Multimodality imaging in ischaemic heart failure.

Lancet 2019 Mar;393(10175):1056-1070

Department of Cardiology, Leiden University Medical Center, Leiden, Netherlands.

In heart failure, extensive evaluation with modern non-invasive imaging modalities is needed to assess causes, pathophysiology, and haemodynamics, to determine prognosis and consider therapeutic options. This systematic evaluation includes a stepwise assessment of left ventricular size and function, the presence and severity of coronary artery disease, mitral regurgitation, pulmonary hypertension, right ventricular dilation and dysfunction, and tricuspid regurgitation. Based on this imaging-derived information, the need for specific therapies besides optimised medical therapy can be determined. Read More

Echocardiography and monitoring patients receiving dopamine agonist therapy for hyperprolactinaemia: A joint position statement of the British Society of Echocardiography, the British Heart Valve Society and the Society for Endocrinology.

Clin Endocrinol (Oxf) 2019 Feb 28. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Department of Endocrinology, Bartholomew's Hospital, London, UK.

This is a joint position statement of the British Society of Echocardiography, the British Heart Valve Society and the Society for Endocrinology on the role of echocardiography in monitoring patients receiving dopamine agonist (DA) therapy for hyperprolactinaemia. Evidence that DA pharmacotherapy causes abnormal valve morphology and dysfunction at doses used in the management of hyperprolactinaemia is extremely limited. Evidence of clinically significant valve pathology is absent, except for isolated case reports around which questions remain. Read More

The role of surgical transcatheter valve implantation for the treatment of severe mitral annular calcification.

J Card Surg 2019 Feb 25. Epub 2019 Feb 25.

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast, United Kingdom.

With a rise in the aging population, mitral annular calcification is increasingly encountered with an incidence of 10% in over 70 years old. This with increasing patient comorbidities presents a technical challenge due to the risk of atrioventricular disruption which is associated with high operative mortality of up to 75%. We describe two cases of severe mitral disease with marked annular calcification successfully treated with a balloon expandable transcatheter valve which was deployed on cardiopulmonary bypass via a trans-atrial approach.

Successful Transition from Phosphodiesterase-5 Inhibitors to Riociguat Without a Washout Period in Patients With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension and Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension: A Pilot Cohort Study.

Heart Lung Circ 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Okayama University Graduate School of Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Okayama, Japan.

Background: Transition to pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH)-specific drugs is considered in patients with PAH and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension who do not respond to combination therapy or who experience side effects to the combination drugs. Riociguat directly stimulates soluble guanylate cyclase independently of nitric oxide. Therefore, transition from a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor (PDE5i), which requires nitric oxide to exert its effects, to riociguat might be effective. Read More
