Several weight-loss diets can simultaneously reduce serum urate concentrations and cardiovascular risk factors, effects that are mediated by excess pounds shed and improved insulin levels, as shown in a study.
A family history of diabetes appears to be unrelated to the risk of incident cardiovascular disease (CVD), reports a recent study. Parental myocardial infarction (MI) or stroke, however, may be linked to CVD onset.
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), compared with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), in the revascularization of left main coronary artery (LMCA) disease may lead to death, myocardial infarction (MI), or stroke in patients with moderate or severe left ventricular (LV) dysfunction, reveals a study.
Patients with severe aortic stenosis who undergo transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), even with baseline impaired estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), are more likely to improve or maintain their chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage rather than make it worse, a study has shown.
The associations of anxiety, depression, and chronic inflammation with aortic pulse wave velocity (aPWV) and systolic blood pressure (SBP) indicate the first evidence of a brain–gut–vascular axis and new potential targets for treatment in patients with Crohn’s disease (CD), reveals a study.
Early initiation of rhythm-control therapy led to a significantly reduced risk of major adverse cardiovascular (CV) outcomes compared with usual care (typically rate control) in patients with newly diagnosed atrial fibrillation (AF) at risk of stroke, reveals the EAST-AFNET 4* trial presented at ESC 2020.
