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.

Redefining Hypertension ? Assessing the New Blood-Pressure Guidelines
31/12/69 - Like physical guidelines designed to ensure that hikers stay on the safest path through tricky terrain, expert medical guidelines aim to steer clinicians toward best practices. The new Guideline for the Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Management of High Blood Pressure in Adults issued by the…

Swallowing a Spy ? The Potential Uses of Digital Adherence Monitoring
31/12/69 - I recently cared for a middle-aged woman, Ms. G. who presented with an acute coronary syndrome. Some years ago, she?d had a cardiac arrest and was found to have extensive coronary artery disease, for which she underwent urgent multivessel coronary-artery bypass surgery. Though we often assume that…

Safety of Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Patients with Cardiac Devices
31/12/69 - A majority of patients who undergo implantation of a pacemaker or implantable cardioverter?defibrillator (ICD) subsequently have a clinical indication for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Small studies have reported on the safety of MRI in patients who have a pacemaker or ICD; a recent larger…

PCI Strategies in Patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction and Cardiogenic Shock
31/12/69 - The mortality associated with cardiogenic shock in acute myocardial infarction can be reduced with the use of early revascularization, predominantly percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), to restore blood flow to the culprit coronary artery. Up to 80% of patients who have cardiogenic shock…

Case 39-2017: A 41-Year-Old Woman with Recurrent Chest Pain
31/12/69 - Presentation of Case. Dr. Mahesh K. Vidula (Medicine): A 41-year-old woman presented to this hospital with chest pain. Approximately 1 year before presentation, the patient had had transient tightness in the chest and shoulder on the left side that had prompted a referral to outpatient physical…

Back to the Future in Cardiogenic Shock ? Initial PCI of the Culprit Lesion Only
31/12/69 - Approximately 5 to 10% of cases of acute myocardial infarction are complicated by cardiogenic shock, which is associated with early mortality of 40 to 50%. Nearly two decades ago, the SHOCK (Should We Emergently Revascularize Occluded Coronaries for Cardiogenic Shock) trial established that…

Noninvasive Cardiac Radiation for Ablation of Ventricular Tachycardia
31/12/69 - In clinical electrophysiology, noninvasive cardiac imaging methods, such as cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT), help to identify and localize myocardial scar that may have an abnormal electrical substrate causing ventricular tachycardia. The use of multielectrode…

Noninvasive Ablation of Ventricular Tachycardia
31/12/69 - Scar-related ventricular tachycardia (VT) is an important cause of sudden death and morbidity in patients with heart disease. Myocardial infarction, or replacement fibrosis in nonischemic cardiomyopathies, is a common source of scarring. Myocardial bundles that course through or around the fibrotic…

Edoxaban for the Treatment of Cancer-Associated Venous Thromboembolism
31/12/69 - Venous thromboembolism is a common complication of cancer and its therapy. Treatment of cancer-associated venous thromboembolism is challenging, and the risks of recurrent thrombosis and bleeding are higher among patients with cancer than among those without cancer. These two complications are…
