Adherence to guideline-directed medical and device Therapy in outpAtients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction: The ATA study.

Anatol J Cardiol 2020 Jul;24(1):32-40

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

Objective: Despite recommendations from heart failure guidelines on the use of pharmacologic and device therapy in patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF), important inconsistencies in guideline adherence persist in practice. The aim of this study was to assess adherence to guideline-directed medical and device therapy for the treatment of patients with chronic HFrEF (left ventricular ejection fraction ≤40%).

Methods: The Adherence to guideline-directed medical and device Therapy in outpAtients with HFrEF (ATA) study is a prospective, multicenter, observational study conducted in 24 centers from January 2019 to June 2019. Read More

The ISCHEMIA trial: Implications for non-invasive imaging.

Anatol J Cardiol 2020 Jul;24(1):2-6

Department of Cardiology, Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU); Erlangen-Germany.

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is highly prevalent and constitutes the single most common cause of death worldwide. However, the diagnosis of CAD remains challenging. There are two ways to approach the diagnosis of CAD, namely (1) by a functional non-invasive stress test to detect ischemia (stress echocardiography, stress cardiovascular magnetic resonance, single-photon emission computed tomography, positron emission tomography) or (2) by imaging for stenosis visualization (coronary computed tomography angiography or invasive coronary angiography).

Network of Immunity in Infection, Malignancy and Autoimmunity (NIIMA), Universal Scientific Education and Research Network (USERN); Tehran-Iran.

A history of cardiovascular comorbidity or experiencing acute cardiac injury during the coronavirus disease 2019 is accompanied by a poor prognosis. Also, it seems myocardial ischemia (or infarction) accounts for a major part of the cardiac involvement observed in this disease. Therefore, particular consideration is needed to protect the cardiovascular system during this pandemic. Read More

Gruppo Villa Maria Care and Research, Maria Cecilia Hospital, Cotignola, and Anthea Hospital; Bari-Italy.

The appropriate timing of intervention and follow-up in asymptomatic patients with aortic stenosis remains controversial. Risk stratification is a key, especially with the use of a multimodality imaging approach, including exercise stress echocardiography. This review focuses on the use of exercise echocardiography in asymptomatic patients with moderate and severe aortic stenosis with preserved left ventricular ejection fraction. Read More

Does electrocardiogram help in identifying the culprit artery when angiogram shows both right and circumflex artery disease in inferior myocardial infarction?

Anatol J Cardiol 2020 06;23(6):318-323

Department of Cardiology, Faculty of Medicine, Yeditepe University Hospital; İstanbul-Turkey.

Objective: In a subgroup of patients with inferior myocardial infarction (MI), both the right coronary artery (RCA) and circumflex coronary artery (Cx) show potentially culprit lesions, and angiography may be insufficient to determine which artery is responsible for the clinical presentation. Although many electrocardiographic (ECG) algorithms have been proposed for identifying the infarct-related artery in patients with inferior MI, it is unclear whether the current algorithms have the discriminative power to identify the real culprit artery in these patients.

Methods: The patients with the diagnosis of acute inferior MI and underwent coronary angiography were enrolled in the study. Read More

Perspectives by a position statement on atrial fibrillation in acute heart failure a: Mechanisms and therapeutic approaches.

Anatol J Cardiol 2020 06;23(6):308-311

Department of Cardiology, Faculty of Medicine, Eskişehir Osmangazi University; Eskişehir-Turkey.

The co-existence of atrial fibrillation (AF) and acute heart failure (AHF) is frequently reported and can exacerbate either or both of them. Their combination leads to increased morbidity and mortality. Although there has been a lack of studies on the prevalence and significance, as well as the treatment, of AF in patients with AHF, a position statement from the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association and European Heart Rhythm Association has recently reviewed the latest evidence on AF in the setting of AHF.

The potential value of histological analysis of thrombi extracted through mechanical thrombectomy during acute ischemic stroke treatment.

Anatol J Cardiol 2020 04;23(5):254-259

3rd Department of Internal Medicine-Cardiology, University Hospital Kralovske Vinohrady and Third Faculty of Medicine, Charles University; Prague-Czech Republic.

Studies on thrombus composition in acute stroke or acute myocardial infarction may help elucidate clot etiology and understand reperfusion success or failure. Moreover, such studies may certainly aid in the development of new technologies aimed at retrieving specific subtypes of thrombi; as a matter of fact, thrombus composition is suggested to influence the choice of techniques used during mechanical thrombectomy and plays a role in potential device and thrombus interaction. Over the years, histological analysis on the composition of thrombi causing ischemic stroke has proved to be a powerful tool to set standard prevention and treatment protocols. Read More

Comparison of 3-year clinical outcomes between Endeavor Resolute® and Resolute Integrity® zotarolimus-eluting stents in an Asian population.

Anatol J Cardiol 2020 04;23(5):268-276

Cardiovascular Center, Korea University Guro Hospital; Seoul-South Korea.

Objective: There is a scarcity of comparative studies between Endeavor Resolute®-zotarolimus-eluting stent (R-ZES) and Resolute Integrity®-ZES (I-ZES) during long-term follow-up periods. Although the stent alloy and the polymer of these two ZESs are similar, the platform and the design of these two stents are different. This study was conducted to compare the efficacy and safety of these two different ZESs in the all-comer Korean patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) during a 3-year follow-up period.

Application of strain echocardiography in valvular heart diseases.

Anatol J Cardiol 2020 04;23(5):244-253

Department of Cardiovascular Diseases, University Hospital Leuven; Leuven-Belgium; Department of Cardiovascular Sciences, University of Leuven; Leuven-Belgium.

Echocardiographic strain imaging allows new insight into a complex cardiac mechanics and enables more precise evaluation of cardiac function. Hence, it has been shown to have clinical utility in a variety of valvular heart diseases. In particular, global longitudinal strain has been shown to be more sensitive to detect systolic dysfunction than left ventricular ejection fraction. Read More

The relationship between serum asymmetric dimethylarginine levels and radial artery spasm.

Anatol J Cardiol 2020 Mar;23(4):228-232

Department of Cardiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Sakarya; Sakarya-Turkey.

Objective: The use of the radial approach in coronary angiography or percutaneous coronary intervention has increased owing to its advantages over the femoral approach such as rapid patient mobilization and improved patient comfort. However, radial artery spasm (RAS) that occurs during the procedure is a crucial factor in transradial approach failure and access site switch. Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) is a naturally occurring, modified amino acid that inhibits nitric oxide (NO) production. Read More
