T2STIR preparation for single-shot cardiovascular magnetic resonance myocardial edema imaging
Myocardial edema in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is commonly imaged using dark-blood short tau inversion recovery turbo spin echo (STIR-TSE) cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR). The technique is sensi...
CONCLUSIONS: Intravitreal ranibizumab injection does not appear to increase the risk of hospitalization for AMI within 60 days in exudative AMD patients. PMID: 32233149 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: Current data imply that PCI for CCS does not improve outcomes in a large percentage of cases. A symptomatic benefit exists only in patients with frequent angina pectoris. The selection of CCS patients for PCI needs to be more strictly bound to the recommendations of current guidelines, particularly in Germany. PMID: 32234189 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Battisha A, Sawalha K, Madoukh B, Sheikh O, Doughem K, Al-Akchar M, Al-Sadawi M, Shaikh S Abstract Systemic Mastocytosis (SM) is a disorder of excessive mast cell infiltration in multiple organ tissues. Atherosclerosis is a major risk factor for developing acute coronary syndrome . In addition to lipid accumulation in the arterial wall, inflammation plays an important role in the pathogenesis of plaque rupture and activating the thrombosis cascade . The Mast cells contribution to plaque destabilization has been well established in multiple animal and human studies . In a recent study, SM has been ...
Conclusion: Firefighters showed significantly higher cardiovascular risk than referent controls when comparing those within the same BP category, suggesting that firefighters with elevated BP and hypertension may be at high risk of adverse prognosis.
Conclusion: Amlodipine lowered long-term gout risk compared with lisinopril or chlorthalidone. This finding may be useful in cases where gout risk is a principal concern among patients being treated for hypertension. This trial is registered at clinicaltrials.gov, number: NCT00000542.
ConclusionCCB with ACE or CCB with ARB combination strategies are equally acceptable in hypertensive Korean patients regarding the occurrence of NODM.
AbstractAs reperfusion therapies have become more widely used in acute myocardial infarction patients, ischemia-induced myocardial damage has been markedly reduced, but reperfusion-induced cardiac injury has become increasingly evident. The features of cardiac ischemia –reperfusion (I/R) injury include microvascular perfusion defects, platelet activation and sequential cardiomyocyte death due to additional ischemic events at the reperfusion stage. Microvascular obstruction, defined as a no-reflow phenomenon, determines the infarct zone, myocardial function and p eri-operative mortality. Cardiac microvascular endothel...
