AIM: A systematic review and meta-analysis, evaluating ischemic conditioning during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS & RESULTS: A database search of randomized trials of ischemic conditioning in PCI created three subgroups for meta-analysis: mortality in elective PCI with remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPreC; subgroup 1a, n = 3) - no outcome difference between RIPreC and control (odds ratio: 0.34; 95% CI: 0.08-1.56), myocardial salvage index in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) with RIPreC (subgroup 1b, n = 2) - favored RIPreC (mean difference: 0...

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) was first used in clinical practice in 2002. Since 2002, there has been a rapid increase in TAVI activity in patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis. This has been supported by systematic randomized data comparing TAVI against the gold standard treatment for the last 50 years' surgical aortic valve replacement. TAVI is now currently a recommended therapeutic intervention in the treatment of severe aortic stenosis patients who are deemed either high risk or inoperable...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an increasingly recognized cause of acute coronary syndrome in young patients. No clear factors exist to predict the natural history of the disease and the prognosis of the condition. Furthermore, current management practice of SCAD is based mainly on retrospective data and case series and clear management guidelines are lacking. In this article, we present a series of cases of patients with SCAD and we will discuss the different clinical presentations, the diagnostic approaches and the options of management of this cohort of patients...

Ethical behavior has always been deeply ingrained in surgical culture, but ethical deliberation has only recently become an important component of cardiac surgical practice. In our earlier review, we covered a range of issues including several related to informed consent, conflict of interest, professional self-regulation and innovation, among many others. This update covers several topics of interest to cardiac surgeons and cardiologists, focusing on controversial issues specific to the practice of cardiothoracic surgery: informed consent, relations with hospitals and euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide...

Endocarditis of a prosthetic heart valve is a life-threatening condition that is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Perivalvular extension in infective endocarditis includes complications such as periannular or intramyocardial abscesses, pseudoaneurysms and fistulae. The incidence of perivalvular extension ranges from 10 to 30% in native valve endocarditis and 30 to 55% in prosthetic aortic-valve endocarditis. Herein, we describe a case of a 66-year-old man who presented endocarditis of a prosthetic aortic valve complicated by infective pseudoaneurysm with localization next to the right coronary sinus of Valsalva...

We report the case of a 53-year-old woman admitted for typical chest pain and a diagnosis of Takotsubo syndrome (TTS). Initial echocardiographic presentation was characterized by apical and mid-ventricular akinesis and basal hyper-kinesis. Unexpectedly, later after admission, echocardiography showed recovered apical akinesis with an apparent 'migration' of systolic dysfunction to mid-ventricular segment and hyper-kinesis of apical and basal segments. One week after admission, left ventricular contractility completely recovered and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging did not show signs of subendocardial late-enhancement and myocardial edema...

AIM: Anderson-Fabry disease (AFD) is a hereditary disorder caused by a deficiency in the lysosomal enzyme α-galactosidase A which causes dysfunctions in multiple organ systems. Cardiac manifestation includes left ventricular hypertrophy, thickening of the valves, conduction disturbances and in the late phase, extensive areas of myocardial fibrosis with increased risk of sudden cardiac death. Case example: A case of AFD with exclusive cardiac involvement is described. During follow-up, due to the high risk of life-threatening arrhythmic events, implantation of an implantable cardioverter defibrillator is performed...

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is an established therapy for patients with aortic stenosis and a high surgical risk. Recent data on intermediate-risk patients will probably enlarge the indication for TAVR. In the beginning of the TAVR era, relevant (>mild) aortic regurgitation (AR) was a common finding after TAVR; it was associated with worse outcome compared with patients without significant AR. To date, several improvements in imaging, grading of severity and treatment have been done and will be discussed in this article...

The diagnosis of acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is one of the most important problems in medical emergencies. Commonly accepted criterion for diagnosis of deep venous thrombosis is the lack of vein compressibility assessed by Compression UltraSonography. Echocardiography represents an easily available and reliable imaging technique in the clinical setting of hemodynamic instability and in the direct visualization of thromboembolic masses in the right heart chambers. Moreover, echocardiography is useful for prognostic stratification after acute PE as right ventricular dysfunction is the most important predictor of mortality in this context...

Poor psychological health (e.g., depression and anxiety) is prospectively associated with adverse cardiac outcomes. In contrast, there is increasing evidence that positive psychological constructs like happiness, optimism and gratitude are independently and prospectively linked to better health behaviors and superior cardiac prognosis in people with and without heart disease. However, a critical question is whether such positive states and traits are modifiable. Recent studies of systematic positive psychology interventions designed to promote well-being have shown promise in patients with heart disease, and more data are needed to learn whether these interventions are effective and whether they can be broadly applied to impact public health...

Manjiri Joshi, Robert Tulloh
Kawasaki disease is an acute, systemic vasculitis of childhood and confers a 25% risk of developing coronary artery aneurysms. Its etiology is unknown, but the incidence is increasing rapidly with linked gene polymorphisms having been identified. A constellation of symptoms, epidemics and seasonality all implicate an unidentified infective or environmental cause. Intravenous immunoglobulin therapy, aspirin and steroids all form the mainstay of acute treatment and reduces the incidence of coronary artery aneurysms if given before 7 days...

Calcific aortic stenosis (AS) is one of the most common acquired valvular heart diseases in industrialized nations. It is a slowly progressive disease and with the aging population, the prevalence of AS is expected to increase. Doppler echocardiography is used to classify patients based on severity of stenosis. Research efforts on how to better identify and risk-assess these patients are currently underway using advanced imaging modalities and serum biomarkers. Thus far, medications for AS prevention have been unsuccessful...
