REVIEW
Shota Kurotsu, Takeshi Suzuki, Masaki Ieda
The discovery of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) has revolutionized regenerative medicine. Autologous iPSCs can be generated by introducing 4 stem cell-specific factors (Oct4, Sox2, Klf4, c-Myc) into fibroblasts. iPSCs can propagate indefinitely and differentiate into clinically important cell types including cardiomyocytes, in vitro. The iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes represent a promising source of cells for cell-based therapeutic approaches for cardiac regeneration. However, there are several challenges in the clinical application of iPSCs: tumorigenicity of immature cells, poor survival of the transplanted myocardial cells, and cost and efficacy of this therapeutic approach...

LETTER
Ann B Nguyen, Ben Bow Chung, Gabriel Sayer, Kathleen Mullane, Nir Uriel
ciHHV-6 (chromosomally-integrated HHV-6) is an uncommon cause of myocarditis but may be underdiagnosed. We describe a case of reactivated ciHHV-6 myocarditis successfully treated with antiviral therapy. Our case demonstrates the need for a greater awareness of ciHHV-6 as an etiology of myocarditis, as prompt treatment can improve outcomes.

BACKGROUND: Obesity is a known risk factor for heart failure. The prevalence of both conditions has increased in Sweden the last decades. Obesity surgery has been shown to improve cardiac function. We therefore investigated whether the risk of heart failure was lower in obese patients after bariatric surgery compared with obese patients without surgical intervention. METHODS AND RESULTS: From the Swedish National Patient Registry we created a cohort including 47,859 patients aged 18-74 years with a primary diagnosis of obesity from 2000 to 2011...

BACKGROUND: The impact of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) on respiratory and peripheral muscle oxygenation and perfusion during inspiratory muscle fatigue in patients with chronic heart failure has not been established. METHODS AND RESULTS: Twenty-six patients with chronic heart failure were randomly assigned to either 8 weeks of IMT or to a control group. Inspiratory fatigue was induced by a progressive inspiratory resistive loading protocol until there was an inability to sustain inspiratory pressure, when the inspiratory muscle metaboreflex should be activated...

BACKGROUND: Heart failure (HF) disproportionately afflicts older adults. Dietary sodium indiscretion is frequently implicated in HF decompensation. The affinity for and ability to taste salt in this process is unexplored. We sought to evaluate differences in salt taste by age and HF diagnosis and to map changes following hospitalization for acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF). METHODS: Seventy-two subjects underwent initial salt-taste testing during hospitalization for ADHF...

BACKGROUND: Clinical risk factors associated with heart failure (HF) symptoms in aortic stenosis (AS) patients with preserved ejection fraction (EF) have not been fully identified. We hypothesized that left ventricular (LV) diastolic stiffness is associated with HF symptoms in patients with AS. METHODS AND RESULTS: We retrospectively evaluated 275 patients with at least moderate AS (aortic valve area < 1.5cm(2)) and preserved EF (EF ≥50%). LV diastolic stiffness was evaluated using echocardiographic parameters, diastolic wall strain (DWS, a measure of LV wall stiffness) and KLV (a marker of LV chamber stiffness)...

BACKGROUND: Giant cell myocarditis (GCM) is a lethal, rapidly progressive disease, for which heart transplantation (HTx) is the treatment of choice. We sought to describe the characteristics and outcomes of patients with GCM who undergo HTx. METHODS AND RESULTS: Methods and Results: We used the UNOS thoracic organ transplantation to identify adults with GCM as the primary diagnosis and compared their characteristics and outcomes with patients who were transplanted for other types of myocarditides and for idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDCMP)...

BACKGROUND: Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) is a clinical syndrome characterized by impaired exercise capacity due to dyspnea and fatigue. The pathophysiological mechanisms underlying the exercise intolerance in HFpEF are not well established. We sought to evaluate the effects of inspiratory muscle function on exercise tolerance in symptomatic patients with HFpEF. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 74 stable symptomatic patients with HFpEF and NYHA II-III underwent a cardiopulmonary exercise test between June 2012 and May 2016...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous ventricular restoration therapy using left ventricle (LV) partitioning Parachute device has emerged as a clinical treatment option for LV apical aneurysm post extensive anterior myocardial infarction (AMI). We assessed changes of diastolic mechanics and accompanied functional improvements following LV parachute device implantation by cardiac computed tomography (CCT). METHODS AND RESULTS: CCT data from 28 patients in the pre- and post-implantation of LV parachute device implantation...

BACKGROUND: The impact of aortic insufficiency (AI) on the morbidity and mortality of left ventricular assist device (LVAD) patients remains controversial. This study's aim was to assess the hemodynamics of LVAD patients with at least mild AI, at baseline and in response to device speed changes. METHODS AND RESULTS: Asymptomatic LVAD patients were prospectively enrolled and underwent a hemodynamic and echocardiographic ramp study. Hemodynamics at rest and in response to device speed changes were compared between patients with at least mild AI at their baseline speed and patients without AI...
