Rheumatologists should consider a patient with RA's cardiovascular disease (CVD) status before deciding on RA treatments, a researcher of cardiometabolic disorders advised.

  • Microvascular disease and arrhythmias: a renewed focus on the myocardial microvasculature? Arrhythmias, and in particular atrial fibrillation (AF), are one of the greatest healthcare challenges of our time. Hospitalisation due to this condition is exponentially growing, and now outnumbers those for both heart failure and myocardial infarction.
