Anticoagulation

Sep 11th, 2020 - Some patients with "valvular" atrial fibrillation (AF) and stroke-risk scores low enough for oral anticoagulation (OAC) not to be indicated may actually face enough thromboembolic risk to justify the lifelong therapy, a new report suggests. The co...
