Abstract BACKGROUND: Necroptosis plays an important role in human atherosclerosis and atheroma development. Since receptor interacting protein kinase-3 (RIP3) acts as a key mediator of necroptosis, this study aimed to explore its relationship between plasma RIP3 levels and coronary artery disease (CAD) and discover a potential new biomarker for screening CAD subtypes and severity. METHODS: A total of 318 patients with CAD who had coronary angiography and 166 controls in Peking Union Medical College Hospital from September 2017 to January 2018 were enrolled in this study. Patients with CAD were divided into th...

Authors: Myrcha P, Miłek T, Woźniak W, Kozdój B, Ciostek P Abstract BACKGROUND: Renal insufficiency and allergy to iodine contrast are relative contraindications to carotid artery stenting (CAS). The primary aim of this pilot study was to evaluate the feasibility and safety of the CAS assisted by 3D fusion of previously performed computed tomography (CTA) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) images and DynaCT, the secondary aim was to determine if 3D fusion decreases radiation exposure and the amount of contrast needed during the procedure. METHODS: Retrospective review of patients who underwent CA...

Authors: Matsumura K, Kin H, Matsuki R, Adachi K, Goda T, Yamamoto Y, Sugiura T, Shiojima I Abstract A 72-year-old woman with hypertension, dyslipidemia, and diabetes mellitus presented to our hospital because of the sudden onset of chest pain. Emergency coronary angiography showed acute occlusion of the distal left anterior descending artery and coronary intervention with a drug-eluting stent was performed. Sudden cardiopulmonary arrest occurred on the sixth day of hospitalization, but coronary angiography showed no remarkable progression of the coronary artery diseases, including the site of stent implantation. A...

Authors: Uchida Y, Iwamoto Y, Urushihara Y, Nagura M, Tanaka R, Arakawa H, Ishido H, Moriwaki K, Masutani S Abstract Incomplete Kawasaki disease (iKD), which does not satisfy the standard KD diagnostic criteria because the required number of principal symptoms is not met, sometimes causes coronary aneurysms. Here we report the case of a patient with iKD who presented with only one principal symptom that resulted in the development of coronary aneurysm, as evidenced by angiography.

Abstract The coronary slow flow phenomenon (CSFP) is a poorly recognized clinical entity characterized by delayed distal vessel opacification in the absence of epicardial coronary stenosis and presently lack of specific data on the clinical profile and outcome. We investigated a cohort of 429 patients who fulfilled the criteria for CSFP to explore the clinical feature, outcome, and risk factor of prognosis. Two teams (clinical center and core lab) were blind to patient data for the assessment of coronary angiograph using corrected thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) frame count (CTFC). The study cohort co...

Background: In reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS), nimodipine is currently used for the treatment, although no evidence is available to support its disease-modifying effect. In this prospective observational study, we investigated whether earlier nimodipine treatment can modify the clinical course of reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome. Methods: We prospectively observed patients with angiogram-proven RCVS within 1 month after onset in the Samsung Medical Center between October 2015 and January 2018. Nimodipine was started in all patients immediately after diagnosis. Time from onset to the fir...
