Conclusion: This review suggests patients with RVO have an increased risk of cardiovascular events and all-cause mortality. More studies are needed to determine the highest risk periods for cardiovascular events and mortality after RVO and whether immediate cardiovascular evaluation and intervention will improve outcomes.

Diabetes Core Update is a monthly podcast that presents and discusses the latest clinically relevant articles from the American Diabetes Association’s four science and medical journals – Diabetes, Diabetes Care, Clinical Diabetes, and Diabetes Spectrum. Each episode is approximately 20 minutes long and presents 5-6 recently published articles from ADA journals. Intended for practicing physicians and health care professionals, Diabetes Core Update discusses how the latest research and information published in journals of the American Diabetes Association are relevant to clinical practice and can be applied in a ...

Abstract Methadone poisoning has become more common in the pediatric population due to extensive use of methadone maintenance therapy (MMT). It is associated with decreased level of consciousness, coma, respiratory distress and cardiac intoxication. The cardiac complications have been reported to be QT prolongation, torsade de pointes, coronary artery disease, arrhythmia, stress cardiomyopathy and death. We herein report two pediatric patients with accidental methadone poisoning who developed stress cardiomyopathy and cardiac failure. The first case was a 4-yaer-old girl and the second one was an 18-month-old girl...

Publication date: Available online 23 August 2019Source: Canadian Journal of DiabetesAuthor(s): Paolo RaggiAbstractIf a disease state is highly prevalent and its consequences are severe, it may be appropriate to seek methods to identify it early in order to forestall its development and complications. Diabetes mellitus is a proven risk factor for the development of atherosclerosis although its face and outcome are changing as shown in contemporary clinical trials. In fact, decompensated heart failure (HF) seems to drive the hospitalization rate in patients with diabetes and the mortality from HF is reduced with modern hypo...

Publication date: Available online 23 August 2019Source: Journal of Cardiology CasesAuthor(s): Vincenzo De Simone, Paola Guarise, Gabriele Zanotto, Giorgio MorandoAbstractPulmonary hypertension due to left heart disease (PH-LHD) frequently complicates heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). Specific therapies for PH have not offered an advantage in patients with PH-LHD. The combined angiotensin receptor blocker–neprilysin inhibitor (ARNI), sacubitril/valsartan, is a novel therapy that can increase levels of natriuretic peptides (NPs). The resulting action on natriuresis and vasodilation may play an impo...

Left bundle branch block (LBBB) is a frequent finding in heart failure population, especially in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). Traditionally, LBBB was considered rather as a consequence than as a cause of the myocardial disease. This assumption was reinforced by the fact LBBB is associated with poor prognosis. However, the observation of “hyper-responders” to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) among patients with DCM and LBBB, have contributed to the emergence of the entity of LBBB-induced DCM [1].
