Sex-Related Differences in Short- and Long-Term Outcome among Young and Middle-Aged Patients for ST-Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction Underwent Percutaneous Coronary Intervention.

This study sought to analyze the sex differences in 30-day, 1-year, and long-term net adverse clinical events (NACEs) in Chinese adult patients with STEMI after PCI. Methods: This study retrospectively analyzed 1920 consecutive STEMI patients (age ≤60 years) treated with PCI from January 01, 2006, to December 31, 2012. A propensity score analysis between males and females was performed to adjust for differences in baseline characteristics and comorbidities. The primary endpoint was the incidence of 3-year NACE. Survival curves were constructed with Kaplan-Meier estimates and compared by log-rank tests between the two groups. Multivariate analysis was performed using a Cox proportional hazards model for 3-year NACE. Results: Compared with males, females had higher risk profiles associated with old age, longer prehospital delay at the onset of STEMI, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and chronic kidney disease, and a higher Killip class (≥3), with more multivessel diseases (P

Rats were fed standard or cafeteria (CAF) diets for 12 weeks, and during the final 3 weeks, CAF animals were administered vehicle, Captopril or Hpp11. Systolic blood pressure (SBP) was recorded weekly. Body weight and plasmatic lipid and glucose level...

This current study aimed to reveal the possible underlying anti-diabetic mechanisms of CPP based on transcriptome profiling. Our experimental results demonstrated CPP could protect pancreas islets through decreasing oxidative stress and pro-inflammatory cytokines, and alleviate dyslipidemia, hepatic steatosis and liver inj...

ConclusionsOur results suggest that metformin users are more likely to initiate preventive therapies and engage in other healthy behaviours. Failure to account for these behaviours may introduce healthy user bias into studies evaluating the effects of oral antihyperglycemic therapies.RésuméObjectifsLe biais lié aux utilisateurs sains selon lequel les patients ayant recours aux soins de santé sont plus susceptibles d'entreprendre des traitements préventifs et d'adopter des comportements sains liés au mode de vie est bien connu dans les études observationnelles, particuli&egra...

We present our early real-world experience with the S-IVL device. METHODS: All patients treated with S-IVL between October 2018 and January 2019 during their percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) at our center were included. RESULTS: During this period, a total of 26 patients undergoing PCI were treated with S-IVL prior to stent deployment (69% male; age, 72 ± 8 years). Indications for PCI were acute coronary syndromes (ACS) in 14 patients (54%), stable angina in 11 patients (42%), and PCI before transcatheter aortic valve implantation in 1 patient (4%). Seventy-one percent of the ACS cases undergoing PCI...

Authors: Vanezis AP, Wilson W, Smith W Abstract Chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using the hybrid algorithm has traditionally been performed femorally using 8 Fr sheaths. Antegrade dissection and re-entry (ADR) has facilitated procedures using 6 and 7 Fr guides via the radial artery. Radial artery dysfunction and occlusion is a recognized complication preventing future radial procedures, but is significantly less common with 5 Fr sheaths. Five Fr contralateral radial access (48% left, 52% right) was used in 33 consecutive patients undergoing elective CTO-PCI in a single United ...
