Higher CAC Burden Associated With Greater SCD Risk, Regardless of ASCVD Risk Factors

A higher burden of coronary artery calcium (CAC) may be associated with a higher risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD), regardless of the presence of risk factors for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), according to a study published in JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging and presented at ACC.22.

EDIT-CMD: What is Effect of Diltiazem in ANOCA Patients?

Treatment with diltiazem for six weeks is not associated with reduced coronary vasomotor dysfunction (CVDys) or improved angina symptoms or quality of life (QOL) among patients with angina and nonobstructive coronary artery disease (ANOCA), according to results of the EDIT-CMD trial presented at ACC.22 and simultaneously published in JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging.

Journal of the American College of Cardiology
Improving HF Care With Language Interpreters in Care Team

Integrating language interpreters into heart failure (HF) care teams for HF patients with limited English proficiency could improve the discharge process and help reduce disparities, according to a study published in JACC: Heart Failure and presented at ACC.22.

Journal of the American College of Cardiology
AVV Regurgitation Post-Fontan Associated With Higher Mortality, Transplantation Risk Only in RV-Dominant Patients

Moderate or high atrioventricular valve (AVV) regurgitation after a Fontan procedure may be associated with a greater risk of mortality or transplantation, but only in patients with right ventricular (RV) dominance, according to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology and presented at ACC.22.

Journal of the American College of Cardiology
Is Same-Day Discharge Post-TAVR Safe, Feasible in 'Carefully Selected' Patients?

Same-day discharge following transfemoral TAVR may be safe and feasible with careful patient selection, according to two studies presented at ACC.22 and published in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions.

Journal of the American College of Cardiology
Study Using NCDR Data Finds Leaks After LAAO Heighten Risk of Bleeding, Thromboembolic Events

Patients who had leakage to the left atrial appendage due to incomplete device sealing after left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) experienced more thromboembolic and bleeding events within a year following their procedure compared with patients who had no leaking, according to a study presented at ACC.22 and simultaneously published in JACC: Clinical Electrophysiology.
