Maya Khodor, MD and Joseph Chattahi, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: April 24, 2021

Brugada Syndrome is a rare arrhythmogenic entity that poses a risk of sudden cardiac death due to ventricular arrhythmias. Sinus node dysfunction is a less recognized and acknowledged conduction abnormality associated with Brugada syndrome, but nevertheless an important potential manifestation that can alter management.

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: March 22, 2021

Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) is a serious complication in patients with chronic kidney disease with coronary artery disease who undergo percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and is associated with higher morbidity and mortality in short and long term. The limiting volume of contrast agent is safest and most reliable strategy to prevent CIN. Here, we report a case of suc¬cessful primary PCI using only 13 ml of contrast (iodixanol) of mid left anterior descending artery where wire in di...

Systemic polyarteritis nodosa is a vasculitis characterized by inflammation and fibrinoid necrosis of medium and small arteries, with a global incidence of 0.7/100,000 and a prevalence of 6.3/100,000. Its cause is as yet unknown, and it affects both children and adults. The clinical presentation tends to be insidious and vague in its initial stages. Cardiac involvement is one of the signs of severity, with coronary artery impairment and aneurysmal lesions of varying degrees. The consequent heart...

Evolution of Pediatric Cardiology over the Last 50 Years (Trends in Transcatheter Interventions for Pediatric Heart Disease - Part I)

P Syamasundar Rao, MD

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: March 08, 2021

The author has just written a book on the evolution of the specialty of Pediatric Cardiology over the last 50 years. The intent of this review is to present a summary of this book. Because of large amount of this material, the review is separated into four parts. In this first part, transcatheter interventions (balloon angioplasty/ valvuloplasty procedures) will be appraised. Based a thorough review of the literature it appears that Rubio-Alvarez, et al. were the very first to do and report tra...
