BACKGROUND: With limited health care resources, bibliometric studies can help guide researchers and research funding agencies towards areas where reallocation or increase in research activity is warranted. Bibliometric analyses have been published in many specialties and sub-specialties but our literature search did not reveal a bibliometric analysis on Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR). The main objective of the study was to identify the trends of the top 100 cited articles on CMR research...

In 2005, Bob Hauser published a paper in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology entitled "The growing mismatch between patient longevity and the service life of Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillators". Now, nearly a decade later, I would like to perform a second look on the problem of a mismatching between ICD device service life and the survival of ICD recipients. Since 2005, the demographics of the ICD population has changed significantly. Primary prevention has become the dominant indication in defibrillator therapy and device implantation is indicated more and more in earlier stages of cardiac diseases...

EDITORIAL
Scott M Grundy
Recent guidelines for cholesterol management proposed by the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and American Heart Association (AHA) recommended statin therapy for most men in their 60s and most women in their 70s. If these guidelines are followed in the United States, most adults will eventually take statins. A companion article in this journal goes a step further by proposing statin initiation for mostly everyone about 10 years earlier. Treatment in ACC/AHA guidelines does not depend on cholesterol levels, for either statin initiation or treatment goals...

During year 2013, several recommendations for the management of hypertension were published: recommendations of the French and European Societies of Hypertension and two recommendations from the USA, those from the ACC/AHA/CDC groups and those from the JNC 8. The recommendations of the JNC 8 are not, strictly speaking, the recommendations of JNC 8, since they are neither endorsed by their sponsor: the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), nor by any other supervisor. They only commit their authors...

BACKGROUND: The 2013 guidelines of the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association (ACC-AHA) for the treatment of cholesterol expand the indications for statin therapy for the prevention of cardiovascular disease. METHODS: Using data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys of 2005 to 2010, we estimated the number, and summarized the risk-factor profile, of persons for whom statin therapy would be recommended (i.e., eligible persons) under the new ACC-AHA guidelines, as compared with the guidelines of the Third Adult Treatment Panel (ATP III) of the National Cholesterol Education Program, and extrapolated the results to a population of 115...

The involvement of the Purkinje system in a subset of patients with idiopathic ventricular fibrillation or polymorphic VT/VF related to structural heart disease was first demonstrated in the pioneering work of Michel Haissaguerre and co-workers (Circulation 106:962-967, 2002 and Lancet 359:677-678, 2002). It is very important to identify these patients with recurrent episodes of ventricular fibrillation and/or ICD shocks with regard to the presence of triggering premature ventricular contractions (PVC), which may be amenable to mapping and catheter ablation by screening Holter and ICD recordings...

REVIEW
Mark R Thomas, Robert F Storey
The discovery of the antiplatelet effect of low-dose aspirin led to the hugely successful strategy of dual antiplatelet therapy in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Increasing the dose of aspirin beyond 75-100 mg has never been shown to offer additional efficacy in ACS patients but could possibly increase the risk of bleeding. In the Platelet Inhibition and Patients Outcome (PLATO) study, higher doses of aspirin appeared to neutralise the additional benefit of the potent P2Y12 inhibitor ticagrelor compared to clopidogrel (Circulation 124: 544-554, 2011)...

The last twenty years have seen an explosive growth in cardiovascular disease research. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the characteristics of published research in the field of non-invasive cardiovascular imaging research from 1991-2011. Our aims were to determine: (1) the origin of the studies (international or from the U.S.) (2) differences in funding sources for U.S. publications and (3) if there has been an evolving trend pertaining to the mode of imaging. We evaluated characteristics of original research articles from Circulation, Circulation cardiovascular imaging, Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC), Journal of the American College of Cardiology cardiovascular imaging, Journal of the American Medical Association and the New England Journal of Medicine for the years 1991-91, 2001-02 and 2010-11...

A best evidence topic in cardiac surgery was written according to a structured protocol. The question addressed was as follows: is coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery superior to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in terms of in-hospital mortality and morbidity and long-term outcomes in patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI)? A total of 104 papers were returned using the selected search. Of these, six represented the best evidence to answer the clinical question. The selection criteria were comparative studies with only PCI and CABG groups in patients with acute MI...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to determine the extent, type (e.g., staff, equipment), and sources of funding for published cardiovascular research. BACKGROUND: Important cardiovascular research is often performed without direct financial support. The degree to which medical research is conducted on an unfunded basis remains uncertain. METHODS: We sent an electronic survey (Survey Monkey) to 938 corresponding authors who published papers in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology from 2007 through 2009...

BACKGROUND: The transition of scientific knowledge from discovery into practice is less than ideal. A key step in this translation occurs when presentations from major meetings are published in peer-reviewed literature, yet the completeness and speed of this process are not known. We performed a systematic and automated evaluation of rates, timing, and correlates of publication from scientific abstracts presented at 3 major cardiovascular conferences. METHODS AND RESULTS: Using an automated computer algorithm, we searched the ISI Web of Science to identify peer-reviewed publications of abstracts presented at the American Heart Association (AHA), American College of Cardiology (ACC), and European Society of Cardiology (ESC) scientific sessions from 2006 to 2008...

With a renewed focus on quality in US health care, the field of orthopaedic surgery faces both challenges and opportunities to lead the way in providing high-quality musculoskeletal care for patients. Orthopaedics has historically been an eminence-based and tradition-based specialty, and the future will require more evidence in the form of higher-level clinical studies. The orthopaedic oncology literature in 1 leading journal is analyzed between 2005 and 2011 to highlight the published levels of evidence. Models of quality initiatives from leading medical specialty organizations such as the American College of Cardiology are provided...

In a recent manuscript in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, the newly introduced "functional SYNTAX score" (FSS) was found to be a better tool to assess the extent and severity of coronary artery disease than the SYNTAX score (SS) and has reclassified 1/3 of the studied cohort into lower-risk categories. Besides being more invasive, costly, and time consuming, FSS still suffers from inherent deficiencies of its own. Like SS, FSS does not incorporate clinical risk predictors and consequently is a suboptimal tool for predicting PCI risk...
