We present first-in-human treatment with bioabsorbable magnesium scaffolds for percutaneous coronary intervention in a patient with nickel allergy. We present images from angiography and optical coherence tomography at three months. We also review the current status of these novel devices.

INTRODUCTION: Valvular heart disease (VHD) is increasing worldwide, mostly because of aging. Percutaneous valve intervention is the preferred therapeutic option in high-risk patients. OBJECTIVE: To characterize the profiles of patients with VHD admitted to the cardiology ward at a tertiary referral center. METHODS: On the basis of ICD-9 codes for VHD, the discharge notes of 287 patients hospitalized over a 22-month period were reviewed and analyzed...

INTRODUCTION: There is a lack of consensus on the definition of response to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), and it is not clear which response criteria have most influence on cardiac event-free survival. OBJECTIVES: To assess the predictive value of various response criteria in patients undergoing CRT and the agreement between them. METHODS: We performed a secondary analysis of the BETTER-HF trial. Patient response was classified at six months after CRT according to eleven criteria used in previous trials...

INTRODUCTION: Papillary fibroelastoma (PFE) is a rare primary benign tumor of cardiac origin that predominantly affects the cardiac valves. Although most patients are asymptomatic, serious complications may result given their propensity for embolization. Advances in imaging technology have enabled earlier detection and more accurate characterization of these tumors. We report a case series, describing clinical presentation, treatment and outcome. METHODS: Institutional records of a tertiary center between 1997 and 2015 were reviewed for all patients diagnosed with PFE treated surgically and confirmed histologically...

INTRODUCTION: The MINERVA trial established that atrial preventive pacing and atrial antitachycardia pacing (DDDRP) in combination with managed ventricular pacing (MVP) reduces progression to permanent atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with paroxysmal or persistent AF and bradycardia who need cardiac pacing, compared to standard dual-chamber pacing (DDDR). It was shown that AF-related health care utilization was significantly lower in the DDDRP + MVP group than in the control group...

INTRODUCTION: Major bleeding is a serious complication of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and is associated with a worse prognosis. The CRUSADE bleeding score is used to stratify the risk of major bleeding in ACS. OBJECTIVE: To assess the predictive ability of the CRUSADE score in a contemporary ACS population. METHODS: In a single-center retrospective study of 2818 patients admitted with ACS, the CRUSADE score was calculated for each patient and its discrimination and goodness of fit were assessed by the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUC) and by the Hosmer-Lemeshow test, respectively...

Heart failure is a high burden disease with elevated direct and indirect costs. Current treatment includes drugs that alter disease progression and drugs used to improve symptoms. Loop diuretics remain the cornerstone of congestion relief for acute management, as well as for chronic stabilization. In heart failure patients, maximal diuretic response is decreased by many individual factors. Diuretic resistance is defined as the failure to achieve effective congestion relief despite appropriate or escalating diuretic doses...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac computed tomography (CT) can provide a precise tridimentional anatomic map and exclude intra-cardiac thrombus. We aimed to access the impact of CT protocol optimization and technological evolution on the contrast and radiation dose as well as on image quality previous to atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation. METHODS: From a prospective registry of consecutive patients who underwent cardiac CT in a single center, we selected 270 patients in whom the CT was done for evaluation prior to AF ablation and they were distributed in 3 groups: Group1: the first 150 patients included; Group2: the last 60 patients performed with the same CT scanner; Group3: the first 60 exams performed with the new CT scanner...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this study were to assess the neuropsychological performance (NP) of adolescents and young adults with congenital heart disease (CHD), comparing them with a group of healthy controls, to determine whether there are different neurocognitive phenotypes in CHD, and to identify their relation to sociodemographic, neonatal, clinical and psychological adjustment variables. METHODS: A total of 217 CHD patients (116 male, aged 15...
