The New England Journal of Medicine: Search Results in Cardiology
The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) RSS feed -- Search Results in Cardiology. NEJM ( is a weekly general medical journal that publishes new medical research findings, review articles, and editorial opinion on a wide variety of topics of importance to biomedical science and clinical practice.

Imaging Coronary Anatomy and Reducing Myocardial Infarction
31/12/69 - In 1998, the Journal published one of the early studies evaluating the sensitivity and specificity of coronary computed tomographic angiography (CTA), as compared with invasive coronary angiography, for the detection of obstructive coronary artery disease. Subsequent studies have established that…

Coronary CT Angiography and 5-Year Risk of Myocardial Infarction
31/12/69 - Patients with stable chest pain suggestive of coronary heart disease can be evaluated with a variety of noninvasive stress tests that incorporate electrocardiography, radionuclide scintigraphy, echocardiography, or magnetic resonance imaging. Over the past 50 years or more, these techniques have…

Circulating Extracellular Vesicles in Human Disease
31/12/69 - It is well known that cells release fluid-filled sacs (vesicles) to the extracellular environment during cell death, or apoptosis, but it has been increasingly recognized that healthy cells may also release vesicles in the process of normal functions. Vesicles that are released by healthy cells…

Partial Oral versus Intravenous Antibiotic Treatment of Endocarditis
31/12/69 - Patients with infective endocarditis on the left side of the heart are typically treated with intravenously administered antibiotic agents for up to 6 weeks, according to guidelines from the European Society of Cardiology and the American Heart Association. During the initial phase after admission,…

Stabilizing Transthyretin to Treat ATTR Cardiomyopathy
31/12/69 - Transthyretin amyloid cardiomyopathy is caused by intramyocardial deposition of transthyretin-derived amyloid fibrils, which leads to progressive ventricular wall thickening and stiffness of the heart. Once diagnosed, it is associated with a life expectancy of only 2 to 6 years. Transthyretin…

Percutaneous Repair or Medical Treatment for Secondary Mitral Regurgitation
31/12/69 - In patients with secondary mitral regurgitation, previously referred to as functional mitral regurgitation, the mitral-valve leaflets and chordae are structurally normal, and mitral regurgitation results from alterations in left ventricular geometry and function. Severe secondary mitral…

Tafamidis Treatment for Patients with Transthyretin Amyloid Cardiomyopathy
31/12/69 - Transthyretin amyloid cardiomyopathy is a life-threatening disease characterized by the accumulation of amyloid fibrils composed of misfolded transthyretin protein in the heart. Misfolded monomers or oligomers of transthyretin are deposited in the myocardium, leading to cardiomyopathy and symptoms…

Rivaroxaban in Patients with Heart Failure, Sinus Rhythm, and Coronary Disease
31/12/69 - After an episode of worsening chronic heart failure, rates of readmission to the hospital and of death are high, especially in the first few months. Activation of thrombin-related pathways may contribute to disease progression by inducing inflammation, endothelial dysfunction, and arterial and…

Six-Month Outcomes after Restrictive or Liberal Transfusion for Cardiac Surgery
31/12/69 - Restrictive strategies for red-cell transfusion (in which lower hemoglobin concentrations are used for transfusion) in patients undergoing cardiac surgery have been shown to result in the use of fewer units of allogeneic red cells than liberal strategies (in which higher hemoglobin concentrations…

Rivaroxaban for Thromboprophylaxis after Hospitalization for Medical Illness
31/12/69 - Patients who are hospitalized for acute medical illnesses, such as heart failure, respiratory insufficiency, stroke, and infectious or inflammatory diseases, are at increased risk for venous thromboembolism. Validated risk scores that include additional factors, such as a lack of mobility, advanced…
