Structural Heart

This structural heart channel includes news, videos, podcasts and other content related to diagnosis and treatment of structural heart disease. Topics covered include heart valve repair and replacement, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR), transcatheter tricuspid valve replacement (TTVR), left atrial appendage (LAA) occlusion, heart failure interventional device therapies, and closing holes in the heart using, including occlusion of atrial septal defects (ASDs), ventricular septal defects (VSDs) and patent foramen ovales (PFOs).

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.
