Grip Strength for Risk Stratification of CV Death

Reduced muscle strength may be associated with increased risk of mortality. The PURE study has indicated that reduced grip strength using the Jamar dynamometer is inversely associated with all-cause mortality, CV mortality, non-CV mortality, MI and stroke.

Renal Denervation Resurfaces

The benefits of renal denervation as a means to lower BP remain controversial. The DENERHTN is the latest prospective, open-label, randomized study indicating that renal denervation, in addition to optimal medical therapy, is associated with a reduction in ambulatory systolic BP at 6-months.

Outcomes of Secondary AF

Clinical outcomes of secondary AF are unknown. Data from the Framingham Heart Study Participants have indicated that secondary AF is most common following cardiothoracic surgery, non-cardiothoracic surgery, infection, and acute MI. Stroke risk and mortality were similar between those with and without secondary precipitants.

Infective Endocarditis

The trends in IE prevalence following the 2007 IE prophylaxis guidelines in the US are unknown. Data from the NIS database from 2000-2011 have indicated that IE incidence has increased in the US. Streptococcus has become the most common organism since the 2007 guideline revision. The rates of hospitalization and valve surgery for IE have not changed.
