Abstract Background Despite widespread use of statins, approximately 40 – 50% of Canadian patients with known cardiovascular disease (CVD) do not achieve LDL-C goal. GOAL is an investigator-initiated study aiming to ascertain the use of second- and third-line therapy and its impact on LDL-C goal achievement in a real-world setting. Methods GOAL enrolled patients with clinical vascular disease or familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) and LDL-C > 2.0 mmol/L despite maximally tolerated statin therapy....

Abstract Background Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is common in people referred for cardiac rehabilitation (CR). However, the associations between PAD diagnosis and CR attendance and mortality remain to be defined. Methods All patients referred to a 12-week exercise-based CR program were included. Associations between PAD diagnosis and starting CR as well as between PAD diagnosis and completing CR were measured using multivariable logistic regression. Associations between CR completion and mo...

IntroductionCardiac Rehabilitation (CR) reduces residual cardiovascular risk among patients who have received coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery. However, many patients do not attend and some are never referred. It is unclear whether automated referral is associated with improved CR completion rates. Objectives and ApproachGeographically inclusive databases were linked to assess the impact of automated referral on rates of referral to and completion of CR post-CABG. Automated referra...

Abstract Background To determine and compare predictors of post-cardiac rehabilitation (CR) cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) improvements in a large cohort of subjects with varying baseline CRF levels completing CR for ischemic heart disease, and to further refine prediction models by baseline CRF. Methods The Alberta Provincial Project for Outcomes Assessment in Coronary Heart Disease (APPROACH) and TotalCardiology TM databases were used retrospectively, to obtain information on 10,732 [1955 (18...

Patients with coronary artery disease experience various barriers which impact their ability to optimally manage their condition. Financial barriers may result in cost related non-adherence to medical therapies and recommendations, impacting patient health outcomes. Patient experiences regarding financial barriers remain poorly understood. Therefore, we used qualitative methods to explore the experience of financial barriers to care among patients with heart disease. We conducted a qualitative d...

Introduction: Improvements in cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) over the course of cardiac rehabilitation (CR) are strongly predictive of survival in coronary artery disease (CAD) patients. However, not all CR participants achieve equal gains in CRF. Our objective was to determine predictors of post-CR CRF in a large cohort of subjects completing CR. Hypothesis: Baseline CRF, in addition to patient factors, will be predictive of CRF immediately following CR completion. Methods: All subjects who co...
