AbstractAcute myocarditis (AM) is commonly found in everyday clinical practice. Differential diagnosis between various causes of myocardial damage with non-obstructive coronary arteries can be cumbersome for clinician. Moreover, AM may be provoked by a number of different causes and clinical presentation can be heterogeneous with potential overlap going from asymptomatic or subclinical to severe heart failure, arrhythmias, and death. Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) over the last decades has proven to be the diagnostic technique of choice since it allows identifying AM with excellent diagnostic accuracy. Latest technologic...

CONCLUSION: Women with STEMI are less likely to receive invasive management, revascularisation, or preventive medication at discharge. The reasons for these persistent differences in care require investigation. PMID: 30025513 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Women represent approximately half of heart failure hospitalizations and are disproportionately affected by heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). Women with signs and symptoms of ischemia, preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), and no obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) often have elevated left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP). However, isolated elevated LVEDP in the absence of coronary microvascular dysfunction (CMD) is not understood.

man Heart failure is a multifactorial clinical syndrome characterized by the inability of the heart to pump sufficient blood to the body. Despite recent advances in medical management, poor outcomes in patients with heart failure remain very high. This highlights a need for novel paradigms for effective, preventive and curative strategies. Substantial evidence supports the importance of endogenous melatonin in cardiovascular health and the benefits of melatonin supplementation in various cardiac pathologies and cardiometabolic disorders. Melatonin plays a crucial role in major pathological processes associated with hea...

Authors: Xu B, Kawata T, Daimon M, Kimura K, Nakao T, Lee SC, Hirokawa M, Yoshinaga A, Watanabe M, Yatomi Y, Komuro I Abstract The prognostic value of the right ventricular (RV) systolic to diastolic duration ratio (S/D ratio) in patients with advanced heart failure is not clear.We enrolled 45 patients with DCM (40 ± 13 years, 33 male) who were admitted to our hospital for evaluation or treatment of heart failure. The RV systolic and diastolic durations were measured using continuous Doppler imaging of tricuspid regurgitation, and the RV S/D ratio was calculated. Cardiac events were defined as cardiac death ...

ConclusionsCardiac and inflammatory biomarkers were differently modified by VAD implant in children compared to adults. These preliminary data could suggest that different molecular pathways may underlie HF patho-physiology of the two groups, possibly paving the way to a specific and targeted therapeutic intervention in the near future.Graphical abstract

MarksAbstractRegulation of intracellular calcium (Ca2+) is critical in all cell types. The ryanodine receptor (RyR), an intracellular Ca2+ release channel located on the sarco/endoplasmic reticulum (SR/ER), releases Ca2+ from intracellular stores to activate critical functions including muscle contraction and neurotransmitter release. Dysfunctional RyR-mediated Ca2+ handling has been implicated in the pathogenesis of inherited and non-inherited condit...
