Corindus Vascular Robotics (OTC:CVRS) today touted that its CorPath robotic surgical platform was used in a first-in-human telerobotic intervention study in India. The Waltham, Mass.-based company touted that the study was the world’s first percutaneous coronary intervention conducted from a remote location outside of a catheterization lab. In the trial, five patients at India’s Apex Heart Institute underwent an elective PCI procedure from a distance of approximately 20 miles away, Corindus said. The procedures were performed by Apex Heart Institute chair and chief interventional cardiologist Dr. Tejas Pat...

ConclusionStatin therapy demonstrated significantly reduced incidences of MACE, all ‐cause death and CD compared with non‐users after PCI in AMI patients with or without dyslipidemia during 2‐year follow‐up period in the era of new‐generation DES.

ConclusionsPCI was widely performed for dialysis patients with either ACS or non ‐ACS in Japan. Dialysis patients had a greater risk of adverse outcomes than nondialysis patients after PCI.

AbstractObjectivesWe aimed to investigate the determinants of thrombus burden (TB) and the impact of thrombus aspiration (TA) on outcome in young adults with ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).BackgroundThe determinants of TB in young STEMI patients are not fully understood now.MethodsThe 182 young (age ≤ 45 years) STEMI patients, who underwent coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in our hospital from January 2013 to September 2016, were included. Angiographic TB and impact of TA on major adverse cardiac events (MACEs) were evaluated. Median clinical follow‐up perio d was 8...

Authors: Kamona A, Cunningham S, Addison B, Rushworth GF, Call A, Bloe C, Innes A, Bond RR, Peace A, Leslie SJ Abstract INTRODUCTION: People who experience an ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) due to an occluded coronary artery require prompt treatment. Treatments to open a blocked artery are called reperfusion therapies (RTs) and can include intravenous pharmacological thrombolysis (TL) or primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) in a cardiac catheterisation laboratory (cath lab). Optimal RT (ORT) with pPCI or TL reduces morbidity and mortality. In remote areas, a number of geographical and organ...

Abstract Ischemic heart disease is a leading cause of death in Europe. At the same time, older patients are at high risk for coronary heart disease and represent an increasing proportion of patients in the catheterization laboratory in the context of an ageing population. The elderly patients are also at higher bleeding risk, and were poorly represented in major randomized trials. Duration of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT), after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) should be modulated in a personalized way taking into account hemorrhagic and ischemic risk factors, using risk scores based on the latest recom...

We describe a case where an 11-year-old girl with anomalous origin of the LCA from the right coronary cusp presented with near syncope. Surgical unroofing of the intramural segment was done without any post-operative complications and the patient remained asymptomatic for 9  months. She then presented with chest pain, abnormal troponin levels, and ST-T wave changes on EKG. A CT angiogram done revealed short segment narrowing of the LCA near its origin. Cardiac catheterization with coronary angiography demonstrated short segment narrowing of the LCA just distal to orig in. Stenting of the left main coronary artery was ...

The Resolute Onyx stent was developed to improve visibility while reduc...

Heart transplantation (HT) recipients represent a growing patient population. Though mechanisms might differ, coronary artery disease is an important cause of morbidity in this group. Limited data are available on the outcomes of Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in HT in comparison to general population (non-HT). The study population was extracted from the National Readmissions Data 2014 using International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification codes for AMI and HT. The study outcomes included in-hospital all-cause mortality, length of hospital stay (LOS), cardiogenic shock, acute kidney injury...

When assessing time to reperfusion in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients, we refer to time points which may be objectively obtained, such as the Emergency Medical System (EMS) call, the time of the first qualifying electrocardiogram (ECG), the door time or the time of cardiac catheterization laboratory (cath-lab) in which recanalization of the culprit coronary is attained. These time points are currently used to measure the system delay in delivering primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) [1].
