Alcohol Intake in Patients With Cardiomyopathy and Heart Failure: Consensus and Controversy.

Circ Heart Fail 2022 May 20:101161CIRCHEARTFAILURE121009459. Epub 2022 May 20.

Department of Cardiology, Hillerød Hospital, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. (C.T.-P.).

Alcohol is often cited to be a common cause of cardiomyopathy and heart failure. However, in most available population-based studies, a modest-to-moderate alcohol consumption has been associated with favorable effects on the cardiovascular system, including a lowered risk of heart failure, compared with no alcohol consumption. Available genetic epidemiological data have not supported a causal association between alcohol consumption and heart failure risk, suggesting that alcohol may not be a common cause of heart failure in the community.

Primary prevention implantable cardioverter-defibrillator use in non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy based on arrhythmic risk stratification and left ventricular reverse remodeling prediction.

Heart Fail Rev 2022 May 19. Epub 2022 May 19.

Cardiology Department, Faculty of Medicine, Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt.

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) and significant ventricular arrhythmias in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) have been markedly reduced over the last couple of decades as a result of the advances in pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment. Primary prevention implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) plays an important role in the treatment of patients at risk of SCD caused by ventricular arrhythmias. However, the arrhythmic risk stratification in patients with DCM remains extremely challenging, and the decision for primary prevention ICD implantation based on left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) solely appears to be insufficient.

HDAC6 modulates myofibril stiffness and diastolic function of the heart.

J Clin Invest 2022 May;132(10)

Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiology, and.

Passive stiffness of the heart is determined largely by extracellular matrix and titin, which functions as a molecular spring within sarcomeres. Titin stiffening is associated with the development of diastolic dysfunction (DD), while augmented titin compliance appears to impair systolic performance in dilated cardiomyopathy. We found that myofibril stiffness was elevated in mice lacking histone deacetylase 6 (HDAC6). Read More
