36-fold increased risk of all-cause mortality

In observational analyses, to examine the association between low plasma concentrations of nonfasting triglycerides and all-cause mortality
, we included 13 957 individuals from the 1976-1978 examination with measurements available (4).
Fish oil supplementation was associated with a significant reduction in deaths from cardiac causes but had no effect on arrhythmias or all-cause mortality
The association between moderate to severe OSA and all-cause mortality
in the Busselton Health Study persisted even in a partly adjusted model that did not control for blood pressure.
In conclusion, this meta-analysis provides evidence that rates of all-cause mortality
and subsequent myocardial infarction are significantly higher in patients with acute myocardial infarction receiving blood transfusion.
The active treatment produced similar relative reductions in all-cause mortality
and cardiovascular mortality in patients with AF and in those without, but the absolute benefit was greater for those with AF because their baseline risk was higher, said the authors, several of whom other than Dr.
After an average follow-up of one year, higher doses of daily aspirin were associated with lower all-cause mortality
, despite encouraging an increased tendency toward bleeding events.
They enrolled 8 762 men aged between 20 and 80 and the main outcome measure was all-cause mortality
during an average follow-up of 18.
The increase in the all-cause mortality
rate per unit increase in HAQ score was approximately 25% greater using the 1-year score rather than the baseline score, Dr.
For both cohorts, a monotonic increase in risk of all-cause mortality
was observed with decreasing educational attainment.
Four outcomes were measured: all-cause mortality
, cardiovascular mortality, cerebrovascular accidents, and combined outcome of cardiovascular death or nonfatal myocardial infarction.
ORLANDO--Optimal blood pressure in patients with asymptomatic mild to moderate aortic stenosis is 140-159 mm Hg for systolic and 70-89 mm Hg for diastolic, according to an analysis of all-cause mortality
in the world's largest data set of such patients with longitudinal follow-up and endpoint evaluation.
Patients who had notably high or notably low sodium intake levels were at an increased risk of both all-cause mortality
and cardiovascular disease, compared with patients who had usual sodium intake levels, a new meta-analysis suggests.
Washington, June 26 ( ANI ): Results of a meta-analysis have revealed that cholesterol-lowering statin drugs may reduce risk of recurrent cardiovascular events in men and women, but do not appear to be associated with reduced all-cause mortality
or stroke in women.
