Clinical and Administrative Data on the Research of Acute Coronary Syndrome in Spain. Minimum Basic Data Set Validity

Conclusions The MBDS can be a useful tool for outcomes research of acute coronary syndrome in Spain. The contrast of DIOCLES and MBDS with medical records could verify their validity.

CONCLUSION: In real-world patients at high risk of bleeding, implantation of the polymer-free metallic stent coated with Biolimus-A9 (Biofreedom®; Biosensors Europe, Morges, Switzerland) followed by 1 -month DAPT showed encouraging results without any stent thrombosis.

We report the case of a 33-year-old woman with no history of coronary risk factors or chest pain who experienced intermittent chest pain at rest for several minutes from 2 PM. At 8 AM the next day, chest pain recurred and persisted for about 1 hour. She was transported to our hospital by ambulance, where electrocardiogram showed ST-elevation in the precordial leads, and blood tests showed elevation of cardiac markers. She was diagnosed with ST-elevation myocardial infarction. Because she was a young woman without any risk factors, coronary spastic angina was suspected. Coronary angiography without intracoronary nitrate adm...

ize M Abstract Pre-clinical studies have indicated that mitoprotective drugs may add cardioprotection beyond rapid revascularization, antiplatelet therapy and risk modification. We review the clinical efficacy of mitoprotective drugs that have progressed to clinical testing comprising cyclosporine A, KAI-9803, MTP131 and TRO 40303. Whereas cyclosporine may reduce infarct size in patients undergoing primary angioplasty as evaluated by release of myocardial ischaemic biomarkers and infarct size imaging, the other drugs were not capable of demonstrating this effect in the clinical setting. The absent effect leaves th...

AbstractThe prognostic value of the geriatric nutritional risk index (GNRI) in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with rotational atherectomy (RA) remains unknown. Therefore, we aimed to clarify whether the GNRI could predict major adverse cardiac events (MACE) in patients undergoing PCI with RA. A total of 206 patients who underwent PCI with RA from January 2009 to December 2017 were retrospectively tracked. The patients were divided into 2 groups based on the GNRI value on admission. MACE comprised all-cause death, target lesion revascularization (TLR), target vessel revascularization (TVR), and...

Cardiac rehabilitation (CR) is a recommended treatment strategy for multiple populations to elicit well-established improvements in functional capacity, quality of life, and long-term outcomes.1 –6 Risk reduction has been shown in both all-cause and cardiovascular mortality with CR participation following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), myocardial infarction (MI), coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, and ventricular assist device implantation.1,7–10 More recently, long -term major adverse cardiac events (MACE) have also been investigated in these populations as a method of identifying high-ris...

CONCLUSIONS: This case review illustrates the wide heterogeneity in antithrombotic pharmacotherapy among AF patients presenting with STEMI> 12 months after PCI. The underlying reason for STEMI is only partly related to disease progression or stent-related events. This finding suggests that multiple mechanisms of recurrence may be advocated, and are not only limited to antithrombotic therapy but may be explained by the natural history of coronary artery disease in remote vessels.
