Clinical Correlates and Prognostic Value of Elevated Right Atrial Pressure in Patients With Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy.

CONCLUSIONS: Elevated RAP in patients with HCM is associated with left-sided heart failure and is an independent predictor of all-cause mortality and new-onset AF. PMID: 29526913 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In conclusion, our study has established a pathophysiological role for ROS signaling in atrial cardiomyocytes, and it may be that ox-CaMKII and p-CaMKII (Thr-286) are activated by ROS to increase AF susceptibility following ibrutinib treatment. We have also identified the inhibition of NOX as a potential novel AF therapy approach.

RESUMEN Objetivo: Comparar las medidas de gasto cardiaco por ecocardiograf ía transtorácica y por catéter arterial pulmonar en pacientes en ventilación mecánica con presión positiva al final de la espiración elevada. Evaluar el efecto de la insuficiencia tricúspide. Métodos: Se estudiaron 16 pacientes en ventilación mecánica. El gasto cardiaco se midió con el catéter arterial pulmonar y por ecocardiografía transtorácica. Las medidas se realizaron en diferentes niveles de presión positiva al final de la espiraci&o...

ConclusionsOur results suggest that sex-specific differences in LV geometry, hyper-contractility and diastolic function, not greater degree of LV myopathy, contribute to a higher, age-independent risk of diastolic HF in women with HCM.Graphical abstract

Publication date: October 2018Source: Journal of the Saudi Heart Association, Volume 30, Issue 4Author(s): Sara Saleh Aldwailah, Dikra Al-Dobai, Deema Alduaiji, Shatha Naser Almutari, Azra Mahmud, Mohammad AlGhamdiIntroductionHypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM), a relatively uncommon entity, is the most common form of genetic cardiovascular disorders. It is the most common cause of sudden death in the young and also heart failure which can occur at any age. While HCM is a well-described global disorder, there is paucity of data on this important clinical entity in Saudi Arabia. Therefore, the aim of this study was to explore...

CONCLUSIONS: Cardiac involvement in m.3243A>G carriers has been only rarely systematically studied, which is perhaps why the incidence of cardiac diseases in MELAS is lower than would be expected. Myocardial abnormalities are much more frequent than arrhythmias or conduction defects. All symptomatic and asymptomatic m.3243A>G carriers should be systematically investigated for cardiac disease.

Abstract Male patient in dilated phase of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy had multiple hospitalizations during the past 2 years either due to congestive heart failure, stroke, scar epilepsy, or atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. Medication included evidence based therapy for heart failure, cordarone and warfarin. Anticoagulation had to be discontinued due to marked fluctuations in INR. Transthoracic Echocardiography (TTE) revealed a mobile mass in the left ventricle. He was treated with Dabigatran 110mg twice a day for 4 months without any bleeding or embolic episode and complete resolution of thrombus. ...
