Finger ischemia in a young lady: expect the unexpected from a papillary fibro-elastoma
Anno:
2023
Case presentation: In December 2022, A 32-y old women presented to the emergency department of our institution for pain and acrocyanosis of the 3rd and 4th finger of the right hand, compared abruptly 10 hours before. Physical examination was otherwise normal, she was apyretic. Her previous medical history was…
RARE CASE OF A GIANT THYMIC CYST: A CHALLENGING DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS OF A PARACARDIAC CYSTIC LESION
Anno:
2023
Background: Benign thymic cysts are a rare clinical entity, representing approximately 3% of all mediastinal masses and can be congenital or acquired. We report a case of a 58-year-old female with a giant benign thymic cyst which entered in differential diagnosis with pericardial cyst and pericardial effusion. Case presentation:…
CTLA-4 and PD-1 blocking agents affects longitudinal and radial strain in preclinical models, increases systemic CXCL12, cardiac fibronectin EDA, S-100 calgranulin, galectine-3 and NLRP-3/MyD-88/chemokine pathways
Anno:
2023
Background: Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) have significantly changed the oncology clinic in recent years, improving survival expectations in cancer patients. ICI therapy have a broad spectrum of side effects from endocrinopathies to cardiovascular diseases. In this study, pro-inflammatory and pro-fibrotic effects of short-term ICIs therapy in preclinical models were…
Assessment of left ventricular global longitudinal strain in a population affected by cancer and in therapy with potentially cardiotoxic chemotherapy
Anno:
2023
Echocardiographic left ventricular global longitudinal strain (GLS) detects early subclinical ventricular dysfunction and can be used in patients receiving potentially cardiotoxic chemotherapy. The aim of this observational study is to analyse some echocardiographic (echo) features of patients affected by cancer evaluated in our laboratory. Methods: We studied patients who…
Radiotherapy and the heart: in search of Arianna’s thread
Anno:
2023
Background: Radiation therapy (RT) is widely diffused in the treatment of cancer; but it could lead to various negative consequences on the cardiovascular system, even several years after treatment end. They include also valvular heart diseases, arrythmias, coronary artery diseases, heart failure, pericardial diseases, systemic and pulmonary artery diseases….
Dapagliflozin increases pAMPK and reduces myocardial and renal NF-kB expression in preclinical models of short-term doxorubicin cardiotoxicity through MYD-188 and NLRP3 pathways
Anno:
2023
Background: Doxorubicin-mediated adverse cardiovascular events are among the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in breast cancer patients. Sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors have recently been shown to be of therapeutic value in patients with type 2 diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF),…
LEFT ATRIAL AND VENTRICULAR STRAIN, AND 3D-ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY FOR SUBCLINICAL CHEMOTHERAPY-RELATED CARDIAC DYSFUNCTION IDENTIFICATION IN PATIENTS WITH BREAST CANCER
Anno:
2023
Cardio-oncology is a recent rapid-developing multidisciplinary approach created by oncologists in accordance with cardiologists with the objective to minimize the adverse cardiovascular effects of contemporary cancer therapy and to maximize the benefits that can be obtained from it. Pre-treatment cancer therapy-related cardiovascular toxicity (CTR-CVT) risk assessment can be performed…
VERSAMENTO PLEURICO E PERICARDICO SEVERO: QUALE DRENARE PRIMA?
Anno:
2023
Introduzione In pz con neoplasia, un severo versamento pleurico e pericardico sono frequente riscontro. In questi pz il polmone non ha la capacità di riespandersi completamente per infiltrazione (“lung entrapment”), una toracentesi ad alto volume può causare un edema idrostatico da riespansione (REPO). REPO è una condizione rara, ad elevata mortalità e…
Heart failure during acute coronary syndrome and the long-term risk of cancer death. The ABC-9* Study on Heart Disease.
Anno:
2023
Introduction: Emerging evidence suggests that patients with coronary artery disease carry an increased risk of cancer death. Methods: To assess the association between heart failure (HF) during hospitalization with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and the very long-term cancer death risk, we enrolled 572 patients admitted with ACS to 3…
The effect of anthracycline chemotherapy on peak left atrial longitudinal strain: a metanalysis
Anno:
2023
Background: Currently there is a limited number of studies reporting atrial function, evaluated by peak left atrial longitudinal strain (PALS), among patients undergoing anthracycline chemotherapy. Objective: We investigated this issue through a meta-analysis of echocardiography studies that reported data on: A) PALS before and after anthracycline chemotherapy and B)…
