Highlights in Cardiology

Vitamin D supplementation improves ejection fraction

As reported in Nutrition, Metabolism, and Cardiovascular Diseases, vitamin D supplementation (4000 IU/d of cholecalciferol x 6 months) of vitamin D-deficient heart failure patients (n=23) resulted in an increase in the ejection fraction compared to placebo (6.7 vs. -4.3%).

Relationship benefit in women with IHD

As reported in BMC Medicine, women who were married or living with a partner had a decreased risk of mortality (RR=0.72) after the first ischemic heart disease (IHD) event compared to women who were not married or living with a partner. The study involved 734626 women with no history of IHD who were followed for 8.6 y; there were 30747 women with a first IHD event and 2148 deaths.

Statin use associated with decreased mortality in HFPEF

Based on a meta-analysis reported in the American Journal of Cardiology, statin use by patients (n=17985) with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF) is associated with a 40% reduction in mortality.
