Multivitamins 'of no benefit' to heart health-Catharine Paddock

Image
A comprehensive analysis of published studies and clinical trials has found no benefit to cardiovascular health from multivitamin and mineral supplement use.
Multivitamins do not benefit heart health, after all. The study authors hope that this will settle the controversial debate about whether the use of multivitamin and mineral supplements are able to prevent strokesheart attacks, and deaths from cardiovascular diseases. A paper on their findings is now published in the journal Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes. "Our study," write the authors, "supports current professional guidelines that recommend against the routine use of [multivitamins and mineral] supplements for the purpose of [cardiovascular disease] prevention in the general population." They suggest that people focus instead on proven ways to promote heart health. "These include a heart-healthy diet, exercise, tobacco cessation, controlling blood pressure and unhealthy cholesterol le…

New potential risk factor for heart failure

Image
A body measure that can be taken in a painless and noninvasive way as easily as stepping onto scales might predict a person's risk of future heart failure. Heart failure affects millions of people around the world. The measure is called leg bioimpedance. Body composition machines use bioimpedance to calculate body fat by measuring how easily weak electrical currents can pass through tissue. Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine in California proposed the measure as a new risk factor for heart failure after analyzing data on over half a million United Kingdom residents aged 49–69. In a paper published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, they report how they found that lower leg bioimpedance was tied to a higher risk of heart failure. Heart failure is a condition in which the heart continues beating but fails to pump enough oxygen-rich blood to meet the needs of organs in the body. In the United States, the condition affects around 5.7 million adults …

Heart Transplant

Image
Overview A heart transplant is an operation in which a failing, diseased heart is replaced with a healthier, donor heart. Heart transplant is a treatment that's usually reserved for people who have tried medications or other surgeries, but their conditions haven't sufficiently improved. While a heart transplant is a major operation, your chance of survival is good, with appropriate follow-up care. When faced with a decision about having a heart transplant, know what to expect of the heart transplant process, the surgery itself, potential risks and follow-up care. Why it's done Heart transplants are performed when other treatments for heart problems haven't worked, leading to heart failure. In adults, heart failure can be caused by several conditions, including: A weakening of the heart muscle (cardiomyopathy)Coronary artery diseaseHeart valve diseaseA heart problem you're born with (congenital heart defect)Dangerous recurring abnormal heart rhythms (ventricular arrh…

Interventional Cardiology

Image
Interventional cardiology is a branch of cardiology that deals specifically with the catheter-based treatment of structural heart diseases. Andreas Gruentzig is considered the father of interventional cardiology after the development of angioplasty by interventional radiologist Charles Dotter. A large number of procedures can be performed on the heart by catheterization. This most commonly involves the insertion of a sheath into the femoral artery (but, in practice, any large peripheral artery or vein) and cannulating the heart under X-ray visualization (most commonly fluoroscopy). The radial artery may also be used for cannulation; this approach offers several advantages, including the accessibility of the artery in most patients, the easy control of bleeding even in anticoagulated patients, the enhancement of comfort because patients are capable of sitting up and walking immediately following the procedure, and the near absence of clinically significant sequelae in patients with a n…

Sports Cardiology

Image
The Emerging World of Sports Cardiology Globally we hold our athletes in the highest regard. Every four years, we send our greatest athletes to represent our country at the Olympic Games. For many of us, the athlete is the epitome of physical health and fitness. However, just like any of us, athletes can suffer from heart disease.

For the young athlete, typically those individuals under age 35, these diseases are most commonly congenital conditions that cause abnormalities in the thickness of the heart muscle, the origins of the heart arteries, or changes in the electrical system of the heart that predispose them to arrhythmias. In the more mature individual, heart disease comes in the form of common disorders such as coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, and arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation I am always surprised that many accomplished endurance athletes have stories filled with lifestyle choices that include poor diets, toxic habits like smoking, and significant family…

What can autopsies teach us about heart disease?-Maria Cohut

Image
Studying the heart after death is a sometimes overlooked source of medical information that could help us to better understand and manage instances of heart disease, researchers argue. Autopsies are an insufficiently tapped resource for gathering information about heart health, several studies argue. This week has seen the publication of a special issue of the journal Circulation dedicated to the role of autopsy in medical research. The studies featured in this special issue speak of how examining the heart after death can tell us so much about cardiovascular health, and how this information might prove vital to the well-being of those alive. "Autopsy is a source of discovery that informs the way we think about disease systemically," says special issue co-editor Dr. Jeffrey E. Saffitz, the chair of the Department of Pathology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, MA. "Atherosclerosis, hypertensiondiabetes, and metabolic syndrome — these are the diseases you…
