How a Genetic Mutation Can Cause Individuals With Normal Cholesterol Levels to Develop Coronary Artery Disease at a Young Age

A novel molecular pathway to explain how a mutation in the gene ACTA2 can cause individuals in their 30s -- with normal cholesterol levels and no other risk factors -- to develop coronary artery disease has now been ...

AI Finds a Way to People's Hearts (Literally!)

Scientists have successfully developed a model that utilizes AI to accurately classify cardiac functions and valvular heart diseases from chest radiographs. The Area Under the Curve, or AUC, of the AI classification showed a high level of accuracy, exceeding 0.85 for almost all indicators and ...

Dissolving Cardiac Device Monitors, Treats Heart Disease

研究人员已经开发出一种柔软,福莱希ble, wireless device to monitor and treat heart disease and dysfunction in the days, weeks or months following traumatic heart-related events. And, after the device is no longer needed, it harmlessly dissolves inside the body, bypassing the need for ...
