Aims: Galectin-3 (Gal-3) is an important mediator of cardiac fibrosis, particularly in heart failure. Increased Gal-3 concentration (Gal-3), associated with increased risk of developing atrial fibrillation (AF), may reflect atrial fibrotic remodelling underlying AF progression. We aimed to investigate whether the change in serum Gal-3 reflects alterations of the arrhythmogenic atrial substrate following thoracoscopic AF surgery, and predicts absence of AF. Methods and results: Consecutive patients undergoing thoracoscopic AF surgery were included...

OBJECTIVES: We evaluated the effect of monomeric C-reactive protein (CRP) deposition on areas at risk (AAR) of myocardium with ischaemia-reperfusion injury. METHODS: Myocardial ischaemia-reperfusion injury model was produced by ligation of the left anterior descending coronary artery for 45 min followed by 45 min of reperfusion using female Sprague-Dawley rats. Tissue from non-ischaemic areas, areas at risk and infarct areas determined by Evans blue and 2,3,5-triphenyltetrazolium chloride staining was obtained from the sham group, the ischaemia-reperfusion injury without C-reactive protein (CRP) injection group (I/R only group), and the ischaemia-reperfusion injury with CRP injection group (I/R + CRP group)...

PURPOSE: Identifying necrotic myocardium in ischemic regions is of great importance for risk stratification and clinical decision-making. However, rapid noninvasive imaging of necrotic myocardium is still challenging. This study sought to evaluate the potential of 1,4-naphthoquinones to rapidly visualize necrotic myocardium and the possible mechanisms of necrosis avidity. PROCEDURES: Six 1,4-naphthoquinones were radiolabeled with iodine-131 and the necrosis avidity was estimated in mouse models with muscular necrosis by gamma counting and autoradiography...

Background: Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of mortality and long-term disability worldwide. Various studies have suggested a protective effect of lactation in reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Objective: This study was designed to assess the effects of pregnancy and lactation on the vulnerability of the myocardium to an ischemic insult. Methods: Eighteen female rats were randomly divided into three groups: ischemia-reperfusion (IR), in which the hearts of virgin rats underwent IR (n = 6); lactating, in which the rats nursed their pups for 3 weeks and the maternal hearts were then submitted to IR (n = 6); and non-lactating, in which the pups were separated after birth and the maternal hearts were submitted to IR (n = 6)...

Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is the treatment of choice in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) presenting within 12 h of symptom onset. A benefit in the subacute stage is less clear. The aim of the present analysis was to compare myocardial salvage and infarct size between patients with early and late reperfusion after STEMI. We compared cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) data from a randomized controlled trial (RCT) in STEMI patients presenting within 12 h (n = 695) and a RCT of subacute STEMI patients presenting between 12 and 48 h (n = 93) after symptom onset...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about causality and pathological mechanism underlying association of postinfarct fever with myocardial injury in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. METHODS AND RESULTS: In 276 patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging was performed a median of 3.4 days after the index procedure. Forty-five patients had postinfarct fever (peak body temperature within 4 days after primary percutaneous coronary intervention ≥37...

BACKGROUND: Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) patients with early repolarization (ER) pattern are at higher risk of ventricular arrhythmia, yet the genetic background of this situation has not been well investigated. Here we report novel trigenic mutations detected in a Chinese family of obstructive HCM with ER and short QT syndrome (SQTS). METHODS: Proband and family members underwent detailed medical assessments. DNAs were extracted from peripheral blood leukocytes for genetic screening with next generation method...

CASE: A 50 year old African-American woman with diabetes, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia presented with progressively worsening retro-sternal chest pain, exacerbated by activity and relieved by rest. She also endorsed a thirty-pound unintentional weight loss, and dysphagia. She was dysarthric with left-sided Bell's Palsy and a palpable left axillary lymph node. She had been evaluated at several hospitals in the previous months for similar typical chest pain. Her troponin values were normal, and an EKG showed T-wave inversions in leads I and aVL...

Angiogenic growth factor therapy for ischemic cardiovascular disease carries a risk of stimulating atherosclerotic plaque growth. We evaluated risk benefit ratio of sustained administration of recombinant human placental growth factor (rhPlGF)-2 in mice with advanced atherosclerosis and chronic ischemic cardiomyopathy. We maintained apolipoprotein E-deficient mice on a high cholesterol diet and induced myocardial infarction by transient ligation at 4 weeks. At 8 weeks, we assessed left ventricular (LV) function and randomized mice to receive rhPlGF-2 or vehicle (VEH) subcutaneously for 28 days...

Diabetic cardiomyopathy was first defined over four decades ago. It was observed in small post-mortem studies of diabetic patients who suffered from concomitant heart failure despite the absence of hypertension, coronary disease or other likely causal factors, as well as in large population studies such as the Framingham Heart Study. Subsequent studies continue to demonstrate an increased incidence of heart failure in the setting of diabetes independent of established risk factors, suggesting direct effects of diabetes on the myocardium...

BACKGROUND: Patients with recent non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction commonly have heterogeneous characteristics that may be challenging to assess clinically. METHODS AND RESULTS: We prospectively studied the diagnostic accuracy of 2 novel (T1, T2 mapping) and 1 established (T2-weighted short tau inversion recovery [T2W-STIR]) magnetic resonance imaging methods for imaging the ischemic area at risk and myocardial salvage in 73 patients with non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (mean age 57±10 years, 78% male) at 3...

Cardiac microvascular obstruction (MVO) following ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) has been well studied, but microvascular leakage (MVL) remains largely unexplored. We characterized MVL in the mouse I/R model by histology, biochemistry and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging. I/R was induced surgically in mice. MVL was determined by administrating microvascular permeability tracer Evans blue (EB) and/or gadolinium-DTPA contrast. The size of MVL, infarction and MVO in the heart was quantified histologically...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most prevalent sustained arrhythmia found in clinical practice. AF rarely exists as a single entity but rather as part of a diverse clinical spectrum of cardiovascular diseases, related to structural and electrical remodeling within the left atrium, leading to AF onset, perpetuation, and progression. Due to the high overall prevalence within the AF population arterial hypertension plays a significant role in the pathogenesis of AF and its complications. Fibroblast proliferation, apoptosis of cardiomyocytes, gap junction remodeling, accumulation of collagen both in atrial and ventricular myocardium all accompany ageing-related structural remodeling with impact on electrical activity...

Despite recent advances in surgical technique and perioperative care, the surgical correction of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC) remains a challenge. The major complication and the main cause of reoperation in TAPVC surgery are the occurrence of pulmonary venous obstruction (PVO). In the 1990s, sutureless repair was introduced as a technique to relieve PVO after TAPVC repair. Following the favorable outcomes for postoperative PVO, the indications for sutureless repair as a primary operation have been expanded to include infants who have preoperative PVO or those at risk of developing PVO after the repair of TAPVC...

Redo aortic valve replacement (AVR) performed simultaneously with left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation carries potential for increased mortality rates. Although transcatheter AVR has been used for patients with previous LVAD placement, no literature reports concomitant valve-in-valve transcatheter AVR and LVAD implantation. Our patient had severe aortic prosthetic valve deterioration and advanced heart failure. Given the risks associated with reoperative aortic valve surgery, we chose transcatheter AVR at the time of LVAD implantation...

PIM1, a pro-survival gene encoding a serine/ threonine kinase, influences cell proliferation and survival. Modification of cardiac progenitor cells (CPCs) or cardiomyocytes with PIM1 using a lentivirus-based delivery method showed long-term improved cardiac function after myocardial infarction (MI). However, lentivirus based delivery methods have stringent FDA regulation with respect to clinical trials. To provide an alternative and low risk PIM1 delivery method, this study examined the use of a non-viral modified plasmid-minicircle (MC) as a vehicle to deliver PIM1 into mouse CPCs (mCPCs) in vitro and the myocardium in vivo...

BACKGROUND: Myocardial microvascular loss after myocardial infarction (MI) remains a therapeutic challenge. Autologous stem cell therapy was considered as an alternative; however, it has shown modest benefits due to the impairing effects of cardiovascular risk factors on stem cells. Allogenic adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) may overcome such limitations, and because of their low immunogenicity and paracrine potential may be good candidates for cell therapy. In the present study we investigated the effects of allogenic ASCs and their released products on cardiac rarefaction post MI...
