Peterson, Ismail El-Hamamsy, Jehangir J. Appoo, Jan O. Friedrich, Munir Boodhwani, Bobby Yanagawa, Maral Ouzounian, Canadian Thoracic Aortic Collaborative (CTAC) InvestigatorsAbstractBackgroundAortic valve sparing operations theoretically have fewer stroke and bleeding complications but may increase late reoperation risk, versus composite valve grafts.MethodsWe meta-analyzed all studies comparing aortic valve sparing (reimplantation...

High blood pressure: A common diagnosis, that shows hardly any symptoms, but can be deadly. Hardened arteries and blood forced too hard against artery walls can lead to a heart attack or stroke. Fortunately, there are lifestyle improvements that can lower blood pressure and potentially save your life.

Contributors : Hesham Soliman ; Ryan Vander WerffSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Mus musculusThe cardiac stroma contains multipotent mesenchymal progenitors. However, lineage relationships within cardiac stromal cells are poorly defined. Here, we identify heart-resident PDGFRa+ SCA-1+ cells as cardiac Fibro/Adipogenic Progenitors (cFAPs) and show that they respond to ischemic damage by generating SCA-1- fibrogenic cells. Pharmacological blockade of this differentiation step with an anti-fibrotic tyrosine kinase inhibitor decreases post-myocardial infarction (MI) remodeling and lea...

Jie, S.U.N. Xuan, X.U. BiaoAbstract and KeywordsHypertension (HT) is the most common public-health challenge and shows a high incidence around the world. Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of mortality and morbidity among the elderly (age> 65 years) in the United States. Now, there is widespread acceptance of the causal link between HT and acute myocardial infarction (MI). This is the first data-mining study to id...

Authors: Chen J, Xu S, Zhou W, Wu L, Wang L, Li W Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of exendin-4 (Ex-4) on ventricular arrhythmias and calcium sparks-mediated calcium leak in a myocardial infarction-heart failure model.We studied the influence of exendin-4 on ventricular arrhythmogenesis in a rat myocardial infarction-heart failure model. In vivo arrhythmia studies (electrocardiogram [ECG] telemetry studies), ex vivo arrhythmia studies calcium sparks tests, and analysis of total and phosphorylated ryanodine receptor (RyR) 2 and CaMK-II were carried out in sham group, myocardial infarction...
