A 72-year-old man was referred to our catheterization laboratory 48 hours after a non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. His medical history included coronary artery disease (CAD) (percutaneous coronary intervention of the right coronary artery and chronic total occlusion of the circumflex artery), atrial fibrillation (AF), and chronic kidney disease. An electrocardiogram showed a pre-existent left bundle-branch block and the patient's maximum cardiac troponin concentration was 8.64 µg/L (upper limit of normal: 0...

Atrial septal defects (ASDs) are one of the most of the most common acyanotic congenital heart lesions. Awareness of potential clinical presentations and complications during pregnancy is essential for those managing these patients. We report successful percutaneous closure of an extremely large secundum ASD, using the largest available percutaneous ASD closure device in a 27-year-old pregnant female. Large ASDs may have their initial clinical presentation and diagnosis during pregnancy. If indicated, percutaneous closure can be performed safely...

Right-sided cardiac masses are commonly encountered. We present a challenging case of a right atrial thrombus in a patient who had a high surgical risk for open removal. AngioVac aspiration device, under transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) and fluoroscopy guidance, was successfully used to remove the thrombus. The patient tolerated the procedure well and was discharged home. Our case confirms the safety and efficacy of this procedure for treatment of unwanted intracardiac and intravascular masses in patients who are not candidates for conventional therapies of surgery or thrombolytics...

Healthcare in China is expanding faster than anywhere else on the planet and the impact of multiple, mega-medical centers on their communities, their culture and their general way of life is substantial. Through the lens of a 5.5 million square foot hospital located in the Hunan Province of China, this article addresses the factors design teams must consider when integrating nature in to hospital design. The Fifth Xiangya Hospital, designed by Boston-based architecture firm Payette, features a major public park, which is fully integrated in to the hospital design...

REVIEW
Zoran B Popović, James D Thomas
Some form of the assessment of observer variability may be the most frequent statistical task in medical literature. Still, very little attempt is made to make the reported methods uniform and clear to the reader. This paper provides overview of various measures of observer variability, and a rationale of why using standard error of measurement (SEM) is preferable to other measures of observer variability. The supplemental file contains examples on how to design a proper repeatability and reproducibility assessment, determine appropriate sample size, and test for significance of its findings...

REVIEW
Grigorios Avdikos, Aris Karatasakis, Andreas Tsoumeleas, Efstathios Lazaris, Antonios Ziakas, Michael Koutouzis
The transradial approach (TRA) for coronary angiography and interventions is increasingly utilized around the world. Radial artery occlusion (RAO) is the most common significant complication after transradial catheterization, with incidence varying between 1% and 10%. Although RAO is rarely accompanied by hand ischemia, it is an important complication because it prohibits future transradial access and radial artery utilization as a conduit for coronary artery bypass grafting or arteriovenous fistula formation...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of elevated heart rate (HR) on the diagnostic accuracy and image quality of second-generation 320-detector computed tomography coronary angiography (320-CTCA). METHODS: Consecutive patients with suspected coronary disease referred for invasive coronary angiography (ICA) were prospectively recruited and underwent 320-CTCA. Pre-scan beta-blockers were administered if native HR>80 bpm and post-scan cohorts stratified by traditional (HR ≤60 bpm) and elevated HR (61-80 bpm)...

BACKGROUND: The Windkessel model of the cardiovascular system, both in its original wind-chamber and flow-pipe form, and in its electrical circuit analog has been used for over a century to modeled left ventricular ejection conditions. Using parameters obtained from aortic flow we formed a Flow Index that is proportional to the impedance of such a "circuit". We show that the impedance varies with ejection fraction (EF) in a manner characteristic of a resonant circuit with multiple resonance points, with each resonance point centrally located in a small range of EF values, i...

BACKGROUND: Because of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) activation, the patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) manifest increased ventricular stress, with impaired left ventricular function, and a slowing down in systemic venous drainage. More importantly, a reduction of the patient's life expectancy has been proven in the case of RAAS overstimulation. For these reasons, huge efforts have been made to obtain molecules able to efficaciously antagonize the RAAS overstimulation, such as aldosterone receptor antagonists (ARAs)...

BACKGROUND: A number of small studies have suggested that outcomes following endovascular (ENDO) therapy are comparable to those following surgical (SURG) revascularization for patients presenting with acute limb ischemia (ALI). We sought to compare mortality, limb amputation and recurrent ischemia across both revascularization strategies. METHODS: A comprehensive database search of MEDLINE, EMBASE and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) electronic databases from January 1990 through January 2016 was performed to identify studies of ENDO versus SURG for ALI...

BACKGROUND: CER-001 is an engineered pre-beta high-density lipoprotein (HDL) mimetic, which rapidly mobilizes cholesterol. Infusion of CER-001 3 mg/kg exhibited a potentially favorable effect on plaque burden in the CHI-SQUARE (Can HDL Infusions Significantly Quicken Atherosclerosis Regression) study. Since baseline atheroma burden has been shown as a determinant for the efficacy of HDL infusions, the degree of baseline atheroma burden might influence the effect of CER-001. METHODS: CHI-SQUARE compared the effect of 6 weekly infusions of CER-001 (3, 6 and 12 mg/kg) vs...

BACKGROUND: The Cornell and Sokolow-Lyon electrocardiography (ECG) criteria have been widely used for diagnosing left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) in patients with hypertension. However, the correlations of these ECG criteria with LVH were rarely compared in military members who received rigorous training, particularly of the Asian male population. METHODS: We compared the Cornell voltage and product criteria with the Sokolow-Lyon criteria for the echocardiographic LVH in 539 military male members, ages 18-50 years and free of hypertension in the Cardiorespiratory fitness and HospItalization Events in armed Forces (CHIEF) study in Taiwan...

BACKGROUND: Screening echocardiograms are not indicated. Our aim is to evaluate the impact of screening echocardiograms on improving clinical management among older adults. METHODS: We performed screening echocardiograms for all consecutive patients and defined incident systolic heart failure (HF) as an ejection fraction of less than 50% among patients without a previous HF diagnosis. We reviewed medical record data to determine if the new cases where Stage B or C...
