Cholesterol Crystals Are Sure Sign a Heart Attack May Loom

A new Michigan State University study on 240 emergency room patients shows just how much of a role a person’s cholesterol plays, when in a crystallized state, during a heart attack.

ARCADIA Trial Will Test Link Between Stroke and a Common Heart Condition

A new clinical trial led by investigators at NewYork-Presbyterian, Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) and Weill Cornell Medicine aims to identify and treat what may be a common underlying cause of recurrent strokes.

Researchers report encouraging preclinical results as they pursue elusive therapies that can repair scarred and poorly functioning heart tissues after cardiac injury. Scientists from the Cincinnati Children’s Heart Institute inhibited a protein that helps regulate the heart’s response to adrenaline, alleviating the disease processes in mouse models and human cardiac cells. Their data publishes Aug. 22 in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

Researchers at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Mayo Clinic have compiled peer-reviewed evidence and crafted a guideline designed to help physicians and medical centers stop the use of a widely ordered blood test that adds no value in evaluating patients with suspected heart attack.

Cardiovascular Aging Symposium Explores Relationship Between Dysfunction and Disease Development

During the “Novel Implications for Blood Flow and Vascular Dysfunction in Non-cardiovascular Related Disease” symposium at the APS Cardiovascular Aging: New Frontiers and Old Friends conference, researchers will present findings that emphasize the interaction between age-related cardiovascular dysfunction and disease whose risk increases with age.

E-Cigarette Use Accelerates Effects of Cardiovascular Aging

A new study suggests that a single exposure to e-cigarette (e-cig) vapor may be enough to impair vascular function. Researchers from West Virginia University will present findings today at the Cardiovascular Aging: New Frontiers and Old Friends meeting in Westminster, Colo.
