Background Viral infections are pervasive and leading causes of myocarditis. Immune-suppression after chemotherapy increases opportunistic infections, but the incidence of virus-induced myocarditis is unknown. Objective An unbiased, blinded screening for RNA viruses was performed after chemotherapy with correlation to cardiac function. Methods Hi...
Article
Background/Introduction: More than moderate tricuspid regurgitation (TR) at baseline is associated with worse outcome in MitraClip patients. The presence of iatrogenic ASD (iASD) may cause right-sided volume overload and lead to adverse events. However, the real effects of iASD are not well-investigated in these patients who are vulnerable to right...
Article
Introduction: Chemotherapy for hematologic malignancies can cause severe cardiomyopathy. Chemotherapeutic agents also induce immune suppression increasing the risk of opportunistic infections. Hypothesis: We have hypothesized that immunosuppression after chemotherapy increases opportunistic viral infections, myocarditis and cardiomyopathy. Methods:...

Introduction We report a case of Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 infection with acute pancreatitis as the only presenting symptom. To the best of our knowledge, there are few case reports of the same presentation. Case presentation An otherwise healthy 44-year-old white male from Egypt presented to the hospital with severe epigastr...

In this article, we report a case of a 61-year-old male who was diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2), presenting with acute respiratory distress syndrome requiring intubation and hemodynamic support, marked D-Dimer and troponin I elevation, worsening ST-elevation myocardial infarction on repeat electrocardiogr...

Right atrial (RA) masses are rare, challenging to diagnose, and potentially life-threatening with high mortality if untreated. We present a patient presenting with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma in the brain that was incidentally found to have a large RA mass. For a better definition of the RA mass, extensive workup using multimodality imaging inclu...

Objective: We review prior studies on the incidence of hypertension (HTN) after earthquakes and present a retrospective analysis of HTN after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Methods: Prior reports on HTN incidence were reviewed and a retrospective chart review for diagnosis of HTN in 4,308 patient charts was performed over a 7 year period (five clini...
Article
Introduction: The right ventricle (RV) strain measured by speckle tracking (RVS) is an echocardiographic parameter used to assess RV function. We compared RVS to RV fractional area change (FAC%), tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion (TAPSE) and Doppler tissue imaging-derived peak systolic velocity (S') in the assessment of right ventricular...

Pulmonary vein (PV) stenosis is a rare and serious complication of radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) for atrial fibrillation. However, it can be asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic depending on the severity of the stenosis and the development of compensatory mechanisms. This study provides a detailed description and visualization of a unique t...

Infective endocarditis (IE) is classified as an infection of any cardiac valve or endocardial surface and is often associated with high morbidity and mortality. Certain bacteria such as gram-positive cocci and viridans group streptococci have high predilection for both naïve and damaged cardiac valvular tissues, accounting for the majority of IE ca...

Acute pericarditis (AP), or pericardial sac inflammation, is a self-limited condition in healthy individuals. Viruses, including adenoviruses, enteroviruses, cytomegalovirus, and influenza virus, have been well documented to cause AP. In contrast, human metapneumovirus (hMPV), a relatively newer virus, has been described in a few cases to cause ser...

A 79-year-old man was admitted for a transcatheter aortic valve replacement due to severe aortic stenosis. A preoperative chest computed tomography with angiography revealed an apical variant hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with a prominent apical pouch. In addition, there was near-complete obliteration of the left ventricle in the mid to apical aspect...
Article
Full-text available
Introduction: Nonbacterial thrombotic endocarditis (NBTE) is characterized by the presence of organized thrombi on cardiac valves, often associated with malignancy, antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). There is a paucity of data regarding the predictors of mortality in NBTE patients. Hypothesis: Identify risk fac...

Introduction Systolic right ventricular (RV) function has prognostic significance both in acquired and congenital heart diseases. However accurate assessment of RV ejection fraction (EF) with transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) remains challenging due to the complex geometric shape of the RV. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) remains the gold stand...

Background: Split dose bowel preparations (SDP) have superior outcomes for colonoscopy as compared to evening before regimens. However, the association of the actual volume of the SDP to colonoscopy outcome measures has not been well studied. Aims: Compare adenoma detection rate (ADR), sessile serrated polyp detection rate (SDR), mean bowel clea...
