Pneumologie. 2021 Oct;75(10):800-818. doi: 10.1055/a-1029-9937. Epub 2021 Oct 18.ABSTRACTPulmonary embolism (PE) is a life-threatening disease and the third most frequent cardiovascular cause of death after stroke and myocardial infarction. The annual incidence is increasing (in Germany from 85 cases per 100000 population in the year 2005 to 109 cases per 100000 population in the year 2015). The individual risk for PE-related complications and death increases with the number of comorbidities and severity of right ventricular dysfunction. Using clinical, laboratory and imaging parameters, patients with PE can be stratified ...

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTColchicine is an old, inexpensive, and relatively safe anti-inflammatory drug traditionally used in gout and over the last 50 years in familial Mediterranean fever. A search of all high-hierarchy studies (randomized controlled trials [RCTs], systematic reviews and meta-analysis of RCTs) over the last 20 years revealed myriad other evidence-based applications. Colchicine seems efficacious in the treatment of acute pericarditis and prevention of recurrences and the prevention of postcardiac injury syndrome and ...

We examined the associations between DSR and subsequent total and cause-specific mortality among 451,390 adults enrolled in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) study (1992 to 2014, median follow-up: 17 years), free of cancer, diabetes, heart attack, or stroke at baseline. Usual dietary intakes were assessed at recruitment with country-specific dietary questionnaires (DQs). DSR of an individual ’s yearly diet was calculated based on the absolute number of unique biological species in each (composite) food and drink. Associations were assessed by fitting multivariable-adjusted Cox pr...

CONCLUSIONS: For the treatment of hypertension, there is moderate certainty evidence that diuretics reduce major cardiovascular events and congestive heart failure more than CCBs. There is low to moderate certainty evidence that CCBs probably reduce major cardiovascular events more than beta-blockers. There is low to moderate certainty evidence that CCBs reduced stroke when compared to angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and reduced myocardial infarction when compared to angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs), but increased congestive heart failure when compared to ACE inhibitors and ARBs. Many of the differences ...

ConclusionThese findings suggest a class effect for favorable lipid changes and a low risk of serious adverse events among pharmacologic agents targeting PCSK9. Although there is compelling evidence that PCSK9-targeting agents reduce the risk of some cardiovascular outcomes, adequately powered studies with longer follow-up may be needed to fully characterize the magnitude of benefits across the cardiovascular spectrum.

AbstractRecent studies have found that some adverse cardiovascular events could also occur in patients with apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (ApHCM), which is different with previous studies suggesting benign nature of this condition. Therefore, the present study aimed to observe the clinical prognosis of ApHCM and to identify the predictors of poor prognosis in clinical, echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR). A total of 126 ApHCM patients with both echocardiography and CMR were identified retrospectively from January 2008 to December 2018. Adverse clinical events were defined as a composite of cardiac de...

We aimed to evaluate the long-term outcomes of patients with diabetes who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), according to the mean hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) level after PCI.METHODS: We evaluated 675 diabetes patients with CAD treated with PCI. We categorized the study population into three groups based on the mean observed HbA1c levels during the follow-up duration, as follows...
