We experienced a case of ventricular assist with both a pulsatile-flow and a continuous-flow pump in a pediatric patient, and herein report the clinical course and characteristics of the pumps. A 6-year-old female was diagnosed with fulminant myocarditis and transferred to our hospital for mechanical support. After 12 days of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, we implanted a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) and a right ventricular assist device (RVAD) using centrifugal Gyro pumps with a membrane oxygenator in a paracorporeal fashion...

We conducted a meta-analysis to provide the survival rates for pediatric patients hospitalized with fulminant myocarditis requiring ECMO. The literature search was conducted using Embase, PubMed, MEDLINE and Elsevier for studies published before April 1, 2016. We focus on survival rates for pediatric patients hospitalized with fulminant myocarditis requiring ECMO, and studies that reported only on adult patients were excluded. Summary of the survival rates was obtained using fixed-effect or random-effect meta-analysis which determined by I (2)...

Acute myocarditis is a disorder characterized by an unpredictable clinical course which ranges from asymptomatic, incidentally discovered forms, to cases with fulminant course and adverse outcome. The most challenging issues in the context of acute myocarditis are the appearance of difficult to treat heart failure in the acute phase and the potential progression in the long-term to dilated cardiomyopathy. Areas covered: With respect to available treatment options in acute myocarditis, in the absence of specific guidelines, management is supportive and overall empirical, especially for the oligo- or asymptomatic patients with preserved ejection fraction...

Although some patients with fulminant myocarditis can be rescued owing to the improvements in mechanical circulatory support therapy, there are few reports providing evidence of cardiac rehabilitation during mechanical circulatory supports, particularly among pediatric patients. We treated two pediatric patients who underwent aggressive cardiac rehabilitation during mechanical support. Five days after the initiation of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation therapy aggressive cardiac rehabilitation was started in a 10-year-old girl with fulminant myocarditis...

Immune checkpoint inhibitors have improved clinical outcomes associated with numerous cancers, but high-grade, immune-related adverse events can occur, particularly with combination immunotherapy. We report the cases of two patients with melanoma in whom fatal myocarditis developed after treatment with ipilimumab and nivolumab. In both patients, there was development of myositis with rhabdomyolysis, early progressive and refractory cardiac electrical instability, and myocarditis with a robust presence of T-cell and macrophage infiltrates...

A 19-year-old male was admitted to our clinic with a diagnosis of suspected acute pericarditis and acute coronary syndrome. The initial diagnostics at our clinic revealed fulminant myocarditis. Twenty-four hours after admission, the patient's condition deteriorated, and he required mechanical ventilation and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Unfortunately, the patient died. Clinical course, postmortem pathohistological findings and virus serology indicated that an H1N1 viral caused fulminant myocarditis and was the primary manifestation...

Giant cell myocarditis (GCM) is a rare and commonly fatal form of fulminant myocarditis. During the acute phase, while immunosuppressive therapy is initiated, venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) support is commonly used as a bridge to heart transplantation or recovery. Until recently, conventional transesophageal echocardiography and transthoracic echocardiography were the tools available for hemodynamic assessment of patients on this form of mechanical circulatory support. Nevertheless, both techniques have their limitations...

Acute fulminant myocarditis is a life-threatening inflammatory disease of the myocardium characterized by the rapid deterioration of the hemodynamic status of the affected individual. With prompt recognition and appropriate management, complete recovery of ventricular function is likely within a few weeks. We introduce a 28-year-old man with acute fulminant myocarditis, who experienced circulatory collapse following acute angina and dyspnea. The patient had high troponin levels with low ejection fraction and normal coronary arteries...

We report a case of successfully treated acute fulminant myocarditis induced by ulcerative colitis with extracorporeal life support and infliximab. Myocarditis is a rare but crucial complication during an exacerbation of inflammatory bowel disease. In our case, we applied extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for cardiac rest under impression of acute myocarditis associated with ulcerative colitis, and added infliximab for uncontrolled inflammation by corticosteroid. As a result, our patient was completely recovered with successful weaning of ECMO...

Heart failure (HF) can be defined as cardiac structural or functional abnormality leading to a series of symptoms due to deficiency of oxygen delivery. In the clinical practice, acute heart failure (AHF) is usually performed as cardiogenic shock (CS), pulmonary edema, and single or double ventricle congestive heart failure. CS refers to depressed or insufficient cardiac output (CO) attributable to myocardial infarction, fulminant myocarditis, acute circulatory failure attributable to intractable arrhythmias or the exacerbation of chronic heart failure, postcardiotomy low CO syndrome, and so forth...
