  • Arrhythmias at the Munich Octoberfest: ECG under the influence?
    Eur. Heart J. (IF 19.651) Pub Date : 2017-09-14
    Moritz F. Sinner, Stefan Brunner

    The Munich Octoberfest is a well-known traditional public festival celebrated annually in Munich, Germany. The 184th anniversary—from 16 September to 3 October 2017—is rapidly approaching. During its 16 days duration, it will again attract 6–7 million visitors from near and far who will consume over 7 million litres of beer.1 Whereas most visitors drink responsibly, some exaggerate by binge drinking: out of 6478 patient contacts with the on-site emergency medical service in 2015, 609 were for excessive alcohol consumption requiring medical attention.2

    In the previous article of this series, in the immediately preceding CardioPulse, we looked at the Impact Factor (IF), noted its flaws, and discussed where it is valuable. The key message was that rather than a reductionist approach of trying to find one single perfect metric, we are better served by looking at a variety of measures geared toward the question being asked.

    Systemic immune-mediated diseases (SIDs) include autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases (AD) affecting at least two-organ systems.1 Autoinflammatory diseases refer to a growing family of conditions characterised by episodes of unprovoked inflammation in the absence of high autoantibody titres or auto reactive T lymphocytes, reflecting a primary innate immune system dysfunction.1 Conversely, autoimmune diseases are characterised by aberrant B, T and dendritic cell responses, leading to a break in tolerance against self-antigens, with predominantly cell-mediated or autoantibody-mediated responses in genetically susceptible individuals.2–11 Autoantibodies (AAbs), when detectable, can promote inflammatory responses via immune complex formation and may directly affect target organ function,10 e.g. resulting, in cardiac autoimmunity, in electrical disturbance, cardiomyocyte dysfunction or loss and heart failure.12–15 However, a dichotomous classification does not reflect clinical evidence and...

  • Cardiac manifestations of sarcoidosis: diagnosis and management
    Eur. Heart J. (IF 19.651) Pub Date : 2016-07-28
    David H. Birnie, Riina Kandolin, Pablo B. Nery, Markku Kupari

    Approximately 5% of patients with sarcoidosis will have clinically manifest cardiac involvement presenting with one or more of ventricular arrhythmias, conduction abnormalities, and heart failure. Cardiac presentations can be the first (and/or an unrecognized) manifestation of sarcoidosis in a variety of circumstances. Cardiac symptoms are usually dominant over extra-cardiac as most patients with clinically manifest disease have minimal extra-cardiac disease and up to two-thirds have isolated cardiac sarcoidosis (CS). It is estimated that another 20–25% of pulmonary/systemic sarcoidosis patients have asymptomatic cardiac involvement (clinically silent disease). The extent of left ventricular dysfunction seems to be the most important predictor of prognosis among patients with clinically manifest CS. In addition, the extent of myocardial late gadolinium enhancement is emerging as an important prognostic factor. The literature shows some controversy regarding outcomes for patients with clinically silent CS and larger studies are needed. Immunosuppression therapy (usually with corticosteroids) has been suggested for the treatment of clinically manifest CS despite minimal data supporting it. Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography imaging is often used to detect active disease and guide immunosuppression. Patients with clinically manifest disease often need device therapy, typically with implantable cardioverter defibrillators.

    Mitral annulus calcification is a common degenerative disorder in the elderly, being more prevalent in patients with renal failure and in women. Caseous calcification is a rare variant characterized by a putty-like material surrounded by a calcified envelope. This disease is considerated a benign lesion; however, due to its active chronic inflammatory process, calcification can expand to adjacent structures.

  • The management of antiplatelet therapy in acute coronary syndrome patients with thrombocytopenia: a clinical conundrum
    Eur. Heart J. (IF 19.651) Pub Date : 2017-09-08
    Cian P. McCarthy, Gabriel Steg, Deepak L. Bhatt

    Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) consisting of aspirin and a P2Y12 receptor antagonist is a fundamental component of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) management, with longstanding endorsements by both the American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF)/American Heart Association (AHA) and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).1,2 Dual antiplatelet therapy reduces the risk of both stent thrombosis and spontaneous ischaemic events, at the cost of an increased bleeding risk.3,4 The management of antiplatelet therapy in ACS patients with thrombocytopenia poses a particular challenge for physicians, as they are at higher risk of both bleeding and, paradoxically, ischaemic events.5 Unfortunately, there are currently no guideline recommendations or consensus reports to guide clinicians on the management of this cohort. In this setting, we examine the evidence to date and provide our opinion on future directions and management strategies for this group (Figure 1).

  • Fructose metabolism, cardiometabolic risk, and the epidemic of coronary artery disease
    Eur. Heart J. (IF 19.651) Pub Date : 2017-09-07
    Peter Mirtschink, Cholsoon Jang, Zoltan Arany, Wilhelm Krek

    Despite strong indications that increased consumption of added sugars correlates with greater risks of developing cardiometabolic syndrome (CMS) and cardiovascular disease (CVD), independent of the caloric intake, the worldwide sugar consumption remains high. In considering the negative health impact of overconsumption of dietary sugars, increased attention is recently being given to the role of the fructose component of high-sugar foods in driving CMS. The primary organs capable of metabolizing fructose include liver, small intestine, and kidneys. In these organs, fructose metabolism is initiated by ketohexokinase (KHK) isoform C of the central fructose-metabolizing enzyme KHK. Emerging data suggest that this tissue restriction of fructose metabolism can be rescinded in oxygen-deprived environments. In this review, we highlight recent progress in understanding how fructose metabolism contributes to the development of major systemic pathologies that cooperatively promote CMS and CVD, reference recent insights into microenvironmental control of fructose metabolism under stress conditions and discuss how this understanding is shaping preventive actions and therapeutic approaches.

    Maayan Konigstein, Francesco Giannini, Shmuel Banai

    Despite available pharmacological and interventional therapies, refractory angina is a common and disabling clinical condition, and a major public health problem, which affects patients’ quality-of-life, and has a significant impact upon health care resources. Persistent angina is common not only in patients who are not good candidates for revascularization, but also in patients following successful revascularization. Clearly, there is a need for additional treatment options for refractory angina beyond currently available pharmacological and interventional therapies. It is of pivotal importance, in this condition, to practice a patient-centred health assessment approach, measuring success of a new therapy by its effects on patients’ symptoms, functional status, and quality-of-life, rather than hard clinical endpoints as used in clinical studies. The coronary sinus Reducer is a novel technology designed to reduce disabling symptoms and improve quality-of-life of patients suffering from refractory angina. This review serves to update the clinician as to current evidence and future perspectives of the optimal utilization of this innovative technology.

  • The definition of the Brugada syndrome
    Eur. Heart J. (IF 19.651) Pub Date : 2017-08-31
    Juan Sieira, Pedro Brugada

    Brugada syndrome (BS) is an inherited disease characterized by a coved-type ST-segment elevation in the right precordial leads and increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD), in the absence of structural abnormalities. The cornerstone of BS diagnosis and definition, is its characteristic ECG pattern that can be present spontaneously or unmasked by drugs. Brugada syndrome was first described 25 years ago; paradoxically, in an era of great technological development, a new syndrome was described with a technology developed almost a century before. Great scientific knowledge has been gathered since the description of the syndrome. The better understanding of its pathophysiology and genetic basis has led to several modifications in its definition. Despite these facts, the essential, the description of the specific ECG pattern has remained almost unchanged since the initial report. In this article, we present the definition of the BS, the rationale behind it and our thoughts about its future.

    Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), both non-selective and selective cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors, are among the most widely prescribed drugs worldwide, but associate with increased blood pressure (BP) and adverse cardiovascular (CV) events. PRECISION-ABPM, a substudy of PRECISION was conducted at 60 sites, to determine BP effects of the selective COX-2 inhibitor celecoxib vs. the non-selective NSAIDs naproxen and ibuprofen.

  • The role of cardiologists in stroke prevention and treatment: position paper of the European Society of Cardiology Council on Stroke

    Stroke is a vascular disease with cerebral consequences, where the heart is a key player. It is defined as ‘a clinical syndrome typified by rapidly developing signs of focal or global disturbance of cerebral functions, lasting more than 24 h or leading to death, with no apparent causes other than of vascular origin’.1The incidence of stroke varies between 100–400 per 100 000 per year2 and mortality ranks second after coronary heart disease.3 Beyond mortality stroke is the largest single cause of physical disability in adults, second cause of dementia (after Alzheimer disease), major cause of depression, falls and epilepsy in the elderly. Stroke hence presents a tremendous burden both on patients as well as families and health care systems. Despite decreasing mortality rates in recent...

  • Report of an ESC-EAPCI Task Force on the evaluation and use of bioresorbable scaffolds for percutaneous coronary intervention: executive summary
    Eur. Heart J. (IF 19.651) Pub Date : 2017-08-28

    A previous Task Force of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI) provided a report on recommendations for the non-clinical and clinical evaluation of coronary stents. Following dialogue with the European Commission, the Task Force was asked to prepare an additional report on the class of devices known as bioresorbable scaffolds (BRS). Five BRS have CE-mark approval for use in Europe. Only one device—the Absorb bioresorbable vascular scaffold—has published randomized clinical trial data and this data show inferior outcomes to conventional drug-eluting stents (DES) at 2–3 years. For this reason, at present BRS should not be preferred to conventional DES in clinical practice. The Task Force recommends that new BRS devices should undergo systematic non-clinical testing according to standardized criteria prior to evaluation in clinical studies. A clinical evaluation plan should include data from a medium sized, randomized trial against DES powered for a surrogate end point of clinical efficacy. Manufacturers of successful devices receive CE-mark approval for use and must have an approved plan for a large-scale randomized clinical trial with planned long-term follow-up.

    High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol concentrations are inversely associated with cardiovascular disease and mortality across a range of concentrations, but genetic evidence suggest that extreme high concentrations may paradoxically lead to more cardiovascular disease. We tested the hypothesis that extreme high concentrations of HDL cholesterol are associated with high all-cause mortality in men and women.

    As promising compounds to lower Lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)) are emerging, the need for a precise characterization and comparability of the Lp(a)-associated cardiovascular risk is increasing. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the distribution of Lp(a) concentrations across the European population, to characterize the association with cardiovascular outcomes and to provide high comparability of the Lp(a)-associated cardiovascular risk by use of centrally determined Lp(a) concentrations.

    Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) has emerged as a promising therapeutic target for the treatment of hypercholesterolaemia and atherosclerosis. PCSK9 binds to the low density lipoprotein receptor and enhances its degradation, which leads to the reduced clearance of low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDLc) and a higher risk of atherosclerosis. In this study, the AT04A anti-PCSK9 vaccine was evaluated for its therapeutic potential in ameliorating or even preventing coronary heart disease in the atherogenic APOE*3Leiden.CETP mouse model.
