OBJECTIVE: Transapical aortic valve implantation (TA-AVI) has become a fast growing alternative to conventional aortic valve replacement (cAVR) particularly for patients burdened with serious comorbidities. We investigated whether the inflammatory response triggered by TA-AVI reflects the less invasive nature of this procedure. METHOD: In this prospective observational study 25 patients undergoing aortic valve replacement (AVR; 15 cAVR and 10 TA-AVI) were included. Serial plasma cytokine concentrations (IL-6, IL-8, and IL-10) were measured by commercially available enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay kits at six different time points before, during, and after surgery. RESULTS: Plasma levels of all three cytokines increased during and after both procedures and returned to baseline before the patient's discharge. Peak values of IL-6 were 258 ± 113 pg/mL in AVR patients versus 111 ± 101 pg/mL in TA-AVI patients and were reached 12 hours after surgery. For IL-8, peak values were 51 ± 29 pg/mL 1 hour after surgery in AVR patients versus 15 ± 20 pg/mL on wound closure in TA-AVI patients. Plasma levels of IL-6 and IL-8 were significantly reduced in the TA-AVI group as compared with cAVR. IL-10 is markedly activated in both groups yet its induction is more prominent in AVR patients with peak values of 51 ± 28 pg/mL for AVR versus 24 ± 18 pg/mL for TA-AVI on wound closure. CONCLUSION: TA-AVI compared with cAVR results in a significant reduction but not elimination of a systemic inflammatory response, which is attributable to cardiopulmonary bypass-dependent and bypass-independent factors.
