  • Focus on echovascular imaging assessment of arterial disease: complement
           to the ESC guidelines (PARTIM 1) in collaboration with the Working Group
           on Aorta and Peripheral Vascular Diseases
    • Authors: Sprynger M; Rigo F, Moonen M, et al.
      Pages: 1195 - 1221
      Abstract: The main goal of the present document is to provide a set of practical recommendations for ultrasound imagers who are interested in artery diseases or for physicians who intend to undertake vascular procedures. This is the first part of the work. It is dedicated to general principles of ultrasonography, cervicoencephalic, subclavian, aortoiliac and lower extremity arteries, abdominal aorta, and popliteal aneurysms. It also discusses miscellaneous items such as medial arterial calcinosis, arterial embolism, arteritis, arterial stents and bypasses, false aneurysms, aortic dissection, popliteal entrapment syndrome, and iliac endofibrosis.

           Part II
    • Authors: Edvardsen T; Haugaa K, Gerber B, et al.
      Pages: 1222 - 1229
      Abstract: European Heart Journal – Cardiovascular Imaging was launched in 2012 as a multimodality cardiovascular imaging journal. It has gained an impressive impact factor of 8.366 during its first 5 years and is now established as one of the top 10 cardiovascular journals and has become the most important cardiovascular imaging journal in Europe. The most important studies from 2017 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.

           stenosis
    • Authors: Ihdayhid A; Sakaguchi T, Linde J, et al.
      Pages: 1234 - 1243
      Abstract: AimsTo compare the diagnostic performance of a reduced-order computed tomography-derived fractional flow reserve (CT-FFR) technique derived from luminal deformation and static CT stress myocardial perfusion (CTP).Methods and resultsForty-six patients (84 vessels) with suspected coronary artery disease from a single institution planned for elective coronary angiography prospectively underwent research indicated invasive fractional flow reserve (FFR) and 320-detector CT coronary angiography (CTA) and static CTP. Analyses were performed in separate blinded core laboratories for CT-FFR and CTP. CT-FFR was derived using a reduced-order model with dedicated software on a standard desktop computer. CTP was assessed visually and quantitatively by transmural perfusion ratio (TPR). Invasive FFR was significant in 33% (28/84) of vessels. Overall per-vessel sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value, and diagnostic accuracy for CT-FFR were 81%, 84%, 71%, 90%, and 83%, respectively, those of visual CTP were 54%, 92%, 79%, 77%, and 78%, respectively, and TPR were 64%, 48%, 42%, 70%, and 54%, respectively. Per-vessel receiver operator curve analysis demonstrated a significantly larger area under the curve (AUC) for CT-FFR (0.89) with that for visual CTP (0.72; P = 0.016), TPR (0.55; P < 0.0001), and CTA (0.76; P = 0.04). The addition of CT-FFR to CTA provided superior improvement in performance (AUC 0.93; P < 0.0001) compared with CTA alone, a combination of CTA with visual CTP (AUC 0.82; P = 0.007) and CTA with TPR (AUC 0.78; P = 0.0006).ConclusionBased on this selected cohort of patients, a reduced-order CT-FFR technique is superior to visual and quantitatively assessed static CTP in detecting haemodynamically significant coronary stenosis as assessed by invasive FFR.

      Abstract: AimsTo compare the diagnostic accuracy of stress computed tomography myocardial perfusion (CTP) for the detection of significant coronary artery disease with visual approach vs. quantitative analysis with transmural perfusion ratio (TPR) in consecutive symptomatic patients scheduled for invasive coronary angiography (ICA) plus invasive fractional flow reserve (FFR).Methods and resultsEighty-eight consecutive symptomatic patients underwent rest coronary computed tomography angiography (cCTA) followed by static stress-CTP. Diagnostic accuracy of cCTA + stress-CTP with visual evaluation and with TPR measurement was calculated and compared with ICA and invasive FFR. Addition of stress-CTP with qualitative evaluation to rest-cCTA showed sensitivity, specificity, negative and positive predictive values, and accuracy at a vessel and patient level of 92%, 92%, 97%, 82%, 92% and 98%, 80%, 97%, 82%, 89%, respectively indicating a significant improvement of specificity, positive predictive value, and accuracy values vs. rest-cCTA in both models. Similarly, addition of stress-CTP with TPR evaluation to rest-cCTA showed sensitivity, specificity, negative and positive predictive values, and accuracy at a vessel and patient level of 84%, 90%, 93%, 76%, 88% and 91%, 71%, 89%, 75%, 81%, respectively indicating a significant improvement of specificity, positive predictive value values vs. rest-cCTA only in a vessel-based model and of positive predictive value in a patient-based model. When cCTA + stress-CTP with qualitative evaluation was compared with cCTA + stress-CTP with TPR estimation, no differences were found in terms of diagnostic performance.ConclusionThe addition of stress-CTP with visual evaluation to cCTA imaging has similar diagnostic performance when compared with the quantitative analysis of myocardial perfusion based on TPR measurement.

      Pages: 1252 - 1252
      Abstract: An 84-year-old man with a Sievers Type 1 (left-non-raphe) bicuspid aortic valve (Panel A) underwent transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) with an Evolut R transcatheter aortic valve (TAV) (Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN, USA). Following the procedure, the patient was noted to have a Grade 3 ejection systolic murmur and a Grade 4 ‘fluttering’ decrescendo diastolic murmur. Transthoracic echocardiography demonstrated an elevated aortic valve gradient (peak velocity 2.9 m/s, mean gradient 17 mmHg) and mild transvalvular aortic regurgitation with 25 Hz striations (Panels B and C, Supplementary data online, Videos S1Supplementary data online, Videos S1 and S2S2).

  • Left ventricular function and contractile reserve in patients with
           hypertension
    • Authors: Fung M; Thomas L, Leung D.
      Pages: 1253 - 1259
      Abstract: AimsAn impaired contractile reserve (CR) may be an early manifestation of left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction in hypertensive patients. Using normotensive patients as controls, we examined LV CR and its correlates in hypertensive patients.Methods and resultsOne hundred and twenty-nine (68 men, aged 58.6 ± 9.5 years, 73 had hypertension) patients underwent dobutamine echocardiography. Patients with significant coronary or valvular disease, previous myocardial infarction or revascularization, and diabetes were excluded. LV ejection fraction (LVEF), global longitudinal strain (GLS), circumferential, and radial strain were measured at rest and at low-dose dobutamine. Absolute CR was calculated as the difference in LVEF and multi-directional strain between low-dose dobutamine and their corresponding resting values. Relative CR is the ratio of absolute CR to their corresponding resting values. Hypertensive patients, compared with controls, have significantly impaired GLS at rest (−16.8 ± 2.2% vs. −19.6 ± 1.5%, P < 0.0001) and at low-dose dobutamine (−17.9 ± 2.7% vs. −22.8 ± 2.6%, P < 0.0001). Absolute and relative GLS CR were significantly lower in hypertensive patients (−1.1 ± 2.1% vs. −3.2 ± 2.2% and 7.4 ± 13.9% vs. 16.4 ± 11.7%, respectively, both P < 0.001). Circumferential strain was preserved at rest but impaired at low-dose dobutamine in hypertensive patients (−23.0 ± 4.1% vs. −25.2 ± 3.4%, P = 0.002). There were no differences in LVEF or radial strain between the groups. LV wall thickness and systolic blood pressure correlated significantly with GLS at rest and at low-dose dobutamine. LV wall thickness is the only independent correlates of absolute CR.ConclusionCompared with controls, hypertensive patients have impaired LV GLS at rest and impaired CR despite normal LVEF. Impaired CR correlated with LV wall thickness but independent of prevailing blood pressure.

  • Long-term prognostic value of single-photon emission computed tomography
           myocardial perfusion imaging after primary PCI for STEMI
    • Authors: Smit J; Hermans M, Dimitriu-Leen A, et al.
      Pages: 1287 - 1293
      Abstract: AimsThe aim of this study was to determine the long-term prognostic value of infarct size and myocardial ischaemia on single-photon emission computed tomography myocardial perfusion imaging (SPECT MPI) after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).Methods and resultsIn total, 1092 STEMI patients who underwent primary PCI and SPECT MPI within 1–6 months were included (median follow-up time of 6.9 years). In the entire cohort, SPECT infarct size was independently associated with the composite of cardiac death or reinfarction [hazard ratio (HR) per 10% increase in summed rest score 1.33; 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 1.12–1.58; P = 0.001], whereas myocardial ischaemia was not (HR per 5% increase in summed difference score 1.18; 95% CI 0.94–1.48; P = 0.16). Addition of SPECT infarct size to a model including the clinical variables provided significant incremental prognostic value for the prediction of cardiac death or reinfarction (global χ2 13.8 vs. 24.2; P = 0.002), whereas addition of SPECT ischaemia did not add significantly (global χ2 24.2 vs. 25.6; P = 0.24). In the subgroup of patients with left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) ≤ 45%, SPECT infarct size was independently associated with cardiac death or reinfarction (HR 1.59; 95% CI 1.15–2.22; P = 0.006), whereas in patients with LVEF > 45%, only SPECT ischaemia was independently associated with cardiac death or reinfarction (HR 1.28; 95% CI 1.00–1.63; P = 0.050).ConclusionIn patients with first STEMI and primary PCI, SPECT infarct size was independently associated with cardiac death and/or reinfarction, whereas myocardial ischaemia was not. In patients with LVEF ≤ 45%, SPECT infarct size was independently associated with cardiac death or reinfarction, whereas myocardial ischaemia was not. Conversely, in patients with LVEF > 45%, only SPECT ischaemia was independently associated with cardiac death or reinfarction.

  • Vascular response to percutaneous coronary intervention with
           biodegradable-polymer vs. new-generation durable-polymer drug-eluting
           stents: a meta-analysis of optical coherence tomography imaging trials
    • Authors: Cassese S; Xhepa E, Ndrepepa G, et al.
      Pages: 1294 - 1301
      Abstract: AimsWhether biodegradable-polymer drug-eluting stents (BP-DES) induce a vascular response at follow-up more favourable than that of new-generation durable-polymer drug-eluting stents (DP-DES) remains controversial. We sought to evaluate the vascular response to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with BP-DES vs. new-generation DP-DES as assessed by optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging at follow-up.Methods and resultsWe undertook a meta-analysis of aggregate data by searching electronic scientific databases for investigations of PCI-patients receiving BP-DES vs. new-generation DP-DES and OCT imaging at follow-up. The primary outcome was neointima hyperplasia (NIH) thickness. The co-primary outcome was the incidence of lesions with uncovered struts. The main secondary outcome was the incidence of lesions with malapposed struts. Among 10 trials, a total of 544 PCI-patients were assigned to BP-DES (n = 282) or new-generation DP-DES (n = 262). Of these, 447 participants with 480 treated lesions had analysable OCT imaging at a weighted median follow-up of 7 months. Lesions treated with BP-DES vs. new-generation DP-DES showed comparable NIH thickness [weighted mean difference 95% confidence intervals (CI)  = −11.37 (−29.25, 6.52); P = 0.21]. However, thick-struts (>100 μm) BP-DES showed less NIH thickness as compared to new-generation DP-DES [−20.39 (−33.83, −6.95); P = 0.003]. BP-DES vs. new-generation DP-DES showed a higher risk for uncovered struts [odds ratio 95% CI = 3.50 (1.69–7.26); P = 0.0008] and a trend towards higher risk for malapposed struts [2.01 (0.98–4.12); P = 0.06].ConclusionIn PCI-patients with available OCT imaging at follow-up, BP-DES with thicker backbones delay vascular response as compared with new-generation DP-DES.

  • The pulmonary embolism that wasn’t: a case of pulmonary
           pseudosequestration
    • Authors: Acharya T; Patricia Bandettini W, Arai A, et al.
      Pages: 1310 - 1310
      Abstract: A 68-year-old male patient was referred for coronary CT angiogram (CCTA) to evaluate an episode of non-anginal chest pain. He had a 10-year history of anticoagulation for pulmonary embolism based on multiple ventilation perfusion scans (V/Q scans) showing persistent V/Q mismatch. CCTA showed non-obstructive coronary disease but also found an incidental worm-like plexus of arterial vessels posterior to the left atrium (Panel A). On further investigation of the arterial plexus as a potential cause for the V/Q mismatch, a dedicated contrast CT scan of the chest demonstrated a small left lung (Panel B). The descending branch of the left pulmonary artery was absent on contrast CT and contrast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) angiography (Panel D, red arrowhead). A large plexus of arterial vessels originating from the coeliac trunk supplied the lower lobe of the left lung (Panel B). Decreased contrast density was noted in the left pulmonary veins due to increased transit time via the systemic arterial network (Panel C). The tracheobronchial tree was normal. First pass contrast perfusion MRI revealed significantly delayed perfusion to the left lower lung consistent with supply in the systemic arterial phase, thus explaining the V/Q mismatch (Panel E, pulmonary arterial phase; Panel F, systemic arterial phase; see Supplementary materialSupplementary material online, Video). CCTA and downstream evaluation led to the correct diagnosis of pulmonary pseudosequestration—a congenital anomaly. This allowed discontinuation of inappropriate anticoagulation which might help avoid potential bleeding complications. This case highlights the importance of non-cardiac findings on CCTA and pursuing alternate plausible diagnoses for V/Q mismatch.

  • Novel echocardiographic method to assess left ventricular chamber
           stiffness and elevated end-diastolic pressure based on time–velocity
           integral measurements of pulmonary venous and transmitral flows
    • Authors: Okada K; Kaga S, Abiko R, et al.
      Pages: 1260 - 1267
      Abstract: AimsThe detection of increased left ventricular (LV) chamber stiffness may play an important role in assessing cardiac patients with potential but not overt heart failure. A non-invasive method to estimate it is not established. We investigated whether the echocardiographic backward/forward flow volume ratio from the left atrium (LA) during atrial contraction reflects the LV chamber stiffness.Methods and resultsWe studied 62 patients who underwent cardiac catheterization and measured their left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP) and pressure increase during atrial contraction (ΔPa) from the LV pressure waveform. Using the echocardiographic biplane method of disks, we measured the LV volume change during atrial contraction indexed to the body surface area (ΔVa), and ΔPa/ΔVa was calculated as a standard for the LV operating chamber stiffness. Using pulsed Doppler echocardiography, we measured the time–velocity integral (TVI) of the backward pulmonary venous (PV) flow during atrial contraction (IPVA) and the ratio of IPVA to the PV flow TVI throughout a cardiac cycle (FPVA). We also measured the TVI of the atrial systolic forward transmitral flow (IA) and the ratio of the IA to the transmitral TVI during a cardiac cycle (FA) and calculated IPVA/IA and FPVA/FA. IPVA/IA and FPVA/FA were well correlated with ΔPa/ΔVa (r = 0.79 and r = 0.81) and LVEDP (r = 0.73 and r = 0.77). The areas under the ROC curve to discriminate LVEDP >18 mmHg were 0.90 for IPVA/IA and 0.93 for FPVA/FA.ConclusionThe FPVA/FA, the backward/forward flow volume ratio from the LA during atrial contraction, is useful for non-invasive assessments of LV chamber stiffness and elevated LVEDP.

  • Appropriate choice of stress modality in patients undergoing myocardial
           perfusion scintigraphy with a cardiac camera equipped with solid-state
           detectors: the role of diabetes mellitus
    • Authors: Gimelli A; Liga R, Clemente A, et al.
      Pages: 1268 - 1275
      Abstract: AimsTo evaluate the impact of diabetes mellitus (DM) on the accuracy of myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) in detecting coronary artery disease (CAD).Methods and resultsTwo hundred and sixteen patients with DM and 432 matched controls were submitted to MPS on a dedicated cardiac camera equipped with cadmium–zinc–telluride (CZT) detectors and coronary angiography. Exercise stress was performed in 442 (68%) patients, while the remainders underwent vasodilator stress. Exercise level was determined as the percentage of the predicted maximal workload that was attained (%Wattmax). The summed difference score was derived from CZT images. A coronary stenosis >70% was considered obstructive. The prevalence of obstructive CAD was 59.7% in patients with DM and 56.2% in controls (P = NS). The accuracy of MPS in detecting CAD was similar in patients with and without DM [area under the ROC curve (AUC) 0.77 vs. 0.78, P = NS]. An interaction between the accuracy of MPS and cardiac stress-protocol was revealed. In fact, in patients with DM exercise stress CZT had a lower accuracy than vasodilator-stress (AUC 0.70 vs. 0.89, P < 0.001), because of a lower specificity (45% vs. 69%), while in the control group the accuracy of MPS was similar regardless of the stress-protocol adopted. Patients with DM attained a significantly lower %Wattmax during exercise than controls (76 ± 27% vs. 82 ± 26%, P = 0.038), which resulted an independent predictor of reduced specificity (P = 0.026).ConclusionThe accuracy of CZT imaging in patients with DM is elevated, and it is quite comparable to the one obtained in patients without DM. However, a reduced specificity can be expected in the case of exercise stress CZT, because of an impaired exercise capacity.

  • Diabetes as an independent predictor of left ventricular longitudinal
           strain reduction at rest and during dobutamine stress test in patients
           with significant coronary artery disease
    • Authors: Wierzbowska-Drabik K; Trzos E, Kurpesa M, et al.
      Pages: 1276 - 1286
      Abstract: AimsDiabetes (DM) is a strong cardiovascular risk factor modifying also the left ventricular (LV) function that may be objectively assessed with echocardiographic strain analysis. Although the impact of isolated DM on myocardial deformation has been already studied, few data concern diabetics with coronary artery disease (CAD), especially in all stages of dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE). We compared LV systolic function during DSE in CAD with and without DM using state-of-the art speckle-tracking quantification and assessed the impact of DM on LV systolic strain.Methods and resultsDSE was performed in 250 patients with angina who afterwards had coronarography with ≥50% stenosis in the left main artery and ≥70% in other arteries considered as significant. In this analysis, we included 127 patients with confirmed CAD: 42 with DM [DM(+); mean age 64 ± 9 years] and 85 patients without DM [DM(−); mean age 63 ± 9 years]. The severity of CAD and LV ejection fraction (EF) were similar in both groups. Global and regional LV peak systolic longitudinal strain (PSLS) revealed in all DSE phases lower values in DM(+) group: 14.5 ± 3.6% vs. 17.4 ± 4.0% at rest; P = 0.0001, 13.8 ± 3.9% vs. 16.7 ± 4.0% at peak stress; P = 0.0002, and 14.2 ± 3.1% vs. 15.5 ± 3.5% at recovery; P = 0.0432 for global parameters, although dobutamine challenge did not enhance further resting differences. LV EF, body surface area, and diabetes were independent predictors for strain in 16-variable model (R2 = 0, 51, P < 0.001).ConclusionPSLS although diminished in both groups with CAD was lower in diabetics at all DSE stages, and DM was an independent predictor of this impairment. However, the dobutamine challenge did not deepen the resting differences, suggesting that the direct impact of coronary stenoses effaces the influence of DM during DSE. The comparison with our previous data revealed synergistic, detrimental effect of coexisting CAD and DM on myocardial strain.

  • Extrinsic compression of left main coronary artery by aneurysmal pulmonary
           artery in severe pulmonary hypertension: its correlates, clinical impact,
           and management strategies
    • Authors: Akbal O; Kaymaz C, Tanboga I, et al.
      Pages: 1302 - 1308
      Abstract: AimsAlthough left main coronary artery (LMCA) compression (Co) by pulmonary artery (PA) aneurysm (A) has been reported in some pulmonary hypertension (PH) series, clinical importance and management of this complication remain to be determined. In this single-centre prospective study, we evaluated correlates, clinical impact, and management strategies of LMCA-Co in patients with PH.Methods and resultsOur study group comprised 269 (female 166, age 52.9 ± 17.3 years) out of 498 patients with confirmed PH who underwent coronary angiography (CA) because of the PAA on echocardiography, angina or incidentally detected LMCA-Co during diagnostic evaluation with multidetector computed tomography. The LMCA-Co ≥ 50% was documented in 22 patients (8.2%) who underwent CA, and stenosis were between 70% and 90% in 14 of these. Univariate comparisons revealed that a younger age, a D-shaped septum, a higher PA systolic, diastolic, and mean pressures and pulmonary vascular resistance, a larger PA diameter, a smaller aortic diameter and pulmonary arterial hypertension associated with patent-ductus arteriosus, atrial or ventricular septal defects were significantly associated with LMCA-Co. Bare-metal stents were implanted in 12 patients and 1 patient underwent PAA and atrial septal defect surgery and another one declined LMCA stenting procedure.ConclusionOur study demonstrates that LMCA-Co is one of the most important and potentially lethal complications of severe PH, and alertness for this risk seems to be necessary in specific circumstances related with PAA. However, long-term benefit from stenting in this setting remains as a controversy.
