Lower extremity artery disease (LEAD) is a sign of wide spread atherosclerosis also affecting coronary, cerebral and renal arteries and is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular events. Many economic evaluations have been published for LEAD due to its clinical, social and economic importance. The aim of this systematic review was to assess modelling methods used in published economic evaluations in the field of LEAD. Our review appraised and compared the general characteristics, model structure and methodological quality of published models...

AIMS: For acquired mechanical prosthetic heart valve (PHV) obstruction and suspicion on thrombosis, recently updated European Society of Cardiology guidelines advocate the confirmation of thrombus by transthoracic echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), and fluoroscopy. However, no evidence-based diagnostic algorithm is available for correct thrombus detection, although this is clinically important as fibrinolysis is contraindicated in non-thrombotic obstruction (isolated pannus)...

OBJECTIVE: Preprocedure meetings have become more commonplace in medicine but are not performed routinely in the cardiac catheterization laboratory. We sought to create, implement, and evaluate a preprocedural meeting in the form of a checklist for the cardiac catheterization laboratory. Staff attitudes and perceptions toward safety and sense of teamwork were also analyzed. DESIGN: All procedures performed in the cardiac catheterization laboratory on patients with structural heart disease from January 2010 to February 2012 were retrospectively reviewed for demographics, procedural details, and reported complications...

One of the longest running debates in cardiology is about the best reperfusion therapy for patients with evolving acute myocardial infarction (MI). Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY) is a surgical treatment to reopen a blocked coronary artery to restore blood flow. It is a type of percutaneous (through-the-skin) coronary intervention (PCI) also known as balloon angioplasty. When performed on patients with acute myocardial infarction, it is called primary angioplasty. Primary angioplasty is an alternative to thrombolysis, clot-dissolving drug therapy, for patients with acute MI associated with ST-segment elevation (STEMI), a change recorded with an electrocardiogram (ECG) during chest pain...

The use of meta-analysis in medicine is widespread nowadays, particularly in the field of interventional cardiology. Meta-analysis is a statistical approach aiming to combine date from a large number of patients from randomized clinical studies and/or non-randomized registries so as to obtain a pooled estimate of the results and to answer specific research questions. It is important to take the correct methodological approach in order to reach unbiased conclusions. In this article, we provide an updated review of the methodological approaches needed to perform meta-analyses of non-randomized data, and we suggest a simplified check-list of items to be considered when attempting to deploy this kind of meta-analysis...

Regulatory decisions and scientific statements regarding the management of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) raise questions about the safety of medications and the appropriate pretreatment evaluation to determine suitability for treatment with medication. This is particularly true in the setting of known structural or functional heart disease. The present paper reviews the available data, including peer-reviewed literature, data from the United States Food and Drug Administration Web site on reported adverse reactions in children using stimulant medication, and Health Canada data on the same problem...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the quality of care of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in a rural health region. DESIGN: Clinical audit employing multiple explicit criteria of care elements for emergency department and in-hospital AMI management. The audit was conducted using retrospective chart review. SETTING: Twelve acute care health centres and hospitals in the East Central Health Region, a rural health region in Alberta, where medical and surgical services are provided almost entirely by family physicians...

Randomized controlled trials (RCT) are the optimal study design to answer intervention questions. The authors evaluated the number, quality, and coverage of RCT in nephrology. MEDLINE was searched using the relevant medical subject headings for nephrology and 12 major specialties in internal medicine, limited by "randomized controlled trial" as a publication type. A random selection of 160 RCT in nephrology (40 for each decade) published since 1966 and an additional 270 RCT from ongoing or published Cochrane systematic reviews in various areas of nephrology, dialysis, and transplantation were evaluated for quality of reporting using standard criteria...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to assess the clinical concordance of expert cardiologists' interpretation of echocardiographic studies recorded on Super-VHS videotape or stored in magneto-optical disk, as well as the feasibility and clinical value of intelligent compression and digital storage of echocardiographic data as cine-loops and still-frames for interpretation of transthoracic echocardiographic images in clinical practice. METHODS: All clinical cardiologists experienced in echocardiography in our department (n = 10) reported on a standardized worksheet checklist the echocardiographic data of 7 consecutive patients (140 reports), and recorded them on videotape or magneto-optical disks to compare the interpretation of videotaped studies, acquired in the usual way, with clinically compressed studies stored to magneto-optical disks using a standard (Italian Society of Echocardiography) image acquisition protocol...

AIM: To compare anxiety, fears and behavioural problems in children with asthma and children with congenital heart disease, and with the normative population. To also review the influence of maternal anxiety, time since diagnosis and severity of disease. DESIGN: Children administered Fear Survey Scale (FSSC-R) and Child Manifest Anxiety Scale (R-CMAS). Mothers given Child Behaviour Checklist (CBCL) and State Trait Anxiety Scale (STAI-S and STAI-T). Normative means and SDs compared with means and SDs for both medical groups...

BACKGROUND: Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is the generic name for any ultrasound technology used in vivo within the blood vessels. More specifically, intracoronary ultrasound enables imaging of the coronary arteries from within the lumen. This review concentrates on the role of intracoronary ultrasound as an adjunct to interventional cardiology. OBJECTIVES: (1) To identify the literature on IVUS for guiding coronary interventions, and to synthesise evidence about outcomes compared with outcomes when IVUS guidance has not been used...

The authors describe an innovative continuing medical education (CME) program they developed to improve the ability of community practitioners to manage common cardiology problems. The program includes an objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) with nine standardized patient (SP) stations. The SPs are trained to use checklists to assess the examinees' clinical skills, and to enter the checklist data directly into computers located within each of the examining rooms. Checklists cover the participants' knowledge of cardiology, and their interviewing, physical-examination, and counseling skills...
