A Johns Hopkins study finds that healthy people who carry a genetic mutation for arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C) are at much higher risk of developing the symptoms of the life-threatening heart disease if they participate in endurance sports and frequent exercise. The study also suggests that those carriers who significantly cut back on their exercise regimen may reduce their risk or delay the onset of symptoms. An article on the study results is...

The risk of cardiovascular sudden death was very small and only about 30% of the incidence were due to diseases that could be reliably detected by pre-participation screening, even with 12-lead ECGs, according to research in a U.S. high school athlete population presented March 10 at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) Scientific Sessions. Sudden death in young competitive athletes due to cardiovascular disease is an important community issue, which could impact the design of...

Largely present in women, 'broken heart syndrome' is often triggered by stress Even though a newly recognized cardiomyopathy, which mainly impacts women, is typically treatable, Tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy can also be deadly when compounded by other co-morbidities, such as heart failure, according to a study being presented March 9 at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) Scientific Sessions. This condition, formally known as Tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) and informally known as...

Researchers at the University of Minnesota's Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology and the Lillehei Heart Institute have utilized molecular genetic engineering to optimize heart performance in models of diastolic heart failure by creating an optimized protein that can aid in high-speed relaxation similar to fast twitching muscles. Within heart cells, calcium plays a major role in orchestrating normal heart pump function. However, in diastolic failure the calcium signaling...

The English Cocker Spaniel is a hunting dog, used to drive game toward the guns. This breed has been around for over 500 years. During the mid 1800s, several types of dogs were classified as Cockers; however the breeds were reclassified later in the late 1800s once breed standards were developed. There are two types of Cocker Spaniel, the American and the English. These were shown together until 1936, when the English Cocker received status as a separate breed. The two somewhat resemble each...
