Cardiology Cases and Systematic Reviews
Cardiology Cases and Systematic Reviews is an official peer-reviewed open access journal of Wright Academia, a library of medical publications.
Journal publishes peer-reviewed papers of clinical cases and reviews. New developments, clinical, invasive, and non-invasive diagnostic methods, pharmacologic, nutritional, and surgical therapies. We publish systemic reviews on novel technologies, both in the area of diagnosis and treatment.
The journal features original basic & clinical research articles, case reports, review articles, editorials, short communications, study protocols, clinical practice papers, inaugural lectures, letters to the editor, book reviews, conference abstracts, review literature, trial papers, and registered reports.

Chest pain, associated with diverse aetiologies and management strategies, is a common diagnostic challenge in the emergency department (ED). This study aimed to compare dispatch based on current disposition practices after ED diagnosis with expected disposition as determined by patient history, electrocardiogram, age, risk factors, and tropon in level (HEART) scores. ... read more
Acute or chronic heart failure is one of the most important entites among cardiac diseases. The treatment of heart failure become to be more and more disease - specific as new treatment options develop over time. Heart failure can occur due to ischemic cardiomyopathy, non-ischemic cardiomyopathy like specific forms of cardiomyopathies like dilated, hypertrophic, restrictive and arrhythmogenic one and special cardiomyopathies like acquired takotsubo cardiomyopathy. ... read more
Ventricular assist devices are increasingly used in the hemodynamic management of the postoperative period of cardiac surgery, either as bridging therapy to transplantation or until recovery from ventricular dysfunction. However, the use of these right-only assistive devices is rare. Local thrombosis and systemic embolism continue to be important postoperative complications. Its incidence increases when the flow through the device is low, which occurs during weaning or native ventricular recovery, and when it is located in the right heart chambers, due to its low pressure system with respect to the left heart, so it is more frequent thrombosis of the tricuspid prosthesis, and especially in mechanical prostheses ... read more
In patients presenting at the emergency room with ambivalent vascular symptoms of unclear origin it may be difficult to get a fast and precise diagnosis. However, this may be crucial to reach successful therapy in the setting of a life threatening scenario. Multidisciplinary cooperation between radiologists, neurovascular and cardiovascular specialists may be the clue for a non-delayed good clinical outcome in these patients. ... read more
Thrombocytopenia (TP) after Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) is not uncommon and can be associated with increased morbidity and mortality. TP is a recognized complication of treatment with Glycoprotein GPIIb/IIIa inhibitors (GPIs) inhibitors in Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS). However, majority of GPI-induced TPcases can be managed conservatively with only a few requiring more active intervention. ... read more
Foetal echocardiography is the ultrasonic evaluation of the human foetal cardiovascular system. Improved operator skill amongst physicians performing general antepartum obstetrical ultrasound, in combination with increased sensitivity of present day ultrasound systems, has resulted in improved detection of foetal cardiovascular abnormalities and increased requirements for more detailed evaluation. ... read more
Endomyocardial biopsy (EMB) is an established invasive procedure in which samples of myocardial tissue are obtained for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Generally, it is used for cardiac allograft rejection surveillance and evaluation of restrictive and dilated cardiomyopathies. ... read more
High blood pressure induces pathological changes in arterial conduction and contributes to the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease and increased cardiovascular risk. The progression of these changes involves both functional and structural components. Still, an increase in arterial stiffness of those arteries is associated with other cardiovascular risk factors, including age, sex, smoking, hypercholesterolemia, diabetes mellitus and atherosclerosis itself. ... read more
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is approved for patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis deemed high risk for open replacement. Subclavian approach is the most common alternative to femoral arterial vessel access in patients with iliofemoral peripheral arterial occlusive disease. ... read more
Terlipressin is a vasoconstrictor with effect on vascular smooth muscles in the portal and splanchnic circulation, thereby decreasing blood pressure in esophagus varices. Therefore, terlipressin is recommended as first-line of pharmacological therapy in patients with bleeding esophagus varices. ... read more
