The Evolut Low Risk Trial: Self-expanding TAVR noninferior to surgery in low-risk patients

1. Among patients with severe aortic stenosis at low-risk for surgery, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) with a self-expanding valve was noninferior to surgical...

The PARTNER 3 Trial: TAVR with balloon-expandable valves has favorable post-surgical outcomes among low-risk...

1. This randomized control trial compared post-surgical outcomes between transcatheter aortic-valve replacement (TAVR) with balloon-expandable valves or surgical valve replacement in low- risk surgical...

Direct oral anticoagulants for atrial fibrillation in patients with mitral stenosis

1. In this retrospective observational study, direct oral anticoagulant use for atrial fibrillation in patients with mitral stenosis was linked with decreased mortality and...

Aspirin therapy combined with warfarin without clinical indication associated with increased bleeding

1. In this retrospective cohort study conducted in Michigan, aspirin therapy combined with warfarin for patients without a clinical indication was associated with increased...

Quick Take: Antiplatelet Therapy vs Anticoagulation Therapy in Cervical Artery Dissection: The Cervical Artery...

Cervical artery dissection is a common cause of ischemic stroke in young patients. Whether antiplatelet (AP) therapy or anticoagulation (AC) therapy is more effective...

Study does not support use of low-dose aspirin after prostate cancer diagnosis

1. This study evaluated the effects of post-diagnosis low-dose aspirin on prostate cancer-specific mortality and found no overall benefit.2. The study did find a...

Hypertension in adolescence associated with end-stage renal disease

1. In this retrospective cohort study from Israel, hypertension at the age of 16-19 years old was linked with later-life end stage renal disease...

Coronary CT angiography superior to functional stress testing among diabetic patients

Patient-centered transitional care services unlikely to benefit hospitalized heart failure patients

1. In this randomized controlled trial, patient-centered transitional care services did not improve a composite of clinical outcomes in hospitalized heart failure patients.2....

Predictive model may help estimate bleeding risk with aspirin use

1. A model was constructed to predict bleeding risk in patients taking aspirin to prevent cardiovascular disease.2. The predicted data closely match the observed...
