Rivaroxaban versus warfarin in nonvalvular atrial fibrillation.
In patients with atrial fibrillation, rivaroxaban was noninferior to warfarin for the prevention of stroke or systemic embolism and there was no significant between-group difference in the risk of major bleeding, although intracranial and fatal bleeding occurred less frequently in the rivroxaban group.
Evaluating the yield of medical tests.
The treadmill exercise test is shown to provide surprisingly little prognostic information beyond that obtained from basic clinical measurements.
Ezetimibe Added to Statin Therapy after Acute Coronary Syndromes.
When added to statin therapy, ezetimibe resulted in incremental lowering of LDL cholesterol levels and improved cardiovascular outcomes, and lowering LDL cholesterol to levels below previous targets provided additional benefit.
A brief self-administered questionnaire to determine functional capacity (the Duke Activity Status Index).
Valsartan, captopril, or both in myocardial infarction complicated by heart failure, left ventricular dysfunction, or both.
Valsartan is as effective as captopril in patients who are at high risk for cardiovascular events after myocardial infarction and the combination of the two on mortality in this population of patients.
Relation between renal dysfunction and cardiovascular outcomes after myocardial infarction.
Even mild renal disease, as assessed by the estimated GFR, should be considered a major risk factor for cardiovascular complications after a myocardial infarction.

RHC was associated with increased mortality and increased utilization of resources, and these findings justify reconsideration of a randomized controlled trial of RHC and may guide patient selection for such a study.
