Abstract

Introduction The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) clinical guideline 95 (CG95) was published in March 2010 and offers guidance to National Health Service (NHS) institutions on the further investigation of possible diagnoses of stable angina, based on pretest probability of coronary artery disease (CAD).1 Some recommendations were controversial, however, including the recommendation that patients with a very high risk of CAD (>90%) could be treated without further routine investigation with invasive coronary angiography. In addition, use of computed tomography (CT) calcium scoring or CT coronary angiography (CTCA) is

British Heart Valve Society update: a change in the NICE guidelines on antibiotic prophylaxis

John B Chambers, Martin H Thornhill, Mark Dayer, David Shanson

Abstract

This change followed approaches to Sir Andrew Dillon by the widow of a patient with a replacement aortic valve who died from infective endocarditis (IE) developing after unprotected dental scaling.
