The ideal prosthesis for tricuspid valve replacement (TVR) continues to be debated. There are few series comparing mechanical and bioprosthetic valves, and all are retrospective studies with a relatively small sample size. This meta-analysis was conducted to compare mechanical vs bioprosthetic valves for tricuspid valve replacement. A literature search of six databases was performed: PubMed, Embase, Ovid, Science Direct, Justor, and Wily Blackwell. The keywords that were used were: “tricuspid va...

BACKGROUND Atherosclerotic coronary plaque dissection (ACPD) is one cause of acute coronary syndrome caused by underlying atherosclerosis. Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) occurs outside the setting of atherosclerosis among young women and individuals with few or no conventional atherosclerotic risk factors, and has emerged as an important cause of acute coronary syndrome, and sudden death. A comparison between ACPD and SCAD has not been previously addressed in the literature. Our s...

BACKGROUND The number of MtraClip procedures is increasing, and consequently, the number of patients with residual or recurrent mitral regurgitation (MR). We aimed to characterize patients who had residual versus recurrent MR after MitraClip and report the outcomes of different treatment strategies. METHODS From 2012 to 2020, 167 patients had MitraClip. Out of them, 16 patients (9.5%) had residual mitral regurgitation (MR), and 27 patients (16.2%) had recurrent MR. RESULTS The median age in pati...

INTRODUCTION There are scarce data comparing different mechanical valves in the aortic position. The objective of this study was to compare the early hemodynamic changes after aortic valve replacement between ATS, Bicarbon, and On-X mechanical valves. METHODS We included 99 patients who underwent aortic valve replacement with mechanical valves between 2017 and 2019. Three types of mechanical valves were used, On-X valve (n=45), ATS AP360 (n=32), and Bicarbon (n=22). The mean prosthetic valve gra...

Data on spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is based on European and North American registries. We assessed the prevalence, epidemiology, and outcomes of patients presenting with SCAD in Arab Gulf countries. Patients (n = 83) were diagnosed with SCAD based on angiographic and intravascular imaging whenever available. Thirty centers in 4 Arab Gulf countries (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, and Bahrain) were involved from January 2011 to December 2017. In-hospital ...

BACKGROUND Shone's complex is a rare lesion affecting the mitral valve (MV) and left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT). The objective of this study is to report the outcomes after Shone's complex repair, the growth of mitral and aortic valve and LVOT, and long-term survival. METHODS This retrospective study included all patients diagnosed with Shone's complex, who underwent biventricular repair. Data including patients' characteristics, type of the MV lesion and the associated lesions were collec...
