Cardiac aneurysms are uncommon, encompass a wide variety of pathologies, and can occur in several locations in the heart. Cardiac aneurysms are of varying clinical concern, with some warranting prompt attention and many others with no clinical significance. Cardiac aneurysms may be identified on electrocardiogram-gated CT or MRI and incidentally on nongated imaging examinations. As CT and MRI are requested increasingly to evaluate anatomic cardiac pathology, radiologists should become familiar with the imaging appearances, clinical significance, and management options of cardiac aneurysms.

Authors: Kawabata M, Goya M, Takahashi Y, Maeda S, Yagishita A, Shirai Y, Kaneko M, Shiohira S, Hirao K Abstract In patients requiring an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), the combined use of a prior pacemaker and a subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD) could be an alternative treatment option to implantation of new leads or upgrading of pacemakers to an ICD if vascular access is limited. Here, we assessed the prevalence of S-ICD's eligibility according to surface electrogram screening in those receiving cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). S-ICD's eligibility was assessed in patients with a CRT pacemaker or a C...

Authors: Yoshida S, Fukushima S, Miyagawa S, Yoshikawa Y, Hata H, Saito S, Saito T, Domae K, Kashiyama N, Matsuura R, Toda K, Sawa Y Abstract The degree or nature of functional mitral regurgitation (MR) is not necessarily correlated with the size or function of the left ventricle (LV). We hypothesized that the anatomical structure of the mitral valve (MV) complex might play a role in functional MR in ischemic or nonischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM).The structure of the LV and MV complex in DCM patients (n = 29) was assessed using electrocardiogram-gated 320-slice computed tomography and was compared with that i...

ConclusionsIn our diLQTc patients, QTc duration did not predict occurrence of symptoms, or arrhythmic events. Thus, other determinants should be postulated to clarify why sometimes diQTc prolongation propitiates ventricular malignant arrhythmias whereas in other cases this arrhythmogenic effect is lacking.

Chun Interest in research involving health-medical information analysis based on artificial intelligence, especially for deep learning techniques, has recently been increasing. Most of the research in this field has been focused on searching for new knowledge for predicting and diagnosing disease by revealing the relation between disease and various information features of data. These features are extracted by analyzing various clinical pathology data, such as EHR (electronic health records), and academic literature using the techniques of data analysis, natural language processing, etc. However, still needed are more...

A Middle-Aged man had a single vehicle motor vehicle collision with significant energy.He was hypotensive upon arrival.A bedside ultrasound was done immediately.  Here are 3 clips.There is pericardial fluid with echogenic material, diagnostic of hemopericardium with thrombus.An ECG was recorded:What do you think?Sinus tachycardia.  There are Q-waves in II, III, aVF, and V3-V6.  There is ST elevation in the same leads.  The T-waves are inverted in V4-V6, and are beginning to invert in II, III, aVF.   This is diagnostic ofsubacute MI.What do you conclude?This explains everything.  There was...

Background: Cardiac wall motion abnormality (WMA) is a common complication in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and is one determinant of their prognosis. The aim of this study was to examine whether the electrocardiography (ECG) findings at admission could predict WMA commonly observed after SAH. Materials and methods: We studied 161 SAH patients with SAH who were hospitalized in our institution between April 2007 and November 2010. We performed bedside 2-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography and 12-lead surface ECG within 24 hours of SAH onset.

BioSig Technologies (OTCQB: BSGM) said today it won FDA 510(k) clearance for its Pure EP electrophysiology system. The Santa Monica, Calif.-based company said the PureEP system is designed for acquiring, digitizing, amplifying, filtering, measuring and calculating, displaying, recording and storing electrocardiographic and intracardiac signals for patients undergoing electrophysiology procedures. The newly cleared system is intended to reduce noise and artifacts to produce high-fidelity cardiac signals, which the company claims could increase the diagnostic values of the signals. Initial Pure EP systems were prod...
