Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death and disease burden in Australia. However, a recent study found that statin therapy significantly reduced the incidence of coronary and other major vascular events to a similar extent, irrespective of KIF6 genotype (Hopewell et al, 2011). The former approach is more cost-effective than the latter and has the potential to substantially reduce cardiovascular events. Also reduce your intake of damaged omega-6 fats from processed vegetable oils, in order to balance your omega-3 to omega-6 ratio.

The Pravastatin or Atorvastatin Evaluation and Infection-Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction 22 (PROVE IT-TIMI 22) was designed to test noninferiority of a less aggressive cholesterol-lowering regimen. 40 Ultimately, it showed that intensive LDL-C level lowering with atorvastatin 80 mg per day reduced cardiovascular risk more than standard drug therapy with pravastatin 40 mg in a group of high-risk patients hospitalized for acute coronary syndromes Diagnostic Pathology: Thoracic: Published by Amirsys®. Like any muscle, the heart needs a constant supply of oxygen and nutrients, which are carried to it by the blood in the coronary arteries. When the coronary arteries become narrowed or clogged and cannot supply enough blood to the heart, CHD results. Menopausal hormone therapy—also known as hormone replacement therapy—once was prescribed for preventing heart disease in addition to treating menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes Aha Syndrome & Cardiovascular Disease.

Wartime determinants of arteriographically confirmed coronary artery disease in Beirut Development of Aneurysms (Nature Conservancy Book). The authors found few, if any, controlled studies to evaluate risk-reduction strategies for these 4 factors. Hackman and Anand (2003) stated “[w]hether homocysteine is causative in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, is related to other confounding cardiovascular risk factors, or is a marker of existing vascular disease will have to await the completion of a number of large, randomized controlled trials studying the effect of homocysteine-lowering vitamins on cardiovascular end points.” An assessment by the Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement (ICSI, 2003) concluded that “[t]he relevance of studies of [plasma homocysteine] as a risk factor for cardiovascular disease is unclear given the decreasing [plasma homocysteine] levels as a result of mandatory folic acid supplementation Beta-Blockers in the Treatment of Hypertension in the 90's: Experience with Tertatolol: Istanbul, October 1993 (Cardiology).

The prognosis varies for each patient and depends on the underlying health problem. In most cases, treatment of the underlying cause, medication, and lifestyle changes can help the patient lead a healthy life. A congenital heart defect (CHD) is a condition in which there is an abnormality in the structure of the heart, which is present at birth Health-related quality of life in cardiovascular patients.

The two most common procedures are angioplasty (percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty) and bypass surgery. In angioplasty a small balloon is guided on a wire into the blocked artery. It is positioned at the blockage and inflated. This causes the arterial wall to stretch and may also dislodge part of the plaque deposit thus resulting in a widening of the artery Cardiac Intensive Care ((Monograph): Prison Reform in Arkansas).

If something happens to one coronary artery, the percentage of lost myocardium (if any) will be less. There will also be more total heart muscle remaining. If there is serious ischemia of a portion of heart, surviving a major rhythm disturbance may still be a problem, but death from cardiogenic shock in the acute phase is far less likely.
