  • Echocardiographic-fluoroscopic fusion imaging for transcatheter mitral
           valve repair guidance
    • Authors: Faletra F; Pozzoli A, Agricola E, et al.
      Pages: 715 - 726
      Abstract: The echocardiographic-fluoroscopic fusion imaging is a new imaging system which has recently become available, with the proposal to facilitate catheters and device navigation during catheter-based structural heart disease interventions. Several reports have described the early developments and the first clinical experiences, but literature focusing on the practical applications of fusion imaging technology to mitral valve transcatheter interventions, and on its potential advantages and current limitations, is still limited. In this review, we, therefore, describe the role of this novel imaging system during Mitraclip, Cardioband, and paravalvular leak closure interventions. The technical principles and the fluoroscopic anatomy of the interatrial septum and mitral valve are also described.

  • Predicting deterioration of ventricular function in patients with repaired
           tetralogy of Fallot using machine learning
    • Authors: Samad M; Wehner G, Arbabshirani M, et al.
      Pages: 730 - 738
      Abstract: AimsPrevious studies using regression analyses have failed to identify which patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rTOF) are at risk for deterioration in ventricular size and function despite using common clinical and cardiac function parameters as well as cardiac mechanics (strain and dyssynchrony). This study used a machine learning pipeline to comprehensively investigate the predictive value of the baseline variables derived from cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging and provide models for identifying patients at risk for deterioration.Methods and resultsLongitudinal deterioration for 153 patients with rTOF was categorized as ‘none’, ‘minor’, or ‘major’ based on changes in ventricular size and ejection fraction between two CMR scans at least 6 months apart (median 2.7 years). Baseline variables were measured at the time of the first CMR. An exhaustive variable search with a support vector machine classifier and five-fold cross-validation was used to predict deterioration and identify the most useful variables. For predicting any deterioration (minor or major) vs. no deterioration, the mean area under the curve (AUC) was 0.82 ± 0.06. For predicting major deterioration vs. minor or no deterioration, the AUC was 0.77 ± 0.07. Baseline left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction, LV circumferential strain, and pulmonary regurgitation were most useful for achieving accurate predictions.ConclusionFor the prediction of deterioration in patients with rTOF, a machine learning pipeline uncovered the utility of baseline variables that was previously lost to regression analyses. The predictive models may be useful for planning early interventions in patients with high risk.

  • Diagnostic accuracy of postmortem computed tomography, magnetic resonance
           imaging, and computed tomography-guided biopsies for the detection of
           ischaemic heart disease in a hospital setting
    • Authors: Wagensveld I; Blokker B, Pezzato A, et al.
      Pages: 739 - 748
      Abstract: AimsThe autopsy rate worldwide is alarmingly low (0–15%). Mortality statistics are important, and it is, therefore, essential to perform autopsies in a sufficient proportion of deaths. The imaging autopsy, non-invasive, or minimally invasive autopsy (MIA) can be used as an alternative to the conventional autopsy in an attempt to improve postmortem diagnostics by increasing the number of postmortem procedures. The aim of this study was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of postmortem magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), and CT-guided biopsy for the detection of acute and chronic myocardial ischaemia.Methods and resultsWe included 100 consecutive adult patients who died in hospital, and for whom next-of-kin gave permission to perform both conventional autopsy and MIA. The MIA consists of unenhanced total-body MRI and CT followed by CT-guided biopsies. Conventional autopsy was used as reference standard. We calculated sensitivity and specificity and receiver operating characteristics curves for CT and MRI as the stand-alone test or combined with biopsy for detection of acute and chronic myocardial infarction (MI).Sensitivity and specificity of MRI with biopsies for acute MI was 0.97 and 0.95, respectively and 0.90 and 0.75, respectively for chronic MI. MRI without biopsies showed a high specificity (acute: 0.92; chronic: 1.00), but low sensitivity (acute: 0.50; chronic: 0.35). CT (total Agatston calcium score) had a good diagnostic value for chronic MI [area under curve (AUC) 0.74, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.64–0.84], but not for acute MI (AUC 0.60, 95% CI 0.48–0.72).ConclusionWe found that the combination of MRI with biopsies had high sensitivity and specificity for the detection of acute and chronic myocardial ischaemia.

  • Validation of 2-year 123I-meta-iodobenzylguanidine-based cardiac mortality
           risk model in chronic heart failure
    • Authors: Nakajima K; Nakata T, Doi T, et al.
      Pages: 749 - 756
      Abstract: AimsThe aim of this study was to validate a four-parameter risk model including 123I-meta-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) imaging, which was previously developed for predicting cardiac mortality, in a new cohort of patients with chronic heart failure (CHF).Methods and resultsClinical and outcome data were retrospectively obtained from 546 patients (age 66 ± 14 years) who had undergone 123I-MIBG imaging with a heart-to-mediastinum ratio (HMR). The mean follow-up time was 30 ± 20 months, and the endpoint was cardiac death. The mortality outcome predicted by the model was compared with actual 2-year event rates in pre-specified risk categories of three or four risk groups using Kaplan–Meier survival analysis for cardiac death and receiver-operating characteristic (ROC) analysis. Cardiac death occurred in 137 patients, including 105 (68%) patients due to heart-failure death. With a 2-year mortality risk from the model divided into three categories of low- (<4%), intermediate- (4–12%), and high-risk (>12%), 2-year cardiac mortality was 1.1%, 7.9%, and 54.7%, respectively in the validation population (P < 0.0001). In a quartile analysis, although the predicted numbers of cardiac death was comparable with actual number of cardiac death for low- to intermediate-risk groups with a mortality risk <13.8%, it was underestimated in the high-risk group with a mortality risk ≥13.8%. The ROC analysis showed that the 2-year risk model had better (P < 0.0001) diagnostic ability for predicting heart failure death than left ventricular ejection fraction, natriuretic peptides or HMR alone.ConclusionThe 2-year risk model was successfully validated particularly in CHF patients at a low to intermediate cardiac mortality risk.

  • Diagnostic accuracy and prognostic value of simultaneous hybrid
           18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance
           imaging in cardiac sarcoidosis
    • Authors: Wicks E; Menezes L, Barnes A, et al.
      Pages: 757 - 767
      Abstract: AimsCardiac death is the leading cause of mortality in patients with sarcoidosis, yet cardiac involvement often remains undetected. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) and 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-positron emission tomography (PET) have been used to diagnose cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) yet never simultaneously in a cohort. This study sought to assess the diagnostic and prognostic utility of simultaneous hybrid cardiac PET/MR.Methods and resultsFifty-one consecutive patients with suspected CS (age 50 ± 13 years, 31 males) underwent simultaneous PET/MR following a high-fat/low-carbohydrate diet and 12-h fast. Blinded image analysis of FDG uptake and late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) was performed using the American Heart Association (AHA) 16-segment model. The sensitivity and specificity of PET/MR for diagnosing CS was estimated using the Japanese Ministry of Health and Welfare guidelines. The primary endpoint was a composite of death, aborted sudden cardiac death, sustained ventricular arrhythmia, complete heart block, and hospital admission with decompensated heart failure. The secondary endpoints were a fall in left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) >10%, non-sustained ventricular tachycardia and other cardiac-related hospital admission. The prevalence of CS was 65% (n = 33). The sensitivity of PET and CMR alone for detecting CS was 0.85 and 0.82, respectively. Hybrid PET/MR was superior for detecting CS with sensitivity, specificity, positive, and negative predictive values of 0.94, 0.44, 0.76, and 0.80, respectively. There was poor inter-modality agreement for the location of cardiac abnormalities (k = 0.02). Over the median follow-up of 2.2 years, there were 18 (35%) adverse events. Cardiac RV PET abnormalities and presence of LGE were independent predictors of adverse events. Abnormalities found on both PET and magnetic resonance imaging was the strongest predictor of major adverse cardiac events.ConclusionSimultaneous PET/MR is an accurate method for diagnosing CS. FDG-PET and CMR combined offers complementary information on disease pathophysiology. The presence of LGE and FDG uptake on PET/MR identifies patients at higher risk of adverse events. PET and CMR should therefore be considered in the assessment of disease presence, stage, and prognosis in CS.

  • Right ventricular pseudoaneurysm
    • Authors: Sakaguchi T; Akagi S, Totsugawa T, et al.
      Pages: 823 - 823
      Abstract: An asymptomatic 28-year-old woman with no known significant medical history was referred to us for further evaluation because of abnormal chest radiograph findings. Echocardiography revealed an ostium secundum atrial septal defect (ASD) and right ventricular (RV) pseudoaneurysm, which were confirmed by computed tomography. The aneurysm became larger during systole (Panel A, arrowheads) and smaller during diastole (Panel B, arrowheads), due to bidirectional blood flow through its neck (see Supplementary data online, Video S1Supplementary data online, Video S1). Considering the future risk of aneurysm rupture, surgical intervention was recommended. The patient underwent a video-assisted surgical repair for the ASD and RV pseudoaneurysm via bilateral mini-thoracotomies. Intraoperatively, thickened whitish epicardial tissue was unexpectedly found covering the entire heart (Panel C), which was dissected, and the aneurysm with a thin wall was closed (Panel D). Pathohistological findings confirmed a myocardium defect in the aneurysmal wall and fibrous hypertrophy of the epicardium, consistent with an RV pseudoaneurysm and past effusive pericarditis. An earlier incident causing a remote chest contusion was confirmed later by interview.

  • Bone cement in the right heart
    • Authors: Rott C; Roithinger F, Gremmel T.
      Pages: 825 - 825
      Abstract: A 74-year-old woman underwent percutaneous vertebroplasty of the lumbar spine. During the procedure, acrylic bone cement was injected into a fractured vertebra under pressure to internally cast and thereby stabilize the vertebral bone (Panel A, upper white arrow). Following the vertebroplasty, the routine X-ray suggested a leakage of bone cement from the respective vertebra (Panel A, lower white arrow). A subsequent computed tomography revealed an uninterrupted strand of congealed bone cement extending from the vertebral bone via the vertebral vein and the inferior vena cava through the liver into the right heart (Panels B and C, white arrows). Transthoracic echocardiography showed a mobile rod-shaped structure entering the right atrium through the inferior vena cava and extending into the right ventricle (Panel D, white arrow; Supplementary material online, Videos S1Supplementary material online, Videos S1 and S2S2). The case was discussed with the Department of Cardiac Surgery, but since the patient was completely asymptomatic a conservative approach was chosen. She received therapeutic anticoagulation and remains free from any symptoms until today.

  • Papillary fibroelastoma arising from left ventricular outflow tract
    • Authors: Coats C; Reid J, Wright S, et al.
      Pages: 826 - 826
      Abstract: A 70-year-old female patient with previous transient ischaemic attacks underwent pre-operative transthoracic echocardiography for aortic stenosis. A mobile mass was incidentally noted in the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) (A). Transoesophageal echocardiography confirmed a solitary lesion near a heavily calcified aortic valve, without sub-aortic obstruction (B; Supplementary data online, Video S1Supplementary data online, Video S1). Tissue velocity imaging demonstrated the mass was attached to the basal infero-septum rather than the valve (C; Supplementary data online, Video S2Supplementary data online, Video S2). During surgery, a filamentous lesion was excised from the interventricular septum, 2 cm from the right coronary cusp of the aortic valve. Like most papillary fibroelastomas, the lesion was small (D) and resembled a ‘sea anemone’ with a gelatinous membrane and multiple papillary projections (E). Histological examination was consistent with a benign papillary fibroelastoma with avascular papillary fronds (F; H&E ×100) and elastic fibres (black) within the papillae (G; elastic MSB ×200).

  • 3D echo-fluoro fusion imaging to guide Cardioband transcatheter mitral
    • Authors: Pozzoli A; Zuber M, Taramasso M, et al.
      Pages: 827 - 827
      Abstract: The Cardioband mitral system (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, USA) is a transcatheter, surgical-like, direct annuloplasty, which is implanted beating heart, on the posterior mitral valve (MV) annulus. A polyester sleeve with radiopaque markers is inserted from commissure to commissure, by multiple anchors. Once accomplished, the Cardioband size can be reduced under transesophageal echo guidance, obtaining the mitral regurgitation (MR) reduction. Fusion imaging technology can be used to facilitate four main procedural steps, taking advantage of EchoNavigator® (Philips, Best, Netherlands) tools. A 73-year-old man presented with post-ischaemic cardiomyopathy and severe functional MR to be treated with Cardioband. EchoNavigator can be helpful to mark the trans-septal puncture site with fiducial markers (in correspondence of the postero-medial commissure, 4 cm high from MV plane), having it displayed on live fluoroscopy. Once crossed in the left atrium, atrial navigation is assisted by echo-fusion overlay, visualizing the chamber itself, and the MV annulus. This helps to reach the adequate trajectory between the tip of implant catheter and the first anchoring point, the anterolateral commissure, using 3D or X-plane (intercommissural and anteroposterior) echo overlay. Then, each anchoring site can be marked on the annulus and keeping them displayed on fluoroscopy. As a basic functionality three orthogonal 2D echo views could be helpful, enhancing localization of the anchoring site. Echo-fluoro fusion can provide more intuitive knowledge to multimodality imaging in the hybrid room, assisting intraprocedural guidance at any level of training and stages of technological development in the mitral space, due to superior orientation in 3D space.

  • Skeletal myoblast sheet transplantation enhanced regional improvement of
           cardiac function
    • Authors: Yoshida S; Miyagawa S, Toda K, et al.
      Pages: 828 - 829
      Abstract: Due to several complications involving left ventricular assist device use and insufficient donors for heart transplantation for advanced cardiac failure treatment, regenerative therapy has been extensively studied. Autologous skeletal myoblast sheet transplantation improved left ventricular ejection fraction and exercise tolerability in 70% of advanced ischaemic cardiomyopathy patients (Miyagawa et al. 2017, Journal of American Heart Association). Transplanted sheets secret various cytokines (e.g. hepatocyte growth factor and vascular endothelial growth factor), which induce angiogenesis, resulting in functional recovery. However, it is unknown whether these secreted cytokines, regionally or globally, affect cardiac performance. We performed quantitative evaluation of left ventricular wall motion in each region using a dedicated workstation (Ziostation2, ZIO, Japan) with 320-slice cardiac computed tomographic images in a 25-year-old woman with symptomatic ischaemic cardiomyopathy showing 20% ejection fraction despite full revascularization and medication. Five sheets (3 cm in diameter) consisting of 3 × 108 myoblasts/sheet were transplanted anterior to the lateral wall. Post-operative cardiac function, particularly anterior to the lateral wall, improved to 37% ejection fraction by the second year. The moving distance between diastolic and systolic phase is displayed with colour scale in images of 3D reconstruction (Panel A) and short-axis view of left ventricle (Panel B) (Supplementary dataSupplementary data online, Videos S1–S8). We placed 20 volumes of interest (VOIs) on the left ventricular myocardium according to 20-segment model in vertical long-axis view (Panel C, left) and short-axis view (right) of LV. The top panels show six VOIs on basal myocardium, the second from the top shows six VOIs on mid myocardium, the third from the top shows six VOIs on mid-apical myocardium, and the bottom panels show two VOIs on apical myocardium. Then we calculated the moving distances of VOIs and 20 segments in bull's eye are coloured according to moving distance of each VOI from <1.9 (white) to ≥8.0 (green) mm (Panel D). The area framed by a red broken line represents the region in which skeletal myoblast sheet transplanted. The left, middle, and right panels display the bull's eye before the myoblast sheet transplantation, 1, and 2 years after the surgery, respectively. As a result, the moving distances of VOIs under the transplanted area increased remarkably, and those out of the transplanted area increased slightly after one year. This indicated that the myocardium with viability under the transplanted sheets greatly benefited from the paracrine effect, and that the sheets had a modest effect even on the myocardium remote from the transplant site.
