Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute physicians present findings at ACC scientific meeting
Date:3/18/2010

LOS ANGELES Physician scientists from the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute presented new findings on the effectiveness of routine aspirin therapy for preventing heart disease, a drug therapy for atrial fibrillation and the role left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) may play in weight reduction for obese patients with chronic end-stage heart failure who are considered for heart transplantation. These presentations were made at the American College of Cardiology's Scientific Session in Atlanta. Brief highlights from these studies are included below.

In addition to these presentations, Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute researchers will present findings on gender differences, minimally-invasive surgery, treatments for coronary artery disease and more. For a full listing of Cedars-Sinai presenters, please email sally.stewart@cshs.org.

Does Contemporary Trial Evidence Support the Routine Use of Aspirin in Primary Prevention of Heart Disease?

Although current guidelines generally recommend routine use of aspirin for primary prevention of heart disease in men and stroke in women, a meta-analysis of nine trials (104,331 patients) that had evaluated the efficacy of aspirin use in primary prevention of cardiovascular events suggests that aspirin therapy does not result in significant reduction in serious vascular events in either gender. The study indicated that aspirin therapy resulted in a minimal reduction in cardiovascular events, but it also resulted in a modest increase in bleeding risk.

"The results of this study challenge current guidelines regarding aspirin use for cardiovascular disease prevention," said Sanjay Kaul, M.D., director of the Vascular Physiology and Thrombosis Research Laboratory at the Burns and Allen Research Institute at Cedars-Sinai.
