Apical Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Prompting Aneurysm, Thrombus, and Cardiac Arrest in a 56-Year-Old Female.

Cureus 2022 Jun 18;14(6):e26067. Epub 2022 Jun 18.

Cardiology, Lincoln Medical Center, New York City, USA.

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most prevalent genetic cardiac disease while apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (apHCM) is a rare subset of HCM. The significance of this case report is to present apHCM, its chronological course, and its association with left ventricular aneurysm, thrombosis, and cardiac arrest. We present the case of a 56-year-old female with a past medical history of apHCM who was admitted for substernal chest pain, developed a ventricular storm (VT), and subsequently suffered cardiac arrest; resuscitation of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) was eventually achieved after 10 minutes.

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and exercise restrictions: time to let the shackles off?

Br J Cardiol 2020 20;27(2):11. Epub 2020 May 20.

Consultant Cardiologist Institute of Cardiovascular Medicine and Science, Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital, Thomas Drive, Liverpool, L14 3PE.

The health benefits of physical activity are well documented. Patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) are often discouraged from participating in physical activity due to a perceived increase in the risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD). As a result, only 45% of patients with HCM meet the minimum guidelines for physical activity, and many report an intentional reduction in exercise following diagnosis. Read More

Medicina (Kaunas) 2022 Jun 13;58(6). Epub 2022 Jun 13.

Institute for Quantum Biology, National Institutes for Quantum Science and Technology, 2-4 Shirakata, Tokai, Ibaraki 319-1106, Japan.

: Intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) and proteins containing intrinsically disordered regions (IDRs) are known to be involved in various human diseases. Since the IDPs/IDRs are fluctuating between many structural substrates, the dynamical behavior of the disease-related IDPs/IDRs needs to be characterized to elucidate the mechanisms of the pathogenesis of the diseases. As protein motions have a hierarchy ranging from local side-chain motions, through segmental motions of loops or disordered regions, to diffusive motions of entire molecules, segmental motions, as well as local motions, need to be characterized.

Hospital Universitario Central de Asturias (HUCA), 33011 Oviedo, Spain.

In around 40-60% of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) cases pathogenic variants are not identified. Our aim was to evaluate the possible association of lncRNAs with the risk of developing HCM. We sequenced 10 lncRNAs coding genes that have been associated with cardiovascular disease in a discovery cohort (238 HCM patients and 212 controls) by NGS, and genotyped rs74035787 G>A and rs1424019 A>G polymorphism in a validation cohort (962 HCM patients and 923 controls).

Myogenic Determination and Differentiation of Chicken Bone Marrow-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells under Different Inductive Agents.

Animals (Basel) 2022 Jun 13;12(12). Epub 2022 Jun 13.

State Key Laboratory for Conservation and Utilization of Subtropical Agro-Bioresources, Lingnan Guangdong Laboratory of Agriculture, College of Animal Science, South China Agricultural University, Guangzhou 510642, China.

Poultry plays an important role in the meat consumer market and is significant to further understanding the potential mechanism of muscle development in the broiler. Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) can provide critical insight into muscle development due to their multi-lineage differentiation potential. To our knowledge, chicken BM-MSCs demonstrate limited myogenic differentiation potential under the treatment with dexamethasone (DXMS) and hydrocortisone (HC). Read More

Single-nucleus profiling of human dilated and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Nature 2022 Jun 22. Epub 2022 Jun 22.

Precision Cardiology Laboratory and the Cardiovascular Disease Initiative, The Broad Institute, Cambridge, MA, USA.

Heart failure encompasses a heterogeneous set of clinical features that converge on impaired cardiac contractile function and presents a growing public health concern. Previous work has highlighted changes in both transcription and protein expression in failing hearts, but may overlook molecular changes in less prevalent cell types. Here we identify extensive molecular alterations in failing hearts at single-cell resolution by performing single-nucleus RNA sequencing of nearly 600,000 nuclei in left ventricle samples from 11 hearts with dilated cardiomyopathy and 15 hearts with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy as well as 16 non-failing hearts.

Implantable defibrillators in primary prevention of genetic arrhythmias. A shocking choice?

Eur Heart J 2022 Jun 21. Epub 2022 Jun 21.

Istituto Auxologico Italiano, IRCCS, Center for Cardiac Arrhythmias of Genetic Origin and Laboratory of Cardiovascular Genetics, Milan, Italy.

Many previously unexplained life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac deaths (SCDs) in young individuals are now recognized to be genetic in nature and are ascribed to a growing number of distinct inherited arrhythmogenic diseases. These include hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy, long QT syndrome, Brugada syndrome, catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (VT), and short QT syndrome. Because of their lower frequency compared to coronary disease, risk factors for SCD are not very precise in patients with inherited arrhythmogenic diseases. Read More

Image resampling and discretization effect on the estimate of myocardial radiomic features from T1 and T2 mapping in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Sci Rep 2022 Jun 17;12(1):10186. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Unit of Medical Physics, Pisa University Hospital "Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria Pisana", Via Roma 67, 56126, Pisa, Italy.

Radiomics is emerging as a promising and useful tool in cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging applications. Accordingly, the purpose of this study was to investigate, for the first time, the effect of image resampling/discretization and filtering on radiomic features estimation from quantitative CMR T1 and T2 mapping. Specifically, T1 and T2 maps of 26 patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) were used to estimate 98 radiomic features for 7 different resampling voxel sizes (at fixed bin width), 9 different bin widths (at fixed resampling voxel size), and 7 different spatial filters (at fixed resampling voxel size/bin width).

Case Report: Treatment of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy With Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy.

Front Med (Lausanne) 2022 1;9:799310. Epub 2022 Jun 1.

Department of Oncology, Xiangya Hospital of Central South University, Changsha, China.

Patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), which is characterized by left ventricular hypertrophy, is usually treated with medications such as calcium channel blockers or beta-blockers and invasive treatments such as transcatheter alcohol septal ablation, percutaneous radiofrequency ablation, or heart transplantation. However, non-invasive methods have not been employed for the management of patients with HCM. A 71-year-old male who presented with occasional chest pain for approximately 2 months and had been diagnosed with HCM since he was 39 years old due to occasional fainting was treated with a novel method for HCM using stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT).
