  • A joint procedural position statement on imaging in cardiac sarcoidosis:
           from the Cardiovascular and Inflammation & Infection Committees of the
           European Association of Nuclear Medicine, the European Association of
           Cardiovascular Imaging, and the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology
    • Pages: 1073 - 1089
      Abstract: AbstractThis joint position paper illustrates the role and the correct use of echocardiography, radionuclide imaging with 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography, radionuclide myocardial perfusion imaging and cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging for the evaluation and management of patients with known or suspected cardiac sarcoidosis. This position paper will aid in standardizing imaging for cardiac sarcoidosis and may facilitate clinical trials and pooling of multi-centre data on cardiac sarcoidosis. Proposed flow charts for the work up and management of cardiac sarcoidosis are included.

  • Multimodality Imaging in Restrictive Cardiomyopathies: An EACVI expert
           consensus document In collaboration with the “Working Group on
           myocardial and pericardial diseases” of the European Society of
           Cardiology Endorsed by The Indian Academy of Echocardiography
    • Authors: Habib G; Bucciarelli-Ducci C, Caforio A, et al.
      Pages: 1090 - 1121
      Abstract: AbstractRestrictive cardiomyopathies (RCMs) are a diverse group of myocardial diseases with a wide range of aetiologies, including familial, genetic and acquired diseases and ranging from very rare to relatively frequent cardiac disorders. In all these diseases, imaging techniques play a central role. Advanced imaging techniques provide important novel data on the diagnostic and prognostic assessment of RCMs. This EACVI consensus document provides comprehensive information for the appropriateness of all non-invasive imaging techniques for the diagnosis, prognostic evaluation, and management of patients with RCM.

    • Authors: Edvardsen T; Donal E, Bucciarelli-Ducci C, et al.
      Pages: 1092 - 1098
      Abstract: AbstractThe multimodality cardiovascular imaging journal, European Heart Journal—Cardiovascular Imaging, was launched in 2012. It has gained an impressive impact factor of 5.99 during its 5 first years and is now established as the most important cardiovascular imaging journal in Europe. The most important studies from the journal’s forth and fifth years will be highlighted in two reports. Part I of the review will focus on studies about myocardial function and risk prediction, myocardial ischaemia, and emerging techniques in cardiovascular imaging, while Part II will focus on valvular heart disease, heart failure, cardiomyopathies, and congenital heart disease.

  • Multi-centre study of whole-heart dynamic 3D cardiac magnetic resonance
           perfusion imaging for the detection of coronary artery disease defined by
           fractional flow reserve: gender based analysis of diagnostic performance
    • Authors: Hamada S; Gotschy A, Wissmann L, et al.
      Pages: 1099 - 1106
      Abstract: AbstractAimsCoronary artery disease (CAD) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in women and non-invasive testing for CAD in women can be more challenging than in men. This study compared the diagnostic performance of whole-heart dynamic 3D cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) stress perfusion imaging in female and male patients with quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) and fractional flow reserve (FFR) as reference tests.Methods and resultsFour hundred sixteen patients with suspected or known CAD were enrolled in five European centres. CMR imaging was performed prior to clinically indicated coronary angiography. QCA was performed in all patients and FFR in 357 of 416 patients. Whole-heart dynamic 3D CMR first-pass perfusion imaging was conducted at rest and during adenosine stress. All CMR analyses were operated by experienced investigators blinded to all clinical data. One hundred nineteen female and 297 male patients were included and successfully examined (mean age 65 ± 11 and 63 ± 11 years, respectively). FFR was performed in 106 female and 251 male patients. Sensitivity and specificity of whole-heart dynamic 3D CMR stress perfusion imaging were 89% (95% CI: 77–96) and 82% (95% CI: 70–90) in the female population and 83% (95% CI: 77–86) and 79% (95% CI: 71–86) in the male population relative to QCA (P = 0.474 and P = 0.83, P-values for comparison between genders). Sensitivity and specificity were 95% (95% CI: 82–99) and 84% (95% CI: 73–92) in the female population and 83% (95% CI: 76–89) and 82% (95% CI: 74–88) in the male population when using FFR as the reference (P = 0.134 and P = 0.936, P-values for comparison between genders). Diagnostic accuracy in females was 92% (95% CI: 85–96) and 86% (95% CI: 81–90) in males when using FFR as the reference. The prevalence of CAD as defined by FFR (<0.8) was 36% in females and 53% in males.ConclusionWhole-heart dynamic 3D CMR stress perfusion imaging has a high diagnostic accuracy for the detection of significant CAD irrespective of gender and is therefore a suitable non-invasive testing tool to detect myocardial ischaemia in both genders.

      Abstract: Ischaemia testing in women has been frustrating for decades due to their smaller hearts, smaller vessels, shielding of the cardiac signal by breast tissue in combination with the development of cardiovascular diseases later in life, which is often combined with co-morbidities and, thus, with less specific symptoms in comparison with men.1

  • The association of volumetric response and long-term survival after
           cardiac resynchronization therapy
    • Authors: Stankovic I; Belmans A, Prinz C, et al.
      Pages: 1109 - 1117
      Abstract: AbstractAimsClinical experience indicates that limited or no reverse left ventricular (LV) remodelling may not necessarily imply non-response to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). We investigated the association of the extent of LV remodelling, mechanical dyssynchrony, and survival in patients undergoing CRT.Methods and resultsIn 356 CRT candidates, three blinded readers visually assessed the presence of mechanical dyssynchrony (either apical rocking and/or septal flash) before device implantation and also its correction by CRT 12 ± 3 months post-implantation. To assess LV reverse remodelling, end-systolic volumes (ESV) were measured at the same time points. Patients were divided into four subgroups: no LV remodelling (ESV change 0 ± 5%), mild LV reverse remodelling (ESV reduction 5–15%), significant LV reverse remodelling (ESV reduction ≥15%), and LV volume expansion (ESV increase ≥5%). Patients were followed for all-cause mortality during the median follow-up of 36 months. Patients with LV remodelling as in the above defined groups showed 58, 54, and 84% reduction in all-cause mortality compared to patients with volume expansion. In multivariable analysis, LVESV change remained independently associated with survival, with an 8% reduction in mortality for every 10% decrease in LVESV (P = 0.0039), but an optimal cut-off point could not be established. In comparison, patients with corrected mechanical dyssynchrony showed 71% reduction in all-cause mortality (P < 0.001).ConclusionVolumetric response assessed at 1-year after CRT is strongly associated with long-term mortality. However, an optimal cut-off cannot be established. The association of the correction of mechanical dyssynchrony with survival was stronger than that of any volumetric cut-off.

      Pages: 1117 - 1117
      Abstract: A 59-year-old man was referred for an echocardiogram because of asymptomatic enlarged cardiac silhouette on chest radiograph (Panel A). An echocardiogram revealed a large circular echo density in the atrioventricular groove suggestive of left circumflex (LCX) coronary artery aneurysm (Panel B, LCX*, see Supplementary dataSupplementary data online, Video S1), a giant circular extra-cardiac echo density (Panel B, RCA**, see Supplementary dataSupplementary data online, Video S1) with intraluminal laminated thrombus (Panel B, white arrowheads) compressing right atrial inflow, and a cystic aneurysmal change (Panel C, RCA*, see Supplementary dataSupplementary data online, Video S2) in the proximal right coronary artery (RCA) (Panel C, black arrowheads). He had left ventricular ejection fraction of 40%. A coronary computed topographic angiogram (CCTA) demonstrated coronary aneurysms of proximal RCA (Panel D, RCA*) and mid RCA (Panel D–F, RCA**), the maximal diameter measured 110 mm with thrombus-filled lumen. Additionally, a 60-mm left anterior descending artery (LAD) aneurysm (Panel E and F, LAD*) and a 54-mm LCX aneurysm (Panel E and F, LCX*) were demonstrated. A coronary angiogram confirmed aneurysms of RCA (Panel G, see Supplementary dataSupplementary data online, Video S3), LAD, and LCX (Panel H, see Supplementary dataSupplementary data online, Video S4). Given an extremely large aneurysmal size and LV systolic dysfunction, the patient underwent coronary bypass graft surgery and aneurysmal repair and ligation.

    • Authors: Haugaa K; Edvardsen T, Smiseth O.
      Pages: 1118 - 1119
      Abstract: Clinicians want to implant those patients with cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) who can benefit from it in terms of quality of life, symptoms, and survival. Still, selection of these patients is not straight forward. We are continuously trying to improve the treatment by looking for new techniques, new parameters, new indices, to select the correct patients, to select the correct lead position and pacing site(s), to select the correct device programming and to select the correct response parameters. Among a myriad of response parameters to CRT, the reduction of end-systolic volume (ESV) is widely in use and has been used in several trials.1,2

      Pages: 1120 - 1127
      Abstract: AbstractAimsAssessment of left ventricular (LV) volumes and ejection fraction (LVEF) with cardiac imaging is important in the selection of patients for cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). Several observational studies have explored the role of imaging-derived LV dyssynchrony parameters to predict the response to CRT, but have yielded inconsistent results, precluding the inclusion of imaging-derived LV dyssynchrony parameters in current guidelines for selection of patients for CRT.MethodsThe EuroCRT is a large European multicentre prospective observational study led by the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging. We aim to explore if combing the value of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) and echocardiography could be beneficial for selecting heart failure patients for CRT in terms of improvement in long-term survival, clinical symptoms, LV function, and volumes. Speckle tracking echocardiography will be used to assess LV dyssynchrony and wasted cardiac work whereas myocardial scar will be assessed with late gadolinium contrast enhanced CMR. All data will be measured in core laboratories. The study will be conducted in European centres with known expertise in both CRT and multimodality cardiac imaging.

  • Left atrial structure and function in cardiac amyloidosis
    • Authors: Nochioka K; Quarta C, Claggett B, et al.
      Pages: 1128 - 1137
      Abstract: AbstractAimsAlthough cardiac amyloidosis (CA) is characterized by significant left atrial (LA) dilatation, the characteristics of LA function remain to be fully investigated.Methods and resultsWe assessed LA function by speckle-tracking echocardiography in 124 patients with CA and sinus rhythm: 68 with light chain (AL), 29 with mutant (ATTRm), 27 with wild-type (ATTRwt) transthyretin amyloidosis. Conventional and strain-derived parameters, including LA peak longitudinal strain (LS) and strain rate (peak LSR: reservoir function; early LSR: conduit function; late LSR: active function), were assessed compared between CA patients and 20 healthy controls of similar age and gender.All LA function phases, including LA longitudinal strain, peak LSR, early and late LSR were significantly impaired in CA compared to healthy controls after adjusting for LA size, LV ejection fraction and LV filling pressures (E/E’) (all P < 0.05). Peak LA LS was moderately correlated with LV global LS (R = −0.60, P < 0.001); late LSR was correlated with A wave at the level of LV inflow (R = −0.69, P < 0.001). Among the different CA subtypes, peak LS and LA active emptying fraction were worse in ATTRwt than AL and ATTRm [P < 0.05 after adjustment for age, sex, body mass index, systolic blood pressure, heart rate, LA volume index, severity of mitral regurgitation, left ejection fraction, and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (E/E’)].ConclusionIn CA, LA function was severely impaired and highly correlated with LV deformation. Differences in LA function between amyloid subtypes suggest that amyloid aetiology plays a role in the pathophysiology of cardiac dysfunction in CA.

  • Association of left atrial structure and function and incident
           cardiovascular disease in patients with diabetes mellitus: results from
           multi-ethnic study of atherosclerosis (MESA)
    • Authors: Markman T; Habibi M, Venkatesh B, et al.
      Pages: 1138 - 1144
      Abstract: AbstractAimsDiabetes mellitus (DM) is associated with the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Morphological changes in the left atrium (LA) may appear before symptoms. We aimed to investigate the association between cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) measured LA structure and function and incident CVD in asymptomatic individuals with DM.Methods and resultsTissue tracking CMR was used to measure LA size and phasic function (emptying fractions and strain) on all 536 Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) participants with DM and available CMR at baseline in 2000–2002. At the time of enrolment, all participants were free of clinically recognized CVD, which was defined as MI, resuscitated cardiac arrest, angina, stroke, heart failure, and atrial fibrillation. Cox regression was used to assess the association of LA parameters with incident CVD adjusted for traditional cardiovascular risk factors, LV mass, NT Pro-BNP and maximum LA volume. Kaplan–Meier curves, adjusted for traditional risk factors, were generated for each LA measurement for the 25% of participants with the most abnormal values versus the remaining 75%. After a mean follow up of 11.4 ± 3.4 years, 141 individuals developed CVD. Individuals with incident CVD (mean age 66 years, 66% male vs. mean age 64 years, 50% male) had larger maximum and minimum LA volume index (LAVI) (32.1 vs. 26.8 mm3/m2; 19.4 vs. 14.2 mm3/m2 respectively, P < 0.001 for both), and lower total, passive, and active EF than those without CVD (P < 0.01 for all). In the fully adjusted model, there was a significant association of minimum LAVI, LA total EF, LA passive EF and LA active EF with incident CVD (HR 1.12 per mm3/m2, P < 0.001; HR 0.95 per %, P < 0.001; HR 0.97 per %, P = 0.021; HR 0.98 per %, P < 0.027, respectively).ConclusionsCMR measured LA minimum volume and LA function as measured by emptying fraction are predictive of CVD in a diabetic multi-ethnic population free of any clinically recognized CVD at baseline.

  • Non-invasive management of post-partum spontaneous left main coronary
           artery dissection using cardiac computed tomography angiography
    • Authors: Shiran A; Adawi S, Rubinshtein R, et al.
      Pages: 1152 - 1152
      Abstract: A 34-year-old primigravida had chest pain and dyspnoea 2 h after an urgent cesarean section and a twin delivery. The indication for surgery was premature rupture of membranes at 32 weeks of gestation. Electrocardiogram (ECG) during chest pain showed 2-mm ST-depression in anterior leads and the Troponin T level increased to 174 ng/L (normal <13). The chest pain and ECG changes spontaneously resolved, and an echocardiogram performed later was normal. A clinical diagnosis of non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction with probable spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) was made and the patient was treated with aspirin, clopidogrel, and bisoprolol. Since the patient was stable, invasive coronary angiography was deferred and a cardiac computed tomography angiography (CCTA) was performed the following day, confirming the diagnosis of SCAD involving the left main (LM) and left anterior descending coronary arteries (A). The patient remained stable and repeat CCTA a week later was normal (B). Six-months follow-up was uneventful and an exercise test performed 2-months post-discharge was normal.

      Pages: 1186 - 1186
      Abstract: A 39 year-old man with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy and severe left ventricular (LV) systolic impairment (ejection fraction 20%) underwent cardiac computed tomography (CT) to exclude pulmonary vein stenosis for new-onset dyspnoea post-pulmonary vein isolation ablation for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. During the CT, the patient was in atrial flutter with fast ventricular response (86–120 beats/min). Given the severe LV impairment, no intravenous beta-blocker was administered and end-systolic ECG-gating (35% of R-R interval) was employed with 320-multidector array system (Aquilion one, Toshiba) after 73 mL 400 mg iodine/mL (Iomeron 400, Bracco) and 30 mL 0.9% sodium chloride at 4 mL/s via 18-gauge antecubital fossa venflon.

      Abstract: A 58-year-old female with not relevant medical history presented with chest pain few hours after an emotional distress (death of a relative). Electrocardiogram showed wide positive anterior T waves that became negative after symptoms relief following nitrate administration (Panel A). A bedside transthoracic echocardiogram showed apical left ventricular (LV) akinesia. Coronary angiography was performed, revealing a mild, smooth contour stenosis in mid left anterior descending artery (LAD) not affecting antegrade flow (Panel B, circle). Ventriculography was concordant with echocardiogram findings (Panel C).

  • A rare pathological entity of right ventricular diverticulum
    • Authors: Hirota Y; Sugimoto T, Nomura T, et al.
      Pages: 1188 - 1188
      Abstract: A 61-year-old woman underwent contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) as a preoperative examination for gastric cancer and a right ventricular outpouching was incidentally detected. She had no medical history of myocardial infraction nor myocarditis. Coronary angiography showed no significant stenosis, and no myocardial disorders were shown on myocardial scintigraphy. We used multiple imaging modalities such as CT (Panels A and B), right ventriculography (Panel C), echocardiography (Panels D–G), and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (Panels H and I). The outpouching communicated with the right ventricle (RV) at the apex through a small orifice. Due to a lack of myocardium in its wall, it exhibited no contractile function. Doppler echocardiography showed outflow from the RV on systole and inflow into the RV on diastole. We diagnosed it as a right ventricular diverticulum. We decided to regularly observe about this lesion without intervention.
