New ESC/EACTS Guidelines for the management of Valvular Heart Disease (VHD)
31 Aug 2017
The new joint ESC/EACTS guidelines for the management of valvular heart disease have been hotly anticipated, with extended indications for transcutaneous aortic valve implantation (TAVI) widely tipped to be the star of the show. In comparison to 2012, where data from two randomized control trials assessing TAVI were available, outcome data from nearly six thousand patients across six randomized trials were available to the 2017 guideline writing committee. Therefore, the major challenge for this guideline was to assimilate this data and make it applicable in realworld clinical practice. In that regard, this new document has evolved beyond simple ‘guidance’ and now introduces new ‘concepts of care’ for patients with valvular heart disease.

PFO closure reduces recurrent strokes – a therapeutic promise is finally kept
22 May 2017
In patients with a patent foramen ovale (PFO) and cryptogenic stroke, percutaneous closure of the PFO has long been postulated to reduce the rate of recurrent strokes. However, up until now, trial data has failed to convincingly deliver a message of benefit for such an approach. Although the wait has been long, two recently reported trials finally seem to deliver on the therapeutic promise of PFO closure.
