Authors: Karel M, Hechler B, Kuijpers M, Cosemans J Abstract In spite of current treatment strategies, myocardial infarction and stroke are still major causes of death worldwide. These events are triggered by damage of an atherosclerotic plaque, resulting in occlusive thrombus formation. Mouse studies have significantly contributed to our understanding of the mechanisms of atherogenesis and of thrombosis following plaque injury, but the extent to which the mouse serves as an accurate model of human disease is open to discussion. In this review, we provide a detailed overview and comparison of the described mouse mo...

Early-stage CAD can progress if undiagnosed and left untreated, leading to myocardial infarction (MI) that may induce irreversible heart muscle damage, resulting in heart chamber remodeling and eventual congestive heart failure (CHF). Electrocardiog...

CONCLUSIONS: CircRNA 010567 siRNA can improve the cardiac function, alleviate the MF, and inhibit the myocardial apoptosis, thereby further suppressing MI-induced MF, whose mechanism may be related to the inhibition on the TGF-β1 signaling pathway. PMID: 31957851 [PubMed - in process]

This study may be the first to provide details regarding the relationship between cell phone use and head and neck injuries. However, it had some significant limitations. Keep in mind that the study focused on head and neck injuries. People with multiple injuries or more serious injuries (such as a heart attack or an ankle fracture) might not have been included in the count. Individuals who sought care at their doctor’s office or urgent care centers would also be excluded from this study. In addition, information about the circumstances of an injury can be incomplete. Embarrassment or concerns about legal liability m...

By ANISH KOKA, MD Mr. Smith has a problem.  He can’t see.  Even this cardiologist knows why.  The not so subtle evidence lies in the cloudy lens in front of his pupils.  He is afflicted with cataracts that obstruct his vision to the point he can’t really do his job refurbishing antique furniture safely.  His other problem is that he hates doctors. He hasn’t had reason to see one for more than a decade.  He’s 68, takes no medications, smokes a pack of cigarettes a day, and is a master of one word answers. He’s in my office because he needs a medical eval...
