American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology release revised guidelines for coronary artery disease

The American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology have released revised guidelines for the treatment of persistent coronary artery disease. The guidelines highlight lifestyle modifications such as a heart-healthy diet, regular exercise, and smoking cessation as the most effective approaches to prevent the illness from deteriorating. Annual risk assessments are recommended by the recommendations to examine variables impacting heart health. Clinicians may offer symptom alleviation therapies based on this, even if they do not lessen the likelihood of occurrences. Coordination of care between general care and cardiology is critical. Patients may benefit from medications such as SGLT-2 inhibitors, GLP-1 agonists, and newer cholesterol medications. For stable individuals, beta blockers are no longer regularly indicated. The guidelines advise using dual antiplatelet medication for shorter periods of time and acknowledge a lack of evidence for dietary supplements.
