Aims The purpose of this study was to compare the noninvasive assessment of severity of pulmonary regurgitation with Doppler echocardiography versus cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) in adult patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rTOF).
Background Increase in vascular permeability and multiorgan dysfunction after cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) are barriers to successful cardiac surgery in infants. Complement inhibition with TP10, a C3/C5 convertase inhibitor (AVANT Immunotherapeutics, Needham, Mass), blunts post-CPB organ...
Background Coronary perforation is a serious but uncommon complication of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality.
Background β-Blockers have been shown incontrovertibly to improve morbidity and survival in patients with heart failure. However, there is limited information regarding their use in clinical practice settings, and reasonable utilization targets for quality improvement initiatives have not been...
Patients receiving chronic anticoagulation therapy pose a clinical challenge when therapy needs to be interrupted for surgical or invasive procedures. Maintaining anticoagulation places them at risk for serious bleeding complications, whereas discontinuing anticoagulation puts them at risk of...
Background Microvascular blood flow alterations may impair tissue oxygenation and may participate in the development of multiple organ failure in patients with severe heart failure. We hypothesized that microvascular blood flow alterations are present in patients with severe heart failure and...
Background Plasma levels of brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) are increased in patients with left heart failure. In patients with severe pulmonary embolism (PE), primary right ventricular (RV) dysfunction is frequent. Little is known about BNP secretion in acute RV failure.
Background Atrial fibrillation (AF) currently represents a major economic burden for society. Very few studies have been performed to evaluate the cost of care for AF patients. This study is a large prospective survey designed to analyze the different cost drivers in the treatment of these...
Background The use of arteriotomy closure devices (CDs) to achieve hemostasis after femoral artery access in percutaneous coronary intervention is steadily increasing. However, the safety information with these devices in the era of triple antiplatelet therapy is limited.
