AIMS: Poor data exist about cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) findings in a large sample of acute myocarditis with different clinical presentations (heart failure, arrhythmias, and infarct-like presentation). METHODS: Five hundred and forty-three in-patients with a clinical suspected of acute myocarditis confirmed by CMR were enrolled. The clinical indications to perform CMR were chest pain and/or dyspnea and/or palpitations, or effort intolerance/malaise in the last month; elevated troponin and/or new ventricular dysfunction, and/or new ECG abnormalities; and suspected inflammatory cause...

: Paravalvular leak (PVL) is an uncommon but serious complication associated with the implantation of prosthetic valves. Following aortic valve replacement, up to 5% of patients affected by PVL develop clinical symptoms of heart failure, hemolysis or both. Percutaneous treatment of PVL has emerged instead of conventional surgery, as a well tolerated and less invasive procedure but remains a challenge. We present the case of a young woman with mechanical aortic and mitral prostheses, who presented surgical aortic PVL caused by a serious frailty of native annulus, became symptomatic after 5 months and was successfully percutaneously treated with an Amplatzer Duct Occluder device...

: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) accounts for more than 17 million deaths per year worldwide. It has been estimated that the influence of lifestyle on CVD mortality amounts to 13.7% for smoking, 13.2% for poor diet, and 12% for inactive lifestyle. These results deeply impact both the healthy status of individuals and their skills in working. The impact of CVD on productivity loss accounts for the 24% in total costs for CVD management.Mediterranean diet (MedD) can positively impact on natural history of CVD. It is characterized by a relatively high consumption of inexpensive and genuine food such as cereals, vegetables, legumes, nuts, fish, fresh fruits, and olive oil as the principal source of fat, low meat consumption and low-to-moderate consumption of milk, dairy products, and wine...

: Aneurysms of the descending thoracic and thoracoabdominal aorta are life-threatening conditions. All aneurysms which have not yet had an indication for the treatment need regular follow-up to prevent rupture or dissection. We present a case of a patient with a giant aneurysm of the thoracoabdominal aorta who was denied both surgery and endovascular treatment.

: Leaflet perforation is a frequently underdiagnosed mechanism of aortic regurgitation, often underdiagnosed by two-dimensional echocardiography. Three-dimensional echocardiography allows a detailed assessment of cusp anatomy, improving diagnosis compared with two-dimensional echo.

AIM: Osteoprotegerin (OPG) is associated with a poor prognosis in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). OPG has also been associated with fibrosis and collagen cross-linking, which increase arterial and left ventricle (LV) myocardial stiffness. Little is known about the relation of OPG and LV structure and function in African-Americans who are disproportionately affected by HFpEF. METHODS AND RESULTS: Our analysis included 1172 participants with preserved LV ejection fraction (>50%) from the African-American cohort in the Genetic Epidemiology Network of Arteriopathy Study (mean age 63 years, 72% female)...

AIMS: Statins are a widely recognized weapon in the primary and secondary prevention of coronary artery disease for their pleiotropic effects. However, recent reports from the cerebrovascular and pharmacological literature are insinuating concerns about a potential increase in the haemorrhagic risk among statin users.The effect of statins in postoperative bleeding should be carefully investigated in major cardiac surgery that exposes per se to risk of bleeding. METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, we evaluated 441 patients who received atorvastatin until surgery and 213 patients who had never been treated with statins, undergoing elective primary isolated on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting...

AIMS: Worsening renal function (WRF) occurs in one-third of patients hospitalized for acute decompensated heart failure. Recently, WRF was categorized in two subtypes: persistent and transient WRF. Thus, we sought to investigate the different prognostic impact of persistent vs. transient WRF; we also evaluate the relation of two WRF phenotypes with congestion, B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) changes, and diuretic response at discharge. METHODS: The prospective was a single centre study including patients screened for interventional Diur-heart failure Trial (NCT01441245)...

AIMS: Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CIAKI) is a common complication after coronary angiography or percutaneous revascularization (PCI). This study aimed to investigate the association of CIAKI with long-term cardiovascular adverse events. METHODS: In total, 980 patients undergoing coronary angiography/PCI were assessed in this prospective cohort study. The primary endpoint was major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events (MACCE) and cardiac death (CVD) during an 8-year follow-up...

: We reported the case of a 61-year-old woman with a suspected postinfarction ventricular septal defect. The predominantly diastolic flow pattern at our echocardiographic assessment was inconsistent with this diagnosis. A computed tomography revealed a left anterior descending artery to right ventricle fistula. This case highlights the importance of echocardiographic assessment in the differential diagnosis between ventricular septal defect and coronary artery fistula.

AIMS: Alternative splicing represents a key mechanism of gene regulation. Despite its role in regulating cell pluripotency and differentiation being well known, the underlining mechanisms are still poorly studied. Here, we investigated the possible involvement of splicing regulators during the different steps of endothelial cell differentiation through expression studies on human circulating progenitors. METHODS: Total RNAs were extracted from all cells and reverse-transcribed...

AIMS: Increased right atrial size is related to adverse prognosis in pulmonary hypertension. The potential incremental value of right atrial function assessment is still unclear. We tested the relationship between right atrial two-dimensional speckle-tracking echocardiography impairment and hemodynamic, functional and clinical deterioration in patients with pulmonary hypertension. METHODS: We prospectively evaluated 36 patients (27 female, 9 male; mean age 68 ± 13 years) with suspected pulmonary hypertension undergoing right heart catheterization and 16 matched controls...

: Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common cardiomyopathy, mainly caused by mutations in genes encoding for sarcomere proteins. Even though many mutations have been recognized to be causative of HCM, specific HCM phenotypes can be rarely predicted by the genotype, possibly as a consequence of the presence of still unknown disease-modifying genes [Maron et al. (2013). Lancet 381:242-55]. In this very peculiar case of HCM hypertrophy localized to left ventricle, mid-wall segments coexisted with a restrictive filling pattern and an apical wall thinning mimicking hypoplasia of left ventricle apex...
