Frailty, sarcopenia and cachexia in heart failure patients: Different clinical entities of the same painting
World J Cardiol. 2021 Jan 26;13(1):1-10. doi: 10.4330/wjc.v13.i1.1.ABSTRACTHeart Failure (HF) in elderly patients is a systemic syndrome where advanced age, comorbidities with organ system deterioration, frailty and impaired cognition significantly impact outcome. Cardiac cachexia, sarcopenia and frailty despite overlap in definitions are different clinical entities that frequently coexist in HF patients. However, these co-factors often remain unaddressed, resulting in poor quality-of-life, prolonged physical disability and exercise intolerance and finally with higher rehospitalization rates and mortality.

Anthracycline-induced cardiotoxicity: A case report and review of literature
CONCLUSION: We present a case of 35-year-old African American female developing cardiogenic shock shortly after receiving a cumulative dose of 450 mg/m2 doxorubicin over 9 mo. Cardiac monitoring and management of patients receiving anthracycline chemotherapy have been an area of intense research since introduction of these agents in clinical practice. We have reviewed literature and recent advances in the prediction and prevention of AIC. Although risk factors currently identified can help stratify patients who need closer monitoring, there are limitations to our current understanding and further research is needed in this...

Diagnostic and prognostic value of cardiac imaging in amyloidosis.
quez-Rodriguez JM Abstract Amyloidosis is an infiltrative disease caused by extracellular protein deposition that has accumulated a lot of scientific production in recent years. Different types of amyloidosis can affect the heart. Transthyretin amyloidosis and light chain amyloidosis are the two most common types of cardiac amyloidosis. These entities have a poor prognosis, so accurate diagnostic techniques are imperative for determining an early therapeutic approach. Recent advances in cardiac imaging and diagnostic strategies show that these tools are safe and can avoid the use of invasive diagnostic techniques ...

Endothelial progenitor cells mobilization after maximal exercise according to heart failure severity.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Vascular endothelial dysfunction is an underlying pathophysiological feature of chronic heart failure (CHF). Patients with CHF are characterized by impaired vasodilation and inflammation of the vascular endothelium. They also have low levels of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs). EPCs are bone marrow derived cells involved in endothelium regeneration, homeostasis, and neovascularization. Exercise has been shown to improve vasodilation and stimulate the mobilization of EPCs in healthy people and patients with cardiovascular comorbidities. However, the effects of exercise on EPCs in different s...

Effects of left ventricular assist device on pulmonary functions and pulmonary hemodynamics: A meta-analysis. waqasullah.dr@gmail.com.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Given current evidence, the effect of left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation on pulmonary function tests remains controversial. AIM: To better understand the factors contributing to the changes seen on pulmonary function testing and the correlation with pulmonary hemodynamics after LVAD implantation. METHODS: Electronic databases were queried to identify relevant articles. The summary effect size was estimated as a difference of overall means and standard deviation on a random-effects model. RESULTS: A total of four studies comprising 219 patients were included. The ...

Medical therapy vs early revascularization in diabetics with chronic total occlusions: A meta-analysis and systematic review.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Management of chronic total occlusions (CTO) in diabetics is challenging, with a recent trend towards early revascularization [ER: Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and bypass grafting] instead of optimal medical therapy (OMT). We hypothesize that ER improves morbidity and mortality outcomes in diabetic patients with CTOs as compared to OMT. AIM: To determine the long term clinical outcomes and to compare morbidity and mortality between OMT and ER in diabetic patients with CTOs. METHODS: Potentially relevant published clinical trials were identified in Medline, Embase, chemica...

Transradial vs transfemoral secondary access outcomes in transcatheter aortic valve implantation: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Complications of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) procedures include bleeding, vascular complications, and strokes. These complications are often associated with the type of access used. The two types of access in TAVI procedures are primary and secondary. The main use of the primary access is for valve delivery, while secondary access is used for angiography and hemodynamic monitoring. While there are many options for primary access, those for secondary access are transfemoral and transradial. AIM: To compare outcomes between transradial vs transfemoral secondary access (TF...

Cardiac adverse events of immune checkpoint inhibitors in oncology patients: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
CONCLUSION: The most common cardiovascular irAEs were atrial fibrillation, myocarditis, and pericardial effusion. Although rare, data from post market surveillance will provide estimates of the long-term prevalence and prognosis in patients with ICI-associated cardiovascular complications.

Electronic cigarettes - myocardial infarction, hemodynamic compromise during pregnancy, and systolic and diastolic dysfunction: Minireview.
Abstract The aim of this study was to review the most recent literature on the safety of electronic cigarettes (ECs) in the context of cardiovascular disease and in the context as a tool for smoking cessation and recreational purposes. The format of this review begins with relevant research from the basic sciences and follows through with a pertinent review of clinical trials. Daily use of ECs has implications in myocardial infarction (MI) with an odds ratio of 1.70 compared to healthy, nonsmokers and even worse risk for MI with dual use of combustible cigarettes together with EC with an odds ratio of 4.62. Studie...

Dispersion of ventricular repolarization: Temporal and spatial.
Abstract Repolarization heterogeneity (RH) is an intrinsic property of ventricular myocardium and the reason for T-wave formation on electrocardiogram (ECG). Exceeding the physiologically based RH level is associated with appearance of life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. In this regard, an accurate and comprehensive evaluation of the degree of RH parameters is of importance for assessment of heart state and arrhythmic risk. This review is devoted to comprehensive consideration of RH phenomena in terms of electrophysiological processes underlying RH, cardiac electric field formation d...

Clinical significance of prolonged chest pain in vasospastic angina.
This study included 167 patients with VSA diagnosed by spasm provocation tests (SPTs) using acetylcholine, which recorded the frequencies of positive reactions to a low dose of acetylcholine (L-ACh), total occlusion due to spasm (TOC), focal spasm, and the unavoidable use of nitroglycerin (unavoidable-NTG) during SPTs. The patients underwent a medical interview that investigated the maximum duration and frequency of chest symptoms as well as the frequencies of variant angina and other serious symptoms. The patients were divided into two groups based on the maximal duration: The short-duration group (

Pericardial effusion with tamponade - an uncommon presentation leading to the diagnosis of eosinophilic granulomatosis polyangiitis: A case report.
CONCLUSION: This case highlights that when isolated pericardial involvement occurs in EGPA, diagnosis is recognized by performing pericardial biopsy demonstrating histopathologic evidence of eosinophilic infiltration. PMID: 33014293 [PubMed] (Source: World Journal of Cardiology)
