BACKGROUND: Cancer patients are increasingly affected by chemotherapy-related cardiac dysfunction. The reported incidence of this condition vary significantly across different studies. HYPOTHESIS: A better comprehensive understanding of chemotherapy-related cardiac dysfunction incidence in cancer patients is imperative. Therefore, we performed a meta-analysis to establish the overall incidence of chemotherapy-related cardiac dysfunction in cancer patients. METHODS: We searched articles in PubMed and EMBASE from database inception to May 1, 2023...

BACKGROUND: Earlier studies showed a negative correlation between life's simple 7 (LS7) and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), but no association has been found between life's essential 8 (LE8), an improved version of LS7, and hs-CRP. HYPOTHESIS: This study investigated the association between LE8 and hs-CRP utilizing data from the National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey. METHODS: A total of 7229 adults were incorporated in our study...

BACKGROUND: We analyzed the influence of the QRS duration (QRSd) to LV end-diastolic volume (LVEDV) ratio on cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) outcomes in heart failure patients classified as III/IV per the New York Heart Association (NYHA) and with small body size. HYPOTHESIS: We proposed the hypothesis that the QRSd/LV size ratio is a better index of the CRT substrate. METHODS: We enrolled 114 patients with advanced heart failure (NYHA class III/IV, and LV ejection fraction >35%) who received a CRT device, including those with left bundle branch block (LBBB) and QRSd ≥120 milliseconds (n = 60), non-LBBB and QRSd ≥150 milliseconds (n = 30) and non-LBBB and QRSd of 120-149 milliseconds (n = 24)...

BACKGROUND: Electrocardiography (ECG) and 24 hours Holter monitoring (24 h-Holter) provided valuable information for premature ventricular and supraventricular contractions (PVC and PSVC). Currently, artificial intelligence (AI) based 2 hours single-lead Holter (2 h-Holter) monitoring may provide an improved strategy for PSVC/PVC diagnosis. HYPOTHESIS: AI combined with single-lead Holter monitoring improves PSVC/PVC detection. METHODS: In total, 170 patients were enrolled between August 2022 and 2023...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, the mortality of patients with AMI has not declined significantly. The relationship between blood pressure variability (BPV) and acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is unclear. We explored the relationship between 24-h BPV and mortality in patients with AMI. HYPOTHESIS: The mortality of patients with AMI is related to BPV. We hope to provide therapeutic ideas for reducing the risk of death in patients with AMI. METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort study...

BACKGROUND: Unlike diabetes, the effect of prediabetes on outcomes in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is not much investigated. We investigated the association between fasting glycemic status and major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events (MACCE) in patients with ACS undergoing PCI and had mid to long-term follow-up after coronary stenting. METHODS: Registry-based retrospective cohort study included ACS patients who underwent PCI at the Tehran Heart Center from 2015 to 2021 with a median follow-up of 378 days...

BACKGROUND: The association between Interdialytic home blood pressure variability (BPV) and the prognosis of patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) largely unknown. HYPOTHESIS: We proposed the hypothesis that interdialytic home BPV exert effect on cardiac and all-cause mortality among individuals undergoing MHD.

INTRODUCTION: The C-reactive protein (CRP)-troponin-test (CTT) comprises simultaneous serial measurements of CRP and cardiac troponin and might reflect the systemic inflammatory response in patients with acute coronary syndrome. We sought to test its ability to stratify the short- and long-term mortality risk in patients with non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). METHODS: We examined 1,675 patients diagnosed with NSTEMI on discharge who had at least two successive measurements of combined CRP and cardiac troponin within 48 h of admission...

OBJECTIVE: The knowledge, attitude, and practice (KAP) toward post-percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) self-management among Chinese patients remains unknown. This study investigated the KAP toward postoperative self-management among patients after PCI. HYPOTHESIS: Patients exhibit poor knowledge, attitudes, and practices regarding post-PCI self-management, requiring enhanced education strategies. METHODS: This cross-sectional study recruited patients after PCI at Jishuitan Hospital, Beijing, between November 2022 and May 2023...

BACKGROUND: High-frequency QRS (HF-QRS) manifests as a novel adjunct electrocardiographic marker with potential utility in coronary artery disease (CAD) detection. HYPOTHESIS: We hypothesize that HF-QRS analysis may be superior to conventional ST-segment analysis in detecting CAD, and the combination of these two analyses in the exercise stress test may enhance the diagnostic efficacy for CAD.

BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular events are increasing in patients with supranormal left ventricular ejection fraction (snLVEF). However, the effect of snLVEF in patients with aortic stenosis (AS) remains unclear, especially in patients with moderate AS.

BACKGROUND: Although using electrocardiogram (ECG) for pulmonary embolism (PE) risk stratification has shown mixed results, it is currently used as supplementary evidence in risk stratification. This cross-sectional study aimed to assess and compare ECG findings of massive and submassive PE versus segmental PE. METHODS: This cross-sectional study included 250 hospitalized patients with a confirmed diagnosis of acute PE from 2015 to 2020 in Southern Iran. Demographic variables, clinical data, troponin levels, on-admission ECG findings, echocardiography findings, and ECG findings 24 h after receiving anticoagulants or thrombolytics were extracted...

BACKGROUND: Catheter ablation has become one of the main treatment strategies in patients with premature ventricular complexes (PVC). The successful mapping and ablation can be performed with an ablation catheter without additional diagnostic catheters. HYPOTHESIS: We hypothesize that using a single catheter for PVC ablation may decrease complications, procedure time, and fluoroscopy exposure while maintaining comparable success rates. METHODS: Sixty-nine consecutive patients with PVC were treated with a single catheter approach compared to a historical cohort, in which a conventional setup was used...
