One-year clinical outcomes in patients with renal insufficiency after contemporary PCI: data from a multicenter registry

AbstractBackgroundChronic kidney disease (CKD) is highly prevalent in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD).ObjectiveThe outcome following revascularization using contemporary technologies (new-generation abluminal sirolimus-eluting stents with thin struts) in patients with CKD (i.e., glomerular filtration rate of

AbstractLow-molecular-weight heparins (LMWHs) are the mainstay of the prophylaxis and treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE). Due to their renal elimination, the risk of accumulation with the related bleeding risk may represent a limitation for the use of LMWHs in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) as the risk of major bleeding is increased in patients with creatinine clearance (CrCl)

AbstractEnd stage renal disease requiring hemodialysis (HD) is frequent and coronary artery disease (CAD) is a common comorbidity. It is associated with bleeding and ischemic events. Platelet reactivity is a well-known determinant of both. However, the impact of HD due to end stage chronic kidney disease (CKD) on platelet reactivity is unknown. Therefore in this study, we evaluated platelet reactivity during hemodialysis in patients with CKD and coronary artery disease. 22 patients with CKD, HD and CAD were included in this study. Light transmission aggregometry (LTA) and flow cytometry were used for evaluating platelet fu...

ConclusionsIn our study, DOACs appeared to be as efficacious and safe in CKD IV and V as in CKD III. In addition, DOACs appeared to be more effective than, and as safe as warfarin when compared with reference studies of patients with advanced CKD. Our findings support the use of DOACs for thromboembolism prevention in patients with advanced CKD and AF.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved

AbstractAtrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia in clinical practice and its prevalence increases with age. Few data are available about the clinical performance of direct oral anticoagulant (DOACs) in patients aged  ≥ 80 years with AF. The aim of our propensity score matched cohort study was to compare the safety and efficacy of DOACs versus well-controlled VKA therapy among octogenarians with AF in real life setting. Data for this study were sourced from the multicenter prospectively maintained Atrial Fibrillation Research Database (NCT03760874), which includes all AF patients followe...

Authors: Wu Y, Song Y, Pan Y, Gong Y, Zhou Y Abstract The study aimed to compare the efficacy and safety outcome associated with a short and a prolonged duration of thienopyridine therapy in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) after coronary stenting. We systematically searched PubMed, EMBASE and the Cochrane Library from their inception to 1 January 2019 for studies comparing short and prolonged thienopyridine therapy in patients with CKD. Ischemic and bleeding events were considered as the clinical endpoints in this analysis. Odds Ratios (OR) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were used as estimates of ef...

Conclusion: In early-stage CKD, NOACs had a benefit-risk profile superior to that of VKAs. For advanced CKD or ESKD, there was insufficient evidence to establish benefits or harms of VKAs or NOACs.

SoodAbstractChronic kidney disease affects over 3 million Canadians and is highly associated with cardiovascular diseases that require anticoagulation, such as atrial fibrillation and venous thromboembolism. Patients with chronic kidney disease are at a problematic crossroads; they are at high risk of both thrombotic conditions requiring anticoagulation and bleeding complications due to anticoagulation. The limited high-quality clinical evidence to...

AbstractAtrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac rhythm disturbance and is associated with increased risk of thromboembolism. Oral anticoagulants are effective at reducing rates of thromboembolism in patients with AF in the general population. Patients with AF and concurrent chronic kidney disease (CKD) have higher risk of thromboembolism and bleeding compared with patients with normal renal function. Among moderate CKD and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients on chronic dialysis, the use of oral anticoagulants is controversial. Use of warfarin, while beneficial in non-CKD patients, raises a number of concern...

CONCLUSIONS: In the largest real-world practice study among Asians with NVAF, four DOACs were associated with lower risks of thromboembolism and bleeding than warfarin. There was consistency even amongst high risk subgroups and whether standard dose or low dose regimes were compared. PMID: 31103697 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
