A common variant on chromosome 9p21 affects the risk of myocardial infarction.
TLDR
An association between myocardial infarction and a common sequence variant on chromosome 9p21 was associated with the disease with high significance and approximately 21% of individuals in the population are homozygous for this variant, and their estimated risk of suffering myocardious disease is 1.64 times as great as that of noncarriers.

Depression as a Risk Factor for Poor Prognosis Among Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome: Systematic Review and Recommendations A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association
TLDR
Despite the heterogeneity of published studies included in this review, the preponderance of evidence supports the recommendation that the American Heart Association should elevate depression to the status of a risk factor for adverse medical outcomes in patients with acute coronary syndrome.
Readmission after hospitalization for congestive heart failure among Medicare beneficiaries.
TLDR
Readmission after a hospitalization for congestive heart failure is common among Medicare beneficiaries, with almost half of the patients readmitted within 6 months, a striking rate of readmission in a common diagnosis.
Association of perfluorooctanoic acid and perfluorooctane sulfonate with serum lipids among adults living near a chemical plant.
Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) are compounds that do not occur in nature but have been widely used since World War II and persist indefinitely in the environment.
Acute Myocardial Infarction in Women: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association
TLDR
This statement provides a comprehensive review of the current evidence of the clinical presentation, pathophysiology, treatment, and outcomes of women with acute myocardial infarction.
Sequence variants affecting eosinophil numbers associate with asthma and myocardial infarction
TLDR
A genome-wide association scan for sequence variants affecting eosinophil counts in blood of 9,392 Icelanders found that a nonsynonymous SNP at 12q24, in SH2B3, associated significantly with myocardial infarction in six different populations.
Sex-based differences in early mortality after myocardial infarction. National Registry of Myocardial Infarction 2 Participants.
TLDR
After myocardial infarction, younger women, but not older women, have higher rates of death during hospitalization than men of the same age.
