Pleurisy - American Family Physician

Pleuritic chest pain is a common presenting symptom and has many causes, which range from life-threatening to benign, self-limited conditions. Pulmonary embolism is the most common potentially life-threatening cause, found in 5 to 20 percent of patients who present to the emergency department with pleuritic pain. Other clinically significant conditions that may cause pleuritic pain include pericarditis, pneumonia, myocardial infarction, and pneumothorax. Patients should be evaluated appropriately for these conditions before an alternative diagnosis is made. History, physical examination, and chest radiography are recommended for all patients with pleuritic chest pain. Electrocardiography is helpful, especially if there is clinical suspicion of myocardial infarction, pulmonary embolism, or pericarditis. When these other significant causes of pleuritic pain have been excluded, the diagnosis of pleurisy can be made. There are numerous causes of pleurisy, with viral pleurisy among the most common. Other etiologies may be evaluated through additional diagnostic testing in selected patients. Treatment of pleurisy typically consists of pain management with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, as well as specific treatments targeted at the underlying cause.

Use of ACEIs, ARBs Tied to Better Outcomes After MI, Even in Kidney Patients

Using angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) is associated with better long-term survival after acute myocardial infarction (AMI), regardless of underlying renal dysfunction, researchers from Sweden report.

Underweight patients have higher risk of death after myocardial infarction, study finds

After acute myocardial infarction (AMI) underweight patients have a higher risk of death than normal weight patients, even after adjustment for comorbidities and measures that assess cachexia and frailty, a US study has found.1

Ticagrelor is no better than aspirin at preventing cardiovascular events after acute stroke or TIA, study finds

Ticagrelor, a direct acting antiplatelet agent, is no more effective than aspirin at preventing recurrent stroke, myocardial infarction, or death in patients who have an ischaemic stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA), a randomised trial has shown.1

Many people receive suboptimal care after myocardial infarction, research shows

Nearly 33 000 deaths could have been avoided in England and Wales from 2003 to 2013 if patients had received better follow-up care after a myocardial infarction, say researchers.1

Predicting cardiovascular disease

Emerging as a leading cause of death in the early 20th century and peaking in incidence in the 1960s, cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains a major global threat despite a progressively reducing incidence and case fatality for myocardial infarction and stroke. Since then, development of preventive interventions (pharmaceutical and lifestyle) led to a plethora of prediction models designed to identify those at risk, summarised in the linked systematic review by Damen and colleagues.1
