BACKGROUND: Scar burden by late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) is associated with functional recovery after coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG). There is limited data on long-term mortality after CABG based on left ventricular (LV) scar burden. METHODS: Patients who underwent LGE CMR between January 2003 and February 2010 within 1 month prior to CABG were included. A standard 16 segment model was used for scar quantification...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to evaluate variability in aortic measurements with multiple imaging modalities in clinical centers by comparing with a standardized measuring protocol implemented in a core laboratory. BACKGROUND: In patients with aortic disease, imaging of thoracic aorta plays a major role in risk stratifying individuals for life-threatening complications and in determining timing of surgical intervention. However, standardization of the procedures for performance of aortic measurements is lacking...

BACKGROUND: Takotsubo syndrome is also known as stress cardiomyopathy because of the regularity with which it has been associated with physical or emotional stress. Such stress may well be a "trigger" of the syndrome. AIMS: This analysis was undertaken to describe our experience with this disorder and in particular to examine the effects of the underlying trigger on outcomes. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of the medical records of 345 consecutive patients treated at our institution from 2006 to 2014...

PURPOSE: Germ-line testing for panels of cancer genes using next-generation sequencing is becoming more common in clinical care. We report our experience as a clinical laboratory testing both well-established, high-risk cancer genes (e.g., BRCA1/2, MLH1, MSH2) as well as more recently identified cancer genes (e.g., PALB2, BRIP1), many of which have increased but less well-defined penetrance. METHODS: Clinical genetic testing was performed on over 10,000 consecutive cases referred for evaluation of germ-line cancer genes, and results were analyzed for frequency of pathogenic or likely pathogenic variants, and were stratified by testing panel, gene, and clinical history...

We report the case of a large right renal arteriovenous fistula (AVF) in a 74-year old woman who presented with heart failure. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed normal left ventricular size and systolic function (ejection fraction 60-65%), moderately dilated right ventricle with severely depressed systolic function, and severe pulmonary hypertension. Right heart catheterization confirmed the elevated pulmonary pressures and showed a high cardiac output. Physical examination was remarkable for a right flank bruit...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of knowledge-based iterative model reconstruction (IMR) on image quality in cardiac CT performed for the planning of redo cardiac surgery by comparing IMR images with images reconstructed with filtered back-projection (FBP) and hybrid iterative reconstruction (HIR). METHODS: We studied 31 patients (23 men, 8 women; mean age 65.1 ± 16.5 years) referred for redo cardiac surgery who underwent cardiac CT...

Patients with severe aortic stenosis and no obstructed coronary arteries are reported to have reduced coronary flow. Doppler evaluation of proximal coronary flow is feasible using transesophageal echocardiography. The present study aimed to assess the change in coronary flow in patients with severe aortic stenosis undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). The left main coronary artery was visualized using transesophageal echocardiography in 90 patients undergoing TAVI using the Edwards SAPIEN valve...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effects of a new model-based type of iterative reconstruction (M-IR) technique, the iterative model reconstruction, on image quality of prospectively gated coronary CT angiography (CTA) acquired at low-tube-voltage. METHODS: Thirty patients (16 men, 14 women; mean age 52.2 ± 13.2 years) underwent coronary CTA at 100-kVp on a 256-slice CT. Paired image sets were created using 3 types of reconstruction, i.e. filtered back projection (FBP), a hybrid type of iterative reconstruction (H-IR), and M-IR...

Cardiac fibromas represent the second most common benign cardiac mass seen in the pediatric population, but they are rarely seen in adults. Given their large size and unpredictable location within the heart, patients may present with varying symptomatology, and in many cases, the initial presentation is sudden death. Both echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging are critical to the early diagnosis and prompt treatment of these potentially dangerous primary tumors. We report a 29-year-old woman presenting with syncope and ventricular tachycardia...

While multi-detector cardiac computed tomography angiography (MDCCTA) prior to reoperative cardiac surgery (RCS) has been associated with improved clinical outcomes, its impact on hospital charges and length of stay remains unclear. We studied 364 patients undergoing RCS at Washington Hospital Center between 2004 and 2008, including 137 clinically referred for MDCCTA. Baseline demographics, procedural data, and perioperative outcomes were recorded at the time of the procedure. The primary clinical endpoint was the composite of perioperative death, myocardial infarction (MI), stroke, and hemorrhage-related reoperation...

OBJECTIVES: The study evaluated the relationship between cardiac computed tomography (CT) scout view x-ray attenuation and CT image noise compared with weight or body mass index (BMI). BACKGROUND: Decreasing peak tube voltage from 120 to 100 kVp on the basis of body size reduces radiation exposure. Methods to better predict CT image noise may lead to more effective selection of reduced tube voltage in cardiac CT. METHODS: Image quality was graded subjectively (1 [excellent] to 4 [nondiagnostic]) and objectively (SD of the aortic attenuation value) in cardiac CT angiograms (N = 106) acquired at either 100 or 120 kVp...

BACKGROUND: The cardiac CT Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) were updated in 2010 to reflect technical advances, evolving expert consensus, and rapidly expanding clinical evidence. OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the effect of the AUC update on their clinical performance, including the completeness and distribution of appropriateness ratings and test outcomes among a consecutive series of patients referred for CT angiography (CTA). METHODS: The 2006 and 2010 criteria were prospectively applied at the point of service to a consecutive series of patients referred for CTA at a single center (n = 1216)...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effect of hybrid iterative reconstruction on qualitative and quantitative parameters at 256-slice cardiac CT. METHODS: Prospective cardiac CT images from 20 patients were analysed. Paired image sets were created using 3 reconstructions, i.e. filtered back projection (FBP) and moderate- and high-level iterative reconstructions. Quantitative parameters including CT-attenuation, noise, and contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) were determined in both proximal- and distal coronary segments...

BACKGROUND: Retroperitoneal hemorrhage (RPH) is a serious but infrequent complication of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). This study aimed to describe the clinical outcomes of patients who developed RPH following PCI in the current practice era, with particular focus on treatment strategies and the related prognostic value of abdominal/pelvic computed tomography (CT). METHODS: Among 20,904 patients undergoing PCI, we identified 93 RPH (0.45%) confirmed by CT or by unequivocal surgical findings...

Coronary artery calcium (CAC) scanning is an important tool for risk stratification in intermediate-risk, asymptomatic subjects without previous coronary disease. However, the clinical benefit of improved risk prediction needs to be balanced against the risk of the use of ionizing radiation. Although there is increasing emphasis on the need to obtain CAC scans at low-radiation exposure to the patient, very few practical documents exist to aid laboratories and health care professionals on how to obtain such low-radiation scans...
