Triplixam is a fixed dose combination of three well known antihypertensive agents, with complementary activities, to control blood pressure in patients with arterial hypertension: perindopril, an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, indapamide, a diuretic whith thiazide-like effects but also specific properties, and amlodipine, a long-acting calcium antagonist of the dihydropyridine family. The potential synergic action allows better control of blood pressure with once daily administration, while limiting the incidence of adverse events. Various presentations with different dosages are available to facilitate individualized therapy. Warnings and precautions for use of every molecule should of course be respected. Such a fixed dose combination should contribute to limit clinical inertia and to improve therapeutic compliance. [less ▲]

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia encountered in clinical practice. In its non valvular form, it appears as a disorder of the aged. Surprisingly, its incidence and prevalence have constantly been on the rise over the last decades to the extent that some authors nowadays call this phenomenon an "emerging epidemic". The reasons for that proliferation are not entirely elucidated. Obesity, which has simultaneously and similarly increased in frequency, might have played a significant role. AF is frequently pauci-symptomatic in the aged and can easily go unrecognized. Yet, it entails a higher mortality rate, carries a significant risk of thrombo-embolic events, in particular strokes, and may lead to heart failure. We shall briefly review the current epidemiologic aspects of AF and evoke the possible role of obesity. We shall then discuss the therapy of this disorder with a particular attention to the new oral anticoagulants. [less ▲]

Heart failure in the elderly represents a major public health problem.In this population, the general objective of therapy, defined by current guidelines, does not differ from that proposed for younger patients: the aims are to decrease symptoms, to improve quality of life, to decrease hospitalizations, and to increase survival. However, in this category of patients, respect for autonomy and quality of life remains a priority, and requires a personalized approach because of the geriatric characteristics of many patients.

Standards for echocardiographic laboratories were proposed by the European Association of Echocardiography (now the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging) 7 years ago, to raise standards of practice and improve the quality of care. Criteria and requirements were published at that time for transthoracic, transoesophageal, and stress echocardiography. This paper reassesses and updates the quality standards to take account of experience and the technical developments of modern echocardiographic practice. It also discusses quality control, the incentives for laboratories to apply for accreditation, the re-accreditation criteria, and the current status and future prospects of the laboratory accreditation process.

The Imaging Task Force appointed by the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) identified the need to develop appropriateness criteria for the use of cardiovascular imaging in heart failure as a result of continuously increasing demand for imaging in diagnosis, definition of aetiology, follow-up, and treatment planning. This article presents the report of literature review performed in order to inform the process of definition of clinical indications and to aid the decisions of the appropriateness criteria voting panel. The report is structured according to identified common heart failure clinical scenarios. [less ▲]

The assessment of myocardial function in the context of valvular heart disease remains highly challenging. The myocardium deforms simultaneously in 3 dimensions, and global left ventricular (LV) function parameters such as volume and ejection fraction may remain compensated despite the changes in myocardial deformation properties. Current guidelines recommend valve replacement/repair in the presence of symptoms or reduced LV ejection fraction, but the resolution of symptoms or recovery of LV function post-surgery may not be reliably predicted. A wealth of evidence currently suggests that LV dysfunction is frequently subclinical despite normal ejection fraction. It may precede the onset of symptoms and portend a poor outcome due to progressive myocardial remodeling and dysfunction during the post-operative period. The advent of novel tissue-tracking echocardiography techniques has unleashed new opportunities for the clinical identification of early abnormalities in LV function. This review gathers and summarizes current evidence regarding the use of these techniques to assess myocardial deformation in patients with valvular heart disease. [less ▲]

Résumé : L’étude rapportée avait pour but de quantifier la réserve contractile ventriculaire gauche (VG) et d’évaluer son utilité pour la stratification du risque chez les patients asymptomatiques avec insuffisance mitrale (IM) primaire. Une échocardiographie au repos et à l’effort, incluant le suivi des marqueurs acoustiques, a été effectuée chez 115 patients consécutifs, présentant une IM primaire modérée ou sévère.La réserve contractile du VG est définie comme une augmentation induite par l’effort de la fraction d’éjection VG ≥ 4% ou de la déformation longitudinale VG ≥ 2%. La réserve contractile VG est absente dans approximativement la moitié de la population. Cette absence est un facteur prédictif indépendant d’événement cardiaque, s’il est évalué par les changements induits par l’effort de la fonction longitudinale VG, mais pas ceux de la fraction d’éjection VG.

AIMS: The management of asymptomatic patients with mitral regurgitation (MR) remains controversial. Exercise-induced pulmonary hypertension (ExPHT) was recently reported as a strong predictor of rapid onset of symptoms. We hypothesised that ExPHT is a predictor of postoperative cardiovascular events in patients with primary MR. METHODS AND RESULTS: One hundred and two patients with primary MR, no or mild symptoms (New York heart association (NYHA) </=2), and no LV dysfunction/dilatation, were prospectively recruited in 3 centres and underwent exercise-stress echocardiography. The presence of ExPHT was defined as an exercise systolic pulmonary arterial pressure >60 mm Hg. All patients were closely followed up and operated on when indication for surgery was reached. Postoperative events were defined as the occurrence of atrial fibrillation (AF), stroke, cardiac-related hospitalisation or death. Among the 102 patients included, 59 developed ExPHT (58%). These patients were significantly older than those without ExPHT (p=0.01). During a mean postoperative follow-up of 50+/-23 months, 28 patients (26%) experienced a predefined cardiovascular event. Patients with ExPHT had significantly higher rate of postoperative events (39% vs 12%, p=0.005); the rate of events was still higher in these patients (32% vs 9%, p=0.013), even when excluding early postoperative AF (ie, within 48 h). Event-free survival was significantly lower in the ExPHT group (all events: 5-year: 60+/-8% vs 88+/-5%, p=0.007, events without early AF: 5-year: 67+/-7% vs 90+/-4%, p=0.02). Using Cox multivariable analysis, ExPHT remained independently associated with higher risk of postoperative events in all models (all p</=0.04). CONCLUSIONS: ExPHT is associated with increased risk of adverse cardiac events following mitral valve surgery in patients with primary MR. [less ▲]

Echocardiography is one of the most powerful diagnostic and monitoring tools available to the modern emergency/critical care practitioner. Currently, there is a lack of specific European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging/Acute Cardiovascular Care Association recommendations for the use of echocardiography in acute cardiovascular care. In this document, we describe the practical applications of echocardiography in patients with acute cardiac conditions, in particular with acute chest pain, acute heart failure, suspected cardiac tamponade, complications of myocardial infarction, acute valvular heart disease including endocarditis, acute disease of the ascending aorta and post-intervention complications. Specific issues regarding echocardiography in other acute cardiovascular care scenarios are also described. [less ▲]
