Effective exclusion of myocardial ischemia with cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging

The alt text

A 42-year-old female with shortness of breath and atypical thoracical pain was referred to the MR unit for adenosine stress cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging to exclude significant coronary artery disease. The patient anatomy did not allow stress echocardiography and ionizing radiation was avoided due to her age. Read more about the case and the significance of CMR imaging in the clinical routine.

Cardiac Fusion Imaging: Benefits for Structural Heart Interventions

The alt text

Complex procedures require the best possible view: Overlaying TEE and CTA information on live fluoroscopy can provide helpful information during percutaneous procedures. Find out why Lenox Hill Heart and Lung Hospital on the US East Coast particularly values high speed fluoroscopic images with ultra-low dose radiation that can offer high resolution from different angles.

Valvular heart disease treatment in challenging patients

The alt text

Until recently, surgical therapies such as valve replacement or valve reconstruction have been recommended for most severe valvular diseases. For many patients, however, surgery was not a viable option due to the high risks of advanced age or the existence of concomitant diseases. Interventional valve therapies can offer an alternative as demonstrated here by a complex case from the Heart Center at University Hospital Bonn.

TAVI & TMViV guided by fusion imaging

Multimodality Case of Giant Coronary-Cameral Fistula 10 Years After Percutaneous Closure

The alt text

An 8-year-old girl with a giant congenital isolated coronary-cameral fistula was severely symptomatic for heart failure. The fistula originated from the left anterior descending coronary artery that was aneurysmal, and drained into the right ventricle (RV). She was successfully treated with a transcatheter closure using the Amplatzer duct occluder.

Touching young hearts

Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub dreams of fighting the number one killer in the developing world: cardiovascular disease. He founded a medical center in Egypt with the aim of providing high-quality healthcare to children in particular – free of charge. In 2016, a new outpatient department was opened enabling vast expansion from ca. 3,000 outpatients to almost 16,000 treated in one year. Minimally invasive cardiac interventions are also growing rapidly – up by over 25% from 1,600 in 2015 to 2,056 in 2016. Open heart surgery continues to be a major strength of the center with 828 interventions performed in 2016 – more than 20% of which were on babies in first month of life.
