To externally validate the CRISP score, and determine if refinements might improve clinical utility.
Right atrial pressure (RAP), a representative parameter of right heart failure, is very important for prognostic evaluation and risk assessment in pulmonary hypertension. However, its measurement requires invasive cardiac catheterization. In this study, we determined the most accurate echocardiographic surrogate of catheterization-based RAP. In 23 patients with pulmonary hypertension, a total of 66 cardiac catheterization procedures were performed along with 2-dimensional echocardiography. We evaluated tric...
Adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD) are vulnerable to contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) after cardiac catheterization. The aim of this study was to identify risk factors for clinically significant CI-AKI and evaluate the predictive value of contrast volume to estimated glomerular filtration rate ratio (V/eGFR) for the risk of CI-AKI following catheterization in the ACHD population.
This meta-analysis of randomized trials demonstrated no statistically significant difference in the incidence of MACE between patients who underwent trans-ulnar or the trans-radial cardiac catheterization. No differences in arterial access time, fluoroscopy time, and contrast load between the two groups.
To evaluate differences in radiation dose and image quality across institutions, fluoroscope vendors and generations of fluoroscopes for pediatric cardiac catheterization.
There is great variability in radiation safety practices in cardiac catheterization laboratories around the world.
Patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) are at increased risk for cardiovascular events and higher susceptibility for cardiac arrhythmias may be involved. The objectives of this double blinded, randomized controlled FLAX-PAD trial were to determine whether daily consumption of a diet supplemented with 30g of milled flaxseed (or placebo) over one year by PAD patients has effects on the prevalence of cardiac arrhythmias and exercise capacity. Cardiac arrhythmias were assessed on a cardiac stress test an...
The efficacy of various pre-medication strategies for comfort management during microfocused ultrasound with visualization (MFU-V) treatment has not been studied. The present objective was to compare 2 topical analgesics (lidocaine 4% and benzocaine 20%) formulated with a novel transdermal delivery system with compounded lidocaine 23%/tetracaine 7% (23/7) to mitigate discomfort during MFU-V treatment.
Mastectomy flap necrosis (MFN) remains a challenging complication in immediate tissue expander breast reconstruction (ITEBR). Nitroglycerin ointment has been shown to reduce the incidence of MFN in a randomized controlled study, using 45g per breast and treating one side only in bilateral cases. This study was conducted to determine the efficacy of 15g of nitroglycerin ointment per breast - therefore permitting application to both breasts in cases of bilateral mastectomy.
The aim of this article is to focus on the utilization of forearm approach for cardiac catheterization in challenging groups of patients. Radial and ulnar approaches have gained significant popularity among the majority of interventional cardiologists. Multiple studies have demonstrated the feasibility, safety and efficacy of forearm route for cardiac catheterization and have highlighted the significant reduction in bleeding complications by avoiding the puncture of the groin. In this review we present the ...
Diagnostic and interventional cardiac catheterization is routinely used in the diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart disease. There are well-established concerns regarding the risk of radiation exposure to patients and staff, particularly in children given the cumulative effects of repeat exposure. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) offers the advantage of being able to provide better soft tissue visualization, tissue characterization, and quantification of ventricular volumes and vascular flow. Initial...
Nitroglycerin (NTG) given prior to an ischemic insult exerts cardioprotective effects. However, whether administration of an acute low dose of NTG in a clinically relevant manner following an ischemic episode limits infarct size, has not yet been explored.
Tumescent lidocaine anesthesia (TLA) is an opportunity to perform mastectomy for breast cancer without general anesthesia in elderly women. Few reports are available on the pharmacokinetics of lidocaine in a context of TLA during a unilateral mastectomy. The aim of this study was to describe lidocaine pharmacokinetics in elderly women undergoing breast cancer surgery after TLA and to explore the risk of the toxicity of this technique.
Lidocaine infused at 1-4 mg/min is an appropriate treatment modality for hemodynamically stable ventricular tachycardia (VT) with normal hepatic function. A case of acute lidocaine toxicity in the setting of left ventricular assist device (LVAD) is reported.
Chronic post-surgical pain (CPSP) occurs in 12% of surgical populations and is a high priority for perioperative research. Systemic lidocaine may modulate several of the pathophysiological processes linked to CPSP. This systematic review aims to identify and synthesize the evidence linking lidocaine infusions and CPSP.The authors conducted a systematic literature search of the major medical databases from inception until October 2017. Trials that randomized adults without baseline pain to perioperative lido...
This study examines the preparation of sustained-release lidocaine polyelectrolyte complex using reactive melt extrusion. Eudragit L100-55 was selected as the ionic polymer. The influence of drug forms (freebase vs. hydrochloride salt) on lidocaine-Eudragit L100-55 interactions, physical stability, and dissolution properties of extrudates was investigated. It was confirmed by DSC, FT-IR and Raman spectroscopy that polyelectrolyte could only form via the acid-base reaction between Eudragit L100-55 and lidoca...
Levosimendan is an inotropic agent that has been shown in small studies to treat low cardiac output syndrome in cardiac surgery. However, large randomised controlled trials (RCTs) have been recently published and presented neutral results. We sought to determine the effect of levosimendan on mortality in adults with low ejection fraction undergoing cardiac surgery. We searched different databases: Medline, Embase, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, and clinical trial registries. We included RCT...
Spinal anesthesia has evolved into a safe and widely accepted method of anesthesia. Synergy between opioids and local anesthetics further increases the quality of analgesia and decreases the dose requirement of both local anesthetics and opioids. However, over the last decades compelling evidence suggested that lidocaine could be more neurotoxic than other commonly used local anesthetics. Whether opioids can modify the local anesthetics-induced neurotoxicity is largely unexplored. Here, we investigated the ...
OBJECTIVE To determine plasma concentrations of lidocaine after laryngeal administration or laryngeal and intratesticular administration in cats. ANIMALS 14 healthy adult sexually intact male cats (7 cats/treatment). PROCEDURES Cats were randomly allocated to receive 0.1 mL of 2% or 10% lidocaine hydrochloride solution (treatments L2 and L10, respectively) sprayed on the larynx for laryngeal desensitization, followed by endotracheal intubation and isoflurane anesthesia. After a 7-day washout period, cats we...
Lidocaine is used to alleviate procedural pain, but paradoxically increases pain during injection. Pain perception can be modulated by non-noxious stimuli such as temperature or touch according to the gate control theory of pain. We postulated that lidocaine dripped onto the skin prior to injection would cool or touch the skin surface to reduce pain perception from the procedure.
The complex nature of congenital heart disease (CHD) has hindered the establishment of management standards for peri-catheterization anticoagulation. We sought to describe anticoagulation practice variability among providers performing cardiac catheterization in children and adults with CHD. A web-based survey ( http://www.surveymonkey.com ) was distributed to pediatric and congenital interventional cardiologists. Respondents were queried on their training, practice setting, years in practice, and case volu...
