Aims: We hypothesized that the absence of a decrease in minimal left ventricular (LV) pressure during exercise would be associated with impaired LV apical back rotation during exercise. Methods and results: A total of 21 patients (59 ± 10 years) underwent invasive LV pressure measurements and simultaneous echocardiography at rest and during submaximal supine bicycle exercise. Patients were classified according to the changes in minimal LV pressure from rest to maximal exercise (Δminimal LVP); Group 1 (n = 8) had a decrease in minimal LV pressure with exercise, whereas Group 2 (n = 13) had an increase in minimal LV pressure...

Aims: To determine changes of global longitudinal strain (GLS) and their predictors in relation to classical echocardiographic parameters of left ventricular (LV) function, over 1 year, in consecutive patients with myocardial infarction (MI) and initially normal or impaired LV ejection fraction (EF). Methods and results: A total of 285 patients with MI prospectively included in the REBUS (RElevance of Biomarkers for future risk of thromb-oembolic events in UnSelected post-myocardial infarction patients) study underwent echocardiography within 72 h from admission and after 1 year...

Aims: The aim of this study was to determine the value of T2 mapping for the non-invasive assessment of myocardial inflammation in different stages of systolic left ventricular dysfunction in dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in comparison with endomyocardial biopsy (EMB). Methods and results: A total of 132 subjects were enrolled between 2013 and 2016 (62 controls and 70 patients with DCM). All patients underwent CMR at 1.5 T and received coronary angiogram and EMB...

Aims: The usefulness of [18F] fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography/computed tomography ([18F]FDG-PET/CT) for diagnosing giant cell arteritis (GCA) has been previously reported. Yet, the interpretation of PET scans is not clear-cut. The present study aimed at determining the best method to analyse PET/CT in a large, real-life cohort of patients presenting with suspicion of GCA. Methods and results: One hundred and three patients with clinical suspicion of GCA undergoing PET/CT between 2006 and 2012 were included...

Aims: Intensive endurance sport practice is associated with an increased risk of atrial fibrillation (AF) in male veteran athletes. Paroxysmal AF (PAF) is the very beginning step of this disease. The description of atrial remodelling occurring at this early stage might enable to depict predictive factors of AF in veteran athletes in order to give them personalized recommendation according to their sport practice. Methods and results: Twenty-seven male endurance veteran athletes with documented PAF were retrospectively enrolled and compared with 30 control endurance athletes without documented AF, with similar training level, age, and cardiovascular risk factors...

Aims: We evaluated the influence of the jailing configuration and guidewire rewiring position in front of the side-branch (SB) ostium before kissing balloon inflation (KBI) against side-branch ostial area (SBOA) at follow-up using 3D optical coherence tomography (3D-OCT). Methods and results: We retrospectively analysed the cases of the 37 consecutive patients who underwent main-vessel (MV) stenting with KBI for coronary bifurcation lesion under OCT guidance and the follow-up OCT 6-12 months...

Aims: General obesity, defined by increased body mass index (BMI), is associated with left atrial (LA) enlargement, a marker of cardiovascular risk in the general population. The association between abdominal adiposity, defined by increased waist circumference (WC) or waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), and LA phasic volumes and reservoir function is not well known. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between different body size metrics and LA phasic volumes and reservoir function in the elderly...

Introduction: Prediction of cardiovascular events improves using imaging, i.e. coronary calcium score and ultrasound assessment of carotid plaque. This study analysed the predictive value of two ultrasound measures of carotid plaque size: carotid plaque thickness and carotid and intima-media thickness (IMT). Methods and results: A total of 6102 asymptomatic persons underwent assessment of conventional risk factors and imaging by carotid ultrasound. Carotid plaque burden (cPB) and maximum carotid plaque thickness (cPTmax) were measured from 'cross-sectional sweep' video acquisition of the carotid artery...

Aims: To prospectively determine evaluability of routine cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) diagnostic modules in a referral population of implanted rhythm device all-comers, and to establish a device-dependent CMR imaging strategy to achieve optimal image quality. Methods and results: One hundred and twenty-eight patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices [insertable cardiac monitoring system, n = 14; implantable loop-recorder, n = 21; pacemaker, n = 31; implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD), n = 50; and cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D), n = 12] underwent clinically indicated CMR at 1...

The aim of this paper is to provide a guide to the clinical application of the functional computed tomography (CT) techniques fractional flow reserve (CT FFR) and myocardial perfusion (CTP) in patients presenting for the evaluation of coronary artery disease (CAD). Both techniques have recently been introduced to complement coronary CT angiography (CTA) with physiological information. Evidence supporting their diagnostic accuracy accumulates at a fast pace, and both techniques are moving from research tools to clinical applications for specific subgroups of patients...
