Left ventricular noncompaction cardiomyopathy is a heart disease with relevant potential complications including heart failure, life-threatening arrhythmias, and embolic events. In order to prevent adverse outcomes, it is crucial to appropriately recognize and manage this cardiomyopathy. In this paper, we report the main clinical presentations and imaging modalities used for diagnosis, including echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging. We highlight the role of a comprehensive functional cardiac evaluation and the possible prognostic implications of both systolic and diastolic dysfunction. Furthermore, we summarize ...

Aortic stenosis (AS) is the most common valvular heart disease among elderly patients in developed countries. Surgical valve replacement is indicated for severe AS to relieve the obstructed outflow tract. Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has emerged as an alternative for patients with severe AS, particularly in those with high surgical risk. TAVI is a less invasive approach with favorable survival outcomes in high-risk patients compared with open surgery. Despite the remarkable success of TAVI, there is a growing concern on the incidence of postprocedural cognitive impairment. This review aims to evaluate the...

By now, you’ve probably heard this warning about the new coronavirus pandemic: those who are older and have a chronic medical condition are at increased risk for severe disease and death. If you fall into this category, here’s important information about the coronavirus outbreak tailored to you. If you look at the data, older adults and those with chronic health problems who get COVID-19 are more likely to require hospitalization and admission to an intensive care unit. And so far in the US, 80% of the deaths from the new coronavirus virus have occurred in people who were older. But this raises a number of ques...

Authors: Sugimoto K, Yoshihisa A, Nakazato K, Yokokawa T, Misaka T, Oikawa M, Kobayashi A, Yamaki T, Kunii H, Ishida T, Takeishi Y Abstract Pulmonary hypertension (PH) caused by left-sided heart disease (LHD-PH) is classified into 2 types: isolated post-capillary PH (Ipc-PH) and combined pre- and post-capillary PH (Cpc-PH). However, the impact of pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) or diastolic pressure gradient (DPG) on the prognosis of LHD-PH has varied among previous studies. Thus, we verified the significance of PVR or DPG on the prognosis of LHD-PH in our series.We analyzed 243 consecutive LHD-PH patients. The...

Conclusion: Here, we reveal several Nrf2 dose-responsive miRNA loci harboring putative upstream antioxidant response elements (AREs). Intriguingly, Nrf2-mediated miRNA responses were distinctly enriched for post-transcriptional regulation of cardiac-specific mRNAs. Altogether, these data reveal Nrf2 as a potent regulator of cardiac miRNA expression and provide novel candidates for future mechanistic investigation into the relationship between myocardial redox status and pathophysiology.
