Prognosis evaluation of universal acute coronary syndrome: the interplay between SYNTAX score and ApoB/ApoA1.

BMC Cardiovasc Disord 2020 Jun 15;20(1):293. Epub 2020 Jun 15.

Department of Cardiology, China-Japan Union hospital of Jilin university, 126 Xiantai Street, Changchun, 130031, China.

Factors associated with return of spontaneous circulation after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in Poland: a one-year retrospective study.

BMC Cardiovasc Disord 2020 Jun 12;20(1):288. Epub 2020 Jun 12.

Department of Public Health, Faculty of Health Sciences, Wroclaw Medical University, Wroclaw, Poland.

Background: Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is a common reason for calls for intervention by emergency medical teams (EMTs) in Poland. Regardless of the mechanism, OHCA is a state in which the chance of survival is dependent on rapid action from bystanders and responding health professionals in emergency medical services (EMS). We aimed to identify factors associated with return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). Read More

Population attributable risk estimates of risk factors for contrast-induced acute kidney injury following coronary angiography: a cohort study.

BMC Cardiovasc Disord 2020 Jun 12;20(1):289. Epub 2020 Jun 12.

The Second School of Clinical Medicine, Southern Medical University, Guangzhou, 510515, Guangdong, China.

Background: Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) is a common complication with poor outcomes following coronary angiography (CAG) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). However, no study has explored the population attributable risks (PARs) of the CI-AKI risk factors. Therefore, we aimed to identify the independent risk factors of CI-AKI and estimate their PARs.

Warfarin-associated intracranial haemorrhage in pregnant woman with double mechanical valve replacement: a case presentation.

BMC Cardiovasc Disord 2020 Jun 11;20(1):286. Epub 2020 Jun 11.

Department of Radiology, Koc University, Istanbul, Turkey.

Background: Management of warfarin-associated major haemorrhage in prosthetic valve diseases is difficult as there is a fine line between haemorrhage and thrombosis. An individual's propensity towards thrombosis, such as pregnancy, makes this situation even more complicated. Cases like these are very rare in the literature. Read More

Incremental prognostic value of aortic stiffness in addition to myocardial ischemia by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.

BMC Cardiovasc Disord 2020 Jun 11;20(1):287. Epub 2020 Jun 11.

Division of Cardiology, Department of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, 2 Wanglang Road, Bangkok Noi, Bangkok, 10700, Thailand.

Background: Aortic stiffness is an independent predictor of cardiovascular (CV) events and mortality. However, no data exists for the prognosis of combined aortic stiffness and myocardial ischemia. Using cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging, we assessed the association of aortic stiffness by pulse wave velocity (PWV), myocardial ischemia, and CV events in patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease (CAD).

Cardiovascular risk factor mapping and distribution among adults in Mukono and Buikwe districts in Uganda: small area analysis.

BMC Cardiovasc Disord 2020 Jun 10;20(1):284. Epub 2020 Jun 10.

Department of Disease Control and Environmental Health, School of Public Health, College of Health Sciences, Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda.

Background: Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) is experiencing an increasing burden of Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs). Modifiable risk factors including hypertension, diabetes, obesity, central obesity, sedentary behaviours, smoking, poor diet (characterised by inadequate vegetable and fruit consumption), and psychosocial stress are attributable to the growing burden of CVDs. Small geographical area mapping and analysis of these risk factors for CVD is lacking in most of sub-Saharan Africa and yet such data has the potential to inform monitoring and exploration of patterns of morbidity, health-care use, and mortality, as well as the epidemiology of risk factors.

Prognostic value of myocardial fibrosis in severe aortic stenosis: study protocol for a prospective observational multi-center study (FIB-AS).

BMC Cardiovasc Disord 2020 Jun 8;20(1):275. Epub 2020 Jun 8.

Clinic of Cardiac and Vascular Diseases, Institute of Clinical Medicine, Vilnius University Faculty of Medicine, Santariškių str. 2, LT-08661, Vilnius, Lithuania.

Background: Adverse cardiac remodeling with a myocardial fibrosis as a key pathophysiologic component may be associated to worse survival in aortic stenosis (AS) patients. Therefore, with the application of advanced cardiac imaging we aim to investigate left ventricular myocardial fibrosis in severe AS patients undergoing aortic valve replacement (AVR) and determine its impact with post-intervention clinical outcomes.

Methods: In a prospective, observational, cohort study patients with severe AS scheduled either for surgical or transcatheter AVR will be recruited from two tertiary heart centers in Denmark and Lithuania. Read More
