Alberto Cereda, Marco Toselli, Anna Palmisano, Davide Vignale, Arif Khokhar, Gianluca Campo, Matteo Bertini, Marco Loffi, Daniele Andreini, Gianluca Pontone, Gianluigi Patelli, Giuseppe Massimo Sangiorgi, Gabriele Tumminello, Mariarosa Elia, Attilio Iacovoni, Stefano Carugo, Claudio Rapezzi, Antonio Colombo, Francesco Giannini, Antonio Esposito,

Hypertension is associated with more severe disease and adverse outcomes in COVID-19 patients. Recent investigations have indicated that hypertension might be an independent predictor of outcomes in COVID-19 patients regardless of other cardiovascular and noncardiovascular comorbidities. We explored the significance of coronary calcifications in 694 hypertensive patients in the Score-COVID ... Read more >>

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 >>

Alberto Cereda, Alessandro Sticchi, Marco Toselli, Giuseppe Massimo Sangiorgi, Francesco Giannini, Antonio Colombo, Antonio Mangieri,

In the presence of an equivocal culprit lesion in the context of an acute coronary syndrome, the optical coherence tomography (OCT) scan defines the severity and composition of the plaque, elucidating (as in this pathognomonic case) the mechanism related to plaque rupture. Furthermore, OCT analysis allowed stent implantation with adequate ... Read more >>

Gennaro Sardella, Chiara Bucciarelli-Ducci, Massimo Mancone, Riccardo Colantonio, Giuseppe Massimo Sangiorgi, Francesco Fedele,

Drug-eluting stents (DES) present a slightly higher incidence of stent thrombosis compared to bare metal stents and some cases of DES thrombosis are described in the literature. Therefore, there is consensus in recommending treatment with clopidogrel for at least 6 months in addition to life-long aspirin administration. We describe a ... Read more >>
