08:00 EDT 29th March 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Statin loading in cardiovascular surgery: never too early to treat."

The effects of statin loading before, during or after vascular interventions on cardiovascular and renal outcomes are discussed. Furthermore, the selection of optimal statin type and dose, according to current evidence or guidelines, is considered. The importance of treating statin intolerance and avoiding statin discontinuation is also discussed.

Statin Intolerance.

Statins are critical medications to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease and they are generally very well tolerated. In some instances, however, statin intolerance may limit use of these lifesavin...

Preoperative Statin Use Not Associated with Improved Outcomes After Ascending Aortic Repair (91 / 100).

Statins have potent pleiotropic effects that have been correlated with improved perioperative cardiovascular surgery outcomes. We hypothesize that statins may improve morbidity and mortality after asc...

Treatment gaps and potential cardiovascular risk reduction from expanded statin use in the US and England.

The updated national guidelines for cardiovascular risk assessment and lipid modification in the UK and US expand the indications for statin therapy in primary prevention to adults with moderate risk ...

Preoperative statins are associated with a reduced risk of postoperative delirium following vascular surgery.

Delirium is a common complication of vascular surgery. The protective effect of preoperative statins on delirium after vascular surgery is controversial. The authors hypothesized that preoperative sta...

Statin Eligibility in Primary Prevention: From a Risk-Based Strategy to a Personalized Approach Based on the Predicted Benefit.

Guidelines have recommended statin initiation based on the absolute cardiovascular risk. We tested the hypothesis that a strategy based on the predicted cardiovascular benefit, compared with the risk-...

Evaluation of Statin Mechanism Preventing Cardiovascular Disease by Post-hoc Analysis of Treating to New Targets Study

Epidemiological studies have shown that serum cholesterol level is correlated with Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) risk, and that Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) risk increases with increasing L...

The Effect on EPCs by Statin Loading in "All Comers" With an ACS

Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. There are a number of risk factors for coronary artery disease and all to often patients admitted with an acut...

Statin Neuroprotection and Carotid Endarterectomy

The investigator hypothesizes that pre-operative statin use is neuroprotective at maximal doses. The goals are to determine the safety, feasibility, and efficacy of maximizing statin doses...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A HYDROXYMETHYLGLUTARYL-COA-REDUCTASE INHIBITOR, or statin, that reduces the plasma concentrations of LDL-CHOLESTEROL; APOLIPOPROTEIN B, and TRIGLYCERIDES while increasing HDL-CHOLESTEROL levels in patients with HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA and those at risk for CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES.

Action taken to reduce susceptibility or exposure to health problems and to detect and treat disease in early stages.

A surgical specialty concerned with diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the heart, lungs, and esophagus. Two major types of thoracic surgery are classified as pulmonary and cardiovascular.

A pyrrole and heptanoic acid derivative,HYDROXYMETHYLGLUTARYL-COA REDUCTASE INHIBITOR (statin), and ANTICHOLESTEREMIC AGENT that is used to reduce serum levels of LDL-CHOLESTEROL; APOLIPOPROTEIN B; AND TRIGLYCERIDES and to increase serum levels of HDL-CHOLESTEROL in the treatment of HYPERLIPIDEMIAS and prevention of CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES in patients with multiple risk factors.

Surgery performed on the heart or blood vessels.
