Though you guys might like this!

The study ultimately included 418 men (median age 53.8 years) exposed to TRT and 283 matched controls (median age 54.9 years; P =.02). At baseline, the prevalence of established cardiovascular disease was 9.8% vs 12.7%, respectively (P =.23). The treatment group was followed for a median of 3.8 years compared with 3.4 years for the control group.

The event composite outcome in the treatment group was 3.3% compared with 6.4% in the control group, with the investigators ultimately observing a reduction in the odds of the combined cardiovascular end point in the treatment group (hazard ratio  0.49; 95% CI, 0.24-0.99; P =.046).

Just going to leave this here for the next time a Dr/Endocrinologist mutters the word stroke risk... ;)

Yeah well Testosterone is responsible for smooth vascular walls so no surprise there. :)
