Classics Series, Landmark Trials in Medicine
1. The POISE trial was a randomized controlled trial exploring the effect of perioperative beta-blockers on cardiac death, nonfatal myocardial infarctions, and nonfatal cardiac arrest. 2. Perioperative oral extended-release metoprolol was found to reduce the risk of nonfatal myocardial infarction, while increasing the risk of stroke and mortality when compared...
Image: CC/L. academia 1. Treating patients with captopril after acute MI with asymptomatic LV dysfunction reduces mortality from cardiovascular causes (i.e., atherosclerotic heart disease, progressive heart failure). 2. The captopril group experienced lower rates of hospitalization due to heart failure and recurrent MI. Study Rundown: The SAVE trial was the first to demonstrate...
Image: PD 1. Rates of myocardial infarction, repeat vascularization and a composite of major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events were all significantly decreased with coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) compared to percutaneous coronary intervention at 5 years follow-up. 2. Rates of all-cause mortality and stroke did not differ significantly between...
