Aortic stenosis (AS) is common in the elderly with an increasing number of patients as our population ages but precise estimates of prevalence have been limited by inadequate diagnostic data in most clinical databases. In this issue of Heart , Owens and colleagues1 performed a targeted review of medical records for 5795 participants over age 65 years in the population based Cardiovascular Health Study to determine the frequency of moderate to severe AS. Over 25 years, the cumulative frequency of...

Acute coronary syndrome due to spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) typically is managed conservatively because coronary anatomy returns to normal in most patients at follow-up and because there is a high rate of technical failure and complications with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). However, a subgroup of these patients is at risk of extensive myocardial infarction and might benefit from PCI, despite the risk of complications. In this issue of Heart , Kotecha and colleagues1...

Each year, the Heart editorial team selects the most meritorious research paper to receive the Heart Best Research Paper Award. Primary considerations are the relevance of the clinical question addressed by the research, the quality of the research study design and data presentation and the interest generated by the paper among other researchers, clinical cardiologists and the general public. This year, we are pleased to announce the winner and two finalists for the 2021 Heart Best Paper Researc...

The role of catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) in management of patients with paroxysmal AF is controversial. In this issue of Heart , Gupta and colleagues1 report data from a multicentre study of 329 consecutive patients with drug-refractory paroxysmal AF treated with AF ablation by pulmonary vein isolation guided by a standardised CLOSE (contiguous optimised lesions) protocol. Patient reported quality of life (QOL) measures showed significant improvement across all domains at 12 mon...

The FAMCAT score is based on systematic screening of routine primary care records for cholesterol measurements, age, triglycerides, family...

This International Consensus Classification and Nomenclature for the congenital bicuspid aortic valve condition recognizes 3 types of bicuspid valves: 1. The fused type (right-left cusp fusion, right-non-coronary cusp fusion and left-non-coronary cusp fusion phenotypes); 2. The 2-sinus type (latero-lateral and antero-posterior phenotypes); and 3. The partial-fusion (forme fruste) type. The presence of raphe and the symmetry of the fused type phenotypes are critical aspects to describe. The Inter...

This International evidence-based nomenclature and classification consensus on the congenital bicuspid aortic valve and its aortopathy recognizes 3 types of bicuspid aortic valve: 1. Fused type, with 3 phenotypes: right-left cusp fusion, right-non cusp fusion and left-non cusp fusion; 2. 2-sinus type with 2 phenotypes: Latero-lateral and antero-posterior; and 3. Partial-fusion or forme fruste. This consensus recognizes 3 bicuspid-aortopathy types: 1. Ascending phenotype; root phenotype; and 3. e...
