CONCLUSIONS: In patients with kidney failure and nonvalvular atrial fibrillation, treatment with apixaban was not associated with a lower incidence of new stroke, transient ischemic attack, or systemic thromboembolism but was associated with a higher incidence of fatal or intracranial bleeding.

Authors: Lehto HR, Pietilä A, Niiranen TJ, Lommi J, Salomaa V Abstract Aims: To compare diabetic patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) needing revascularization to corresponding non-diabetic patients in terms of revascularization methods, comorbidities and urgency of procedure. We also examined the impact of patient characteristics and comorbidities on the revascularization method.Methods: We identified all diabetic (n = 33,018) and non-diabetic (n = 106,224) patients with first-ever, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) from electr...

Managed Care after Acute Myocardial Infarction (KOS-zawał) reduces major adverse cardiovascular events by 45% in 3-month follow-up - single-center results of Poland's National Health Fund program of comprehensive post-myocardial infarction care. Arch Med Sci. 2020;16(3):551-558 Authors: Wita K, Kułach A, Wita M, Wybraniec MT, Wilkosz K, Polak M, Matla M, Maciejewski Ł, Fluder J, Kalańska-Łukasik B, Skowerski T, Gomułka S, Szydło K Abstract Introduction: Despite progress in medical and interventional treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) resulting in low in-hospital mortality, the post-d...

This study aimed to clarify the diagnostic and prognostic potential of strain rate in patients with suspected stable angina pectoris (SAP). Strain rate by 2-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (2DSTE) has been suggested to be able to diagnose coronary artery disease (CAD) and predict cardiovascular events in various patient groups. Prospectively enrolled patients (n  = 296) with suspected SAP, no previous cardiac disease, and normal left ventricular ejection fraction were examined by 2DSTE, exercise ECG, and coronary angiography. Obstructive CAD was defined as stenosis ≥ 70% in&thin...

Authors: Salášek M, Šlechtová J, Pavelk T Abstract Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia is a rare complication of treatment with both unfractionated heparin (UFH) and low molecular weight heparin (LMWH). Antibodies against the complex heparin-platelet factor 4 are the main cause of pathogenesis, resulting in the activation of thrombocytes, coagulation, endothelium, monocytes, neutrophils and subsequent highly prothrombotic state. The prothrombotic state can result not only in venous but also in arterial thrombosis at different locations (which is manifested apart from venous thromboembolic d...

ConclusionAcute ablation-related complication rates were low and were not significantly associated with catheter technology. Increased risk of complication was attributable to low-volume sites and baseline patient characteristics.

AbstractIntroductionPrevious observation identified both hypotension and arterial aging, indexed as Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV), as significant determinants of cognitive decline in older subjects.AimTo investigate the role of PWV as a determinant of hypotension in older patients.MethodsA cohort of 344 subjects came to our Outpatient Clinic, free of cancer, acute myocardial infarction or stroke, atrial fibrillation, renal, hepatic or cardiac failure, secondary hypertension, or thyroid disease.ResultsHypotension occurred in 49% of participants. SBP levels (OR 0.79, 95% CI 0.67 –0.84, p

Authors: Alqahtani F, Welle GA, Elsisy MF, Kalra A, Alhajji M, Boubas W, Berzingi C, Alkhouli M Abstract The frequency, characteristics and outcomes of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) during exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are unknown. Adult patients hospitalized with a principle diagnosis of acute COPD exacerbation were identified using retrospective analysis of the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) from 2003 to 2016. Patients were stratified into 2-groups with and without a secondary diagnosis of AMI. The study's endpoints were in-hospital morbidity, mortality, and resource utilizat...
