BACKGROUND: Lung ultrasound (LUS) is often used to assess congestion in heart failure (HF). In this study, we assessed the prognostic role of LUS in HF patients at admission and hospital discharge, and in an out-patient setting and explored whether clinical factors (age, sex, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and atrial fibrillation) impact the prognostic value of LUS findings. Further, we assessed the incremental prognostic value of LUS on top of AHEAD and MAGGIC clinical risk scores...

AIMS: Aortic valve calcification (AVC) of surgical valve bioprostheses (BP) has been poorly explored. We aimed to evaluate in-vivo and ex-vivo BP AVC and its prognosis value. METHODS AND RESULTS: Between 2011 and 2019, AVC was assessed using in-vivo computed tomography (CT) in 361 patients who had undergone surgical valve replacement 6.4±4.3 years earlier. Ex-vivo CT scans were performed for 37 explanted BP. The in-vivo CT scans were interpretable for 342 patients (19 patients [5...

BACKGROUND: Examining the systemic biological processes in the heterogeneous syndrome of heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF), as reflected by circulating proteins, in relation to echocardiographic characteristics, may provide insights into HF pathophysiology. OBJECTIVE: We investigated the link of 4210 repeatedly measured circulating proteins with repeatedly measured echocardiographic parameters, as well as with elevated left atrial pressure (LAP), in HFrEF patients, to provide insights into underlying mechanisms...

AIMS: Hypertensive patients of African-ancestry (Afr-a) have higher incidences of heart failure and worse clinical outcomes than hypertensive patients of European-ancestry (Eu-a), yet the underlying mechanisms remain misunderstood. This study investigated right (RV) and left (LV) ventricular remodeling alongside myocardial tissue derangements between Afr-a and Eu-a hypertensives. METHODS AND RESULTS: Sixty-three Afr-a and forty-seven Eu-a hypertensives underwent multi-parametric cardiovascular-magnetic-resonance...

AIM: We aimed to test the hypothesis if combining coronary artery calcium score (Ca-score) as a quantitative anatomical marker of coronary atherosclerosis with high-sensitive cardiac troponin as a quantitative biochemical marker of myocardial injury provided incremental value in the detection of functional relevant CAD (fCAD) and risk stratification. METHODS AND RESULTS: Consecutive patients undergoing myocardial perfusion SPECT (MPS) without prior CAD were enrolled...

AIMS: To assess the impact of adenosine on quantitative myocardial blood flow (MBF) in a rapid stress-rest protocol compared to a rest-stress protocol using 13N-ammonia positron emission tomography (PET) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) and to gain insights into the time dependency of such effects. METHODS AND RESULTS: Quantitative MBF at rest (rMBF), during adenosine-induced stress (sMBF) and myocardial flow reserve (MFR) were obtained from 331 retrospectively identified patients who underwent 13N-ammonia PET-MPI for suspected chronic coronary syndrome and who all exhibited no perfusion defects...

AIMS: Differentiating cardiac amyloidosis (CA) subtypes is important considering the significantly different therapies for transthyretin (ATTR)-CA and light chain (AL)-CA. Therefore, an echocardiographic method to distinguish ATTR-CA from AL-CA would provide significant value. We assessed a novel echocardiographic pixel intensity method to quantify myocardial calcification to differentiate ATTR-CA from phenocopies of CA and from AL-CA, specifically. METHODS AND RESULTS: 167 patients with ATTR-CA (n=53), AL-CA (n=32), hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (n=37), and advanced chronic kidney disease (n=45) were retrospectively evaluated...

AIMS: The atherosclerotic profile and advanced plaque subtype burden in symptomatic patients ≤45 years old have not been established. This study aimed to assess the prevalence and predictors of coronary artery calcium (CAC), plaque subtypes, and plaque burden by coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) in symptomatic young patients. METHODS AND RESULTS: We included 907 symptomatic young patients (18-45 years) from Montefiore undergoing CCTA for chest pain evaluation...

AIMS: To assess the current role of cardiac imaging in the diagnosis, management, and follow-up of patients with acute myocarditis (AM) through an European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging survey. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 412 volunteers from 74 countries responded to the survey. Most participants worked in tertiary centres(56%). All participants had access to echocardiography, while 79% and 75% had access to cardiac computed tomography (CCTA) and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR), respectively...

Traditional right ventricular pacing has been linked to the deterioration of both left ventricular diastolic and systolic function. This worsening often culminates in elevated rates of hospitalization due to heart failure, an increased risk of atrial fibrillation, and increased morbidity. While biventricular pacing has demonstrated clinical and echocardiographic improvements in patients afflicted with heart failure and left bundle branch block, it has also encountered significant challenges, such as a notable portion of non-responders and procedural failures attributed to anatomical complexities...

AIMS: Women with angina and non-obstructive coronary artery disease (ANOCA) have a heightened risk for cardiovascular events, and the pathophysiology for ischemic symptoms may be related to alterations in microvascular structure and function. We examined the use of breathing-enhanced oxygenation-sensitive cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (OS-CMR) using vasoactive breathing maneuvers to assess myocardial oxygenation in women with ANOCA. METHODS AND RESULTS: We recruited women (aged 40-65 years) from two sites in Canada who presented to healthcare with persistent retrosternal chest pain and found to have ANOCA, or without a history of cardiovascular disease...

AIMS: Left ventricular global longitudinal strain (LVGLS) is a known outcome predictor in transcatheter edge-to-edge repair (TEER) for functional mitral regurgitation (MR). We aimed to assess its prognostic yield in the setting of TEER for chronic primary MR. METHODS AND RESULTS: We conducted a single-center, retrospective analysis of 323 consecutive patients undergoing isolated, first-time procedures. Stratified by baseline LVGLS quartiles (≤-19%, -18.9-(-16)%, -15...

AIMS: Current assessment of myocardial ischaemia from stress perfusion cardiovascular magnetic resonance (SP-CMR) largely relies on visual interpretation. This study investigated the use of high-resolution free-breathing SP-CMR with automated quantitative mapping in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD). Diagnostic performance was evaluated against invasive coronary angiography (ICA) with fractional flow reserve (FFR) measurement. METHODS & RESULTS: Seven-hundred and three patients were recruited for SP-CMR using the research sequence at 3 Tesla...

PURPOSE: Firstly, to validate automatically and visually scored coronary artery calcium (CAC) on low dose CT (LDCT) scans with a dedicated calcium scoring CT (CSCT) scan. Secondly, to assess the added value of CAC scored from LDCT scans acquired during [15O]-water-PET myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) on prediction of major adverse cardiac events (MACE). METHODS: 572 consecutive patients with suspected coronary artery disease, who underwent [15O]-water-PET MPI with LDCT and a dedicated CSCT scan were included...
