BACKGROUND: Right ventricular dysfunction (RVD) and pulmonary hypertension have been recognized as two important prognostic features in patients with left side heart failure. Current literature does not distinguish between right heart failure (RHF) and RVD, and the two terms are used indiscriminately to describe pulmonary hypertension and RVD as well as clinical sign of RHF. Therefore, the right ventricle (RV) adaptation across the whole spectrum of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) values has been poorly investigated...

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is an important cause of heart failure and arrhythmias, including sudden death, with a major impact on the healthcare system. Genetic causes and different phenotypes are now increasingly being identified for this condition. In addition, specific medications, such as myosin inhibitors, have been recently shown as potentially able to modify its symptoms, hemodynamic abnormalities and clinical course. Our article aims to provide a comprehensive outline of the epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in the current era...

In the setting of an Ebstein's anomaly, a right-to-left shunt via a patent foramen ovale (PFO) may be the cause of a significant cyanosis. In these patients, the PFO closure is able to improve the arterial saturation. Furthermore, a partial closure is often recommended to obtain a reduction in the PFO right-left shunt without a significant impact on the right chamber hemodynamics. However, in some cases, a complex PFO anatomy may prevent an effective device closure. We describe the case of a patient with Ebstein's anomaly and a significant cyanosis due to a right-to-left shunt via the PFO wherein an effective partial PFO closure with a suture-mediated NobleStitch EL system was achieved in a setting of a complex PFO anatomy (large aneurismatic septum, long stiff tunnel, and hypertrophic septum secundum) after a failed device-closure attempt...

AIMS: In this study, we investigated a cohort of unselected patients with various indications for an implantable cardiac monitor (ICM). Our main objectives were to determine the incidence of arrhythmic diagnoses, both anticipated and incidental in relation to the ICM indication, and to assess their clinical relevance. METHODS: We examined remote monitoring transmissions from patients with an ICM at four Italian sites to identify occurrences of cardiac arrhythmias...

BACKGROUND: Atrioventricular block (AVB) is a frequent complication in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). Right apex ventricular pacing (RVP) represents the standard treatment but may induce cardiomyopathy over the long term. Left bundle branch area pacing (LBBAP) is a promising alternative, minimizing the risk of desynchrony. However, available evidence with LBBAP after TAVI is still low. OBJECTIVE: To assess the feasibility and safety of LBBAP for AVB post-TAVI compared with RVP...

Medical therapy of pericarditis should be targeted at its aetiology. Unfortunately, many cases of pericarditis remain idiopathic after a complete diagnostic workup. In such cases, empiric anti-inflammatory therapy for pericarditis is aimed at controlling symptoms and preventing recurrences. The aim of the present clinical review is to summarize published evidence, guidelines, and to provide tips and tricks for clinical management of acute and recurrent pericarditis.

Nasal vasoconstrictors are some of the most widely used over-the-counter drugs, considered by many consumers as relatively safe with few significant adverse effects. At recommended dosage, the drug produces local vasoconstriction in nasal mucous membranes. However, the use of such drugs has been linked to cardiovascular adverse effects, including hypertension, arrhythmias, prolongation of the QT interval, and angina pectoris.1 The various cardiovascular adverse effects may occur with both oral and nasal administration and after a single dose or prolonged treatment, without dose-effect and independently of vascular status and age...

AIMS: Three physical signs, namely tendon xanthomas, corneal arcus and xanthelasma, have been associated with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (heFH). The prevalence and clinical significance of these signs are not well established among contemporary heFH individuals. This study explored the frequency as well as the association of these physical signs with prevalent atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) in heFH individuals. METHODS: Data from the Hellenic Familial Hypercholesterolemia Registry were applied for this analysis...

Ischemic stroke prevention represents a crucial concern in health systems, being associated with high morbidity and mortality. Atrial fibrillation is associated with 15-20% of ischemic strokes, in the presence of thrombus in the left atrial appendage in 90% of patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. Oral anticoagulation represents the standard of care. However, left atrial appendage occlusions have been developed for selected patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. With regard to the latter, particularly, some important concerns have been raised on the selection of patients potentially amenable to the procedure, seemingly emphasizing a gap in knowledge, real-life clinical practice, and current management guidelines...

BACKGROUND: Literature data suggest high inter-study variability in mitral valve prolapse (MVP) prevalence among individuals with thoracic skeletal abnormalities (TSA). This systematic review aimed at estimating the overall prevalence of MVP in individuals with the most common TSA, including not only the oldest studies (before the year 2000) but also the most recent ones (after the year 2000). METHODS: PubMed and EMBASE databases were systematically reviewed in November 2023...
