12-Month clinical outcomes of amphilimus drug eluting stents in an all-comers South-East Asian registry

ConclusionIn a contemporary all-comers South-East Asian registry with high rate of diabetes mellitus, AES was found to be efficacious with a low incidence of MACE observed at 12-month follow-up.

This study aims to investigate the clinical and angiographic characteristics of patients with spontaneous reperfusion in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). A total of 519 patients with STEMI were enrolled in this study, who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) treatments at Beijing Anzhen Hospital from January 2015 to December 2018. The patients were divided into 2 groups according to the TIMI flow grade before primary PCI, the non-spontaneous reperfusion group (TIMI flow grade 0–II) and the spontaneous reperfusion group (TIMI flow grade III). The incidence rate, the clinically...

In this study, diabetes mellitus, late presentation, higher Killip class at admission, anterior wall infarction, proximal site of occlusion, presence of high-grade thrombus, and left ventricular systolic dysfunction at admission were significantly associated with suboptimal coronary flow. Diabetes mellitus, a high thrombus burden, prolonged total ischemic time, and low left ventricular ejection fraction on admission were independent predictors of no-reflow. No-reflow during PPCI was associated with in-hospital mortality more than twice that for normal flow. PMID: 30956576 [PubMed]

CONCLUSION: The study documents that smokers with acute STEMI have similar outcomes as compared to non smokers with higher thrombus burden and lesser non culprit artery involvement. Smokers present at much younger age emphasizing the role of smoking cessation for prevention of myocardial infarction. PMID: 30392506 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract OBJECTIVE: We aimed to determine whether the combination of a CHA2DS2-VASc score (C: Congestive Heart Failure, H: Hypertension, A2: Age ≥ 75 years, D: Diabetes mellitus, S: Stroke history, V: Vascular disease, A: Age ≥ 65 years, Sc: Sex category) and pre-percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) thrombus load score was more sensitive at detecting the no-reflow phenomenon compared to the CHA2DS2-VASc score alone or to the thrombus load score alone in patients with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) who had underwent primary PCI (PPCI). PATIENTS AND METHODS: 497 patients with acute S...

CONCLUSION: Despite higher-risk baseline characteristics, patients with CKD had no significant differences in MACCE. Orbital atherectomy represents a reasonable treatment strategy for the treatment of severe CAC in patients with CKD. A prospective randomized trial with long-term follow-up is needed to identify the optimal treatment for these patients. PMID: 28089999 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Omani patients treated with PCI were much younger than Western patients with a high prevalence of risk factors. Successful PCI was achieved in a large percentage of patients with a low incidence of in-hospital complications and mortality. At one-year follow-up, the majority patients had a good clinical outcome. PMID: 28042404 [PubMed]

Int J Angiol DOI: 10.1055/s-0036-1593828Stent thrombosis (ST) is a rare but devastating complication after percutaneous coronary intervention. Newer generation drug-eluting stents (DES) and newer antiplatelet therapies have been shown to decrease the incidence of ST, but we continue to observe ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) due to ST in contemporary practice. A retrospective analysis of 527 patients who presented with STEMI was performed; 57 patients (11%) with angiographically confirmed ST were compared with the patients with STEMI due to de novo lesion. The type of previous stent, the timing of ST, an...

In conclusion, the main indication for DEB seems to be small vessel disease, especially in clinical scenarios in which a contraindication to dual antiplatelet therapy exists. The main approach should be a DEB-only strategy with only provisional bailout stenting, which has shown interesting results in different clinical scenarios. In general, larger randomized controlled studies with prolonged follow-up comparing DEB with best in class DES are warranted. Technical developments of DEBs including the use of different drugs might potentially improve the efficacy of such treatment.
