Efficacy and Safety of Dual Antiplatelet Therapy after Coronary Stenting in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease

Conclusions The rates of POCO and coronary thrombotic events were significantly higher in patients with CKD compared with those without CKD, which was not affected by short- or long-term DAPT. Higher bleeding incidence by long-term DAPT was only observed in non-CKD patients but not in CKD patients. Further large scales studies are warranted to confirm our findings.

Abstract Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) can induce normal or aberrant angiogenesis depending on the amount secreted in the microenvironment around each cell. Towards a possible clinical translation, we developed a Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting (FACS)‐based technique to rapidly purify transduced progenitors that homogeneously express a desired specific VEGF level from heterogeneous primary populations. Here, we sought to induce safe and functional angiogenesis in ischaemic myocardium by cell‐based expression of controlled VEGF levels. Human adipose stromal cells (ASC) were transduced with retroviral vec...

CONCLUSIONS: a pharmaceutical approach using a high dose continuous esomeprazole infusion in children after an initial endoscopic hemostasis has a similar efficacy compared to second look endoscopy and bolus esomeprazole administration for the prevention of peptic ulcer rebleeding. Thus, the discomfort of a second endoscopy in children can be avoided and is only recommended for selected high risk cases. PMID: 29465250 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We report a case of CVST in a 42-year-old male admitted with meningococcal meningitis. The patient was managed with antibiotics. Due to altered coagulation parameters observed in fulminant cases of meningococcemia, deployment of anticoagulation therapy, which would otherwise be the treatment of choice for CVST, is a dilemma.

In this study, researchers put some numbers to the correlation, and improve on previous attempts to rule out wealth and other effects as significant contributing causes. A study finds that a Chinese policy is unintentionally causing people in northern China to live 3.1 years less than people in the south, due to air pollution concentrations that are 46 percent higher. These findings imply that every additional 10 micrograms per cubic meter of particulate matter pollution reduces life expectancy by 0.6 years. The elevated mortality is entirely due to an increase in cardiorespiratory deaths, indicating that air poll...

Abstract BackgroundIncreasing numbers of patients receiving new oral anticoagulants (NOACs) are undergoing elective surgery. The extent to which perioperative interruption of NOAC therapy and use of bridging heparin are concordant with best evidence is uncertain. MethodsRetrospective study of consecutive adult patients undergoing elective surgery at a tertiary hospital between January 1st 2014 and June 30th 2015 and were receiving NOACs for at least 3 months prior to surgery. Concordance of perioperative anticoagulation management with hospital guidelines was rated by two independent researchers according to explicit throm...

Conclusions: This study suggests that, in an adult population with NVAF, rivaroxaban-treated patients had fewer ischemic strokes across all patients, including patients with renal impairment. Rivaroxaban-treated patients also had significantly better outcomes for the composite (VTE, MI, or stroke) measure across all groups. Bleeding rates were comparable across all groups.

CONCLUSIONS: Although there was an apparent decrease in relative efficacy to prevent arterial thromboembolism in the upper range of CrCl, the safety and net clinical benefit of HDER compared with warfarin are consistent across the range of renal function.
