Strategies to accelerate diagnosis and treatment of rare cardiovascular diseases
The current landscape for patients with rare cardiovascular disease has shifted. Using genome sequencing Yale physician-scientists have begun to elucidate the pathophysiology of genetic disorders and develop treatment guidelines and recommendations.
Study illuminates tiny RNA’s role in heart disease, obesity
A tiny RNA molecule plays a big role in the development of two diseases affecting billions of people worldwide: heart disease and obesity. Yale researchers have found that by disrupting this microRNA in key tissues, they can reduce plaque buildup in arteries while avoiding unintended effects.
Yale lab finding may protect the heart during ischemia
Research from three Yale laboratories — in the fields of immunobiology, chemistry, and cardiology — could lead to new drugs to reduce complications during cardiac surgery or heart attacks. If they pan out in human trials, the drugs would limit the detrimental impact of ischemia—restriction of blood flow—thereby cutting the degree of damage to the heart. The research appeared in the June online issue of Circulation.
Reducing Cardiovascular Disease Risk During American Heart Month
February is American Heart Month, an opportunity for all people to focus on their heart health. With education and healthy lifestyle changes, the risk of cardiovascular disease can be reduced. Here are answers to four timely heart health questions.
Why are post-TAVR stroke rates higher at comprehensive stroke centers?
Comprehensive stroke centers are associated with higher in-hospital stroke rates after transcatheter aortic valve replacement, according to a new analysis published in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions.Source: Cardiovascular Business
