Inappropriate tests are responsible for longer waiting lists, higher economical costs for the National Health System and major clinical risks due to radiation exposure from prescription abuse of diagnostic testing. Clinical inappropriateness frequently derives from poor knowledge of guidelines, "defensive medicine" approach and/or repeat requests of patients and family members. About one third of non-invasive imaging tests are considered inappropriate.In order to define the most appropriate instruments for the follow-up of the most common cardiovascular diseases with the highest risk of inappropriateness, all the cardiologists of the Veneto Region (Italy), along with the local chapters of the main national cardiology societies and general practitioners have been involved by the Regional Section of the Italian Association of Hospital Cardiologists (ANMCO) in several scientific meetings on the following topics: hypertension, chronic ischemic heart disease, valvular heart disease, heart failure, and atrial fibrillation...

BACKGROUND: Inflammatory cardiomyopathy (infl-CMP) is characterized by increased cardiac inflammation in the absence of viruses, ischemia, valvular disease, or other apparent causes. Studies addressing the efficacy of immunosuppressive therapy in patients with infl-CMP are sparse. This study retrospectively investigates whether immunosuppressive agents on top of heart failure therapy according to current guidelines improves cardiac function and long-term outcome in patients with infl-CMP...

BACKGROUND: There is limited information on acute heart failure (AHF) and its treatment in sub-Saharan Africa. OBJECTIVE: To describe the clinical characteristics and causes of heart failure (HF), adherence to HF treatment guidelines, and mortality of patients with AHF presenting to Groote Schuur Hospital (GSH), Cape Town, South Africa. METHODS: This sub-study of The Sub-Saharan Africa Survey of Heart Failure (THESUS-HF) was a prospective and observational survey that focused on the enrolment and follow-up of additional patients with AHF presenting to GSH and entered into the existing registry after publication of the primary THESUS-HF article in 2012...

REVIEW
Elizabeth Potter, Thomas H Marwick
Left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (LVEF) is a simple measure of global systolic function that pervades the risk evaluation and management of many cardiovascular diseases. However, this parameter is limited not only by technical challenges, but also by pathophysiological entities where the ratio of stroke volume to LV cavity size is preserved. The assessment of global longitudinal strain (GLS) from speckle-tracking analysis of 2-dimensional echocardiography has become a clinically feasible alternative to LVEF for the measurement of myocardial function...

REVIEW
Amy G Fiedler, George Tolis
Valvular heart disease (VHD) affects a large number of patients annually. From a surgical standpoint, there are two primary options for valve replacement: mechanical or bioprosthetic. While there are clear advantages and disadvantages to either option, and recent literature does challenge some of the prior dictums of valve choice, a handful of absolutes remain true. Mechanical valves provide superior durability and freedom from re-operation when compared to their bioprosthetic counterparts, at the expense of bleeding or thrombotic complications associated with the need for lifelong oral anticoagulation...

The current American Heart Association (AHA)/American College of Cardiology (ACC) guidelines do not recommend antibiotic prophylaxis for infective endocarditis (IE) in patients with acyanotic congenital valvular heart disease due to lack of any proven benefit and potential harm associated with antibiotics. As recognized by the guidelines, some acyanotic congenital heart disease, such as ventricular septal defects (VSDs), are associated with a high velocity jet and pose a greater risk of peri-procedural endocarditis...

PROBLEM: Graduate medical trainees must be prepared to practice in a quality-driven system that values adherence to and documentation of evidence-based care. Few validated approaches exist to teach these skills. Our objective was to develop, implement, and evaluate an ambulatory practice improvement curriculum capitalizing on peer feedback aimed at improving cardiology fellow guideline knowledge, adherence, and chart documentation. INTERVENTION: Four outpatient topics were reviewed in dedicated 1-hour sessions: stable ischemic heart disease, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, and aortic valvular disease...

Genomics designates the coordinated investigation of a large number of genes in the context of a biological process or disease. It may be long before we attain comprehensive understanding of the genomics of common complex cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) such as inherited cardiomyopathies, valvular diseases, primary arrhythmogenic conditions, congenital heart syndromes, hypercholesterolemia and atherosclerotic heart disease, hypertensive syndromes, and heart failure with preserved/reduced ejection fraction. Nonetheless, as genomics is evolving rapidly, it is constructive to survey now pertinent concepts and breakthroughs...

Mitral regurgitation (MR) is the most frequent Valvular Heart Disease (VHD) and is an important cause of heart failure. MR can be caused by primary valve abnormality (Degenerative MR/Primary MR) or it can be secondary to cardiomyopathy (Functional MR/Secondary MR). Medical management alleviates symptoms but does not alter the progression of the disease. Current guidelines recommend surgery for moderate-to-severe (Grade > 3) MR in patients with symptoms or evidence of left ventricular dysfunction. Despite current practice guidelines, the majority of patients with severe MR do not undergo surgery...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: There is a growing emphasis on the conduct of large-scale, multicenter randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to guide decision-making in cardiac surgery. Here we review recent landmark RCTs in cardiac valvular surgery. RECENT FINDINGS: RCTs are the gold-standard level of data in medicine. However, there are unique challenges of conducting large-scale surgical trials including funding, blinding, generalizability, nonstandardization of the surgical technique, crossover, among others...

REVIEW
Erin A Fender, Chad J Zack, Rick A Nishimura
Isolated tricuspid regurgitation (TR) can be caused by primary valvular abnormalities such as flail leaflet or secondary annular dilation as is seen in atrial fibrillation, pulmonary hypertension and left heart disease. There is an increasing recognition of a subgroup of patients with isolated TR in the absence of other associated cardiac abnormalities. Left untreated isolated TR significantly worsens survival. Stand-alone surgery for isolated TR is rarely performed due to an average operative mortality of 8%-10% and a paucity of data demonstrating improved survival...

During the ESC congress in September 2017 in Barcelona, the new ESC guidelines were presented and are now available on the ESC website. The new guidelines cover management recommendations on following cardiovascular items: valvular heart disease, peripheral artery disease, ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and on dual antiplatelet therapy. The present document gives a summary of these guidelines and highlights the most important recommendations and changes in the management of these diseases. It will help to increase awareness about the new guidelines and may stimulate to consult the full document for specific items...

Helmut Baumgartner
Numerous new data on the diagnosis and management of valvular heart disease published since 2012 made an update of the practice guidelines of the European Society of Cardiology and European Association of Cardiothoracic Surgery necessary. This was particularly the case for the use of catheter interventional treatment, indications for intervention in asymptomatic patients, medical treatment and organization of care. This review summarizes the most important changes in the recommendations.

M Haude
After 5 years the European Society of Cardiology and the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery have released an update on the guidelines for the management of valvular heart diseases. In recent years published results of randomized trials in patients with aortic valve stenosis have resulted in updated recommendations for catheter-based prosthesis implantation (TAVI), which is now extended to patients presenting without a low risk for conventional surgical valve replacement. In mitral or tricuspid valvular disease, the recommendations for catheter-based therapies are less strong because of a lack of supportive scientific data...
