• Safi - You are correct that, given certain circumstances, aspirin has been associated with an increased risk of heart failure in certain patients. Here's a link to the news of the study that was published in November 2021 in the journal ESC Heart Failure, a publication of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). Aspirin has been prescribed to heart patients for years as a preventative therapy for heart disease, but this study opines a possible downside for those patients with at least one predisposing factor for the condition: those factors include smoking, obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

• Is there truly a link between aspirin and getting heart failure? If there is can someone please explain to me how that could happen?
