Conclusion: Prehypertension, particularly high-range, is associated with increased risk of total CVDs, CHD, MI, and stroke. Effective control of prehypertension could prevent more than 10% of CVD cases.

This study is based on an analysis of CPGs elsewhere in the world, an extensive literature search, a systematic analysis of multiple randomized control trials, and a CPG management, development, and assessment committee comprised of thirty-three authors-primarily rehabilitation specialists, cardiologists, and thoracic surgeons in 21 university hospitals and 2 general hospitals. Twelve consultants, primarily rehabilitation, sports medicine, and preventive medicine specialists, CPG experts, nurses, physical therapists, clinical nutritionists, and library and information experts participated in the research and development of...

Abstract The role of diagnostic testing in triaging patients with stable ischemic heart disease continues to evolve towards recognizing the benefits of coronary CT angiography (CCTA) over functional testing. The SCOT-HEART (Scottish Computed Tomography of the HEART) trial highlights this paradigm shift finding a significant reduction of death from coronary heart disease or non-fatal myocardial infarction without a significant increased rate of invasive coronary angiography over a 5 year follow-up period when implementing CCTA with standard care vs standard care alone. The better negative predictive value an...

Conclusions: CHD and HDUE are probably two different morbid conditions, only the first one is likely bound to gross atherosclerotic lesions of coronary arteries and linked to blood lipid levels. We reviewed the problem in epidemiological investigations and addressed inflammation as a potential cofactor to differentiate between CHD and HDUE. PMID: 31615121 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractThe predictive role of serum albumin (SA) has been evaluated in primary prevention studies. We want to assess the association of SA with the subsequent risk of cardiovascular events (CVE) in primary and secondary prevention studies. We performed a systematic review and Bayesian meta-regression analysis. Studies were identified by PubMed and EMBASE database using a combination of the following terms and MeSH terms: “serum albumin”, “myocardial infarction, “cardiovascular events”, “percutaneous coronary intervention” and “coronary restenosis”. No time restriction ...

This study aimed to investigate the impact of clinical pharmacist intervention on the prognosis of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in Chinese patients with CHD. Two hundred and forty patients who had ACS were recruited. Participants were randomly assigned to the intervention group (n = 120) or the control group (n = 120). The intervention group received a medication assessment and education by the clinical pharmacist at discharge and telephone follow-ups at 1 week and 1 and 3 months after discharge. The control group received usual care. The primary outcomes of this study were the proportion of patients who had major adverse...

Conclusion: Low- or very-low-certainty evidence suggests that dietary patterns with less red and processed meat intake may result in very small reductions in adverse cardiometabolic and cancer outcomes.
