Explore the latest in ischemic heart disease, including advances in PCI and in the diagnosis and management of acute coronary syndromes.
This cohort study compares risk of 30-day stroke, death, or myocardial infarction or 1-year ipsilateral stroke among patients with standard surgical risk undergoing transcarotid artery revascularization vs carotid endarterectomy.
This randomized clinical trial compares outcomes of invasive vs conservative strategies in older adults with frailty and non–ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction at 1 year.
This randomized clinical trial compares the efficacy of a treat-to-target low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) strategy of 50 to 70 mg/dL as the goal vs high-intensity statin therapy for the 3-year composite of death, myocardial infarction, stroke, or coronary revascularization in patients with coronary artery disease.
This case report describes a patient in their 60s with shortness of breath who tested positive for COVID-19.
This Medical News article discusses a new study in JAMA Surgery about outcome differences between women and men after the most common surgical treatment for coronary artery disease.
This study evaluates trends in outcomes of women undergoing coronary artery bypass in the US from 2011 to 2020.
This diagnostic study evaluates and compares the diagnostic performance of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) 0/1-hour algorithm for 30-day cardiac death or myocardial infarction among patients with and without known coronary artery disease and determine if the algorithm could achieve the negative predictive value rule-out threshold of 99% or higher.
This Viewpoint discusses whether or not the evidence cited in the 2021 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association/Society for Cardiovascular Angiography & Interventions guidelines for coronary artery revascularization support downgrading coronary artery bypass grafting relative to medical therapy.
This secondary analysis of the DECLARE-TIMI 58 trial evaluates whether N-terminal pro–B-type natriuretic peptide and high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T levels can identify a subset of patients with type 2 diabetes at higher risk and who might benefit more from dapagliflozin with regard to atherosclerotic events.
This case report describes an older adult with a history of hypertension and diabetes with paroxysmal chest pain.
This case report describes a patient in their 50s with sudden-onset chest pain.
This economic evaluation uses cost-minimization analysis to estimate the cost savings of paramedic risk stratification of adult acute chest pain and point-of-care troponin testing.
This genetic association study evaluates the association of protein-truncating variants in APOB and PCSK9 with low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels and coronary heart disease.
This cohort study examines associations between long-term fine particulate air pollution and cardiovascular events using electronic health record and geocoded address data.
This genetic association study uses mendelian randomization to examine factors associated with long-term outcomes of hypertensive disorders in pregnancy.
This cohort study of patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) assesses whether race and social determinants of health are associated with hospital readmission rates within 1 year of discharge.
