The radial artery is becoming the vessel of choice for performing cardiac catheterization. Transradial catheterization can impose risks on the upper extremity, and hand surgeons should be aware of the most frequent complications. The purpose of this study was to determine the frequency, timing, and scope of upper-limb complications shortly after transradial catheterization.

Conclusions: Univariate Cox regression analysis did not prove T-cad to be an outcome predictor (HR = 1, p = 0.349). However, decreased T-cad levels in human myocardium can be an additional indicator of HF severity. T-cad in human myocardium has an anti-inflammatory role. More studies are needed to extend the role of T-cad in the outcome prediction of patients with NI-DCM. PMID: 31936691 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractPulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) related to left-to-right shunt can progress to Eisenmenger syndrome, a serious and fatal disease that is not yet curable. This pilot study considered stem cell injection as a new treatment modality in persistent pulmonary hypertension after the correction of a congenital heart defect. Three patients with persistent pulmonary hypertension after ventricular septal defect repair were included in this pilot study for a clinical trial. Mononuclear stem cells derived from patients ’ bone marrow specimens were injected into the right and left pulmonary arteries via cardiac cathe...

ConclusionThe incidence of CTEPH observed in this study 1  year after the first episode of acute PE was approximately 6.9%. This incidence seems to be high in our population, and diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for the early identification of CTEPH are needed.

ConclusionsClinicians may consider deferring immediate cardiac catheterization and attribute electrocardiogram changes to acute pancreatitis in patients presenting with angina pectoris and acute pancreatitis if confirmed by normal cardiac enzymes and elevated levels of lipase and amylase. However, when clinical signs and electrocardiogram findings are highly suggestive of myocardial ischemia/injury, immediate noninvasive coronary computed tomography angiography may be the best approach to make an early diagnosis.

AbstractPercutaneous pulmonary valve replacement (PPVI) in native or patched right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) has proven to be feasible. The procedure is highly dependent on the size of the RVOT. Several methods exist to evaluate the size of the RVOT by cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR). We evaluated different CMR modalities for measuring RVOT diameters. Thirty-one consecutive patients with native or patched RVOT were retrospectively evaluated. CMR was part of follow-up of patients with corrected Tetralogy of Fallot or pulmonary stenosis with significant pulmonary regurgitation (PR). CMR included 3D-SSFP whole-...

We report the case of a 35-year-old woman who presented with sudden unexpected cardiac arrest and was brought to the emergency ward. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation was started by ambulance paramedic. On arrival, the patient was transferred to the catheterization laboratory due to sudden aborted cardiac death. The angiography was performed and dissection of the left main coronary artery, extended to the left anterior descending artery was detected. Pathological study confirmed ECPA. It appears that young and healthy patients with a history of intermittent vasospastic angina should be evaluated for ECPA.
