PURPOSE: To determine the diagnostic value of B-scan echography in optic nerve head (ONH) cupping estimation in children. METHODS: The medical records of pediatric patients who had previously undergone examination under anesthesia and for whom both adequate B-scan echography images and optic nerve head (ONH) photographs and were available were reviewed retrospectively. The cup:disk ratio was estimated with a grading scale of 0-1.0 and rounded to the nearest tenth; degree of cupping was estimated from B-scan echography (small, medium, or large) by 5 masked graders (3 glaucoma specialists and 2 ocular sonographers) on 2 separate occasions...

Biological motion is a problem for non- or mini-invasive interventions when conducted in mobile/deformable organs due to the targeted pathology moving/deforming with the organ. This may lead to high miss rates and/or incomplete treatment of the pathology. Therefore, real-time tracking of the target anatomy during the intervention would be beneficial for such applications. Since the aforementioned interventions are often conducted under B-mode ultrasound (US) guidance, target tracking can be achieved via image registration, by comparing the acquired US images to a separate image established as positional reference...

Various lung ultrasound (LUS) scanning modalities have been proposed for the detection of B-lines, also referred to as ultrasound lung comets, which are an important indication of extravascular lung water at rest and after exercise stress echo (ESE). The aim of our study was to assess the lung water spatial distribution (comet map) at rest and after ESE. We performed LUS at rest and immediately after semi-supine ESE in 135 patients (45 women, 90 men; age 62 ± 12 y, resting left ventricular ejection fraction = 41 ± 13%) with known or suspected heart failure or coronary artery disease...

INTRODUCTION: Sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors are anti-diabetic agents that improve glycemic control with a low risk of hypoglycemia and ameliorate a variety of cardiovascular risk factors. The aim of the ongoing study described herein is to investigate the preventive effects of tofogliflozin, a potent and selective SGLT2 inhibitor, on the progression of atherosclerosis in subjects with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) using carotid intima-media thickness (IMT), an established marker of cardiovascular disease (CVD), as a marker...

BACKGROUND: Cell senescence is involved in the process of organ damage and repair; however, the underlying molecular mechanism needs to be further explored. METHODS AND RESULTS: Senescence-related genes (ie, p21, p53, and ataxia telangiectasia mutated [ATM]) were shown to be elevated after myocardial infarction (MI) in both mouse and human hearts. Ten- to 12-week-old male wild-type littermates (ATM(+/+)) and ATM heterozygous mice (ATM(+/-)) were subjected to MI...

INTRODUCTION: Ventricular dysfunction requiring inotropic support frequently occurs after cardiac surgery, and the associated low cardiac output syndrome largely contributes to postoperative death. We aimed to study the incidence and potential risk factors of postcardiotomy ventricular dysfunction (PCVD) in moderate-to-high risk patients scheduled for open-heart surgery. METHODS: Over a 5-year period, we prospectively enrolled 295 consecutive patients undergoing valve replacement for severe aortic stenosis or coronary artery bypass surgery who presented with Bernstein-Parsonnet scores >7...

A 3-month-old female with ventricular septal defect underwent definitive repair. In the operation, a venting tube was inserted through the incised patent foramen ovale. The ventricular septal defect was closed using a patch and the incised patent foramen ovale was directly closed. A transesophageal echography showed no abnormal findings in the operating room. On 1st postoperative day, the patient's heart rate and pressure of the superior vena cava increased while blood pressure decreased. A transthoracic echocardiography revealed an atrial septal hematoma...

PURPOSE: To report emergent transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) to treat acute severe aortic regurgitation caused by valve cusp dysfunction following proximal migration of an endograft implanted in the ascending aorta during endovascular arch repair. CASE REPORT: A 65-year-old man had been previously treated with thoracic and fenestrated endografts in a 2-stage procedure for a chronic type B dissection. At 2-year follow-up, aneurysmal evolution of the distal arch led to development of a proximal type Ia endoleak...

The etiologic diagnosis of cerebrovascular diseases requires non-routine complementary examinations to be performed. Thus, in specific cases, after neuroimaging (computed tomography/magnetic resonance imaging cerebral scan sequences) and neurosonology (Doppler test of the supra-aortic trunks, transcranial echography and echocardiography), which academically allow us to classify the patients according to their etiologic stroke subtype, further examinations must be used to make a correct etiologic diagnostic...

PURPOSE: Differentiation between idiopathic left posterior fascicular ventricular arrhythmias (LPF-VAs) and posterior papillary muscle (PPM) VAs is of clinical value. This study aimed to develop an algorithm to distinguish PPM-VAs from LPF-VAs. METHODS: This study enrolled 73 consecutive cases, including 31 with PPM-VAs and 42 with LPF-VAs, undergoing successful ablation by using 3D mapping and intracardiac echography to confirm the origin of the VAs. Electrocardiographic and electrophysiological parameters were compared between two groups...

Short telomeres are associated with atherosclerosis. However, the temporal relationship between atherosclerosis and telomere length is unclear. The objective of this work was to examine the temporal formation and progression of carotid atherosclerotic plaques in relation to telomere dynamics. In a longitudinal study, comprising 154 French men and women (aged 31-76 years at baseline), carotid plaques were quantified by echography, and telomere length on leucocytes was measured by Southern blots at baseline and follow-up examinations...

OBJECTIVES: Atherosclerosis is becoming a more common problem for dialysis patients. Therefore, transplant surgeons are faced with the need to develop surgical techniques and procedures for severe atherosclerosis. This study aimed to clarify the clinical features, the usefulness of examinations, and operative procedures for kidney transplant recipients with the complication of severe atherosclerosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Among 220 kidney transplant candidates, 13 patients (severe atherosclerosis group) were predicted complications due to arterial calcification in the bilateral iliac arterial system using a computed tomographic scan...
