Cardiologists successfully use virtual reality device to treat chronically blocked right coronary artery

Cardiologists successfully use virtual reality device to treat chronically blocked right coronary artery

Virtual reality (VR) has potential to revolutionize some aspects of medicine and healthcare. Several medical specialties are already using it to train physicians and assist diagnosis and it also has potential for treatment. A group of cardiologists has now successfully used a VR device to guide the opening up (revascularization) of a chronically blocked right coronary artery. [More]

Liposomal sizing and the Coulter principle: an interview with Professor Melvin E. Klegerman

For about the last 25 years, the cardiology group here have been developing a platform technology for both the diagnosis and treatment of atherosclerosis. The group began at Northwestern University, Chicago, under the direction of Dr. David McPherson and he continues to lead the group. [More]
Noninvasive CT scans far better than stress tests at spotting clogged arteries

Noninvasive CT scans far better than stress tests at spotting clogged arteries

Results of a head-to-head comparison study led by Johns Hopkins researchers show that noninvasive CT scans of the heart's vessels are far better at spotting clogged arteries that can trigger a heart attack than the commonly prescribed exercise stress that most patients with chest pain undergo.

New approach helps create virtual models for treating abdominal aortic aneurysms

New approach helps create virtual models for treating abdominal aortic aneurysms

Virtual models can be created in the angiography room thanks to an approach developed by researchers at the University of Montreal Hospital Research Centre and the university's departments of radiology, radiation oncology, and nuclear medicine. The latest advances were presented by Dr. Gilles Soulez at the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Society of Europe conference on September 27, 2015. [More]
Anti-coagulant medications quickly resolve blood clots that could impair valve motion

Anti-coagulant medications quickly resolve blood clots that could impair valve motion

Heart valve replacements made from tissue (bioprosthetic valves) have long been thought to be spared the complication of blood clot formation. Researchers have now found that about 15 percent of all bioprosthetic aortic heart valve patients develop blood clots on the leaflets affecting valve opening, regardless of whether the patient received the new valve via open-heart surgery or a minimally-invasive catheter procedure, a new study from the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute shows.

Novel radiopharmaceutical probe has potential to save lives of patients with ischemic stroke

Novel radiopharmaceutical probe has potential to save lives of patients with ischemic stroke

A novel radiopharmaceutical probe developed at Massachusetts General Hospital has the potential of providing physicians with information that could save the lives of patients with ischemic stroke or pulmonary embolism - conditions caused when important blood vessels are blocked by a clot that has traveled from another part of the body.

MRA therapy does not improve outcome in heart attack patients without heart failure

MRA therapy does not improve outcome in heart attack patients without heart failure

Heart attack patients without heart failure derive no benefit from the addition of mineralocortoid receptor antagonists (MRA), to standard therapy, results of the ALBATROSS study show. [More]
Radial approach superior than femoral one for coronary angiography and PCI for ACS patients

Radial approach superior than femoral one for coronary angiography and PCI for ACS patients

For the first time, ESC Guidelines published today give the highest degree of recommendation for the radial approach over the femoral one for coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). [More]
Non-invasive diagnostic imaging can rule out CAD in about 50% of women with atypical chest pain

Non-invasive diagnostic imaging can rule out CAD in about 50% of women with atypical chest pain

Non-invasive diagnostic imaging can rule out coronary artery disease (CAD) in about 50% of women with atypical chest pain who are at relatively low risk for CAD, while exposing them to only a modest dose of radiation. [More]
Stopping cocaine use may lower levels of ET-1 protein that plays key role in coronary artery disease

Stopping cocaine use may lower levels of ET-1 protein that plays key role in coronary artery disease

For people who use cocaine, stopping or reducing cocaine use is associated with decreased levels of endothelin-1 (ET-1)--a protein that plays a key role in the development of coronary artery disease, reports a study in the Journal of Addiction Medicine, the official journal of the American Society of Addiction Medicine.
