A thymic hyperplasia-related reversible complete atrioventricular block: When compression is more important than compressor.

Gianluca Massaro, Giuseppe Stifano, Vincenzo Ambrogi, Lucia Anemona, Enrica Giuliana Mariano, Gaetano Chiricolo, Eugenio Martuscelli, Giuseppe Massimo Sangiorgi,

A 19-year-old patient presented for syncope with third-degree AV block (TDAVB) at ECG. A chest-CT showed a thymic mass that could be responsible for TDAVB due to extrinsic vagal nerve compression. Thymectomy led to complete AV block resolution. An extrinsic vagal compression mechanism should be considered among causes of complete ... Read more >>

Efficacy and Effect of Inhaled Adenosine Treatment in Hospitalized COVID-19 Patients.

Massimo Caracciolo, Pierpaolo Correale, Carmelo Mangano, Giuseppe Foti, Carmela Falcone, Sebastiano Macheda, Maria Cuzzola, Marco Conte, Antonella Consuelo Falzea, Eleonora Iuliano, Antonella Morabito, Michele Caraglia, Nicola Polimeni, Anna Ferrarelli, Demetrio Labate, Marco Tescione, Laura Di Renzo, Gaetano Chiricolo, Lorenzo Romano, Antonino De Lorenzo,

Lack of specific antiviral treatment for COVID-19 has resulted in long hospitalizations and high mortality rate. By harnessing the regulatory effects of adenosine on inflammatory mediators, we have instituted a new therapeutic treatment with inhaled adenosine in COVID-19 patients, with the aim of reducing inflammation, the onset of cytokine storm, ...

Provisional stenting or not provisional stenting: seven critical points for bifurcations treatment with a glimpse on left main bifurcation stenting.

Riccardo Iorio, Alberto Cereda, Augustin Vecchia, Enrico Romagnoli, Paolo Cioffi, Gaetano Chiricolo, Giuseppe Sangiorgi,

Stenting of coronary bifurcation lesions represents a challenge for the interventional cardiologist. A bifurcation lesion could be treated with several techniques. Therefore, it is of paramount importance to decide the strategical approach at the beginning of the procedure evaluating the patient's bifurcation anatomy, the angle between main and side branch, ...

Adiponectin isoforms are not associated with the severity of coronary atherosclerosis but with undiagnosed diabetes in patients affected by stable CAD.

Stefano Rizza, Fabrizio Clementi, Ottavia Porzio, Marina Cardellini, Alessia Savo, Matteo Serino, Gaetano Chiricolo, Francesco Romeo, Renato Lauro, Massimo Federici,

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Total adiponectin is emerging as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, but the role of adiponectin isoforms in coronary artery disease (CAD) is still unknown. We investigated the role of adiponectin isoforms with respect to the severity of coronary disease and to the presence of undiagnosed ... Read more >>

Functional assessment of the collateral-dependent circulation in chronic total coronary occlusion using transthoracic Doppler ultrasound and venous adenosine infusion.

Francesco Pizzuto, Paolo Voci, Paolo Emilio Puddu, Gaetano Chiricolo, Mauro Borzi, Francesco Romeo,

The measurement of collateral flow reserve (CFR; the hyperemic/baseline collateral flow velocity ratio) in patients with chronic total coronary occlusion requires invasive and expensive techniques. Noninvasive transthoracic coronary Doppler echocardiography may be an alternative option. Fifty-one patients with chronic total coronary occlusion were evaluated by transthoracic coronary Doppler echocardiography and ... Read more >>

Coronary spasm: a case of transient ST elevation and syncopal ventricular tachycardia without angina.

Claudia Postorino, Mark M Gallagher, Luca Santini, Giulia Magliano, Gaetano Chiricolo, Missiroli Bindo, Alfredo Postorino, Francesco Romeo,

We report the case of a 60-year-old male with recurrent pre-syncope, referred with a provisional diagnosis of carotid sinus syndrome on the basis of a 4 s asystolic pause following carotid sinus massage. On repeat Holter monitoring there was ST-segment elevation followed by episodes of polymorphic ventricular tachycardia during a ... Read more >>

Revascularization strategy in patients with multivessel disease and a major vessel chronically occluded; data from the CABRI trial.

Eugenio Martuscelli, Fabrizio Clementi, Mark M Gallagher, Alessia D'Eliseo, Gaetano Chiricolo, Antonio Nigri, Benedetto Marino, Francesco Romeo, ,

<h4>Objective</h4>In patients with multivessel coronary artery disease and total occlusion of major epicardial vessel, completeness of revascularization has not been investigated in specific trials comparing the surgical and the percutaneous revascularization strategy. Analyzing the database of the CABRI study, which randomized a substantial number of these patients, we investigated the ... Read more >>

<h4>Objective</h4>Major depressive disorder (MDD) is associated with low-grade inflammation, and it is considered a risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD). CD40 ligand (CD40L) plays an important role in inflammation, platelet activation, and clotting system activation. We investigated soluble CD40L (sCD40L) expression in MDD and assessed whether it may represent ... Read more >>
