JACC in a Flash
Featured topics and Editors’ Picks from all of ACC’s JACC Journals.
How Can We Create an Anti-Racist Culture in Cardiology?
While the strategic recruitment of underrepresented minorities to training programs and practices has been a priority to help increase racial diversity in the cardiovascular profession, addressing racism that underrepresented minority trainees and practitioners face in the workplace has not, according to a paper published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. This racism comes in the form of microaggressions and biases from patients, colleagues and the system they work within.
Does Statin Therapy Prescription Vary by Appointment Time?
Clinicians may be less likely to prescribe statin therapy to patients during afternoon appointments than they are during morning appointments, according to a research letter published the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Can PFO Closure Reduce Migraines?
Patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure in addition to medical therapy may be associated with significant reductions in the number of migraine days and attacks when compared with medical treatment, according to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Out-of-Hospital Deaths Account For About One-Third of 30-Day Mortality Following Transfemoral TAVR
About one-third of deaths within 30 days of transfemoral TAVR occur out of the hospital, according to a study published in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions.
CV Risk Associated With Brain Hypometabolism in Asymptomatic Middle-Aged Adults
Cardiovascular risk may be associated with brain hypometabolism in asymptomatic middle-aged individuals, with hypertension being a modifiable cardiovascular risk factor showing the strongest association, according to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Are Hypertensive Disorders of Pregnancy Associated With Structural Heart Changes?
Women with a history of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy may have major differences in the structure and function of the heart a decade after pregnancy vs. women whose blood pressure during pregnancy was normal, according to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
AFib, Atrial Flutter in COVID-19, Influenza Patients Suggests Inflammatory Response
The incidence of atrial fibrillation (AFib) or flutter and associated mortality in patients with COVID-19 or influenza suggests AFib or atrial flutter may be a generalized response to inflammation of severe viral illness, according to a study published in JACC: Clinical Electrophysiology.
Do Female Cardiovascular Disease Patients With Female Physicians Fare Better?
Female physicians have better patient outcomes compared with their male peers, while female patients are less likely to receive guideline-recommended care when treated by a male physician, according to a systematic review from ACC's Cardiovascular Disease in Women Committee published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
