Use of the ClearSight ® System for Continuous Noninvasive Hemodynamic Monitoring during Heart Valve Interventions: Review of the Literature and Single-Site Experience.

Use of the ClearSight® System for Continuous Noninvasive Hemodynamic Monitoring during Heart Valve Interventions: Review of the Literature and Single-Site Experience. Heart Surg Forum. 2018 Nov 14;21(6):E476-E483 Authors: Gellert G, Bramlage P Abstract During interventional and structural cardiology procedures, such as mitral valve (MitraClip, BMV), aortic valve (TAVR, BAV), tricuspid valve (MitraClip), left atrial appendage (Watchman, Lariat), atrial septum (ASD/PFO closure), and coronary artery intervention (high-risk PCI), among others, patients are at a high risk of hemodynamic instability and require continuous monitoring. This is conventionally achieved through arterial catheterization and transpulmonary thermodilution. However, such invasive techniques are time-consuming and have been associated with steep learning curves, vascular complications, and increased risk of infection. In line with the ongoing simplification and improvement of the catheter-based valve intervention, it is logical to investigate the effectiveness of continuous noninvasive hemodynamic monitoring in this setting. Over the last 2 years, our team has performed over 400 valve procedures with continuous hemodynamic monitoring via the noninvasive ClearSight system. This system is based on a finger-cuff and automated volume-clamp technology integrated into a simplified clinical platform (EV1000 NI). Although current evidence suggests that the technology results in slight diffe...

Münte, Eckart Altenmüller, Esther Duarte, Antoni Rodríguez-FornellsAbstractMusic-based interventions have emerged as a promising tool in stroke motor rehabilitation as they integrate most of the principles of motor training and multimodal stimulation. This paper aims to review the use of music in the rehabilitation of upper extremity motor function after stroke. First, we review the evidence supporting current music-based interventions including Music-supporte...

We report a case of migration of arterial stent, placed in the right iliac vein into the right pulmonary artery which was diagnosed there and subsequently not removed for at least 3 years. Despite reports in the literature for the removal of migrated stents by mini-invasive interventional methods, in our case, this was not possible, because of the long period for which the foreign body was in the right pulmonary artery and the proximal partial occlusion of organized mural thrombus.

Authors: Di Lullo L, Bellasi A, Guastamacchia E, Triggiani V, Ronco C, Lavalle C, Di Iorio BR, Russo D, Cianciolo G, La Manna G, Settembrini S Abstract Diabetes mellitus, with its complications, is one of the major health problems in economically developed countries and its prevalence is constantly increasing. Kidneys and heart involvement represent main comorbidities in diabetic patients often leading to organ's failure. The treatments available until a few years ago are often associated with hypoglycemia, weight gain, gastro-intestinal disorders and other side effects together with serious averse effects on renal...

Authors: De Vecchis R, Paccone A, Di Maio M Abstract INTRODUCTION: The guidelines of the Scientific Societies of Cardiology suggest limiting water intake in the diet as one of the non-pharmacological measures for the management of chronic heart failure. However, many patients with heart failure may suffer from severe thirst, even irrespective of a possible restricted fluid intake, and this has received relatively little attention in clinical studies. Moreover, definitive and irrefutable evidence that documents the efficacy of the limitation in water consumption on major cardiovascular outcomes is lacking. Therefore...

Discussion IAB is a rather frequent finding in the general population. IAB is a risk factor for AF and is associated with an increased risk of stroke or TIA independently of associated AF. Key messagesBoth partial and advanced interatrial block are associated with increased risk of atrial fibrillation in the general population.Advanced interatrial block is an independent risk factor for stroke and transient ischemic attack.The clinical significance of interatrial block is dependent on the subtype classification.

CONCLUSION: Given the abrupt and significant life-changing nature of stroke, it is often necessary to manage a diverse array of psychological issues that often cannot be simply managed via psychotropic medications. Moreover, an understanding of the patients' emotional adjustment and issues can help them maximize their rehabilitation, recovery, and community integration. For the cases discussed, psychology consultations were central in helping optimize their rehabilitation and functional outcomes. PMID: 32083601 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: PSD consists of three correlated dimensions of depressive symptoms. Apathy symptoms are associated with cognitive impairment across several neuropsychological domains. PSD patients with prominent apathy may benefit from careful attention to cognitive functions and by interventions that address both psychopathology and behavioral deficits resulting from cognitive impairment.
