Sep 14th, 2021 - Mitral annular disjunction (MAD) dynamic consequences on the mitral apparatus and the left ventricle (LV) remain unclear and are crucial in the context of mitral surgery. Thus, we aimed to assess mitral valvular/annular/ventricular dynamics in mit...

Sep 12th, 2021 - Mitral-annular disjunction (MAD) is an abnormal insertion of the hinge line of posterior mitral leaflet on the atrial wall: the mitral annulus shows a separation or "disjunction" between the leaflet-atrial wall junction and the "crest" of LV myoca...

Mar 28th, 2017 - Teen years, no doubt, come with expected challenges. For teens with Down syndrome (DS), the challenges are exponentially greater.
Feb 2nd, 2017 - Atrial flutter may be a sequela of open heart surgery. After cardiac surgery, atrial flutter may be reentrant as a result of natural barriers, atrial incisions, and scar. Some patients develop atypical left atrial flutter after pulmonary vein isol...
Dec 2nd, 2016 - Time to End Antibiotic Prophylaxis for Infective Endocarditis? Introduction During my emergency medicine training in the early 1990s, antibiotic prophylaxis for infective endocarditis (IE) was routine for many types of patients before undergoing a...
Oct 5th, 2016 - Uneven MitraClip placement did not increase leaflet stress, making it unlikely to be complicit in mitral regurgitation recurrence, according to a computer model. Having more posterior than anterior leaflet tissue clipped by the device still eased ...
