Phrenic nerve stimulation in patients with central sleep apnoea. A single-centre experience from the Pilot and Pivotal trials.

Kardiol Pol 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Centre for Heart Diseases, 4th Military Hospital, Wroclaw, Poland.

Background: Patients with central sleep apnoea (CSA) have recently been shown to have improved sleep metrics and quality of life (QoL) with phrenic nerve stimulation (PNS).

Aim: The aim of this analysis is to describe one clinical centre's partnership between cardiology, sleep medicine, and electrophysiology as well as the enrolment, implantation, and follow-up experience demonstrating both the safety and efficacy of PNS.

Methods: This analysis included data from the Pilot and Pivotal trials investigating the effect of PNS using an implantable transvenous system in patients with CSA. Read More

Adenosine intracoronary bolus dose escalation versus intravenous infusion to induce maximum coronary hyperemia for fractional flow reserve assessment.

Kardiol Pol 2019 Apr 3. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

Institute of Cardiology, Jagiellonian University Medical College, Krakow, Poland.

Background: Achievement of maximal hyperemia is mandatory for an accurate calculation of fractional flow reserve (FFR) and it is obtained with adenosine given either as an intravenous infusion or as an intracoronary bolus.

Aims: The purpose of this study was to compare the infusion of adenosine with intracoronary adenosine bolus dose escalation in the optimal assessment of peak FFR.

Methods: We enrolled consecutive patients with borderline coronary lesions that were assessed by FFR with the use of adenosine intracoronary boluses (100, 200, 400 and 600 µg) and intravenous infusion of 140 µg/kg/min and 280 µg/kg/min. Read More

The role of long-term mechanical circulatory support in the treatment of end-stage heart failure.

Kardiol Pol 2019 ;77(3):331-340

Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, Heart and Diabetes Centre North Rhine-Westphalia, Ruhr University Bochum, Bochum, Germany.

Heart failure is a clinical syndrome of multifactorial aetiology with typical symptoms and diverse prevalence depending on the world region, reaching more than 10% in the population over 70 years of age. The prognosis, in spite of a dynamic improve- ment in medical therapy, remains poor. The only treatment for these patients is heart transplantation, however, its availability is highly limited because of the shortage of donor organs. Read More

Additional value of the coronary artery calcium score in patients for whom myocardial perfusion imaging is challenging.

Kardiol Pol 2019 Mar 5. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

Department of Nuclear Medicine, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, Palacky University Olomouc and University Hospital Olomouc, I. P. Pavlova 6, 77900 Olomouc, Czech Republic.

Background: Determining a prognosis based on ischemia detection, using myocardial perfusion imaging by single photon emission computed tomography (MPI-SPECT), can be challenging in patients with multiple affected coronary arteries.

Aim: To examine the outcomes of MPI-SPECT combined with the coronary artery calcium score (CACS) to identify predictors of adverse cardiac events (CEs) in a group of patients for whom ischemia detection may be difficult using MPI-SPECT.

Methods: The study group included 195 patients who had a history of chronic kidney disease, suspicious ischemic cardiomyopathy, or individuals with left bundle branch block. Read More

Keele Cardiovascular Research Group, Centre for Prognosis Research, Institute of Primary Care and Health Sciences, Keele University, United Kingdom.

Heart failure (HF) is a leading cause of hospitalisation and death among older adults in high-income countries. HF is often accompanied by comorbid conditions, and patients hospitalised for HF commonly die or are readmitted in the weeks follow- ing hospital discharge. The objectives of this paper are to discuss the burden of HF hospitalisations in healthcare systems and to review strategies that reduce hospitalisations and death in this condition. Read More

Landmark studies in coronary heart disease epidemiology. The Framingham Heart Study after 70 years and the Seven Countries Study after 60 years.

Kardiol Pol 2019 ;77(2):173-180

Institute of Food and Nutrition, Warsaw, Poland.

This year we celebrate anniversaries of two prospective studies that have contributed most to our understanding of the epi-demiology of coronary heart disease (CHD): the Framingham Heart Study (FHS) and the Seven Countries Study (SCS). The FHS was initiated 70 years ago and is continued in the subsequent generations using new research opportunities, including evaluation of the risk factors for chronic non-cardiovascular diseases. The SCS is now finished because the original study population are mostly deceased, and the study did not continue in the children and grandchildren of the participants. Read More

Experts of the Heart Rhythm Section of the Polish Cardiac Society: opinion on the use of wearable cardioverter-defibrillators in Poland.

Kardiol Pol 2019 ;77(2):238-243

Department of Cardiology, SMDZ in Zabrze, Medical University of Silesia, Katowice, Poland.

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is one of the main causes of mortality in developed countries. Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) have become a widely used and efficient method for SCD prevention in high-risk populations. Nevertheless, there are clinical situations in which the benefit of ICD is uncertain, such as: early postinfarction left ventricular dysfunction, reversible causes of cardiomyopathy, presence of temporary or permanent ICD contraindications in high-risk populations, or when ICD is not accepted by SCD prevention candidates.

Non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) in the treatment of coronary and peripheral atherosclerosis. Expert Consensus.

Kardiol Pol 2019 Feb 25. Epub 2019 Feb 25.

Department of Cardiology and Structural Heart Diseases, Medical University of Silesia in Katowice, Katowice, Poland.

Oral anticoagulants (OAC) are widely used for prevention of systemic thromboembolism, including the reduction of the risk of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and prosthetic heart valves. There is also an increasing population of patients who require not only OACs, but also double antiplatelet therapy (DAPT). A typical example is a patient with AF and stable coronary artery disease or acute coronary syndrome (ACS), treated by percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Read More

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

Kardiol Pol 2019 14;77(3):355-362. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Heart Diseases, Wroclaw Medical University, Wroclaw, 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 based on studies with a single measurement of this marker.

Aim: We aimed to investigate whether persistent elevation of lactate during hospitalisation is related to a higher risk of ad- verse 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 11;77(3):347-354. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

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

Background: We believe that there is a physiological link between intracellular iron status (assessed by soluble transferrin receptor [sTfR]) 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 levels of lactate (> 2 mmol/L) accompanied by unmet cellular iron requirements (defined as sTfR > 1.59 mg/L) identify AHF patients with an unfavourable outcome. Read More

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

Kardiol Pol 2019 24;77(2):217-224. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

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

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

Aim: We aimed to assess the variability in gelatinase expression in the walls of aortocoronary conduits and to evaluate its impact on coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) outcomes.

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