  • Contrast-Induced Acute Kidney Injury: Review and Practical Update

    • Authors: Ramez Morcos, Michael Kucharik, Pirya Bansal, Haider Al Taii, Rupesh Manam, Joel Casale, Houman Khalili, Brijeshwar Maini
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Cardiology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2019.
      Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) is an important consideration in patients undergoing cardiac catheterization. There has been a continuous strive to decrease morbidity and improve procedural safety. This review will address the pathophysiology, predictors, and clinical management of CI-AKI with a concise overview of the pathophysiology and a suggested association with left atrial appendage closure. Minimizing contrast administration and intravenous fluid hydration are the cornerstones of an effective preventive strategy. A few adjunctive pharmacotherapies hold promise, but there are no consensus recommendations on prophylactic therapies.

  • Applying the Capability, Opportunity, and Motivation Behaviour Model
           (COM-B) to Guide the Development of Interventions to Improve Early
           Detection of Atrial Fibrillation

    • Authors: Abubakar Ibrahim Jatau, Gregory M Peterson, Luke Bereznicki, Corinna Dwan, J Andrew Black, Woldesellassie M Bezabhe, Barbara C Wimmer
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Cardiology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2019.
      Objective:The primary objective of this study is to use the Capability, Opportunity, and Motivation Behaviour (COM-B) model to identify potential strategies aimed at improving the early detection of atrial fibrillation (AF) in the general population.Methods:We undertook a review of the literature to identify factors associated with participation in community-based screening for AF, followed by mapping of the factors generated into the components of the COM-B model, and validation of the model by an expert panel. The Behaviour Change Wheel (BCW) was used to nominate potential intervention strategies and steps to guide the design and implementation of community-based screening for AF.Results:A total of 28 factors from 21 studies were mapped into the COM-B model. Based on the BCW approach, 24 intervention strategies and 7 steps that could guide the design and implementation of community-based screening for AF were recommended.Conclusion:The application of the COM-B model demonstrated how factors influencing the participation of individuals with undiagnosed AF in community-based screening could be identified. The model could also serve as a guide for the design and implementation of interventions for improving AF detection in the general population.

  • The Accuracy of Combined Electrocardiogram Criteria to Diagnose Right
           Atrial Enlargement in Adults With Uncorrected Secundum Atrial Septal
           Defect

    • Authors: Purwati Pole Rio, Hariadi Hariawan, Dyah Wulan Anggrahini, Anggoro Budi Hartopo, Lucia Kris Dinarti
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Cardiology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2019.
      Background:Right atrium (RA) enlargement in uncorrected atrial septal defect (ASD) is due to chronic volume overload. Several electrocardiogram (ECG) criteria had been proposed for screening RA enlargement. This study aimed to compare the accuracy of ECG criteria in detecting RA enlargement in adults with uncorrected ASD.Methods:This was a cross-sectional study involving 120 adults with uncorrected secundum ASD. The subjects underwent ECG examination, transthoracic echocardiography, and right heart catheterization. An RA enlargement was determined with RA volume index by transthoracic echocardiography. Various ECG and combined ECG criteria were evaluated. Statistical analysis was performed to analyze the sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, positive predictive value (PPV), and negative predictive value (NPV).Results:An RA enlargement was detected in 64.2% subjects. The P wave height> 2.5 mm in lead II criterion had the best specificity (100%) and PPV (100%), but low sensitivity (19%) and accuracy (48%). The combined 2 ECG criteria (QRS axis> 90°, R/S ratio> 1 in V1) had 82% sensitivity, 56% specificity, 73% accuracy, 77% PPV, and 63% NPV. The combined 3 ECG criteria (QRS axis> 90°, R/S ratio> 1 in V1, and P wave height> 1.5 mm in V2) had 35% sensitivity, 86% specificity, 53% accuracy, 82% PPV, and 43% NPV.Conclusions:The combined 2 ECG criteria (QRS axis> 90° and R/S ratio> 1 in V1) had increased sensitivity, better accuracy, and more balance of PPV and NPV as compared with P wave> 2.5 mm in II criterion and combined 3 ECG criteria to diagnose RA enlargement in adults with uncorrected ASD.

  • Cancer Therapy-Related Cardiac Dysfunction: An Overview for the Clinician

    • Authors: Irving E Perez, Sara Taveras Alam, Gabriel A Hernandez, Rhea Sancassani
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Cardiology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2019.
      Cancer therapy-related cardiac dysfunction (CTRCD) is one of the most feared and undesirable side effects of chemotherapy, occurring in approximately 10% of the patients. It can be classified as direct (dose-dependent vs dose-independent) or indirect, either case being potentially permanent or reversible. Risk assessment, recognition, and prevention of CTRCD are crucial.

  • A Review of Randomized Controlled Trials Utilizing Telemedicine for
           Improving Heart Failure Readmission: Can a Realist Approach Bridge the
           Translational Divide'

    • Authors: Manuel Gonzalez Garcia, Farhad Fatehi, Nazli Bashi, Marlien Varnfield, Pupalan Iyngkaran, Andrea Driscoll, Christopher Neil, David L Hare, Brian Oldenburg
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Cardiology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2019.
      Background:Telemedicine and digital health technologies hold great promise for improving clinical care of heart failure. However, inconsistent and contradictory findings from randomized controlled trials have so far discouraged widespread adoption of digital health in routine clinical practice. We undertook this review study to summarize the study outcomes of the use of exploring the evidence for telemedicine in the clinical care of patients with heart failure and readmissions.Methods:We inspected the references of guidelines and searched PubMed for randomized controlled trials published over the past 10 years on the use of telemedicine for reducing readmission in heart failure. We utilized a modified realist review approach to identify the underlying contextual mechanisms for the intervention(s) in each randomized controlled trial, evaluating outcomes of the intervention and understanding how and under what conditions they worked. To provide uniformity, all extracted data were synthesized using adapted domains from the taxonomy for disease management created by the Disease Management Taxonomy Writing Group.Results:A total of 12 papers were eligible, 6 of them supporting and 6 others undermining the use of telemedicine for improving heart failure readmission. In general terms, those studies not supporting the use of telemedicine were multicentre, publicly funded, with large amount of participants, and long duration. The patients had also better rates of treatment with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors/angiotensin II receptor blocker and beta-blockers, and telemonitoring and automatic transmission of vital signs were less utilized, in comparison with the studies in which telemedicine use was supported. The analysis of the environment, intensity, content of interventions, method of communication, quality of the underlying model of care and the ability, capability, and interest from health workers can help us to envisage probabilities of success of telemedicine use.Conclusions:A realist lens may aid to understand whom and in which circumstances the use of telemedicine can add any substantial value to traditional models of care. Wider outcome criteria beyond major adverse cardiovascular events, for example, cost efficacy, should also be considered as appropriate for effecting guidelines on care delivery when robust prognostic therapeutics already exist.

  • One-Year Follow-Up Results From the Observational, Multicenter,
           Prospective, and Controlled Registry: The WALTZ All-Comers Study

      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Cardiology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2019.
      The aim of this study was to evaluate 1-year follow-up results in an all “comers” population treated with a new cobalt chromium bare-metal stent (BMS) design. Since August 2016 to March 2017, 201 (9.7% of screening population) consecutive patients undergoing coronary stent implantation in 11 centers in Argentina were prospectively included in our registry. The inclusion criteria were multiple-vessel disease and/or unprotected left main disease, acute coronary syndromes (ACS) with at least one severe (⩾70%) stenosis in any of major epicardial vessel. In-stent restenosis, protected left main stenosis, or impossibility to receive dual-antiplatelet therapy was an exclusion criterion. Major adverse cardiac events (MACE) were the primary endpoint and included cardiac death, myocardial infarction (MI), and target lesion revascularization (TLR); also, all components of the primary endpoint were separately analyzed. Completeness of revascularization was analyzed as post hoc data using residual SYNTAX or ERACI risk scores. Demographic characteristics showed that 6.5% of patients were very elderly, 22.5% have diabetes, 47% have multiple-vessel disease, 67% have ACS, and 32% have ST elevation MI. At a mean of 376 ± 18.1 days of follow-up, MACE was observed in 10.4% of patients: death + MI + cardiovascular accident (CVA) in 3% (6 of 201) and cardiac death + MI + CVA in 1.5% (3 of 201). Residual ERACI score ⩽5 was associated with 98% of event-free survival (P

      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Cardiology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2019.
      Background:Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) is a measure of atherosclerotic vascular disease and considered a comprehensive picture of all alterations caused by multiple cardiovascular risk factors over time on the arterial walls. We therefore sought to determine the CIMT of the common carotid artery in patients with CKD and to evaluate the clinical pattern and prevalence of CVD in CKD patients.Methods:A case-control study involving 100 subjects made of 50 patients with CKD stages 2 to 4 and 50 age and sex matched apparently normal individuals. Carotid intima-media thickness of the common carotid artery was considered thickened if it measured greater than 0.8 mm. All subjects had laboratory investigations, 12-lead electrocardiogram, transthoracic echocardiography, and ankle-brachial index.Results:The mean CIMT was higher in CKD population compared with controls (P

  • Self-Care Interventions That Reduce Hospital Readmissions in Patients With
           Heart Failure; Towards the Identification of Change Agents

    • Authors: SR Toukhsati, T Jaarsma, AS Babu, A Driscoll, DL Hare
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Cardiology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2019.
      Unplanned hospital readmissions are the most important, preventable cost in heart failure (HF) health economics. Current professional guidelines recommend that patient self-care is an important means by which to reduce this burden. Patients with HF should be engaged in their care such as by detecting, monitoring, and managing their symptoms. A variety of educational and behavioural interventions have been designed and implemented by health care providers to encourage and support patient self-care. Meta-analyses support the use of self-care interventions to improve patient self-care and reduce hospital readmissions; however, efficacy is variable. The aim of this review was to explore methods to achieve greater clarity and consistency in the development and reporting of self-care interventions to enable ‘change agents’ to be identified. We conclude that advancement in this field requires more explicit integration and reporting on the behaviour change theories that inform the design of self-care interventions and the selection of behaviour change techniques. The systematic application of validated checklists, such as the Theory Coding Scheme and the CALO-RE taxonomy, will improve the systematic testing and refinement of interventions to enable ‘change agent/s’ to be identified and optimised.

  • Left Main Coronary Artery Thrombus Diagnosed and Managed With Coronary
           Computed Tomography Angiography and Fractional Flow Reserve Derived From
           Computed Tomography

    • Authors: Shone O Almeida, Nasih M Ahmed, Ronald P Karlsberg
      Abstract: Clinical Medicine Insights: Cardiology, Volume 13, Issue , January-December 2019.
      Left main coronary artery thrombus (LMCA-T) is a rare disease state and diagnosed with invasive coronary angiography (ICA). We present a case of LMCA-T diagnosed with coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) and treated without ICA in a patient who presented to a hospital in the middle of war zone in Erbil, Iraqi Kurdistan. Coronary CTA performed 1 month later demonstrated resolution of the thrombus. Fractional flow reserve computed from computed tomography (FFR-CT; HeartFlow, Redwood City, CA) performed retrospectively confirmed that the clot was not hemodynamically significant at the time of diagnosis. This case demonstrates the diagnostic capabilities of coronary CTA and FFR-CT when ICA is not readily available.
