This study suggests that for most, managing CAD with medications alone (the conservative approach) is as safe and effective as the more invasive strategy of cardiac catheterization and opening of the blocked artery. Findings of the ISCHEMIA trial ISCHEMIA followed over 5,000 patients with significant narrowing in one or more coronary arteries. Half of the patients were randomly selected to receive conservative treatment with optimal medical therapy (OMT) and lifestyle changes to treat risk factors such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol. The other half were given OMT and also sent for cardiac catheterization (thre...

As this article notes, researchers have recently suggested that the benefits to heart function observed over many years of stem cell therapies are not in fact due to any action of the cells themselves, not even cell signaling mechanisms such as release of exosomes, but are rather due to an immune response to the transplanted cells. The study reported here illustrates the point by showing some degree of regeneration of injured heart tissue to take place in mice when the debris of dead cells is transplanted. We might compare these findings with the body of work showing that delivery of exosomes can spur cardiac regeneration;...

This study proposes a multi-center RCT in order to compare outcomes of warmer hypothermic strategies during aortic hemiarch surgery on a composite endpoint of neurologic and acute kidney injury (AKI).Methods/designThis is a prospective multi-center, single-blind two-arm RCT comparing mild (32  °C) versus moderate (26 °C) hypothermic cardiac arrest in patients (n = 282) undergoing hemiarch surgery with antegrade cerebral perfusion (ACP). The primary endpoint is a composite of neurological injury (incidence of transient ischemic attack and/or stroke) and Kidney Disease Improving Global Out...

We experienced a very rare case of isolated single coronary artery, in which the left main coronary artery passes between the aorta and pulmonary artery. It is the most potentially serious among the coronary artery anomalies, because it has the risk of myocardial infarction and sudden death in young ages. AbstractWe experienced a very rare case of isolated single coronary artery, in which the left main coronary artery passes between the aorta and pulmonary artery. It is the most potentially serious among the coronary artery anomalies, because it has the risk of myocardial infarction and sudden death in young ages.

AbstractABO blood group has been associated with various disease phenotypes. However, ABO blood group to influence patients in risk of venous thromboembolic events (VTEs) and arterial thromboembolic events (ATEs) remains controversial after evaluation in several reports. To fully assess effects of ABO blood group on VTEs and ATEs, we conducted a cross-sectional study and investigated the interaction between blood group and age, and between blood group and sex on the prevalence of VTEs and ATEs. In addition, the effect of blood group on ATEs in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) was observed. Detailed information of 783...

This patient was working on his truck in a garage without ventilation and the vehicle was running. He felt dizzy and lost consciousness. The next thing he remembers is waking up in the ambulance. He was last seen normal at 09:00 AM and was found down at 10:30 AM. He denied chest pain, abdominal pain, SOB or any other symptoms, though he did endorse chest pressure when asked specifically.He underwent a routine ECG prior to hyperbaric therapy for CO poisoning:Obvious Massive STEMI, Proximal LAD OcclusionHis CO level returned at 34%.Further h/o revealed that he had had a proximal LAD stent placed for a Non-Occlusion MI more t...

Publication date: 1 January 2020Source: Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces, Volume 185Author(s): Wan Bei, Li Jing, Nie ChenAbstractWogonin, one of the main active ingredients of Scutellaria radix, is a kind of flavonoid compound. In the present study, we report that wogonin nanoparticles (Wog np) protect Isoproterenol (ISO) induced Myocardial Infarction (MI) rats. Nanoparticles of sizes less than 200 nm with spherical shape were prepared using Polylactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA) and Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) respectively as polymer and stabilizer. Male Wistar rats were divided into 4 groups. Group 1 as a control group a...
