Bariatric surgery appears to reduce the rate of hospitalizations for stable angina pectoris (SAP) in obese adults, a study has shown.
Complement-dependent inflammation may play a role in the development of cardiovascular disease, specifically myocardial infarction, according to a new study.
The ABO blood group may eventually be incorporated into clinical schemes of prediction of congenital heart disease, according to a new study.
Interventions to hyperlipidaemia, improvements in diet and physical fitness are important in preventing cardiovascular risk factors in Chinese postmenopausal women, a new study reports.
Establishing the mortality burden of valvular heart disease (VHD) based on premortem clinical information may be prone to routine underestimation, with a recent study reporting that such information is highly specific but relatively insensitive for determining the cause of death at autopsy.
Home blood pressure (BP) monitoring every 3 months without other interventions contributes to small BP reductions, with greater improvements over time, according to a new study.
Haemostatic dysfunction may predict high transfusion burden, bleeding in neonates with hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy
Initial haemostatic dysfunction is a risk factor for high transfusion burden and bleeding, and is common in neonates who experience moderate-to-severe hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy, according to a new study.
Tissue factor-containing circulating microparticles tied to thrombotic load in acute myocardial infarction
The thrombotic burden in patients with acute myocardial infarction may be examined through tissue factor-, monocyte- and platelet-microparticles, a new study reports.
An association exists between decreased left ventricular stroke volume (LVSV) and tolerance for low-grade exercise among individuals who have stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), suggests a Japanese study.
Eating natto, a traditional Japanese soy food that contains a potent fibrinolytic enzyme, may help reduce mortality due to cardiovascular disease (CVD), a recent population-based cohort study suggests.
