Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) is an established therapeutic option for the subset of patients with heart failure (HF), reduced ejection fraction (EF) and dyssynchrony evidenced by electrocardiography. Benefit from CRT has been proven in many clinical trials, yet a sizeable proportion of these patients with wide QRS do not respond to this intervention, despite the updated practice guidelines. Several echocardiographic indices, targeting mechanical rather than electrical dyssynchrony, have been suggested to address this issue, but research so far has not succeeded in providing a single and simple measurement with adequate sensitivity and specificity for identification of responders...

AIMS: The aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of metabolic syndrome (MetS) on clinical severity and long term prognosis in patients with myocardial infarction with ST segment elevation (STEMI). METHODS: We examined 507 patients with STEMI who were admitted for primary percutaneous coronary intervention classified according to the presence of MetS using American Heart Association and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute definition. After applying these criteria, the patients were categorized in patients with MetS and without MetS...

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in women in the western countries. Women are less likely to seek medical assistance and are often misdiagnosed, facts that increase incrementally their CVD mortality. Exercise stress test is often non diagnostic and thus dobutamine stress echocardiography represents an excellent tool in the evaluation of coronary artery disease in women. Especially with the additional use of echocardiographic contrast agents that help to overcome the technical difficulties in the evaluation of the female small,usually, cardiac chambers, dobutamine stress echocardiography seems to be the most attractive non-invasive, radiation free diagnostic imaging modality, in the daily clinical practice with a proven diagnostic and prognostic value...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the protective activity of tanshinone in a rat model of myocardial ischemia-reperfusion and determine the effect on the expression of Bcl-2 and Bax in cardiomyocytes. METHODS: We established a rat model of myocardial ischemia-reperfusion. Rats were randomly divided into blank (no surgery), saline, and low (2 mg/ml), medium (15 mg/ml), and high (50 mg/ml) dose tanshinone groups. We measured heart rate and Troponin levels (cTnI), performed TUNEL to detect cardiomyocyte apoptosis, and detected LDH and CK-MB activity in serum by ELISA...

Everolimus (EVE) is now approved by many agencies for the treatment of variable neoplasms. The risk of adverse events with these agent is not adequately defined. The purpose of this review was to summarize the everolimus - induced cardiotoxic effects to patients that received the specific drug as an antineoplastic factor and evaluate any possible anti-atherogenic effects due to systemic use of the drug. PubMed was searched for articles until August 2017. Articles included an expanded-access clinical trial, as well as phase 2 or 3 clinical trials (most of them were randomized)...

REVIEW
Stylianos Dragasis, Nikolaos Kafkas, Charalampos I Liakos
Radial artery use as a bypass conduit is well established during the last decades, in terms of both patency and safety. On the other hand, transradial catheterization causes a series of structural and functional changes to the vessel itself. Impairment of nitric oxide-dependent vasodilation and notable decrease on radial artery diameter due to intima thickening and hyperplasia, especially during the first 3 months after its cannulation, constitute some of the most important alterations on the radial artery wall and its function after a transradial coronary catheterization procedure...

BACKGROUND: Global longitudinal strain (GLS) has incremental value in assessing left ventricular (LV) function in severe aortic stenosis and is related to clinical outcome after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). We sought to identify relevant echocardiographic predictors of GLS improvement and myocardial function recovery after TAVR. METHODS: We analyzed baseline and 12-month follow-up echocardiograms for LV strain analysis from 123 patients who underwent at Emory University Hospital with the Edwards SAPIEN valve between 7/2007 and 7/2013...

BACKGROUND: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a multi-system, autoimmune disorder and confers one of the strongest risks for cardiovascular disease (CVD) morbidity and mortality. OBJECTIVE: To assess myocardial function and vascular stiffness in RA patients with and without cardiovascular risk factors (CVRFs) using cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR). METHODS: 23 RA patients with no CVRFs (17 female, mean age 52±13 years), 46 RA patients with CVRFs (32 female, mean age 53± 12), 50 normal controls (32 female, mean age 50±11 years), and 13 controls with CVRFs (7 female, mean age 55±7 years), underwent CMR at 1...

The development of stem-cell therapies for chronic ischemic heart failure is highly sought after to attempt to improve morbidity and mortality of this prevalent disease. This article reviews clinical trials investigating stem cell therapy for chronic ischemic heart failure. To generate this review article, PubMed was searched using keywords "stem cell therapy heart failure" with the article type "Clinical Trial" selected on 10/04/2016. The raw search yielded 156 articles. 53 articles were selected for inclusion in the review between the original literature search and manual research/cross-referencing...
