This trial randomized 900 pts with type 1 or 2 diabetes to screening with coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) or standard care and evaluated death and non-fatal coronary outcomes. The major outcome was a composite of death, MI, and admission for management of unstable angina. The secondary outcome was a composite of CAD-associated death

Aortic stenosis and coronary artery disease: What do we know? What don’t we know? A comprehensive review of the literature with proposed treatment algorithms.
June 30, 2014
The incidence of coronary artery disease among patients with severe aortic stenosis and candidates for TAVI ranges from 40 to 75%. In the absence of randomized trials, the management of these patients remains to be established. In this paper, the authors offer a good overview of the subject and propose an algorithm for treatment.
Growth properties of cardiac stem cells are a novel biomarker of patients' outcome after coronary bypass surgery
June 8, 2014
In this study, the authors identify a number of markers in cardiac stem cells obtained from 38 patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting which appear to predict positive myocardial remodelling at 12 months following surgery

Bauters C, et al. – There are limited data on the prognosis of patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) in modern clinical practice. The mortality rate of patients with stable CAD in modern clinical practice is similar to that of the general population and is mostly due to noncardiovascular causes.
