    Rate, timing, correlates, and outcomes of hemodynamic valve deterioration after bioprosthetic surgical aortic valve replacement
    (American Heart Association, 2018-08-13) Mahjoub, Haïfa; Rodés-Cabau, Josep; Kalavrouziotis, Dimitri; Voisine, Pierre; Mohammadi, Siamak; Côté, Nancy; Yanagawa, Bobby; Girerd, Nicolas; Pibarot, Philippe; Juni, Peter; Clavel, Marie-Annick; Verma, Subodh; Puri, Rishi; Dagenais, François; Mathieu, Patrick; Salaun, Erwan
    Background: The incidence of structural valve deterioration after bioprosthesis (BP) aortic valve replacement (AVR) established on the basis of reoperation may substantially underestimate the true incidence. The objective is to determine the rate, timing, correlates, and association between hemodynamic valve deterioration (HVD) and outcomes assessed by Doppler echocardiography after surgical BP AVR. Methods: A total of 1387 patients (62.2% male, 70.5±7.8 years of age) who underwent BP AVR were included in this retrospective study. Baseline echocardiography was performed at a median time of 4.1 (1.3–6.5) months after AVR. All patients had an echocardiographic follow-up ≥2 years after AVR (926 at least 5 years and 385 at least 10 years). HVD was defined by Doppler assessment as a ≥10 mm Hg increase in mean gradient or worsening of transprosthetic regurgitation ≥1/3 class. HVD was classified according to the timing after AVR: “very early,” during the first 2-years; “early,” between 2 and 5 years; “midterm,” between 5 and 10 years; and “long-term,” >10 years. Results: A total of 428 patients (30.9%) developed HVD. Among these patients, 52 (12.0%) were classified as “very early,” 129 (30.1%) as “early,” 158 (36.9%) as “midterm,” and 89 (20.8%) as “long-term” HVD. Factors independently associated with HVD occurring within the first 5 years after AVR were diabetes mellitus (P=0.01), active smoking (P=0.01), renal insufficiency (P=0.01), baseline postoperative mean gradient ≥15 mm Hg (P=0.04) or transprosthetic regurgitation ≥mild (P=0.04), and type of BP (stented versus stentless, P=0.003). Factors associated with HVD occurring after the fifth year after AVR were female sex (P=0.03), warfarin use (P=0.007), and BP type (P<0.001). HVD was independently associated with mortality (hazard ratio, 2.18; 95% CI, 1.86–2.57; P<0.001). Conclusions: HVD as identified by Doppler echocardiography occurred in one third of patients and was associated with a 2.2-fold higher adjusted mortality. Diabetes mellitus and renal insufficiency were associated with early HVD, whereas female sex, warfarin use, and stented BPs (versus stentless) were associated with late HVD.

    Outcome of flow-gradient patterns of aortic stenosis after aortic valve replacement : an analysis of the PARTNER 2 trial and registry
    (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2020-07-17) Dahou, Abdellaziz; Rodés-Cabau, Josep; Hahn, Rebecca T.; Beaudoin, Jonathan; Jaber, Wael A.; Annabi, Mohamed Salah; Asch, Federico M.; Bernier, Mathieu; Rodriguez, L. Leonardo; Pibarot, Philippe; Weissman, Neil J.; Clavel, Marie-Annick; Gertz, Zachary M.; Ong, Géraldine; Herrmann, Howard C.; Salaun, Erwan; Toubal, Oumhani; Leipsic, Jonathon; Blanke, Philipp; Ridard, Carine; Webb, John G. (John Graydon); Zhang, Yiran; Alu, Maria C.; Douglas, Pamela S.; Makkar, Rajendra; Miller, D. Craig; Lindman, Brian R.; Thourani, Vinod H.; Leon, Martin B.
    Background : Although aortic valve replacement is associated with a major benefit in high-gradient (HG) severe aortic stenosis (AS), the results in low-gradient (LG, mean gradient <40 mm Hg) AS are conflicting. LG severe AS may be subdivided in classical low-flow (left ventricular ejection fraction <50%) and LG (CLF-LG); paradoxical low-flow (left ventricular ejection fraction ≥50% but stroke volume index <35 mL/m2) and LG; and normal-flow (left ventricular ejection fraction ≥50% and stroke volume index ≥35 mL/m2) and LG. The primary objective is to determine in the PARTNER 2 trial (The Placement of Aortic Transcatheter Valves) and registry the outcomes after aortic valve replacement of the 4 flow-gradient groups. Methods : A total of 3511 patients from the PARTNER 2 Cohort A randomized trial (n=1910) and SAPIEN 3 registry (n=1601) were included. The flow-gradient pattern was determined at baseline transthoracic echocardiography and classified as follows: (1) HG; (2) CLF-LG; (3) paradoxical low-flow-LG; and (4) normal-flow-LG. The primary end point for this analysis was the composite of (1) death; (2) rehospitalization for heart failure symptoms and valve prosthesis complication; or (3) stroke. Results : The distribution was HG, 2229 patients (63.5%); CLF-LG, 689 patients (19.6%); paradoxical low-flow-LG, 247 patients (7.0%); and normal-flow-LG, 346 patients (9.9%). The 2-year rate of primary end point was higher in CLF-LG (38.8%) versus HG: 31.8% (P=0.002) and normal-flow-LG: 32.1% (P=0.05) but was not statistically different from paradoxical low-flow-LG: 33.6% (P=0.18). There was no significant difference in the 2-year rates of clinical events between transcatheter aortic valve replacement versus surgical aortic valve replacement in the whole cohort and within each flow-gradient group. Conclusions : The LG AS pattern was highly prevalent (36.5%) in the PARTNER 2 trial and registry. CLF-LG was the most common pattern of LG AS and was associated with higher rates of death, rehospitalization, or stroke at 2 years compared with the HG group. Clinical outcomes were as good in the LG AS groups with preserved left ventricular ejection fraction compared with the HG group.

    The physiological burden of the 6-minute walk test compared with cardiopulmonary exercise stress test in patients with severe aortic atenosis
    (Elsevier, 2021-02-06) Rodés-Cabau, Josep; Auclair, Audrey; Bagur, Rodrigo Hernan; Nadreau, Éric; Poirier, Paul; Pibarot, Philippe; Clavel, Marie-Annick; Bastien, Marjorie; Forman, Daniel E.
    Background Management of aortic stenosis (AS) relies on symptoms. Exercise testing is recommended for asymptomatic patients with significant AS but is often experienced as forbidding and/or technically unrealistic for patients who are often frail, deconditioned, and intimidated by the exercise test. We compared the physiological burden assessed with gas exchange assessments to gauge and respiratory exchange ratio (RER) of a 6-minute walk test (6MWT) to a cardiopulmonary exercise stress test (CPET) in patients with severe AS. peak oxygen utilization Methods Adults with equivocal symptoms and severe AS (1-aortic valve area [AVA] ≤ 1.0 cm2 or AVA index ≤ 0.6 cm2/m2, 2-peak aortic jet velocity ≥ 4.0 m/sec, 3-mean transvalvular pressure gradient ≥ 40 mm Hg by rest or dobutamine stress echocardiography, or 4-aortic valve calcification ≥ 1200 in women or ≥ 2000 AU in men) were studied. All participants completed both a 6MWT and symptom-limited progressive bicycle exercise testing. Breath-by-breath gas analysis and 12-lead electrocardiography were completed during 6MWT and CPET. Results: Eleven patients were studied. Patients walked on average 330 ± 75 m during the 6MWT and achieved a maximal workload of 48 ± 14 watts during the CPET. During the 6MWT, peak maximal oxygen uptake (O2peak) was 12.8 ± 2.5 vs 10.8 ± 4.2 mL/kg/min during the CPET. Respiratory exchange ratio exceeded 1.1 in both the 6MWT and CPET indicating similarly high exertion. Compared with the CPET, a larger proportion of the 6MWT was performed at a high intensity level (78% ± 28% vs 33% ± 24% at > 85% V̇O2peak; P = 0.004). Conclusions The 6MWT with breath-by-breath gas analysis was well tolerated and able to achieve a physiological intense RER and O2peak that are similar to symptom-limited CPET in patients with severe AS.

    Transient myocardial tissue and function changes during a marathon in less fit marathon runners
    (Elsevier, 2013-10-01) Bertrand, Olivier; Gaudreault, Valérie; Tizón-Marcos, Helena; Larose, Éric; Rodés-Cabau, Josep; Gilbert, Philippe; Amyot, Marc; Poirier, Paul; Pibarot, Philippe; Després, Jean-Pierre
    Background : Although regular physical activity improves health, strenuous exercise might transiently increase cardiac risk. Training and fitness might provide protection. Methods : We prospectively studied 20 recreational marathon runners without known cardiovascular disease or symptoms: at peak training before, immediately after, and 3 months after a 42.2-km marathon. Changes in global/segmental myocardial function, edema, resting perfusion, and fibrosis were measured. Results : At peak training, runners exercised 8.1 ± 2.3 hours and 62 ± 18 km per week with mean maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max) of 53.2 ± 8.3 mL/kg/min. In response to the marathon, global left ventricular and right ventricular ejection fraction decreased in half of the runners; these runners had poorer peak training distance, training time, and fitness level. Change in global left ventricular ejection fraction was associated with VO2max. Overall, 36% of segments developed edema, 53% decreased function, and 59% decreased perfusion. Significant agreement was observed between segment decreasing function, decreasing perfusion, and developing edema. Myocardial changes were reversible at 3 months. Conclusions : Completing a marathon leads to localized myocardial edema, diminished perfusion, and decreased function occurring more extensively in less trained and fit runners. Although reversible, these changes might contribute to the transient increase in cardiac risk reported during sustained vigorous exercise.

    The impact of integration of a multidetector computed tomography annulus area sizing algorithm on outcomes of transcatheter aortic valve replacement : a prospective, multicenter, controlled trial
    (Elsevier Biomedical, 2013-07-30) Binder, Ronald K.; Dumont, Éric; Webb, John G. (John Graydon); Larose, Éric; Willson, Alexander B.; Rodés-Cabau, Josep; Freeman, Melanie; Hansson, Nicolaj C.; Pasian, Sergio; Nørgaard, Bjarne Linde; Urena Alcazar, Marina; Pibarot, Philippe; Barbanti, Marco; Thompson, Chris; Wheeler, Miriam; Moss, Robert; Yang, Tae-Hyun; Hague, Cameron J.; Nguyen, Giang; Raju, Rekha; Toggweiler, Stefan; Min, James K.; Wood, David A.; Leipsic, Jonathon
    OBJECTIVES: This study prospectively investigated the impact of integration of a multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) annular area sizing algorithm on transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) outcomes. BACKGROUND: Appreciation of the 3-dimensional, noncircular geometry of the aortic annulus is important for transcatheter heart valve (THV) sizing. METHODS: Patients being evaluated for TAVR in 4 centers underwent pre-procedural MDCT. Recommendations for balloon-expandable THV size selection were based on an MDCT sizing algorithm with an optimal goal of modest annulus area oversizing (5% to 10%). Consecutive patients who underwent TAVR with the algorithm (MDCT group) were compared with consecutive patients without the algorithm (control group). The primary endpoint was the incidence of more than mild paravalvular regurgitation (PAR), and the secondary endpoint was the composite of in-hospital death, aortic annulus rupture, and severe PAR. RESULTS: Of 266 patients, 133 consecutive patients underwent TAVR (SAPIEN XT THV) in the MDCT group and 133 consecutive patients were in the control group. More than mild PAR was present in 5.3% (7 of 133) of the MDCT group and in 12.8% (17 of 133) in the control group (p = 0.032). The combined secondary endpoint occurred in 3.8% (5 of 133) of the MDCT group and in 11.3% (15 of 133) of the control group (p = 0.02), driven by the difference of severe PAR. CONCLUSIONS: The implementation of an MDCT annulus area sizing algorithm for TAVR reduces PAR. Three-dimensional aortic annular assessment and annular area sizing should be considered for TAVR.

    Cerebral embolism following transcatheter aortic valve implantation : comparison of transfemoral and transapical approaches.
    (Elsevier Biomedical, 2011-01-04) Bédard, Fernand; Dumont, Éric; Boone, Robert H.; De Larochellière, Robert; Larose, Éric; Côté, Mélanie; Gurvitch, Ronen; Villeneuve, Jacques; Rodés-Cabau, Josep; Bagur, Rodrigo Hernan; Doyle, Daniel; Jayasuria, Cleonie; Pibarot, Philippe; Marrero, Alier; Webb, John G. (John Graydon)
    OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to compare the incidence of cerebral embolism (CE) as evaluated by diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) following transapical (TA) transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) versus transfemoral (TF) TAVI. BACKGROUND: The TA-TAVI approach avoids both the manipulation of large catheters in the aortic arch/ascending aorta and the retrograde crossing of the aortic valve, and this avoidance might lead to a lower rate of CE. METHODS: This was a prospective multicenter study including 60 patients who underwent cerebral DW-MRI the day before and within the 6 days following TAVI (TF approach: 29 patients; TA approach: 31 patients). Neurologic and cognitive function assessments were performed at DW-MRI time points. RESULTS: The TAVI procedure was performed with the Edwards valve and was successful in all cases but one (98%). A total of 41 patients (68%) had 251 new cerebral ischemic lesions at the DW-MRI performed 4 ± 1 days after the procedure, 19 patients in the TF group (66%) and 22 patients in the TA group (71%; p = 0.78). Most patients (76%) with new ischemic lesions had multiple lesions (median number of lesions per patient: 3, range 1 to 31). There were no differences in lesion number and size between the TF and TA groups. No baseline or procedural factors were found to be predictors of new ischemic lesions. The occurrence of CE was not associated with a measurable impairment in cognitive function, but 2 patients (3.3%) had a clinically apparent stroke within the 24 h following the procedure (1 patient in each group). CONCLUSIONS: TAVI is associated with a high rate of silent cerebral ischemic lesions as evaluated by DW-MRI, with no differences between the TF and TA approaches. These results provide important novel insight into the mechanisms of CE associated with TAVI and support the need for further research to both reduce the incidence of CE during these procedures and better determine their clinical relevance

    Incidence, predictive factors and haemodynamic consequences of acute stent recoil following transcatheter aortic valve implantation with a balloon-expandable valve
    (Europa Edition, 2014-04-01) DeLarochellière, Hugo; Laflamme, Louis; Dumont, Éric; Larose, Éric; Côté, Mélanie; Nombela-Franco, Luis; Rodés-Cabau, Josep; Laflamme, Jérôme; Pasian, Sergio; Doyle, Daniel; Urena Alcazar, Marina; Pibarot, Philippe; Allende, Ricardo; Ribeiro, Henrique B.; Jerez-Valero, Miguel; De Larochellière, Robert
    Aims: The elastic behaviour (acute recoil) of a valve prosthesis stent following transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is unknown. This study sought to determine the occurrence, severity, predictive factors and haemodynamic consequences of acute recoil following TAVI. Methods and results : A prospective angiographic analysis of the stent frame dimensions in 111 consecutive patients who underwent TAVI with a balloon-expandable valve (36 Edwards SAPIEN; 75 SAPIEN XT) was performed. Acute recoil was defined as the difference between minimal lumen diameter (MLD) at full balloon expansion and immediately after balloon deflation. MLD during balloon inflation was significantly larger than MLD after balloon deflation (23.40±2.31 mm vs. 22.29±2.21 mm, p<0.001), which represented an absolute and percent decrease in stent dimension of 1.10±0.40 mm and 4.70±1.76%, respectively. In the multivariate analysis, the predictors of larger recoil were a higher prosthesis/annulus ratio (r²=0.0624, p=0.015) and the SAPIEN XT prosthesis (r²=0.1276, p=0.001). No significant changes in haemodynamic performance were observed at discharge and follow-up in patients with larger recoil. Conclusions : TAVI with a balloon-expandable valve was systematically associated with a certain degree of valve stent recoil after balloon deflation. A higher degree of valve oversizing and the SAPIEN XT prosthesis predicted a larger degree of stent recoil.

    Comparison of hemodynamic performance of self-expandable CoreValve versus balloon-expandable Edwards SAPIEN aortic valves inserted by catheter for aortic stenosis
    (Elsevier, 2013-04-01) Dumont, Éric; Ruel, Marc; Nombela-Franco, Luis; Radhakrishnan, Sam; Rodés-Cabau, Josep; Webb, John G. (John Graydon); Hansen, Marc; Mok, Michael; Labinaz, Marino; Doyle, Daniel; Thompson, Chris; Urena Alcazar, Marina; Fremes, Stephen; Pibarot, Philippe; Dumesnil, Jean G.; Ribeiro, Henrique B.; Roifman, Idan; Watkins, Stuart; De Larochellière, Robert
    Transcatheter aortic valve implantation with the self-expandable Core Valve (CV) and the balloon-expandable Edwards SAPIEN (ES) bioprostheses has been widely used for the treatment of severe aortic stenosis. However, a direct comparison of the hemodynamic results associated with these 2 prostheses is lacking. The aim of the present study was to compare the hemodynamic performance of both bioprostheses. A total of 41 patients who underwent transcatheter aortic valve implantation with the CV prosthesis were matched 1:1 for prosthesis size (26 mm), aortic annulus size, left ventricular ejection fraction, body surface area, and body mass index with patients who underwent transcatheter aortic valve implantation with the ES prosthesis. Doppler-echocardiographic data were prospectively collected before the intervention and at hospital discharge, and all examinations were sent to, and analyzed in, a central echocardiography core laboratory. The mean transprosthetic residual gradient was lower (p = 0.024) in the CV group (7.9 +/- 3.1 mm Hg) than in the ES group (9.7 +/- 3.8 mm Hg). The effective orifice area tended to be greater in the CV group (1.58 +/- 0.31 cm(2) vs 1.49 +/- 0.24 cm(2), p = 0.10). The incidence of severe prosthesis patient mismatch was, however, similar between the 2 groups (effective orifice area indexed to the body surface area <= 0.65 cm(2)/m(2); CV 9.8%, ES 9.8%, p = 1.0). The incidence of paravalvular aortic regurgitation was greater with the CV (grade 1 or more in 85.4%, grade 2 or more in 39%) than with the ES (grade 1 or more in 58.5%, grade 2 or more in 22%; p = 0.001). The number and extent of paravalvular leaks were greater in the CV group (p < 0.01 for both comparisons). In conclusion, transcatheter aortic valve implantation with the CV prosthesis was associated with a lower residual gradient but a greater rate of paravalvular aortic regurgitation compared to the ES prosthesis. The potential clinical consequences of the differences in hemodynamic performance between these transcatheter heart valves needs to be addressed in future studies.

    Long-term outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve implantation : insights on prognostic factors and valve durability from the Canadian multicenter experience
    (Elsevier Biomedical, 2012-11-06) Dumont, Éric; Webb, John G. (John Graydon); Rodés-Cabau, Josep; Cheung, Anson; Jeansoulin, Robert; Ye, Jian; Doyle, Daniel; Osten, Mark; Pibarot, Philippe; Feindel, Christopher M.; Dumesnil, Jean G.; Natarajan, Madhu K.; Velianou, James L.; Martucci, Giussepe; De Varennes, Benoît; Peterson, Mark; Thompson, Chris; Wood, David A.; Toggweiler, Stefan; Gurvitch, Ronen; Lichtenstein, Samuel V.; Teoh, Kevin; Chu, Victor; Bainey, Kevin; Lachapelle, Kevin; Cheema, Asim; Latter, David; Horlick, Eric; De Larochellière, Robert
    OBJECTIVES: This study sought to evaluate the long-term outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) in the Multicenter Canadian Experience study, with special focus on the causes and predictors of late mortality and valve durability. BACKGROUND: Very few data exist on the long-term outcomes associated with TAVI. METHODS: This was a multicenter study including 339 patients considered to be nonoperable or at very high surgical risk (mean age: 81 ± 8 years; Society of Thoracic Surgeons score: 9.8 ± 6.4%) who underwent TAVI with a balloon-expandable Edwards valve (transfemoral: 48%, transapical: 52%). Follow-up was available in 99% of the patients, and serial echocardiographic exams were evaluated in a central echocardiography core laboratory. RESULTS: At a mean follow-up of 42 ± 15 months 188 patients (55.5%) had died. The causes of late death (152 patients) were noncardiac (59.2%), cardiac (23.0%), and unknown (17.8%). The predictors of late mortality were chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (hazard ratio [HR]: 2.18, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.53 to 3.11), chronic kidney disease (HR: 1.08 for each decrease of 10 ml/min in estimated glomerular filtration rate, 95% CI: 1.01 to 1.19), chronic atrial fibrillation (HR: 1.44, 95% CI: 1.02 to 2.03), and frailty (HR: 1.52, 95% CI: 1.07 to 2.17). A mild nonclinically significant decrease in valve area occurred at 2-year follow-up (p < 0.01), but no further reduction in valve area was observed up to 4-year follow-up. No changes in residual aortic regurgitation and no cases of structural valve failure were observed during the follow-up period. CONCLUSIONS: Approximately one-half of the patients who underwent TAVI because of a high or prohibitive surgical risk profile had died at a mean follow-up of 3.5 years. Late mortality was due to noncardiac comorbidities in more than one-half of patients. No clinically significant deterioration in valve function was observed throughout the follow-up period.
