INTRODUCTION: Chronic total occlusion (CTO) of the left main coronary artery (LMCA) is an infrequent finding. Revascularization is recommended in the presence of demonstrated viability or ischemia. Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) has long been considered the preferred option. Patients with previous CABG due to LMCA disease with occlusion of one graft and progression of the LMCA to CTO constitute a special population, as just one ischemic artery remains. For these patients, there is no other option for revascularization other than cardiac surgery (requiring resternotomy) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of the LMCA...

INTRODUCTION: Smoking is associated with atherosclerotic disease, but there is controversy about its protective nature after acute coronary syndrome (ACS). OBJECTIVE: To determine the impact of smoking on the presentation, treatment and outcome of ACS. METHODS: We analyzed all consecutive patients with ACS in a single center between 2005 and 2014. Current smokers and never-smokers were compared. Independent predictors of in-hospital mortality and of a composite of all-cause mortality, rehospitalization for cardiovascular causes, angiography, percutaneous coronary intervention and coronary artery bypass grafting were assessed by multivariate logistic regression...

INTRODUCTION: We sought to assess the prognostic impact of left atrial (LA) size on long-term outcomes of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). METHODS: We studied 200 consecutive patients admitted to a single center between January 2010 and December 2014 with non-fatal STEMI treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) who underwent a comprehensive echocardiographic examination at discharge. LA volume was estimated by the area-length method...

OBJECTIVE: To report the hemodynamic profile and short- and medium-term outcomes of Freedom Solo and Solo Smart stentless aortic valves implanted at our center. METHODS: Between 2009 and 2015, all patients undergoing aortic valve replacement using Solo stentless valves at our center were enrolled. Clinical and echocardiographic follow-up was carried out six months postoperatively. Survival and major events, including structural valve deterioration and non-structural valve dysfunction, endocarditis, reoperation and stroke, were assessed through medical records or telephone interview with the referring cardiologist up to November 2015 (mean and maximum follow-up 39±22 and 78 months, respectively)...

INTRODUCTION: Left atrial (LA) size and function are associated with outcome after myocardial infarction (MI). In this study we aimed to assess the impact of LA function as a predictor of exercise capacity through speckle tracking echocardiography. METHODS: A total of 94 patients (mean age 54.8±11.0 years; 82% male) were enrolled one month after MI. Echocardiography was used to assess LA volumes and various indices of LA conduit, contraction and reservoir function...

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, which has until now been considered favorable. However, in recent 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 is an increased risk of cardiovascular events. This relationship was first described in subjects after acute coronary syndrome due to the interference of proton pump inhibitors in the cytochrome P450 2C19 and the conversion of clopidogrel to its active metabolite...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: The benefits of implanted defibrillators in patients with ischemic heart disease (IHD) are well known. However, the evidence is less robust in patients with non-ischemic heart disease (non-IHD). We aimed to determine whether patients with non-IHD have a similar incidence of appropriate shocks and all-cause mortality compared to those with IHD. METHODS: In a retrospective single-center study we analyzed all patients with implantable cardioverter-defibrillators or cardiac resynchronization therapy-defibrillators implanted for primary prevention between 2004 and 2014...

INTRODUCTION: Percutaneous closure of the left atrial appendage (LAA) is a promising therapy in patients with atrial fibrillation with high risk for stroke and contraindication for oral anticoagulation (OAC). Intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) may make this percutaneous procedure feasible in patients in whom transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is inadvisable. Our aim was to assess the efficacy and safety of LAA closure and the feasibility of ICE compared to TEE to guide the procedure...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Aortic dilatation can develop late after tetralogy of Fallot repair. Its extension beyond the aortic root is not clearly understood. We aimed to assess the prevalence and predictors of ascending aorta dilatation to set up an imaging protocol. METHODS: In this prospective study including adult patients after tetralogy of Fallot repair followed at a referral center, we assessed the aorta by cardiovascular magnetic resonance and defined ascending aorta dilatation as an observed-to-expected ratio >1...

OBJECTIVES: This study aims to assess the long-term survival of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) patients followed in a Portuguese pulmonary hypertension (PH) referral center. METHODS: We studied PAH and CTEPH patients diagnosed between January 2005 and December 2016. Cumulative survival was estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method. Survival trends were compared over two periods (2005-2010 vs. 2011-2016)...
