Recently (Nov. 2014), a study called the ELITE study by Dr. Howard Hodis and his associates at USC was presented at The American Heart Association. This study helps to confirm some very good news for women.

Abstract Background—The goal of this study was to compare angiographic interpretation of coronary arteriograms by sites in community practice versus those made by a centralized angiographic core laboratory. Methods and Results—The study population consisted of 2013 American College of Cardiology–National Cardiovascular Data Registry (ACC–NCDR) records with 2- and 3- vessel coronary disease from 54 sites in 2004 to 2007. The primary analysis c...

WASHINGTON — In the SIRS study, methylprednisolone did not reduce rates of death or major morbidity, but was associated with increased risk for MI in high-risk patients at 30 days following cardiac surgery with the use of cardiopulmonary bypass. Richard Whitlock, MD, PhD, and colleagues examined ...

We recently turned our clocks forward by an hour for spring, but new research suggests certain at-risk individuals may be more likely to have a heart attack after the time change.

Cardiologist Speaks Out On The Myth of Bad Saturated Fat, Stating Carbs Are More Damaging Than Butter

A Cardiologist is speaking out stating that almost four decades of advice to cut back on saturated fats found in foods such as butter and meat has paradoxically increased our cardiovascular risks.

www.medicalnewstoday.com has expanded on a topic "Heart transplant patients benefit from high-intensity interval exercise"

"High-intensity interval training can help clinically stable heart transplant recipients achieve increased exercise capacity, maintain control of blood pressure and gain improved resting heart rate when compared with moderate exercise, according to a new study published in the American Journal of Transplantation.

There are over 2,000 heart transplants that take place in the US annually, most occurring between the ages of 50-64 years, with around 70% of cases male.

High-intensity exercise has been deemed safe in heart transplant patients, with the effect on exercise capacity and blood pressure control superior to moderate-intensity training.
Survival rates in solid organ transplant - for example heart, liver and kidney - have improved significantly, with around 88% of patients surviving the first year after transplant surgery and 75% surviving for 5 years. The 10-year survival rate is around 56%.

After surgery, most heart transplant patients can return to their normal levels of activity. However, less than 30% return to work for many different reasons.

With these improved survival rates, there has been an increased focus on long-term outcomes following transplant including physical function, health-related quality-of-life and cardiovascular mortality.

Exercise has the potential to affect these outcomes; however, research on the optimal timing, type, dose of exercise, mode of delivery and relevant outcomes is limited.

Infectious Disease | The incidence of herpes zoster increased the risk for stroke within the first 6 months of infection, according to researchers from the United Kingdom. However, antiviral therapy may decrease that risk. “There is mounting epidemiological evidence from different populations using different study designs of strong associations between acute systemic infections and risk of acute vascular

Cardiology | The American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology and Heart Rhythm Society have released the 2014 Guideline for the Management of Patients with Atrial Fibrillation. The update, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Circulation and Heart Rhythm, is intended to supersede the guideline released by the organizations in 2006, as well as two focused updates

Cardiologists have called it their greatest unmet need — a test to predict when a patient is about to have a heart attack. Scientists in California last year detected elevated clusters of endothelial cells in the blood of heart attack victims. Now researchers at Utah’s Intermountain Medical Center have identified a genetic signal in the blood that surfaces days before a heart attack. “We think it’s an interesting signal that ...
