Devices for managing Heart Failure - Prof Francisco Leyva
 
03:14
Cardio Debate talks to Prof Francisco Leyva from Aston University, Birmingham, UK, about his presentation in the Heart Failure section during the Cardiology Update 2016 meeting, organised by St George's, University of London on the 2nd December 2016 at the RSA in London, UK. For more interviews please visit www.cardio-debate.com -TRANSCRIPT- What were the key messages in your speech today? I concentrated on the incidence of sudden cardiac death in patients with heart failure, and the role of device therapy in patients with heart failure. The recent Defibrillator Implantation in Patients with Nonischaemic Systolic Heart failure (DANISH) study [1], which concentrated on patients with nonischaemic cardiomyopathy has shown that there is no benefit from adding defibrillator therapy in patients with heart failure and nonischaemic cardiomyopathy. Now this has led to a lot of questions because the current indications are there, both in terms of UK guidelines, NICE guidelines and European guidelines. But it’s important really to appreciate that the DANISH trial may have been underpowered to answer that question. It dealt with just under 1100 patients, and we know that with a meta-analysis we need about 14,000 patients to demonstrate a beneficial role of ICDs in patients with noniscaemic cardiomyopathy. There are other aspects, of course, in that nonischaeimic cardiomyopathies can be very varied – can be valvular, can be hypertensive, can have scar or no scar, and they have different rates of sudden cardiac death. So one noniscaemic cardiomyopathy can be very different from another. So I have gone through some various data sets in order to show that, and I think that further studies will be needed, because it is likely that the guideline groups will take notice of the excellent DANISH study, but it is not the definitive answer. I also reviewed some of the evidence for remote monitoring in heart failure. These are monitors within cardiac devices, defibrillators and CRT devices, and largely they’ve not shown to be of benefit in terms of hard end points – mortality and morbidity. However I think they are of definite benefit to patients. I do wonder whether the heard end points are the right way to measure the effect, because effectively a remote monitor is a diagnostic adjunct and it’s always difficult to demonstrate a mortality benefit from a diagnostic tool. I also touch upon some of the studies on device therapy using quadripolar leads, which are now a standard of care in most centres, and really have been shown to be of benefit to most patients, and to virtually eliminate the need to bring patients back for the repositioning of left ventricular leads.

Commissioning through evaluation for LAAO in England

Dhiraj Gupta (Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital, Liverpool, UK) discusses NHS England's commissioning through evaluation for left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO). This programme is designed to enable a limited number of patients to receive LAAO, a procedure that is not routinely funded by the NHS in England. Gupta raises concerns about the number of patients that will be left without treatment in the upcoming months as the programme is due to enter its "assessment phase", which means no more funding will be given until NHS England decides whether or not the procedure becomes routinely funded. The interview took place at the Heart Rhythm Congress (9‒12 October, Birmingham, UK).

Marco Proietti, EHRA 2018 – the Risk of Oral Anticoagulants and NSAIDs
 
04:29
Marco Proietti (Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences, University of Birmingham, Birmingham) discusses the SPORTIF Trials and their aim to investigate and compare ximelagatran, the first non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulant, with warfarin in patients with atrial fibrillation. The trial was stopped and the drug never commercialised due to adverse liver events, however there is still a lot of data from the randomised controlled trials in the warfarin arm. Dr Proietti discusses the potential for additional and subgroup analysis performed on this data, particularly his work to identify the potential for bleeding risk and adverse bleeding events in patients with atrial fibrillation and bad anticoagulation control who regularly take a number of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
