1. Patients who received low-dose colchicine daily had a ~30% lower risk of cardiovascular events compared to those who received placebo. 2. Although the incidence of cardiovascular death was similar between groups, the colchicine group had a numerically greater number of non-cardiovascular deaths as well as all-cause deaths compared to...
1. Findings from this cohort study suggest that diets including processed meat, unprocessed, or poultry have significant associations with incidence of cardiovascular disease while fish do not 2. Processed meats and unprocessed red meats have significant association with all-cause mortality while poultry and fish did not Evidence Rating: 2 (Good) The concept...
1. In this prospective cohort study involving patients who had inpatient noncardiac surgery, those with N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) values of greater than 100 pg/mL were far more likely to suffer myocardial injury or vascular death compared to those with NT-proBNP values of less than 100 pg/mL. 2. Elevated...
1. The risk of major cardiovascular events may be further reduced with the addition of fenofibrate therapy to statin treatment in adults with metabolic syndrome. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Metabolic syndrome is associated with an increased risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease; this risk is partly attributable to accompanying atherogenic dyslipidemia....
1. In this prospective cohort study, higher 24-hour and nighttime blood pressure measurements were significantly associated with greater risks of death and a composite cardiovascular (CV) outcome. 2. 24-hour and nighttime blood pressure may be considered optimal measurements for estimating CV risk however, there was only a very modest improvement...

Patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) are 2-4 times more likely to develop cardiovascular disease, as compared to individuals without a history of cancer. With survival rates increasing significantly over the last 4 decades, this has important implications in patients that are now more susceptible to competing causes of morbidity...
Association of Racial Disparities With Access to Kidney Transplant After the Implementation of the New Kidney Allocation System There are many reasons why a patient may be made inactive on the kidney transplant waiting list, including psychosocial or financial issues or medical comorbidities. This has important implications for a patient’s...
1. In this prospective cohort study, older patients with more optimal cardiovascular (CV) health metrics had a lower rate of developing dementia in a dose-dependent manner. 2. Similarly, the rate of cognitive decline was slower in those with more optimal CV health metrics. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: The AHA...
1. In this cross-sectional study, young adults with a greater number of modifiable cardiovascular (CV) risk factors at recommended levels was associated with higher cerebral vessel density and caliber and higher cerebral blood flow. 2. Greater optimization of these CV risk factors were also associated with decreased white matter hyperintensities. Evidence...
