No benefit of sodium bicarbonate or acetylcysteine for prevention of complications after angiography: The PRESERVE trialFebruary 20, 2018
In patients undergoing angiography, neither sodium bicarbonate nor acetylcysteine were effective in preventing a composite outcome of death, need for dialysis, or persistent kidney injury.
The Food and Drug Administration announced today that it has approved a new technology to produce the country's own supply of the radioisotope Technetium-99m.
Patients with stable chest pain who have high-risk plaque as identified by coronary computed tomographic angiography may have a higher risk for MACE.
MRI conducted at a strength of 1.5 Tesla is safe for patients with a legacy pacemaker or implantable cardioverter-defibrillator system.
Guidelines for Point-of-Care Use of Transesophageal Echocardiography in Cardiac Arrest ResuscitationDecember 11, 2017
Transesophageal echocardiography offers many clinical benefits in patients with cardiac arrest compared with transthoracic echocardiography.
Heart rate variability can differentiate major depressive disorder from depression in bipolar disorder.
For patients with acute myocarditis with preserved left ventricular ejection fraction and for patients with suspected myocarditis, late gadolinium enhancement on cardiac MRI is associated with worse prognosis.
For patients with CAD, CCTA is associated with reduced incidence of myocardial infarction but no reduction in death or hospitalization.
When compared with other imaging modalities, positron emission tomography offers the greatest diagnostic accuracy for coronary artery disease.
New criteria has been developed for valvular heart disease imaging tests.
A patient presents with new-onset joint pain and is discovered to have a cardiac condition.
Two-dimensional and three-dimensional MRI techniques to measure the thoracic aorta and main pulmonary artery are in close agreement.
Coronary computed tomography angiography is an accurate method of assessing angiographic outcomes after bioresorbable vascular scaffold implantation.
An enhanced MRI detected myocardial macrophage activity within 2 weeks following an acute myocardial infarction.
Chest computed tomography is increasingly being used in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
CCTA-detected obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) improves prediction of MACE in patients with type 2 diabetes.
A nomogram can predict 5, 10, and 15-year survival among adults undergoing coronary artery calcium scoring.
Magnetic resonance imaging appears to be safe in patients with implantable cardiac devices and abandoned leads.
Using routine invasive coronary angiography is beneficial for managing unstable angina.
Cardiac magnetic resonance was superior to transthoracic echocardiogram in identifying a pathologic substrate in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
Researchers tested the efficacy of transcranial doppler monitoring during head-up tilting to evaluate dizziness in patients with Parkinson's disease.
The effect of hypoglycemia on functional outcomes after endovascular thrombectomy differs, depending on collateral status.
Both iFR and FFR groups experienced similar rates of composite nonfatal myocardial infarction, unplanned revascularization, or all-cause death within 1 year post-procedure.
Heterozygous carriers of ANGPTL3 loss-of-function mutations demonstrated a 17% reduction in circulating triglycerides and a 12% reduction in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol.
Cardiovascular disease risk in type 1 diabetes increased with the development of each additional major ECG abnormality.
High-risk patients experienced the same rate of contrast-induced nepropathy as patients who received usual care when guideline-recommended prophylactic hydration was not utilized, according to researchers.
Cardiac MRI should be used to differentiate Takotsubo cardiomyopathy from similar conditions.
Coronary computed tomographic angiography does not reduce cardiac events in patients with suspected coronary artery disease.
Patients with diabetes had more CV risk factors and higher rates of noninvasive testing positivity as well as 60-day aspirin, statin, ACE inhibitor, and ARB use.
A multiple biomarker score has been developed for the prediction of MACE in coronary angiography.
