Prognostic significance of microvascular obstruction by magnetic resonance imaging in patients with acute myocardial infarction.
After infarction, MRI-determined microvascular obstruction predicts more frequent cardiovascular complications, and infarct size determined by MRI also relates directly to long-term prognosis in patients with acute myocardial infarctions.
Assessment of Coronary Artery Disease by Cardiac Computed Tomography: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association Committee on Cardiovascular Imaging and Intervention, Council on…
The utility and limitations of generations of cardiac CT systems are reviewed, with emphasis on CT measurement of CAD and coronary artery calcified plaque (CACP) and noncalcified plaque.
Cardiovascular disease outcomes during 6.8 years of hormone therapy: Heart and Estrogen/progestin Replacement Study follow-up (HERS II).
Lower rates of CHD events among women in the hormone group in the final years of HERS did not persist during additional years of follow-up, and hormone therapy did not reduce risk of cardiovascular events in women with CHD.
Interpretation of the evidence for the efficacy and safety of statin therapy
Non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level as a predictor of cardiovascular disease mortality.
Levels of HDL-C and non-HDL-C at baseline were significant and strong predictors of CVD death in both sexes, and LDL-C level was a somewhat weaker predictor ofCVDdeath in both.
Diagnostic and prognostic value of absence of coronary artery calcification.
Perceived racial/ethnic discrimination, smoking and alcohol consumption in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA).
Exercise Training for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: Impact on Cardiovascular Risk A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association
The increasing prevalence of overweight and obesity has led to an unprecedented epidemic of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and is likely to be followed by an epidemic of patients with complications of T2DM.
Dyslipidemia Prevalence, Treatment, and Control in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA): Gender, Ethnicity, and Coronary Artery Calcium
Control of dyslipidemia was achieved less commonly in the CVD high- and intermediate-risk groups than in the low-risk group, and ethnic disparities persisted despite adjustment for risk factors, socioeconomic characteristics, and healthcare access variables.
