The six-month cumulative incidence of myocardial infarction was 2.0% and 0.7% in patients with cancer and controls, respectively.
Those who were light or moderate alcohol consumers, compared with lifestyle abstainers, had a reduced risk of all-cause mortality and CVD mortality.
The researchers found that after a median period of 4.4 years, the median change in estimated glomerular filtration rate did not differ significantly between the CPAP and usual-care groups.
Atrial fibrillation risk increases as estimated glomerular filtration rate decreases and albuminuria increases, according to a new meta-analysis.
The researchers found that estimated sodium intake greater than 3.7 g per day correlated with larger left atrial and left ventricular dimensions.
During a mean follow-up of 9.7 years, 40% of patients died; 50% among those with depression vs 38% among those without depression.
Discontinuation of statin therapy between 3 and 6 months after an index ischemic stroke was associated with a higher risk of recurrent stroke within one year after statin discontinuation.
Compared with usual care, HIIT correlated with a 20% reduction in the prevalence of modifiable CVD risk factors.
Continued statin prescriptions after an adverse reaction were associated with a lower incidence of death and cardiovascular events.
Addition of CCTA-detected obstructive coronary artery disease to risk factors ups prediction of MACE.
Participants with CHIP had a four-fold increased risk compared with noncarriers in 2 retrospective case-control cohorts for evaluation of early-onset myocardial infarction.
A healthy diet should focus on healthy foods rich in nutrients that can help reduce disease risk, like poly- and monounsaturated vegetable oils, nuts, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish, and others.
For patients who can't tolerate or afford hypertension medications, the research suggested some herbal alternatives: tiankuijiangya, zhongfujiangya, jiangyabao, and jiangya.
Patients suffering from mental distress experienced higher all-cause cardiovascular deaths.
Hypogonadal testicular cancer survivors had 15 times higher odds of metabolic syndrome than their eugonadal counterparts.
Anemic patients were 41% and 80% more likely to have coronary artery disease and peripheral artery disease than non-anemic patients.
The researchers found that during 13,509 patient-years of follow-up, 3166 patients had 405 first bleeding events.
The researchers found that the primary outcome of first occurrence of an adjudicated major cardiovascular event occurred in 8.5% and 9.3% of patients in the degludec and glargine groups, respectively.
Male sex, filling β-blocker and antiplatelet agent prescriptions, and attending cardiac rehabilitation within 30 days of discharge were factors associated with filling high-intensity statin prescriptions in 2014.
Study findings suggest that the medication may offer renal protection.
The likelihood of dying within 30 days of being admitted for care was 1.5% lower at major teaching facilities compared with non-teaching hospitals.
Treatment with evacetrapib did not result in a lower rate of cardiovascular events than placebo among patients with high-risk vascular disease.
The researchers found no significant difference in coronary heart disease event rates among the groups.
The investigators also found that the risk of cardiovascular disease in obese people rose with the number of metabolic abnormalities.
No significant differences were seen between statin users and non-users in the rates of other adverse events.
Interventions are needed to increase high-intensity statin use and adherence after myocardial infarction.
Reduced glomerular filtration rate ranked similarly to high total cholesterol as a risk factor for disability-adjusted life years.
Baseline nutritional status does not influence the effect of randomized long-term multivitamin use on major CVD events.
The largest numbers of diet-related cardiometabolic deaths were related to high sodium, low nuts/seeds, high processed meats, low seafood omega-3 fats, low vegetables, low fruits, and high SSBs.
An increasing number of midlife vascular risk factors was significantly associated with elevated amyloid SUVR; this association was not significant for late-life risk factors.
