In a swine model study published in Surgery Dr Frank Sellke, chief of cardiothoracic surgery and research at Rhode Island Hospital found that a high-cholesterol diet reduced blood flow to the heart muscle in animal models with chronic heart disease when given daily naproxen. They also found reduced levels of prostacyclin, a compound that dilates blood vessels and prevents blood clots.
These findings suggest that there may be a stronger risk of negative effects on the heart in patients who have high cholesterol levels and are taking NSAIDs as a form of pain or inflammation relief.
