CoQ10 helps relieve symptoms of congestive heart failure, prevents premature death in patients

(Natural News) Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is one of the most popular dietary supplements in the United States. Extensive studies suggest that the antioxidant properties of CoQ10 can be utilized for the treatment of cardiovascular conditions. A recent review published in Circulation: Heart Failure found that CoQ10 supplementation can reduce the risk of premature death in patients with heart failure. CoQ10...

Authors: Saiki A, Ohira M, Yamaguchi T, Nagayama D, Shimizu N, Shirai K, Tatsuno I Abstract Arterial stiffness is recognized mainly as an indicator of arteriosclerosis and a predictor of cardiovascular events. Cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI), which reflects arterial stiffness from the origin of the aorta to the ankle, was developed in 2004. An important feature of this index is the independency from blood pressure at the time of measurement. A large volume of clinical evidence obtained using CAVI has been reported. CAVI is high in patients with various atherosclerotic diseases including coronary artery disease a...

ConclusionThe use of SSRIs in post-ACS patients with depression was associated with a 44% relative risk reduction of myocardial infarction. No difference in mortality was found. Given that the quality of the evidence was low, further research is warranted.

ConclusionThe incidence of NF increased markedly from 2002 to 2017 although in-hospital mortality did not change. There was a gradual shift in the causative organisms from Gram-positive to Gram-negative.

Abstract Early detection of heart failure in older adults will be a significant issue for the foreseeable future. The current article presents a case study to describe how monitoring ballistocardiogram (BCG) waveforms captured non-invasively using sensors placed under a bed mattress can detect early heart failure changes. Heart and respiratory rates obtained from the bed sensor of a female older adult who was hospitalized with acute mixed congestive heart failure, clinic notes, and data from computer simulations reflecting increasing diastolic dysfunction were analyzed. Mean heart and respiratory rate trends obtai...

Tricuspid regurgitation is a notable aspect of congestive heart failure and is linked with worse outcomes if untreated. Functional tricuspid regurgitation commonly is seen in patients with heart failure, particularly in patients presenting for surgical management, such as those for mechanical cardiac assist device implantation. This review aims to study the published data related to the surgical management of tricuspid regurgitation in the cardiac surgical population comprehensively.

In this issue of Seminars, Ranganath and colleagues at New York University (NYU) discuss their institutional series of 140 patients 70 years and older who underwent robotic mitral valve surgery between 2011 and 2018.1 Patients had higher incidence of preoperative atrial fibrillation (AF), congestive heart failure (CHF), and STS predicted risk compared to the 430 younger patients performed robotically during the same time period. Despite higher rates of concomitant cryoablation, hybrid percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and tricuspid repair, their outcomes were similar to the cohort of younger patients.

AbstractAimsHypertension is a major contributor to cardiac diastolic dysfunction. Different therapeutics strategies have been proposed to control blood pressure (BP), but their independent impact on cardiac function remains undetermined. In patients with resistant hypertension, we compared the changes in cardiac parameters between two strategies based on sequential nephron blockade (NBD) with a combination of diuretics or sequential renin ‐angiotensin system blockade (RASB).Methods and resultsAfter a 4 ‐week period where all patients received Irbesartan 300 mg/day + hydrochlorothiazide 12.5 mg/day&n...

Authors: Angeli F, Verdecchia P, Masnaghetti S, Vaudo G, Reboldi G Abstract INTRODUCTION: Hypertension is a major and modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Its prevalence is rising as the result of population aging. Isolated systolic hypertension mostly occurs in older patients accounting for up to 80% of cases. AREAS COVERED: The authors systematically review published studies to appraise the scientific and clinical evidence supporting the role of blood pressure control in elderly patients with isolated systolic hypertension, and to assess the influence of different drug treatment regimens on outc...
