Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease comprises a vast array of defects in myelin integrity that causes progressive peripheral sensorimotor neuropathy. It is the most prevalent inherited peripheral neuropathy, and it can affect the management of coexisting medical conditions. We report the case of a 25-year-old woman who had undergone successful Fontan surgery during childhood, but her Fontan circulation failed as a result of diaphragmatic paresis caused by Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1A. This diagnosis precluded cardiac transplantation...

Superior vena cava syndrome has typically been associated with malignant conditions; however, the number of benign cases has started to grow as the use of upper-extremity venous lines and implantable cardiac devices increases. Whereas endovascular techniques are standardly used to treat patients with malignancies, the optimal care of patients with benign causes is less clear because they typically have longer life expectancies. We describe 2 cases of benign superior vena cava syndrome successfully managed with endovascular stenting, and we review the relevant literature...

Proteasome inhibitors such as bortezomib and carfilzomib have been used effectively to treat patients who have certain hematologic malignancies. Proteasome activity is elevated in the heart, and potent inhibition results in accumulation of misfolded intracellular protein aggregates and apoptosis. Heart failure, conduction disturbances, and premature atherosclerosis have been associated with bortezomib therapy. We describe the case of a 49-year-old man who was taking bortezomib for graft-versus-host disease, when he developed cardiac tamponade and needed emergency pericardiocentesis...

The use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in patients who have acute respiratory distress syndrome has been generally beneficial. However, because of various concerns, ECMO has rarely been used in patients who have human immunodeficiency virus infection with or without acquired immune deficiency syndrome. We report our successful use of venovenous ECMO in a 29-year-old man who presented with severe respiratory distress secondary to Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia associated with undiagnosed infection with the human immunodeficiency virus and acquired immune deficiency syndrome...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy can present with transient apical, midventricular, or basal left ventricular ballooning patterns. Reported recurrences of this cardiomyopathy are few. We present the cases of 2 elderly women who each had 3 episodes of takotsubo cardiomyopathy in various ballooning patterns. We explore the potential pathophysiologic mechanisms, and we discuss the best treatment approach for this disease, which carries a substantial risk of in-hospital complications.

Guidelines suggest that patients who receive implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) for primary prevention should be expected to live more than one year after placement. However, tools for validating this prognosis are not sufficiently predictive. We sought to identify definitive predictors of one-year survival after ICD placement. By reviewing medical records and the Social Security Death Index, we analyzed baseline characteristics and survival outcomes of 3,164 patients who underwent ICD placement at our institution from January 2006 through March 2014...

Coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA) with prospective electrocardiographic gating reduces radiation exposure, but its prognostic power for predicting cardiovascular risk in patients with suspected CAD has not been fully validated. To determine whether prospective gating performs as well as retrospective gating in this population, we compared these scan modes in patients undergoing 64-slice CCTA. From January 2009 through September 2011, 1,407 patients underwent CCTA; of these, 915 (mean age, 57...
