BACKGROUND: Numerous studies have validated a 5-year warranty period for heart health in Western populations with a coronary artery calcium (CAC) score of zero. While the calcium score is a crucial cardiovascular risk indicator, its interpretation in Asian populations remains unclear. This meta-analysis aimed to clarify the uncertainty surrounding the prevalence, warranty period, and prognostic implications of zero CAC scores in Asian populations. It also examined the impact of sex on subclinical CAC progression...

BACKGROUND: A subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) is an alternative to a transvenous implantable cardio defibrillator (TV-ICD). An S-ICD reduces the risk of transvenous lead placement. However, further research is required to determine how S-ICDs affect patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). In this study, we investigated the comparative efficacy and safety of S-ICDs versus TV-ICDs in HCM. METHODS: On December 6th , 2023, we performed a comprehensive search of the PubMed, Embase, Scopus, and Cochrane databases to identify randomized clinical trials (RCTs) and observational studies comparing S-ICDs with TV-ICDs in HCM patients published from 2004 until 2023...

BACKGROUND: Vascular inflammation plays a crucial role in the development of atherosclerosis and atherosclerotic plaque rupture resulting in acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Pericoronary adipose tissue (PCAT) attenuation quantified from routine coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) has emerged as a promising non-invasive imaging biomarker of coronary inflammation. However, a detailed understanding of the natural history of PCAT attenuation is required before it can be used as a surrogate endpoint in trials of novel therapies targeting coronary inflammation...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have suggested that adequate myocardial reperfusion after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) can improve the inhomogeneity of myocardial repolarization. However, it remains unclear whether no-reflow (NR) following emergency PCI involves disadvantages related to ventricular repolarization indices. The present study aimed to determine the effect of NR on QT dispersion (QTd) in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and to evaluate the prognostic value of the relative reduction of QTd on ventricular arrhythmia events (VAEs)...

BACKGROUND: Venous malformation (VM) is the most frequent type of congenital vascular malformation. In terms of functional outcome local sclerotherapy remains the most important therapeutic tool. For planning and correct estimation and prevention of complications, an exact anatomical classification of the VM is crucial. Not only the drainage, as assessed in the established classification, but also the phlebographic aspect of the internal VM structure itself plays a decisive role. In order to integrate this aspect, we aim to validate a proposal for a revised phlebographic VM classification distinguishing non-lacunar (a) and lacunar (b) types...
