Atherothrombosis is thus the common thread linking heart attack.

Atherothrombosis is thus the common thread linking heart attack, stroke and peripheral arterial disease.The REACH Registry sanofi-aventis and sanofi-aventis and Bristol-Myers Squibb.REACH Registry Baseline Publication:DL. Steg PG, Wilson, on behalf of the REACH Registry Investigators. International spread, recognition and treatment of cardiovascular risk factors in outpatients with atherothrombosis. JAMA 2006; 295:180-9.

Total investigators observed a serious adverse cardiovascular event rate of 13 per cent on one-year follow-up. Strikingly, however, were organs in patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease, clogged arteries in the legs or abdomen at much higher risk, with a one-year MACE rate of 22 %. In addition, there was a gradual increase in risk in those with widespread atherothrombotic disease. In patients with artery with over 5,000 is crucial that we stop atherothrombosis as a disease of a specific medical specialty- – cardiology, neurology, or vascular disease – but we as a ‘global as a ‘global ‘ disease, Steg said.
