People with no signs, symptoms, or history of cardiovascular disease can still be at risk for having a heart attack or stroke.
Cardiovascular events more than tripled 4 days following the last dialysis session.
Among patients rehospitalized for UA or unplanned revascularization, worse one-year angina and quality-of-life outcomes were seen.
High-intensity statins were associated with a significant survival advantage compared with moderate-intensity statins, even among older adults.
Cancer patients diagnosed in their teens had a more than 4-fold higher risk of death from cardiac disease than patients who didn't have cancer.

TMAO, a pro-atherogenic metabolite formed by gut microbes, predicts long-term adverse event risk and possible mortality in patients with PAD.
