CTO in contemporary PCI
Curr Cardiol Rev. 2021 May 31. doi: 10.2174/1573403X17666210531143519. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPercutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of chronic total occlusions (CTO) represents the most challenging procedure in modern endovascular treatments. In recent years, the success rate of CTO PCI has substantially improved, owing to increasing operator expertise and advancements in CTO equipment and algorithms as well as the development of expert consensus documents. In this review, we summarize existing evidence for CTO PCI, its success/ risk prediction scoring tools, procedural principles and complications and provide an...

The utility of circulating and imaging biomarkers alone and in combination with heart failure
Curr Cardiol Rev. 2021 May 24. doi: 10.2174/1573403X17666210525103512. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTClinical trials in the treatment of heart failure have relied on the use of a composite of hard clinical endpoints to evaluate the efficacy of the treatment arm. This has led to prolonged trials requiring large patient cohorts and extensive funding to reach statistical significance. In this paper, we have explored the potential of currently available circulating and imaging biomarkers associated with heart failure as a surrogate for hard clinical end points in the clinical trials. This would be expected to result in shorter...

Safety and Efficacy of Intermittent Hypoxia Conditioning as a new Rehabilitation/ Secondary Prevention Strategy for Patients with Cardiovascular Diseases: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
Curr Cardiol Rev. 2021 May 13. doi: 10.2174/1573403X17666210514005235. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Once used by mountaineers to facilitate rapid adaptations to altitude and by athletes to improve their aerobic capacity, exposure to hypoxia has been proven to affect various physiological, clinically relevant parameters. A form of conditioning known as Intermittent Hypoxia Conditioning (IHC) consists of repeated exposures to intermittent hypoxia, combined with normoxia and hyperoxia, which has been shown to have potential as a treatment to improve cardio-metabolic risks profile in cardiac patients but results a...
