The main goal of the present document is to provide a set of practical recommendations for ultrasound imagers who are interested in artery diseases or for physicians who intend to undertake vascular procedures. This is the first part of the work. It is dedicated to general principles of ultrasonography, cervicoencephalic, subclavian, aortoiliac and lower extremity arteries, abdominal aorta, and popliteal aneurysms. It also discusses miscellaneous items such as medial arterial calcinosis, arterial embolism, arteritis, arterial stents and bypasses, false aneurysms, aortic dissection, popliteal entrapment syndrome, and iliac endofibrosis...

Aims: The longitudinal myocardial blood flow (MBF) gradient derived from positron emission tomography (PET) has been proposed as an emerging non-invasive index of haemodynamically significant coronary artery disease (CAD). This study aimed to investigate the diagnostic value of longitudinal MBF gradient for the presence of haemodynamically significant CAD. Methods and results: A total of 204 patients (603 vessels) with suspected CAD underwent [15O]H2O PET followed by invasive coronary angiography with fractional flow reserve (FFR) of all major coronary arteries...

Aims: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is associated with high morbidity and mortality and the predictive capacity of traditional functional echocardiographic measures is poor. Recent studies assessed the predictive capacity of right ventricular longitudinal strain (RVLS). Diversity in methods between these studies resulted in conflicting outcomes. The purpose of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to determine the independent prognostic value of RVLS for PH-related events and all-cause mortality...

Aims: We aimed to analyse the association between right haemodynamic parameters, right ventricular (RV) dysfunction parameters, and outcomes in patients with preserved ejection fraction (EF). Methods and results: Retrospective analysis of right haemodynamic (systolic pulmonary pressure and end-diastolic pulmonary pressure based on tricuspid regurgitation (TR) velocity at pulmonary valve opening time), and RV parameters including size (end-diastolic and end-systolic area), function (RV fractional area change, Tei index, Tricuspid Annular Plane Systolic Excursion, and speckle tracking derived free wall strain), from 557 consecutive patients with preserved EF [EF ≥ 50%; age 64...

Aims: To evaluate the prognostic value of intramyocardial haemorrhage (IMH) depicted by T2* imaging for risk stratification in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients in comparison with established cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) prognosis markers. Methods and results: This multicentre study enrolled 264 patients reperfused within 12 h after symptom onset. CMR was performed within the first week after STEMI to assess left ventricular function and infarct characteristics including IMH...

Aims: The main aim of this study was to characterize changes in the left ventricular (LV) blood flow kinetic energy (KE) using four-dimensional (4D) flow cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) in patients with myocardial infarction (MI) with/without LV thrombus (LVT). Methods and results: This is a prospective cohort study of 108 subjects [controls = 40, MI patients without LVT (LVT- = 36), and MI patients with LVT (LVT+ = 32)]. All underwent CMR including whole-heart 4D flow...

Aims: To compare the diagnostic performance of a reduced-order computed tomography-derived fractional flow reserve (CT-FFR) technique derived from luminal deformation and static CT stress myocardial perfusion (CTP). Methods and results: Forty-six patients (84 vessels) with suspected coronary artery disease from a single institution planned for elective coronary angiography prospectively underwent research indicated invasive fractional flow reserve (FFR) and 320-detector CT coronary angiography (CTA) and static CTP...

Aims: To compare the diagnostic accuracy of stress computed tomography myocardial perfusion (CTP) for the detection of significant coronary artery disease with visual approach vs. quantitative analysis with transmural perfusion ratio (TPR) in consecutive symptomatic patients scheduled for invasive coronary angiography (ICA) plus invasive fractional flow reserve (FFR). Methods and results: Eighty-eight consecutive symptomatic patients underwent rest coronary computed tomography angiography (cCTA) followed by static stress-CTP...

Aims: We evaluated diagnostic accuracy of CT-fractional flow reserve (CT-FFR) computed on-site with a new vendor workstation, against invasive FFR as the reference standard. Methods and results: Retrospective analyses compared CT-FFR of 104 vessels with 30-90% diameter stenosis in 75 patients imaged using single-rotation 320 detector-row coronary CT angiography (CCTA) with invasive FFR performed within 90 days. Prospective ECG-gated CCTA included exposure of 70-99% of the R-R interval...

Aims: Percutaneous edge-to-edge repair alters mitral valve (MV) geometry in functional mitral regurgitation (FMR). We sought to characterize MV morphology in patients with central and eccentric FMR, compare the geometrical effect of MitraClip therapy, and elucidate different mechanisms of MR improvement according to FMR subtypes. Methods and results: Seventy-six symptomatic patients with Grade 3 to 4+ FMR (central, n = 39; eccentric, n = 37) underwent three-dimensional transoesophageal echocardiography during MitraClip implantation...

Aims: Although mortality rate is very high, diagnosis of acute myocarditis remains challenging with conventional tests. We aimed to elucidate the potential role of longitudinal 2-Deoxy-2-18F-fluoro-D-glucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) inflammation monitoring in a rat model of experimental autoimmune myocarditis. Methods and results: Autoimmune myocarditis was induced in Lewis rats by immunizing with porcine cardiac myosin emulsified in complete Freund's adjuvant...

Aims: Little is known about regional longitudinal strain (LS) distribution in early stages of Anderson-Fabry disease (AFD) cardiomyopathy. We investigated regional left ventricular (LV) patterns of LS strain and base-to-apex behaviour of LS in treatment-naïve AFD patients. Methods and results: Twenty-three consecutive AFD patients at diagnosis and 23 healthy controls without cardiovascular risk factors and matched for age and sex to the patients, underwent a comprehensive evaluation of target organs...

European Heart Journal - Cardiovascular Imaging was launched in 2012 as a multimodality cardiovascular imaging journal. It has gained an impressive impact factor of 8.366 during its first 5 years and is now established as one of the top 10 cardiovascular journals and has become the most important cardiovascular imaging journal in Europe. The most important studies from 2017 will be highlighted in two reports. Part I of the review will focus on studies about myocardial function and risk prediction, myocardial ischaemia, and emerging techniques in cardiovascular imaging, while Part II will focus on valvular heart disease, heart failure, cardiomyopathies, and congenital heart disease...

Advances in the diagnosis and management of congenital heart disease have led to a marked improvement in the survival of adult with congenital heart disease (ACHD) patients. However, ACHD patients are a heterogeneous population, with a large spectrum of anatomic substrates even within specific lesions. In addition, the nature of previous surgery and other intervention is highly variable rendering each patient unique and residual anatomic and haemodynamic abnormalities are very common. As the ACHD population continues to age, acquired heart disease will also require cardiac imaging assessment...
