The prevalence of degenerative valvular disease is increasing in the context of an increasingly ageing population, and despite advances in medical and surgical interventions, is associated with a significantly worse outcome when compared with the general population. Data from the EuroHeart Survey (2003) suggests the commonest relates to native ...…
 
The title of the talk is emblematic of the binary way that we have approached structural heart disease where cardiac surgery or an interventional procedure might be required – this thinking is now transitioning to an entirely different paradigm which is that of the “Heart Team”. Remarkable advances over the last decade have led to a plethora of ...…
 
CARDIAC REVASCULARIZATION SURGERY IN THE ELDERLY: AN EVIDENCE-BASED HEALTH ECONOMIC APPROACH Background: Increasing prevalence of chronic disease in the context of an ageing society has led many to question the value of cardiac revascularization surgery and associated intensive care in elderly (octogenarian) populations. However societal expect ...…
 
Introduction: Recent times have witnessed almost half, or sometimes more cardiac surgical procedures are performed in patients above 75 years of age. Traditionally, the EuroSCORE II and STS risk scoring systems have been widely used across the globe. Extensive reviews have shown that EuroSCORE II probably overestimates the perioperative risk at ...…
 
"The real benefit to the patient [of echocardiography] is not the technical skill, but rather the application of intellectual input... information, communication and teamwork are essential" Jos Roelandt, 1993 Of all the imaging techniques used in intensive care, echocardiography has come to the fore, in particular due to its accessibility, imme ...…
 
The goal of hemodynamic monitoring is to assess the cardiovascular state of the patient, define their reserve and monitor response to treatments and time. Resuscitation efforts are essentially aimed at restoring and sustaining tissue wellness through maintaining an adequate amount of oxygenated blood flow to the metabolically active tissues. We ...…
 
Many tools are nowadays available to monitor patients’ hemodynamics in the intensive care unit (ICU) and in the operating room (OR) settings. Some monitoring tools are invasive such as the pulmonary artery catheter (PAC), some others are less invasive such as transpulmonary thermodilution (TPD) systems, some others are called minimally invasive ...…
 
With increasing survival comes morbidity. Pulmonary hypertension in the critical care population represents a secondary disease of myriad pathologies for children and adults. Whilst often cardiac failure or respiratory disease complicated by pulmonary hypertension, the exact aetiology of secondary pulmonary hypertension can be a diagnostic chal ...…
 
The right ventricle (RV) is not important, until it is. Under normal conditions RV function merely keeps central venous pressure low and delivers all the venous return per beat into the pulmonary circulation under low pressure. If pulmonary artery pressures increase due to pulmonary vascular disease (embolism, ARDS, COPD), over-distention (COPD ...…
 
The two major causes of acute right ventricular (RV) failure in ICU patients are acute cor pulmonale (ACP) during acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and ACP during acute massive pulmonary embolism (PE). The increase in pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) in ARDS can be secondary either to « structural » mechanisms related to lung injury ...…
 
The use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), and ventricular assist devices (VADs) for both short-term and long-term management of advanced cardiac (and respiratory) failure is increasing. Both thrombotic and haemorrhagic complications are common in patients receiving mechanical support, and such complications are associated with incr ...…
 
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is one of the most preventable complications in hospitalised patients. Critically ill patients are at risk of VTE due to coexisting of multiple risk factors but, at the same time, often at risk of bleeding. Though not common, fatal pulmonary embolism (PE) continues to occur [1] – due to the alignment of failures (or ...…
