Grand Rounds – A Comparison of Contemporary Versus Older Studies of Aspirin for Primary Prevention
Event Date & TimeNovember 3, 2021 at 12:30pm - 1:30pm
Currently the USPSTF recommends initiating low-dose aspirin use for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease and colorectal cancer in certain adults aged 50 to 59 years. However, recent aspirin trials have not shown similar benefits for primary prevention as older studies. In this presentation Dr. Shin will compare studies that show benefits and harms of aspirin for primary prevention before and after widespread use of statins and colorectal cancer screening.
- Review older and newer studies on aspirin use for primary prevention.
- Identify current USPSTF guidelines.
- Identify current ACA guidelines.
- Discuss use of both USPSTF and ACA guidelines.
