Prognostic Value of SYNTAX Score II in Patients with Acute Coronary Syndromes Referred for Invasive Management: A Subanalysis from the SPUM and COMFORTABLE AMI Cohorts.

Prognostic Value of SYNTAX Score II in Patients with Acute Coronary Syndromes Referred for Invasive Management: A Subanalysis from the SPUM and COMFORTABLE AMI Cohorts. Cardiol Res Pract. 2018;2018:9762176 Authors: Obeid S, Frangieh AH, Räber L, Yousif N, Gilhofer T, Yamaji K, Jaguszewski M, Aghlmandi S, Adams J, Bockhorn Y, Templin C, Stähli BE, Jüni P, Rodondi N, Mach F, Roffi M, Windecker S, Maier W, Nietlispach F, Matter CM, Klingenberg R, Lüscher TF Abstract Aims: To assess the incremental prognostic value of SYNTAX score II (SxSII) as compared to anatomical SYNTAX Score (SxS) and GRACE risk score in patients with acute coronary syndromes who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention. Methods and results: SxSII and SxS were determined in 734 ACS patients. Patients were enrolled in the prospective Special Program University Medicine ACS and the COMFORTABLE AMI cohorts and later on stratified according to tertiles of SxSII (SxSIILow ≤21.5 (n=245), SxSIIMid 21.5-30.6 (n=245), and SxSIIHigh ≥30.6 (n=244). The primary endpoint of adjudicated all-cause mortality and secondary endpoints of MACE (cardiac death, repeat revascularization, and myocardial infarction) and MACCE (all-cause mortality, cerebrovascular events, MI, and repeat revascularization) were determined at 1-year follow-up. SxSII provided incremental predictive information for risk stratification when compared to SxS and GRACE risk score (AUC 0.804, 95% CI 0.7...

Abstract Introduction: The outcome of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is significantly influenced by the total tissue ischemic time. In spite of efforts for reducing the in-hospital delay by full-time provision of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (P-PCI) in the 24/7 program, pre-hospital delay still persists. As a first report in Iran, we aimed to assess the duration of pre-hospital delay and its contributing factors in STEMI patients in the P-PCI era. Methods: The present cross-sectional study evaluated 2103 STEMI patients who underwent primary PCI from 2016 to 2018. Demographic, persona...

This study was planned to assess the differences in the clinical characteristics, angiographic characteristics, and in-hospital outcomes of smokers and nonsmokers after primary percutaneous coronary intervention at a tertiary care hospital in Karachi, Pakistan.MethodsWe included patients between 40 and 80 years of age diagnosed with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention from July 1, 2017, to March 31, 2018. Clinical and angiographic characteristics and in-hospital outcomes were obtained from the cases submitted to the National Cardiovascular Data Registry's Cath...

ConclusionsThe incidence of CIN was slightly lower in PIS as compared to PPCI; however, this reduction was not statistically significant. The independent predictors of CIN were advanced age, history of diabetes mellitus and hypertension, high dose of contrast agent, and cardiogenic shock.

ConclusionsIn patients with LMCA disease, we have identified no significant interaction between the acuity of clinical indication and the relative treatment effect of PCI versus CABG on 10-year clinical outcomes.

Abstract Coronary heart disease (CHD) remains a major cause of mortality with a huge economic burden on healthcare worldwide. Here, we conducted a systematic review to investigate the efficacy and safety of Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) for CHD based on high-quality randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and summarized its possible mechanisms according to animal-based researches. 27 eligible studies were identified in eight database searches from inception to June 2018. The methodological quality was assessed using seven-item checklist recommended by Cochrane Collaboration. All the data were analyzed using Rev-Man 5....

Abstract BACKGROUND: In patients with severe coronary artery disease (CAD) requiring coronary revascularization, the prevalence of surgical ineligibility and its clinical effect on long-term outcomes remain unclear.Methods and Results:Among 15,939 patients with first coronary revascularization in the CREDO-Kyoto percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)/coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) registry cohort-2, we identified 3,982 patients with triple-vessel or left main disease (PCI: n=2,188, and CABG: n=1,794). Surgical ineligibility as documented in hospital charts was present in 142 (6.5%) of 2,188 PCI-patie...

ConclusionThere was no impact of lower intracoronary contrast injection pressure in comparison to higher injection pressure, during primary PCI in patients with acute STEMI, on myocardial reperfusion as assessed by MBG or ST segment changes in the ECG.The study was registered at registry ClinicalTrials.gov with the registration number: NCT03445364, on February 26th 2018.

Emergency coronary angiography (CAG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) are thought to improve outcomes in cardiac arrest (CA) survivors with ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and those without STEMI but likely cardiac etiology (shockable rhythms). However, the role of CAG  ± PCI in OHCA survivors with non-shockable rhythms and no STEMI post-resuscitation remains unclear.

In this study, we aimed to investigate the predictive value of hyperglycemia on thrombus burden in nondiabetic patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) who underwent to primer percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI). We enrolled 619 nondiabetic patients with STEMI who received PPCI. Patients were divided two groups according to thrombus burden. Stress hyperglycemia was determined as blood glucose concentration more than 180 mg/dl and angiographic coronary thrombus burden was scored based on thrombolysis in myocardial infarction thrombus grades. Patients with thrombus grades 4 were defined as lar...
