AbstractABO blood group has been associated with various disease phenotypes. However, ABO blood group to influence patients in risk of venous thromboembolic events (VTEs) and arterial thromboembolic events (ATEs) remains controversial after evaluation in several reports. To fully assess effects of ABO blood group on VTEs and ATEs, we conducted a cross-sectional study and investigated the interaction between blood group and age, and between blood group and sex on the prevalence of VTEs and ATEs. In addition, the effect of blood group on ATEs in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) was observed. Detailed information of 783...

Conclusion: Cardiac manifestations of Dengue were present in 11.4 % of our patents. Brady arrhythmias (6.6%) were commonest manifestation which resolves spontaneously within seven to fourteen days. Left ventricular systolic dysfunction was present in 3.3% of patients which recovered within three months. Pericardial effusion was seen in 2.5% of patients. There were no significant tachyarrhythmias in our patients except one case of atrial fibrillation. PMID: 31559761 [PubMed - in process]

We report a case of a 29-year old male with HF, dilated cardiomyopathy possibly related to myocarditis, and atrial fibrillation with reduced ejection fraction. Sacubitril/valsartan treatment was initiated after two years of standard treatment. In two years, therapy with sacubitril/valsartan led to persistence in sinus rhythm and progressive recovery of ejection fraction, functionality, and reduction of cardiac volumes. The patient is currently in good condition and has suspended diuretic therapy in the last six months. PMID: 30895821 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Babuty, GYH. LipBackgroundAtrial fibrillation (AF) may be related to acute, temporary causes such as alcohol use, myocardial ischemia, myocarditis, hyperthyroidism, etc. It remains unclear whether antithrombotic management should be different in this setting after resolution of the episode.PurposeOur objective was to describe the outcomes in patients with such a temporary cause of AF (TCAF), and to compare the specific subgroup...

We describe the current state of cardiovascular disease biomarkers across a range of diseases, including myocardial infarction, acute coronary syndrome, myocarditis, hypertension, heart failure, heart transplantation, aortic stenosis, diabetic cardiomyopathy, atrial fibrillation, and sepsis. We present the current understanding of microRNAs as possible biomarkers in these categories and where their best opportunities exist to enter clinical practic Expected final online publication date for the Annual Review of Pathology: Mechanisms of Disease Volume 14 is January 24, 2019.

Prognostic Value of Electrocardiography in Patients With Fulminant Myocarditis Supported by Percutaneous Venoarterial Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation - Analysis From the CHANGE PUMP Study. Circ J. 2018 Jun 01;: Authors: Sawamura A, Okumura T, Ito M, Ozaki Y, Ohte N, Amano T, Murohara T, CHANGE PUMP Investigators Abstract BACKGROUND: Fulminant myocarditis (FM) presents various abnormal findings on ECG, the prognostic impact of which has not been not fully elucidated. The aim of this study was therefore to clarify the prognostic value of ECG data in FM patients supported by venoarterial extracorpo...

We report a fatal case of isolated lymphocytic atrial myocarditis affecting only the left atrium in a 56-year-old man, where microscopy of the left atrium confirmed a florid lymphocytic myocarditis. Retrospective postmortem computed tomography scan review did not show any abnormalities on the left atrial wall.

CONCLUSIONS: On the basis of the reported association among CD, AS and CV diseases, we suggest to perform a more detailed CV risk assessment in all CD patients than what is currently being achieved in clinical practice, in order to scan and treat modifiable CV risk factors in these patients. In particular, we suggest to resort to instrumental techniques to detect AS in the subclinical stage, in order to prevent AS development and CV diseases in CD patients.
