Lack of morphometric evidence for ventricular compaction in humans
In conclusion, compaction in human development is not supported while rapid intrinsic growth of the compact wall is supported in all species. If compaction takes place, it likely plays a much smaller role in determining wall architecture than intrinsic growth of the compact wall.PMID:33840532 | DOI:10.1016/j.jjcc.2021.03.006 (Source: Journal of Cardiology)

These mitochondrial dynamics are reported to be associated with pulmonary hypertension (PH). PH is divided into 5 groups, including pulmonary artery hypertension (PAH) and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH), based on its pathogenesis. However, it is still unknown whether and how miRNAs related to mitochondrial dynamics (MD) affect PAH and CTEPH.METHODS: We investigated patients who underwent right heart catheterization ...

However, the contribution of renal tubulointerstitial damage to the predictive value for cardiovascular events has not been established. The aim of this study was to elucidate whether renal tubulointerstitial damage is associated with the occurrence of cardiac death and recurrence of MI in patients who have had MI.METHODS AND ...

Non-cardiovascular disorders in a contemporary cardiovascular intensive care unit in Japan
This study examined 490 consecutive admissions to a closed CICU at the Nippon Medical School Hospital from January to December 2017. Characteristics, diagnoses, treatments, and outcomes of admitted patients were identified.RESULTS: The most common primary diagnosis was acute coronary syndrome (50.4%), followed by acute heart failure (20.0%), arrhythmia (6.7%), and non-cardiovascular diseases (3.7%). The mortality rate and median length of stay (LOS) in the CICU were 4.7% and 4 (interquartile range, 2-8) days, respectively. Of all patients, 42.2% (n = 207) developed non-cardiovascular complications such as acute respiratory...

Prognostic value of non-acute high sensitive troponin-T for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in adults with congenital heart disease: A systematic review
CONCLUSION: More scientific research investigating the prognostic value of hs-TnT in stable ACHD is needed and the clinical relevance to guide aftercare has still to be determined.PMID:33678488 | DOI:10.1016/j.jjcc.2021.02.008 (Source: Journal of Cardiology)
