Exposure to androgen-deprivation therapy was associated with a nearly 2-fold increased risk of heart failure among men without pre-existing cardiovascular disease.
Hemodialysis patients had higher rates of infective endocarditis than peritoneal dialysis and kidney transplant patients.
Overall, therapy was received by just 30.9% of those prescribed PCSK9 inhibitors.
Findings in a large study of long-term low-dose aspirin users.
The researchers found that over the study period statin use was associated with an 18% lower risk of all-cause mortality and non-significantly lower risk of CVD events and stroke.
Adherence to beta-blockers may not be as beneficial to patients after myocardial infarction.
The results demonstrated a tendency for a decrease in LDL-C level at 24 weeks in the ANA group, and improvement was mediated through the suppression of apoB-100 synthesis.
Administration of exenatide in patients with type 2 diabetes at a wide range of cardiovascular risk appeared not to cause an increase in their overall cardiovascular risk.
The researchers found that there was no evidence of an independent correlation between impaired cognitive function and antihypertensive use.
No associations were seen between low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels and cognitive changes in an exploratory analysis.
The use of anacetrapib resulted in a lower incidence of major coronary events than the use of placebo.
The researchers found that there was an increase in NOAC use over time, warfarin use did not change, and overall anticoagulant use increased.
Older age, Indian ethnicity, hypertension, chronic kidney disease, creatinine level, glomerular filtration rate, and history of stroke were associated with prevalent retinal emboli in multivariable-adjusted analysis.
Canakinumab at a dose of 150 mg every 3 months led to a significantly lower rate of recurrent cardiovascular events than placebo.
In a study, the risk for heart failure was 81% higher among patients who received androgen deprivation therapy.
High-carb diets were associated with a 28% increased risk of death vs low-carb diets.
Liraglutide-treated patients were 22% less likely than placebo recipients to experience a composite outcome of renal events.
ApoB is a superior marker of cardiovascular disease risk than LDL-C.
The researchers found patients on intensive blood pressure treatment fared as well as those on standard care.
Cardiovascular death, stroke, or myocardial infarction occurred in fewer patients in the rivaroxaban-plus-aspirin group than in the aspirin-alone group.
The addition of V/S ratio to age, eGFR, BNP, antiplatelet agents, and HbA1c significantly improved classification performance for CVD.
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.
