Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a heart muscle disease characterized by ventricular dilation and systolic dysfunction in the absence of abnormal loading conditions or coronary artery disease. This cardiac disorder is a major health problem due to its high prevalence, morbidity, and mortality. DCM is a complex disease with a common phenotype but heterogeneous pathological mechanisms. Early etiological diagnosis and prognosis stratification is crucial for the clinical management of the patient. Ad...

ABSTRACT Etiology-based diagnosis of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is challenging. We evaluated whether peripheral microRNAs (miRNAs) could be used to characterize the DCM etiology. We investigated the miRNA plasma profiles of 254 subjects that comprised five groups: healthy subjects (n=70), idiopathic DCM patients (n=55), ischemic DCM patients (n=60) and two groups of patients with pathogenic variants responsible for familial DCM in the LMNA (LMNAMUT, n=37) and BAG3 (BAG3MUT, n=32) genes. Diagno...

Abstract Introduction and objectives The prognosis of asymptomatic severe aortic stenosis (AS) has not been widely documented in elderly patients who are frequently frail and have comorbidities. We sought to analyze the factors that influence early mortality in geriatric patients with asymptomatic severe AS. Methods This ambispective cohort study included 104 patients aged 70 years or older with asymptomatic severe AS. Epidemiological, geriatric, clinical and echocardiographic variables were col...

A new familial dilated cardiomyopathy (FDCM) was found related to mutations in BAG3 gene. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) represent new targets of FDCM, although no studies have assessed clinical association between Bcl2-associated athanogene 3 (BAG3)-related DCM and miRNAs. Here, we studied whether a clinical association between BAG3-related FDCM and circulating miRNAs may have diagnostic and prognostic value in a small cohort of familial related individuals carrying a BAG3 mutation (BAG3+) and/or diagnosed...

Abstract The Spanish Arteriosclerosis Society has accredited more than 70 lipid units across the country. The main criteria for patients to be referred to these units are presented. These are not only grouped by the type of dyslipidaemia or the lipid levels, but also on certain clinical characteristics suggesting primary hyperlipidaemia, a complex diagnosis, or difficult management due to inefficacy, or side effects.
