Correspondence: gender and outcome from acute myocardial infarction and secondary stroke

Professor Ivy Shiue; Dr Krasimira Hristova; Professor Jagdish Sharma

Abstract

Dear Sirs, Research on sex difference in mortality after myocardial infarction (MI) since the 1990s has been debated and increased. Several observational studies have shown that younger women, in particular, seemed to have higher mortality rates than men of similar age during the two-year or longer follow-up, although these studies were mainly from the USA.1-3 Recent American studies have also found that, even after full adjustment for potential risk factors, excess risk for in-hospital mortality for women was still noted, particularly among those <50 years old with acute ST-segment elevation MI, leading to 98% (odds ratio [OR] 1.98, 95% c

Optimised beta blocker therapy in heart failure: is there space for additional heart rate control?

Abstract

Introduction Beta-adrenoceptor blocking drugs (beta blockers) are an established prognostic therapy for chronic heart failure (HF).1-4 Of the many proposed mechanisms mediating these favourable effects, that of heart rate (HR) control is gaining interest. The Systolic Heart Failure Treatment with Iƒ Inhibitor Ivabradine Trial (SHIFT) reported that ivabradine significantly reduced a combined end point of cardiovascular death or HF hospitalisations in a relatively high-risk HF population with an elevated resting HR.5 HR control, therefore, appears to be both a modifiable risk factor and a disease modifying variable in patients with impaired l

New data highlight burden of sub-optimal management of angina

BJCardio editorial team

Abstract

Introduction It has been estimated that about two million people in the UK experience the painful and debilitating symptoms of angina – one million men and more than 920,000 women.1 About 17% of men and 8% of women aged 65–74 have been diagnosed with angina at some point in their lives2 and there are about 338,000 new cases of angina each year.1 Not only does angina pose a considerable burden on patients and their carers, it also represents a significant financial burden, costing the National Health Service (NHS) about £700 million each year.3 Alongside the physical trauma of symptoms experienced by patients, angina also detrimentally af
