Background:Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common arrhythmia in patients with acute heart failure (AHF). Heart rate (HR) also changes significantly over time. However, the association between changes in HR in AF patients and prognosis is uncertain.Methods and Results:We investigated the association between HR reduction in AF achieved within 48 h of admission and 60-day mortality in patients with AHF from the REALITY-AHF study. The percentage HR (%HR) reduction was calculated as (baseline HR–HR at 48 h) / baseline HR × 100. The primary endpoint was 60-day all-cause mortality. In 468 patients with confirmed AF at both admission and 48 h after admission, the median HR at these time points was 105±31 and 84±18 beats/min, respectively. The median %HR reduction was 15.4% (interquartile range 2.2–31.4%). During the 60 days of admission, 39 deaths (8.3%) were recorded, and the %HR reduction within 48 h was significantly associated with 60-day mortality in the unadjusted model (hazard ratio [HR] 0.85; 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.77–0.95; P=0.005) and after adjusting for other covariates (HR 0.81; 95% CI 0.68–0.96; P=0.016).Furthermore, the %HR reduction was associated with a significant reduction in 60-day mortality in patients with higher baseline HR.Conclusions:%HR reduction is associated with a better short-term prognosis in patients with AHF presenting with AF, particularly in those with a rapid ventricular response.

We report a case of successful percutaneous retrieval of an unexpectedly disrupted balloon catheter using GuideLiner and a low-profile balloon. The procedure and the mechanism of this novel technique were described in detail with ex-vivo testing. This case demonstrated the utility of the combination of GuideLiner and low-profile balloon as a bail-out for intravascular foreign body.

Background: The MitraClip G4 system is a new iteration of the transcatheter edge-to-edge repair system. We assessed the impact of the G4 system on routine practice and outcomes in secondary mitral regurgitation (2°MR).Methods and Results: Consecutive patients with 2°MR treated with either the MitraClip G2 (n=89) or G4 (n=63) system between 2018 and 2021 were included. Baseline characteristics, procedures, and outcomes were compared. Inverse probability of treatment weighting and Cox regression were used to adjust for baseline differences. Baseline characteristics were similar, except for a lower surgical risk in the G4 group (Society of Thoracic Surgeons Predicted Risk of Mortality ≥8: 38.1% vs. 56.2%; P=0.03). In the G4 group, more patients had short (≤2 mm) coaptation length (83.7% vs. 54.0%; P<0.001) and fewer clips were used (17.5% vs. 36.0%; P=0.02). Acceptable MR reduction was observed in nearly all patients, with no difference between the G4 and G2 groups (100% vs. 97.8%, respectively; P=0.51). The G4 group had fewer patients with high transmitral gradients (>5mmHg; 3.3% vs. 13.6%; P=0.03). At 1 year, there was no significant difference between groups in the composite endpoint (death or heart failure rehospitalization) after baseline adjustment (10.5% vs. 20.2%; hazard ratio 0.39; 95% confidence interval 0.11–1.32; P=0.13).Conclusions: The G4 system achieved comparable device outcomes to the early-generation G2, despite treating more challenging 2°MR with fewer clips.

Erythrocytes play an essential role in the delivery of oxygen from the lung to every organ; a decrease in erythrocytes (anemia) causes hypoxic stress and tissue damage. To maintain oxygen homeostasis in adult mammals, when the kidney senses hypoxia, it secretes an erythroid growth factor, erythropoietin (Epo), which stimulates erythropoiesis in the bone marrow. Recently, studies using genetically modified mice have shown that the in vivo expression profile of the Epo gene changes dramatically during development. The first Epo-producing cells emerge in the neural crest and neuroepithelium of mid-stage embryos and support primitive erythropoiesis in the yolk sac. Subsequently, Epo from the hepatocytes stimulates erythropoiesis in the fetal liver of later stage embryos in a paracrine manner. In fact, erythroid lineage cells comprise the largest cell population in the fetal liver, and hepatocytes are distributed among the erythroid cell clusters. Adult erythropoiesis in the bone marrow requires Epo that is secreted by renal Epo-producing cells (REP cells). REP cells are widely distributed in the renal cortex and outer medulla. Hypoxia-inducible Epo production both in hepatocytes and REP cells is controlled at the gene transcription level that is mainly mediated by the hypoxia-inducible transcription factor (HIF) pathway. These mouse studies further provide insights into the molecular mechanisms of the cell-type specific, hypoxia-inducible expression of the Epo gene, which involves multiple sets of cis- and trans-regulatory elements.

One of the main principles presented in the new government curriculum guideline coming into effect in 2020 is “self-directed, interactive, and deep learning,” which also is illustrated in the report submitted by the Central Education Council. The author, by receiving support from elementary school teachers, conceptualized an instructional strategy which enables “self-directed, interactive, and deep learning” in elementary mathematics. The author proposed total nine strategic points for pupils’ achieving “self-directed, interactive, and deep learning.” In addition, the author exemplified a six grade class math lesson plan dealing with speed.

Decreased Transthyretin (TTR) can be observed in heart failure patients with malnutrition evaluated by the Mini Nutritional Assessment (MNA). This study investigated whether a combination of different nutritional assessment methods would be useful for assessing prognosis in patients with acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF).This prospective study included 52 patients with ADHF (mean age, 71.1 ± 14.7 years; men 55.8%) who were admitted to our hospital between June 2012 and August 2013. On admission, nutritional status was evaluated according to levels of TTR and the MNA. Of 52 patients, 28 (53.8%) had TTR < 15 mg/dL, 39 (75.0%) had malnutrition or were at risk of malnutrition (MNA score ≤ 23.5), and 21 (40.4%) were categorized into group L (MNA score ≤ 23.5 and TTR < 15 mg/dL). Readmission due to worsening heart failure occurred in 12 patients (23.1%), and there were 4 (7.7%) allcause deaths. The 1-year event-free survival rates in group L and the remaining patients (group O) were 27.7% and 85.6%, respectively (P = 0.001). Using Cox multivariate analysis, group L also had a poorer prognosis (hazard ratio 4.35, 95% confidence interval 1.26–17.74, P = 0.020).MNA revealed that 75% of patients with ADHF had malnutrition or were at risk of malnutrition. The combination of low MNA and low TTR on admission can predict the prognosis of patients with ADHF.
