CRF research to be presented at ACC.19

March 14, 2019

New York, NY - March 14, 2019 - Research from the Cardiovascular Research Foundation and the CRF Clinical Trials Center will be presented at the American College of Cardiology's 68th Annual Scientific Session taking place March 16-18, 2019 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. They will be presenting the latest data on percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), imaging technologies, renal denervation, and transcatheter aortic valve replacement.

Dr. Martin Leon, CRF Founder and Co-Director, Medical Research and Education, will present results of the PARTNER 3 Trial: Transcatheter or Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement in Low-Risk Patients during the joint ACC/NEJM late-breaking clinical trial session on Sunday, March 17 from 8:00 AM - 8:15 AM in the ACC.19 Main Tent (Great Hall). Additionally, Dr. Ajay Kirtane, Co-Director of CRF's annual scientific symposium, TCT, will be presenting six-month results of the RADIANCE-HTN SOLO trial following the addition of a recommended standardized stepped-care antihypertensive treatment to the randomized treatment on Saturday, March 17 from 9:17 AM - 9:27 AM in Room 208.

CRF will also host a satellite program on the management of complex and higher-risk patients indicated for coronary revascularization prior to the start of ACC. The program, CHIP at ACC.19: Practical Strategies for Troubleshooting Complex Cases, will be held on Friday, March 15, 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM at the Marriott New Orleans (Mardi Gras A-E Ballroom, 3rd floor). Case-based presentations will address treatment of calcified lesions, bifurcation disease, chronic total occlusions, in-stent restenosis, and coronary artery disease in the post-CABG setting. Expert faculty will offer insights into selecting patients and devices, optimizing technique, and overcoming difficult anatomy.

Additional research from CRF and the CRF Clinical Trials Center include the following presentations:

Human genes for coronary artery disease make them more prolific parents
Coronary artery disease may have persisted in human populations because the genes that cause this late-striking disease also contribute to greater numbers of children, reports Dr Sean Byars of The University of Melbourne and Associate Professor Michael Inouye of the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute, Australia, in a study published June 22, 2017 in PLOS Genetics.

Depressed patients have more frequent chest pain even in the absence of coronary artery disease, according to results from the Emory Cardiovascular Biobank presented at ESC Congress today by Dr Salim Hayek, a cardiologist at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia, US.1 The findings suggest that pain and depression may share a common neurochemical pathway.

Patients without obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) are just as at risk of angina as those with obstructive CAD, according to new research published today in the European Heart Journal-Quality of Care and Clinical Outcomes.
Diagnostic imaging can rule out coronary artery disease in patients with atypical chest pain
Non-invasive diagnostic imaging can rule out coronary artery disease (CAD) in about 50 percent of women with atypical chest pain who are at relatively low risk for CAD, while exposing them to only a modest dose of radiation.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease shown to affect the development of coronary artery calcification
Data revealed today at The International Liver CongressTM 2015 show that non-alcoholic fatty liver disease plays a role in the early stages of coronary atherosclerosis and in its more severe form it can also promote the development of coronary artery calcification.

#517 Life in Plastic, Not Fantastic
Our modern lives run on plastic. It's in the computers and phones we use. It's in our clothing, it wraps our food. It surrounds us every day, and when we throw it out, it's devastating for the environment. This week we air a live show we recorded at the 2019 Advancement of Science meeting in Washington, D.C., where Bethany Brookshire sat down with three plastics researchers - Christina Simkanin, Chelsea Rochman, and Jennifer Provencher - and a live audience to discuss plastics in our oceans. Where they are, where they are going, and what they carry with them. Related links:...
