Can Vitamin D Deficiency be a Risk Factor for Coronary Artery Disease? A Large Cross-Sectional Study of Patients Referred to Cardiovascular Clinic

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the most common causes of mortality and morbidity worldwide.Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common form of CVD. To prevent CAD we need to assess the risk of future CAD in all patients referred for cardiovascular care, but each of the several available systems for risk assessment has its own limitations. This study was designed to determine whether vitamin D deficiency is a potential risk factor for CAD.

Hereditary Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection

SCAD with an estimated prevalence of 1.7% to 4% is an important cause of Myocardial infarction especially in middleaged women with no or minimal cardiovascular risk factors. Diagnosis requires a high degree of suspicion and better coronary imaging. The hereditary/ genetic component has been postulated to play a role, but there is insufficient data on familial SCAD. We present a case of SCAD with probable genetic and autoimmune association.

Intramural Abscesses: A Sequela of Infective Endocarditis in a Patient with HIV

Infective Endocarditis (IE) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality, with in-hospital mortality having been reported as ranging from 19-26%. Commonly documented complications of IE include valvular and chordae destruction and resultant regurgitations, embolic events, peri-valvular abscesses, fistulae, and congestive heart failure.

Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection: Efficient Clinical Outcome through Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a rare myocardial ischemic disease that threatens patients’ life. Various risk factors are associated with SCAD, such as smoking, severe hypertension and psychological reasons. Considering the formation of dissection, SCAD can be divided into intimal tear type or intraluminal hemorrhage type.

Lethal Dance with Dialysis – A Case of Silent Long QT Syndrome

Fatal arrhythmia is the leading cause of mortality in chronic haemodialysis patients. Long QT syndrome is responsible for polymorphic ventricular tachycardia known as Torsade de Pointes. Classically, long QT syndromes were divided into congenital and acquired; however ‘silent’ variants, in which patients remain asymptomatic until exposed to a drug or electrolyte disturbance precipitating the arrhythmia, have now been recognized.

Coverage of Exposed Lower Extremity Bypass Vascular Graft with Integra and NPWT for Limb Salvage

Integra was first used to replace the dermis in third-degree burns to minimize contraction and scarring, its usage had led to better functional and aesthetic results. It acts as a network for dermal reconstruction. Its usage had expanded in trauma and soft tissue defects resulting after cancer excision and other defects with tendons and bone exposure.

Postoperative Chylothorax: Is Octreotide A Valid Therapy?

Chylothorax is an extremely rare and serious complication of cardiac surgery, with a poor outcome unless treated at the right time and in the right way. We report a case of a 76-year-old female who developed chylothorax after coronary artery bypass grafting.

Acculturation and Subclinical Atherosclerosis among U.S. South Asians: Findings from the MASALA study

Longer duration of residence among immigrants to the United States, a proxy measure of acculturation, has been associated with higher subclinical atherosclerosis. South Asian immigrants are the second fastest growing immigrant group in the U.S. but little is known about the effects of acculturation with atherosclerosis in this high cardiovascular risk population.

Left Ventricular Mural Thrombus Treated With Dabigatran

Novel oral anticoagulants may be effective and safe alternatives to conventional treatment for left ventricular (LV) mural thrombus. A case of left ventricular mural thrombus successfully treated with dabigatran etixelate is described, and the rationale for undertaking further systematic evaluation of novel anticoagulants for this indication discussed.

Therapeutic Hypothermia Still Effective in Prevention of Anoxic Encephalopathy following Extended Period of Pulselessness during Cardiac Arrest

There are approximately 300,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests per year with less than 10% of those surviving. More than half of survivors suffer permanent neurologic deficits. Therapeutic hypothermia has proven effective at thwarting neurologic damage occurring in the 16-hour window following return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). Despite recommendations by the American Heart Association (AHA), many cardiologists have been slow to implement therapeutic hypothermia. While many trials have discussed the relevance of initial rhythm and delay of cooling, there has been limited discussion of the efficacy of therapeutic hypothermia in the presence of extended pulselessness.

The Impact of Advances in Post-Mortem Imaging on Forensic Practice

Post-mortem imaging in the form of plain X-ray films has been in use for many years as an adjunct or occasionally as a substitute for autopsy. However, in the last two decades there has been increasing interest and investigation into the use of advanced techniques such as Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in death investigation.
