Interferon- γ regulates cardiac myeloid cells in myocardial infarction

A HEART ATTACK is when the blood supply that normally nourishes the heart with oxygen is cut off and the heart muscle begins to die. Knowing the early warning signs of a heart could save a life and spotting this unusual sign in the ear could mean you're at risk.
ConclusionClinically relevant subgroups, including patients with PMI, can be uncovered using serially measured cTnT and a LCMM. The LCMM showed superior diagnostic accuracy of PMI. A rising cTnT profile is potentially a better criterion than a single cut-off value in diagnosing PMI post-CABG.

Ingestion of cylindrical batteries is uncommon. Management can include removal via upper endoscopy, surgical excision, or observation. This case demonstrates the rare phenomenon of cylindrical battery ingestion causing an electrocardiogram (ECG) artifact that mimics ST segment myocardial infarction (STEMI).
CONCLUSION: HFpEF confers a significant perioperative risk of MACCE in patients undergoing hip fracture surgery. PMID: 31977615 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: We found no significant association between retinal vascular density on OCT-A and hemodynamic variables in the acute phase of a myocardial infarction or after 3 months of cardiac rehabilitation. Therefore, OCT-A findings do not seem to be influenced by the hemodynamic changes associated with myocardial infarction. PMID: 31973975 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: As reimbursement for emergency medicine in Germany was recently rearranged, quality benchmarking has gained incremental importance. Mandatory joint quality measurement in both concepts ensuring gap analysis and process improvement is encouraged. PMID: 31970463 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Goeder D, Oberhoffer R Abstract Cardiovascular diseases are among the leading causes of death worldwide. Apart from a few exceptions heart attack, stroke and peripheral arterial occlusive disease first occur in later adulthood. The cornerstone for these diseases, however, is already laid by accelerated vascular aging in childhood. Apart from pediatric medical preventive check-ups, the medical care of the parents should also be a reason for taking action. A detailed family history enables many conclusions to be drawn about the cardiovascular risk of the next generation This requires targeted diagn...
ConclusionsWe expect to clarify whether DS can safely reduce the occurrence of adverse cardiovascular endpoints compared to IS in patients with STEMI.
ConclusionFulacimstat was safe and well tolerated in patients with left-ventricular dysfunction (LVD) after first STEMI but had no effect on cardiac remodeling.
