BACKGROUND: Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) have shown benefit in reducing mortality in patients with heart failure, after myocardial infarction, and those with reduced ejection fraction. We sought to explore the use of this therapy in specialized heart function clinics, in rural and urban locations. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study performed in 3 specialized heart function clinics in Nova Scotia, 2 of which were in rural locations. All patients with an initial left ventricular ejection fraction ≤ 35% were included from 2006 to 2011...

REVIEW
Gemma Currie, Christian Delles
Despite decades of research and clinical practice, the pathogenesis of hypertension remains incompletely understood, and blood pressure is often suboptimally controlled. "Omics" technologies allow the description of a large number of molecular features and have the potential to identify new factors that contribute to blood pressure regulation and how they interact. In this review, we focus on the potential of genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics and explore their roles in unraveling the pathophysiology and diagnosis of hypertension, the prediction of organ damage and treatment response, and monitoring treatment effect...

Vascular ring in the form of a double aortic arch is a rare anomaly that can cause airway compression. It occasionally occurs with unusual head and neck vessel branching. A 5-year-old boy with chronic respiratory symptoms was referred because of a tracheal indentation on his chest x-ray. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a double aortic arch with arch origins of a common carotid, vertebral, and subclavian on the right and internal and external carotids, vertebral, and subclavian arteries on the left. Our case represents, to our knowledge, the first report of a double aortic arch with 7 separate vessels arising from the transverse arches...

A dual left anterior descending (LAD) artery is an infrequent anomaly of the coronary circulation with rare variations that may cause symptoms. We report a 60-year-old man who underwent multiple percutaneous cardiac catheterizations with stent placements and presented with recurrent angina pectoris. Coronary computed tomographic angiography demonstrated a dual LAD with the long and short LADs originating from the right coronary artery and the left main coronary artery, respectively.

Valve-in-valve implantation is generally successful in reducing paravalvular regurgitation (PVR) in cases in which the first transcatheter heart valve is deployed in a suboptimal location. We describe a case of severe PVR 2 months after implantation of a 26-mm Sapien XT valve (Edwards Lifesciences Inc, Irvine, CA) in the optimal location. Valve-in-valve implantation of a Sapien 3 valve (Edwards Lifesciences Inc), and enough left ventricular outflow tract tissue at the inflow edge the Sapien XT to appose the sealing cuff of the Sapien 3 combined for successful PVR treatment...

Mechanical circulatory support improves survival and quality of life in selected patients with advanced heart failure. The Interagency Registry for Mechanically Assisted Circulatory Support (INTERMACS) clinical profile (profiles 1-7) is a classification system of patients with American Heart Association stage D and New York Heart Association functional class IIIb-IV heart failure. Most left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) are implanted in patients dependent on inotropes (INTERMACS 3) or whose condition is deteriorating with inotropic support (INTERMACS 2)...

BACKGROUND: Despite being a common intervention to restore sinus rhythm in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), limited data exist on the impact of electrical cardioversion on quality of life (QoL) outcomes in clinical practice. METHODS: This was a prospective cohort study of consecutive patients with AF referred for outpatient electrical cardioversion at 2 hospitals in Edmonton from 2013-2014. Baseline demographics, clinical characteristics, medications, and procedure details were obtained...

Congenital heart disease is the most common congenital malformation and approximately 3 in 1000 newborns have critical congenital heart disease (CCHD). Timely diagnosis affects morbidity, mortality, and disability, and newborn pulse oximetry screening has been studied to enhance detection of CCHD. In this position statement we present an evaluation of the literature for pulse oximetry screening. Current detection strategies including prenatal ultrasound examination and newborn physical examination are limited by low diagnostic sensitivity...

BACKGROUND: Despite previously described feasibility, direct transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) with the Edwards SAPIEN S3 device (S3-THV) (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, CA) has not been compared with either a systematic or a selective predilation approach. METHODS: Patients undergoing predilation were divided into a systematic group (regardless of anatomic features) and a selective group (in the context of high valvular calcium burden). Both groups were matched in a 2:1 fashion to patients who underwent direct TAVI...

Sudden cardiac death is a major public health issue in Canada. However, despite the overwhelming evidence to support the use of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) in the prevention of cardiac death there remains significant variability in implantation rates across Canada. Since the most recent Canadian Cardiovascular Society position statement on ICD use in Canada in 2005, there has been a plethora of new scientific information to assist physicians in their discussions with patients considered for ICD implantation to prevent sudden cardiac death due to ventricular arrhythmias...

Drug shortages have been reported for > 35 years. Attention to this problem increased recently after the Sandoz crisis, in which a warning letter by the Food and Drug Administration caused supply changes that suspended the availability of numerous medications. The frequency of drug shortages has increased recently. In 2011-2012 alone, Canadian supply shortages occurred for > 1000 drugs (including 150 for cardiovascular diseases). These shortages lasted for an average of 4-5 months, increasing the workload for health care providers, producing impaired health, stress, and anxiety for patients, and increasing the risk of errors...

Pediatric syncope is a common problem that peaks in adolescence, for which there are few data or evidence-based consensus on investigation and management. This document offers guidance for practical evaluation/management of pediatric patients (age < 19 years) with syncope encountered in the acute or primary care setting. The writing committee used the Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development, and Evaluation (GRADE) methodology. Most syncope is vasovagal, which is benign and does not require extensive investigation...
