The aim of the study is to investigate the effects of other SDs on the risk of atrial fibrillation development. Methods This study investigated the risk of AF in peopl...
Abstract The prognostic factors and pharmacological effects of the very elderly patients (aged ≥80 years) with acute heart failure (AHF) remain unclear. The study, therefore, investigated the prognostic impacts of the guideline-recommended pharmacological therapy in these patients. A cohort of 1297 very elderly patients [85.1 ± 4.0 years, 69.7% mal...
Whether statins and an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) / angiotensin receptor blockors (ARBs) are associated with reduced risks of infection events is still inconclusive. This study aimed to explore the risk of hospitalization for pneumonia among patients who had received treatment with ACEIs/ARBs and/or statins using a population-...
Background: Although rotational atherectomy (RA) has been an accepted and widely used medical procedure for more than 15 years, the clinical outcomes of RA in high-risk populations remain elusive. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the safety and efficacy of RA for patients with acute or recent myocardial infarction (MI), and...
Purpose: The risk of hemorrhagic stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) is low but the consequences of its occurrence are extremely severe. In this study, we investigated the association of influenza vaccination with the risk of hemorrhagic stroke to develop an efficient strategy for reducing this risk in patients with AF. Methods: In...
