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?

Mesenchymal stem cell therapies vary widely in their ability to influence regeneration, though they fairly reliably reduce chronic inflammation in older patients. One challenge is that there is no standard on what constitutes a mesenchymal stem cell; it is a category so broad as to be almost meaningless. Further, two clinics performing what is ostensibly the same protocol using cells from the same source can produce widely divergent outcomes. In most cases, near all transplanted cells die, and the benefits obtained for the patient derive from signaling produced by the stem cells in the short period of survival following tr...

Researchers here identify miR-155-5p as a potential target to improve mitochondrial function. This microRNA is upregulated with age, and appears to inhibit mitochondrial fission. That in turn prevents the cellular maintenance process of mitophagy from clearing out worn and damaged mitochondria efficiently enough to prevent loss of function. Since mitochondria provide the chemical energy store molecules that power all cellular operations, this has downstream consequences on cell and tissue function, including higher levels of cellular senescence. Aging impairs the functions of human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), t...

Aneurysmal formation is a rare but reported complication of myocardial infarction.1 However, a post-infarct aneurysm is commonly diagnosed in the left ventricle. This is most likely because of high left ventricular pressures in the setting of deteriorating myocardium associated with an absent or significantly limited blood supply. Right ventricular (RV) aneurysms develop with substantially less frequency and this may be due to generally lower intraventricular pressures in the right heart.

AbstractThere are unresolved questions related to the proper use of editing the region of interest (ROI) for measurements of global longitudinal strain (GLS). The purpose of the present study was to compare the semi-automatic default GLS value by the vendor ’s software with manually adjusted GLS and test the impact on GLS measures with different ROI widths. We selected 25 patients post myocardial infarction treated with PCI who had excellent echocardiographic recordings after 2–5 days and 3 months. The different GLS values were assessed from thes e 50 analyses in three steps. The semi-automatically GL...

ConclusionIn ENSURE-AF, thromboembolic events were rare and absolute bleeding event rates were higher with concomitant APT. These findings may be relevant for AF-patients considered for dual therapy; even for a short treatment duration of 1  month.

This study aims to develop an understanding of the s exual health experiences of Italian women 1 year after they experienced AMIs. This qualitative study used Cohen’s phenomenological design. A sample of 12 women was interviewed. Each interview was audio-recorded, and all interviews had a duration ranging from 40 to 60 min. Interviews were read, r e-read, and analyzed by each researcher, who then extrapolated themes. Three main themes emerged from the analysis of the interviews: the fear of a recurring infarction, stress, and the desire to receive information about their recovery. Two sub-themes also emerge...

Coronavirus is a deadly infection that's already killed more than 1,200 people in the UK, and could easily be confused with flu symptoms. You could also be at risk of the virus if you've developed the same signs as a heart attack, including chest pain.

(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).
