The translational value for cardiac transplantation of this prospective multi-centre clinical study of vasodilation in amyloidosis remains to be evaluated.

The authors present herein a type A dissection repair using the Florida sleeve technique, which allows for preservation of the native aortic valve and sinuses.

Using period hypercapnea as a surrogate "contrast" agent, myocardial oxygenation was assessed using cardiac MR and accurately mapped areas of relative ischemia.

An interesting metanalysis, especially: The ad hoc results of off-pump surgery. The mean number of silent brain infarcts per patient was significantly higher in the transcatheter aortic valve implantation group (4.58 ± 2.09) compared with the aortic valve replacement group (2.16 ± 1.62, P=0.03).

The authors prospectively analyzed right ventricular (RV) function in 109 patients undergoing a broad range of cardiac surgeries. RV function was assessed at several time points by evaluating TAPSE and 2D longitudinal RV strain to evaluate long axis RV function, and fractional area exchange to evaluate global RV function.

A robust meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials on stem cell therapies for refractory angina, offering some encouragement.

Very useful open access review, especially the simple figure on page 959.
February 27, 2019
A very useful synopsis of treatment strategies for a vexing lethal condition.

A good attempt to shed some light into the somewhat challenging concept of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, on the occasion of a small randomized controlled trial on albuterol.
December 26, 2018
A randomized controlled trial coauthored by the Editor-in-Chief of the host periodical on the risk management of multivessel diabetic coronopathy.
