AIMS Ageing-related cardiac disorders such as heart failure and atrial fibrillation often present with intracellular calcium homeostasis dysfunction. However, knowledge of the intrinsic effects of ageing on cellular calcium handling in the human heart is sparse. Therefore, this study aimed to analyse how ageing affects key mechanisms that regulate(More)
Non-penetrating cardiac traumatisms can cause cardiac rupture, myocardial contusion or, rarely, commotio cordis. In cases of rupture of a cardiac cavity, acute and severe cardiac tamponade almost invariably occurs. This paper presents an exceptionally unusual case of non-penetrating cardiac trauma resulting in right atrium rupture contained by the(More)
Aortic valve replacement by bioprosthesis is increasingly being used. Among these, stentless bioprosthesis is becoming a valid choice due to its potential hemodynamic improvement. The Sorin Freedom SOLO stentless aortic valve (FS) (Sorin Biomedica Cardio, Saluggia, Italy) is widely used, with initial and midterm promising results. It is designed to be(More)
