Study finds stroke patients are nearly twice as likely to be functionally independent if treated by a specialized team that travels to them to perform surgical clot removal
Black adults have a higher incidence of hypertension (HTN) and a greater risk of HTN-related cardiovascular disease compared to white adults. Even mild elevations in blood pressure are associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease; therefore, early interventions for high blood pressure and hypertension are critical to assist in recommendations for lifestyle modification.
Cardiologist will partner with organization to create awareness for congenital heart disease to improve community health
Two of Mount Sinai’s top doctors will be honored with prestigious awards at the American Heart Association’s New York City Heart and Stroke Ball, taking place virtually on Wednesday, June 9.
By: Kelsey Klopfenstein | Published: February 3, 2021 | 1:14 pm | SHARE: Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Someone has a heart attack every 39 seconds, and cardiovascular disease claims more lives each year than all forms of cancer combined, according to the American Heart Association’s 2021 Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics Update.
The American Heart Association has recognized Comer Children’s Hospital with its top honor for resuscitation care of newborns and children, and University of Chicago Medicine with its top honor for stroke care. The awards reflect commitment to high-quality, advanced care for children and adults.
Robert M. Carey, MD, has been named a Distinguished Scientist of the American Heart Association for his “extraordinary contributions” to cardiovascular research.
Mount Sinai Health System Hospitals Receive Top Quality Achievement Awards for Stroke and Cardiac Care
New study results confirm that guideline-directed medical therapy is as effective as more invasive procedures at preventing death, stroke, and heart attack in patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD).
The study results suggest that guideline-directed medical therapy should be the initial treatment strategy for patients with stable CAD.
The study results validate the evidence-based, guideline-directed, conservative treatment approach that the cardiovascular specialists at Nuvance Health have always used to treat CAD.
Mount Sinai Cardiologists Talk Prevention for American Heart Month
Two new studies show it’s a person’s coronary artery calcium score and not risk factors that will determine if a person develops heart disease. Both studies were presented at last month’s American Heart Association Scientific Sessions 2019
A new 15-year study by researchers at the Intermountain Healthcare Heart Institute in Salt Lake City found that patients with peripheral arterial disease may not be prescribed life-saving medications at the same rate as for other heart conditions.
Researchers from the Intermountain Healthcare Heart Institute in Salt Lake City have identified new mutations in a gene commonly associated with non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (NIDC), a disease that weakens the heart muscle, making it more difficult to adequately circulate blood to meet the body’s needs.
In a new study presented to heart specialists from around the world, researchers at the Intermountain Healthcare Heart Institute in Salt Lake City found that simple “nudges” in the form of texts, emails and phone calls, not only help patients fill that first statin prescription, but also continue to help them take their medications over the long term.
