Highlights •Repeat revascularization is a frequently assessed endpoint in trials of PCI versus CABG but is substantially less important to patients than other outcomes, including death, MI, and stroke. •Repeat revascularization lacks parity between PCI and CABG because of confounding by indication, differences in the availability of revascularization targets, patient preferences, and other reasons. •Although worth reporting, repeat revascularization should not be used as a component of a primary...

Summary Background Hypertension is the leading cause of cardiovascular disease globally. Despite proven benefits, hypertension control is poor. We hypothesised that a comprehensive approach to lowering blood pressure and other risk factors, informed by detailed analysis of local barriers, would be superior to usual care in individuals with poorly controlled or newly diagnosed hypertension. We tested whether a model of care involving non-physician health workers (NPHWs), primary care physicians, ...

BACKGROUND:Socioeconomic status is associated with differences in risk factors for cardiovascular disease incidence and outcomes, including mortality. However, it is unclear whether the associations between cardiovascular disease and common measures of socioeconomic status-wealth and education-differ among high-income, middle-income, and low-income countries, and, if so, why these differences exist. We explored the association between education and household wealth and cardiovascular disease and...
