The camera is rotated 180 or 360 degrees around the patient to capture images at multiple positions along the arc. The computer is then used to reconstruct the transaxial, sagittal, and coronal images from the 3-dimensional distribution of radionuclides in the organ. The advantages of SPECT are that it can be used to observe biochemical and physiological processes as well as size and volume of the organ. The disadvantage is that, unlike positron-emission tomography where the positron-electron annihilation results in the emission of 2 photons at 180 degrees from each other, SPECT requires physical collimation to line up the photons, which results in the loss of many available photons and hence degrades the image.Angina Pectoris: The symptom of paroxysmal pain consequent to MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA usually of distinctive character, location and radiation. It is thought to be provoked by a transient stressful situation during which the oxygen requirements of the MYOCARDIUM exceed that supplied by the CORONARY CIRCULATION.Famous PersonsBrazilCoronary Artery Bypass: Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.Fluoroscopy: Production of an image when x-rays strike a fluorescent screen.

The US Food and Drug Administration investigational device exemptions (IDE) and clinical investigation of cardiovascular devices: information for the investigator. (1/926)

The conduct of a clinical investigation of a medical device to determine the safety and effectiveness of the device is covered by the investigational device exemptions (IDE) regulation. The purpose of IDE regulation is "to encourage, to the extent consistent with the protection of public health and safety and with ethical standards, the discovery and development of useful devices intended for human use, and to that end to maintain optimum freedom for scientific investigators in their pursuit of this purpose" (Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act). Conducting a clinical investigation may require an approved IDE application. The US Food and Drug Administration encourages early interaction with the agency through the pre-IDE process during the development of a device or technology and during the preparation of an IDE application. This facilitates approval of the IDE application and progression into the clinical investigation. This paper reviews the terminology and applicability of the IDE regulation and the type of study that requires an IDE application to the Food and Drug Administration. The pre-IDE process and the development of an IDE application for a significant risk study of a cardiovascular device are discussed.  (+info)

Evaluation of technician supervised treadmill exercise testing in a cardiac chest pain clinic. (2/926)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the efficacy and safety of trained cardiac technicians independently performing treadmill exercise stress tests as part of the assessment of patients with suspected angina pectoris. DESIGN: Retrospective comparison of 250 exercise tests performed by cardiac technicians and 225 tests performed by experienced cardiology clinical assistants (general practitioners who perform regular NHS cardiology duties), and consultant cardiologists over the same time period. SETTING: Regional cardiac centre with a dedicated cardiac chest pain clinic. PATIENTS: All patients were referred by their general practitioners with a history of recent onset of chest pain, which was suspected to be angina pectoris. OUTCOME MEASURES: Peak workload achieved, symptoms, indications for termination, complications. RESULTS: The diagnostic yield of technician supervised tests (percentage positive or negative) was similar to that of medically supervised tests (76% v 69%, NS). The average peak workload achieved by patients was less by 1.2 mets (p < 0.005). This was probably due to more tests being terminated earlier due to chest pain and ST segment depression in the technician group compared with doctors (10% and 16% v 5% and 11% respectively, p = 0.06 and 0.07). One patient in the technician supervised group developed a supraventricular tachycardia during the recovery phase of the exercise test. CONCLUSIONS: Technician supervised stress testing is associated with a high diagnostic rate and low complication rate in patients with suspected ischaemic heart disease. Its efficacy is comparable to tests supervised by experienced doctors and its use should be encouraged.  (+info)

Development of a heart failure center: a medical center and cardiology practice join forces to improve care and reduce costs . (3/926)

Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a rapidly growing and expensive cardiovascular disorder. Conventional care for CHF is ineffective and results in a cycle of "crisis management" that includes repeated emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and physician visits. Recently, a number of outpatient coronary care centers that provide consistent, aggressive outpatient therapies and extensive patient education have emerged and are successfully breaking this cycle of dependence on hospital services. One such effort is the Heart Institute's Heart Failure Center, the result of a partnership between a private-practice cardiology group and our tertiary-care medical center. Our program includes not only patient education and outpatient infusions of inotropic agents, but an electronic linkage to the emergency department and home healthcare services. Preliminary data show that 16 months after the program was initiated, hospital admissions decreased by 30%, hospital days by 42% and average length of stay by 17%. An effective outpatient heart failure program can alleviate the economic burden of CHF and improve the quality of patient care.  (+info)

The Framingham Offspring Study: a commentary. 1980. (4/926)

Forty-three of 1,312 men aged 35 to 54 years in the Framingham Offspring Study had clinically recognized coronary heart disease at the initial examination. Twenty-six men in this group had previously had a myocardial infarction. Of 1,296 women in the same age range, only 11 had coronary disease and 3 a prior myocardial infarction. The prevalence of coronary heart disease in men was strongly associated with age, smoking, high density lipoprotein (HDL), low density lipoprotein (LDL) and total cholesterol using univariate analyses. When multivariate logistic regression analysis was used, age, smoking and HDL and LDL cholesterol retained their significant association with coronary heart disease. The total cholesterol/HDL cholesterol ratio was also strongly associated with coronary heart disease in the multivariate analysis. It is concluded that both HDL and LDL cholesterol are strongly and independently associated with the prevalence of coronary heart disease, whereas the level of very low density lipoprotein cholesterol makes no statistically significant independent contribution.  (+info)

A view from the millennium: the practice of cardiology circa 1950 and thereafter. (5/926)

The knowledge and treatment of cardiology as practiced circa 1950 is discussed as abstracted from authoritative textbooks of that time and other sources. Advances in treatment and diagnostic techniques since 1950 are presented. Dramatic changes in cardiology have come at the expense of bedside cardiology which needs to be balanced with the technology.  (+info)

A prognostic computer model to individually predict post-procedural complications in interventional cardiology: the INTERVENT Project. (6/926)

AIMS: The purpose of this part of the INTERVENT project was (1) to redefine and individually predict post-procedural complications associated with coronary interventions, including alternative/adjunctive techniques to PTCA and (2) to employ the prognostic INTERVENT computer model to clarify the structural relationship between (pre)-procedural risk factors and post-procedural outcome. METHODS AND RESULTS: In a multicentre study, 2500 data items of 455 consecutive patients (mean age: 61.1+/-8.3 years: 33-84 years) undergoing coronary interventions at three university centres were analysed. 80.4% of the patients were male, 16.7% had unstable angina, and 5.1%/10.1% acute/subacute myocardial infarction. There were multiple or multivessel stenoses in 16.0%, vessel bending >90 degrees in 14.5%, irregular vessel contours in 65.0%, moderate calcifications in 20.9%, moderate/severe vessel tortuosity in 53.2% and a diameter stenosis of 90%-99% in 44.4% of cases. The in-lab (out-of-lab) complications were: 0.4% (0.9%) death, 1.8% (0.2%) abrupt vessel closure with myocardial infarction and 5.5% (4.0) haemodynamic disorders. CONCLUSION: Computer algorithms derived from artificial intelligence were able to predict the individual risk of these post-procedural complications with an accuracy of >95% and to explain the structural relationship between risk factors and post-procedural complications. The most important prognostic factors were: heart failure (NYHA class), use of adjunctive/alternative techniques (rotablation, atherectomy, laser), acute coronary ischaemia, pre-existent cardiac medication, stenosis length, stenosis morphology (calcification), gender, age, amount of contrast agent and smoker status. Pre-medication with aspirin or other cardiac medication had a beneficial effect. Techniques, such as laser angioplasty or atherectomy were predictors for post-procedural complications. Single predictors alone were not able to describe the individual outcome completely.  (+info)

Establishment of a simple and practical procedure applicable to therapeutic angiogenesis. (7/926)

BACKGROUND: Therapeutic angiogenesis is thought to be beneficial for serious ischemic diseases. This investigation was designed to establish a simple and practical procedure applicable to therapeutic angiogenesis. METHODS AND RESULTS: When cultured skeletal muscle cells were electrically stimulated at a voltage that did not cause their contraction, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) mRNA was augmented at an optimal-frequency stimulation. This increase of VEGF mRNA was derived primarily from transcriptional activation. Electrical stimulation increased the secretion of VEGF protein into the medium. This conditioned medium then augmented the growth of endothelial cells. The effect of electrical stimulation was further confirmed in a rat model of hindlimb ischemia. The tibialis anterior muscle in the ischemic limb was electrically stimulated. The frequency of stimulation was 50 Hz and strength was 0.1 V, which was far below the threshold for muscle contraction. After a 5-day stimulation, there was a significant increase in blood flow within the muscle. Immunohistochemical analysis revealed that VEGF protein was synthesized and capillary density was significantly increased in the stimulated muscle. Rats tolerated this procedure very well, and there was no muscle contraction, muscle injury, or restriction in movement. CONCLUSIONS: We propose this procedure as a simple and practical method of therapeutic angiogenesis.  (+info)

The association between hospital volume and survival after acute myocardial infarction in elderly patients. (8/926)

BACKGROUND: Patients with chest pain thought to be due to acute coronary ischemia are typically taken by ambulance to the nearest hospital. The potential benefit of field triage directly to a hospital that treats a large number of patients with myocardial infarction is unknown. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of the relation between the number of Medicare patients with myocardial infarction that each hospital in the study treated (hospital volume) and long-term survival among 98,898 Medicare patients 65 years of age or older. We used proportional-hazards methods to adjust for clinical, demographic, and health-system-related variables, including the availability of invasive procedures, the specialty of the attending physician, and the area of residence of the patient (rural, urban, or metropolitan). RESULTS: The patients in the quartile admitted to hospitals with the lowest volume were 17 percent more likely to die within 30 days after admission than patients in the quartile admitted to hospitals with the highest volume (hazard ratio, 1.17; 95 percent confidence interval, 1.09 to 1.26; P<0.001), which resulted in 2.3 more deaths per 100 patients. The crude mortality rate at one year was 29.8 percent among the patients admitted to the lowest-volume hospitals, as compared with 27.0 percent among those admitted to the highest-volume hospitals. There was a continuous inverse dose-response relation between hospital volume and the risk of death. In an analysis of subgroups defined according to age, history of cardiac disease, Killip class of infarction, presence or absence of contraindications to thrombolytic therapy, and time from the onset of symptoms, survival at high-volume hospitals was consistently better than at low-volume hospitals. The availability of technology for angioplasty and bypass surgery was not independently associated with overall mortality. CONCLUSIONS: Patients with acute myocardial infarction who are admitted directly to hospitals that have more experience treating myocardial infarction, as reflected by their case volume, are more likely to survive than are patients admitted to low-volume hospitals.  (+info)

With hundreds of EMR choices on the market, doctors may find it a challenge to select the appropriate software for their practice. However, understanding what to search for in an EMR system for your cardiology practice will make the process a lot simpler, which is what this guide is here to do.. First, to find the right EMR for your cardiology practice, you should look for software that is designed specifically for cardiologists or a similar specialty. This is because cardiology EMR software is customized to deal with the unique characteristics of treating heart conditions. Cardiologists rely heavily on medical devices to help monitor and detect abnormalities of the heart so your software choice should be able to integrate with ECG, ECHO, Spirometers, and other devices.. Cardiology also involves many lab and imaging tests, so your EMR should able to receive and analyze the large amounts of data for each patient. Additionally, many of your patients may be suffering from time-sensitive or ...
Nearly two out of five people with diabetes who could benefit from statin therapy were not prescribed one, according to a research letter published Sept. 12 in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. The analysis, which uses data from ACCs PINNACLE Registry, also showed wide variation in statin use across cardiology practices.. Yashashwi Pokharel, MD, MSCR, and colleagues examined practice-level variations in statin therapy among 40-75 year old patients with diabetes and no overt cardiovascular disease between May 2008 and October 2013 - before the present guidelines were issued. A total of 215,193 patients from 204 cardiology practices were included in the study.. The researchers found that 38 percent of patients with diabetes were not taking a statin. Compared with patients not receiving statins, those on statins had a higher prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors, were more likely to receive non-statin cholesterol-lowering therapy (28 vs. 13 percent) and had lower mean LDL ...

The American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association task force (ACC/AHA 2007 guidelines) has assigned Class I recommendation for oxygen use to correct arterial oxygen desaturation (Sao2 ,90%) and Class IIa recommendation for all patients with unstable angina/non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction and uncomplicated ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction within the first 6 h after presentation. The rationale for oxygen use is based on 2 assumptions: 1) that increasing arterial oxygen tension decreases the acute ischemic injury and the eventual infarct area (5,6); and 2) the observation that some patients with uncomplicated myocardial infarction have arterial hypoxemia due to fluid retention in the lungs and a ventilation-perfusion mismatch.. However, the evidence supporting these assumptions is limited. Moreover, we are not aware of any studies demonstrating that normoxic subjects undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention for acute myocardial infarction derive any benefit ...

UPDATED) Patrick Whitlow, MD, the long-time director of interventional cardiology at the Cleveland Clinic, died early this morning following complications from diabetes. He was 65.. As "a giant of interventional cardiology," Whitlow "literally founded interventional cardiology at the Cleveland Clinic, decades ago," his colleague of many years, Steven Nissen, MD (Cleveland Clinic, OH), told TCTMD. "He trained an entire generation of interventional cardiologists, and he cared for I cant tell you how many tens of thousands of patients-its incalculable.". Ted Feldman, MD (NorthShore University HealthSystem, Evanston, IL), told TCTMD that Whitlow "was one of the really most gifted interventional physicians in the US. He is someone I would have gone to without hesitation if I needed interventional therapy." Whitlow will be remembered as a "virtuoso in the lab who also was a critical thinker and really contributed a great deal to the development of interventional cardiology," he added.. Samir ...

Whereas physicians acknowledge their ethical obligation to serve the best interests of their patients (1,7,10,16), health care insurers have not articulated their ethical responsibility to pay in a timely manner. The 29th Bethesda Conference on Ethics in Cardiovascular Medicine criticized the medical business community for its lack of an ethical framework (2). The Conference concluded that the medical business community uses financial interests to justify policies that, in the framework of medical ethics, are unethical. This contrast between physicians attempts to develop principles of medical ethics and the medical business communitys apathy for them extends to the arena of coding and reimbursement. Whereas physicians have advocated ethical coding and billing procedures (5,6,8,10,15), insurers have not acknowledged a responsibility to minimize unnecessary complexity, delays and inappropriate denials of claims. In fact, Medicare and other insurance carriers have done the opposite by applying ...

Cardiovascular Medicine - Areas of research include lipoprotein metabolism and the role of macrophages in atherosclerosis. A major goal is to identify mechanisms for formation of dysfunctional HDL in human diseases, with a focus on familial hypercholesterolemia. We have a long-standing interest in the roles of apoE, apoA-I, SR-BI, and LRP in lipoprotein metabolism, macrophage cholesterol homeostasis and HDL function. Interestingly, the HDL microRNA profile is altered in FH, and we are examining the impact of the altered microRNA profile on HDL function as well as the potential for these microRNAs to serve as markers and therapeutic targets for the prevention of atherosclerosis. In addition, we are interested in the mechanisms regulating macrophage survival and efferocytosis in atherosclerosis. Interested candidates should email CV to:. MacRae F. Linton, M.D..

In a cohort of treated preventive cardiology clinic patients, WC predicted all-cause mortality after adjustment for commonly measured CV risk factors. Extrapolating from data presented in Table 3, a 10 cm difference in WC was associated with an increase in all-cause mortality of 20% for both genders, in DM prevalence of 40% and 50%, and CAD prevalence of 10% and 20%, for men and women, respectively. In contrast, BMI did not associate with all-cause mortality and CAD but did associate with DM prevalence. These data support the clinical utility of WC over BMI for mortality as well as DM and CAD risk prediction and support the use of obesity-specific interventions that target WC reduction and abdominal obesity rather than weight loss alone (e.g., exercise training) to improve CV outcomes in high risk populations.. The apparent lack of association of BMI with CAD and mortality demonstrated in this study is consistent with some reports (22,23,24,25), but it conflicts with population studies that have ...

First of all, cardiology practice has changed. Cardiology specialists and subspecialists are now increasingly employees of huge health care systems as a result of the health care reform efforts underway. Increasingly, our subspecialties of cardiovascular medicine and cardiac electrophysiology are divided and continue to diverge clincially as knowledge and discovery expands at an unprecedented pace in both fields. As a result of these realities, there is little need any longer for electropysiologists to understand the nuanced differences between various glycoprotein GIIa/IIIb inhibitors, for instance. EPs just need to know that all of these drugs make patients pacemaker pockets bleed more after surgery. Likewise, do electrophysiologists really need to know the differences between multi-detector CT and SPECT scanning protocols for the diagnostic evaluation of coronary disease in our new subspecialized world of medicine that remains far too litiginous? Electrophysiologists would be foolhardy to ...

The PIMs may provide 20 to 40 points each, and completion of 1 such module (20 points) is an absolute requirement. This means that if one completes 100 points based on the home study modules and simulation, this will not suffice without completion of a PIM. There are several types of PIMs though the only interventional cardiology-oriented PIM at this point is the door-to-balloon time continuous quality improvement (CQI) module offered by the ACC. The American College of Physicians offers a CQI on general Cardiovascular Risk, and the American Board of Internal Medicine also has a preventive cardiology practice performance module, and those are valid options too.. The main goal of a PIM is to require the physicians direct the collection of patient care-related data using widely accepted methods, evaluate the quality of outcomes against established guidelines, identify weaknesses, select targets for improvements, implement changes, and document that improved quality was assured after the changes. ...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is prevalent in the elderly, in patients with hypertension, and in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). We hypothesized that statin therapy might be effective in preventing AF in patients with CAD and examined this hypothesis in a sample of patients with chronic stable CAD without AF, followed prospectively at a large outpatient cardiology practice. The association between statin use and the risk of developing AF was examined univariately and then with adjustment for potential confounding factors. Four hundred forty-nine men and women between the ages of 40 and 87 years were followed for an average of 5 years. Fifty-two patients (12%) developed AF during follow-up. Statin therapy was used by 59% of the patients during the study period and was associated with a significantly reduced risk of developing AF (crude odds ratio, 0.48, 95% confidence interval 0.28 to 0.83). This association remained significant after adjustment for potential confounders, including age,

Atrial fibrillation can be caused by sleep apnea therefore 100% of patients with SAtrial Fibrillation should be evaluated for sleep apnea. Patients with Atrial Fibrillation should be tested even if they have none of the commonly seen symptoms of apnea such as snoring, excessive tirednedd, weight gain or hypertension. Many patients have sleep apnea but do not fit picture often associated with apnea. Unfortunately while the percentage of patients with sleep apnea in cardiology offices may be as high as 70% it is estimated only 10-20% are ever diagnosed. I have recently created a new company Sleep Well Illinois to set up UNIVERSAL SLEEP APNEA SCREENING IN CARDIOLOGY PRACTICES AND INTERNAL MEDICINE OFFICES. https://www.sleepandhealth.com/node/653.

Results from the PRISON IV Trial Presented at TCT 2016 and Simultaneously Published in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions. WASHINGTON - November 2, 2016 - Results from a randomized, multicenter trial failed to show non-inferiority of hybrid, ultra-thin strut sirolimus-eluting stents (Osiro SES) with a biodegradable polymer compared to thin-strut everolimus-eluting stents (Xience EES) with a durable polymer in terms of in-segment late lumen loss in successfully treated chronic total occlusions. In addition, although the rate of binary restenosis was low overall in this complex lesion subset, it was higher with the Osirio SES compared with the Xience EES.. Findings from the PRISON IV trial were reported today at the 28th annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) scientific symposium. Sponsored by the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF), TCT is the worlds premier educational meeting specializing in interventional cardiovascular medicine.

During inspiration, the chest wall expands and causes the intrathoracic pressure to become more negative (think of a vacuum). The increased negative pressure allows the lungs to fill with air and expand. While doing so, it also induces an increase in venous blood return from the body into the right atrium via the superior and inferior venae cavae, and into the right ventricle by increasing the pressure gradient (blood is being pulled by the vacuum from the body and towards the right side of the heart). Simultaneously, there is a reduction in blood volume returning from the lungs into the left atrium (the blood wants to stay in the lungs because of the vacuum surrounding the lungs, and PVR is lower because of lung expansion). Since there is an increase in blood volume in the right ventricle during inspiration, the pulmonary valve (P2 component of S2) stays open longer during ventricular systole due to an increase in ventricular emptying time, whereas the aortic valve (A2 component of S2) closes ...
