A 60-year-old Japanese woman was hospitalized for cardiogenic shock 24 days after receiving the second dose of the coronavirus disease 2019 BNT162b2 vaccine. Impella CP left ventricular assist device implantation and venoarterial peripheral extracorporeal membranous oxygenation were immediately initiated along with inotropic support and steroid pulse therapy, as an endomyocardial biopsy specimen showed myocarditis. Three weeks later, her cardiac function had recovered, and she was discharged. An immune response associated with the presence of spike protein in cardiac myocytes may be related to myocarditis in the present case because of positive immunostaining for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 spike protein and C4d in the myocardium.

A 19-year-old Japanese man was hospitalized for cardiogenic shock 28 days after receiving a second dose of the COVID-19 mRNA-1273 vaccine. He had had a high fever for three days with vomiting and abdominal pain before arriving at our hospital. The patient visited a local hospital and was diagnosed with heart failure and acute appendicitis. An endomyocardial biopsy specimen showed myocarditis. Thereafter, Impella CP left ventricular assist device implantation and venoarterial peripheral extracorporeal membranous oxygenation were initiated immediately along with inotropic support and steroid pulse therapy. Given these findings, he was finally diagnosed with multiple inflammatory syndrome and fulminant myocarditis.

Background: Portopulmonary hypertension (PoPH) is one of the major underlying causes of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). However, PoPH, especially treatment strategies, has been poorly studied. Therefore, this study evaluated current treatments for PoPH, their efficacy, and clinical outcomes of patients with PoPH.Methods and Results: Clinical data were collected for patients with PoPH who were enrolled in the Japan Pulmonary Hypertension Registry between 2008 and 2021. Hemodynamic changes, functional class, and clinical outcomes were compared between patients with PoPH treated with monotherapy and those treated with combination therapies. Clinical data were analyzed for 62 patients with PoPH, including 25 treatment-naïve patients, from 21 centers in Japan. In more than half the patients, PAH-specific therapy improved the New York Heart Association functional class by at least one class. The 3- and 5-year survival rates of these patients were 88.5% (95% confidence interval [CI] 76.0–94.7) and 80.2% (95% CI 64.8–89.3), respectively. Forty-one (66.1%) patients received combination therapy. Compared with patients who had received monotherapy, the mean pulmonary arterial pressure, pulmonary vascular resistance, and cardiac index were significantly improved in patients who had undergone combination therapies.Conclusions: Combination therapy was commonly used in patients with PoPH with a favorable prognosis. Combination therapies resulted in significant hemodynamic improvement without an increased risk of side effects.

Background:Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) reportedly causes venous thromboembolism (VTE), but the status of this complication in Japan was unclear.Methods and Results:The VTE and COVID-19 in Japan Study is a retrospective, multicenter cohort study enrolling hospitalized patients with COVID-19 who were evaluated with contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) examination at 22 centers in Japan between March 2020 and October 2020. Among 1,236 patients with COVID-19, 45 (3.6%) were evaluated with contrast-enhanced CT examination. VTE events occurred in 10 patients (22.2%), and the incidence of VTE in mild, moderate, and severe COVID-19 was 0%, 11.8%, and 40.0%, respectively. COVID-19 patients with VTE showed a higher body weight (81.6 vs. 64.0 kg, P=0.005) and body mass index (26.9 vs. 23.2 kg/m2, P=0.04), and a higher proportion had a severe status for COVID-19 compared with those without. There was no significant difference in the proportion of patients alive at discharge between patients with and without VTE (80.0% vs. 88.6%, P=0.48). Among 8 pulmonary embolism (PE) patients, all were low-risk PE.Conclusions:Among a relatively small number of patients undergoing contrast-enhanced CT examination in Japanese real-world clinical practice, there were no VTE patients among those with mild COVID-19, but the incidence of VTE seemed to be relatively high among severe COVID-19 patients, although all PE events were low-risk without significant effect on mortality risk.

The consumption of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) reduces the incidence of cardiovascular events and sudden cardiac death. Coronary microvascular dysfunction (CMD) is a predictor of cardiac mortality, but little information is known on the relationship between CMD and omega-3 PUFAs. This study aimed to identify the relationship between the serum levels of omega-3 PUFAs and the CMD evaluated by the hyperemic microvascular resistance index (hMVRI) to assess coronary microvascular function in patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD).Intracoronary physiological variables (fractional flow reserve (FFR), hMVRI, mean distal coronary pressure (Pd), and average peak velocity (APV)) were measured in 108 patients. These parameters were evaluated in 150 coronary arteries with stenosis of intermediate severity and without significant ischemia (FFR > 0.80). The PUFA levels and atherosclerotic risk factors were also measured. Univariate analysis shows that hMVRI was negatively correlated with eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)/arachidonic acid (AA) ratio (β = −0.31, P = 0.001) and EPA (β = −0.25, P = 0.009) and was positively correlated with dihomo-γ-linolenic acid (β = 0.26, P = 0.006). Multivariate regression analysis shows that the EPA/AA ratio was the only independent determinant of hMVRI (β = −0.234, SE = 0.231, P = 0.024). Furthermore, hMVRI decreased significantly from the lowest to highest tertiles of the EPA/AA ratio (P = 0.007). The EPA/AA ratio was positively correlated with APV at hyperemia (β = 0.26, P = 0.008) but not with Pd at hyperemia.A lower serum EPA/AA ratio may cause CMD in patients with stable CAD.

Background: Reports of mortality-associated risk factors in patients with coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are limited.Methods: We evaluated the clinical features that were associated with mortality among patients who died during hospitalization (N=158) and those who were alive at discharge (N=2,736) from the large-scale, multicenter, retrospective, observational cohort CLOT-COVID study enrolled consecutively hospitalized COVID-19 patients from 16 centers in Japan from April to September 2021. Data from 2,894 hospitalized COVID-19 participants of the CLOT-COVID study were analyzed in this study.Results: Patients who died were older (71.1 years versus 51.6 years, P<0.001), had higher median D-dimer values on admission (1.7 μg/mL versus 0.8 μg/mL, P<0.001), and had more comorbidities. On admission, the patients who died had more severe COVID-19 than did those who survived (mild: 16% versus 63%, moderate: 47% versus 31%, and severe: 37% versus 6.2%, P<0.001). In patients who died, the incidence of thrombosis and major bleeding during hospitalization was significantly higher than that in those who survived (thrombosis: 8.2% vs. 1.5%, P<0.001; major bleeding: 12.7% vs. 1.4%, P<0.001). Multivariable logistic regression analysis revealed that age >70 years, high D-dimer values on admission, heart disease, active cancer, higher COVID-19 severity on admission, and development of major bleeding during hospitalization were independently associated with a higher mortality risk. Conclusions: This large-scale observational study in Japan identified several independent risk factors for mortality in hospitalized patients with COVID-19 that could facilitate appropriate risk stratification of patients with COVID-19.

Objectives: This study aims to clarify whether work engagement mediates the relationship between job resources (i.e., supervisor support, coworker support, and job control) and work-to-family positive spillover (WFPS) for home-visiting nursing staff. Methods: This cross-sectional study surveyed 15 male and 152 female participating home-visit nursing staff across 108 home-visit nursing stations in Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan. In February 2019, each participant provided informed consent and sociodemographic information, and answered three scales, including the short-form version of the Utrecht Work Engagement Scale in Japanese, the Japanese version of the Survey Work-Home Interaction – Nijmegen (J-SWING), and the Job Content Questionnaire (JCQ-22). We evaluated supervisor support, coworker support, and job control as job resources using the JCQ-22's subscale. We then evaluated WFPS using the J-SWING's subscale. The hypothesized model was then tested using structural equation modeling. Results: Job resources were positively related to work engagement among the home-visit nursing staff; in turn, work engagement was positively related to WFPS. Job resources had no significant relationship with WFPS. These results suggest that work engagement mediates the relationship between job resources and WFPS. Conclusions: This study found that job resources were not directly related to WFPS for home-visit nursing staff. However, work engagement mediated the relationship between job resources and WFPS.

Background:Vonoprazan is a potassium-competitive acid blocker increasingly used in Japan to prevent upper gastrointestinal bleeding in patients undergoing dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 is involved in the primary metabolism of both vonoprazan and prasugrel. This raises concern about the possibility of a CYP3A4-mediated drug-drug interaction between vonoprazan and prasugrel that may lead to attenuation of prasugrel’s antiplatelet effect.Methods and Results:We evaluated 88 PCI patients who were taking either vonoprazan (n=45) or proton pump inhibitors (PPIs; n=43) in combination with DAPT (aspirin and prasugrel). Platelet reactivity on prasugrel was assessed using the VerifyNow P2Y12assay. The primary endpoint was comparison of P2Y12reaction units (PRU) between patients on vonoprazan and PPIs. PRU >208 and <85 were defined as high (HPR) and low (LPR) on-treatment platelet reactivity for prasugrel. PRU was comparable between patients receiving vonoprazan and PPIs (169±52 vs. 179±61, respectively; P=0.75). There were no significant differences between the vonoprazan and PPI groups in the prevalence of HPR (22% vs. 37%, respectively; P=0.16) and LPR (4 vs. 7%, respectively; P=0.48). The results were consistent regardless of the type of clinical presentation and DAPT duration.Conclusions:PRU under DAPT with aspirin plus prasugrel in patients receiving vonoprazan was not significantly different from that in patients receiving PPIs after PCI in routine clinical practice.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has been recognized as a worldwide pandemic. However, the clinical course of COVID-19 remains poorly characterized. Although some cases of pneumothorax have been reported, they all had pulmonary complications or were managed with mechanical ventilation. We herein report a case of pneumothorax that developed even though the patient had no pulmonary underlying diseases and had never been managed with mechanical ventilation. In the present case, a lung bulla was found on chest computed tomography during treatment for COVID-19. We concluded that COVID-19 affected the formation of the lung bulla and induced the complication of pneumothorax.

We present a fast algorithm for probabilistically extracting significant locations from raw GPS data based on data point density. Extracting significant locations from raw GPS data is the first essential step of algorithms designed for location-aware applications. Most current algorithms compare spatial/temporal variables with given fixed thresholds to extract significant locations. However, the appropriate threshold values are not clearly known in priori, and algorithms with fixed thresholds are inherently error-prone, especially under high noise levels. Moreover, they do not often scale in response to increase in system size since direct distance computation is required. We developed a fast algorithm for selective data point sampling around significant locations based on density information by constructing random histograms using locality-sensitive hashing. Theoretical analysis and evaluations show that significant locations are accurately detected with a loose parameter setting even under high noise levels.

Pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) is associated with various electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormalities, but the utility of evaluating the severity of PTE based on ECG abnormalities alone has not been investigated in Japanese patients previously. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between ECG abnormalities and the mean pulmonary artery pressure (MPAP) in patients with acute massive PTE (AMPTE). ECG examination of 21 patients, who were diagnosed with AMPTE by pulmonary arteriography, found that S1Q3T 3 was the most frequently observed abnormality (in 67% of the patients), followed by negative T (62%), clockwise rotation (57%), and ST elevation (48%). When these patients were divided into 2 groups based on the level of MPAP, 8 of the 11 ECG findings, which were associated with PTE in a previous report, were more frequently observed in Group H (MPAP ≥40 mmHg) than in Group L (MPAP <40 mmHg). MPAP correlated significantly with the total number of ECG abnormalities (r=0.82, p<0.001). In particular, at least 5 ECG abnormalities were noted in patients with MPAP ≥45 mmHg. These results suggested that the total number of ECG abnormalities in patients with AMPTE can be used to evaluate the severity of APTE, including PAP level. (Circ J 2003; 67: 229 - 232)
