Cardiac rehabilitation in patients with cardiovascular disease leads various hemodynamic parameters obtained using simple non-invasive tests to their appropriate levels
In conclusion, CR may lead various hemodynamic parameters obtained using simple non-invasive tests to their appropriate levels.
CONCLUSION: Functional electrical stimulation and ankle foot orthoses have an equally positive therapeutic effect on walking speed in non-progressive central nervous system diagnoses. The current randomized controlled trial evidence base does not show whether this improvement translates into the user's own environment or reveal the mechanisms that achieve that change. Future studies should focus on measuring activity, muscle activity and gait kinematics. They should also report specific device details, capture sustained therapeutic effects and involve a variety of central nervous system diagnoses. PMID: 29227525 [PubMe...
Summary BackgroundRegional ventricular pumping mechanisms in patients with volume‐loaded right ventricles (RV) are altered, but the cause is unknown. The aim was to determine whether these changes in ventricular pumping mechanisms are influenced by the RV dilatation itself or the aetiology behind it. MethodsSeventeen patients with atrial septal defects (ASD) and 10 healthy controls underwent cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) at rest and during dobutamine/atropine stress. Sixteen patients underwent transcutaneous ASD closure. Follow‐up CMR at rest was performed the following day. Thirty patients with RV overload d...

DEMENTIA and stroke risk could be increased by drinking diet soft drinks daily, researchers have claimed. The risk of developing Alzheimer ’s disease increased almost three times compared to those that don’t drink diet fizzy drinks.
[New Dawn] Geneva -Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), like heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and chronic lung disease, are responsible for 70% of all deaths. There is incontrovertible evidence that tobacco use, inactivity, unhealthy diets, and excessive alcohol consumption increase the odds of dying prematurely from an NCD.
Authors: Dimitropoulos G, Rahim SMZ, Moss AS, Lip GYH Abstract Introduction The field of anticoagulation has seen impressive progress over the last decade. The introduction of the Non Vitamin K Oral Anticoagulants (NOACs) has revolutionized practice surrounding thromboprophylaxis, treatment of thromboembolic disease and stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation (AF). However, the search for the "holy grail" of anticoagulation, an agent that combines optimal efficacy with minimal bleeding diathesis, continues. Areas covered In this paper we aim to summarize the current evidence from pre-clinical studies and...
