Even a modestly increased blood glucose level at hospitalization for acute heart failure is a significant prognostic indicator for early all-cause and cardiovascular (CV)

Even a modestly increased blood glucose level at hospitalization for acute heart failure is a significant prognostic indicator for early all-cause and cardiovascular (CV) mortality as well as de novo diabetes in those with no prior diabetes, suggested a new study published online January 7 in the European Heart Journal.

Consuming more whole-grain foods may be linked with a decreased risk of dying, mainly from cardiovascular disease (CVD)

Consuming more whole-grain foods may be linked with a decreased risk of dying, mainly from cardiovascular disease (CVD), but not from cancer, reported a long-term study of more than 100 000 American healthcare professionals, published online January 5 in JAMA Internal Medicine.

Women who work rotating night shifts for 5 years or more may be at increased risk of all-cause and cardiovascular disease mortality

Women who work rotating night shifts for 5 years or more may be at increased risk of all-cause and cardiovascular disease mortality, while working such shifts for 15 years or more may increase the risk of lung cancer mortality, reported a new study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.

Adopting six healthy lifestyle behaviors could avert about 73% of coronary heart disease cases among women over 20 years, and 46% of diabetes, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia,

Adopting six healthy lifestyle behaviors could avert about 73% of coronary heart disease cases among women over 20 years, and 46% of diabetes, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia, suggests an analysis of about 69 000 participants followed for 20 years in the Nurses’ Health Study II (NHS II). The findings are published in the January 6/13, 2015 …

A new study has found that some obese people do not have the metabolic changes usually associated with diabetes

A new study has found that some obese people do not have the metabolic changes usually associated with diabetes, heart disease and stroke, thus suggesting that these individuals may be protected from these metabolic abnormalities when gaining weight. The study is published in The Journal of Clinical Investigation.

Patients who were obese before developing heart failure had better survival rate than normal weight patients with the same condition

Patients who were obese before developing heart failure had better survival rate than normal weight patients with the same condition, suggested a new study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

A 3-year serial optical coherence tomography study demonstrated less luminal loss at the edges than luminal loss within the scaffold after implantation of an everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold.

A 3-year serial optical coherence tomography study demonstrated less luminal loss at the edges than luminal loss within the scaffold after implantation of an everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold. The analysis focused on 40 patients from the ABSORB Cohort B study who were implanted with an 18-mm everolimus eluting bioresorbable scaffold (Absorb BVS, Abbott Vascular).

Researchers from the University of Oxford, say developing drugs to target and reduce the amount of fractalkine could be a new way to slow furring of the arteries

Researchers from the University of Oxford, say developing drugs to target and reduce the amount of fractalkine could be a new way to slow furring of the arteries, known as atherosclerosis, and reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes. Their findings are published in the journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology.

“obesity paradox” by following obese and non-obese heart failure patients for more than a decade

Patients who were obese before developing heart failure lived longer than normal weight patients with the same condition according to a new study in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology that examined the “obesity paradox” by following obese and non-obese heart failure patients for more than a decade.

A third-generation transcatheter heart valve, Sapien 3 transcatheter valve, addresses issues with earlier valves and was associated with improved ease of use, accuracy of positioning and paravalvular sealing (J Am Coll Cardiol. 2014;64:2235-2243).

A third-generation transcatheter heart valve, Sapien 3 transcatheter valve, addresses issues with earlier valves and was associated with improved ease of use, accuracy of positioning and paravalvular sealing (J Am Coll Cardiol. 2014;64:2235-2243). The rates of mortality and stroke with transfemoral access are among the lowest reported and support further evaluation as an alternative to …
