Relation of Sudden cardiac arrest with coronary artery disease in young adults
Considering major shifts in coronary artery disease (CAD) epidemiology over the last two decades, with substantial changes in cardiovascular risk factor profile and earlier manifestation, it was hypothesized that CAD was likely the main etiology of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) among young adults at present 

Assessing Right Ventricular Dysfunction in Patients with Reduced and Midrange Ejection Fraction: An Echocardiographic Study on the Biventricular Dysfunction in Heart Failure Patients
An important determinant of symptoms prognosis in patients with Heart Failure (HF) with both preserved (HFpEF) or reduced (HFrEF) ejection fraction (EF) is the right ventricular systolic dysfunction. Limited data is available on biventricular dysfunction in HF with midrange EF (HFmrEF). 

A Long-Term Follow-Up and Propensity Matched Cohort Study on the Impact of Serum Concentration Guided Digoxin Therapy on Mortality
As per the recently published meta-analyses, it is observed that digoxin can increase mortality in patients suffering from heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). However, in the vast majority of the former studies the serum digoxin concentration (sDC) was not controlled and therapy was not serum concentration guided. 

Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials on the Effectiveness of the pharmacist involved multidisciplinary management of heart failure to improve re-admission and mortality rates
Heart Failure (HF) is characterized by, high rates of mortality and morbidity, unacceptably high readmission rates, and impaired quality of life. There is emerging evidence that HF patients who receive pharmacist involved multidisciplinary care have better clinical outcomes 

A Meta-analysis of Three Randomized Controlled Trials On the Impact of Mineralocorticoid Receptor Antagonists on Sudden Cardiac Death in Patients with Heart Failure and Left Ventricular Systolic Dysfunction
Sudden cardiac death (SCD) continues to be an important cause of death in patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD). Use of mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRAs) may help attenuate this risk.
