This large, long-term prospective cohort study evaluates the associations between atrial fibrillation and cancer.
This diagnostic-test study evaluates a 1-hour diagnostic algorithm for diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction in patients presenting to the emergency department with acute chest pain.
This diagnostic-test study examines the performance of high-sensitivity troponin I concentrations measured during evaluation of patients with suspected myocardial infarction at emergency department presentation in a pooled analysis of 5 international cohort studies.
This randomized clinical trial determines whether targeting inflammation using salsalate compared with placebo reduces progression of noncalcified coronary artery plaque in overweight and obese statin-using patients with established, stable coronary heart disease.
This study used data from the PEGASUS-TIMI 54 trial to investigate the reasons and timing of the discontinuation of ticagrelor among stable patients with a history of myocardial infarction.
This observational cohort study evaluates the race-specific associations of atrial fibrillation with stroke, heart failure, coronary heart disease, and all-cause mortality in a community-based cohort.
This study uses data on single-nucleotide polymorphisms from cohort studies to look for genetically based racial differences in the risk for atrial fibrillation.
This study evaluates changes in renal function over time in patients with atrial fibrillation randomized to apixaban vs warfarin treatment in the ARISTOTLE randomized clinical trial.
This cohort study uses Jackson Heart Study data to investigate the association between plasma endothelin-1 levels and pulmonary hypertension and heart failure.
This survey-based study analyzes patients’ and physicians’ beliefs and practices regarding discussions of adherence to cardioprotective medications.
This study examines the effects of antiretroviral therapy (ART) on immune function and arterial inflammation in ART-naive patients with human immunodeficiency virus infection.
This study evaluates ischemia and prior infarct as predictors of outcomes of women with signs and symptoms of ischemia and nonobstructive coronary artery disease.
This study estimates the expected number of new-onset cardiovascular events per decade across the age spectrum beginning at age 45 years.
This study examines the effect of aortic valve replacement on postoperative left ventricular global longitudinal strain in patients with severe aortic stenosis and preserved left ventricular ejection fraction.
This Viewpoint discusses the challenges of using direct oral anticoagulants in patients with atrial fibrillation and chronic kidney disease.
A woman in her 50s was admitted after several months of progressive dyspnea on exertion and severe lower extremity edema. She had undergone aortic valve replacement for aortic stenosis, 2-vessel coronary artery bypass, and permanent pacemaker placement 1 year before presentation. What is your diagnosis?
