This study aimed to reevaluate the current prevalence of AAA in male patients with CHD, in order to assess whether CHD patients should be offered a targeted AAA ultrasound screening program. Patients and methods: The SCAN (Screening Cardiovascular Patients for Aortic Aneurysms) study prospectively evaluated the AAA prevalence in 1000 consecutive male CHD patients (70.1 ± 11.2 years) requiring any coronary intervention at an university hospital. All patients received transverse and longitudinal ultrasound scans of the abdominal aorta. Aortic diameter was assessed using the outer-to-outer measurement-te...

The rapid development, over the past 10  years, of novel transvascular devices to treat valvular heart disease, has placed assessment of valve disease severity into the spotlight. For the past 30 or so years, echo-Doppler has been the mainstay of valvular assessment. Despite improvements in equipment and advent of 3D ultrasound, echo-Do ppler remains largely semiquantitative [1], for most valve pathologies. There is a growing need for objective, reproducible quantifiable measures for grading valve severity, with less reliance on untenable assumptions.

CONCLUSIONS: TTE can provide important information with a direct impact on the management of patients. Faced with cardiac emergencies, an adapted training can be proposed for the MP. Thereby, the transfer of conventional cardiac views could facilitate the advice of a cardiologist. PMID: 32591832 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Flavonoids are known to have a beneficial effect on some types of neoplastic cells and other diseases; therefore, larger studies are necessary to better evaluate the beneficial effects of consuming foods containing flavonoids on these diseases. PMID: 32565751 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract OBJECTIVE: The primary objective of this study is to assess whether foetuses with congenital heart disease (CHD) have smaller frontal brain areas than normal controls. Secondary objective is to evaluate whether there is any difference among CHD with different haemodynamics. METHODS: Retrospective cross-sectional study, including 421 normal foetuses and 101 fetuses with isolated CHD. The study group was subdivided according to the CHD haemodynamics into the following subcategories: 1) Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) and other forms of functionally univentricular heart defects; 2) Transposition ...

Rationale: Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is a hereditary cardiomyopathy disease discovered in 1994. Though there are advances in diagnosis of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy, early diagnosis is still difficult especially when it is combined with other diseases with similar pathophysiologic changes, such as left to right shunt congenital heart disease (CHD). In this paper, we reported a case of CHD combined with ARVC. Patient concerns: The patient was referred to us for chest tightness and shortness of breath after physical activities. His cardiac MRI indicated the possibility o...

Medical imaging saves millions of lives each year, helping doctors detect and diagnose a wide range of diseases, from cancer and appendicitis to stroke and heart disease. Because non-invasive early disease detection saves so many lives, scientific investment continues to increase. Artifical intelligence (AI) has the potential to revolutionize the medical imaging industry by sifting through mountains of scans quickly and offering providers and patients with life-changing insights into a variety of diseases, injuries, and conditions that may be hard to detect without the supplemental technology. Images are the largest source...
