Review Explores Therapeutic Potential of Ketone Therapy For CV Disease
There is growing evidence that ketone bodies may be beneficial for patients with cardiovascular disease regardless of the method of delivery used to increase ketone delivery to the heart. A Journal of the American College of Cardiology review paper examines emerging evidence regarding the effects of ketone bodies on the heart and the potential for ketone therapy as a cardiovascular intervention in these patients.
High-Sensitivity Troponin Assays to Help Diagnose, Triage Patients?
An understanding of the diagnostic and prognostic utility of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin (hs-cTn) assays may help clinicians better diagnose and triage patients appropriately, according to a review paper published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Can Time in Systolic BP Target Range Predict Adverse CV Events?
Time in systolic blood pressure (BP) target range may independently predict major adverse cardiovascular event risk, according to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Do Hypertension Disorders of Pregnancy Increase Risk of Premature Maternal Mortality?
Women who experienced hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDPs) but did not develop chronic hypertension may have a greater risk of premature mortality, specifically cardiovascular disease-related deaths, according to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Is POTS a Long-Haul Post-COVID-19 Symptom?
Months after a COVID-19 infection, patients may experience "long-haul" symptoms like rapid heart rate, dizziness upon standing and lightheadedness consistent with a diagnosis of postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), according to a clinical case report published in JACC: Case Reports.
Racial Disparities Persist, Minimal Change in Death Rates For CVD, Hypertension, Diabetes
In the last 20 years, Black adults living in rural areas of the U.S. have experienced high mortality rates due to diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and stroke compared with white adults. According to a research letter published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, racial disparities improved minimally in rural areas over the last two decades, with larger improvements occurring in urban areas.
Should Cardiac Rehabilitation Be Standard of Care For HF Patients?
Multiple studies have demonstrated the safety, benefits and cost-effectiveness of cardiac rehabilitation in patients with heart failure (HF), however, it remains underused. A new perspective from the ACC Heart Failure and Transplant Section Leadership Council, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, reviews existing evidence and guidelines, and provides guidance for the implementation of cardiac rehabilitation in patients with HF.
What is the Future of Cardio-Oncology in Cuba?
Over the last several years, the Latin America region has seen an increased population life expectancy, and cardiovascular disease and cancer are now the top causes of death in Cuba. A new international perspective published in JACC: CardioOncology evaluates the present and future state of the rapidly growing cardio-oncology specialty in the country.
Are Ultra-Processed Foods Associated With Increased Risk of CVD?
Ultra-processed foods account for 58% of total energy in the average U.S. diet, but diet is a modifiable risk factor in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. A study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that higher consumption of ultra-processed foods may be associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease incidence and mortality, with each additional daily serving found to further increase risk.
