Improvement in Hypertension Symptoms and Measurement Readings of Blood Pressure with Non-Invasive Positive Pressure Ventilation in Hypertensive Patients having Obstructive Sleep Apnea/Hypopnea Syndrome (OSAHS)

Original Article

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: August 04, 2022

Hypertension is a common comorbidity in obstructive sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS). OSAHS can raise blood pressures to pre-hypertensive and hypertensive ranges, increase the prevalence of “nondipping” overnight blood pressure patterns, and increase the risk of resistant hypertension. The gold standard treatment for OSAHS is non-invasive ventilation through CPAP...

Atrial Flow Regulator: A New Player for the Treatment of Refractory Heart Failure

Vincenzo Rizza, MD, Giuseppe Uccello, MD, Francesco Federico, MD, Mariano Pellicano, MD, PhD, Maurizio Tespili, MD and Alfonso Ielasi, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: July 23, 2022

Described herein the case of a 55-year-old man diagnosed with advanced heart failure. He had a history of ischemic heart disease leading to moderate left ventricular systolic disfunction, symptomatic for effort dyspnoea despite optimal medical therapy. After coronary angiography and right heart catheterization (showing basal pulmonary capillary wedge pressures - PCWP - 20 mmHg), the patient underwent percutaneous inter-atrial shunt therapy (IAST) through the opposition of an Atrial Flow Regulato...

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: July 20, 2022

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has become an established treatment for heart failure patients with conduction disorders and a significantly reduced ejection fraction. Nevertheless, CRT is limited by several complications, many of which are associated with the insertion of the left ventricular (LV) lead. The LV lead should be placed at the most delayed site in the left ventricle....
