Abstract :
[en] Valvular heart disease (VHD) is common and poses important challenges from the standpoints of diagnosis and therapeutic management. Clinical practice guidelines have been developed to help health care professionals to overcome these challenges and provide optimal management to patients with VHD. The American College of Cardiology, in collaboration with the American Heart Association, and the European Society of Cardiology, in collaboration with the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, recently updated their guidelines on the management of VHD. Although these 2 sets of guidelines are generally concordant, there are some substantial differences between these guidelines, which may have significant implications for clinical practice. This review prepared on behalf of the EuroValve Consortium describes the consistencies and discrepancies between the guidelines and highlights the gaps in these guidelines and the future research perspectives to fill these gaps.
