JACC in a Flash
Featured topics and Editors' Picks from all of ACC's JACC Journals.
Renal denervation (RDN) with the multi-electrode Symplicity Spyral system in patients with hypertension and not taking antihypertensives was associated with decreased plasma renin activity (PRA) and aldosterone levels at three months compared with a blinded sham-controlled group, according to a study presented at ACC.21 and published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
High-sensitivity (hs) contemporary cardiac troponin (cTnT) implementation resulted in a marked increase in the number of patients diagnosed with myocardial injury and myocardial infarction (MI), particularly in women and patients with type 2 MI, according to a paper presented at ACC.21 and published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
A new in-hospital mortality risk model that incorporates contemporary variables that reflect clinical severity may be accurate in predicting mortality risk following PCI, according to a study presented at ACC.21 and published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
During isolated CABG, the use of intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) may contribute to a lower operative mortality rate for high-risk patients, according to a study presented at ACC.21 and published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Coronary intravascular lithotripsy (IVL) may facilitate stent implantation in patients with calcified coronary lesions, and aortic valve replacement (AVR) may be associated with reduced all-cause mortality in patients with low-gradient aortic stenosis (AS), according to two separate interventional research studies presented at ACC.21 and published in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions.
Factors associated with atherosclerosis burden and ischemia may be more strongly associated with patient outcomes than pericoronary adipose tissue (PCAT) computed tomography attenuation (PCATa) scans of the right coronary artery (RCA), according to a study presented at ACC.21 and published in JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging.
Individualized nutritional support reduced the risk for mortality and major cardiovascular events compared with standard hospital food among patients hospitalized with chronic heart failure (HF), according to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Acute kidney injury (AKI) following peripheral vascular intervention (PVI) is not uncommon, and the AKI risk model may help clinicians estimate AKI risk and deploy strategies aimed at reducing risk of AKI after PVI, according to a study published in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions.
Seropositive COVID-19 patients may not be more susceptible to cardiovascular abnormalities than seronegative individuals six months after a mild COVID-19 infection, according to research presented at the EuroCMR 2021 Virtual Meeting and simultaneously published in JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging.
Patients hospitalized with COVID-19 may be at risk of developing heart failure (HF) even if they do not have a previous history of cardiovascular disease or cardiovascular risk factors, according to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Prosthesis-patient mismatch (PPM) following TAVR with supra-annular valves may not be associated with increased mortality or valve-related readmissions at one year, according to a study published in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions.
