Sleep-disordered breathing has a prevalence of 30~80% in patients with heart diseases. Various studies have revealed a correlation between the incidence and various diseases such as heart failure, hypertension, diabetes, and cerebral infarction. Postoperative acute kidney injury after heart surgery is one of the major complications with incidence with 40~50%, however, there has been no preventive method or treatment yet. Recently, several studies have been published that have shown a correlation between sleep-disordered breathing and renal impairment. In general, sleep-disordered breathing can be regulated easily with continues positive expiratory pressure, which means that early diagnosis and treatment of sleep-disordered breathing might help to reduce the incidence of postoperative acute kidney injury and improve patients' prognosis.
In this study, the investigators investigate the impact of sleep-disordered breathing (diagnosed by oxygen desaturation index ≥15) on the incidence of postoperative acute kidney injury in patients undergoing valvular heart surgery.

Valvular heart disease (VHD) is becoming more and more frequent with the aging, which has brought a heavy burden to the world. However, the prevalence and prognosis of valvular heart disea...
The prevalence of valvular heart disease is on the rise along with the aging society and the generalization of echocardiography. Furthermore, the rheumatic valvular heart disease is much m...
Patients undergoing transcatheter valvular interventions will be prospectively included into the present registry. Baseline, procedural and follow-up data will be collected and analyzed to...
The ability to quantify flow directly using through-plane phase contrast velocity mapping is a unique advantage of cardiovascular magnetic resonance and does not rely on the calculation fr...
By bioelectrical impedance spectroscopy (BIS) association of fluid status in patients with valvular heart disease and cardiovascular outcome will be assessed.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia. Patients with valvular heart disease (VHD) frequently have AF. Growing evidence demonstrates that a specifically altered pattern of microRNA (mi...
Modifiable risk factors for valvular heart disease remain largely unknown, which limits prevention and treatment.
Current guidelines endorse the use of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). However, little is known about their safety and efficacy in valvul...
Significant coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients undergoing valvular heart surgery (VHS) is an indication for combined valvular heart surgery and coronary artery bypass grafting. However, the imp...
The acute valvular dysfunction is a rapidly growing and critical condition in the intensive care unit with a cardiogenic shock as the most serious clinical entity. There are clearly defined guidelines...
Cardiac manifestation of systemic rheumatological conditions, such as RHEUMATIC FEVER. Rheumatic heart disease can involve any part the heart, most often the HEART VALVES and the ENDOCARDIUM.
Disease-related laceration or tearing of tissues of the heart, including the free-wall MYOCARDIUM; HEART SEPTUM; PAPILLARY MUSCLES; CHORDAE TENDINEAE; and any of the HEART VALVES. Pathological rupture usually results from myocardial infarction (HEART RUPTURE, POST-INFARCTION).
Diseases characterized by pathological irregularities in the HEART CONDUCTION SYSTEM. They may be associated with other heart diseases and syndromes (e.g., BRUGADA SYNDROME; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASE, HEART BLOCKS), isolated or may result from injuries. You can have a conduction disorder without having an arrhythmia, but some arrhythmias arise from conduction disorders. OMIM: 601144.
The hemodynamic and electrophysiological action of the left HEART VENTRICLE. Its measurement is an important aspect of the clinical evaluation of patients with heart disease to determine the effects of the disease on cardiac performance.
Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.
Sleep disorders disrupt sleep during the night, or cause sleepiness during the day, caused by physiological or psychological factors. The common ones include snoring and sleep apnea, insomnia, parasomnias, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, circa...
