The aim is to examine the expression of αvβ3 integrin using a novel selective radiotracer in patients with chronich ischemic heart disease and investigate if it is a suitable tool for predicting myocardial recovery and thus prognosis after intervention.
Children with disorders that impact neurodevelopment often have difficulties with executive functions and regulating emotions. Cognitive-based video game training has been shown to improve outcomes, however, this training has been expensive, has required professional supervision, and has been investigated only within a narrow group of children. The Mega Team study will test the effects of a highly engaging, take-home video game-based intervention designed to improve executive functioning in children with various brain-based developmental disorders.
The primary objective in this study is to investigate if vein grafts harvested and implanted with the non-touch technique are superior to conventional vein graft technique with respect to mid-term patency, in patients undergoing CABG surgery.
Carcinoid Heart Disease (CHD) is a rare form of heart disease, occurring in over 50% of the patients with carcinoid syndrome. Pathophysiology, prognostic factors of development of Carcinoid Heart Disease and progression of disease remain unclear. This observational multicenter cohort study is designed to study the occurrence of Carcinoid Heart Disease in patients with differentiated carcinoid tumors, to describe numerous factors influencing the occurrence, severity, progression and long-term survival of patients with Carcinoid Heart Disease. Basic informations and detailed diagnosis informations (oncological and cardiac parameters), are collected by professional doctors. Clinical outcomes (onset of Carcinoid Heart Disease, cardiac surgery, related death) will be followed up every year or every six/three months if clinically indicated.
Congenital hypothyroidism is one of the most preventable causes of neurocognitive impairment because early treatment is possible in neonates. The thyroid hormone is important for normal growth and development in infancy. After introducing national screening test using capillary thyroid stimulating hormone level, the incidence of untreated congenital hypothyroidism has significantly decreased. According to the Italian Registry of Congenital Hypothyroidism, congenital heart disease is the most frequent disease condition associated with congenital hypothyroidism. Congenital heart disease is also reported to be a risk factor for non-autoimmune hypothyroidism in children. In addition, intravenous iodine contrast media is frequently used for diagnostic imaging and therapeutic intervention in congenital heart disease patients. Excess iodine exposed by iodine contrast media may disturb thyroid function in adult and pediatric population. However, there is no generally accepted guideline for screening thyroid dysfunction in congenital heart disease infants. An increased prevalence of thyroid disease, particularly sub-clinical hypothyroidism, has been reported in Down Syndrome. In children with Down Syndrome, a possible concomitant sub-clinical hypothyroidism-related impairment of cardiac function or structure may worsen their clinical condition and can ultimately affect their life expectancy.
Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) might have high grade immune-related adverse events (irAEs) from rhumatologic, endocrinologic, cardiac or other system origin. This study investigates reports of drug induced irAEs with treatment including anti-PD1, Anti-PDL-1, and Anti-CTLA4 classes using the World Health Organization (WHO) database VigiBase and the french database Base Nationale de PharmacoVigilance (BNPV).
Children with congenital heart diseases (CHD) often show reduced health related physical fitness as well as limitations in gross and fine motor skills/development. Intervention programs in childhood are still rare and often focus just on the improvement of cardiac outcomes or exercise capacity. Web-based interventions, as a useful alternative to training manuals or supervised training, are cost effective and allow a customization of training times. Primary purpose of this study is to improve health related physical fitness in children with congenital heart disease.
Patients undergoing transcatheter valvular interventions will be prospectively included into the present registry. Baseline, procedural and follow-up data will be collected and analyzed to adress various issues in the field of percutaneous valvular interventions.
The objective of this registry is the characterization of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) with confirmed valvular heart disease (VHD) who are prescribed edoxaban in a real-life clinical setting.
The study aims at investigating the role of cyanotic congenital heart disease (cCHD) on brain aging. The investigators assume that due to congenital and acquired cardiovascular abnormalities, cCHD patients could show radiologic (and clinical) signs of precocious brain aging and eventual cognitive decline.
