Most Popular Cardiology Technology Content in May 2019

Several electrophysiology advances presented as late-breaking studies at the 2019 Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) annual meeting in May made the top 25 list this month. Among these was the Parasym Salustim device ear clip that stimulates the vagus nerve, which was found to reduced AF burden compared with a sham procedure in the TREAT AF trial. Another innovation was first in human data on Medtronic's Extravascular ICD, which is its version of a subcutaneous ICD that does not require placing venous leads

With the advent and optimization of nuclear scintigraphy protocols using bone-avid radiotracers, cardiac amyloidosis caused by transthyretin protein (ATTR) can now be diagnosed noninvasively without a costly tissue biopsy. The radiotracer 99mTc-pyrophosphate (99mTc-PYP) binds to deposited ATTR amyloid fibrils in the myocardium and can be visualized using planar and SPECT imaging.

With the advent and optimization of nuclear scintigraphy protocols using bone-avid radiotracers, cardiac amyloidosis caused by transthyretin protein (ATTR) can now be diagnosed noninvasively without a tissue biopsy. The radiotracer 99mTc-pyrophosphate (99mTc-PYP) binds to deposited ATTR amyloid fibrils in the myocardium and can be visualized using planar and SPECT imaging. This is Figure 2, showing how SPECT imaging allows the reader to distinguish between blood pool activity (ventricular cavity, etc) and myocardial activity and identify regional myocardial differences in radiotracer uptake.
