1. By comparing the baseline blood pressures and BP trends of elderly individuals with or without subcortical or cortical microinfarcts at autopsy, the authors...

Pharmacomechanical thrombolysis does not lower risk of post-thrombotic syndrome: The ATTRACT trial

1. Patients with proximal deep venous thrombosis (DVT) experience similar rates of post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) when treated with pharmacomechanical catheter-directed thrombolysis (PCDT) plus anticoagulation...

High readmission rates after revascularization for peripheral arterial disease

1. Of patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD), 17.6% were readmitted within 30 days after being discharged following peripheral arterial revascularization. 2. After standardizing readmission...

Cluster analysis identifies phenotype groups for atrial fibrillation with unique clinical outcomes
