Rishi Vinod Lohiya, Manoj P Pethe
Pulmonary complications of long-term amiodarone use are well known. However, acute pneumonitis causing respiratory distress with short-term administration of amiodarone although rare is associated with high mortality. Early diagnosis and treatment with glucocorticoids significantly decrease associated mortality and morbidity. We are reporting one such case of amiodarone-induced pulmonary pneumonitis and its complete resolution with short-course glucocorticoid therapy. Thus, every clinician prescribing amiodarone should be well acquainted with this entity...

Glenn followed by Fontan are still the main two procedures for the treatment of patients with single ventricle. Some patients may be challenging due to unfavorable cardiopulmonary anatomy. In this report, we present Glenn shunt procedure in a patient with single pulmonary artery and congenitally agenetic lung.

We report the case of a 54-year-old female patient with a history of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who presented with dyspnea on exertion. Her pulsation on both arms was weak. Magnetic resonance (MR) angiography revealed Takayasu's arteritis (TA) characterized by multiple stenosis involving innominate, left common carotid, and left subclavian arteries. With regard to cardiac imaging, coronary computed tomography angiography revealed calcified stenosis of the left anterior descending and diagonal branch arteries, with an abdominal aorta narrowed concomitantly...

Ranolazine is a piperazine derivative approved as an antianginal. Primarily used as a second-line antianginal in stable coronary artery disease. Ranolazine blocks the late Na + current and prevents the rise of cytosolic calcium. It decreases myocardial wall tension and improves coronary blood flow. Ranolazine is effective in atrial fibrillation (AF) as an adjunct to electrical or pharmacological cardioversion. It can be used in combination with amiodarone or dronedarone. It has also been used in AF arising after coronary artery bypass grafting surgery...

Transcatheter closure of atrial septal defects (ASDs) using nickel titanium Naval Ordnance Laboratory (Nitinol)-containing devices (Amplatzer, AGA Medical, Golden Valley, Minnetosa) is being widely practiced. Controversies still exist regarding the release of nickel from these devices and the allergy and other ill effects of nickel and also the duration of antiplatelet therapy to aid endothelization of the device. Objective: To study the nickel levels in patients who underwent ASD closure with platinum-coated Nitinol-containing Amplatzer septal occluder...

Aim: The aim of this study is to describe the clinical characteristics of ambulatory patients with chronic heart failure (HF) in the Arabian Gulf and to examine several aspects including types of HF, causes, and adherence to management guidelines. Methods: Gulf documentation of ambulatory sick patients with HF (Gulf DYSPNEA) registry is a multicenter, cross-sectional study, recruiting adult ambulatory HF patients from 24 hospitals in five Arabian Gulf countries...

We present a 32-year-old woman with no morbidities who was admitted with a dilated cardiomyopathy and cardiac failure due to adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) which improved completely with surgical resection. Awareness regarding such rare presentations can avoid undue delay in diagnosis and management.

Venkatesan Kongunattan, N Ganesh
A radial artery pseudoaneurysm represents a rare, potentially catastrophic complication of arterial cannulation that has been reported after cardiac catheterization. Treatment options are limited to chemical, mechanical, and combined approaches to obliterate the radial artery pseudoaneurysm and tract. Manual compression protocols using the TR Band have been variableand anecdotal, without objective measurements of adequate compression, making this technique prone to failure (1). In this report, we present an efficient, safe, and noninvasive management for treatment of radial artery pseudoaneurysms that is cost-effective and efficient and ensures correction without occlusion of the radial artery...

Iatrogenic acute dissection of ascending aorta following coronary angiography and percutaneous intervention is a rare complication. Most reports involve localized aortic dissections as a complication of cannulation of a coronary artery with propagation into the ascending aorta. It is usually treated by sealing the intima with a stent in the ostium of the coronary artery or conservative management, while extensive dissections may require a surgical intervention. We describe a case of the subclavian dissection extending into the ascending aorta that occurred during diagnostic catheterization using the radial approach...

The combination of Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome and rheumatic mitral stenosis (MS) is rare in clinical practice. The management of this condition primarily depends on the clinical picture. We describe a 26-year-old male patient with no significant previous medical history and who came for a routine medical assessment before entrance to a police academy service. He was found to have rheumatic MS and WPW.

High-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) is widely used in Oman and other Gulf countries. The availability of newer generation hs-cTnT has increased the sensitivity of diagnosing non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (ACS). They utilize same antibodies as fourth-generation assay but can measure 10-fold lower levels of cTnT. Any detectable level above the 99th percentile of population suggests myocardial damage. However, the cause could be non-ACS. Therefore, the increase in sensitivity of hs-cTnT assays for ACS comes at the cost of a reduced ACS specificity because more patients with other causes of myocardial injury are detected than with previous cTnT assays...

Background: Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) is commonly prescribed to patients with a history of myocardial infarction (MI) or occlusive vascular events (e.g., stroke). Due to the complications associated with failure to follow aspirin usage guidelines, determining predictors of aspirin noncompliance in these patient populations is of clinical value and may help prevent poor outcomes. Methods: This cross-sectional study of all patients with a previously diagnosed MI was conducted over a period of 3 months from May 2015 to July 2015 at a government-based hospital in Karachi, Pakistan...

Background: Despite the availability of new potent medical therapies, the rate of progression of angiographic coronary artery disease (CAD) is not well described. The aim of this analysis is to describe the rate and predictors of progression of CAD among patients with recurrent symptoms. Materials and Methods: We reviewed 259 patients (mean age 61 ± 11 years, 70% males) who underwent two coronary angiograms between 2008 and 2013. Progressive CAD was defined as obstructive CAD in a previously disease-free segment or new obstruction in a previously nonobstructive segment...
