Five-Year Stroke Rates Lower After PCI Versus CABG

WEDNESDAY, July 18, 2018 -- Stroke rates are lower at 30 days and five years after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) than after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), according to a study published in the July 24 issue of the Journal of the...

CONCLUSIONS: The current evidence suggests that the risk of stroke was significantly reduced in PCI compared to that in CABG. Therefore, PCI is the preferred treatment for patients with a high risk of stroke. Additionally, in short-term follow up, PCI was reported to be safe and effective for UPLM patients compared to CABG. However, CABG caused fewer complications long term. PMID: 30797504 [PubMed - in process]

Objectives There is a paucity of data on the effect of baseline lipid-lowering therapy (LLT) in patients undergoing revascularization for left main (LM) coronary artery disease (CAD). We compared outcomes for patients with LMCAD randomized to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) according to the presence of baseline LLT in the EXCEL trial. Patients and methods The EXCEL trial randomized 1905 patients with LMCAD and SYNTAX scores up to 32 to PCI with everolimus-eluting stents versus CABG. Patients were categorized according to whether they were medically treated with LLT at...

We report our experience with RA for severely calcified LM-CAD. METHODS: From January 2008 to January 2017, all patients who underwent RA-assisted LM-PCI were evaluated. The study population included both protected and unprotected LM-CAD patients. Clinical characteristics and in-hospital outcomes were collected retrospectively. In-hospital outcomes included post-PCI myocardial infarction, stroke, death, emergency coronary artery bypass graft surgery, and urgent repeat PCI. Angiographic success was defined by residual stenosis

Conclusions: The present study, firstly, showed that TyG index was positively associated with future CVEs, suggesting that TyG may be a useful marker for predicting clinical outcomes in patients with CAD. PMID: 30622785 [PubMed]

They were divided into two groups according to the presence of cardiac arrest (group I, patients with cardiac arrest...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Despite the increasing number of patients after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) requiring coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), studies on the impact of these procedures on surgical revascularisation outcomes are sparse. Furthermore, advances in cardiology require reassessment of their potential prognostic significance. AIM: We sought to assess the influence of previous PCI on CABG outcomes. METHODS: A total of 211 consecutive patients scheduled for CABG were enrolled into this prospective study. Patients after PCI (group 1, n = 99) were compared with subjects with no hist...

AbstractBackgroundThe aim of this study was to examine the relationship of albuminuria to cardiovascular disease outcomes in diabetic patients undergoing treatment for stable coronary artery disease.Methods and resultsWe analyzed data from 2176 participants of the Bypass Angioplasty Revascularization Investigation in type ‐2 diabetes (BARI‐2D) trial, a randomized clinical trial comparing Percutaneous coronary intervention/Coronary artery bypass grafting (PCI/CABG) to medical therapy for people with diabetes. The population was stratified by baseline spot urine albumin–creatinine ratio (uACR) into normal (uACR

Purpose of review To provide an up-to-date review of recent trials examining the incidence and prognostic impact of new-onset atrial fibrillation (NOAF) following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) for left main coronary artery disease (LMCAD) and the impact of postprocedural NOAF compared to nonsurgical atrial fibrillation. Recent findings A recent analysis from the Evaluation of XIENCE versus Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery for Effectiveness of Left Main Revascularization (EXCEL) trial demonstrated that NOAF is much more frequent following surgical compared with percut...
