Fatty Acid Intake And Reduced Cardiovascular Event Risk

Fatty Acid Intake And Reduced Cardiovascular Event Risk Overview Recent research has raised questions about the purported benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids in improving endothelial thickness and preventing cardiovascular diseases like coronary atherosclerosis and hypertension. To address this, we conducted a rigorous analysis using Mendelian randomization, leveraging publicly available genetic data from

Esophageal Cooling Proves Helpful For Injury Prevention During Cardiac Ablation

Esophageal Cooling Proves Helpful For Injury Prevention During Cardiac Ablation Overview In this study, proactive esophageal cooling, cleared by the FDA to reduce the risk of esophageal injury during radiofrequency cardiac ablation procedures, was investigated for its impact on procedure efficiency. The research aimed to assess the change in electrophysiology (EP) lab

Rheumatoid Arthritis And Atrial Fibrillation Connection

Rheumatoid Arthritis And Atrial Fibrillation Connection Overview Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), an autoimmune condition affecting multiple organs, has garnered attention for its potential link to adverse cardiovascular outcomes, including atrial fibrillation (AF). Yet, the precise association remains elusive, with conflicting findings in the literature. Our study sought to elucidate this relationship and explore

Peri-Operative Stroke Risk During Major Surgery

Peri-Operative Stroke Risk During Major Surgery Overview This study delves into the incidence and risk factors associated with peri-operative stroke, a rare yet significant complication of surgery. Drawing on retrospective register data from 23 hospitals in Sweden spanning 2007 to 2014, the research aimed to identify independent risk factors influencing stroke occurrence

Constipation Effect On Readmission In Heart Failure Patients

Constipation Effect On Readmission In Heart Failure Patients Constipation, a prevalent gastrointestinal disorder in Japan, affects 34.8 per 1000 individuals, rising with age and linked to factors like reduced dietary fiber and physical activity. Chronic constipation, unlike other functional gastrointestinal diseases, exhibits a significantly higher mortality risk, particularly notable in cardiovascular

Protein In Diet From Plant Or Animal: Cardiovascular Outcomes In Men

Protein In Diet From Plant Or Animal: Cardiovascular Outcomes In Men Overview In this cross-sectional study involving 357 elderly men, the research aimed to explore the relationship between dietary protein intake—both total and categorized as plant or animal protein—and cardiovascular outcomes and inflammatory factors. Utilizing a reliable food frequency questionnaire (FFQ) to

Bariatric Surgery In Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Patients

Bariatric Surgery In Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Patients Overview Existing research has hinted at a link between obesity and increased risk of acute cardiovascular events. Bariatric surgery has been shown to mitigate this risk; however, its impact on patients with both obesity and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) remains unclear. This study aimed to assess whether

Retinal Nerve Fiber Wedge Defects In Glaucoma And Heart Disease

Retinal Nerve Fiber Wedge Defects In Glaucoma And Heart Disease The Study The study aimed to investigate the connection between localized vascular and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) loss and an individual's genetic predisposition to both glaucoma and cardiovascular disease. Researchers used a statistical tool called polygenic risk scores (PRS) to assess

Antithyroid Drug Therapy And Cardiovascular Morbidity

Antithyroid Drug Therapy And Cardiovascular Morbidity Overview The impact of thyroid function test (TFT) variability and its link to adverse health outcomes in antithyroid drug (ATD) therapy remains an unexplored area. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between TFT variability and cardiovascular morbidity during ATD therapy. Conducted at Tampere University Hospital,
