Uhl's anomaly is a rare disease secondary to the selective but uncontrolled apoptosis of right ventricular myocytes during the perinatal period, following complete cardiac development. This explains the absence of the right ventricular myocardium and the direct apposition of endocardium to epicardium without a myocardial layer in between, resulting in right ventricular failure. This paper describes a case of Uhl's disease with an uncommon presentation. A 28-year-old man was admitted with dyspnea and cyanosis...

REVIEW
Ana Teresa Timóteo
Metabolic syndrome is today a worldwide epidemic. First line interventions consist of a profound change in life style, particularly in diet, with a recommended moderate and balanced consumption of macronutrients associated with a caloric restriction. However, in the last few years, several studies have proposed diets with a more intense restriction of some macronutrients that can have some advantages for weight control and for metabolic risk factor control. In the present paper, we will review the evidence available until the present moment about that subject that is a very difficult problem to address and control in clinical practice...

BACKGROUND: Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an unusual cause of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Better recognition and diagnosis has raised awareness of this condition. However, the pathophysiology of SCAD and its prognosis are still little understood. We aimed to investigate the characteristics and prognosis of patients with SCAD, and subsequently performed a review of literature. METHODS: Single-center, retrospective study performed in patients hospitalized from January 2010 to December 2016 with suspected ACS (n=5002) whose final diagnosis was SCAD (n=27; 0...

Prosthetic valve endocarditis is a major diagnostic challenge in clinical practice, due to the lower sensitivity of the modified Duke criteria and a higher percentage of cases with negative or inconclusive echocardiography results. The delay in establishing medical and surgical treatment increases the morbidity/mortality rate. New imaging techniques and 18F-FDG PET/CT in particular have meant a significant advance in cases of high clinical suspicion and negative or inconclusive echocardiography, increasing the overall sensitivity of the modified Duke criteria...

José Luís Martins, Luís Santos, Ana Faustino, Jesus Viana, José Santos
INTRODUCTION: Renal insufficiency, as evidenced by an increase in creatinine, is associated with higher mortality in patients with acute heart failure (AHF). Conversely, hemoconcentration (HC) in AHF is associated with lower mortality, but can also cause an increase in creatinine. Our aim was to assess the prognosis of HC in patients hospitalized for AHF presenting with or without worsening renal function (WRF). METHODS: A total of 618 consecutive patients admitted for AHF were included...

INTRODUCTION: The migration of African populations to Europe poses problems of adaptation that may increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. We assessed the cardiovascular risk of Cape Verdean university students studying in Portugal (CV-PT) compared to Cape Verdean university students in Cape Verde (CV-CV) and to Caucasian university students in Portugal (PT-PT). METHODS: A cross-sectional study was performed comparing three university populations, 54-62% female, aged 19-28 years: CV-PT (n=104), CV-CV (n=100) and PT-PT (n=100)...

In pediatric age, the prevalence of high blood pressure (BP) has increased progressively, with obesity being responsible. Despite this, the dominant etiology in this age group is renal and / or cardiovascular pathology. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is the method of choice for the diagnosis of hypertension, especially in children at high cardiovascular risk. Its use is limited to children from 5 years of age. Choosing adequated cuff size is the key to getting correct blood pressure ABPM has as main indication the confirmation of the diagnosis of hypertension...

REVIEW
Beatriz Donato, Maria João Ferreira
Turner syndrome is a relatively common genetic disorder of female development, characterized by partial or complete absence of an X chromosome, with a variable clinical presentation. Congenital or acquired cardiovascular disease is highly prevalent and a major cause of early death in this syndrome. The most feared complication is aortic dissection, which can occur at a very young age and requires careful assessment of its risk factors. A systematic literature search identified sixty relevant publications. These were reviewed with regard to the increased risk of cardiovascular disease in women with Turner syndrome, especially in pregnancy...

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has been increasingly performed in patients with severely depressed left ventricular function and complex coronary lesions, including multivessel disease. Mechanical ventricular assist devices play an increasingly important role in high-risk PCI. Impella CP® (Abiomed, Inc.) is a new percutaneous left ventricular assist device, designed for short-term circulatory support. It is a promising option for hemodynamic support in high-risk procedures and can potentially reduce PCI-related complications...

REVIEW
Nelson Cunha, António Pedro Machado
Proton pump inhibitors are currently one of the most prescribed pharmacological classes in developed countries, given their effectiveness and safety profile previously considered favourable. However, over the last few years, several papers have been published that associate prolonged use of these drugs with a wide range of adverse effects, posing doubts about their safety. Among the adverse effects described, one should emphasize the increased risk of cardiovascular events. This relationship was first described in subjects after acute coronary syndrome by the interference of proton pump inhibitors in cytochrome P450 2C19 and the conversion of clopidogrel to active metabolite...
