Routine administration of a fixed combination of perindopril and indapamide to patients with type 2 diabetes resulted in 18\% reduction of cardiovascular death and 14\% reduction of death from any cause in both patients with and without AF.
However, the study also found that if clinicians gave more aggressive treatments to the diabetic AF patients - in this study they treated them with a combination blood pressure lowering drugs, (perindopril and indapamide) - the risk of dying or developing any of these complications was reduced.
In this study, treatment involved a combination of the blood pressure lowering drugs perindopril and indapamide.
Despite the steeply increased odds for cardiovascular problems associated with AF, researchers found that aggressive intervention with blood pressure and cholesterol controlling drugs (perindopril and indapamide) reduced the odds somewhat.
There was very limited power to evaluate the effects of the perindopril-indapamide combination on new-onset AF during follow-up.
Patients were randomized to the study drug -- a fixed-dose combination of 2 mg perindopril and 0.625 mg indapamide (Preterex) -- or placebo for six weeks.
She had a history of hypertension treated with indapamide, but was otherwise well.
The patient was at risk of hyponatraemia in view of her use of indapamide, but her serum electrolytes were normal.
