THE BEST CARDIOLOGISTS IN GANGAMMA CIRCLE BANGALORE Thrombogenic factors Thrombosis is an important pathological process in coronary artery disease. Factors increasing the tendency to thrombosis include: n smoking n hypertriglyceridaemia n elevated fibrinogen (possibly) n oestrogen-containing contraceptive pills n polycythaemia n increased von Willebrand factor (a marker of endothelial dysfunction). The following factors are associated with reduced thrombotic tendency: n low-dose aspirin n other anti-platelet drugs (e.g. clopidogrel) n fish oils and mono-unsaturated fatty acids. Alcohol intake Alcohol intake has a complex relationship with coronary heart disease, with moderate intake being associated with decreased risk, and nil or heavy intake being associated with increased risk. Moderate intake is defined as 10–30 g per day for men; the optimal level for women is uncertain and alcohol may not have the same protective effect for women. Moderate alcohol intake is thought to be protective by: n increasing HDL levels n having anti-platelet activity n having an anti-oxidant effect—some components of alcoholic drinks, especially red wine and possibly beer. The evidence for the protective effect of alcohol is not strong and non-drinkers should never be urged to take up drinking. Hypertension and cerebrovascular disease increase in a linear fashion with alcohol intake, as do triglyceride levels. Therefore the beneficial effects of alcohol intake on coronary disease occur only at moderate intakes, and for those patients with hypertension, hypertriglyceridaemia or cerebrovascular disease, alcohol intake probably does not confer benefit.
