Low-dose Aspirin Beats High-dose After Cardiac Surgery

giotensin-II-receptor blockers (ARB) after a heart attack.

To determine the actual impact of the increasing use of cardiovascular medicines, the research team used Medicare and pharmacy assistance programs records from 1995 through 2004 to identify nearly 22,000 patients who had been hospitalized due to a heart attack and survived more than 30 days after discharge. These patients were followed from the index date (30 days after discharge) until they died or until the end of the study period.

Of the 21,848 patients in the study, about half (12,142) eventually died during the 74,982 person-years of follow-up. After adjusting for demographics and comorbidities, the post-heart attack mortality rates showed significant decline from 1995 to 2004, corresponding to a three percent reduction in mortality each year. After introducing the therapy variables, the team found strong indications that the improvement in mortality after heart attack may be explained primarily by the increasing use of these drugs.

"Long-term prognosis in elderly patients with MI has improved considerably over time, and this study supports evidence that this can be attributed to the increasing use of cardiovascular medicines after discharge from MI," said Soko Setoguchi, of Brigham and Women's Hospital and lead author of the study. "As the rate of heart risks continues to increase among the general population, treatment regimens that include the use of cardiovascular medicines will have considerable benefits in overall long-term survival rates," said Dr. Setoguchi.
