Aims: Main pulmonary artery (MPA) stiffness and abnormal flow haemodynamics in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) are strongly associated with elevated right ventricular (RV) afterload and associated with disease severity and poor clinical outcomes in adults with PAH. However, the long-term effects of MPA stiffness on RV function in children with PAH remain poorly understood. This study is the first comprehensive evaluation of MPA stiffness in children with PAH, delineating the mechanistic relationship between flow haemodynamics and MPA stiffness as well as the prognostic ability of these measures regarding clinical outcomes...

The echocardiographic-fluoroscopic fusion imaging is a new imaging system which has recently become available, with the proposal to facilitate catheters and device navigation during catheter-based structural heart disease interventions. Several reports have described the early developments and the first clinical experiences, but literature focusing on the practical applications of fusion imaging technology to mitral valve transcatheter interventions, and on its potential advantages and current limitations, is still limited...

Aims: The need for right ventricular assist device (RVAD) support after left ventricular assist device (LVAD) therapy is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. We used 2D echocardiographic strain analysis to assess right atrial (RA) and right ventricular (RV) mechanics and predict the need for RV mechanical support after LVAD implantation. Methods and results: Seventy advanced chronic heart failure (ACHF) patients [59 male, age 47 ± 12 years, 79% dilated cardiomyopathy, left ventricular ejection fraction 23 ± 10%] received continuous-flow LVAD as a bridge to transplantation over an 18 month period...

Aims: Left atrial (LA) remodelling is a key determinant of atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation outcome. Optimal methods to assess this process are scarce. LA sphericity is a shape-based parameter shown to be independently associated to procedural success. In a multicentre study, we aimed to test the feasibility of assessing LA sphericity and evaluate its capability to predict procedural outcomes. Methods and results: This study included consecutive patients undergoing first AF ablation during 2013...

Aims: We aimed to assess the relation between number of pregnancies and cardiac structure, function, and arrhythmic events in women with arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (AC). Methods and results: We included female AC patients in a cross-sectional study. Number of pregnancies and pregnancy related symptoms were recorded. Ventricular arrhythmias were defined as aborted cardiac arrest, sustained ventricular tachycardia, or appropriate implantable cardioverter-defibrillator therapy...

Aims: The p.Arg14del founder mutation in the gene encoding phospholamban (PLN) is associated with an increased risk of malignant ventricular arrhythmia (VA) and heart failure. It has been shown to lead to calcium overload, cardiomyocyte damage, and eventually to myocardial fibrosis. This study sought to investigate ventricular function, the extent and localization of myocardial fibrosis and the associations with ECG features and VA in PLN p.Arg14del mutation carriers. Methods and results: Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) data of 150 mutation carriers were analysed retrospectively...

Aims: To determine how native myocardial T1 and extracellular volume (ECV) change with age, both to understand aging and to inform on normal reference ranges. Methods and results: Ninety-four healthy volunteers with no a history or symptoms of cardiovascular disease or diabetes underwent cardiovascular magnetic resonance at 1.5 T. Mid-ventricular short axis native and post-contrast T1 maps by Shortened MOdified Look-Locker Inversion-recovery (ShMOLLI), MOdified Look-Locker Inversion Recovery (MOLLI) [pre-contrast: 5s(3s)3s, post-contrast: 4s(1s)3s(1s)2s] and saturation recovery single-shot acquisition (SASHA) were acquired and ECV by these three techniques were derived for the mid anteroseptum...

Aim: To clarify the potential role of coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA) in assessing the remodelling impact of statin therapy on plaque burden and compositions. Methods and results: A systematic literature review and meta-analysis were conducted to examine the effect of statin therapy on different plaque volumes assessed by serial CCTA. Twelve studies were included with a mean (±standard deviation) follow-up period of 14.5 ± 9.5 months. Data on plaque volume were pooled using weighted mean difference method...
