The role of advanced glycation end-products in the development of coronary artery disease in patients with and without diabetes mellitus: a review
TLDR
Assessment of circulating and tissue AGE levels in identifying asymptomatic patients at risk for CAD or to identify patients who may benefit from invasive intervention suggests AGEs and their receptors may be useful biomarkers for the presence and severity of CAD. Expand
Intracardiac Echocardiography for Structural Heart and Electrophysiological Interventions
TLDR
The more recent reports that ICE may be used for primary guidance or as a supplement to TEE in patients undergoing left atrial appendage closure, interatrial shunt closure, transaortic valve implantation, percutaneous mitral valve repair, paravalvular leak, and patent ductus arteriosus closure are reviewed. Expand
The role of percutaneous vacuum‐assisted thrombectomy for intracardiac and intravascular pathology
TLDR
The mechanism, current results, potential clinical indications, and limitations of VAT for iliocaval and intracardiac mass removal are discussed. Expand
Cardioprotective Utility of Urocortin in Myocardial Ischemia- Reperfusion Injury: Where do We Stand?
TLDR
An updated review largely focused on the various mechanisms through which urocortin alters cellular metabolism is presented, and the clinical potential of uroc Cortin's cardioprotective ability in myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury is discussed. Expand
Postpartum Sudden Cardiac Death After Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection in a Patient With Fibromuscular Dysplasia
TLDR
This case exemplifies that prompt diagnosis along with medical management without the need of coronary artery bypass graft, and percutaneous coronary intervention can improve survival in SCAD. Expand
A standardized protocol to reliably visualize the left atrial appendage with intracardiac echocardiography: Importance of multiple imaging sites
TLDR
There is no accepted protocol for left atrial appendage imaging with intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) with respect to LAA in patients with a history of atrial fusions. Expand
Diagnostic Approach to Myocarditis Mimicking Myocardial Infarction at Initial Presentation
TLDR
The indications of myocardial biopsy are discussed, the relative utility of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in formulating the diagnosis ofMyocarditis is compared and the relative Utility of Cardiac magnetic resonance Imaging is compared. Expand
Fusion Imaging for Structural Heart Disease Interventions
TLDR
While fusion imaging has the potential to improve SHD interventions, data is mainly limited to observational studies, therefore, future studies are needed to evaluate if fusion imaging leads to an improvement in procedural success and a reduction in procedural time, radiation exposure, and contrast dose. Expand
Long‐term survival in triple‐vessel disease: Hybrid coronary revascularization compared to contemporary revascularization methods
TLDR
The objective was to evaluate 8‐year survival in patients with triple‐vessel disease (TVD) treated by HCR, compared with that of concurrent matched patients managed by traditional coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or multivessel PCI. Expand
