Persistent hyperlactaemia is related to high rates of in-hospital adverse events and poor outcome in acute heart failure.

Kardiol Pol 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Heart Diseases, Wroclaw Medical University, Wroclaw, Poland, Poland.

Background: Although lactate is a well-established marker in intensive care, our understanding of its utility in acute heart failure (AHF) is modest and is based on studies with a single measurement of the marker.

Aim: Our aim was to investigate whether persistent elevation of lactate during hospitalisation is related to a higher risk of adverse events.

Methods: We conducted a prospective study to assess AHF patients hospitalised in one cardiac centre. Read More

Elevated lactate in acute heart failure patients with intracellular iron deficiency as identifier of poor outcome.

Kardiol Pol 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Heart Diseases, Wroclaw Medical University, Wroclaw, Poland, Poland.

Background: We believe that there is a physiological link between intracellular iron status (assessed by sTfR (soluble transferrin receptor)) and efficiency of energy production/consumption (assessed by lactate, a product of anaerobic cell metabolism), which may further impact the outcome of patients with acute heart failure (AHF).

Aim: To examine if elevated lactates (>2 mmol/L) accompanied with unmet cellular iron requirements (defined by sTfR of >1.59 mg/L) identify AHF patients with an unfavourable outcome. Read More

Variability of gelatinase expression in the walls of vessels used as aortocoronary conduits may impact on the long-term graft patency.

Kardiol Pol 2019 Jan 24. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Department of Histology and Embryology, Poznan University of Medical Sciences, Poznan, Poland.

Background: An imbalance in activity between matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), particularly gelatinases, and tissue inhibitors (TIMPs) is considered as one of the mechanisms leading to aortocoronary graft failure.

Aim: To assess variability of gelatinase expression in the walls of aortocoronary conduits and to check its impact on coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) outcomes.

Methods: This study involved 101 consecutive patients (61 men and 40 women) who underwent CABG. Read More

Left ventricular contractile reserve in stress echocardiography: the bright side of the force.

Kardiol Pol 2019 Jan 15. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Institute of Clinical Physiology, National Council Research, Pisa, Italy.

Stress echocardiography (SE) is based on the detection of regional wall motion abnormalities (RWMA) mirroring a physiologically critical epicardial artery stenosis determining subendocardial underperfusion. Recently the core protocol of SE was enriched by adding left ventricular contractile reserve (LVCR) based on Force. An altered Force can be due to microvascular and/or epicardial coronary artery disease, but also to myocardial scar, necrosis and/or sub-epicardial layer disease. Read More

Three-dimensional echocardiography in the assessment of ventricular function in children: pros, cons, and hopes.

Kardiol Pol 2019 21;77(1):12-17. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

Department of Pediatric Cardiology and General Pediatrics, Medical University of Warsaw, Poland.

The accurate assessment of ventricular function is crucial in paediatric cardiology because its results affect the diagnosis and clinical management. Children with cardiovascular problems require frequent evaluation of ventricular function parameters; therefore, three-dimensional echocardiography may be the perfect modality to address that issue and a valuable supplement to cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. In the present article we review the literature in search of strengths and limitations of quantitative three-dimensional echocardiography for its clinical use in paediatric cardiology. Read More

Clinical, respiratory, haemodynamic, and metabolic determinants of lactate in heart failure.

Kardiol Pol 2019 19;77(1):47-52. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Department of Heart Diseases, Wroclaw Medical University, Wroclaw, Poland, Poland; Department of Cardiology, Centre for Heart Diseases, 4th Military Hospital, Weigla 5, 50-981 Wroclaw, Poland.

Background: Lactate is an end-product of anaerobic cell metabolism. Although it is believed to have prognostic significance in heart failure (HF), data on the pathomechanisms that lead to lactate accumulation are scarce.

Aim: We aimed to determine the clinical, respiratory, biochemical, and haemodynamic correlates of lactate in HF. Read More
