The researchers’ goal was to define the prevalence of mitral annular disjunction and examine its association with cardiovascular outcomes and arrhythmia among patients with Marfan syndrome.
Aortic stenosis is a condition in which the opening of the aortic valve narrows, restricting blood flow from the heart to the rest of the body. The American Heart Association estimates that over 20% of older Americans have aortic stenosis, referring to it as a condition “common in people over age 65.”¹ Despite its prevalence,…
The researchers sought to describe tricuspid valve morphology and assess its impact on procedural results and clinical outcomes in edge-to-edge transcatheter tricuspid valve repair.
No difference seen across mitral valve gradient quartiles for two-year composite end point of all-cause mortality, heart failure hospitalization.
Investigators sought to determine whether fluroquinolone use increased the risk for poor clinical outcomes and death in a cohort of patients with aortic dissection or aortic aneurysm.
Researchers sought to assess the association of large abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) diameter with late outcomes in patients undergoing open and endovascular AAA repair.
Nonagenarians should not be excluded from endovascular aortic repair surgeries based on age alone, but they should undergo a carefully balanced risk assessment.
The researchers’ goals included determining how postoperative residual pulmonary hypertension was related to longitudinal mortality in patients with severe mitral regurgitation who had mitral valve surgery.
Acute CRAO is a medical emergency and patients should be immediately triaged to an emergency department.
However, anticoagulation cuts risk for major thromboembolic events by 46 percent
