OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to assess the hypothesis that mitral annular disjunction (MAD) is associated with abnormal annular dynamics due to decoupling of annular-ventricular function. BACKGROUND: MAD, defined as a separation between the atrial wall-mitral valve (MV) junction and left ventricular (LV) attachment, is a structural abnormality occurring in MV prolapse (MVP). Few data exist on the 3-dimensional (3D) geometry of MAD and its functional implication...

Skeletal and cardiac muscles are the only striated muscles in the body. Although sharing many structural and functional similarities, skeletal and cardiac muscles have intrinsic differences in terms of physiology and regenerative potential. While skeletal muscle possesses a robust regenerative response, the mammalian heart has limited repair capacity after birth. In this review, we provide an updated view regarding chicken ovalbumin upstream promoter-transcription factor II (COUP-TFII) function in vertebrate myogenesis, with particular emphasis on the skeletal and cardiac muscles...

BACKGROUND: With emerging global payment structures, medical systems need to understand longer-term impacts of care transition strategies. OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of a care transition program using patient navigators (PNs) on health service utilization among high-risk safety-net patients over a 180-day period. DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial conducted October 2011 through April 2013. PARTICIPANTS: Patients admitted to the general medicine service with ≥1 readmission risk factor: (1) age ≥ 60; (2) in-network inpatient admission within prior 6 months; (3) index length of stay ≥ 3 days; or (4) admission diagnosis of heart failure or (5) chronic obstructive pulmonary disease...

OBJECTIVES: Open heart surgery for interrupted aortic arch in the neonatal period is still a high-risk procedure related in part to patient factors such as low birth weight, other morphologic anomalies, and, especially, small aortic valve size. Recently, we performed hybrid palliation with bilateral pulmonary artery banding and ductal stenting as the first-stage palliation for such cases. In this study, the outcomes of this procedure were examined. METHODS: Six cases of interrupted aortic arch with a small aortic valve underwent the hybrid procedure in the neonatal period in our institute from 2010 to 2015 (mean age: 6...

Long-term survival after left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation in heart failure patients is mainly determined by a sophisticated after-care. Ambulatory visits only take place every 12 weeks. In case of life-threatening complications (pump thrombosis, driveline infection) this might lead to delayed diagnosis and delayed intervention. It is the intention of the international project Medolution (Medical care evolution) to develop new approaches in order to create best structures for telemonitoring of LVAD patients...

BACKGROUND: Recent data suggest that singleton fetuses conceived by assisted reproductive technologies (ART) present cardiovascular remodeling that may persist postnatally. Twin pregnancies are more frequent in the ART population, and are associated with increased adverse perinatal outcomes like hypertensive disorders, gestational diabetes and preterm birth. However, it is unknown whether cardiac remodeling is also present in twin pregnancies conceived by ART. Our aim was to assess the presence of fetal cardiac remodeling and dysfunction in twin pregnancies conceived by ART, as compared to spontaneously conceived (SC) ones...

Growing populations and ageing demographics lead to an increased burden of ischaemic heart disease and related cardiovascular interventions, resulting in pressure on healthcare systems. Although the healthcare system in Turkey has undergone comprehensive remodelling over the last decade, there are many challenges to overcome, including better reimbursement for cardiovascular interventions, standardisation of interventional cardiology services and research-related activities. In this manuscript, we present an overview of coronary and structural heart interventions in Turkey, as well as providing information on current reimbursement policies and the healthcare system...

Sparsely populated and with wide non-urbanised areas, Sweden faces specific challenges in providing publicly financed, high-quality and equal healthcare to all parts of the country. As a result, a decentralised organisation for acute coronary care has been developed with coronary care units and catheterisation laboratories in several small- and medium-sized city areas. In contrast, highly specialised non-emergent interventional procedures are centralised to a few high-volume centres, mainly located at university hospitals in large city areas...

Serbia's interventional community has been facing the multifaceted challenge of an ageing population with cardiovascular diseases as the primary cause of death nationwide, coronary artery disease (CAD) being the most prevalent subset. The following two fields of activity have marked the trajectory of progress in the field of interventional cardiology in Serbia: first, the expansion of the infrastructure, mainly through the opening of new catheterisation laboratories across all of the country's administrative regions, which has resulted in better accessibility to coronary interventions for the general population; second, the creation of national platforms for continuous education, training and the promotion of clinical research in interventional cardiology, with close programmatic links to European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI)-based educational initiatives, including the curriculum for interventional cardiology...

For the last five years, invasive cardiology in Poland has developed extensively. Currently, 98% of the 161 Polish cathlabs operate in 24/7 mode, 37 of them supported by cardiac surgery departments on-site. A certification curriculum for interventional cardiology operators is supported by dedicated workshops and scientific meetings during national conferences. The rise in the number of coronary angiographies and PCIs was paralleled by an increased use of drug-eluting stents, bioresorbable vascular scaffolds and physiologic assessment of coronary arteries...
