Complex coronary bifurcation treatment by a novel stenting technique: Bench test, fluid dynamic study and clinical outcomes

ConclusionsThe revascularization of complex large coronary bifurcation disease using the Nano‐crush technique appeared promising thanks to the favorable fluid dynamic profile, complete coverage of the SD ostium, and very small metal amount at the carina.

Publication date: January 2020Source: JACC: Heart Failure, Volume 8, Issue 1Author(s): Milton PackerAbstractBoth obesity and type 2 diabetes are important risk factors for the development of heart failure with a preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF), and both disorders increase the risk of systemic thromboembolic events. Traditionally, the risk of stroke has been explained by the strong association of these disorders with atrial fibrillation (AF). However, adiposity and diabetes are risk factors for systemic thromboembolism, even in the absence of AF, because both can lead to the development of an inflammatory and fibrotic a...

Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is characterized by chronic thrombi in the pulmonary arteries, causing pulmonary hypertension and right heart failure. Early and accurate diagnosis are essential for successful treatment but are often difficult because clinical signs and symptoms can be nonspecific and risk factors, such as history of venous thromboembolism, may not always be present. Here, we report a case involving a 76-year-old woman who demonstrated paradoxical cerebral embolism as the initial manifestation of CTEPH.

In this study, we aimed to elucidate intrinsic factors affecting efficacy of apixaban by conducting population pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic analysis using data from 81 Japanese AF patients. The intrinsic FXa activity was determined to assess the pharmacodynamic effect of apixaban. The pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profiles were described based on a one-compartment model with first-order absorption and a maximum inhibitory model, respectively. Pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic analysis was conducted using a nonlinear mixed effect modeling program. The population pharmacokinetic parameters of apixaban were fix...

This study sought to investigate what could be learned from how these men have fared. The men were born in 1925-1928 and similar health-related data from questionnaires, physical examination, and blood samples are available for all surveys. Survival curves over various variable strata were applied to evaluate the impact of individual risk factors and combinations of risk factors on all-cause deaths. At the end of 2018, 118 (16.0%) of the men had reached 90 years of age. Smoking in 1974 was the strongest single risk factor associated with survival, with observed percentages of men reaching 90 years being 26.3, 25.7, ...

He also had had chemotherapy and radiation for anal cancer. The patient said the pain had started 45 minutes earlier when he was sitting on the toilet.He described the pain as sore in quality and 10/10 on the pain scale. He reported that it had started in his lower back and radiated to his left leg. He said he had had no trauma or weakness to the regio...

Conclusion: Our findings describe the most reported risk factors for preventability of oral anticoagulant-induced bleedings. These factors may be useful for targeting interventions to improve pharmacovigilance activities in our regional territory and to reduce the burden of medication errors and inappropriate prescription. Introduction Oral anticoagulant therapy is widely used for the prevention of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with atrial fibrillation, or for the prevention and treatment of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism (Raj et al., 1994; Monaco et al., 2017). Oral anticoagulants can be di...

Conclusion An occult preexisting atrial fibrillation may lead to unnecessary percutaneous foramen ovale closure in a significant proportion of patients. A 6-month loop-recorder monitoring may improve the patient oriented decision-making.

Publication date: Available online 21 February 2019Source: Clinica Chimica ActaAuthor(s): Gjin NdrepepaAbstractMyeloperoxidase (MPO) is a member of the superfamily of heme peroxidases that is mainly expressed in neutrophils and monocytes. MPO-derived reactive species play a key role in neutrophil antimicrobial activity and human defense against various pathogens primarily by participating in phagocytosis. Elevated MPO levels in circulation are associated with inflammation and increased oxidative stress. Multiple lines of evidence suggest an association between MPO and cardiovascular disease (CVD) including coronary artery ...
