Clinical Impact of the Polypill for Cardiovascular Prevention in Latin America: A Consensus Statement of the Inter-American Society of Cardiology.

Glob Heart 2018 Nov 27. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

Centre for Global Chronic Conditions, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, United Kingdom.

The burden of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) is increasing, particularly in low-middle-income countries such as most of Latin America. This region presents specific socioeconomic characteristics, generating a high incidence of CVD despite efforts to control the problem. A consensus statement has been developed by Inter-American Society of Cardiology with the aim of answering some important questions related to CVD in this region and the role of the polypill in cardiovascular (CV) prevention as an intervention to address these issues.

Advancing the Science of Healthcare Service Delivery: The NHLBI Corporate Healthcare Leaders' Panel.

Glob Heart 2018 12 6;13(4):339-345. Epub 2018 Oct 6.

Tristar Health Partners, Nashville, TN, USA.

There is a growing gap between available science and evidence and the ability of service providers to deliver high-quality care in a cost-effective way to the entire population. We believe that the chasm between knowledge and action is due to a lack of concerted effort among all organizations that deliver health care services across the life span of patients. Broad participation is needed and necessitates a far more explicit and concerted public-private partnership focused on large-scale transformation. Read More

Global Unmet Needs in Cardiac Surgery.

Glob Heart 2018 12 20;13(4):293-303. Epub 2018 Sep 20.

Wake Forest School of Medicine, Winston Salem, NC, USA.

More than 6 billion people live outside industrialized countries and have insufficient access to cardiac surgery. Given the recently confirmed high prevailing mortality for rheumatic heart disease in many of these countries together with increasing numbers of patients needing interventions for lifestyle diseases due to an accelerating epidemiological transition, a significant need for cardiac surgery could be assumed. Yet, need estimates were largely based on extrapolated screening studies while true service levels remained unknown. Read More

Noncommunicable Diseases in Low- and Middle-Income Countries: A Strategic Approach to Develop a Global Implementation Research Workforce.

Glob Heart 2018 06 30;13(2):131-137. Epub 2018 Jun 30.

Center for Translation Research and Implementation Science, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA.

Globally, most of the burden from noncommunicable disease is now evident in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). At the same time, many effective noncommunicable disease interventions are now available and recommended for implementation and scale-up across LMIC health systems-yet are not being widely implemented. Understanding optimal and sustainable implementation strategies for these interventions within the LMIC context will need locally led and conducted implementation research- a research capacity which currently is lacking.

Leptin, An Adipokine With Central Importance in the Global Obesity Problem.

Glob Heart 2018 06 13;13(2):113-127. Epub 2017 Dec 13.

Department of Nutritional Sciences and Diabetes Research Center, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL, USA; Geriatric Research Education and Clinical Center, Birmingham Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Birmingham, AL, USA.
