Internal Medicine - Rheumatology
In brief: Very few
Bextra was removed from the market at the same time as vioxx because of the increased risk for heart attacks in individuals taking these meds over the long term. CHF was rarely seen.
Interestingly, many nsaids still on the market also have increased cardia risk.
