Authors: Yasuda S, Fukata M, Yokoyama T, Arita T, Odashiro K, Maruyama T, Hiramoto Y, Akashi K Abstract A 58-year-old woman complained of general fatigue and was diagnosed with sick sinus syndrome (SSS) by ambulatory electrocardiogram, which demonstrated sinus arrest at midnight and paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) at nighttime. Since her plasma cholinesterase (ChE) activity had been persistently zero, she was diagnosed with ChE deficiency. She refused permanent pacemaker implantation, and treatment with positive chronotropic drugs is ongoing. A novel association of ChE deficiency with SSS is theoretically possi...

Conclusions Need Scrutiny.I wanted to put it out there on its own:These are diagnostic hyperacute T-waves.You can see the computer interpretation above.This patient had an acute LAD occlusion and was sent to the cath lab immediately by an Emergency Physician trained at Hennepin who had no doubt about the diagnosis.

AbstractThe subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) may provide comparable protection while avoiding the disadvantage of transvenous lead, but the abnormal features of the hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) electrocardiogram (ECG) make it a challenge for S-ICD template screening. We aimed to investigate S-ICD eligibility according to the S-ICD manufacturer ’s surface ECG screening template in China, and further analyze its corresponding ineligible predicting factors in 12-lead suface ECG. A total of 179 HCM patients (114 males; mean age: 45 ± 14 years) underwent S-ICD scre...

AbstractIntroductionThe purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of buprenorphine/naloxone sublingual tablets for the treatment of opioid dependence in Chinese adults.MethodsThis multicenter, double ‐blind, placebo‐controlled study included four periods: induction (3‐5 days), stabilization (7‐21 days), randomization/treatment (6 weeks), and postmedication follow‐up (1 week). A total of 442 participants with opioid dependence were enrolled; 260 were randomized to buprenorphine/nalo xone or placebo. The primary outcome was retention in treatment, defined as the time from rando...

AbstractAimTo evaluate Corrected QT (QTc) interval prolongation (QTcP) in pediatric patients treated with voriconazole and identify its associated risk factors in this setting.MethodsClinical, voriconazole ‐related, and corrected QT interval (QTc) data were collected retrospectively from the electronic medical records of voriconazole‐treated pediatric patients attending a large tertiary medical center in 2011‐2016 who underwent electrocardiography before and during therapy. Paired comparison of QTc intervals before and during voriconazole treatment was performed, adjusted for concurrent medications, electrolyte distu...

ConclusionMultitasking T1 mapping can quantify native T1 and ECV in the myocardium with free ‐breathing, non‐ECG, continuous scans with good image quality and good repeatability in vivo in healthy subjects, and correlation with MOLLI T1 and ECV in acute myocardial infarction patients.

The pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying the J wave syndromes (JWS), including the Brugada (BrS) and early repolarization syndromes (ERS), remain a matter of debate. At the heart of the controversy is the question of whether the electrocardiographic (ECG) phenotypes and arrhythmogenic substrates are due principally to abnormal depolarization, repolarization, or both.

AbstractHypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common hereditary cardiomyopathy characterized by left ventricular hypertrophy and spectrum of clinical manifestation. Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common sustained arrhythmia in HCM patients and is primarily related to left atrial dilatation and remodeling. There are several clinical, electrocardiographic (ECG), and echocardiographic (ECHO) features that have been associated with development of AF in HCM patients; strongest predictors are left atrial size, age, and heart failure class. AF can lead to progressive functional decline, worsening heart failure and increase...
