ConclusionNuclear localization of OPN in cardiomyocytes of patients with CAV was evident at the time of cardiac retransplant as well as in patients with DCM at the time of the 1st transplant. The results implicate nuclear OPN as a novel biomarker for severe CAV and DCM.

The role of coronary angiography in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients in the absence of ST-segment elevation: A literature review. Neth Heart J. 2020 Aug;28(Suppl 1):108-114 Authors: Spoormans EM, Lemkes JS, Janssens GN, van der Hoeven NW, Bonnes JL, van Royen N Abstract Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is a major cause of death. Although the aetiology of cardiac arrest can be diverse, the most common cause is ischaemic heart disease. Coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary intervention, if indicated, has been associated with improved long-term survival for patients with in...

Abstract Ischaemia with no obstructive coronary arteries (INOCA) is a common ischaemic heart disease with a female preponderance, mostly due to underlying coronary vascular dysfunction comprising coronary microvascular dysfunction and/or epicardial coronary vasospasm. Since standard ischaemia detection tests and coronary angiograms are not suitable to diagnose coronary vascular dysfunction, INOCA is often overlooked in current cardiology practice. Future research, including large outcome trials, is much awaited. Yet, adequate diagnosis is possible and treatment options are available and vital to reduce s...

Abstract Determining the anatomic severity and extent of coronary artery disease (CAD) by means of coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) and its effect on perfusion using myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) form the pillars of the non-invasive imaging assessment of CAD. This review will 1) focus on CCTA and [15O]H2O positron emission tomography MPI as stand-alone imaging modalities and their combined use for detecting CAD, 2) highlight some of the lessons learned from the PACIFIC trial (Comparison of Coronary CT Angiography, SPECT, PET, and Hybrid Imaging for Diagnosis of Ischemic Heart Disease ...

The diameter of femoral vessels was angiographically explored in pediatric patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) and compared with anthropometric and demographic indexes. A total of 153 pediatric patients younger than 3 years old were recruited. The sex, age, weight, and height of patients were recorded daily, and the body surface area (BSA) was calculated with the Mosteller formula. The values of mean left-right diameters were 3.13 (0.32) mm for the femoral artery (FA) and 5.14 (0.68) mm for the femoral vein (FV). The FA diameter (FA-Dm) and FV diameter (FV-Dm) were clearly related (R = 0.84, P

AbstractBackgroundIncreased uptake of18F-Sodium fluoride (18F-NaF) PET has potential to identify atherosclerotic plaques that are vulnerable to rupture. Whether18F-NaF PET can evaluate the significance of atherosclerotic plaque in patients with stable coronary artery disease is less clear. We evaluated18F-NaF PET uptake in coronary arteries in patients without acute coronary artery syndrome to determine the association of18F-NaF signal uptake with severity of coronary stenosis.Methods and ResultsWe retrospectively identified 114 patients who received both regadenoson stress82Rb myocardial perfusion PET and18F-NaF PET study...

We present a case of a 4 ‐year‐old child operated previously for cyanotic congenital heart disease where the follow‐up computed tomography (CT) angiography revealed anomalous origin of the left vertebral artery from the descending thoracic aorta. This case also highlights the potential implications of this variant and the value of CT angiography in diagnosing this anomaly.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the value of epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) thickness combined with serum ischemic modified albumin (IMA) concentration in the diagnosis of coronary heart disease. METHODS: A total of 180 patients with coronary heart disease from May 2017 to December 2018 were selected as the case group. After the examination of Judkins coronary angiography, they were grouped according to the results of angiography, including 60 patients in a single-vessel group, 60 patients in a double-vessel group, and 60 patients in a multi-vessel group. Sixty healthy people with physical examinations at ou...
