We present a unique case of a 42-year-old gentleman with newly diagnosed Graves’ disease and isolated right ventricular failure. Extensive evaluation to include echocardiogram and cardiac catheterization were negative for significant pulmonary hypertension or coronary artery disease as potential etiologies. Hyperthyroid induced vasospasm is a rare but reported clinical entity that serves to be a clinical and diagnostic dilemma.
Coronary artery, vasospasm, hyperthyroidism, ventricular failure.

Explaining Sex Differences in Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy Outcome
European Journal of Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology. 2020;6(1):17-23 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/EJAE.2020.6.1.17
Over the past years, several reports have drawn attention to the need to consider sex-specific differences in cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT). Most importantly, there is growing concern on the underrepresentation of women in CRT landmark trials which laid the foundation for present guidelines. Patients with symptomatic heart failure, reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) ≤35% […]
Quantification of Seasonal Variation in Daily Physical Activity in Individuals with Heart Failure and Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator/Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy Devices
Heart International. 2019;13(2):31–7
In individuals with heart failure (HF) who also have implanted cardioverter defibrillators and/or cardiac resynchronisation therapy (ICD/CRT) devices, low daily physical activity (PA) levels lead to increased risk of mortality, poor aerobic capacity and lower health-related quality of life.1 Improving daily PA in these individuals may, therefore, be an important clinical endpoint; however, designing interventional […]

We report the case of a 44-year-old woman with a history of chronic heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) due to ischemic cardiomyopathy (New York Heart Association [NYHA] class II). In 2010, she had a myocardial infarction with thrombotic occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery, alleged in the context of an essential thrombocythaemia. […]
