BACKGROUND: The CPORT-E trial showed the noninferiority of nonprimary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) at hospitals without cardiac surgery on-site (SoS) compared with hospitals with SoS for 6-week mortality and 9-month major adverse cardiac events (MACE). However, target vessel revascularization (TVR) was increased at non-SoS hospitals. Therefore, we aimed to determine the consistency of the CPORT-E trial findings across the spectrum of enrolled patients. METHODS: Post hoc subgroup analyses of 6-week mortality and 9-month MACE, defined as the composite of death, Q-wave myocardial infarction, or TVR, were performed...

<u>Rationale:</u> Current cardiovascular clinical imaging techniques offer only limited assessment of innate immune cell driven inflammation, which is a potential therapeutic target in myocardial infarction (MI) and other diseases. Hyperpolarized magnetic resonance (MR) is an emerging imaging technology that generates contrast agents with 10-20,000 fold improvements in MR signal, enabling cardiac metabolite mapping. <u>Objective:</u> To determine whether hyperpolarized MR using [1- 13 C]pyruvate can assess the local cardiac inflammatory response following MI...

Myocarditis is an important but incompletely understood cause of cardiac dysfunction. Children with fulminant myocarditis often require inotropic or mechanical circulatory support, and researchers in some studies suggest that up to 42% of children who die suddenly have evidence of myocarditis. Recurrent myocarditis is extremely rare, and the vast majority of reported cases involve adult patients. Pediatric providers who suspect a recurrence of myocarditis have limited evidence to guide patient management because the literature in this domain is sparse...

Protein methylation plays a pivotal role in the regulation of various cellular processes including chromatin remodeling and gene expression. SET and MYND domain-containing proteins (Smyd) are a special class of lysine methyltransferases whose catalytic SET domain is split by an MYND domain. The hallmark feature of this family was thought to be the methylation of histone H3 (on lysine 4). However, several studies suggest that the role of the Smyd family is dynamic, targeting unique histone residues associated with both transcriptional activation and repression...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to examine the role of nutrition in pediatric dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). BACKGROUND: In adults with DCM, malnutrition is associated with mortality, whereas obesity is associated with survival. METHODS: The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute-funded Pediatric Cardiomyopathy Registry was used to identify patients with DCM and categorized by anthropometric measurements: malnourished (MN) (body mass index [BMI] <5% for ≥2 years or weight-for-length <5% for <2 years), obesity (BMI >95% for age ≥2 years or weight-for-length >95% for <2 years), or normal bodyweight (NB)...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about hemodynamics in adult, out-of-hospital (OHCA) patients following return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). A 1994 study when "high-dose epinephrine" use was common showed consistently elevated systemic vascular resistance (SVR) lasting ≥6 hours in 49 adult patients after return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). STUDY AIM: To characterize hemodynamic abnormalities in adult OHCA patients soon after ROSC. Our hypothesis was that, unlike the consistently high SVR values reported when "high-dose" epinephrine was in common use, there would be a more heterogenous distribution of SVR values using current adrenergic therapy...

OBJECTIVE: To examine whether obstetricians think that cardiac surgery is ethical in babies with common aneuploidies and whether insurance companies should be required to pay for these surgeries. STUDY DESIGN: A survey was e-mailed to 2,897 OB-GYNs and 898 (31%) actively practicing obstetricians responded to the survey. Respondents were asked whether it is ethical to offer cardiac surgery for babies with heart defects diagnosed with trisomies 21, 18, 13, and Turner Syndrome and whether insurance companies should be required to pay for such surgeries in cases of trisomy 18 or 13...

BACKGROUND: The effect of health status on the relationship between particulate matter (PM) and black carbon (BC) and cardiac autonomic function has not been examined sufficiently directly comparing patients with healthy participants. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the association patterns between size-fractioned indoor PM and BC and cardiac autonomic function in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients and their healthy spouses. METHODS: Twenty-four-hour heart rate variability (HRV) and heart rate (HR) was measured in eight pairs of stable COPD patients and their healthy spouses...

REVIEW
R Makaryus, T E Miller, T J Gan
Perioperative fluid management impacts outcomes and plays a pivotal role in enhanced recovery pathways (ERPs). There have been major advances in understanding the effects of fluid therapy and administration during the perioperative period. Improving fluid management during this period leads to a decrease in complications, decrease in length of stay (LOS), and enhanced patient outcomes. It is important to consider preoperative and postoperative fluid management to be just as critical as intraoperative management given multiple associated benefits to the patients...

Conjoined twins are a rare phenomenon with historically poor outcomes after separation. We present a review of 8 sets of conjoined twins operated on in Memphis, Tenn, from 1953-2016. Except for 1 set of twins, before 2010, all experienced at least 1 fatality either before, during, or as a result of separation. Since 2010, we have separated an additional 2 sets of conjoined twins with no mortality related to the separation, although 1 of the first twins had significant cardiac and respiratory abnormalities and died several years after the separation...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the characteristics of fetal ventricular septal defects (VSDs) that will be less likely to close prenatally. METHODS: In this 4-year retrospective cohort study, 148 fetuses had a diagnosis of a VSD during a comprehensive fetal anatomy survey. The VSD diagnosis was confirmed by color and pulsed wave Doppler studies. These fetuses were followed monthly until their birth. They had postnatal echocardiography performed within 1 month of age to assess the persistence of a VSD...

BACKGROUND: Amyloid deposition is a potential contributor to postoperative cognitive dysfunction. The authors hypothesized that 6-week global cortical amyloid burden, determined by F-florbetapir positron emission tomography, would be greater in those patients manifesting cognitive dysfunction at 6 weeks postoperatively. METHODS: Amyloid deposition was evaluated in cardiac surgical patients at 6 weeks (n = 40) and 1 yr (n = 12); neurocognitive function was assessed at baseline (n = 40), 6 weeks (n = 37), 1 yr (n = 13), and 3 yr (n = 9)...

C-type allatostatins (AST-Cs) are pleiotropic neuropeptides that are broadly conserved within arthropods; the presence of three AST-C isoforms, encoded by paralog genes, is common. However, these peptides are hypothesized to act through a single receptor, thereby exerting similar bioactivities within each species. We investigated this hypothesis in the American lobster, Homarus americanus, mapping the distributions of AST-C isoforms within relevant regions of the nervous system and digestive tract, and comparing their modulatory influences on the cardiac neuromuscular system...

Aims: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are crucial for the post-transcriptional control of protein-encoding genes, and together with transcription factors (TFs) regulate gene expression; however, the regulatory activities of miRNAs during cardiac development are only partially understood. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that integrative computational approaches could identify miRNAs that experimentally could be shown to regulate cardiomyogenesis. Methods and results: We integrated expression profiles with bioinformatics analyses of miRNA and TF regulatory programs to identify candidate miRNAs involved with cardiac development...

Objective: Female sex is a known risk factor for cardiac surgery, and tricuspid valve (TV) disease is more common in women. There are few data on sex-stratified surgical outcomes for isolated TV surgery. An administrative database was used to compare acute in-hospital outcomes between men and women undergoing isolated TV surgery. Methods: Patients aged >18 who underwent TV repair or replacement from 2004 to 2013 were identified using the National Inpatient Sample...

Introduction The History, Electrocardiogram (ECG), Age, Risk Factors, and Troponin (HEART) score is a decision aid designed to risk stratify emergency department (ED) patients with acute chest pain. It has been validated for ED use, but it has yet to be evaluated in a prehospital setting. Hypothesis A prehospital modified HEART score can predict major adverse cardiac events (MACE) among undifferentiated chest pain patients transported to the ED. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of patients with chest pain transported by two county-based Emergency Medical Service (EMS) agencies to a tertiary care center was conducted...

Associations between size-fractionated indoor particulate matter (PM) and black carbon (BC) and heart rate variability (HRV) and heart rate (HR) in elderly women remain unclear. Twenty-nine healthy elderly women were measured for 24-hour HRV/HR indices. Real-time size-fractionated indoor PM and BC were monitored on the same day and on the preceding day. Mixed-effects models were applied to investigate the associations between pollutants and HRV/HR indices. Increases in size-fractionated indoor PM were significantly associated with declines in power in the high frequency band (HF), power in the low frequency band (LF) and standard deviation of all NN intervals (SDNN)...

Miller-Fisher syndrome (MFS) is an uncommon neurological disorder that is considered a variant of the Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS). It is clinically defined by a triad of symptoms, namely ataxia, areflexia and ophthalmoplegia. These acute inflammatory polyradiculopathic syndromes can be triggered by viral infections, major surgery, pregnancy or vaccination. While the overall incidence of GBS is 1.2-2.3 per 100 000 per year, MFS is a relatively rare disorder. Only six cases of GBS after cardiac surgery have been reported, and to our knowledge, we describe the first case of MFS after coronary artery bypass surgery...
