Common heart condition linked to sudden death

University of Adelaide

A University of Adelaide-led team of researchers has found a link between sudden cardiac death (when the heart suddenly stops beating) and a common heart condition known as mitral valve prolapse that affects around 12 in every 1000 people worldwide.

Limited Conclusions Can be Drawn from Study on Limiting Antithrombotic Therapy Beyond One Year for Stent Patients with Atrial Fibrillation

Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF)

The first randomized trial of its kind was unable to establish non-inferiority of oral anticoagulation (OAC) alone to combined OAC and a single antiplatelet agent (APT) in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and stable coronary artery disease beyond one year after stent implantation.

NIRS-IVUS Detects Patients and Plaques Vulnerable to Subsequent Adverse Coronary Events

Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF)

Results from the Lipid-Rich Plaque (LRP) study demonstrate the correlation between the presence of non-flow-limiting, non-intervened upon, lipid-rich plaques detected by NIRS-IVUS imaging and the development of a major adverse cardiac event (MACE) from a de novo culprit lesion at both the patient level (vulnerable patients) and segment level (vulnerable plaques) within 24 months post intravascular imaging.

Multicenter Study Finds IVUS-Guided Drug-Eluting Stent Implantation Improves Clinical Outcomes in All-Comer Patients

Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF)

The first study designed to determine the benefits of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) guidance over angiography guidance during drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation in all-comer patients found that IVUS improved clinical outcomes by lowering the rate of target vessel failure at one year.

Transcatheter Device Used to Treat Secondary Mitral Valve Regurgitation in Heart Failure Patients Reduces Hospitalizations, Enhances Quality of Life, and Improves Survival

Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF)

Data presented today from the randomized COAPT trial, which have the potential to significantly change current clinical practice, found that patients with heart failure and secondary mitral regurgitation (MR) who remained symptomatic despite maximally tolerated medical therapy demonstrated reduced rates of hospitalizations and death, as well as improved quality-of-life and functional capacity after being treated with the transcatheter MitraClip device.

Study Finds Similar Outcomes with Two Different Valve Types as well as Similar Outcomes with Anesthesia Types during Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement

Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF)

The first randomized study to compare general versus local anesthesia during transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) in patients with intermediate to high surgical risk found local anesthesia to be both safe and effective. In addition, the study found that a current generation balloon-expandable valve had similar outcomes to a current generation self-expanding one.

Minimally Invasive Procedure Significantly Improved Outcomes for Heart Failure Patients with Mitral Regurgitation

New York-Presbyterian Hospital

A multicenter clinical trial has found that a minimally invasive procedure called transcatheter mitral valve repair significantly reduced hospitalizations and mortality for heart failure patients with moderate-to-severe or severe functional mitral regurgitation.

Novel Drug-Eluting Stent with Improved Radiographic Visibility Found to Be Safe and Effective

Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF)

This first randomized clinical study of a polymer-coated zotarolimus-eluting stent (Resolute Onyx) that utilizes a novel thin-strutted metallic platform allowing for better x-ray visibility was shown to be non-inferior to an ultrathin-strutted bioresorbable polymer-coated sirolimus-eluting stent (Orsiro) that uses a cobalt-chromium strut platform.
