BACKGROUND: The aim of the present study is to elucidate prognostic impact of temporal trends of non-surgical patients requiring intensive care over a 10-year period. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 4276 non-surgical patients requiring intensive care from 2012 to 2021 were enrolled. Patients' backgrounds, in-hospital management, and prognoses were compared between five groups [2012-2013 (n = 825), 2014-2015 (n = 784), 2016-2017 (n = 864), 2018-2019 (n = 939), and 2020-2021 (n = 867)]...

BACKGROUND: On-site computed tomography-derived fractional flow reserve (CT-FFR) is a feasible method for examining lesion-specific ischemia, and plaque analysis of coronary CT angiography (CCTA) is useful for predicting future cardiac events. However, their utility and association on a per-vessel level remain unclear. METHODS: We analyzed vessels showing 50-90 % stenosis on CCTA where planned revascularization was not performed after CCTA within 90 days...

BACKGROUND: The impact of very low baseline levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) on patients with coronary artery disease remains unclear. METHOD: We enrolled 39,439 patients of the pooled population from the CREDO-Kyoto registries Cohorts 1, 2, and 3. The study population consisted of 33,133 patients who had undergone their first coronary revascularization. We assessed the risk for mortality and cardiovascular events according to quintiles of the baseline LDL-C levels...

BACKGROUND: Children with intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) resistant Kawasaki disease (KD) are at higher risk of developing coronary artery (CA) aneurysm. Early identification of high-risk patients using a predictive tool would allow for earlier interventions to prevent cardiac complications. METHODS: Children with KD who were admitted to five selected hospitals in Malaysia between 2008 and 2018 and received 2 g/kg of IVIG within 10 days from the onset of illness were included...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between responsiveness to prehabilitation and postoperative recovery of physical function in cardiac surgery patients. METHODS: Ninety-three cardiac surgery patients (mean age: 76.4 years) were included in this retrospective cohort study. Preoperative physical function was measured using the Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB), and a prehabilitation exercise program was implemented for the SPPB domains with low scores...

BACKGROUND: Palliative care (PC) benefits cancer patients and those with heart failure (HF), improving quality of life and symptom burden. Despite guidelines recommending the integration of PC into HF care, its use remains inadequate, partly due to insufficient public awareness. This study aimed to assess the public awareness of PC for HF in Japan and identify factors associated with awareness. METHODS: A cross-sectional online survey was conducted from March 6-13, 2023, using a panel operated by Intage Inc...

Numerous studies have clarified the histological characteristics of the area surrounding the atrioventricular (AV) node, commonly referred to as the triangle of Koch (ToK). Although it is suggested that the conduction of electric impulses from the atria to the ventricles via the AV node involves myocytes possessing distinct conduction properties and gap junction proteins, a comprehensive understanding of this complex conduction has not been fully established. Moreover, although various pathways have been proposed for both anterograde and retrograde conduction during atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT), the reentrant circuits of AVNRT are not fully elucidated...

REVIEW
Takanori Yamaguchi
Atrial fibrillation (AF) substrate progresses with the advancement of atrial structural remodeling, resulting in AF perpetuation and recurrence. Although fibrosis is considered a hallmark of atrial structural remodeling, the histological background has not been fully elucidated because obtaining atrial specimens is difficult, especially in patients not undergoing open-heart surgery. Bipolar voltage reduction evaluated using electroanatomic mapping during AF ablation is considered a surrogate marker for the progression of structural remodeling; however, histological validation is lacking...

BACKGROUND: Secondary mitral regurgitation (MR) worsens in 10-15 % of heart failure (HF) patients receiving cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). Transcatheter edge-to-edge repair (TEER) with Mitra-Clip (Abbot Vascular, Santa Clara, CA, USA) therapy is associated with improved survival and decreased rates of hospitalization for HF in selected patients with secondary MR. Data on TEER outcomes in CRT-non-responders are limited. The purpose of this meta-analysis was to evaluate outcomes of mitral TEER with Mitra-Clip in CRT-non-responders...

BACKGROUND: Risk stratification for patients with non-ischemic cardiomyopathy (NICM) remains challenging as previous studies predicting life-threatening ventricular arrhythmia (LTVA) events were conducted before the establishment of the current standard treatment. We investigated the prognostic value of non-sustained ventricular tachycardia (NSVT) in NICM patients among recent studies. METHODS: MEDLINE, Embase were searched from January 2000 to October 2023. The risk of NSVT on LTVA and mortality was assessed using a random-effects model for patients with NICM...

BACKGROUND: There is a scarcity of data on the prevalence of abnormal findings on preprocedural computed tomography (CT) before aortic valve replacement (AVR) in patients with aortic stenosis (AS). METHODS: Among consecutive 593 patients with severe AS who were planned to undergo AVR, we evaluated the prevalence of clinically significant incidental noncardiac findings on preprocedural CT. Clinically significant incidental noncardiac findings were defined as newly detected abnormalities that required therapy, consultation for expert, further investigation, or clinical follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Multi-parametric assessment, including heart sounds in addition to conventional parameters, may enhance the efficacy of noninvasive telemonitoring for heart failure (HF). We sought to assess the feasibility of self-telemonitoring with multiple devices including a handheld heart sound recorder and its association with clinical events in patients with HF. METHODS: Ambulatory HF patients recorded their own heart sounds, mono‑lead electrocardiograms, oxygen saturation, body weight, and vital signs using multiple devices every morning for six months...

BACKGROUND: The adaptive cardiac resynchronization therapy (aCRT) algorithm enables synchronized left ventricular pacing (sLVP) to achieve fusion with intrinsic right ventricular activation. Although sLVP presents benefits over biventricular pacing, the adequate sLVP rate for better clinical outcomes remains unclear. We aimed to assess the association between sLVP rates and clinical outcomes. METHODS: Our study cohort included 271 consecutive patients, who underwent CRT implantation between April 2016 and August 2021...

BACKGROUND: The relationship between baseline yellow plaque (YP) and vascular response after stent implantation has not been fully investigated. METHODS: This was a sub-analysis of the Collaboration-1 study (multicenter, retrospective, observational study). A total of 88 lesions from 80 patients with chronic coronary syndrome who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention were analyzed. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and coronary angioscopy (CAS) were serially performed immediately and 11 months after stent implantation...
