Purpose of review: Focused review highlighting select studies presented at the 2022 American College of Cardiology (ACC) Scientific Sessions.
Recent findings: Included studies assessed the impact of a low-sodium diet on heart failure outcomes (SODIUM-HF); outcomes of pregnant patients with chronic hypertension treated with antihypertensive therapies (CHAP); cardiovascular outcomes in patients with type 2 diabetes and renal impairment treated with sotagliflozin (SCORED); a safety and efficacy study investigating SLN360, a short interfering RNA targeting lipoprotein(a) (APOLLO); a supermarket and web-based intervention targeting nutrition for cardiovascular risk reduction (SuperWIN); a superiority trial comparing myocardial injury following very mild perioperative hypothermia versus aggressive warming after non-cardiac surgery (PROTECT); and 3-year efficacy outcomes of renal denervation on blood pressure reduction from the SPYRAL HTN-ON MED pilot study. Research presented at the 2022 ACC Scientific Sessions underscores the new potential and meaningful impact of cardiovascular disease prevention and management interventions.
