Being in a dry environment, such as on a plane, can cause dehydration and heart issues. According to Mellanie True Hills, CEO of StopAfib.org, a patient advocacy organization that hosts the number one arrhythmia site and one of the top five heart disease sites worldwide, “The significantly dry air on a plane wicks moisture out of the body, causing dehydration quickly. Dehydration thickens the blood and depletes the body of essential minerals such as potassium and magnesium. Magnesium regulates the heart rhythm and potassium helps it work. Inadequate levels of potassium or magnesium can trigger abnormal heart rhythms,...

The objective of this research article was to assess the trend of hospitalization, epidemiological characteristics and economic burden in the young adult, aged 18–45 years, presenting with atrial fibrillation.MethodsHospitalization data from the National Inpatient Sample between 2005 and 2015 were used to analyze prevalence of risk factors and financial burden in young adults with atrial fibrillation.ResultsFrom 2005 to 2015, a total of 260,080 admissions were included in the study. From 2005 to 2015, there was a decreasing trend of total admissions with atrial fibrillation among the age group of 18–45 years co...

e;rquez Colombo P Abstract OBJECTIVES: To describe the characteristics and clinical differences between institutionalised patients and those included in a home care program. DESIGN: A descriptive, observational, cross-sectional, and multicentre study. Site Seville, 2016. STUDY SUBJECTS: A total 1857 elderly patients of similar characteristics (1441 institutionalised and 410 at home) in Seville in 2016.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Ryanodine receptor (RyR) dysfunction in skeletal muscle (RyR1) leads to malignant hyperthermia, and in cardiac muscle (RyR2) triggers cardiac arrhythmias. We hypothesized that RyR dysfunction in vascular smooth muscle could increase vascular resistance and hypertension, and may contribute to increased atrial fibrillation (AF) in hypertension. Thus, stabilizing RyR function with chronic dantrolene treatment may attenuate hypertension and AF inducibility in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). METHODS: Male SHR (16 weeks-old) were randomized into vehicle- (n=10) and dantrolene-treated (10...

AbstractThere were limited studies comparing the anterior (AC) and posterior (PC) circulation acute ischemic strokes (AIS). Our study aimed to evaluate distinct features of AC and PC strokes regarding clinical, vascular risk, pathogenesis and outcome factors after endovascular procedures. This multicenter prospective study registered 873 patients with acute large occlusion of anterior circulation stroke (ACS) and posterior circulation stroke (PCS). Patients who underwent endovascular procedures were included in this study. The differences in ACS and PCS regarding baseline characteristics, post-operative intracranial hemorr...

Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this retrospective cohort study was to develop a new score (RA-CHADSV) (rheumatoid arthritis - congestive heart failure, hypertension, age ≥75 years, diabetes mellitus, stroke/transient ischemic attack/thromboembolism, and vascular disease), modified from the CHA2DS2-VASc score (congestive heart failure, hypertension, age ≥75 years (doubled), diabetes mellitus, stroke/transient ischemic attack (doubled), vascular disease, age 65-74 years, and female), in predicting the risk of ischemic stroke in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients without atrial fibrillation (AF)...

This study investigates, for the first time, the association between blood pressure (BP), OH and mortality in a cohort of patients with AF and TIA symptoms.AimTo investigate the incidence of the association between OH, AF and TIA.MethodsThis retrospective observational study utilised the Leicester one-stop transient TIA clinic patient database to consider the initial systolic and diastolic BP of 688 patients with a diagnosis of AF. The primary outcome was time until death. Covariant measures included status of AF diagnosis (known or new AF), cardiovascular risk factors, and primary clinic diagnosis [cerebrovascular (CV) ve...

RARITAN, NJ, February 10, 2020 – The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson &Johnson announced today the submission of a supplemental Biologics License Application (sBLA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seeking approval of DARZALEX® (daratumumab) in combination with Kyprolis® (carfilzomib) and dexamethasone (DKd) for relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma. The sBLA is supported by results from the Phase 3 CANDOR study, which compared treatment with DKd to carfilzomib and dexamethasone (Kd) in patients with multiple myeloma who relapsed after one to three prior lines of therapy. “Wh...

Authors: Morovic S, Budincevic H, Govori V, Demarin V Abstract Dementia represents one of the greatest global challenges for health and social care in this century. More than 50 million people worldwide suffer from dementia, and this number is predicted to triple by 2050. Ageing is often associated with cognitive impairment. Therefore, prevention of cognitive impairment is an imperative. Dementia includes a heterogeneous group of disorders, the most common being Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. Most cardiovascular risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus, hypercholesterolemia, atrial fibrillat...
