Heart attack symptoms include chest pain, difficulty breathing, and an overwhelming feeling of anxiety. But you could also be at risk of a deadly myocardial infarction and heart disease if you have this subtle warning sign on your skin - do your arms or legs have these coloured patterns?

(American College of Cardiology) In a study with the longest follow-up to date of patients with a high-risk form of heart disease known as left main coronary artery disease (LMCAD), researchers found no significant differences in rates of death, heart attack or stroke between patients who were treated with a stent and those who underwent heart bypass surgery. The research was presented at the American College of Cardiology's Annual Scientific Session Together with World Congress of Cardiology (ACC.20/WCC).

When Dr. Mark Lewis has to tell a cancer patient they’re dying, he tries to do so as compassionately as possible, usually offering a hug or a hand to hold. The thought of doing so by phone, he says, once felt heartbreakingly impersonal. But in the face of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Salt Lake City-based gastrointestinal oncologist has had to do many things that make his “conscience weigh heavy.” He’s delivered bad news virtually, to limit the possibility of spreading the virus. He’s delayed chemotherapy for patients who—he hopes—can wait, knowing the treatment would wipe out...

(CNN) — Ending your day with a hot bath might have more benefits than just relaxation. It could also lower your risk of heart disease and stroke, a new study finds. Previous research on bathing has already shown that it’s beneficial for sleep quality and how healthy a person thinks they are. A new study, published Tuesday in the journal Heart, found that a daily hot bath is also associated with a 28% lower risk of heart disease, and a 26% lower risk of stroke — likely because taking a bath is also associated with lowering your blood pressure, the researchers said. They discovered this after tracking the b...

Abstract Acute myocardial infarction is a leading cause of death among single organ diseases. Despite successful reperfusion therapy, ischaemia reperfusion injury (IRI) can induce oxidative stress (OS), cardiomyocyte apoptosis, autophagy and release of inflammatory cytokines, resulting in increased infarct size. In IRI, mitochondrial dysfunction is a key factor, which involves the production of reactive oxygen species, activation of inflammatory signalling cascades or innate immune responses, and apoptosis. Therefore, intercellular mitochondrial transfer could be considered as a promising treatment strategy for is...

(American Heart Association) People who regularly ate tofu and other foods containing isoflavones had a moderately lower risk of developing heart disease.However, people who eat isoflavones and adhere to a healthier diet in general are already considerably less likely to die from a heart attack compared to those who did not.

Although there has been a steady decrease in cardiovascular mortality rates over the last decades, cardiovascular diseases still represent an important burden of premature mortality, disability and healthcare expenditures in most countries [1]. In Europe, ischaemic heart disease remains the most frequent incident cardiovascular disease [2]. Short-term mortality in patients with myocardial infarction has dramatically decreased with the use of systematic revascularization and guidelines recommended therapies [3].

AbstractHypoplastic coronary artery disease is a rare congenital abnormality reported to be associated with myocardial infarction and sudden cardiac death. Provoked positive spasm in the left circumflex coronary artery (LCX) with pharmacological spasm provocation tests was remarkably lower than other coronary arteries. We sometimes encountered patients with rest angina and hypoplastic right coronary artery (H-RCA). Among 5953 patients with diagnostic and follow-up coronary arteriography, we found 93 patients (1.6%) with H-RCA. During the same period, we could perform spasm provocation tests in 564 patients with rest angina...
