A machine learning model trained to identify patients with familial hypercholesterolemia using large deidentified healthcare encounter data was found to be successful.
Patients with COVID-19 and comorbidities who present with elevated levels of inflammatory markers and D-dimer may have an increased risk for large vessel peripheral arterial occlusion.
Combined hyperlipidemia was found to be similar genetically to isolated hypertriglyceridemia.
In this phase 2 trial, patients with hypercholesterolemia and clinical atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease were recruited from 85 sites across 20 countries.
Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus at risk for heart failure treated with metformin may have reduced deterioration of LV filling pressures and myocardial relaxation.
Poor cardiovascular outcomes are more likely in patients with elevated remnant cholesterol or triglycerides.
The lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) population has a lower prevalence of statin use for primary prevention of cardiovascular disease.
