Astudy published last month in theJournal of the American Heart Association electronic cigarette use concluded that vaping is a cause of heart attacks, raising the risk of having a heart attack about two-fold. One of the co-authors publicized the study on his blog under the title " More evidence thate-cigs cause heart attacks. "This was a cross-sectional study using data from the baseline survey of the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study collected in 2013-2014. The investigators examined the relationship between respondents reporting that theyever had a heart attack and that they currently va...

These 2 serial ECGs were texted to me recently.  They were recorded 12 minutes apart:" Hey Steve, 30-something with one week of chest pain, mostly right-sided, better with sitting up. " :What do you think?QTc's were 330 ms and 373 msThis is what I texted back:These look like they are a very pronounced case ofBenign T-wave Inversion.  I do not think this is acute occlusion myocardial infarction (OMI).  Get an emergent contrast echocardiogram.p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica}These are reasons why it does not look like OMI: 1. flat ST segment in V42. huge R-wave ...

In this study, we compared the effect of transplantation of isolated Sca-1+ cells and c-Kit+ cells with that of the crude CDCs (CrCDCs). Focusing on the differences in the ability for secretion of paracrine factors among 3 types of cells, we determined the effects of transplantation of these cells on cardiac intracellular signaling and mitochondrial function in rats with permanently ligated coronary arteries. We showed that the transplantation of these cells resulted in a preservation of the cardiac pump function and mitochondrial respiration at the 8th week after myocardial infarction. However, mitochondrial function in t...

Authors: Li XH, Hu YM, Yin GL, Wu P Abstract Background and objective: Atrial electrical remodelling (AER) was significantly associated with atrial fibrillation (AF) development. Polymorphisms in hyperpolarization activated cyclic nucleotide gated potassium channel 4 (HCN4) gene might be correlated with AER. In the present study, we explored the association of HCN4 polymorphisms (rs498005 and rs7164883) with lone AF risk in a Chinese Han population. Methods: In this case-control study, the Sanger sequencing method was utilized to genotype the HCN4 polymorphisms. Relative risk of AF was assessed by the χ2 test, ...
