American Heart Association says Too many Patients receive Mitral Valve Replacement when Repair is Safer

November 18, 2019

American Heart AssociationPhiladelphia, PA – While clinical guidelines recommend mitral valve repair over replacement, too many patients who would benefit from repair receive replacement valves, with higher rates of death or complications within five years after surgery.

In an effort to combat this, the Mitral Foundation and the American Heart Association® today launched a joint recognition program to identify, recognize and promote the nation’s recognized medical centers for mitral valve repair surgery.

The mitral valve is a valve that lets blood flow from one chamber of the heart, the left atrium, to another called the left ventricle. In mitral valve prolapse, part of the mitral valve slips backward loosely into the chamber called the left atrium. (American Heart Association)

American Heart Association reports Artificial Intelligence examining ECGs predicts Irregular Heartbeat, Death Risk

November 14, 2019

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – According to two preliminary studies to be presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2019 — November 16th-18th in Philadelphia, artificial intelligence can examine electrocardiogram (ECG) test results, a common medical test, to pinpoint patients at higher risk of developing a potentially dangerous irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) or of dying within the next year.

Scientists trained a computer (a neural network or artificial intelligence) to evaluate electrocardiograms (ECGs) to predict which patients are likely to develop an irregular heartbeat – even when doctors interpreted the test results as normal. (American Heart Association)
