bulletOther Items of Interest

New Dataset Available: The Studies of Left Ventricular Dysfunction (SOLVD)
This study was initiated in 1986 primarily to evaluate the effects of enalapril, an ACE inhibitor, on long-term mortality and major morbidity in a group of patients with left ventricular dysfunction. Two large, separate trials were run concurrently as part of SOLVD. In the prevention trial, a significant reduction in the incidence of heart failure and the rate of related hospitalizations was observed for patients in the enalapril arm. A statistically significant reduction in mortality was not observed in the enalapril treatment arm; however, there was a trend toward fewer total deaths and deaths due to cardiovascular causes among the enalapril patients.
