Valuable information to discuss with a doctor regarding pain management for sure, but it's important to emphasize the absolute, or real, increase in cardiovascular is very low for most people. This is mentioned in the article, but the title of the piece is a little more dramatic. For example, if your chance of heart attack in a year is 0.5%, then an increase relative risk of 23% means your risk of heart attack becomes 0.6%, or an absolute increase in risk of 0.1%, which may be acceptable to you if you are in a lot of pain. NSAIDs are a valuable substitute for opioid medications after broken bones and surgery, and helps avoid the risks of dependency associated with opioids. In those kinds of cases, NSAIDs (combined with Acetaminophen and other medications) are very valuable to your health and wellbeing.

Just saw this article in the New York Times. Many of my patients choose to have surgery under local anaesthesia or a regional block. People love it. It's safe and effective and reduces or avoids the drowsiness, nausea, and other side effects that can occur with general anaesthesia alone. It's not new but it's popularity is increasing in the United States.
