Pulmonary vein isolation for atrial fibrillation: Does ablation technique influence outcome?
Indian Heart J. 2021 Oct 29:S0019-4832(21)00231-5. doi: 10.1016/j.ihj.2021.10.012. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Over the last 20 years various techniques have been developed striving for safer and more durable pulmonary vein isolation (PVI). The three most commonly used tools are pulmonary vein ablation catheter (PVAC) and cryoballoon ('single-shot' techniques), and point-by-point (PBP) radiofrequency ablation using 3D electroanatomical mapping (EAM).OBJECTIVE: Evaluate the safety and efficacy of the different techniques in an unselected population undergoing de-novo ablation for persistent or paroxysmal atria...

Patterns of cardiovascular diseases in COVID-19 patients admitted to tertiary cardiac care centre
CONCLUSION: The most common CVD in COVID-19 patients in our study was ACS. STEMI was more common than NSTE-ACS. Advanced age, elevated serum ferritin, D-dimer, NT pro-BNP, leucocytosis, lymphopenia, lower haemoglobin, pre-existing CVDs heart failure, cardiogenic shock, AF and renal failure were associated with increased mortality in these patients.PMID:34695446 | PMC:PMC8532374 | DOI:10.1016/j.ihj.2021.10.007 (Source: Indian Heart J)

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe study aims to determine the prevalence of hypertension and associated risk factors. The study includes 9754 participants, out of which 6403 were found to be associated with hypertension. Among 6403 participants 27.75% were newly diagnosed with hypertension during examination. The present study showed, age as one of the significant risk factors for prevalence of hypertension.

Long term outcomes after bare metal stent implantation
Indian Heart J. 2021 Oct 21:S0019-4832(21)00223-6. doi: 10.1016/j.ihj.2021.10.004. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTLong term outcome data after BMS implant is not available from the Indian subcontinent. This is a prospective observational study which aims to study long term outcomes after BMS implant at a tertiary care centre. 100 consecutive patients underwent BMS implant and were followed up for 20 years. LAD was the most common vessel involved and different types of BMS were implanted. All-cause mortality was noted in 21% (n=21) whereas cardiac mortality was seen in 16%(n=16). Cumulative revascularisation free survival at...

Conduction abnormalities post alcohol septal ablation for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy - a single center experience
Indian Heart J. 2021 Oct 21:S0019-4832(21)00224-8. doi: 10.1016/j.ihj.2021.10.005. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTConduction abnormalities are commonly noted after alcohol septal ablation(ASA). This was a retrospective, observational study where we studied the incidence of new onset conduction abnormalities post ASA. 23 patients, who underwent ASA over a period of 5 years, were included in the study. Baseline conduction abnormalities were noted in 26% patients(n=6). Transient complete heart block(CHB) was noted in 21.7%(n=5) whereas new onset right bundle branch block (RBBB) was seen in 60.8%(n=14). Left bundle branch block...

Incidence and predictors of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension following acute pulmonary embolism: an echocardiography guided approach
Indian Heart J. 2021 Oct 21:S0019-4832(21)00222-4. doi: 10.1016/j.ihj.2021.10.003. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThere is significant variability in the worldwide epidemiology of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH).We thereby aim to determine the incidence and predictors of CTEPH, following an episode of acute pulmonary embolism (PE), using non-invasive modalities. Patients with acute PE were prospectively followed-up and after receiving at least 3 months of effective anticoagulation, persistently symptomatic patients with echocardiographic evidence of persistent pulmonary hypertension, were investigated ...

One-year clinical outcomes in patients with very small coronary artery disease treated with drug-eluting stents: An observational study in the Indian population
Indian Heart J. 2021 Sep 20:S0019-4832(21)00194-2. doi: 10.1016/j.ihj.2021.09.007. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPercutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in very small vessel coronary arteries is challenging due to adverse short-term as well as long-term outcomes. This single-arm, open-label, observational study assessed 1-year clinical outcomes of drug-eluting stents (DES) in Indian patients undergoing PCI for symptomatic very small-calibre coronary artery disease. It enrolled 66 Indian patients with 74 very small coronary artery lesions (reference vessel diameter: ≥2.0 and ≤ 2.25 mm); eligible for implantation with...

Etiology of chronic atrioventricular block in young adults in a public university hospital in India
Indian Heart J. 2021 Oct 20:S0019-4832(21)00219-4. doi: 10.1016/j.ihj.2021.09.013. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIn young adults, chronic atrioventricular (AV) block has scant systematic documentation in India. This prospective study included patients 18 to 40 years, presenting with AV block without reversible cause. There were 27 patients, age 32+6.3 years, with 16 males. All patients had complete AV block with a narrow QRS escape rhythm (rate 40.5±6.5 beats/min). Three patients were ANA positive and of these, 2 patients were anti ds DNA positive. The ESR and CRP levels were mildly elevated in 12 and 8 patients res...

Indian Heart J. 2021 Oct 18:S0019-4832(21)00221-2. doi: 10.1016/j.ihj.2021.10.002. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVES: COVID-19 pandemic has led to unprecedented increase in rates of stress and burn out among healthcare workers (HCWs). Heart rate variability (HRV) has been shown to be reflective of stress and burnout. The present study evaluated the prevalence of burnout and attempted to develop a HRV based predictive machine learning (ML) model to detect burnout among HCWs during COVID-19 pandemic.METHODS: Mini-Z 1.0 survey was collected from 1615 HCWs, of whom 664, 512 and 439 were frontline, second-line and non-CO...

Significance of 'recovery ST-segment depression' in exercise stress test
CONCLUSION: Patient with ST-depression restricted to recovery phase had highest specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value and positive likelihood ratio. However, accuracy was highest with both stress phase and exercise ST-segment depression.PMID:34655577 | DOI:10.1016/j.ihj.2021.10.001 (Source: Indian Heart J)
