When performing percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) closure, challenges arise that impact clinical outcomes and cardiac computed tomography (CCT)- based patient-specific computational simulations provide device-host interactions. In this touchCARDIO interview, we speak with Dr Ole De Backer (Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen University Hospital, Copenhagen, Denmark) to discuss these challenges and the use of cardiac computed tomography (CCT)- based patient-specific computational simulations in LAA closure to combat these.
The abstract entitled ‘The Value of FEops HEARTguide™ Computational Modeling in the Planning of Percutaneous LAA Closure: The PREDICT LAA Trial’ was presented at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) conference, 16 – 19, September 2022.

Gregg Stone, ACC 2023: Transcatheter edge-to-edge repair for functional mitral regurgitation in heart failure
Transcatheter edge-to-edge repair (TEER) is a minimally invasive procedure that can effectively treat functional mitral regurgitation in heart failure patients. Compared to traditional surgical approaches, TEER offers benefits such as reduced hospital stay, lower risk of bleeding and infection, and faster recovery time. Additionally, TEER has been found to improve symptoms and quality of life […]

The COAPT trial investigated the use of the MitraClip a novel device for patients with secondary mitral regurgitation, a condition in which blood leaks backward through the mitral valve into the left atrium of the heart. In this touchCARDIO interview Dr Gregg Stone (Mount Sinai Heart Health System, New York City, NY, USA) discusses the […]

The guidelines for the use of short-term dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) after coronary intervention vary depending on the patient’s clinical situation and the type of intervention performed. In this touchCARDIO interview, we speak with Prof. Hyo-Soo Kim (Department of Internal Medicine, Seoul National University Hospital, Seoul, South Korea) to discuss the current guidelines for the […]
