The role of autoantibodies in arrhythmogenesis has been the subject of research in recent times. This review focuses on the rapidly expanding field of autoantibody-mediated cardiac arrhythmias. Since the discovery of cardiac autoantibodies more than three decades ago, a great deal of effort has been devoted to understanding their contribution to arrhythmias. Different cardiac receptors and ion channels were identified as targets for autoantibodies, the binding of which either initiates a signali...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW To discuss the possible harmful effects and pathophysiology of exercise in cases of pericarditis, explore the role of multi-modality imaging to help guide exercise recommendations, and compare U.S. with European guideline recommendations on the safe resumption of physical activity following resolution of pericarditis. RECENT FINDINGS Despite multiple postulated mechanisms by which exercise may be harmful during active inflammation of the myocardium or pericardium, the exact pat...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Mitral annular calcification (MAC) is associated with cardiovascular comorbidities and events and in the presence of mitral stenosis (MS) represents a high-risk cohort with limited treatment options. Emerging hybrid, minimally invasive, and transcatheter therapies that use circumferential MAC as an anchor for mitral valve replacement are emerging, but none are consistently associated with ideal outcomes. RECENT FINDINGS In patients with MAC and nonrheumatic calcific mitral sten...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Sex is an important determinant of cardiac structure and function. We review key sex differences in universal echocardiographic parameters and discuss the clinical implications of using sex-specific algorithms to increase the diagnostic accuracy of echocardiography and improve the timely treatment of common cardiovascular disorders, and the unique role of echocardiography in pregnancy and the evaluation of ischemic heart disease. RECENT FINDINGS Emerging echocardiographic findi...
PURPOSE OF REVIEW New transcatheter techniques to perform tricuspid annuloplasty are evolving and are introduced into the clinical routine. Yet, clinical experience is limited. RECENT FINDINGS Currently, 3 different techniques for tricuspid annuloplasty have been used in larger clinical cohorts. They can be divided into direct annuloplasty techniques and suture plication techniques. The largest clinical evidence is related to direct annuloplasty techniques. It has been shown that annular dimensi...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Antiplatelet therapy remains the standard of care in secondary stroke prevention for non-cardioembolic ischemic stroke and transient ischemic attack. We aim to examine the use of antiplatelet agents in secondary prevention through highlighting relevant clinical trials and meta-analyses as well as providing commentary regarding our practice. RECENT FINDINGS In the POINT and CHANCE trials, dual antiplatelet therapy reduced recurrent stroke compared to aspirin monotherapy. Sub-ana...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Heart failure remains a major public health concern with high burden of morbidity and mortality despite advances in pharmacotherapy, device therapy, and surgical and percutaneous techniques. Cardiac regeneration may have a role to play in these patients with a huge unmet need for these therapies in patients with chronic ischemic heart disease, post-infarct heart failure, dilated cardiomyopathy, and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. RECENT FINDINGS In this review, ...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Mitral valve repair is a common surgical procedure for both primary and secondary mitral regurgitation. With operations performed earlier in disease progression and increased patient longevity, the need for a repeat intervention is not infrequent. With the associated risks of reoperation and patient comorbidities, percutaneous techniques for acute or delayed failure after ring annuloplasty are emerging. RECENT FINDINGS Current commercially available devices, used in "off-label"...

Purpose of review null Pregnancy-associated myocardial infarction is a principal cause of cardiovascular disease with a steadily rising incidence of 4.98 AMI events/100,000 deliveries over the last four decades in the USA. It is also linked with significant maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality, with maternal case fatality rate ranging from 5.1 to 37%. The management of acute myocardial infarction can be challenging in pregnant patients since treatment modalities and medication use are limi...
Purpose of review null This review aims to assess the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), trying to assess the possible future trajectory of the CVDs and their management. null Recent findings null The COVID-19 pandemic has had a deleterious impact on the CV risk factors, with an increase in both sedentary and unhealthy food habits. The fear of contagion has decreased the access to the emergency systems with an increase in out-of-hospital-cardiac-arrests...
