  • Cardiac imaging during exercise may unmask latent myocardial dysfunction in endurance athletes

    "The optimal 'dose' of exercise for maintaining cardiovascular health is currently a hot topic of debate, with growing evidence that excessive exertion over prolonged periods might lead to irreversible cardiac damage. Previous work has demonstrated that the thin-walled right ventricle may be the 'weak link' in the athlete's heart, being more susceptible to exercise-induced damage than the left side of the heart. New research now reveals that imaging investigations such as echocardiography and cardiac MRI can fail to detect subtle signs of exercise-induced right ventricular cardiomyopathy if they are performed whilst the athlete at rest. The findings of the paper may herald a key role for exercise imaging in the cardiovascular assessment of athletic individuals."

  • Using modern criteria, ECG is the most effective strategy for screening of CVD in athletes

    Preparticipation screening for the early detection of potentially life threatening cardiac diseases is worldwide recommended by a growing number of sports and scientific organisations. According to the 30 years Italian experience, adding a 12-lead resting electrocardiogram (ECG) to the athlete's preparticipation examination (PPE) may significantly decrease the incidence of sudden cardiac death (SCD). Luis Serratosa comments on a paper published in the Journal of Electrocardiology.

  • Experts call for ‘all hands on deck’ to tackle global burden of non-communicable disease

    A group of some of the world’s top doctors and scientists working in cardiology and preventive medicine have issued a call to action to tackle the global problem of deaths from non-communicable diseases through healthy lifestyle initiatives. "Stakeholders for healthy lifestyle interventions must share a common and collaborative vision.  This message is central to all the scientific bodies that took part in this joint policy statement. Our hope is that this global collaborative effort spurs a new approach." Prof Marco Guazzi, EACPR Board member and paper co-author.
