Diuretic may not be best way to reduce CHF water retention

... milligrams of lixivaptan. In addition, lixivaptan dramatically increased solute-free water excretion meaning the urine from patients taking the drug removed more water than sodium from the body. The apparent effectiveness of the drug not only holds promise as a new treatment for heart failure patients, but also...

Low radiation dose still means successful interventional procedures, a new study shows

...iagnostic quality images. Which means, that we can dramatically reduce the radiation dose--when we perform the interventional procedure," he said. "We can successfully perform biopsies, needle aspirations and place catheters even if the image is a little muddy," he added. "Two hundred and one percutaneous biopsy ...

Scientists discover possible link between oxidative stress and non-hereditary degenerative disease

Patients with the greatest and most persistent increases in CRP concentration suffer higher mortality, and CRP is always deposited in and around the damaged heart tissue. Inflammation contributes significantly to the extent of...

Stroke-associated damage to brain structure may lead to heart attack

...By finding a specific brain area associated with a dramatically increased risk of heart damage, we can identify at-risk patients when they arrive at the hospital and put them on protective therapy, which should have a direct impact on their care." About 5 percent of stroke patients will also have a heart attack ...

Mayo Clinic finding may double genetic screening effectiveness for sudden death heart condition
