A well known cardiomyopathy behind a family drama: a case report
Anno:
2024
We report a case of a 55-years-old woman who came to our regional reference center for cardiomyopathies. Her cardiovascular risk factors were systemic arterial hypertension, dyslipidemia, family history of sudden cardiac death. Her first son -20 years old- had died of sudden cardiac death during a football match, at…
A case of arrhythmic mitral valve prolapse
Anno:
2024
Mitral valve prolapse (MVP) is a common valvular abnormality and the natural history of MVP is generally benign. However, MVP has been associated with an increased risk for arrhythmic sudden cardiac death (SCD). Moreover, ventricular and supraventricular arrhythmias are common in patients with MVP. Therefore, risk stratification for SCD…
Real-world single center experience with the wearable cardioverter defibrillator: sex differences in risk stratification for sudden cardiac death
Anno:
2024
Background: Wearable cardioverter defibrillator (WCD) demonstrated an important role for prevention of sudden cardiac death in patients with advanced heart failure and reduced left ventricular ejection fraction. Although in randomized trial there are no gender difference in WCD use and defibrillator (ICD) implantation rate, real world data in female…
Repolarization gradient causes local depolarization abnormalities in Brugada Syndrome
Anno:
2024
Background:Transmural voltage gradient in RVOT induces ECG-phenotype in Brugada syndrome(BrS). Moreover,RVOT depolarization abnormalities have been described as contributors to BrS phenotype and arrhythmogenesis. Purpose:To investigate the effect of ajmaline administration on J-elevation of RVOT unipolar signals in BrS patients. Moreover,we wanted to assess whether ajmaline-induced unipolar J-point elevation variations…
FIBROSIS QUANTIFICATION IN RISK STRATIFICATION OF HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY
Anno:
2024
Late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is the gold-standard modality to assess myocardial scar. The extent of myocardial fibrosis is proportional to the risk of adverse outcomes and LGE is ≥15% of LV mass is one of the criteria for prophylactic implantable cardioverted defibrillator. Currently, there are…
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…
