AIMS: To determine myocardial stiffness by means of measuring the velocity of naturally occurring myocardial shear waves (SWs) at mitral valve closure (MVC) and investigate their changes with myocardial remodelling in patients with hypertensive heart disease. METHODS AND RESULTS: Thirty-three treated arterial hypertension (HT) patients with hypertrophic left ventricular (LV) remodelling (59 ± 14 years, 55% male) and 26 aged matched healthy controls (55±15 years, 77% male) were included. HT patie...

BACKGROUND: Guidance for periprocedural anticoagulant management is mainly based on limited data from Phase III or observational studies and expert opinion. HYPOTHESIS: EMIT-AF/VTE was designed to document the risks of bleeding and thromboembolic events in more than 1000 patients on edoxaban undergoing diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in clinical practice. METHODS: Routine care in a multinational multicenter, prospective observational study. Participants were adult patients with atrial fibr...

Tigecycline is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that is indicated in the treatment of complicated intra-abdominal infections and complicated skin and skin and soft-tissue infections. We report the case of a 53-year old kidney transplant patient with a severe Mycobacterium abscess who developed life-threatening coagulopathy after initiation of tigecycline therapy. Further analysis revealed a severe hypofibrinogenemia. A few case reports previously described an association between tigecycline and prolo...

BACKGROUND: Previous clinical evidence correlates levels of von Willebrand factor (VWF) and its cleaving protease ADAMTS13 with outcome in septic patients. No previous studies addressed if VWF and ADAMTS13 affected the outcome of Staphylococcus aureus sepsis. OBJECTIVES: We studied the role of VWF and ADAMTS13 in S. aureus sepsis both in patients and in mice. METHODS: VWF levels and ADAMTS13 activity levels were measured in plasma samples from 89 S. aureus bacteremia patients by chemiluminescent...

Infective endocarditis is a life-threatening and enigmatic disease with a mortality of 30% and a pathophysiology that is poorly understood. However, at its core, an endocarditis lesion is mainly a fibrin and platelet blood clot infested with bacteria, clinging at the cardiac valves. Infective endocarditis therefore serves as a paradigm of immunothrombosis gone wrong. Immunothrombosis refers to the entanglement of the coagulation system with innate immunity and the role of coagulation in the isol...
