Few data exist on long-term outcomes and structural valve degeneration (SVD) in consecutive unselected patients undergoing surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR). The study was published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
According to a study, the researcher examined that in the gut microbiome, a collection of bacteria and other microbes in the gut could be a highly accurate predictor of hospitalizations for patients with cirrhosis. The study was published in the journal JCI Insight.
