• myocardial infarction
  • We identified large increases in the estimated national rate of hospitalization for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), a growing burden of prevalent cardiovascular risk factors, persistent delays in admission to hospitals, and significant gaps in the quality of care provided to patients across China.

  • Reduction
  • Prasugrel was approved for use in Europe in February 2009, and in the US in July 2009, for the reduction of thrombotic cardiovascular events (including stent thrombosis) in people with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) who are to be managed with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

  • Mitral stenosis poses a high risk of forming emboli which may travel to the brain and cause stroke. (wikipedia.org)
  • Prasugrel should not be given to patients with active pathological bleeding, such as peptic ulcer or a history of transient ischemic attack or stroke, because of higher risk of stroke (thrombotic stroke and intracranial hemorrhage). (wikipedia.org)
  • The results of the JUPITER trial (2008) suggested rosuvastatin may decrease the relative risk of heart attack and stroke in patients without hyperlipidemia, but with elevated levels of highly sensitive C-reactive protein. (wikipedia.org)
  • levels of triglycerides
  • For people with mildly or moderately high levels of triglycerides lifestyle changes including weight loss and dietary modification are recommended. (wikipedia.org)
  • Medications are recommended in those with high levels of triglycerides that are not corrected with the aforementioned lifestyle modifications, with fibrates being recommended first. (wikipedia.org)
  • efficacious
  • The Veterans Administration Cooperative Study ( 1 ) provided the first definitive evidence that antihypertensive drugs were efficacious in preventing major cardiovascular events. (acpjc.org)
  • females
  • 24 hyperlipidemic females followed diet low in saturated fat for a month, then they were randomly placed into a dietary portfolio low or high in monounsaturated fatty for another month. (wikipedia.org)
  • density
  • The high mineral density is attributed to the depth related pressure and the change in temperature from 20 °C+ at the surface to 8 °C at 600 meters depth generates the movement of this layer. (wikipedia.org)
  • High-density lipoproteins are created when a protein in the bloodstream, Apolipoprotein A1 (apoA1), combines with cholesterol and phospholipids. (wikipedia.org)
  • Reduced blood levels of high-density lipoproteins is sometimes described as hypoalphalipoproteinemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • peripheral
  • Arterial baroreceptors are reset to a higher pressure in hypertensive patients, and this peripheral resetting reverts to normal when arterial pressure is normalized. (wikipedia.org)
  • liver
  • You can also get cholesterol through animal food sources, though these are usually high in saturated and trans fats, which force your liver to make even more cholesterol than it would on its own. (bidmc.org)
