Purpose of Review Heart transplant (HT) is the therapy of choice for patients with end-stage heart failure (HF), leading to substantial improvements in quality of life, functional status, and longevity compared to optimal medical therapy for end-stage HF. However, race/ethnic disparities in post-HT survival persist and remain a major concern. The purpose of this review is to describe differences in post-transplant outcomes based on race/ethnicity and to highlight evolving knowledge of the reason...

Purpose of Review There has been significant progress made during the last few decades in the management of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). Despite this, residual risk remains an unmet need for secondary prevention and high-risk primary prevention patients. First onset and recurrent cardiovascular events remain a major issue despite recommendations for a healthy lifestyle and current optimal medical therapy, which includes the use of maximally tolerated statin therapy plus or min...

Purpose of Review The long-term use of opioid and cannabinoid medications to control chronic pain and treat opioid use disorders now involves a large proportion of the population in the United States. Yet, the cardiovascular risks of opioids are not well understood. This systematic review summarizes the current literature to assess the potential cardiovascular disease risks associated with opioid and cannabinoid medications.

Purpose of Review Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) occurs when mitral leaflets are prevented from adequate coaptation by underlying left ventricular (LV) dysfunction, mitral annular dilation, or both. This review aims to clarify the complex clinical issues in FMR, including diagnosis and therapy.

Purpose of Review The goal of this paper is to review the current state of and ongoing developments in the detection and diagnosis of cardiac allograft rejection using genetic and genomic approaches.
Purpose of Review Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a chronic, obstructive disease of the peripheral vasculature which is a coronary heart disease risk equivalent. African Americans (AA) are at the highest risk for developing this disease at every age group. The purpose of this review is to shed light on the risk factors for PAD and their implications for disease manifestation in AA, and to highlight ways to combat these known racial disparities in order to achieve cardiovascular health equity ...

Purpose of Review Bicycling as a mode of transportation can be an easy and inexpensive way of integrating health enhancing physical activity into everyday life. In the present paper, we summarize the evidence from studies on bicycling for transportation and recreation in relation to cardiovascular disease prevention. We also estimate the population impact of increasing bicycling as a mode of transportation.

Purpose of Review Obesity is an intractable clinical and public health problem that is associated with morbidity and mortality. This review provides an update on current and emerging behavioral weight loss interventions (BWLIs).

Purpose of Review Uterine fibroids are the cause of significant morbidity for women particularly women of racial and ethnic minorities. This review seeks to draw connections between fibroids and another cause of morbidity and mortality, cardiovascular disease. Fibroids are the most common neoplasm affecting women as well as the most common reason for undergoing hysterectomy. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the USA, and heart disease and stroke disproportionately impact w...
