The Burden of Cardiovascular Diseases Among US States, 1990-2016

Abstract Full Text
open access
JAMA Cardiol. 2018;3(5):375-389. doi:10.1001/jamacardio.2018.0385

This study using the Global Burden of Disease methodology quantifies and describes levels and trends of lost health due to cardiovascular disease within the United States from 1990 to 2016 as well as risk factors driving these changes.

Ticagrelor vs Clopidogrel After Fibrinolytic Therapy in Patients With ST-Elevation Myocardial InfarctionA Randomized Clinical Trial

Abstract Full Text
JAMA Cardiol. 2018;3(5):391-399. doi:10.1001/jamacardio.2018.0612

This randomized clinical trial evaluates the short-term safety of ticagrelor when compared with clopidogrel in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction treated with fibrinolytic therapy.

ADCY9 Genetic Variants and Cardiovascular Outcomes With Evacetrapib in Patients With High-Risk Vascular DiseaseA Nested Case-Control Study

Abstract Full Text
JAMA Cardiol. 2018;3(5):401-408. doi:10.1001/jamacardio.2018.0569

This study explores whether the association between an SNP in the ADCY9 gene and a reduction in major adverse cardiovascular events could be replicated for another cholesteryl ester transfer protein inhibitor, evacetrapib, in patients with high-risk vascular disease.

This study aims to develop and validate a deep neural network to detect atrial fibrillation using smartwatch data.

Long-term Thromboembolic Risk in Patients With Postoperative Atrial Fibrillation After Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery and Patients With Nonvalvular Atrial Fibrillation

Abstract Full Text
JAMA Cardiol. 2018;3(5):417-424. doi:10.1001/jamacardio.2018.0405

This cohort study examines long-term risk of thromboembolism in patients with new-onset postoperative atrial fibrillation after first-time isolated coronary artery bypass graft surgery compared with patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation.

Brief Report

Trajectories of Blood Pressure Elevation Preceding Hypertension OnsetAn Analysis of the Framingham Heart Study Original Cohort

Abstract Full Text
JAMA Cardiol. 2018;3(5):427-431. doi:10.1001/jamacardio.2018.0250

This longitudinal cohort study aimed to identify a common threshold level above which blood pressure level rise tends to accelerate in progression toward hypertension.

Viewpoint

Mass Customization for Population Health

Abstract Full Text
JAMA Cardiol. 2018;3(5):363-364. doi:10.1001/jamacardio.2017.5353

This Viewpoint argues that, rather than inventing new medications and procedures, it is best to augment use of existing therapies by fine-tuning health care delivery through the use of data.

Hip Fracture and Palpitations in a 92-Year-Old Woman With Bronchiectasis

Abstract Full Text
JAMA Cardiol. 2018;3(5):439-440. doi:10.1001/jamacardio.2017.3512

A 92-year-old woman with a history of long-term bronchiectasis and atrial flutter presented after a fall with severe pain over the left hip and occasional palpitations. The 12-lead electrocardiogram showed marked right axis deviation with poor R wave progression across the precordial leads V1-V6. What would you do next?
