BACKGROUND Idiopathic VA are traditionally considered benign, although occasional patients develop an ectopy-mediated cardiomyopathy (EMC). It is unclear whether patients with idiopathic VA in the absence of left ventricular (LV) dysfunction harbor a subclinical cardiomyopathy. We aim to assess for cardiomyopathic substrate in patients with idiopathic ventricular arrhythmias (VA) using imaging and electrophysiologic markers of early fibrosis. METHODS Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging and ...

Abstract Background In patients with conventional pacemakers or ICD's, MRI is infrequently performed due to safety concerns. Recent reports have allayed many of these concerns. However, the additive clinical value of scanning patients with cardiac implants has not been established. Objective Assessing the additive value of thoracic and non-thoracic MRI in patients with implantable cardiac devices. Methods and results Prospective data were analyzed in 500 patients with implanted cardiac devices t...

Abstract Background Transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) offers a valuable treatment option for inoperable patients suffering from a degenerated mitral valve after previous ring annuloplasty. Dynamic obstruction of the left ventricular outflow tract(LVOT) is a procedural risk with detrimental consequences and can be estimated upfront using a multi-slice computed tomography(MSCT) derived 3D computational model(3DCM). This study explored the accuracy of pre-procedural neoLVOT prediction i...

Abstract null null Background null Cardiovascular disease (CVD) can occur in COVID-19 and has impact on clinical course. Data on CVD prevalence in hospitalized COVID-19 patients and sequelae in survivors is limited. Aim of this prospective study carried out on consecutive unselected COVID-19 population, was to assess: 1) CVD occurrence among hospitalized COVID-19 patients, 2) persistence or new onset of CVD at one-month and one-year follow-up. null null null Methods null Over 30 days n = 152 COV...

Abstract null null Background null Immune dysregulation is implicated in the development and clinical outcomes of peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM). null null null Methods and results null 98 women with PPCM were enrolled and followed for 1 year postpartum (PP). LVEF was assessed at entry, 6-, and 12-months PP by echocardiography. Serum levels of soluble interleukin (IL)-2 receptor (sIL2R), IL-2, IL-4, IL-17, IL-22, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, and interferon (IFN)-γ were measured by ELISA at e...

Abstract Aims To quantify the relation between apparent treatment resistant hypertension (aTRH) and the risk of recurrent major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE including stroke, myocardial infarction and vascular death) and mortality in patients with stable vascular disease. Methods 7455 hypertensive patients with symptomatic vascular disease were included from the ongoing UCC-SMART cohort between 1996 and 2019. aTRH was defined as an office blood pressure ≥ 140/90 mmHg despite treatment wit...

Abstract Objectives The aim of our study was to investigate the benefit of antiarrhythmic drugs (AAD) - beta-blockers, sotalol or amiodarone - in a cohort of Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC) patients with long-term longitudinal follow up. Background AAD are prescribed in ARVC to prevent ventricular arrhythmias and control symptoms. However, there are no controlled clinical trials and knowledges regarding the efficacy of AAD in ARVC are limited. Methods The study population ...

Abstract Background We aimed to assess differences in clinical characteristics, prognosis, and the temporal evolution of circulating biomarkers in male and female patients with HFrEF. Methods We included 250 patients (66 women) with chronic heart failure (CHF) between 2011 and 2013 and performed trimonthly blood sampling during a median follow-up of 2.2 years [median (IQR) of 8 (5–10) urine and 9 (5–10) plasma samples per patient]. After completion of follow-up we measured 8 biomarkers. The prim...

Abstract Aims Patients on chronic haemodialysis have a wide range of changes in cardiac function and structure, including left ventricular hypertrophy, dilation and diastolic dysfunction or pulmonary hypertension. All these changes were linked to increased mortality in previous studies. High-flow arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) are supposed to be a factor contributing to their development. This study investigated the early effect of surgical AVF blood flow (Qa) reduction on these changes in patient...
