In the setting of a failed small (<23 mm) surgical valve, a self-expanding Evolut (R/PRO/PRO+) valve (SEV) compared with a balloon-expandable SAPIEN (3/ULTRA) valve (BEV) for a valve-in-valve (ViV) TAVR was associated with greater improvements in the primary endpoint of valve hemodynamics measured by Doppler echocardiography, according to a late-breaking clinical trial presented during EuroPCR 2022 and simultaneously published in JACC.
The frequency of moderate or greater paravalvular aortic regurgitation was three-fold lower after transfemoral TAVI using the second-generation ACURATE neo2 valve vs. the first-generation ACURATE neo valve, according to a late-breaking clinical trial presented at EuroPCR 2022 and simultaneously published in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions.
Using a rigorous protocol of best practices for forearm radial artery occlusion (RAO) prevention, traditional transradial artery access (TRA) and distal radial artery (DRA) access for PCI offered equally low rates of occlusion (0.91% vs. 0.31%, respectively; p=0.29), according to results of the DISCO RADIAL trial presented during EuroPCR 2022 and simultaneously published in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions.
A paper published in JACC identifies a lack of standardized support for trainees who become parents during cardiovascular training. The paper adds to growing research surrounding gender workforce disparities in the field of cardiology, where just 21.3% of fellows are women.
A review paper published in JACC calls for a concerted effort to overcome obstacles faced by vascular medicine specialists in order to expand the field, ease the burden of vascular disease and optimize patient outcomes.
States with laws requiring CPR/automated external defibrillator (AED) training in high school have higher rates of bystander CPR after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) than states with no CPR education laws, according to a study published in JACC.
Nearly half of patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) were not being treated with a statin and a quarter were not on a high-intensity statin in a large cohort of insured patients, according to a study published in JACC.
Older breast cancer survivors with cardiometabolic risk factors who restrict food intake to eight hours during the weekday, followed by 16 hours of fasting, may lower their risk of cardiovascular disease after a few weeks, according to a research letter published in JACC: CardioOncology.
