TranscatHeter therapies for the treatment of valvular and paravalvular regurgitation in acquired and congenital valvular heart disease


Ruiz, Carlos E; Kliger, Chad; Perk, Gila; Maisano, Francesco; Cabalka, Allison K; Landzberg, Michael; Rihal, Chet; Kronzon, Itzhak (2015). TranscatHeter therapies for the treatment of valvular and paravalvular regurgitation in acquired and congenital valvular heart disease. Journal of the American College of Cardiology, 66(2):169-183.

Abstract

Transcatheter therapies in structural heart disease have evolved tremendously over the past 15 years. Since the introduction of the first balloon-expandable valves for stenotic lesions with implantation in the pulmonic position in 2000, treatment for valvular heart disease in the outflow position has become more refined, with newer-generation devices, alternative techniques, and novel access approaches. Recent efforts into the inflow position and regurgitant lesions, with transcatheter repair and replacement technologies, have expanded our potential to treat a broader, more heterogeneous patient population. The evolution of multimodality imaging has paralleled these developments. Three- and 4-dimensional visualization and concomitant use of novel technologies, such as fusion imaging, have supported technical growth, from pre-procedural planning and intraprocedural guidance, to assessment of acute results and follow-up. A multimodality approach has allowed operators to overcome many limitations of each modality and facilitated integration of a multidisciplinary team for treatment of this complex patient population.
