The period following a surgical operation.
The voltage differences across a membrane. For cellular membranes they are computed by subtracting the voltage measured outside the membrane from the voltage measured inside the membrane. They result from differences of inside versus outside concentration of potassium, sodium, chloride, and other ions across cells' or ORGANELLES membranes. For excitable cells, the resting membrane potentials range between -30 and -100 millivolts. Physical, chemical, or electrical stimuli can make a membrane potential more negative (hyperpolarization), or less negative (depolarization).
Connective tissue cells which secrete an extracellular matrix rich in collagen and other macromolecules.
Abnormal cardiac rhythm that is characterized by rapid, uncoordinated firing of electrical impulses in the upper chambers of the heart (HEART ATRIA). In such case, blood cannot be effectively pumped into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES). It is caused by abnormal impulse generation.

An electrophysiologic technique for studying cells, cell membranes, and occasionally isolated organelles. All patch-clamp methods rely on a very high-resistance seal between a micropipette and a membrane; the seal is usually attained by gentle suction. The four most common variants include on-cell patch, inside-out patch, outside-out patch, and whole-cell clamp. Patch-clamp methods are commonly used to voltage clamp, that is control the voltage across the membrane and measure current flow, but current-clamp methods, in which the current is controlled and the voltage is measured, are also used.

How is Control Area Criteria Task Force abbreviated? CACTF stands for Control Area Criteria Task Force. CACTF is defined as Control Area Criteria Task Force very rarely.
The indications included in this publication cover a variety of cardiovascular signs and symptoms as well as clinical judgments as to the likelihood of cardiovascular findings. Within each main disease category, a standardized approach was used to capture a significant number of clinical scenarios without making the list of indications excessive. The term indication is used interchangeably with clinical scenario in the document for brevity and does not imply that imaging should necessarily be done. Diagnostic catheterization may include several different procedure components. The indications developed focused primarily on 2 aspects of diagnostic catheterization. Many indications focused on the performance of coronary angiography for the detection of coronary artery disease (CAD), with other procedure components (e.g., hemodynamic measurements, ventriculography) performed at the discretion of the operator. The majority of the remaining indications focused on hemodynamic measurements to ...

Transradial access (TRA) has been considered as the default choice in cardiac catheterization. Although infrequent, vascular complications of this approach remain. Recently, the distal transradial approach (dTRA) in cardiac catheterization was reported by interventionalists. We retrieved the relevant literatures and reviewed the safety and feasibility of this novel approach in cardiac catheterization. The dTRA for cardiac intervention has superior safety and satisfaction. As a novel approach for cardiac catheterization, access related complications should also be considered by operators, such as RAO, radial spasm, bleeding and haematoma, and injury of the superficial branch of the radial nerve. The dTRA in cardiovascular angiography and intervention was safe and feasible.

Appropriate use criteria (AUC) have been developed for a variety of cardiovascular tests and services. AUC are based on the best available evidence with the goal of identifying which clinical scenarios are likely to result in net patient benefit or harm. Little is known about how well physicians on the clinical care frontlines know about and apply AUC when making decisions about care. Patients do not have a role in developing AUC; their reflections on appropriateness of care have not been well studied.. We conducted an anonymous survey of patients and health care providers and asked them to rate the appropriateness of myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) for a series of clinical scenarios. We also gathered data on attitudes and awareness of issues related to AUC. We hypothesized that patients and providers would overestimate the appropriateness of MPI compared with the published AUC. We asked respondents to use the same scale used to develop the AUC; they rated 5 clinical scenarios from 1 (bad ...

The American College of Cardiology, along with several partnering organizations, today released updated appropriate use criteria for performing coronary revascularization in patients with stable ischemic heart disease.
To apply more appropriate labels to utilization norms, new terminology has been approved for the ACCFs Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC). Starting with the set of AUC released last month covering the use of implantable defibrillators, future criteria will be categorized as appropriate, maybe appropriate, and rarely appropriate. This replaces the original AUC terms: appropriate, uncertain, and inappropriate. In an AUC Methodology Update, published online at JACC on February 22, the AUC Task Force notes that the categorical nature of the original AUC terminology often led to misperceptions by all stakeholders about when a procedure may be considered for a patient.. Peter L. Duffy, MD, was one interventionalist who came to believe that use of the term inappropriate was itself inappropriate. I think its really important that we get rid of that term, said the director of cardiovascular quality at Reid Heart Center, Pinehurst, North Carolina. There are always cases where we all agree that while ...

Abstract:. Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS), is something whose mere mention implies different things to different people. It is a syndrome immersed in stereotypes by the North American society in which we live, the majority of which are sadly negative. In the paper that follows, though written from a North American perspective, I will refrain from examining the specifics of these stereotypes, for to acknowledge them would only give them attention that I do not believe that they deserve in the context of this article.. This paper is about FAS and the way we, as a North American society, educate people about its known, and possible, causes. The paper is split into six sections. It begins by looking at a history of the discovery of FAS and Fetal Alcohol Effects, (FAE) and goes on to define each to avoid confusion within the paper. Having dealt with descriptions of FAS/FAE, it briefly examines four articles that offer a contrasting view to that of the mother being soley responsible for a child with ...

Is this stent necessary? Is this angioplasty inappropriate? Is this cardiologist uncertain if the procedure will help? Ever since the Appropriate Use Criteria for Coronary Revascularization were published, the three category labels of appropriate, uncertain, and inappropriate have confused the profession, press and population at large. The issue of definitions had still not been addressed in the most recent update of the AUC.. So (drumroll, please) yesterday, new categories were approved by the ACC Appropriateness Use Criteria Working Group. The new terminology will be Appropriate, May Be Appropriate(which replaces Uncertain), and Rarely Appropriate (which replaces Inappropriate).. I have written about this a number of times, most recently last December in my post, A Stent By Any Other Name, in which I called for a change:. My recommendation is that a committee be organized to rework the terminology used in the guidelines - a kind of guidelines for the guidelines committee. ...
The wide-spread use of drug-eluting stents (DES) has evolved as standard of care in de novo lesions. The PROMUS Element Plus Everolimus-Eluting Platinum Chromium Coronary Stent System is indicated for improving luminal diameter in patients with symptomatic heart disease or documented silent ischemia due to de novo lesions in native coronary arteries ≥2.25 mm to ≤4.00 mm in diameter in lesions ≤34 mm in length. The proposed study will compile real-world clinical outcomes data for the PROMUS Element Plus Everolimus-Eluting Platinum Chromium Coronary Stent System in routine clinical practice.. Patients enrolled in this study are expected to follow antiplatelet therapy recommendations per American College of Cardiology (ACC)/American Heart Association (AHA)/Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) guidelines for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Recommended medications include aspirin, which should be taken for 3 days prior to the procedure or as a ...
At first, the US governments plan to bundle Medicare payments related to MI care and bypass surgery was met with what seemed like lukewarm curiosity. But now it seems the muted reaction could be blamed on procrastination. Fully 175 responses-among them a detailed letter by the American College of Cardiology (ACC)-made it into the Federal Register before the close of public comment on October 3.. The proposal was announced by the Department of Health & Human Services in July and, as reported by TCTMD, only eight individuals had commented by late September..

In this trial, criteria defining SAHF were inclusive of nearly every heart failure risk factor. Whereas this heterogeneity may have confounded results, as patients with different risk factors may progress to SBHF at different rates, a positive outcome would have been remarkably generalizable. It would also support revision of the appropriate use criteria for echocardiography, which currently do not consider screening to be indicated in most circumstances (4). There may also have been positive implications for health care costs, though it is unclear whether the added costs of screening and treatment would offset cost savings from delayed disease progression.. In excluding patients with pre-existing SBHF, Yang et al. (3) assigned a conservative cutoff of LVEF (,40%) as abnormal. Patients with mid-range EF (40% to 53%) without diastolic dysfunction or abnormal GLS were not considered to have SBHF. Whereas this may be controversial, it is not unreasonable; treatment of mid-rage EF has not shown ...
Greetings from Dallas, Texas, where the springtimes warmth and emerging colors are upon us. This has been a wonderful year to be a part of the SRS team, as the Societys productivity has never been greater.. Much has happened since our last newsletter in December. We held a productive Board of Directors (BOD) meeting during the February 2012 American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California, USA. From the committee reports delivered, our 33 committees and ten taskforces are hard at work completing their numerous charges. These are year-long tasks and were fortunate to have strong leaders in the committee chair positions. The next day, we held a half-day seminar on the development of Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) and Medical Decision Modeling. Teryl Nuckols, MD, an expert with the RAND Corporation, joined us as we further explored this concept for our Society. Earlier in October 2011 at the Cabinet Meeting, wed held an introductory half-day primer ...

The clinical utility of PET and PET/CT scanning as surveillance in asymptomatic patients or patients with chronic stable symptoms to detect disease recurrence is not well studied. Routine surveillance with PET and PET/CT scans in asymptomatic patients has not been shown to improve survival, provide better quality of life or impact the ability to palliate recurrent disease (make cancer or its symptoms less severe or unpleasant) and is therefore not recommended. The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) clinical practice guidelines (Treatment of Cancer by Site) and NCCN Imaging Appropriate Use Criteria for various malignancies often note that PET and PET/CT scans are not recommended in asymptomatic individuals. Also, ASCO Choosing Wisely statement issued for providers includes until high level evidence demonstrates that routine surveillance with PET or PET/CT scans helps prolong life or promote well-being after treatment for a specific type of cancer, this practice should not be done.

University Hospital Lausanne, CHUV. Since the mid-nineties, my interest focus on CMR, both with regard to clinical application of CMR and research. After a fellowship in the United States at UC San Francisco in 1995-1997, I launched a CMR clinical service at the University Hospital Zurich, Switzerland. In the early 2000, I could lead some large multicenter trials on perfusion-CMR pathing the way with other large studies to its clinical implementation. My research then focused also on cost-effectiveness of perfusion-CMR and as a founding member of the European CMR registry, we could start to evaluate the performance of perfusion-CMR and other CMR applications in a large multinational setting. In this period, I started to support CMR also by activities in many societies, e.g. be chairing the working group CMR of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), by memberships in many ESC committees, and also as board member of the SCMR and board member of the Swiss Society of Cardiology. In 2009, in a ...

Several months later, in early March of 1982, I attended a meeting of the Aspen Retinal Detachment Society with Dr. Levit and Dr. Verne. The three of us, along with our wives, had an intimate dinner at Poppys Restaurant in Aspen. I discussed Esters idea of forming a new subspecialty society. Everyone at the dinner table enthusiastically applauded the concept.. Fortunately, Roy Levit took prompt action. Immediately after he returned to El Paso, he asked an attorney to incorporate the Vitreous Society as a non-profit organization in his home state. Simultaneously, Allen Verne attacked the process of designing and printing membership certificates. The executive offices of the society were located in Toledo, Ohio, where I maintained my vitreoretinal practice.. With great trepidation, I configured a letter to the invited charter members. After all, we were starting a new professional organization without the sanction, of senior physicians in our field, and we were apprehensive about the way it ...

An analysis of clinical practice guidelines archived on the National Guideline Clearinghouse (NGC) website as of June 2011 demonstrated poor compliance with Institute of Medicine (IOM) standards, with little if any improvement over the past 2 decades, say authors of an article published this month in Archives of Medicine. For the study, 2 reviewers independently screened 130 guidelines selected at random from NGCs website for compliance with 18 of 25 IOM standards.. The overall median number of IOM standards satisfied (out of 18) was 8 (44.4%). Fewer than half of the guidelines surveyed met more than 50% of IOM standards. Barely a third of the guidelines produced by subspecialty societies satisfied more than 50% of the IOM standards surveyed. Information on conflicts of interest was given in fewer than half of the guidelines surveyed. Non-English literature, unpublished data, and/or abstracts were rarely considered in developing guidelines. Differences of opinion among committee members ...
