Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute self-limited syndrome that predominantly affects children. Coronary sequelae have been identified to be responsible for a small, but significant percentage of young adults who present with myocardial ischemia. In this study, we present a case of an elderly patient with possible coronary sequelae of KD. A 76-year-old man was referred to our outpatient department for silent myocardial ischemia. Axial images of coronary computed tomography showed multiple lumens in...

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a high-incidence of heart disease. We aimed to identify potential biomarkers linked to the progression of CAD using multiple sets of data mining analysis methods. The long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) + messenger RNA (mRNA) data set GSE113079 and microRNA (miRNA) data set GSE28858 were downloaded from Gene Expression Omnibus. After data preprocessing, differentially expressed mRNA, lncRNA, and miRNA were identified using limma software. In addition, weighted gene co-ex...

The side branch (SB) provisional stenting strategy is currently the recommended approach for most coronary bifurcation lesions. However, this strategy may result in SB deterioration, which is associated with an increased incidence of periprocedural myocardial infarction (PMI) and may adversely affect the long-term prognosis. Various techniques for SB protection (SB-P) have been developed to reduce SB occlusion and improve the clinical prognosis. This meta-analysis was performed to compare the ou...
Significant paravalvular leak regurgitation (PVLR) after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a well-known complication associated with disabling symptoms related to heart failure and hemolysis or both, with poor prognostic implications. Although challenging and technically demanding, percutaneous closure is an effective treatment option for high-risk patients with symptomatic PVLR. Here, we present two cases of transcatheter PVLR closure after replacement of third-generation (one se...

Electrical storm (ES), defined by 3 or more occurrences of ventricular arrhythmias within 24 hours, has been shown to be associated with an increased risk of mortality; however, detailed information remains lacking. We aimed to examine the incidence and determinants of ES and its impact on mortality in patients enrolled in the nationwide implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) registry.We studied 1,256 patients (age 65 ± 12 years) who had structural heart disease with an ICD. The patients w...

Transthoracic, transesophageal, and intracardiac echocardiography are applicable imaging tools used for increasing the accuracy of tumor positioning during transvenous intracardiac tumor biopsy. However, incorporating echo-images in the extremely rare procedures is usually not easy. By using a contralateral catheter for simultaneous contrast injection and tip positioning, we demonstrated tumor biopsy safely and effectively in 4 cases without the guidance of echocardiography.

Catheter ablation is a treatment modality which has been increasingly used for cardiac arrhythmias. However, it is not complication-free, and cardiac perforation is one of its most life-threatening complications. As surgery is usually not the first-line treatment for this emergent episode, there were only very few sporadic surgical reports in the literature. This systemic review primarily aims to collect different surgical approaches for catheter-induced cardiac perforation to help surgeons mana...

Reportedly, approximately 9.9%-12.4% of patients with Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) are complicated with cardiogenic shock (CS) and its prognosis remains poor even with the support of conventional mechanical circulatory assist devices including intra-aortic balloon pumping and venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. Impella, a novel percutaneous left ventricular assist device, provides strong circulatory support together with the unloading of the left ventricle, and it is theoretically a pr...

Circular RNAs (circRNAs) have been implicated in the dysfunction of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs), which is linked with the development of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Herein, we explored the precise action of circRNA fibronectin type III domain containing 3B (circ-FNDC3B) in VSMC injury triggered by angiotensin II (Ang-II).Circ-FNDC3B, microRNA (miR) -143-3p, and a disintegrin and metalloproteinase 10 (ADAM10) were quantified by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction or wes...

The aim of this study is to explore the association of atrial fibrillation (AF) among physicians in Taiwan.We used Cox proportional hazards models to estimate the incidence rate and the adjusted hazard ratios (aHRs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) to determine the risk of AF in the physician study cohort relative to the comparison cohort.A total of 22,479 physicians and 22,479 matched controls for comparison were included in the study. The Cox proportional hazard regression model revealed th...
