Intimal sarcomas simultaneously involving the right atrium and the inferior vena cava (IVC) are rare. We report an advanced cardiac intimal sarcoma in the right atrium of a 19-year-old man that was complicated by tumor-related IVC thrombosis. We initially performed partial tumor resection and vena cava thrombectomy to resolve the circulatory obstruction, because complete resection was difficult due to the invading malignancy and an unclear margin.

Background: As proven to reflect the work state of heart and physiological situation objectively, electrocardiogram (ECG) is widely used in the assessment of human health, especially the diagnosis of heart disease. The accuracy and reliability of abnormal ECG (AECG) decision depend to a large extent on the feature extraction. However, it is often uneasy or even impossible to obtain accurate features, as the detection process of ECG is easily disturbed by the external environment. Read More

Cumulative evidence has shown that coronary revascularization should be guided by functional significance of coronary lesions. Fractional flow reserve (FFR) is the gold standard for assessment of hemodynamic significance of coronary stenosis and FFR-guided percutaneous coronary intervention has improved clinical outcomes in patients with coronary artery disease. However, limitations of FFR such as increased operational time and cost, requirement of pressure wire and adenosine and technical difficulties have led to significant underutilization of the method in clinical practice.

Metal artifact reduction (MAR) is one of the most important research topics in computed tomography (CT). With the advance of deep learning approaches for image reconstruction, various deep learning methods have been suggested for metal artifact reduction, among which supervised learning methods are most popular. However, matched metal-artifact-free and metal artifact corrupted image pairs are difficult to obtain in real CT acquisition. Read More
