JACC in a Flash
Featured topics and Editors' Picks from all of ACC's JACC Journals.
A robust association was found between elevated LDL triglycerides and an increased risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and its individual components (ischemic heart disease [IHD], myocardial infarction [MI], ischemic stroke and peripheral artery disease [PAD]), according to a study published in JACC.
High-sensitivity cardiac Troponin (hs-cTn) assay use in the U.S. is increasing and may be associated with shorter hospital stays, greater use of echocardiography for non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS), and less use of invasive angiography, according to a study published in JACC.
Initiation of novel guideline-directed medical therapies (GDMTs) for patients with heart failure (HF) is delayed compared with other GDMTs, and few patients received target doses of GDMTs requiring uptitration, according to an article published in JACC: Heart Failure.
Social isolation and loneliness may be associated with higher rates of heart failure (HF), but whether or not a person feels lonely is more important in determining risk than if they are actually alone, according to a study published in JACC: Heart Failure.
The development of a multiparametric image-based risk prediction algorithm could be superior in predicting the composite endpoints for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) compared with the current model based on conventional risk factors, according to an article published in JACC: Heart Failure.
