In the recent article by Dr Shannon et  al,1 “Preoperative beta blockade is associated with increased rates of 30-day major adverse cardiac events in critical limb ischemia patients undergoing infrainguinal revascularization,” the authors highlight the impact of beta blockade on postoperative cardiac events, which demonstrated an in crease in 30-day myocardial infarction and major adverse cardiac events. In the accompanying editorial, Dr Powell points out how the enthusiasm for preoperative beta blockers has waned.

This study investigated the hypothesis that, in patients with isolated left ventricular diastolic dysfunction, higher grade diastolic dysfunction was associated with greater risk of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs) after surgery. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study. Data of adult patients with isolated echocardiographic diastolic dysfunction (ejection fraction, ≥50%) who underwent noncardiac surgery from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015 were collected. The primary end point was the occurrence of postoperative MACEs during hospital stay, which included acute myocardial infarction, congestiv...

ICIs have been shown to provide significant mortality benefits for cancer patients, but they are also associated with immune-mediated toxicity. Unlike most immune-related adverse events, which are a common occurrence, reversible and can be treat...

BOSTON (CBS) – For years, experts have said that women tend to have different heart attack symptoms than men, but a new study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association finds that’s not true. Women have notoriously received unequal care when it comes to diagnosing and treating heart attacks compared to men. One prevailing thought has been that women don’t have the same classic symptoms as men, like chest pain. But when researchers studied the symptoms of people attending an emergency room in England, they found that chest pain was the most common symptom for both men and women. And an equa...

Publication date: Available online 20 August 2019Source: Anaesthesia &Intensive Care MedicineAuthor(s): Amanda Zacharzewski, Ross MacnabAbstractCardiac disease is a significant cause of maternal mortality. In the UK in the last maternal mortality report, it was the leading cause of indirect maternal deaths (2.39 deaths per 100,000 maternities). The overall rate of maternal mortality from cardiac disease has significantly increased over the last three decades, with this increase being mostly attributable to deaths from ischaemic heart disease, myocardial infarction and peripartum cardiomyopathy. Conditions such as pulmo...

In conclusion, the data demonstrate that EPC traffic in patients with glioma, representing neoplasia, is different from that in myocardial infarction, representing tissue regeneration. Glioma patients may benefit from therapies aimed at lowering KDR+ cells and HPCs. PMID: 31428150 [PubMed]

CONCLUSIONS: The results show that among ACS patients treated with COMBO, 3 months is non-inferior to 12 months DAPT. However, given the numerically higher rates of mortality and ST in the 3 months DAPT group, 1-year DAPT should still be recommended in ACS until more information becomes available. A 3 months DAPT strategy should be considered only if clinically mandated. PMID: 31422929 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
