Design and manufacture of a coronary stent INC-1 and initial tests in experimental animal model.

Arch Cardiol Mex 2020 ;90(2):163-168

Subdirección de Proyectos de Innovación y Desarrollo, Instituto Nacional de Cardiología Ignacio Chávez, Ciudad de México, México.

In this paper we describe our coronary stent (INC-1) design and development, the way that we found the specific characteristics needed for our device including biophysics aspects, design, finite element testing, manufacturing and mechanic trials we submitted and animal models experiences. The stent platform was cobalt-chromium L605 (Co-Cr), with struts thickness of 80 µm, balloon expandable. We placed the coronary stent INC-1 on a rabbit and dog models so we can evaluate efficacy and security of the device in relationship to its biomechanical properties including navigation capacity, traceability, symmetric expansion and safety.

Cardio protected areas in Mexico.

Arch Cardiol Mex 2020 ;90(2):207-215

Departamento de Medicina y Nutrición. Universidad de Guanajuato, León, Guanajuato, Mexico.

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) remains a major public health problem. Fortunately, with timely access to early defibrillation and high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation, an improvement in survival of victims of sudden death has been demonstrated. Efforts made in different countries to create programs for access to public defibrillation have shown great benefits in counteracting mortality associated with this type of event. Read More

Physiopathological and diagnostic aspects of cirrhotic cardiomyopathy.

Arch Cardiol Mex 2020 ;90(2):169-177

Servicio Social en Investigación. Hospital Regional ISSSTE Puebla. Puebla, México.

Cirrhotic cardiomyopathy is characterized by the presence of structural and functional cardiac alterations in patients suffering from hepatic cirrhosis, without previously known cardiac causes that may explain it. Clinically, it is characterized by the presence of variable grades of diastolic and systolic dysfunction, alterations in the electric conductance (elongation of corrected QT interval) and inadequate chronotropic response. This pathology has been related to substandard response in the management of patients with portal hypertension and poor outcome after transplant. Read More

Pediatrics patients head-up tilt test with pharmacological challenge, it is safe?

Arch Cardiol Mex 2020 ;90(2):178-188

Departamento de Cardiología Pediátrica. Instituto Nacional de Cardiología Ignacio Chávez, Ciudad de México, México.

Syncope in pediatrics represents an important cause of visits to the emergency units. For this reason, excluding a cardiac or malignant origin is essential at the time of the initial approach in order to determine what is the next step in management, or if they need to be referred to a pediatric cardiologist and/or electrophysiologist. Vasovagal syncope is the most frequent cause of syncope in pediatrics, in which a detailed clinical history is enough to make the diagnosis. Read More

Inteligencia Artificial en Cardiología, Departamento de Cardiología, Universidad de Groningen, University Medical Center Groningen, Groningen, Países Bajos, Finlandia.

Science and technology are modifying medicine at a dizzying pace. Although access in our country to the benefits of innovations in the area of devices, data storage and artificial intelligence is still very restricted, the advance of digital medicine offers the opportunity to solve some of the biggest problems faced by medical practice and public health in Mexico. The potential areas where digital medicine can be disruptive are: accessibility to quality medical care, centralization of specialties in large cities, dehumanization of medical treatment, lack of resources to access evidence-supported treatments, among others.

Current behavior of sudden cardiac arrest and sudden death.

Arch Cardiol Mex 2020 ;90(2):200-206

Departamento de Investigación, Sociedad Cardiovascular y Arritmias (SOCAyA), Aguascalientes, México.

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) and sudden death (SD) continues to be a global public health problem, although the true incidence is unknown, it is estimated that they are responsible for 30% of cardiac origin mortality and may represent 20% of total mortality in adults. Unfortunately, the majority of cases occur in the general population, at the out-of-hospital level, in homes and in people who were not known to have heart disease. Although the majority of SCD victims are considered to be of cardiac origin and more frequent ischemic, it is not possible to rule out other causes only with the clinical diagnosis. Read More

The prevalence of pregnancy in adolescent women is high in Mexico and represents a public health problem. The pregnant teenager with heart disease has a high probability of complications during pregnancy and the delivery, which carries a risk of death of both the mother and the product. In many cases the pregnancy should have been avoided, planned or interrupted, however the majority at this age is vulnerable and although certain cases must be interrupted by their high risk of maternal-fetal death, prevention and legal aspects should be considered.

Underexpression of endothelial nitric oxide synthase leads to more severe pulmonary complex vascular lesions associated with HIV patients.

Arch Cardiol Mex 2020 ;90(1):93-98

Department of Pharmacology. Instituto Nacional de Enfermedades Respiratorias "Ismael Cosío Villegas", Mexico City, Mexico.

Background: Despite increase in survival of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) patients due to highly active antiretroviral therapy, non-infectious complications are still prevalent such as presentation of lung vasculopathy, even in asymptomatic patients. Endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) is necessary to produce nitric oxide that causes pulmonary endothelial vasodilation. Participation of this protein in the pulmonary circulation in HIV patients has not been elucidated. Read More

Complete heart block (CHB) results from dysfunction of the cardiac conduction system, which results in complete electrical dissociation. The ventricular escape rhythm can have its origin anywhere from the atrioventricular node to the bundle branch-Purkinje system. CHB typically results in bradycardia, hypotension, fatigue, hemodynamic instability, syncope, or even Stokes-Adams syndrome. Read More

Hemodynamic profiles related to circulatory shock in cardiac care units.

Arch Cardiol Mex 2020 ;90(1):47-54

Departamento de Cardiología, Instituto Nacional de Cardiología Ignacio Chavez, Ciudad de México, México.

One-third of the population in intensive care units is in a state of circulatory shock, whose rapid recognition and mechanism differentiation are of great importance. The clinical context and physical examination are of great value, but in complex situations as in cardiac care units, it is mandatory the use of advanced hemodynamic monitorization devices, both to determine the main mechanism of shock, as to decide management and guide response to treatment, these devices include pulmonary flotation catheter as the gold standard, as well as more recent techniques including echocardiography and pulmonary ultrasound, among others. This article emphasizes the different shock mechanisms observed in the cardiac care units, with a proposal for approach and treatment. Read More
