Dyspnea is common after a pulmonary embolism. Often, but not always, the dyspnea can be explained by pre-existing comorbidities, and only rarely by chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). CTEPH is probably the extreme manifestation of a far more common condition, called the post-pulmonary embolism syndrome. The purpose of this retrospective study was to investigate the prevalence and predictors of dyspnea among Swedish patients that survived a pulmonary embolism, compared to the g...

AIMS Concomitant secondary atrioventricular regurgitation is frequent in patients with severe aortic stenosis scheduled for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). The future implications of leaving associated valve lesions untreated after TAVR remain unknown. Aim of the present study was to characterize the evolution of concomitant secondary atrioventricular regurgitations and to evaluate their impact on long-term prognosis. METHODS AND RESULTS We prospectively enrolled 429 consecutive T...

ISHLT members have recognized the importance of a consensus statement on the evaluation and management of patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension. The creation of this document required multiple steps, including the engagement of the ISHLT councils, approval by the Standards and Guidelines Committee, identification and selection of experts in the field, and the development of 6 working groups. Each working group provided a separate section based on an extensive literature sea...

Background null Balloon pulmonary angioplasty (BPA) is an emerging percutaneous therapy for patients with inoperable chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension, and patients with mean pulmonary artery pressure ≤30 mm Hg have an excellent survival. Common vascular lesion types are ring-like stenoses (type A), web lesions (type B), subtotal occlusions (type C), chronic total occlusions (CTOs; type D), and tortuous lesions (type E). Occlusive lesions (ie, subtotal occlusions and CTOs) are the mo...

The clinical relevance of as well as the optimal treatment strategy for coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) for severe aortic stenosis (AS) are unclear. Current data are conflicting, and mainly derived from high-risk patients. We aimed to investigate the feasibility and safety of complete revascularization prior to TAVR for severe AS in low- and intermediate-risk patients. We enrolled 449 patients at low (STS score null 3 months) com...

Background null Pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA), pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) therapy and balloon pulmonary angioplasty (BPA) are currently accepted therapies for chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). This international CTEPH Registry identifies clinical characteristics of patients, diagnostic algorithms and treatment decisions in a global context. null Methods null 1010 newly diagnosed consecutive patients were included in the registry between February 2015 and Septembe...

Aims null Extracellular chromatin and deoxyribonuclease (DNase) have been identified as important players of thrombosis, inflammation and homeostasis in a murine model. We previously demonstrated that activated neutrophils release neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) at the culprit site in ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), which significantly contribute to extracellular chromatin burden, and are associated with larger infarcts. To understand the correlation between neutrophil activati...

AIMS An interrelation between cancer and thrombosis is known, but population-based studies on the risk of both arterial thromboembolism (ATE) and venous thromboembolism (VTE) have not been performed. METHODS AND RESULTS International Classification of Disease 10th Revision (ICD-10) diagnosis codes of all publicly insured persons in Austria (0-90 years) were extracted from the Austrian Association of Social Security Providers dataset covering the years 2006-07 (n = 8 306 244). Patients with a his...
