Hot Topics: Serum uric acid is associated with mortality and heart failure hospitalizations in patients with complicated myocardial infarction

Elevated serum uric acid levels are associated with poor outcomes in patients after myocardial infarction complicated by reduced left ventricular function, heart failure, or both, and quantification of serum uric acid could improve risk stratification of patients with complicated myocardial infarction.

Journal of Cardiac Failure cover

Hot Topics: Epicardial adipose tissue may be a source of increased circulatory levels of fatty acids and inflammatory and metabolic mediators in systolic heart failure

Higher expression of fatty acids and mRNAs encoding different inflammatory and metabolic mediators was found in epicardial adipose tissue from patients with systolic heart failure, and palmitoleic acid levels were correlated with parameters of cardiac remodeling.

Cardiovascular Interventions. cover

Hot Topics: Initial ECG findings are not reliable in detecting patients with an indication for immediate coronary angiography after cardiac arrest

An analysis of 210 resuscitated patients admitted after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest demonstrated that even in the absence of ECG changes indicating myocardial ischemia, an acute culprit lesion may be present and patients may benefit from emergent revascularization

The PRADA-study

AHA 2015 News:
Late–breaking Ahus study, the PRADA-study, highlighted by JACC editor Valentin Fuster

The primary results of the PRADA study conducted at Akershus University Hospital were presented at the Late-Breaking Clinical Trials at AHA Scientific Sessions in Orlando November 2015. In women treated for early breast cancer the angiotensin receptor blocker candesartan protected against a decline in LVEF, while the beta-blocker metoprolol did not. This placebo-controlled, 2x2 factorial, double blind study is so far the largest randomized clinical trial aimed at preventing anthracycline- and trastuzumab-induced cardiotoxicity in breast cancer patients. The discussant of the trial, cardio-oncology expert Bonnie Ky, said that the study was: “well executed using gold standard methods in clinical trials and the gold standard for assessment of LVEF, cardiac MRI”.
