Purpose of review Novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has been associated with an increased risk of arterial and venous thromboembolic (VTE) diseases. However, there is a limited amount of data regarding the prevention and management of VTE in severe hospitalized COVID-19 patients. Recent findings In this article, we review currently available clinical data, and mechanisms for COVID-associated coagulopathy, and propose algorithms for screening, prevention (including extended-duration proph...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Elderly patients presenting with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) represent a challenging patient population. A high index of suspicion is needed for their diagnosis, as they are less likely to present with typical anginal symptoms compared to their younger counterparts. RECENT FINDINGS Disrupted coronary plaques with superimposed thrombosis are the predominant pathophysiology of ACS; however, an increased proportion of calcified nodules is encountered in elderly patients. Emergen...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW The goal of the paper is to highlight the importance of procedural planning and patient selection when using the MitraClip device in treating severe mitral regurgitation (MR). RECENT FINDINGS Following the recent results of the COAPT trial and FDA approval for functional MR patients, the indications for mitral clip are continuing to expand. Because of this, mitral stenosis from mitral clip can become a problem if the appropriate patients are not selected. Proper valve imaging, ...
PURPOSE OF REVIEW This review was undertaken to summarise recent data relating to T1 and T2 relaxation times in the assessment of myocarditis using cardiac MRI, and the effect new studies have had on the established diagnostic criteria, leading to recently proposed revised criteria for the cardiac MRI assessment of myocarditis. RECENT FINDINGS In 2018, updates to the 2009 Lake Louise Criteria (LLC) were proposed, based on studies showing improved accuracy of T1 mapping techniques over T1 signal ...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW The purposes of this discussion are to describe what is known about burnout among women physicians and identify contributing factors, categories of impact, and methods for mitigating the phenomenon. The authors conclude with current gaps in research. RECENT FINDINGS Although there are a lack of investigations analyzing and reporting physician burnout data by gender, there is evidence to suggest that women physicians experience stress and burnout differently than their men count...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW To review the clinical evidence of the effect of aspirin as primary prevention for patients with diabetes mellitus and in healthy elderly. RECENT FINDINGS Two trials were performed to study these two patient populations: ASCEND showed that the use of low-dose aspirin in persons with diabetes, who did not have prior cardiovascular disease, led to a lower risk of cardiovascular events than placebo (8.5% vs 9.6%, rate ratio 0.88, 95% CI 0.79-0.97; p = 0.01). However, it showed a s...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW As many as 10 million patients present annually to the emergency department in the USA with symptoms concerning for acute myocardial infarction. The use of risk scores for patients with chest pain or equivalent without ST-segment elevation on the electrocardiogram. The adaptation in the USA of high sensitivity troponin assays requires rethinking of how to best optimize troponin testing within a risk score. RECENT FINDINGS Patients are risk stratified using a combination of vali...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW This paper investigates present uses and future potential of artificial intelligence (AI) applied to intracoronary imaging technologies. RECENT FINDINGS Advances in data analytics and digitized medical imaging have enabled clinical application of AI to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs through better diagnosis and enhanced workflow. Applications of AI to IVUS and IVOCT have produced improvements in image segmentation, plaque analysis, and stent evaluation. Machine learn...
PURPOSE OF REVIEW The most pertinent clinical question in post-coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) patients is the assessment of the physiological significance of an anatomically identified stenosis. The clinical application of radionuclide MPI using single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) versus positron emission tomography (PET) in the evaluation and management of patients with an inconclusive CCTA is reviewed using a case-based approach. RECENT FINDINGS Recent evidence ...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Emerging single-cell RNA sequencing technologies hold great promises to boost our understanding of the heterogeneity and molecular regulation of diverse cell phenotypes during organ development. In this review, we aimed at summarizing recent advances in employing single-cell transcriptomic analysis to depict the landscape of embryonic heart development, in particular, focusing on cardiac progenitor (CP) differentiation. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent studies unbiasedly cataloged and ...
