Left #atrial strain predicts incident atrial #fibrillation in the general population: the Copenhagen City Heart Study

Left atrial (LA) strain parameters have been demonstrated to be valuable predictors of atrial fibrillation (AF) in several patient cohorts. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether LA strain, assessed by two-dimensional speckle-tracking echocardiography, can be used to predict the development of AF in the general population. Methods and resultsThis prospective longitudinal study …

Could #glutathione depletion be the Trojan horse of #COVID-19 mortality?

Since the emergence of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the death toll has been increasing daily. Many risk factors are associated with a high mortality rate in COVID-19. Establishment of a common pathway among these risk factors could improve our understanding of COVID-19 severity and mortality. This review aims at establishing this common pathway and its possible …
