AbstractBackgroundThe amelioration of myocardial reperfusion in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) remains a significant issue.ObjectiveWe conducted a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to better assess the effects of intracoronary nicorandil administration on myocardial microcirculation and clinical outcomes in these patients.MethodsThe meta-analysis was performed according to the PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses) statement.

ConclusionsIn this retrospective analysis of our clinical experience treating CRE infections in an LTACH setting, we documented that CRE infections occur in patients with substantial comorbidities. Although clinical outcome remains of great concern, the 28-day mortality and rate of eradication of CRE in this study were comparatively better than other national estimates. Inappropriate empiric treatment may be one of many factors leading to overall poor treatment outcomes.

Evidence of sympathetic and renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system activation provided a rationale for neurohormonal antagonism in heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF), while no data are available in patients with milder degree of systolic dysfunction. We aimed to investigate neurohormonal function in HF with preserved and mid-range EF (HFpEF/HFmrEF).
