Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a nonatherosclerotic cause of myocardial infarction in young and middle-aged women that has gained increasing awareness in recent years. Its diagnosis presents a challenge. Invasive coronary angiography is the primary imaging modality for diagnosing SCAD; however, it carries risk in these patients, who have an increased predisposition to complications. Read More

Background: Little is known about sex differences in elderly patients after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) with return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) and subsequent target temperature management (TTM). Therefore, this study was designed to evaluate sex-specific differences in survival and neurological outcome in elderly patients at 28-day and 180-day follow-up.Methods: A total of 468 nontraumatic OHCA survivors with preclinical ROSC and an age of ≥ 65 years were included in this study.

Aims: Abnormal intracellular calcium handling contributes to the progressive nature of atrial fibrillation (AF), the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia. Evidence in mouse models suggests that activation of the nuclear factor of activated T-cell (NFAT) signaling pathway contributes to atrial remodeling. Our aim was to determine the role of NFATc2 in AF in humans and mouse models. Read More
