Prospective, Multicenter, Randomized, Controlled Pilot Trial of Peritoneal Hypothermia in Patients With ST-Segment-- Elevation Myocardial Infarction Myocardial Infarction

Conclusions— Peritoneal hypothermia is feasible and achieves rapid cooling with only a modest increase in treatment times in the setting of ST-segment–elevation myocardial infarction. However, in the present randomized trial, peritoneal hypothermia was associated with an increased rate of adverse events without reducing infarct size. Clinical Trial Registration— URL: http://www.clinicaltrials.gov. Unique identifier: NCT01655433.

DiscussionThe interventions of education and medication alerts resulted in a significant increase in the percentage of patients receiving appropriate doses of dilTIAZem and a nonsignificant decrease in the incidence of hypotension. This process-oriented intervention resulted in an improvement in appropriate dilTIAZem doses at our site. Rate control was not statistically significantly different between the 2 groups. Long-term sustainability of this intervention requires further study.

This review describes the salient findings from sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitor cardiovascular outcome trials that serendipitously revealed the cardiorenal benefits of SGLT2 inhibitors in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus who either have established cardiovascular disease or multiple cardiovascular risk factors. It also summarizes the findings from other phase 3 cl...

(CNN/CBS) — At least 1,300 people have died from the flu so far this season, according to a preliminary estimate released Friday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There have been at least 2.6 million flu illnesses and 23,000 flu-related hospitalizations, according to the analysis. So far this season, the CDC has received reports of 10 children who have died from the flu, four more than the week before. Experts have warned that flu is hitting the United States early this year, and there are concerns that this early season could mean a particularly severe season overall. Flu spread significantly in ...

In this study, 37.0% (n=452) of the population were admitted directly to Hospital de Braga and 63.0% (n=770) were transferred from other hospitals. Although timings (in min) until reperfusion were longer in interhospital transfer patients (symptom onset-first medical contact (median 76.5, IQR 40.3–150 vs. 91.0, IQR 50–180, p=0.002), first medical contact-reperfusion (median 87.5, IQR 69.0–114 vs. 145, IQR 115–199, p

In order to assess a potential cardioembolic source an echocardiogram was performed revealing a large mass consistent with a thrombus in transit through a patent foramen ovale. Due to the high risk of systemic embolism emergent surgical thrombectomy was performed,...

We report a young 22-year-old female with unknown etiology of a pseudoaneurysm, who was previously managed as a psychiatric case and for musculoskeletal pain. On subsequent investigation and confirmation with cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, aneurysmectomy was done. This is a rare case in a young 22-year-old woman with a ventricular pseudoaneurysm of unknown etiology. Considering the high risk for rupture of a ventricular pseudoaneurysm, surgical resection was mandatory with no complications intra- and postprocedure.
