Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a useful imaging modality to guide transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). The limitations of TEE include the need for general anesthesia (GA) and endotracheal intubation. In Europe, TAVR under local anesthesia (LA) is usually performed without TEE. An intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) catheter may be used as an alternative to TEE, but the catheter is usually inserted from the femoral vein (FV-ICE). There are some reports of TAVR with FV-ICE; however, there are no reports of ICE inserted from the right internal jugular vein (JV-ICE)...

A 64-year-old woman with medication-controlled rheumatoid arthritis (RA) was admitted to our hospital complaining of chest pains. An electrocardiogram showed elevated ST-segments in the inferior leads, and inverted T-waves in the left precordial leads. Left ventriculography demonstrated apical ballooning, and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated apical ballooning of the left ventricle, and moderate pericardial effusion. The patient was diagnosed with takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC), complicated by pericarditis...

Off label use of intraosseous needles (IONs) for contrast media (CM) injection during computed tomographic angiography (CTA) has been reported in small case series and isolated case reports. Presently, complications specific to this novel indication are essentially unknown. In this communication, we report an extravasation of CM from the intramedullary space of the humerus into the glenohumeral joint space during an ION injection of CM during a CTA of the head, neck, and chest. Although clinically insignificant in this case, a more severe intraarticular extravasation could have had both short or long term adverse sequelae...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an elusive cardiovascular disease that is increasingly recognized. Classically, pregnancy had been perceived as a notable risk factor for SCAD. However, modern studies had revealed that pregnancy-associated SCAD (PASCAD) accounted for fewer cases than previously thought. The majority of PASCAD cases occur in women post-partum. We describe a case of a 30-year-old woman who presented with SCAD while 10 days pregnant, which is the earliest PASCAD case reported in the literature...

Since the early beginning of the transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) era, standardized tomographic views describing cardiac key structures have been provided. They have become the basis of TEE and have not been modified for decades. During our recent structural interventional cases, it has come to our attention that the structure frequently labeled "inferior vena cava" in textbooks and journal articles illustrating the bicaval TEE view is, in fact, the coronary sinus. Our manuscript illustrates our observation...

Background: Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) is prevalent in Sudan's rural areas including Gezira state in central Sudan. We initiated a control program aiming at measurement of the echocardiographic (echo) prevalence of RHD, training of health workers and public awareness. Methods: This is a cross-sectional and interventional study conducted in Gezira State, Al Managil Locality from Nov 2016 to February 2018. We used handheld echo (HHE) to detect the prevalence of RHD in school children and those tested positives were referred for standard echo...

Background: Developed countries continue to show a decrease in cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality. Little is known about CVD mortality trends in low and middle-income countries. The aim of our study is to describe myocardial infarction (MI) mortality trends and evaluate if differences between ethnic groups and geographic regions are present among the Ecuadorians with acute MI. Methods: We conducted a cross sectional analysis mortality national registry and included deaths related to MI between 2012 and 2016 that had complete demographic data...

Background: Over recent decades, adverse effects of ambient air pollution on the cardiovascular system have been clearly demonstrated. However, the underlying mechanisms are not fully elucidated. Air pollution may accelerates biological aging and thereby the susceptibility to cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). Telomeres are tandem repetitive DNA complexes that play a critical role in maintaining chromosome stability. There are, however, heterogeneities among the reported effects of air pollution on telomere...

Background: Metformin is an oral antidiabetic agent belonging to the biguanide class of antidiabetics. Possible novel applications for metformin in cardiovascular disease might exist. The aim of this study was to verify a possible association between pre-operative metformin administration and protection against ischemia-induced liver injury in diabetic patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery. Methods: A retrospective case-control series was conducted at a single center...

Background: Despite preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), patients with significant primary mitral regurgitation (MR) often have reduced exercise capacity. In asymptomatic patients with ≥3+ primary MR undergoing rest-stress echocardiography (RSE), we sought to evaluate the incremental impact of left ventricular global longitudinal strain (LV-GLS) on exercise capacity. Methods: A total of 660 asymptomatic patients with ≥3+ primary MR, non-dilated LV and LVEF ≥60% (mean age, 57±14 years, 66% men, body mass index or BMI 25±4 kg/m2 ) who underwent RSE at our center between 2001 and 2013 were included...

Background: Increased aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV), a direct measure of arterial stiffness (AS) is an independent predictor of cardiovascular events (CVEs) in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. This study assessed the patterns of PWV among Cameroonian patients with CKD in whom that marker of early vascular aging has not been explored so far. Methods: We enrolled 150 Black African patients (mean age: 52±15 years, 56.7% males) with CKD in a cross-sectional study conducted at Douala General Hospital, Douala, Cameroon...
