Investigators analyzed the use of single-measurement high-sensitivity cardiac troponin I to characterize patients at low and high risk for acute myocardial infarction.
Researchers used real-world data in an attempt to predict outcomes of the ongoing CAROLINA trial comparing linagliptin and glimepiride.
Investigators sought to determine whether a monogenic cause substantially increases the risk for premature cardiovascular disease in patients with familial hypercholesterolemia.
Investigators sought to determine whether glucagon-like peptide-1 decreased PCI-associated myocardial infarction during elective PCI.
Investigators assessed the independent relationships between young adult exposure to risk factors and risk for cardiovascular disease later in life, taking into consideration later adult exposures.
A history of mild liver disease is associated with a higher risk for bleeding during anticoagulation therapy but does not change the relative efficacy and safety of edoxaban compared with warfarin in patients with atrial fibrillation.
Findings reinforce the importance of primary prevention of cardiovascular disease in people living with HIV.
Elderly people with coronary artery calcium (CAC) of 0, CAC ≤10, low galectin-3 level, or no carotid plaque have a significantly lower risk for cardiovascular disease, according to results published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. The study included participants from the BioImage study, a cohort of elderly men 55 to 80…
Elevated lipoprotein(a) and corresponding LPA genotypes are also associated with an increased risk for ischemic stroke, although the incremental risk is less pronounced.
