Highlights

  • Coronary Artery Disease Screening With Carotid Ultrasound Examination by a Primary Care Physician

    In this study, we investigated the feasibility of primary care physicians using carotid ultrasound to perform coronary artery disease screening in asymptomatic patients with multiple coronary risk factors.

  • ALCAPA in an Octogenarian Woman: An Enigma

    ALCAPA syndrome (anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery) is an exceedingly rare disease but lethal with clinical expression from myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure to death during early infancy and rare survival to adulthood.

  • Unmet Needs in Anticoagulant Therapy: Potential Role of Rivaroxaban

    The new generation of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) have been welcomed as a convenient alternative to warfarin.

  • Chest Pain With Apical Diverticulum in the Absence of Coronary Disease

    Aneurysmal dilatation of segment of the left ventricle in the absence of coronary disease has been reported and termed diverticulum, which appears to be a congenital anomaly.

  • The Triply Twisted Heart: Cyanosis in an Adult With Situs Inversus, Levocardia, Double Outlet Right Ventricle, and Malposition of the Great Arteries

    We present a case of a 19-year-old female presenting with cyanosis since birth. The major anomaly demonstrated was a “triply twisted heart” with a balanced physiology, allowing her to survive into adulthood.

Postoperative Right Ventricular Failure in Cardiac Surgery

Two cases of patients that developed right ventricular failure (RVF) after cardiac valve surgery are presented with a narrative revision of the literature. RVF involves a great challenge due to the severity of this condition; it has a low incidence among non-congenital cardiac surgery patients, is more likely associated with cardiovascular and pulmonary complications related to cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), and is a cause of acute graft failure and of a higher early mortality in cardiac transplant.

Ping-Pong Mitral Stenosis: Left Atrial Myxoma With Mitral Stenosis and Pulmonary Hypertension in an Octogenarian

Left atrial (LA) myxoma presenting with symptoms of mitral stenosis in elderly males is very rare accounting for 10% of the cases. We report an 80-year-old male who presented with symptoms of orthopnea and palpitations and was subsequently found to have a large LA myxoma obstructing the mitral valve and causing pulmonary hypertension (PHT).

Chlorthalidone plus amiloride reduces the central systolic blood pressure in Stage 1 hypertension patients
Hypertension reduction strategies use blood pressure in the brachial artery as the primary endpoint. Individuals who achieve the target blood pressure reduction with antihypertensive treatment have residual cardiovascular risk attributed to the difference in pressure between the aorta and brachial artery. Antihypertensive treatment affects the intrinsic properties of the vascular wall and arterial stiffness markers and consequently the central pressure.

Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection: The Phantom Menace
We present a case of a 66-year-old lady with chest pain, without dynamic 12-lead electrocardiographic (ECG) changes and normal serial troponin. Coronary angiography revealed a linear filing defect in the first obtuse marginal branch of the circumflex artery indicating coronary artery dissection, with superadded thrombus. She was managed medically with dual antiplatelet therapy and has responded well. Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a rare cause of cardiac chest pain, which can be missed without coronary angiography.
