    Published On: October 27, 2014 | Pages: 038 - 041

    Author(s): Haruhito Adam Uchida*, Hatsuzo Uchida and Jun Wada
    Background: We aimed to examine the acute effect of aliskiren on smoking-induced endothelial dysfunction in smoker. Methods: Nineteen male smokers were enrolled. After all participants smoked a cigarette, their endothelial function was assessed with brachial artery flow mediated dilation (FMD). An hour after the administration of aliskiren, they smoked again, thei ...

    Exercise Echocardiography in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    DOI Logo 10.17352/2455-2976.000009

    Published On: October 17, 2014 | Pages: 035 - 037

    Author(s): Jesus Peteiro* and Alberto Bouzas-Mosquera
    Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a relatively frequent genetic disease that affects 1/500 human beings. Main problems with this disease are the development of symptoms in 10-20% of affected individuals, and the increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in a subset of patients with the disease. It is important to clarify the cause of symptoms and to assess the r ...

    Potential Arrhythmogenic Risk of DDI/DDD Pacing Modes During Atrial Fibrillation

    DOI Logo 10.17352/2455-2976.000008

    Published On: September 25, 2014 | Pages: 033 - 034

    Author(s): Giacomo Mugnai*, Livio Bertagnolli and Ruggero Tomei
    In patients with paroxysmal-persistent atrial fibrillation (AF), DDI and DDD pacing modes can be used to assess the clinical burden of AF. This report shows how the DDI mode might trigger ventricular tachyarrhythmias during AF. This potential arrhythmogenic phenomenon should be carefully considered when programming a device in DDI (or DDD) mode in patients with AF. ...

    Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection and Implantation of Absorb Bioresorbable Drug-Eluting Stent in Cocaine-Related Acute Coronary Syndrome

    DOI Logo 10.17352/2455-2976.000007

    Published On: September 13, 2014 | Pages: 030 - 032

    Author(s): Roberto Ceravolo, Marco Vatrano, Giuseppe Dattilo, Alessandro Ferraro, Vincenzo Antonio Ciconte and Egidio Imbalzano*
    The spontaneous dissection of the coronary arteries (SCAD) is rare and few data are available in the worldwide literature. Several diseases and conditions have been associated with SCAD, such as atherosclerosis, connective tissue disorders and the peripartum episode. Cocaine addiction is one of causes of the disease in young patients. In this paper we present a case r ...

    Effect of Scatter, Attenuation and Resolution Correction on a Pediatric Myocardial Perfusion SPECT Image

    DOI Logo 10.17352/2455-2976.000006

    Author(s): Akiko Mogi*, Yasuyuki Takahashi, Kimiko Nakajima, Hiroshi Shimizu, Kyoko Saito and Ken-ichi Tomaru
    Scatter correction, attenuation correction, and resolution correction are commonly used to improve the quantify ability of a SPECT image. However, almost none of these are discussed specifically for the pediatric patient. This study aims to suggest practical image processing techniques to improve pediatric SPECT reconstructions. ...

    Endovascular Recanalization and Angioplasty of a Lengthy, 25 Years Old Superficial Femoral Artery Occlusion

    DOI Logo 10.17352/2455-2976.000005

    Published On: August 30, 2014 | Pages: 023 - 025

    Author(s): Florian Lüders*, Alfred Doku, Nasser Malyar and Holger Reinecke
    Introduction: Often physicians and patients believe that occluded vessels could not be recanalized because an occlusive lesion is too long or exists over a very long period. We report a successful recanalization of a lengthy, quarter-century old superficial femoral artery occlusion through a percutaneous transluminal angioplasty. ...

    Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy in Heart Failure: Rationale, Results, Indications, Limits and Perspectives

    DOI Logo 10.17352/2455-2976.000004

    Published On: August 04, 2014 | Pages: 017 - 022

    Author(s): Andrea Mazza, Sergio Valsecchi, Umberto Riva, Maria Grazia Bendini and Massimo Leggio*
    Heart Failure is the result of heterogeneous structural heart diseases, especially ischemic disease, and is becoming increasingly common in all Western countries. Many patients continue to be symptomatic in spite of progress in pharmacological therapy, and the risk of mortality remains high in the most advanced functional classes. Cardiac resynchronization therapy ... CrossMark Publons Harvard Library HOLLIS Search IT Semantic Scholar Get Citation Base Search Scilit OAI-PMH ResearchGate Academic Microsoft GrowKudos

    Background: A reverse left atrial (LA) remodelling after atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation has been reported and a relationship between diastolic function and AF is well known. However, there is little information about atrial remodelling and diastolic function after cavotricuspid isthmus (CTI) ablation. We aimed to evaluate long-term biatrial remodelling and diastoli ...

    Published On: July 07, 2014 | Pages: 007 - 010

    Author(s): Stefan Lönnerholm*, Helena Malmborg, Per Blomström and Carina Blomström-Lundqvist
    In recent years, new ablation catheters have been developed to facilitate atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation procedures, including the multi-electrode pulmonary vein ablation catheter (PVAC), capable of using different proportions of unipolar and bipolar energy. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the acute efficacy, as well as safety, when using the two differen ...
