Early versus delayed invasive strategy in patients with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome and concomitant congestive heart failure.

Early versus delayed invasive strategy in patients with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome and concomitant congestive heart failure. J Cardiol. 2019 Oct;74(4):320-327 Authors: Yoshida R, Ishii H, Morishima I, Tanaka A, Morita Y, Takagi K, Yoshioka N, Hirayama K, Iwakawa N, Tashiro H, Kojima H, Mitsuda T, Hitora Y, Furusawa K, Tsuboi H, Murohara T Abstract BACKGROUND: Although there are guidelines that recommend an early invasive strategy in patients with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) and concomitant congestive heart failure (CHF), optimal timing of the invasive strategy remains controversial. METHODS: Among 2045 patients who were admitted owing to NSTE-ACS or CHF, 300 presented with NSTE-ACS and concomitant CHF. Of the 300 patients, we enrolled 160 patients for whom coronary angiography (CAG) during their hospital stay was planned at the time of admission; 64 of these patients were classified into the early invasive group (

ConclusionsThe incidence of arrhythmia and shock in patients with TTC does not correlate with the extent of myocardium involvement. The presence of LBBB in such cases can help recognize at-risk populations, and with timely intervention, life-threatening complications can be avoided. Despite limitations of the dataset and inability to establish causality, prospective studies with longer follow-up are warranted.

Cardiac arrhythmias are common after cardiac surgery and have profound sequelae. Bradycardias are typically transient and have reversible causes; however, persistent atrioventricular block is an indicator for permanent pacemaker implantation after valvular surgery. Transcatheter aortic valve surgery is associated with even higher rates of permanent pacemaker implantation. Atrial fibrillation, the most common postoperative arrhythmia, is associated with ischemic stroke, myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, and short-term mortality. Ventricular arrhythmias have extremely high in-hospital mortality, as well as lon...

In conclusion, the impaired in situ activity of RyR2 may also account for the poor overall cardiac outcome reported in MetS patients; hence, the SERCA pump and RyR2 are both attractive potential targets for future therapies. Introduction Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a cluster of biochemical and physiological risk factors for cardiovascular disease and diabetes mellitus type 2 (DM2); it represents a severe public health problem around the world (Alberti et al., 2009). Risk factors for MetS include obesity (particularly central obesity), elevated triglyceride (TG) levels, low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is one of the most commonly observed chronic cardiac arrhythmias in the United States [1]. Lifetime risks for AF are high (1 in 6), even in the absence of antecedent congestive heart failure or myocardial infarction [2]. Despite advancements in treatment, rates of AF, and the associated morbidity and mortality, continue to increase over time [3]. AF prevalence tends to increase with age and is higher in men than in women [4]. The underlying mechanisms of these age and sex differences have not been fully elucidated [5,6].

This study investigated if statins would similarly reduce postoperative arrhythmias in patients undergoing THA. METHODS:: We queried a large Medicare and private-payer database from 2005 to 2012 and identified 12,075 patients who were on a statin prior to THA. We then age and sex matched 34,446 non-statin users who underwent THA. Baseline comorbidities and postoperative complications were obtained and assessed via standard descriptive statistics. RESULTS:: The statin users had more preoperative comorbidities including congestive heart failure, valvular heart disease, pulmonary and renal disease, diabetes, hyperte...

Authors: Ageyama N, Kurosawa H, Fujimoto O, Uehara T, Hiroe M, Arano Y, Yoshida T, Yasutomi Y, Imanaka-Yoshida K Abstract Inflammation after myocardial infarction (MI) may be a major factor influencing ventricular remodeling, leading to congestive heart failure and arrhythmia. Therefore, inflammation in the heart needs to be monitored. Tenascin-C (TNC) is an extracellular matrix molecule not normally expressed, but it is strongly upregulated when associated with active inflammation. Based on this characteristic, we successfully imaged in vivo inflammatory lesions in rat models using 111Indium (111In)-labeled anti-T...
