Rivaroxaban reduced cardiovascular (CV) events compared to placebo but also increased nonfatal major bleeding in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), a study found.
Multiple studies have shown that patient outcomes from stroke, myocardial infarction, and other events are worse at night, and hospitalists and administrators hope that putting more physicians on the floor will
Alternative antiplatelet agents, alone or as adjunct, more effective than continuing aspirin monotherapy after new ischemic stroke
The study's primary end point was a composite of ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, myocardial infarction, and vascular death at 1 year.
The analysis focused on all-cause death, myocardial infarction (MI), and major bleeding, as well as cardiovascular mortality, any stroke, and recurrent revascularization.
Outpatient follow-up, readmission rates higher for direct-arrival vs. transferred-in MI patients, study finds
Patients who present directly to a hospital with myocardial infarction (MI) may have better outpatient follow-up rates and lower readmission rates than patients with MI who are transferred in, according
Physician-owned, non-physician-owned acute-care hospitals appear to provide similar care, study finds
Measures of patient experience and processes of care, risk-adjusted 30-day mortality, 30-day readmissions, costs, and payments for acute myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, and pneumonia were also similar
Transition-of-care interventions initiated in the hospital can help improve outcomes in adult patients with stroke and myocardial infarction (MI), according to a new study.
Adding functional mobility to the factors generally used to predict readmission risk may improve individual risk assessment for older patients hospitalized with acute myocardial infarction (MI), a study found.
Patients were excluded if they presented with ST-elevation myocardial infarction, acute stroke, trauma, or cardiac arrest or if they were pregnant, admitted from a psychiatric unit, or transferred from another
Patients who have total hip or total knee replacement surgery are at higher risk for myocardial infarction (MI) afterward, according to a new study.
