The Show Must Go On: Using Proximie to Facilitate Collaboration between Experts to Perform a Complex Mitral Clip Procedure during COVID-19

F Sawaya, A Zgheib, JS Karim and N Hachach-Haram

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 12, 2020

As COVID-19 spreads across the globe at an alarming pace, clinicians of all specialties are being forced to re-evaluate how they can continue to deliver the best quality of care to their patients during this turbulent time. Although elective procedures have been canceled indefinitely in many countries, urgent interventional cardiology procedures are still being performed. The interventional suite during COVID-19, however, is almost unrecognizable. Interventional suites used to be a welcome setti...

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: June 12, 2020

Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of death among women of child bearing age in Northern Nigeria. As much as 60% of Peripartum Cardiomyopathy (PPCM) was reported among women with heart failures in a tertiary health institution in Sokoto, Northwestern Nigeria and was responsible for about 34% of deaths in peripartum women in South Africa. The Millennium and Sustainable Development Goals (MDG & SDG) 2000 to 2015 and 2015 to 2030, respectively have it as their cardinal quests, to reduce matern...

A Rare Case of End-Stage HF Salvaged by Rescue Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)

Yaser Khalid, DO, Neethi Dasu, DO, Kirti Dasu, BA, Paul Jang, DO and Vivek Sailam

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 06, 2020

End-stage heart failure (HF) is defined as a lack of improvement of HF symptoms and frequent exacerbations despite maximal medical therapy. Current guidelines recommend against the use of Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) as a rescue device in end-stage HF. CRT is a promising intervention for new-onset end-stage HF for patients who may be able to recover enough of their EF to restart goal-directed medical therapy (GDMT). This report highlights the promising clinical outcome of an unconvent...

Covid-19 Therapeutic Prospects: Cardiotoxicity Concerns

Olawale Adeyemi, BS, MD

Article Type: Commentary | First Published: June 03, 2020

There has been extensive research on developing a treatment regimen for COVID-19. Coadministering Chloroquine and Azithromycin have shown promising results in infected people. However, these medications have a peculiar side effect; QT prolongation. Physicians should be aware of the populations taking them and routine EKGs are recommended in these candidates. Since December 2019, there was an outbreak of a novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which was first reported in Wuhan, China. However, th...

Transcatheter Tricuspid Valve Replacement and Repair: Pooled Analysis of the Outcomes and Complications of Novel Emerging Treatments

Yaser Khalid, DO, Neethi Dasu, DO and Kirti Dasu, BA

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: June 01, 2020

Tricuspid regurgitation is a poor prognostic marker of end-stage heart failure. Treatment options for severe tricuspid regurgitation are currently limited because these procedures have the highest mortality rates of all valve procedures. Isolated tricuspid valve surgery is reserved for rare cases during surgical viability evaluation with repair favored over tricuspid valve replacement, owing to the slightly more favorable mortality and downstream complication associated with the latter. Transcat...

The Basic Four Measures and their Derivates in Dichotomous Diagnostic Tests

Tadeusz R Ostrowski, MD and Tadeusz Ostrowski, PhD

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: June 05, 2020

The paper focuses on four basic statistics of dichotomous diagnostic tests, i.e. sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive value, and some of their derivates, like Youden index and predictive summary index, and on further derivates of these derivates, i.e. Matthews correlation coefficient (or Yule phi), chi squared test and Cramer’s V coefficient. The paper contains also the necessary and sufficient conditions for a test to be invalid, to be uninformative and the necessary con...

Atypical Clinical Picture of Breast Cancer with Dominant Symptoms of Hematologic and Gastrointestinal Malignancies

Malwina Rybicka-Ramos, Grzegorz Kasiarz, Katarzyna Pluta, Tomasz Wilczynski, Jerzy Pruszynski and Ewa Ziolko

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 03, 2020

Gastrointestinal malignancy was suspected in a 68-year-old woman with long-term anemia, thrombocytopenia, leukopenia, the presence of fecal occult blood and elevated levels of CEA and CA 19- 9. However, malignancy was not confirmed. The patient was later hospitalized in the Department of Hematology where hematologic disease was excluded. Cervical and inguinal lymphadenopathy and atypical bone marrow cells collected by aspiration biopsy gave rise to the suspicion of bone marrow involvement by tum...

Sugammadex-Is Cost the Only Drawback?

Michael W Lew, MD and Joseph Chang, MD

Article Type: Letter to the Editor | First Published: June 04, 2020

Residual muscle paralysis is an important safety issue, with multiple studies demonstrating an association with increased postoperative complications. The pathophysiology of these complications isn’t difficult to explain. One can only imagine the signs and symptoms in an awake patient (i.e. the panic from not having the strength to take a deep breath or move at full strength; the anxiety of not controlling one’s body movement). A study by the Cleveland Clinic demonstrated that major complica...

The Usefulness of Long Inflation Balloon Angioplasty Using a Perfusion Balloon for Intracoronary Thrombus

Shingo Watanabe and Michio Usui

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 12, 2020

The beneficial effect of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) has been well established. PCI for ACS, especially for thrombotic lesions, is difficult to treat due to distal embolization or residual thrombus. We experienced a case in which long balloon inflation was effective in PCI for ACS due to thrombotic lesions. Here we introduce the case that long inflation balloon angioplasty using a perfusion balloon was useful in PCI for thrombus lesion....
