These Faculty are the best of the best. We are proud to honor them with these well-deserved awards." MORE» Dr. J.L. Mehta to deliver the fifth HJC Swan Memorial Lecture at the Opening Ceremony of the International Academy of Cardiology, 16th World Congress on Heart Disease Annual Scientific Sessions 2011
Jay MehtaAsher Kimchi, M.D., Founder and Chairman of the International Academy of Cardiology, today announced the selection of Jay Mehta, M.D., PhD., Director, Molecular Cardiology, Professor of Internal Medicine and Physiology and Biophysics and Stebbins Chair in Cardiology, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock, to deliver the fifth H.J.C. Swan Memorial Lecture at the Opening Ceremony of the International Academy of Cardiology, 16th World Congress on Heart Disease, Annual Scientific Sessions 2011 to be held in Vancouver, BC, Canada, from Saturday, July 23 through Tuesday, July 26, 2011.
Dr. Mehta will present on the topic of “Angiogenesis in Atherosclerosis; Mechanisms and Therapeutic Targets”. Angiogenesis or generation of new blood vessels has been known to be the basis of development of blood vessels in fetal life. Recently, angiogenesis has been shown to be a fundamental basis of growth and spread of certain tumors. Angiogenesis has also been identified in the media and adventitia of atherosclerotic blood vessels leading to the concept that atherosclerosis is “cancer of the blood vessels”. Work in his laboratory has suggested a potent role of reactive oxygen species released in response to the activation of angiotensin II and oxidized LDL receptor LOX-1 in angiogenesis.
MORE» Statin therapy may have a potential role in patients in the early stages of aortic stenosis to slow the progression to severe aortic stenosis
statinUntil now all of the prospective trials testing the role of statins in aortic valve disease have been negative for the treatment of calcific aortic stenosis. These trials include SALTIRE, SEAS and Astronomer. RAAVE is the first study to evaluate the use of statins for calcific aortic valve disease in an open label study treating only patients with elevated LDL with moderate to severe aortic stenosis. The results of these studies demonstrated opposing effects of statins on the valve. In an Study by Nalini M. Rajamannan, M.D et al from Chicago, IL, USA, presented at the International Academy of Cardiology, 15th World Congress on Heart Disease, Annual Scientific Sessions 2010 in Vancouver, B.C., Canada , results combining SALTIRE and RAAVE demonstrated a positive benefit of slowing progression of aortic stenosis.

California Teaching Hospitals That Used More Resources Had Lower Mortality Rates
cardiology graphic“Looking Forward, Looking Back: Assessing Variations in Hospital Resource Use and Outcomes for Elderly Patients With Heart Failure," a study published in the early online edition of the journal Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, concludes that California teaching hospitals with higher resource use in caring for hospitalized heart failure patients had lower mortality rates.  Previous studies aimed at assessing how resources are used for expired elderly Medicare beneficiaries with heart failure, as a consequence of study design, have not been able to draw conclusions on health outcomes.  Dr. Michael Ong et al’s study, "Looking Forward, Looking Back” departs from assessing expenditures on deceased patients exclusively in order to circumvent limitations of previous studies, namely: inability to identify differences in health outcomes across different hospitals and assuming patterns of resource use among all patients are well represented by resource use in expired patients.
