ECG measurements: "Our chest strap moistens itself"

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/07/2015] When measuring myocardial activity, it is important for the skin to always stay moist under the electrodes of the ECG. Only then can data be consistently transferred. Athletes have an easier time with this: they are used to sweating. This is a lot harder for older patients.ECG measurements: "Our chest strap moistens itself" - Read more

Transcatheter Pacing System: The world’s smallest cardiac pacemaker

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/07/2015] In the case of cardiac arrhythmia, the normal heart rate gets out of balance due to various reasons. In some cases, it is necessary to implant a cardiac pacemaker. Just like with any intervention, this type of surgery also involves risks. In the worst-case scenario, this can lead to abnormal wound healing or obliteration of the vascular system.Transcatheter Pacing System: The world’s smallest cardiac pacemaker - Read more

Wanted: rapid test to prevent deep vein thrombosis

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/07/2015] Deep vein thrombosis is not just a risk factor for frequent flyers but also for wearers of cardiovascular implants and newly operated patients. Blood thinners prevent these dangerous blood clots from forming, but they need to be carefully adjusted and do not work the same way in every patient. A detailed analysis of platelets (thrombocytes) could prevent complications in the future.Wanted: rapid test to prevent deep vein thrombosis - Read more

Photo: Pieces of chocolate [15/06/2015] Eating up to 100 g of chocolate every day is linked to lowered heart disease and stroke risk, finds research published online in the journal Heart. There does not seem to be any evidence for cutting out chocolate to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, conclude the researchers.100 g of chocolate daily linked to lowered stroke risk - Read more

Aneurysms may recur years after endovascular treatment

Photo: Blood vessel [09/06/2015] Endovascular treatment (EVT) of intracranial aneurysm is effective in preventing long-term bleeding, but may be followed by aneurysm recurrences in a significant proportion of cases, according to a new magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) study.Aneurysms may recur years after endovascular treatment - Read more

Stents: Braiding versus cutting

Photo: Stents [22/05/2015] Braided stents are nothing new in medicine, but their manufacturing process is still time-consuming. This is why Professor Stefan Jockenhövel from the RWTH Aachen University and his team want to make machine production possible. Stents: Braiding versus cutting - Read more

Heart attack: Differences between women and men

( Source: MEDICA.de )

Graphic: Heart in the human body [19/05/2015] There is a statistically significant difference in how women and men are treated following a heart attack. These gender differences are reflected in the rate of risk factor control, which was lower in women, and in the rate of hospital readmission for a further heart attack, which was higher in women than in men. The conclusions are reported in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.Heart attack: Differences between women and men - Read more

How cardiac arrhythmias develop

Photo: Heart alert on a cardiogram [06/05/2015] Cardiac arrhythmias affect a high proportion of the aging population. Mitochondria are the "powerhouses of the cells", and scientists in Cologne have now shown that even a few heart cells with reduced mitochondrial function are sufficient to trigger arrhythmias.How cardiac arrhythmias develop - Read more
