- Cardiac involvement in critically ill patients with leptospirosis: A prospective study using myocardial deformation imaging. [Journal Article]
- EHEur Heart J Acute Cardiovasc Care 2018 Nov 08; :2048872618809319
- CONCLUSIONS: Cardiac involvement in leptospirosis appears to be similar to that of sepsis syndrome, with myocardial systolic dysfunction being common. As such, clinical vigilance pertaining to cardiac status is paramount in these high-risk patients.

- CONCLUSIONS: If there is multiple ST segment elevation in presentation electrocardiography, clinicians should be aware of possible simultaneous coronary occlusions.

Stress (Takotsubo) cardiomyopathy (SC) is a cardiomyopathy characterised by transient myocardial dysfunction, commonly triggered by a surge in catecholamine. Electrocardiographic features may mimic other conditions, such as myocardial infarction. We presented two cases of SC and reviewed the electrocardiographic features of this disease entity.

Electrocardiogram is a useful tool for the diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome. In recent years, ST-segment changes in aVR have been shown to provide valuable information about coronary anatomy and early risk stratification of this condition.

Mesothelioma is a rare tumor of the pleura, peritoneum, pericardium or tunica vaginalis. About 2,500 cases are diagnosed annually in the United States. Mesothelioma often presents with pleuritic chest pain and dyspnea related to local invasion; distal metastasis and lymphadenopathy at the time of diagnosis is rare. Pericardial involvement in mesothelioma is related to direct invasion of the tumor. We here present a 71 year-old-male who presented with pleuritic chest pain and dyspnea, noted to have diffuse ST-segment elevation in EKG and cardiac tamponade physiology on 2D echocardiogram in who imaging subsequently revealed left upper lung mesothelioma. A pericardial window was created following which tamponade resolved. The pericardial biopsy did not show any mesothelioma cells or fibrous plaques. Computer tomography revealed regional lymphadenopathy in the chest. Disrupted cardiac lymphatic flow due to tumor mesothelioma induced lymphadenopathy is likely cause of the cardiac tamponade in this patient. This is the second ever reported case of pleural mesothelioma without a direct pericardial invasion that presented with cardiac tamponade.
- Repeated cardiac arrest caused by an air embolism during hepatic resection: A case report. [Case Reports]
- MMedicine (Baltimore) 2018; 97(39):e12639
- CONCLUSIONS: Fatal air embolism may happen during hepatic resection. Prompt detection of VAE by TEE is crucial for effective therapy and should always be available during hepatic resection.
- Ischemic QRS prolongation as a biomarker of myocardial injury in STEMI patients. [Journal Article]
- ANAnn Noninvasive Electrocardiol 2018 Sep 28; :e12601
- CONCLUSIONS: Unlike previous experimental studies, the IQP was limited in patients presenting at the emergency room with first-time STEMI and no correlation was found between IQP and CMR variables of myocardial injury in these patients. Therefore, IQP does not seem to be a suitable biomarker for triaging patients in this clinical context.
- Prehospital 12-lead electrocardiogram for patients with chest pain: a pilot study. [Review]
- HKHong Kong Med J 2018; 24(5):484-491
- CONCLUSIONS: Prehospital ECG is technologically feasible in Hong Kong and shortens the D2B time. However, shorter reperfusion time was only recorded during daytime hours.

- [The significance of EEG in the evaluation of arterial hypertension treatment]. [Journal Article]
- ZNZh Nevrol Psikhiatr Im S S Korsakova 2018; 118(8):72-74
- CONCLUSIONS: Normalization of EEG parameters depended only on the AH level was observed in systolic AH <140 mm hg and diastolic AD <90 mm hg in the improvement of general health state during 1-2 month. AH normalization led to disappearance of monophasic spikes, synchronized to ECG R wave, an increase in α-rhythm index, absence of bilateral synchronized spikes. The method of simultaneous recording of AH, ECG and EEG can be used for assessment of AH treatment efficacy and medical-social expertise of patients. The method of biofeedback is effective only when used together with pharmacological treatment of AH according to current treatment standards.
