OBJECTIVE: To develop risk scoring models predicting long-term survival and major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events (MACCE) including myocardial infarction and stroke after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). METHODS: All-consecutive 4,821 patients undergoing isolated CABG at Lankenau between 01/2005-07/2021 were included. MACCE was defined as all-cause mortality+myocardial infarction (MI)+stroke. Variable selection for both outcomes was obtained using a double selection logit Lasso with adaptive selection...

Development of functional tricuspid regurgitation (TR) due to chronic mitral disease and subsequent heart failure is common. However, the effect of TR on clinical outcomes following transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) remains unclear. We aimed to evaluate the impact of baseline TR on outcomes after TMVR. This was a single-center retrospective analysis of patients who received valve-in-valve or valve-in-ring TMVR between 2012 and 2022. Patients were categorized into none/mild TR and moderate/severe TR based on baseline echocardiography...

Cardiogenic shock after acute myocardial infarction (AMI-CS) carries significant mortality despite advances in revascularization and mechanical circulatory support. We sought to identify process-based and structural characteristics of centers with lower mortality in AMI-CS. We analyzed 16,337 AMI-CS cases across 440 centers enrolled in the Chest Pain-MI Registry, a retrospective cohort database, between January 1, 2015, and December 31, 2018. Centers were stratified across tertiles of risk-adjusted in-hospital mortality rate (RAMR) for comparison...

Patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) commonly experience non-home discharge (NHD), a phenomenon associated with increased health-care expenditure and possibly poorer outcomes. Despite its clinical relevance in TAVI, the incidence and predictors of NHD and its impact on quality of life remain poorly characterised. Also unknown is the proportion of TAVI patients that require long-term residential care following initial NHD. Therefore, we aimed to address these questions using a large and multi-centre Australian cohort...

This study evaluated nationwide associations between concomitant left atrial appendage clip (LAAC) placement during cardiac surgery and postoperative outcomes. We identified 1,260,999 patients who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting, valve, and aortic surgeries in the 2016-2020 Nationwide Readmissions Database and stratified by concomitant LAAC versus no-LAAC placement. Patients who underwent surgical ablation were excluded. Mortality and complications were compared during index admissions and for patients readmitted within 30 and 90 days of the index discharge date for unmatched and propensity score matched (PSM) groups...

A strategy of complete revascularization (CR) is recommended in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and multivessel disease (MVD). However, the optimal timing of CR remains equivocal. We searched MEDLINE, Embase, the Cochrane Library, and ClinicalTrials.gov for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing immediate CR (ICR) with staged CR (SCR) in patients with ACS and MVD. Our primary outcomes were all-cause and cardiovascular mortality. All outcomes were assessed at three time points: in-hospital or at 30 days, at 6 months-1 year, and at > 1 year...

In acute coronary syndromes (ACS), revascularization is the standard of care. However, trials comparing contemporary coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) are limited. Optimal revascularization in patients with multi-vessel coronary artery disease (MV-CAD) presenting with ACS is unclear. This is a multi-centred, retrospective observational study from a large, hospital system in the United States. We abstracted data on patients with MV-CAD and ACS from 2018 to 2022 who underwent revascularization with PCI, CABG or medically managed (MM)...

Alain Cribier, born on January 25, 1945, in Paris, France, spent his formative years in the city where he received his primary education at Charlemagne Lycée. From a young age, he harbored a strong ambition to enter the field of medicine inspired by the literary works of novelist physicians. Motivated by his deep-seated commitment to saving lives, he pioneered the first-ever aortic valvuloplasty in 1985 at the University of Rouen. Although the initial outcomes exceeded expectations, the occurrence of restenosis in these patients underscored the necessity for a more effective therapeutic solution...

Transcatheter tricuspid valve intervention (TTVI) has recently emerged as a promising alternative to surgery for tricuspid regurgitation (TR). However, a significant proportion of patients fail screening for TTVI, and little is known about their characteristics and natural history. This study sought to investigate causes of screen failure and outcomes of patients declined for TTVI. This was a retrospective single-center study of 32 patients who were ineligible for participation in TTV replacement (TTVR) and tricuspid transcatheter edge-to-edge repair (T-TEER) trials...

Patients formerly diagnosed with unstable angina (UA) are being reclassified as non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) with the widespread adoption of sensitive troponin assays (hsTn), leading to significant changes in the incidence and prognosis of UA. The main purpose of this study was to evaluate the value of hsTn and the presence of significant obstructive CAD in the risk stratification of patients with unstable angina. We conducted a retrospective, single-centre study of 742 patients hospitalized for UA between 2016-2021...

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is associated with impaired blood flow in the lower extremities and histopathological changes of the skeletal calf muscles resulting in abnormal microvascular perfusion. We studied the use of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) to differentiate PAD patients from matched controls by utilizing perfusion pattern features from contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (CE-MRI) of the skeletal calf muscles. We acquired CE-MRI based skeletal calf muscle perfusion in 56 individuals (36 PAD patients, 20 matched controls)...

On 7/31/2023, the Trifecta valve was withdrawn from the market following concerns regarding early (≤ 5 years) structural valve deterioration (SVD) mainly as aortic regurgitation (AR). Our aim was to determine the timing, mechanism, and impact of bioprosthetic SVD in patients undergoing redo aortic valve replacement (Redo-AVR) with either redo-SAVR or valve in valve transcatheter aortic valve replacement (ViV-TAVR), in Trifecta versus other bioprosthetic valves. Patients who underwent Redo-AVR for SVD at our institution were categorized into two groups based on valve type: Trifecta vs non-Trifecta...

Elderly patients have been remarkably under-represented in bleeding risk cohorts. Thus, the PRECISE-DAPT and ARC-HBR scores are not validated in older adults. Therefore, we sought to evaluate the PRECISE-DAPT and ARC-HBR scores in an exclusively elderly population and furthermore assess the prognostic value of a truly simplified clinical evaluation (SCE), consisting of only 3 binary clinical variables (hemoglobin <11g/dL, prior bleeding and anticipated use of anticoagulants). This is a retrospective analysis of the prospective single-center Elderly-HCD registry...

We aimed to correlate left atrial appendage (LAA) structure and function with the history of stroke/transient ischemic attack (TIA) in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). We analyzed data of 649 patients with AF who were scheduled for catheter ablation. Patients underwent cardiac CT and transesophageal echocardiography prior to ablation. LAA morphologies depicted by cardiac CT were categorized into four groups: cauliflower, chicken wing, swan and windsock shapes. Mean age was 61.3±10.5 years, 33.9% were female...
