OBJECTIVE: To evaluate efficacy and safety of 60mg and 120mg Fimasartan (FMS) alone or combined with 12.5mg hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) in Mexican population. METHODS: Six month, treat-to-target, open study in subjects with grade 1-2 hypertension. Subjects were initially treated with 60mg FMS once daily; on week 8, those with Diastolic Blood Pressure (DBP) <90mmHg continued on the same FMS dose during the rest of the study while those with DBP ≥90mmHg were randomized to either 120mg FMS or 60mg FMS+12...

Mexico has been positioned as the country with the highest mortality attributed to myocardial infarction among the members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. This rate responds to multiple factors, including a low rate of reperfusion therapy and the absence of a coordinated system of care. Primary angioplasty is the reperfusion method recommended by the guidelines, but requires multiple conditions that are not reached at all times. Early pharmacological reperfusion of the culprit coronary artery and early coronary angiography (pharmacoinvasive strategy) can be the solution to the logistical problem that primary angioplasty rises...

OBJECTIVE: The prevalence of coronary artery calcification (CAC), a specific marker of atherosclerosis, is unknown in Mexico. Our aim was to investigate the prevalence and quantity of CAC and its associations with cardiovascular risk factors in Mexican population. METHODS: CAC was measured by multidetector computed tomography in asymptomatic subjects who participated in the Genetics of Atherosclerotic Disease study. Cardiovascular risk factors and medication were recorded...

OBJETIVE: To evaluate left ventricular mechanical dyssynchrony (LVMD) associated to prolonged right ventricular pacing through an innovative imaging technique, as a pilot study in Uruguay. METHODS: We performed 99mTc-MIBI gated-SPECT and phase analysis in 12 patients with pacemakers implanted at least one year before scintigraphy due to advanced atrioventricular block. Clinical data, QRS duration, rate, mode and site of pacing in right ventricle, chamber diameters, presence and extension of myocardial scar and ischemia and rest LVEF were recorded...

: Fragmentation of QRS complex (QRSf) is an easily evaluable, non-invasive electrocardiographic parameter that represents depolarization anomalies and that has been associated to several adverse outcomes such as sudden death, fibrosis, arrhythmic burden and worse prognosis in different conditions, including coronary artery disease (CAD). We present the case of a 69-year old male referred for study with symptoms of chronic stable angina. His electrocardiogram showed sinus rhythm, absence of Q waves, but the presence of QRSf in the inferior leads and V4-V6...

OBJECTIVE: Establish the morbidity and mortality of patients with univentricular hearts who underwent repeat median sternotomy at the Instituto Nacional de Pediatría METHOD: We retrospectively review the clinical charts of all patient who underwent repeat median sternotomy from 2001 to 2016. RESULTS: Sixty-five patients underwent 76 surgeries through repeat median sternotomy. Fifty-nine patients had a first repeat median sternotomy with a mean age of 36months (range 4-176months) and a mean weight of 12...

: Cardiovascular diseases are an important cause of morbidity and mortality in the general population. In this sense the autonomic imbalance is the cornerstone of the physiopathology underlying the development of these diseases. The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of exercise training on heart rate variability (HRV) in adult patients with chronic heart failure. METHODOLOGY: A systematic literature review was conducted on electronic databases. The considered studies were randomized clinical trials, quasi-experimental studies with non-randomized control group, quasi-experimental studies with analysis of pre and post intervention and crossover studies with randomly assigned training and detraining periods...

INTRODUCTION: Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery remains the gold standard in the treatment of multivessel coronary disease. Several studies have shown that CABG with bilateral internal mammary arteries (BIMA) has better results in long-term survival. METHODOLOGY: We conducted a retrospective investigation in CABG surgeries with BIMA, performed from January 2012 to December 2015 in the National Cardiovascular Institute, INCOR, EsSalud. The objectives were determine the mortality and major cardiovascular events at 30 days follow up...

Portopulmonary hypertension (PPH) is a rare global entity, although epidemiological data are unknown in Mexico. However, chronic liver diseases are very prevalent in Mexico. The PPH is the 4th subtype in frequency in the group of pulmonary arterial hypertension. Its diagnosis is within 2 groups: patients with suspected pulmonary hypertension and candidates for orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). Both echocardiogram and a right cardiac catheterization are crucial for diagnosis in both scenarios. The PPH is a challenge for OLT since it can increase perioperative mortality significantly...

OBJECTIVE: To show surgical removal of the left atrial appendage in patients with rheumatic mitral valve disease and long standing persistent atrial fibrillation decreases the possibility of stroke. Therefore, long-term oral anticoagulation after surgery can be eliminated. METHOD: A descriptive, prospective, observational study was conducted in 27 adult patients with rheumatic mitral valve disease and long standing persistent atrial fibrillation undergone mitral valve surgery and left atrial appedage surgical removal...

INTRODUCTION: Physical training programs (PTP) have shown several beneficial effects for patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD), particularly by increasing survival and quality of life. Physiological response during the effort and recovery phases of an exercise testing, is one of the strongest prognostic markers among patients with CVD. A reasonable mechanism that explains those training effects on survival is through the adaptations seen on heart rate recovery (HRR) and oxygen uptake kinetics at the post-exertional phase (RVO2)...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: The association of univentricular heart with double inlet and Ebstein's "like" anomaly of the common atrioventricular valve is extremely rare. METHODS: Two hearts with this association are described with the segmental sequential system which determine the atrial situs, the types of atrioventricular and ventriculoarterial connections and associated anomalies. RESULTS: Both hearts had atrial situs solitus, and a univentricular heart with common atrioventricular valve, a foramen primum and double outlet ventricle with normal crossed great arteries...
