Angioplasty cost falls up to 18 per cent on stent price cap

Angioplasty cost at corporate hospital chains came down by 8-12% to ₹2.05 lakh-2.20 lakh from ₹2.10 lakh-2.20 lakh, the study showed.

Conclusions: Our study showed that using a single catheter to perform both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures has a higher success rate, lower spasm incidence, and fewer complications than reported in literature. PMID: 31702741 [PubMed - in process]

Historically, the treatment of iliac artery occlusive disease required a surgical bypass usually consisting of an aortobifemoral bypass or an iliofemoral bypass. With the advent of balloon angioplasty and stenting, these procedures are frequently replaced with endovascular options. However, the treatment of diffuse occlusive disease of the external iliac artery (EIA) using balloon angioplasty and/or stenting does not carry a favorable long-term patency rate. Remote endarterectomy of the EIA using ring dissectors with balloon assistance provides a novel, controlled, safe, and durable treatment of the diseased and/or occluded EIA.

ConclusionSpontaneous reperfusion prior to pPCI in STEMI was associated with a lower risk of adverse clinical events. These exploratory data from a targeted discovery proteomics platform identifies novel proteins across diverse, yet complementary, pathobiological axes that show promise in providing mechanistic insights into spontaneous reperfusion in STEMI.Condensed abstractSpontaneous reperfusion has been established with improved STEMI outcomes, yet its pathobiology is unclear and appears to involve diverse physiological processes. Using a 91-biomarker high-throughput proteomics platform, we studied 683 STEMI patients in...

CONCLUSION: As the management paradigms of tandem occlusions continue to evolve, this technique may improve outcomes by expediting endovascular intervention. Using the stent retriever wire provides a method of expediting the management of the proximal lesion after addressing the more distal intracranial occlusion first.

AbstractThe exact role of papillary muscle infarction (PMI) during the acute phase of acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is not well understood, as existing data on the impact of PMI location is conflicting. We hypothesized that infarction of the posteromedial papillary muscle (PM-PMI) as determined by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging might be associated with an increased incidence of mitral valve regurgitation in the first week after STEMI. 242 patients with first STEMI underwent a late-enhancement (LGE-) cardiac magnetic resonance imaging within a median of 2 (IQR 2 –5) days and echocardiogr...

OBJECTIVES: To explore the clinical significance and correlation of microRNA-21 (miR-21) and the neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). METHODS: The observation group contained 184 patients, while the control group contained 150 patients. The expression of miR-21 in the serum of each group was detected by qRT-PCR. RESULTS: A total of 184 patients and their family members were followed-up for 30 days, among which 35 patients died and 149 patients survived, resulting in a survival rate of 80.97%. According to univariate analysis, there were significant differences in age, cardia...
