Reverse Cardiac Remodeling after Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement in Patients with Low-Flow Low-Gradient Aortic Stenosis, Differences between Self-Expandable and Balloon-Expandable Valves

Ruri Ishibashi, Yusuke Watanabe, Akihisa Kataoka, Hirofumi Hioki, Hideyuki Kawashima, Ken Kozuma, Fumiaki Yashima, Shinichi Shirai, Norio Tada, et al.

Objective: To investigate reverse cardiac remodeling in self-expandable valve (SEV) and balloon-expandable valve (BEV) in patients with low-flow, low-gradient aortic stenosis (LFLGAS) who performed transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).

Middle-Term Clinical Outcomes of Transcatheter Edge-to-Edge Repair for Degenerative Mitral Regurgitation: Single-Center Cohort Study

Ryota Watanabe, Hiroto Yagasaki, Yukio Umeda, Toshiyuki Noda

Objective: Transcatheter edge-to-edge repair (TEER) using MitraClip (Abbott, Abbott Park, IL, USA) is a less invasive treatment for patients with mitral regurgitation (MR) than mitral valve surgery. Treatment strategies for degenerative MR tend to be individually influenced by the anatomical characteristics of the lesion and patient background, and the middle- to long-term clinical outcomes of TEER with MitraClips, including the fourth-generation (G4) system, are unclear. This study aimed to evaluate the middle-term clinical outcomes of TEER for degenerative MR based on actual clinical practice.

Transcatheter Tricuspid Valve Intervention: Our Experience and the Current Status in the US

Tadahisa Sugiura, Manaf Assafin, Edwin Ho, Andrea Scotti, Julio Echarte Morales, Mei L. Chau, Azeem Latib

Severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is now widely thought of as a significant contributor to cardiac morbidity and mortality. Neither medical therapy nor conventional surgery is efficacious for most patients. In contrast, with the rapid development of transcatheter tricuspid valve therapies, TR can now be corrected without incurring the risks of conventional surgery, and it is showing promise to improve quality of life and mortality. In this review, we discuss transcatheter tricuspid valve interventions (TTVIs), the current status of clinical trials in the United States, TTVI devices we have used, and our experience.
