Inflammation has been implicated in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases. C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of systemic inflammation, predicts the risk of coronary events and stroke. Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with atrial structural changes that may have an inflammatory basis. We tested the hypothesis that CRP is a risk factor for AF.(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetes mellitus (DM) is predictive of increased mortality for patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). To what extent this risk extends below the diabetic threshold (fasting glucose level [FG] <126 mg/dL) is uncertain. METHODS The study objective was to determine the risk associated with FG in a prospectively assembled cohort of 1612(More)
OBJECTIVES This study evaluated the effect of statin therapy on mortality in individuals with significant coronary artery disease (CAD) stratified by age. BACKGROUND Hydroxymethylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase inhibitors (statins) significantly reduce morbidity and mortality in individuals with CAD. Unfortunately, the large statin trials excluded(More)
C-reactive protein (CRP) has been associated with atherosclerotic complications, and we hypothesized that CRP levels might also predict death in non-ischemic patients with left ventricular dysfunction. Two hundred and three patients with non-ischemic left ventricular dysfunction undergoing cardiac catheterization were included and were followed for 2.4 +/-(More)
