Age, hypertension, COPD are risk factors for CV events after bronchiectasis exacerbation

In a new study published in Chest, cardiovascular events occurred in 30% of patients with bronchiectasis after an acute exacerbation.
Several demographic factors and comorbidities were identified as risk factors for developing CV events following a bronchiectasis exacerbation, including age, hypertension, COPD and severity of exacerbation.
“The identification of specific risk factors for CV events and potentially the use of biomarkers such as pro-adrenomedullin may allow us to select patients with bronchiectasis who are most likely to benefit from the treatable traits strategy, preventive
