COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on service provision: A cardiology prospect.

Acta Cardiol 2020 Jul 10:1-8. Epub 2020 Jul 10.

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital, Liverpool, UK.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has significantly impacted the availability of cardiology services and management of cardiac conditions. Elective surgeries, outpatient appointments and cardiac imaging have been largely cancelled across the world due to the risk of infection transmission and the need for reallocation of resources to deal with the increasing number of COVID-19 patients. The impact on patients with cardiac co-morbidities during these times may be drastic. Read More

Remote ischaemic conditioning in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction treated with percutaneous coronary intervention: an updated meta-analysis of clinical outcomes.

Acta Cardiol 2020 Jul 3:1-9. Epub 2020 Jul 3.

Department of Cardiology, Deutsches Hospital, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

All previous meta-analyses including clinical outcomes after remote ischaemic conditioning (RIC) in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction STEMI) treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) demonstrated that RIC significantly reduced all-cause mortality and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE). Following the publication of these meta-analyses, three new randomised controlled clinical trials (RCT) including 5712 patients were reported. The objective of this study was to perform an updated meta-analysis about the effectiveness of RIC in reducing MACE in patients with STEMI undergoing PCI. Read More

Use of cardiac telerehabilitation during COVID-19 pandemic in Belgium.

Acta Cardiol 2020 Jun 30:1-4. Epub 2020 Jun 30.

Faculty of Medicine and Life Sciences, Hasselt University, Diepenbeek, Limburg, Belgium.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many cardiac rehabilitation centres to focus more on the remote delivery of cardiac rehabilitation (CR) components. This increased focus and the lessons learned from this period could enhance the implementation of telerehabilitation and increase the participation in CR in Belgium. We conducted a survey between April and May 2020 about the implementation of telerehabilitation services during the COVID-19 pandemic. Read More

Aortic valve: anatomy and structure and the role of vasculature in the degenerative process.

Acta Cardiol 2020 Jun 30:1-14. Epub 2020 Jun 30.

First Department of Cardiology, 'Hippokration' Hospital, Medical School, University of Athens, Athens, Greece.

Aortic valve stenosis is a degenerative disease affecting increasing number of individuals and characterised by thickening, calcification and fibrosis of the valve resulting in restricted valve motion. Degeneration of the aortic valve is no longer considered a passive deposition of calcium, but an active process that involves certain mechanisms, that is endothelial dysfunction, inflammation, increased oxidative stress, calcification, bone formation, lipid deposition, extracellular matrix (ECM) remodelling and neoangiogenesis. Accumulating evidence indicates an important role for neoangiogenesis (i. Read More

Heart failure is associated with accelerated age related metabolic bone disease.

Acta Cardiol 2020 Jun 5:1-9. Epub 2020 Jun 5.

Department of Cardiology, Ziekenhuis Oost-Limburg, Genk, Belgium.

The heart failure (HF)-syndrome is associated with neuro-hormonal activation, chronic kidney disease (CKD), inflammation and alterations in the phosphorus-metabolism, all of which are involved in regulation of mineral bone density. However, the role of HF as an independent factor associated with metabolic bone disease (MBD) remains unclear. HF-patients undergoing dual X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) were matched in a 1:2 fashion against age and gender matched controls without HF, to determine the proportion of osteoporosis (T-score < -2.

Agreement between three-dimensional planimetry and mitral navigation method in the assessment of mitral valve area in rheumatic severe mitral stenosis.

Acta Cardiol 2020 May 26:1-7. Epub 2020 May 26.

Department of Cardiology, Medipol University Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Rheumatic heart disease predisposes to structural changes in the mitral valve including commissural fusion and calcification with subsequent narrowing of the mitral valve orifice resulting in rheumatic mitral stenosis (RMS). To define the best therapeutic strategy, an accurate measurement of mitral valve area (MVA) for RMS is of paramount importance. The propose of the present study was to assess the agreement between the mitral navigation method (MVN) and three-dimensional (3D) planimetry in the assessment of MVA in patients with RMS. Read More

The development of dedicated expertise in chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) techniques is a time-consuming process that makes the CTO-operator more versatile and resolute in routine PCI. We describe three characteristic cases where the use of a specific CTO-technique was applied in the setting of complicated PCI to prevent a "nightmare" in the catheterisation laboratory. More specifically, management of occlusive dissections was successfully mastered with a retrograde technique in the first case, with a sub-intimal transcatheter withdrawal technique in the second one and with an antegrade dissection-re-entry technique in the last patient.

Prognostic impact of bundle branch blocks in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction.

Acta Cardiol 2020 Apr 14:1-6. Epub 2020 Apr 14.

Bahçesehir University Hospital, İstanbul, Turkey.

In this study we aim to determine and compare short term outcomes of all type bundle branch blocks (BBB) according to their onset time among those patients presented with ST-Segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI). Three thousand fifty-seven ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction patients who underwent pPCI were retrospectively evaluated. Those patients with BBB in their ECG on admission were re-evaluated for their prior ECG records. Read More
