Benign acute pericarditis is a common disorder. Recurrence is probably the most troublesome complication, characterized by a return of pericardial pain after recovery from an episode of typical acute pericarditis. Treatment of recurrence is often difficult and the guidelines issued by scientific societies remain vague. A number of investigators published enthusiastic reports on the efficacy of colchicine as adjuvant treatment of recurrent pericarditis and other authors suggested that colchicine should also be used as part of the treatment regimen of acute pericarditis. Colchicine is effective and safe and may be proposed as treatment of choice, especially in the idiopathic form. Treatment with corticosteroids exacerbates and extends the course of recurrent pericarditis and attenuates the efficacy of colchicine. [less ▲]

Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of mortality in the so-called industrial countries. An appropriate management is mandatory and its modalities should be known and applied by physicians. European and American recommendations are regularly published and updated. They are available on the web sites of the European Society of Cardiology (www.escardio.org), the American Heart Association (www.aha.org) and the American College of Cardiology (www.acc.org This article describes the recent therapeutic options of some cardiovascular diseases, especially coronary artery disease, valvular diseases, atrial fibrillation and implantable defibrillator, but is far to be exhaustive.

The Brugada syndrome, a genetically transmitted disease according to an autosomal mode with a variable penetrance, is responsible for sudden death secondary to polymorphic ventricular tachycardia. The diagnosis is based on a typical electrocardiographical paturn that combines a right bundle branch block with ST elevation in the right precordial leads. In high risk patients, the automatic implantable defibrillator has the unique capability to protect against the occurrence of ventricular arrhythmias. [less ▲]

Syncope remains a clinical challenge. Accurate history taking, physical examination and EKG are mainstays of the diagnosis work up. The most important parameter for prognosis and requiring aggressive management is a structural heart disease. Patient without cardiopathy presenting multiple episodes may be candidate for tilt testing and loop EKG recorder. [less ▲]

To question the possible proarrhythmic effects of cardiomyoplasty (CMP), six adult goats were submitted to rhythmic and electrophysiological (EP) study 15 days before and 8 months after a posteroanterior clockwise CMP procedure using Medtronic Cardiomyostimulator (CMS) (SP1005) and electrodes (SP5528) and completion of a progressive stimulation protocol. Pre and postoperative screening included a surface ECG, 24-hour Holter monitoring, high amplitude and filtered QRS averaging, and invasive EP study performed in the postoperative period with the CMS "ON" and "OFF." One-hour Holter recording with desynchronization of the CMS was obtained. Comparison of pre and postoperative ECG and rhythmic data showed no significant difference. High amplitude QRS averaging did not evidence meeting the usual criteria of late potentials. EP values were stable in both conditions and the aggressive EP program did not show evidence of increased susceptibility to arrhythmias. Asynchronous cardiomyostimulation did not induce arrhythmias. Our data strongly suggest that provided meticulous surgical technique is used, CMP does not significantly interfere with the electrical characteristics of the normal goat heart. The procedure, despite the disturbances it provokes, does not seem to be arrhythmogenic. The function of the CMS was always appropriate, even under stressful EP conditions. [less ▲]
