Authors: Lee SH, Hon KL, Chiu WK, Ting YW, Lam SY Abstract OBJECTIVES: There is no guideline in Hong Kong regarding respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) immunoprophylaxis for children with heart disease because of a lack of local data on RSV infection. Therefore, this study evaluated the epidemiology and impact of RSV infection on children with heart disease in Hong Kong, with the goal of providing recommendations regarding RSV immunoprophylaxis. METHODS: This multicentre retrospective case-control study on paediatric RSV infection was conducted in four local regional hospitals from 2013 to 2015. The patients' dem...

The transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) channel is a calcium-permeable nonselective cation channel in the plasma membrane that belongs to the transient receptor potential (TRP) channel superfamily. Recent studies have suggested that the TRPA1 channel plays an essential role in the development and progression of several cardiovascular conditions, such as atherosclerosis, heart failure, myocardial ischemia–reperfusion injury, myocardial fibrosis, arrhythmia, vasodilation, and hypertension. Activation of the TRPA1 channel has a protective effect against the development of atherosclerosis. Furthermore, TRPA1 c...

ConclusionsHR is independently associated with increased all-cause mortality in SR and a lower HR ( ≤ 60 bpm) is favorable for better outcome in HFpEF patients with SR. Beta-blocker use is associated with reduced mortality and a lower HR is associated with reduced mortality in HFpEF patients with SR.

Ventricular remodeling is a major pathological process of normal heart failure. With the aging of society, poor diet control, social, psychological and other risk factors in our country, the incidence of myocardial infarction and hypertension is reported to increase yearly. Many treatment methods have effectively delayed the occurrence of ventricular remodeling. However, in order to prevent and delay the occurrence and development of ventricular remodeling, the new treatment strategy cannot be ignored.

CONCLUSION: COPD, IPF, LHF, and PAH each exhibit unique 129Xe MR imaging and dynamic spectroscopy signatures. These metrics may help with diagnostic challenges in cardiopulmonary disease and increase understanding of regional lung function and hemodynamics at the alveolar-capillary level.

We examined whether combined assessment of pulmonary vascular resistance and right ventricular function by echocardiography is useful for classifying risks in PAH. In 41 consecutive patients with PAH (mean age of 48.9  ± 17.3 years, 31 females), a 6-min walk test, pulmonary function test, and echocardiography were performed at baseline and during PAH-specific therapies. The study endpoint was defined as a composite of cardiovascular death and hospitalization for PAH and/or right ventricular failure. During a follow-up period of 9.2 ± 8.7 months, 18 patients reached the en...
