Long term follow-up of quadruple valve replacement for carcinoid heart disease

Mujtaba Syed Saleem , Shaw James , Clark Stephen

Introduction Carcinoid heart disease most frequently involves the tricuspid or, more rarely, the pulmonary valve and presents with right heart failure as 5-HT is metabolized by the lung. Left-sided valve involvement is quite rare. We describe our experience of 3 patients presenting with heart failure secondary to carcinoid heart disease affecting all four cardiac valves. There are only four previous isolated case reports in the literature. Methods All th...

A 33-year-old woman with type 1 diabetes and autoimmune AddisonÂ’s disease conceived in September 2021 following careful preconception counselling. The patient had a history of recurrent, severe hypoglycaemia requiring intensive care admission and had previously received two allogenic islet cell transplants (January 2020 and November 2020). The patient had no severe hypoglycaemia following transplantation, although she continued to experience overnight hypoglycaemia, while...

Introduction: Subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) is recognised as an increased risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Low number of circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPC), defined as mononuclear cells, expressing endothelial (vascular endothelial growth factor receptor, VEGFR-2) and stem cell (CD-34, CD-133) markers is associated with CVD. Our aim was to identify whether reduced EPC number might contribute to increased CV risk in subclinical and overt hypothyroidism (Hy)...
