  • The bottleneck stent model for chronic myocardial ischemia and heart failure in pigs

    • A large animal model of chronic myocardial ischemia and heart failure is crucial for the development of novel therapeutic approaches. In this study we developed a novel percutaneous one-and two-vessel model for chronic myocardial ischemia using a stent coated with a polytetrafluoroethylene tube formed in a bottleneck shape. The bottleneck stent was implanted in the proximal left anterior descending (LAD) or proximal circumflex artery (LCX), or in both proximal LCX and mid LAD 1 wk later (2-vessel model), and pigs were followed for 4-5 wk. Ejection fraction (EF), infarct size, collateral growth, and myocardial perfusion were assessed. Pigs were given antiarrhythmic medication to prevent sudden death. The occlusion time of the bottleneck stent and the timing of myocardial infarction could be modulated by the duration of antiplatelet medication. Fractional flow reserve measurements and positron emission tomography imaging showed severe ischemia after bottleneck stenting covering over 50% of the left ventricle in the proximal LAD model. Complete coronary occlusion was necessary for significant collateral growth, which mostly had occurred already during the first wk after the stent occlusion. Dynamic and competitive collateral growth patterns were observed. EF declined from 64 to 41% in the LCX model and to 44% in the LAD model 4 wk after stenting with 12 and 21% infarcted left ventricle in the LCX and LAD models, respectively. The mortality was 32 and 37% in the LCX and LAD models but very (71%) high in the two-vessel disease model. The implantation of a novel bottleneck stent in the proximal LAD or LCX is a novel porcine model of reversible myocardial ischemia (open stent) and ischemic heart failure (occluded stent) and is feasible for the development of new therapeutic approaches.

  • ESC Guidelines on diabetes, pre-diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases developed in collaboration with the EASD
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: European Heart Journal. - 0195-668X .- 1522-9645. ; 34:39, s. 3035-3087

    • This is the second iteration of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) joining forces to write guidelines on the management of diabetes mellitus (DM), pre-diabetes, and cardiovascular disease (CVD), designed to assist clinicians and other healthcare workers to make evidence-based management decisions. The growing awareness of the strong biological relationship between DM and CVD rightly prompted these two large organizations to collaborate to generate guidelines relevant to their joint interests, the first of which were published in 2007. Some assert that too many guidelines are being produced but, in this burgeoning field, five years in the development of both basic and clinical science is a long time and major trials have reported in this period, making it necessary to update the previous Guidelines.

  • Relative flow reserve derived from quantitative perfusion imaging may not outperform stress myocardial blood flow for identification of hemodynamically significant coronary artery disease
  • 2015
  • Ingår i: Circulation Cardiovascular Imaging. - 1941-9651 .- 1942-0080. ; 8:1
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • BACKGROUND: Quantitative myocardial perfusion imaging is increasingly used for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease. Quantitative perfusion imaging allows to noninvasively calculate fractional flow reserve (FFR). This so-called relative flow reserve (RFR) is defined as the ratio of hyperemic myocardial blood flow (MBF) in a stenotic area to hyperemic MBF in a normal perfused area. The aim of this study was to assess the value of RFR in the detection of significant coronary artery disease.METHODS AND RESULTS: From a clinical population of patients with suspected coronary artery disease who underwent oxygen-15-labeled water cardiac positron emission tomography and invasive coronary angiography, 92 patients with single- or 2-vessel disease were included. Intermediate lesions (diameter stenosis, 30%-90%; n=75) were interrogated by FFR. Thirty-eight (41%) vessels were deemed hemodynamically significant (>90% stenosis or FFR≤0.80). Hyperemic MBF, coronary flow reserve, and RFR were lower for vessels with a hemodynamically significant lesion (2.01±0.78 versus 2.90±1.16 mL·min(-1)·g(-1); P<0.001, 2.27±1.03 versus 3.10±1.29; P<0.001, and 0.67±0.23 versus 0.93±0.15; P<0.001, respectively). The correlation between RFR and FFR was moderate (r=0.54; P<0.01). Receiver operator characteristic curve analysis showed an area under the curve of 0.82 for RFR, which was not significantly higher compared with that for hyperemic MBF and coronary flow reserve (0.76; P=0.32 and 0.72; P=0.08, respectively).CONCLUSIONS: Noninvasive estimation of FFR by quantitative perfusion positron emission tomography by calculating RFR is feasible, yet only a trend toward a slight improvement of diagnostic accuracy compared with hyperemic MBF assessment was determined.

  • PET in Heart Failure - Methods and Applications
  • 2004
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Positron Emission Tomography (PET) permits regional myocardial perfusion, fibrosis and oxidative metabolism to be non-invasively quantified with radioactive tracers such as [15O]-water and [1-11C]-acetate. PET is an established research tool in congestive heart failure (CHF), a major cause of morbidity and mortality. However, as CHF is a syndrome that eventually affects all aspects of cardiac and systemic hemodynamic function, more clinically relevant information from a single PET scan is desirable. The aim of this thesis therefore was to develop and implement some new concepts in cardiac PET.A new method for the measurement of cardiac output with any tracer was validated in animal experiments and CHF patients. The early pulmonary retention of [1-11C]-acetate was inversely related to left ventricular (LV) function in animals and was directly proportional to lung water content and severity of LV diastolic dysfunction in patients.Eight patients with acute myocardial infarction were followed with serial PET from 3 hours to 3 weeks after trombolytic treatment. PET revealed that myocardial perfusion and the extraction and utilization of fuel substrates all decreased closer to the infarct centre. The rate of oxygen utilization within the infarct at 3 h predicted degree of myocardial fibrosis, pulmonary oedema and tissue viability at 3 weeks. Seventeen patients with CHF due to chronic ischemic cardiomyopathy and severely reduced LV function were evaluated with [1-11C]-acetate PET before and after coronary artery bypass surgery. There was a dramatic improvement in physical performance and symptoms, which was not correlated to the standard LV ejection indices. PET revealed that functional improvement was associated with improved LV loading conditions, reversed remodeling and homogenization of oxidative metabolism rather than increased output.

  • Reporting nuclear cardiology: a joint position paper by the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) and the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI).
  • 2015
  • Ingår i: European Heart Journal-Cardiovascular Imaging. - : Oxford University Press. - 2047-2412. ; 16:3, s. 272-279
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The report of an imaging procedure is a critical component of an examination, being the final and often the only communication from the interpreting physician to the referring or treating physician. Very limited evidence and few recommendations or guidelines on reporting imaging studies are available; therefore, an European position statement on how to report nuclear cardiology might be useful. The current paper combines the limited existing evidence with expert consensus, previously published recommendations as well as current clinical practices. For all the applications discussed in this paper (myocardial perfusion, viability, innervation, and function as acquired by single photon emission computed tomography and positron emission tomography or hybrid imaging), headings cover laboratory and patient demographics, clinical indication, tracer administration and image acquisition, findings, and conclusion of the report. The statement also discusses recommended terminology in nuclear cardiology, image display, and preliminary reports. It is hoped that this statement may lead to more attention to create well-written and standardized nuclear cardiology reports and eventually lead to improved clinical outcome.
