This second article in the Ferrara prevention series discusses how history has shaped the city to focus on the prevention of cardiovascular disease  In the previous article in CardioPulse,1 we examined the reasons why cardiologists, who have been so successful in treating cardiovascular (CV) diseases, should also be active in CV prevention by providing models on how prevention programmes could be implemented. Atherosclerotic CV diseases will continue to be the major epidemic in the future and, in the past, epidemics were cured not by drugs alone but also by lifestyle modifications.2 So, it is time to take the lead in prevention!

Abstract

This second article in the Ferrara prevention series discusses how history has shaped the city to focus on the prevention of cardiovascular disease  In the previous article in CardioPulse,1 we examined the reasons why cardiologists, who have been so successful in treating cardiovascular (CV) diseases, should also be active in CV prevention by providing models on how prevention programmes could be implemented. Atherosclerotic CV diseases will continue to be the major epidemic in the future and, in the past, epidemics were cured not by drugs alone but also by lifestyle modifications.2 So, it is time to take the lead in prevention!
