Dr M. Jacobs (Baltimore, Md). The Norwood procedure, the most commonly performed open operation in the neonatal age group, was developed approximately 40  years ago by Dr William Norwood. This operation has probably been the subject of as many or more investigations or reports than any other operation for congenital heart disease, yet Dr Mascio and colleagues stated accurately in their article that the principles of the Norwood operation remain esse ntially the same today as when Norwood first conceived it.

BOSTON (CBS) – Don’t let your vacation time go to waste. A new study out of Syracuse University provides “medical proof” that vacation is good for your heart. According to experts, vacation time is available to nearly 80-percent of full-time employees but fewer than half take all the time allotted. So researchers studied 63 workers eligible for paid vacation and found that people who vacation more frequently in the past 12 months have a lower risk of metabolic syndrome, a collection of risk factors for heart disease like high blood pressure, high blood sugar and high cholesterol. In fact, the risk f...

The American Heart Association and the FDA recommend that we all eat at least 25 grams of dietary fiber per day. But what is it, how do we know how much we’re eating, and where did that number come from, anyway? What are the types of fiber? Dietary fiber is a good carbohydrate, also known as roughage, found in plant foods (not supplements). There are two kinds, soluble or insoluble, and both are really good for us. Soluble fiber becomes a thick gel in our intestines, which slows digestion (which keeps blood sugars from spiking) and traps fats so they can’t all be absorbed (which lowers cholesterol levels). Sour...

It is well known that the most commonly available forms of stem cell therapy produce benefits via signaling on the part of the transplanted cells, which soon die, rather than via any sort of integration of these cells into tissues. These treatments use varieties of what are called mesenchymal stem cells, which is actually a poorly defined, broad category. One clinic's mesenchymal stem cells are usually meaningfully different from those of the next. Nonetheless, these therapies fairly reliably reduce chronic inflammation. This can allow for improved regeneration in patients, but that outcome is much less reliable in practic...

(Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging) Research presented at the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging's 2019 Annual Meeting draws a strong link between severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and impaired coronary flow reserve, which is an early sign of the heart disease atherosclerosis. Using 13N-ammonia positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT), researchers were able to noninvasively evaluate coronary microvascular function in OSA patients and use their findings to predict cardiovascular disease risk.

(Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation) Chronic diseases, such as stroke, ischemic heart disease, and lung cancer, now represent the leading causes of premature death in China, according to a new scientific study. The rise in non-communicable diseases reflects declines in maternal and child mortality over nearly three decades, largely the result of economic growth and increasing levels of education. In addition, China has instituted national programs targeting infectious diseases.

AbstractObjectivesWe created a Traditional Japanese Diet Score (TJDS), and to clarify the relationship between TJDS and obesity, ischemic heart disease (IHD), and healthy life expectancy (HALE).DesignEcological studySettingFood (g/day/capita) and energy (kcal/day/capita) supply was determined using the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations Statistics Division database. The sum of characteristic traditional Japanese foods (beneficial food components in the Japanese diet: rice, fish, soybeans, vegetables, eggs, and seaweeds; food components rarely used in the Japanese diet: wheat, milk, and red meat) was di...

ConclusionIn a real-world setting, no benefit was evident for patients with non-ischemic cardiomyopathy and reduced left ventricular ejection fraction by adding ICD therapy in a short-term follow-up of 12  months in contrast to patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy.Graphic abstract
