The safety and efficacy of dual pathway inhibition of Factor Xa and platelets should be explored in other conditions with an increased atherothrombotic risk.
Mavacamten reduces LVOT obstruction and improves exercise capacity in obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
Investigators used Mendelian randomization analysis to determine the amount of lipoprotein(a) reduction needed to match the effect on coronary heart disease outcomes that lowering low-density lipoprotein cholesterol has.
Sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors reduce systolic/diastolic blood pressure in type 2 diabetes in a flat dose-response relationship.
Researchers identified 2 lipid ratios that were useful markers for metabolic syndrome in adolescents with central adiposity.
An HDL apolipoproteomic score was associated with the presence of coronary artery disease, independent of other conventional cardiovascular risk factors.
In patients with atrial fibrillation and a recent acute coronary syndrome or PCI treated with a P2Y12 inhibitor, an antithrombotic regimen that included apixaban, without aspirin, resulted in less bleeding and fewer hospitalizations.
Among patients who presented to the emergency department with recent-onset symptomatic atrial fibrillation, a wait-and-see strategy was noninferior to early cardioversion in obtaining sinus rhythm at 4 weeks after the index visit.
