The data from the University of Iowa show black patients now have a 21.4 percent chance of surviving, compared to whites' 23.2 percent. That is up from 11 percent and 16 percent in 2000.

In conclusion, CAVD is highly prevalent. Long understood as a passive process, it is now known to be complex and one which involves pathophysiological mechanisms similar to those of atherosclerosis. Understanding these mechanisms could help to establish new therapeutic targets that might allow us to halt or at least slow down the progression of the disease.

This study didn't measure whether receiving the cardiosphere-derived cells extended lifespans, so we have a lot more work to do. We have much to study, including whether CDCs need to come from a young donor to have the same rejuvenating effects and whether the extracellular vesicles are able to reproduce all the rejuvenating effects we detect with CDCs." Cardiac and systemic rejuvenation after cardiosphere-derived cell therapy in senescent rats Cardiosphere-derived cell (CDC) therapy has exhibited several favourable effects on heart structure and function in humans and in preclinical models; however,...

CONCLUSIONS: Patients with severe MR are at high risk of in-hospital death. Patients with functional MR are likely to benefit from prompt PCI to the culprit artery, and for those with primary MR urgent surgery is life-saving. PMID: 28820545 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: There are many different factors affecting the need for perfusionists in the future. An increasing and aging population with a higher prevalence of CVD, an increased number of hospitals offering cardiovascular services and increased access to care increases the need for perfusion services. It is important for the perfusion profession to follow these changing trends in CVD and treatment in order to plan for the future. PMID: 28820030 [PubMed - in process]
