Could HPV Be Tied to Heart Trouble in Women, Too?

Researchers found that among the women studied, those infected with "high-risk" strains of human papillomavirus (HPV) were somewhat more likely to develop heart disease or suffer a stroke over the next several years.

ConclusionsPatients with CMS were more likely to present with increased comorbidities. Patients with CMS undergoing CABG were at risk for worse short ‐term secondary postoperative outcomes and reduced long‐term survival. The data supports the need for further investigation for risk reduction surrounding operative revascularization.

AbstractCardiac troponin I (cTnI) is a regulatory protein with a high sensitivity and specificity for cardiac injury. Preoperative and postoperative elevations of cTnI are usually considered predictors of the mortality and morbidity. However, little is known about the relationship between the cTnI and postoperative course after the congenital heart disease (CHD) operation. Sixty-five consecutive patients who underwent cardiac surgery for CHD at our institution between March 2016 and January 2017 were included. The cTnI was measured after the operation. Also, the association between the cTnI and duration of the catecholamin...

This study examined the effect on PRU in Japanese coronary heart disease patients with long-term DAPT (aspirin  + clopidogrel) when switching from clopidogrel to prasugrel. Ninety-six patients were enrolled in this study. The median DAPT duration at enrollment was 1824.0 days. Twenty-three patients with PRU ≥ 208 at enrollment were randomly assigned into either continuing to receive clopidogrel (C ontinued Group;n = 11) or switching to prasugrel (Switched Group;n = 12). The primary endpoint was the rate of patients who achieved PRU

(Florida Atlantic University) New guidelines recommend aspirin use in primary prevention for people ages 40 to 70 years old who are at higher risk of a first cardiovascular event, but not for those over 70. Yet, people over 70 are at higher risks of cardiovascular events than those under 70. As a result, health care providers are understandably confused about whether or not to prescribe aspirin for primary prevention of heart attacks or strokes, and if so, to whom.

Conclusion: In a cross-sectional study of U.S. adults, we observed some positive associations of uAs and toenail As concentrations with biomarkers potentially relevant to CVD pathogenesis and inflammation, and evidence of a higher capacity to metabolize inorganic As was negatively associated with a marker of oxidative stress. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP2062 Received: 14 April 2017 Revised: 13 November 2017 Accepted: 15 November 2017 Published: 15 December 2017 Address correspondence to S.F.
