ConclusionsThe lowered MD index early after mechanical recanalization without BGC usage can be interpreted as microstructural ischemic damage of the salvaged penumbra. It was shown that achieving complete reperfusion in a setting of BGC usage with proximal flow arrest minimizes penumbral damage and improves long-term outcomes.Key Points• Microstructural ischemic damage can be reduced by using proximal flow arrest during endovascular treatment with balloon guide catheter.• Complete reperfusion in a setting of balloon guide catheter minimizes penumbral damage and improves long-term outcome.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewMental stress –provoked myocardial ischemia (MSIMI) is an ischemic phenomenon provoked by the experience of psychologically stressful circumstances. While MSIMI was initially identified 50 years ago during activities of daily living through the use of wearable Holter monitor, subsequent research utilized the t echnologies of cardiac imaging—ventriculography and myocardial perfusion—under controlled conditions to pursue an understanding of pathophysiology and prognosis. This work revealed that MSIMI occurs in almost half of patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) an...

AbstractPurpose of reviewPulmonary hypertension (PH) is a complex, progressive abnormal physiologic and hemodynamic state seen in many conditions. The purpose of this review is to discuss the updated clinical and hemodynamic classification systems and diagnostic criteria of PH, discuss the role of noninvasive imaging for diagnosing PH, and outline a diagnostic pathway to facilitate targeted therapies.Recent findingsPH is defined as a mean pulmonary arterial pressure (mPAP)>  20 mmHg since the sixth World Symposium on Pulmonary Hypertension (WSPH) in 2018, a lower threshold than the longstanding definition of...

AbstractPurpose of reviewRapid advancements in technology and electronic medical record systems have given rise to massive amounts of cardiac imaging data with the potential to alter medical practices. The rise of machine learning (ML) and radiomics – the concept that images contain invaluable data regarding disease processes beyond what the eyes can see – promises increased precision and accuracy to the current standard of care. Recent advancements in major cardiac imaging modalities, such as echocardiography, cardiac CT and cardiac MRI, h ave uncovered promising diagnostic and prognostic information through t...

Authors: De Pascale MR, Della Mura N, Vacca M, Napoli C Abstract Novel advances for cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) include regenerative approaches for fibrosis, hypertrophy, and neoangiogenesis. Studies indicate that growth factor (GF) signaling could promote heart repair since most of the evidence is derived from preclinical models. Observational studies have evaluated GF serum/plasma levels as feasible biomarkers for risk stratification of CVDs. Noteworthy, two clinical interventional published studies showed that the administration of growth factors (GFs) induced beneficial effect on left ventricular ejection fr...
