Plant-Based Diets for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention: All Plant Foods Are Not Created Equal
Abstract Purpose of Review Plant-based diets have been widely promoted for cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk reduction. This review discusses the various definitions of plant-based diets and summarizes their associations with CVD risk, specifically distinguishing between healthy and unhealthy plant-based diets. Recent Findings Despite wide variation...

E-cigarettes and Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease: What Clinicians and Researchers Need to Know
Abstract Purpose of Review Electronic cigarettes, commonly known as electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS), e-cigarettes, or vapes, are growing in use and popularity. E-cigarettes are not one distinct type of product. These devices have evolved from the initial "cigarette-alike" designs to larger tank-style devices and most recently, smaller "mod-pods" that can be easily hidden. E-cigarettes can deliver nicotine at levels similar...

Recent Updates on the Use of PCSK9 Inhibitors in Patients with Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease
Abstract Purpose of Review Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) is caused by elevated levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C). Although statins significantly reduce ASCVD risk, there remains a high degree of residual risk in statin-treated patients. Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) inhibition has emerged as a significant therapeutic target for further lowering of LDL-C when used in combination...

Can Lp(a) Lowering Against Background Statin Therapy Really Reduce Cardiovascular Risk?
Abstract Purpose of Review The association between elevated plasma levels of lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)] and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) has been discussed for many years. Recent genetic findings have confirmed that elevated Lp(a) similar to elevated LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C) might be causally related to premature ASCVD. Lp(a) is relatively refractory to lifestyle interventions. The results of studies with statins and...
