The European Society of Cardiology's updated guidelines emphasize the usefulness of exercise stress echocardiography in patients with valvular heart disease. Exercise-induced changes in valve hemodynamics should be assessed in patients with mitral valve disease. In asymptomatic patients with moderate or severe mitral regurgitation without left ventricular dysfunction/dilatation, exercise stress echocardiography may identify a subset of patients with reduced cardiac event-free survival who are at a higher risk of developing symptoms. In patients with mitral stenosis who are asymptomatic, the development of symptoms during exercise is strongly related to the kinetics of the changes in the systolic pulmonary arterial pressure.

Valvular regurgitation represents an important cause of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Echocardiography has become the primary non-invasive imaging method for the evaluation of valvular regurgitation. The echocardiographic assessment of valvular regurgitation should integrate the quantification of the regurgitation, assessment of the valve anatomy and function, as well as the consequences of valvular disease on cardiac chambers. In clinical practice, the management of patients with valvular regurgitation thus largely integrates the results of echocardiography. It is crucial to provide standards that aim at establishing a baseline list of measurements to be performed when assessing regurgitation. [less ▲]

During the last decades, the care of children with congenital heart disease has markedly improved. In consequence, the number of those who reach adulthood is continuously growing. In 2010, the European Society of Cardiology published guidelines for the management of grown-up congenital heart disease (GUCH) and recommended that each GUCH patient should be examined at least once in a specialized center. Due to their specific needs, this population requires specific and organized care. Indeed, GUCH patients do not only have significant extra-cardiac problems, but also present specific cardiac complications such as right ventricular failure, incisionnal arrhythmias. They may require repeated surgical and/ or percutaneous interventions. Since this emerging population is ageing, they also may suffer from arterial hypertension, diabetes and coronary artery disease. Last but not least, young women with congenital heart disease need specialized advice and care for contraception, follow-up during pregnancy and peripartal management. In order to optimize the follow-up of this growing population, a shared care model where cardiologists, specialized GUCH centers and other specialized centers for the treatment of extra-cardiac problems work in tight collaboration is recommended.

Background – Mitral regurgitation (MR) is a common valvular disease throughout the world. Various diagnostic techniques have been developed to assess the causes and severity of MR, and the therapeutic approaches to this disease have been widely documented. However, treatments for chronic MR remain controversial, and various animal models of chronic MR (including chordae tendineae rupture, rapid pacing and ischemia) have been developed to study the pathophysiology and therapeutic approaches to this disease. The objective of this paper is to review the animal MR models that have been developed using a mitral valve chordae tendineae rupture technique. Animal models – Dogs and sheep have been the animals most commonly used in MR models induced by mitral valve chordae tendineae rupture, mainly due to considerations of cardiac size. Chordae tendineae cutting is performed using closed or open chest techniques. In the closed chest model, long flexible grasping forceps are positioned percutaneously in order to tear the mitral valve chordae. In the open chest model, cardiopulmonary bypass is performed and either selected chordae are cut under direct visualization, or a non specified number of chordae are cut using a metal device inserted through the left ventricular apex. Whatever the model used, MR has been found to become chronic 3 to 6 months after the induction of MR by chordae rupture. The reported mortality and complication rates of these models are high. Conclusion – In the long term, experimental evolution of chronic MR is similar to the evolution occurring naturally in patients suffering from chronic MR. These models could thus be useful in understanding the disease better and in testing new therapeutic modalities. This review summarizes the physiological effects of each of these techniques and compares the advantages and disadvantages of each procedure. [less ▲]

The case of a 60-year-old male presenting fever of recent onset is reported. He had undergone a Bentall operation seven yeasr previously. An infective endocarditis caused by Entercoccus Faecalis was detected on his prosthetic valve. After a favorable evolution under antibiotic treatment, the patient developed a perivalvular abscess requiring surgical treatment. The patient's evolution was satisfactory. Diagnosis, with the specific role of echocardiography; treatment, with a recall of surgical indications; particularities of the specific complication and prevention of this pathology are discussed.

Heart failure constitutes a major public health problem. Its incidence continues to grow and its prognosis remains poor. Therapeutic approach of chronic heart failure with left ventricular systolic dysfunction is well codified. Recommended medical treatment is presented with the description of the different therapeutic classes. Recent advances are discussed. New therapeutic targets are described. Optimization of recognized treatment and application to heart failure of drugs used for other indications are developed. Therapeutic approach of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction is tackled but stays far less well defined. Many studies concerning treatment of acute heart failure are ongoing. [less ▲]
