Synthetic marijuana use has been reported in the last years as a possible causative factor of different cardiovascular events, including myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke, intracranial bleeding, and cerebral vasospasm. One case of aortic thrombosis was also reported, but that was in a patient using cocaine and synthetic marijuana together. A case of lower limb thromboembolism and synthetic marijuana use has not been reported to date. Intoxication, material impurity, blood vessel reactivity, and chemical interaction with other drugs have been proposed as possible mechanisms of these events.

This study aimed to investigate the prognostic value of neutrophil percentage to albumin ratio (NPAR) for in-hospital mortality in STEMI patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS There were 1024 patients hospitalized with acute STEMI retrospectively enrolled in this study. Demographic, clinical, and admission laboratory data were extracted from medical record. NPAR was calculated as neutrophil percentage numerator divided by albumin in the admission blood samples. In-hospital mortality was designed as the primary outcome in the study, major adverse cardiac events (MACE) and cardiac death were recorded as the secondary clinical outcom...

Authors: Buccheri S, Capodanno D, James S, Angiolillo DJ Abstract Introduction: Potent platelet inhibition reduces the risk of thrombotic complications including myocardial infarction and death in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Targeting different pathways involved in thrombotic processes have synergistic effects and more effectively counteract thrombosis both in the acute and long-term following an ACS. Unavoidably, more potent platelet inhibition increases the risk of bleeding. In light of the adverse prognostic implications associated with bleeding, including increased mortality, safety aspects wit...

One of our residents who just graduated 3 months ago texted me this ECG:" Hey Steve, would be grateful for any thoughts on this EKG.  60-something with 2 days of waxing and waning epigastric pain and diaphoresis.  Also diffuse abdominal tenderness. "Presenting ECG:What was my answer?What is the management? My Answer: " Inferior and lateral OMI "Detailed Interpretation:Sinus rhythm.  Left axis deviation, but not quite LAFB (no r-wave in inferior leads; no q-wave in aVL).  There is less than 1 mm STE in inferior leads, with reciprocal ST depression. There are hyperacute T-wav...

Malathi Thevarajah, Boon Tong Goh, Sook Mei KhorAbstractRecently, surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) has attracted much attention in medical diagnosis applications owing to better detection sensitivity and lower limit of detection (LOD) than colorimetric detection. In this paper, a novel calibration-free SERS−based μPAD with multi-reaction zones for simultaneous quantitative detection of multiple cardiac biomarkers — GPBB, CK−MB and cTnT for early diagnosis and prognos...
