    To date, there have been no reports of recording epicardial electrograms at the onset of spontaneous ventricular fibrillation (VF) in patients with Brugada syndrome (BrS). In the case of BrS, unipolar and bipolar electrogram recording on the right ventricular epicardium revealed that dispersion of repolarization with delayed potential was associated with spontaneous occurrence of VF. Phase 2 reentry associated with shortening and dispersion of action potential could have been recorded for the first time in BrS. Epicardial unipolar mapping can guide accurate and appropriate ablation for the elimination of arrhythmia substrate in J wave syndrome.

    INTRODUCTION: Electrical storm (ES) of ventricular tachyarrhythmias (VTAs) is an important cause of sudden death in patients with cardiac sarcoidosis (CS). VTAs in CS are associated with myocardial scarring and inflammation. However, little is known about the risk factors of ES in patients with CS and VTAs. The objective of this study is to clarify the characteristics and risk factors for the development of ES in patients with CS. METHODS: The study population included consecutive 52 patients with CS and sustained VTA. Twenty-five out of 52 patients experienced ES. We evaluated clinical characteristics, imaging modalities, and electrocardiogram (ECG) parameters to determine the risk factors associated with ES. RESULTS: Half of the patients experienced VTAs as the initial symptom of sarcoidosis, and eight patients had ES as the initial VTA episode. There were no differences in cardiac imaging abnormalities between patients with and without ES. Among ECG markers, significant QRS fragmentation (odds ratio [OR]: 7.9, p = .01) and epsilon waves (OR: 12.24, p = .02) were associated with ES. Among the ventricular tachycardia (VT) characteristics, multiple morphologies of monomorphic VTs (OR: 10.9, p < .01), short VT cycle lengths (OR: 12.5, p < .01), and polymorphic VT (OR: 13.5, p < .01) were associated with ES. Bidirectional VTs were detected in 10 patients with ES and one patient without ES. Immunosuppressive therapy relieved ES in some patients. CONCLUSIONS: ES was common in patients with CS and VTAs. Significant depolarization abnormalities that appeared as QRS fragmentation, epsilon waves, and specific VT characteristics were associated with ES.

    BACKGROUND: Syncope is a significant prognostic factor in patients with Brugada syndrome (BrS). However, the risk of ventricular arrhythmia in patients with nonarrhythmic loss of consciousness (LOC) is similar to that in asymptomatic patients. LOC events after implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) implantation may provide insights into underlying causes of the initial LOC episode. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to examine LOC characteristics following ICD implantation. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 112 patients with BrS (mean age 47 years; 111 men) who were treated with an ICD. The patients were classified into 3 groups based on symptoms at implantation: asymptomatic (35 patients); LOC (46 patients); and ventricular tachyarrhythmia (VTA) (31 patients). We evaluated the incidence and cause of LOC during long-term follow-up after ICD implantation. RESULTS: During mean follow-up of 12.2 years, 41 patients (37%) experienced LOC after ICD implantation. Arrhythmic LOC occurred in 5 asymptomatic patients, 14 LOC patients, and 16 patients with VTA. Nonarrhythmic LOC, similar to the initial episode, occurred after ICD implantation in 6 patients with prior LOC (2 with neurally mediated syncope and 4 with epilepsy). Most epileptic patients experienced LOC during rest or sleeping, and did not show an abnormal encephalogram during initial evaluation of the LOC episodes. CONCLUSION: After ICD implantation, 13% of patients had nonarrhythmic LOC similar to the initial episode. Accurate classification of LOC based on a detailed medical history is important for risk stratification, although distinguishing arrhythmic LOC from epilepsy-related LOC episodes can be challenging depending on the circumstances and characteristics of the LOC event.

    BACKGROUND: J waves in the inferior or lateral leads are characteristic electrocardiographic (ECG) changes in patients with early repolarization syndrome (ERS). However, the presence of J waves in the left posterior region has not yet been evaluated. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to clarify the significance of J waves in the posterior left ventricle using leads V7-V9 and a body surface mapping (BSM) system. METHODS: Forty patients diagnosed with ERS were included. All patients exhibited J waves in either the contiguous inferior, lateral, or posterior leads. We evaluated the incidence of J waves in the inferolateral and posterior leads using a 15-lead ECG with synthesized V7-V9 and an 87-lead BSM. Additionally, we assessed the arrhythmogenicity of the posterior regions based on the morphology of the premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) associated with ventricular fibrillation (VF). RESULTS: J waves were observed in the lateral, inferior, and posterior leads of 26 (65%), 31 (78%), and 39 (97%) patients, respectively. J waves were found only in the posterior leads of 5 patients. BSM was evaluated in 9 patients, all of whom exhibited a positive area on the posterior region. PVCs associated with VF were recorded in 5 patients. Among patients with inferolateral and posterior J waves, all except 1 patient who displayed left bundle branch block morphology showed PVCs originating from the posterior left ventricular region. CONCLUSION: Posterior J waves are common in ERS patients. This abnormality can be detected using leads V7-V9 and the BSM system and may be associated with arrhythmogenesis.

    Background: Various types of arrhythmia are observed in patients with cardiac amyloidosis, but the prevalence of arrhythmia has not been fully investigated. This study investigated the prevalence and treatment of arrhythmias in patients with cardiac amyloidosis before the introduction of new agents for amyloidosis, such as tafamidis. Methods and Results: Of 53 patients who were histologically diagnosed with cardiac amyloidosis at 10 centers in western Japan between 2009 and 2021, 43 who were diagnosed on the basis of immunohistochemical staining were evaluated in this study. Of these 43 patients, 13 had immunoglobulin light-chain (AL) amyloidosis and 30 had transthyretin (ATTR) amyloidosis; further, 27 had atrial tachyarrhythmia, 13 had ventricular tachyarrhythmia, and 17 had bradyarrhythmia. Atrial fibrillation (AF) was the most common arrhythmia in patients with cardiac amyloidosis (n=24; 55.8%), especially among those with ATTR amyloidosis (70.0% of ATTR vs. 23.1% of AL). Eleven (25.6%) patients were treated with a cardiac implantable device. All 3 patients with pacemakers were alive at the last follow-up (median 76.7 months; interquartile range [IQR] 4.8-146.4 months). Of the 8 patients who underwent AF ablation, there was no recurrence in 6 (75%) after a median of 39.3 months (IQR 19.8-59.3 months). Conclusions: The prevalence of various arrhythmias was high in patients with cardiac amyloidosis. AF occurred most frequently in patients with cardiac amyloidosis, especially among patients with ATTR.

    Background The appearance of complete right bundle-branch block (CRBBB) in Brugada syndrome (BrS) is associated with an increased risk of ventricular fibrillation. The pathophysiological mechanism of CRBBB in patients with BrS has not been well established. We aimed to clarify the significance of a conduction delay zone associated with arrhythmias on CRBBB using body surface mapping in patients with BrS. Methods and Results Body surface mapping was recorded in 11 patients with BrS and 8 control patients both with CRBBB. CRBBB in control patients was transiently exhibited by unintentional catheter manipulation (proximal RBBB). Ventricular activation time maps were constructed for both of the groups. We divided the anterior chest into 4 areas (inferolateral right ventricle [RV], RV outflow tract [RVOT], intraventricular septum, and left ventricle) and compared activation patterns between the 2 groups. Excitation propagated to the RV from the left ventricle through the intraventricular septum with activation delay in the entire RV in the control group (proximal RBBB pattern). In 7 patients with BrS, excitation propagated from the inferolateral RV to the RVOT with significant regional activation delay. The remaining 4 patients with BrS showed a proximal RBBB pattern with the RVOT activation delay. The ventricular activation time in the inferolateral RV was significantly shorter in patients with BrS without a proximal RBBB pattern than in control patients. Conclusions The CRBBB morphology in patients with BrS consisted of 2 mechanisms: (1) significantly delayed conduction in the RVOT and (2) proximal RBBB with RVOT conduction delay. Significant RVOT conduction delay without proximal RBBB resulted in CRBBB morphology in patients with BrS.

    BACKGROUND: Atrial septal defect (ASD) closure can cause acute pulmonary edema. Before transcatheter closure is performed, temporary balloon occlusion test (BOT) is recommended in patients with left ventricular dysfunction to predict the risk of pulmonary edema. However, the accuracy of BOT has not been verified. This study aimed to compare hemodynamic differences between BOT and transcatheter closure. METHODS: A total of 42 patients with a single ASD over age 18 years who underwent BOT before transcatheter ASD closure between October 2010 and May 2020 were analyzed. Pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP) was measured using a Swan-Ganz catheter placed in the pulmonary artery at baseline, after 10 min of BOT, and after transcatheter closure. Amplatzer septal occluder was used for all transcatheter closures. RESULTS: Mean patient age was 64 ± 18 years (range, 18-78). Mean ASD diameter and pulmonary to systemic flow ratio were 18 ± 5 and 2.8 ± 1.0 mm, respectively. Mean PCWP at baseline, during BOT, and after transcatheter closure was 8.9 ± 2.9, 13.5 ± 4.2, and 9.5 ± 2.6 mmHg, respectively. The difference between BOT and after transcatheter closure values was significant (p < 0.001). During BOT, PCWP increased ≥18 mmHg in 7 patients, whereas after ASD closure, PCWP was <18 mmHg in all 7 and none developed acute pulmonary edema. CONCLUSION: Temporary balloon occlusion of an ASD and transcatheter ASD closure result in different hemodynamic change. BOT overestimates increase of PCWP after transcatheter ASD closure and requires careful interpretation. Well-designed, larger studies in higher-risk patients are warranted to verify the clinical implications of BOT in more detail.

    Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is one of the most common inherited arrhythmias and multiple genes have been reported as causative. Presently, genetic diagnosis for LQTS patients is becoming widespread and contributing to implementation of therapies. However, causative genetic mutations cannot be detected in about 20% of patients. To elucidate additional genetic mutations in LQTS, we performed deep-sequencing of previously reported 15 causative and 85 candidate genes for this disorder in 556 Japanese LQTS patients. We performed in-silico filtering of the sequencing data and found 48 novel variants in 33 genes of 53 cases. These variants were predicted to be damaging to coding proteins or to alter the binding affinity of several transcription factors. Notably, we found that most of the LQTS-related variants in the RYR2 gene were in the large cytoplasmic domain of the N-terminus side. They might be useful for screening of LQTS patients who had no known genetic factors. In addition, when the mechanisms of these variants in the development of LQTS are revealed, it will be useful for early diagnosis, risk stratification, and selection of treatment.

RA-FW 1-2 was constantly captured antidromically. However, the earliest atrial activation site (EAAS = His1-2) was orthodromically (red circle) and antidromically (blue square) captured at a ratio of 3:1. The electrogram morphology at the EAAS was different between orthodromically and antidromically electrograms captured during pacing. Moreover, the interval between the S1 and orthodromically captured electrogram was gradually prolonged.

    This study aimed to elucidate the utility of a novel ultrasound-based technique, shear wave dispersion slope (SWDS) analysis, which estimates tissue viscosity, for evaluating the severity of myocardial inflammation. Experimental autoimmune myocarditis (EAM) at different disease phases [3-week (acute phase): n = 10, 5-week (subacute phase): n = 9, and 7-week (late phase): n = 11] were developed in male Lewis rats. SWDS was measured in the right and the left ventricular free walls (RVFW and LVFW) under a retrograde perfusion condition. Histological myocardial inflammation was evaluated by CD68 staining. The accumulation of CD68-positive cells was severe in the myocardium of the EAM 3-week group. The median (interquartile range) SWDS of RVFW was significantly higher in the EAM 3-week group [9.9 (6.5-11.0) m/s/kHz] than in the control group [5.4 (4.5-6.8) m/s/kHz] (P = 0.034). The median SWDS of LVFW was also significantly higher in the EAM 3-week group [8.1 (6.4-11.0) m/s/kHz] than in the control group [4.4 (4.2-4.8) m/s/kHz] (P = 0.003). SWDS and the percentage of CD68-positive area showed a significant correlation in RVFW (R2 = 0.64, P < 0.001) and LVFW (R2 = 0.73, P < 0.001). This study showed that SWDS was elevated in ventricular walls with acute inflammation and also significantly correlated with the degree of myocardial inflammation. These results suggest the potential of SWDS in estimating the histological severity of acute myocarditis.

    BACKGROUND: The number of patients with bradyarrhythmia and the number of patients with cardiac pacemakers are increasing with the aging population and the increase in the number of patients with heart diseases. Some patients in whom a cardiac pacemaker has been implanted experience problems such as pacemaker infection and inconvenience due to electromagnetic interference. We have reported that overexpression of HCN channels producing a pacemaker current in mouse embryonic stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes showed enhanced pacing function in vitro and in vivo. The aim of this study was to determine whether HCN4 overexpression in human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (iPSC-CMs) can strengthen the pacing function of the cells. METHODS: Human HCN4 was transduced in the AAVS1 locus of human induced pluripotent stem cells by nucleofection and HCN4-overexpressing iPSC-CMs were generated. Gene expression profiles, frequencies of spontaneous contraction and pacing abilities of HCN4-overexpressing and non-overexpressing iPSC-CMs in vitro were compared. RESULTS: HCN4-overexpressing iPSC-CMs showed higher spontaneous contraction rates than those of non-overexpressing iPSC-CMs. They responded to an HCN channel blocker and β adrenergic stimulation. The pacing rates against parent iPSC line-derived cardiomyocytes were also higher in HCN4-overexpressing iPSC-CMs than in non-overexpressing iPSC-CMs. CONCLUSIONS: Overexpression of HCN4 showed enhancement of If current, spontaneous firing and pacing function in iPSC-CMs. These data suggest this transgenic cell line may be useful as a cardiac pacemaker.

    Catheter ablation (CA) of ventricular tachycardia (VT) after repair of congenital heart disease may be difficult because of complex anatomy and sometimes unmappable VT. Here, we report a 41-year-old woman with successful CA of unmappable VT in a patient with complete transposition of the great arteries after Rastelli repair. Clinical VT was induced by programmed electrical stimulation, when the mapping catheter was placed at the high anterior right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT). During VT, the local potential at the high anterior RVOT under the right ventricle (RV) - pulmonary artery (PA) conduit was equal to that at the timing of onset of QRS. The VT was unmappable because the hemodynamics deteriorated. Pace mapping was also tried at the aortic cusp and the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT). Fractionated potential during sinus rhythm was observed at the noncoronary cusp, and the paced QRS morphology at this site was similar to that of the clinical VT, with a delay of 55 ms from pacing to the onset of QRS. However, mapping at the LVOT was impossible due to the difficulty of catheter manipulation. Radiofrequency energy was successfully applied at the noncoronary cusp and the high anterior RVOT under the RV-PA conduit. <Learning objective: This report is a rare case of successful catheter ablation of unmappable ventricular tachycardia (VT) in a patient with complete transposition of the great arteries after Rastelli repair. The VT was unmappable because of intolerable hemodynamics. However, we could speculate the exit or isthmus of the VT by pace mapping or local potential and eliminate the VT.>.

    BACKGROUND: Multiple spikes within the QRS complex, known as fragmented QRS (fQRS), are associated with the occurrences of ventricular arrhythmic events (VAEs) in patients with Brugada syndrome and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. However, the association between fQRS and occurrence of VAEs in patients with cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) has not been elucidated. METHODS: We evaluated the associations between fQRS and cardiac events including VAEs [non-sustained ventricular tachycardia (NSVT), sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT), and ventricular fibrillation (VF)], hospitalization for heart failure, and all-cause death in 68 patients with CS (30 patients with fQRS vs. 38 patients without fQRS) over a 5-year period. RESULTS: Cardiac events occurred in 22 patients with fQRS and 18 patients without fQRS (73% vs. 47%, p=0.009). Of the cardiac events that occurred in CS patients, VAEs occurred more frequently in patients with fQRS than in patients without fQRS (VAEs: 70% vs. 45%, p=0.017; NSVT: 70% vs. 45%, p=0.010; VT: 43% vs. 18%, p=0.011, and VF: 6.7% vs. 2.6%, p=0.34), whereas there was no significant difference in hospitalization for heart failure or all-cause death between patients with and those without fQRS (hospitalization for heart failure: 6.7% vs. 5.3%, p=0.75; all-cause death: 6.7% vs. 5.3%, p=0.64). Multivariate analysis showed that fQRS in the baseline electrocardiogram was independently associated with VAEs (hazard ratio: 2.21, 95% confidence interval: 1.15-4.25, p=0.017). CONCLUSION: fQRS is a predictor of VAEs in patients with CS.

    BACKGROUND: The optimal strategy for catheter ablation of persistent atrial fibrillation (PeAF) remains unknown. A preprocedural additive treatment for patients undergoing pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) alone to optimize catheter ablation should be investigated. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine whether pharmacologic cardioversion with a fixed low-dose antiarrhythmic drug (AAD) before ablation could stratify the long-term outcome of a PVI-alone strategy. METHODS: We conducted a prospective cohort study of PeAF patients who underwent PVI using contact force-sensing catheters. No substrate modification was performed. Fixed low-dose bepridil was administered before ablation for cardioversion and patients were classified into 2 groups based on obtaining sinus rhythm (SR). The rate of recurrence of atrial fibrillation (AF) and/or atrial tachycardia (AT) within 36 months was compared between the 2 groups. RESULTS: Among the 303 PeAF patients who received the AAD, 102 returned to SR (SR group), and the other 201 had persistence of AF (non-SR group). AF persistence duration at baseline and during bepridil administration was similar between the 2 groups. The SR group had a significantly lower 36-month AF/AT recurrence rate than the non-SR group (17 [22.2%] vs 55 [34.0%], log-rank P = .022). AT-type recurrence was observed in 16 patients (2 [3.3%] in the SR group vs 14 [8.9%] in the non-SR group; log-rank P = .051). Nonresponse to AAD was an independent predictor of AF/AT recurrence after adjusting for other risk factors (hazard ratio 1.34; 95% confidence interval 1.01-1.77; P = .040). CONCLUSION: Preprocedural pharmacologic cardioversion could be a useful determinant for patients with treatable PeAF by PVI alone.

    BACKGROUND: Numerous basic studies have shown a relationship between interleukin-6 (IL-6) and the development or severity of myocarditis. However, there has been no study in which the effect of IL-6 levels in patients with myocarditis was evaluated. METHODS: We enrolled control patients (n = 12) and consecutive patients with acute myocarditis (n = 13), including lymphocytic, eosinophilic, and giant cell myocarditis, and investigated the pathological and clinical effects of IL-6 on human myocarditis. RESULTS: The serum IL-6 level in patients with myocarditis (16.7 [9.9, 103.8] pg/mL) was significantly higher than that in the control patients (1.4 [1.0, 1.9] pg/mL) (P<0.001). Immunohistochemical analysis showed that IL-6 was expressed in infiltrating inflammatory cells of endomyocardial biopsy samples from all patients with myocarditis. Moreover, the log-transformed value of serum IL-6 level showed significant positive correlations with serum creatine kinase (CK) level, CK-MB level, peak CK level, peak CK-MB level and C-reactive protein level (all P ≤ 0.005) and a negative correlation with the left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (p = 0.014). We divided the patients with myocarditis into a low IL-6 group (9.9 [4.5, 14.2] pg/dL, n = 7) and a high IL-6 group (108.9 [51.1, 130.9] pg/dL, n = 6). The degree of infiltration of IL-6-expressing inflammatory cells in myocardial samples obtained from patients in the high IL-6 group was significantly more severe than that in samples obtained from patients in the low IL-6 group. Furthermore, patients in the high IL-6 group significantly more frequently received catecholamine therapy (P = 0.005), venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (P = 0.029), and artificial respirator support (P = 0.021) in the acute phase of myocarditis. CONCLUSION: The results suggest that there is a strong impact of IL-6 on cardiac injury and dysfunction in patients with myocarditis.

    AIMS: The prognostic value of genetic variants for predicting lethal arrhythmic events (LAEs) in Brugada syndrome (BrS) remains controversial. We investigated whether the functional curation of SCN5A variations improves prognostic predictability. METHODS AND RESULTS: Using a heterologous expression system and whole-cell patch clamping, we functionally characterized 22 variants of unknown significance (VUSs) among 55 SCN5A mutations previously curated using in silico prediction algorithms in the Japanese BrS registry (n = 415). According to the loss-of-function (LOF) properties, SCN5A mutation carriers (n = 60) were divided into two groups: LOF-SCN5A mutations and non-LOF SCN5A variations. Functionally proven LOF-SCN5A mutation carriers (n = 45) showed significantly severer electrocardiographic conduction abnormalities and worse prognosis associated with earlier manifestations of LAEs (7.9%/year) than in silico algorithm-predicted SCN5A carriers (5.1%/year) or all BrS probands (2.5%/year). Notably, non-LOF SCN5A variation carriers (n = 15) exhibited no LAEs during the follow-up period. Multivariate analysis demonstrated that only LOF-SCN5A mutations and a history of aborted cardiac arrest were significant predictors of LAEs. Gene-based association studies using whole-exome sequencing data on another independent SCN5A mutation-negative BrS cohort (n = 288) showed no significant enrichment of rare variants in 16 985 genes including 22 non-SCN5A BrS-associated genes as compared with controls (n = 372). Furthermore, rare variations of non-SCN5A BrS-associated genes did not affect LAE-free survival curves. CONCLUSION: In vitro functional validation is key to classifying the pathogenicity of SCN5A VUSs and for risk stratification of genetic predictors of LAEs. Functionally proven LOF-SCN5A mutations are genetic burdens of sudden death in BrS, but evidence for other BrS-associated genes is elusive.

    AIMS: This study aimed to investigate additional risk stratification benefits of hepatic steatosis (HS) concurrently assessed during coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) in a large patient cohort with suspected stable coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS AND RESULTS: In this prospective study, 1148 Japanese outpatients without a history of CAD who underwent coronary CTA for suspected stable CAD (mean age 64 ± 14 years) were included. HS, defined on CT as a hepatic-to-spleen attenuation ratio of <1.0, was examined just before the evaluation of adverse CTA findings, defined as obstructive and/or high-risk plaque. The major adverse cardiac events (MACE) were the composite of cardiac death, acute coronary syndrome, and late revascularization. The incremental predictive value of HS was evaluated using the global χ2 test and C-statistic. HS was identified in 247 (22%) patients. During a median follow-up of 3.9 years, MACE was observed in 40 (3.5%) patients. HS was significantly associated with MACE in a model that included adverse CTA findings (hazard ratio 4.01, 95% confidence interval 2.12-7.59, P < 0.001). By adding HS to the Framingham risk score and adverse CTA findings, the global χ2 score and C-statistic significantly increased from 29.0 to 49.5 (P < 0.001) and 0.74 to 0.81 (P = 0.026), respectively. In subgroup analyses in patients with diabetes mellitus and metabolic syndrome, HS had significant additive predictive value for MACE over the Framingham risk score and adverse CTA findings. CONCLUSION: In patients with suspected stable CAD, concurrent evaluation of HS during coronary CTA enables more accurate detection of patients at higher risk of MACE.

    BACKGROUND: Oxidized high-density lipoprotein (oxHDL), unlike native HDL, is characterized by reduced cholesterol efflux capability and anti-inflammatory properties. The ratio of oxHDL to apolipoprotein A-I (oxHDL/apoAI) is a possible marker of dysfunctional HDL. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between oxHDL/apoAI and coronary plaque characteristics that increase the likelihood of cardiovascular events as determined by coronary computed tomography (CT) angiography. METHODS: A total of 297 patients (mean age; 67 years, men; 63%) who underwent coronary CT angiography for suspected stable coronary artery disease (CAD) were included. High-risk plaques (HRP) were defined by three characteristics: positive remodeling; low-density plaques; and spotty calcification. Significant stenosis was defined as a luminal narrowing of >70%. Serum concentrations of oxHDL were measured using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. RESULTS: Patients with higher oxHDL/ApoAI showed significantly greater prevalence of HRP (p = 0.03) and significant stenosis (p < 0.01) compared with patients with low oxHDL/ ApoAI. The multivariate logistic analysis demonstrated that oxHDL/ApoAI significantly associated with the presence of HRP and significant coronary stenosis (p = 0.01 and < 0.01). In the follow-up study including 243 patients for a median period of 1.8 years, univariate cox regression analysis showed that oxHDL/ApoAI, HRP and significant stenosis were significant predictors of cardiovascular events. CONCLUSIONS: A high oxHDL/apoAI was associated with the presence of HRP and significant stenosis determined by coronary CT angiography, which can lead to cardiovascular events in patients with suspected stable CAD.

    BACKGROUND: Transvenous lead extraction (TLE) is necessary because of system infection, lead malfunction, or system upgrade. Patients with severe left ventricular dysfunction (SLVD) undergoing TLE may be at a higher risk because hemodynamic parameters may change unfavorably during or after TLE; however, this has not yet been clarified. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to examine whether patients with SLVD undergoing TLE have higher mortality. METHODS: All patients who underwent TLE were stratified as follows: patients with ejection fraction ≤ 35% (SLVD group) and those with ejection fraction > 35% (non-SLVD group). RESULTS: We assessed the data of 200 patients (SLVD group, 36; non-SLVD group, 164). Brain natriuretic peptide level and cardiac resynchronization therapy rate were higher in the SLVD group than in the non-SLVD group. There were no significant between-group differences in major complications and clinical success rates. Patients with SLVD were more likely to require additional hemodynamic support, such as catecholamine infusion, temporary atrial-ventricle sequential pacing, and temporary cardiac resynchronization therapy pacing (27.8% vs 1.2%; P < .001). The survival rate was not significantly different between the groups at 30 days and 1 year after TLE (SLVD vs non-SLVD: 30 days: 97.2% vs 99.4%; P = .215; 1 year: 80.6% vs 91.5%; P = .053). Multivariate Cox regression analysis revealed log brain natriuretic peptide and serum hemoglobin levels as predictors for 1-year mortality. CONCLUSION: The prognosis after TLE was comparable between patients with and without SLVD. However, additional hemodynamic support was often necessary for patients with SLVD.

    BACKGROUND: Risk stratification of cardiovascular events in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) has not been established. Coronary artery calcium score (CACS) and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are independently associated with cardiovascular events in T2DM patients. This study examined the incremental prognostic value of NAFLD assessed by non-enhanced computed tomography (CT) in addition to CACS and Framingham risk score (FRS) for cardiovascular events in T2DM patients. METHODS: This prospective pilot study included 529 T2DM outpatients with no history of cardiovascular disease who underwent CACS measurement because of suspected coronary artery disease. NAFLD was defined on CT images as a liver:spleen attenuation ratio < 1.0. Cardiovascular events were defined as cardiovascular death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, late coronary revascularization, nonfatal stroke, or hospitalization for heart failure. RESULTS: Among 529 patients (61% men, mean age 65 years), NAFLD was identified in 143 (27%). Forty-four cardiovascular events were documented during a median follow-up of 4.4 years. In multivariate Cox regression analysis, NAFLD, CACS, and FRS were associated with cardiovascular events (hazard ratios and 95% confidence intervals 5.43, 2.82-10.44, p < 0.001; 1.56, 1.32-1.86, p < 0.001; 1.23, 1.08-1.39, p = 0.001, respectively). The global χ2 score for predicting cardiovascular events increased significantly from 27.0 to 49.7 by adding NAFLD to CACS and FRS (p < 0.001). The addition of NAFLD to a model including CACS and FRS significantly increased the C-statistic from 0.71 to 0.80 (p = 0.005). The net reclassification achieved by adding CACS and FRS was 0.551 (p < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: NAFLD assessed by CT, in addition to CACS and FRS, could be useful for identifying T2DM patients at higher risk of cardiovascular events.

    PURPOSE: High-risk patients can be identified by preprocedural computed tomography (CT) before lead extraction. However, CT evaluation may be difficult especially for lead tip identification due to artifacts in the leads. Selective right ventriculography (RVG) may enable preprocedural evaluation of lead perforation. We investigated the efficacy of RVG for identifying right ventricular (RV) lead perforation compared with CT in patients who underwent lead extraction. METHODS: Ninety-five consecutive patients who were examined by thin-section non-ECG-gated multidetector CT and RVG before lead extraction were investigated retrospectively. Newly recognized pericardial effusion after lead extraction was used as a reference standard for lead perforation. We analyzed the prevalence of RV lead perforation diagnosed by each method. The difference in the detection rates of lead perforation by RVG and CT was evaluated. RESULTS: Of the 115 RV leads in the 95 patients, lead perforation was diagnosed for 35 leads using CT, but the leads for 29 (83%) of those 35 leads diagnosed as lead perforation by CT were shown to be within the right ventricle by RVG. Three patients with 5 leads could not be evaluated by CT due to motion artifacts. The diagnostic accuracies of RVG and CT were significantly different (p < 0.001). There was no complication of pericardial effusion caused by RV lead extraction. CONCLUSION: RVG for identification of RV lead perforation leads to fewer false-positives compared to non-ECG-gated CT. However, even in cases in which lead perforation is diagnosed, most leads may be safely extracted by transvenous lead extraction.

    Background Sinus tachycardia during exercise attenuates ST-segment elevation in patients with Brugada syndrome, whereas ST-segment augmentation after an exercise test is a high-risk sign. Some patients have premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) related to exercise, but the significance of exercise-related PVCs in patients with Brugada syndrome is still unknown. The objective of this study was to determine the significance of exercise-related PVCs for predicting occurrence of ventricular fibrillation (VF) in patients with Brugada syndrome. Methods and Results The subjects were 307 patients with Brugada syndrome who performed a treadmill exercise test. We evaluated the occurrence of PVCs at rest, during exercise and at the peak of exercise, and during recovery after exercise (0-5 minutes). We followed the patients for 92±68 months and evaluated the occurrence of VF. PVCs occurred in 82 patients (27%) at the time of treadmill exercise test: PVCs appeared at rest in 14 patients (4%), during exercise in 60 patients (20%), immediately after exercise (0-1.5 minutes) in 28 patients (9%), early after exercise (1.5-3 minutes) in 18 patients (6%), and late after exercise (3-5 minutes) in 12 patients (4%). Thirty patients experienced VF during follow-up. Multivariable analysis including symptoms, spontaneous type 1 ECG, and PVCs in the early recovery phase showed that these factors were independently associated with VF events during follow-up. Conclusions PVCs early after an exercise test are associated with future occurrence of VF events. Rebound of vagal nerve activity at the early recovery phase would promote ST-segment augmentation and PVCs in high-risk patients with Brugada syndrome.

    BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular events in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) can be lowered by catheter ablation. We hypothesized the underlying mechanism was improvement in renal and endothelial function corresponding to AF burden, and investigated whether restoration of sinus rhythm (SR) after ablation affected these functions according to AF type. METHODS AND RESULTS: We prospectively measured estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), urinary albumin-to-creatinine ratio (UACR), and reactive hyperemia index (RHI) in 358 consecutive patients with AF before and 6 and 12 months after the ablation. For each AF type [paroxysmal AF (PAF), n = 229, and persistent AF (PeAF), n = 129], we evaluated changes in these markers and influence of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The eGFR and natural logarithm-transformed (ln) UACR improved at 6 months in the PeAF group (68.7 ± 18.7-71.8 ± 18.9 mL/min/1.73 m2, p = 0.003 and 3.1±1.6 to 2.8±1.5, p < 0.001, respectively) and remained unchanged in the PAF group. Among the PeAF patients, recurrent AF was identified in 41, but only transiently in 38 patients. PeAF at baseline independently predicted increased eGFR [odds ratio (OR)=2.13, 95 % confidence interval (CI) 1.35-3.40, p = 0.001] and decreased UACR (OR=1.94, 95 % CI 1.05-3.58, p = 0.033). In the PeAF patients with CKD, ln-RHI significantly increased at 6 months after the ablation, and the change (Δ) in ln-RHI was significantly correlated with the ΔeGFR (r=0.35, p = 0.03). CONCLUSIONS: SR restoration after ablation was associated with an improved eGFR and UACR in PeAF patients, but not PAF patients. In PeAF patients with CKD, an improved endothelial function after ablation was associated with an improved renal function.

    BACKGROUND: The new guideline (NG) published by the Japanese Circulation Society (JCS) places emphasis on previous arrhythmic syncope and inducibility of ventricular fibrillation (VF) by ≤2 extrastimuli during programmed electrical stimulation (PES) for deciding the indication of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator in patients with Brugada syndrome (BrS). This study evaluated the usefulness of the NG and compared it with the former guideline (FG) for risk stratification of patients with BrS.Methods and Results:This was a multicenter (7 Japanese hospitals) retrospective study involving 234 patients with BrS who underwent PES at baseline (226 males; mean age at diagnosis: 44.9±13.4 years). At diagnosis, 46 patients (20%) had previous VF, 100 patients (43%) had previous syncope, and 88 patients (37%) were asymptomatic. We evaluated the difference in the incidence of VF in each indication according to the new and FGs. During the follow-up period (mean: 6.9±5.2 years), the incidence of VF was higher in patients with Class IIa indication according to the NG (NG: 16/45 patients [35.6%] vs. FG: 16/104 patients [15.4%]), while the incidence of VF in patients with other than class I or IIa indication was similarly low in both guidelines (NG: 2/143 patients [1.4%] vs. FG: 2/84 patients [2.4%]). CONCLUSIONS: This study validated the usefulness of the NG for risk stratification of BrS patients.

    Background: The incidence of ventricular tachycardia (VT) in patients following Fontan operation is reported as 3.5%. Furthermore, in patients with repaired double outlet right ventricle (DORV), scar-related VT and outflow tract VT have been reported; however, Purkinje-related VT has not previously been reported. In this report, we present the case of idiopathic left VT (ILVT) in a patient with DORV who underwent Fontan operation. Case summary: A 31-year-old man was diagnosed as having DORV with complete atrioventricular defect at birth. When he was 17 years old, he underwent surgical repair, including extracardiac Fontan operation and common atrioventricular valve replacement. Five years later, VT was detected. Since some medications were ineffective in suppressing VT, he was referred to our hospital for definitive treatment. Ventricular tachycardia was induced by atrial and ventricular programmed electrical stimulations. The mechanism of the VT was determined to be re-entry. The earliest activation site was located at the mid-inferior septum of the hypoplastic left ventricle, in which Purkinje potentials were observed before the local ventricular electrogram. Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) was performed at this site to eliminate VT. Discussion: Most VTs originate from surgical scars in patients with congenital heart disease. Catheter ablation was feasible in scar-related VT. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of ILVT treated successfully with RFCA in a DORV patient who had undergone Fontan operation.

    Background - Mutation/variant-site specific risk stratification in long-QT syndrome type 1 (LQT1) has been well investigated, but it is still challenging to adapt current enormous genomic information to clinical aspects caused by each mutation/variant. We assessed a novel variant-specific risk stratification in LQT1 patients. Methods - We classified a pathogenicity of 141 KCNQ1 variants among 927 LQT1 patients (536 probands) based on the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) and Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) guidelines and evaluated whether the ACMG/AMP-based classification was associated with arrhythmic risk in LQT1 patients. Results - Among 141 KCNQ1 variants, 61 (43.3%), 55 (39.0%), and 25 (17.7%) variants were classified into pathogenic (P), likely pathogenic (LP), and variant of unknown significance (VUS), respectively. Multivariable analysis showed that proband (HR = 2.53; 95%CI = 1.94-3.32; p <0.0001), longer QTc (≥500ms) (HR = 1.44; 95%CI = 1.13-1.83; p = 0.004), variants at membrane spanning (MS) (vs. those at N/C terminus) (HR = 1.42; 95%CI = 1.08-1.88; p = 0.01), C-loop (vs. N/C terminus) (HR = 1.52; 95%CI = 1.06-2.16; p = 0.02), and P variants [(vs. LP) (HR = 1.72; 95%CI = 1.32-2.26; p <0.0001), (vs. VUS) (HR = 1.81; 95%CI = 1.15-2.99; p = 0.009)] were significantly associated with syncopal events. The ACMG/AMP-based KCNQ1 evaluation was useful for risk stratification not only in family members but also in probands. A clinical score (0~4) based on proband, QTc (≥500ms), variant location (MS or C-loop) and P variant by ACMG/AMP guidelines allowed identification of patients more likely to have arrhythmic events. Conclusions - Comprehensive evaluation of clinical findings and pathogenicity of KCNQ1 variants based on the ACMG/AMP-based evaluation may stratify arrhythmic risk of congenital long-QT syndrome type 1.

    AIMS: To establish the indication for programmed ventricular stimulation (PVS) for asymptomatic patients with Brugada syndrome (BrS), we evaluated the prognostic significance of PVS based on abnormal electrocardiogram (ECG) markers. METHODS AND RESULTS: One hundred and twenty-five asymptomatic patients with BrS were included. We performed PVS at two sites of the right ventricle with up to three extrastimuli [two pacing cycle lengths and minimum coupling interval (MCI) of 180 ms]. We followed the patients for 133 months and evaluated ventricular fibrillation (VF) events. Fragmented QRS (fQRS) and Tpeak-Tend (Tpe) interval were evaluated as ECG markers for identifying high-risk patients. Fragmented QRS and long Tpe interval (≥100 ms) were observed in 66 and 37 patients, respectively. Ventricular fibrillation was induced by PVS in 60 patients. During follow-up, 10 patients experienced VF events. Fragmented QRS, long Tpe interval, and PVS-induced VF with an MCI of 180 ms or up to two extrastimuli were associated with future VF events (fQRS: P = 0.015, Tpe ≥ 100 ms: P = 0.038, VF induction: P < 0.001). However, PVS-induced VF with an MCI of 200 ms was less specific (P = 0.049). The frequencies of ventricular tachyarrhythmia events during follow-up were 0%/year with no ECG markers and 0.1%/year with no VF induction. The existence of two ECG factors with induced VF was strongly associated with future VF events (event rate: 4.4%/year, P < 0.001), and the existence of one ECG factor with induced VF was also associated (event rate: 1.3%/year, P = 0.011). CONCLUSION: We propose PVS with a strict protocol for asymptomatic patients with fQRS and/or long Tpe interval to identify high-risk patients.

    Brugada syndrome (BrS) is an inherited channelopathy responsible for almost 20% of sudden cardiac deaths in patients with nonstructural cardiac diseases. Approximately 70% of BrS patients, the causative gene mutation(s) remains unknown. In this study, we used whole exome sequencing to investigate candidate mutations in a family clinically diagnosed with BrS. A heterozygous 1616G>A substitution (R539Q mutation) was identified in the transmembrane protein 168 (TMEM168) gene of symptomatic individuals. Similar to endogenous TMEM168, both TMEM168 wild-type (WT) and mutant proteins that were ectopically induced in HL-1 cells showed nuclear membrane localization. A significant decrease in Na+ current and Nav 1.5 protein expression was observed in HL-1 cardiomyocytes expressing mutant TMEM168. Ventricular tachyarrhythmias and conduction disorders were induced in the heterozygous Tmem168 1616G>A knock-in mice by pharmacological stimulation, but not in WT mice. Na+ current was reduced in ventricular cardiomyocytes isolated from the Tmem168 knock-in heart, and Nav 1.5 expression was also impaired. This impairment was dependent on increased Nedd4-2 binding to Nav 1.5 and subsequent ubiquitination. Collectively, our results show an association between the TMEM168 1616G>A mutation and arrhythmogenesis in a family with BrS.

    BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of transdermal β-blocker patches, which offer stable blood concentration and easy availability during operation, for prevention of perioperative myocardial injury (PMI) in high-risk patients.Methods and Results:In this randomized controlled trial, patients aged >60 years with hypertension and high revised cardiac risk index (≥2) undergoing non-cardiac surgery were randomly assigned to a bisoprolol patch or control group. Primary efficacy outcome was incidence of PMI, defined as postoperative high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) >0.014ng/mL and relative hs-cTnT change ≥20%. Secondary efficacy outcomes were number of cardiovascular events and 30-day mortality. From November 2014 to February 2019, 240 patients from 5 hospitals were enrolled in this study. The incidence of PMI was 35.7% in the bisoprolol patch group and 44.5% in the control group (P=0.18). Incidence of major adverse cardiac events including non-critical myocardial infarction, strokes, decompensated heart failure and tachyarrhythmia was similar between the 2 groups. Tachyarrhythmia tended to be higher in the control group. There were no significant differences in safety outcomes including significant hypotension and bradycardia requiring any treatment between the 2 groups. CONCLUSIONS: Bisoprolol patches do not influence the incidence of PMI and cardiovascular events in high-risk patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery, but perioperative use of these patches is safe.

    BACKGROUND: In heart failure (HF) patients implanted with high-energy devices, worsening of HF can be diagnosed from intrathoracic impedance (ITI) before symptoms appear. Early therapeutic intervention can prevent HF worsening, but the optimal intervention remains unknown. This study aimed to examine which lifestyle modifications or medications can improve HF indicators in asymptomatic HF patients diagnosed from ITI.Methods and Results:This multicenter, prospective, randomized study included patients with high-energy devices, left ventricular ejection fraction <40%, or with a history of HF hospitalization. After the OptiVol alert was evoked by decreased ITI, patients underwent examinations. If they were diagnosed with HF, they were randomly assigned to 3 groups: lifestyle modification, diuretic, or nitrate. After 1 week, they underwent the same examinations. The primary endpoint was change in ITI and serum B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP). Totally, 57 patients were randomized. In all 3 groups, ITI was significantly increased post-intervention compared with pre-intervention. In the diuretic and nitrate groups, logBNP post-intervention was significantly lower than pre-intervention, but not in the lifestyle modification group. CONCLUSIONS: Compared with lifestyle modifications, diuretic and nitrate therapy for 1 week may be more effective management of HF detected by decreased ITI. However, lifestyle modification may have the additional benefits of reducing the workload or cost.

    BACKGROUND: Multiple spikes in the QRS complex (fragmented QRS [fQRS]) on 12-lead electrocardiography have been associated with ventricular arrhythmic events (VAEs) in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). The aim of this study was to assess the association between new appearances of fQRS and cardiac events in patients with HCM.Methods and Results:The association between baseline fQRS and cardiac events, namely VAEs, heart failure-related hospitalization, and all-cause death, was evaluated retrospectively in 146 HCM patients (46 patients with fQRS, 100 without fQRS). The median follow-up was 5.3 years. Cardiac events occurred in 29 patients with baseline fQRS and 32 patients without baseline fQRS (63% vs. 32%; P<0.001). VAEs occurred in a significantly larger percentage of patients with than without baseline fQRS (54% vs. 23%, respectively; P<0.001). Of the 100 patients without baseline fQRS, 33 had a new appearance of fQRS during the 4.6-year follow-up, whereas 67 did not. VAEs occurred more frequently in the 33 patients with the appearance of fQRS than in those without (42% vs. 13%, respectively; P=0.001). Multivariable analysis showed that the new appearance of fQRS documented before VAEs was associated with VAEs (hazard ratio 4.29, 95% confidence interval 1.81-10.2; P=0.001). CONCLUSIONS: The new appearance of fQRS was associated with an increased risk of VAEs in HCM patients.

    OBJECTIVE: Limited data are currently available regarding the long-term prognosis of patients with J-wave syndrome (JWS). The aim of this study was to investigate the long-term prognosis of patients with JWS and identify predictors of the recurrence of ventricular fibrillation (VF). METHODS: This was a multicentre retrospective study (seven Japanese hospitals) involving 134 patients with JWS (Brugada syndrome (BrS): 85; early repolarisation syndrome (ERS): 49) treated with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator. All patients had a history of VF. All patients with ERS underwent drug provocation testing with standard and high intercostal ECG recordings to rule out BrS. The impact of global J waves (type 1 ECG or anterior J waves and inferolateral J waves in two or more leads) on the prognosis was evaluated. RESULTS: During the 91±66 months of the follow-up period, 52 (39%) patients (BrS: 37; ERS: 15) experienced recurrence of VF. Patients with BrS and ERS with global J waves showed a significantly higher incidence of VF recurrence than those without (BrS: log-rank, p=0.014; ERS: log-rank, p=0.0009). The presence of global J waves was a predictor of VF recurrence in patients with JWS (HR: 2.16, 95% CI 1.21 to 3.91, p=0.0095), while previously reported high-risk electrocardiographic parameters (high-amplitude J waves ≥0.2 mV and J waves associated with a horizontal or descending ST segment) were not predictive of VF recurrence. CONCLUSIONS: This multicentre long-term study showed that the presence of global J waves was associated with a higher incidence of VF recurrence in patients with JWS.

    In order to prevent ischemic stroke, it is important to identify and treat patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) who do not consult a doctor in a medical institution. The aim of this study was to determine the consultation rate at medical institutions for patients with AF in group medical examinations conducted in a city in western Japan. Of 6101 examinees of group medical examinations (40 years of age or older) conducted in Ibara City, Okayama Prefecture, Japan, from 2012 to 2014, 4338 participants (71.1%) who were evaluated by electrocardiogram (ECG) gave written informed consent and responded to surveys in the form of questionnaires through a personal interview conducted by nurses were included in the Ibara-AF study. A cumulative total of 82 subjects were diagnosed as having AF by ECG (prevalence of AF = 1.89%), and 51 individuals had AF during the three-year period.15 (29.4%) of the 51 patients with AF did not regularly visit medical institutions. Among them, 46.7% (n = 7) and 53.3% (n = 8) of the patients were symptomatic and asymptomatic, respectively, and 73.3% of the patients had a CHADS2 score of more than one point. There were no significant differences in patients' characteristics between regular and non-regular visit groups. In conclusion, about one-third of the patients with AF did not regularly see a doctor in a medical institution and most of them had a CHADS2 score of more than one point in a Japanese rural area. Educating the public about the risks of AF is required.

    AIMS: There is no valid treatment strategy for addressing paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with unclosed atrial septal defect (ASD). We aimed to assess the efficacy of catheter ablation (CA) compared with transcatheter ASD closure alone for treating pre-existing paroxysmal AF in patients with ASD. METHODS AND RESULTS: Among 908 patients who underwent transcatheter ASD closure, we evaluated 50 consecutive patients (63 ± 12 years) with paroxysmal AF. We compared the AF outcomes of these patients after transcatheter ASD closure between those with and without CA prior to ASD closure. Thirty (60%) patients underwent CA. During the follow-up period after ASD closure (mean: 49 ± 23 months), recurrence of AF was observed in 6/30 (20%) patients with upfront CA and 12/20 (60%) patients with ASD closure alone. Kaplan-Meier analysis showed that the AF-free survival rate was significantly higher for patients with CA than for those with ASD closure alone (79% vs. 37% at 5 years, P = 0.002). Upfront CA and previous heart failure hospitalization were associated with recurrence of AF after ASD closure [hazard ratio (HR) 0.18, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.06-0.53; P = 0.002 and HR 4.64, 95% CI 1.60-13.49; P = 0.005, respectively]. CONCLUSION: In ASD patient with paroxysmal AF, transcatheter ASD closure alone demonstrated high AF recurrence rate after ASD closure. On the other hand, upfront CA prior to ASD closure substantially suppressed AF recurrence over the long term. A combination of CA and transcatheter ASD closure may be a feasible treatment strategy for paroxysmal AF in patients with ASD.

    Objective Remote monitoring (RM) of cardiac implantable electric devices (CIEDs) has been advocated as a healthcare standard. However, expert consensus statements suggest that all patients require annual face-to-face follow-up consultations at outpatient clinics even if RM reveals no episodes. The objective of this study was to determine the critical event rate after CIED implantation through RM. Methods This multicenter, retrospective, cohort study evaluated patients with pacemakers (PMs), implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), or cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-Ds) and analyzed whether or not the data drawn from RM included abnormal or critical events. Patients A total of 1,849 CIED patients in 12 hospitals who were followed up by the RM center in Okayama University Hospital were included in this study. Results During the mean follow-up period of 774.9 days, 16,560 transmissions were analyzed, of which 11,040 (66.7%) were abnormal events and only 676 (4.1%) were critical events. The critical event rate in the PM group was significantly lower than that in the ICD or CRT-D groups (0.9% vs. 5.0% or 5.9%, p<0.001). A multivariate analysis revealed that ICD, CRT-D, and a low ejection fraction were independently associated with critical events. In patients with ICD, the independent risk factors for a critical event were old age, low ejection fraction, Brugada syndrome, dilated phase hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy. Conclusion Although abnormal events were observed in two-thirds of the transmitted RM data, the critical event rate was <1% in patients with a PM, which was lower in comparison to the rates in patients with ICDs or CRT-Ds. A low ejection fraction was an independent predictor of critical events.

    Background: The increase in the use of cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) has been associated with an increase in CIED-related infections. Transvenous lead extraction is safe and effective for patients with CIED-related infections; however, the mortality rate in these patients is high. The prognosis after transvenous lead extraction in Japanese patients, especially those with lead-related infective endocarditis, has not been evaluated. Then, the purpose of this study is to clarify the prognosis after transvenous lead extraction in Japanese patients with CIED-related infections at a single Japanese center. Methods: A total of 107 patients who underwent transvenous lead extraction were retrospectively reviewed. The patients were divided into a lead-related infective endocarditis group (n = 32) and a pocket infection group (n = 75). Procedure success rate and prognosis after lead extraction were evaluated between the two groups. Results: Procedure success rate was not significantly different between the groups. There were no deaths associated with the procedure or with infection. The survival rate was not significantly different at 1 year or at a median of 816 days (lead-related infective endocarditis vs pocket infection; 93.7% vs 94.7%, P = 1.000; 78.1% vs 81.3%, P = 0.791) Time to reimplantation and duration of hospital stay and antibiotics therapy were significantly longer for patients with lead-related infective endocarditis. Conclusion: In this study, the prognosis for patients with lead-related infective endocarditis after transvenous lead extraction was favorable. Thus, extraction should be strongly recommended, even if the general condition of the patient is poor.

    Recent large clinical trials failed to show clear benefits of percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA) as compared with medical therapy on patients with renal artery stenosis. It was also reported that proteinuria is an adverse prognostic factor after PTRA, and PTRA is less effective in patients with overt proteinuria. From the renoprotective point of view, to reduce proteinuria after PTRA is an important therapeutic goal in patients with renal artery stenosis with overt proteinuria. We hereby describe two patients successfully treated by combination therapy with PTRA and administration of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor for bilateral renal artery disease with overt proteinuria.

    PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To summarize the current status of coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) in the assessment of coronary plaques and discuss the ability of serial coronary CTA to quantitatively measure changes in the plaque burden in response to lipid-lowering therapy. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent advances in coronary CTA have allowed identification of high-risk coronary features in acute coronary syndrome and measurement of changes in the coronary plaque burden with good reproducibility. Statin therapy may delay plaque progression and change some plaque features. However, the clinical relevance of quantitative changes in coronary plaques and the optimal methods to reduce the plaque burden remain unclear. Despite guideline-directed lipid-lowering therapy, adverse events still occur in substantial numbers of patients receiving statins. Coronary CTA is noninvasive and has high diagnostic performance in patients with coronary artery disease, making change in the plaque burden an applicable biomarker for individualized assessment of future risk.

    Atrial fibrillation (AF) frequently coexists with cardiovascular disease (CAD) in a clinical setting. However, the optimum therapy for AF patients who have concomitant CAD is unclear. We retrospectively examined the efficacy and safety of radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) prior to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with AF who had concomitant stable CAD. Between January 2014 and December 2015, a total 264 patients (179 men; mean age, 65.5 ± 10.1 years) who were referred to undergo a first RFCA procedure were reviewed in this study. Of the 264 patients, 41 (15.5%) had stable CAD detected by multi-detector computed tomography before RFCA. Thirty-seven patients who had AF with stable CAD were divided into two treatment arms: (1) RFCA prior to PCI (n = 13) and (2) PCI prior to RFCA (n = 24) [four patients excluded because of left main coronary artery disease (LMCA) or triple vessel disease (TVD)]. The median follow-up was 14 (IQR 8-19) months. There was no significant difference in AF recurrence rate after the procedure between the RFCA first group and PCI first group (P = 0.515). No symptomatic cardiovascular events occurred the during follow-up period. The PCI first group had a significantly longer duration of triple therapy (188.5 ± 167 days vs 5.6 ± 24.5 days, P = 0.01) and all of the four bleeding events occurred during triple therapy (P = 0.01). The results of this single-center pilot study suggested that prior RFCA in patients with AF coexisting with CAD could have fewer serious bleeding events than prior PCI.

    Importance: Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is caused by several ion channel genes, yet risk of arrhythmic events is not determined solely by the responsible gene pathogenic variants. Female sex after adolescence is associated with a higher risk of arrhythmic events in individuals with congenital LQTS, but the association between sex and genotype-based risk of LQTS is still unclear. Objective: To examine the association between sex and location of the LQTS-related pathogenic variant as it pertains to the risk of life-threatening arrhythmias. Design, Setting, and Participants: This retrospective observational study enrolled 1124 genotype-positive patients from 11 Japanese institutions from March 1, 2006, to February 28, 2013. Patients had LQTS type 1 (LQT1), type 2 (LQT2), and type 3 (LQT3) (616 probands and 508 family members), with KCNQ1 (n = 521), KCNH2 (n = 487) and SCN5A (n = 116) genes. Clinical characteristics such as age at the time of diagnosis, sex, family history, cardiac events, and several electrocardiographic measures were collected. Statistical analysis was conducted from January 18 to October 10, 2018. Main Outcomes and Measures: Sex difference in the genotype-specific risk of congenital LQTS. Results: Among the 1124 patients (663 females and 461 males; mean [SD] age, 20 [15] years) no sex difference was observed in risk for arrhythmic events among those younger than 15 years; in contrast, female sex was associated with a higher risk for LQT1 and LQT2 among those older than 15 years. In patients with LQT1, the pathogenic variant of the membrane-spanning site was associated with higher risk of arrhythmic events than was the pathogenic variant of the C-terminus of KCNQ1 (HR, 1.60; 95% CI, 1.19-2.17; P = .002), although this site-specific difference in the incidence of arrhythmic events was observed in female patients only. In patients with LQT2, those with S5-pore-S6 pathogenic variants in KCNH2 had a higher risk of arrhythmic events than did those with others (HR, 1.88; 95% CI, 1.44-2.44; P < .001). This site-specific difference in incidence, however, was observed in both sexes. Regardless of the QTc interval, however, female sex itself was associated with a significantly higher risk of arrhythmic events in patients with LQT2 after puberty (106 of 192 [55.2%] vs 19 of 94 [20.2%]; P < .001). In patients with LQT3, pathogenic variants in the S5-pore-S6 segment of the Nav1.5 channel were associated with lethal arrhythmic events compared with others (HR, 4.2; 95% CI, 2.09-8.36; P < .001), but no sex difference was seen. Conclusions and Relevance: In this retrospective analysis, pathogenic variants in the pore areas of the channels were associated with higher risk of arrhythmic events than were other variants in each genotype, while sex-associated differences were observed in patients with LQT1 and LQT2 but not in those with LQT3. The findings of this study suggest that risk for cardiac events in LQTS varies according to genotype, variant site, age, and sex.

    Background: Compared to screening ECG before implantation of a subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD), selectable vectors without T-wave oversensing increase after S-ICD implantation. Newer algorithms have recently become available to reduce T-wave oversensing, such as SMART pass (SP). With this function, more selectable vectors are identified after S-ICD implantation. However, this improvement in eligibility utilizing SP has not yet been well validated. We aimed to clarify S-ICD eligibility before and after S-ICD implantation with and without SP. Methods: Participants comprised 34 patients implanted with an S-ICD at Okayama University Hospital and its affiliated hospitals between February 2016 and August 2017. A total of 102 S-ICD vectors were assessed for eligibility before and after S-ICD implantation, at rest and during exercise testing. Vector availability was evaluated in the presence and absence of SP after S-ICD implantation. Results: Subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator eligibility was significantly better after implantation even without SP than S-ICD screening before S-ICD implantation, both at rest (before 65.7% vs after 95.1%, P < 0.01) and during exercise (before 59.3% vs after 90.6%, P < 0.01). SP improved S-ICD eligibility during exercise (SP on 97.9% vs off 90.6%, P = 0.03). Multivariate analysis showed the prevalence of S-ICD eligibility increased significantly after S-ICD implantation compared to screening before implantation. SP further increased selectable vectors in multivariate analysis. Conclusion: Available vectors increased significantly after S-ICD implantation compared to preoperative vectors as assessed by S-ICD screening ECG. T-wave oversensing during exercise has been an unresolved issue for S-ICD, but SP will help prevent inappropriate operation with S-ICD.

    Patients with catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) frequently have atrial arrhythmias, such as atrial tachycardia (AT) and fibrillation (AF), in addition to the ventricular tachyarrhythmias. The development of AT/AF in patients with CPVT is associated with adverse outcomes, and its management is still challenging. A 43-year-old woman with CPVT underwent radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) for drug-refractory AT/AF. Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) was carried out prior to AT ablation. Repetitive rapid firing from the left superior PV occurred frequently during PVI. After completion of PVI, the firing disappeared, but both polymorphic VT and multifocal ATs were induced by infusion of isoproterenol (ISP) (0.5 mcg/min). The origins of the two ATs were in the right atrium (RA) posterior septum [cycle length (CL), 285 ms] and ostium of the coronary sinus (CS) (CL, 235 ms). Electrophysiologic evaluation revealed that the earliest activation occurred at the RA posterior septum and CS ostium, preceding the onset of P waves by 52 ms and 84 ms, respectively. Application of radiofrequency energy at the site terminated ATs. After RFCA of the two ATs and PVI, no atrial tachyarrhythmias were induced by continuous ISP administration (0.5 mcg/min). <Learning objective: A 43-year-old woman with catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) underwent radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) for drug-refractory atrial tachyarrhythmias (AT/AF). Catecholamine hypersensitivities were observed in the right atrium and pulmonary veins (PVs) as well as the ventricle. Multiple ATs originating from not only a PV but also non-PVs should be considered for elimination of AT/AF in CPVT patients.>.

    BACKGROUND: Various risk stratifications in asymptomatic patients with Brugada syndrome (BrS) have been proposed, but the electrophysiological change that promotes ventricular fibrillation (VF) is still unknown. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to clarify the changes in electrocardiographic (ECG) markers at the onset of VF from ECGs recorded when patients were still asymptomatic. METHODS: The subjects of this study included 14 patients with VF and 48 consecutive asymptomatic patients with BrS. We compared ECGs before the initial VF events (>6 months; early phase) with ECGs at the initial VF events (late phase). In asymptomatic patients, we evaluated ECGs at 2 time points with an interval of >6 months. We evaluated various ECG markers including type 1 ECG and fragmented QRS (fQRS; multiple spikes within the QRS complex). RESULTS: ECG parameters of the early and late phases were not different except for decreased ST voltage and low incidence of type 1 ECG in asymptomatic patients. There were no differences in ECG parameters of the early phase between patients with VF and asymptomatic patients. In patients with VF, ECGs at the late phase had longer QRS intervals and intervals between the peak and the end of the T wave and more frequent type 1 ECG and fQRS than did ECGs at the early phase. Those changes were associated with initial VF events (QRS widening: odds ratio [OR] 11.5, P < .01; interval between the peak and the end of the T wave: OR 11.6, P < .01; fQRS: odds ratio 15.3, P < .01; type 1 ECG: OR 6.6, P < .05). CONCLUSION: QRS and ST-T wave abnormalities developed in association with the initial VF events. Aggravation of the conduction disturbance in addition to BrS-ECG promotes VF.

    OBJECTIVES: The principal objective was to perform an initial test of the Shanghai Brugada Scoring System. Diagnosis of probable and/or definite Brugada syndrome (BrS), possible BrS, and nondiagnostic outcomes were assigned scores of ≥3.5, 2 to 3, and <2 points, respectively. The proposed score system was based on the available published reports and on weighted coefficients derived from limited datasets, with the understanding that these recommendations would need to undergo continuing validation. BACKGROUND: The 2016 HRS/EHRA/APHRS/SOLAECE J-Wave Syndrome Consensus Report proposed a scoring system for diagnosis of BrS that takes into account electrocardiographic recordings, genetic results, clinical characteristics, and family history. METHODS: The patient population consisted of 393 patients evaluated at our hospital for BrS (271 asymptomatic, 99 with syncope, and 23 with ventricular fibrillation [VF]) between 1996 and 2016. Subjects were classified into 4 groups: group A with a score of ≤3.0 points (n = 45); group B with a score of 3.5 points (n = 186); group C with a score of 4.0 to 5.0 points (n = 81); and group D with a score of ≥5.5 points (n = 81). RESULTS: A total of 348 (88%) patients had probable and/or definite BrS, and 81 (20%) had a score ≥5.5. During a follow-up of 97.3 months (range: 39.7 to 142.1 months), 43 patients experienced VF. Significant differences were seen among the 4 groups (p = 0.01). A malignant arrhythmic event did not occur in any patient with possible or nondiagnostic BrS. CONCLUSIONS: This study provided validation for the use of the Shanghai Score System for the diagnosis and risk stratification of patients with BrS.

    A biological pacemaker is expected to solve the persisting problems of an artificial cardiac pacemaker including short battery life, lead breaks, infection, and electromagnetic interference. We previously reported HCN4 overexpression enhances pacemaking ability of mouse embryonic stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (mESC-CMs) in vitro. However, the effect of these cells on bradycardia in vivo has remained unclear. Therefore, we transplanted HCN4-overexpressing mESC-CMs into bradycardia model animals and investigated whether they could function as a biological pacemaker. The rabbit Hcn4 gene was transfected into mouse embryonic stem cells and induced HCN4-overexpressing mESC-CMs. Non-cardiomyocytes were removed under serum/glucose-free and lactate-supplemented conditions. Cardiac balls containing 5 × 103 mESC-CMs were made by using the hanging drop method. One hundred cardiac balls were injected into the left ventricular free wall of complete atrioventricular block (CAVB) model rats. Heart beats were evaluated using an implantable telemetry system 7 to 30 days after cell transplantation. The result showed that ectopic ventricular beats that were faster than the intrinsic escape rhythm were often observed in CAVB model rats transplanted with HCN4-overexpressing mESC-CMs. On the other hand, the rats transplanted with non-overexpressing mESC-CMs showed sporadic single premature ventricular contraction but not sustained ectopic ventricular rhythms. These results indicated that HCN4-overexpressing mESC-CMs produce rapid ectopic ventricular rhythms as a biological pacemaker.

    BACKGROUND: A drug provocation test using a sodium channel blocker (SCB) can unmask a type 1 ECG pattern in patients with Brugada syndrome. However, the prognostic value of the results of an SCB challenge is limited in patients with non-type 1 ECG. We investigated the associations of future risk for ventricular fibrillation with SCB-induced ECG changes and ventricular tachyarrhythmias (VTAs). METHODS AND RESULTS: We administered intravenous pilsicainide to 245 consecutive patients with Brugada syndrome (181 patients with spontaneous type 1 ECG, 64 patients with non-type 1 ECG). ECG parameters before and after the test and occurrence of drug-induced VTAs were evaluated. During a mean follow-up period of 113±57 months, fatal VTA events occurred in 31 patients (sudden death: n=3, ventricular tachycardia/ventricular fibrillation: n=28). Symptomatic patients and spontaneous type 1 ECG were associated with future fatal arrhythmic events. Univariable analysis of ECG parameters after the test showed that long PQ and QRS intervals, high ST level, and SCB-induced VTAs were associated with later VTA events during follow-up. Multivariable analysis showed that symptomatic patients, high ST level (V1) ≥0.3 mV after the test, and SCB-induced VTAs were independent predictors for future fatal arrhythmic events (hazard ratios: 3.28, 2.80, and 3.62, 95% confidence intervals: 1.54-7.47, 1.32-6.35, and 1.64-7.75, respectively; P<0.05). CONCLUSIONS: SCB-induced VTAs and ST-segment augmentation are associated with an increased risk of the development of ventricular tachycardia/ventricular fibrillation events during follow-up in patients with Brugada syndrome.

    Platypnea-orthodeoxia syndrome (POS) is a rare condition that is characterized by dyspnea and arterial oxygen desaturation, which worsen on standing and which are relieved by recumbency. We treated an 80-year-old woman with an atrial septal defect (ASD) who demonstrated POS following thoracic and lumbar vertebral compression fractures. The surgical closure of the ASD relieved her symptoms. The etiology might have been multiple compression fractures causing kyphosis and aortic distortion producing right atrial compression and increased right-to-left flow through the ASD. POS should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients who develop dyspnea after vertebral compression fractures. The careful assessment of the patient's history and clinical condition helps in the diagnosis of POS.

    BACKGROUND: High-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) is useful for detecting myocardial injury and is expected to become a prognostic marker in patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery. The aim of this pilot study evaluating the efficacy of β-blocker therapy in a perioperative setting (MAMACARI study) was to assess perioperative myocardial injury (PMI) in elderly patients with preserved ejection fraction (EF) undergoing non-cardiac surgery.Methods and Results:In this prospective observational cohort study of 151 consecutive patients with preserved EF and aged >60 years who underwent non-cardiac surgery, serum levels of hs-cTnT were measured before and on postoperative days 1 and 3 after surgery. PMI was defined as postoperative hs-cTnT >0.014 ng/mL and relative hs-cTnT change ≥20%. A total of 36 (23.8%) of the patients were diagnosed as having PMI. The incidence of a composite of cardiovascular events within 30 days after surgery, including myocardial infarction, stroke, worsening heart failure, atrial fibrillation and pulmonary embolism, was significantly higher in patients with PMI than in patients without PMI (odds ratio (OR) 9.25, P<0.001, 95% confidence interval (CI) 2.65-32.3). Multivariate analysis revealed that left ventricular diastolic dysfunction defined by echocardiography was independently associated with PMI (OR: 3.029, 95% CI: 1.341-6.84, P=0.008). CONCLUSIONS: PMI is frequently observed in elderly patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery. Diastolic dysfunction is an independent predictor of PMI.

    BACKGROUND: In Brugada syndrome (BrS), it has been reported that delayed activation in the RV is related to the development of type-1 ECG, which is more critical than type-2. On the other hand, the coexistence of complete right bundle-branch block (CRBBB), which also causes delayed activation in the RV, sometimes makes typical BrS ECG misleading. We hypothesized that premature stimulation of the RV can unmask the influence of delayed activation in the RV and convert the morphology of ECG in BrS patients. METHODS AND RESULTS: In 35 BrS patients with type-1 ECG including 8 patients with concomitant CRBBB and 6 control subjects with CRBBB, progressively premature single stimulations were delivered from the RV apex on electrophysiological study. Then we evaluated QRS morphology of fusion beats created by single premature stimulation in each patient. In 29 (83%) of 35 of the BrS patients, conversion from type-1 to type-2 ECG was observed during the process of single premature stimulation. Additionally, in all 8 BrS patients with concomitant CRBBB, type-1 or type-2 BrS ECG was revealed by premature stimulation with relief of CRBBB. These findings were not observed in any of the control subjects with CRBBB. CONCLUSION: Single premature stimulation of the RV converts ECG from type-1 to type-2 in most BrS cases and unmasks type-1 ECG in all BrS cases with CRBBB. Our results could suggest that type-1 ECG is associated with delayed activation of the RV compared with type-2 ECG.

    INTRODUCTION: New onset of ventricular fibrillation (VF) in asymptomatic patients with Brugada-type ECG is not frequent, but it cannot be negligible. Risk markers for predicting VF are usually based on results of analysis in symptomatic patients, and they have not been determined for asymptomatic patients. We analyzed ECG markers in patients with Brugada syndrome to differentiate the risk factors for VF in both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients. METHODS: The subjects were 471 patients with Brugada syndrome and we divided the subjects into two groups: Asymptomatic group (n = 326) and Symptomatic group (syncope: n = 122, VF: n = 23). We analyzed the following ECG markers: RR, PQ, QRS, QT and Tpeak-Tend (Tpe) intervals, ST level, atrial fibrillation (AF), atrioventricular block, spontaneous type 1 ECG, early repolarization (ER) and fragmented QRS (fQRS). RESULTS: During follow-up (91 ± 64 months), 41 patients experienced VF (Asymptomatic: n = 10, Symptomatic: n = 31). Univariable analysis showed that spontaneous type 1 ECG, Tpe interval (≥95 milliseconds), high ST level (≥0.52 mV) and fQRS were common predictors for VF in both the Asymptomatic and Symptomatic groups. In addition to the common risk factors, wide QRS (≥107 milliseconds), long QT interval (≥420 milliseconds), ER and AF were predictors for VF in Symptomatic group. Multivariable analysis of the Symptomatic group showed fQRS, Tpe and ER were independent predictors of prognosis. CONCLUSIONS: fQRS and Tpe interval are common risk factors for VF in both asymptomatic and symptomatic patients, whereas ER is a predictor for recurrent VF.

    BACKGROUND: The eligibility of patients with Brugada syndrome (BrS) for implantation of a subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD) is not well known. This study aimed to clarify the eligibility of BrS patients for S-ICD using electrocardiography (ECG) at rest and during exercise testing. We also analyzed factors associated with ineligibility for S-ICD from standard 12-lead ECG at rest. METHODS: We enrolled 110 consecutive BrS patients who visited Okayama university hospital from December 2015 to December 2016. All patients were assessed for S-ICD eligibility, which required one lead to satisfy the S-ICD screening template. We assessed standard 12-lead ECG parameters in all participants. Of those who passed S-ICD screening, 45 patients were assessed for S-ICD eligibility during treadmill stress test. RESULTS: Mean age of study patients was 54 ± 13 years and 108 (98%) were men. In total, 89 patients (81%) satisfied S-ICD indications at rest. Existence of complete right bundle branch block (CRBBB) on standard 12-lead ECG was a significant predictor of ineligibility for S-ICD (odds ratio, 5.00; P = 0.03; 95%CI, 1.14-21.98). Of the 45 patients who underwent treadmill stress testing, 11 patients (24%) showed ineligibility for S-ICD during the test. CONCLUSION: CRBBB was a predictor of ineligibility for S-ICD in patients with BrS. Sinus tachycardia changes ECG morphology in some patients and stress testing should be considered before S-ICD implantation.

    BACKGROUND: The genotype-phenotype correlation of SCN5A mutations as a predictor of cardiac events in Brugada syndrome remains controversial. We aimed to establish a registry limited to probands, with a long follow-up period, so that the genotype-phenotype correlation of SCN5A mutations in Brugada syndrome can be examined without patient selection bias. METHODS: This multicenter registry enrolled 415 probands (n=403; men, 97%; age, 46±14 years) diagnosed with Brugada syndrome whose SCN5A gene was analyzed for mutations. RESULTS: During a mean follow-up period of 72 months, the overall cardiac event rate was 2.5%/y. In comparison with probands without mutations (SCN5A (-), n=355), probands with SCN5A mutations (SCN5A (+), n=60) experienced their first cardiac event at a younger age (34 versus 42 years, P=0.013), had a higher positive rate of late potentials (89% versus 73%, P=0.016), exhibited longer P-wave, PQ, and QRS durations, and had a higher rate of cardiac events (P=0.017 by log-rank). Multivariate analysis indicated that only SCN5A mutation and history of aborted cardiac arrest were significant predictors of cardiac events (SCN5A (+) versus SCN5A (-): hazard ratio, 2.0 and P=0.045; history of aborted cardiac arrest versus no such history: hazard ratio, 6.5 and P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Brugada syndrome patients with SCN5A mutations exhibit more conduction abnormalities on ECG and have higher risk for cardiac events.

    A 7-year-old boy presented at our hospital with syncope. At birth, electrocardiography had shown a long QT interval with torsade de pointes (TdP). Congenital long QT syndrome (LQTS) had been diagnosed by genetic testing, and was successfully controlled with oral propranolol. At age 7, TdP had recurred with syncope. Electrocardiography revealed a prominent long QT interval with T-wave alternans. The propranolol dose was increased, but TdP remained uncontrolled. A cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) was implanted epicardially, and TdP completely resolved with atrial pacing. We report this rare case of ICD implantation in a child with LQTS.

    BACKGROUND: Fragmented QRS complexes (fQRS) in the right precordial leads are associated with occurrence of ventricular fibrillation (VF) in Brugada syndrome. Recently, epicardial mapping has revealed abnormal electrograms at the right ventricular (RV) outflow tract and inferior region of the right ventricle. fQRS may reflect the extent of the area of abnormal potentials, but whether the distribution of fQRS has prognostic value is not known. METHODS AND RESULTS: We evaluated the existence of fQRS in 456 patients with Brugada syndrome, including 117 patients with syncope and 23 patients with VF. The region of fQRS was defined as inferior (II, III, and aVF), lateral (I, aVL, and V5 and V6), anterior (V3 and V4), RV (V1 and V2), and RV outflow tract (V1 and V2 at the third intercostal space). fQRS were present in 229 patients (RV outflow tract in 175, inferior in 135, RV in 90, and lateral in 16 patients). During follow-up (mean 91 months), 39 patients experienced VF. In univariable analyses, fQRS in any distribution and fQRS in each region excluding the RV were associated with VF. Multivariable analysis showed that fQRS in the inferior (hazard ratio, 3.9; confidence interval, 1.9-8.5), lateral (hazard ratio, 3.5; confidence interval, 1.2-8.2), and RV outflow tract (hazard ratio, 2.5; confidence interval, 1.2-5.6) were associated with VF events. The presence of multiple regions of fQRS was associated with worse prognosis. CONCLUSIONS: The distribution of fQRS is associated with prognosis in Brugada syndrome, further supporting the association of fQRS and arrhythmia substrate.

    Background: Brugada syndrome (BrS) is characterized by J-point or ST-segment elevation on electrocardiograms (ECGs) and increased risk of ventricular fibrillation (VF). In BrS, epicardial depolarization abnormality with delayed potential on the right ventricular outflow tract is reportedly the predominant mechanism underlying VF. Yet VF occurrence is also associated with early repolarization (ER) pattern in the inferolateral ECG leads, which may represent the inferior and/or left lateral ventricular myocardium. The aim of this study was to examine epicardial electrograms recorded directly at the left ventricle (LV) in BrS patients after VF episodes. Methods: In 12 BrS patients who had experienced VF episodes and 17 control subjects, a multipolar catheter was introduced into the left lateral coronary vein for unipolar and bipolar electrogram recordings at the LV epicardium. Both inferior and lateral ER patterns on ECG were observed in three BrS patients and six control subjects. Results: In the epicardium, prominent J waves were detected using unipolar recording, and potentials after the QRS complex were detected using bipolar recording in three of the 12 BrS patients. These three patients also showed both inferior and lateral ER patterns on ECG. Neither prominent J waves nor potentials after the QRS complex were recorded at the endocardium of the LV in any of these three patients; nor were they seen at the epicardium in any of the control subjects. These features were accentuated on pilsicainide administration (n = 2) but diminished on constant atrial pacing (n = 3) and isoproterenol administration (n = 1). The J waves observed through unipolar recording coincided with the potentials after QRS complex observed through bipolar recording and with the inferolateral ER patterns on ECG. Conclusions: We recorded prominent J waves in unipolar electrogram and potentials after QRS complex in bipolar electrogram at the LV epicardium in BrS patients with global ER pattern. The prominent J waves coincided with the potentials after QRS complex and the inferolateral ER pattern on ECG. The characteristics of the inferolateral ER pattern on ECG in these patients primarily represent depolarization feature.

    BACKGROUND: Clinical and experimental studies have shown the existence of an arrhythmogenic substrate in the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) in patients with Brugada syndrome (BrS). To evaluate the importance of the RVOT, we evaluated the activation pattern of induced ventricular tachyarrhythmias using body surface mapping (BSM) in patients with BrS. METHODS AND RESULTS: We examined 14 patients with BrS in whom ventricular tachyarrhythmias were induced by programmed electrical stimulation. The 87-lead BSM was recorded during induced ventricular tachyarrhythmias, and an activation map and an isopotential map of QRS complexes every 5 ms were constructed to evaluate the activation pattern of ventricular tachyarrhythmias. BSM during 20 episodes of ventricular tachyarrhythmias induced at the RVOT showed that repetitive excitation was generated at the RVOT and propagated to the inferior RV and left ventricle, and then returned to the RVOT. Polymorphic QRS change during ventricular tachyarrhythmias was associated with migration of the earliest activation site and rotor. BSM during 4 episodes of ventricular fibrillation (VF) showed that the excitation front moved randomly with formation of multiple wavefronts. CONCLUSIONS: Programmed stimulation initiated repetitive firing from the RVOT. Migration and competition of the earliest activation site and rotor and local conduction delay changed the QRS morphology. Degeneration of the reentrant circuit into multiple wavefronts resulted in VF. (Circ J 2016; 80: 1734-1743).

    BACKGROUND: In Brugada syndrome (BrS), spontaneous type 1 electrocardiogram (ECG) is an established risk marker for fatal arrhythmias whereas drug-induced type 1 ECG shows a relatively benign prognosis. No study has analyzed the prognosis of fever-induced type 1 ECG (F-type1) in a large BrS cohort. OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this study were to assess the prognosis of F-type1 in asymptomatic BrS and to compare the effects of fever and drugs on ECG parameters. METHODS: One hundred twelve patients with BrS who developed F-type1 were retrospectively enrolled. Prognosis was evaluated in 88 asymptomatic patients. In a subgroup (n = 52), ECG parameters of multiple ECGs (at baseline, during fever, and after drug challenge) were analyzed. RESULTS: Eighty-eight asymptomatic patients had a mean age of 45.8 ± 18.7 years, and 71.6% (67 of 88) were men. Twenty-one percent (18 of 88) had a family history of sudden cardiac death, and 26.4% (14 of 53) carried a pathogenic SCN5A mutation. Drug challenge was positive in 29 of 36 patients tested (80.6%). The risk of ventricular fibrillation in asymptomatic patients was 0.9%/y (3 of 88; 43.6 ± 37.4 months). ST-segment elevation in lead V2 during fever and after drug challenge was not significantly different (0.41 ± 0.21 ms during fever and 0.40 ± 0.30 ms after drug challenge; P > .05). Fever shortened the PR interval compared to baseline, whereas drug challenge resulted in prolonged PR interval and QRS duration (PR interval: 169 ± 29 ms at baseline, 148 ± 45 ms during fever, and 202 ± 35 ms after drug challenge; QRS duration: 97 ± 18 ms at baseline, 92 ± 28 ms during fever, and 117 ± 21 ms after drug challenge). CONCLUSION: Patients with BrS who develop F-type1 are at risk of arrhythmic events. F-type1 appears to develop through a more complex mechanism as compared with drug-induced type 1 ECG.

    BACKGROUND: Brugada syndrome (BrS)-type electrocardiogram (ECG) is concealed by complete right bundle-branch block (CRBBB) in some cases of BrS. Clinical significance of BrS masked by CRBBB is not well known. METHODS AND RESULTS: We reviewed an ECG database of 326 BrS patients who had type 1 ECG with or without pilsicainide. "BrS masked by CRBBB" was defined on ECG as <2-mm elevation of the J point at the time of CRBBB in the right precordial leads, and BrS-type J-point elevation ≥2 mm at the time of normalized QRS complex on relieved CRBBB. We identified 25 BrS patients (7.7%) with persistent (n=12) or intermittent CRBBB (n=13). Relief of CRBBB by pacing was performed in patients with persistent CRBBB. The prevalence of BrS masked by CRBBB was 3.1% (10/326 patients). Three patients had type 1 ECG, and 7 patients had type 2 or 3 ECG on relief of CRBBB. Two of these 10 patients had lethal arrhythmic events during the follow-up period (mean, 86.4±57.2 months). There was no prognostic difference between BrS masked by CRBBB and other BrS. CONCLUSIONS: In a small BrS population, CRBBB can completely mask typical BrS-type ECG. BrS masked by CRBBB is associated with the same risk of fatal ventricular tachyarrhythmia as other BrS.

    BACKGROUND: Risk stratification in patients with Brugada syndrome for primary prevention of sudden cardiac death is still an unsettled issue. A recent consensus statement suggested the indication of implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) depending on the clinical risk factors present (spontaneous type 1 Brugada electrocardiogram (ECG) [Sp1], history of syncope [syncope], and ventricular fibrillation during programmed electrical stimulation [PES+]). The indication of ICD for the majority of patients, however, remains unclear. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 218 consecutive patients (211 male; aged 46 ± 13 years) with a type 1 Brugada ECG without a history of cardiac arrest who underwent evaluation for ICD including electrophysiological testing were examined retrospectively. During a mean follow-up period of 78 months, 26 patients (12%) developed arrhythmic events. On Kaplan-Meier analysis patients with each of Sp1, syncope, or PES+ suffered arrhythmic events more frequently (P=0.018, P<0.001, and P=0.003, respectively). On multivariate analysis Sp1 and syncope were independent predictors of arrhythmic events. When dividing patients according to the number of these 3 risk factors present, patients with 2 or 3 risk factors experienced arrhythmic events more frequently than those with 0 or 1 risk factor (23/93 vs. 3/125; P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Syncope, Sp1, and PES+ are important risk factors and the combination of these risks well stratify the risk of later arrhythmic events.

    OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to determine the usefulness of the combination of several electrocardiographic markers on risk assessment of ventricular fibrillation (VF) in patients with Brugada syndrome (BrS). BACKGROUND: Detection of high-/low-risk BrS patients using a noninvasive method is an important issue in the clinical setting. Several electrocardiographic markers related to depolarization and repolarization abnormalities have been reported, but the relationship and usefulness of these parameters in VF events are unclear. METHODS: Baseline characteristics of 246 consecutive patients (236 men; mean age, 47.6 ± 13.6 years) with a Brugada-type electrocardiogram, including 13 patients with a history of VF and 40 patients with a history of syncope episodes, were retrospectively analyzed. During the mean follow-up period of 45.1 months, VF in 23 patients and sudden cardiac death (SCD) in 1 patient were observed. Clinical/genetic and electrocardiographic parameters were compared with VF/SCD events. RESULTS: On univariate analysis, a history of VF and syncope episodes, paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, spontaneous type 1 pattern in the precordial leads, and electrocardiographic markers of depolarization abnormalities (QRS duration ≥120 ms, and fragmented QRS [f-QRS]) and those of repolarization abnormalities (inferolateral early repolarization [ER] pattern and QT prolongation) were associated with later cardiac events. On multivariable analysis, a history of VF and syncope episodes, inferolateral ER pattern, and f-QRS were independent predictors of documented VF and SCD (odds ratios: 19.61, 28.57, 2.87, and 5.21, respectively; p < 0.05). Kaplan-Meier curves showed that the presence/absence of inferolateral ER and f-QRS predicted a worse/better prognosis (log-rank test, p < 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: The combination of depolarization and repolarization abnormalities in BrS is associated with later VF events. The combination of these abnormalities is useful for detecting high- and low-risk BrS patients.

    BACKGROUND: Little is known about the clinical and prognostic impact of early repolarization (ER) on patients with Brugada syndrome (BrS), especially those with documented ventricular fibrillation (VF). OBJECTIVE: To investigate the prevalence and prognostic significance of ER in inferolateral leads in patients with BrS and documented VF. METHODS: We investigated 10 different 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs) recorded on different days to identify the presence of ER, which was defined as J-point elevation ≥0.1 mV in inferior (II, III, aVF) or lateral leads (I, aVL, V₄-V₆), in 49 individuals (46 men; age 46 ± 13 years) with a type 1 ECG of BrS and previous history of VF. RESULTS: ER was observed persistently (in all ECGs) in 15 patients (31%; P group), intermittently (in at least one but not in all ECGs) in 16 patients (33%; I group), and not observed in 18 patients (37%; N group), yielding an overall ER incidence of 63% (31/49). During the follow-up period (7.7 years), recurrence of VF was documented in all 15 patients (100%) in the P group, and less in 12 patients (75%) in the I group and in 8 patients (44%) in the N group. The P group showed a worse prognosis than N group (P = .0001) by Kaplan-Meier analysis. Either persistent or intermittent ER in an inferolateral lead was an independent predictor of fatal arrhythmic events (hazard ratio 4.88, 95% confidence interval 2.02-12.7, P = .0004; and hazard ratio 2.50, 95% confidence interval 1.03-6.43, P = .043, respectively). CONCLUSION: The prevalence of ER in inferolateral leads was high and an especially persistent form of ER was associated with a worse outcome in BrS patients with documented VF.

    Background: Postprandial hyperlipidemia impairs endothelial function and participates in the development of atherosclerosis. We investigated the postprandial effects of a dipeptidyl peptidase IV inhibitor, alogliptin, on endothelial dysfunction and the lipid profile.
    Methods: A randomized cross-over trial design in 10 healthy volunteers (8 males and 2 females, 35 +/- 10 years) was performed. The postprandial effects before and after a 1-week treatment of 25 mg/day alogliptin on endothelial function were assessed with brachial artery flow-mediated dilation (FMD) and changing levels of lipids, apolipoprotein B48 (apoB-48), glucose, glucagon, insulin, and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) during fasting and at 2, 4, 6, and 8 h after a standard meal loading test.
    Results: Alogliptin treatment significantly suppressed the postprandial elevation in serum triglyceride (incremental area under the curve [AUC]; 279 +/- 31 vs. 182 +/- 32 mg h/dl, p = 0.01), apoB-48 (incremental AUC; 15.4 +/- 1.7 vs. 11.7 +/- 1.1 mu g h/ml, p = 0.04), and remnant lipoprotein cholesterol (RLP-C) (incremental AUC: 29.3 +/- 3.2 vs. 17.6 +/- 3.3 mg h/dl, p = 0.01). GLP-1 secretion was significantly increased after alogliptin treatment. Postprandial endothelial dysfunction (maximum decrease in% FMD, from -4.2 +/- 0.5% to -2.6 +/- 0.4%, p = 0.03) was significantly associated with the maximum change in apoB-48 (r = -0.46, p = 0.03) and RLP-C (r = -0.45, p = 0.04).
    Conclusion: Alogliptin significantly improved postprandial endothelial dysfunction and postprandial lipemia, suggesting that alogliptin may be a promising anti-atherogenic agent.

    BACKGROUND: Left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy is often present in patients with diastolic heart failure. However, stiffness of hypertrophied cardiomyocytes in the transverse direction has not been fully elucidated. The aim of this study was to assess passive cardiomyocyte stiffness of hypertrophied hearts in the transverse direction and the influence of actin-myosin cross-bridge formation on the stiffness. METHODS AND RESULTS: Wistar rats received a vehicle (control) or isoproterenol (ISO) subcutaneously. After 7 days, compared with the controls, ISO administration had significantly increased heart weight and LV wall thickness and had decreased peak early annular relaxation velocity (e') assessed by echocardiography. Elastic modulus of living cardiomyocytes in the transverse direction assessed by an atomic force microscope was significantly higher in the ISO group than in controls. We added butanedione monoxime (BDM), an inhibitor of actin-myosin interaction, and blebbistatin, a specific myosin II inhibitor, to the medium. BDM and blebbistatin significantly reduced the elastic modulus of cardiomyocytes in the ISO group. X-ray diffraction analysis showed that the reflection intensity ratio (I((1,0))/I((1,1))) at diastole was not different before and after treatment with BDM, which induces complete relaxation, in control hearts, but that I((1,0))/I((1,1)) was significantly increased after BDM treatment in the ISO group, indicating residual cross-bridge formation in hypertrophied hearts. CONCLUSIONS: Passive cardiomyocyte stiffness in the transverse direction is increased in hearts with ISO-induced hypertrophy and this is caused by residual actin-myosin cross-bridge formation.

    BACKGROUND: We investigated the acute effects of implantable cardioverter-defibrillator shock on myocardium, cardiac function, and hemodynamics in relation to left ventricular systolic function. METHODS AND RESULTS: We studied 50 patients who underwent implantable cardioverter-defibrillator implantation and defibrillation threshold (DFT) testing: 25 patients with left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) ≥ 45% and 25 patients with LVEF <45%. We measured cardiac biomarkers (creatine kinase, creatine kinase-MB, myoglobin, cardiac troponin T and I, and N-terminal probrain natriuretic peptide). Left ventricular relaxation was assessed by global longitudinal strain rate during the isovolumetric relaxation period using speckle-tracking echocardiography. Blood sampling and echocardiography were performed before, immediately after, and 5 minutes and 4 hours after DFT testing. Mean arterial pressure was measured directly during DFT testing. Cardiac biomarkers showed no significant changes in either group. LVEF was decreased until 5 minutes after DFT testing and had recovered to the baseline at 4 hours in the group with reduced LVEF (P<0.001), whereas LVEF reduction was not observed in the group with preserved LVEF (P=0.637). Global isovolumetric relaxation period was decreased until 5 minutes after DFT testing and had recovered to the baseline at 4 hours in both groups (preserved LVEF: 0.39 ± 0.14 versus 0.23 ± 0.13* versus 0.23 ± 0.13* versus 0.40 ± 0.13 s(-1), *P<0.001 versus baseline; reduced LVEF: 0.15 ± 0.05 versus 0.08 ± 0.04† versus 0.09 ± 0.04† versus 0.15 ± 0.05 s(-1), †P<0.001 versus baseline, repeated-measures ANOVA). Time to recovery of mean arterial pressure to the baseline was prolonged in the group with reduced LVEF (P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator shock transiently impairs cardiac function and hemodynamics especially in patients with systolic dysfunction, although significant tissue injury is not observed.

    Fragmented QRS (fQRS) is a convenient marker of myocardial scar evaluated by 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) recording. fQRS is defined as additional spikes within the QRS complex. In patients with CAD, fQRS was associated with myocardial scar detected by single photon emission tomography and was a predictor of cardiac events. fQRS was also a predictor of mortality and arrhythmic events in patients with reduced left ventricular function. The usefulness of fQRS for detecting myocardial scar and for identifying high-risk patients has been expanded to various cardiac diseases, such as cardiac sarcoidosis, arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy, acute coronary syndrome, Brugada syndrome, and acquired long QT syndrome. fQRS can be applied to patients with wide QRS complexes and is associated with myocardial scar and prognosis. Myocardial scar detected by fQRS is associated with subsequent ventricular dysfunction and heart failure and is a substrate for reentrant ventricular tachyarrhythmias.

    BACKGROUND: Remodeling of the pulmonary artery by an inappropriate increase of pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells (PASMCs) is problematic in the treatment of idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (IPAH). Effective treatment that achieves reverse remodeling is required. The aim of this study was to assess the pro-apoptotic effects of imatinib, a platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor, on PASMCs obtained from patients with IPAH. METHODS: PASMCs were obtained from 8 patients with IPAH undergoing lung transplantation. Cellular proliferation was assessed by (3)H-thymidine incorporation. Pro-apoptotic effects of imatinib were examined using TUNEL and caspase-3,7 assays and using transmission electron microscopy. RESULTS: Treatment with imatinib (0.1 to 10 μg/mL) significantly inhibited PDGF-BB (10 ng/mL)-induced proliferation of PASMCs from IPAH patients. Imatinib (1 μg/mL) did not induce apoptosis in quiescent IPAH-PASMCs, but it had a pro-apoptotic effect on IPAH-PASMCs stimulated with PDGF-BB. Imatinib did not induce apoptosis in normal control PASMCs with or without PDGF-BB stimulation. PDGF-BB induced phosphorylation of Akt at 15 min, and Akt phosphorylation was inhibited by imatinib in IPAH-PASMCs. Akt-I-1/2 (1 μmol/L), an Akt inhibitor, in the presence of PDGF-BB significantly increased apoptotic cells compared with the control condition. Thus, Akt-I-1/2 could mimic the effects of imatinib on PASMCs. CONCLUSION: Imatinib has anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic effects on IPAH-PASMCs stimulated with PDGF. The inhibitory effect of imatinib on Akt phosphorylation induced by PDGF plays an important role in the pro-apoptotic effect.

    BACKGROUND: Syncope in patients with Brugada syndrome is usually associated with ventricular tachyarrhythmia, but some episodes of syncope can be related to autonomic disorders. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the characteristics of syncope to differentiate high-risk syncope episodes from low-risk events in patients with Brugada syndrome. METHODS: We studied 84 patients with type 1 electrocardiogram and syncope. Patients were divided into 2 groups: patients with prodrome (prodromal group; n = 41) and patients without prodrome (nonprodromal group; n = 43). RESULTS: Ventricular fibrillation (VF) was documented at index event in 19 patients: 4 patients (21%) with documented VF experienced a prodrome prior to the onset of VF, whereas 15 patients (79%) did not have symptoms prior to documented VF (P <.01). Twenty-seven patients in the prodromal group and 7 patients in the nonprodromal group were considered to have syncope related to autonomic dysfunction. Syncope in other patients was defined as unexplained syncope. During the follow-up period (48 ± 48 months), recurrent syncope due to VF occurred in 13 patients among patients with only unexplained syncope and was more frequent in the nonprodromal group (n = 10) than in the prodromal group (n = 3; P = .044). In multivariate analysis, blurred vision (hazard ratio [HR] 0.20) and abnormal respiration (HR 2.18) and fragmented QRS (HR 2.39) were independently associated with the occurrence of VF. CONCLUSION: Syncope with prodrome, especially blurred vision, suggests a benign etiology of syncope in patients with Brugada syndrome.

    Acute vasoreactivity testing for patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) has been reported to be useful to identify patients with sustained beneficial response to oral calcium-channel blockers (CCBs), but there is a risk of exacerbation during the testing with oral CCBs. Therefore, we developed a testing method utilizing intravenous nicardipine, a short-acting CCB, and examined the safety and usefulness of acute vasoreactivity testing with nicardipine in PAH patients. Acute vasoreactivity testing with nicardipine was performed in 65 PAH patients. Nicardipine was administered by short-time continuous infusion (1 μg·kg⁻¹·min⁻¹ for 5 min and 2 μg·kg⁻¹·min⁻¹ for 5 min) followed by bolus injection (5 μg/kg). Hemodynamic responses were continuously measured using a right heart catheter. Acute responders were defined as patients who showed a decrease in mean pulmonary artery pressure of at least 10 mmHg to an absolute level below 40 mmHg with preserved or increased cardiac output. Two acute responders and sixty-three non-acute responders were identified. There was no hemodynamic instability requiring additional inotropic agents or death during the testing. Acute responders had good responses to long-term oral CCBs. The acute vasoreactivity testing with nicardipine might be safe and useful for identifying CCB responders in PAH patients.

    Intermittent arm ischemia before percutaneous coronary intervention induces remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) and attenuates myocardial injury in patients with myocardial infarction. Several studies have shown that intermittent arm ischemia increases coronary flow and is related to autonomic nerve system. The aim of this study was to determine whether intermittent arm ischemia induces vasodilatation of other arteries and to assess changes in the autonomic nerve system during intermittent arm ischemia in humans. We measured change in the right brachial artery diameter during intermittent left arm ischemia through three cycles of 5-min inflation (200 mmHg) and 5-min deflation of a blood-pressure cuff using a 10-MHz linear array transducer probe in 20 healthy volunteers. We simultaneously performed power spectral analysis of heart rate. Ischemia-reperfusion of the left arm significantly dilated the right brachial artery time-dependently, resulting in a 3.2 ± 0.4% increase after the 3rd cycle. In the power spectral analysis of heart rate, the high-frequency domain (HF), which is a marker of parasympathetic activity, was significantly higher after the 3rd cycle of ischemia-reperfusion than baseline HF (P = 0.02). Intermittent arm ischemia was accompanied by vasodilatation of another artery and enhancement of parasympathetic activity. Those effects may play an important role in the mechanism of RIPC.

    Oxidative stress has been implicated in the pathogenesis of heart failure. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are produced in the failing myocardium, and ROS cause hypertrophy, apoptosis/cell death and intracellular Ca(2+) overload in cardiac myocytes. ROS also cause damage to lipid cell membranes in the process of lipid peroxidation. In this process, several aldehydes, including 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal (HNE), are generated and the amount of HNE is increased in the human failing myocardium. HNE exacerbates the formation of ROS, especially H₂O₂ and ·OH, in cardiomyocytes and subsequently ROS cause intracellular Ca(2+) overload. Treatment with beta-blockers such as metoprolol, carvedilol and bisoprolol reduces the levels of oxidative stress, together with amelioration of heart failure. This reduction could be caused by several possible mechanisms. First, the beta-blocking effect is important, because catecholamines such as isoproterenol and norepinephrine induce oxidative stress in the myocardium. Second, anti-ischemic effects and negative chronotropic effects are also important. Furthermore, direct antioxidative effects of carvedilol contribute to the reduction of oxidative stress. Carvedilol inhibited HNE-induced intracellular Ca(2+) overload. Beta-blocker therapy is a useful antioxidative therapy in patients with heart failure.

    Objective: Postprandial hyperlipemia has been shown to impair endothelial function and contribute to the development of atherosclerosis. We investigated the association between postprandial lipid profiles and endothelial function, and we examined the effects of ezetimibe on postprandial hyperlipemia and lipemia-induced endothelial dysfunction.
    Methods: A randomized prospective trial in which 10 mg/day of ezetimibe was administered to 10 subjects for 4 weeks and not administered to 10 subjects (control group) was performed. Lipid profiles and endothelial function, assessed by brachial artery flow-mediated dilation (FMD) during a fasting state and at 2, 4, 6 and 8 h after an oral cookie loading test, were determined before and after treatment for 4 weeks.
    Results: In all subjects before treatment, the maximum reduction in postprandial % FMD was significantly correlated with the maximum increases in postprandial triglyceride (TG) (r = -0.499, P &lt; 0.05) and apolipoprotein B-48 (apoB-48) concentrations (r = -0.551, P &lt; 0.05). Ezetimibe treatment for 4 weeks significantly suppressed postprandial elevation in TG (area under the incremental curve, from 1419 +/- 594 to 968 +/- 321 mg h/dl, P &lt; 0.05), remnant lipoprotein cholesterol (from 66.9 +/- 27.6 to 38.9 +/- 15.4 mg h/dl, P &lt; 0.01) and apoB-48 (from 58.8 +/- 27.5 to 36.2 +/- 17.0 mu gh/ml, P &lt; 0.05) concentrations, and postprandial endothelial dysfunction assessed by % FMD (maximum reduction in % FMD, from -2.6 +/- 1.1% to -1.2 +/- 0.8%, P &lt; 0.05), whereas no significant changes were observed in the control group.
    Conclusion: Postprandial hyperlipemia is closely correlated with transient endothelial dysfunction. Ezetimibe improves postprandial hyperlipemia and its induced endothelial dysfunction. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Despite the use of statin therapy and achieving the target for low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, a substantial number of coronary events are not prevented, and residual risk factors remain unsettled. Recently, ezetimibe has been shown to reduce not only low-density lipoprotein cholesterol but also triglyceride (TG) levels. The aim of this study was to investigate the associations of residual risk factors, mainly hypertriglyceridemia, with endothelial function during statin therapy in patients with coronary heart disease and examine the effect of ezetimibe add-on therapy. A total of 109 consecutive patients with coronary heart disease during statin therapy were enrolled. Lipid profile was measured and endothelial function was assessed by flow-mediated dilation (FMD) of the brachial artery in a fasting state. Next, 32 patients with high TG levels (&gt;= 150 mg/dl) were prospectively assigned to the ezetimibe add-on group or the no-ezetimibe group, and endothelial function was assessed after 3 months. Multivariate linear regression analysis demonstrated that serum TG and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels were independent determinants of percentage FMD (beta = -0.210 and 0.208, respectively, p &lt;0.05). In patients with high TG levels, ezetimibe add-on therapy significantly improved percentage FMD (from 3.3 +/- 1.1% to 4.0 +/- 1.1%, p &lt;0.005), whereas no significant change was observed in the no-ezetimibe group. Moreover, the improvement in percentage FMD was significantly associated with reduction in serum TG levels (beta = -0.387, p &lt;0.05) independent of the change in serum low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels. In conclusion, hypertriglyceridemia is independently associated with endothelial dysfunction in patients with coronary heart disease during statin therapy. Ezetimibe add-on therapy improves endothelial function in these high-risk populations. (C) 2011 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. (Am J Cardiol 2011;108:333-339)

    BACKGROUND: Patients with Brugada syndrome (BS) often have spontaneous changes in their electrocardiogram (ECG). OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the significance of ECG alterations, we investigated the relationships between the ECG and the occurrence of ventricular fibrillation (VF) in both patients and an experimental model of BS. METHODS: In study 1, we evaluated ECG alterations in BS patients with (VF+, n = 33) and without (VF-, n = 41) spontaneous VF. We defined type 0 ECG as coved-type ST elevation without a negative T wave, which represents the existence of loss-of-dome (LOD) type action potentials (APs). In study 2, we optically mapped epicardial APs and recorded transmural ECGs in 34 canine right ventricular tissues with a drug-induced BS model by a combination of pinacidil and pilsicainide. RESULTS: In study 1, changes in ST level ≥0.2 mV were more frequent in the VF+ group than in the VF- group (P <.01). Spontaneous ECG alterations and appearances of types 1 and 0 ECGs were more frequent in the VF+ group than in the VF- group (P <.01). In study 2, BS model with spike-and-dome (SAD) epicardial APs exhibited type 1 ECG. Deepening of the phase 1 notch of the APs induced heterogeneous conversion of the APs (SAD→LOD) and resulted in ECG conversion from type 1 to type 0. Significant AP heterogeneity often appeared during AP alterations and initiated phase 2 reentry. Tissues having ventricular tachycardia (VT; n = 20) had more frequent alterations in APs and ECG than in tissues without VT (n = 14; P <.01). CONCLUSION: ECG alterations, especially conversion between types 0 and 1, are associated with significant AP heterogeneity that can initiate VF in BS.

    Introduction: Gadlinium-enhanced Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is a useful diagnostic tool for evaluating myocardial abnormality. However, the prevalence of delyed Gadlinium enhancement (DGE) in CMR has not been yet reported in patients with Brugada syndrome (BrS). Methods and Results: Seventy consecutive patients with BrS who underwent Gadlinium-enhanced CMR were evaluated in this study. DGE was found in five patients (7.1%). All patients with DGE were symptomatic. Early repolarization (ER) in inferolateral leads was significantly highly detected in patients with DGE than without DGE (80.0% vs 16.9%, P<0.01). Late potentials examined with SAECG were present in all patients with DGE and in 42 of 65 patients without DGE (64.6%). The value of RMS40 evaluated with SAECG was significantly smaller in patients with DGE than in patients without DGE (p<0.0001). In electrophysiologic study, VF was induced with programmed ventricular stimulation in four of five patients with DGE (80.0%) and in 21 of 41 patients without DGE (51.2%). Mutation analysis revealed that DGE was present in one patient with SCN5A mutation and in 2 patients without SCN5A mutation. Conclusions: Depolarization abnormality is prominent in BrS patients with DGE. CMR with DGE might be a useful tool for evaluating high risk patient with BrS.

    BACKGROUND: It is estimated that approximately half of the deaths in patients with HF are sudden and that the most likely causes of sudden death are lethal ventricular tachyarrhythmias such as ventricular tachycardia (VT) or fibrillation (VF). However, the precise mechanism of ventricular tachyarrhythmias remains unknown. The KCNH2 channel conducting the delayed rectifier K(+) current (I(Kr)) is recognized as the most susceptible channel in acquired long QT syndrome. Recent findings have revealed that not only suppression but also enhancement of I(Kr) increase vulnerability to major arrhythmic events, as seen in short QT syndrome. Therefore, we investigated the existence of a circulating KCNH2 current-modifying factor in patients with HF. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: We examined the effects of serum of HF patients on recombinant I(Kr) recorded from HEK 293 cells stably expressing KCNH2 by using the whole-cell patch-clamp technique. Study subjects were 14 patients with non-ischemic HF and 6 normal controls. Seven patients had a history of documented ventricular tachyarrhythmias (VT: 7 and VF: 1). Overnight treatment with 2% serum obtained from HF patients with ventricular arrhythmia resulted in a significant enhancement in the peaks of I(Kr) tail currents compared to the serum from normal controls and HF patients without ventricular arrhythmia. CONCLUSIONS/SIGNIFICANCE: Here we provide the first evidence for the presence of a circulating KCNH2 channel activator in patients with HF and ventricular tachyarrhythmias. This factor may be responsible for arhythmogenesis in patients with HF.

In Brugada syndrome(BrS), Ventricular fibrillation(VF) frequently occurs at nighttime and pronounced vagal activity. Purpose: We examine relationship between LPs and Heart rate, Vagal activity, and circadian variation of LPs in BrS. Methods: We evaluated 24hours HolterECGs of total 14 BrS and 10 normal controls. We evaluated LPs (fQRS,LAS40,RMS40), RR interval and High frequency (HF:0.15-0.4Hz) of frequency domaine analysis. We examined relationship between LPs and RRinterval, LnHF. Results: Relationship between LAS40 and RRinterval, relationship between LAS40 and LnHF were obtained as a liner regression line and significant positive correlation inBrS. LAS40/RRslope was significantly sharpened in BrSwithVF than BrSwithout VF, Controls (24 ±11 vs 3±13 vs -4±20, p<0.01, BrSwithVF vs BrSwithoutVF vs Controls). LAS40 at bradycardia was significantly pronounced in BrS withVF than BrS withoutVF, Controls (48±3 vs 32±12 vs 22±11, p<0.01, BrS withVF vs BrS withoutVF vs Controls). LAS40/LnHFslope were significantly sharpened than Controls.(3.0±3.2 vs -0.4±3.0, p<0.05, BrS vs Controls). Conclusion: In BrS, LPs were pronounced at bradycardia and night time and at pronounced vagal acitivity. Pronounced LPs at bradycardia and nighttime, at pronounced vagalacitivity may be a risk marker of VF inBrS. © 2011, Japanese Heart Rhythm Society. All rights reserved.

    Objectives: The purpose of this study was to determine whether J wave is a marker of arrhythmic risk in patients with vasospastic angina (VSA). Background: Both VSA and the presence of J waves in ECG are associated with fatal ventricular arrhythmias and sudden death. However, the prevalence of J waves among VSA patients is little known. Methods: We reviewed 66 patients with VSA in our hospital retrospectively and assessed the association between the presence of J wave and clinical backgrounds among them. J wave was defined as an elevation of the QRS-ST junction of > 0.1mV from baseline. Results: Spontaneous VF and syncope occurred in 9 (13.6%) and 14 (21.2%) of all patients, respectively. J waves were observed in 33 patients (50%) and were significantly more prevalent in males than females (60.4% vs. 16.7%, Pμ0.01). Arrhythmic symptoms (ventricular arrhythmias or syncope) were observed frequently in patients with J waves, compared to without J wave (48.4% vs. 23.8%, Pμ0.05). Both of the locations and height of J waves were not associated with the history of arrhythmic symptoms. Conclusions: J waves are observed frequently among male patients with VSA. The presence of J waves potentially influence the development of lethal ventricular arrhythmias associated with VSA. © 2011, Japanese Heart Rhythm Society. All rights reserved.

    Background: Inferolateral early repolarization (ER) pattern is often observed in Brugada syndrome (BrS). However, its clinical implication in this syndrome is still controversial. Method: Total two-hundred forty five Brugada ECG patients (mean age 48 years, men/female=235/10), including documented ventricular fibrillation (VF) in 27, were evaluated. Infero/lateral ER pattern was defined as a notched or slurring>1mm J-wave at least consecutive two of inferior (II, III, aVF) or lateral (I, aVL, V4, V5, V6) leads. The presence of this ER pattern was compared with clinical, electrocardiographic and genetic parameters. Results: Infero/lateral ER pattern was observed in 25 (10.2%) BrS patients (inferior leads in 12, lateral leads in 11 and both in 2) and was significantly associated with patients of documented VF (P<0.01) and with prolonged PQ interval (P<0.04). However they were not associated with the frequency of spontaneous type-1 ECG, wide QRS complex (>120ms), family history of sudden death, positive late potential on signal averaged ECG and SCN5A mutation. Increased number of positive ER leads have a trend of increasing documented VF patients (>3 leads; 54%). Conclusion: These data indicates that infero/lateral ER reflects the expansion of repolarization abnormality in the ventricle and may be associated with high-risk phenotype in BrS. © 2011, Japanese Heart Rhythm Society.

    Introduction: Japanese guideline of the Brugada syndrome (BS) defined the indication of the implantable cardioverter defibrillater (ICD) in asymptomatic patients with BS as patients having both family history of sudden death (FH) and induced ventricular fibrillation (VF) by programmed electrical stimulation (PES) (class IIa). When patients had one of these criteria, ICD indication considered as class IIb. We analyzed new onset of VF episodes in asymptomatic patients. Methods and Results: We analyzed 99 asymptomatic patients with Brugada type ECG. Fourty-seven patients had FH. VF was induced by PES in 44 patients. Criteria of ICD indication of class IIa, IIb, and III were met in 20, 50, and 29 patients, respectively. Three patients experienced new-onset VF episode during follow-up periods (84±43 months). Although there was no new-onset VF in patients with class IIa, all patients who experienced VF episodes belonged to class IIb (6%). All patients with new-VF had spontaneous type 1 ECG, induced VF by PES, positive late potential and fragmented QRS, but did not have FH and SCN5A mutation. Conclusion: Prediction of prognosis in patients with BS-ECG based on BS-guideline has limited value and occurrence of VF is not rare in patients with class IIb of ICD indication. © 2011, Japanese Heart Rhythm Society.

    BACKGROUND: Acquired long QT syndrome (LQTS) is a disease due to a secondary repolarization abnormality induced by various predisposing factors. In contrast to congenital LQTS, risk factors that produce acquired LQTS include organic heart diseases that often exhibit depolarization abnormality. Although various repolarization parameters have been evaluated in acquired LQTS, the existence of depolarization abnormality in association with torsades de pointes (TdP) has not been reported. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate both repolarization (QT components) and depolarization parameters (fragmented QRS [fQRS]) in acquired LQTS patients with markedly prolonged QT interval. METHODS: Seventy patients with acquired severe QT prolongation (QTc ≥ 550 ms) were studied. Thirty-two patients had syncope or TdP (syncope group). Thirty-eight patients did not have any symptoms (asymptomatic group). The existence of fQRS and QT components (QT, QTc, Tpe [interval between peak and end of T wave] intervals, and U-wave voltage) was analyzed. RESULTS: The syncope group had more frequent fQRS (81%) than did the asymptomatic group (21%, P < .01) and the incidence of fQRS was not different before and after removal of predisposing factors. The incidence of organic heart disease was not different between the two groups. No differences in QTc interval were noted between the syncope and asymptomatic groups, although the syncope group had longer QT and Tpe intervals and higher U wave than the asymptomatic group (P < .01). CONCLUSION: Acquired predisposing factors promoted repolarization abnormality (especially prolongation of QT and Tpe intervals), and the existence of fQRS had an important role in the development of TdP in patients with acquired LQTS.

    A 45-year-old man with dilated cardiomyopathy was admitted to our hospital due to congestive heart failure (CHF). Despite the optimal medical treatment, his condition had not improved because of severe left ventricular dysfunction. Because he experienced non-sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT), a biventricular implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (Bi-V ICD) was implanted for reduction of dyssynchrony and primary prevention of lethal tachyarrhythmia. After discharge, he developed CHF and was transported to our hospital by ambulance. In the ambulance, monomorphic sustained VT with 200 bpm suddenly occurred. The ICD detected it as fast VT and anti-tachycardia pacing (ATP) was delivered. After the ATP therapy, RR intervals of VT became irregular and prolonged. Ventricular fibrillation-like electrical activity was recorded by a far-field electrogram from the defibrillator, but the tachycardia cycle length exceeded 400 ms which is under the tachycardia detection rate. The device failed to deliver a shock and the patient had to be rescued with an external shock. This is a rare case of fast VT that degenerated into undetectable life-threatening tachyarrhythmia by ATP.

    BACKGROUND: Mutations in SCN5A are reportedly linked to Brugada syndrome (BS), but recent observations suggest that they are not necessarily associated with ventricular fibrillation (VF) in BS patients. Therefore, the clinical importance of SCN5A mutations in BS patients was examined in the present study. METHODS AND RESULTS:  The 108 BS patients were examined for SCN5A mutations and various parameters were compared between patients with and without mutations. An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) was implanted in 49 patients and a predictor of appropriate ICD shock was investigated. The existence of a SCN5A mutation was not associated with initial VF episodes (21.7% vs 20.0%, P=0.373). In the secondary prevention group, appropriate shock-free survival rate was significantly lower in patients with spontaneous type 1 ECG than in those without (41.1% vs 85.7% at 2 years, P=0.014). The appropriate shock-free survival rate was also significantly lower in patients with SCN5A mutations than in those without (28.6% vs 83.3% at 1 year, P=0.040). Appropriate shock was more frequent in patients with SCN5A mutations than in those without (6.6±6.2 vs 1.7±3.0, P=0.007). CONCLUSIONS: SCN5A mutations are associated with early and frequent VF recurrence, but not with initial VF episodes. This is the first report on the genotype-phenotype interaction and clinical significance of this mutation.

    It has been reported that bepridil prevents ventricular fibrillation (VF) in patients with Brugada syndrome, but the comparative efficacy with and without mutation in the SCN5A gene has not been elucidated. The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of low-dose bepridil (100 mg/day) for VF prevention in patients with Brugada syndrome with and without SCN5A mutation. Among 130 patients with Brugada-type electrocardiogram (ECG), low-dose bepridil was administered to seven patients because of repetitive VF episodes, including three with and four without SCN5A mutation. Preventive effect for VF recurrence and changes of the ECG and the signal-averaged ECG were evaluated. Frequencies of VF episodes were reduced after treatment with low-dose bepridil in all three patients with the SCN5A mutation (before: 0.33 versus after: 0.02 episodes/month, P < 0.01), but not in all four patients without the SCN5A mutation (before: 0.43 versus after: 2.94 episodes/month, P = nonsignificant). Levels of ST-segment elevation at J points and duration of low-amplitude signals less than 40 µV in the terminal filtered QRS complex (LAS40) in signal-averaged ECG were improved exclusively in patients with the SCN5A mutation. Treatment with bepridil prevented recurrence of VF along with improvement of ST elevation and LAS40 in patients with Brugada syndrome with the SCN5A mutation.

    BACKGROUND: Genetic defects in the sodium channel or in the calcium channel have been identified in patients with Brugada syndrome (BS). However, the differences in their genotype-phenotype correlations are still unclear. OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the phenotypic differences and therapeutic effects between the sodium channel and calcium channel abnormalities in in vitro models of BS. METHODS: We created two models of BS in 18 isolated and arterially perfused canine right ventricular preparations: (1) sodium channel dysfunction model (Na model, n = 11) by pilsicainide and pinacidil and (2) calcium channel dysfunction model (Ca model, n = 7) by verapamil; optically mapped action potentials (APs) on their transmural surface; and evaluated APs and electrocardiograms (ECGs) at pacing cycle lengths (CLs) of 2,000 and 1,000 ms. RESULTS: CL = 1,000 ms: Both models had coved-type ST elevation in the ECG, longer AP duration (APD) in the epicardium than in the endocardium, and a similar incidence of spontaneous ventricular arrhythmias. However, the Ca model had a higher incidence of T wave alternans (TWA) than the Na-model. CL = 2,000 ms: ECGs of the Ca model converted to saddleback-type ST elevation with shorter APDs in the epicardium than in the endocardium, whereas the Na model still had coved-type ST elevation and longer APDs in the epicardium. None of the Ca model preparations had ventricular arrhythmias or TWA, although the Na model had frequent ventricular arrhythmias and TWA. CONCLUSION: Although both sodium channel and calcium channel dysfunction produced similar BS ECGs and arrhythmogenesis at 60 bpm, calcium channel dysfunction was associated with a higher incidence of TWA at 60 bpm, less ST elevation, and fewer arrhythmias at 30 bpm compared with sodium channel dysfunction.

    AIMS: This study sought to examine the action potential duration restitution (APDR) property and conduction delay in Brugada syndrome (BrS) patients. A steeply sloped APDR curve and conduction delay are known to be important determinants for the occurrence of ventricular fibrillation (VF). METHODS AND RESULTS: Endocardial monophasic action potential was obtained from 39 BrS patients and 9 control subjects using the contact electrode method. Maximum slopes of the APDR curve were obtained at both the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) and the right ventricular apex (RVA). The onset of activation delay (OAD) after premature stimulation was examined as a marker of conduction delay. Maximum slope of the APDR curve in BrS patients was significantly steeper than that in control subjects at both the RVOT and the RVA (0.77 +/- 0.21 vs. 058 +/- 0.14 at RVOT, P = 0.009; 0.98 +/- 0.23 vs. 0.62 +/- 0.16 at RVA, P = 0.001). The dispersion of maximum slope of the APDR curve between the RVOT and the RVA was also larger in BrS patients than in control subjects. The OAD was significantly longer in BrS patients than in control subjects from the RVOT to RVA and from the RVA to RVOT (from RVOT to RVA: 256 +/- 12 vs. 243 +/- 7 ms, P = 0.003; from RVA to RVOT: 252 +/- 11 vs. 241 +/- 9 ms, P = 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: Abnormal APDR properties and conduction delay were observed in BrS patients. Both repolarization and depolarization abnormalities are thought to be related to the development of VF in BrS patients.

    BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) often occurs in Brugada syndrome (BrS), and BrS patients with spontaneous AF often experience ventricular fibrillation (VF) attacks. Atrial vulnerability providing a substrate for AF is known to be enhanced in BrS, but there are no data on atrial structural attributes. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to assess atrial electrophysiological and structural characteristics in BrS and their relationships with gene mutations. METHODS: We studied 57 patients with BrS. Intra-atrial conduction time (CT) was defined as the interval from the stimulus at the high right atrium to atrial deflection at the distal portion of the coronary sinus. Left atrial volume index (LAVI) was measured by the modified Simpson method at left ventricular end-systole using echocardiography. SCN5A mutations were analyzed in all patients. RESULTS: In patients with documented VF, spontaneous AF frequently occurred and prolonged CT and increased LAVI were observed compared with those in patients without VF (all P < .05; LAVI: 22 +/- 5 vs. 32 +/- 7 ml/m(2)). Even among patients without AF, CT and LAVI were still increased in patients with VF (all P < .05; LAVI: 22 +/- 5 vs. 29 +/- 5 ml/m(2)). The presence of SCN5A mutation was associated with prolonged CT (P < .05) and increased LAVI (P < .01), but not with arrhythmic episodes. CONCLUSION: Both atrial vulnerability and structural remodeling are enhanced in high-risk patients with BrS, even in those without AF. These morphological characteristics suggest that BrS is a form of genetic myocardial disease.

    Numerous clinical trials have shown that calcium channel blocker (CCB) therapy improves the clinical outcome in patients with cardiovascular diseases. Since the progression of several types of cardiovascular diseases is closely associated with inflammation, alleviation of inflammation may be one potential mechanism of those beneficial effects of CCB therapy. We examined whether a new CCB (azelnidipine) could influence the inflammatory response of human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs), which are recruited to inflammatory lesions and modulate inflammation. We investigated whether azelnidipine affected intracellular signaling and cytokine production by phytohemagglutinin (PHA)-stimulated human PBMCs in vitro. PBMCs were obtained from 10 healthy volunteers and stimulated with PHA. Then relative intracellular calcium ion concentration ([Ca(2+)](i)) was assessed by fluorescence microscopy, and the production of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Stimulation with PHA significantly raised [Ca(2+)](i) and enhanced the production of MCP-1 and TNF-alpha by human PBMCs. Azelnidipine significantly diminished the PHA-induced rise of [Ca(2+)](i), and the production of MCP-1 and TNF-alpha. These findings indicate that azelnidipine might have an anti-inflammatory influence on human PBMCs, although the mechanisms and the difference from other CCBs still remain unclear and further exploration should be required.

    Brugada syndrome (BrS), caused by ion channel abnormalities, is characterized by ST segment elevation and negative T waves in the right precordial electrocardiographic (ECG) leads recorded over the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT). BrS is sensitive to body temperature and can lead to T-wave alternans (TWA), ventricular tachycardia, and sudden death. Recent studies in an isolated canine RVOT model of BrS demonstrated that reversal of the transmural gradient of repolarization caused the ECG characteristics and that major intraepicardial and transmural dispersion of action potentials (APs) initiated phase 2 reentry, premature ventricular activations, and tachyarrhythmias. Hypothermia enhanced the heterogeneity of the AP and promoted the origination of phase 2 reentry in the epicardium of the RVOT, but the prolonged AP duration frequently blocked reentry. Hyperthermia abbreviated the AP and facilitated the maintenance of reentry and tachyarrhythmias. Bradycardia promoted alternans in the phase 2 dome of the AP within the epicardium of the RVOT, resulting in TWA. The above phenomena were localized in the epicardium of the RVOT. Blockade of the transient outward current, I(to), reduced AP heterogeneity and prevented arrhythmias in the BrS model. In addition, epicardial activation delay led to fragmented QRS, a risk marker of prognosis in BrS. Body surface mapping in patients with BrS supported these experimental findings. In conclusion, the AP heterogeneity within the epicardium of the RVOT contributes to the ECG characteristics, temperature sensitivity, TWA, and arrhythmias in BrS, and body surface mapping and fragmented QRS can be effective predictors of risk in patients with BrS.

    Background: Progression of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) to left ventricular dilatation and systolic dysfunction sometimes occurs. However, the mechanism of the transition from hypertrophy to dysfunction has not been elucidated. It has been reported that circulating levels of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), which is a major factor promoting the accumulation of macrophages, are increased in patients with congestive heart failure. We measured circulating levels of MCP-1 in patients with HCM and examined whether MCP-1 was expressed in the myocardium of HCM patients. We also examined whether circulating levels of MCP-1 were correlated with left ventricular dysfunction. Methods: Circulating levels of MCP-1 were measured by an enzyme immunoassay in 26 patients with HCM (60 2 years old) and 20 control subjects (57 2 years old). Cardiac function was evaluated by two-dimensional echocardiography and cardiac catheterization. Results: HCM patients had significantly elevated levels of MCP-1 (HCM: 309+/-30 vs. control: 178+/-8 pg/ml, P<001). MCPI levels in patients with systolic dysfunction were significantly higher than those in patients without systolic dysfunction (P<05) and were also significantly higher than those in patients with outflow obstruction (P<05). Immunohistochemical analysis revealed that MCP-1 was expressed in endomyocardial biopsy samples obtained from HCM patients with systolic dysfunction. Furthermore, MCP-1 levels were inversely correlated with fractional shortening (r=-.4011, P<05) and correlated with left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (r=-.579, P<01). Conclusion: These results show that MCP-1 is associated with, and might be involved in the pathogenesis of, left ventricular systolic dysfunction in patients with HCM. (C) 2009 Elsevier Inc.

    BACKGROUND: It has been reported that that the amount of 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal (HNE), which is a major lipid peroxidation product and a cytotoxic aldehyde, is increased in the human failing myocardium. This study was designed to determine whether HNE has a pro-oxidant effect in cardiac myocytes and whether HNE causes Ca(2+) overload. METHODS AND RESULTS: Exposure to HNE for 10 minutes in the presence of ferric nitrilotriacetate induced the production of hydroxyl radical (.OH) in the rat myocardium as assessed by electron spin resonance spectroscopy, and HNE induced the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in a dose-dependent manner as assessed by 2', 7'-dichlorofluorescein diacetate fluorescence. HNE increased intracellular Ca(2+) concentration ([Ca(2+)](i)) as assessed by fura-2 ratio in a dose- and time-dependent manner. After 20 minutes of HNE (400 micromol/L) exposure, hypercontracture was induced in 67% of the cells. Catalase, an antioxidative enzyme that can decompose hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)), significantly attenuated the increase in [Ca(2+)](i) and completely inhibited hypercontracture. Carvedilol, a beta-blocker with potent antioxidant activity, also significantly attenuated the increase in [Ca(2+)](i) and completely inhibited hypercontracture, but propranolol had no effect on either [Ca(2+)](i) increase or hypercontracture. CONCLUSIONS: HNE induces the formation of ROS, especially H(2)O(2) and .OH, in cardiomyocytes and subsequently ROS cause intracellular Ca(2+) overload. HNE formation may play an important role as a mediator of oxidative stress in heart failure.

    BACKGROUND: Repolarization abnormality, especially during bradycardia, might be critical for initiation of ventricular fibrillation (VF) in patients with Brugada syndrome (BrS), but the contribution of the rate-dependent repolarization dynamics to the occurrence of VF is still unknown. OBJECTIVE: The aim of our study was to determine the differences in rate-dependent repolarization dynamics between BrS with and without spontaneous VF and between BrS with and without SCN5A mutation. METHODS: The subjects were 37 BrS patients with VF (VF(+) group: 10 male subjects) and without VF (VF(-) group: 27 male subjects) and 20 control subjects. Genetic analysis of SCN5A was performed in all 37 BrS patients. The relationships between QT, QTp, Tp-e, and RR intervals were obtained from Holter recordings as first linear regression lines, and the slopes of QT/RR, QTp/RR, and Tp-e/RR linear regression lines as the sensitivity of rate-dependent repolarization dynamics were compared. RESULTS: QT/RR and Tp-e/RR slopes showed loss of a rate-dependent property in the VF(+) group compared with those in the VF(-) and control groups. There was no significant difference in QTp/RR slope among the VF(+), VF(-) and control groups. The Tp-e interval had a negative correlation with the RR interval in the VF(+) group and a positive correlation with the RR interval in the VF(-) and control groups. There was no significant difference in QT/RR, QTp/RR, and Tp-e/RR slopes between BrS patients with SCN5A mutation and those without SCN5A mutation. CONCLUSIONS: Loss of rate-dependent QT dynamics may be associated with occurrence of VF in BrS.

    BACKGROUND: Although radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) has been used to treat patients with Brugada syndrome (BS), it is difficult to eliminate polymorphic ventricular tachycardias (VTs) completely. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of RFCA in eliminating recurrent VTs in an experimental model of BS. METHODS: We optically mapped electrical activity on the epicardial (n = 9) or transmural (n = 8) surface in 17 arterially perfused canine right ventricle preparations. Using pinacidil (5 microM) and pilsicainide (5 microM), we induced a model of BS that showed spontaneous VT. We then applied RFCA to the earliest activation site of premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) in the epicardium (EPI) or endocardium (ENDO) of the RV. RESULTS: After induction of BS, the transmural electrocardiogram (ECG) showed BS-type ECG in association with prominent heterogeneity of action potential duration (APDs) within the EPI (APD: maximum 272 +/- 39 ms, minimum 200 +/- 39 ms, P < .01), but not within the ENDO. PVCs originated in the EPI region having short APDs and triggered functional reentry causing VT. Multiple epicardial foci of PVCs existed in each tissue (3.7 +/- 1.9 foci/tissue). RFCA at the earliest activation site of PVCs in the EPI disconnected the short and long APD regions and eliminated all PVCs and VTs, although APD heterogeneity still existed. All successful RFCA lesions were confined to the EPI. RFCA in the ENDO failed to eliminate VT or PVCs. CONCLUSION: These experimental observations suggest that RFCA applied to the EPI may be more effective than applied to the ENDO in eliminating VT in patients with BS.

    BACKGROUND: Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) do not occur frequently but can induce ventricular fibrillation (VF) in patients with Brugada syndrome. The effect of SCN5A mutation on the onset of ventricular arrhythmias is unknown. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate PVC morphology and onset of VF in patients with Brugada syndrome. METHODS: Morphology of PVCs was evaluated by 12-lead ECG in 32 patients with Brugada syndrome. Patients had spontaneous ventricular arrhythmia (n = 17) or sodium channel blocker-induced ventricular arrhythmia (n = 19). Patients were classified into two groups according to the existence of SCN5A mutation (22 mutation negative, 10 mutation positive). RESULTS: Patients without mutation often had PVCs of left bundle branch block (LBBB) morphology (82%), especially with inferior axis (77%). Patients with mutation had PVCs of both right bundle branch block (36%) and LBBB (64%) morphologies. Only two patients with mutation had PVCs of LBBB, inferior-axis morphology. CONCLUSION: Patients without SCN5A mutation often had PVCs of LBBB, inferior-axis morphology, suggesting a right ventricular outflow tract origin. Patients with SCN5A mutations had PVCs that originated from both the right and left ventricles.

    BACKGROUND: Conduction abnormalities serve as a substrate for ventricular fibrillation (VF) in patients with Brugada syndrome (BS). Signal-averaged electrograms can detect late potentials, but the significance of conduction abnormalities within the QRS complex is still unknown. The latter can present as multiple spikes within the QRS complex (fragmented QRS [f-QRS]). We hypothesized that f-QRS could indicate a substrate for VF and might predict a high risk of VF for patients with BS. METHODS AND RESULTS: In study 1, we analyzed the incidence of f-QRS in 115 patients with BS (13 resuscitated from VF, 28 with syncope, and 74 asymptomatic). f-QRS was observed in 43% of patients, more often in the VF group (incidence of f-QRS: VF 85%, syncope 50%, and asymptomatic 34%, P<0.01). SCN5A mutations occurred more often in patients with f-QRS (33%) than in patients without f-QRS (5%). In patients with syncope or VF, only 6% without f-QRS experienced VF during follow-up (43+/-25 months), but 58% of patients with f-QRS had recurrent syncope due to VF (P<0.01). In study 2, to investigate the mechanism of f-QRS, we studied in vitro models of BS in canine right ventricular tissues (n=4) and optically mapped multisite action potentials. In the experimental model of BS, ST elevation resulted from a large phase 1 notch of the action potential in the epicardium, and local epicardial activation delay reproduced f-QRS in the transmural ECG. CONCLUSIONS: f-QRS appears to be a marker for the substrate for spontaneous VF in BS and predicts patients at high risk of syncope.

    This Seminar presents the most recent information about the congenital long and short QT syndromes, emphasising the varied genotype-phenotype association in the ten different long QT syndromes and the five different short QT syndromes. Although uncommon, these syndromes serve as a Rosetta stone for the understanding of inherited ion-channel disorders leading to life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias. Ionic abnormal changes mainly affecting K(+), Na(+), or Ca(2+) currents, which either prolong or shorten ventricular repolarisation, can create a substrate of electrophysiological heterogeneity that predisposes to the development of ventricular tachyarrhythmias and sudden death. The understanding of the genetic basis of the syndromes is hoped to lead to genetic therapy that can restore repolarisation. Presently, symptomatic individuals are generally best treated with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator. Clinicians should be aware of these syndromes and realise that drugs, ischaemia, exercise, and emotions can precipitate sudden death in susceptible individuals.

    BACKGROUND: Brugada syndrome (BrS) is characterized by repolarization abnormality with ST-segment elevation in the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT). OBJECTIVE: Although action potential (AP) heterogeneity is associated with induction of ventricular arrhythmias (VA) in BrS, clinical evidence and its experimental correlations are still absent and are the focus of this study. METHODS: We evaluated repolarization heterogeneity in 15 patients with BrS using body surface mapping and in 8 pairs of isolated canine RVOT and right ventricular anteroinferior (RVAI) preparations having drug-induced BrS using optical mapping. RESULTS: Patients had large J-ST-segment elevation and long QT interval in the RVOT at baseline. Administration of pilsicainide (1 mg/kg) exaggerated J-ST-segment elevation, caused simultaneous long and short QT intervals in the RVOT, and induced polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (VT) and T wave alternans (TWA). Dispersion of QT within the RVOT after pilsicainide was greater in patients that had syncope or ventricular fibrillation than those that did not. Ventricular arrhythmias originated from the RVOT along with local electrocardiogram changes and TWA. Repolarization heterogeneity was much less in areas outside the RVOT. Inducing BrS increased AP heterogeneity (with and without spike-and-dome) within the RVOT epicardium. Phase 2 reentry and TWA originated from the epicardium in 88% and 50% of RVOT preparations, respectively. In contrast, the RVOT endocardium and RVAI had little AP heterogeneity, with neither reentry nor TWA. CONCLUSION: The instability and heterogeneity of repolarization within the epicardium of the RVOT seem to be associated with arrhythmogenesis in both patients and in the in vitro tissue models of BrS.

    OBJECTIVES: The goal of our work was to examine the relationships of atrial fibrillation (AF) with genetic, clinical, and electrophysiological backgrounds in Brugada syndrome (BrS). BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation is often observed in patients with BrS and indicates that electrical abnormality might exist in the atrium as well as in the ventricle. SCN5A, a gene encoding the cardiac sodium channel, has been reported to be causally related to BrS. However, little is known about the relationships of atrial arrhythmias with genetic, clinical, and electrophysiological backgrounds of BrS. METHODS: Seventy-three BrS patients (49 +/- 12 years of age, men/women = 72/1) were studied. The existence of SCN5A mutation and clinical variables (syncopal episode, documented ventricular fibrillation [VF], and family history of sudden death) were compared with spontaneous AF episodes. Genetic and clinical variables were also compared with electrophysiologic (EP) parameters: atrial refractory period, interatrial conduction time (CT), repetitive atrial firing, and AF induction by atrial extra-stimulus testing. RESULTS: Spontaneous AF occurred in 10 (13.7%) of the BrS patients and SCN5A mutation was detected in 15 patients. Spontaneous AF was associated with higher incidence of syncopal episodes (60.0% vs. 22.2%, p < 0.03) and documented VF (40.0% vs. 14.3%, p < 0.05). SCN5A mutation was associated with prolonged CT (p < 0.03) and AF induction (p < 0.05) in EP study, but not related to the spontaneous AF episode and other clinical variables. In patients with documented VF, higher incidence of spontaneous AF (30.8% vs. 10.0%, p < 0.05), AF induction (53.8% vs. 20.0%, p < 0.03), and prolonged CT was observed. CONCLUSIONS: Spontaneous AF and VF are closely linked clinically and electrophysiologically in BrS patients. Patients with spontaneous AF have more severe clinical backgrounds in BrS. SCN5A mutation is associated with electrical abnormality but not disease severity.

    OBJECTIVES: We examined the relationship between repolarization abnormality and coved-type ST-segment elevation with terminal inverted T-wave (type 1 electrocardiogram [ECG]) in patients with Brugada syndrome (BrS). BACKGROUND: Recent experimental studies have suggested that accentuation of the right ventricular action potential (AP) notch preferentially prolongs epicardial AP causing inversion of the T-wave. METHODS: In 19 patients with BrS and 3 control subjects, activation-recovery intervals (ARIs) and repolarization times (RTs) in the epicardium and endocardium were directly examined with the use of local unipolar electrograms at the right ventricular outflow tract. Surface ECG, ARI, and RT were examined before and after administration of pilsicainide. RESULTS: Type 1 ECG was observed in 10 of the 19 BrS patients before the administration of pilsicainide and in all of the 19 patients after the administration of pilsicainide. We found that ARI and RT in the epicardium were shorter than those in the endocardium in all 9 BrS patients without type 1 ECG under baseline conditions and in all control subjects regardless of pilsicainide administration. However, longer epicardial ARI than endocardial ARI was observed in 8 of the 10 BrS patients manifesting type 1 ECG under baseline conditions and in all of the BrS patients after the administration of pilsicainide. Also, epicardial RT was longer than endocardial RT in all patients manifesting type 1 ECG regardless of pilsicainide administration. CONCLUSIONS: Our data provide support for the hypothesis that the negative T-wave associated with type 1 BrS ECG is due to a preferential prolongation of the epicardial AP secondary to accentuation of the AP notch in the region of the right ventricular outflow tract.

    INTRODUCTION: Macroscopic T-wave alternans (TWA) is sometimes observed after sodium channel blocker administration in patients with Brugada syndrome (BS), but little is known about the association between occurrence of TWA and clinical characteristics in BS patients. We investigated the association between spontaneous ventricular fibrillation (VF) occurrence and TWA after pilsicainide, a sodium channel blocker administration in BS patients. METHODS AND RESULTS: We administered pilsicainide at a dose of 1 mg/kg to 77 BS patients (76 males and one female; mean age, 48.4 years) and examined the association between TWA after pilsicainide administration and clinical characteristics, including age, spontaneous VF, syncope, family history of sudden death, spontaneous coved ST elevation, late potentials (LP), induction of VF by programmed electrical stimulation, and SCN5A mutation. None of the patients had TWA before pilsicainide administration, but TWA became apparent in 17 (22.1%) of the patients after pilsicainide administration. Patients with TWA had a significantly higher incidence of spontaneous VF (52.9% vs 8.3%, P < 0.001) and syncope (58.8% vs 26.7%, P < 0.05) than did patients without TWA. Then, we focused on the association between spontaneous VF and clinical characteristics. Patients with spontaneous VF had a significantly higher incidence of TWA (64.3% vs 12.7%, P < 0.001) and LP positive (92.9% vs 56.5%, P < 0.01) than did patients without spontaneous VF. In multivariate analysis, TWA (P = 0.001) and LP (P = 0.047) appeared as the independent predictor for spontaneous VF. CONCLUSION: TWA after pilsicainide administration is associated with a high risk of clinical VF in patients with BS.

    Background: Idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (IPAH) is a progressive disease characterized by inappropriate increase of pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells (PASMCs) leading to occlusion of pulmonary arterioles. In this study, we assessed the inhibitory effects of simvastatin, an HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor, on proliferation and migration of PASMCs obtained from patients with IPAH. Methods and Results: PASMCs were obtained from 6 patients with IPAH who underwent lung transplantation. Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) (10 ng/mL) stimulation caused a significantly higher growth rate of PASMCs from patients with IPAH than that of control cells assessed by 3H-thymidine incorporation (P<0.05). Simvastatin at 0.1 μmol/L significantly inhibited PDGF-induced cell proliferation of PASMCs from IPAH patients but did not inhibit proliferation of control cells at the same concentration. Simvastatin at 1 μmol/L also inhibited PDGF-induced migration of PASMCs from IPAH patients assessed by a transwell migration assay (P<0.05) and a time-lapse microscopy assay with a dish that has micro-lithographed squared pattern (Kuraray, Japan) (P<0.0001). Conclusions: Simvastatin may be useful for treatment of patients with IPAH. [J Physiol Sci. 2008;58 Suppl:S189]

    Background: Cardiomyocytes lose their capacity to proliferate soon after birth. Therefore, we can not obtain large amount of cardiomyocytes in vitro. Here, we report the amplification of the cardiomyocyte population using retrovirus-mediated transfer of simian virus 40 large T (SV40T) antigen. SV40T was subsequently removed by Cre-loxP-based site-specific recombination.Methods and Results: Cultured neonatal rat cardiomyocytes were transduced with a retroviral vector expressing SV40T which is flanked by a pair of loxP recombination targets. Transduced cardiomyocytes yielded clones with greatly extended life spans up to population doubling level 142. Laser scanning cytometry analysis revealed that the transduction caused an induction of cell cycle progression. Complete elimination of the transferred SV40T gene was achieved after infection with a recombinant adenovirus expressing the Cre recombinase. Loss of SV40T caused G1-phase cell cycle arrest and discontinuance of cellular proliferation. DNA microarray analysis of cells that had lost SV40T showed increases in expression levels of cardiomyocyte-specific genes (cardiac actin alpha, Troponin T, myosin light chain and actinin alpha2)Conclusion: This study provides a means to obtain large numbers of well-differentiated and safe cardiomyocytes.

    OBJECTIVE: Andersen-Tawil syndrome (ATS) is a channelopathy affecting inward rectifier potassium I(K1) with QT prolongation, large U waves, and frequent ventricular tachycardia (VT). Although ATS is clinically defined and genetically identified, its electrophysiological mechanism is still unclear, and thus, was the subject of the current study. METHODS AND RESULTS: We replicated the major electrophysiological features of ATS with cesium chloride (CsCl, at I(K1) blockade concentration of 5-10 mmol/l) in 23 isolated canine left ventricular tissues perfused arterially with Tyrode's solution having normal or low potassium concentrations, [K(+)](o). We mapped action potentials (APs) on the cut-exposed transmural surface of the wedges in control, after CsCl, and CsCl with 0.15 mumol/l isoproterenol (CsCl+ISP). CsCl delayed late phase 3 repolarization and prolonged the duration of the AP, more so during low [K(+)](o) perfusion. Rapid pacing induced delayed afterdepolarizations (DADs) in all low [K(+)](o) and in 71% of normal [K(+)](o) preparations after CsCl treatment. Addition of ISP induced DADs in all preparations. DADs originated in mid-to-endocardium, and initiated VT after CsCl+ISP. Migration of DAD-VT foci resulted in multifocal VT. Alternating DADs at 2 foci resulted in bidirectional VT. There were more foci and longer durations of VT at low [K(+)](o) than at normal [K(+)](o). Delayed late phase 3 repolarization of APs and DADs generated U waves. Verapamil abolished all DADs and VT. CONCLUSIONS: CsCl blockade of I(K1) produced a ventricular wedge model of ATS. Suppressing I(K1) generated U waves by delaying late repolarization of APs and creating DADs, and promoted polymorphic VT by triggering DADs at multiple shifting sites.

    OBJECTIVE: Transmural heterogeneity in the ventricular free wall, enhanced by the midmyocardial long action potential duration (APD) of M cells, plays an important role in the arrhythmogenesis of long QT syndrome. Although we observed dynamic expression of M cell phenotypes in the canine ventricular free wall, it is still unclear whether similar phenomena are present in the interventricular septum. This study evaluated transmural heterogeneity of APD in the septum. METHODS: We isolated and perfused 22 canine septal preparations through the septal branch of the anterior descending coronary artery, and optically mapped 256 channels of action potentials on their cut-exposed transseptal surfaces before and after treatment with sotalol (I(Kr) blocker), anemone toxin II (ATX-II, which slows the inactivation of I(Na)), or drug-free state in 6, 9, and 22 preparations, respectively. The preparations were paced from the left ventricular endocardium at cycle lengths of 500, 1000, 2000, and 4000 ms. RESULTS: We observed progressively lengthening of APD across the septum from the right ventricular to the left ventricular endocardium without a midmyocardial maximum under all conditions. All action potentials had minor phase-1 notches, resembling the endocardial action potential in the ventricular free wall. Increasing cycle lengths and concentrations of sotalol and ATX-II prolonged APD without midmyocardial preference and increased the transseptal dispersion of APDs. CONCLUSIONS: Canine interventricular septal action potentials are similar in shape to the endocardial action potentials in the ventricular free wall, with smooth transseptal transition in APD. We found no phenotypical expression of M cells in the canine interventricular septum.

    BACKGROUND: Fever promotes ventricular arrhythmias in Brugada syndrome (BrS). Hypothermia can induce BrS electrocardiogram (ECG) and arrhythmia. However, the mechanisms are unclear. OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the hypothesis that pathological temperatures promoted arrhythmogenesis by modulating the spatial heterogeneity and functional dynamics of right ventricular electrophysiological activity. METHODS: We mapped action potentials (APs) on the epicardial or cut-exposed transmural surfaces and recorded transmural ECGs in 27 arterially perfused canine right ventricular preparations before and after inducing BrS at 32 degrees C, 36.5 degrees C, and 40 degrees C. RESULTS: We observed major intraepicardial dispersion of AP duration (APD) and reversal of transmural gradient of APD in association with manifestation of BrS at 36.5 degrees C. Reducing the temperature to 32 degrees C prolonged APDs and enhanced the phase 1 notch of epicardial APs, while 40 degrees C caused opposite changes. Prominent phase 2 domes of APs frequently led to spontaneous premature ventricular activations (PVAs), which conducted to surrounding regions having shorter APDs. Longer APDs at 32 degrees C and 36.5 degrees C frequently blocked reentry, although they promoted PVA, while shortened APDs at 40 degrees C facilitated reentrant ventricular tachycardia. During bradycardia (2,000 ms), the J-ST elevation in the ECG was enhanced at 32 degrees C and attenuated at 40 degrees C. Rapid pacing (500 ms) eliminated the dome of epicardial APs and enhanced J-ST elevation at each temperature. Blocking the transient outward current, I(to), with 4-aminopyridine reduced J-ST elevation and eliminated the PVA and reentry. CONCLUSIONS: In this BrS model, prolongation and increased dispersion of APDs promoted spontaneous activation during hypothermia, while APD abbreviation facilitated reentry during hyperthermia. I(to) mediated the arrhythmogenicity.

    BACKGROUND: The Brugada syndrome is characterized by ST-segment elevation on the ECG, especially in the right precordial leads sensitive to the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT). OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the hypothesis that right ventricular electrophysiologic heterogeneity caused arrhythmogenicity in the Brugada syndrome. METHODS: Action potentials (APs) were mapped on the epicardium of 14 RVOT preparations and on the transmural surfaces of 15 pairs of RVOT and right ventricular anteroinferior (RVAI) preparations isolated from canine hearts. Brugada ECG and arrhythmias were induced with pilsicainide (2.5-12.5 micromol/L), pinacidil (1.25-12.5 micromol/L), and terfenadine (2.0 micromol/L). RESULTS: Low doses of drugs elevated the J-ST segment and induced APs with both short and long action potential durations (APDs) in contiguous RVOT epicardial regions. In addition, APs in the RVOT had a larger phase 1 notch and longer APD than in RVAI. The longest APDs were in the epicardium in RVOT but in the endocardium in RVAI regions. High doses of drugs eliminated the phase 2 dome of the AP and abbreviated APDs in the epicardium but not in endocardium and reduced the epicardial heterogeneity of APs but increased the transmural gradient of APD in 14 (93%) of the RVOT preparations. In contrast, abbreviations of epicardial APDs occurred in only 4 (27%) of the RVAI preparations. Ventricular tachycardia occurred more frequently in the RVOT (47%) than in paired RVAI preparations (7%). Blocking the transient outward current reduced the heterogeneity of APs and eliminated arrhythmogenicity in all preparations. CONCLUSION: Compared with the RVAI region, the RVOT has greater electrophysiologic heterogeneity that contributes to arrhythmogenicity in this model of Brugada syndrome.

    Macroscopic T wave alternans (TWA) associated with increased occurrence of ventricular arrhythmias has been reported in patients with Brugada syndrome. However, the mechanisms in this syndrome are still unclear. We evaluated the hypothesis that TWA in Brugada syndrome was caused by the dynamic instability and heterogeneity of action potentials (APs) in the right ventricle. Using an optical mapping system, we mapped APs on the epicardium or transmural surfaces of 28 isolated and arterially perfused canine right ventricular preparations having drug-induced Brugada syndrome (in micromol/l: 2.5-15 pinacidil, 5.0 terfenadine, and 5.0-13 pilsicainide). Bradycardia at cycle length (CL) of 2,632 +/- 496 ms (n = 19) induced alternating deep and shallow T waves in the transmural electrocardiogram. Compared with the shallow T waves, deep T waves were associated with epicardial APs having longer durations and larger domes. Adjacent regions having APs with alternating domes, with constant domes, and without domes coexisted simultaneously in the epicardium and caused TWA. In contrast to the alternating epicardial APs, midmyocardial and endocardial APs did not change during TWA. Alternans could be terminated by rapid (CL: 529 +/- 168 ms, n = 7) or very slow (CL: 3,000 ms, n = 7) pacing. The heterogeneic APs during TWA augmented the dispersion of repolarization both within the epicardium and from the epicardium to the endocardium and caused phase 2 reentry. In this drug-induced model of Brugada syndrome, heterogeneic AP contours and dynamic alternans in the dome of right ventricular epicardial, but not midmyocardial or endocardial, APs caused TWA and heightened arrhythmogenicity in part by increasing the dispersion of repolarization.

    AIMS: Arrhythmic storm or repetitive ventricular arrhythmia (VA) has been occasionally observed in Brugada syndrome (BS). A beta-adrenergic stimulator [isoproterenol (ISP)] has been reported to suppress this arrhythmic storm in sporadic cases. Accordingly, we investigated the antiarrhythmic effects of ISP infusion in consecutive BS patients with arrhythmic storm or repetitive VA. METHODS AND RESULTS: Seven BS patients with arrhythmic storm were studied. Intravenous ISP was administered as a bolus injection (1-2 microg), followed by continuous infusion (0.15 microg/min). Arrhythmic storm or repetitive VA was suppressed immediately after the bolus administration of ISP, which was followed by continuous infusion of low-dose ISP for 1-3 days. In all patients, ST-elevation decreased in right precordial leads. In six of the seven patients, VA subsided after the discontinuance of ISP. RR interval was shortened and ST-elevation in right precordial leads was decreased after ISP bolus injection. ST-elevation in right precordial leads remained decreased during continuous ISP infusion, whereas the RR interval returned to the control level. CONCLUSION: Continuous administration of low-dose ISP may be effective for the suppression of repetitive VA occurrence in patients with BS.

    The long QT syndrome (LQTS) is characterized by prolongation of the QT interval, causing torsade de pointes and sudden cardiac death. This syndrome can be divided into idiopathic (congenital) and acquired forms. The idiopathic form is a familial disorder that can be associated with sensorineural deafness (Jervell and Lange--Nielsen syndrome, autosomal recessive) or normal hearing (Romano--Ward syndrome, autosomal dominant). The acquired form has a long QT interval caused by various drugs such as quinidine sotalol and dofetilide, also by noncardiovascular drugs such as antihistamine, antibiotics, antipsychotics and others. Also, the QT interval is prolonged by electrolyte abnormalities such as hypokalemia and hypomagnesemia, central nervous system lesions, significant bradyarrhythmias, cardiac ganglionitis, mitral valve prolapse and probucol. DNA variants appearing to predispose to drug-associated acquired long QT syndrome have been reported in congenital long QT.

    Right ventricular (RV) outflow tract obstruction (RVOTO) is an uncommon complication of lung transplantation in patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH) and both medical management and surgical intervention are required. A 28-year-old female with primary PH was referred and because she did not respond to medical treatment, living-donor lobar lung transplantation was performed. The operation was successful, but dyspnea and exercise intolerance developed during rehabilitation and transthoracic echocardiography revealed RVOTO. Intravenous disopyramide during cardiac catheterization reduced the pressure gradient from 35 mmHg to 16 mmHg without decreasing RV systolic pressure. However, electrical and hemodynamic parameters were adversely affected by disopyramide and thus, after cardiac catheterization, administration of fluid and a low dose of atenolol was started, and her symptoms improved. Transthoracic echocardiography showed improvement in the RVOTO. This case suggests that disopyramide should be avoided for patients with RVOTO following lung transplantation and that other negative inotropic agents, such as beta-blockers, are more effective for relief of RVOTO.

    We report two cases of peripheral atelectasis during cadaveric and living-donor lobar lung transplantation, which had different effects on the flow profile of pulmonary vein (PV) anastomoses. In the patient who underwent living-donor lobar lung transplantation, we detected the increase in the velocity of blood flow through the left PV anastomosis by intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography. Then peripheral atelectasis occurred in the transplanted left lung lobe. On the other hand, in the patient who underwent cadaveric bilateral lung transplantation, peripheral atelectasis occurred, but no changes in velocities of blood flow through PV anastomoses were detected by intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography. This difference may have been caused by the difference in sizes of pulmonary beds of transplanted grafts. These findings indicate the necessity of careful monitoring of PV anastomoses, especially in cases of living-donor lobar lung transplantation.

    Intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography is generally performed to detect vascular complications during lung transplantation. We report a case with a kink in pulmonary artery (PA) anastomosis suggested by an abnormal flow profile of pulmonary vein (PV) anastomoses during living-donor lobar lung transplantation. During the transplantation, velocity of blood flow through the right PV anastomosis showed abnormal elevation. Then, the patient's PA pressure elevated abnormally and a kink in the left PA anastomosis was found. Careful monitoring of PV anastomoses may enable detection of not only an abnormality of PV anastomoses but also that of PA anastomoses, especially in living-donor lobar lung transplantation.

    INTRODUCTION: Repolarization and depolarization abnormalities have been reported to be related to Brugada syndrome. METHODS AND RESULTS: We evaluated the relationships between repolarization abnormality and depolarization abnormality using 48-lead unipolar signal-averaged electrocardiograms and 87-lead unipolar body surface maps in 15 patients with Brugada-type ECGs. Data were compared with those from healthy control subjects (n = 5) and within subgroups of Brugada syndrome with (n = 8) and without (n = 7) ventricular arrhythmias (VA) induced by programmed electrical stimulation (PES). Eighty-seven-lead body surface maps were recorded, and potential maps were constructed to evaluate elevation of the ST segment 20 ms after the J point. Forty-eight-lead signal-averaged ECGs were recorded, and isochronal maps of duration of the delayed potential (dDP) were constructed to evaluate the dDP in each lead. Potential maps showed that patients with Brugada-type ECG, especially those with VA induced by programmed electrical stimulation, had greater elevation of the ST segment in the right ventricular outflow tract, especially at E5. Isochronal maps of dDP in the Brugada-type ECG group showed that maximum dDP was located at E5 and that the area with long dDP was larger than that in the control subjects. The dDPs at E7, E5, F7, and F5 in the VA-inducible group were significantly longer than those in the VA-noninducible group. These results showed that the location of greater elevation in the ST segment coincided with the location of longer dDP. CONCLUSION: Repolarization abnormality and depolarization abnormality in the walls of both ventricles, especially in the right ventricular outflow tract, are related to the VA of Brugada syndrome.

    BACKGROUND: Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), a potent chemoattractant for monocytes, plays an important role in the earliest events of atherogenesis. However, direct evidence of the effects of MCP-1 on atherosclerosis in chronic hemodialysis (HD) patients has not been reported. METHODS AND RESULTS: The serum MCP-1 concentrations and the intimal - medial thickness (IMT) in the carotid arteries were measured in 42 non-diabetic chronic HD patients and 20 age-matched controls. The expression of MCP-1 was examined immunohistochemically in radial arterial tissues obtained from the HD patients. IMT and the serum concentration of MCP-1 in the HD patients were both significantly greater than in controls. Multiple regression analysis revealed that the serum concentration of MCP-1 was an independent factor influencing IMT. Tissue immunostaining showed that MCP-1 is expressed in both endothelial and smooth muscle cells and that its level of expression correlates with the serum concentration of MCP-1. CONCLUSIONS: An increase in MCP-1 may be an important factor in the progression of atherosclerosis in non-diabetic HD patients.

    Hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated channel 4 gene HCN4 is a pacemaker channel that plays a key role in automaticity of sinus node in the heart, and an HCN4 mutation was reported in a patient with sinus node dysfunction. Expression of HCN4 in the heart is, however, not confined to the sinus node cells but is found in other tissues, including cells of the conduction system. On the other hand, mutations in another cardiac ion channel gene, SCN5A, also cause sinus node dysfunction as well as other cardiac arrhythmias, including long QT syndrome, Brugada syndrome, idiopathic ventricular fibrillation, and progressive cardiac conduction disturbance. These observations imply that HCN4 abnormalities may be involved in the pathogenesis of various arrhythmias, similar to the SCN5A mutations. In this study, we analyzed patients suffering from sinus node dysfunction, progressive cardiac conduction disease, and idiopathic ventricular fibrillation for mutations in HCN4. A missense mutation, D553N, was found in a patient with sinus node dysfunction who showed recurrent syncope, QT prolongation in electrocardiogram, and polymorphic ventricular tachycardia, torsade de pointes. In vitro functional study of the D553N mutation showed a reduced membranous expression associated with decreased If currents because of a trafficking defect of the HCN4 channel in a dominant-negative manner. These data suggest that the loss of function of HCN4 is associated with sinus nodal dysfunction and that a consequence of pacemaker channel abnormality might underlie clinical features of QT prolongation and polymorphic ventricular tachycardia developed under certain conditions.

    BACKGROUND: Some studies have shown that patients with Brugada syndrome (BS) have atrioventricular conduction disturbance, but their sinus node function has not been evaluated. METHODS AND RESULTS: The patients group consisted of 59 male patients and 1 female patient with BS. Supraventricular and ventricular programmed electrical stimulation (PES) was performed. Ventricular fibrillation (VF) or sustained polymorphic ventricular tachycardia was induced by ventricular PES in 26 patients with BS (VF group), but was not induced in the other 34 patients (non-VF group). Sinus node function and conduction of the atrioventricular (AV) node in the control group, non-VF group and VF group were evaluated. Sinus node function was attenuated and the His - ventricle interval was prolonged in the VF group (corrected sinus node recovery time: 452+/-126 ms (VF group), 324+/-146 ms (non-VF group), Sino-atrial conduction time: 179+/-60 ms (VF group), 127+/-60 ms (non-VF group), His-ventricle interval: 41+/-9 ms (VF group), 35+/-8 ms (non-VF group)). CONCLUSION: The function of both the sinus node and AV node are attenuated in patients with PES-induced VF.

    BACKGROUND: Primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) is a rare disease characterized by progressively increased resistance of the pulmonary arteries associated with vascular remodeling. Infiltration of inflammatory cells in affected vessels is a common pathological finding. Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) is recognized as a potent chemotactic and activating factor for monocytes and leukocytes, but its significance in PPH is unclear. METHODS AND RESULTS: Serum MCP-1 concentrations were measured in 16 PPH patients and the results were compared with those in 16 normal controls. MCP-1 concentrations in PPH patients (265.6+/-29.5 pg/ml) were significantly elevated compared with those in normal controls (119.6+/-6.9 pg/ml, p<0.0001). In 9 patients (3 men, 6 women; mean age, 29+/-3 years), repeated MCP-1 and hemodynamic measurements were performed prior to and during intravenous epoprostenol therapy. During a mean follow-up period of 7+/-1 months, MCP-1 concentrations were significantly reduced (288.8+/-122.8 to 185.9+/-117.5 pg/ml, p<0.01). CONCLUSIONS: Circulating MCP-1 concentrations are increased in PPH patients, but can alleviated by chronic intravenous epoprostenol therapy. The increase in MCP-1 might be one of the important factors responsible for the disease development in patients with PPH.

    We attempted to determine the usefulness of body surface mapping (BSM) for differentiating patients with Brugada syndrome (BS) from patients with asymptomatic Brugada syndrome (ABS). Electrocardiograms (ECG) and BSM were recorded in 7 patients with BS and 35 patients with ABS. Following the administration of Ic antiarrhythmic drugs, BSM was recorded in 5 patients with BS and 16 patients with ABS. The maximum amplitudes at J0, J20, J40 and J60 were compared between the 2 groups, as were 3-dimensional maps. The maximum amplitudes at J0, J20 and J60 under control conditions were larger in patients with BS than in patients with ABS (P < 0.05). A three-dimensional map of the ST segments under control conditions in patients with BS showed a higher peak of ST elevation in the median precordium compared to that for patients with ABS. Increases in ST elevation at J20, J40 and J60 following drug administration were greater in patients with BS than in patients with ABS (P < 0.05). Evaluation of the change in amplitude of the ST segment at E5 caused by Ic drug administration was also useful for differentiating between the 2 groups. In conclusion, BSM was useful for differentiating patients with BS from those with ABS.

    BACKGROUND: It has been reported that recording electrocardiograms (ECGs) in the 3rd intercostal space (ICS) is one method that can be used for detecting Brugada syndrome; however, the prevalence of Brugada-type ECGs recorded in the 3rd ICS and the usefulness of recording the ECG in the 3rd ICS in accordance with recently established electrocardiographic criteria is unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS: ECGs were recorded in both the 4th and 3rd ICS in 17 Brugada-type ECG patients (group A) and in 206 consecutive male subjects (group B). Brugada-type ECGs were divided into 3 types. In group A, the prevalence of type 1 ECG, which is a coved-type ECG with ST-segment elevation of >/=2 mm, increased from 23.5% to 64.7% when ECG was recorded in the 3rd ICS. The conversion to type 1 ECG was found to be related to induction of ventricular arrhythmia. In group B, the prevalence of Brugada-type ECG increased from 1.5% to 5.8% when the ECG was recorded in the 3rd ICS. CONCLUSIONS: Recording the ECG in the 3rd ICS is useful for identifying high-risk patients with Brugada-type ECG and for detecting concealed Brugada-type ECG.

    OBJECTIVES: We administered pilsicainide chloride, a class Ic pure sodium channel blocker, to patients with Brugada syndrome (BS) and evaluated the occurrence of ventricular arrhythmia (VA) and T-wave alternans (TWA). BACKGROUND: Ventricular arrhythmia and TWA are sometimes induced by a sodium channel blocker challenge test in BS patients, but the significance of the induced VA and TWA is not known. METHODS: Pilsicainide was administered to 65 patients with BS (10 symptomatic and 55 asymptomatic patients), and the occurrence of VA, TWA, and change of electrocardiogram were evaluated. Electrophysiologic study was performed in 57 patients, and the induction of VA by programmed electrical stimulation (PES) was evaluated. RESULTS: Ventricular arrhythmia was not induced by administration of pilsicainide in 55 patients (no-VA group). Administration of pilsicainide-induced VA in 10 patients (Pil-VA group) and polymorphic ventricular tachycardia in four patients. Pilsicainide-induced VA in 60% of the symptomatic patients but in only 7% of asymptomatic patients (p < 0.01). ST level, QTc, and indexes of cardiac conduction in the Pil-VA group were not different from those in the no-VA group. Ventricular fibrillation was induced by PES in 67% of the patients in the Pil-VA group and in 33% of the patients in the no-VA group. In six cases, macroscopic TWA occurred in association with pilsicainide-induced VA, but TWA occurred in only one patient without pilsicainide-induced arrhythmia. CONCLUSIONS: Administration of a sodium channel blocker results in induction of not only ST-elevation but also VA and TWA in patients with BS.

    INTRODUCTION: It has been believed that electrophysiologic abnormality of the epicardial region of the right ventricular free wall may play an important role in arrhythmogenesis of phase 2 reentry in Brugada syndrome, but clinical evidence of the occurrence of ventricular arrhythmias at the right ventricular free wall has not been evaluated. In this study, we evaluated the site-specific inducibility of ventricular fibrillation (VF) and the origin of spontaneous premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) in patients with Brugada syndrome. METHODS AND RESULTS: Forty-five patients with Brugada-type ECG were enrolled in this study. Spontaneous PVCs were recorded in 9 patients. Programmed electrical stimulation (PES) was performed at the right ventricular apex (RVA), the free wall and septal region of the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT), and the left ventricle (LV). The inducibility of PVT/VF was evaluated at each ventricular site, and the origin of PVC was determined by pace mapping. Sustained VF was induced in 17 patients. VF was induced in all 17 patients by PES at RVOT. Although PES at the septal region of the RVOT induced VF in only 5 patients (29%), PES at the free-wall region of the RVOT induced PVT/VF in 13 patients (76%). PES at RVA induced VF in only 2 patients (12%), and PES at LV failed to induce any arrhythmic events. Ventricular pace mapping showed that 64% of PVCs occurred at the free-wall region of the RVOT, 18% at the septal region of the RVOT, 9% at RVA, and 9% at LV. CONCLUSION: VF in patients with Brugada syndrome frequently is induced at the free-wall region of the RVOT area. The origin of PVC appears to be related to the site of PVT/VF induction by PES.

    Ventricular fibrillation (VF) is induced in some asymptomatic patients with Brugada syndrome (BS), but the prognostic value of programmed electrical stimulation (PES) in such patients is controversial. The clinical characteristics of 41 asymptomatic BS patients, divided into 2 groups according to whether VF was induced by PES (inducible VF group: n=13, non-inducible VF group: n=28) were evaluated. ST levels in the right precordial leads were measured before and after administration of pilsicainide and the abnormal late potential (LP) was evaluated on the signal-averaged electrogram. The ST level at V(2) at baseline in the inducible VF group was significantly higher than that in the non-inducible VF group (p<0.05). Pilsicainide induced significant ST segment elevation in both groups and the ST level after pilsicainide in the inducible VF group was higher than that in the non-inducible VF group (p<0.01). LP was more frequent in the inducible VF group than in the non-inducible VF group. The criterion of ST level >0.15 mV at baseline with pilsicainide-induced additional ST elevation >0.10 mV and positive LP showed high sensitivity (92%) and specificity (89%) for detection of PES-induced VF in asymptomatic BS patients.

    OBJECTIVES: We sought to study atrial vulnerability in patients with Brugada syndrome. BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) often occurs in patients with Brugada syndrome, but atrial vulnerability in Brugada syndrome has not been evaluated. METHODS: The patient group consisted of 18 patients with Brugada syndrome. The control group consisted of 12 age- and gender-matched subjects who had neither organic heart disease nor AF episodes. The incidence and clinical characteristics of AF were evaluated in all 18 patients with Brugada syndrome, and an electrophysiologic study was performed in all 12 control subjects and in 14 of the 18 patients with Brugada syndrome. The atrial effective refractory period of the right atrium (RA-ERP), intra-atrial conduction time (conduction time from the stimulus at the right atrium to atrial deflection at the distal portion of the coronary sinus), duration of local atrial potential, and repetitive atrial firing (occurrence of two or more premature atrial complexes after atrial stimulation) were studied. RESULTS: Spontaneous AF occurred in 7 of the 18 patients with Brugada syndrome but in none of the control subjects. The RA-ERP was not different between the two groups. The intra-atrial conduction time was increased in the Brugada syndrome group versus the control group (168.4 +/- 17.5 vs. 131.8 +/- 13.0 ms, p < 0.001). The duration of atrial potential at the RA-ERP was prolonged in the Brugada syndrome group versus the control group (80.3 +/- 18.0 vs. 59.3 +/- 9.2 ms, p < 0.001). Repetitive atrial firing was induced in nine patients with Brugada syndrome and in six control subjects. Atrial fibrillation was induced in eight patients with Brugada syndrome but in none of the control subjects. In patients with Brugada syndrome without spontaneous AF, the intra-atrial conduction time and duration of atrial potential were also increased. CONCLUSIONS: Atrial vulnerability is increased in patients with Brugada syndrome. Abnormal atrial conduction may be an electrophysiologic basis for induction of AF in patients with Brugada syndrome.

    The technique of endocardial mapping was developed by the advancement of radiofrequency catheter ablation techniques. Because the catheter ablation has been performed various complex arrhythmias, simple-catheter based mapping methods was limited and multiple electrodes catheter mapping and computed mapping system were developed. The basket catheter has 64-unipolar electrodes and can records endocardial potential during arrhythmia for a moment. The electro-anatomical mapping system, CARTO system, can records entire circuit of arrhythmia and point the critical area, but it will expend more time for mapping and can not indicate for unstable arrhythmias. The new mapping systems, include noncontact mapping system and LocaLisa system, will be able to use in the near future in Japan.

    OBJECTIVES: We tried to record an epicardial electrogram directly, and we examined local electrograms before and after administration of a class IC anti-arrhythmic drug in patients with the Brugada syndrome. BACKGROUND: Electrical heterogeneity of the epicardium in the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) has been thought to be related to the Brugada syndrome. However, an epicardial abnormality has not been demonstrated in patients with the Brugada syndrome. METHODS: In five patients with a Brugada-type electrocardiogram (ECG), local unipolar electrograms were recorded at the epicardium and endocardium of the RVOT. To record the epicardial electrogram directly, we introduced an electrical guidewire into the conus branch (CB) of the right coronary artery. The duration of the local electrogram after termination of the QRS complex (DP) was measured before and after class IC anti-arrhythmic drug administration. The signal-averaged electrocardiogram (SAECG) was also obtained in all patients. RESULTS: A definite DP was observed at the epicardium, but not at the endocardium. After administration of a class IC anti-arrhythmic drug, the DP at the epicardium was prolonged from 38 +/- 10 ms to 67 +/- 24 ms. The late potential corresponding to the DP at the epicardium was observed in all patients on the SAECG. CONCLUSIONS: An epicardial electrogram can be recorded from the CB. Recording from the CB enables identification of an epicardial abnormality in patients with the Brugada syndrome. These abnormal electrograms may be related to a myocardial abnormality in the epicardium of patients with the Brugada syndrome.

    We investigated the relationship between the effects of ischemic preconditioning (IPC) and Ca2+ preconditioning (CPC) on reperfusion-induced arrhythmias. In the control group (noPC), Langendorff-perfused rat hearts were subjected to 5-min zero-flow global ischemia (I) followed by 15-min reperfusion (I/R). In ischemic preconditioning groups (IPC), the hearts were subjected to three cycles of 3-min global ischemia and 5-min reperfusion. In the CPC group, the hearts were exposed to three cycles of 3-min perfusion of higher Ca2+ (2.3 mmol/l Ca2+) followed by 5-min perfusion of normal 1.3 mmol/l Ca2+, and the hearts were then subjected to I/R. Verapamil was administered in several hearts of the IPC group (VR+IPC). Ventricular arrhythmias upon reperfusion were less frequently seen in the IPC and CPC groups than in the noPC and VR+IPC groups. IPC and CPC could attenuate conduction delay and enhance shortening of the monophasic action potential duration during ischemia. The ventricular fibrillation threshold measured at 1-min reperfusion was significantly higher in the IPC and CPC groups than in the noPC and VR+IPC groups. Verapamil completely abolished the salutary effects of IPC. These results demonstrate that Ca2+ plays an important role in the antiarrhythmic effect of IPC during reperfusion.<br>

    <p>Ischemic preconditioning has been acknowledged as a powerful method of decreasing ischemic injury. However, the antiarrhythmic mechanism of ischemic preconditioning during ischemia is unclear. We studied the effects of ischemic preconditioning on arrhythmias and cardiac electrophysiology during ischemia in Langendorff rat hearts (n = 44). In the non-preconditioned group (PC(-); n = 24), the hearts underwent 5-min zero-flow global ischemia without any prior ischemic preconditioning. In the preconditioned group (PC(+); n = 20), the hearts were preconditioned by three cycles of 3-min zero-flow global ischemia and 5-min reperfusion before undergoing 5-min global ischemia. Ischemic preconditioning reduced the incidence of ischemia-induced arrhythmias (PC(-); 38.9%, PC(+): 8.3%, p < 0.05), shortened monophasic action potential duration (MAPD, P < 0.05), attenuated conduction delay (conduction time; PC(-): 234.2%, PC(+): 173.4%, P < 0.05) and increased the ventricular fibrillation threshold. Although the shortening of MAPD in PC(-) hearts was not influenced by the presence or absence of arrhythmias, conduction time prolongation at 3-min was more obvious in PC(-) hearts with arrhythmia than in PC(-) hearts without arrhythmia (PC(-) with arrhythmia: 220.2%, PC(-) without arrhythmia: 190.7%, P < 0.05). We concluded that ischemic preconditioning could protect the rat hearts from ischemia-induced arrhythmias and postulated that attenuation of conduction delay during ischemia might be an important factor in the antiarrhythmic action of ischemic preconditioning.</p>

  • Evaluation of Autonomic Nervous Activity in Patients With Congenital Long QT Syndrome by an Analysis of RR Variability

    Congenital long QT syndrome (LQTS) is a rare hereditary disease characterized by a prolonged QT interval and lethal ventricular tachycardia (Torsades de Pointes: TdP). The pathogenesis of LQTS and the induction of TdP have been thought to be closely related to autonomic nervous abnormalities. We examined autonomic activity in 13 LQTS patients by analyzing heart rate variability from 24 h Holter ambulatory electrocardiographic recordings without medications. In a frequency-analysis of RR variability, we calculated the power in the low-frequency domain (LF) and the high-frequency domain (HF) over 24 h. The ratio of LF to HF (an index of sympathetic nervous activity) was lower in LQTS patients than in controls, whereas HF (an index of parasympathetic nervous activity) was higher. Moreover, LQTS patients with TdP had lower abnormal sympathetic nervous activity than those without TdP. The index of autonomic nervous activity obtained using this method could be useful for evaluating the severity in LQTS. (Jpn Circ J 1996; 60: 742 - 748)

    <p> 症例は79歳男性. 間質性肺炎加療中にステロイド精神病を発症し, 加療中に心室細動 (VF) となり自動体外式除細動器で蘇生された. 近医で冠動脈疾患は否定され, 完全右脚ブロックおよび軽度の左室肥大以外, 明らかな基礎疾患を認めず, 特発性VFなどが考えられた. 本人の精査希望なく, その後経過観察となっていたが, 経過中に心室頻拍を認めたため, 不整脈の原因精査目的に当科入院となった. 入院時の心電図で完全右脚ブロックを認めた. 電気生理学的検査で心室内に広範な低電位帯を認めたが, VFは誘発されなかった. 心筋生検でアミロイド沈着が認められ, 免疫染色からAAアミロイドーシスと診断された. 心アミロイドーシスによる心室細動と診断し, 植込み型除細動器植え込みを行った. 通常, 心アミロイドーシスは著明な心肥大や心不全により診断されるが, 今回, 心室細動を契機として診断された心アミロイドーシスの1例を経験したので, 若干の考察を加え報告する.</p>

    Background: Both nifekalant hydrochloride (NIF), a selective I-Kr blocker, and intravenous amiodarone (AMD), a multi-channel (including I-Kr blocking) blocker, have been reported to be efficacious for refractory arrhythmias. However, the optimal use of those antiarrhythmic drugs for refractory arrhythmia with severe heart failure has not been established. Intravenous AMD might be effective for arrhythmias refractory to NIF in patients with severe heart failure. Here, we report that intravenous amiodarone was effective in the treatment of nifekalant-resistant in a group of arrhythmia patients with severe heart failure. Methods: Eleven severe heart failure patients who had received intravenous AMD for treatment of NIF-resistant arrhythmias were included in this study, and retrospective analysis was performed. Clinical efficacy (terminative and preventive effects on arrhythmia) of intravenous AMD was evaluated. Results: All cases were emergent cases and had depressed left ventricular ejection fraction (30 +/- 13%). Clinical arrhythmias were ventricular fibrillation (VF) in four patients, ventricular tachycardia (VT) in six patients, and atrial fibrillation (AF) in one patient. NIF was administered to all patients by intravenous injection. After administration of NIF, VT/VF/AF was terminated in seven of the 10 patients, but a preventive effect was not obtained in any of the patients (NIF-resistance). Intravenous AMD (maintenance dose: 484 +/- 166 mg/day) was effective both in termination (80%) and in prevention (80%) of VT/VF events in those patients. It was also effective in termination (80%) and prevention (60%) of AF events refractory to NIF. During continuous AMD administration, no significant adverse effects or proarrhythmic effects were observed in any of the patients. Five patients died within one month, but there was no arrhythmic deaths. Conclusions: Intravenous AMD was effective in NIF-resistant lethal arrhythmias and was relatively safe in emergent cases with severe heart failure.

    A case is 77-year-old male. He was implanted dual chamber pacemaker due to complete atrioventricular block from left side in 1999. In 2006, he was referred to our hospital due to sustained ventricular tachycardia and left ventricular dysfunction. After several examinations, he was diagnosed as cardiac sarcoidosis and implanted cardiac resynchronization therapy with defibrillator (CRTD) from right side, because new lead could not pass between superior vena cava and innominate vein. In 2008, the scar on right side became reddish and swelling. We opened the scar, but we could not detect active infection. Then, we implanted new generator under right pectoral muscle. However, in 2011, he was diagnosed as pocket infection on right side without bacteremia and we extracted all 5 leads by Excimer laser. The pathogenic bacteria was Staphylococcus epidermidis. Because the patient was completely dependent on CRTD, single right ventricular pacing could not maintain hemodynamic. Then we employed dual chamber temporary pacing, which could maintain hemodynamic. Two weeks later, he was implanted new CRTD under left pectoral muscle. During follow up, any sign of device infection has not been appeared so far. © 2011, Japanese Heart Rhythm Society.

    18ヵ月女児。発熱、嘔吐、下痢が出現した。哺乳がなくなり、ぐったりしているために近医を受診し、心電図にて頻脈性不整脈を指摘され、紹介受診した。発熱・腸炎などの感染症状や全周性の左室壁運動低下、急性心不全、さらに心筋逸脱酵素の上昇や頻脈性不整脈といった所見から、急性心筋炎と診断した。頻脈性不整脈のコントロールが困難で、血行動態は次第に不安定となったため、鎮静ならびに人工呼吸管理を行い、経皮的心肺補助装置を留置した。アミオダロンを開始し、頻拍は速やかに停止し、洞調律への復帰を認めた。急性心筋炎の治療としては、γグロブリン大量療法とステロイドパルス療法を施行した。徐脈傾向とQT延長の遷延に対して恒久的ペースメーカーを植え込み、軽快退院した。

    症例は31歳、女性。動悸発作を伴うWPW症候群にて他院で2回アブレーションを施行するも不成功であった。心臓電気生理検査では後中隔副伝導路を介する順方向性房室回帰性頻拍が容易に誘発された。洞調律中の検討では、副伝導路の心室付着部位は中心静脈(MCV)の遠位部で冠静脈(CS)との分岐部より約25mm離れていた。また、MCV内では洞調律中および右室ペーシング中に心房波と心室波の間にケント電位が記録された。しかしMCV内ではインピーダンス高値のため通電は断念した。次に右室ペーシング中の最早期心房興奮部位を検討したところ、CS入口部底部からその右房側に比較的広範に認められた。心房端が広く存在することが予想され、同部の電気的隔離を目的としてまずCS入口部側を焼灼し、次に三尖弁-下大静脈峡部を線状焼灼すると、副伝導路の両方向性伝導途絶が初めて得られた。心房付着部の電気的隔離により根治に成功した心外膜側後中隔副伝導路の1例を報告する。(著者抄録)

    症例は61歳、男性。うめき声を伴う夜間の苦悶様呼吸およびBrugada型心電図を認め精査目的で当院入院。心エコー・両心室造影・心筋組織生検ではとくに明らかな異常を認めなかったが、加算平均心電図で心室遅延電位を認め、心臓MRIでは形態的異常を認めないものの、遅延造影delayed enhancementを心室中隔に認めた。心臓電気生理検査では、心室中隔などに局所電位のwideningが主体の異常電位を認め、プログラムペーシングで心室細動が誘発された。右室早期刺激による心室内伝導時間の検討でも伝導遅延の存在が示唆された。植込み型除細動器の植込みを行い、現在外来経過観察中である。心臓MRIにて遅延造影delayed enhancementを認めたBrugada症候群の報告はこれまでなく、心臓電気生理検査所見と併せて報告する。(著者抄録)

    特発性心室細動(IVF)には、Brugada症候群の心電図特徴を示さない例がある。原因や病態は複数と思われ、潜在性の心筋炎の可能性も考えられている。今回、当院で経験されたBrugada症候群が否定的なIVF12例について、その特徴を検討した。年齢は38±12歳、男性が8名(67%)。右室流出路起源の心室性期外収縮(PVC)から心室細動(VF)を起こした者が3名。連結期の短いPVCを認める者が3名。いずれも認めない者が6名であった。12誘導心電図で有意な所見は認めず、遅延電位は陰性。冠動脈に有意狭窄はなく、左室造影も正常。心臓電気生理学的検査(EPS)において、2例のみ右室の一部に軽度の異常電位を認めたが、その他の症例では認めていない。プログラム刺激による心室頻拍/心室細動(VT/VF)の誘発では、全例で持続するVT/VFは誘発されなかった。上記のことからIVFには器質的な異常は認めず、機能的な異常が原因となっている可能性が高いと考えられる。(著者抄録)
