Tricuspid valve-in-valve procedure: a step-by-step guideline.

Arch Cardiol Mex 2019 ;89(1):51-54

Department of Cardiology, National Medical Center, 20 de Noviembre ISSSTE, Mexico City, Mexico.

Objective: The aim of this study was to present a valve-in-valve (ViV) case and a step-by-step guideline on how to perform this procedure.

Methods: A 51-year-old female with a history of rheumatic heart disease and tricuspid valve replacement presented functional class deterioration, a transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) revealed prosthetic dysfunction due to thrombosis; therefore, a valvular replacement with a 27 mm bioprosthesis (Carpentier-Edwards Perimount) was performed without complication. 3 years after the procedure, the patients presented functional class deterioration (NYHA-III) with tricuspid dysfunction by TEE and the heart team decided to perform a transcatheter tricuspid ViV replacement.

Carotid plaque is a predictor of major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events in patients undergoing coronary angiography.

Arch Cardiol Mex 2019 ;89(1):5-11

Department of Cardiology, Hospital Universitario Lucus Augusti (HULA), Lugo, Spain.

Introduction: Carotid disease, measured as carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) and carotid plaque (CP), is associated with major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events (MACCE) in people without the previous atherosclerotic disease; however, there are few published data in patients undergoing coronary angiography. The aim of the study is to determinate if the carotid disease is associated with MACCE after coronary angiography.

Methods: A total of 390 consecutive patients underwent coronary angiography after exercise echocardiography and carotid ultrasonography between 2002 and 2013. Read More

Left bundle branch block as equivalent of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction: when yes, when not?

Arch Cardiol Mex 2019 ;89(1):25-30

Medicina Interna, Universidad de Antioquia, Hospital Universitario San Vicente Fundación, Medellín, Colombia.

A new or presumably new left bundle branch block along with ischemic symptoms has traditionally been considered an electrocardiographic equivalent of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, which should be brought to emergent reperfusion. However, several criteria have been proposed for its definition, but none has reached out an optimal diagnostic yield. Below we detail these criteria, their main problems and the advantages they have shown. Read More

Characteristics of mortality due to ischemic heart disease in Costa Rica from 1970 to 2014.

Arch Cardiol Mex 2019 ;89(1):38-50

Departamento de Estadística, Unidad de Investigación e Innovación en Ciencias de la Salud, Universidad Hispanoamericana de San José, Costa Rica.

Objective: To update some important aspects of the descriptive epidemiology of ischemic heart (EIC) disease in Costa Rica during the period 1970-2014.

Methods: EIC death rates were obtained in two periods: from 1930 to 1969 and then, for a more specific analysis, from 1970 to 2014, using moving and five-year averages, based on data from the Instituto Nacional de Estadística and the Centro Centroamericano de Población, to analyze them according to age, sex, geographical location and percentage contribution to the general mortality. Information was also obtained to determine the burden of the disease, in this case through Years of Adjusted Life for Disability, Years of Life Lost and Years of Life lost due to Disability.

[Molecular autopsy in sudden cardiac death].

Arch Cardiol Mex 2018 Oct - Dec;88(4):306-312. Epub 2018 Jul 18.

Centro de Investigación Biomédica en Red de Enfermedades Cardiovasculares-CIBERCV, Madrid, España; Institut Clínic Cardiovascular (ICCV), Hospital Clínic, Universidad de Barcelona, Institut d'Investigacions Biomèdiques August Pi i Sunyer (IDIBAPS), Barcelona, España.

Currently, there are a significant percentage of autopsies left without a conclusive diagnosis of death, especially when this lethal event occurs suddenly. Genetic analysis has been recently incorporated into the field of forensic medicine, especially in patients with sudden death and where no conclusive cause of death is identified after a complete medical-legal autopsy. Inherited arrhythmogenic diseases are the main cause of death in these cases. Read More

[Relevance of the detection of complex congenital heart disease by screening with pulse oximetry in apparently healthy newborns in health establishments].

Arch Cardiol Mex 2018 Oct - Dec;88(4):298-305. Epub 2018 Mar 13.

A review is presented of data published in medical literature related to the screening used for the early detection of complex congenital heart disease in apparently healthy newborns in several cities of the world, including those reported in Mexico. The screening was performed due to the knowledge of the pathophysiology of indirect hypoxia data, observation of differential cyanosis and the consequent difference in the values of pre- and post-ductal pulse oximetry derived from the ductal and/or atrial septal defect dependence of several severe congenital heart diseases. Multicentre research studies have also been carried out on a massive scale, thus justifying the usefulness of the practice for its daily implementation and at international level. Read More

[A novel agent in the treatment of heart failure with depressed systolic function].

Arch Cardiol Mex 2018 Oct - Dec;88(4):287-297. Epub 2018 Feb 28.

Sociedad de Lucha contra el Cáncer SOLCA, Guayaquil, Ecuador; Sociedad Ecuatoriana de Cardiología, Guayaquil, Ecuador.

Introduction: A review is presented on the evolution of the pharmacological treatment of heart failure (HF) in the last 25 years, from the concept of treatment with vasodilators to the blocking or inhibition of the renin angiotensin aldosterone system. Beta-adrenergic inhibition and its important contribution in the reduction of morbidity and mortality due to HF will be discussed along with the role of the natriuretic peptides. One of the most important studies in the cardiology area, and specifically in the management of HF, is presented, in which an approach is demonstrated of the modulator of the neurohumoral systems that are activated in these patients.

Multicomponent exercise decreases blood pressure, heart rate and double product in normotensive and hypertensive older patients with high blood pressure.

Arch Cardiol Mex 2018 Dec 26;88(5):413-422. Epub 2018 Feb 26.

Department of Adapted Physical Activity (DEAFA), School of Physical Education, University of Campinas, Av. Érico Veríssimo, 701. Cidade Universitária "Zeferino Vaz", Barão Geraldo, Campinas, SP, Brazil.

Objective: The present study aimed to investigate the effects of a 6-month multicomponent exercise program on blood pressure, heart rate, and double product of uncontrolled and controlled normotensive and hypertensive older patients.

Methods: The study included 183 subjects, 97 normotensives, of which 53 were controlled normotensives (CNS), and 44 uncontrolled normotensives (UNS), as well as 86 hypertensives, of which 43 were controlled hypertensives (CHS), and 43 uncontrolled hypertensives (UHS). Volunteers were recruited and blood pressure and heart rate measurements were made before and after a 6-month multicomponent exercise program. Read More
