Imaging and histology in the diagnosis of multiple papillary fibroelastomas in a patient with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. Case report.

Imaging and histology in the diagnosis of multiple papillary fibroelastomas in a patient with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. Case report. Med Ultrason. 2017 Nov 29;19(4):454-456 Authors: Ionescu AA, Radulescu B, Herlea V, Miclea I, Parepa I, Bubenek S, Popescu BA, Ginghina C, Jurcut R Abstract Papillary fibroelastomas (PFEs) are one of the most frequent primary cardiac tumors and occur more often in patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM). PFEs have been linked to an increased risk of neurological events. We report a case of a 59-year-old woman with HOCM in whom echocardiography (transthoracic and transesophageal, using 2D and 3D techniques) revealed multiple masses in various locations in the left cardiac chambers. Surgical excision of the cardiac tumors and aortic valve replacement was performed and the pathologic report confirmed the diagnosis of PFEs. Patient followup using ultrasonography is crucial since recurrence is a possibility. Current cardiac ultrasound techniques are essential for diagnosing and for guiding the management of these conditions. PMID: 29197925 [PubMed - in process]

Jeffery, Weibo Cai, Xudong WangAbstractImplantable nanogenerator (i-NG) has shown great promises for enabling self-powered implantable medical devices (IMDs). One essential requirement for practical i-NG applications is its long-term bio-compatibility and bio-safety. This paper presents a systematic study of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) and PDMS/Parylene-C packaged polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) NGs implanted inside female ICR (Institute of Cancer Research) mice for up to six months. The PVDF NG had a st...

Authors: Ryu S, Chang Y, Kim YS, Kim HJ Abstract OBJECTIVES: We aimed to examine the relationship between sitting time and the development of ultrasonography-diagnosed gallstone disease (GSD) in young and middle-aged Korean men and women. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We conducted a cohort study of 147,237 participants without GSD at baseline who underwent a health checkup examination between 2011 and 2015 and were followed annually or biennially until December 2016. Sitting time and physical activity were measured using the validated Korean version of the international physical activity questionnaire short form. GSD w...

This study investigated the usefulness and accuracy of 3-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography tricuspid area compared with conventional 2-dimensional diameter (2DD) for assessing significant tricuspid annulus dilatation, providing cutoff values that could be used in clinical practice to improve patient selection for surgery.MethodsWe prospectively included 109 patients with rheumatic heart disease in the absence of previous valve replacement. Tricuspid regurgitation was divided into 3 groups: mild, moderate, and severe. Optimal 3-dimensional area (3DA) and 2DD cutoff points for identification of significant tricuspid...

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common primary cardiac muscle disorder.It is one of the  extensively studied medical  entity in terms of pathology, genetics, electrophysiology and treatment.Though it has dramatic myocardial  phenotypic expression , longevity  can be near normal  except in a minority who are prone for LV dysfunction and SCD due to the indirect electrical instability.These arrhythmia arise due to myocardial disarray , micro vascular disease or fibrosis. NSVT  by definition is runs of VT at a rate of> 100 /mt occurring less than 30 seconds. How common is NSVT in ...
