A 65-year-old patient underwent pericardiocentesis for cardiac tamponade after radiofrequency ablation for ventricular tachycardia. Subsequent to stabilization, the patient developed pneumopericardium, which was detected in the catheterization laboratory and managed successfully by pericardial aspiration.

Ventricular arrhythmias are common after left ventricular assist device implantation. Malposition of the inflow cannula is one of the few etiologies with a mechanically correctable defect. We present a case of intractable ventricular tachycardia that resolved after surgical repositioning of a HeartMate II inflow cannula. The diagnosis and management of this case demonstrate the utility of imaging studies for detecting inflow cannula malposition and the efficacy of inflow cannula repositioning for treatment.

Molsidomine is a well-known vasodilatating, antianginal drug. Despite earlier studies with its metabolites (3-morpholino-syndnonimine (SIN-1) and N-nitroso-N-morpholino-amino-acetonitrile (SIN-1A)), which indicated a potential favorable cardioprotective activity, a lot of controversy remains. The aim of our research was to compare molsidomine, SIN-1, SIN-1A, and lidocaine influence on arrhythmias and hemodynamic parameters in 2 experimental models in rats. In the Langendorff heart study, SIN-1A markedly elevated left ventricular systolic pressure, maximum rise and fall of the first pressure derivative, coronary flow, and myocardial oxygen consumption. In addition, SIN-1A more so than SIN-1 significantly lowered creatine kinase release. The antiarrhythmic action of SIN-1 was observed, while lidocaine significantly diminished ventricular arrhythmias duration in comparison with the control. In the ischemia-reperfusion-induced arrhythmias model, hypotensive action of molsidomine was observed as well as the reduction in pressure rate product. Molsidomine also prolonged ventricular tachycardia duration. On the other hand, no significant effects on hemodynamic parameters as well as on ventricular arrhythmias were found in any of the SIN-1 and SIN-1A groups. In conclusion, our research suggests a possible direct, cardioprotective action of SIN-1A. It seems worthwhile to further investigate molsidomine derivatives, especially SIN-1A, because of its potential use in invasive cardiology procedures such as percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty.
