Excerpt

An 85-year-old male with severe aortic stenosis who had been on dialysis for 5 years was admitted to our hospital for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Echocardiography revealed severe aortic stenosis with a maximum flow velocity of 4.5 m/s, an aortic mean pressure gradient of 52 mmHg, and an aortic valve area of 0.57 cm2. The patient had a Society of Thoracic Surgeons risk score of 12.0%. Based on preprocedural computed tomography analysis, we planned to implant a Sapien3 26 mm valve (Edwards Life Sciences, Irvine, CA, USA) with access from the right femoral artery. …

Keynote webinar | Spotlight on medication adherence

Medication non-adherence is a major barrier to effective healthcare delivery; half of all patients do not follow their doctor’s recommendations or treatment plan.

Our experts explain the fundamentals with a practical discussion of how to manage non-adherence in two common scenarios: hypertension and asthma control.
