  • Novel Aspects of Classification, Prognosis and Therapy in Takotsubo

    • Authors: mehul
      Abstract: Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) is a transient form of acute heart failure that mimics an acute coronary syndrome (ACS), with comparable acute adverse outcome.1 Many hypotheses have been formulated, but the pathophysiology of TTS is still not fully understood. Recently, it was demonstrated that specific alterations in neurological response and sympathetic activation after emotional stimuli are present in TTS patients.

  • Troponins, Acute Coronary Syndrome and Renal Disease: From Acute Kidney

    • Authors: mehul
      Abstract: The development of increasingly sensitive and specific serum cardiac biomarkers has led a revolution in the diagnosis and management of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). However, although the troponins now in use are considered highly sensitive cardiac biomarkers in the general population, the interpretation of troponins in patients with acute kidney injury (AKI), chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) has long caused diagnostic uncertainty.

      Abstract: AF is the most common sustained arrhythmia in clinical routine, and is associated with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular complications, dementia and mortality.1 Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) in patients with symptomatic AF has become a well-established treatment option.2,3 High acute success rates are achievable, but durable efficacy of previously successful PVIs for AF still remains a challenge, and finding the predictors of AF recurrence is of major importance.

While traditional treatment protocols follow physical or pharmaceutical interventions, the mental approach of meditation has been used for centuries to induce beneficial changes to the patients’ cardiovascular risk profile. However, scientific refurbishment of this technique has in the past raised questions of legitimation.

      Abstract: Cardiovascular (CV) disease is the leading cause of death worldwide.1 Age, sex and genetic factors have a major impact on CV risk. The importance of behavioural factors, such as tobacco and alcohol use, physical inactivity, unhealthy diet and obesity, is often neglected, although the implementation of lifestyle changes may be a cost-effective strategy for the prevention of CV diseases, also from a population-wide perspective.2

      Abstract: Today is an age of rapid digital integration. A decade ago, technological advancement was represented by a bulky desktop computer. With the constant evolution of microprocessors and sophistication of programming, the capacity of the mainframe has been surpassed and miniaturised, so that the pinnacle of technology and innovation is quite literally in the palm of our hands. This opens a world of possibilities, because technology is more advanced, affordable and accessible than ever before.

      Abstract: During the 1980s and early 1990s, if you wanted to know more about my career – or the careers of my older brother, Pedro, and my younger brother, Ramon – all you had to do was ask our father. In fact, you probably didn’t need to ask. He kept dozens of scrapbooks, each overflowing with every titbit of news published by or about any of the three of us. And he made it a point to regularly regale friends and acquaintances with tales of his three cardiologist sons who – in his estimation – were clearly the most amazing sons any father had ever had.

For a long time, cigarette smoking was perceived as a symbol of wealth, glamour and sophistication, whereas nowadays it is largely recognised as the first preventable or modifiable cause of common diseases in developed societies.1,2

      Abstract: I was eight and a half years old when the lights of my childhood went out. It was 1938 and my family and I lived in what had been, until then, a pleasant area in the first District of Vienna near the Danube Canal. I went to a special school, took piano and English lessons and had good friends. My mother often took my younger brother and me on walks around the canal. We watched the boats and other activities on the water and had picnics in the park. My father ran a successful wholesale clothing business and he and my mother were devoted opera fans.

Arterial Doppler ultrasound, echocardiography, myocardial perfusion imaging tests and angiography are now part of everyday clinical practice and represent a cornerstone of atherosclerosis management.1 During the past two decades, there has been an expansion of the available imaging techniques, some of which give us greater understanding of atherosclerosis in both coronary and peripheral arteries.

  • Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy and Cellular Bioenergetics: Effects
           Beyond Chamber Mechanics

    • Authors: mehul
      Abstract: Cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) has been a cornerstone in the treatment of select advanced heart failure cases since its introduction to our armamentarium in the early 2000s.1 Indeed, 30–60% of advanced heart failure patients exhibit evidence of dyssynchrony, when defined electrocardiographically or mechanically.2–4 The latter is a consequence of the former. CRT has several unique features, summarised in Table 1.

  • Sodium–glucose Cotransporter 2 Inhibitors in Heart Failure: Potential
           Mechanisms of Action, Adverse Effects and Future Developments

    • Authors: mehul
      Abstract: Type 2 diabetes (T2D) remains a major cardiovascular (CV) risk factor1–5 and it confers an approximately two- to threefold fold excess risk for coronary heart disease, including MI, stroke and heart failure (HF) in patients with and in patients without established cardiovascular disease (CVD).1,6–8 The prevalence of T2D among patients with HF is as high as 40–45% and that of HF in patients with T2D is reported to be 10–23%.8 Patients wit

  • Behind Traditional Semi-quantitative Scores of Myocardial Perfusion
           Imaging: An Eye on Niche Parameters

    • Authors: mehul
      Abstract: Evaluating stress-induced myocardial perfusion defects by non-invasive myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) modalities has taken a leading role in the identification of flow-limiting epicardial coronary artery disease (CAD); it has excellent diagnostic and prognostic value.

  • Improvement of Fractional Flow Reserve after Percutaneous Coronary
           Intervention Does Not Necessarily Indicate Increased Coronary Flow

    • Authors: mehul
      Abstract: Clinical and economic benefits of fractional flow reserve (FFR)-guided revascularisation have been established and the strategy is a class-1 recommendation in current guidelines.1,2 FFR values both before and after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) have been reported to provide prognostic information.3–5

  • Coronary Artery Spasm and Perivascular Adipose Tissue Inflammation:
           Insights From Translational Imaging Research

    • Authors: mehul
      Abstract: Coronary Artery Spasm and Adventitial InflammationCoronary artery spasm plays an important role in the pathogenesis of a wide range of ischaemic heart disease, not only in variant angina, but also in other forms of angina pectoris and myocardial infarction.1,2 Recent studies have demonstrated that coronary spasm is also as frequently noted in European people as in Asian people.3
