    Hellenic Heart Failure Study: Impact of Mediterranean Diet on Recurrent ACS

    Survivors of myocardial infarction (MI) have higher risk for recurrent MI and have an annual death rate six times higher than people of the same age without heart disease.1 A number of clinical trials such as PREDIMED, GREECS, and EPIC have established a role for the Mediterranean diet (Med Diet) in primary prevention of CVD and results have suggested the Med diet may have anti-inflammatory properties. The role of nutrition in secondary prevention of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is rarely investigated. The Hellenic Heart Failure Study2 specifically looked at whether patients with heart failure (HF) would benefit from the Med Diet.

    This short slide show highlights the study and results.
