Umstieg auf E-Zigaretten verbessert kardiovaskuläre Gesundheit bei starken Rauchern

Dundee – Zigarettenraucher, die auf nikotinhaltige Verdampfer umsteigen, könnten ihre Gefäßgesundheit verbessern. Zu diesem Ergebnis kommen Forschende der University of Dundee in einer prospektiv, kontrollierten Studie mit 145 Teilnehmern (Journal of the American College of Cardiology 2019; DOI: 10.1016/j.jacc.2019.09.067). Wie lange der Effekt anhält und ob er sich auf das Herzinfarktrisiko auswirkt, bleibt unklar. (aerzteblatt.de, 10.12.2019)

In Deutschland bisher keine bedrohlichen Vergiftungen durch E-Zigaretten bekannt

Berlin – In Deutschland hat es anders als in den USA bislang keine bedrohlichen Vergif­tungen durch E-Zigaretten gegeben. Wie eine Auswertung von Anfragen bei den Giftin­for­mationszentren durch das Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung (BfR) ergab, ging es in den meisten Fällen um das unbeabsichtigte Verschlucken der meist nikotinhaltigen Nachfüll­lösungen, häufig durch Kinder.

Cannabis-Abhängige erleiden nach Operation häufiger Herzinfarkte

Toronto – Die Auswirkungen der Cannabis-Droge auf das Herz-Kreislauf-System sind wenig bekannt und werden deshalb unterschätzt. Eine bevölkerungsbasierte Kohortenstudie in Anesthesiology (2019; doi: 10.1097/ALN.0000000000003067) kommt zu dem Ergebnis, dass starke Cannabis-Konsumenten nach Operationen ein erhöhtes Risiko auf einen Herzinfarkt haben.
