Quick Take: Ultra-processed food intake and risk of cardiovascular disease

The consumption of ultra-processed food has increased substantially over the last several decades. These foods often have higher proportions of total and saturated fat,...

Quick Take: Estimates of all cause mortality and cause specific mortality associated with proton...

Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are widely used in the management of gastroesophageal reflux. However, several studies have demonstrated serious adverse events associated with PPI...

The VADT-F trial: major cardiovascular events or death are not reduced in diabetics with...

1. In a 15-year observational cohort study of type 2 diabetics treated with intensive compared to standard glucose control therapy the risk of major...

Neladenoson does not increase exercise capacity for heart failure with preserved ejection fraction

1. In this randomized controlled trial, heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) patients did not have improved exercise capacity with neladenoson versus placebo.2....

Unrecognized myocardial infarctions associated with embolic cerebral infarctions of undetermined source

Quick Take: Effects of antiplatelet therapy after stroke due to intracerebral haemorrhage (RESTART)

Patients with a history of occlusive vascular disease who are on antithrombotic therapy are at an increased risk of intracerebral hemorrhage. Generally, antithrombotic therapy...

Ambulatory rhythm monitoring detects heart block after transcatheter aortic valve replacement

1. The routine use of ambulatory event monitoring (AEM) commonly detects high grade atrioventricular block (H-AVB) after discharge following Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR).2....

Increased number of daily steps linked with decreased mortality in older women

1. In this large, prospective cohort study limited to women, increasing daily step count was linked with decreased mortality.2. The above effect plateaued at...

The SPICE III trial: dexmedetomidine is rarely effective as a sole agent for sedation...

1. Patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) randomized to continue sedation for ventilation with dexmedetomidine often required use of supplementary propofol, midazolam, or...

The WRAP-IT trial: antibiotic-eluting envelope covering implanted cardiac devices lowers incidence of major injections
