Abstract null null Introduction: Patients with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD) have largely been excluded from randomized control trials (RCTs) in heart failure (HF). This creates a paucity of high quality evidence for guideline directed medical therapy (GDMT), particularly in patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) and CKD. Methods: This is a systematic review looking at the patterns and rates of inclusion of CKD in RCTs among patients with HFrEF. The search inc...

For almost 20 years, therapeutic hypothermia has been a cornerstone of modern post-cardiac arrest care lowering mortality and improving neurological compared to conventional therapy. This was challenged by the first TTM-trial in 2013, which did not show a benefit for hypothermia at 33°C compared to controlled normothermia at 36°C. Now, the TTM2 trial showed no benefit of hypothermia for compared to fever prevention alone. While TTM1 and TTM2 suggest that hypothermia might not be helpful, a deep ...

The use of methamphetamines is growing worldwide with cardiovascular disease as the leading cause of mortality and morbidity. Long-term use of methamphetamines is associated with malignant hypertension, myocardial ischemia, pulmonary hypertension, and methamphetamines-associated cardiomyopathy. These effects are noted to be dose-dependent and potentially reversible with discontinuation of methamphetamines in the early stages when there is limited or no myocardial fibrosis. This review aims to 1)...

ABSTRACT null null Background null ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is one of the fatal complications following Covid-19. We aimed to systematically assess the clinical sequels as well ascardiovascular findings in patients suffering STEMI following Covid-19. null null null Methods null The manuscripts databases includingPubMed, Web of knowledge (ISI), SCOPUS, Embase, and Google Scholar were deeply searched by the two reviewers using the relevant keywords related to the issue co...

Abstract null null Aims: The present study was conducted with the aim of identifying, and summarizing the characteristics of ACS registries at national, multinational and international levels. null Methods and Results: Literature was searched using keywords in the title/abstract without any time limit ending in March, 2021. After excluding duplicates, two reviewers independently reviewed the titles/abstracts and full text for inclusion..Each reviewer independently extracted the characteristics o...

Genetic polymorphisms or variations, randomly distributed in a population, may cause drug-gene response variations. Investigation into these polymorphisms may identify novel mechanisms contributing to a specific disease process. Such investigation necessitates the use of Mendelian randomization, an analytical method that uses genetic variants as instrumental variables for modifiable risk factors that affect population health1. In the past decade, advances in our understanding of genetic polymorp...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a rare but more frequently recognized cause of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Due to the low incidence rate of this condition, there are no consensus guidelines to treat this clinical entity. Most of the information on the clinical presentation and management of SCAD originates from case reports and series; however, there has not been yet a prospective randomized study to guide treatment of SCAD. It is mostly seen in women and particularly those o...

Systemic lupus erythematous (SLE) is an autoimmune disease with a wide range of cardiovascular complications. The main manifestations include diseases of the coronary arteries, valves, pericardium, and myocardium. Multimodality cardiovascular imaging techniques are critical for evaluating the extent of cardiac manifestations in SLE patients, which can provide valuable prognostic information. However, their utility has previously not been well-defined. This review provides a state-of-the-art upda...

Abstract null null Introduction null Transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVr) has shown to reduce heart failure (HF) rehospitalization and all cause mortality. However, the 30-day all-cause readmission remains high (∼15%) after TMVr. Therefore, we sought to develop and validate a 30-day readmission risk calculator for TMVr. null null null Methods null Nationwide Readmission Database from January 2014 to December 2017 was utilized. A linear calculator was developed to determine the probability fo...

Abstract null null High blood pressure (BP) is one of the main modifiable risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and preventing it greatly reduces the vascular consequences of aging and, along with intensive treatment of hypertension, eliminates a large portion of the burden of CVD-related mortality. Many meta-analyses and studies proved that regular aerobic exercise (AE) reduces BP but most of these studies consider only hypertensive populations or only AE but not resistant exercise or t...
