OBJECTIVE: To determine the values of microvolt T-wave alternans (MTWA) in children and adolescents with Eisenmenger syndrome (ES) and controls. METHODS: Thirteen were included in the study. After analyzing the 24-h ECG recordings, MTWA was considered using three leads (V5, V1, and aVF). Right heart catheterization and 6-minute walk test (6-MWD) were applied to the patients and pro-brain natriuretic peptide levels were assessed; echocardiographic parameters were obtained from both the groups and the results were compared...

Although late gadolinium enhancement on cardiac magnetic resonance imaging remains the reference standard for scar assessment, it does not provide quantitative information about the extent of pathophysiological changes within the scar tissue. T1 mapping and extracellular volume (ECV) mapping are steadily becoming diagnostic and prognostically useful tests for in vivo myocardial histology, influencing clinical decision-making. Quantitative native T1 maps (acquired without a contrast agent) represent the longitudinal relaxation time within the myocardium and changes with myocardial extracellular water (edema, focal, or diffuse fibrosis), fat, iron, and amyloid protein content...

OBJECTIVE: To share our experience with the left distal radial approach for transradial coronary angiography and interventions. By performing the radial puncture in the fossa radialis or the so called anatomical "Snuffbox" we aimed to present the feasibility and complications of this new technique. METHODS: Left distal radial artery was used as an access site in 54 patients admitted to our clinic for coronary angiography and intervention between May 25th and October 20th 2017...

OBJECTIVE: Reversal of myocardial activation sequence during cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) may increase the transmural dispersion of repolarization (TDR), which may lead to ventricular arrhythmias. Quadripolar left ventricular (LV) leads offer 10 different pacing configurations. However, little is known about the role of pacing polarity on repolarization patterns. Our study aimed to investigate the impact of LV pacing polarity on depolarization and repolarization parameters in the same substrate in the same patient group...

OBJECTIVE: To report clinical and procedural characteristics of twelve patients who received a covered stent for the treatment of aortic coarctation and concurrent patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). METHODS: A single center database was retrospectively evaluated to obtain data of patients with combined aortic coarctation and PDA. We selected patients in whom a covered stent was used for the treatment of both pathologies. The stent length was chosen so as to cover the entire length of the lesion from healthy to healthy tissue and also cover the ampulla of PDA...

Myocarditis is an inflammatory disease of the myocardium with a broad spectrum of clinical presentations, ranging from mild symptoms to severe heart failure. The course of patients with myocarditis is heterogeneous, varying from partial or full clinical recovery in few days to advanced low cardiac output syndrome requiring mechanical circulatory support or heart transplantation. Fulminant myocarditis (FM) is a peculiar clinical condition and is an acute form of myocarditis, whose main characteristic is a rapidly progressive clinical course with the need for hemodynamic support...

Sudden cardiac death (SCD), mainly caused by ventricular arrhythmias, is one of the leading causes of mortality in adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) patients. An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) may prevent SCD, but risk stratification remains challenging. In this review, we will address the current guideline recommendations for ICD implantation in ACHD patients, as well as review a recent study in which the discriminative ability for SCD of these guidelines is evaluated. In this study, the guideline recommendations were applied to patients who died of SCD and living controls...

Effective reperfusion of ischemic myocardium is the final aim of both pharmacological and mechanical reperfusive strategies in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. More effective reperfusion is related to better prognosis. In contrast, ineffective reperfusion (no reflow) has been showed to be related to an increased rate of adverse events in the flow-up. Several techniques can be used to assess the effectiveness of reperfusion, and the evolved over the last decades according to the treatment methods but also to technological advancements...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects and mechanisms of catalpol on cardiac function in rats with isoproterenol (ISO)-induced myocardial infarction (MI). METHODS: Adult male Wistar rats were divided into four groups: control group, ISO group, catalpol (L, low dose) group, and catalpol (H, high dose) group. Isoproterenol (85 mg/kg) was injected subcutaneously for 2 consecutive days to induce experimental MI. At the end of experiment, the effects of catalpol on cardiac function; apelin levels; apoptosis index; apelin, APJ, Bcl-2, and Bax protein expression; and caspase-3/9 activities were investigated...
