Safety and Efficacy of Off-label use of Ivabradine in Patients with Acute Heart Failure
ConclusionThe results of this pilot study demonstrated the safety of the early use of ivabradine alone versus beta-blockers when tolerated, in patients admitted with acute HF (both acutely decompensated as well as de novo). Patients in both groups achieved comparable reduction in heart rate with improvement in functional capacity and exercise tolerance. (Source: Journal of the Saudi Heart Association)

Conclusion2/3 of children requiring CPR post cardiac surgery survived after 5 years. Their neurodevelopmental and functional evaluation demonstrated worse outcome in comparison with their matching cases. CPR duration, number of CPA events and late CPA were risk factors for poor outcome. Rehabilitation and special education programs might be needed for these group of children with special needs.

This study was aimed at assessing the vasoconstrictor component of atherothrombotic culprit lesions in patients with STEMI receiving primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).Methods100 patients with STEMI were enrolled prospectively. Baseline coronary angiography achieving normal antegrade flow was followed by 200μg of intracoronary nitroglycerin (NTG) injection and repeat coronary angiography at the same projection view for culprit lesions was performed. End points were the changes in lesion length, reference vessel diameter, minimal lumen diameter and diameter stenosis by quantitative coronary analysis before ...
