Is obesity a risk factor for readmission after acute myocardial infarction?

Feb 04, 2020

Hospital readmissions are a major concern in terms of both cost and quality of care. The purpose of this study was to determine which patients were more likely to experience hospital readmissions afte...

Utility of discovery approach using proteomics to create a biomarker profile for coronary microvascular dysfunction.

Feb 04, 2020

Coronary microvascular dysfunction (CMD) is a complex disease, difficult to diagnose and often requires advanced imaging. We used mass spectrometry (MS) using discovery approach to search for serum pr...

Jan 30, 2020

Ischemic heart disease and congestive heart failure are major contributors to high morbidity and mortality. Approximately 1.5 million cases of myocardial infarction occur annually in the United States...

European survey on acute coronary syndrome diagnosis and revascularisation treatment: Assessing differences in reported clinical practice with a focus on strategies for specific patient cases.

Jan 30, 2020

While different imaging and treatment options are available in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) care, there is a lack of data regarding their use across Europe. We examined the diagnostic and treatment s...

miR-26a-5p protects against myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury by regulating the PTEN/PI3K/AKT signaling pathway.

Jan 30, 2020

Reperfusion strategies in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) can cause a series of additional clinical damage, defined as myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury, and thus there is a need for effe...
