The use of MitraClip in secondary mitral regurgitation and heart failure.

Cardiovasc Revasc Med 2020 May 19. Epub 2020 May 19.

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA.

Secondary (also known as functional) mitral regurgitation (MR) has increased substantially over the last several decades due to an increase in the prevalence of dilated cardiomyopathy (ischemic and non-ischemic). Mortality and morbidity in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy is much greater when associated with MR as compared to without MR. MR will result in further left ventricular (LV) volume overload, LV dilation, and pupillary muscle displacement resulting in deterioration of the severity of MR leading to a vicious cycle. Read More

Neutrophils Modulate Fibroblast Function and Promote Healing and Scar Formation after Murine Myocardial Infarction.

Int J Mol Sci 2020 May 23;21(10). Epub 2020 May 23.

Institute for Molecular Cardiovascular Research (IMCAR), RWTH Aachen University, 52074 Aachen, Germany.

Aim: Recruitment of neutrophils to the heart following acute myocardial infarction (MI) initiates inflammation and contributes to adverse post-infarct left ventricular (LV) remodeling. However, therapeutic inhibition of neutrophil recruitment into the infarct zone has not been beneficial in MI patients, suggesting a possible dual role for neutrophils in inflammation and repair following MI. Here, we investigate the effect of neutrophils on cardiac fibroblast function following MI. Read More

Organ Culture and Grafting of Choroid Plexus into the Ventricular CSF of Normal and Hydrocephalic HTx Rats.

J Neuropathol Exp Neurol 2020 Jun;79(6):626-640

Instituto de Anatomía, Histología y Patología.

Choroid plexus (CP) may aid brain development and repair by secreting growth factors and neurotrophins for CSF streaming to ventricular and subventricular zones. Disrupted ventricular/subventricular zone progenitors and stem cells lead to CNS maldevelopment. Exploring models, we organ cultured the CP and transplanted fresh CP into a lateral ventricle of postnatal hydrocephalic (hyHTx) and nonhydrocephalic (nHTx) rats. Read More

Ventricular Septal Defect Pulmonary Atresia: Provisional Bifurcation Strategy for Confluence Stenosis During Patent Ductus Arteriosis Stenting.

Can J Cardiol 2020 Mar 5. Epub 2020 Mar 5.

Department of Cardiology, Post Graduate Institute for Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh, India. Electronic address:

Neonates with pulmonary atresia survive only if duct patency is maintained before staged surgical repair. Ductal stenting is an effective alternative to conventional shunt surgery, as it avoids thoracotomy. With today's generation of coronary stents having better profile, flexibility, and trackability, it may be achieved safely, with less difficulty than previously described. Read More

Anomalous papillary muscles-Implications in the surgical treatment of hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy.

J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2020 Apr 15. Epub 2020 Apr 15.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn.

Objectives: To categorize and assess the functional significance of anomalous papillary muscles in patients undergoing surgical management of obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Methods: We reviewed the records of operations for obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and identified 73 patients with an anomalous papillary muscle. Anomalous papillary muscles inserting directly into the body of the anterior mitral valve leaflet were classified as type I, those with both direct insertion into the body of the leaflet and attachment to the free edge of the anterior leaflet were categorized as type II, and anomalous papillary muscles inserting into the free edge of the anterior leaflet were grouped as type III.

Long non-coding RNA LNC_000898 alleviates cardiomyocyte apoptosis and promotes cardiac repair after myocardial infarction via modulating miR-375/PDK1 axis.

J Cardiovasc Pharmacol 2020 Apr 16. Epub 2020 Apr 16.

Department of Cardiology, Putuo People's Hospital Affiliated to Tongji University, Shanghai, 200060, China.

Increasing evidence has confirmed that both long noncoding RNAs (LncRNAs) and microRNAs (miRNAs) exert key roles in the pathogenesis of myocardial infarction (MI). Previous microarray assay results revealed that lncRNA LNC_000898 expression was significantly downregulated in AMI. However, the specific function of LNC_000898 on MI is still unclear. Read More
