Authors: Zhao Y, Meng S, Liu T, Dong R Abstract BACKGROUND Surgical treatment methods for patients with complex coronary artery disease (CAD) who have undergone vascular reconstruction mainly include coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The purpose of the study aimed to compare a 1-year follow-up for the patient clinical outcomes and costs between PCI and CABG treatment. MATERIAL AND METHODS There were 840 patients enrolled in this study from July 2015 to September 2016. Among the study participants, 420 patients underwent PCI treatment and 420 patients underwent off-pum...

CONCLUSIONS: Despite being performed in patients with a higher burden of comorbidities and with larger volumes of contrast, RA PCI is not associated with higher risk of CIN, compared with PCI in non-RA patients. PMID: 32100984 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Persampieri S, Lucreziotti S, Salerno-Uriarte D, Barbieri L, Sponzilli C, Valli F, Centola M, Castini D, Carugo S Abstract BACKGROUND: Heavy calcified lesions can decrease effectiveness of drug eluted stents in preventing restenosis. Rotational atherectomy (RA) demonstrated to improve outcomes in patients with severely calcified lesions pretreated with debulking. However, its feasibility and its safety are continuously on stage. Our aim has been to identify predictors of clinical and procedural outcome in RA. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed a population of patients referred to our cath lab for urg...

CONCLUSIONS: SS PCI was associated with worse clinical outcomes compared with MS PCI. MS PCI for non-infarct-related artery could be a better option for patients with STEMI and MVCD, especially high-risk patients. PMID: 32100479 [PubMed]

This study aimed to investigate changes in exercise duration after PCI according to functional completeness of revascularization by comparing pre- and post-PCI exercise stress test (EST). METHODS: Patients with SIHD were enrolled from a prospective PCI registry, and divided into 2 groups: 1) functional complete revascularization (CR) group had a positive EST before PCI and negative EST after PCI, 2) functional incomplete revascularization (IR) group had positive EST before and after PCI. Primary outcome was change in exercise duration after PCI and secondary outcome was major adverse cardiac events (MACE, a composite o...

Authors: Won H, Suh Y, Kim GS, Ko YG, Hong MK Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Whether beta blockers favorably impact the clinical outcome in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) remains in debate. We investigated the impact of beta blocker on major clinical outcomes during 2 years after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with AMI. METHODS: All patients with the first AMI treated with PCI for the period of 2005 to 2014 from the Korean National Health Insurance Service claims database were enrolled. We defined the regular user as medication possession ratio (MPR) ≥80% and non-u...

ConclusionReperfusion and revascularization capabilities of tertiary CM hospitals have improved significantly, but in-hospital mortality has not significantly decreased. Efforts are needed to improve medical awareness of AMI and expand the use of CM to reduce in-hospital mortality in China.

We report the case of a 6-year-old child with anomalous origin of right coronary artery from aortic left coronary sinus, who underwent elective surgical replacement of stenotic and calcified conduit between the right ventricle and the main pulmonary artery. The surgery was complicated by acute myocardial infarction secondary to coronary extrinsic compression. The patient was successfully treated with urgent percutaneous coronary intervention (simultaneous V-stenting) and cangrelor infusion, subsequently switched to clopidogrel therapy.

AbstractPurposeThe aim of this study was to explore the safety and efficacy of bivalirudin in elderly patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).MethodsAn electronic search was conducted for randomized controlled trials with outcomes of interest in the elderly ( ≥ 65 years of age). Pooled risk ratios (RR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) using random effects Der Simonian–Laird models were calculated. Primary outcomes were net adverse clinical events (NACE) and major bleeding events at 30 days. Secondary outcomes were major adverse cardiac events (MA CE) at 30 days. MACE, all...
