It has been estimated that cardiovascular disease (CVD) claims 18.6 million lives per year. As World Heart Day seeks to raise awareness on CVD prevention and management, what are some ways your patients can reduce their risk?
Echocardiographic phenotypes significantly improved the prognostic performance on top of the ARIC HF risk score, and discriminative values were “consistently observed on top of traditionally defined cardiac structure or function abnormalities.”
The risk for recurrent MACE was high among survivors of a first ever acute coronary syndrome with a substantial number of these being fatal; 34.4% had MACE within 1 year and 48.4% in 3 years.
This study evaluated the effects of hemodynamic-guided management of heart failure on composite mortality and heart failure events.

Should cardiologists be looking at patients’ mental health as well as their physical health? Research has suggested that a patient’s mental health disorder and outlook may play a role in cardiovascular health. What are the different ways mental health affects cardiovascular disease?
Investigators sought to determine the prevalence of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and establish its prognostic value in patients with heart failure.
