Contemporary Invasive Management and In-hospital Outcomes of Patients with Non-ST-segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction in China: Findings from China Acute Myocardial Infarction (CAMI) Registry

ConclusionInvasive management was underused and profoundly deferred among patients with NSTEMI in China. The risk-treatment paradox, procedure deferral and medical resources distribution imbalance may represent opportunities for improvement.

Conclusions: Embolism associated with asymptomatic carotid stenosis shows circadian variation with highest rates 4–6 h before midday. This corresponds with peak circadian incidence of stroke and other vascular complications. These and ASED Study results show that monitoring frequency, duration, and time of day are important in ES detection. Introduction Transcranial Doppler (TCD) detected microembolism in the ipsilateral middle cerebral artery (MCA) may help stratify the risk of stroke and other arterial disease complications in persons with advanced (≥60%) asymptomatic carotid stenosis. If so, this techniqu...

CONCLUSION: Women with STEMI are less likely to receive invasive management, revascularisation, or preventive medication at discharge. The reasons for these persistent differences in care require investigation. PMID: 30025513 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

BACKGROUNDThere is a paucity of information about treatment and mortality trends after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) for cancer survivors (CS). METHODSIn this population‐based study, the authors compared temporal trends of treatments and outcomes (mortality, nonfatal cardiovascular outcomes), among CS and patients without cancer (the noncancer patient [NCP] group) with AMI in Ontario (Canada) using inverse probability treatment weight (IPTW)‐adjusted modeling. RESULTSOf 270,089 patients with AMI (22,907 CS, 247,182 NCP, 1995‐2013; median follow‐up, 10.1 and 11.0 years, respectively), the use of invasive coronar...

The objective of this analysis was to describe disease management and clinical outcome of Austrian outpatients with stable CAD over 5 years by using data from the international CLARIFY registry. METHODS: CLARIFY was an international prospective observational registry of outpatients with stable CAD, defined as prior myocardial infarction or revascularization (CABG or PCI), coronary stenosis of more than 50% by coronary angiography or chest pain with myocardial ischemia. We analyzed demographic characteristics, risk factors, treatments and clinical outcomes of 424 Austrian outpatients with established CAD who were enrol...

Background and Purpose—We investigated whether statin pretreatment can dose dependently reduce periprocedural complications in patients undergoing carotid artery stenting because of symptomatic carotid artery stenosis.Methods—We enrolled a consecutive series of 397 symptomatic carotid artery stenosis (≥50% stenosis on conventional angiography) treated with carotid artery stenting at 2 tertiary university hospitals over a decade. Definition of periprocedural complications included any stroke, myocardial infarction, and death within 1 month after or during the procedure. Statin pretreatment was divided into 3 ...

Background The effect of air pollution exposure on atherosclerosis severity or incident clinical events in patients with coronary artery disease is not known. Methods and Results We conducted a prospective longitudinal cohort study of 6575 Ohio residents undergoing elective diagnostic coronary angiography. Multinomial regression and Cox proportional hazards models were used to assess the relationship between exposure to fine particulate matter
