A 66-year-old man suffered a ventricular fibrillation cardiac arrest after an episode of chest pain. Despite advanced life support, his condition deteriorated; the situation was considered irrecoverable and resuscitation was discontinued. The patient was observed for about 5 min with irregular agonal gasping respirations evident but no palpable pulse. A gradual increase in the regularity of breathing pattern heralded the return of spontaneous circulation. An inferior myocardial infarction was diagnosed. Primary percutaneous coronary intervention was performed...

BACKGROUND: Although the implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) remains the main therapy in Brugada syndrome (BrS), it does not reduce life-threatening ventricular arrhythmia. Based on pathophysiological mechanisms, hydroquinidine (HQ) has been suggested for the effective prevention of arrhythmia. OBJECTIVE: To provide evidence-based data supporting HQ use to prevent life threatening ventricular arrhythmia in high-risk patients with BrS. METHODS: We performed a prospective multicentre randomised (HQ vs...

BACKGROUND: Aortic valve disease is a common condition that is easily treatable with cardiac surgery. This is conventionally performed by opening the sternum longitudinally down the centre ("median sternotomy") and replacing the valve under cardiopulmonary bypass. Median sternotomy is generally well tolerated, but as less invasive options have become available, the efficacy of limited incisions has been called into question. In particular, the effects of reducing the visibility and surgical access has raised safety concerns with regards to the placement of cannulae, venting of the heart, epicardial wire placement, and de-airing of the heart at the end of the procedure...

OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to evaluate the cardiotoxicity of a QX-314 analog (QX-OH) and a mixture of QX-OH and levobupivacaine (LL-1) and to compare the ability to resuscitate rats after asystole induced by levobupivacaine (Levo-BUP), QX-314, QX-OH, and LL-1. METHODS: First, we used the "up-and-down" method to determine median dose resulting in appearance of cardiotoxicity (CD50C) and asystole (CD50A) of Levo-BUP, QX-314, QX-OH, and LL-1 in rats. Safety index (SI; ratio of CD50C compared with 2-fold median effective dose needed to produce sensory blockade) of the 4 drugs was calculated...

BACKGROUND: Performing advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) in the cardiac catheterization laboratory (CCL) is challenging. Mechanical chest compression (MCC) devices deliver compressions in a small space, allowing for simultaneous percutaneous coronary intervention and reduced radiation exposure to rescuers. In refractory cases, MCC devices allow rescuers to initiate percutaneous mechanical circulatory support (MCS) and extracorporeal life support (ECLS) during resuscitation. This study sought to assess the efficacy and safety of MCC when compared to manual compressions in the CCL...
