Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Cardiology
  • Myocardial infarction

His scientific interests lie mostly in Internal medicine, Cardiology, Myocardial infarction, Heart failure and TIMI. Within one scientific family, Eugene Braunwald focuses on topics pertaining to Surgery under Internal medicine, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Placebo. Eugene Braunwald combines topics linked to Anesthesia with his work on Cardiology.

His Myocardial infarction research focuses on Pravastatin and how it connects with Atorvastatin. The study incorporates disciplines such as Heart disease and Renal function in addition to Heart failure. His TIMI research includes themes of Platelet aggregation inhibitor, Aspirin and Fibrinolytic agent.

His most cited work include:

  • The Effect of Pravastatin on Coronary Events after Myocardial Infarction in Patients with Average Cholesterol Levels (6753 citations)
  • Bariatric Surgery: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis (5538 citations)
  • EFFECT OF CAPTOPRIL ON MORTALITY AND MORBIDITY IN PATIENTS WITH LEFT VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION AFTER MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION. RESULTS OF THE SURVIVAL AND VENTRICULAR ENLARGEMENT TRIAL (5142 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Internal medicine, Cardiology, Myocardial infarction, TIMI and Heart failure are his primary areas of study. His study in Internal medicine is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Anesthesia and Surgery. His Cardiology study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Blood pressure.

His Myocardial infarction study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Coronary artery disease. His TIMI study incorporates themes from Framingham Risk Score, Fibrinolysis, Atrial fibrillation, Hazard ratio and Aspirin. Eugene Braunwald interconnects Diabetes mellitus, Endocrinology and Intensive care medicine in the investigation of issues within Heart failure.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (87.68%)
  • Cardiology (75.73%)
  • Myocardial infarction (39.03%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (87.68%)
  • Cardiology (75.73%)
  • TIMI (27.60%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Eugene Braunwald focuses on Internal medicine, Cardiology, TIMI, Myocardial infarction and Heart failure. Eugene Braunwald conducts interdisciplinary study in the fields of Internal medicine and In patient through his works. The concepts of his Cardiology study are interwoven with issues in Diabetes mellitus, Placebo and Randomized controlled trial, Surgery.

His studies deal with areas such as Anesthesia, Framingham Risk Score, Rivaroxaban, Vorapaxar and Ticagrelor as well as TIMI. His research integrates issues of Aspirin and Clinical endpoint in his study of Myocardial infarction. His studies in Heart failure integrate themes in fields like Valsartan and Intensive care medicine.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Edoxaban versus warfarin in patients with atrial fibrillation (2856 citations)
  • Comparison of the efficacy and safety of new oral anticoagulants with warfarin in patients with atrial fibrillation: a meta-analysis of randomised trials (2576 citations)
  • Saxagliptin and Cardiovascular Outcomes in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (2322 citations)
