OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to construct and validate a nomogram model that predicts the remission of migraine attacks by screening factors that affect the prognosis of migraine patients with patent foramen ovale (PFO) after closure. METHOD: Retrospective analysis was conducted in migraine patients with PFO who underwent PFO closure in the Department of Cardiology of Jiangsu Province Hospital from September 2020 to April 2023. Based on the Migraine Disability Assessment (MIDAS) scores from the 1-year follow-up after PFO closure, all patients who met the inclusion criteria were categorized into a remission group and a non-remission group...

BACKGROUND: Guidelines recommend standard pre-operative cardiac screening in all liver transplantation (LT) recipients, despite the relatively low prevalence of obstructive coronary artery disease. Most LT recipients often have non-gated computed tomography (CT) performed of the chest and abdomen. This study evaluated the ability of coronary artery calcification (CAC) assessment on consecutively available scans, to identify a selection of low-risk patients, in whom further cardiac imaging can be safely withheld...

BACKGROUND: White matter hyperintensities (WMHs) represent diffuse small vessel disease implicating the cardiac, systemic, and cerebral vasculatures. As the brain may be the end-organ of cumulative vascular disease, and higher education is protective of both cardiovascular and brain health, we aim to clarify their intertwining relationships. METHODS: We evaluated participants (mean age = 64) from the UK Biobank with neuroimaging measures of WMHs, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) quantified using cardiovascular MRI, and arterial stiffness index (ASI) quantified using finger photoplethysmography...

BACKGROUND: Secreted glycoproteins of the Dickkopf (DKK) family modify Wnt signaling and may influence plaque destabilization but their modulation by statins in MI patients is not known. METHODS: We measured plasma DKK-1 and DKK-3 in patients with acute ST-segment elevation MI (STEMI) before percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and after 2 and 7 days and 2 months in patients receiving short-term high-dose (40 mg rosuvastatin, given before PCI; n = 25) and moderate dose (20 mg simvastatin, given the day after PCI; n = 34)...

BACKGROUND: Epicardial adipose tissue(EAT) is associated with inflammation in previous studies but is unknown in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction(STEMI).This study investigated the correlation between epicardial fat and inflammatory cells obtained by cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) and the effect on atrial arrhythmias in patients with STEMI. METHODS: This was a single-center, retrospective study. We consecutively selected patients who all completed CMR after Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) from January 2019 to December 2022 and then had regular follow-ups at 1, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months...

BACKGROUND: Predischarge risk stratification of patients with acute heart failure (AHF) could facilitate tailored treatment and follow-up, however, simple scores to predict short-term risk for HF readmission or death are lacking. METHODS: We sought to develop a congestion-focused risk score using data from a prospective, two-center observational study in adults hospitalized for AHF. Laboratory data were collected on admission. Patients underwent physical examination, 4-zone, and in a subset 8-zone, lung ultrasound (LUS), and echocardiography at baseline...

BACKGROUND: First-time detected atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with aggravated prognosis in patients admitted with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Yet, among patients surviving beyond one year after ACS, it remains unclear how the recurrence of AF within the initial year after ACS affects the risk of stroke. METHODS: With Danish nationwide data from 2000 to 2021, we identified all patients with first-time ACS who were alive one year after discharge (index date)...

INTRODUCTION: In patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, pulsed-field ablation has been developed as an alternative to thermal ablation. Three devices are currently available: Farawave by Boston, PulseSelect by Medtronic, and Varipulse by Johnson. In the present report, we studied the outcomes at 12 months of these three devices using indirect comparisons. METHODS: A standard PubMed search was conducted that identified all studies evaluating these devices in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation...

Arrhythmogenic Cardiomyopathy (AC), an inherited cardiac disorder characterized by myocardial fibrofatty replacement, carries a significant risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) due to ventricular arrhythmias. A comprehensive multimodality imaging approach, including echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR), and cardiac computed tomography (CCT), allows for accurate diagnosis, effective risk stratification, vigilant monitoring, and appropriate intervention, leading to improved patient outcomes and the prevention of SCD...

AIMS: To determine whether a family history of unexplained heart failure (HF) in first-degree relatives (children or sibling) increases the rate of unexplained HF. METHODS AND RESULTS: Using Danish nationwide registry data (1978-2017), we identified patients (probands) diagnosed with first unexplained HF (HF without any known comorbidities) in Denmark, and their first-degree relatives. All first-degree relatives were followed from the HF date of the proband and until an event of unexplained HF, exclusion diagnosis, death, emigration, or study end, whichever occurred first...

BACKGROUND: In patients with transposition of the great arteries and an arterial switch operation (TGA-ASO) right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) obstruction is a common complication requiring one or more RVOT interventions. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to assess cardiopulmonary exercise capacity and right ventricular function in patients stratified for type of RVOT intervention. METHODS: TGA-ASO patients (≥16 years) were stratified by type of RVOT intervention...

BACKGROUND: Programmed cell death 1 (PD-1) inhibitors can induce various adverse reactions associated with immunity, of which cardiotoxicity is a serious complication. Limited research exists on the link between PD-1 inhibitor use and pericardial effusion (PE) occurrence and outcomes. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study at the First Affiliated Hospital of Xi'an Jiaotong University from 2017 to 2019, comparing cancer patients who developed PE within 2 years after PD-1 inhibitor therapy to those who did not...
