    Malnutrition resulting from inadequate calorie intake after surgery is associated with high morbidity and mortality, as well as delayed recovery, increased hospital stay, early readmission, decreased quality of life and increased health care costs. Patients who are at risk for malnutrition when undergoing heart surgery now can be more quickly and easily identified, leading to intervention and potentially better surgical outcomes, according to a study published online in IThe Annals of Thoracic Surgery/I....

    A new non-invasive approach called pulsed cavitation ultrasound can improve the outcome of patients with severe bioprosthesis stenosis. Pulsed cavitation ultrasound can soften human degenerative calcified bioprosthetic valves and significantly improve the valve opening function, finds a study. Artificial bioprosthetic tissue heart valves that are implanted in patients have limited durability, with progressive deterioration of the bioprosthesis after 12-15 years, secondary to the build-up of ...

    Normally, the systolic pressure is assumed to be equal in the lung arteries and the part of the heart pumping to them. A difference in pressure between the right ventricle (RV) and pulmonary artery (PA) suggests an obstruction to blood flow (specifically in the right ventricular outflow tract, or RVOT), which is most often seen in patients who have congenital heart defects or sometimes after cardiac surgery or lung transplantation. RV-PA pressure difference may not always be a reflection of ...

    India is presently witnessing nearly two million heart attacks annually. A heart attack happens when the flow of oxygen-rich blood to a section of heart muscle suddenly becomes blocked and the heart can't get oxygen. If blood flow isn't restored quickly, the section of heart muscle begins to die. Heart attacks most often occur as a result of coronary heart disease (CHD), also called coronary artery disease. CHD is a condition in which a waxy substance called plaque builds up inside the coronary arteries....

    A false heart attack diagnosis can occur when breast implants impede an electrocardiogram(ECG)according to research presented today at EHRA EUROPACE - CARDIOSTIM 2017.1 "Our experience shows that breast implants make it difficult to see the heart with echocardiography because ultrasound cannot penetrate through the implant," said lead author Dr Sok-Sithikun Bun, a cardiologist at Princess Grace Hospital, Monaco. "We wanted to find out if implants also disrupt an ECG." An ECG records the ...
