Authors: Șerban RC, Șuș I, Lakatos EK, Demjen Z, Ceamburu A, Fișcă PC, Somkereki C, Hadadi L, Scridon A Abstract BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) often complicates ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Predictors of AF in this setting include factors related to the acute phase of STEMI and pre-existing conditions. More recently, novel AF predictors have been identified in the general population. We aimed to assess the ability of such novel factors to predict STEMI-related AF. METHODS: Data were collected from STEMI patients treated by primary PCI. Factors related to the acute phase of STE...

In this study, we aimed to investigate the relationship between ICAM-1 levels and the presence of fQRS in hypertensive patients. METHODS: Ninety consecutive patients who were diagnosed with hypertension were included in the study. ECG and transthoracic echocardiography were performed to all patients. fQRS was defined as additional R' wave or notching/splitting of S wave in two contiguous ECG leads. Serum ICAM-1 levels were measured using the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay method. Patients were divided into two groups according to the presence of fQRS. RESULTS: A total of 90 patients (female, 65%; mean age: 54.6&...

Authors: Geis N, Raake P, Kiriakou C, Mereles D, Frankenstein L, Abu-Sharar H, Chorianopoulos E, Katus HA, Bekeredjian R, Pleger ST Abstract BACKGROUND: Incidence of stroke within 30 days after percutaneous mitral valve repair using the MitraClip varies from 0.7% and 2.6% between registries. Standard medical treatment after the MitraClip procedure, in the absence of risk factors requiring antithrombotic therapy such as atrial fibrillation, is dual antiplatelet therapy using aspirin and clopidogrel. ESC/EACTS and ACC/AHA surgical guidelines show a Class IIa indication for temporary antithrombotic therapy after ...
