New ACC/AHA 2019 Guideline on Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease


The guideline is a compilation of the most important studies and guidelines for atherosclerotic CVD (ASCVD) outcomes related to nine topic areas. The focus is primary prevention in adults to reduce the risk of ASCVD (acute coronary syndromes, myocardial infarction, stable or unstable angina, arterial revascularization, stroke/transient ischemic attack, peripheral arterial disease), as well as heart failure and atrial fibrillation. The guideline emphasizes patient-physician shared decisions with a multidisciplinary team-based approach to the implementation of recommended preventive strategies with sensitivities to the social determinants of health that may include specific barriers to care, limited health literacy, financial distress, cultural influences, education level, and other socioeconomic risk factors related to short- and long-term health goals.
