Fish Oil Is Good Medicine for Heart Failure

THURSDAY, Nov. 14, 2019 -- Fish oil might help people with heart failure avoid repeat trips to the hospital, a new study suggests. The findings come from an analysis of a clinical trial first published last year, where researchers tested the effects...

WooAbstractAdults with type 2 diabetes mellitus can benefit from pharmacotherapies that lower their risk for cardiovascular disease. This review describes the salient findings from sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitor cardiovascular outcome trials that serendipitously revealed the cardiorenal benefits of SGLT2 inhibitors in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus who either have established cardiovascular disease or multiple cardiovascular risk factors. It also summarizes the findings from other phase 3 cl...

Authors: Lavallee DC, Blakeney EA, Yu Y, Johnson R, Liner DA, Murphy NL, Pambianco SB, Paquet R, Spacciante L, Woodard NY, Zierler BK Abstract For patients with advanced heart failure involvement as a member of the healthcare team is critical to safe, high-quality and goal-directed care. While recognized as an important aspect of care, patient engagement is not yet a standard practice. This presents an opportunity for professional education and development in team-based care. This short report describes the development of a Community and Patient Advisory Team (CPAT) formed to support patient involvement in int...

After the procedure, his clinical conditions dramatically improved to NYHA class I.

DavisAbstractCardiac amyloidosis occurs secondary to the deposition of insoluble protein fibrils in cardiac tissue leading to progressive myocardial dysfunction, clinical heart failure, and arrhythmia. In recent years, increasing awareness and improved screening have resulted in an increased prevalence of cardiac amyloidosis, with contemporary estimates reporting a prevalence of 18 to 55 cases per 100,000 person-years, and accounting for...

ConclusionsRegression of conduction abnormalities was frequent among patients undergoing coronary angiography, primarily for suspected acute coronary syndrome. After adjustment for important confounders including extent of coronary artery disease, infranodal conduction abnormalities were associated with a modest increase in cardiovascular risk.

DiscussionThe EMMY trial will test empagliflozin in patients with AMI regardless of their diabetic status. The EMMY trial may therefore underpin the concept of SGLT2 inhibition to improve cardiac remodeling, pre-and afterload reduction and cardiac metabolism regardless of its antidiabetic effects. Results will provide the rationale for the conduct of a cardiovascular outcome trial to test the effect of empagliflozin in patients with AMI.

Conclusions Preoperative vitamin D was not associated with a composite of postoperative 30-day cardiac outcomes. However, there was a significant association between vitamin D deficiency and a composite of infectious complications and decreased kidney function. While renal effects were not clinically meaningful, the effect of vitamin D supplementation on infectious complications requires further study.
