Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) and computed tomography (CCT) are advanced imaging modalities that recently revolutionized the conventional diagnostic approach to congenital heart diseases (CHD), supporting echocardiography and often replacing cardiac catheterization. This is the second of two complementary documents, endorsed by experts from the Working Group of the Italian Society of Pediatric Cardiology and the Italian College of Cardiac Radiology of the Italian Society of Medical and Interventional Radiology, aimed at giving updated indications on the appropriate use of CMR and CCT in different clinical CHD settings, in both pediatrics and adults...

AIMS: We aimed to comprehensively assess the safety and efficacy of mavacamten in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) patients. METHODS: A systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted, and efficacy [changes in postexercise left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) gradient, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), peak oxygen consumption (pVO 2 ), Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire Clinical Summary Score (KCCQ CSS), and the proportion of patients exhibiting an improvement of at least one New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional class from baseline)], safety (total count of treatment-emergent adverse events and SAEs, as well as the proportion of patients experiencing at least one adverse event or SAE), and cardiac biomarkers (NT-proBNP and cTnI) outcomes were evaluated...

AIMS: In recent years, extensive literature has been produced demonstrating inferior outcomes for women when compared with men undergoing heart valve interventions. Herein, we seek to analyze the literature comparing outcomes between men and women undergoing surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR). METHODS: A systematic literature search of PubMed, MEDLINE, and Embase was conducted for articles comparing differences in outcomes between adult men and women undergoing SAVR...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) on severely calcified coronary lesions is challenging. Coronary calcified nodule (CN) refers to an eccentric and protruding coronary calcification associated with plaque vulnerability and adverse clinical events. This study aims to conduct an extensive review of CNs, focusing on its prognostic impact in comparison with nonnodular coronary calcification (N-CN). METHOD: A systematic literature review on PubMed, MEDLINE, and EMBASE databases was conducted for relevant articles...

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...

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...

AIMS: Long-standing hypertension may cause an impairment in microvascular coronary circulation, which is involved in many different cardiac conditions. Renal sympathetic denervation (RDN) has been successfully proven as a valuable therapeutic choice for patients with resistant hypertension; moreover, the procedure looks promising in other settings, such as heart failure and atrial fibrillation, given its ability to downregulate the sympathetic nervous system, which is a recognized driver in these conditions as well as in microvascular dysfunction progression...

BACKGROUND: Diastolic dysfunction is a predictor of poor outcomes in many cardiovascular conditions. At present, it is unclear whether diastolic dysfunction predicts adverse outcomes in patients with atypical aortic stenosis who undergo aortic valve replacement (AVR). METHODS: Five hundred and twenty-three patients who underwent transcatheter AVR (TAVR) (n = 303) and surgical AVR (SAVR) (n = 220) at a single institution were included in our analysis...

AIMS: We present the experience and long-term results of intracardiac echocardiography (ICE)-guided closure of ostium secundum atrial septal defects (ASDs) in two Italian centers and investigate its systematic applicability as the gold standard in routine clinical practice. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated all consecutive patients who underwent an ASD percutaneous closure procedure from March 2008 to February 2020. All patients underwent a preprocedural transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) evaluation...

BACKGROUND: Traditional scores as CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-Vasc are suitable for predicting stroke and systemic embolism in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and have shown to be also associated with mortality. Other more complex scores have been recommended for survival prediction. The purpose of our analysis was to test the performance of different clinical scores in predicting 1-year mortality in AF patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS: CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-Vasc scores were calculated for AF patients of the BLITZ-AF register and compared to R2-CHADS2, R2-CHA2DS2-Vasc and CHA2DS2VASc-RAF scores in predicting 1-year survival...

Aortic stenosis is the most prevalent valvular heart disease requiring intervention, especially in the elderly population. Surgical aortic valve replacement and transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) are well established treatment options for symptomatic patients with severe aortic stenosis, as they provide a significant survival benefit. Aortic stenosis may have an important impact on patients' quality of life (QoL). However, advanced age, comorbidities and frailty may limit the beneficial effect of aortic stenosis interventions in terms of QoL...

BACKGROUND: New nonclinical parameters are needed to improve the current stroke risk stratification schemes for patients with atrial fibrillation. This study aimed to summarize data on potential cardiac imaging correlates and predictors of stroke or systemic embolism in patients with atrial fibrillation. METHODS: MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Web of Science were searched to identify all published studies providing relevant data through 16 November 2022. Random effects meta-analysis method was used to pool estimates...

AIMS: The use of sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors (SGLT2i) as a new class of drug in treating type 2 diabetes has expanded beyond its original framework. Positive results have been achieved in reducing symptoms in patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD). The aim of this article is to present an in-depth review of the basic principles of this class of medications and how it has brought benefits to patients affected particularly by heart failure. METHODS: Following a thorough PubMed search, this review includes 62 studies published between 2015 and 2023...
