Nitroglycerin has been FDA approved since 2000 and was first sold by Pfizer under the brand name Nitrostat. It is currently FDA approved for the acute relief of an attack or acute prophylaxis of angina pectoris secondary to coronary artery disease. Off-label, non-FDA approved uses include trea...

Resting Heart Rate in Cardiovascular Disease
https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0735109707018232
Journal of the American College of Cardiology;

Dec 11th, 2006 - The importance of resting heart rate (HR) as a prognostic factor and potential therapeutic target is not yet generally accepted. Recent large epidemiologic studies have confirmed earlier studies that showed resting HR to be an independent predictor of cardiovascular and all-cause mortality in men and women with and without diagnosed cardiovascular disease. Clinical trial data suggest that HR re...

When Coronary CTA Is Most Appropriate for Suspected Heart Disease
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/914696

Jun 21st, 2019 - NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - New research helps zero in on which patients with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD) will derive the most benefit from coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA). "Our results indicate that the accuracy of coronary CTA is highest for clinical decision making if probability of coronary disease is between 7% and 67%," lead authors Dr. Robert Haase and Dr Marc ...

Cognitive Decline May Accelerate After Ischemic Events
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/914656

Jun 18th, 2019 - After a diagnosis of myocardial infarction (MI) or angina pectoris, individuals enrolled in the English Longitudinal Study of Aging (ELSA) showed more accelerated cognitive decline than those who remained free of coronary heart disease (CHD). The findings, published in the June 25 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, also showed that the cognitive deterioration occurred n...

Afib Ablation Sans Surgical Backup Said to be OK, But Doubts Linger

May 14th, 2019 - Hospitals performing atrial fibrillation (Afib) ablations without an on-site cardiothoracic surgery department showed no safety disadvantage in a retrospective study, although a practitioner told MedPage Today he remained unpersuaded. Medicare records from 2013-2016 showed that the incidence of cardiac perforation within 30 days was 0.67% and was not commonly followed by cardiothoracic surgery ...

MDedge Family Medicine; Jessica Devitt, MD, Corey Lyon, DO et. al.

Apr 4th, 2019 - EVIDENCE SUMMARY A 2017 meta-analysis of 16 RCTs examined the risk of cardiovascular events in 7540 adult patients taking PPIs for GERD (mean ages 45-55 years). 1 The primary outcome was cardiovascular events—including acute myocardial infarction, myocardial ischemia, angina pectoris, cardiac failure, and coronary artery stenosis—and cardiac disorders.

Dec 22nd, 2015 - Adding ivabradine to standard therapy for stable angina pectoris did not improve self-reported physical limitations, compared with placebo, at 12 months, but seemed to decrease the frequency of angina and help patients feel better about their disease, according to a subgroup analysis of SIGNIFY data. “The robustness of our results is demonstrated by the low rate of missing data and the good int.

Time to Retire Beta-Blockers in Uncomplicated Hypertension?
https://www.medpagetoday.com/cardiology/prevention/54229

Oct 22nd, 2015 - Beta-blockers were one of the first modern medications used for the treatment of blood pressure. Before 1950, treatment options for hypertension were limited. The alphabet soup of medications -- reserpine, pentaquine, hydralazine, and guanethidine -- were notorious for inducing orthostasis, sedation, constipation, impotence, or blurry vision. Then in the 1960s, propranolol and chlorothiazide we...

Cardiology News; Bruce Jancin

Sep 13th, 2015 - LONDON – Patients with stable angina pectoris who are found to have no obstructive coronary artery disease upon diagnostic coronary angiography actually have significantly lower rates of all-cause mortality and acute MI over the next 7 years than the age- and gender-matched general population, according to a large Danish registry study. “This is a novel finding that’s never been reported before.
