The primary objective of this 6-week, parallel-group, open-label, randomized, multicenter trial was to compare rosuvastatin with atorvastatin, pravastatin, and simvastatin across dose ranges for reduction of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. Secondary objectives included comparing rosuvastatin with comparators for other lipid modifications and(More)
Various organizations and agencies have issued recommendations for the management of dyslipidemia. Although many commonalities exist among them, material differences are present as well. The leadership of the National Lipid Association (NLA) convened an Expert Panel to develop a consensus set of recommendations for patient-centered management of(More)
Despite the potential for reduced morbidity and mortality, aggressive intervention against mild to moderate hypercholesterolemia in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) remains controversial and infrequently practiced. Eligible patients in the 2.5-year Lipoprotein and Coronary Atherosclerosis Study were men and women aged 35 to 75 years with(More)
Severe obesity increases the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome, and moderate acute weight loss with a very low-calorie diet in obese subjects with the metabolic syndrome leads to significant metabolic benefits. Adiponectin has been implicated in both the pathogenesis of obesity-related insulin resistance and increased inflammation. We analyzed the(More)
BACKGROUND Coated polyglactin 910 suture with triclosan was developed recently in order to imbue the parent suture, coated polyglactin 910, with antibacterial activity against the most common organisms that cause surgical site infections (SSI). Because such alterations could alter the physical properties of the suture, this study sought to compare the(More)
There is an increasing trend among physicians to use 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase inhibitors (statins) in combination with other antilipidemic agents. The complementary lipid-altering effects of statins and fibric acid derivatives (fibrates) have led to an increasing use of statin/fibrate combination therapy, particularly for patients who(More)
BACKGROUND--Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) commonly have low HDL cholesterol (HDL-C) and mildly elevated LDL cholesterol (LDL-C), leading to uncertainty as to whether the appropriate goal of therapy should be lowering LDL-C or raising HDL-C. METHODS AND RESULTS--Patients in the Lipoprotein and Coronary Atherosclerosis Study (LCAS) had mildly to(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate a new formulation of fenofibric acid (ABT-335) co-administered with 2 doses of rosuvastatin in patients with mixed dyslipidemia. METHODS In a phase 3, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, active-controlled study, a total of 1445 patients with LDL-C>or=130 mg/dL, TG>or=150 mg/dL, and HDL-C<40 mg/dL (<50 mg/dL for women) were(More)
UNLABELLED Unicompartmental knee replacements (UKR) converted to total knee replacements (TKR) have often been viewed with scepticism because of the perceived difficulty of revising a UKR to a TKR. We present the survivorship analysis of a 77 patient cohort as well as the current results of a 35 patient cohort. There were a total of 77 patients in the(More)
The leadership of the National Lipid Association convened an Expert Panel to develop a consensus set of recommendations for patient-centered management of dyslipidemia in clinical medicine. An Executive Summary of those recommendations was previously published. This document provides support for the recommendations outlined in the Executive Summary. The(More)
