Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of mortality worldwide, and its prevalence is increasing worldwide. Statins are the mainstay of treatment but do not address all aspects of CVD risk. Other lipid-lowering therapies are available but are less effective than statins. New therapies to lower low-density-lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) by as much as statins, to reduce triglycerides (TGs), and to modify the metabolism of high-density lipoproteins (HDLs) are in development.

Anticoagulation is the most-important intervention to prevent stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Despite a lower point prevalence of AF in Asian communities and Asian countries than in other populations, individuals of Asian ethnicity are at a disproportionately high risk of stroke and have greater consequent mortality. Warfarin and other vitamin K antagonists are conventionally used for anticoagulation, and demonstrably reduce the risk of stroke and all-cause mortality in patients with AF. The use of warfarin in Asian countries is suboptimal, primarily owing to the universal challenge of achieving controlled anticoagulation with an unpredictable drug as well as concerns about the particularly high-risk of haemorrhage in Asian patients...

OBJECTIVE: Surgical correction of congenital aortic coarctation can lead to a number of important problems including late pseudoaneurysm formation. Redo surgery has a significant risk. Endovascular stent graft repair is increasingly used but there are limited data regarding this indication. We describe the experience of two UK congenital referral centres. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of patients treated with endovascular aortic stent grafting for late pseudoaneurysms...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects around 10-13% of the general population, with only a small proportion in end stage renal disease (ESRD), either on dialysis or awaiting renal transplantation. It is well documented that CKD patients have an extremely high risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD) compared with the general population, so much so that in the early stages of CKD patients are more likely to develop CVD than they are to progress to ESRD. Various pathophysiological pathways and explanations have been advanced and suggested to account for this, including endothelial dysfunction, dyslipidaemia, inflammation, left ventricular hypertrophy and cardiac autonomic dysfunction...

A 58-year-old man presented to the emergency department with sudden onset rapid palpitations and significant presyncope while walking on the flat. The previous day he had undergone DC cardioversion for atrial fibrillation (AF) which had been initially successful. However, 6 h after cardioversion he was aware of intermittently raised but regular heart rates. On arrival at the emergency department (ED) he was well with no haemodynamic compromise. The ECG showed an atrial tachycardia instead of AF. Medications consisted of propafenone 300 mg twice daily, bisoprolol 5 mg at night and warfarin...
