Ivabradine is generally considered to be a safe drug with well-established and substantial benefits. Nevertheless, recently published results from the SIGNIFY trial suggest that ivabradine has rather inconsistent effects on cardiovascular outcomes. In addition, careful examination of all available data from ivabradine trials reveals signals of harm that have not ...

In an effort to improve outcomes in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), percutaneous ventricular assist devices (PVADs) have been investigated in (1) high-risk PCI, (2) acute myocardial infarction (AMI) complicated by cardiogenic shock (CS) and (3) in AMI without CS. PCI has become an increasing complex due to an ageing population ...

Left ventricular non compaction (LVNC) is a cardiomyopathy due to an arrest of the normal development of myocardium which determines the persistence of foetal myocardium in post--natal life in at least 2/3 of the wall (criterion known as non compacted/ compacted ratio greater than 2). Although in absence of a ...

The zebrafish heart regenerates after various severe injuries. Common processes of heart regeneration are cardiomyocyte proliferation, activation of epicardial tissue, and neovascularization. In order to further characterize heart regeneration processes, we introduced milder injuries and compared responses to those induced by ventricular apex resection, a widely used injury method. We ...

During chronic hypertension, increases in heart rate (HR) or adrenergic stimulation are associated with maladaptive left ventricular responses as isovolumic contraction and relaxation durations failed to reduce, impeding filling. We, therefore, investigated the effects of acute selective HR reduction with ivabradine on left ventricular dysfunction during chronic hypertension. Accordingly, chronically ...

The benefits of early perfusion in ST elevation myocardial infarctions (STEMI) are established; however, early perfusion of non-ST elevation myocardial infarctions has not been shown to be beneficial. In addition, ST elevation (STE) caused by conditions other than acute ischemia is common. Non-ischemic STE may be confused as STEMI, but ...

The Medtronic LINQ™ was inserted in an 11-month-old boy for close monitoring of rapid ventricular tachycardia. The device is much smaller than the conventional Medtronic loop recorder. The real advantage of the LINQ™ is that it automatically notifies Carelink if any ventricular tachycardia is seen, which is very advantageous for ...

Acute myocardial infarction and congestive cardiac failure are characterized by high levels of cardiac sympathetic drive. Under these conditions additional sympathetic neurotransmitters such as neuropeptide-Y can be released in addition to norepinephrine and plasma levels correlate with infarct size and mortality. Even in the presence of beta-blockers, NPY is able ...

Persistence or development of ECG left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) by Cornell product criteria is associated with an increased risk of developing heart failure compared with regression or continued absence of LVH. We postulated that this association might be in part mediated via worse left ventricular systolic function in patients with ...

Advanced heart failure describes the subset of heart failure patients refractory to conventional medical therapy. For some advanced heart failure patients, the use of mechanical circulatory support provides an intermediary "bridge" step for transplant eligible patients or an alternative therapy for transplant ineligible patients. Over the past 20 years, clinical ...

Abstract Cardiac troponin (cTn) I and T are released from myocardial cells following necrosis, i.e., cell death. An accurate measure of cTn concentrations in a patient's blood following ischemia/chest pain can enable providers to determine whether or not a myocardial infarction (MI) has occurred. Point-of-care (POC) devices that measure blood ...

In animal models of heterotopic transplantation, mechanical unloading of the normal, nonhypertrophic heart results in atrophy. Primarily on the basis of these animal data, the notion that chronic left ventricular assist device (LVAD)-induced unloading will result in atrophy has dominated the clinical heart failure field, and anti-atrophic drugs have been used ...

Evidence as to how ACE inhibitors attenuate ischemia-reperfusion injury (IR) after cardioplegic arrest remains scarce. Twenty-four rabbit hearts were perfused on a Langendorff apparatus. Control hearts (n = 6) were arrested with pure histidine-tryptophan-ketoglutarate (HTK)-Bretschneider. Treatment groups received added to the cardioplegic solution (n = 6) captopril (100 μmol/l) and losartan (100 μmol/l) for selective AT1-receptor ...

Intravenous nitroglycerin is a well-known, but underused, treatment for acute decompensated heart failure. Nitroglycerin has a rapid onset of action and short half-life and there is a clear dose-response curve on both global hemodynamics and peripheral circulation. IV nitroglycerin reduces LV and RV filling pressures and afterload. In the case ...

Various studies have attempted to identify super-responders to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) by echocardiographic parameters of reverse remodeling. However, scientific evidence regarding those parameters is scarce. This study aimed at validating the definition of super-response to CRT based on the following frequently employed echocardiographic parameters: left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), ...

Optimal delivery of CRT requires appropriate patient selection and device implantation. Echocardiographic predictors of CRT response individually appear to enhance patient selection, but do not fully reflect the complex underlying myocardial dysfunction. We hypothesized that a multiparametric approach would offer greater predictive value and sought to derive a score incorporating ...

Rationale: Shortly after birth, muscle cells of the mammalian heart lose their ability to divide. Thus, they are unable to effectively replace dying cells in the injured heart. The recent discovery that the transcriptional co-activator Yap is necessary and sufficient for cardiomyocyte proliferation has gained considerable attention. However, the upstream ...
