Varied Nightly Bedtime, Sleep Duration Linked to CVD Risk – Medscape

Posted: at 1:41 am

People who frequently alter the amount of sleep and time they go to bed each night are twofold more likely to develop cardiovascular disease, independent of traditional CVD risk factors, new research suggests. Prior studies have focused on shift workers because night shift work will influence circadian rhythm and increase CVD risk. But it is increasingly recognized that circadian disruption may occur outside of shift work and accumulate over time, particularly given modern lifestyle factors such as increased use of mobile devices and television at night, said study coauthor Tianyi Huang, ScD, MSc, of Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts.

MR Improves in Half of Low-Flow/Low-Gradient AS Patients Undergoing TAVR – TCTMD

Posted: February 15, 2020 at 12:46 am

Most patients with low-flow/low-gradient aortic stenosis (AS) have some form of mitral regurgitation (MR), but transcatheter aortic valve replacement improves MR in roughly half of this group, according to a new analysis of the TOPAS-TAVI registry. For those who do not see an improvement in MR following TAVR, however, there is a significantly increased risk of all-cause and cardiac mortality, as well as rehospitalization for cardiac causes, at 1 year when compared with patients who had an improvement in MR. Its a complex population, said senior investigator Josep Rods-Cabau, MD (Quebec Heart & Lung Institute/Laval University, Quebec City, Canada), referring to patients with low-flow/low-gradient AS and MR.

Advancing an oral drug for pulmonary arterial hypertension – Penn: Office of University Communications

Posted: at 12:46 am

In pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), high blood pressure in the lungs arteries causes the heart to work extra hard to pump blood to the lungs and around the rest of the body. The condition is rare but deadly, and current treatments are expensive and have side effects and inconvenient modes of delivery. Continue reading
