Late-breaking science announced for TVT 2019

(Cardiovascular Research Foundation) The Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) has announced that TVT 2019, the Structural Heart Summit, will feature four studies which will be presented as Late-Breaking Science on Friday, June 14th. TVT 2019 is a practical course featuring the latest research and state-of-the-art techniques for transcatheter aortic and mitral valve therapies. For more than 10 years, TVT has provided healthcare professionals with the latest advances, tools, and techniques for the treatment of valvular heart disease using nonsurgical procedures.

Authors: Ito M, Wada H, Sakakura K, Ibe T, Ugata Y, Fujita H, Momomura SI Abstract According to recent guidelines, a new category of patients with heart failure (HF) with mid-range left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) (HFmrEF) (LVEF = 40%-49%) has been defined. The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical characteristics and long-term outcomes of patients with HFmrEF. This was a single-center, retrospective, observational study in which we examined the clinical characteristics and outcomes of 494 consecutive patients with acute decompensated heart failure who were admitted to our institution betwe...

By analyzing single cell transcriptome of resident cardiac endothelial cells (ECs) in adult mouse hearts under both healthy and myocardial infarction (MI) settings, we provide molecular definitions of murine cardiac endothelial heterogeneity an...

Motile cilia provide propulsion, and immotile ones are enriched with receptors. Both are required to establish left-right identity in the developing embryo and are also implicated in a wide range of human diseases. Abnormalities in cilial function underlie heterotaxy congenital heart disease (CHD) occurring in individuals with laterality disturbance. Mitochondrial function and cellular energetics, through mTOR and autophagy, are now linked with cilial function, revealing new mechanisms and candidate genes for syndromic human disease. In the current issue of the JCI, Burkhalter et al. ask the question: Can mitochondrial dis...

About 1% of all newborns are affected by congenital heart disease (CHD). Recent findings identify aberrantly functioning cilia as a possible source for CHD. Faulty cilia also prevent the development of proper left-right asymmetry and cause heterotaxy, the incorrect placement of visceral organs. Intriguingly, signaling cascades such as mTOR that influence mitochondrial biogenesis also affect ciliogenesis, and can cause heterotaxy-like phenotypes in zebrafish. Here, we identify levels of mitochondrial function as a determinant for ciliogenesis and a cause for heterotaxy. We detected reduced mitochondrial DNA content in biops...

Did you know that tooth decay is the most common chronic disease of childhood? And that 40% of children have tooth decay by kindergarten? This is a big deal, not only because of the pain and infection it can cause, but also because children with tooth decay are more likely to miss school and have poorer grades — and because tooth decay is linked to a higher risk of many health problems later in life, including heart disease and premature birth. Tooth decay is simple to prevent, yet sadly, many families don’t take the steps that are needed. 1.   Don’t skip the fluoride. Fluoride is very helpful w...
