Aim: Significant tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is common in heart failure (HF) and portends poor prognosis. We sought to determine whether the poor outcome results from the TR itself, or whether the TR is a surrogate marker of advanced left-sided myocardial or valvular heart disease. Methods and results: We studied 639 patients admitted for acute HF. The relationship between TR severity and the endpoint of readmission for HF or mortality was assessed after adjustment for multiple clinical and echocardiographic parameters...

Aims: Measurements with superior reproducibility are useful clinically and research purposes. Previous reproducibility studies of Doppler assessment of aortic stenosis (AS) have compared only a pair of observers and have not explored the mechanism by which disagreement between operators occurs. Using custom-designed software which stored operators' traces, we investigated the reproducibility of peak and velocity time integral (VTI) measurements across a much larger group of operators and explored the mechanisms by which disagreement arose...

Aims: Unicuspid aortic valve (UAV) is a rare congenital malformation associated with severe aortic stenosis or regurgitation. This study aimed to systematically determine echocardiographic criteria to identify UAV. Methods and results: All patients underwent a preoperative baseline examination, including echocardiography. A total of 69 patients with intraoperatively confirmed UAV underwent an aortic valve repair procedure between August 2001 and May 2011. To compare the findings of UAV cases with those of other valve morphologies, we examined 99 consecutive patients with a bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) and 103 consecutive patients with a tricuspid aortic valve (TAV) undergoing isolated aortic valve surgery before May 2016...

Aims: Cardiac death is the leading cause of mortality in patients with sarcoidosis, yet cardiac involvement often remains undetected. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) and 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-positron emission tomography (PET) have been used to diagnose cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) yet never simultaneously in a cohort. This study sought to assess the diagnostic and prognostic utility of simultaneous hybrid cardiac PET/MR. Methods and results: Fifty-one consecutive patients with suspected CS (age 50 ± 13 years, 31 males) underwent simultaneous PET/MR following a high-fat/low-carbohydrate diet and 12-h fast...

Aims: We assessed the geometry of transcatheter heart valve (THV) and valve function associated with SAPIEN 3 implantation in patients with bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) stenosis. Methods and results: We included 280 consecutive patients who had a contrast computed tomography (CT) before and after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) in our institution. Each THV was assessed by CT at five cross-sectional levels: inflow, annulus, mid, sinus, and outflow. The geometry of THV was assessed for eccentricity (1 - minimum diameter/maximum diameter) and expansion (CT derived external valve area/nominal external valve area)...

Aims: The aim of this study was to determine the long-term prognostic value of infarct size and myocardial ischaemia on single-photon emission computed tomography myocardial perfusion imaging (SPECT MPI) after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Methods and results: In total, 1092 STEMI patients who underwent primary PCI and SPECT MPI within 1-6 months were included (median follow-up time of 6...

Aims: Morphological characteristics of paravalvular leakage (PVL) have not yet been well characterized by computed tomography (CT). The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the morphological characteristics of PVLs using cardiac CT in patients diagnosed with PVL. Methods and results: Between May 2011 and December 2013, 46 patients who had been diagnosed with PVL and underwent cardiac CT were included in this study. On CT, the characteristics of PVLs including number, size, location, and shape are described...

Aims: An impaired contractile reserve (CR) may be an early manifestation of left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction in hypertensive patients. Using normotensive patients as controls, we examined LV CR and its correlates in hypertensive patients. Methods and results: One hundred and twenty-nine (68 men, aged 58.6 ± 9.5 years, 73 had hypertension) patients underwent dobutamine echocardiography. Patients with significant coronary or valvular disease, previous myocardial infarction or revascularization, and diabetes were excluded...

Aims: Whether biodegradable-polymer drug-eluting stents (BP-DES) induce a vascular response at follow-up more favourable than that of new-generation durable-polymer drug-eluting stents (DP-DES) remains controversial. We sought to evaluate the vascular response to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with BP-DES vs. new-generation DP-DES as assessed by optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging at follow-up. Methods and results: We undertook a meta-analysis of aggregate data by searching electronic scientific databases for investigations of PCI-patients receiving BP-DES vs...

Aims: To evaluate the prognostic value of quantitative myocardial perfusion imaging with positron emission tomography (PET) for adverse cardiovascular outcomes in patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease (CAD). Methods and results: A search in MEDLINE and Embase was conducted for studies that evaluated (i) myocardial perfusion in absolute terms with PET, (ii) prognostic value for the development of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE), cardiac death, and/or all-cause mortality, and (iii) patients with known or suspected CAD...

In patients with suspected or established hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) is widely employed for clinical management, given its multimodality approach capable of providing unique information on cardiac morphology, function, and tissue characterization. Guidance regarding all aspects of HCM diagnosis and management is provided by the comprehensive 2014 European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines on HCM. CMR should be performed in centres with recognized expertise in heart muscle diseases, by physicians who are familiar with the whole HCM disease spectrum, differential diagnoses, and pitfalls...

Aims: The interaction between asynchronous regional myocardial activation and left ventricular (LV) wall remodelling has not been well established. We investigated the relationship between time of onset of longitudinal shortening (Tonset), regional myocardial work, and segmental LV wall thickness (SWT) in patients treated with cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). Methods and results: We analysed 26 patients with sinus rhythm, non-ischaemic cardiomyopathy (63 ± 9 years, 69% male, QRS duration 174 ± 18 ms) and positive response to CRT (15% reduction in end-systolic volume)...
