MULTIDISCIPLINARY APPROACH TO A DIFFICULT CASE OF ACUTE HEART FAILURE DUE TO POSSIBILE ISOLATED CARDIAC SARCOIDOSIS
Anno:
2024
Background – Cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) is a rare, infiltrative cardiomyopathy that results from granulomatous inflammation affecting the heart with high morbidity and mortality. It is usually associated with a systemic (i.e. pulmonary) involvement, but lone heart involvement has been described. Even with extensive multidisciplinary evaluation making a firm diagnosis…
Long-term functional limitations on cardiopulmonary exercise testing in a cohort of patientis with emotions-triggered Takotsubo syndrome
Anno:
2024
Background. In patients with prior Takotsubo syndrome (TTS), long lasting functional cardiac limitations were described as compared with normal subjects. Emotions-triggered Takotsubo syndrome (E-TTS) has more favorable outcomes than TTS preceded by a physical trigger or by no identifiable factors. The aim of the present study was to assess…
Multidisciplinary project for delirium in CICU
Anno:
2024
Background Delirium could be considered a geriatric syndrome encompassing an array of neuropsychiatric symptoms, which represents a disarrangement of the cerebral function in response to one or more pathophysiological stressors. The prevalence of delirium is high even in Intensive Care Units, where this condition may reach 80% in patients…
Post-ROsc ecG pREdictS Survival after out-of hospital cardiac arrest. The PROGRESS score
Anno:
2024
BACKGROUND Prognostic assessment of patients following out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is critical to guide care after return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). The ECG acquired after ROSC in patients with OHCA has proven to be crucial not only for its diagnostic role but also for its prognostic purposes. Indeed, certain…
ECG screening, Heart Rate Variability and sudden cardiac death prevention in endurance athletes
Anno:
2024
Introduction Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is the leading cause of mortality in athletes during sport. Identifying non-invasive and repeatable risk markers during annual athletes screening remains a goal for the scientific community for the prevention of SCD. The Heart Rate Variability (HRV) has been shown to be an independent…
EFFECT OF SGLT2 INHIBITORS ON THE ARRHYTHMIC BURDEN IN HEART FAILURE
Anno:
2024
Background: Sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 inhibitors (SGLT2-i) have shown significant cardiovascular benefits in patients with and without type 2 diabetes mellitus, however, their potential beneficial effect on arrhythmic burden has been poorly investigated. Objective: this observational study explores the potential arrhythmic burden reduction in a cohort of heart failure (HF)…
A Rare Complication of mitral TEER procedure: Clip Late Detachment and Embolization
Anno:
2024
Intraprocedural and late complications of MitraClip implantation have already been described. This report highlights the importance of conventional surgical options in the event of percutaneous treatment failure. An 85-year-old woman with a history of chronic anemia, and thalassemia Minor was referred to our clinic for severe mitral regurgitation (MR)…
A RARE CASE OF INTERVENTRICULAR SEPTUM DUPLICATION
Anno:
2024
Case report: A 62-year-old man, history of hypertension. In 2015, there was suspicion of non-compaction cardiomyopathy, and he underwent cardiac MRI at another facility (report not available). The patient reported palpitations and dyspnea with exertion, leading to a follow-up visit. EKG showed sinus rhythm 90/min, nonspecific intraventricular conduction delay…
MECHANICAL PROSTHETIC MITRAL VALVE THROMBOSIS COMPLICATED BY AN ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME AFTER SYSTEMIC FIBRINOLYSIS: A CASE REPORT
Anno:
2024
The annual incidence of blocked mechanical valvular prosthesis (BMVP) is 0.3-5.7%. 78% of cases are due to thrombosis and development of pannus is the second more frequent etiology. The risk of thrombosis is higher for mitral prosthesis, during the 1st year after valve replacement, and for poor INR trend….
LEFT ATRIAL COMPRESSION BY HIATAL HERNIA IN A PATIENT WITH INTESTINAL OCCLUSION
Anno:
2024
Introduction A 93-year-old woman was admitted to the emergency department due to undifferentiated shock, she was unconscious and hypotensive. A 12-leads EKG was unremarkable except for sinus tachycardia. The patient was reanimated using volume filling. The objective examination showed cold and sweaty skin, the thoracic auscultation was normal and…
