BACKGROUND: Despite the improvements in transvenous lead extraction (TLE), patients with cardiac implantable device related infection (CIEDI) have a poor prognosis at long term. We explored the possible role of factors associated with development of CIEDI as predictors of post-TLE survival. METHODS: We performed a multi-center prospective observational study in a population of consecutive patients referred for TLE for CIEDI. We adopted a previously developed 10-point scale for CIEDI risk stratification and assessed its performance in predicting post-TLE survival...

BACKGROUND: Patients with congenital or acquired heart defects affecting the pulmonary valve and right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) commonly require multiple surgical interventions, resulting in significant morbidity. A less invasive alternative is percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation (PPVI). Though studies have previously reported the safety and efficacy of the early generation transcatheter heart valves (THVs), data on more recent devices are severely lacking. METHODS AND RESULTS: We performed a multinational, multicentre, retrospective, observational registry analysis of patients who underwent PPVI using the Edwards SAPIEN XT THV...

BACKGROUND: Since the early 2000s the treatment of choice for an acute myocardial infarction has moved from thrombolytic therapy to primary PCI (pPCI). As a result, the majority of patients undergoing PCI shifted from stable angina pectoris (SA) to acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Additionally the previously observed association between depression and anxiety and long-term outcome in patients who underwent a PCI may have been changed. The main objective of this study was to investigate the predictive value of depression and anxiety for 10-year mortality, in a cohort with post-PCI patients treated for SA versus patients treated for ACS...

BACKGROUND: Ventricular fibrillation (VF) is a major cause of sudden cardiac death. In some cases clinical investigations fail to identify the underlying cause and the event is classified as idiopathic (IVF). Since mutations in arrhythmia-associated genes frequently determine arrhythmia susceptibility, screening for disease-predisposing variants could improve IVF diagnostics. METHODS AND RESULTS: The study included 76 Finnish and Italian patients with a mean age of 31...

BACKGROUND: For the treatment of coronary bifurcation lesions, optimal guidewire (GW) recrossing after main vessel stenting is important for good stent apposition at the side branch (SB) orifice in kissing balloon inflation (KBI). METHODS: We analyzed 150 bifurcation lesions treated with single stenting following KBI in the three-dimensional optical coherence tomography (3D-OCT) bifurcation registry study (2015-16) and a single center experience (2012-16). OCT examination was performed after GW recrossing to the SB and after KBI...

BACKGROUND: Myocardial bridge (MB) is a myocardial bundle through which coronary segment tunnels and could compress coronary arteries causing myocardial ischemia. However, the characteristic structural findings of MB remain to be fully elucidated. Recently, we demonstrated that optical coherence tomography (OCT) enables us to visualize adventitial vasa vasorum (VV) formation in humans. In this study, we examined adventitial VV formation at the coronary segment with MB in humans using OCT...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Inter-atrial block (IAB) is characterized by a delay of inter-atrial conduction and is defined electrocardiographically by a P-wave duration (PWD)>120ms. Several studies have implicated IAB in the development of new onset atrial fibrillation (AF), whereas others have reported no significant associations. Moreover, there has been no systematic evaluation of the predictive value of IAB in AF recurrence. Therefore, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to examine whether IAB predicts new onset AF or AF recurrence...

BACKGROUND: We previously investigated the prognostic utility of red blood cell (RBC) n-3 fatty acids (FAs) in survivors of an acute myocardial syndrome (ACS) but found no relationship with all-cause mortality and cardiac death or MI after two years. Here we extend our follow-up to 7years, focusing on the potential predictive power of RBC n-6 FAs. METHODS: We included 398 ACS patients presenting with increased troponin-T (TnT) levels for whom baseline RBC FA data were available...
