Authors: La Rovere MT, Traversi E Abstract The implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is the mainstay therapy for primary prevention of sudden cardiac death in patients with heart failure with a reduced ejection fraction. Current indications for prophylactic ICD are based on the results of randomized controlled trials dating back to 15-20 years ago, which have usually enrolled highly selected patients with few comorbidities and only a small number of patients aged>75 years. Existing literature suggest an age-dependent attenuation of the efficacy of the ICD. Because of the ageing of the population, there is...
Conclusion: These cases suggest the incidence of a clinical entity strongly reminiscent of Takotsubo phenomenon of atypical topography as a consequence of diving accidents. PMID: 32089094 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In conclusion, our study showed the vasodilation effect of SFI in thoracic aorta is mediated entirely by enhancing eNOS activity through the PI3K/Akt signaling pathway, providing novel knowledge on the effect of SFI on shock and HF for future clinical applications.
Conclusions: sST2 levels were correlated with the risk of adverse CV outcomes in hypertensive patients and may represent a useful prognostic marker in these patients. PMID: 32089758 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Kim MY, Park EA, Lee W, Lee SP Abstract OBJECTIVE: To determine the most valuable cardiac magnetic resonance feature tracking (CMR-FT) parameters for evaluating aortic stenosis (AS) and determine whether they can predict the prognosis in asymptomatic AS patients with preserved ejection fraction (pEF). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A prospective cohort of 123 moderate to severe AS patients (60 males, 68.6 ± 9.2 years) and 32 control subjects (14 males, 67.9 ± 4.4 years) underwent echocardiography and 3T CMR imaging from 2011-2015. CMR cine images were analyzed using CMR-FT to assess the left vent...
