    Non-hemodynamic factors associated to the risk of developing hypertensive cardiopathy

    Alexis Álvarez-Aliaga*, Julio César González-Aguilera, Liliana del Rosario Maceo-Gómez, Lic David del Llano Sosa, Raúl Leyva-Castro and Rosa Ojeda-Vázquez

    Introduction: Hypertensive cardiopathy is the target organ lesion caused by arterial hypertension (HTN) that exhibits the highest morbidity and mortality rates. Although the importance of hemodynamic overload exerted by HTN on the onset of cardiopathy is well established, several non-hemodynamic factors may contribute significantly to its development.

    A new heart: portraying the physiologic anatomo-functional reconstruction in ischemic cardiomyopathy

    Marco Cirillo*, Marco Campana, Anna Bressanelli and Giovanni Troise

    Fiber-based model of the left ventricle is known since 1628 but the complex 3D structure of myocardial fibers has not taken into account in normalcy or in disease until the last decade. We here present the case of a 60-year-old female patient affected by ischemic cardiomyopathy and severe left ventricular dysfunction.

    Value of electrocardiographic T wave inversion in lead aVL in prediction of Mid Left Anterior Descending Stenosis in patients with stable Coronary Artery

    Gehan Magdy* and Awad Yousef

    Background: The electrocardiogram (ECG) is a simple and noninvasive bedside diagnostic tool with a wellestablished role in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD). We aimed to study the diagnostic value of electrocardiographic ST-T wave changes in lead aVL in prediction of site of coronary artery stenosis in patients with chronic stable angina.

    Subacute infectious endocarditisassociated membranoproliferative glomerular nephritis: A Case Report and Review

    Yi De Zhang, Ya Min Yu, Hou Yong Dai, Xiao Lan Chen, Li Yuan and Hui Shi*

    We experienced a case of membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN) caused by subacute infectious endocarditis (SIE). A 57-year-old male farmer complained of fatigue, lack of appetite and gross haematuria for a month; he had no cough, chest pain, or exertion dyspnea. After admission, lab tests showed mild proteinuria(1.04g/d) and heavy dysmorphic red blood cells(RBC) (543/HP), with serum creatinine(Scr) slightly elevated(1.46mg/dl) and anemia(hemoglobin Hb 85g/L).

    A rare Congenital Coronary Artery Anomaly: Woven Right Coronary Artery associated with Myocardial Infarction

    Tolga Doğan, Mucahit Yetim, Lütfü Bekar, Oğuzhan Çelik, Macit Kalçık* and Yusuf Karavelioğlu

    Woven coronary artery (WCA) is an extremely rare and still not a clearly defined coronary anomaly. It is characterized by the division of epicardial coronary artery into thin channels which then reanastomose with the distal part of the abnormal coronary artery [1].

    Investigation of Retinal Microvascular Findings in patients with Coronary Artery Disease

    Tolga Doğan*, Osman Akın Serdar, Naile Bolca Topal and Özgür Yalçınbayır

    Objective: Retinal microvascular anomalies may be a marker for cardiovascular diseases. Our aim in this study was to investigate the utility of ocular fundoscopic examination as a noninvasive method in specifying the patients who carry a risk for coronary artery disease.

    Incidence of symptom-driven Coronary Angiographic procedures post-drug-eluting Balloon treatment of Coronary Artery drugeluting stent in-stent Restenosis-does it matter?

    Victor Voon*, Dikshaini Gumani, Calvin Craig, Ciara Cahill, Khalid Mustafa, Terry Hennessy, Samer Arnous and Thomas Kiernan

    Objectives: The clinical impact of drug-eluting balloon (DEB) coronary intervention for drug-eluting in-stent restenosis (DES-ISR) is not fully known. To further evaluate this impact, we aimed to describe the incidence of symptom-driven coronary angiography (SDCA), an under-reported but potentially informative outcome metric in this cohort of patients.

    Thrombolysis, the only Optimally Rapid Reperfusion Treatment

    Victor Gurewich*

    Thrombolysis with tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) has been plagued by inadequate effi cacy and a high risk of intracranial hemorrhage (ICH), which led to its replacement by procedures like percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) whenever possible. Since this requires hospitalization, it is time-consuming, and compromising salvage of brain tissue and myocardium.

    Spontaneous rupture of a giant Coronary Artery Aneurysm after acute Myocardial Infarction

    Oğuzhan Çelik, Mucahit Yetim, Tolga Doğan, Lütfü Bekar, Macit Kalçık* and Yusuf Karavelioğlu

    Coronary artery aneurysm is commonly defined as a localized dilatation exceeding the diameter of adjacent normal coronary segments by 50% [1]. Coronary artery aneurysms may be fusiform, involving the full circumference of the coronary artery, or saccular, involving only a portion of the circumference [2].

    Procedure utilization, latency and mortality: Weekend versus Weekday admission for Myocardial Infarction

    Nader Makki, David M Kline, Arun Kanmanthareddy, Hansie Mathelier, Satya Shreenivas and Scott M Lilly*

    Background: Due to variations in hospital protocols and personnel availability, individuals with myocardial infarction admitted on the weekend may be less likely to receive invasive procedures, or may receive them with a greater latency than those admitted during the week. Whether or not this occurs, and translates into a difference in outcomes is not established.

    Short and Medium-Term Evaluation of Patients in Coronary Post-Angioplasty: Préliminary results at the Cardiology Department of the Hospital University Aristide Le Dantec of Dakar (Senegal): Study on 38 Cases

    Dioum M*, Aw F, Masmoudi K, Gaye ND, Sarr SA, Ndao SCT, Mingou J, Ngaide AA, Diack B, Bodian M, Ndiaye MB, Diao M and Ba SA

    Introduction: Coronary angioplasty is a safe therapeutic method for coronary disease. However, its major obstacles remain the occurrence of stent thrombosis (ST) and in-stent restenosis (ISR). The aim of this study was to evaluate the short-term and medium-term results of coronary angioplasty patients in the cardiology department of Aristide Le Dantec hospital in Dakar.

    Congenital Quadricuspid Aortic Valve, a Rare Cause of Aortic Insufficiency in Adults: Case Report

    Cyrus Kocherla* and Kalgi Modi

    Quadricuspid aortic valve (QAV) is rare congenital malformation of the aortic valve with estimated prevalence of 0.013% to 0.043% [1-4]. QAV is most commonly associated with aortic insufficiency (AI), which is found in almost 75% of cases [5]. QAV can also be associated with other cardiac defects such as ventricular or atrial septal defects, patent ductus arteriosus, subaortic fibromuscular stenosis, malformation of the mitral valve, and coronary anomalies [3].
