Wearable Ultrasound Patch Monitors Blood Pressure Deep Inside Body

University of California San Diego

A new wearable ultrasound patch that non-invasively monitors blood pressure in arteries deep beneath the skin could help people detect cardiovascular problems earlier on and with greater precision. In tests, the patch performed as well as some clinical methods to measure blood pressure. Applications include real-time, continuous monitoring of blood pressure changes in patients with heart or lung disease, as well as patients who are critically ill or undergoing surgery.

University of Illinois at Chicago

A new $3 million, five-year grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute will allow researchers to determine whether a unique program designed to educate people with uncontrolled hypertension — also known as high blood pressure — about the importance of getting their blood pressure under control can help reduce the risk of developing chronic and expensive-to-treat secondary cardiovascular conditions among this high-risk group.

3D Virtual Simulation Gets to the ‘Heart’ of Irregular Heartbeats

Johns Hopkins Medicine

In a proof of concept study, scientists at Johns Hopkins report they have successfully performed 3D personalized virtual simulations of the heart to accurately identify where cardiac specialists should electrically destroy cardiac tissue to stop potentially fatal irregular and rapid heartbeats in patients with scarring in the heart. The retrospective analysis of 21 patients and prospective study of five patients with ventricular tachycardia, the researchers say, demonstrate that 3D simulation-guided procedures are worthy of expanded clinical trials.

Changes in Mitochondrial DNA Control how Nuclear DNA Mutations Are Expressed in Cardiomyopathy

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Differences in the DNA within the mitochondria, the energy-producing structures within cells, can determine the severity and progression of heart disease caused by a nuclear DNA mutation. When combined with a nuclear DNA mutation in mice, one mitochondrial variant made heart disease worse, while another variant conferred protection.
