  • Burnout Among Women Physicians: a Call to Action
    Curr. Cardiol. Rep. (IF 2.395) Pub Date : 2020-05-29
    Sherry S. Chesak, Susanne Cutshall, Alexandra Anderson, Bridget Pulos, Susan Moeschler, Anjali Bhagra

    Purpose of Review The purposes of this discussion are to describe what is known about burnout among women physicians and identify contributing factors, categories of impact, and methods for mitigating the phenomenon. The authors conclude with current gaps in research. Recent Findings Although there are a lack of investigations analyzing and reporting physician burnout data by gender, there is evidence

  • Role of Aspirin for Primary Prevention in Persons with Diabetes Mellitus and in the Elderly
    Curr. Cardiol. Rep. (IF 2.395) Pub Date : 2020-05-29
    Neha J. Patel, Ragavendra R. Baliga

    Purpose of Review To review the clinical evidence of the effect of aspirin as primary prevention for patients with diabetes mellitus and in healthy elderly. Recent Findings Two trials were performed to study these two patient populations: ASCEND showed that the use of low-dose aspirin in persons with diabetes, who did not have prior cardiovascular disease, led to a lower risk of cardiovascular events

  • Chest Pain Evaluation in the Emergency Department: Risk Scores and High-Sensitivity Cardiac Troponin
    Curr. Cardiol. Rep. (IF 2.395) Pub Date : 2020-05-29
    Joseph Gibbs, James McCord

    Purpose of Review As many as 10 million patients present annually to the emergency department in the USA with symptoms concerning for acute myocardial infarction. The use of risk scores for patients with chest pain or equivalent without ST-segment elevation on the electrocardiogram. The adaptation in the USA of high sensitivity troponin assays requires rethinking of how to best optimize troponin testing

  • Artificial Intelligence in Intracoronary Imaging
    Curr. Cardiol. Rep. (IF 2.395) Pub Date : 2020-05-29
    Russell Fedewa, Rishi Puri, Eitan Fleischman, Juhwan Lee, David Prabhu, David L. Wilson, D. Geoffrey Vince, Aaron Fleischman

    Purpose of Review This paper investigates present uses and future potential of artificial intelligence (AI) applied to intracoronary imaging technologies. Recent Findings Advances in data analytics and digitized medical imaging have enabled clinical application of AI to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs through better diagnosis and enhanced workflow. Applications of AI to IVUS and IVOCT have

  • Recent Advances in T1 and T2 Mapping in the Assessment of Fulminant Myocarditis by Cardiac Magnetic Resonance
    Curr. Cardiol. Rep. (IF 2.395) Pub Date : 2020-05-29
    P. Wheen, R. Armstrong, C. A. Daly

    Purpose of Review This review was undertaken to summarise recent data relating to T1 and T2 relaxation times in the assessment of myocarditis using cardiac MRI, and the effect new studies have had on the established diagnostic criteria, leading to recently proposed revised criteria for the cardiac MRI assessment of myocarditis. Recent Findings In 2018, updates to the 2009 Lake Louise Criteria (LLC)

  • SPECT Versus PET Myocardial Perfusion Imaging in Patients with Equivocal CT
    Curr. Cardiol. Rep. (IF 2.395) Pub Date : 2020-05-25
    Vasvi Singh, Marcelo F. Di Carli

    Purpose of Review The most pertinent clinical question in post-coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) patients is the assessment of the physiological significance of an anatomically identified stenosis. The clinical application of radionuclide MPI using single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) versus positron emission tomography (PET) in the evaluation and management of patients

  • Soluble ST2 and Soluble Markers of Fibrosis: Emerging Roles for Prognosis and Guiding Therapy.
    Curr. Cardiol. Rep. (IF 2.395) Pub Date : 2020-05-19
    Justin Sharim,Lori B Daniels

    PURPOSE OF REVIEW Biomarkers of cardiac fibrosis closely track the disease state that gives rise to heart failure. The purpose of this review is to highlight recent data on the use of soluble ST2, galectin-3, and procollagen, three markers of cardiac fibrosis, for aiding with prognostication, and to explore the use of these biomarkers for guiding therapy. RECENT FINDINGS Soluble ST2, galectin-3, and

  • Cardiac Surgery: Increasing Access in Low- and Middle-Income Countries.
    Curr. Cardiol. Rep. (IF 2.395) Pub Date : 2020-05-19
    Samuel Byiringiro,Naphtal Nyirimanzi,Joseph Mucumbitsi,Emmanuel Rusingiza Kamanzi,JaBaris Swain

    PURPOSE OF THE REVIEW Low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) have long-battled communicable diseases, and now, a rise in non-communicable diseases (NCD) is conferring tremendous burden in these areas. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the number one cause of death among NCDs across the globe. The current review provides insight regarding this disease burden and highlights challenges as well as

  • Cost-effectiveness and Outcomes with Early or Same-Day Discharge After Elective Percutaneous Coronary Intervention.
    Curr. Cardiol. Rep. (IF 2.395) Pub Date : 2020-05-19
    Santhosh K G Koshy,Lekha K George,Pranab Das

    PURPOSE OF REVIEW Shorter hospital stay after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) can provide economic advantage. Same-day discharge (SDD) after transradial PCI is thought to reduce the cost of care while maintaining the quality and safety. This review summarizes the current knowledge of the benefits and safety of this concept. RECENT FINDINGS Increase in rate of transradial PCI over the last

  • Advances in PET-Based Cardiac Amyloid Radiotracers.
    Curr. Cardiol. Rep. (IF 2.395) Pub Date : 2020-05-19
    Cesia Gallegos,Edward J Miller

    The gold standard for diagnosis of cardiac amyloidosis (CA) is endomyocardial biopsy showing Congo red staining followed by mass spectroscopy, but the diagnosis can also be made with high certainty by demonstration of typical cardiac imaging features along with amyloid on biopsy of another involved organ. The use of cardiac imaging techniques to detect amyloid deposits may frequently obviate the need
