New study data show a significant cardiovascular burden and increased risks in patients who survived acute COVID-19, according to researchers.

After 1 year, the researchers found that cardiovascular (CV) risks and strain increased with increasing severity of COVID-19, but even those who were not hospitalized had an increased risk of most CV outcomes compared to a control group. That was the top story in cardiology last week.

Another top story covered study data showing that an atrial shunt device did not improve outcomes compared to a false entity in patients with heart failure (HF) with preserved ejection fraction.

In survivors of acute COVID-19, CV risk, ‘significant’ burden

Compared to controls, acute COVID-19 survivors have increased CV risks and burdens after 1 year, even if they were not hospitalized for COVID-19, researchers in Natural medicine. Read more.

Atriel shunt does not improve results vs. sham in HFpEF: REDUCE LAP-HF II trial

Placement of an atrial shunt device did not reduce the frequency of HF events or improve health status relative to sham in patients with HF with preserved ejection fraction, according to the results of the REDUCE LAP-HF II study published in The Lancet. Read more.

COVID-19 “significantly” affects the results of cardiac arrest in the hospital

The survival rate after cardiac arrest in the hospital was lower during the first increase in COVID-19 compared to previous years, even among patients admitted without confirmed COVID-19, researchers reported. Read more.

Detection of coronary artery calcium in patients with non-small cell lung cancer undergoing thoracic radiation was associated with an increased risk of myocardial infarction and stroke, even when found in small amounts, researchers reported. Read more.

Ultra-processed foods increase the risk of CVD mortality from all causes of pre-existing CVD

A diet rich in ultra-processed foods was found to be associated with increased dangers of all causes and CVD mortality among patients with pre-existing CVD, according to data published in European Heart Journal. Read more.
