Ranolazine, a potent and specific inhibitor of late sodium current (INa,late), is commonly used to treat angina pectoris or suppress arrhythmia.1-4 Mexiletine, also a potent inhibitor of INa,late, is approved to suppress arrhythmia.5,6 Some patients receiving these drugs are likely to have heart failure (HF) due to ischemia or other causes of myocardial mechanical dysfunction. The consequences of INa,late inhibition have not been studied in patients with advanced Mattiello JA, Margulies KB, Jeevanandam V, Houser SR.

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.

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...

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...

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...
