Childhood obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is characterized by anatomical and functional upper airway abnormalities as pathophysiological determinants, and clinical symptoms are frequently clear. OSAS is widely described in rare genetic disorders, such as achondroplasia, Down syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, Pierre Robin sequence, and mucopolysaccharidosis. Craniofacial and upper airway involvement is frequently morbid conditions. In children with genetic diseases, the clinical symptoms of OSAS are often slight or absent, and related morbidities are usually more severe and can be observed at any age...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: The present report updates the characteristics and results of heart transplantation in Spain, mainly focused in the 2008-2017 period. METHODS: We describe the recipient and donor characteristics, surgical procedures, and outcomes of heart transplants performed in 2017. The 2017 data were compared with those obtained from 2008 to 2016. RESULTS: A total of 304 cardiac transplants were performed in 2017. Between 1984 and 2017, 8173 procedures were performed, 2689 of them after 2008...

The updated ESC guidelines on PAD were developed, for the first time, as a collaboration between cardiologists and vascular surgeons and unveiled at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) 2017 congress. Although awareness has improved, PAD is still associated with significant morbidity, mortality, and quality of life impairment. Primarily, the guidelines emphasize the need for a multidisciplinary management of these patients and propose "a vascular team". A new chapter on antithrombotic therapies is provided...

The recognition that obstructive disease of the epicardial coronary arteries, causing ischemic heart disease, can be treated with a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has been a major discovery in cardiology in the last 40 years contributing, in particular, to the reduction of mortality associated to acute myocardial infarction (AMI). However, even in the era of drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation, a sizable proportion of patients who undergo PCI may develop late or very late post-implantation complications, that occur in the form of restenosis, neoatherosclerosis and/or in-stent thrombosis...

Nuclear cardiology has not witnessed development of new tracers or hardware for many years. Hence there is a need for the development of improvised techniques. Dynamic cardiac single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is one such technique that has a potential to overcome the limitations of conventional myocardial SPECT including the absolute quantification of blood flow. The main goal of this study is to evaluate the effect of attenuation correction (AC) on estimation of the washout parameters extracted from dynamic SPECT using a conventional protocol...

REVIEW
Christopher Austin, Fred Kusumoto
Medical professional liability (MPL), traditionally known as medical malpractice, affects most electrophysiologists some point during their career, either directly through personal experience or indirectly by the experiences of colleagues. Despite this, most physicians struggle to accurately describe MPL in the context of clinical practice. Providers know little about the outcomes of malpractice claims as reporting of settled or litigated MPL cases is sparse in the medical literature. In the USA, individual patients can file a malpractice claim in a tort-based system, whereas in other parts of the world, no-fault malpractice systems are increasingly prevalent...

In the summer of 2016, delegates from the German Respiratory Society, the German Society of Cardiology and the German Society of Pediatric Cardiology met in Cologne, Germany, to define consensus-based practice recommendations for the management of patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). These recommendations were built on the 2015 European Pulmonary Hypertension guidelines and included new evidence, where available, and were last updated in the spring of 2018. This article focusses on the proposed risk stratification and assessment of disease progression in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), covering 3 parts: In part 1, methods and markers that are recommended to assess severity and progression of PAH are discussed and commented...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Heart failure clinical practice guidelines are fundamental and serve as framework for providers to deliver evidence-based care that correlates with enhanced patient outcomes. However, adherence, particularly to guideline-directed medical therapy, remains suboptimal for a multitude of reasons. RECENT FINDINGS: Despite robust clinical trials, updated guidelines and an expert consensus statement from American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology, and Heart Failure Society of America registry data signal that heart failure patients do not receive appropriate pharmacotherapy and may receive an intracardiac device without prior initiation or optimization of medical therapy...

Importance: A growing number of women are approaching childbearing age after arterial switch surgery for transposition of the great arteries. Prepregnancy counseling requires updated knowledge of the additional cardiovascular risks pregnancy poses for this cohort of women and the potential effect on their offspring; however, to our knowledge, this information is currently unknown. Objective: To determine the pregnancy outcomes of women with transposition of the great arteries after an arterial switch operation, as well as the outcomes of their offspring...

BACKGROUND: The 2017 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) blood pressure (BP) guideline provides updated recommendations for antihypertensive medication initiation and intensification. OBJECTIVES: Determine the risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) events among adults recommended and not recommended antihypertensive medication initiation or intensification by the 2017 ACC/AHA BP guideline. METHODS: The authors analyzed data for black and white REGARDS (REasons for Geographic And Racial Differences in Stroke) study participants (age ≥45 years)...

OBJECTIVE: Introduction: Medicinal plants are an effective means of prevention of many cardiovascular diseases in high-risk groups. Also, they are often used as a means of adjuvant therapy. Centuries of experience in the use of medicinal plants in folk medicine is the result of their relatively high efficiency and their wide distribution in natural ecosystems, and sometimes close to human habitation. The aim of this work is to study the assortment of herbal medicinal products and to consider examples of the basic methods of treatment of cardiovascular diseases with medicinal plants...

Current guidelines of the European Society of Cardiology advocate regular physical activity as a Class IA recommendation for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Despite its undisputed multitude of beneficial effects, competitive athletes with arterial hypertension may be exposed to an increased risk of cardiovascular events. This document is an update of the 2005 recommendations and will give guidance to physicians who have to decide on the risk of an athlete during sport participation.

The 2015 European Guidelines on Pulmonary Hypertension did not only cover pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) but also some aspects of pulmonary hypertension (PH) associated with chronic lung disease. The European Guidelines point out that the drugs currently used to treat patients with PAH (prostanoids, endothelin receptor antagonists, phosphodiesterase‑5 inhibitors, sGC stimulators) have not been sufficiently investigated in other forms of PH. Therefore, the European Guidelines do not recommend the use of these drugs in patients with chronic lung disease and PH...

BACKGROUND: After advancement of cardiovascular surgery, there is also exponential development of anesthetic techniques in this field. Patients with increasing clinical complexity challenge cardiac anesthesiologists to keep constantly updated. An evaluation of Brazilian's cardiovascular anesthesia fellowship at Dante Pazzanese Institute of Cardiology has been made and information has been collected to evaluate the fellowship program in cardiovascular anesthesia. METHOD: Target participants were made up of former fellowships, contacted via e-mail containing an invitation to voluntarily participate...

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has revolutionized the management of patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis and has become the standard of care for inoperable patients and the preferred therapy for those at increased surgical risk with peculiar clinical and anatomic features. Technology advances, growing experience and accumulating data prompted the update of the 2011 Italian Society of Interventional Cardiology (SICI-GISE) position paper on institutional and operator requirements to perform TAVI...
