This report describes the clinical characteristics, biochemical findings and molecular analysis of SLC25A20 gene of patients with CACTD in Guangdong. And our results show that the c.199-10T>G is likely the most common variant of CACTD in Guangdong population as it accounts for 83% (10/12) of the observed mutant alleles. Individuals with the c.199-10T>G genotype had a severe CACTD phenotype.

AbstractPurpose of the reviewAdvances in computing power and wireless technologies have reshaped our approach to patient monitoring. Medical grade sensors and apps that were once restricted to hospitals and specialized clinic are now widely available. Here, we review the current evidence supporting the use of connected health technologies for the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease in an effort to highlight gaps and future opportunities for innovation.Recent findingsInitial studies in connected health for cardiovascular disease prevention and management focused primarily on activity tracking and blood press...

Cardiovascular safety liabilities remain an important concern in drug development that impacts candidate attrition and may lead to adverse clinical events. These liabilities (as evidenced by various oncology drugs) span the spectrum of arrhythmias, contractile dysfunction, myocardial injury and infl

Authors: Chrysant SG Abstract INTRODUCTION: Magnesium is the 3rd most common intracellular ion after potassium and calcium and is an important element in the functions of the body, since it participates in more than 300 enzyme systems. It also, plays a significant role in the transport of calcium and potassium across the cell membranes and protects against cardiac arrhythmias and is useful for their treatment due to hypomagnesemia induced from the proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Areas covered: PPIs are used for the treatment of peptic ulcer disease (PUD) and gastroesophageal efflux disease (GERD), but have been asso...

Publication date: June 2019Source: IJC Heart &Vasculature, Volume 23Author(s): Dong-Yeon Kim, Zubin Wala, Saidul Islam, Rabiul Islam, Mihong AhnAbstractBackgroundIn rural areas of Bangladesh, the majority of patients with ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) have little access to reperfusion therapy. Even though thrombolysis can be an affordable life-saving treatment in a low income setting, there are few publications in regards to the clinical and socioeconomic features of STEMI with thrombolytic therapy in rural Bangladesh.MethodThe information of the patients who were admitted for STEMI between 2010 an...

AlloyAbstractSleep disturbance and respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) are well-known to be independently associated with depression. Yet, it remains unclear how sleep disturbance and impaired physiological regulation (indexed by RSA) may synergistically contribute to depression risk. The current study examined the relationship between sleep disturbance (duration, insomnia) on daily depressive symptoms, and whether RSA moderated this relationshi...

Conclusion. Contextual variables, and specifically the availability of stroke units, make a positive impact on individual variables that affect prognosis and mortality in ischemic stroke. Moreover, the determination of this impact is feasible through the use of structural equation methodology. We analyze the methodological and clinical implications of this type of study for hospital policies. Key words: Stroke; mortality; structural equation model; predictive model

AbstractThe automatic analysis of the electrocardiogram (ECG) begins, traditionally, with the detection of QRS complexes. Afterwards, useful information can be extracted from it, ranging from the estimation of the instantaneous heart rate to nonlinear heart rate variability analysis. A plethora of works have been published on this topic; consequently, there exist many QRS complex detectors with high-performance values. However, just a few detectors have been conceived that profit from the information contained in several ECG leads to provide a robust QRS complex detection. In this work, we explore the fusion of multi-chann...
