This study proposes a multi-center RCT in order to compare outcomes of warmer hypothermic strategies during aortic hemiarch surgery on a composite endpoint of neurologic and acute kidney injury (AKI).Methods/designThis is a prospective multi-center, single-blind two-arm RCT comparing mild (32  °C) versus moderate (26 °C) hypothermic cardiac arrest in patients (n = 282) undergoing hemiarch surgery with antegrade cerebral perfusion (ACP). The primary endpoint is a composite of neurological injury (incidence of transient ischemic attack and/or stroke) and Kidney Disease Improving Global Out...

Platelet expression of Fc γRIIa was quantified after myocardial infarction (MI) and we found that patients with high platelet FcγRIIa expression (>11,000/platelet) had a 4-fold greater risk of subsequent MI, stroke, and death. This analysis of the original cohort of 197 patients was designed to determine whether platelet expression of Fc γRIIa could be used in combination with clinical risk scores (GRACE [Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events] and DAPT [Dual Antiplatelet Therapy]) to refine cardiovascular risk assessment.

CONCLUSIONS: The validity of self-reported disease was lower than expected, especially in those who reported having been diagnosed with MI. Proper consideration is needed when using these self-reported data in further studies. PMID: 31795614 [PubMed - in process]

oly Z Abstract Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) encompasses a wide spectrum of disease manifestations that may prevail in the form of venous or arterial thrombosis or lead to pregnancy complications in the presence of persisting antiphospholipid (aPL) antibodies. Unlike in the case of congenital thrombophilias where venous thromboses are more likely to occur as compared to arterial events, aPL antibodies may cause thrombosis in both types of vascular system, often including the coronary or cerebral arteries leading to myocardial infarction (MI) or stroke. In this review we summarize the complex pathomechanisms lead...

CONCLUSIONS: Health-promotion interventions in the community pharmacy context probably improve pharmacy workers' behaviour and probably have a slight beneficial effect on health-related behaviour, intermediate clinical outcomes, and quality of life for pharmacy users. Such interventions are likely to be cost-effective and the effects are seen across a range of clinical conditions and health-related behaviours. Nevertheless the magnitude of the effects varies between conditions, and more effective interventions might be developed if greater consideration were given to the theoretical basis of the intervention and mechanisms...

Publication date: Available online 5 December 2019Source: Journal of Cardiology CasesAuthor(s): Diego Della Riva, Matteo Bruno, Nevio TaglieriAbstractLarge clinical trials and meta-analyses have shown that thrombus aspiration (TA) in the setting of ST-T segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) does not improve clinical outcome, whilst it may be associated with an increased risk of stroke. Accordingly, in the most recent European Society of Cardiology guidelines the role of routine TA during PPCI has been downgraded to a class III recommendation with level ...

CONCLUSIONS: Despite the greater inherent complexity, procedural and long-term clinical outcomes following PCI of distal LM trifurcations with everolimus-eluting stents in a modest-sized cohort from the EXCEL trial were similar compared with treatment of distal LM bifurcation disease without trifurcations. These findings support PCI as a treatment strategy for selected patients with distal LM trifurcation disease. PMID: 31793882 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Cardioembolic stroke is a major source of mortality and disability worldwide. The authors hypothesized that quantitative characterization of intracardiac blood stasis may be useful to determine cardioembolic risk in order to personalize anticoagulation therapy. The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between image-based metrics of blood stasis in the left ventricle and brain microembolism, a surrogate marker of cardiac embolism, in a controlled animal experimental model of acute myocardial infarction (AMI).
