Getting to the Heart of Mapping Arrhythmia-Related Excitations

Atrial fibrillation is the most prevalent form of cardiac arrhythmia, affecting up to 6 million people in the U.S. alone. Common treatments for severe forms of the erratic beating phenomenon are controversial, and guided by detection methods that are not yet standardized or fully refined. But research from a group of cross-disciplinary scientists, published this week in the journal Chaos, offers a computational approach to understanding the important factors involved in measuring cardiac excitation waves.

UNC School of Medicine cardiologist Anil Gehi, MD, will use a $1.7 million grant from the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation to further innovate a care model, launched in 2015, that reduced hospitalizations for patients with atrial fibrillation (Afib) presenting in the emergency room by more than 30 percentage points in its first year.

Study Explores the Biology of Mending a Broken Heart

Early research results suggest scientists might be on to a way to preserve heart function after heart attacks or for people with inherited heart defects called congenital cardiomyopathies. Researchers at the Cincinnati Children’s Heart Institute report Sept. 28 in Nature Communications that after simulating heart injury in laboratory mouse models, they stopped or slowed cardiac fibrosis, organ enlargement and preserved heart function by blocking a well-known molecular pathway.

Delayed Diagnosis, Not Gender Affects Women’s Treatment for Heart Disease

Women with heart disease typically receive less complete surgical revascularization with arterial grafts than men do, but not because of gender bias. Instead, factors such as delayed diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD) in women may contribute to the differences in treatment.

Study: Sending Low-risk ER Chest Pain Patients Home Sooner Would Save Healthcare Thousands

DETROIT – A new evaluation to determine whether emergency room patients with chest pain can go home and follow up with their doctor proved 100% safe while shaving nearly a day off their visit and $6500 off their bill.

Expectant Mother’s Elevated Blood Pressure Raises Child’s Risk of Obesity

When expectant mothers have elevated blood pressure during pregnancy, it may raise their children’s risk of developing childhood obesity, according to a study published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
