Mitral valve aneurysms are rare and occur most commonly in association with aortic valve endocarditis. Transesophageal echocardiography is the most sensitive imaging modality for the diagnosis of this entity and its potential complications, such as leaflet rupture and mitral regurgitation, which mandate prompt surgical intervention. We present the case of a 70-year-old male patient with aortic valve endocarditis complicated with a ruptured aneurysm of the anterior mitral valve leaflet and associated severe mitral regurgitation, diagnosed by transesophageal echocardiography, with impressive images...

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to study the feasibility and outcomes of ductal stenting in patients with duct-dependent pulmonary blood flow (PBF). METHODS: Duct-dependent hypoxic patients with confluent pulmonary artery (PA) branches were enrolled for ductal stenting and followed regularly. RESULTS: Sixty patients, with a median age of 12 (1-1095) days and weight of 2.8 (2.2-8.9) kg, were enrolled. Median right PA (RPA) and left PA (LPA) Z-scores were -1...

INTRODUCTION: There is disagreement whether white coat hypertensives (WCH) have different hemodynamic and structural characteristics compared to normotensives (NT) and hypertensives (HT). METHODS: We compared cardiovascular prognostic markers (pulse wave velocity [PWV] and aortic stiffness index [ASI]) and data on central hemodynamics and central pressures (augmentation index [AIx], augmentation pressure [AugP] and pulse pressure amplification [PPA]) from aortic pulse wave analysis between NT (n=175), WCH (n=315) and treated HT (n=691), all with 24-h blood pressure (BP) <130/80 and nocturnal BP <120/70 mmHg after matching for age, gender, body mass index (BMI) and and nocturnal BP...

Hypersensitivity reactions to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are common and five types of reactions have been defined. The prevalence of such reactions in patients with myocardial infarction is unclear, and so antiplatelet therapy in this population is a challenge. Various desensitization protocols have been developed but there are no specific guidelines for their use. The authors present the case of a patient with acute coronary syndrome and aspirin hypersensitivity referred for urgent coronary angiography...

The Acute Dialysis Quality Initiative consensus conference proposed a classification of cardiorenal syndrome (CRS), aiming for a better delineation of each subtype. Although the exact pathophysiology of type 4 CRS is not completely understood, the mechanisms involved are probably multifactorial. There is growing evidence that oxidative stress is a major connector in the development and progression of type 4 CRS. Giving its complexity, poor prognosis and increasing incidence, type 4 CRS is becoming a significant public health problem...

INTRODUCTION: Calcific aortic valve disease, a chronic progressive disorder, is the leading cause of valve replacement among elderly patients. The lymphocyte/monocyte ratio has been recently put forward as an inflammatory marker of relevance in several cancers as well as in cardiovascular disease. This study aims to assess the correlation between severity of calcific aortic stenosis and the lymphocyte/monocyte ratio. METHODS: The study retrospectively included 178 patients with a diagnosis of calcific aortic stenosis and 139 age- and gender-matched controls...

INTRODUCTION: Athletes can exhibit abnormal electrocardiogram (ECG) phenotypes that require further evaluation prior to competition. These are apparently more prevalent in high-intensity endurance sports. The purpose of this study was to assess the association between ECG findings in athletes and intensity of sport and level of competition. METHODS: A cohort of 3423 competitive athletes had their ECGs assessed according to the Seattle criteria (SC). The presence of abnormal ECGs was correlated with: (1) intensity of sport (low/moderate vs...

Mitral stenosis (MS) is frequently associated with the development of atrial fibrillation (AF) as a consequence of hemodynamic and inflammatory changes in the left atrium. Both conditions predispose to thrombus formation, with frequent involvement of the left atrial appendage (LAA), and consequent increase in the incidence of systemic thromboembolic events. Percutaneous mitral valvuloplasty (PMV) reduces the risk of thromboembolism in patients with significant mitral stenosis. Percutaneous LAA closure is also associated with a reduction in thromboembolic risk in patients with AF, but there are no data regarding the use of this technique in patients with significant mitral valve disease...

INTRODUCTION: In recent years, cardiac rehabilitation (CR) programs have evolved from being limited to exercise training to comprehensive secondary prevention programs. Given the solid scientific evidence supporting them, they are given a class I recommendation in the American and European guidelines for various cardiovascular diseases, but they continue to be underused in Portugal. OBJECTIVE: To analyze the situation of CR programs in Portugal in 2013-14 and to assess developments in recent years...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) have been shown to reduce mortality after myocardial infarction (MI). Current guidelines recommend their prescription in all patients after MI. Limited data are available on whether ACEIs/ARBs still improve prognosis in the contemporary era of non-ST elevation MI (NSTEMI) management. We aimed to evaluate the mortality benefit of ACEIs/ARBs in NSTEMI patients treated successfully with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)...

Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by complete or partial aplasia of the uterus and the upper part of the vagina. It is reported to be associated with cardiovascular disorders including atrial septal defect, anomalous pulmonary venous return, aortopulmonary window, pulmonary valve stenosis, mitral valve prolapse, tetralogy of Fallot, truncus arteriosus, and patent ductus arteriosus. Herein, for the first time in the medical literature, we present percutaneous closure of an isolated ostium secundum atrial septal defect in this syndrome...
