Cangrelor versus Ticagrelor in Patients Treated with Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention: Impact on Platelet Activity, Myocardial Microvascular Function and Infarct Size: A Randomized Controlled Trial.

CONCLUSION:  Cangrelor produces more potent P2Y12 inhibition at the time of first coronary balloon inflation time compared with ticagrelor. Despite this enhanced P2Y12 inhibition, coronary microvascular function and final infarct size did not differ between groups. PMID: 31129911 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: It appears that further studies are necessary to explain this problem, perhaps to include an evaluation of TF levels in psoriatic skin. PMID: 31616219 [PubMed]

ConclusionsThe overall VTE rate after CABG has been low. However, the condition has been associated with worse 30-day postoperative outcomes and complications. The independent predictors of VTE development included a history of bleeding disorders, congestive heart failure in the 30 days before surgery, and operative time of ≥310 minutes. Understanding these risk factors should aid physicians in the decisions regarding prophylaxis and treatment.

CONCLUSIONS: Clinical outcomes of PCI for long lesions in hemodialysis patients were similar to that of non-long lesions. Long-stenting in hemodialysis patients, who were considered high-risk subset of adverse cardiovascular events, might be acceptable in the second-generation DES era.

The first patient has been enrolled in Penumbra’s CHEETAH post-market study to evaluate the Indigo System with CAT RX Aspiration Catheter in the coronary vessels. About 400 patients are expected to be enrolled at 25 centers in CHEETAH. Alameda, CA-based Penumbra’s Indigo System uses mechanical power aspiration to remove thrombus in the coronaries. The primary study endpoint is a composition of cardiovascular (CV) death, recurrent myocardial infarction (MI), cardiogenic shock or new or worsening New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class IV heart failure within 30 days. Secondary endpoints i...

ConclusionThere does not appear to be any benefit to TXA administration in Trauma Patients in our institution. This is a single-center retrospective review. More data from other similar centers in the region or the United States is warranted.

CONCLUSION: The study showed that patients treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention had better mean steps count and mean stepping time per day between weeks 2 and 6 after hospitalization in comparison with other treatment modalities. These findings could be used for development of effective intervention in the future. Further research using different research methods such as longitudinal studies among different cultures to confirm the finding of this study is recommended. PMID: 31593066 [PubMed - in process]

il;alves LM Abstract Since the disclosure of the fibrinogen degradation mechanism, around half a century ago, a significant number of papers have been published related to the clinical relevance of D-dimer, a molecule immune to additional enzymatic decomposition by plasmin. Due to the obliquity of regulating blood coagulation in pathological events, the number of diseases and conditions associated with abnormal levels of D-dimer includes deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, sepsis, myocardial infarction, disseminated intravascular coagulation, among many others. D-dimer not only is an important player in medi...

Venous thromboembolism, com prising deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, is the third most common cause of cardiovascular death after stroke and myocardial infarction.1 Anticoagulation is the keystone in venous thromboembolism treatment and prevention of venous thromboembolism morbidity, mortality, and recurrence. International guidelines mandate anticoagulant therapy for a minimum of 3 months after proximal deep vein thrombosis and/or pulmonary embolism.2,3

We report the presence of a giant aneurysm of the right coronary artery and giant ectasia of the left coronary system with active thrombosis in a man with history of an abdominal aortic aneurysm, with endovascular treatment and a non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction with no reperfusion strategy, who required a coronary computed tomography, identifying the anatomical characteristics of this disease.
