Arrhythmias: Atrial fibrillation in heart failure — time to revise the guidelines?
Luigi Di Biase & Mohammadali Habibi

Published online: 01 March 2018
p199 | doi:10.1038/nrcardio.2018.20

Catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with concomitant AF and heart failure (HF) is associated with significantly lower HF hospitalizations and all-cause mortality compared with medical therapy, according to the CASTLE-AF trial. This trial, along with previous trials such as AATAC, highlights the important role of AF ablation in the management of patients with HF and AF.

Comorbidities: Cardiovascular disease and breast cancer
Melissa Moey & Javid Moslehi

Published online: 13 March 2018
p200 | doi:10.1038/nrcardio.2018.21

Advances in breast cancer therapy mean that more women are surviving cancer but are at increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). In a statement released by the AHA, Mehta and colleagues summarize the intersection between breast cancer and CVD, and highlight the importance of vigilance in preventive measures.

The NLRP3 inflammasome in acute myocardial infarction
Stefano Toldo & Antonio Abbate

Published online: 16 November 2017
p203 | doi:10.1038/nrcardio.2017.161

Ischaemic injury during an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) event is followed by an intense inflammatory response that occurs after reperfusion. The inflammasome is a protein complex involved in the regulation of this inflammatory response. In this Review, Toldo and Abbate summarize evidence supporting the therapeutic value of inflammasome-targeted strategies in the context of AMI.

Article series: Prevention of cardiovascular disease
Effects of stress on the development and progression of cardiovascular disease
Mika Kivimäki & Andrew Steptoe

Published online: 07 December 2017
p215 | doi:10.1038/nrcardio.2017.189

In this Review, Kivimäki and Steptoe assess the current evidence on the association between stress and cardiovascular disease, covering the multiple roles of stress in the development and triggering of disease and as a determinant of prognosis and outcome. In addition, they discuss the clinical and public health importance of major stressors and the implications for prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease.

Epidemiology of cardiovascular disease in young individuals
Charlotte Andersson & Ramachandran S. Vasan

Published online: 12 October 2017
p230 | doi:10.1038/nrcardio.2017.154

In the past 2 decades, an increasing prevalence of risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as obesity, physical inactivity, and diabetes mellitus, has been observed among young adults (aged 18-45 years) living in developed countries. In their Review, Andersson and Vasan discuss the evolving risk factor burden and available epidemiological data on cardiovascular disease in young adults.

Role of titin in cardiomyopathy: from DNA variants to patient stratification
James S. Ware & Stuart A. Cook

Published online: 14 December 2017
p241 | doi:10.1038/nrcardio.2017.190

The most common genetic predisposition to dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is truncating variation in the giant sarcomeric protein, titin. Ware and Cook review the molecular mechanisms of TTN gene variation in the pathogenesis of DCM, strategies for clinical interpretation of genetic variants for diagnosis, and the role of genetic stratification as a predictor of outcome and treatment response.
