Guidelines for the delivery and monitoring of high intensity interval training in clinical populations.

Prog Cardiovasc Dis 2019 Jan 24. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

University of Queensland, School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

High intensity interval training (HIIT) is now recognized in international clinical-based exercise guidelines as an appropriate and beneficial adjunct to moderate intensity continuous training. HIIT involves alternating periods of high intensity aerobic exercise with light recovery exercise or no exercise, allowing for greater physiological stimulus and adaptation than moderate intensity continuous training (MICT) for cardiorespiratory fitness and other cardiometabolic processes. However, there is no universal criteria or framework for the prescription and monitoring of HIIT in clinical populations, and safety concerns remain a common barrier for implementing HIIT as standard care.

Precision medicine and healthy living: The importance of the built environment.

Prog Cardiovasc Dis 2019 Jan - Feb;62(1):34-38. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

School of Health Sciences, College of Health and Medicine, University of Tasmania, TAS, Australia.

The built environment encompasses the major physical spaces, including buildings, streets, homes, schools, parks, playgrounds and other infrastructure in which we live, work and play. In an ideal world, the built environment should support and facilitate a healthy engagement in physical activity across the lifespan. However, in the context of an environment characterized by increased mechanization and urbanization, physical inactivity and higher levels of overweight and obesity, too many settings are not conducive to physical activity and/or are not safe and walkable.

Precision Measurements to Assess Baseline Status and Efficacy of Healthy Living Medicine.

Prog Cardiovasc Dis 2019 Jan - Feb;62(1):55-59. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Department of Physical Therapy, College of Applied Health Sciences, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL, United States of America; Integrative Physiology Laboratory, College of Applied Health Sciences, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL, United States of America. Electronic address:

Precision medicine recently has gained popularity, calling for more individualized approaches to prevent and/or reduce chronic-disease risk and to reduce non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular disease (CVD). Encompassed under Precision medicine initiatives is the concept of healthy living medicine (HLM), which emphasizes the promotion of lifestyle and behavioral practices including physical activity and healthy dietary pattern. Precision measurements have the potential to improve the understanding of how risk factors influence disease trajectory, and further inform on how to precisely tailor clinical strategies to manage risk factors to prevent disease manifestation, and refine therapies according the patient's demographic, environment, and disease etiology.

Addressing the Nutritional Phenotype Through Personalized Nutrition for Chronic Disease Prevention and Management.

Prog Cardiovasc Dis 2019 Jan - Feb;62(1):9-14. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Internal Medicine-Obesity Medicine, Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System, Palo Alto, CA, USA; Internal Medicine-Primary Care, San Mateo County Health System, San Mateo, CA, USA.

The primary focus of public health recommendations related to the prevention of food-related chronic disease has been on the adoption of healthy dietary patterns; however, implementation has been challenging. There has been increasing recognition that an individual's diet and environment may impact disease susceptibility by affecting the expression of genes involved in critical metabolic pathways. Precision nutrition (PN) has emerged to translate discoveries about diversity in nutrient metabolism between subgroups and the inter-individual variability in the responses to dietary interventions.

Precision in Promoting Physical Activity and Exercise With the Overarching Goal of Moving More.

Prog Cardiovasc Dis 2019 Jan - Feb;62(1):3-8. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Department of Physical Therapy, College of Applied Health Sciences, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA.

Physical inactivity is strongly associated with an unfavorable health profile, increasing an individual's risk for developing cardiovascular disease. Initiating a regular exercise routine contributes to improvements in cardiorespiratory fitness, body composition, resting blood pressure, blood glucose, and circulating lipoproteins. However, the extent to which positive changes occur come with significant inter-individual variability within intervention groups; non-responders and responders have been commonly identified across populations, highlighting that not all exercise regimens are universally effective in all individuals and should therefore not be treated as a "one-size fits all" prescription.

Division of Cardiology, University of California San Diego, San Diego, CA, United States of America. Electronic address:

Interventional echocardiography is an emerging field with growing interest and applications as therapeutic procedures to address structural heart disease (SHD) continue to evolve and expand. As opposed to coronary interventions, in which the course of catheter movement is constrained within the artery, percutaneous procedures for SHD entail free catheter movement within the heart and great vessels. Imaging guidance in 3-dimensional space is therefore of critical importance to the successful performance of these procedures. Read More

Doppler-Echocardiographic Assessment of Tricuspid Regurgitation.

Prog Cardiovasc Dis 2018 Nov - Dec;61(5-6):397-403. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

The Division of Cardiology, Mayo College of Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, United States of America.

Compared with the vast literature concerning the echocardiographic assessment of mitral, or aortic disease, the data concerning the evaluation of tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is very limited. In this review we summarized the present data concerning the assessment of TR. We review the present knowledge concerning the pathogenesis of TR showing that it is extremely multi-factorial, thus, when assessing patients with TR by echocardiography it is imperative to focus on four major aspects: evaluation of severity of TR, assessment of the etiology of TR, evaluation of the mechanism of TR and suitability for surgical or per-cutaneous repair.

An Update on the Role of Cardiorespiratory Fitness, Structured Exercise and Lifestyle Physical Activity in Preventing Cardiovascular Disease and Health Risk.

Prog Cardiovasc Dis 2018 Nov - Dec;61(5-6):484-490. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Department of Exercise Science, Arnold School of Public Health, University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC, USA.

The cardiovascular disease (CVD) pandemic has placed considerable strain on healthcare systems, quality of life, and physical function, while remaining the leading cause of death globally. Decades of scientific investigations have fortified the protective effects of cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF), exercise training, and physical activity (PA) against the development of CVD. This review will summarize recent efforts that have made significant strides in; 1) the application of novel analytic techniques to increase the predictive utility of CRF; 2) understanding the protective effects of long-term compliance to PA recommendations through large cohort studies with multiple points of assessment; 3) and understanding the potential harms associated with extreme volumes of PA.

The Bicuspid Aortic Valve Condition: The Critical Role of Echocardiography and the Case for a Standard Nomenclature Consensus.

Prog Cardiovasc Dis 2018 Nov - Dec;61(5-6):404-415. Epub 2018 Nov 6.

Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.

The bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) condition is characterized by prominent heterogeneity of its valvular phenotypic expression, of its associated disorders, its complications and its prognosis. Echocardiography serves as the first-line imaging modality in 5 major capacities: (1) BAV diagnosis, (2) valvular phenotyping, (3) assessment of valvular function, (4) measurement of the thoracic aorta and exclusion of aortic coarctation, and (5) assessment of uncommon but serious complications such as infective endocarditis and aortic dissection. This article presents a nosological perspective on the BAV condition, discusses the critical role of echocardiography as it relates to these 5 aforementioned capacities; and makes the case for a unified standard nomenclature for the BAV condition.

Prog Cardiovasc Dis 2018 Sep - Oct;61(3-4):365-376. Epub 2018 Sep 17.

Children's Hospital at Montefiore, Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, NY. Electronic address:

In 1971, Fontan and Baudet described a surgical technique for successful palliation of patients with tricuspid atresia. Subsequently, this technique has been applied to treat most forms of functional single ventricles and has become the current standard of care for long-term palliation of all patients with single ventricle congenital heart disease. Since 1971, the Fontan procedure has undergone several variations. Read More

Transcatheter Valve Replacement for Right-sided Valve Disease in Congenital Heart Patients.

Prog Cardiovasc Dis 2018 Sep - Oct;61(3-4):347-359. Epub 2018 Sep 17.

Division of Pediatric Cardiology, Department of Pediatrics, Duke University, Durham, NC; Address reprint requests to: Gregory A. Fleming, MD, Duke University Hospital, Division of Pediatric Cardiology, 2301 Erwin Rd, Box 3090, Durham, NC 27710. Electronic address:

Pulmonary and/or tricuspid valve dysfunction is common among individuals with congenital heart disease, and surgical intervention often carries prohibitive risks. Transcatheter valve replacement (TVR) of the right-sided cardiac valves has become a viable treatment option over the past two decades, while continued technological development aims to broaden its applicability to an even larger portion of those with repaired congenital heart disease. To date, two transcatheter valves have been approved for use in patients with dysfunctional right ventricular to pulmonary artery conduits as well as those with failing pulmonic bioprosthetic valves, and are also used off-label in the "native" RVOT and within surgically repaired/replaced but failing tricuspid valves.

When Should Adult Congenital Heart Disease Patients be Considered for Transplant and Deciding Which Organs to Transplant.

Prog Cardiovasc Dis 2018 Sep - Oct;61(3-4):377-381. Epub 2018 Sep 15.

Columbia University Medical Center, Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiology, Schneeweiss Adult Congenital Heart Center, United States of America.

The number of adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) patients continues to increase. Because of multiple related factors such as aging, residual cardiac lesions and prior palliative procedures, advanced heart failure (HF) is increasingly prevalent in this population. Consequently, there is an emerging need to determine which patients are best suited for advanced cardiac therapies, including heart transplantation (HT) and mechanical circulatory support. Read More

Meta-analysis of Exercise Training on Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction in Heart Failure with Reduced Ejection Fraction: A 10-year Update.

Prog Cardiovasc Dis 2018 Sep 15. Epub 2018 Sep 15.

College of Nursing and Health Innovation, University of Texas at Arlington, Arlington, TX, USA. Electronic address:

Background: The role of exercise training modality to attenuate left ventricular (LV) remodeling in heart failure patients with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) remains uncertain. The authors performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of published reports on exercise training (moderate-intensity continuous aerobic, high-intensity interval aerobic, and resistance exercise) and LV remodeling in clinically stable HFrEF patients.

Methods: We searched MEDLINE, Cochrane Central Registry of Controlled Trials, CINAHL, and PubMed (2007 to 2017) for randomized controlled trials of exercise training on resting LV ejection fraction (EF) and end-diastolic and end-systolic volumes in HFrEF patients. Read More

Neurocognitive Impairment and Its Long-term Impact on Adults With Congenital Heart Disease.

Prog Cardiovasc Dis 2018 Sep - Oct;61(3-4):287-293. Epub 2018 Aug 15.

Department of Medicine, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI, United States of America; Department of Pediatrics, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI, United States of America.

It is well-recognized now that adult survivors with congenital heart disease (ACHD) are at risk for non-cardiac co-morbidities and complications that can impact symptoms and clinical outcomes. Cognitive dysfunction, in particular, is common in this population, but likely an under-recognized and undertreated cause for long-term morbidity. Abnormal cognitive function has a major impact on all aspects of quality of life, including employment opportunities, educational attainment, and the ability to maintain meaningful social relationships, such as marriage.

Management of Heart Failure in Adult Congenital Heart Disease.

Prog Cardiovasc Dis 2018 Sep - Oct;61(3-4):308-313. Epub 2018 Aug 11.

Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program, Lillie Frank Abercrombie Section of Cardiology, Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital, Houston, TX, United States of America.

Heart failure (HF) in the adult with congenital heart disease (ACHD) is associated with high morbidity and mortality and has been implicated as the leading cause of death in this patient population. The diagnosis of HF in ACHD involves a combination of clinical suspicion from subjective patient history, anatomic imaging, functional diagnostic studies, and rhythm evaluation. Once diagnosed, the approach to management of HF in this population varies widely and by lesion. Read More

Precise Therapy for Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm in Marfan Syndrome: A Puzzle Nearing Its Solution.

Prog Cardiovasc Dis 2018 Sep - Oct;61(3-4):328-335. Epub 2018 Jul 21.

Unit of Vascular Biology and Regenerative Medicine, Centro Cardiologico Monzino IRCCS, Milano, Italy; Dipartimento di Scienze Cliniche e di Comunità, Università degli Studi di Milano, Milano, Italy; Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Centro Cardiologico Monzino IRCCS, Milano, Italy.

Marfan Syndrome (MFS) is a rare connective tissue disorder, resulting from mutations in the fibrillin-1 gene, characterized by pathologic phenotypes in multiple organs, the most detrimental of which affects the thoracic aorta. Indeed, thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAA), leading to acute dissection and rupture, are today the major cause of morbidity and mortality in adult MFS patients. Therefore, there is a compelling need for novel therapeutic strategies to delay TAA progression and counteract aortic dissection occurrence. Read More
