Objective Bioprosthetic valve thrombosis (BPVT) is increasingly recognised as a major cause of prosthetic dysfunction in the first years postimplantation. How early abnormal gradients can be detected prior to diagnosis and how fast they normalise with anticoagulant therapy is unknown. We set forth to (1) evaluate patterns of increase in gradients prior to BPVT diagnosis and (2) characterise time-course of response to anticoagulation. Methods Patients treated with warfarin for BPVT (1999–2019) wi...

Abstract Background Early in the prevention and treatment of bioprosthetic valve thrombosis (BPVT), anticoagulation is effective, but the long-term outcome after BPVT is unknown. Objectives The goal of this study was to assess the long-term outcomes of patients with BPVT treated with anticoagulation. Methods This analysis was a matched cohort study of patients treated with warfarin for suspected BPVT at the Mayo Clinic between 1999 and 2017. Results A total of 83 patients treated with warfarin f...

Abstract Objective To define mortality associated with isolated tricuspid regurgitation (TR) and identify risk factors associated with decreased survival. Patients and Methods We conducted a retrospective cohort study of residents of southeastern Minnesota with moderate-severe or more severe isolated TR diagnosed between January 1, 2005, and April 15, 2015. Isolated TR was defined as TR in the absence of left-sided heart disease or pulmonary hypertension. Patients with an ejection fraction of le...

Background The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that intrinsic cardiac elastography can detect diastolic tissue abnormalities produced by cardiac amyloid infiltration and that measurements may have incremental value beyond traditional echocardiographic measures. The specific aims were (1) to evaluate the relationship between left ventricular myocardial stiffness (by elastography) and measures of diastolic chamber stiffness and systolic strain in patients with amyloidosis and (2) to c...

Amyloidosis is a rare infiltrative disease, and cardiac involvement is the leading cause of death, particularly in light-chain (AL) amyloidosis. Routine echocardiographic and magnetic resonance imaging provide information on amyloid deposition and its consequences on cardiac function and structure,

We sought to characterize mid-ascending aorta diameter reference values by age, sex, and body surface area (BSA) in a large echocardiography laboratory practice-based cohort. All subjects with transthoracic echocardiograms with mid-ascending aorta diameter measure from January 2004 to December 2009 were identified, and medical records were reviewed for medical history and anthropometric data. Those with aortic valve disease or replacement, congenital heart disease, any connective tissue or infla...

Nonbacterial thrombotic endocarditis (NBTE) is rare and the role of the new oral anticoagulants (NOAC) as treatment is uncertain. A 50-year old woman with a history of migraines complained of worsening headaches over the last 12 months accompanied by neurologic deficits and altered mental status.

Assessment of mitral stenosis (MS) severity can be challenging when the mean diastolic mitral gradient (MG) and the mitral valve area (MVA) are discordant. In these cases, taking into account patient hemodynamics becomes essential. A 30-year-old woman presented with a 3-month history of heart
