Service de psychiatrie « F », hôpital RAZI, faculté de médecine de Tunis, université de Tunis EL Manar, Tunisie.

Introduction: Cardiac mortality among patients diagnosed with mental disorders is higher compared to the general population. Some authors suggest that cardiovascular risk is related to intrinsic factors specific to psychiatric disease. Nevertheless, the interpretation of these results is limited by the concomitant prescription of antipsychotics which have a cardiovascular effect. Read More

Institut cardiovasculaire, groupe hospitalier mutualiste, 8, rue Dr Calmette, 38000 Grenoble, France. Electronic address:

Due to the steady increase in life expectancy, the number of patients over 80 years of age proposed for coronary angioplasty is increasing significantly. The elderly patient is a patient at high cardiovascular risk and high risk of bleeding; whose severity of prognosis depends of comorbidities. The radial approach presents particularities and technical difficulties that have to be known in this part of the population, but reduce vascular and hemorrhagic complications, as well as mortality.

Electronic address:

Bleeding complications are frequent in coronary artery disease patients and are associated with increased mortality. Among clinical factors increasing the risk of bleeding, age appears to be a major determinant, whatever the clinical presentation (stable disease, acute coronary syndrome, PCI). Evidence of the role of age comes from the weight given to age in most existing bleedingrisk scores. Read More

It's commonplace to declare that seniors are more fragile, because of a higher rate of comorbidities and complex coronary lesions. However, they take great benefit from angioplasty during acute coronary syndrome, with a higher rate of complications. Based on the study of claims reported to a French medical insurer, it is found that people over 75 years old among victims of interventional cardiology accidents is proportional to the population of seniors in the French population (around 10%).

The elderly benefit from the advances of the interventional cardiology, especially for coronary artery disease and aortic valve stenosis. The prevalence of comorbidities is high in old population, but the benefit-risk balance remains often positive. Chronic kidney disease is frequent and amplifies the risks of contrast-induced nephropathy and acute kidney injury with an impact on clinical course and outcomes, and additional costs. Read More

Service de cardiologie, institut mutualiste Montsouris, 75014 Paris, France.

Left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) is an alternative option to oral anticoagulation therapy in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. According to French regulations, this procedure is currently reserved for patients with formal contraindications to VKA and direct thrombin inhibitors. LAAO procedures reduce ischemic and stroke risks compared to no treatment and also reduce bleeding events compared to VKA therapy in eligible patients. Read More

Admission in cardiology departments of patients over 80 years old, even nonagenarians, for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is not uncommon in 2018. The management of these high risk and polypathological patients, with atypical clinical presentation, is not based on international guidelines or randomized studies, but rather on retrospective studies, expert consensus, and common sense. Each decision has to be individualized to the patient's situation. Read More

Lower Extremity Arteriopathy Disease in the elderly is frequent with an ongoing increase of it prevalence and incidence mainly due to diabetes, hypertension and aging of the population. Despite improvement of revascularization therapy, outcome in this population is poor affected by frailty of elderly patient. Aging is associated with a higher prevalence of below the knee disease and wound, often with diagnostic delay leading to a major rate of amputation, mortality and alteration of quality of life.

Unité de cardiologie interventionnelle, CHU de Henri-Mondor, 51, avenue du Maréchal de Lattre de Tassigny, 94010 Créteil, France.

Anti-thrombotic management of percutaneous coronary intervention and atrial fibrillation relies on dual antiplatelet therapy and anticoagulation respectively. Because of people ageing, the coexistence of coronary artery disease and atrial fibrillation is increasing. This coexistence raises concerns about the anti-thrombotic strategy, particularly about the association of dual antiplatelet therapy and anticoagulation, known as triple therapy. Read More

The choice of revascularization of coronary patients, if it is well codified in the general population, remains in the elderly subject a daily dilemma for the clinician. We report 4 clinical cases (80 years and over) elective for coronary artery bypass or percutaneous coronary transluminal angioplasty (PTCA). No randomized studies dedicated to this population are available. Read More

CAPIO, 113, boulevard Stalingrad, 69100 Villeurbanne, France; Dieulefit Santé, domaine de Chamonix, 26220 Dieulefit, France.

Secondary prevention is paramount in patients who are survivors of an acute coronary syndrome. Cardiac rehabilitation has proven to be effective for several decades in the long-term implementation of preventive measures. Despite this evidence, prescription and real participation in these programs remain limited for a many reasons, including the patient, physician, health care system. Read More

[Alteration of left ventricular longitudinal systolic function in 2D-strain in primary aldosteronism: A new target organ damage marker].

Ann Cardiol Angeiol (Paris) 2018 Nov 14;67(5):315-320. Epub 2018 Oct 14.

Centre d'excellence en hypertension artérielle, hôpital St-André, CHU de Bordeaux, 1, rue Jean-Burguet, 33000 Bordeaux, France.

Objective: Primary hyperaldosteronism is the leading cause of secondary hypertension, and leads to frequent cardiovascular complications. Many studies have studied left ventricular geometry and function in this population, but longitudinal systolic function is still poorly described.

Methods: We studied 35 hypertensive patients with primary aldosteronism, and 35 with essential hypertension matched for age, sex, body mass index, and 24h blood pressure. Read More

Service de cardiologie, hôpital Principal de Dakar, 1, avenue Nelson-Mandela, Dakar, Sénégal.

Introduction: Acute coronary syndromes have been rarely studied in the female population in Sub-Saharan Africa. This Sub-Saharan serie has shown an increase in the prevalence of acute coronary syndromes among the female population, compared to previous studies. Through this retrospective study, we evaluated the epidemiological, clinical, paraclinical, therapeutic and evolutionary features of acute coronary syndromes on women at the Principal Hospital of Dakar.

Inserm U1099, université Rennes 1, CHU Pontchaillou, 35033 Rennes, France.

The behavioral goals of the coronary patient require active management by the cardiologist. Every smoker must be clearly informed about the cardiovascular consequences of smoking and the major benefits of smoking cessation. The only advice to "quit smoking" is not enough. Read More

GHPSO, service de cardiologie, site de Creil, boulevard Laennec, 60109 Creil cedex, France. Electronic address:

The pathophysiology of acute coronary syndromes is in most cases due to the erosion or rupture of a plaque with consequent thrombotic obstruction of coronary artery. In a few cases, the mechanism is different, this not modifying the initial management but imposing special techniques for diagnosis and therapeutic management. We report a clinical case of a patient supported for an acute coronary syndrome, in a context of impaired general condition and biological inflammatory syndrome revealing a Horton's disease.

[Place of the exercise stress test at the sportsman].

Ann Cardiol Angeiol (Paris) 2018 Nov 6;67(5):361-364. Epub 2018 Oct 6.

Service de médecine du sport et explorations fonctionnelles, CHU, 33370 Grenoble, France.

Is the stress test still part of the useful examinations in the detection of risk heart disease in sports subjects? Should we continue to use it as a surveillance examination in coronary sports patients? Meta-analysis, considering a ST subshift of more than 1mm as a criterion for positivity, underline the low prevalence of abnormal examinations and a significant rate of false-positives. But for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease, it is mainly the evolution of the ST segment to effort or recovery and the occurrence of stress arrhythmias that detect true positivity. When coronary risk is more important (presence of risk factors, resumption of sport, intense and prolonged efforts), it seems lawful to recommend such a review on a regular basis among men over 40 years of age with two risk factors but Also among veterans taking up sport after a period of prolonged inactivity.
