1. Tomoki Ushijima, Yoshihisa Tanoue, Hiromichi Sonoda, Meikun Kan-O, Shinichiro Oda, Satoshi Kimura, Toru Hashimoto, Takeo Fujino, Akira Shiose, Potential of the EVAHEART 2 Double-Cuff Tipless Inflow Cannula for Prevention of Thromboembolic Events., ASAIO journal (American Society for Artificial Internal Organs : 1992), 10.1097/MAT.0000000000001672, 68, 10, e168-e171, 2022.10, A 32-year-old man, who had developed fulminant myocarditis leading to asystole, underwent implantation of an EVAHEART 2 left ventricular assist system with a double-cuff tipless inflow cannula and a concurrent Fontan operation. Approximately 2 years after the simultaneous EVAHEART 2 implantation and the Fontan operation, the patient underwent heart transplantation. There was no device-related thromboembolism or pump malfunction under adequate antithrombotic management during the postoperative support period. Computed tomography showed no malposition of the inflow cannula irrespective of the left ventricular chamber size. Macroscopically, the left ventricular cavity of the excised heart revealed a smooth inflow ostium with appropriate intimal proliferation and without pannus or wedge thrombus formation. These findings suggest the utility of the double-cuff tipless inflow cannula for long-term clinical applications, which may lead to favorable outcomes during long-term patient management. The double-cuff tipless inflow cannula, which does not protrude into the left ventricular cavity, potentially contributes to the prevention of suction events and the collision of the inflow cannula with the interventricular septum and left ventricular free wall. Further investigation is required to confirm the role of the unique EVAHEART 2 inflow cannula in reducing thromboembolic events..

However, the implementation and continuation of CR remains unsatisfactory, particularly for outpatients with physical frailty. This study investigated the efficacy and safety of a comprehensive home-based cardiac rehabilitation (HBCR) programme that combines patient education, exercise guidance, and nutritional guidance using information and communication technology (ICT).Methods and results This study was a single-centre, open-label, randomized, controlled trial. Between April 2020 and November 2020, 30 outpatients with chronic HF (New York Heart Association II-III) and physical frailty were enrolled. The control group (n = 15) continued with standard care, while the HBCR group (n = 15) also received comprehensive, individualized CR, including ICT-based exercise and nutrition guidance using ICT via a Fitbit (R) device for 3 months. The CR team communicated with each patient in HBCR group once a week via the application messaging tool and planned the training frequency and intensity of training individually for the next week according to each patient's symptoms and recorded pulse data during exercise. Dietitians conducted a nutritional assessment and then provided individual nutritional advice using the picture-posting function of the application. The primary outcome was the change in the 6 min walking distance (6MWD). The participants' mean age was 63.7 +/- 10.1 years, 53% were male, and 87% had non-ischaemic heart disease. The observed change in the 6MWD was significantly greater in the HBCR group (52.1 +/- 43.9 m vs. -4.3 +/- 38.8 m; P < 0.001) at a 73% of adherence rate. There was no significant change in adverse events in either group.Conclusions Our comprehensive HBCR programme using ICT for HF patients with physical frailty improved exercise tolerance and improved lower extremity muscle strength in our sample, suggesting management with individualized ICT-based programmes as a safe and effective approach. Considering the increasing number of HF patients with frailty worldwide, our approach provides an efficient method to keep patients engaged in physical activity in their daily life..

Electrocardiography showed ST-segment elevation and echocardiography demonstrated severe left ventricular dysfunction. Venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and Impella 5.0 were instituted because of cardiogenic shock and ventricular fibrillation. Endomyocardial biopsy demonstrated necrotizing eosinophilic myocarditis (NEM). Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV2) PCR test was negative. He had no infection or history of new drug exposure. NEM was likely related to COVID-19 vaccination. He was administered 10 mg/kg of prednisolone following methylprednisolone pulse treatment (1000 mg/day for 3 days). Left ventricular function recovered and he was weaned from mechanical circulatory support (MCS). Follow-up endomyocardial biopsy showed no inflammatory cell infiltration. This is the first report of biopsy-proven NEM after COVID-19 vaccination survived with MCS and immunosuppression therapy. It is a rare condition but early, accurate diagnosis and early aggressive intervention can rescue patients..

Heart failure, 10.1161/CIRCHEARTFAILURE.122.010320, 16, 4, e010320, 2023.04, BACKGROUND: The impact of early implementation of cardiac rehabilitation (CR) in heart failure (HF) patients remains to be elucidated. This study sought to determine whether CR during HF hospitalization could improve prognostic outcomes in patients with acute decompensated HF. METHODS: We analyzed patients with HF enrolled in the JROADHF (Japanese Registry of Acute Decompensated Heart Failure) registry, a retrospective, multicenter, nationwide registry of patients hospitalized for acute decompensated HF. Eligible patients were divided into 2 groups according to CR during hospitalization. The primary outcome was a composite of cardiovascular death or rehospitalization due to cardiovascular event after discharge. The secondary outcomes were cardiovascular death and cardiovascular event rehospitalization. RESULTS: Out of 10 473 eligible patients, 3210 patients underwent CR. Propensity score matching yielded 2804 pairs. Mean age was 77±12 years and 3127 (55.8%) were male. During a mean follow-up of 2.8 years, the CR group had lower incidence rates of the composite outcome (291 versus 327 events per 1000 patient-years; rate ratio, 0.890 [95% CI, 0.830-0.954]; P=0.001) and rehospitalization due to cardiovascular event (262 versus 295 events per 1000 patient-years; rate ratio, 0.888 [95% CI, 0.825-0.956]; P=0.002) than the no CR group. In-hospital CR was associated with an improvement in Barthel index for activities of daily living (P=0.002). Patients with very low Barthel index at admission were benefited by CR in comparison with patients with independent Barthel index (very low; hazard ratio, 0.834 [95% CI, 0.742-0.938]: independent; hazard ratio, 0.985 [95% CI, 0.891-1.088]; P for interaction=0.035). CONCLUSIONS: CR implementation during hospitalization was associated with better long-term outcomes in patients with acute decompensated HF. These data support the need for a randomized, controlled, adequately powered trial to definitively test the role of early physical rehabilitation in hospitalized patients with HF..

Among the 40,794 DCM patients screened, 27,702 with left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) <50% and age ≥18 years were enrolled in this study and divided into 3 groups according to registration year: Group 1, 2003-2005 (10,006 patients); Group 2, 2006-2010 (11,252 patients); and Group 3, 2011-2013 (6,444 patients). Over time, there were decreases in age at registration (mean [±SD] 58.6±13.0 vs. 56.8±13.8 vs. 56.2±13.8 years; P<0.001) and LVEF (33.5±10.0% vs. 31.1±9.9% vs. 29.2± 9.7%; P<0.001), and an increase in patients with New York Heart Association Class III-IV (28.2% vs. 35.2% vs. 41.0%; P<0.001). The use of β-blockers (59.1% vs. 79.3% vs. 87.8%; P<0.001) and mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (30.6% vs. 35.8% vs. 39.7%; P<0.001) increased over time. In multivariate analysis, male sex, systolic blood pressure, chronic kidney disease, hemoglobin, and registration year were positively associated, whereas age and LVEF were negatively associated, with β-blocker prescription. CONCLUSIONS: Although the clinical characteristics of DCM changed, the implementation of optimal medical therapy for DCM increased from 2003 to 2013 in Japan..

Chest X-ray demonstrated pneumopericardium. Computed tomography revealed ulceration and abscess in the gastric conduit adjacent to the heart, suggesting gastropericardial fistula. As the patient did not show tamponade physiology, he was conservatively treated with antibiotics. The pneumopericardium diminished; however, he developed effusive-constrictive pericarditis with overt heart failure symptoms. Because pericardiocentesis failed to relieve the symptoms, pericardiectomy was performed. Intraoperative exploration revealed remarkably thickened pericardium and epicardium constituting multiple layers with purulent effusion. Epicardiectomy as well as pericardiectomy were required to achieve the effective reduction of central venous pressure. Perforation of the gastric conduit into the pericardial cavity was identified and repaired. Histopathology demonstrated thickened pericardium composed of hyalinized stroma, collagenous bundles, and infiltration of inflammatory cells. Streptococcus anginosus and Candida tropicalis were identified by culture of the resected tissue..

Patients were categorized into 3 groups based on the site of pacing and the proportion of ventricular pacing (VP) as follows: (1) atrial pacing group with atrial pacing only (n = 11); (2) low VP group with low daily VP proportion (<50%; n = 12); and (3) high VP group with high daily VP proportion (>= 50%; n = 15). Pacing leads were placed at the epicardium in all patients.RESULTS No patients in the atrial pacing or low VP groups died, whereas the survival rate in the high VP group was 58.9% and 39.3% at 10 and 20 years, respectively, after pacemaker implantation. Among the post-Fontan patients, plasma brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels significantly increased with the proportion of VP: 11.7, 20.3, and 28.4 pg/mL in the atrial pacing, low VP, and high VP groups, respectively (P = 0.04). In the high VP group, the plasma BNP level was significantly lower in patients with an apical pacing lead than in those with a nonapical pacing lead (27.0 pg/mL vs 82.8 pg/mL, respectively; P = .03).CONCLUSION A higher proportion of VP was associated with poor outcome and higher plasma BNP levels, probably due to ventricular dyssynchrony. In epicardial ventricular pacing, apical pacing is better to avoid the increase in ventricular stress and plasma BNP level..
