Combined treatment with ultrasound-targeted microbubble destruction technique and NM-aFGF-loaded PEG-nanoliposomes protects against diabetic cardiomyopathy-induced oxidative stress by activating the AKT/GSK-3β1/Nrf-2 pathway. Drug Deliv. 2020 Dec;27(1):938-952 Authors: Zhang M, Zhu NW, Ma WC, Chen MJ, Zheng L Abstract The present study sought to investigate the effect of non-mitogenic acidic fibroblast growth factor (NM-aFGF) loaded PEGylated nanoliposomes (NM-aFGF-PEG-lips) combined with the ultrasound-targeted microbubble destruction (UTMD) technique on modulating diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM)an...

Abstract Patients with Chagas cardiomyopathy (ChC) usually progress with fatigue and dyspnea. Exercise tests are valuable for the functional evaluation of these patients. However, information about the applicability of the exercise tests is scattered, and no studies have systematically reviewed the results. Thus, the present review explored the general aspects and prognostic value of exercise tests in patients with ChC. A literature search of the MEDLINE, Web of Science, CINAHL, Scopus, and LILACS databases was performed to identify relevant studies. There were no data restrictions, and articles that met the objective of t...

As the number of patients inflicted with COVID-19 continue to increase, more is learned about the cardiovascular manifestations of the disease. The disease can result in severe systemic stress resulting in respiratory and hemodynamic failure. Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is reversible left ventricular apical ballooning typically mediated by severe stress in the absence of significant coronary artery stenosis. Khalid et al. (DOI: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.hrcr.2020.05.020) share a case of a 76-year-old female who was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) due to acute respiratory failure secondary to COVID-19 infection.

AbstractChildren at high risk for sudden cardiac death (SCD) receive implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD) for prevention, but the cost effectiveness of ICDs in children at intermediate risk is unclear. Our objective was to create a cost-effectiveness model to compare costs and outcomes in children at risk of SCD, with and without ICD. Utilizing hypertrophic cardiomyopathy as the proxy disease, a theoretical cohort of 8150 children was followed for 69  years. Model inputs were derived from the literature, with an incremental cost-effectiveness ratio (ICER) willingness-to-pay threshold of $100,000/quality-adjus...

Authors: S A, R V, P C, V I Abstract Ortners syndrome is a rare cause of recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy due to cardiac causes. After the description of this syndrome by Ortner in patients with mitral stenosis, it was described by many authors in multiple other cardiac conditions. Here we present a case of Ortner's syndrome in Dilated cardiomyopathy,which reverted completely after medical management of DCMP. PMID: 32610886 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Sirico G, Montisci A, Secchi F, Mantica M Abstract A significant number of sudden death (SD) is observed in myotonic dystrophy (DM1) despite pacemaker implantation and some consider the ICD to be the preferential device in patients with conduction disease. According to the latest guidelines, prophylactic ICD implantation in patients with neuromuscular disorder should follow the same recommendations of non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy, being reasonable when pacing is needed. We here report a case of DM1 patient who underwent ICD implantation even in the absence of conduction disturbances on ECG and ventr...
