There is a trend in interventional cardiology that is now being called “renalism,” where patients with poor renal function are being excluded from interventional procedures because they are automatically considered too high risk. However, some hospitals are also creating cardio-renal care teams so these patients can be cared for by a team of experts rather than interventional cardiologists going it alone. #SCAI21 #SCAI2021 Creating a card0-renal program.

Explaining the Emory TMVR angle. Discordance between mitral annular centerline (yellow lines) and valve orientation imposed by guidewire position within the LV apex (red dashed lines). (B) Valve intrinsic angle (α) is determined by external skirt height. (C) When annular-apical “Emory” angle (red curves) exceeds α (blue curve), annular skirt apposition is not possible, causing PVL (red arrows). (D) The valve is oriented perpendicular to the annual plane using an exteriorized apical guidewire.
