Other valvular and structural interventions

Here you will find all the latest content on diverse topics within the theme of other valvular and structural interventions such as paravalvular leak published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.

Understanding and treating complications that might arise in valvular and structural interventions such as paravalvular leak after implantation of prosthetic valves is important. Information on determining the scope of this complication, it’s potential closure, along with other critical topics in this field can be found in this section.

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.

EuroPCR 2017 Highlights: Interventions for Valvular Diseases

20 May 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017

Spotlight on valvular disease at EuroPCR 2017 with N. Piazza, B. Prendergast and A. Latib. In the aortic space, we look at 4-year results from the NOTION trial on valve durability or the REPRISE trial comparing different devices. The mitral space remains exciting with emerging data on a new device allowing edge-to-edge repair or the use of aortic devices in the mitral valve. The tricuspid? From innovation day through the course itself, there is great promise for the future with 3 trials now ongoing in Europe alone. Get your take-home message here...
