Iatrogenic aortic dissection during percutaneous coronary intervention is a rare but serious complication. Both conservative and surgical approaches have been proposed as management strategies. We describe a case of an 87-year-old female who presented with an acute coronary syndrome complicated by the development of an ascending aortic dissection during percutaneous intervention, and we provide a brief review of the literature.

Although anticoagulation remains the mainstay of therapy for patients with venous thromboembolism, guidelines recommend the use of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters in those who fail anticoagulation or have contraindications to its use. Short-term use of filters has proven effective in reducing the rate of pulmonary embolism. However, their extended use is associated with a variety of complications such as thrombosis, filter migration, or caval perforation, thus making a case for timely filter retrieval. This is the case of a 68-year-old female with a history of chronic oral anticoagulation use for multiple deep venous thrombi (DVT) and pulmonary emboli (PE) who required cervical and thoracic spinal intervention for spondylosis and foramina stenosis...

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the leading cause of death worldwide and represent a great challenge for modern research and medicine. Despite advances in preventing and treating CVD over the decades, there remains an urgent need to develop sensitive and safe methods for early detection and personalized treatment. With refinements of molecular imaging technologies such as positron emission tomography (PET), noninvasive imaging of CVDs is experiencing impressive progress in both preclinical and clinical settings...

Heart failure has mortality rates that parallel those of breast cancer. Current management strategies include neurohormonal blockade, rate control measures, natriuretic peptide preservation, implantation of mechanical assist devices, and heart transplantation. Despite these strategies, however, the failing myocardium remains energy depleted. New strategies to promote metabolic recovery are being developed to potentially augment current treatment guidelines. For example, an unexpected finding of our own studies showed that mechanical unloading with assist devices in advanced-stage heart failure restored metabolic flux...

Epicardial fat is a unique adipose tissue located between the myocardium and the visceral layer of pericardium. This tissue is characterized by highly active fatty acid metabolism and highly expressed thermogenic genes. Epicardial fat and the underlying myocardium share the same microcirculation, suggesting a close and strong interaction between these two structures. Under physiological conditions, epicardial fat protects and supports the heart to exert its normal function. Many clinical studies have shown significant associations between increased amounts of epicardial fat and coronary artery disease (CAD)...

Over the course of the day, the heart is challenged with dramatic fluctuations in energetic demand and nutrient availability. It is therefore not surprising that rhythms in cardiac metabolism have been reported at multiple levels, including the utilization of glucose, fatty acids, and amino acids. Evidence has emerged suggesting that the cardiomyocyte circadian clock is in large part responsible for governing cardiac metabolic rhythms. In doing so, the cardiomyocyte clock temporally partitions ATP generation for increased contractile function during the active period, promotes nutrient storage at the end of the active period, and facilitates protein turnover (synthesis and degradation) during the beginning of the sleep phase...

In most clinical cases, left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) occurs over time from persistent cardiac stress. At the molecular level, this results in both transient and long-term changes to metabolic, sarcomeric, ion handling, and stress signaling pathways. Although this is initially an adaptive change, the mechanisms underlying LVH eventually lead to maladaptive changes including fibrosis, decreased cardiac function, and failure. Understanding the regulators of long-term changes, which are largely driven by transcriptional remodeling, is a crucial step in identifying novel therapeutic targets for preventing the downstream negative effects of LVH and treatments that could reverse or prevent it...

Shumin Li, Anisha A Gupte
Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) has similar prevalence and prognosis as HF with reduced EF, but there is no approved treatment for HFpEF. HFpEF is common in postmenopausal women, which suggests that the absence of estrogen (E2) plays a role in its pathophysiology. With the country's growing elderly population, the prevalence of HFpEF is rapidly increasing. This has triggered a renewed urgency in finding novel approaches to preventing and slowing the progression of HFpEF. In this review, we address the role of E2 in left ventricular diastolic function and how it impacts women with HFpEF as well as animal models...

Roughly 10% of lung transplant recipients experience airway complications. Although the incidence has decreased dramatically since the first lung transplants were performed in the 1960s, airway complications have continued to adversely affect outcomes. Bronchoscopic interventions such as balloon dilation, airway stenting, and endobronchial electrocautery play an important role in ameliorating the morbidity and mortality associated with these complications. This review describes the array of bronchoscopic interventions used to treat airway complications after lung transplant and how these techniques can be used in nontransplant settings as well...

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Despite regular advances in pharmacology, there remains great potential for addressing structural deficiencies, especially in emphysema. The loss of alveolar attachments to small bronchial tubes results in diffuse loss of elastic recoil and airway collapse during exhalation. This appears physiologically as hyperinflation of lung volumes with flattened diaphragms and significantly elevated residual volumes (RV) on pulmonary function testing (predicted RV > 175%)...
