The incidence of congenital heart disease (CHD) is about 4 to 10 per 1000 live births. While severe forms of CHD are usually diagnosed in infancy or childhood, milder and more survivable CHD may first manifest in the adult or may be discovered incidentally on imaging studies performed for other reasons. It is important to identify CHD in adults to implement appropriate treatment and prevent complications such as progression of pulmonary hypertension and development of heart failure. The goals of this article are to illustrate the appearance on computed tomography of various forms of uncorrected CHD in adults and describe t...

Authors: Yokokawa T, Sugimoto K, Nakazato K, Misaka T, Oikawa M, Kobayashi A, Yoshihisa A, Yamaki T, Kunii H, Ishida T, Takeishi Y Abstract Background Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a progressive disease that leads to right-sided heart failure with electrocardiographic abnormalities. There are only a few reports about the effects of balloon pulmonary angioplasty for CTEPH on the electrocardiographic criteria of right ventricular hypertrophy. Objective To determine the effect of balloon angioplasty on electrocardiography in patients with CTEPH. Methods We evaluated electrocardiograms in 19 ...

Conclusions In this review, we analyzed mechanisms through which mitobolites, a distinct set of mitochondria-generated metabolites, can be released from mitochondria and then act as second messengers that contribute to cellular and organismal aging by regulating longevity-defining processes outside of mitochondria. Our analysis indicates that in eukaryotes across phyla, these second messengers of cellular aging exhibit the following common features: (1) they are produced in mitochondria in response to certain changes in the nutrient, stress, proliferation or age status of the cell; it remains unknown, however, what kind o...

ConclusionsThis study supports the hypothesis that DASH is beneficial in heart failure prevention within the individuals aged less than 75 years subgroup, an idea that to date was substantiated only by much smaller studies or in less diverse patient populations.

Disability adjusted life years (DALYs) are a statistical construct used in epidemiology to assess the harms caused by disease, particularly the chronic diseases of aging, as these are by far the greatest burden of disease that is inflicted upon the population as a whole. The costs of aging are huge, however they are measured. It is the greatest single cause of human suffering and death, and the economic effects of this constant destruction of human lives and capabilities are sized to match. The greatest good any of us can do in the world as it stands today is to work towards bringing aging under medical control. D...

Conclusion In summary, this is the first study to show that BFR exercise did not augment EPC response to exercise, and in fact blunted the EPC response to low load unilateral KE exercise in young, healthy males. Ethics Statement This study was carried out in accordance with the recommendations of Edinburgh Napier University Research and Ethics Governance Committee. The study was ethically approved by Edinburgh Napier University Research and Ethics Governance Committee. All participants gave written informed consent in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki. Author Contributions MR, RM, AP, CW, GF-J designed the s...

Worsening renal function (WRF), generally defined as increased serum creatinine levels>0.3 mg/dL (26.5 µmol/L), is a well-known predictor of adverse prognosis in patients with heart failure (HF) with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF).1-5 In hospitalized patients with HFrEF, WRF is associated with higher mortality and rehospitalization rates4, 5; nevertheless, aggressive decongestion, which achieves hemoconcentration, is associated with improved survival even in patients with WRF.6 On the other hand, compared to HFrEF, HF with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) has a different pathophysiology7, 8 and demonstrates ...
