Background:In hypereosinophilic syndrome, eosinophils attack the tissues they infiltrate. Organs that are mostly affected include skin, lungs, and the gastrointestinal tract. Involvement of the cardiovascular system and brain carries significant morbidity and mortality. Here, we discuss a case of eosinophilic myocarditis, which presented as heart failure exacerbation.Case:A 69-year-old female with a history of recent liver transplant presented with acute respiratory failure. Her labs included elevated troponin of 12.3 ug/L (normal< 0.045 ug/L), NT-Pro-BNP 29,419 pg/mL (normal< 900 pg/mL)). She had extensive workup including TTE which showed newly reduced EF to 50%, coronary angiogram which revealed non-obstructive coronary artery disease, and right heart catheterization which showed elevated biventricular filling pressures (RA: 17 mmHg, PA mean: 33 mmHg, PCW: 20 mmHg).

Introduced more than 100 years ago by William Einthoven, Electrocardiograms (EKG) remain an essential tool for doctors in diagnosing a variety of conditions. An abnormal EKG remains part of the criteria for diagnosing and activating the response for ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI), one of the most important causes of mortality nationwide [1]. Interpretation of EKGs is an essential tool for any physician, especially in the field of internal medicine, often one of the first lines of defense for diagnosing EKG abnormalities. It is a skill that is learned during medical school and residency training [2]. Despite this, the diagnosis of life-threatening pathology on EKG remains suboptimal in trainees [3]. This poor performance may be attributed to a lack of a standard methodology of teaching EKGs across the

Background Transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR) is a treatment option for patients with 3+ or greater mitral regurgitation who cannot undergo mitral valve surgery. Outcomes in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end stage renal disease (ESRD) are unclear. We sought to evaluate the TMVR in‐hospital outcomes, readmission rates and its impact on kidney function. Methods Data from 2016 National Readmission Database was used to obtain all patients who underwent TMVR. Patients were classified by their CKD status: no CKD, CKD, or ESRD. The primary outcomes were: in‐hospital mortality, 30‐ and 90‐day readmission rate, and change in CKD status on readmission. Multivariable logistic regression analysis was used to assess in‐hospital, readmission outcomes and kidney function stage.

Premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) are one of the most commonly encountered arrhythmias and are ubiquitous in clinical practice, both in the outpatient and inpatient settings. They are often discovered incidentally in asymptomatic patients, however, can cause myriad symptoms acutely and chronically. Long thought to be completely benign, PVCs have been historically disregarded without pursuing any further evaluation. Newer data have revealed that a high burden of PVCs with specific characteristics can significantly increase a patient's risk of developing PVC-induced cardiomyopathy. The aim of this literature review is to provide further clarification on the identification of high-risk PVCs, subsequent workup, and the currently available treatment options. PVCs arise from an ectopic focus within the ventricles. Patients with PVCs can be either asymptomatic or have severe disabling symptoms. The diagnostic workup for PVCs includes electrocardiogram (ECG) and 24-h Holter monitor to assess the QRS morphology and its frequency. A transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) is done to look for structural heart disease and cardiomyopathy. Management of PVCs should be focused on identifying and treating the underlying causes, such as electrolyte abnormalities, substance use, and underlying structural heart disease. Beta-blockers are first-line therapy for symptomatic PVCs. Nondihydropyridine calcium channel blockers, classic antiarrhythmic agents, and amiodarone can be considered as second-line agents. Patients who are unable to tolerate medical therapy should undergo catheter ablation of the PVC focus to prevent PVC-induced …

Background: Currently, there is limited or no data demonstrating that vaping is associated with increased transmission or prevalence of coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19). Our study aims to investigate the relationship of vaping with the prevalence of COVID-19 infection across the United States and in the District of Columbia.Methods: COVID-19 case counts by state and the District of Columbia were obtained via the Worldometers website on 04/30/2020. Prevalence of COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents were calculated using estimated 2019 population data from the US Census Department. Age ranges analyzed were: high school age children, Ages 18-24, Ages 25-44, and Ages 45-65. Spearman correlation analysis was conducted to determine if the rate of vaping was correlated with a higher prevalence of COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population.Findings: The Spearman correlation analysis demonstrated that persons vaping between 18 years and 24 years of age had a correlation coefficient of 0· 278 with prevalence of COVID-19 infection (p= 0· 048). Vaping high school students had a correlation coefficient of 0· 153 with prevalence of COVID-19 (p= 0· 328). Persons vaping in the age group 25-45 years had a correlation coefficient of 0· 101 in association to COVID-19 prevalence (p= 0· 478). And finally, persons vaping between the age 45-65 years old had a correlation coefficient 0· 130 with respect to COVID-19 prevalence (p= 0· 364).Interpretation: Increased COVID-19 prevalence is associated with vaping in the adolescent population between ages 18 and 24.

DISCUSSION: Guidelines for diagnosis and management of MINOCA are still being researched. Differential diagnoses that must be ruled out before establishing a diagnosis of MINOCA include myocarditis, takotsubo and other cardiomyopathies, pulmonary embolism, and renal impairment. The etiologies of MINOCA include coronary dissection, plaque disruption, coronary spasm, microvascular dysfunction and coronary thrombus/embolus. There is limited evidence on how to manage MINOCA efficaciously. Management should be adjusted on an individual patient basis. Factors to incorporate when initiating therapy should include the patient’s clinical presentation, atherosclerotic risk factors and family history. Our patient was obese, current smoker with a known family history of CAD. There is lack of evidence whether to initiate DAPT therapy in patients with MINOCA due to the risk of adverse events from the …

Introduction This study’s objective was to compare the differences in the effects of intravenous esmolol and diltiazem on patients having atrial fibrillation with RVR. Methods The measured parameters were the number of hospital re-admissions, length of hospital stay, time taken for rate control, and side effects like hypotension and pacemaker use. This retrospective cohort study included all adult patients with A-fib with RVR treated with IV esmolol and diltiazem from an academic center between 2016-2018. Patients who were on rhythm control or required cardioversion within 24 hours were excluded. Categorical and continuous outcomes were compared with chi-square and t-tests respectively. Cox-regression was used for the length of hospital-stay and time taken for rate control and the hazard ratio was reported. For the number of hospital re-admissions, linear regression was used. Results Of 841 A-fib patients, the eligible sample size was 60 (diltiazem: 48 and esmolol: 12). The average time taken for rate control was 1654 ± 726 minutes for esmolol and 1072 ± 241 minutes for diltiazem, length of hospital-stay was 9 ± 2.16 days for esmolol and 7.98 ± 1.53 days for diltiazem, and the number of hospital re-admissions were 1.67 ± 0.31 for esmolol 2.69 ± 0.42 for diltiazem. A hazard ratio of esmolol with reference to diltiazem was 0.89 (CI: 0.45-1.76) for the time taken for rate control and 0.99 (CI: 0.50-1.97) for the length of hospital stay. 20.83% of patients were hypotensive on diltiazem and none on esmolol (p-value: 0.194). Conclusion Although observations based on our small unmatched retrospective study for the measured parameters showed a …
