ECG Deep-Learning Algorithm Predicts Mortality Post Surgery
ECG Deep-Learning Algorithm Predicts Mortality Post Surgery Algorithm interpreting preoperative ECGs can identify risk for postoperative death in those undergoing cardiac surgery, noncardiac surgery, and interventional procedures, a large new study showed. The algorithm was more effective in identifying high-risk patients who went on to experience postoperative mortality than a widely used risk tool.


FDA Approves First Pulsed Field Ablation System for AF
FDA Approves First Pulsed Field Ablation System for AF The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the PulseSelect Pulsed Field Ablation (PFA) System (Medtronic) for the treatment of both paroxysmal and persistent atrial fibrillation (AF), the manufacturer has announced.


A Synopsis of the Evidence for the Science and Clinical Management of Cardiovascular-Kidney-Metabolic Syndrome
A Synopsis of the Evidence for the Science and Clinical Management of Cardiovascular-Kidney-Metabolic Syndrome A growing appreciation of the pathophysiological interrelatedness of metabolic risk factors such as obesity and diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and cardiovascular disease has led to the conceptualization of cardiovascular-kidney-metabolic syndrome. The confluence of metabolic risk factors and chronic kidney disease within cardiovascular-kidney-metabolic syndrome is strongly linked to risk for adverse cardiovascular and kidney outcomes.

ACC/AHA Issue Updated Atrial Fibrillation Guideline
ACC/AHA Issue Updated Atrial Fibrillation Guideline The American College of Cardiology (ACC), the American Heart Association (AHA), the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP), and the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) have issued an updated guideline for preventing and optimally managing atrial fibrillation (AF).


One step closer to the new frontiers of healthcare for cardiomyopathy patients
One step closer to the new frontiers of healthcare for cardiomyopathy patients There were great advances in the treatment of heart failure (HF) over the past decades, characterised by the inclusion of ARNI and SGLT2 inhibitors in the latest guidelines. The use of cardiac myosin inhibitors specifically for patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is also making large steps forward, which reflects the next step towards more personalised treatment.


Roles for cardiologists in government, research councils and regulatory sectors
Roles for cardiologists in government, research councils and regulatory sectors Clinicians have numerous opportunities to gain experience in governmental or regulatory organisations, including health technology assessment bodies and payors. These organisations often seek advice from individuals with clinical experience and knowledge, and they increasingly engage with the clinical community on a regular basis. Cardiologists can also take on formal advisory roles, either through working groups or ad hoc and standing committees. Additionally, there may be part-time or full-time employment opportunities available, often providing leadership in research councils.
