Advanced myocardial tissue characterisation by a multi-component CMR protocol in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

Objectives Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients are at increased risk of suffering from adverse cardiovascular events. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) mapping techniques might be appropriate tools to complement late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) for the assessment of myocardial involvement. This study aimed to perform advanced myocardial tissue characterisation in RA patients ...

T1 and T2 mapping for evaluation of myocardial involvement in patients with ANCA-associated vasculitides

Background Myocardial involvement in AAV patients might be silent, presenting with no or nonspecific symptoms, normal ECG, and preserved left-ventricular ejection fraction (LV-EF). Since up to 50% of deaths in these patients may be due to myocardial involvement, a reliable diagnostic tool is warranted. In contrast to LGE-CMR, which has its strengths in detecting focal inflammatory ...

Evaluation of myocardial involvement in patients with connective tissue disorders: a multi-parametric cardiovascular magnetic resonance study

Background Severe arrhythmias or heart failure may be surrogates of myocardial involvement in patients with connective tissue disorders (CTD). However, most patients present with unspecific symptoms, normal ECG, and preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (LV-EF). Therefore, timely diagnosis by an accurate technique is crucial. Late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) cardiovascular ...

Impact of arrhythmia on diagnostic performance of adenosine stress CMR in patients with suspected or known coronary artery disease

Background The diagnostic performance of adenosine stress cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) in patients with arrhythmias presenting for work-up of suspected or known CAD is largely unknown, since most CMR studies currently available exclude arrhythmic patients from analysis fearing gating problems, or other artifacts will impair image quality. The primary aim of our study was ...

Impact of long-term steroid therapy on epicardial and pericardial fat deposition: a cardiac MRI study

Background Increased cardiac fat has been identified as a risk factor for coronary artery disease. Metabolic syndrome is associated with increased cardiac fat deposition. Steroids are known to imitate some effects of metabolic syndrome and are frequently used in patients with rheumatic disorders. Primary aim was to evaluate the impact of long-term steroid use on cardiac fat ...

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance risk stratification in patients with clinically suspected myocarditis

Background The diagnosis of myocarditis is challenging due to its varying clinical presentation. Since myocarditis can be associated with significant 5-year mortality, and postmortem data show myocarditis in almost 10% of all adults suffering sudden cardiac death, individual risk stratification for patients with suspected myocarditis is of great clinical interest. We sought to ...

Comparison of exercise electrocardiography and stress perfusion CMR for the detection of coronary artery disease in women

BackgroundExercise electrocardiography (ECG) is frequently used in the work-up of patients with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD), however the accuracy is reduced in women. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) stress testing can accurately diagnose CAD in women. To date, a direct comparison of CMR to ECG has not been performed.Methods and resultsWe prospectively enrolled ...
