Short Synopsis

This webinar was broadcasted after the publication of the new version of the Valvular Heart Diseases (VHDs) Guidelines in August.

Three clinical cases were discussed:

The first case was a 40-year-old pregnant female with Bicuspid Valve AS. Apparently the AS got worse; but in the presence of a condition of reversible high flow, which may elevate the valvular gradient, it is necessary to re-evaluate the AS after delivery. In severe AS, intervention should be guaranteed in presence of a low EF, symptoms or symptom development during an exercise test, and also marked BNP elevation and pulmonary hypertension development. In patients at low risk, the SAVR is still the choice.

The second case highlighted the essential role of the heart team in the management. The patient studied was very old, and presented a very high risk due to CAD, peripheral VD, PM for II BAV, COPD. The intervention choice was a trans-apical approach TAVI (he was not suitable for SAVR and not for trans-femoral TAVI approach). This case was very useful to discuss the issues in favour of the indication for TAVI vs SAVR.

The third case was a very complex patient with a previous replacement of the aortic root and ascending aorta with severe Aortic Regurgitation, very low EF (20%), severe MR. In this very difficult and risky situation, an operation using a SAVR, and a mitral valve repair may be the solution.
