Impact of adherence to a Mediterranean Diet pattern on patients with First Acute Myocardial Infarction

ConclusionsA positive effect of the Mediterranean diet, and fruit and vegetable intake was observed on hsCRP and the occurrence of effective myocardial reperfusion. These findings confirm the favorable impact of Mediterranean diet adherence not only in primary but also in secondary prevention.

CONCLUSION: In real-world patients at high risk of bleeding, implantation of the polymer-free metallic stent coated with Biolimus-A9 (Biofreedom®; Biosensors Europe, Morges, Switzerland) followed by 1 -month DAPT showed encouraging results without any stent thrombosis.

We report the case of a 33-year-old woman with no history of coronary risk factors or chest pain who experienced intermittent chest pain at rest for several minutes from 2 PM. At 8 AM the next day, chest pain recurred and persisted for about 1 hour. She was transported to our hospital by ambulance, where electrocardiogram showed ST-elevation in the precordial leads, and blood tests showed elevation of cardiac markers. She was diagnosed with ST-elevation myocardial infarction. Because she was a young woman without any risk factors, coronary spastic angina was suspected. Coronary angiography without intracoronary nitrate adm...

AbstractThe prognostic value of the geriatric nutritional risk index (GNRI) in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with rotational atherectomy (RA) remains unknown. Therefore, we aimed to clarify whether the GNRI could predict major adverse cardiac events (MACE) in patients undergoing PCI with RA. A total of 206 patients who underwent PCI with RA from January 2009 to December 2017 were retrospectively tracked. The patients were divided into 2 groups based on the GNRI value on admission. MACE comprised all-cause death, target lesion revascularization (TLR), target vessel revascularization (TVR), and...

Cardiac rehabilitation (CR) is a recommended treatment strategy for multiple populations to elicit well-established improvements in functional capacity, quality of life, and long-term outcomes.1 –6 Risk reduction has been shown in both all-cause and cardiovascular mortality with CR participation following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), myocardial infarction (MI), coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, and ventricular assist device implantation.1,7–10 More recently, long -term major adverse cardiac events (MACE) have also been investigated in these populations as a method of identifying high-ris...

CONCLUSIONS: This case review illustrates the wide heterogeneity in antithrombotic pharmacotherapy among AF patients presenting with STEMI> 12 months after PCI. The underlying reason for STEMI is only partly related to disease progression or stent-related events. This finding suggests that multiple mechanisms of recurrence may be advocated, and are not only limited to antithrombotic therapy but may be explained by the natural history of coronary artery disease in remote vessels.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewOur review discusses the management of post percutaneous coronary intervention angina (PPCIA) which negatively impacts 20 –40% of patients and imposes a high burden on the healthcare system.Recent FindingsMechanisms of PPCIA include microvascular dysfunction, distal coronary vasospasm or disease, microembolization, myocardial bridge, coronary artery disease (CAD) progression, and rarely stent thrombosis or in-stent restenosis. Nitrates, beta blockers (BB), calcium channel blockers, and ranolazine are the common medical management options. Only BB showed 1-year mortality benefit following myoc...

CONCLUSIONS: Age and female gender are associated with lower CFR, and age with worse CFC in an angiographically non-obstructed coronary artery. CFC seems to be less sensitive to variations in clinical and hemodynamic parameters than CFR, and therefore is a promising tool in contemporary clinical decision making in the cardiac catheterization laboratory.

Authors: Chen X, Meng Y, Shao M, Zhang T, Han L, Zhang W, Zhang H, Hai H, Li G Abstract BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to investigate the clinical predictive value of pre-infarction angina (PIA) combined with mean platelet volume to lymphocyte count ratio (MPVLR) for no-reflow phenomenon and short-term mortality in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 1009 STEMI patients who had undergone PCI were enrolled and subdivided into 4 groups based on the occurrence of PIA and the presence of MPVLR ...
