Heartfelt sepsis: microvascular injury due to genomic storm.
Abstract Sepsis is one of the ten leading causes of death in developed and developing countries. In the United States, sepsis mortality approaches that of acute myocardial infarction and exceeds deaths from stroke. Neonates and the elderly are the most vulnerable patients, with these groups suffering from the highest sepsis mortality. In both groups, many survivors respectively display serious developmental disabilities and cognitive decline. The National Institute of Health National Heart Lung and Blood Institute Panel redefined sepsis as a "severe endothelial dysfunction syndrome in response to intravascula...

Differences in regional diastolic function between restrictive and normal physiology of right ventricle in adult patients late after tetralogy of Fallot repair.
CONCLUSIONS: Tissue Doppler imaging may show diastolic abnormalities in patients with RRP. Patients with RRVP demonstrated deterioration in IVS diastolic function when measured by SR A-waves. The diastolic function of RV free wall segments was better in patients with RRVP compared to patient without restriction of the right ventricle measured by SR.

Resistant hypertension.
Abstract The publication of the first non-randomised proof-of-concept trial of renal denervation as a treatment modality in treatment-resistant hypertension set the stage for a search for novel devices with the expectation that technology would reduce the burden of hypertension by reducing or eliminating the costly and lifelong use of blood pressure lowering medications. As we demonstrate in this review, this idea so attractive to manufacturers and invasive cardiologists and radiologists overlooked decades of careful pathophysiological research in a disease, which still remains enigmatic but remains the major caus...

Determinants of beneficial effect of mineralocorticoid receptor antagonism on exercise capacity in heart failure with reduced ejection fraction.
Abstract BACKGROUND: The determinants of the impact of mineralocorticoid receptor antagonism (MRA) on exercise tolerance in heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) have not been sufficiently characterized. AIMS: We sought to investigate the factors associated with improvement in exercise capacity following the introduction of spironolactone to therapy in HFrEF patients, as well as to assess the linkage between improvement in exercise capacity and changes in cardiac functional characteristics with treatment. METHODS: In 120 patients (age 62±11 years) with stable chronic HFrEF, remainin...

Dual and triple antithrombotic therapies: current patterns of practice and controversies.
Abstract Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) has been the cornerstone of antithrombotic management for patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Despite low-quality evidence, triple antithrombotic therapy involving acetylsalicylic acid, clopidogrel and warfarin or non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulant (NOAC) has been recommended in patients with concomitant atrial fibrillation undergoing PCI, who require long-term oral anticoagulation, although such strategy is associated with a substantially increased risk of bleeding compared with DAPT. NOAC combined with P2Y12 inhibitor alone appear to be...

Antiplatelet therapy for patients undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery.
Abstract Considerable variation in the use and duration of antiplatelet medications during the perioperative and postoperative care of patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) reflects limited studies focused directly on these patients as well as variation in the results reported. In this review we will highlight the incidence and mechanisms of graft closure as well as the evidence in support of antiplatelet therapy that is balanced by the impact of antiplatelet therapy on the risk of bleeding to provide recommendations for the use of antiplatelet therapy in patients undergoing CABG. Low dose ace...
