A brief but comprehensive editorial on nuances of the links between atrial fibrillation and heart failure, apropos a trial we have commented recently on, by the Johns Hopkins team that develops the calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II inhibitor molecules
March 4, 2022
A paper that addresses a gap in knowledge and will guide future research: of particular interest, the penultimate paragraph on The Role of Interventions.

An interesting brief editorial on an experiment revisiting renal denervation as a panacea to cardiovascular disease

Interesting study of hypertrophied human cardiomyocytes
The Right Ventricle During Veno-Venous Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation in Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome: Can We Protect the Injured Ventricle?
January 21, 2022
An editorial with some interest for the cardiothoracic surgeon, in particular the awareness of changes in the right vantricle during ECMO support , mostly drawn from the recent Covid experiences, and with a useful paragraph on veno-pulmonary arterial ECMO, discussing the uncoupling of RV and PA.

Impressive decrease of death (by approximaltely 40% !) in 2 years from a small RCT in elective structural heart surgery for degeneration. The assumption is a benefit by improvement in right ventricular dynamics

A large randomised double-blinded trial reporting a considerable benefit ( 0.79 HR with very small p and supporting confidence intervals) of the Boehringer SGLPT-2 inhibitor regardless of presence of formal diagnosis of diabetes.
Echocardiography in Weaning Right Ventricular Mechanical Circulatory Support: are we measuring the right stuff?
October 10, 2021
Scholarly endeavour to digest, in a relatively short and dense manuscript, the State-of-the-Art in assessing the function of the Forgotten Chamber. The notion of surgjcal pericardiotomy as a confounder of decision making is most interesting
October 1, 2021
A scholarly narrative on the utility of quantifying the performance of the right ventricle: the RV has been hitherto empirically assessed in many clinical setups.
