Abstract Background As advised by the European guidelines on cardiovascular prevention, medication intake is a major component of secondary prevention. The aim of this study is to provide an in-depth overview of the medication intake in stable European coronary heart disease (CHD) patients. Methods Analyses are based on the EUROASPIRE IV survey, including CHD patients (18 to 80 years) who were hospitalized for a coronary event. These patients were interviewed and examined 6 months to 3 years aft...

EUROASPIRE IV (2012–2013) was a large cross-sectional study undertaken at 78 centres from selected geographical areas in 24 European countries. Patients were interviewed and exa...
