Psychological factors, such as self-efficacy, are important in understanding the progress and management of coronary heart disease (CHD), and how patients make lifestyle modifications to compensate for the dis...
Several studies aiming to determine the association between iron stores and the coronary heart disease (CHD) have reported conflictive results. None of them has been performed in a Mediterranean region. Our aim is to assess the association between the level of serum ferritin and the incidence of CHD in a Mediterranean region.
Why the prognosis of patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is so much worse than of patients with other manifestations of atherosclerosis, such as coronary heart disease (CHD) or stroke, remains an enigma. Recently, in this very journal, Agnelli et al. provided a systemic meta-analysis and review about morbidity and mortality of PAD patients, and reestablished the value of ABI assessment and the unfavorable prognosis of patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) .

Authors: Mühleck F, Laufs U Abstract Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most frequent cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Lifestyle modifications and drug treatment of cardiovascular risk factors are able to effectively prevent CAD. The basis of prevention is the assessment of the individual cardiovascular risk, e.g. by using a validated risk score. Documented evidence for prevention of CAD is available for the control of hypertension using angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB) and calcium antagonists, for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia using ...
