In addition to established cardiovascular risk factors, clinical research has identified more than 100 other conditions that may be associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease. Table 1 provides an abbreviated list of these new risk factors. Clinicians who care for patients with cardiovascular disease should be aware of new risk factors. Almost 25% of… CONTINUE READING
