Those who quit smoking after first CV event delay recurrent event and live longer

Literature - July 2, 2019 - Van den Berg MJ et al., - Am J Heart 2019

In the SMART population, smoking cessation after an event resulted in about 5 years longer survival and delay of recurrent events by about 10 years, compared to those who continue to smoke.

EAPC formulates preference for CV risk prediction tool for use in clinical practice

News - June 26, 2019

The European Association of Preventive Cardiology reviewed various online risk prediction algorithms and considers advantages and caveats, and gives guidance on which tool to use for which patient.

CVD risk assessment model helps assess individual preventive treatment benefit

News - June 18, 2019

The LIFE-CVD model can assess 10-year and lifetime CVD risk and life-years gained free from CVD and the effect of interventions in apparently healthy people.

Validated prediction score for incident HF can be used in primary care setting

Literature - June 17, 2019 - Khan SS et al., - J Am Coll Cardiol. 2019

The PCP-HF score provides sex- and race-specific estimates of 10-year risk of incident HF, based on risk factor information readily available in primary care setting.

Benefit of intensive BP lowering in adults with diabetes seems independent of baseline BP

Literature - May 20, 2019 - Rahman F T et al.. - Hypertension. 2019

An analysis of the ADVANCE study shows that the treatment effect of perindopril-indapamide in patients with diabetes is independent of SBP, DBP or 10-year ASCVD risk at baseline.

The mortality risk associated with sedentary behavior can be offset by much physical activity

Literature - May 2, 2019 - Stamatakis E et al., - J Am Coll Cardiol. 2019
Comprehensive joint and stratified analyses on sitting, physical activity and all-cause or CV mortality risk evaluated the effects of replacing sitting with various physical activity patterns on mortality risk.

Signs of oral infections in childhood linked to subclinical carotid atherosclerosis in adulthood

Literature - Apr. 30, 2019 - Pussinen PJ et al. - JAMA Netw Open. 2019

Bleeding on probing, increased probing pocket depth, caries or fillings in childhood were associated with increased IMT 27 years later, independent of cumulative exposure to CV risk factors.

Women with history of frequent whole-blood donation show lower CV morbidity

Literature - Apr. 29, 2019 - Peffer K et al - Heart 2019

In a study that aimed to address the healthy donor effect, women who had frequently donated blood in the first 10 years of their donation career, showed fewer CV events than those less often donating.

Sedentary behaviour shows dose-responsive relationship with CVD in older women

Literature - Feb. 27, 2019 - Bellettiere J et al., - Circulation. 2019

A prospective, accelerometer-based study shows that total sedentary time and the pattern in which it accumulates (long bouts vs interrupted) are positively associated with the risk of CVD in older women.

CV risk associated with poor oral health may be modified with better oral hygiene behaviours

Literature - Feb. 21, 2019 - Park S-Y et al,. - Eur Heart J. 2019

Large population-based study with 10 years follow-up showed that frequent tooth brushing and regular dental visits lower the risk of CV events associated with oral health problems.
