  • Mass General physicians answer the question: "What was the most interesting topic presented at this year's Scientific Sessions?"

  • Health care professionals at this year’s American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions discussed late-breaking research, innovative treatment approaches and brand new guidelines. The conversations carried over from the podium and conference halls onto Twitter.

  • By studying a large cohort of patients who had cardiac MRI after myocardial infarction, scientists at Massachusetts General have demonstrated the association of microRNAs with specific features of left ventricular remodeling, suggesting it may someday be possible to pinpoint early biomarkers of heart failure.

  • From machine learning to metabolic disease, the topics discussed and presented by Mass General clinicians and researchers at #2018 foster a dialogue that contributes to the transformation of cardiovascular care in the practice setting and the improvement of heart health for patients.

  • Research in animal models finds that exercise increases the generation of new cardiomyocytes. Enhancing the regenerative capacity of cardiomyocytes may help maintain heart function over time.
