Beverage Specific Effect of Alcohol on Ishaemic Heart Disease Mortality in Russia

Y. E. Razvodovsky

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 26, 2014

Objective: It was repeatedly emphasized that alcohol provides the most plausible explanation for both the high rate and the dramatic fluctuation in Russian Ischemic Heart Disease (IHD) mortality rate during the last decades, while other traditional risk factors identified in epidemiologic studies had little predictive value. The link between IHD mortality and beverage-specific alcohol drinking has...

Carotid Sinus Syndrome as a Manifestation of Head and Neck Cancer Case Report and Literature Review

Nikhil Mehta, Medhat Abdelmessih, Lachlan Smith, Daniel Jacoby and Mark Marieb

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 25, 2014

Head and neck cancers rarely manifest as Carotid Sinus Syndrome (CSS). CSS is a rare complex of symptoms found in 1% of all patients who experience syncope, the pathophysiology of which is yet to be fully understood. Common trigger mechanisms for CSS include neck movement, shaving, constricting neck wear, coughing, sneezing and straining to lift heavy objects. The left carotid sinus mainly causes ...

Cardiac Troponin Assessment Following Atrial Fibrillation Ablation: Implications for Chest Pain Evaluation

Jason C. Rubenstein, Jason Jacobson, Jeffrey J. Goldberger, Rod Passman, Alan Kadish and Michael H. Kim

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 25, 2014

Background: The range of elevation of troponin I (tI) that is within expected limits from left atrial radiofrequency ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF) is not well described, though such information may be of clinical value. Objectives: Identify the expected range of tI values post-atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation. Methods: 31 patients undergoing AF ablation had a single tI level drawn the d...

Discriminant Analysis of Heart Rate Variability after Electrical Cardioversion Predicts Atrial Fibrillation Recurrence

Donatella B, Angela V, Emilia I, Kristian E, Claudia C, Rita SA, Francesco F and Riccardo F

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 25, 2014

Aims: Cardiac Autonomic Modulation (CAM) may be pivotal for Atrial Fibrillation (AF) occurrence and affect early recurrence (ER) after Electrical Cardioversion (EC). Previous studies investigating linear (L) Heart Rate Variability (HRV) after EC have given conflicting results about which CAM pattern favours ER. This study aimed at evaluating if non-linear (NL) HRV analysis (HRVa) could provide bet...

Surgical Treatment of Severe Tricuspid Valve Regurgitation Due to Permanent Pacemaker

Wenjian Jiang, Haiyang Li, Dong Guo, Yongqiang Lai and Hongjia Zhang

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: November 24, 2014

A 64-year-old woman, received implantation of a Permanent Pace Maker (PPM) 7 years ago, was referred for severe tricuspid valve regurgitation with a lead impingement of the tricuspid valve leaflets. We fied the lead to the posterior septal commissure, used 28 # Edwards MC3 ring to annulus form the tricuspid valve ring and then sutured the posterior septal commissure by edge to edge. This patient r...

Parameters of Mitral Deformability in Patients with Functional Mitral Regurgitation

Kammoun I, Marrakchi S, Zouari F, Fersi I, Ibn Elhaj Z, Mokrani S, Added F and Kachboura S

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 21, 2014

Background: Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) is one of the common and severe complications in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy. Then determinants of degree of FMR must be more defined. Purpose: We sought to determine a cut off value of the tenting area and the coaptation depth which correlate with the severity of the FMR. Methods and results: We enrolled prospectively 96 patients (71 ma...

Rheumatic Mitral Restenosis with Concomitant Coronary artery Disease

Anupam Dey, Ramesh Aggarwal and Shridhar Dwivedi

Article Type: Letter to Editor | First Published: November 21, 2014

Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) has practically vanished from developed countries; however one often sees complicated rheumatic valvular disease in elderly individuals, in developing countries. It is not very common to see operated cases of mitral stenosis (MS) coexisting with coronary artery disease (CAD). Studies have reported prevalence of CAD coexisting with rheumatic MS ranging from 1.7% to 28%...

Ultrasound Guided Regional Anesthesia Training Simulator Using Microsoft Kinect

Aparajith Sairam, Jian Feng, Norman I. Badler, Jiabin Liu, Kenneth Richman and Nabil Elkassabany

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 24, 2014

We present a system for the interactive simulation of ultrasound guided peripheral nerve blocks using a Microsoft Kinect. The system performs motion tracking of both the ultrasound probe and the nerve block needle. Software generates synthetic ultrasound images from previously captured ultrasound images. Details of the software elements in the system are described. Some of the current challenges a...

Endotracheal Repair of an Iatrogenic Tracheal Laceration in A 83-Year-Old Critically Ill Woman with Aspiration Pneumonitis and Sepsis

Stefan Welter, Danjouma Cheufou, Thomas Ehmann, Sandra Kampe and Peter Scharmann

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: November 24, 2014

Tracheal laceration is a rare complication of emergency intubation. The treatment decision depends on severity of accompanying problems, available resources, condition and perspectives of the patient and experience of the responsible intensivist and surgeon. The life saving application of endotracheal suture in a disastrous situation is demonstrated in this report. We present the case of a 83-year...

Need of Ultrasound in Emergency Department for Suprapubic Catheterization

Prerana N. Shah, Vaishali P Chaskar, Pradeep Rathod, Anand Komawar and Barakha Gadpale

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: November 20, 2014

Acute retention of urine is a medical emergency which needs immediate intervention. Urethral catheterization is a common procedure in the emergency department. Repeated unsuccessful attempts for urethral catheterization demand alternative procedure like suprapubic catheterization. Traditionlly, anatomical landmarks are used to achieve suprapubic catheterization. The confirmation of successful ca...
