Global 3D Cardiac Mapping System Market
Cardiac mapping is a technique in which the information from cardiac electrograms is gathered and displayed. Cardiac mapping is used to diagnose the heart rhythms especially in case of arrhythmia. The new 3D cardiacmapping systems create the three dimensional model of any chamber of heart and can track exact location of the catheter. This allows movement of the catheters without using X-ray.

The 3D cardiac mapping system market is anticipated to grow with a significant CAGR owing to the increase in number of patients with arrhythmia and other cardiac disorders, rising pressure to reduce diagnosis errors and increasing healthcare expenditure. The major factors driving the growth of 3D cardiac mapping systems is the precision and patient safety enabled by real-time monitoring.
North America contributes maximum share to the 3D cardiac mapping system market. European countries are expected to represent significant growth rates due to the growing healthcare practices. Amongst the Asian countries, India and China are more promising due to large population pool, increased prevalence of cardiac diseases, increasing awareness, rapid improvement in healthcare services with the saturation in the developed markets.

Stopping #DAPT After One Month Improved Outcomes in #Stent Patients:

Continued  treatment with  antiplatelet  medications but not  aspirin reduced  risk of  bleeding 

Patients who stopped taking aspirin one month after receiving a stent in the heart’s arteries but continued taking the P2Y12 inhibitor clopidogrel fared significantly better after one year compared with those who followed the standard practice of continuing both medications, according to recent research. Stopping aspirin early was found to be superior in terms of the trial’s primary endpoint, a composite of death from cardiovascular causes, heart attack, clotting near the stent, stroke and major bleeding.

 “According to the findings, one-month DAPT followed by clopidogrel monotherapy could be a good option after drug-eluting stent implantation with an advantage of fewer bleeding events.”

Cardiovascular causes accounted for nearly 40% of deaths among study patients age 22 to 29 years at onset of treatment for kidney failure.

Young adults with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) have a higher rate of death and hospitalizations as a result of cardiovascular causes compared with children and adolescents, according to results of a new study.

More than 33,100 patients age 1 to 29 years with ESRD were included in the study population. Patients were categorized by age at ESRD onset (1 to 11 years, 12 to 21 years, and 22 to 29 years or children, adolescents, and young adults, respectively). The researchers identified 4038 deaths in the young adult population. Of these deaths, 39% were related to cardiovascular disease.

Young adults had significantly higher cardiovascular mortality rates than adolescents and children, with adjusted cardiovascular mortality rates at 1, 3, and 5 years of 11, 37, and 70 deaths per 1000 patient-years, respectively, compared with 8, 29, and 65 deaths per 1000 patient-years for adolescents and 10, 22, and 42 deaths per 1000 patient-years for children.

Young adults also had significantly higher adjusted cardiovascular hospitalization rates than adolescents and children, with 1-, 3-, and 5-year rates of 138, 147, and 162 per 1000 patient-years, respectively, compared with 75, 102, and 116 per 1000 patient-years for adolescents and 48, 37, and 33 per 1000 patient-years for children.
Among patients with cystic, hereditary, and congenital conditions, young adults had a significant 55% and 78% higher risk for cardiovascular mortality compared with adolescents and children, respectively, in a fully adjusted model. Among those with glomerulonephritis, young adults had a significant 79% higher risk for cardiovascular mortality compared with children. The risk for young adults did not differ from that of adolescents, however.

Children and adolescents had a significant 59% and 14% lower risk for cardiovascular hospitalization than young adults.

F.D.A. Approves First C for Postpartum Depression:

After childbirth, a dramatic drop in hormones (estrogen and progesterone) in your body may contribute to postpartum depression. This depression  interfere with mother-child bonding and cause family problems.

"Postpartum depression is a serious condition that, when severe, can be life-threatening,” Dr. Tiffany Farchione, acting director of the Division of Psychiatry Products at the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, said in a statement.

Are you an Egg lover? – U must know this.

“Eggs are a nutritive food and, while this study focuses on the amount we’re eating, it’s just as important to pay attention to how the #eggs are cooked and to the add-ons that come with them,”
People who eat an added three or four eggs a week or 300 milligrams of dietary cholesterol per day have a higher risk of both heart disease and early death compared with those who eat fewer eggs, new research finds.

“Eggs, especially the yolk, are a major source of dietary cholesterol,” wrote Victor Zhong, lead study author and a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Preventive Medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago. In a study published, a single large egg contains about 186 milligrams of cholesterol.

The researchers examined data from six US study groups including more than 29,000 people followed for 17½ years on average. Over the follow-up period, a total of 5,400 cardiovascular events occurred, including 1,302 fatal and nonfatal strokes, 1,897 incidents of fatal and nonfatal heart failure and 113 other heart disease deaths. An additional 6,132 participants died of other causes.

Consuming an additional 300 milligrams of dietary cholesterol per day was associated with a 3.2% higher risk of heart disease and a 4.4% higher risk of early death, Zhong’s analysis of the data showed. And each additional half an egg consumed per day was associated with a 1.1% higher risk of cardiovascular disease and 1.9% higher risk of early death due to any cause, the researchers found.

So, it’s an alarming condition for Egg lovers not to eat three or more eggs a week which increases the risk of heart disease and early death.

Do you know? According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention- Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. for men and women – responsible for 1 in every 4 deaths.

Heart disease (cardiovascular disease), refers to various conditions relating to the heart. The most common cause is coronary artery disease, which refers to a buildup of plaque in the arteries. Over time, it can lead to narrowing of arteries and risk of a heart attack. “A heart attack is when part of the heart muscle dies because it is deprived of blood flow or oxygen. And this can occur because it’s a blockage due to a blood clot or plaque, or it can be due to the heart having to work really, really hard that outstrips the oxygen supply.”

Know your cholesterol and blood pressure numbers, exercise, and maintain a normal weight. These are all ways to help reduce your risk of heart disease.

4 Superfoods to maintain your heart health

The heart is an important organ in our system, as such a little damage to it can damage the entire functioning of the body. A healthy heart is equivalent to a robust system; hence we should we caution during intake of junk and processed foods. As these can directly affect the functioning of the whole body. Right from high blood pressure to excess fat in the body, everything is linked with our heart health.

Here are a few nutrient-filled food items that you must include in your daily diet to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and also to maintain good heart health.

Broccoli: Broccoli is a superfood that is filled with the goodness of iron, which is known to lower the high blood pressure. Iron increases the hemoglobin count, thus improves the production of RBC in the blood.

Fatty fish: the consumption of omega-3 fatty acid has been linked to better heart health. Doctors recommend eating fatty fish like salmon, tuna, mackerel, trout to lower the risk of severe heart diseases like coronary heart disease, heart failure, heart stroke, cardiac arrest. It is also a good source of calories that gives energy to your heart, blood vessels and helps in boosting your metabolism.

Berries: It promotes the growth of good cholesterol in the blood and also helps in reducing the elevated blood pressure. All kinds of berries are nutritious and therefore highly recommended for the heart patients.

Flaxseeds: Flax Seeds are rich in fiber, potassium, omega-3 and many other essential nutrients that help in maintaining good heart health. These are known to reduce the risk of diabetic and hypertension which are related to cardiovascular conditions.
