The increasing burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD) despite the progress in management entails the need of more effective preventive and curative strategies. As dietary-associated risk is the most important behavioral factor influencing global health, it appears the best target in the challenge against CVD. Although for many years, since the formulation(More)
Heart failure (HF) is the main cause of mortality and morbidity in Western countries. Although evidence-based treatments have substantially improved outcomes, prognosis remains poor with high costs for health care systems. In patients with HF, poor dietary behaviors are associated with unsatisfactory quality of life and adverse outcome. The HF guidelines(More)
Dear Editor, we report the case of a 60-year-old man, professional climber, who was attending a mountaineering expedition in Annapurna. At an altitude of about 5500 m the patient felt sudden onset of dyspnea, out of proportion to the effort he was making, for which he was trained. After coming back to Italy, the patient underwent cardiologic examination. A(More)
OBJECTIVE Previous studies revealed that hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) patients have impaired aortic elastic properties with contrasting data about aortic dimensions. We aimed to extend our knowledge about this topic, considering tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) and tissue strain. PATIENTS AND METHODS 25 HCM patients and 25 healthy volunteers matched for(More)
INTRODUCTION Transcatheter aortic valve implantation is the option of choice for high surgical risk patients suffering from symptomatic aortic stenosis. We aimed to evaluate the influence of baseline global longitudinal strain on left ventricular mass regression after the procedure. METHODS We enrolled 23 patients with pure symptomatic severe aortic(More)
We report the images of an incidental finding of an isolated left ventricular (LV) diver-ticulum in a 37-year old Indian man without cardiovascular risk factors admitted to emergency room for atypical chest pain. The physical examination was basically benign and there was no evidence of myo-cardial ischemic event either by electrocar-diography or the leak(More)
The progressive exposure to an increasing altitude results in a series of adjustments of various organs and systems (i.e., acclimatization) in healthy subjects; this requires them to stay on the mountain for longer or shorter periods. Knowledge about the cardiovascular adaptations to altitude in healthy subjects and known cardiac patients is very important(More)
