Patients Fare Just as Well If Their Nonemergency Angioplasty Is Performed at Hospitals without Cardiac Surgery Capability

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Hospitals that do not have cardiac surgery capability can perform nonemergency angioplasty and stent implantation as safely as hospitals that do offer cardiac surgery. That is the finding of the nation’s first large, randomized study to assess whether patients do just as well having nonemergency angioplasty performed at smaller, community hospitals that do not offer cardiac surgery.

High Blood Pressure and Pregnancy: Short- and Long-Term Consequences

American Society of Nephrology (ASN)

Highlights: 1) A test done mid-pregnancy accurately predicts which women will later develop preeclampsia, a late-pregnancy disorder characterized by high blood pressure and excess protein in the urine. Left untreated, preeclampsia can lead to serious—even fatal—complications for a pregnant woman and her baby. 2) Women with high blood pressure during pregnancy risk experiencing high blood pressure, kidney problems, and stroke in the future compared to women with normal blood pressure during pregnancy.

Researchers Identify Factors Associated with Increased Risk of Blood Clot within Coronary Stent

JAMA - Journal of the American Medical Association

Patients with certain genes or specific factors related to use of the anti-clotting drug clopidogrel are more likely to experience a blood clot within a coronary stent shortly after placement, according to a study in the October 26 issue of JAMA.

Take Your Blood Pressure Meds Before Bed

American Society of Nephrology (ASN)

1) Patients who take at least one blood pressure-lowering medication at bedtime have better control of their blood pressure and are less likely to experience heart problems than patients who take medications in the morning. 2) Sleep-time blood pressure is a better measure of heart health than wake-time blood pressure. 3) About one out of three U.S. adults has high blood pressure.

Novel Therapeutic Target Identified To Decrease Triglycerides and Increase “Good” Cholesterol

NYU Langone Health

Researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center today announce findings published in the October 20 issue of Nature that show for the first time the inhibition of both microRNA-33a and microRNA-33b (miR-33a/b) with chemically modified anti-miR oligonucleotides markedly suppress triglyceride levels and cause a sustained increase in high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) “good” cholesterol.
