Age Alters Diagnostic Performance of Cardiac Troponin

The guideline-recommended thresholds for increased high-sensitivity cardiac troponin I (hs-cTnI), indicating myocardial injury and potential infarction, performed at a similar sensitivity around 80% in people across age groups. More...

Lipid Cutoffs Identified for CVD Risk in Young Adults Without Diabetes

The underlying pathogenesis and progression associated with nearly all cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are predominantly of atherosclerotic origin that leads to the development of coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, venous thromboembolism and, peripheral vascular disease, subsequently causing myocardial infarction (MI), cardiac arrhythmias or stroke.
