Takotsubo syndrome. Case report and literature review.
TLDR
A transitory apical ballooning secondary to acute myocardial infarction associated with a significantly stressful event that resulted in complete improvement of ventricular function with percutaneous coronary intervention during the following 4 months is shown. Expand
Abstract 362: Presentation, Management, and Outcomes of Infective Endocarditis at a Tertiary Medical Center
TLDR
In a single academic medical center, IE patients presented with high degree of acuity and found to have frequent complications in echocardiogram, despite recent advances in medical, surgical, and critical care, many patients had a long hospitalization with relatively high inpatient mortality and readmission rate.

Abstract 335: Practice Pattern Differences in the Early Treatment of Hospitalized Heart Failure Patients: Preserved Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction vs. Reduced Ejection Fraction
TLDR
In a large national cohort of patients hospitalized with AHF, there were several differences in the demographics, early treatment strategies and outcomes for HFpEF patients compared with HFrEF patients. Expand
Long-term prognosis of women with Brugada syndrome and Electrophysiologic study.
TLDR
Women withBrS represent a minor faction among patients with BrS, and although rate of events is low, it does not constitute a risk-free group, and neither clinical risk factors nor EPS predict future arrhythmic events. Expand
HOSPITAL VARIATION IN MANAGEMENT OF PATIENTS WITH HEART FAILURE PRESERVED EJECTION FRACTION
TLDR
Patients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction diagnosed with HF or HFpEF are likely to be at higher risk of adverse events because of the uncertainty surrounding specific therapies that improve outcomes. Expand
[Binary restenosis post-cutting balloon ptca before stenting].
TLDR
The cutting balloon is a useful device for the management of complex lesions (B2 and C) but the restenosis rate with this device is similar to the one obtained with PTCA and stenting, so it is not recommend it for rutine use. Expand
