Cardiac sympathetic denervation for conventional treatment refractory arrhythmias.

Conclusion: Video-assisted CSD should be considered as a treatment option for patients with potentially dangerous arrhythmias that do not respond to conventional treatment, especially in recurrent ventricular tachycardia. PMID: 31588139 [PubMed - in process]

I've been struggling to decide between UCSF and UCSD for the last couple of weeks. I'm so glad I have these two options, but without in-person Second Look events, I can't get as good of a feel of where I can see myself being the most happy as it would be with an in-person visit. I'm an underrepresented, non-traditional student from a small town in New Mexico and I really care for a learning environment that is diverse (in every sense from racial, socioeconomic, personal interests, etc.)... UCSF vs. UCSD

Authors: Gökaslan S, Demirbaş H, Özer Gökaslan Ç Abstract BACKGROUND/AIM: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease characterized by neurodegeneration or demyelination, and the relapsing?remitting phase of MS is characterized by acute exacerbation of disease activity. The most commonly used non-invasive approach to assess autonomic function is the determination of heart rate turbulence (HRT) and heart rate variability (HRV). The aim of this study was to evaluate the presence of cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction using HRT and HRV parameters determined via 24-hour Holter ECG monitorin...

Improving the outcomes of pediatric patients with congenital heart disease with end-stage heart failure depends on the collaboration of all stakeholders; this includes providers, patients and families, and industry representatives. Because of the rarity of this condition and the heterogeneity of heart failure etiologies that occur at pediatric centers, learnings must be shared between institutions and all disciplines to move the field forward. To foster collaboration, excel discovery, and bring data to the bedside, a new, collaborative quality improvement science network—ACTION (Advanced Cardiac Therapies Improving O...

Artificial neural network (ANN) and its variants are favored algorithm in designing cardiac arrhythmia classifier (CAC) for its high accuracy. However, the implementation of ultralow power ANN-CAC is challenging due to the intensive computations. Moreover, the imbalanced MIT-BIH database limits the ANN-CAC performance. Several novel techniques are proposed to address the challenges in the low power implementation. Firstly, continuous-in-time discrete-in-amplitude (CTDA) signal flow is adopted to reduce the multiplication operations. Secondly, conditional grouping scheme (CGS) in combination with biased training (BT) is pro...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewIndividuals with metabolically unhealthy normal weight (MUNW) have an adverse cardiometabolic risk factor profile in the absence of excess body weight, and increased risk for diabetes and heart disease. We critically review some physiological traits and lifestyle characteristics of the MUNW phenotype.Recent FindingsThe prevalence of MUNW varies considerably around the world and among ethnicities, partly because of different definitions; on average, this phenotype affects about ~  30% of normal weight persons globally. Most studies have recruited MUNW subjects who, although within the normal ...
