The impact of left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction on risk of atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrence is still unknown. The aim of this study was to assess the role of LV diastolic dysfunction in predicting AF recurrence after successful electrical cardioversion in patients with nonvalvular AF. In 51 patients with a first episode of nonvalvular AF(More)
OBJECTIVES Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) elicits more beneficial effects on left-ventricular (LV) structure and function, and long-term clinical outcomes in nonischemic heart failure patients. Rates of β-blocker use in recent heart failure trials are higher than in CRT trials and this may influence the response to CRT. This study examined the(More)
We report on the successful treatment with sildenafil of a unique case of severe chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension which developed as a late complication in a 71-year-old heart transplant recipient, with focus on the potential therapeutic challenges encountered in the management of such a peculiar association of clinical conditions.
