Clinical trial enrolment favours men, according to a study presented today at Heart Failure 2018 and the World Congress on Acute Heart Failure, a European Society of Cardiology congress.1 The study found that fewer women meet eligibility criteria for trials of heart failure medication.
Playing video games that involve physical exertion (known as exergaming) improves quality of life in patients with heart failure, according to late breaking results from the HF-Wii study presented today at Heart Failure 2018 and the World Congress on Acute Heart Failure, a European Society of Cardiology congress.
Heart failure patients who consume more protein live longer, according to research presented today at Heart Failure 2018 and the World Congress on Acute Heart Failure, a European Society of Cardiology congress.
Girls who survive cancer have a higher risk of developing a deadly heart disease when pregnant later in life, according to a study presented today at Heart Failure 2018 and the World Congress on Acute Heart Failure, a European Society of Cardiology congress.
Triggers of acute heart failure vary globally, according to late breaking results from the REPORT-HF registry presented today at Heart Failure 2018 and the World Congress on Acute Heart Failure, a European Society of Cardiology congress.
John L. Hennessy and David A. Patterson, who received the 2017 ACM A.M. Turing Award from ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery for pioneering a systematic, quantitative approach to the design and evaluation of computer architectures, will jointly present the Turing Award Lecture on June 4 at the International Symposium of Computer Architecture (ISCA). The Turing Award lecture is open to the public and will be livestreamed.
Heart doctors from the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Council on Stroke are calling on national health authorities for permission to provide stroke patients with mechanical thrombectomy, a life-saving treatment for acute ischaemic stroke, in regions where there is a lack of trained specialists. Details of the proposal are presented today at EuroPCR 2018.
Insilico Medicine presents at the AI & Blockchain Applications in Pharma R&D Executive Workshop, May 30-31, 2018, organized by NextLevel Pharma.
EuroPCR 2018, the annual Course of the European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI), a branch of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), will take place in the Palais des Congrès in Paris, France, from 22 to 25 May.
Chronic coronary syndromes (CCS), have a major societal impact, affecting our patients' quality of life (QoL). Recent trials, many presented during EuroPCR 2018, re-address the role of PCI in CCS, demonstrating that PCI with latest-generation DES are an effective strategy for the treatment of CCS in terms of symptom relief and hard outcomes. New data points to the usefulness of physiological guidance for stenting, and as important asset in planning the intervention and predicting outcomes.
A report on interventional cardiology practice from an extensive survey is presented today at EuroPCR 2018, the annual meeting of the European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI), a branch of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).
Results from the innovative SYNTAX III Revolution trial underline the effectiveness of evolving non-invasive algorithms for Heart Team decision making using state-of-the-art imaging. A distinctive clinical trial in that it randomised the doctors -- in this case, the Heart Team -- rather than the patient, the goal was to better understand the present and future role that non-invasive assessments could play in deciding and planning revascularisation strategies.
Results from the physiology-stratified analysis of ORBITA presented at EuroPCR 2018 and simultaneously published in Circulation demonstrate that PCI improves ischaemia as assessed by dobutamine stress echocardiography, renders more patients free of angina than does placebo and that FFR and iFR do predict the strength of the PCI effect on ischaemia, but this is only clearly seen on blinded stress echo evaluation. It is not visible in the symptom scores or exercise times.
Results from the first patient-level pooled analysis of all existing trials comparing FFR-guided PCI with contemporary stents versus medical therapy demonstrates improved hard outcomes. In patients with stable coronary lesions, contemporary PCI -- i.e., guided by FFR -- reduces the risk of future myocardial infarction or cardiac death independently of its impact on symptoms.
When a 50-year-old mother or father returns home after a heart attack, will the whole family adopt a better diet? Is it really necessary? This is an issue facing millions of families each year and one of the many to be addressed next month at EuroHeartCare 2018, the annual congress of the Council on Cardiovascular Nursing and Allied Professions (CCNAP) of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).
Sleep clinicians and scientists from around the world will present new research and discuss the most recent developments in clinical sleep medicine and circadian science at SLEEP 2018, the 32nd annual meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies LLC (APSS), June 3-6, 2018, at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Md.
Journalists and bloggers are invited to join top scientists and practitioners as they discuss the latest nutrition research findings during Nutrition 2018, the inaugural flagship meeting of the American Society for Nutrition. The meeting will be held June 9-12, 2018 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston.
