BACKGROUND: Tirofiban is recommended as bail out therapy in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). However, evidence regarding safety and efficacy of tirofiban is unclear. Tirofiban has been shown to improve ST-resolution, to decrease infarct size (IS) and to reduce incidence of major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events (MACCE). However, bleeding is enhanced in tirofiban treated patients. In this study, we aim to investigate efficacy and safety of Tirofiban in STEMI-patients...

AIMS: Initial proximal optimization technique (POT) in provisional stenting improves global malapposition, side-branch (SB) obstruction (SBO) and conservation of arterial circularity. The specific mechanical effects of a final POT sequence concluding the main provisional stenting techniques, on the other hand, are unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS: Synergy™ stents were implanted on fractal coronary bifurcation bench models using the main provisional stenting techniques (n = 5 per group): kissing-balloon inflation (KBI), snuggle, and rePOT (initial POT + SB inflation + final POT)...

BACKGROUND: Supravalvular aortic stenosis (SVAS) is a congenital heart disease affecting approximately 1:25,000 live births. SVAS may occur sporadically, be inherited in an autosomal dominant manner, or be associated with Williams-Beuren syndrome, a complex developmental disorder caused by a microdeletion of chromosome 7q11.23. ELN on 7q11.23, which encodes elastin, is the only known gene to be recurrently mutated in less than half of SVAS patients. METHODS: Whole-exome sequencing (WES) was performed for seven familial SVAS families to identify other causative gene mutations of SVAS...

BACKGROUND: The significance of depression/anxiety among ACHD patients in terms of health care utilization is unknown and data on the association with mortality are scarce. METHODS: Analyses comprised 8334 ACHD patients, age ≥ 18 years, insured by a large healthcare organization (2007-2011). Depression/anxiety were determined by diagnoses and treatments recorded in the organization database. Adjusted utilization relative rates (RRs) were estimated with negative binomial models and mortality hazard ratios (HRs) with the Cox proportional hazard model...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary hypertension complicating left heart disease (PH-LHD) is the most common cause of PH. Off-label use of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) medications for PH-LHD is prevalent, despite a lack of clinical data supporting their use. METHODS: A systematic review and meta-analysis was performed. Comprehensive search of all available literature to date identified ten randomised, placebo controlled trials comprising 439 treated (Phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitors: n = 206; guanylate cyclase stimulators: n = 132; endothelin receptor antagonists: n = 101) and 338 placebo patients...

BACKGROUND: Mitral valve prolapse (MVP), including the recently described arrhythmogenic bileaflet MVP syndrome (ABiMVPS), is associated with repolarization abnormalities and may represent an underestimated cause of sudden cardiac death. The impact of concomitant MVP or ABiMVPS on long QT syndrome (LQTS) clinical severity is unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS: Retrospective review of 754 LQTS patients [445 females (58%) and mean QTc 471 ± 41 ms] with available echocardiographic data was performed to identify LQTS patients with not only MVP, but also a pro-arrhythmic ABiMVPS phenotype defined as bileaflet MVP, inferolateral T-wave inversions, and frequent complex ventricular ectopy/arrhythmia...

BACKGROUND: Low reliability of Revised Cardiac Risk Index (RCRI) in predicting major cardiac events (MACE) among Vascular Surgery patients emerged in recent literature, suggesting procedure-specific risk evaluation - particularly in major surgery. METHODS-RESULTS: Comorbidities, perioperative variables, RCRI and MACE were retrospectively analyzed in a consecutive series of 899 elective open abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repairs performed at our Institution. Possible MACE predictors were studied through univariate/multivariable analysis (logistic regression, MVRE) and stepwise-backward elimination/odds ratio (MVR-SBE/OR)...

BACKGROUND: Diagnostic Task Force Criteria (TFC) for arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (AC) exhibit poor performance for left dominant forms. TFC only include right ventricular (RV) dysfunction (akinesia, dyssynchrony, volumes and ejection fraction). Moreover, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) assessment of left ventricular (LV) dyssynchrony has hitherto not been described. Thus, we aimed to comprehensively characterize LV CMRI behavior in AC patients. METHODS: Thirty-five AC patients with LV involvement and twenty-three non-affected family members (controls) were enrolled...

Patient-specific in vivo ventricle material parameter determination is important for cardiovascular investigations. A new cardiac magnetic image (CMR)-based modeling approach with different zero-load diastole and systole geometries was adopted to estimate right ventricle material parameter values for healthy and patients with Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) and seeking potential clinical applications. CMR data were obtained from 6 healthy volunteers and 16 TOF patients with consent obtained. CMR-based RV/LV models were constructed using two zero-load geometries (diastole and systole, 2G model)...

BACKGROUND: Guidelines on atrial fibrillation (AF) recommend the CHA2 DS2 -VASc rule for anticoagulant decision-making, but underuse exists. We studied the impact of an automated decision support on stroke prevention in patients with AF in a cluster randomised trial in general practice. METHODS: Intervention practices were provided with a CHA2 DS2 -VASc based anticoagulant treatment recommendation. Reference practices provided care as usual. The primary outcome was incidence of ischaemic stroke, transient ischaemic attack (TIA) and/or thromboembolism (TE)...
