We examined 969 patients, at least 6 months after myocardial infarction or coronary revascularisation. Depression or anxiety was assessed using a standard HADS (Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale), while QoL by SF-36 (Short-Form-36 Questions) questionnaires. Follow-up was done to assess mortality in incidence of non-fatal cardiovascular event. Results: Both mood disorders were rather frequent; borderline depression or anxiety (HADS score 8-10) had 14.8 or 10.9% of patients, respectively; moderate-to-severe depression or anxiety (HADS score ≥11) had another 8.2 or 6.7% of patients. After adjustment for potentia...

Publication date: Available online 23 August 2019Source: Journal of Cardiology CasesAuthor(s): Vincenzo De Simone, Paola Guarise, Gabriele Zanotto, Giorgio MorandoAbstractPulmonary hypertension due to left heart disease (PH-LHD) frequently complicates heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). 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...

Double-outlet right ventricle is a complex congenital heart disease that encompasses various common and rare subtypes. Surgical management of these patients needs to be individualized owing to extremely variable morphology and hemodynamics. Imaging plays a crucial role in determination and characterization of outflow tract morphology. The assessment of ventricular septal defect routability with identification of associated anomalies has therapeutic implications in these patients. Multislice computed tomography with advanced 3-dimensional postprocessing techniques and dose-reduction strategies is invaluable in defining the ...

Lung cancer is currently one of the most common cancers worldwide, with increasing rates of diagnoses. There are 2,093,876 annual incident cases of lung cancer worldwide,[1] with 234,030 in the US[2] and 25,780 in Korea.[3] With the advancement of lung cancer treatments, the survivorship of lung cancer patients has improved. Five-year survival rates for localized lung cancer has increased from 49%[4] to 56%[2] in the US, with rates increasing from 16.5% to 27.1% for all lung cancer stages in Korea.[5] As a result, the number of lung cancer survivors has increased substantially, with an estimated 526,510 lung cancer survivo...

AbstractPulmonary hypertension is one of the most challenging complications in congenital heart surgery. The purpose of this study was to characterize inhaled nitric oxide administration in children with and without pulmonary hypertension who underwent congenital heart surgery and to describe the effect of nitric oxide administration on admission outcomes. This is a cross-sectional study utilizing data from the Pediatric Health Information System (PHIS) and PHIS  + databases from 2004 to 2015. Pediatric patients with a congenital heart disease diagnosis were included and divided into groups with pulmonary hyp...

Many traditional assessments of risk for coronary heart disease (CHD) and diabetes require laboratory studies performed after an 8-hour fast. We assessed whether metabolic-syndrome (MetS) severity would remain linked to future CHD and diabetes even when assessed from non-fasting samples.
