A small study examining how chemotherapy-induced cardiomyopathy found that men experienced greater side effects, including significantly lower left and right ventricular ejection.

New research from the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom suggests that one in three people with high blood pressure fail to take their prescribed medications.

Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) have been proven effective in reducing mortality in patients with severe systolic heart failure. A recent study used two models—one for heart failure and another for proportional risk—to identify patients less likely to benefit from ICDs.

In a new study led by researchers at Geisinger Obesity Institute in Danville, Pennsylvania, investigators were surprised when they saw overwhelming evidence that weight-loss surgery decreased long-term risks of heart failure by more than half in obese patients.

New research from Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, has shown that the aggressive lowering of blood pressure in people with hypertension can reduce their chances of developing left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH).
