Peripartum cardiomyopathy with co-incident preeclampsia: a cohort study of clinical risk factors and outcomes among commercially insured women

ConclusionPreeclamptic women with risk factors for PPCM and women with pePPCM at increased risk of MACE should be followed closely. Further studies are required to determine whether preeclampsia affects the long-term prognosis of women with PPCM.

For many women who want to defer having children, embryo pooling is a very viable strategy . We can create embryos when they are young, and then transfer these when they are ready to start their family. This way, they don't need to worry about the impact their ticking biological clock will have on their fertility !This option allows us to collect many embryos , freeze them, and then transfer them back one at a time after thawing them.The question , however , is how many embryos is the right amount to pool? Is it okay if we have just two or three ? Or should we repeat the IVF cycle until we have at least four?Obviously the ...

(European Society of Cardiology) Elderly patients with heart failure who see a pharmacist once a week are more likely to take their tablets and be active in daily life, according to late breaking results from the PHARM-CHF randomised controlled trial presented today at Heart Failure 2019, a scientific congress of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).

(European Society of Cardiology) Drug therapy for patients with stable heart failure can be simplified by stopping diuretics, according to late breaking results from the ReBIC-1 trial presented today at Heart Failure 2019, a scientific congress of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). 'Heart failure patients have many pills to take for their heart failure and for comorbidities such as diabetes and hypertension,' said principal investigator Dr Luis E. Rohde.

Van Iterson, Thomas P. OlsonABSTRACTBackgroundPrevious work has shown sex-related differences in cardiopulmonary responses in heart failure (HF) patients; however, sex differences following heart transplant (HTx) have not been examined. Thus, we hypothesized women would demonstrate lower peak oxygen uptake (VO2peak), but similar ventilatory efficiency (VE/VCO2 slope) compared to men prior to HTx. Furthermore, we hypothesized that following HTx, ...

ChanAbstractChronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with premature cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Traditional Framingham risk factors contribute partially to the malignant form of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in CKD. Uremic specific risk factors including: chronic inflammation, retention of uremic toxins and abnormal bone mineral metabolism have independently been linked to the pathogenesis of premature vascular aging, atherosclerosis, and CVD. This review will explore the mechanisms by w...

AbstractObjectiveOur goal was to determine if whole blood viscosity (WBV) can be used to predict the risk of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc).MethodsPatients with SSc were analyzed. Out of 107 patients, 26 patients, found to have confirmed diagnosis of PAH, were classified as those with (n = 26, PAH group) and without PAH (n = 81, non-PAH group). We calculated estimated WBV at both high (HSR) and low shear rates (LSR) from hematocrit and total serum protein levels.ResultsTotal protein levels were significantly higher and the anti-centromere antibody (AC...
