Persistent foramen ovale closure in divers with a history of decompression sickness

ObjectiveTo study the effect of percutaneous patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure in divers with a history of decompression sickness (DCS).Study design(1) Retrospective study of patient records and (2) telephonic follow-up. Patients with unexplained decompression sickness, who were referred to a cardiologist with a focus on diving medicine between 2000 and 2017, were included in...

Short versus long duration of dual antiplatelet therapy following drug-eluting stents: a meta-analysis of randomised trials

Netherlands 2 P. R. Stella Background Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) remains the cornerstone therapy in the prevention of ischaemic events following drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation. Mandatory duration

Evaluation of mitral regurgitation by an integrated 2D echocardiographic approach in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement

The purpose of this study was to evaluate mitral regurgitation (MR) severity in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) by standardized assessment of two-dimensional (2D) transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and 1-year echocardiographic and clinical outcomes. Pre- and post-procedural TTE’s of patients undergoing TAVR between 2008 and 2014 were analyzed...

Haemodynamic and functional consequences of the iatrogenic atrial septal defect following Mitraclip therapy

Percutaneous MitraClip placement for treatment of severe mitral regurgitation in high surgical risk patients is a commonly performed procedure and requires a transseptal puncture to reach the left atrium. The resulting iatrogenic atrial septal defect (iASD) is not routinely closed, yet the haemodynamic and functional consequences of a persisting defect are not fully understood...

Effect of body mass index on clinical outcome and all-cause mortality in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation

Objectives To assess the effect of body mass index (BMI) on outcome among patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) admitted for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). Background Being overweight or obese is associated with improved outcome following certain medical treatments, suggesting the existence of a BMI paradox. However, the relationship between BMI and mortality...

Infective complications after transcatheter aortic valve implantation: results from a single centre

K. Onsea P. Agostoni M. Voskuil M. Samim P. R. Stella After its first introduction in 2002, transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has continuously gained more foothold for the treatment of

Elevated mean neutrophil volume represents altered neutrophil composition and reflects damage after myocardial infarction

Myocardial infarction (MI) induces an inflammatory response in which neutrophils fulfill a prominent role. Mean neutrophil volume (MNV) represents the average size of the circulating neutrophil population. Our goal was to determine the effect of MI on MNV and investigate the mechanisms behind MNV elevation. MNV of 84 MI patients was compared with the MNV of 209 stable angina...
