Coronary vascular function in patients with resistant hypertension and normal myocardial perfusion: a propensity score analysis.

Eur Heart J Cardiovasc Imaging 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Advanced Biomedical Sciences, University Federico II, Via Pansini 5, Naples, Italy.

Aims: Impaired myocardial perfusion reserve (MPR) may occur earlier than coronary atherosclerosis and it may be an early manifestation of developing coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with resistant hypertension (RH). We evaluated the relationship between RH and MPR in patients with systemic arterial hypertension after balancing for coronary risk factors.

Methods And Results: We studied 360 subjects without overt CAD and normal myocardial perfusion at stress-rest 82Rb positron emission tomography/computed tomography. Read More

Haemodynamic management of patients with left ventricular assist devices using echocardiography: the essentials.

Eur Heart J Cardiovasc Imaging 2019 Jan 30. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

Department of Anaesthesiology, Ghent University Hospital, Corneel Heymanslaan 10, Ghent, Belgium.

Mechanical circulatory support with continuous-flow left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) has emerged as a viable treatment modality for patients with advanced heart failure. LVAD support results in unique haemodynamic and echocardiographic alterations that must be understood to provide optimal care for these patients. In this review, we propose essential echocardiographic and haemodynamic elements for the assessment of optimal LVAD function based on the literature and the use of simulation software. Read More

Assessment of myocardial oxygenation, strain, and diastology in MYBPC3-related hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: a cardiovascular magnetic resonance and echocardiography study.

Eur Heart J Cardiovasc Imaging 2019 Jan 21. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Flinders Medical Centre, 1 Flinders Drive, Bedford Park 5042, Adelaide, Australia.

Aims: Myocardial oxygenation is impaired in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) patients with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), and possibly also in HCM gene carriers without LVH. Whether these oxygenation changes are also associated with abnormalities in diastolic function or left ventricular (LV) strain are unknown.

Methods And Results: We evaluated 60 subjects: 20 MYBPC3 gene positive patients with LVH (G+LVH+), 18 MYBPC3 gene positive without LVH (G+LVH-), 11 gene negative siblings (G-), and 11 normal controls (NC). Read More

Sex-specific difference in outcome after cardiac resynchronization therapy.

Eur Heart J Cardiovasc Imaging 2019 Jan 15. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Department of Cardiovascular Diseases, University Hospitals Leuven, University of Leuven, Herestraat 49, Leuven 3000, Belgium.

Aims: Observation of better outcome in women after cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has led to controversies about a potential sex-specific response. In this study, we investigated to which extent this sex-specific difference in CRT outcome could be explained by differences in baseline characteristics between both sexes.

Methods And Results: We retrospectively analysed data from a multicentre registry of 1058 patients who received CRT. Read More

Department of Cardiology and Pneumology, Georg-August University, University Medical Center Göttingen, Robert-Koch-Str. 40, 37075 Göttingen, Germany.

Aims: The exact pathophysiology of Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) remains not fully understood with most studies focussing on ventricular pathology. Since atrial involvement may have a significant role, we assessed the diagnostic and prognostic potential of atrial cardiovascular magnetic resonance feature tracking (CMR-FT) in TTS.

Methods And Results: This multicentre study recruited 152 TTS patients who underwent CMR on average within 3 days after hospitalization. Read More

Division of Cardiology, Department of Internal Medicine II, Medical University of Vienna, Waehringer Guertel 18-20, 1090 Vienna, Austria.

Aims: Cardiac amyloidosis (CA) leads to signs and symptoms of heart failure (HF). The mechanisms of biventricular dysfunction and their impact on outcome in subtypes of CA are poorly understood. Our aim was to compare right ventricular (RV) and left ventricular (LV) parameters in patients with light chain (AL) and wild-type transthyretin amyloidosis (ATTRw) and evaluate their ability to predict cardiac outcome.

Department of Medicine, Columbia University, PH 3-342, 622 West 168th Street, New York, NY, USA.

Aims: Although ambulatory blood pressure (BP) is a better predictor of cardiovascular outcomes than office BP, its association with subclinical cerebrovascular disease is not clarified. We investigated the associations of office and ambulatory BP values with subclinical cerebrovascular disease in a population based, predominantly elderly cohort without prior stroke.

Methods And Results: Eight hundred and twenty-eight participants underwent 24-h ambulatory BP monitoring (ABPM), 2D echocardiography and brain magnetic resonance imaging in the Cardiac Abnormalities and Brain Lesion (CABL) study. Read More

Impact of procedural characteristics on coronary vessel wall healing following implantation of second-generation drug-eluting absorbable metal scaffold in patients with de novo coronary artery lesions: an optical coherence tomography analysis.

Eur Heart J Cardiovasc Imaging 2018 Dec 26. Epub 2018 Dec 26.

Section of Interventional Cardiology, MedStar Washington Hospital Center, 110 Irving Street NW, Suite 4B-1, Washington, DC 20010, USA.

Aims: Second-generation drug-eluting absorbable metal scaffold (DREAMS 2G) is an alternative novel device for treating coronary lesions. However, the relationship between in-scaffold dimensions after implantation of DREAMS 2G and vessel healing and luminal results at follow-up is unknown. The aim of this study is, therefore, to investigate whether the expansion index after implantation of DREAMS 2G as assessed by optical coherence tomography (OCT) impacts late luminal status and healing of the vessel wall.

Echocardiographic reference ranges for normal non-invasive myocardial work indices: results from the EACVI NORRE study.

Eur Heart J Cardiovasc Imaging 2018 Dec 19. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Departments of Cardiology, University of Liège Hospital, GIGA Cardiovascular Sciences, CHU Sart Tilman, Liège, Belgium.

Aims: To obtain the normal ranges for 2D echocardiographic (2DE) indices of myocardial work (MW) from a large group of healthy volunteers over a wide range of ages and gender.

Methods And Results: A total of 226 (85 men, mean age: 45 ± 13 years) healthy subjects were enrolled at 22 collaborating institutions of the Normal Reference Ranges for Echocardiography (NORRE) study. Global work index (GWI), global constructive work (GCW), global work waste (GWW), and global work efficiency (GWE) were estimated from left ventricle (LV) pressure-strain loops. Read More

Comprehensive evaluation of structural and functional myocardial impairments in Becker muscular dystrophy using quantitative cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.

Eur Heart J Cardiovasc Imaging 2018 Dec 24. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Centre de Référence de Pathologie Neuromusculaire Nord/Est/Ile-de-France, Institute of Myology, Assistance Publique des Hôpitaux de Paris, Groupe Hospitalier Pitié-Salpêtrière, 47-83 Boulevard Vincent Auriol, 75651 Paris, France.

Aims: Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD) is a genetic neuromuscular disease characterized by an alteration of the dystrophin protein. Myocardial involvement is frequent, eventually progressing to a dilated cardiomyopathy, and represents the most common cause of death for this pathology. We performed a comprehensive evaluation of myocardial functional and structural alterations encountered in a large cohort of BMD patients using quantitative cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging.

Cardiovascular risk is associated with a transmural gradient of myocardial oxygenation during adenosine infusion.

Eur Heart J Cardiovasc Imaging 2018 Dec 24. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Departments of Cardiology and Diagnostic Radiology, McGill University Health Centre, Royal Victoria Hospital, 1001 Decarie Blvd, Montreal, Canada.

Aims: In patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), a transmural gradient of myocardial perfusion has been repeatedly observed, with the subendocardial layer showing more pronounced perfusion deficits. Oxygenation-sensitive cardiovascular magnetic resonance (OS-CMR) allows for monitoring transmural changes of myocardial oxygenation in vivo. We hypothesized that OS-CMR could help identify a transmural oxygenation gradient as a disease marker in patients at risk for CAD. Read More
