T wave peak-to-end interval is a measure of transmural dispersion of repolarization and accepted as a surrogate for increased ventricular arrhythmogenesis risk. Our findings show that ASD patients whose shunt ratio are ≥2.0 show increased risk for arrhythmias.
We aimed to define the relationship of preoperative N-terminal-pro-brain type natriuretic peptide (NT-pro-BNP) testing in routine practice of cardiac surgery with clinical, perioperative variables, surgical outcomes and complications in pediatric and adult cardiac surgery patients. In addition, we assessed relationship of NT-pro-BNP with EuroSCORE II in adult patients undergoing cardiac surgery.

The use of the laboratory criterion NT-proBNP makes it possible to objectively diagnose myocardial dysfunction with high analytical sensitivity and specificity; nevertheless, it is always necessary to compare complaints and Echo-CG data with NT-proBNP data.
Worldwide spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) caused overwhelming mortality rate during preceding half of the year 2020. Although coronavirus infection was known for mostly respiratory tract involvement, novel COVID-19 pandemic showed excessive cardiac mortality and arrhythmic complications. We aimed to summarize current literature and emphasize on underlying pathological mechanisms and global point of view to coronavirus and arrhythmia relationship.
We present here the case of acute coronary syndrome (ST elevation myocardial infarction) with total occlusion of right coronary artery successfully treated with PCI and stenting during COVID-19 pandemics.
