Epoxyeicosatrienoic acid analog EET-B attenuates post-myocardial infarction remodeling in spontaneously hypertensive rats

In conclusion, these findings suggest that EET analog EET-B has beneficial therapeutic actions to reduce cardiac remodeling in SHR subjected to MI.

One of the earliest Cochrane Reviews on high blood pressure was first published in 1998, investigating treatments for the elderly. It was substantively updated for a second time in June 2019 and we asked the lead author, Vijaya Musini, from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver Canada to tell us about the evidence.High blood pressure or hypertension, which is defined as systolic blood pressure of 140 mm of mercury or more, or diastolic blood pressure of 90 mm of mercury or more, increases with age, particularly in those over 60. It raises the risk of heart attack and stroke, with systolic hypertension, which is m...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewMany forms of heart disease result in the essentially irreversible loss of cardiomyocytes. The ability to promote cardiomyocyte renewal may be a promising approach to reverse injury in diseased hearts. The purpose of this review is to describe the impact of cardiomyocyte cell cycle activation on cardiac function and structure in several different models of myocardial disease.Recent FindingsTransgenic mice expressing cyclin D2 (D2 mice) exhibit sustained cardiomyocyte renewal in the adult heart. Earlier studies demonstrated that D2 mice exhibited progressive myocardial regeneration in experimental m...

In this study, researchers studied 438,952 participants in the UK Biobank, who had a total of 24,980 major coronary events - defined as the first occurrence of non-fatal heart attack, ischaemic stroke, or death due to coronary heart disease. They used an approach called Mendelian randomisation, which uses naturally occurring genetic differences to randomly divide the participants into groups, mimicking the effects of running a clinical trial. People with genes associated with lower blood pressure, lower LDL cholesterol, and a combination of both were put into different groups, and compared against those without thes...

Background: Medicare’s Hospital Readmission Reduction Program (HRRP) penalizes hospitals with elevated 30-day readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), heart failure (HF), or pneumonia. To reduce readmissions, hospitals may have increased referrals to skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) and home health care. Research Design: Outcomes included 30-day postdischarge utilization of SNF and home health care, including any use as well as days of use. Subjects included Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries aged 65 years and older who were admitted with AMI, HF, or pneumonia to hospitals subject to the HRR...

AbstractAtrial high rate episodes (AHREs), also termed, subclinical atrial tachyarrhythmias or subclinical atrial fibrillation (AF) are an important cardiovascular condition. Advancement in implantable cardiac devices such as pacemakers or internal cardiac defibrillators has enabled the continuous assessment of atrial tachyarrhythmias in patients with an atrial lead. Patients with device-detected AHREs are at an elevated risk of stroke and may have unmet anticoagulation needs. While the benefits of oral anticoagulation for stroke prevention in patients with clinical AF are well recognised, it is not known whether the same ...

This study aimed to investigate the effects of exercise training at different intensities in rats with HF. Methods. Rats underwent myocardial infarction or sham operations and were divided into three subgroups: sedentary, moderate intensity, or high intensity. The impact of HF and 6 weeks of exercise training on energy metabolism was evaluated by 31P magnetic resonance spectroscopy and mitochondrial respirometry. The concentrations of PCr, ATP, and Pi were quantified by magnetic resonance spectroscopy. VO2max was measured by treadmill respirometry. Results. Exercise training increased VO2max in sham and HF. PCr/ATP ratio w...
