Abstract Selective Laser Melting (SLM) is a promising technology for the manufacturing of patient-specific medical implants, due to the intrinsic potential in the realization of one of a kind parts with complex geometries. The present work analyses the production of balloon-expandable stents in cobalt-chromium alloy with a novel mesh which is realized using an industrial SLM system. The stent mesh optimized for the SLM process, was designed, produced, finished and functionally tested by balloon ...

Bulgaria continues to lag behind other EU Member States with respect to chronic disease morbidity and mortality prevention. In line with efforts targeting the improvement of dietary practices, this comparative study assessed objective understanding of five different front-of-package labels (FOPL) (Reference Intakes, Multiple Traffic Lights, Warning label, Nutri-Score, and Health Star Rating) in a sample of 1010 Bulgarian adults. Objective understanding was assessed by comparing the results of tw...

Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) is responsible for the death of millions of people annually around the world, which makes predictive analyses of AMI mortality risk necessary. Rich clinical data in electronic health records (EHR) makes such predictive modeling possible. However, missing values in EHR data is a major issue. Also, the interpretability of predictive models in medicine and healthcare is vital for medical professionals. Therefore, this study examines the impact of imputing missing v...

Six core behavioural risk factors (poor diet, physical activity, sedentary behaviour, alcohol misuse, smoking and unhealthy sleep patterns) have been identified as strong determinants of chronic disease, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancers. Smartphones have the potential to provide a real-time, pervasive, unobtrusive and cost-effective way to measure health behaviours and deliver instant feedback to users. Despite this, validity of using smartphones to measure these six key beha...

OBJECTIVE The objectives have been to determine the prognostic value of having a low ankle-brachial index (ABI) for different cardiovascular diseases and whether it improves the predictive capacity of the main cardiovascular risk scores proposed for Spain. DESIGN Population-based cohort study LOCATION: A health area of the province of Badajoz (Spain) PARTICIPANTS: 2,833 subjects, representative of residents, between 25 and 79 years old, MEASUREMENTS: The ABI was measured at baseline and the firs...

Objective This study aimed to examine the association between loneliness, social isolation and cardiovascular disease (CVD), looking at both self-reported CVD diagnosis and CVD-related hospital admissions. Methods Data were derived from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing linked with administrative hospital records and mortality registry data. The analytical sample size was 5850 for the analysis of self-reported CVD and 4587 of CVD derived from hospital records, with a follow-up up to 9.6 y...

Objectives The aim of this study was to use the parametric g-formula to estimate the 19-year risk of myocardial infarction (MI) under hypothetical interventions on six cardiovascular risk factors. Design and setting A populations-based cohort study with repeated measurements, the Tromso Study. Primary outcome measure Myocardial infarction. Participants We estimated the relative and absolute risk reduction under feasible and intensive risk reduction strategies for smoking, physical activity, alco...

In this study we investigated the potential of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) for providing insight into microstructural changes in arterial tissue by exploring the influence that cell, collagen and elastin content have on fractional anisotropy (FA), mean diffusivity (MD) and tractography. Five ex vivo porcine carotid artery models (n = 6 vessels each) (native, fixed native, collagen degraded, elastin degraded and decellularised) were developed to selectively remove components of arterial micros...

Ultrasound color Doppler imaging (CDI) provides a map of the axial blood flow velocities in a 2D/3D region of interest. While CDI is clinically effective for a qualitative analysis of abnormal blood flows, e.g. for valvular disease in cardiology, it is in limited use for quantitative measures, mainly hampered by low frame rate and measurement bias. These limitations can be reduced by different approaches towards high frame rate (HFR) imaging at the expense of reduced image quality and penetratio...

Abstract The natural environment has been considered an important determinant of cardiovascular morbidity. This work seeks to assess the impact of the winter thermal environment on hospital admissions from diseases of the circulatory system by using three biometeorological indices in five regions of the Iberian Peninsula. A theoretical index based on a thermophysiological model (Universal Thermal Climate Index [UTCI]) and two experimental biometeorological ones (Net Effective Temperature [NET] a...
