CONCLUSION: In real-world patients at high risk of bleeding, implantation of the polymer-free metallic stent coated with Biolimus-A9 (Biofreedom®; Biosensors Europe, Morges, Switzerland) followed by 1 -month DAPT showed encouraging results without any stent thrombosis.

High blood pressure: A common diagnosis, that shows hardly any symptoms, but can be deadly. Hardened arteries and blood forced too hard against artery walls can lead to a heart attack or stroke. Fortunately, there are lifestyle improvements that can lower blood pressure and potentially save your life.

Background: It is important to understand the risk of thromboembolism and bleeding in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) receiving direct oral anticoagulants; however, data on risk factors in Japanese patients are limited. Methods: XAPASS (Xarelto Post-Authorization Safety and Effectiveness Study in Japanese Patients with Atrial Fibrillation) is a prospective observational study examining the safety and effectiveness of rivaroxaban in Japanese real-world clinical practice. We investigated risk factors for stroke/noncentral nervous system systemic embolism (non-CNS SE)/myocardial infarction (MI) and major ...

Authors: Karel M, Hechler B, Kuijpers M, Cosemans J Abstract In spite of current treatment strategies, myocardial infarction and stroke are still major causes of death worldwide. These events are triggered by damage of an atherosclerotic plaque, resulting in occlusive thrombus formation. Mouse studies have significantly contributed to our understanding of the mechanisms of atherogenesis and of thrombosis following plaque injury, but the extent to which the mouse serves as an accurate model of human disease is open to discussion. In this review, we provide a detailed overview and comparison of the described mouse mo...

AbstractA genome-wide association study (GWAS) reported that the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs4618210 in thePLCL2 gene is related to myocardial infarction (MI) in the Japanese population, but no study has examined the correlation ofPLCL2 with ischemic stroke (IS). The present study was designed to investigate whether the genetic variation inPLCL2 is associated with large artery atherosclerotic (LAA) stroke in a Han Chinese population. Tagging SNPs (tSNPs) of thePLCL2 gene were determined by a fine-mapping strategy and were genotyped by improved multiplex ligation detection reaction (iMLDR) technology in 669 LAA s...

AbstractThere are few reports investigating the relationship between bronchial asthma (BA) and heart failure (HF). We hypothesized BA may have impact on prognosis in patients with HF. Among 323 consecutive outpatients with HF, 191 patients without chronic obstructive pulmonary disease were analyzed. Twenty patients had BA, most of whom (80.0%) had preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF  ≥ 50%). The use of β-blockers was less frequent (55.0% vs 83.0%.p = 0.01), systolic blood pressure (133 ± 22 vs 120 ± 17 mmHg,p = 0...

CONCLUSIONS: In the current study, while ex-smoking status was significantly associated with CVD, current smoking status was not. Female ex-smoking status had a higher adjusted odds ratio for CVD than males compared to non-smoking status. An effect of hidden female smoking was also found on the association between smoking status and CVD in Korean adults. PMID: 31960946 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, there was no increased risk of adverse outcomes (including muscle aches, liver dysfunction, new onset of diabetes, cancer, and bleeding strokes), even when LDL was lowered to as low as 20 mg/dL. Although statin medications themselves have been linked to side effects, especially at high doses, it appears that extremely low LDL concentrations are not responsible for side effects. In other words, lowering LDL beyond our previous target of 70 mg/dL appears to be not only safe but beneficial, in patients with CVD. The post LDL cholesterol: How low can you (safely) go? appeared first on Harvard Health Blog.
