PURPOSE: The purpose of this document is to provide updated guidance for the genetic evaluation of cardiomyopathy and for an approach to manage secondary findings from cardiomyopathy genes. The genetic bases of the primary cardiomyopathies (dilated, hypertrophic, arrhythmogenic right ventricular, and restrictive) have been established, and each is medically actionable; in most cases established treatments or interventions are available to improve survival, reduce morbidity, and enhance quality of life...

BACKGROUND: Previously proposed algorithms to predict the ventricular tachycardia (VT) exit site have been based on diverse left ventricle (LV) models, but none of them identify the precise region of origin on electroanatomical mapping (EAM). Moreover, no ECG algorithm has been tested to predict the region of origin of scar-related VTs in non-ischemic patients. OBJECTIVE: To validate a simple electrocardiographic algorithm to identify the segment of origin (SgO) VT relative to the 17-segment American Heart Association (AHA) model in patients with structural heart disease (SHD)...

BACKGROUND: The potential impact of the 2016 United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) guidelines on statins for primary prevention of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) warrants further analysis. METHODS AND RESULTS: We studied participants from MESA (Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis) aged 40 to 75 years and not on statins. We compared statin eligibility at baseline (2000-2002) and over follow-up between USPSTF and the 2013 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) guidelines...

BACKGROUND: Non-adherence to medications is common and leads to suboptimal outcomes. Non-adherence can be intentional (e.g., deciding to skip dosages) or unintentional (e.g., forgetting), yet few studies have distinguished these reasons. An improved understanding of the reasons for non-adherence could inform the development of effective interventions. METHODS AND RESULTS: We analyzed data from African Americans in the Jackson Heart Study who were prescribed medications for one or more chronic conditions...

BACKGROUND: The 2013 American College of Cardiology (ACC)/American Heart Association (AHA) cholesterol guideline recommends statin treatment based on patients' predicted atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) risk. Whether clinician-reported guideline adoption translates to implementation into practice is unknown. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to compare clinician lipid management in hypothetical scenarios versus observed practice. METHODS: The PALM Registry asked 774 clinicians how they would treat 4 hypothetical scenarios of primary prevention patients with: (1) diabetes; (2) high 10-year ASCVD risk (≥7...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Ideal cardiovascular health (CVH) was defined as meeting ideal levels of 4 health behaviours (smoking, body mass index, physical activity, and diet) and 3 biological factors (blood pressure, total cholesterol, and glucose) and is inversely related to cardiovascular disease and mortality. However, the prevalence of ideal CVH in patients with severe mental illness and the possible independent associations of sedentary behaviour and fitness with CVH score are unexplored...

Importance: African American individuals face higher atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk than white individuals; reasons for these differences, including potential differences in patient beliefs regarding preventive care, remain unknown. Objective: To evaluate differences in statin use between white and African American patients and identify the potential causes for any observed differences. Design, Setting, and Participants: Using the 2015 Patient and Provider Assessment of Lipid Management (PALM) Registry data, we compared statin use and dosing between African American and white outpatient adults who were potentially eligible for primary or secondary prevention statins...

BACKGROUND: Self-rated health (SRH) is an indicator of health status. It is a determinant of health-promoting behaviors and predictor of morbidity and mortality. Yet, little is known about the association between SRH and ideal cardiovascular health (CVH) as measured by the American Heart Association Life's Simple Seven (LS7) metrics, or whether the relation of SRH and CVH differ by race/ethnicity. HYPOTHESIS: Favorable SRH is associated with better CVH. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional analysis of 6457 men and women of 4 race/ethnicities who participated in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis...

A 77 year old male underwent elective bioprosthetic aortic valve replacement (23mm Carpentier-Edwards Perimount MagnaEase) for severe aortic stenosis. His pre-discharge transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) was normal. He presented 9 days after surgery with dyspnoea and fever. He was in sinus rhythm. Blood cultures were taken and he was commenced on empirical antibiotics for possible infective endocarditis (subsequently all negative). Repeat TTE showed a well-seated prosthesis without regurgitation but elevated gradients (peak / mean gradients 49 / 22 mmHg respectively)...

BACKGROUND: Insufficient sleep increases blood pressure. However, the effects of milder, highly prevalent but frequently neglected sleep disturbances, including poor sleep quality and insomnia, on vascular health in women are unclear. We investigated whether poor sleep patterns are associated with blood pressure and endothelial inflammation in a diverse sample of women. METHODS AND RESULTS: Women who participated in the ongoing American Heart Association Go Red for Women Strategically Focused Research Network were studied (n=323, 57% minority, mean age=39±17 years, range=20-79 years)...

PURPOSE: To determine whether the rate of venous thromboembolism (VTE) following radical cystectomy (RC) is changing overtime. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database was used to identify patients who underwent RC for bladder cancer from 2011 to 2016. VTE was defined as pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis within 30 days of RC. VTE rate by year was assessed using the Cochran-Armitage test for trend...

OBJECTIVE: To define the rates of common Hospital Acquired Conditions (HACs) in patients undergoing major urological surgery over a period of time encompassing the implementation of the Hospital Acquired Condition Reduction program, and to evaluate whether implementation of the HAC reimbursement penalties in 2008 was associated with a change in the rate of HACs. METHODS: Using American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) data, we determined rates of HACs in patients undergoing major inpatient urological surgery from 2005 to 2012...

AIM OF THE STUDY: Identifying modifiable factors associated with survival following in-hospital cardiac arrest is crucial. The purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which adherence to the 2010 American Heart Association (AHA) Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) guidelines in their entirety affects patient outcomes. In addition, we explored the role of code leader training level on patient outcomes. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of records for cardiac arrests that occurred on hospital wards and were run by the hospital code team, at three tertiary care centres over 2 to 4 years...

REVIEW

This roundtable discussion on dietary fats was inspired by a recent Presidential Advisory from the American Heart Association giving recommendations about dietary fats for prevention of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. The Advisory clarifies a long-held position that saturated fat should be reduced in the American diet. New studies and meta-analyses have questioned the adverse role of saturated fat. The Advisory adds a crucial clarification based primarily on 4 randomized controlled diet trials, each conducted over 4 to 8 years during the 1960s extending to the 1970s...
