BACKGROUND: Current diagnostic criteria for noncompaction cardiomyopathy (NCC) lack specificity, and the disease lacks prognostic indicators. Reverse apical rotation (RAR) with abnormal rotation of the cardiac apex in the same clockwise direction as the base has been described in adults with NCC. The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that RAR might differentiate between symptomatic NCC and benign hypertrabeculations and might be associated with ventricular dysfunction. METHODS: Echocardiograms from 28 children with NCC without cardiac malformations were prospectively compared with those from 29 age-matched normal control subjects...

There are few case reports in the literature of transcatheter aortic valve replacement used as emergent therapy for aortic insufficiency. We present a case in which transcatheter aortic valve replacement was implemented successfully as a salvage therapy in a hemodynamically unstable patient experiencing aortic insufficiency as a result of a torn bio-prosthetic leaflet during an unrelated abdominal operation. The successful use of this technique in a non-cardiac operating room allowed the patient to be placed on extracorporeal support and ultimately to be discharged home...

INTRODUCTION: Current AHA/ACC guidelines on the management of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) suggest that an ECG is indicated within 10minutes of arrival for patients arriving to the Emergency Department (ED) with symptoms concerning for STEMI. In response, there has been a creep towards performing ECGs more frequently in triage. The objectives of this study were to quantify the number of triage ECGs performed at our institution, assess the proportion of ECGs performed within current hospital guidelines, and evaluate the rate of STEMI detection in triage ECGs...

BACKGROUND: Prolonged intubation following cardiac surgery is associated with significant morbidity. A fast-track extubation protocol primarily driven by bedside providers was instituted for all postoperative cardiac surgery patients to facilitate safe and expeditious extubation. METHODS: A retrospective review of 1581 cardiac surgery patients over an 8-year period was performed. Prior to 2011, non-protocolized standard perioperative management was utilized (n=807)...

PURPOSE: To derive specific maximal heart rate (HRmax) prediction equations for a coronary artery disease (CAD) population based upon status of β-blocker (BB) therapy and to compare these to prior HRmax equations (Fox and Brawner-specific for CAD). METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed stress echocardiogram treadmill tests in patients with CAD, dividing subjects into 3 groups based upon BB use on test day: not prescribed BB therapy (no BB group; n = 110); held for 12 to 24 hr prior (held BB group; n = 155); and continued taking (took BB group; n = 72)...

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 h 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...

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...

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)...
