Heart Health:Arm is safer access point catheter-based heart procedures ♦ Preventing heart cells from turning to bone ♦ New device protects brain during heart-valve procedure

Arm is safer access point catheter-based heart procedures  Patients with acute coronary syndrome undergoing coronary angiogram, a procedure used to assess blockages in the heart's arteries, had a significantly lower risk of major bleeding and death if their interventional cardiologist accessed the heart through an artery in the arm rather than the groin, according to research.Continue Reading
You are when you eat: Limiting flies to specific eating hours protects their hearts against aging   Limiting flies to specific eating hours protected their hearts against aging, a study has demonstrated. Previous research has found that people who tend to eat later in the day and into the night have a higher chance of developing heart disease than people who cut off their food consumption earlier.

Preventing heart cells from turning to bone  Human cells have been used to discover how blood flow in the heart protects against the hardening of valves in cardiovascular disease. What's more, they've identified a potential way to correct this process when it goes wrong Continue Reading
Prolonged shortened sleep increases blood pressure at night, People exposed to prolonged periods of shortened sleep have significant increases in blood pressure during nighttime hours, researchers report in a small study of eight participants Continue Reading
Test of new device that protects brain during heart-valve procedure  In the first multicenter trial of its kind, researchers tested a new device that lowers the risk of stroke and cognitive decline in patients undergoing heart-valve replacement. One of the major findings is that 55% more patients have completely clean brains -- with no ischemic brain lesions at all,. Brain lesions increase risk of dementia and stroke two- to three-fold.Continue Reading
