Cancer Therapy-Related Cardiac Dysfunction: An Overview for the Clinician.

Clin Med Insights Cardiol 2019 29;13:1179546819866445. Epub 2019 Jul 29.

Cancer therapy-related cardiac dysfunction (CTRCD) is one of the most feared and undesirable side effects of chemotherapy, occurring in approximately 10% of the patients. It can be classified as direct (dose-dependent vs dose-independent) or indirect, either case being potentially permanent or reversible. Risk assessment, recognition, and prevention of CTRCD are crucial.

Aortocavitary fistula as a complication of infective endocarditis and subsequent complete heart block in a patient with severe anemia.

J Community Hosp Intern Med Perspect 2015 11;5(6):29446. Epub 2015 Dec 11.

Department of Cardiology, Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY, USA.

Infective endocarditis has different presentations depending on the involvement of valvular and perivalvular structures, and it is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Aortocavitary fistula is a rare complication. We introduce the case of a 48-year-old female with native valve endocarditis, complicated by aortocavitary fistula to the right atrium, and consequently presented with syncope.

Myocardial Infarction in a Premenopausal Woman on Leuprolide Therapy.

Case Rep Med 2015 23;2015:390642. Epub 2015 Jun 23.

Division of Cardiology, Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, 1825 Eastchester Road, Bronx, NY 10461, USA.

Premenopausal women with chest pain syndrome may have nonatherosclerotic coronary arteries with abnormal coronary flow. Estrogens have cardioprotective effect improving coronary vasodilatation. This case report discusses the consequences of leuprolide use by decreasing estrogen levels which led to acute myocardial infarction.

Multimodality Imaging in Cardiac Sarcoidosis: Is There a Winner?

Curr Cardiol Rev 2016 ;12(1):3-11

Division of Cardiology, Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY. 1825 Eastchester Road Bronx, NY, 10461, USA.

Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disease of unknown cause that can affect the heart. Cardiac sarcoidosis may be present in as many as 25% of patients with systemic sarcoidosis, and it is frequently underdiagnosed. The early and accurate diagnosis of myocardial involvement is challenging. Advanced imaging techniques play important roles in the diagnosis and management of patients with cardiac sarcoidosis.

Left atrial appendage closure devices.

Clin Med Insights Cardiol 2014 10;8:45-52. Epub 2014 Jun 10.

Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY, USA.

Atrial fibrillation (AF) increases the risk for thromboembolic stroke five-fold. The left atrial appendage (LAA) has been shown to be the main source of thrombus formation in the majority of strokes associated with AF. Oral anticoagulation with warfarin and novel anticoagulants remains the standard of care; however, it has several limitations, including bleeding and poor compliance. Occlusion of the LAA has been shown to be an alternative therapeutic approach to drug therapy. The purpose of this article is to review the different techniques and devices that have emerged for the purpose of occluding this structure, with a particular emphasis on the efficacy and safety studies published to date in the medical literature.
