The Role of Novel Cardiorenal Biomarkers in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory for the Detection of Acute Kidney Injury.

This article discusses the biologic and clinical data supporting the development and utility of several promising biomarkers in the management of patients undergoing cardiac catheterization and percutaneous coronary intervention. PMID: 28144017 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: MCS usage in these patients carries a high mortality in the early post-implantation period. However, there is a significant benefit to patients who survive the initial bridging period to recovery or destination therapy. PMID: 30962998 [PubMed]

Publication date: Available online 28 March 2019Source: Journal of the Saudi Heart AssociationAuthor(s): Masood Ayyub Ghori, Abdulmajeed Al Zubaidi, Asim KhwajaAbstractTrans Radial artery Access (TRA) is considered relatively safe approach for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), by virtue of its fewer access related peripheral vascular complications. Central arterial complications are rare. We are presenting a case report wherein Thyrocervical Trunk (TT), a branch of first part of Right Subclavian Artery (RSA) was perforated during intervention through right Radial approach, resulting in deep neck hematoma, compressi...

Authors: Kar S, Teleb M, Albaghdadi A, Ibrahim A, Mukherjee D Abstract OBJECTIVES: We evaluated the efficacy of low-dose (LD) radiation (≤7.5 frames/second [f/s]) compared with standard-dose (SD) radiation (≥10 f/s) in cardiac catheterization (CC) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Patients undergoing CC with LD vs SD radiation have not been previously studied. METHODS: We performed an observational study of 452 consecutive patients (61 ± 12 years) who had coronary angiography or PCI from September 2016 to September 2017. Patients were divided into an LD radiation group (n = 136) consist...

ConclusionsCenter-specific differences in outcomes after OHCA after adjusting for patient-specific factors exist. This variation could partially be explained by in-hospital management differences. Future research should address the contribution of these factors to the differences in outcomes after resuscitation.

CONCLUSIONS: The model results suggest improved intraoperative hypotension control in a hospital with annual volume 10,000 non-cardiac surgical patients is associated with mean cost reductions ranging from $1.2 to $4.6 million per year. Since the magnitude of the RCT mean estimate is similar to the unadjusted observational model, the institutional costs are likely at the upper end of this range.

The Japan Ischemic heart disease Multimodal Prospective data Acquisition for preCision Treatment (J-IMPACT) project aimed to build an clinical data registry system that electronically...

ConclusionsA plausible cause for the trauma was myocardial infarction which led to the car accident and the major trauma in relation to the obviously minor trauma mechanism. With this case report we aim to familiarize clinicians with the mechanism of injury that will assist in the diagnosis of atlanto-occipital dislocation. Furthermore, we seek to emphasize that patients presenting with electrocardiographic signs of myocardial ischemia after high-energy trauma should primarily be transported to a trauma facility in a percutaneous coronary intervention-capable center rather than the catheterization laboratory directly.

Abstract Coronary artery disease is prevalent in different causes of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), especially in individuals presenting with shockable rhythms of ventricular fibrillation/pulseless ventricular tachycardia (VF/pVT). The purpose of this report is to review the known prevalence and potential importance of coronary artery disease in patients with OHCA and to describe the emerging paradigm of treatment with advanced perfusion/reperfusion techniques and their potential benefits on the basis of available evidence. Although randomized clinical trials are planned or ongoing, current scientific evid...

AbstractCoronary artery disease (CAD) is a leading cause of death worldwide, and percutaneous transluminal coronary angiography (PTCA) and/or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI; angioplasty) are commonly used to diagnose and/or treat the obstructed coronaries. Exercise-based rehabilitation is recommended for all CAD patients; however, most guidelines do not specify when exercise training should commence following PTCA and/or PCI. Catheterization can result in arterial dysfunction and acute injury, and given the fact that exercise, particularly at higher intensities, is associated with elevated inflammatory and oxidati...
