According to current guidelines, in patients without additional risk factors who underwent aortic valve replacement with a bioprosthesis, anticoagulation in the first 3 months after surgery is still a matter of debate. According to current evidence, aspirin in low doses is a reasonable alternative to vitamin K antagonists (VKA). We compared the incidence of thrombotic and hemorrhagic complications in patients with low thrombotic risk who underwent aortic valve replacement with a bioprosthesis in the National Institute of Cardiology of Ignacio Chávez of Mexico...

OBJECTIVES: To establish the prognostic value with sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value for the OESIL syncope risk score to predict the presentation of severe outcomes (death, invasive interventions, and readmission) within 6 months of observation in adults who consult to the emergency department because of syncope. METHODS: Observational, prospective, and multicenter study with enrolment of subjects older than 18 years, who consulted to the emergency department because of syncope...

OBJECTIVE: Chest pain is a major reason for emergency room care worldwide. The relationship between the Modified Heart Score and the presence of major cardiac events at 30 days after emergency admission was evaluated. METHODS: Retrospective, observational study in a single center. In patients older than 18 years old, who were treated for chest pain, in whom the Modified HEART Score was applied at admission and related to the presence of major cardiac events (myocardial infarction, death, hospitalization due to cardiac causes and percutaneous coronary revascularization Or surgical) at 30 days of follow-up...

Hypertension is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Its prevalence is increasing worldwide, and is more common in low and middle-income countries. The effectiveness of hypertension treatment is determined by health cost, awareness, and patients' compliance with the treatment. People worldwide with an adequate control of hypertension correspond to a very small percentage in low and medium income countries as the Latin America ones. Between the causes to explain these are the low availability, affordability and adherence to treatment with multiple pills...

Physical examination as a central guidance of medical practice has been largely displaced by technology in nearly all branches of modern medicine. However, physical examination remains a useful resource available at the bedside that provides the clinician with a great amount of valuable data. Essentially, physical examination signs in cardiology possess a good positive clinical value but lacks negative clinical value. This review aims to present available evidence regarding the efficacy of physical examination in some of the most common conditions in cardiology...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the frequency, type and predictors of pleuropulmonary complications in the first thirty postoperative days of patients undergoing surgery without cardiopulmonary bypass. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was carried out between January 2013 and December 2014. It includes all patients with congenital heart disease who underwent cardiac surgery with a sternal or thoracic approach, without cardiopulmonary bypass with a registered admission to Neonatal or Pediatric Intensive Care...

OBJECTIVES: Fasciculo-ventricular (FV) accessory pathways (AP's) and right anteroseptal (RAS) AP's share similar anatomic locations and electrocardiographic characteristics. The objective of this paper is to compare these features in children. METHODS: All patients with manifest preexcitation who underwent an electrophysiological study were included. Fasciculo-ventricular AP's were defined by the presence of an HV interval≤32ms and a prolongation of the AH without changes in the HV interval or the degree of preexcitation during atrial pacing...

The right-side aortic arch may be associated with aberrant left subclavian artery, in some cases this artery originates from an aneurismal dilatation of the aorta called Kommerell diverticulum. We report 2 cases of vascular ring formed by a right-side aortic arch, anomalous left subclavian artery, Kommerell's diverticulum and left patent ductus arteriosus.

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/dysplasia is an inherited autosomal dominant pathology with an estimated prevalence of 1:2,500 to 1:5,000, being higher in males (3:1). It is characterized histologically by replacement of cardiomyocytes by fibro-adipose tissue, which predisposes to ventricular arrhythmias, right ventricular failure, and sudden cardiac death. The main goal of treatment is to reduce the risk of sudden death and improve the quality of life of patients. We present the case of a 23 year old woman whose clinical symptoms started with palpitations, chest pain with physical activity, syncope and headache 6 years ago during her first pregnancy...

BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the most important cause of mortality in Latin America while peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is the third leading cause of atherosclerotic cardiovascular morbidity. OBJECTIVE: To establish the prevalence of PAD and the distribution of traditional CVD risk factors in a population from the Department of Cauca, Colombia. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was performed in a total of 10,000 subjects aged ≥40 years from 36 municipalities...

OBJECTIVE: Evaluate the efficacy of natriuretic peptide (NP)-guided therapy compared to clinically-guided therapy reducing mortality and hospitalization in chronic heart failure (HF) patients. METHODS: Randomized clinical trials (RCT) were selected through a systematic review. Four meta-analyses were conducted for the outcomes of overall mortality, HF-related mortality, overall hospitalization, and HF-related hospitalization. Heterogeneity between studies and publication bias were assessed...

The safety culture is one of the requirements to prevent the occurrence of adverse effects, however has not been studied in the field of cardiology. The objective is to evaluate the safety culture in a cardiology unit has implemented and certified an integrated quality and risk management for patient safety system. METHODS: A transversal observational study was made in 2 consecutive years using the survey "Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture" of the "Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality" in its Spanish version (42 items grouped into 12 dimensions) in all staff...

INTRODUCTION: The World Health Organization has established a maximum noise level of 40 decibels (dB) for an intensive care unit. The aim of this study was to compare the noise level in 2 different intensive care units at a tertiary care center. METHODS: In an cross-sectional design, the maximum noise level was analyzed within the intensive coronary care unit and intensive care unit with a digital meter. A measurement in 4 different points of each room with 5minute intervals for a period of 60minutes were performed at 7:30, 14:30 and 20:30...

The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) provides recommendations to improve the editorial standards and scientific quality of biomedical journals. These recommendations range from uniform technical requirements to more complex and elusive editorial issues including ethical aspects of the scientific process. Recently, registration of clinical trials, conflicts of interest disclosure, and new criteria for authorship - emphasizing the importance of responsibility and accountability -, have been proposed...

OBJECTIVE: Rationale for non-routine use of inferior venous cava filters (IVCF) in pulmonary embolism (PE) patients. METHODS: Thrombosis mechanisms involved with IVCF placement and removal, the blood-contacting medical device inducing clotting, and the inorganic polyphosphate in the contact activation pathway were analyzed. In addition, we analyzed clinical evidence from randomized trials, including patients with and without cancer. Furthermore, we estimated the absolute risk reduction (ARR), the relative risk reduction (RRR), and the number needed to treat (NNT) based on the results of each study using a frequency table...
