    Biological Age and Other AI Tools in Preventive Cardiology

    Guest: Francisco Lopez-Jimenez, M.D., M.B.A. (@CVDprevention)

    Host: Stephen L. Kopecky, M.D. (@DrSteveKopecky)

    Vascular age is impacted by factors that determine the aging of the vascular system — the heart, arteries and veins. These factors might predispose people to develop heart attacks, peripheral vascular disease or strokes.

    Joining us today to discuss efforts to better describe and measure vascular age is Francisco Lopez-Jimenez, M.D., M.B.A., chair of Preventive Cardiology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

    Specific topics discussed:

    • The concept of vascular age explained
    • Use of electrocardiogram (ECG) to determine vascular age
    • Recommendations to reduce or reverse patients' vascular age
    • Use of ECG to identify conditions it was not originally intended to identify
    • Future impact of artificial intelligence in medicine

    Cardiac Involvement in COVID-19

    Guest: Patricia A. Pellikka, M.D. (@pattypellikka)

    Host: Paul A. Friedman, M.D. (@drpaulfriedman)

    Early reports from Wuhan, China, noted that patients with underlying cardiovascular disease had a higher risk of morbidity and mortality if they contracted the COVID-19 virus. More recently, data support that patients with evidence of cardiac disease during their COVID-19 episodes also have higher rates of morbidity and mortality during hospitalization for treatment of COVID-19.

    Joining us today to discuss the cardiac involvement in patients with COVID-19 is Patricia A. Pellikka, M.D., vice chair of Cardiovascular Medicine at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

    Specific topics discussed:

    • Significance of cardiac involvement in patients with COVID-19
    • Diagnosis of cardiac dysfunction in patients with COVID-19
    • Myocarditis and other cardiac injury in patients with COVID-19
    • Implications of MRI-identified myocarditis
    • COVID-19 long-haulers and cardiac evaluation
    • Artificial intelligence in electrocardiogram or echocardiogram

    The Patient with Early Atherosclerotic Disease-What to Do, What Not to Do

    Guest: Francisco Lopez-Jimenez, M.D., M.B.A. (@CVDprevention)

    Host: Stephen L. Kopecky, M.D. (@DrSteveKopecky)

    Many people have a family history of atherosclerotic disease — heart attacks, strokes or blockages in the body's arteries caused by cholesterol plaques. If atherosclerosis occurs at an early age or affects multiple family members, or if the family history includes sudden death, there is cause for concern.

    Joining us today to discuss family history of early atherosclerotic disease and its impact on cardiovascular health is Francisco Lopez-Jimenez, M.D., M.B.A., chair of Preventive Cardiology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

    Specific topics discussed:

    • Concerns generated by a family history of atherosclerosis
    • Genetic markers for atherosclerotic disease
    • Impact of genes vs. lifestyle on the likelihood of atherosclerosis
    • When and how to conduct genetic testing
    • Treatment for peripheral arterial disease and cerebrovascular disease
    • What not to do for patients with atherosclerosis
