Multimodality imaging for preprocedural planning of percutaneous mitral valve repair: a comprehensive review misjournal.net June 12, 2022, 4:06 p.m.
Echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR), and cardiac computed tomography (CT) may provide complementary information to guide patient and device selection. Evaluation of mitral valve anatomy, identification of MV lesion, and quantification of defect severity should be integrated by comprehensive preprocedural assessment of chamber size, biventricular systolic and diastolic function, hemodynamic impact, and aortic or peripheral vascular disease.
In-Hospital Outcomes and Predictors of Mortality for Redo Surgical Mitral Valve Replacement Versus Transcatheter Mitral Valve-in-Valve Replacement www.ajconline.org June 12, 2022, 4:04 p.m.
Durability is a major limitation with bioprosthetic heart valves. For mitral valve prosthesis dysfunction, redo surgical mitral valve replacement (rSMVR) has been the mainstay of treatment; however, transcatheter mitral valve-in-valve replacement (mViV) has emerged as a viable alternative. Data comparing these procedures remains limited; therefore, we sought to compare the real-world in-hospital mortality, likelihood of adverse peri-operative outcomes, and predictors of mortality between rSMVR versus mViV using the National Inpatient Sample.

Cerebral embolism during transcatheter mitral valve repair: not so silent after all? eurointervention.pcronline.com June 11, 2022, 4:11 p.m.
The risk of liberating embolic debris is inherent to most, if not all, structural heart interventions. Large-bore device placement within the heart chambers, particularly via a transseptal or transaortic approach, and substantial interaction with cardiac structures may release acute or chronic thrombus, cardiac tissue, and device-related material into the bloodstream. One major consequence, cerebral embolism, is one of the most dreadful periprocedural complications of left-sided structural heart interventions. Ongoing research on cerebral embolic protection devices aims to further improve outcome in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)1.

Mitral regurgitation (MR) etiology can be categorized into primary or secondary. In primary MR (also knows as degenerative), there is an abnormality in one or more components of the mitral apparatus (leaflets, annulus, chordae tendineae, papillary muscles). In secondary MR (also known as functional), the valve itself is usually normal but mitral insufficiency arises from alterations in left ventricular (LV) geometry.

Two Cases of Arrhythmic Mitral Valve Prolapse: Evil Has Many Faces www.innovationsincrm.com June 5, 2022, 1:36 p.m.
The association of MVP and SCD is supported by several clinical, electrocardiographic, and imaging findings. However, there is no single risk marker, nor any specific combination of them, that has proved to be a consistent predictor of malignant VAs and SCD in patients with MVP. Therefore, further research is needed to validate the existing risk markers, improve our understanding of the underlying arrhythmogenic mechanisms, and establish optimal evidence-based treatment strategies.
