Stroke following percutaneous coronary intervention: type-specific incidence, outcomes and determinants seen by the British Cardiovascular Intervention Society 2007-12

Conclusions Incident ischaemic stroke complications have increased over time, whilst haemorrhagic stroke complications have decreased, driven through changes in clinical, procedural, drug-treatment, and demographic factors. Both ischaemic and haemorrhagic strokes are rare but devastating complications with high 30-day mortality and in-hospital MACE rates.

Authors: Wang HY, Gao RL, Xu B, Yang YJ, Yin D, Wang Y, Dou KF Abstract The benefits and harms of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) continuation with aspirin and clopidogrel beyond 1 year after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation for high ischemic or bleeding risk patients remain unclear. All consecutive patients undergoing PCI were prospectively included in the Fuwai PCI Registry from January 2013 to December 2013. We evaluated 7521 patients who were at high risk for thrombotic or hemorrhagic complications and were events free at 1 year after the index procedure. &quo...

CONCLUSION: In real-world patients at high risk of bleeding, implantation of the polymer-free metallic stent coated with Biolimus-A9 (Biofreedom®; Biosensors Europe, Morges, Switzerland) followed by 1 -month DAPT showed encouraging results without any stent thrombosis.

We report two cases of patients with AMI complicating ischemic stroke, successfully treated with cangrelor infusion, which was started during PCI and maintained up to 48 h at bridge therapy dosage (0.75 mcg/kg/min). Both patients underwent successful PCI in the acute phase, and neither ischemic nor hemorrhagic complications occurred during in-hospital stay. PMID: 31066332 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract RATIONALE: Postconditioning (PostC) at the time of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) may reduce infarct size and improve myocardial salvage. However, clinical trials have shown inconsistent benefit. OBJECTIVE: We performed the first NHLBI-sponsored trial of PostC in the United States utilizing strict enrollment criteria to optimize the early benefits of PostC and assess its long-term effects on LV function. METHODS AND RESULTS: We randomized 122 STEMI patients to PostC (Four, 30-sec. PTCA inflations / deflations) + PCI(n=65) vs. routi...

Conclusions: In patients who are on OAC with vitamin K antagonist and underwent percutaneous coronary intervention, no significant differences were found in mortality, ischemic, and hemorrhagic complications between the patients treated with TT and DT. Thus, tailored treatment based on individual thromboembolic and bleeding risk might be the most reasonable approach in these patients.

This study sought to investigate the incidence, management, and clinical relevance of atrial fibrillation (AF) during and after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stents (DES) and evaluate outcomes of different antithrombotic strategies. Background Uncertainty exists regarding the optimal antithrombotic strategy in patients with AF who are undergoing PCI with DES. Methods Using a consecutive series of 10,027 patients who underwent DES implantation between 2003 and 2011, we evaluated the overall prevalence and clinical impact of AF. In addition, we compared the efficacy and safety of dual antiplate...

Conclusions:Although the frequency of pericarditis, mural hemorrhage and subsequent myocardial rupture after MI is declining following PCI, clinicians should be mindful of this potential complication in tPA treated patients with recent MI. Further, cardiac wall rupture should be considered in patients who develop acute hypotension and bradycardia following tPA administration. The current literature is limited and insufficient to provide generalizable guidance on managing AIS patients with recent MI.Disclosure: Dr. Neu has nothing to disclose.

Both hemorrhagic and ischemic cerebrovascular events are rare but serious complications after acute myocardial infarction (MI) and coronary angiography / percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The most threatening one is intracranial hemorrhage related to antiplatelet and antithrombotic treatment of acute MI. In up to 10% of patients with acute MI ischemic stroke can result from embolisation of intraventricular or intraatrial thrombi [1]. It may occur within the first 2weeks, but also as early as in the first 24h.
