#1
REVIEW
Kalliopi Keramida, George Lazaros, Petros Nihoyannopoulos
Although hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common inherited cardiomyopathy worldwide, the criteria for its definition and most of the literature concern the left ventricle, confirming the theory that the right ventricle is the neglected one. Right ventricular (RV) involvement includes structural and functional changes with significant impact on clinical presentation and prognosis. The pattern of RV hypertrophy can be variable with possible dynamic obstruction. Histological findings suggest similar pathogenetic changes in both ventricles supporting the common myopathic process with sarcomeric mutations...

Clinical investigations in chronic heart failure (HF) have been increasingly including endpoints related to functional and exercise capacity. Noninvasive ventilation support (NIVS) constitutes a therapeutic option that could improve several markers of cardiovascular performance and functional capacity along with improvements in HF symptoms such as dyspnea. NIVS with bilevel positive airway pressure (BiPAP) is a therapeutic option that can be better tolerated by patients compared to continuous positive airway pressure (cPAP) and potentially improve heart failure patients' adherence...

BACKGROUND: Right ventricular pressure overload results in interventricular septal shift towards the left ventricle in patients with precapillary pulmonary hypertension (PH). We aimed to investigate the predictive role of the duration of septal curvature configuration during the cardiac cycle, as expressed by the novel marker curvature duration index (CDi) in precapillary PH. METHODS: This was a prospective study. All patients underwent cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR)...

BACKGROUND: Distal transradial access (dTRA) by the snuffbox approach for coronary catheterization has emerged as an alternative to the classic forearm TRA with certain advantages and limitations.The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the dTRA exclusively from the right arm. METHODS: Forty-nine consecutive patients (31 males and 18 females, mean age 64 ± 12 years), who were candidates for coronary catheterization in two cath laboratory centers, regardless of the indication, were recruited...

BACKGROUND: Achieving low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) target levels after an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is of paramount importance, often burdened by undertreatment and medication or lifestyle non-adherence issues. OBJECTIVE: We examined the effect of a patient-centered, physician-led motivational intervention following ACS on relevant secondary prevention aspects. METHODS: Design: The IDEAL-LDL is a single-center, randomized controlled clinical trial, conducted among patients hospitalized due to an ACS...

REVIEW

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a significant and ever-growing problem in Europe, accounting for nearly 45% of all deaths and leading to significant morbidity. Greece is one of the European Union member states that top the list of deaths due to ischemic heart disease and stroke, a fact that is mainly attributed to unfavorable changes in modifiable risk factors. The aim of this review is to examine the latest evidence on the most important CVD risk factors. According to studies conducted during the last two decades, the prevalence of arterial hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, diabetes mellitus, and obesity remained relatively stable or increased...

Smoking during pregnancy is a risk factor associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes. Despite the fact that these outcomes are well known, a considerable proportion of pregnant women continue to smoke during this critical period. This paper evaluates critically smoking cessation interventions targeting pregnant women. We describe the findings of key published studies, review papers and expert statements to report the efficacy and safety of strategies for smoking cessation in pregnancy, including counselling and pharmacotherapy...
