This study assesses the effects of ivabradine, atenolol, and placebo in the setting of murine peritonitis. Mice that received atenololversus ivabradine both experienced a similar and significant decline in heart rate. The mice in the atenolol group also experienced a significant decrease in cardiac output, systolic blood pressure, and left ventricular systolic function that was not experienced by the mice who received ivabradine.Mice who received atenolol versus ivabradine versus placebo did not have significantly different survival 60 h after induction of sepsis. Future studies are needed to determine the value of ivabrad...

We examined the correlates of R-V/A and traditional echocardiographic indices of RVSD, over the spectrum of pulmonary hypertension and tertiles of mean pulmonary artery pressures (PAPm). Methods In 2016–2017, we studied 81 consecutive patients for heart transplant/advanced heart failure. Inclusion criteria were NIDCM, reduced ejection fraction (≤40%) and sinus rhythm. R-V/A was computed as the RV/pulmonary elastances ratio (R-Elv/P-Ea), derived from a combined right heart catheterization/transthoracic- echocardiographic assessment [right heart catheterization/transthoracic-echocardiographic (RHC/TTE)]. Results...

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.

The clinical utility of echocardiography for the diagnosis of pulmonary vascular disease (PVD) in former preterm infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is not established. Elevated pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) rather than pulmonary artery pressure (PAP) is the hallmark of PVD. We evaluated the utility of echocardiography in infants with BPD in diagnosing pulmonary hypertension and PVD (PVR>3 Wood units  × m2) assessed by cardiac catheterization.

Characterization of right heart catheterization (RHC) waveforms provides diagnostic and clinical information in heart failure patients. We aimed to investigate the implication of RHC waveforms, specifically the y-descent, in patients with left ventricular assist device (LVAD).

Authors: Toroghi HM, Lo KB, Ziccardi MR, Horn B, Kanjanahattakij N, Malik E, Penalver J, Rangaswami J, Gupta S, Amanullah A Abstract Worsening renal function in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction is associated with poor outcomes. Pulmonary arterial capacitance is a novel right heart catheterization derived hemodynamic metric representing pulmonary arterial tree distensibility and right ventricle afterload. Given the strong association between heart failure, pulmonary hypertension, and kidney function, the goal of this study is to investigate the correlation between Pulmonary arterial capac...
