The differential diagnosis of syncope causes in patients with structural heart disease is important, because vasovagal and postural hypotension have better survival and less probability of emergency room or hospital readmission and the available scores are not reliable tools for prognosis.
Representation of cardiovascular magnetic resonance in the AHA / ACC guidelines
In a simplified comparison with the ESC guidelines, CMR is less represented in the AHA/ACC guidelines in particular in the field of coronary artery disease.
Sex Differences in Patients Hospitalized for Syncope: Experience in University Hospital of Middle-income Country and with a Predominance of Chagasic Etiology
Men hospitalized for syncope were older, had more systolic ventricular dysfunction, and had higher Martin and OESIL scores, and the main causes of syncopes were ventricular tachycardia and bradyarrhythmias among men and supraventricularTachycardias among women.
Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension in Parkinson Disease: A Primer
The pathophysiology and effects of Neurogenic orthostatic hypotension, a potentially serious manifestation of cardiovascular sympathetic failure that occurs in approximately 30% of patients with PD, are reviewed.
A Complete Workup of Recurrent Syncope Caused by Significant Left Main Coronary Artery Stenosis
An 81-year-old African American man with recurrent witnessed syncopal events and newly diagnosed heart failure underwent extensive cardiac workup and revealed ischemic ventricular tachycardia in the setting of significant coronary artery disease including 80% distal left main disease.
Case Report: An Unusual Case of Pheochromocytoma
A female patient with acquired long QT syndrome is reported, which is a rare complication of pheochromocytoma, a benign catecholamine secreting tumor, which originates from the adrenal gland.
Long‑term outcomes of non‑systematic device reimplantation following lead extraction in selected patients
It is hypothesized that the implantation of pacing systems in selected patients following lead extraction is safe and confirmed that non‑systematic device reimplantation associated with close surveillance is safe for selected patients.
Current best practices in emergency evaluation and management of syncope.
ABSTRACT Syncope is a common medical presentation that can cost the US healthcare system up to $2.4 billion dollars annually. Much of this cost can be mitigated with proper evaluation and management
Analysis of vasovagal syncope in the blood collection room in patients undergoing phlebotomy
According to the results, use of a large number of blood collection tubes and a prolonged waiting time for phlebotomy may be risk factors for the development of VVS.
Diretrizes ACC/AHA/HRS versus ESC para diagnóstico e manejo da síncope. Comparação de diretrizes do JACC
A síncope é um problema comum e desafiador na prática clínica. Ela se apresenta de maneiras variáveis, e o mecanismo causal geralmente permanece indescritível, mesmo após uma avaliação extensa (e,

Echocardiography in the evaluation of patients with syncope
The frequency with which echocardiography was used in the evaluation of patients admitted to one medical center because of syncope was examined to examine the diagnostic information, over and above that provided by the initial history, physical examination, and electrocardiography, contributed by the eChocardiogram.

Diagnostic criteria for vasovagal syncope based on a quantitative history.
A simple point score of historical features distinguishes vasovagal syncope from syncope of other causes with very high sensitivity and specificity.
Long QT Syndrome: An Indication for Cervicothoracic Sympathectomy
It is suggested that LCS is associated with significant clinical benefits in patients wlth long QT syndrome and the procedure should be considered when symptoms are refractory and malignant, or when contralndlcatlons to ~-blockers are present.
