Bioresorbable coronary scaffolds: a novel device-based solution in search of its clinical need

19 February 2014 Bioresorbable coronary scaffolds: a novel device-based solution in search of its clinical need ...

Personalized cardiovascular disease prevention by applying individualized prediction of treatment effects

Large-scale randomized clinical trials have established the efficacy of cholesterol-lowering, blood pressure-lowering, and anti-platelet therapy to prevent cardiovascular diseases. A challenge for clinicians is to apply group-level evidence from these tri ...

Coronary artery disease in systemic sclerosis not clinically apparent: findings from optical coherence tomography

4 February 2014 Coronary artery disease in systemic sclerosis not clinically apparent: findings from optical coherence tomography ...

A growing accessory coronary artery aneurysm in the septal branch

4 February 2014 A growing accessory coronary artery aneurysm in the septal branch ...

Recommendations for organization of care for adults with congenital heart disease and for training in the subspecialty of 'Grown-up Congenital Heart Disease' in Europe: a position paper of the Working Group on Grown-up Congenital Heart Disease of the Euro

28 January 2014 Recommendations for organization of care for adults with congenital heart disease and for training in the subspecialty of 'Grown-up Congenital Heart Disease' in Europe: a position paper of the Working Group on Grown-up Congenital ...

Bioresorbable vascular scaffolds in acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction: a prospective multicentre study 'Prague 19'

Aims Bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVSs) have been studied in chronic coronary artery disease, but not in acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). This prospective multicentre study analysed the feasibility and safety of BVS implantati ...

The appropriate and justified use of medical radiation in cardiovascular imaging: a position document of the ESC Associations of Cardiovascular Imaging, Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions and Electrophysiology

The benefits of cardiac imaging are immense, and modern medicine requires the extensive and versatile use of a variety of cardiac imaging techniques. Cardiologists are responsible for a large part of the radiation exposures every person gets per year from ...

Everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffolds for treatment of patients presenting with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction: BVS STEMI first study

Aims We evaluated the feasibility and the acute performance of the everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) for the treatment of patients presenting with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). ...

Risks and benefits of cardiac imaging: an analysis of risks related to imaging for coronary artery disease

30 December 2013 Risks and benefits of cardiac imaging: an analysis of risks related to imaging for coronary artery disease ...

Bioresorbable scaffolds: rationale, current status, challenges, and future

Current generation of drug-eluting stents has significantly improved the outcomes of percutaneous coronary intervention by substantially reducing in-stent restenosis and stent thrombosis. However, a potential limitation of these stents is the permanent pr ...

Prognostic models for stable coronary artery disease based on electronic health record cohort of 102 023 patients

Aims The population with stable coronary artery disease (SCAD) is growing but validated models to guide their clinical management are lacking. We developed and validated prognostic models for all-cause mortality and non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI) or ...

Sudden cardiac death in children (1-18 years): symptoms and causes of death in a nationwide setting

Aims Hitherto, sudden cardiac death in children (SCDc)—defined as sudden cardiac death (SCD) in the 1–18 years old—has been incompletely described in the general population. Knowledge on incidence rates, causes of death and symptoms prior to death is spars ...

N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide predicts cardiovascular complications in pregnant women with congenital heart disease

Aims In women with congenital heart disease (CHD), cardiovascular complications during pregnancy are common, but the risk assessment of these patients remains difficult. This study sought to determine the independent role of N-terminal pro-B-type natriuret ...

Multimodality imaging reveals regurgitant jet lesion in aneurysmal anterior mitral leaflet: a severe complication of endocarditis

13 December 2013 Multimodality imaging reveals regurgitant jet lesion in aneurysmal anterior mitral leaflet: a severe complication of endocarditis ...

A novel type of human spontaneous coronary atherosclerosis with triglyceride deposition

13 December 2013 A novel type of human spontaneous coronary atherosclerosis with triglyceride deposition ...

Short-term effects of air pollution on out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in Stockholm

Background Although ozone (O3) and other pollutants have been associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, the effects of O3 on out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) have rarely been addressed and existing studies have presented inconsistent fin ...

Possible joint pathways of early pre-eclampsia and congenital heart defects via angiogenic imbalance and potential evidence for cardio-placental syndrome

3 December 2013 Possible joint pathways of early pre-eclampsia and congenital heart defects via angiogenic imbalance and potential evidence for cardio-placental syndrome ...

In vivo detection of high-risk coronary plaques by radiofrequency intravascular ultrasound and cardiovascular outcome: results of the ATHEROREMO-IVUS study

Aims Acute coronary syndromes (ACS) are mostly caused by plaque rupture. This study aims to investigate the prognostic value of in vivo detection of high-risk coronary plaques by intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) in patients undergoing coronary angiography. ...

Are air pollution and traffic noise independently associated with atherosclerosis: the Heinz Nixdorf Recall Study

Aims Living close to high traffic has been linked to subclinical atherosclerosis, however it is not clear, whether fine particulate matter (PM) air pollution or noise, two important traffic-related exposures, are responsible for the association. We investi ...

Pulmonary hypertension related to congenital heart disease: a call for action

Pulmonary arterial hypertension related to congenital heart disease (PAH-CHD) is a common type of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Despite this, little emphasis has been given to this group of patients until recently, when compared with idiopathic P ...

Journal Room

Peer-reviewed research articles are not included in the Health Well's catalogues which principally focus on "grey literature". 

On this page you will find summaries of research articles published in Open Access Journals and drawn down by RSS feeds from those journals . These journals cover about a quarter of all peer-reviewed journal articles and so are not comprehensive. In addition, the Health Well's topic-managers supplement these summaries with research articles from topic-related online journals.

The journal articles accessible on the Health Well website have been compiled from various sources that are not controlled by the Institute of Public Health in Ireland (IPH). IPH is therefore not responsible for the content of external websites and the inclusion of a link to an external website from the Health Well should not be understood to be an endorsement of that website.
