HDL Cholesterol: What Is Its True Clinical Significance?
Although the cardioprotective effect of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) has been recognized since 1950, research data on the long-term effects of treatments designed to raise serum HDL-C have only begun to emerge in the past two years. The authors explain how HDL-C fits into the pathogenesis of coronary heart disease and lay out a practical approach to the patient whose HDL-C may be too low. Visit Website ]

Association of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids with stability of atherosclerotic plaques: a randomised controlled trial
N-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) from oily fish protect against death from cardiovascular disease. We aimed to assess the hypothesis that incorporation of n-3 and n-6 PUFAs into advanced atherosclerotic plaques increases and decreases plaque stability, respectively.

AHA Endorses Fish Oil Supplements
The AHA's new fish oil guidelines say patients with documented CHD ideally should get their daily fish oil fix from an approximately 3-ounce serving of a fatty fish such as salmon, herring, trout, or sardines. Somewhat leaner fish, such as canned tuna, halibut, and flounder also are fine but must be consumed in larger portions, according to the guidelines that were released in November (Circulation 106[21]:2747-57, 2002).

Optimal Diets for Prevention of Coronary Heart Disease
JAMA Vol. 288 No. 20,November 27, 2002
Substantial evidence indicates that diets using nonhydrogenated unsaturated fats as the predominant form of dietary fat, whole grains as the main form of carbohydrates, an abundance of fruits and vegetables, and adequate omega-3 fatty acids can offer significant protection against CHD. Such diets, together with regular physical activity, avoidance of smoking, and maintenance of a healthy body weight, may prevent the majority of cardiovascular disease in Western populations.

B Vitamins and Restenosis
Elevated plasma homocysteine is an independent risk factor for the development of coronary artery disease (CAD) and has previously been shown to correlate with outcomes in the presence of established CAD

EBCT and evaluation of coronary artery calcium
It is generally accepted that the presence of coronary calcium correlates directly with coronary atherosclerosis. Does the amount, however, as detected by electron-beam CT (EBCT) predict adverse events independently of traditional risk factors such as BP, cholesterol levels, smoking status, plasma glucose level, and age?

Homocysteine-Lowering Therapy After Angioplasty
In this report of clinical outcomes after additional follow-up through 1 year, Schnyder and colleagues found that the risk of major adverse clinical outcomes (death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, and need for repeat revascularization) was significantly lower among patients who had received 6 months of homocysteine-lowering therapy after coronary angioplasty than among patients who had received placebo.
