Valve area and the risk of overestimating aortic stenosis.

Heart 2019 Feb 16. Epub 2019 Feb 16.

Department of Cardiology, Hospital General Universitario Gregorio Maranon, Madrid, Spain.

Objective: To obtain reference values of aortic valve area (AVA) in a large population and to infer the risk of overestimating aortic stenosis (AS) when focusing on flow-corrected indices of severity.

Methods: We prospectively measured indices of AS in all consecutive echocardiograms performed in a large referral cardiac imaging laboratory for 1 year. We specifically analysed the distribution of AVA, indexed AVA and velocity ratio (Vratio) in patients with and without AS, the latter defined as the coexistence of valvular outflow obstruction (Vmax ≥2.

Left ventricular mechanical dispersion predicts arrhythmic risk in mitral valve prolapse.

Heart 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, California, USA.

Objective: Bileaflet mitral valve prolapse (MVP) with either focal or diffuse myocardial fibrosis has been linked to ventricular arrhythmia and/or sudden cardiac arrest. Left ventricular (LV) mechanical dispersion by speckle-tracking echocardiography (STE) is a measure of heterogeneity of ventricular contraction previously associated with myocardial fibrosis. The aim of this study is to determine whether mechanical dispersion can identify MVP at higher arrhythmic risk. Read More

Physical activity and left ventricular trabeculation in the UK Biobank community-based cohort study.

Heart 2019 Feb 5. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

William Harvey Research Institute, NIHR Barts Biomedical Research Centre, Queen Mary University of London, London, UK.

Objective: Vigorous physical activity (PA) in highly trained athletes has been associated with heightened left ventricular (LV) trabeculation extent. It has therefore been hypothesised that LV trabeculation extent may participate in exercise-induced physiological cardiac remodelling. Our cross-sectional observational study aimed to ascertain whether there is a 'dose-response' relationship between PA and LV trabeculation extent and whether this could be identified at opposite PA extremes.

Standards and core components for cardiovascular disease prevention and rehabilitation.

Heart 2019 Jan 30. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

Cardiology, Liverpool Heart and Chest NHS Foundation Trust, Liverpool, UK.

In 2017, the British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation published its official document detailing standards and core components for cardiovascular prevention and rehabilitation. Building on the success of previous editions of this document (published in 2007 and 2012), the 2017 update aims to further emphasise to commissioners, clinicians, politicians and the public the importance of robust, quality indicators of cardiac rehabilitation (CR) service delivery. Otherwise, its overall aim remains consistent with the previous publications-to provide a precedent on which all effective cardiovascular prevention and rehabilitation programmes are based and a framework for use in assessment of variation in service delivery quality.

Management of blood pressure in heart failure.

Heart 2019 Jan 23. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

The George Institute for Global Health, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK.

Hypertension is a common comorbidity in patients with heart failure and most drugs that have demonstrated to improve prognosis in this population have the potential to reduce blood pressure. Nonetheless, the relationship between blood pressure and clinical outcomes and the relevance of blood pressure reduction in heart failure remains unclear. This narrative review summarises the evidence currently available to guide blood pressure treatment in this patient group and highlights key questions for further research. Read More

Heart or heart-lung transplantation for patients with congenital heart disease in England.

Heart 2019 Jan 12. Epub 2019 Jan 12.

Adult Congenital Heart Centre and National Centre for Pulmonary Hypertension, Royal Brompton Hospital, London, UK.

Background: Increased longevity in patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) is associated with late complications, mainly heart failure, which may not be amenable to redo surgery and become refractory to medical therapy and so, trigger referral for transplantation. We assessed the current role and future prospects of heart and heart-lung transplantation for patients with CHD in England.

Methods: We performed a retrospective analysis of hospital episodes for England for 1997-2015, identifying patients with a CHD code (ICD-10 'Q2xx. Read More

School of Nursing, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Background: Healthcare costs are increasing in the USA and Canada and a substantial portion of health spending is devoted to services that do not improve health outcomes. Efforts to reduce waste by adopting evidence-based clinical practice guideline recommendations have had limited success. We sought insight into improving health system efficiency through understanding cardiologists' perceptions of factors that influence clinical decision-making. Read More
