Fabry disease (FD) is an X-linked lysosomal storage disorder caused by mutations in the galactosidase A (GLA) gene that result in deficient galactosidase A enzyme and subsequent accumulation of glycosphingolipids throughout the body. The result is a multi-system disorder characterized by cutaneous, corneal, cardiac, renal, and neurological manifestations. Increased left ventricular wall thickness represents the predominant cardiac manifestation of FD. As the disease progresses, patients may deve...

COVID-19 brought telemedicine to the forefront of clinical cardiology. We aimed to examine the extent of trainees' involvement in and comfort with telemedicine practices in Canada with the use of a web-based self-administered survey. Eighty-six trainees from 12 training programs completed the survey (65% response rate). Results showed that before COVID-19, 39 trainees (45%) had telemedicine exposure, compared with 67 (78%) after COVID-19 (P < 0.001). However, only 44 trainees (51%) reported bein...

Cardioaortic embolism to the brain accounts for approximately 15-30% of ischaemic strokes and is often referred to as 'cardioembolic stroke'. One-quarter of patients have more than one cardiac source of embolism and 15% have significant cerebrovascular atherosclerosis. After a careful work-up, up to 30% of ischaemic strokes remain 'cryptogenic', recently redefined as 'embolic strokes of undetermined source'. The diagnosis of cardioembolic stroke remains difficult because a potential cardiac sour...

Echocardiography (echo) is a primary imaging modality to study cardiovascular conditions. The echo examination involves capturing a set of standardized echo views, and accurate acquisition needs the expertise of an experienced sonographer. In this paper, we aim to facilitate such acquisition by developing a predictive echo view conversion model to provide the novice sonographer with an estimate of what the next standard view may look like, given a captured view. We propose a novel constrained co...

The left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) is one of the most commonly measured cardiac parameters in echocardiography (echo). While the clinical guidelines suggest that apical views are used for LVEF assessment, these views are difficult to obtain for less experienced operators. Specifically, in point-of-care imaging, parasternal views are commonly used for rapid assessment of LVEF, since those views can be easier to obtain. However, robust LVEF estimation is challenging due to high variabil...

Objective To keep health care providers, in response to the ongoing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, informed about the medications that have been proposed to treat the disease and the evidence supporting their use. Quality of evidence A narrative review of medications most widely used to treat COVID-19 was conducted, outlining the best available evidence for each pharmacologic treatment to date. Searches were performed in PubMed, EMBASE, and MEDLINE using key words COVID-19 and tre...

Abstract Background Echocardiographic assessment of diastolic function is complex but can aid in the diagnosis of heart failure, particularly in patients with preserved ejection fraction. In 2016, the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) and European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) published an updated algorithm for the evaluation of diastolic function. The objective of our study was to assess its impact on diastolic function assessment in a real-world cohort of echo studies....

This paper presents U-LanD, a framework for joint detection of key frames and landmarks in videos. We tackle a specifically challenging problem, where training labels are noisy and highly sparse. U-LanD builds upon a pivotal observation: a deep Bayesian landmark detector solely trained on key video frames, has significantly lower predictive uncertainty on those frames vs. other frames in videos. We use this observation as an unsupervised signal to automatically recognize key frames on which we d...
