Background null Lipoprotein(a)[Lp(a)] has been considered as an independent risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD). The present study aimed to evaluate the association between baseline serum Lp(a) and CAD progression determined by angiographic score. null Methods null A total of 814 patients who had undergone two or more coronary computed tomography angiography at least 6 months apart were consecutively enrolled and the coronary severity was determined by the Gensini score system. Patient...

AIMS Patients with permanently increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) can be protected by implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD). If an ICD must be removed due to infection, for example, immediate reimplantation might not be possible or indicated. The wearable cardioverter defibrillator (WCD) is an established, safe and effective solution to protect patients from SCD during this high-risk bridging period. Very few economic evaluations on WCD use are currently available. METHODS We c...

Preventive cardiology visits have traditionally focused on educating patients about disease risk factors and the need to avoid and manage them through lifestyle changes and medications. However, long-term patient adherence to the recommended interventions remains a key unmet need. In this review we discuss the rationale and potential benefits of a paradigm shift in the clinician-patient encounter, from focusing on education to explicitly discussing key drivers of individual motivation. This incl...

OBJECTIVES To describe and evaluate outcomes in STEMI patients sustained on clopidogrel compared to those switched to ticagrelor following fibrinolysis. BACKGROUND World-wide, many STEMI patients cannot achieve timely PCI and therefore require fibrinolysis. Although comparable 30-day and 1-year safety was shown with clopidogrel or ticagrelor in the TREAT study, there is paucity of long-term outcomes in pharmacoinvasive treated STEMI. METHODS We conducted an observational cohort study evaluating ...

BACKGROUND The impact of new-onset atrial fibrillation (AF) after aortic valve (AV) surgery on mid- and long-term outcomes is under debate. Here, we sought to follow up heart rhythms after AV surgery, and to evaluate the mid-term prognosis and effectiveness of treatment for patients with new-onset AF. METHODS This single-center cohort study included 978 consecutive patients (median age, 59 years; male, 68.5%) who underwent surgical AV procedures between 2017 and 2018. All patients with postopera...

Background null Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a highly prevalent arrhythmia, with substantial associated morbidity and mortality. Circumferential pulmonary vein ablation (CPVA) is an effective rhythm control strategy, however, recurrence is an important factor influencing treatment decisions. null Hypothesis null To develop a predictive model based on left atrial (LA) structure and function, and evaluate its efficiency in predicting the recurrence of AF after CPVA. null Methods null Patients with ...
BACKGROUND The contribution of atrial and ventricular function in neurocardiogenic syncope (NCS) pathophysiology is elusive. HYPOTHESIS We assessed the influence of echocardiographic properties to the age of presentation and NCS recurrences. METHODS We assigned 124 patients with symptoms suggesting NCS, to those with syncope initiation at age 35 years (group B, n = 68). Echocardiographic indices were measured before head-up tilt test (HUTT). RESULTS A total of 55 had positive HUTT (44%) with a t...

INTRODUCTION Clinical guidelines recommend extended treatment with dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with ticagrelor 60 mg (twice daily) beyond 12 months in high-risk patients with a history of myocardial infarction (MI) who have previously tolerated DAPT and are not at heightened bleeding risk. However, evidence on patterns of use and associated clinical outcomes in routine clinical practice is limited. METHODS ALETHEIA is an observational, multi-country study, designed to describe characteristi...

Background null Recent reports have indicated the beneficial role of strain measurement in COVID-19 patients. null Hypothesis null To determine the association between right and left global longitudinal strain (RVGLS, LVGLS) and COVID-19 patients' outcomes. null Methods null Hospitalized COVID-19 patients between June and August 2020 were included. Two-dimensional echocardiography and biventricular global longitudinal strain measurement were performed. The outcome measure was defined as mortalit...

Background null The risk for subsequent major cardiovascular (CV) events among patients with very high-risk (VHR) atherosclerotic CV disease (ASCVD) remains to be fully elucidated. null Hypothesis null We assessed the characteristics and major CV event rates of patients with VHR versus non-VHR ASCVD in a real-world setting in the United States (US), hypothesizing that patients with VHR ASCVD would have higher CV event rates. null Methods null This was a retrospective cohort study conducted from ...
