BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular risk stratification and perioperative management of subjects undergoing non-cardiac surgery have recently been updated in the 2014 European Society of Cardiology guidelines. Nevertheless, and notwithstanding the epidemiological relevance of this condition, an underevaluation of the importance of perioperative risk stratification is a common feeling. METHODS: The ANMCO Cardiovascular Prevention Area organized, last year, a web-based survey with 15 questions to investigate perioperative management and care pathways in non-cardiac surgery and to evaluate guideline adherence of Italian cardiologists...

Hypertension is a leading risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease. In 2017, the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association published a new guideline for the prevention, detection, evaluation, and management of hypertension. The guideline adjusts the clinical parameters for diagnosis and management of hypertension. In this article we summarize the updates and provide some background on these changes as they relate to nursing practice implications, with specific implications for women's health...

BACKGROUND: Many interventional procedures are performed under moderate procedural sedation (MPS). It is important to understand the nature of and factors contributing to adverse events (AEs). Little data exist examining reportable AEs during MPS across specialties. A study was conducted to investigate adverse events during MPS and to compare associated patient and provider characteristics. METHODS: In a retrospective review, 83 MPS cases in which safety incidents were reported (out of approximately 20,000 annual cases during a 12-year period at a tertiary medical center) were analyzed...

There is a need to standardise, within a coordinated Swiss framework, the practical aspects of genetic testing and genetic counselling on possibly inherited cardiovascular disorders in relatives of a sudden cardiac death (SCD) victim. Because of the major advances in genetic investigation techniques and recent publication of international guidelines in the field of cardiology, genetics and pathology, we consider it important to summarise the current evidence and propose an optimal approach to post-mortem genetic investigation for SCD victims and their families in Switzerland...

The obstetrician/gynecologist frequently serves as the primary care physician for women. Specialty-specific guidelines vary in screening recommendations for lipid disorders; women's health practitioners often follow recommendations to screen at age 45 in the absence of other risk factors. However, 2013 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association cholesterol guidelines recommend screening at age 21 to capture those at risk of cardiovascular disease and allow for early intervention with lifestyle and, in the most severe cases, evidence-based statins...

Glaucylara Reis Geovanini, Peter Libby
The concept that inflammation participates pivotally in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and its complications has gained considerable attention, but has not yet entered clinical practice. Experimental work has elucidated molecular and cellular pathways of inflammation that promote atherosclerosis. The recognition of atherogenesis as an active process rather than a cholesterol storage disease or a repository of calcium has highlighted some key inflammatory mechanisms. For example, mononuclear phagocytes contribute to all stages of this disease, illustrating the link between inflammation and atherosclerosis...

Disturbed metabolism as a consequence of obesity and diabetes may cause cardiac diseases (recently highlighted in the cardiovascular research spotlight issue on metabolic cardiomyopathies).1 In turn, the metabolism of the heart may also be disturbed in genetic and acquired forms of hypertrophic cardiac disease. Herein, we provide an overview of recent insights on metabolic changes in genetic hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and discuss several therapies, which may be explored to target disturbed metabolism and prevent onset of cardiac hypertrophy...

BACKGROUND: On May 20, 2016, US professional organizations in cardiology published joint treatment guidelines recommending the use of angiotensin-receptor neprilysin inhibitor (ARNI) for eligible patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). Using data from the Get With The Guidelines-Heart Failure registry, we evaluated the early impact of this update on temporal trends in ARNI prescription. METHODS: We analyzed patients with HFrEF who were eligible for ARNI prescription (EF ≤40%, no contraindications) and hospitalized from February 20, 2016, through August 19, 2016-allowing for 13weeks before and after guideline publication...

Heart failure is one of the leading diseases in internal medicine worldwide. Because of the increase in population aging, the incidence and prevalence of heart insufficiency is rising annually and is now the most frequent individual diagnosis among hospitalized patients in Germany. The mortality rate has recently been reduced, since new pharmacological options, especially the inhibition of neprilysin, have been developed; however, heart failure is still associated with a high mortality and morbidity rate. Thus, guideline-conform treatment is of crucial importance...

Hypertension affects at least 1 in 3 American adults and is a major contributor to premature mortality. Current guidelines recommend screening all adults for hypertension. Ambulatory blood pressure (BP) monitoring should be used to confirm the diagnosis of hypertension for most adults before starting antihypertensive drugs. Ambulatory BP monitoring is the preferred method but home BP monitoring is an acceptable alternative. Management of hypertension substantially reduces the risk of heart failure, stroke, and myocardial infarction...

Clinical management of patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is an emergency situation. Primary aim is urgent reestablishment of reperfusion by means of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The European society of cardiology recently published the latest version of the guideline for management of patients with STEMI. A clear recommendation now exists for radial approach as access side for PCI as well as an intervention including the implantation of a drug eluting stent (DES). In patients with STEMI and multi vessel disease a complete revascularization should be planned on an individual basis either as part of the index procedure or as staged procedure...

This article updates the Heart Failure Association of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) 2007 classification of advanced heart failure and describes new diagnostic and treatment options for these patients. Recognizing the patient with advanced heart failure is critical to facilitate timely referral to advanced heart failure centres. Unplanned visits for heart failure decompensation, malignant arrhythmias, co-morbidities, and the 2016 ESC guidelines criteria for the diagnosis of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction are included in this updated definition...

In the latest update of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines for the management of infective endocarditis (IE), imaging is positioned at the centre of the diagnostic work-up so that an early and accurate diagnosis can be reached. Besides echocardiography, contrast-enhanced CT (ce-CT), radiolabelled leucocyte (white blood cell, WBC) SPECT/CT and [18 F]FDG PET/CT are included as diagnostic tools in the diagnostic flow chart for IE. Following the clinical guidelines that provided a straightforward message on the role of multimodality imaging, we believe that it is highly relevant to produce specific recommendations on nuclear multimodality imaging in IE and cardiac implantable electronic device infections...
