Abstract Objective To elucidate the mechanisms of left ventricle (LV) functional recovery in terms of endocardial contractility and synchronicity after surgical ventricular reconstruction (SVR). Methods Real-time 3D transthoracic echocardiography (RT3DTTE) was performed on twenty patients with anterior LV remodelling and ischemic heart failure (HF) before SVR and at 6-months follow-up, and on 15 healthy controls matched by age and body surface area. RT3DTTE datasets were analysed through TomTec ...

Aims Female sex and heart failure (HF) are considered poor prognostic factors for surgery. We aimed to investigate the association between sex and surgical outcomes in patients with ischaemic HF undergoing surgical ventricular reconstruction and coronary artery bypass grafting. Methods and results From July 2001 to June 2017, 648 patients [111 women (17%) and 537 men (83%)] were referred to our centre. Follow-up continued through June 2018. All patients underwent surgical ventricular reconstruct...

Structured Abstract Objective The aim of this retrospective observational study was to examine factors possibly involved in restrictive filling pattern (RFP) resolution or persistence after surgical ventricular restoration (SVR) in a series of ischemic cardiomyopathy (ICM) patients with RFP. Methods Echocardiography was performed at baseline (pre-SVR), discharge and follow-up in 43 patients with ICM and RFP (E/A ratio ≥ 2). Patients were divided into two groups based on E/A ratio at discharge: I...

BACKGROUND Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and azithromycin (AZT) have been proposed for COVID-19 treatment. Data available in the literature reported a potential increased risk of fatal arrhythmias under these therapies. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of these drugs on QT interval and outcome in a COVID-19 population. METHOD A total of 112 consecutive COVID-19 patients were included in this analysis and were divided in 3 groups according to the receiving therapeutic regimens: 19 (17%)...

INTRODUCTION Post-infarction left ventricular remodeling is associated with increased mortality in patients with ischemic heart disease. Surgical ventricular reconstruction (SVR) in addition to coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) has been proposed to reduce left ventricular volume and improve clinical outcomes. The Surgical Treatment for Ischemic Heart Failure (STICH) trial found that the addition of SVR to CABG did not reduce the rates of death or rehospitalization in the 5 years after surge...
