Beyond its effects on the body, medical care can be a balm for the mind. Extensive treatment can feel like a promise that doctors have done everything possible. But that perceived security can come at a high price. As health costs soar, patients are emptying their pockets for care that may not make them healthier, research suggests. Last year, a 5,000-person trial showed that for patients with chronic but stable heart disease, surgical procedures such as stenting and bypass did not reduce the risk of heart attack or death more than lifestyle interventions and medication. Even patients with extensive damage did not, on aver...

Heart disease has largely been thought of as unique to modern Homo sapiens as a result of our diet, lifestyle, and environment, but new findings challenge that assumption.

(Penn State) Researchers found that eating walnuts daily as part of a healthy diet was associated with increases in certain bacteria that can help promote health. Additionally, those changes in gut bacteria were associated with improvements in some risk factors for heart disease.

In the UK, mortality rate during pregnancy/in the peripartal period is 14.1 per 100,000 maternities with heart disease being the leading cause of non-obstetric maternal mortality (10% to 15% of all maternal deaths). Owing to the advances in the treatment of congenital heart disease (CHD), an increasing percentage of women has reached childbearing age, making CHD nowadays the most frequent cardiovascular disease during pregnancy in the Western world. In the pregnant woman, several adaptive changes occur in the cardiovascular and pulmonary system that in the worst case can lead to cardiovascular collapse in women with pre-ex...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewPacing in pediatric and adult patients with congenital heart disease requires careful evaluation and thoughtful planning. Review of current guidelines with assessment of risk/benefit must be performed along with planning on a case-by-case basis in order to achieve maximal success and reduce risk in this specialized population of patients that is rapidly increasing in size.Recent FindingsGuidelines for pacing in pediatric and congenital heart disease patients span many years. Most recent consensus and summary guidelines address pacing in adult patients with or without congenital heart disease. Pedia...

Recently adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) has been one of the major topics in cardiology. Advance in surgical and catheter-based therapeutic technologies specific for congenital heart disease (CHD) not only reduced mortality but also improved quality of life in children as well as young adults, and thus, consequently elderly patients, who had CHD or post-operative CHD, increased. Thus, the ACHD population is growing with a progressive increase in elderly population. Since coronary artery disease (CAD) increases with age, comorbid CAD is an important issue that cannot overlooked in patients with ACHD.

The activities of mTOR are well researched, given that mTOR inhibition slows aging in a number of species. This is one of the more prominent areas of research and development to emerge from the study of beneficial stress responses such as that produced by the practice of calorie restriction. The mTOR protein participates in cellular metabolism through a pair of protein complexes, and much of the work to date has focused on the protein complex mTORC1 rather than mTORC2. The present consensus (though not unchallenged) is that general inhibition of mTOR, such as via the use of rapamycin, is problematic because harmful ...
