Cardiology services not suitable for thrombectomy after acute stroke

Apps and colleagues highlight the need for increased availability of acute thrombectomy services in light of recent stroke trials showing that thrombectomy is more efficacious than thrombolysis.1 However, involvement of cardiology services is not an effective solution.

Mitral valve prolapse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mitral valve prolapse(MVP) (a.k.a. floppy mitral valve syndrome, systolic click murmur syndrome or billowing mitral leaflet) is a valvular heart disease characterized by the displacement of an abnormally thickened mitral valve leaflet into the left atrium during systole.[1] It is the primary form of myxomatous degeneration of the valve. There are various types of MVP, broadly classified as classic and nonclassic. In its nonclassic form, MVP carries a low risk of complications and often can be kept minimal by dietary attention. In severe cases of classic MVP, complications include mitral regurgitation, infective endocarditis, congestive heart failure, and, in rare circumstances, cardiac arrest.

Stem cell treatment following a heart attack | Cochrane

Background: Currently the standard treatment for people suffering a heart attack (due to a blockage in the artery supplying blood to the heart) is direct opening of the artery with a tiny balloon in a procedure called primary angioplasty and introduction of a small tube (called a stent) into the artery to keep it open. The use of primary angioplasty and stents to reopen the blocked artery can lead to a 35% reduction in the mortality (death rate) associated with this condition. In recent years, bone marrow stem/progenitor cells have been investigated as a potential treatment. They may prevent the damage to the heart muscle caused by a heart attack, when used in addition to the treatment offered by primary angioplasty and standard medical therapy.
