A biomarker-based model provides a new tool for the prediction of CV death in patients with stable coronary heart disease.
A depression diagnosis is linked to an increased risk of mortality in patients with coronary artery disease.
Individuals with psoriasis have a greater risk for noncalcified coronary plaque burden compared with healthy individuals and patients with hyperlipidemia.
A genetic predisposition to elevated serum calcium levels may increase the risk for coronary artery disease and myocardial infarction.
Coronary heart disease risk may be increased in individuals who consume diets consisting of less healthy plant foods.
Left ventricular mass index predicts mortality and revascularization in patients undergoing invasive coronary angiography.
Coronary computed tomography angiography is an accurate method of assessing angiographic outcomes after bioresorbable vascular scaffold implantation.
Two-hour postload glucose (2h-PG) may be a better predictor of cardiovascular events in patients with coronary artery disease.
Patients with atrial fibrillation but without known coronary artery disease may not be at an increased risk for coronary events, despite elevated high-sensitivity troponin T levels.

Individuals with adverse childhood experience may be at greater risk for major adverse cardiovascular events.
A gluten-free diet is not recommended for individuals without celiac disease to prevent coronary heart disease.
Both iFR and FFR groups experienced similar rates of composite nonfatal myocardial infarction, unplanned revascularization, or all-cause death within 1 year post-procedure.
