Off-Pump Heartmate Ii Exchange In A Patient With Severe Lower Extremity Peripheral Artery Disease: A Case Report, Mehmet H. Akay, Ismael A. Salas De Armas, Manish K. Patel, Rajko Radovancevic, Igor D. Gregoric

The VAD Journal

Thrombosis of left ventricular assist device (LVAD) pumps is a serious complication that often requires exchange of the device. A 66-year-old man with severe peripheral vascular disease presented with pump thrombosis of the HeartMate II (HMII) LVAD 1.5 years after implantation. The HMII was exchanged to another HMII through a subcostal incision and without the use of cardiopulmonary bypass. For safety, the patient was prepared for cardiopulmonary bypass by exposing the right subclavian artery and insertion of a 5 FR cannula in the left common femoral vein. The pump was exchanged through a subcostal incision made over the LVAD ...

Background:

Chemotherapy-related cardiotoxicity (CTRC) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality in long-term cancer survivors. Left ventricular [LV] Global longitudinal strain (GLS) is a sensitive parameter that can be used for earlier detection of contractile function changes in these patients. Recent literature suggested certain genotypes may influence CTRC. Our goal was to assess longitudinal myocardial function and identify any correlation between certain genetic variations and LV function regarding CTRC in our pediatric population.

Methods:

50 subjects ≥10 years of age who have survived >2 years after completion of cancer treatment were enrolled out of which 29 subjects agreed for genetic ...

Abstract

Background

Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common birth defect and affects almost 1% of all live births. Treatment anxiety is common among children with CHD who undergo multiple procedures early in their lifetime. Dramatically increased life spans for this cardiac population has led to a shift from focusing on survival to their long-term health outcomes.

Methods:

Administration of the Peds QL Cardiac Module 3.0 assesses health related quality of life (HRQOL) during annual visits to a Cardiac Neurodevelopmental (ND) Clinic by evaluating the level of Treatment Anxiety a patient experiences during healthcare appointments. The questionnaire scores ...


Identifying Opportunities For Implementing Home Blood Pressure Monitoring In Newly Diagnosed Or Worsening Hypertension At A Family Health Clinic, Catherine Liikala 2021 University of San Diego

Identifying Opportunities For Implementing Home Blood Pressure Monitoring In Newly Diagnosed Or Worsening Hypertension At A Family Health Clinic, Catherine Liikala

Doctor of Nursing Practice Final Manuscripts

Abstract

The literature is clear that the diagnosis, treatment, and plan of care for hypertension in adults should rely, at least in part, on ambulatory blood pressure. Using in-office blood pressures alone risks inaccurate measurements and can result in inappropriate treatments. Many clinics, however, do not adhere to this recommendation and will fall back on clinic readings which puts the patient at risk of mismanaged hypertension and polypharmacy. This project was formulated to identify the extent to which hypertensive patients were diagnosed and managed without the use of home blood pressure monitoring in a small local community clinic. This project ...

Myocarditis Following Covid-19 Vaccination, Elisabeth Albert, Gerard P. Aurigemma, Jason Saucedo, David S. Gerson

COVID-19 Publications by UMMS Authors

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccination frequently leads to minor side-effects, that may be more intense after the second dose, but more serious side effects have been reported. We report a case of a 24-year-old man who presented to the hospital with acute substernal chest pain, 4 days after his second COVID-19 Moderna vaccination. Laboratory studies revealed elevated troponins and negative viral serologies. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (cMRI) demonstrated edema and delayed gadolinium enhancement of the left ventricle in a midmyocardial and epicardial distribution. The patient was diagnosed with myocarditis following Moderna vaccination. Our case report raises concern that myocarditis ...

Background NT-proBNP (N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide) is a prognostic biomarker in heart failure (HF) with reduced ejection fraction. However, it is unclear whether there is a sex difference in NT-proBNP response and whether the therapeutic goal of NT-proBNP ≤1000 pg/mL has equivalent prognostic value in men and women with HF with reduced ejection fraction. Methods and Results In a secondary analysis of the GUIDE-IT (Guiding Evidence Based Therapy Using Biomarker Intensified Treatment) trial we analyzed trends in NT-proBNP and goal attainment by sex. Differences in clinical characteristics, HF treatment, and time to all-cause death or HF hospitalization were compared ...

The VAD Journal

Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation is an established treatment for patients with end-stage, systolic heart failure as a bridge to heart transplantation or destination therapy. LVAD pump thrombosis is a life-threatening complication than can be triggered by prothrombotic conditions such as infection. Management of pump thrombosis presents as both a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge that is associated with a high morbidity and mortality. We report a case of pump thrombosis in a patient with a HeartMate II (Abbott Laboratories, Chicago, IL) and coronavirus (COVID-19) infection that was treated successfully with an intravenous thrombolytic, tissue plasminogen activator.

Transcatheter Mitral Valve Replacement And Repair Technology, Joel Thomas 2021 Liberty University

Transcatheter Mitral Valve Replacement And Repair Technology, Joel Thomas

Senior Honors Theses

The mitral valve is a two-cusp valve that is located between the left atrium and left ventricle of the heart. As blood flows from the lungs and enters the atrium, it must pass through this valve in one direction to enter the ventricle and be pumped out to the systemic circuit.

Mitral valve disease occurs when normal mitral valve function is impaired. Many different repair and replacement options exist. These options are contingent upon age and risk factors for patients. This paper focuses on the four main transcatheter mitral valve replacement devices that have limited human trials. It concludes that ...


Neonatal Arch Obstruction: Not Always A Coarctation, Karoline Krzywda 2021 Children's Mercy Hospital

Neonatal Arch Obstruction: Not Always A Coarctation, Karoline Krzywda

Research Days

Background: Spontaneous neonatal arch thrombosis is a rare, highly lethal cause of aortic arch obstruction.

Case: A 1-day-old male infant presented failing CCHD screen, on prostaglandin infusion for echocardiographic concerns of aortic coarctation. Repeat echocardiogram revealed severe arch obstruction due to a large, 7.5x5mm echogenic mass, at the aortic isthmus (Fig1A) with right to left systolic PDA flow. CT angiography confirmed presence of a large aortic arch thrombus (Fig1B). Bivalirudin infusion was initiated without change in thrombus size after 2 days. Tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) was subsequently administered with significant reduction in thrombus size to 3x4mm (Fig1C) on day ...

Atrial Standstill In A Pediatric Patient With Scn5a Mutation Following Procainamide Challenge, Anmol Goyal

Research Days

Background: Atrial standstill (AS) is a rare arrhythmia characterized by absence of electrical and mechanical atrial activity associated with SCN5A channelopathy.

Case: An 18 year old male with structurally normal heart, frequent sinus pauses, nonsustained atrial tachycardia and high-grade block was found to have SCN5A mutation c.3823G>A (p.Asp1275Asn). An electrophysiology study (EPS) with high density voltage mapping of the right atrium was done (Fig 1a). Nonsustained multifocal atrial tachycardia was induced without ablative targets (Fib 1b). Procainamide challenge was negative for Brugada, however induced AS (Fig 1c-d). No atrial capture could be achieved at maximal output. Empiric ...
