Protecting the gains: What changes are needed to prevent a reversal of the downward cardiovascular disease mortality trend?
ConclusionsGiven demographic and risk prevalence changes, increasing access and adherence to current preventative therapeutics could slow the expected mortality increase, but new therapies may be needed to maintain the downward trend in CVD deaths. (Source: Clinical Cardiology)

Response to Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy in Non ‐ischemic Cardiomyopathy is Unrelated to Medical Therapy
IntroductionCurrent guidelines recommend at least three months of guideline ‐directed medical therapy (GDMT) for patients with a new onset of nonischemic cardiomyopathy (NICM) and left bundle branch block (LBBB) prior to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). For patients who do not receive optimal GDMT, response to CRT is unknown.Materials and MethodsPatients with NICM and LBBB with QRS> 120 ms were identified among all patients who underwent CRT. Patients who received GDMT for> three months before CRT were compared to those who did not. Among 38 patients who met inclusion criteria, 24 received optimal GDMT prio...

Uninterrupted Anticoagulation with Non ‐Vitamin K Antagonist Oral Anticoagulants in Atrial Fibrillation Catheter Ablation: Lessons Learned from Randomized Trials
Catheter ablation has been established as a rhythm control strategy in select patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) who have failed or wish to avoid anti ‐arrhythmic drugs. Uninterrupted oral anticoagulation with vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) peri‐ablation is associated with a lower risk of thromboembolic and bleeding complications as compared to interrupted oral anticoagulation and bridging heparin. However, a substantial portion of patients with AF are treated with non‐vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs). Herein, we perform an in‐depth review and comparison of three recent randomized trials of uninte...

Associations of ideal cardiovascular health with GlycA, a novel inflammatory marker: The Multi ‐Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis
BackgroundUnhealthy lifestyles and inflammation contribute to cardiovascular disease (CVD). GlycA is a novel biomarker of systemic inflammation representing post ‐translational glycosylation of acute phase reactants and associated with increased clinical CVD risk.HypothesisWe hypothesized that ideal cardiovascular health (CVH), as assessed by (higher) Life's Simple 7 (LS7) scores, would be associated with lower GlycA levels among individuals free of CVD in a multiethnic community ‐based population.MethodsThis was a cross ‐sectional study of 6479 Multi‐Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis participants [53% women; mean ag...

Utilization of Palliative Care in Patients Hospitalized with Heart Failure: A Contemporary National Perspective
BackgroundDespite advances in therapy, heart failure (HF) patients have significant symptom burden, and poor quality of life. However, data on palliative care (PC) utilization in this population are scarce. We sought to assess national trends in PC utilization in patients admitted with acute HF.MethodsAdults hospitalized with HF without acute coronary syndrome were identified in the National inpatient sample. Palliative care was identified using ICD ‐9‐CM‐Code V66.7. Trends in PC utilization, its predictors and its association with length‐of‐stay and cost were assessed.ResultsA total of 939,680 HF patients were h...

Evaluation of cystatin C and neutrophil gelatinase ‐associated lipocalin as predictors of mortality in patients undergoing percutaneous mitral valve repair (MitraClip)
BackgroundCompromised renal function is a major risk factor that is strongly associated with poor outcome in patients with mitral regurgitation (MR) and heart failure. Cystatin C, a cysteine protease inhibitor, has been used as a specific and sensitive biomarker of renal function. Neutrophil gelatinase ‐associated lipocalin (NGAL) is another sensitive biomarker that specifically indicates functional and structural kidney damage. The aim of the present study was to determine the predictive value of serum cystatin C and urinary NGAL as indicators of mortality in patients undergoing percutaneous mi tral valve repair (PMVR)....
