ST elevation myocardial infarction in a 61-year-old man with a history of previous coronary artery bypass grafts. Spasm of collaterals to the circumflex coronary artery was the cause of acute presentation and was successfully treated by intracoronary nitrates. Chronic therapy with calcium channel blockers was added in the discharge medications chart.

The current document was developed by the working group on the 'application of cardiac magnetic resonance' of the Italian Society of Cardiology to provide a perspective on the current state of technical advances and clinical cardiac magnetic resonance applications and to inform cardiologists how to implement their clinical and diagnostic pathway with the introduction of this technique in the clinical practice. Appropriateness criteria were defined using a score system: score 1-3 = inappropriate (test is not generally acceptable and is not a reasonable approach for the indication), score 4-6 = uncertain (test may be generally acceptable and may be a reasonable approach for the indication but more research and/or patient information is needed to classify the indication definitively) and score 7-9 = appropriate (test is generally acceptable and is a reasonable approach for the indication)...

We report the case of early recurrence of Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy in an elderly woman with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis triggered by different stressors. A first episode with typical apical ballooning was anticipated by an emotional stress; a second, characterized by systolic anterior motion of the mitral valve associated with mitral regurgitation and severe intra-ventricular gradient, was precipitated by surgical stress and hypovolemia. We therefore hypothesize both a possible link between amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy, and between different stressors and different Tako-Tsubo patterns...

We report a case of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia complicating Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy. We hypothesize that increased adrenergic tone supposedly underlying transient apical ballooning syndrome may facilitate the onset of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardias in predisposed patients.

Loeffler endomyocardial fibrosis is a rare restrictive cardiomyopathy due to chronic eosinophilic exposure (Loeffler endomyocarditis). Loeffler endomyocarditis is associated with different eosinophilic disorders, including eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA). These images recapitulate all typical findings that can be observed in patients presenting with heart failure attributable to this specific cardiomyopathy associated with EGPA, a systemic medical condition that can be easily detectable just putting together different diagnostic elements...

Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) has emerged as a reliable and accurate diagnostic tool for the evaluation of patients with cardiac disease in several clinical settings and with proven additional diagnostic and prognostic value compared with other imaging modalities. This document has been developed by the working group on the 'application of CMR' of the Italian Society of Cardiology to provide a perspective on the current state of technical advances and clinical applications of CMR and to inform cardiologists on how to implement their clinical and diagnostic pathways with the inclusion of this technique in clinical practice...

BACKGROUND: The population of adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD) is increasing and aging, and a large percentage of this population is now over 65 years of age. For this reason, it is probable that acquired coronary artery disease (CAD) will become an important issue that needs to be addressed also in these patients. We retrospectively analyzed all ACHD patients who underwent surgery in our Institution with the aim to investigate the incidence of associated CAD and the results of surgical treatment...

AIMS: Conduction abnormalities following transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) are caused by damage of the aortoventricular conduction tissue during positioning of the valve. Therefore, our aim was to assess whether a higher difference between the long and short diameters of the elliptic aortoventricular annulus will possess higher forces on the annulus, and thus will be a predictor of pacemaker need following TAVR. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 123 patients who had the aortoventricular annulus measured by computed tomography angiography...

AIMS: To study the learning curve with the second-generation cryoballoon technology focusing on safety, efficacy and procedural characteristics. METHODS: We included 300 patients (men 64.6%, mean age 58.3 ± 12.4 years), 240 of whom were treated by four operators without prior experience in atrial fibrillation ablation and compared them with 60 consecutive patients treated by senior operator. To study the learning curves, we divided the study period into two trimesters and analyzed procedure duration, fluoroscopy times, complications, characteristics of the freeze-thaw cycles and midterm outcomes...

AIMS: Obesity is associated with an increased incidence of mortality. The Sibutramine Cardiovascular Outcomes (SCOUT) trial can provide the first evidence of the effect of intentional weight loss on mortality in an obese population at high risk. METHODS: SCOUT was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial testing sibutramine vs. placebo. Eligibility for the trial required both men and women aged at least 55 years, with BMI of at least 27 kg/m and 45 kg/m or less...

Neuroimaging has a key role in the assessment and treatment of acute stroke. Cerebral computer tomography is the first step to differentiate hemorragic from ischemic stroke and to detect, in the latter, early signs representative of the lesion severity and predicting a possible hemorrhagic infarction after thrombolytic treatment.Advanced neuroimaging techniques are relevant in the assessment of the ischemic and/or hypo-perfused area, being an essential tool in uncertain situations or when the time of symptoms onset is unavailable, increasing the efficacy and safety of endovenous thrombolysis by enlarging its therapeutic window and leading to more accurate selection of patients to be treated...
