AIMS: To evaluate the relationship between an incremental model including cardiovascular risk factors, carotid disease, and inflammatory biomarkers to predict the presence of obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 134 consecutive and asymptomatic intermediate-risk patients (mean age 61 ± 9 years, 52% men) were enrolled. Each subject underwent circulating levels assessment of interleukin (IL)-2r, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and carotid and coronary artery evaluation using carotid ultrasound and coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA), respectively...

AIMS: Recent studies have shown that exercise-induced pulmonary hypertension (EIPH) is not rare in patients with preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). However, the determinants and clinical implication of EIPH in these patients are unclear. METHODS AND RESULTS: This study included 1383 patients who were referred for exercise echocardiography to evaluate unexplained exertional dyspnoea or chest discomfort. Pulmonary artery systolic pressure (PASP) was estimated from the maximal velocity of the tricuspid regurgitant jet added to a right atrial pressure of 10 mmHg...

AIMS: Recent studies suggested that even non-obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) increases major cardiovascular adverse events (MACE) rate. Aim of this study was to evaluate whether coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) may detect specific plaque characteristics that may affect prognosis in patients with non-obstructive CAD. METHODS: We enrolled 245 patients who underwent CCTA between April 2004 and April 2007 for suspected CAD and were found to have non-obstructive CAD...

AIMS: Left atrial (LA) function index (LAFI) is a rhythm-independent index that combines LA emptying fraction (LAEF), adjusted LA volume (LAVi), and stroke volume. We evaluated LAFI as a predictor of long-term survival in outpatients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). METHODS AND RESULTS: For 3 years, we followed up 203 outpatients with a left ventricular ejection fraction <40%, who were clinically stable and on optimal therapy. The endpoint was all-cause death...

AIMS: Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) has been employed to assess the composition of the atherosclerotic plaques in native coronary arteries. However, little is known about the detection of neoatherosclerosis by NIRS in in-stent restenosis (ISR). The aim of the study was to assess the relationship between the distribution of lipid determined by NIRS and morphology of ISR on optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS AND RESULTS: We performed both NIRS and OCT in 39 drug-eluting stents with ISR...

AIMS: Left ventricular (LV) strain provides incremental values to LV ejection fraction (LVEF) in predicting outcome. We sought to investigate if similar relationship is observed between left atrial (LA) emptying fraction and LA strain. METHODS AND RESULTS: In this study, we selected 50 healthy subjects, 50 patients with dilated, 50 hypertrophic, and 50 infiltrative (light-chain (AL) amyloidosis) cardiomyopathy (CMP). Echocardiographic measures included LVEF and LA emptying fraction as well as LV and LA longitudinal strain (LVLS and LALS)...

AIMS: The aim of the present study was to assess the association of the presence and amount of late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) at cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) with cardiovascular adverse events in patients with orthotopic heart transplantation (HTx). METHODS AND RESULTS: We enrolled 48 patients (mean age, 54.7 ± 14.6 years; 37 men) at various stages after HTx. All patients underwent standard CMR at 1.5 T, to characterize both cardiac anatomy and LGE. Late gadolinium enhancement was detected in 26 patients (54%)...
