Right Ventricular Global Longitudinal Strain and Outcomes in Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction

Right ventricular (RV) strain has emerged as an accurate tool for RV function assessment and is a powerful predictor of survival in patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction. However, its prognostic impact in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) remains unclear. The aim of this study was to compare the prognostic value of RV global longitudinal strain (RVGLS) by two-dimensional … Continue reading Right Ventricular Global Longitudinal Strain and Outcomes in Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction

Dietary Intake of #Acrylamide and Risk of Breast, Endometrial, and Ovarian Cancers: A Systematic Review and Dose–Response Meta-analysis

Acrylamide is a probable human carcinogen. Aside from occupational exposures and smoking, diet is the main source of exposure in humans. We performed a systematic review of the association between estimated dietary intake of acrylamide and risk of female breast, endometrial, and ovarian cancers in nonexperimental studies published through February 25, 2020, and conducted a dose–response meta-analysis. We identified 18 papers covering 10 different study … Continue reading Dietary Intake of #Acrylamide and Risk of Breast, Endometrial, and Ovarian Cancers: A Systematic Review and Dose–Response Meta-analysis
