Concomitant Surgical Atrial Fibrillation Ablation in Double Valve Replacement

Persistent AF was defined as AF lasting more than 7 days and long-standing persistent AF as continuous AF for more than 12 months. Concomitant surgical AF ablation was offered to suitable patients as determined by the surgeon, and patients then decided whether to undergo the additional procedure. The operations were ...

Phase N/A

Heart Failure and Aortic Stenosis Transcriptome

The investigators will collect plasma and cardiac tissue specimens from consenting subjects. The investigators will evaluate the expression of mRNAs, miRNAs and lncRNAs in patients affected by both end-stage and not end-stage HF as well as in patients affected by aortic stenosis and undergoing valve replacement and requiring cardiac myectomy. ...

Phase N/A

Influence of a Rehabilitation in Valve Replacement on Heart Rate Variability and Oxidative Stress

The valve disorders are a special group of heart diseases with long period without clinical manifestations, when there is the appearance of symptoms, the patient is a likely candidate for surgery. In many surgical complications can occur, including the respiratory cause and immobility in bed culminating in the need for ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Transcatheter Versus Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement in Younger Low Surgical Risk Patients With Severe Aortic Stenosis

BACKGROUND: Acquired aortic valve stenosis (AS) is the most common heart valve disease in the Western World with a prevalence of 2-7% at the age of >65 years. If untreated, it may lead to heart failure and death. Surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) until recent years has been the definitive ...

Phase N/A

Prevalence and Post-surgical Outcomes of CARdiac Wild-type TransthyrEtin amyloidoSIs in Elderly Patients With Aortic steNosis Referred for Valvular Replacement.

Cardiovascular diseases remain the major cause of mortality and morbidity in industrialised countries. Their prevalence increases steeply as consequence of the aging of the population in these countries. Curiously, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases share common aging pathological pathways involving abnormal accumulation of insoluble amyloid proteins in the extracellular matrix disrupting ...

Phase N/A

Saint Luc Valve Registry

With this prospective registry, all patients with aortic stenosis, mitral and aortic regurgitation will be followed. We will find followed patients not yet operated or until surgery, but also patient after surgery according to the presence or abscence of guidelines criteria. It will permit to compare different kind of management ...

Phase N/A

Myocardial Characterization of Arrhythmogenic Mitral Valve Prolapse (STAMP: STretch and Myocardial Characterization in Arrhythmogenic Mitral Valve Prolapse)

Mitral valve prolapse (MVP) is a frequent affection of the mitral valve or its sub-valvular apparatus with a prevalence of 2-3% in the general population. This valvular disease is generally considered as benign, but may at term evolve toward mitral valve regurgitation of various severity and/or arrhythmia. Mitral valve prolapse ...

Phase N/A

BIOVALVE - I / II Clincial Investigation

In a non-randomized, prospective, multi-center clinical investigation, approximately 86 eligible subjects will be enrolled. Phase 1: BIOVALVE-I feasibility clinical investigation: Approximately 13 eligible subjects will be enrolled. Phase 2: BIOVALVE-II pilot clinical investigation: Approximately 73 eligible subjects will be enrolled. BIOVALVE-I/II subjects follow the same clinical investigation plan (CIP) in ...

Phase N/A

Incidence of Significant Mitral Regurgitation in Acute Heart Failure Patients

All patients admitted with symptoms of HF- (shortness of breath (SOB), peripheral oedema, palpitations and irregular heart beats) will be assessed by the Research Team. The level of BNP will be checked using a small device (i-STAT BNP) at the bedside. If results of the test suggest HF they will ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of a Rivaroxaban-based Strategy With an Antiplatelet-based Strategy Following Successful TAVR for the Prevention of Leaflet Thickening and Reduced Leaflet Motion as Evaluated by Four-dimensional Volume-rendered Computed Tomography (4DCT)

BACKGROUND: Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has become an established therapeutic option for patients with symptomatic, severe aortic valve stenosis, who are ineligible or at high risk for conventional surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR). It was recently reported that leaflet thickening and reduced leaflet motion, verified by four-dimensional computed tomography ...
