We report the case of a 6-year-old child with anomalous origin of right coronary artery from aortic left coronary sinus, who underwent elective surgical replacement of stenotic and calcified conduit between the right ventricle and the main pulmonary artery. The surgery was complicated by acute myocardial infarction secondary to coronary extrinsic compression. The patient was successfully treated with urgent percutaneous coronary intervention (simultaneous V-stenting) and cangrelor infusion, subsequently switched to clopidogrel therapy.

AbstractPurposeThe aim of this study was to explore the safety and efficacy of bivalirudin in elderly patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).MethodsAn electronic search was conducted for randomized controlled trials with outcomes of interest in the elderly ( ≥ 65 years of age). Pooled risk ratios (RR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) using random effects Der Simonian–Laird models were calculated. Primary outcomes were net adverse clinical events (NACE) and major bleeding events at 30 days. Secondary outcomes were major adverse cardiac events (MA CE) at 30 days. MACE, all...

This study will add new insights in the management of antiplatelet therapy in patients with STEMI undergoing primary PCI and might be hypothesis-generating for future clinical trials in this field. The trial is registered onclinicaltrials.gov NCT02978040, and EudraCT 2017-001065-24.

Introduction Acute hyperglycemia and contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) are frequently observed in non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and both are associated with an increased mortality rate. We investigated the possible association between acute hyperglycemia and CIN in patients with NSTEMI undergoing PCI. Materials and methods We retrospectively enrolled 281(149, 53% men) NSTEMI patients undergoing PCI. For each patient, plasma glucose levels were secreened at hospital admission. Acute hyperglycemia was defined as glucose levels> 198&thins...

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.

ConclusionsIn 2016, according to data from these national registries, almost all patients with STEMI were treated with aspirin and 76% with dual antiplatelet agents, mostly clopidogrel. GP IIb/IIIa inhibitors were used in few patients, and UFH was the most prevalent parenteral anticoagulant drug.ResumoIntroduçãoO tratamento do enfarte agudo do miocárdio com elevação do segment ST (EAMCSST) baseia-se na ativação da via verde coronária, na administração de terapêutica médica adjuvante e na reperfusão através de angioplastia prim&...

Philips is continuing its investment into percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures through a new study. The company announced the (Distal Evaluation of Functional performance with Intravascular sensors to assess the Narrowing Effect: Guided Physiologic Stenting) (DEFINE GPS) global multicenter study, which has a goal to assess outcomes of PCI procedures guided by integrated iFR and interventional X-ray images. The announcement of the study comes on the heels of Philips making a bid to shed its appliances unit so it can focus on healthcare.  The primary endpoint is target vessel failure (a composite o...

AbstractAimsFew studies describe recent changes in the prevalence, management, and outcomes of cardiogenic shock (CS) patients complicating acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in the era of widespread use of invasive strategies. The aim of the present study was to analyse trends observed in CS complicating AMI over the past 10  years, focusing on the timing of CS occurrence (i.e. primary CS, CS on admission vs. secondary CS, CS developed subsequently during hospitalization).Methods and resultsThree nationwide French registries conducted and designed to evaluate AMI management and outcomes in ‘real‐life’ ...
