Haystack Principle - Its Importance in Unearthing the Electrocardiogram in a Patient with Unexplained Syncope

Santosh Kumar Sinha, FACC, FAESC, FSCAI, Awadesh Kumar Sharma , Mahmodullah Razi and Umeshwar Pandey

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 12, 2020

The "haystack principle" is of great diagnostic and therapeutic importance to unearth the obscure P waves which gives clue to underlying diagnosis. Here, we report a case of 72-year-old women who came to outdoor department for evaluation of repeated episodes of loss of consciousness. Electrocardiogram revealed complete right bundle branch block pattern with bizarre T wave in lead II, III, and aVF. P wave were not discernible. However, lead aVR revealed well formed P wave with second-degree atrio...

Cardiovascular Diseases in Acromegaly: Not Diagnosed What is Not Suspected

Ivan Lozada Martinez, Daniela Torres Llinás and Andrés Llamas Nieves

Article Type: Commentary | First Published: December 12, 2020

Acromegaly has been described as a rare disease, the result of chronic excessive secretion of growth hormone (GH), with subsequent elevation of Insulin-like Growth Factor I (IGF-1) levels. This condition is associated with an increase in morbidity and mortality compared to the general population, without taking into account that this endocrine disorder per se, increases cardiovascular risk by causing metabolic disorders such as hyperglycemia, dyslipidemia and systemic hypertension...

Implantation of Durable VAD during COVID-19: An Epicenter Experience

Scott Stewart, DNP, David Silber, DO, Bernard Kim, MD, Kumar Satya, MD, George Batsides, MD, Kanika Mody, MD, and Mark Anderson, MD

Article Type: Patient Care | First Published: December 12, 2020

Ventricular Assist Devices (VAD) serves as an advanced treatment modality for end stage systolic heart failure patients. Implantation of VAD requires a multidisciplinary team approach with in depth family meetings and education sessions to ensure a successful outcome. During the COVID-19 pandemic, multiple new barriers were identified to allow for traditional VAD implantation and post-operative care. Modifications to current processes needed to be developed to accommodate a safe and comprehensiv...

Oxidative Stress and Cardiovascular Risk: Research Must Persist

Ivan Lozada Martinez, Daniela Torres Llinás, Jaine Anaya Rivera, Jennifer Jiménez Valverde and Milena Castro Berrio

Article Type: Commentary | First Published: December 16, 2020

Advances in medicine and experimental biology have supported the definition of concepts related to the process of cellular stress, depending on new discoveries at the molecular level. Oxidative stress is the product of the activity of various metabolic pathways including the mitochondrial electron chain, Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate Oxidase (NADPH), nitric oxide synthase, xanthine oxidase, among others. Physiologically, regular levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS) play a fundam...

The Introduction of Self Help Group Facilitator in an Alcohol Unit: Preliminary Results

Patrizia Balbinot and Gianni Testino

Article Type: Brief Report | First Published: December 11, 2020

The main outcome of Alcohol Use Disorders (AUDs) treatment is the achievement of abstention. Pharmacological and psychosocial activities are strictly imbricated, however the results at one year are still unsatisfactory. To date, the most effective tool for maintaining abstention is attendance at Self-Mutual-Help Groups (SHGs). Despite that, to date few patients attend Self-Help Groups (SHGs). For this reason we have decided to introduce the Self-Help Group Facilitator (SHGF) to our service. Aft...

A Malrotated, Incarcerated Appendix within an Epigastric Hernia

Patrick E. McGovern, MD, Leandra Krowsoski, MD and Joseph F. Rappold, MD, FACS

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 16, 2020

A 40-year-old male who presented with non-reducible ventral abdominal mass that was tender to palpation on physical examination. He was found to have appendiceal incarceration within an epigastric ventral hernia defect secondary to congenital malrotation of the bowel, as initially identified on computed tomography. The patient was taken to the operating room emergently, where reduction of the hernia sac, appendectomy, and proper rotation of the colon was performed. Pathologic findings were consi...
