Cardiac regenerative strategies for interventionalist
15 Sep 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017
Can we create new myocardia and develop a “cure” for heart failure? Faced with an array of medical and device treatment, G.G Toth, D. Burkhoff and W. Wojakowski underline what is missing in current strategies apart from heart transplants – Do they actually have an effect on the missing or remodeled myocytes? How could interventionalists replace muscle cells that have been destroyed or altered? Current and past cell therapies are reviewed along with emerging data, types of cells tested as well as looking at delivery techniques or specific patient groups. Critical problems and limitations facing research are discussed to understand why advancing this therapy has been unsuccessful. Learn more…

How should I treat a small, failing surgical bioprosthesis in a high surgical risk patient?
14 Sep 2017
A 77-year-old female who underwent surgical aortic valve replacement with a 21mm Mosaic bioprosthesis 13 years prior presented with worsening dyspnea on exertion. The patient was considered high surgical risk, so surgical valve replacement as well as valve-in-valve transcatheter aortic valve implantation were discussed as a treatment options.

10 Sep 2017
Herein, we present 3 important studies concerning the use of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) within small degenerated surgical bioprosthetic valves. In such cases, left main coronary occlusion and high post-implant gradients are not infrequently encountered, increasing mortality and curtailing symptomatic improvement.
2017 ESC Silver medalist and Andreas Grüntzig lecturer, MC Morice, speaks with 2017 ESC Gold medalist, William Wijns
40 years of angioplasty, 15 years of TAVI! Join MC Morice, this year’s Andreas Grüntzig lecturer and recipient of the 2017 ESC Silver Medal, in this conversation with W. Wijns, the ESC 2017 Gold medal awardee, as these two pioneers discuss their lifework. MC Morice looks at her ongoing commitment to research including her ground-breaking 1995 study on intracoronary stenting without Coumadin. W.Wijns, remembering the patient at the centre of our discipline, sees Stent for Life – with its positive effect on patient access to therapies and significant impact on morbidity and mortality – along with the educational activities of the PCR family, as part of his living legacy.
