Hemodynamic Support Using Percutaneous Transfemoral Impella 5.0 and Impella RP for Refractory Cardiogenic Shock.

Case Rep Cardiol 2019 23;2019:4591250. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Beaumont Health System, Royal Oak, MI, USA.

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) resulting in cardiogenic shock continues to be a substantial source of morbidity and mortality despite advances in recognition and treatment. Prior to the advent of percutaneous and more durable left ventricular support devices, prompt revascularization with the addition of vasopressors and inotropes were the standard of care in the management of this critical population. Recent published studies have shown that in addition to prompt revascularization, unloading of the left ventricle with the placement of the Impella percutaneous axillary flow pump can lead to improvement in mortality.

Why do we break one of the first rules of anatomy when describing the components of the heart?

Clin Anat 2019 Feb 20. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Institute of Genetic Medicine, Newcastle University, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, United Kingdom.

A rule of human anatomy is that all structures within the body should be described relative to the so-called "anatomical position." Along with those describing structures such as the skull and liver, those accounting for the components of the heart consistently break this rule, describing the organ as if removed from the body and positioned on its apex, the so-called "Valentine position." Although potentially appropriate to some animal species, this approach produces problems when used in human anatomy, even if the right and left ventricles are only viewed in truly right-sided and left-sided positions when assessed in the Valentine fashion.

Pulmonary Vascular Mechanical Consequences of Ischemic Heart Failure and Implications for Right Ventricular Function.

Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Motivation: Left heart failure (LHF) is the most common cause of pulmonary hypertension, which confers an increase in morbidity and mortality in this context. Pulmonary vascular resistance has prognostic value in LHF but otherwise the mechanical consequences of LHF for the pulmonary vasculature and right ventricle remain unknown. We sought to investigate mechanical mechanisms of pulmonary vascular and right ventricular dysfunction in a rodent model of LHF to address the knowledge gaps in understanding disease pathophysiology.

Background: Renal dysfunction is an important predictor of poor outcomes in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). Right ventricular (RV) dysfunction is implicated as one of the explanations for worsening renal function in cardiorenal syndrome. Novel right heart catheterization (RHC) parameters such as pulmonary artery pulsatility index (PAPi) and right atrial to pulmonary capillary wedge pressure ratio (RA:PCWP) have been found as predictors of RV dysfunction.

Successful Percutaneous Closure of Traumatic Right Ventricular Free Wall Rupture Using Amplatzer Vascular Plug Devices.

J Atr Fibrillation 2018 Aug 31;11(2):2095. Epub 2018 Aug 31.

Cardiovascular Research Institute, University of Kansas Hospital and Medical Center, Kansas City, KS.

Ventricular free wall rupture (VFWR) is a rare entity and is mostly related to post myocardial infarction (MI) complications usually involving left ventricle. In traumatic chest injuries, the right ventricle (RV) is more commonly involved due to its anatomic and structural vulnerability, as in our case. Survival, although rare, has almost always been secondary to urgent surgical repair, which is the current standard of care for such cases. Read More

In inferior myocardial infarction, neither ST elevation in lead V1 nor ST depression in lead I are reliable findings for the diagnosis of right ventricular infarction.

J Electrocardiol 2018 Nov - Dec;51(6):977-980. Epub 2018 Aug 10.

Hennepin County Medical Center, University of Minnesota School of Medicine., United States. Electronic address:

Objective: In the presence of inferior myocardial infarction (MI), ST depression (STD) in lead I has been claimed to be accurate for diagnosis of right ventricular (RV) MI. We sought to evaluate this claim and also whether ST Elevation (STE) in lead V1 would be helpful, with or without STD in V2.

Methods: Retrospective study of consecutive inferior STEMI, comparing ECGs of patients with, to those without, RVMI, as determined by angiographic coronary occlusion proximal to the RV marginal branch. Read More

Fetal stroke and cerebrovascular disease: Advances in understanding from lenticulostriate and venous imaging, alloimmune thrombocytopaenia and monochorionic twins.

Eur J Paediatr Neurol 2018 Nov 11;22(6):989-1005. Epub 2018 Sep 11.

Departments of Child Health, Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Radiology, University Hospital Southampton, United Kingdom; Clinical and Experimental Sciences, University of Southampton, United Kingdom.

Fetal stroke is an important cause of cerebral palsy but is difficult to diagnose unless imaging is undertaken in pregnancies at risk because of known maternal or fetal disorders. Fetal ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging may show haemorrhage or ischaemic lesions including multicystic encephalomalacia and focal porencephaly. Serial imaging has shown the development of malformations including schizencephaly and polymicrogyra after ischaemic and haemorrhagic stroke. Read More

Tissue-based markers of right ventricular dysfunction in ischemic mitral regurgitation assessed via stress cardiac magnetic resonance and three-dimensional echocardiography.

Int J Cardiovasc Imaging 2018 Nov 20. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

Greenberg Cardiology Division, Department of Medicine, Weill Cornell Medical College, 525 East 68th Street, New York, NY, 10021, USA.

Ischemic mitral regurgitation (iMR) augments risk for right ventricular dysfunction (RV). Right and left ventricular (LV) function are linked via common coronary perfusion, but data is lacking regarding impact of LV ischemia and infarct transmurality-as well as altered preload and afterload-on RV performance. In this prospective multimodality imaging study, stress CMR and 3-dimensional echo (3D-echo) were performed concomitantly in patients with iMR. Read More

Characterization of 3-dimensional papillary muscle displacement in in vivo ovine models of ischemic/functional mitral regurgitation.

J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2018 Oct 10. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, Calif. Electronic address:

Objective: Papillary muscle (PM) displacement contributes to ischemic/functional mitral regurgitation (IMR/FMR). The displaced PMs pull the mitral leaflets into the left ventricle (ie, toward the apex) thus hampering leaflet coaptation. Intuitively apical leaflet tethering results from apical PM displacement.

Division of Cardiac Surgery, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York. Electronic address:

Background: Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) therapy has been the standard of care for selected patients with advance heart failure. Even though considerable strides have been achieved with the introduction of the newest centrifugal pump, therapy is still burdened with significant perioperative complications. Smaller devices, along with improved techniques and instruments, have encouraged the adoption of minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS) techniques for LVAD implantation to improve perioperative outcomes.

Myocardial perfusion imaging detects mechanical dyssynchrony in left ventricular infarcted and noninfarcted areas early after acute myocardial infarction in a porcine model.

Nucl Med Commun 2019 Feb;40(2):115-123

Departments of Nuclear Medicine.

Background: Left ventricular mechanical dyssynchrony (LVMD) is closely associated with left ventricular dysfunction and poor prognosis in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). However, whether mechanical dyssynchrony is present in the noninfarcted areas remains controversial. This research aimed to quantitatively evaluate the global and regional mechanical dyssynchrony early after AMI by phase analysis of single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) gated myocardial perfusion imaging (GMPI) and to further explore the related influencing factors.

Unsolved Questions on the Anatomy of the Ventricular Conduction System.

Korean Circ J 2018 Dec;48(12):1081-1096

Division of Cardiology, Department of Internal Medicine, Seoul National University Hospital, Seoul, Korea.

We reviewed the anatomical characteristics of the conduction system in the ventricles of human and ungulate hearts and then raised some questions to be answered by clinical and anatomical studies in the future. The ventricular conduction system is a 3-dimensional structure as compared to the 2-dimensional character of the atrial conduction system. The proximal part consisting of the atrioventricular node, the bundle of His and fascicles are groups of conducting cells surrounded by fibrous connective tissue so as to insulate from the underlying myocardium.

Long-term performance of right ventricular pacing leads: risk factors associated with permanent right ventricular pacing threshold increase.

J Interv Card Electrophysiol 2018 Nov 6. Epub 2018 Nov 6.

Section of Electrophysiology, Division of Cardiology, Beijing Friendship Hospital Affiliated to Capital Medical University, No. 95 Yongan Road, Xi-cheng District, Beijing, 100050, China.

Purpose: Right ventricular pacing threshold (RVPT) may rise over time accompanied by the increased use of implantable cardiac pacemakers. However, risk factors for permanent RVPT increase are not fully clarified in patients without definite lead fracture and dislodgment. We aimed to evaluate the long-term performance of RV pacing leads and identify risk factors associated with the occurrence of permanent RVPT increase in this population. Read More
