REVIEW

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disorder characterized by a constellation of cardiovascular (CV) and non-CV manifestations. Even though CV complications such as accelerated atherosclerosis and elevated risk of myocardial infarction (MI) have been recognized for many years, there is limited evidence regarding SLE and its association with heart failure (HF). Traditional risk factors of atherosclerotic CV disease, as well as various SLE manifestations and therapies, independently or together, increase the risk of HF in this population...

REVIEW
Sidakpal S Panaich, Mackram F Eleid
Mitral valve regurgitation (MR) affects approximately 4 million people in the United States alone, increasing in prevalence with age. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in October 2013, percutaneous edge-to-edge transcatheter mitral valve repair (also known as the MitraClip system) has been used in over 40,000 patients globally. Additionally, there is keen interest and early exploration into the use of MitraClip for treatment of severe symptomatic tricuspid regurgitation, another undertreated disease with significant morbidity and mortality...

Small nucleolar RNAs (snoRNAs) are a group of noncoding RNAs that perform various biological functions, including biochemical modifications of other RNAs, precursors of miRNA, splicing, and telomerase activity. The small Cajal body-associated RNAs (scaRNAs) are a subset of the snoRNA family and collect in the Cajal body where they perform their canonical function to biochemically modify spliceosomal RNAs prior to maturation. Failure of sno/scaRNAs have been implicated in pathology such as congenital heart anomalies, neuromuscular disorders, and various malignancies...

REVIEW
Andras P Durko, Ruben L Osnabrugge, A Pieter Kappetein
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) revolutionized the treatment of severe symptomatic aortic stenosis (AS). TAVR is increasingly offered for lower-risk patients. The role and place of TAVR in the future treatment of AS is not clear yet. In this review, we discuss the long-term outlook for TAVR, its challenges and its relationship to conventional surgical aortic valve replacement.

REVIEW

Traditional transvenous cardiac pacemakers have pitfalls due to lead- and device pocket-related complications. Leadless pacemakers were developed and introduced into clinical practice to overcome the shortcomings of traditional transvenous pacemakers. In this review, we provide a description of leadless pacemaker devices, and summarize existing data on device performance. We also describe associated complications during implantation procedure as well as during the follow-up period. Although current generation devices are limited to single-chamber pacing, future generation devices are expected to progress to multi-chamber multi-component pacing systems, and eventually to battery-less devices...

The field of cardiology has long used wearable medical devices to monitor heart rate and rhythm. The past decade has seen the emergence of many new wearable devices, including several that have been widely adopted by both physicians and consumers. In this review, we discuss existing and forthcoming devices designed to measure activity, heart rate, heart rhythm, and thoracic fluid. We also offer several frameworks to classify and better understand wearable devices, such that we may weigh their potential benefit in improving healthcare with the many challenges that must be addressed to reap these benefits...

REVIEW

Cardiology is a newcomer to environmental sciences. We aim to propose an original review of the scientific evidence regarding the effects of the environment on cardiovascular health. We report first influences of air-related environmental factors. Air temperature has a strong influence on cardiovascular mortality characterized by a V-like relationship confirming that both cold and hot periods have negative cardiovascular impacts. Furthermore, dynamic changes in temperature are likely more important than the absolute air temperature level...

Age- and gender-related differences in QTc-interval are most likely the result of changes in sex-specific hormones. Although the exact mechanisms and pathophysiology of sex hormones on the QTc-interval are not known, testosterone appears to shorten the QTc-interval. In females, however, there is a more complex interaction between progesterone and estrogen. In patients with an impaired repolarization, such as long-QT syndrome (LQTS), the effect of these sex hormones on the QTc-interval is more pronounced with a differing sensitivity between the LQTS genotypes...

Recognizing and understanding the risk factors for mortality after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) provide clinicians and patients important information to determine prognosis and guide treatment. Most risk stratification models use demographic and clinical information that exists prior to hospitalization plus clinical presentation characteristics to estimate a patient's risk of mortality. In this review, we summarize the most important risk factors and discuss current models to predict mortality.

Since the 1990s, when numerous non-cardiac drugs were first recognized to have the potential to prolong the QT interval and cause torsades de pointes (TdP), clinicians, drug regulators, drug developers, and clinical investigators have become aware of the complexities of assessing evidence and determining TdP causality for the many drugs being marketed or under development. To facilitate better understanding, the Arizona Center for Education and Research on Therapeutics, known as AZCERT, has developed the CredibleMeds...

#19
REVIEW
Henri Roukoz, David G Benditt
Atrial arrhythmias are a common complication after lung transplant (LT), occurring in about 16-46% of LT patients early postoperatively, and in about 14% during longer-term follow-up. They have a significant impact on postoperative in-hospital length of stay and may have an impact on overall mortality. In this report, we review the incidence and risk factors of post lung transplant AA, their pathogenesis and their impact on short- and long-term outcomes. Pharmacological management options are reviewed. In brief, early atrial arrhythmias tend to be mostly atrial fibrillation and are treated acutely with a rate control strategy followed if needed by rhythm control for 4-6 weeks...
