Highlights in Cardiology

Rho-associated kinase activity is a biomarker for cardiovascular events

As reported in Hypertension, rho-associated kinase activity is an independent predictor of cardiovascular events. The study involved 633 patients undergoing routine health screening examinations with a median follow-up of 42 months. There were 29 cardiovascular-related deaths, 2 myocardial infarctions, 20 revascularizations, 15 strokes, and 17 hospitalizations for heart failure. The HRs for first cardiovascular event, death, stroke, and revascularization were 2.19, 2.57, 2.14, and 2.68, respectively.

AGEs increase cardiovascular risk in T2DM

As reported in Diabetes, elevated advanced glycation end products increase the risk for incident cardiovascular events (HR=1.31) in type 2 diabetics (n=218).

Statin use associated with decreased mortality in HFPEF

Based on a meta-analysis reported in the American Journal of Cardiology, statin use by patients (n=17985) with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF) is associated with a 40% reduction in mortality.
