Contemporary trends of the incidence of spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) - ethnic and household income disparities
CONCLUSION: : Recent trends (2017) indicate the highest incidence is among the White race, highest household income quintile, and in Census Region 4. These findings defy racial trends in cardiovascular disease burden which need further discovery.PMID:35593175 | DOI:10.1080/14779072.2022.2080055 (Source: Expert Review of Cardiovascular Therapy)

Mechanical circulatory support in cardiogenic shock: a critical appraisal
Expert Rev Cardiovasc Ther. 2022 May 19. doi: 10.1080/14779072.2022.2078702. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) complicated by cardiogenic shock (CS) is a life-threatening condition frequently encounter in patients with multivessel coronary artery disease (MVD).AREAS COVERED: Despite prompt revascularization, in particular percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and therapeutic and technological advances, the mortality rate for CS related to AMI remain unacceptably high. Differently form hemodynamically stable setting, a culprit lesion-only (CLO) revascularization strategy is cu...

Point-of-care heart failure platform: where are we now and where are we going to?
Expert Rev Cardiovasc Ther. 2022 May 19. doi: 10.1080/14779072.2022.2080657. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: Heart failure (HF) remains a leading cause of cardiovascular (CV) mortality in patients with CV disease. The point-of-care (POC) HF platform seems to be an ideal non-invasive workflow-adapted system for personally adjusted management of patients with HF.AREAS COVERED: In the present manuscript, we reviewed the literature covering some relevant studies regarding the role of point-of care heart failure platform in the risk stratification, earlier diagnosis and prognostically beneficial treatment of patient...

Androgenic steroids dysregulation and the risk of coronary artery disease
Expert Rev Cardiovasc Ther. 2022 May 19:1-7. doi: 10.1080/14779072.2022.2077193. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: Endogenous testosterone deficiency or excess anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) have been linked to alter the physiology of different organs in the body, more specifically, the vasculature of coronary arteries. Despite the health-related concerns of using synthetic testosterone derivatives, such as AAS, there has been a tremendous increase in the use of AAS among athletes and bodybuilders.AREAS COVERED: We have highlighted the three main mechanisms that AAS increase the risk of coronary artery diseas...

Validation for EuroSCORE II in the Indonesian cardiac surgical population: a retrospective, multicenter study
CONCLUSION: This study suggested that the EuroSCORE II was a poor predictor for postoperative mortality in Indonesian patients who underwent cardiac surgery procedures. Therefore, EuroSCORE II may not be suitable for mortality risk prediction in Indonesian populations, and surgical planning should be decided on an individual basis.PMID:35579398 | DOI:10.1080/14779072.2022.2078703 (Source: Expert Review of Cardiovascular Therapy)

Risk stratification to optimize the management of acute pulmonary embolism
Expert Rev Cardiovasc Ther. 2022 May 11. doi: 10.1080/14779072.2022.2077194. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a life-threatening disease. Risk stratification in patients with acute PE can guide clinical decisions. Clinical assessment, including hemodynamics, respiratory parameters, patient history, and right ventricle evaluation, has a pivotal role in this scope.AREAS COVERED: This review aims to describe: i) the role of individual tools for prognostic stratification, from simple clinical parameters to the models suggested by international guidelines; ii) the implications of risk strat...

Balloon aortic valvuloplasty: current status and future prospects
Expert Rev Cardiovasc Ther. 2022 May 5. doi: 10.1080/14779072.2022.2074837. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: Balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV) improves hemodynamic and clinical status of patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) for a limited period of 6-12 months. However, there is a high number of procedures performed worldwide and an upward trend over the last decades.AREAS COVERED: Epidemiology of AS and the advent of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) contribute to the extensive referral of patients. The expansion of recommendations for TAVI has occasionally led to financial reimbursement-relat...
