Real-Life Benefits of Statins for Cardiovascular Prevention in Elderly Subjects: A Population-Based Cohort Study

The benefits of initiating statins in the elderly remains debated. We evaluated the effects of initiating statins in the elderly, according to cardiovascular risk. Methods This population-based cohort study used data of the representative sample of the French health care system database for the 2008-2015 period. New users of statins, aged 75 years and older, […]

On positron emission tomography/computed tomography, 18F-fludeoxyglucose accumulation was seen in bilateral carotid, iliac, femoral, and popliteal arteries, and thoracic aorta with standardized uptake value maximum of 6.94 in right iliac artery. Arrows (A) and arrowheads (B).

Diffuse Vascular FDG Uptake in Late Onset Takayasu Arteritis

A 75-year-old Japanese woman presented to our hospital with intermittent right neck pain and right-sided headache lasting for 3 weeks. Her erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP) level were elevated to 100 mm/h and 2.95 mg/dL, respectively. Whole body positron emission tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT) showed 18F-fludeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake in the bilateral […]

Effect of the SGLT2 inhibitor dapagliflozin on total body weight and systolic blood pressure in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus on metformin. When added to background metformin therapy, dapagliflozin induced early effects on total body weight (A) and systolic blood pressure (B) that were sustained over 4 years of treatment.43 Copyright © 2015 John Wiley & Sons.

Novel and Emerging Therapeutics for Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease

Cardiovascular disease is responsible for 205 deaths per 100,000 persons annually and is the leading cause of death worldwide. The public health burden of cardiovascular disease is expected to continue to grow as the prevalence of many cardiovascular risk factors increases. Several novel classes of glucose-lowering, lipid-lowering, and weight-loss therapeutics have shown mortality benefits in […]

Sustained Socioeconomic Inequalities in Hospital Admissions for Cardiovascular Events Among People with Diabetes in England

This study aimed to determine changes in absolute and relative socioeconomic inequalities in hospital admissions for major cardiovascular causes among patients with diabetes in England. Methods We identified all patients with diabetes aged ≥45 years admitted to the hospital in England between 2004-2005 and 2014-2015 for acute myocardial infarction, stroke, percutaneous coronary intervention, or coronary […]

Coaching Patients Saves Lives and Money

The Coaching On Achieving Cardiovascular Health (COACH) Program has been proven to improve biomedical and lifestyle cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors. The objective of this study was to evaluate the long-term impact of The COACH Program on overall survival, hospital utilization, and costs from the perspective of a private health insurer (payor), in patients with […]

Global mortality rates in males due to cardiovascular disease; originally published jointly by the World Health Organization in collaboration with the World Heart Federation and World Stroke Organization in 2011 as part of the Global Atlas On Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Control; permission granted by World Heart Federation, November 14, 2017 and World Health Organization, November 23, 2017 (Permission access number 243602).

The Deficit of Nutrition Education of Physicians

Globally, death rates from cardiovascular disease are increasing, rising 41% between 1990 and 2013, and are often attributed, at least in part, to poor diet quality. With urbanization, economic development, and mass marketing, global dietary patterns have become more Westernized to include more sugar-sweetened beverages, highly processed foods, animal-based foods, and fewer fruits and vegetables, […]
