Left ventricular systolic function was assessed by 3D echo, and right ventricular systolic function was assessed by fraction area change (FAC), tricuspid annular plane systolic excu...

Dwivedi, Varun S. NarainAbstractBackgroundChemotherapy-induced cardiotoxicity constitutes subclinical myocardial dysfunction, arrhythmias, pericarditis, coronary vasospasm, significant symptomatic heart failure. Anthracyclines pose higher risk for long-term cardiac dysfunction, with increased incidences of morbidity and mortality. Hence, early detection of chemotherapy induced cardiac dysfunc...

We present the data on the prevalence of ATTR-CA in AS and their prognostic associations. Since diagnosis of ATTR-CA may be challenging, special attention is paid to the diagnostic utility of different imaging modalities, echocardiography, cardiovascular magnetic resonance, nuclear imaging, and distinctive imaging features in patients with dual pathology. We also present a flow diagram summarizing integrated imaging in patients with suspected ATTR-CA. PMID: 31740363 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Polytarchou K, Dimitroglou Y, Varvarousis D, Christodoulis N, Psachoulia C, Pantziou C, Mourouzis I, Pantos C, Manolis AS Abstract BACKGROUND: Vitamin B12 deficiency among patients with heart failure (HF) may have been underestimated. High serum levels of methylmalonic acid (MMA) have been identified in several studies as an early indicator of vitamin B12 deficiency. Furthermore, MMA seems to constitute a biomarker of oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction. Data regarding vitamin B12 and MMA in patients with HF are scarce. The aim of this study was to investigate vitamin B12 and MMA serum levels in...

CONCLUSIONS: Common comorbidities modify the association of frailty with postoperative survival; however, this effect was only apparent when analyses accounted for effect modification on the absolute risk difference, as opposed to relative scale. While the relative scale is more commonly used in biomedical research, smaller effects may be easier to detect on the risk difference scale. The concurrent presence of dementia, COPD, and HF with frailty were all associated with excess mortality on the absolute risk difference scale. PMID: 31743191 [PubMed - in process]

PotparaAbstractAmiodarone is an iodinated benzofuran derivative, a highly lipophilic drug with unpredictable pharmacokinetics. Although originally classified as a class III agent due to its ability to prolong refractoriness in cardiac regions and prevent/terminate re-entry, amiodarone shows antiarrhythmic properties of all four antiarrhythmic drug classes. Amiodarone is a potent coronary and peripheral vasodilator and can be safely used in pati...

I tried to kill my father for years. To be fair, I was following his wishes. He’d made it clear that when he no longer recognized me, when he could no longer talk, when the nurses started treating him like a toddler, he didn’t want to live any longer. My father was 58 years old when he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. He took the diagnosis with the self-deprecating humor he’d spent a lifetime cultivating, constantly cracking jokes about how he would one day turn into a zombie, a walking corpse. We had a good 10 years with him after the diagnosis. Eventually, his jokes came true. Seven years ...
