Valve replacement heart surgery should be performed earlier than conventionally thought for people with aortic stenosis – according to new research from the University of East Anglia.
A study led by researchers at the National Institute for Health and Care Research Leicester Biomedical Research Centre has shown that a less invasive heart procedure for a common condition is just as effective as conventional open-heart surgery.
Medical interventions, such as improving diet, lowering blood lipids, or controlling blood pressure and blood sugar, can only do so much when it comes to treating atherosclerotic disease.
Aspirin therapy, as opposed to statin use, for non-obstructive coronary artery disease does not reduce major cardiovascular events, according to a new study published in the journal Radiology: Cardiothoracic Imaging.

While there are effective therapies to reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or "bad" cholesterol, and other lipids, to date there are no approved treatments to lower lipoprotein(a), a lesser-known driver of heart disease risk.
Findings from a new Cleveland Clinic-led phase 1 trial show that an experimental "gene silencing" therapy reduced blood levels of lipoprotein(a), a key driver of heart disease risk, by up to 98%.
According to ARRS' American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR), the 3-T Dixon gradient-recalled echo (GRE) sequence performed higher than the current standard of 1.5-T SSFP for unenhanced coronary MRA, which could help expand clinical adoption of the procedure.
