Prevalence, Outcomes, and Management of Ventricular Arrhythmias in COVID-19 Patients

Nicola Tarantino, Domenico G. Della Rocca, Fengwei Zou, Aung Lin, Andrea Natale, Luigi Di Biase,

Synopsis We review the current data on epidemiology, the clinical significance, the pathophysiologic mechanisms, and the treatment of VAs in the setting of COVID-19. VAs prevail in 0.15-8% of in hospitalized patients, but only sustained and rapid tachyarrhythmias are purportedly associated with a significant increase in mortality. Multiple factors can ...

The combination of coronary sinus ostial atresia/abnormalities and a small persistent left superior vena cava-Opportunity for left ventricular lead implantation and unrecognized source of thromboembolic stroke.

Fengwei Zou, Seth J Worley, Torkel Steen, Matthew McKillop, Santosh Padala, Susan O'Donoghue, Basar Candemir, Khalil Kanjwal, Michael Kaufman, Sahar Mouram, Matthew Sellers, David Strouse, Athanasios Thomaides, Devi Nair, Cyrus A Hadadi, Alexander Kushnir,

<h4>Background</h4>Coronary sinus (CS) ostial atresia/abnormalities prevent access to the CS from the right atrium (RA) for left ventricular (LV) lead implantation. Some patients with CS ostial abnormalities also have a small persistent left superior vena cava (sPLSVC).<h4>Objective</h4>The purpose of this study was to describe CS ostial abnormalities and sPLSVC as ...

Interventional device implantation, Part I: Basic techniques to avoid complications: A hands-on approach.

Fengwei Zou, Vijaywant Brar, Seth J Worley,

<h4>Introduction</h4>The essence of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is biventricular (BiV) pacing, which involves implanting pacing leads in both the right ventricle (RV) and left ventricle (LV). Unlike traditional RV pacing, many hurdles lie ahead of successful LV lead implantation.<h4>Methods and results</h4>In this review, we first highlight the importance of optimizing the ...

Incidence of Cardiac Injury and Associated Poor Outcomes in Hospitalized Patients with COVID-19: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Fengwei Zou, Zhiyong Qian,

<h4>Background: </h4> Increasing number of studies have indicated a link between coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and acute cardiac injury. However, there is currently no consensus on the incidence of cardiac injury and its associated prognosis in COVID-19 patients. <h4>Methods: </h4> We searched PubMed and Embase for studies that evaluated cardiac ...

Reversal of the antiplatelet effect of ticagrelor by simulated platelet transfusion.

Shuhua Zhang, Ke Xu, Lianlian Mei, Hui Zhu, Jimin Li, Fei Wang, Lu Yang, Jing Zhang, Yuansheng Fan, Fengwei Zou, Kelecia Niles, John W Eikelboom, Chunjian Li,

<h4>Background</h4>Reversal of antiplatelet therapy is desirable in patients presenting with life-threatening bleeding or requiring urgent surgery. This study aimed to examine ticagrelor reversal using donor platelets and to explore the effects of residual ticagrelor on donor platelets.<h4>Study design and methods</h4>In Cohort 1, 16 healthy subjects were treated with ticagrelor 90 mg ...

Permanent His bundle pacing in heart failure patients: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Zhiyong Qian, Fengwei Zou, Yao Wang, Yuanhao Qiu, Xing Chen, Hai Jiang, Xiaofeng Hou,

<h4>Background</h4>Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is the standard-of-care therapy for the patients with heart failure and left ventricular (LV) dyssynchrony. However, approximately 30% of the patients show no response. Recent studies have shown that His bundle pacing (HBP) could be an alternative for the patients with CRT indications. The purpose of ...

Efficacy and safety of cilostazol based triple antiplatelet treatment versus dual antiplatelet treatment in patients undergoing coronary stent implantation: an updated meta-analysis of the randomized controlled trials.

Jun Chen, Haoyu Meng, Lei Xu, Jie Liu, Deyu Kong, Pengsheng Chen, Xiaoxuan Gong, Jianling Bai, Fengwei Zou, Zhijian Yang, Chunjian Li, John W Eikelboom,

The aim of this study was to obtain best estimates of the efficacy and safety of cilostazol-based triple antiplatelet therapy (TAPT: aspirin, clopidogrel and cilostazol) compared with dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT: aspirin and clopidogrel) in patients undergoing coronary stent implantation. We searched the literature to identify all randomized clinical trials ... Read more >>

Human fetal globin gene expression is regulated by LYAR.

Junyi Ju, Ying Wang, Ronghua Liu, Yichong Zhang, Zhen Xu, Yadong Wang, Yupeng Wu, Ming Liu, Loretta Cerruti, Fengwei Zou, Chi Ma, Ming Fang, Renxiang Tan, Stephen M Jane, Quan Zhao,

Human globin gene expression during development is modulated by transcription factors in a stage-dependent manner. However, the mechanisms controlling the process are still largely unknown. In this study, we found that a nuclear protein, LYAR (human homologue of mouse Ly-1 antibody reactive clone) directly interacted with the methyltransferase PRMT5 which ... Read more >>
