Endale Tefera, Joseph Knapp, Michael Teodori
While cardiac involvement is not a common presentation in human echinococcosis, it may lead to life-threatening complications including cyst rupture; anaphylactic shock; tamponade; pulmonary, cerebral or peripheral arterial embolism; acute coronary syndrome; dysrhythmias; infection; ventricular or valvular dysfunction, as well as sudden death. Here we report a 9-year old girl who was diagnosed to have hydatid cyst of the interventricular septum four years after diagnosis and medical treatment of pulmonary hydatidosis...

Campylobacter jejuni-associated myopericarditis (CAM) has been reported infrequently in the literature. We describe a case of immunocompetent young woman presenting with chest pain, with history of recent travel and diarrhea. Evaluation led to diagnosis of myopericarditis associated with this infection. The patient improved with conservative management. The pathogenesis of CAM remains unknown. Patients present with chest pain, heart failure, pulmonary edema and arrhythmias. Diagnostic evaluation includes EKG, cardiac enzymes, echocardiogram, cardiac MRI and stool culture...

The mechanisms responsible for sustaining atrial fibrillation are a key debate in cardiovascular pathophysiology, and directly influence the approach to therapy including ablation Clinical and basic studies have split AF mechanisms into two basic camps: 'spatially distributed disorganization' and 'localized sources'. Recent data suggest that these mechanisms can also be separated by the method for mapping - with nearly all traditional electrogram analyses showing spatially distributed disorganization and nearly all optical mapping studies showing localized sources We will review this dichotomy in light of these recently identified differences in mapping, and in the context of recent clinical studies in which localized ablation has been shown to impact AF, also lending support to the localized source hypothesis...

#4
REVIEW
Mohamed Hassan
Angiopoietin-like proteins (ANGPTLs) have emerged as an important regulator of lipid and glucose metabolism as well as insulin sensitivity. ANGPTL3 plays a key role in regulating circulating triglycerides (TG) and cholesterol levels through reversible inhibition of lipoprotein lipase (LPL) and endothelial lipase enzymes activity. Loss of function mutation of ANGPTL3 gene has been identified in many subjects with familial combined hypolipidemia. ANGPTL4 produces irreversible inhibition of LPL activity, while ANGPTL8 enhances the activity of ANGPTL3, which highlight the interplay between the different ANGPTLs in a coordinated manner to regulate lipid metabolism during different nutritional states...

REVIEW

Wave intensity analysis (WIA) is a technique developed from the field of gas dynamics that is now being applied to assess cardiovascular physiology. It allows quantification of the forces acting to alter flow and pressure within a fluid system, and as such it is highly insightful in ascribing cause to dynamic blood pressure or velocity changes. When co-incident waves arrive at the same spatial location they exert either counteracting or summative effects on flow and pressure. WIA however allows waves of different origins to be measured uninfluenced by other simultaneously arriving waves...

Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) is the most serious manifestations of rheumatic fever, which is caused by group A Streptococcus (GAS or Streptococcus pyogenes) infection. RHD is an auto immune sequelae of GAS pharyngitis, rather than the direct bacterial infection of the heart, which leads to chronic heart valve damage. Although antibiotics like penicillin are effective against GAS infection, improper medical care such as poor patient compliance, overcrowding, poverty, and repeated exposure to GAS, leads to acute rheumatic fever and RHD...

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD) is an inheritable heart muscle disease that predominantly affects the right ventricle (RV) and predisposes to ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death (SCD)(1). The natural history is predominantly related to ventricular electric instability which may lead to arrhythmic SCD, mostly in young people and athletes(2,3), but may progress with significant RV muscle disease and left-ventricular (LV) involvement and can result in right or biventricular heart failure(4)...

Raj Amin, Timothy Fritz, Richard McNamara
Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is generally considered to have a favorable prognosis. However, several major problems may complicate the clinical course. We present a patient with four simultaneous complications of shock, left ventricular thrombus, left ventricular outflow obstruction, and severe mitral regurgitation. Despite this dramatic presentation, the patient had a complete recovery with resolution of all four complications within weeks.

REVIEW
Ahmad Samir, Ahmed ElGuindy
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has emerged as a powerful intravascular imaging modality in recent years. The introduction of frequency-domain OCT has simplified the procedure and enabled its safe utilisation in different clinical settings including acute coronary syndromes, where it can determine the mechanism of plaque disruption, thrombus burden, and guide percutaneous coronary intervention. In patients presenting with stent failure (stent thrombosis and instent restenosis), OCT can also be very useful in determining the underlying mechanism and guiding therapy thereafter...

Mohamed Hassan, Peter Philip
Initial observational studies have identified high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) as an independent predictor of cardiovascular (CV) risk, even in patients on optimal statin therapy. However, the notion that higher HDL-C is better, has been seriously challenged by the results from several recent clinical and genetic trials. Data from the CANHEART study serve to clarify the relation between HDL-C and cause-specific mortality. Individuals with lower HDL-C levels were independently associated with higher risk of CV, cancer, and non-CV/non-cancer mortality compared with individuals in the reference ranges of HDL-C levels...

REVIEW

Survival rates following myocardial infarction have increased in recent years but current treatments for post-infarction recovery are inadequate and cannot induce regeneration of damaged hearts. Regenerative medicine could provide disease-reversing treatments by harnessing modern concepts in cell and developmental biology. A recently-established paradigm in regenerative medicine is that regeneration of a tissue can be achieved by reactivation of the coordinated developmental processes that originally formed the tissue...

Knitting is a versatile technology which offers a large portfolio of products and solutions of interest in heart valve (HV) tissue engineering (TE). One of the main advantages of knitting is its ability to construct complex shapes and structures by precisely assembling the yarns in the desired position. With this in mind, knitting could be employed to construct a HV scaffold that closely resembles the authentic valve. This has the potential to reproduce the anisotropic structure that is characteristic of the heart valve with the yarns, in particular the 3-layered architecture of the leaflets...

Myocardial bridging is commonly observed in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, usually confined to the left anterior descending (LAD), and correlates to the hypertrophic septum. We present a patient with unique spiral hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and compression of all three coronary arteries corresponding to this hypertrophy pattern.

Transposition of the great arteries (TGA) is caused by discordance between the great arteries and the ventricles. If left untreated, this anomaly has a disastrous perspective. More recent surgical approach for correction includes the Lecompte technique in which the pulmonary bifurcation is transposed anterior to the aorta, which may be less physiologic. Although the early results are excellent, there is potential for future problems involving the great arteries and semilunar valves(1). These potential problems necessitate the development of other improved surgical techniques(2)...

REVIEW
Bradley A Maron, Jane A Leopold
Reductionist theory proposes that analyzing complex systems according to their most fundamental components is required for problem resolution, and has served as the cornerstone of scientific methodology for more than four centuries. However, technological gains in the current scientific era now allow for the generation of large datasets that profile the proteomic, genomic, and metabolomic signatures of biological systems across a range of conditions. The accessibility of data on such a vast scale has, in turn, highlighted the limitations of reductionism, which is not conducive to analyses that consider multiple and contemporaneous interactions between intermediates within a pathway or across constructs...
