A 34-year-old man with Brugada syndrome (BrS) presented with electrical storm, manifested as multiple appropriate shocks from his implantable cardioverter-defibrillator over a period of 7 hours. He had not tolerated prior treatment with quinidine, and had self-discontinued cilostazol citing persistent palpitations. After stabilization with intravenous isoproterenol, an electrophysiology study was performed but no spontaneous or induced ventricular ectopic beats were identified. A three-dimensional (3D) endocardial electro-anatomic map of the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT), pulmonic valve, and pulmonary artery, as well as a 3D epicardial map of the RVOT, were created...

OBJECTIVE: Ambulatory blood pressure measurement (ABPM) is recommended to assess optimal blood pressure (BP) control, the most important factor in management post acute aortic syndrome (AAS). Data in this case are lacking. ABPM has previously been shown to be more closely associated with prognosis than clinical values. We assessed these advantages in post AAS.(Figure is included in full-text article.) DESIGN AND METHOD: : We retrospectively collected data from 111 patients with Type B AAS from January 2004 to September 2014...

BACKGROUND: The BASE ACS trial demonstrated an outcome of titanium-nitride-oxide-coated bioactive stents (BAS) that was non-inferior to everolimus-eluting stents (EES) in patients presenting with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We performed a post hoc analysis of elderly versus non-elderly patients from the BASE ACS trial. METHODS: We randomized 827 patients (1:1) presenting with ACS to receive either BAS or EES. The primary endpoint was major adverse cardiac events (MACE): a composite of cardiac death, non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI), or ischemia-driven target lesion revascularization (TLR)...

Chediak-Higashi syndrome (CH-S) is a rare genetic immunodeficiency disorder. Fewer than 500 individuals with CH-S have been reported worldwide in the past 20 years. The dental management of patients in whom CH-S has been diagnosed has been rarely reported and only in the form of a case report. All reports addressed the severe periodontal disease found in those patients, and most studies concluded that periodontal treatment had an unfavorable prognosis. As a result, complete edentulism at an early age because of severe periodontal disease is expected...

Coronary artery stent fracture is a well described complication during percutaneous intervention, with rates ranging from 0.84 to 8.4 percent in first generation drug eluting stents. Complications of stent fractures usually present with symptoms of acute coronary syndrome or progressive angina days, months to years after initial implantation. We present a case of an acute stent fracture during post balloon dilation of an everolimus eluting stent at a critical stenosis junction of a saphenous vein graft to the first diagonal of the left anterior descending artery...

BACKGROUND: The term acute coronary syndrome (ACS) refers to any group of clinical symptoms compatible with acute myocardial ischemia. These high-risk manifestations of coronary atherosclerosis are important causes of the use of emergency medical care and hospitalization. We evaluated the feasibility and the acute performance of the everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) for the treatment of patients presenting with ACS. METHODS AND RESULTS: The present investigation was a prospective, single-centre study...

A 55-year-old man presented with progressive "enophthalmos" of his ocular prosthesis, 12 years after secondary orbital implant placement following evisceration of a severe traumatic globe rupture. The medial orbital wall was found to be displaced inwards, associated with ethmoid sinus opacification, and consistent with post traumatic silent sinus syndrome affecting the ethmoid paranasal sinuses. The authors present the clinical and radiological findings, review the literature on silent sinus syndrome of nonmaxillary sinuses, and discuss the possible mechanisms for his presentation...

BACKGROUND: Implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is a key treatment option for both primary and secondary prevention of sudden cardiac death. Despite this, there is a growing number of studies showing that ICD is often associated with post-implantation deleterious psychosocial effects, even in the absence of medical complications. Knowledge about the predictive role of pre-ICD psychological profile is scant. The present research aims to describe patients' pre-ICD psychological profile, focusing on acute and chronic distress, such as anxiety, depression, type D personality, psychosomatic syndromes and allostatic overload (AO), and to evaluate if these psychological variables could affect ICD outcomes and survival...

BACKGROUND: New endovascular techniques facilitate treatment of complex deep vein obstructions in cases of post-thrombotic syndrome. In a relevant number of these patients, endophlebectomy including the implantation of an arteriovenous fistula between the common femoral artery and the femoral vein is indispensable in order to establish a good inflow. These procedures display a high risk of wound complications. Despite conservative efforts to prevent these postoperative complications, wound healing problems occur in more than 20 % of cases...

BACKGROUND: Several patients with successful percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs) show evidence of coronary microvascular dysfunction (CMVD), which can be responsible for persistent positivity of electrocardiographic exercise stress test (EST). In this study, we assessed whether post-PCI CMVD may predict clinical outcome in patients undergoing successful elective PCI of an isolated stenosis of the left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery. METHODS: We studied 29 patients (age 64±6, 23 M) with stable coronary artery disease and isolated stenosis (>75%) of the LAD coronary artery who underwent successful PCI with stent implantation...
