CONCLUSION: Most clinical characteristics were similar between the IgG4-related periaortitis/periarteritis and the non-vascular IgG4-related disease groups; however, serum C-reactive protein level elevation was observed only in the former. Although corticosteroid treatment was effective, this disease can be life-threatening secondary to myocardial infarction, aortic dissection, and aneurysmal rupture. Pre-treatment evaluation of stenosis or aneurysms is important for predicting progression of stenosis or aneurysm after corticosteroid treatment.

Osteoporosis is a condition in which bones become porous (less dense) and weaker. It affects 10 million people in the United States: approximately eight million women and two million men. As bone weakens, people are more likely to experience fractures, especially in the spine, hip, and forearm. This causes pain, diminishes a person’s ability to function, and reduces quality of life. Anything that can lower the risk of osteoporosis and fractures has major positive public health implications. That’s why a new drug called romosozumab is getting a lot of attention. Which medications can help treat osteoporosis? The...

Authors: Brener SJ, Alapati V, Benson MM, Chan D, Cunn G, Khan S, Kutkut I, Narayanan CA, O'Laughlin JP, Sacchi TJ Abstract Dual-antiplatelet therapy is recommended for all patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS), regardless of performance of revascularization. Ticagrelor (T) was shown to be superior to clopidogrel (C) in a large, randomized clinical trial, but data from real-world practice are lacking. We identified ACS patients from our institutional registry who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention and received one of the two drugs at hospital discharge based on physician preference. Among 1439 pati...

Authors: Alsadat N, Hyun K, D'Souza M, Chew D, Weaver J, Juergens C, Kritharides L, Hammett C, Brieger D Abstract BACKGROUND: Approximately 50% of patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) have multivessel coronary disease (MVD). Evidence on the best PCI approach for these patients is conflicting. The aim of this study is to examine Australian data from the CONCORDANCE registry to describe the practice and outcomes of patients receiving multivessel vs culprit-only PCI. METHODS: Two cohorts were constructed from MVD-STEMI patients undergoi...
