Estimated age based on exercise stress testing performance outperforms chronological age in predicting mortality.

Eur J Prev Cardiol 2019 Feb 13:2047487319826400. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Heart and Vascular Institute, Cleveland Clinic, USA.

Aims: We sought to estimate patients' age based on their stress testing exercise performance (A-BEST), and evaluate whether A-BEST would be a better predictor of mortality when compared to chronological age.

Methods: We included 126,356 consecutive patients referred for exercise (electrocardiography, echocardiography or myocardial perfusion imaging) stress testing at our institution from January 1st, 1991 to February 27th, 2015. Estimated age was computed based on exercise capacity (number of peak estimated metabolic equivalents of task), chronotropic reserve index and heart rate recovery, taking into account patient's gender and medications that affect heart rate.

Isocapnic buffering period: From physiology to clinics.

Eur J Prev Cardiol 2019 Feb 12:2047487319829950. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

4 Centro Cardiologico Monzino, IRCCS, Milano, Italy.

Background: During cardiopulmonary exercise test, the isocapnic buffering period ranges between anaerobic threshold (AT) and respiratory compensation point (RCP). We investigated whether oxygen uptake (VO) increase during the isocapnic buffering period (ΔVOAT-RCP) is related to heart failure severity and prognosis.

Methods: We retrospectively analysed reduced ejection fraction heart failure patients who attained RCP at cardiopulmonary exercise test. Read More

Genetic testing for familial hypercholesterolemia: Impact on diagnosis, treatment and cardiovascular risk.

Eur J Prev Cardiol 2019 Feb 12:2047487319829746. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

1 Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre, Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal, Canada.

Aims: Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is the most common genetic disorder in medicine, with a prevalence of 1/250. Affected individuals have elevated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and an increased lifetime risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). The diagnosis of FH is based on algorithms that include LDL-C levels, physical manifestations, family history of high LDL-C and premature ASCVD, and, more recently, genetic testing. Read More

Predictors of response to exercise training in patients with coronary artery disease - a subanalysis of the SAINTEX-CAD study.

Eur J Prev Cardiol 2019 Feb 12:2047487319828478. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

1 Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Cardiology, Research group Cardiovascular Diseases, GENCOR, University of Antwerp, Belgium.

Exercise training improves peak oxygen uptake, an important predictor of mortality in coronary artery disease patients. The influence of clinical and disease characteristics on training response is not well established in coronary artery disease. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate whether baseline cardiovascular disease variables and training intensity can predict the maximal aerobic response to exercise training. Read More

Risk factors for atrial fibrillation in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Eur J Prev Cardiol 2019 Feb 6:2047487319828474. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

2 The Heart Institute, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

Atrial fibrillation is the most common sustained arrhythmia in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), occurring in approximately 25% of patients, which is four to six times more common than in similarly aged patients of the general population. Atrial fibrillation is poorly tolerated by HCM patients, largely due to their dependence on atrial systole for left ventricular filling. HCM patients who develop atrial fibrillation have an increased rate of heart failure related mortality and disabling or fatal thromboembolic events, as well as functional deterioration due to progressive heart failure when left untreated.

Eur J Prev Cardiol 2019 Jan 29:2047487319826312. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

1 Division of Cardiology, Policlinico Casilino, Italy.

Background: The early diagnosis of cardiac abnormalities in young athletes may be helpful not only to identify subjects potentially at risk of sudden cardiac death but also to prevent stress-related cardiac dysfunction and cardiovascular events during the life of these subjects. The aim of our study was to investigate the prevalence of cardiac abnormalities in a population of young male soccer players undergoing pre-participation screening through electrocardiogram and trans-thoracic echocardiography.

Methods: All consecutive male football players undergoing pre-participation screening comprehensive of medical history, physical examination, 12-lead electrocardiogram and trans-thoracic echocardiography at the FMSI Sport Medicine Institute in Rome between January 2008-March 2009 were enrolled in the study.

1 Hypertension in Africa Research Team (HART), North-West University, South Africa.

Background: Globally hypertension is stabilising, but in sub-Saharan Africa the incidence of hypertension remains on an increase. Although this might be attributed to poor healthcare and ineffective antihypertensive treatment, there is a limited understanding of population and individual-specific cardiovascular pathophysiology - necessary for effective prevention and treatment strategies in Africa. As there is a lack of longitudinal studies tracking the early pathophysiological development of hypertension in black populations, the African-PREDICT study was initiated. Read More

Exercise training for patients with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease: What to pursue and how to do it. A Position Paper of the European Association of Preventive Cardiology (EAPC).

Eur J Prev Cardiol 2019 Jan 14:2047487318820420. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

17 University Cardiology Department and Heart Failure Unit and Cardiopulmonary Laboratory, Cardiology, I.R.C.C.S., Milan, Italy.

Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus suffer from dysregulation of a plethora of cardiovascular and metabolic functions, including dysglycaemia, dyslipidaemia, arterial hypertension, obesity and a reduced cardiorespiratory fitness. Exercise training has the potential to improve many of these functions, such as insulin sensitivity, lipid profile, vascular reactivity and cardiorespiratory fitness, particularly in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients with cardiovascular comorbidities, such as patients that suffered from an acute myocardial infarction, or after a coronary intervention such as percutaneous coronary intervention or coronary artery bypass grafting. The present position paper aims to provide recommendations for prescription of exercise training in patients with both type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. Read More

Eur J Prev Cardiol 2019 Jan 6:2047487318821250. Epub 2019 Jan 6.

6 Department of Public Health Solutions, National Institute for Health and Welfare, Finland.

Testosterone, sex hormone-binding globulin and risk of cardiovascular events: A report from the Outcome Reduction with an Initial Glargine Intervention trial.

Eur J Prev Cardiol 2018 Dec 19:2047487318819142. Epub 2018 Dec 19.
