Complication during transportation and 30  days mortality of patients with acute coronary syndrome

Patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) who present to hospitals without interventional facilities frequently require transfer to another hospital equipped with a cardiac catheterization laboratory. This r...

CONCLUSION: Most patients were fasted for significantly longer than recommended and pre-hydration was underutilised in patients at high risk of contrast-induced nephropathy. There were no episodes of aspiration with modern contrast agents. Further studies are required to evaluate the need for fasting prior to non-emergency cardiac catheterisation.

In-hospital adverse events such as cardiac arrest are preceded by abnormalities in physiological data and are associated with high mortality. Healthcare institutions have implemented rapid response systems such as the medical emergency team for early recognition and response to clinical deterioration. Yet, most cardiac catheterisation laboratories, have yet to formally implement a rapid response system, so the nature and frequency of clinical deterioration is unclear and no published data exist.

This study involved 45 CTEPH patients who underwent BPA with mean pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP) of 37.0 mmHg (all ≥ 25 mmHg). All patients underwent echocardiography and right-heart catheterization at baseline and 3 months after BPA. RV and RA remodeling was assessed as RV and the RA area, and RV systolic function was calculated by averaging peak speckle-tracking longitudinal strain of the RV free-wall (RV free-wall strain). Significant reverse remodeling in the right-sided heart was observed after BPA, resulting in improvement of mPAP and pulmonary vascular resistance (RV area: from 15.0 ±&thins...

We conducted a survey of doctors working in the cardiac catheterisation laboratories in Africa on their knowledge, attitude and practice with respect to radiation protection. Of seventy-two respondents contacted, 61 (84.7%) completed the questionnaire. Twenty-eight, (45.9%) were younger than 45 years. Thirty-seven, (60.6%) had less than 10 years of experience in the laboratory. Only 28 (45.9%) had undertaken radiation protection training. Fifty-eight, (95.1%) consistently used lead aprons. Forty-seven, (77%) reported consistently using thyroid shields. Ten (16.4%) consistently used radiation protection eyeglasses, wh...

The etiology of vocal fold paralysis is multifaceted. One of the rare causes is internal jugular vein thrombosis secondary to central venous catheterization. The palsy is usually ipsilateral to the site of indwelled catheterization, self-limited and reversible. The authors of this manuscript report a rare case of contralateral recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy induced by subclavian vein thrombosis following central venous catheterization. The patient developed irreversible vocal fold paralysis that necessitated office-based injection laryngoplasty.

Conclusions: Race, coronary risk factors, and all cause mortality are not associated with angiographic documented coronary calcification in any location in patients undergoing diagnostic coronary angiography.

This study aimed to explore the cardiologist adherence with ACC/AHA guidelines on discharge medications for patients admitted with acute coronary syndrome (ACS), assess the predictors of cardiologist non-adherence and measure the impact of pharmacist intervention on improving guideline adherence.MethodsThe study included two consecutive phases: observation and intervention. It was carried out at Al-Najaf Center for Cardiac Surgery and Catheterization, Iraq, from August through December 2018. In the observation phase, medical records were reviewed retrospectively in order to assess the adherence to guideline. The interventi...

The rapid rise in circulating fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) associated with kidney injury results in calcitriol deficiency, altered calcium homeostasis, and secondary hyperparathyroidism, and may contribute to cardiovascular complications and death. However, the mechanisms of increased FGF23 in states of kidney injury remain unclear. In this issue of the JCI, Simic et al. screened plasma taken from the renal vein of patients undergoing cardiac catheterization and identified glycerol-3-phosphate (G-3-P) as the most significant correlate of simultaneous arterial FGF23 levels. When G-3-P was administered to mice, FGF23 ...
