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
