Purpose Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) techniques show favourable survival outcomes in high-risk patients, but the incidence of postoperative delirium is unknown. We conducted a historical cohort study to compare postoperative delirium in retrograde transfemoral (TF) versus anterograde transapical (TA) TAVI procedures. We also sought to identify independent predictors of delirium following TAVI.

Introduction: Delirium is a temporary mental disorder that frequently occurs among elderly hospitalized patients. Patients who undergo cardiac operations have an increased risk of postoperative delirium, which is associated with higher mortality and morbidity rates, a prolonged hospital stay, and reduced cognitive and functional recovery. Patients and Methods: In our prospective study, we included 370 consecutive adult patients who underwent on-pump coronary artery surgery between January 1, 201...

BACKGROUND Delirium is common after cardiac surgery and may be associated with long-term changes in cognitive function. We examined postoperative delirium and the cognitive trajectory during the first year after cardiac surgery. METHODS We enrolled 225 patients 60 years of age or older who were planning to undergo coronary-artery bypass grafting or valve replacement. Patients were assessed preoperatively, daily during hospitalization beginning on postoperative day 2, and at 1, 6, and 12 months a...

Abstract Background: The aim of this study is to determine the risk factors of delirium after cardiac surgery. Methods: A systematic literature search of MEDLINE, EMBASE, the Cochrane Library, and Science Citation Index limited to 2008 to 2011 and review of studies was conducted. Eligible studies were of randomized controlled trials or cohort studies, using delirium assessment tool, reporting at least one risk factor associated with delirium, and available to full text. Results: The search ident...

Background Transcatheter aortic valve implantation is commonly implanted through a transfemoral (TFA) or transapical approach (TAA) for patients with severe aortic stenosis. This study aimed to describe the clinical and echocardiographic outcomes of TFA versus TAA. Methods Clinical and echocardiographic evaluations were performed at baseline, post-TAVI (transcatheter aortic valve implantation), at 6 and 12 months follow-up in 107 consecutive patients who underwent TAVI with balloon-expandable va...

: Off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) has not abolished the risk of postoperative stroke and delirium seen for on-pump CABG. Advanced arteriosclerotic changes are common in both on-pump and off-pump CABG. We sought to analyze if advanced arteriosclerotic changes are risk factors of stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA), and delirium after off-pump CABG. Patients undergoing off-pump CABG between 2001 and 2005 were reviewed using medical records (n=685). Potential risk factors of po...

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 ...

Background Many patients with severe aortic stenosis and coexisting conditions are not candi dates for surgical replacement of the aortic valve. Recently, transcatheter aortic-valve implantation (TAVI) has been suggested as a less invasive treatment for high-risk patients with aortic stenosis. Methods We randomly assigned patients with severe aortic stenosis, whom surgeons considered not to be suitable candidates for surgery, to standard therapy (including balloon aortic valvuloplasty) or transf...

Objective Transapical aortic valve implantation is a recent therapeutic advance for aortic valvular disease. We sought to identify complications—and the relevant technical and management considerations—from our learning curve with this procedure. Methods We retrospectively reviewed perioperative complications during the first 60 transapical aortic valve implantations at a single institution, performed under compassionate release for patients who were candidates neither for conventional aortic va...

Background We performed the first human case of successful transapical transcatheter aortic valve implantation on a beating heart in October 2005, and therefore we have the longest follow-up on transapical aortic valve implantation in humans. We now report clinical and echocardiographic outcomes of transapical aortic valve implantation in 71 patients. Methods Between October 2005 and February 2009, 71 patients (44 female) underwent transcatheter transapical aortic valve implantation with either ...

Patients who undergo transcatheter aortic valve replacement often are frail and elderly. Delirium is a frequently observed complication, associated with impaired recovery, prolonged hospital stay, and mortality. In different hospital settings, interventions that reduced the incidence of delirium resulted in improved clinical outcome and reduced costs. In that context, prevention, early recognition, and timely interventions could be the next step toward better outcomes of transcatheter aortic val...

Abstract Changes to cognition, both decline and improvement, are commonly reported following transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). However, previous systematic reviews and meta-analyses have missed these subgroups by assessing whole-group-averages for cognitive outcomes. We sought to pool estimates to identify the prevalence of cognitive decline and improvement after TAVI, as well as associated factors for these outcomes. A systematic review identified 15 articles appropriate for meta-...

BACKGROUND: delirium is an event leading to negative health outcomes and increased mortality in patients. The aim of this study is to investigate the incidence, determinants and consequences of post-operative delirium (POD) in older patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). METHODS: The TAVI Care and Cure program is a prospective, observational registry in patients referred for TAVI at Erasmus University Medical Centre. The presence of delirium was evaluated by daily cl...

AIMS: Patients with postoperative delirium (POD) after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) are ventilated and hospitalized longer and suffer increased in-hospital mortality. This study hypothesized that a minimalistic approach with conscious sedation during transfemoral aortic valve replacement (TF-AVR) protects against delirium, time of mechanical ventilation, and increased length of stay in intensive care unit (ICU) compared to intubation anaesthesia. METHODS AND RESULTS: 308 patient...

Aortic stenosis is the most common valvular heart disease among elderly patients in developed countries. Surgical valve replacement is indicated for severe aortic stenosis to relieve the obstructed outflow tract. Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has emerged as an alternative for patients with severe aortic stenosis, particularly in those with high surgical risk. TAVI is a less invasive approach with favorable survival outcomes in high-risk patients compared to open surgery. Despite...

Objective(s) This study was designed to compare 2 different perioperative analgesia strategies with respect to the incidence of postoperative delirium after a transapical approach for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). The authors hypothesized that perioperative thoracic paravertebral analgesia with a local anesthetic would decrease opioid consumption and in turn reduce the incidence of postoperative delirium when compared with systemic opioid-based analgesia after a transapical TAVR...

: Background: Current surgical risk assessment tools fall short of appreciating geriatric risk factors including cognitive deficits, depressive, and frailty symptoms that may worsen outcomes post-transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). This study hypothesized that a screening tool, SMARTIE, would improve detection of these risks pre-TAVI, and thus be predictive of postoperative delirium (POD) and 30-day mortality post-TAVI. Design: Prospective observational cohort study, using a historic...

Abstract Background Frailty in patients undergoing Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) has been associated with an increased 1-year mortality rate but the relation of frailty and short term outcomes yields conflicting results. This study investigated the association of a novel and self-developed Erasmus Frailty Score with both short and long term outcomes after TAVI. Methods TAVI Care & Cure is an observational ongoing study, which includes consecutive patients undergoing TAVI at the ...
