Relationships Among Self-Reported Hearing Problems, Psychological Distress, and Cardiovascular Disease in U.S. Adults, National Health Interview Survey 1997-2017.
Conclusions The relationship between self-reported hearing problems and CVD is mediated by psychological distress. Further research is needed to identify causal pathways and psychophysiological mechanisms involved in this relationship and to identify effective methods for addressing cardiovascular health-related psychosocial factors in the treatment of hearing impairment.

ConclusionAMI as a result of penetrating trauma is rare, but can occur secondary to an acute thrombus, even in the absence of a direct cardiac injury. MI should be a consideration in patients with penetrating trauma to the chest, regardless of the intensity of the trauma. At minimum, a 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) and a baseline troponin should be obtained at initial evaluation and post-operatively, if surgically managed. If ECG demonstrates findings concerning for MI, it should be followed with an echocardiogram and/or cardiac angiogram to further help guide management, with an early cardiology consultation.
The most common treatment against migraine is unsafe for people at risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, but a new drug against migraine has shown promise in a large-scale clinical trial, offering hope of an alternative treatment.
BioVentrix is getting closer to bringing its transcatheter-based structural cardiovascular device to treat heart failure to the U.S. The private company announced receiving FDA breakthrough device designation for the Revivent TC Transcatheter Ventricular Enhancement System. This designation can help put San Ramon, CA-based BioVentrix on a faster path to obtaining FDA approval. The firmâs Revivent TC System is used in the Less Invasive Ventricular Enhancement (LIVE) procedure, to exclude scar tissue on the left ventricle that has resulted from a heart attack, so the healthy portion of the heart can functio...

Conclusion: The Gensini scores of patients in the stress hyperglycemia group and the elevated FBG group were significantly higher than those in the control group. RBG and FBG were positively correlated with the Gensini score in AMI patients, and FBG was an independent risk factor for the Gensini score in AMI patients. PMID: 31737681 [PubMed - in process]
