  • [Drug-induced interstitial lung disease: approaches to diagnostics and treatment]. [Journal Article]
    Ter Arkh. 2020 Apr 27; 92(3):84-91.Anaev EK
  • Drug-induced interstitial lung disease (D-ILD) can be caused by various drugs, including antibiotics, amiodarone, antitumor, rheumatological and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. D-ILD includes hypersensitivity reactions, organizing and non-specific interstitial pneumonia, eosinophilic lung diseases, diffuse alveolar damage and alveolar hypoventilation. To exclude other causes of pulmonary d…
  • Accuracy of radiomics for differentiating diffuse liver diseases on non-contrast CT. [Journal Article]
    Int J Comput Assist Radiol Surg. 2020 Jun 26 [Online ahead of print]Homayounieh F, Saini S, … Kalra MK
  • CONCLUSIONS: Radiomics enable differentiation of healthy liver from hepatic steatosis, cirrhosis, amiodarone deposition, and iron overload from a single section of non-contrast abdominal CT. The high accuracy of radiomics coupled with rapid segmentation of the region of interest, radiomics estimation, and statistical analyses within the same prototype makes a compelling case for bringing radiomics to clinical use for improving reporting in evaluation of healthy liver and diffuse liver diseases.
  • [Iodine-induced thyroid dysfunction]. [Review]
    Med Klin Intensivmed Notfmed. 2020 Jun 24 [Online ahead of print]Eilsberger F, Luster M, Feldkamp J
  • CONCLUSIONS: In iodine-induced hyperthyroidism, antithyroid drugs and perchlorate are primarily used to decrease thyroid hormone synthesis and further iodine uptake into the thyroid. For the prophylaxis of x‑ray contrast agent-induced hyperthyroidism, perchlorate can be administered in high-risk settings in combination with antithyroid drugs, if possible starting one day before the iodine exposure.
  • From Other Journals: A Review of Recent Articles in Pediatric Cardiology. [Review]
    Pediatr Cardiol. 2020 Jun 23 [Online ahead of print]Alsaied T
  • In this review, we provide a brief description of recently published articles addressing topics relevant to pediatric cardiologists. Our hope is to provide a summary of the latest articles published recently in other journals in our field. The articles address the following: (1) transcatheter closure of sinus venous atrial septal defect which is feasible in adults with careful planning, (2) exerc…
  • Cardiovascular Effects of Energy Drinks in the Pediatric Population. [Journal Article]
    Pediatr Emerg Care. 2020 Jun 18 [Online ahead of print]Moussa M, Hansz K, … Izsak E
  • Consumption of energy drinks in the pediatric population is correlated with more emergency department visits and causes adverse reactions, such as neurological, psychiatric, gastrointestinal, renal, and cardiovascular effects. These cardiovascular complications include increased cardiometabolic risk with high intake of sugar, short-term blood pressure increases and a decrease in cerebral blood fl…
  • Causal Link between Ventricular Ectopy and Concussion. [Case Reports]
    Case Rep Med. 2020; 2020:7154120.Neary JP, Singh J, … Potter KL
  • We present a unique case study report of a male individual with a history of mild nonischaemic cardiomyopathy, with no ventricular ectopy, that at the age of 76 years sustained multiple concussions (i.e., mild traumatic brain injury) within a week of each other. Concussion symptoms included cognitive difficulties, "not feeling well," lethargy, fatigue, and signs of depression. He was later medica…
  • Sudden cardiac death due to ventricular fibrillation in a case of giant cell myocarditis. [Case Reports]
    J Cardiol Cases. 2020 Jun; 21(6):224-226.Umei TC, Murata Y, Momiyama Y
  • A 70-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital complaining of shortness of breath. She was diagnosed with acute decompensated heart failure due to left ventricular dysfunction. Her symptoms began to improve with standard therapy for heart failure with diuretics, noninvasive pressure ventilation, and inotropes, but paroxysmal atrial fibrillation and premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) occu…
  • From NAFLD to MAFLD: Implications of a premature change in terminology. [Journal Article]
    Hepatology. 2020 Jun 16 [Online ahead of print]Younossi ZM, Rinella ME, … Loomba R
  • The term nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) was initially introduced by Schaffner in 1986. NAFLD is a clinical entity characterized by the presence of hepatic steatosis affecting at least 5% of hepatocytes in individuals who consume little or no alcohol and who do not have a secondary cause of hepatic steatosis such as viral hepatitis, medications (such as tamoxifen, amiodarone and methotre…
  • Adult Double-Chambered Right Ventricle Associated With Ventricular Tachycardia and New-Onset Heart Failure. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2020 May 14; 12(5):e8122.Patibandla S, Trehan S, … Reddy S
  • A double-chambered right ventricle is an uncommon form of congenital heart disease that is characterized by the division of the right ventricle into a proximal high-pressure chamber and a distal low-pressure chamber. A 70-year-old male presented to the emergency room from his outpatient doctor's office with unstable wide complex ventricular tachycardia with right axis deviation. His ventricular t…
  • Hypercoagulation from Concomitant Administration of Tamoxifen and Warfarin. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2020 May 14; 12(5):e8114.Panahi L, Saenz Ii JA, … Surani S
  • Tamoxifen causing an increase in the anticoagulation effect of warfarin is suggested to be clinically significant, but cases so far have been largely undocumented. Current recommendations advise clinicians to proceed with caution during concomitant therapy. In the presence of other medications known to interact with warfarin, such as antibiotics, proton pump inhibitors, amiodarone, and azole anti…
  • [Effectiveness of the Cox Maze-IV Procedure in Cardiac Surgery Patients With Atrial Fibrillation]. [Journal Article]
    Kardiologiia. 2020 Jun 03; 60(5):991.Trofimov NA, Medvedev AP, … Egorov DV
  • Aim Analyzing a 5-year experience of surgical treatment of cardiosurgical patients with atrial fibrillation (AF).Material and methods The study analyzed results of surgical treatment with extracorporeal circulation in 132 patients with AF who underwent the Maze-IV procedure using a radiofrequency ablator with transmurality feedback from 2013 through 2018.Results Two fatal outcomes were observed i…
  • Esmolol Use in Dual Axis Defibrillation Resistant Ventricular Fibrillation. [Case Reports]
    Case Rep Cardiol. 2020; 2020:7297303.Agrawal A, Cardinale M, … Shah C
  • Cardiac arrest in an event of acute myocardial infarction most commonly results in life-threatening ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation (VF). Patients who remain in VF despite optimal epinephrine, amiodarone, and three or more attempts at 200 joules of biphasic current defibrillation are known to be in an electrical storm. Here, we describe a case of defibrillation refractory VF r…
  • COVID-19 and cardiac arrhythmias: a global perspective on arrhythmia characteristics and management strategies. [Journal Article]
    J Interv Card Electrophysiol. 2020 Jun 03 [Online ahead of print]Gopinathannair R, Merchant FM, … Russo AM
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this global survey of > 1100 EP professionals regarding hospitalized COVID-19 patients, a variety of arrhythmic manifestations were observed, ranging from benign to potentially life-threatening. Observed adverse events related to use of HCQ + AZM included prolonged QTc requiring drug discontinuation as well as Torsade de Pointes. Large prospective studies to better define arrhythmic manifestations as well as the safety of treatment strategies in COVID-19 patients are warranted.
