BACKGROUND: Stroke is one the most feared cardiovascular disease due to its high risk of disability and its incidence after an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is not uncommon. METHODS: Retrospective study of all consecutive patients admitted for an ACS in two hospitals. Competing risk regression, taking all-cause mortality as a competing event, was used for the assessment of stroke incidence. RESULTS: We included 8771 patients, AF prevalence 12...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac rehabilitation (CR) reach is minimal globally, primarily due to financial factors. This study characterized CR funding sources, cost to patients to participate, cost to programs to serve patients, and the drivers of these costs. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, an online survey was administered to CR programs globally. Cardiac associations and local champions facilitated program identification. Costs in each country were reported using purchasing power parity (PPP)...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the associations between individual income, all-cause mortality and use of healthcare resources in a very large population of chronic heart failure (CHF) patients living in Catalonia (Spain), where access to public healthcare is granted by law. METHODS AND RESULTS: We used 2016 data from the Catalan Health Surveillance System, a large, exhaustive, administrative healthcare database which includes information on medical diagnoses, healthcare resource use, and individual income for all Catalan residents (N = 7,638,524)...

Cardiomyopathies (CMPs) are a heterogeneous group of heart muscle diseases with several different phenotypes defined as myocardial disorders in which the heart muscle is structurally and functionally abnormal in the absence of coronary artery disease, hypertension, valvular heart disease and congenital heart disease sufficient to explain the observed myocardial abnormality. CMPs can be classified into one of the following, i.e. hypertrophic CMP (HCM), dilated CMP (DCM), arrhythmogenic right ventricular CMP (ARVC), restrictive CMP (RCM), and unclassified CMPs...

BACKGROUND: An "obesity paradox" has been described in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF), obese patients having a better survival. Vasopressin is elevated in patients with CHF, and higher levels are associated with worsening severity of the disease. We aimed at evaluating the relationship between body mass index (BMI), obesity (BMI ≥30 kg/m2 ), and vasopressin in patients with CHF, as well as the prognostic implications of vasopressin across the full spectrum of BMI values...

AIMS: To assess the efficacy of the 2nd generation Cryoballoon for pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation (PersAF), and to compare it to patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF). METHODS: The outcome (arrhythmia recurrence at 12 months) was prospectively assessed in patients with PersAF(n = 77) and compared to that in patients with PAF(n = 62), who underwent PVI within a randomized trial evaluating single versus dual applications with the 2nd generation cryoballoon...

BACKGROUND: A significant proportion of patients receiving CRT are non-responders. We evaluated the efficacy of Cardiac Contractility Modulation in subjects with reduced LVEF who, despite cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), continued to experience clinically significant symptoms. METHODS: This was a multi-center, open label, treatment-only, feasibility study of 17 CRT non-responders who received CCM therapy. Changes in NYHA class, ejection fraction (EF), Minnesota Living with Heart Failure Questionnaire (MLWHFQ) score, and exercise tolerance (6 minute walk test; 6MWT and peak VO2 ) were analyzed over 6 months...

BACKGROUND: We aimed to evaluate the diagnostic sensitivity for myocardial infarction (MI) when using an undetectable level of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT < 5 ng/L) at presentation combined with a non-ischemic electrocardiogram (ECG), to rule out MI in a non-ST-segment elevation MI (NSTEMI) cohort presenting ≤2 h from symptom onset. We also aimed to compare baseline characteristics and 30-day outcome in NSTEMI patients presenting with and without hs-cTnT < 5 ng/L...

BACKGROUND: Inflammation has been reported to cause atrial fibrillation (AF). However, it remains unclear whether C-reactive protein (CRP) levels predict AF. We investigated whether there was an association between serum CRP levels and the development of AF. METHODS: A total of 10,030 subjects aged between 40 and 69 years were enrolled and followed biennially over a 12-year period in the Ansan-Ansung cohort study. Serum CRP levels were measured at baseline and high-sensitivity CRP (hsCRP) levels were measured at every revisit...

BACKGROUND: Frailty in patients undergoing Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) has been associated with an increased 1-year mortality rate but the relation of frailty and short term outcomes yields conflicting results. This study investigated the association of a novel and self-developed Erasmus Frailty Score with both short and long term outcomes after TAVI. METHODS: TAVI Care & Cure is an observational ongoing study, which includes consecutive patients undergoing TAVI at the Erasmus University Medical Centre...

AIMS: Adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) patients are at increased risk of sudden cardiac death and out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). Currently, insufficient data exist on outcome, causes and circumstances of OHCA of ACHD patients resuscitated for OHCA. We investigate these parameters in ACHD patients in comparison to OHCA in the general population. METHODS AND RESULTS: We identified ACHD patients with OHCA by linking data from a Dutch nationwide registry of ACHD patients (CONCOR, n = 15,727), and ARREST, a cohort of OHCA cases (n = 17,868)...
