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

Turku PET Centre, University of Turku and Turku University Hospital, Kiinamyllynkatu 4-8, 20520, Turku, Finland.

Aims: To provide a pooled estimation of contemporary pre-test probabilities (PTPs) of significant coronary artery disease (CAD) across clinical patient categories, re-evaluate the utility of the application of diagnostic techniques according to such estimates, and propose a comprehensive diagnostic technique selection tool for suspected CAD.

Methods And Results: Estimates of significant CAD prevalence across sex, age, and type of chest pain categories from three large-scale studies were pooled (n = 15 815). The updated PTPs and diagnostic performance profiles of exercise electrocardiogram, invasive coronary angiography, coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA), positron emission tomography (PET), stress cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR), and SPECT were integrated to define the PTP ranges in which ruling-out CAD is possible with a post-test probability of <10% and <5%.

Assessment of left ventricular outflow tract and aortic root: comparison of 2D and 3D transthoracic echocardiography with multidetector computed tomography.

Eur Heart J Cardiovasc Imaging 2019 Mar 16. Epub 2019 Mar 16.

The Heart Center, Rigshospitalet, Blegdamsvej 9, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Aims: Accurate echocardiographic assessment of left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) and the aortic root is necessary for risk stratification and choice of appropriate treatment in patients with pathologies of the aortic valve and aortic root. Conventional 2D transthoracic echocardiographic (TTE) assessment is based on the assumption of a circular shaped LVOT and aortic root, although previous studies have indicated a more ellipsoid shape. 3D TTE and multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) applies planimetry and are not dependent on geometrical assumptions.

Aims: Carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) has been widely used to risk stratify and predict coronary artery disease (CAD) despite its significant limitations. To test whether radial artery intima thickness (RIT) is closely associated with atherosclerotic risk factors, and whether RIT has an independent and additive value for diagnosis of CAD.

Methods And Results: One hundred and sixteen consecutive CAD patients and 79 age and gender-matched healthy controls were enrolled in this study. Read More

Relationship between changes in pericoronary adipose tissue attenuation and coronary plaque burden quantified from coronary computed tomography angiography.

Eur Heart J Cardiovasc Imaging 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Biomedical Imaging Research Institute, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, 8700 Beverly Boulevard, S. Mark Taper Building, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

Aims: Increased attenuation of pericoronary adipose tissue (PCAT) around the proximal right coronary artery (RCA) from coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) has been shown to be associated with coronary inflammation and improved prediction of cardiac death over plaque features. Our aim was to investigate whether PCAT CT attenuation is related to progression of coronary plaque burden.

Methods And Results: We analysed CTA studies of 111 stable patients (age 59. Read More

Differential association between the progression of coronary artery calcium score and coronary plaque volume progression according to statins: the Progression of AtheRosclerotic PlAque DetermIned by Computed TomoGraphic Angiography Imaging (PARADIGM) study.

Eur Heart J Cardiovasc Imaging 2019 Feb 20. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Division of Cardiology, Department of Internal Medicine, Severance Cardiovascular Hospital, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Yonsei University Health System, Seoul 03722, South Korea.

Aims: Coronary artery calcium score (CACS) is a strong predictor of major adverse cardiac events (MACE). Conversely, statins, which markedly reduce MACE risk, increase CACS. We explored whether CACS progression represents compositional plaque volume (PV) progression differently according to statin use. Read More

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
