The purpose of this study is to determine if Vitamin D supplementation helps prevent recurrent cardiovascular events, such as heart attack or stroke, in patients who have already experienc...
This study evaluates whether circulating levels of aminoterminal propeptide of type III procollagen (PIIINP) can predict the cardiovascular events in hemodialysis patients.
We enroll continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients with hyperuricemia and randomly divide them into two groups, treated with Febuxostat and placebo respectively. After 3 y...
Deficiency in gonadal hormone has been considered to play a role in ageing related increased incidence of cardiovascular events. But the mechanism has not been fully elucidated. On the oth...
Major sporting events may have adverse cardiovascular effects in subjects with coronary heart disease. We also hypothesized that the adverse cardiovascular effects of sporting events are a...
Visit-to-visit variability in biological measures has been suggested as an independent predictor of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Although low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and high-density ...
We have a large body of evidence showing that hyperglycemia is a cardiovascular risk factor and that its reduction decreases the risk for cardiovascular events. Indeed, epidemiological studies have cl...
In brief, perioperative oral intervention consists of elimination of odontogenic foci and maintenance of oral hygiene in patients undergoing surgery. The importance of oral intervention before, during...
The intermittency of conventional hemodialysis (HD) leads to an increase in cardiovascular events.
Despite its preventability, cardiovascular disease remains a leading cause of morbidity, mortality, and health care costs in the United States. This study describes the burden, in 2016, of nonfatal an...
Biological actions and events that support the functions of the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM.
A specialty concerned with the nursing care of patients suffering from disorders of the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM as well as those identified as at risk for adverse cardiac or vascular events.
A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.
A series of progressive, overlapping events, triggered by exposure of the PLATELETS to subendothelial tissue. These events include shape change, adhesiveness, aggregation, and release reactions. When carried through to completion, these events lead to the formation of a stable hemostatic plug.
A study that uses observations at multiple time points before and after an intervention (the "interruption"), in an attempt to detect whether the intervention has had an effect significantly greater than any underlying trend over time.
