NLRP3 Inflammasome Activation Through Heart-Brain Interaction Initiates Cardiac Inflammation and Hypertrophy During Pressure Overload
CONCLUSIONS: Cardiac inflammation and hypertrophy are regulated by heart-brain interaction. Controlling neural signals might be important for the treatment of hypertensive heart disease.PMID:36440584 | DOI:10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.122.060860 (Source: Circulation)

ECG worth a 'few hundred words
Clinical introduction A 76-year-old Chinese woman presents to the emergency department with recurrent palpitations for 3 months. She has a medical history of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hyperlipidaemia and minor coronary artery disease. Her palpitations were described as regular, rapid, with gradual onset, lasting up to 30 min on a weekly to fortnightly basis. On admission, there were presyncopal symptoms prompting her presentation. She was previously started on bisoprolol 2.5 mg once a day from another institute though no prior diagnosis or ECG was made or available. An ECG performed by the attending paramedics fortu...

Atraumatic splenic rupture in a patient treated with rivaroxaban: A case report and a narrative review
When a patient on rivaroxaban presents with abdominal tenderness and hemodynamic instability, the clinician should consider ASR in the differential diagnosis. Delayed management can be fatal in such cases. Rivaroxaban should be discontinued, and emergency splenectomy should be performed. ASR has also been reported in dabigatran and apixaban. AbstractAtraumatic splenic rupture (ASR) is a rare condition mostly associated with neoplastic, infectious, and inflammatory diseases. ASR associated with drug treatment is even rarer. In this case report, we highlight an unusual complication of the direct oral anticoagulant rivaroxaba...

Suboptimal Dosing of β-Blockers in Chronic Heart Failure: A Missed Opportunity?
Background The evidence base for the benefits of β-blockers in heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) suggests that higher doses are associated with better outcomes. Objectives The aim of this study was to report the proportion of patients receiving optimized doses of β-blockers, outcomes, and factors associated with suboptimal dosing. Methods This was a prospective cohort study of 390 patients with HFrEF undergoing clinical and echocardiography assessment at baseline and at 1 year. Results Two hundred thirty-seven patients (61%) were receiving optimized doses (≥5-mg/d bisoprolol ...

Ventricular fibrillation immediately after the treatment of Graves ’ disease coexisting with atypical angina and long QT syndrome: a case report
ConclusionsWhen beta-blockers are administered to patients with Graves ’ disease who have severe chest symptoms, fatal arrhythmias are possible. ICD implantation should be considered for the secondary prevention of fatal arrhythmias. (Source: Thyroid Research)

Significant Prolongation of the International Normalized Ratio Associated with COVID-19 Treatment: Possible Drug Interaction with Remdesivir
Yakugaku Zasshi. 2022;142(10):1125-1127. doi: 10.1248/yakushi.22-00099.ABSTRACTA 55-year-old man with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and a pacemaker was admitted with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Before admission, the patient's medications included amiodarone, diltiazem, bisoprolol, atorvastatin, etizolam, and warfarin (WF). After admission, dexamethasone (DXM) and remdesivir (RDV) were initiated for treating COVID-19. The international normalized ratio (INR) on admission was 1.8, which increased to 3.4 on day 5 and to 6.9 on day 10 after admission. Although there have been reports that RDV may occasionally prolong pr...
