Rosiglitazone, a Ligand to PPAR, Improves Blood Pressure and Vascular Function through Renin-Angiotensin System Regulation.

PPAR Res 2019 3;2019:1371758. Epub 2019 Feb 3.

Department of Pharmacology, Instituto Nacional de Cardiología Ignacio Chávez, Juan Badiano No. 1, Col Sección XVI, Tlalpan, 14080 México, Ciudad de México, Mexico.

Rosiglitazone (RGZ), a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR) ligand, has been reported to act as insulin sensitizer and exert cardiovascular actions. In this work, we hypothesized that RGZ exerts a PPAR-dependent regulation of blood pressure through modulation of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE)-type 2 (ACE2)/angiotensin-(1-7)/angiotensin II type-2 receptor (ATR) axis in an experimental model of high blood pressure. We carried on experiments in normotensive (Sham) and aortic coarctation (AoCo)-induced hypertensive male Wistar rats. Read More

Double Arterial Cannulation in the Critical Management of Neonatal Aortic Arch Obstruction With Closed Ductus Arteriosus.

World J Pediatr Congenit Heart Surg 2019 01;10(1):105-108

2 Department of Heart Valve Disease, National Medical Research Center, Novosibirsk, Russia.

The neonatal management of critical aortic arch obstruction in association with an arterial duct that remains closed or significantly constricted requires urgent surgical repair, with a postoperative focus on resolving the impaired function of compromised organs. Here, we present two neonatal cases illustrating the use of the dual arterial cannulation perfusion method in the complete repair of interrupted aortic arch and critical coarctation of the aorta with nonfunctional ductus arteriosus. We suggest that dual arterial cannulation, which provides total body perfusion (with the exception of cardiac perfusion during cardioplegic arrest of the heart), may be a good alternative to other perfusion strategies in cases of absent ductal blood flow, as this method allowed us to avoid the further development of severe multiple organ failure.

Confirmation of the role of pathogenic SMAD6 variants in bicuspid aortic valve-related aortopathy.

Eur J Hum Genet 2019 Feb 22. Epub 2019 Feb 22.

Center of Medical Genetics, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, University of Antwerp and Antwerp University Hospital, Antwerp, Belgium.

Progressive dilatation of the thoracic aorta leads to thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA), which is often asymptomatic but predisposes to lethal aortic dissections and ruptures. TAA is a common complication in patients with bicuspid aortic valve (BAV). Recently, rare loss-of-function SMAD6 variants were shown to contribute significantly to the genetic aetiology of BAV/TAA.

Cardiovasc Diagn Ther 2018 Dec;8(6):725-738

Department of Cardiology, Cardiovascular Center, St Luke's International Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

A bicuspid aortic valve and/or coarctation of the aorta (COA) are often associated with dilatation of the ascending aorta and para-coarctation. Congenital heart diseases (CHD), such as truncus arteriosus, transposition of the great arteries (TGA), tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), single ventricle with pulmonary stenosis/atresia and the Fontan procedure, are also associated with aortic root dilatation, aneurysm and rarely, dissection, which can be fatal and require aortic valve and root surgery. A significant subset of adults with complex CHD exhibit progressive dilatation of the aortic root even after repair due to aortic medial degeneration. Read More

Characterization and estimation of turbulence-related wall shear stress in patient-specific pulsatile blood flow.

J Biomech 2019 Mar 19;85:108-117. Epub 2019 Jan 19.

Department of Management and Engineering (IEI), Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden; Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV), Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden.

Disturbed, turbulent-like blood flow promotes chaotic wall shear stress (WSS) environments, impairing essential endothelial functions and increasing the susceptibility and progression of vascular diseases. These flow characteristics are today frequently detected at various anatomical, lesion and intervention-related sites, while their role as a pathological determinant is less understood. To present-day, numerous WSS-based descriptors have been proposed to characterize the spatiotemporal nature of the WSS disturbances, however, without differentiation between physiological laminar oscillations and turbulence-related WSS (tWSS) fluctuations.

Role of dexamethasone in the para-vertebral block for pediatric patients undergoing aortic coarctation repair. randomized, double-blinded controlled study.

BMC Anesthesiol 2018 Nov 30;18(1):178. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Department of Anesthesia , Surgical Intensive Care and Pain Management, Faculty of Medicine, Cairo University, Cairo, Egypt.

Background: Surgery for aortic coarctation requires special care during anesthesia due to severe pain during the lateral thoracotomy incision, intraoperative hemodynamic instability and the need for large doses of intra- and postoperative analgesics and vasodilators. Additionally, the postoperative care of patients is very important.

Aims: We aimed to compare ultrasound-guided paravertebral block performed using bupivacaine alone and bupivacaine with dexamethasone in terms of the intra- and postoperative analgesic requirements and hemodynamics, postoperative complications and ICU stay. Read More

Muscle-sparing extrapleural repair of neonatal aortic coarctation.

Multimed Man Cardiothorac Surg 2018 11 7;2018. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Cardiac Surgery Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois Lausanne, Switzerland.

The goal of surgical treatment of aortic coarctation is to relieve the pressure gradient on the aorta and to allow for subsequent growth of the repaired aorta. In this regard, coarctation resection and extended end-to-end anastomosis has become the surgical gold standard. Early and long-term results have been reported to be excellent. Read More

Replacement of the descending thoracic aorta after stent-graft failure.

Authors:
Thomas Schachner

Multimed Man Cardiothorac Surg 2018 Nov 9;2018. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Medizinische Universität Innsbruck Anichstrasse 35 6020 Innsbruck Austria.

Open surgery after failed endovascular aortic repair remains an important therapy. The potential modes of stent-graft failure include: type I endoleaks; progression of the aortic disease at the landing zones or proximal/distal to them persistent false lumen perfusion in post-dissection aneurysms; retrograde aortic dissection; stent-graft infection; and stent-graft collapse, fracture, or dislocation. The mortality associated with those procedures can be up to 20% depending on the complexity of the operation and the comorbidities of the patient, especially the presence of graft infection.

Congenital Thoracic Aortic Disease.

Radiol Clin North Am 2019 Jan;57(1):113-125

Department of Radiology, The University of Chicago, 5841 South Maryland Avenue, MC 2026, Chicago, IL 60637, USA.

Congenital abnormalities of the thoracic aorta encompass a variety of disorders with variable clinical manifestations ranging from asymptomatic to life threatening. A variety of imaging modalities are available for the evaluation of these anomalies with computed tomography (CT) commonly preferred due to its excellent spatial resolution and rapid acquisitions, avoiding the need of general anesthesia or even sedation. We review the embryology, imaging findings, and associations of multiple congenital thoracic aorta malformations with emphasis in the role of CT angiography in the evaluation of these pathologies.

The Heart Institute, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, 3333 Burnet Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45229, USA. Electronic address:

Coarctation of the aorta is a common congenital heart defect and can present at any age. Infants may carry a fetal diagnosis, or are generally diagnosed after auscultation of a murmur, although rarely present in shock. Those that escape early childhood detection typically present in adolescence and adulthood, generally with upper-extremity hypertension. Read More

Insulin resistance linked to subtle myocardial dysfunction in normotensive Turner syndrome young patients without structural heart diseases.

J Pediatr Endocrinol Metab 2018 Dec;31(12):1355-1361

Pediatrics' Department, Division of Cardiology, Faculty of Medicine, Cairo University, Cairo, Egypt.

Background Turner syndrome (TS) patients have increased cardiovascular risk. This cardiovascular risk is famously attributed to structural abnormalities of the left side of the heart such as aortic stenosis and aortic coarctation. However, due to insulin resistance and subsequent pathogenic mechanisms, normotensive TS patients without structural abnormalities may develop varying degrees of myocardial dysfunction. Read More
