Abstract BACKGROUND Evidence about safety and efficacy of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) remains limited for patients with aortic regurgitation (AR). METHODS From the Safety & Efficacy of the J-Valve Ausper System in Patients with Severe Aortic Stenosis and/or Aortic Regurgitation Registry, the clinical outcomes of patients with AR from West China Hospital were analyzed. RESULTS A total of 134 patients with a mean Society of Thoracic Surgeons risk score of 9.8% underwent TAVR with...

Objectives To determine the prognosis of Takayasu arteritis (TA) patients with moderate-to-severe aortic regurgitation treated with surgical vs conservative treatment and to identify independent prognostic factors of long-term outcomes. Methods Between January 2002 and January 2017, 101 consecutive TA patients with moderate-to-severe aortic regurgitation treated with either surgical (n = 38) or conservative (n = 63) treatments were investigated in this retrospective observational case-control st...

Abstract Background Aortic regurgitation is a common complication in patients with Takayasu arteritis. Severe aortic regurgitation requires surgical treatment. We investigated the outcomes of aortic valve replacement (AVR) and composite graft replacement (CGR) in patients with Takayasu arteritis and aortic regurgitation. Methods We retrospectively reviewed the data of 41 patients with TA and aortic regurgitation treated by AVR (n = 23) and CGR (n = 18) from January 1992 to December 2016. Results...

Takayasu arteritis (TAK) is a systemic vasculitis with severe complications that affects the aorta and its large branches. HLA-B*52 is an established susceptibility locus to TAK. To date, there are still only a limited number of reports concerning non-HLA susceptibility loci to TAK. We conducted a genome-wide association study (GWAS) and a follow-up study in a total of 633 TAK cases and 5,928 controls. A total of 510,879 SNPs were genotyped, and 5,875,450 SNPs were imputed together with HLA-B*52...

A 19-year-old man was admitted in our tertiary care center in August 2014 for a 10-kg weight loss in a few months (48 kg, 1.80 m, and body mass index, 14.8 kg/m2), claudication in the lower limbs after a 500-m distance and a postprandial abdominal pain associated with mild renal insufficiency and proteinuria with no hypertension (100/80 mm Hg). The patient had no medical history and was an active smoker (tobacco and cannabis, estimated consumption: 2 pack-years). Laboratory parameters were eleva...

Takayasu arteritis (TAK) is an acute and chronic vasculitis of unknown etiology. Recently, our group reported that SNP rs6871626 in the IL12B region had significant association with disease susceptibility to TAK. However, association of the SNP with clinical characteristics of TAK has yet to be determined. Therefore, we assessed whether this SNP was associated with TAK disease severity as represented by early onset and/or refractoriness to medical therapy. A total of 90 patients were genotyped f...

Background Takayasu arteritis (TA) predisposes to the development of arterial stenoses and aneurysms, and is associated with considerable morbidity and mortality amongst young patients. The aims of this study were to analyse indications and outcomes of surgical intervention, and to assess the potential benefits of immunosuppression and the use of perioperative imaging. Methods This was a retrospective review of patients with TA referred between 2001 and 2012. Results A series of 97 patients with...

Takayasu arteritis (TAK) is an autoimmune systemic vasculitis of unknown etiology. Although previous studies have revealed that HLA-B∗52:01 has an effect on TAK susceptibility, no other genetic determinants have been established so far. Here, we performed genome scanning of 167 TAK cases and 663 healthy controls via Illumina Infinium Human Exome BeadChip arrays, followed by a replication study consisting of 212 TAK cases and 1,322 controls. As a result, we found that the IL12B region on chromoso...
