Cardiac Rehabilitation Services in Low- and Middle-Income Countries: A Scoping Review.

CONCLUSION:: Although patients similarly benefit from CR, few programs are available in LMICs. Policies need to be implemented to increase provision of tailored CR models at the global and national level, with evaluation. PMID: 23839574 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We report here a series of children who developed pulmonary hypertension after HSCT. Methods Between January 2008 and December 2015, we retrospectively analysed 366 children who underwent HSCT (age range 0.5–252 months; median 20.3 months). During the post-HSCT course, echocardiography scans motivated by respiratory symptoms identified 31 patients with elevated tricuspid regurgitation velocity (>2.8 m·s–1), confirmed when possible by right heart catheterisation (RHC). Results 22 patients had confirmed pulmonary hypertension with mean±sd pulmonary arterial pressure 40.1±1...

The E/e ’ ratio has an established role in the assessment of left ventricular filling pressure (LVFP) in stable patients, but its accuracy in acute myocardial ischemia is less well established. The aim of this study was to validate the relationship between the E/e’ ratio and invasively measured LVFP in patients with non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). A total of 120 unselected patients with NSTEMI underwent cardiac catheterization with measurement of left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP; elevated ≥15mmHg) and Doppler echocardiography with either simultaneous (n=30) or same -day (n=90) ...

Differential blood oxygenation between left (LV) and right ventricles (RV; ΔSaO2) is a key index of cardiac performance; LV dysfunction yields increased RV blood pool deoxygenation. Deoxyhemoglobin increases bloo...

This study clearly goes against what has been the common wisdom for the last 30, 40 years” and may lead to less testing and invasive treatment for such patients in the future, said Dr. Glenn Levine, a Baylor College of Medicine cardiologist with no role in the research. Some doctors still may quibble with the study, but it was very well done “and I think the results are extremely believable,” he said. About 17 million Americans have clogged arteries that crimp the heart’s blood supply, which can cause periodic chest pain. Cheap and generic aspirin, cholesterol-lowering drugs and blood pressure medic...

SATURDAY, Nov. 16, 2019 -- Routine fasting may reduce the risk of heart failure and death in patients who have cardiac catheterization, a new study suggests. It included more than 2,000 patients who had cardiac catheterization between 2013 and 2015....

We describe the case of a 3-year-old autistic boy with undiagnosed scurvy who was scheduled for cardiac catheterization. Immediately after induction, the patient became hemodynamically unstable, which worsened with administration of nitrous oxide. Cardiac catheterization revealed pulmonary hypertension, which dramatically improved with administration of vitamin C. Anesthesiologists should be aware that scurvy is more common than previously thought, even in developed countries and can cause unexpected circulatory collapse from pulmonary hypertensive crisis.

CONCLUSIONS: LCx dominance, number of branches, vessel size, and dominance among diagonal branches determined the myocardial territory of diagonal branches. Clinical application of prediction models based on these anatomical attributes can help determine the clinically relevant diagonal branches in the cardiac catheterization laboratory.
