Abstract Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) is prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa, where the capacity for diagnosis and evaluation of disease severity and complications is not always optimal. While the medical history and physical examination are important in the assessment of patients suspected to have RHD, cardiovascular imaging techniques are useful for confirmation of the diagnosis. Echocardiography is the workhorse modality for initial evaluation and diagnosis of RHD. Cardiovascular magnetic resona...

BACKGROUND Antithrombotic therapy is established for the treatment of various cardiovascular events. However, it has been shown to increase the bleeding risk. Total Thrombus-formation Analysis System (T-TAS) is reported to be useful for evaluating thrombogenicity. Here, we estimated whether T-TAS is useful for predicting bleeding events risk in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS This was a retrospective, observational study at Kumamoto University Hospital betwe...

BACKGROUND Hypobaric hypoxia (HH) during flight might be more detrimental to pulmonary circulation in Fontan patients compared healthy individuals. This study was designed to clarify whether exercise-induced hypoxia could predict HH during flight in Fontan patients. METHODS AND RESULTS Percutaneous oxygen saturation (SpO2) was analyzed during flight in 11 Fontan patients and eight volunteers. SpO2 was measured before taking off (S1), at the initial (S2), the end of stabilization (S3), and after ...
Abstract Background Fontan outcomes data from large volume Middle Eastern Centres are lacking. We report our experience after the Fontan operation from a tertiary cardiac centre in Saudi Arabia. Method All 458 consecutive patients who had Fontan surgery 1986 through 2015 at the Prince Sultan Cardiac Centre, Riyadh [PSCC], Saudi Arabia, were evaluated for baseline, early and late post-operative outcomes and their uni and multivariate determinants. Results The mean age at Fontan operation was 7 ye...

BACKGROUND Inflammation is actively involved in the clinical manifestation of peripheral artery disease (PAD). Sonodynamic therapy (SDT), a novel non-invasive, plaque-based, macrophage-targeted anti-inflammatory regimen for atherosclerosis has the potential to improve walking performance by reducing plaque inflammation. METHODS This phase-2, randomized, sham-controlled, double-blind clinical trial enrolled 32 participants with symptomatic femoropopliteal PAD. The primary outcome was the 30-day c...

Abstract Purpose Our study aimed to comprehensively explore efficient prognostic indicators in idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDCM) patients with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF Background Prognostic value of cardiac magnetic resonance(CMR) parameters for IDCM have been inconsistent. Methods 126 IDCM patients with reduced LVEF ( Results During a median follow-up of 31 months, 44 patients experienced MACEs, including 9 deaths, 1 heart transplantation, and 34 rehospitalization...

Abstract Background Anemia has been recognized as an important comorbidity in patients with acute heart failure (AHF) and is associated with adverse clinical events. However, the clinical impact of red blood cell (RBC) transfusion in such patients is unclear. Method This study was a retrospective single-center registry including AHF patients admitted to Kyorin University Hospital between 2007 and 2014. Anemia was defined as a hemoglobin level 20 g/L were excluded. AHF readmission at 3 months and...

Abstract Background Despite the overall neutral results of the GLOBAL-LEADERS trial, results from a prespecified subgroup analysis showed that patients from Western Europe had a significantly lower rate of the primary endpoint when treated with ticagrelor monotherapy. Therefore, we aimed to examine the regional disparities in patients' baseline characteristics and their response to ticagrelor monotherapy. Methods Patients' baseline characteristics and the treatment effects of ticagrelor combined...

Abstract Background Existing studies have yielded conflicting results regarding the relationship between the time of occurrence of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests and the associated outcomes. We examined whether the one-month survival rate for out-of-hospital cardiac arrests differed depending on whether the cardiac arrest occurred during the day or night. Further, we examined whether this rate differed when comparing the period succeeding the 2005 International Resuscitation Guidelines (2006–20...
