BACKGROUND: Recent meta-analyses suggested that screening program for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) in 65-year old males is cost-effective at prevalence of about 1%. Since some events occur also in females and among the youngers, screening could be feasible among those at higher risk, such as smokers or individuals with a family history of AAA. The RoCAV (Risk of Cardiovascular diseases and abdominal aortic Aneurysms in Varese) Project is a population-based study aimed to evaluate AAA prevalence in Northern Italy in males over-65 years as well as among females and younger males, and to identify new markers for risk stratification by collecting a large set of CVD risk factors...

OBJECTIVES: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). The primary aim of this study (HCM Risk-AF) was to determine the predictors of AF in a large multicentre cohort of patients with HCM. Exploratory analyses were performed to investigate the association between AF and survival and the efficacy of antiarrhythmic therapy in maintaining sinus rhythm (SR). METHODS: A retrospective, longitudinal cohort of patients recruited between 1986 and 2008 in seven centres was used to develop multivariable Cox regression models fitted with preselected predictors...

BACKGROUND: Existing criteria recommended by ACC/ESC for identifying patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) from the 12-lead ECG perform with high specificity (SP) but low sensitivity (SE). In our previous studies, we found that the SE of acute ischemia detection can be markedly improved without any loss of SP by calculating, from the 12-lead ECG, ST deviation in 3 "optimal" vessel-specific leads (VSLs). To further validate the method, we evaluated the SP performance using a dataset with non-ischemic ST-segment changes...

HISTORY AND ADMISSION FINDINGS: A 55-year old man suffers from progressive, distinctive dyspnoea and physical weakness since 5 days. Due to ST-segment changes in the ECG and a positive troponin-test, the primary care physician initiates an hospitalization. INVESTIGATIONS: After admission, the laboratory tests confirm the elevated troponin-values, and show additionally elevated pro-brain-natriuric-peptide-values. The coronary angiography presents a highly reduced left ventricular function, an aortic insufficiency III° and a coronary heart disease...

OBJECTIVE: The system of care in the Hunter New England Local Health District for patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) foresees pre-hospital thrombolysis (PHT) administered by paramedics to patients more than 60 minutes from the cardiac catheterisation laboratory (CCL), and primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) at the CCL for others. We assessed the safety and effectiveness of the pre-hospital diagnosis strategy, which allocates patients to PHT or primary PCI according to travel time to the CCL...

OBJECTIVES: The new Vancouver Chest Pain (VCP) Rule recommends early discharge for chest pain patients who are at low risk of developing acute coronary syndrome (ACS), and thus can be discharged within 2 hours of arrival at the emergency department (ED). This study aimed to assess the performance of the new VCP Rule for Asian patients presenting with chest pain at the ED. METHODS: This prospective cohort study involved patients attended to at the ED of a large urban centre...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: In patients with right ventricular pacing, the ECG shows a left bundle branch block (LBBB) pattern. There are several criteria to diagnose ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in patients with LBBB. The aim of this study was to validate and compare Sgarbossa's with two new scores - Selvester's and Smith's - in this context. METHODS: We identified pacemaker patients submitted to coronary angiography due to acute coronary syndrome. ECGs were analyzed by 2 blinded cardiologists...

OBJECTIVES: In acute inferior ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), multiple criteria have been proposed to predict the culprit artery based on the 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG). We assessed the utilities of 11 traditional and 2 new criteria to devise a new ECG algorithm to localize the culprit artery in acute inferior STEMI. METHODS: We analyzed electrocardiographic and angiographic findings of 194 consecutive patients with acute inferior STEMI to devise a new ECG algorithm, further validated in another cohort of 80 patients with acute inferior STEMI...

BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF), the most common arrhythmia in clinical practice, is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. Screening for AF in asymptomatic patients has been proposed as a way of reducing the burden of the disease by detecting people who would benefit from prophylactic anticoagulation therapy before the onset of symptoms. However, for screening to be an effective intervention, it must improve the detection of AF and provide benefit for those detected earlier as a result of screening...

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is associated with a favorable outcome only in patients with left bundle branch block (LBBB) pattern and in patients with a QRS duration > 150 ms, in patients with non-LBBB pattern with a QRS duration of 120-150 ms usually is not beneficial. After adjusting for QRS duration, QRS morphology was no longer a determinant of the clinical response to CRT. In contrast to the mainstream view, we hypothesized that the unfavorable CRT outcome in patients with non-LBBB and a QRS duration of 120-150 ms is not due to the QRS morphology itself, but to less dyssynchrony and unfavorable patient characteristics in this subgroup, such as more ischemic etiology and greater prevalence of male patients compared with patients with LBBB pattern...

A process to identify and target a selected population at risk of heart failure (HF) could facilitate screening and prevention. We sought to develop an effective screening process from clinical characteristics, functional capacity, and electrocardiogram (ECG). Asymptomatic subjects ≥65 years, with ≥1 HF risks were recruited from the community. Subjects with valvular disease, ejection fraction <40%, and atrial fibrillation were excluded. All underwent clinical evaluation including assessment of HF risk using Framingham HF score and Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) score, ECG, echocardiography, and 6-minute walk (6 MW) test...

PURPOSE: Sudden cardiac death is the leading cause of death in athletes. Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is one of the most common cardiogenetic diseases that can lead to sudden cardiac death and is identified by QT interval prolongation on an ECG. Recommendations for QT monitoring in athletes are adopted from nonathlete populations. To improve screening, ECG data of athletes are assessed to determine a more appropriate method for QT interval estimation. METHODS: ECG (CardeaScreen) data were collected from June 2010 to March 2015...

INTRODUCTION: The 2013 HRS/EHRA/APHRS consensus statement recommends the use of V1 and V2 leads recorded in the second and third intercostal spaces (High-ICS) for diagnosis of Brugada syndrome (BrS) creating a new category of patients discovered only with modified leads. The clinical presentation and the arrhythmic risk in these patients are ill defined. This study was aimed at assessing the role of High-ICS in the analysis of BrS and the clinical profile of the patients diagnosed only when ECG leads are moved to upper intercostal spaces...

CONTEXT: ST-segment elevations in two or more contiguous leads or new left bundle branch block (LBBB) on electrocardiography (ECG) in a patient with acute onset chest pain are diagnostic criteria for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and generally warrant urgent coronary angiography and cardiac catheterization. However, the significance of new right bundle branch block (RBBB) without other acute ECG changes is unclear and is currently not considered a criterion. CASE REPORT: We present a patient with chest pain, positive biomarkers of myocardial necrosis and isolated new right bundle block on ECG...

Myxedema coma (MC) is a life-threatening endocrine crisis caused by severe hypothyroidism. However, validated diagnostic criteria and treatment guidelines for MC have not been established owing to its rarity. Therefore, a valid animal model is required to investigate the pathologic and therapeutic aspects of MC. The aim of the present study was to establish an animal model of MC induced by total thyroidectomy. We utilized 14 male New Zealand White rabbits anesthetized via intramuscular ketamine and xylazine administration...

INTRODUCTION: Reversible premature ventricular complexes-induced cardiomyopathy (PVC-CMP) is a well-described, multi-factorial entity. Single predictors, such as PVC burden or QRS duration, may not apply equally to all patients in contemporary unselected populations including patients with structural heart disease (SHD) or with particular origin such as epicardial (EPI) PVC. We sought to evaluate clinical criteria associated with PVC-CMP notably focusing on the EPI origin impact and ECG recognition and the value of a new composite predictor of PVC-CMP, the PVC-CMP-Index...

BACKGROUND: Brugada phenocopies (BrP) are clinical entities characterized by ECG patterns that are identical to true Brugada syndrome (BrS), but are elicited by various clinical circumstances. A recent study demonstrated that the patterns of BrP and BrS are indistinguishable under the naked eye, thereby validating the concept that the patterns are identical. OBJECTIVE: The aim of our study was to determine whether recently developed ECG criteria would allow for discrimination between type-2 BrS ECG pattern and type-2 BrP ECG pattern...

INTRODUCTION: Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C) is characterized by high incidence of ventricular arrhythmias. Overt ARVD/C is preceded by a subclinical stage with lack of detectable ECG and structural abnormalities. Activation delay is present before structural abnormalities and is a hallmark of arrhythmogenesis. Deformation imaging may unmask activation delay in the subclinical stage. METHODS: Three groups were compared: (1) mutation-positive definite ARVD/C-patients fulfilling 2010 Task Force criteria (TFC) (n = 44); (2) asymptomatic mutation carriers not fulfilling TFC and without history of ventricular arrhythmias (n = 31); and (3) controls (n = 30)...
