Is there any role for computed tomography imaging in anticipation functional status of adults late after total cavopulmonary connection? Retrospective evaluation.
man P Abstract BACKGROUND: The Fontan procedure is performed in patients with congenital heart diseases and abnormal anatomy which preclude intracardiac repair separating the systemic and pulmonary circulation. The role of computed tomography (CT) imaging in assessing patients after total cavopulmonary connection (TCPC) is not well defined. AIMS: Aim of the study was to determine potential role and capability of CT imaging in functional assessment of adults after TCPC. METHODS: Data of eighteen patients (10 women, mean age 27.9±6.3 years) after TCPC procedure were retrospectively analyzed. All und...

Controversies in the management of patients with arterial hypertension.
Abstract Every 5 to 6 years, international and national guidelines provide updated recommendations for the standard management of hypertension in adults. Thus, within the last 18 months, European (ESC/ESH), American (ACC/AHA) and British (NICE) societies published there new guidelines. Despite the fact that all of them are supposedly based on most recent clinical evidence, there are always some discrepancies between recommendations due to different interpretations of the clinical trials. The purpose of the present review is to discuss six issues that have generated some controversies. These address the definition ...

The effect of sacubitril/valsartan on the occurrence of ventricular arrhythmia and the risk of sudden cardiac death in patients with chronic heart failure with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction. Expert opinion of the Heart Rhythm and Heart Failure Associations of the Polish Cardiac Society.
Abstract Exacerbation of chronic heart failure (HF) is the most common cause of hospitalization in adults, which is associated with high morbidity and mortality, mainly in the mechanism of exacerbation of chronic HF or sudden cardiac death (SCD). A novelty in the treatment of HF with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (HFrEF) in recent years has been registration of sacubitril/valsartan - a drug belonging to the angiotensin II receptor and neprilysin inhibitors (ARNI). Sacubitril/valsartan significantly reduces the severity of HF symptoms, the risk of hospitalization and death and is characterized by a goo...

Current management and surgical advances in patients with obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
Abstract Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most frequent primary cardiomyopathy, a genetic disease affecting 1:500 of the general population. Integrated multimodality imaging - using transthoracic echocardiography, 2D/3D-transesophageal echocardiography, stress-echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance succeeds in providing answers to management questions, leading to standardized protocols. If the late 90s came with the news of a non-surgical method to treat the obstruction in HCM patients, nowadays, it is increasingly evident the septal ablation is not able to address all the mechanisms of the LVOT g...
