This study aimed to evaluate effects of remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) on myocardial injury in patients undergoing off-pump coronary artery bypass graft surgery (OPCABG). Methods: Sixty-five patients scheduled for the OPCABG were randomly assigned to control (n = 32) or RIPC group (n = 33). All patients received general anesthesia. Before the surgical incision, RIPC was induced on an upper limb with repeated 5-min ischemia and 5-min reperfusion for four times. Blood samples were collected from right internal jugular vein. Plasma levels of IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, TNF-α, cTnT, HFABP, IMA, and MDA were detected at p...

In this study, we seek to examine the predictive value of MCV in MDS pt diagnosed with and without CV disease.Methods: After IRB approval, 84 pt diagnosed with low-risk MDS (LR-MDS) were included for analysis. Median MCV was estimated in all LR-MDS patients to: (1) Examine overall survival (OS) in LR-MDS with and without CV disease; and (2) Detect differential OS in LR-MDS pt with and without CV disease according to baseline predictors such as hemoglobin, platelet count, RDW, platelet count, absolute neutrophil count (ANC), blast count, WHO classification and ferritin. CV was defined as the presence of one or combination o...

ConclusionsIn this study with staged CAS followed by cardiac surgery, we confirm previously reported event ‐free survival rates and identify several risk factors for the composite outcome. Future studies are needed to confirm the importance of the identified risk factors and to assess their predictive ability.

Abstract ObjectivesTo evaluate the association of diabetes mellitus (DM) with clinical and angiographic characteristics and outcomes of patients with popliteal and infrapopliteal peripheral arterial disease (PAD) undergoing peripheral vascular intervention (PVI). BackgroundClinical features and outcomes in patients with DM and popliteal or infrapopliteal PAD undergoing PVI are not well described. MethodsUsing the data from the laser in popliteal and infrapopliteal stenosis study, we retrospectively examined the association of diabetes with clinical and angiographic characteristics and risk adjusted short‐ and intermediat...

Abstract ObjectiveTreatment for lifestyle limiting claudication (LLC) that is due to infra‐inguinal peripheral artery disease relies on either bypass, angioplasty, and/or stenting. Given the enthusiasm and shift toward more endovascular therapy for treatment of LLC, we sought to analyze whether octogenarians benefit from infra‐inguinal interventions in the same manner as their younger counterparts. MethodsWe identified all patients admitted for elective treatment of LLC from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample from 2003 to 2012, who received open surgical or endovascular intervention for infra‐inguinal peripheral arteria...

ConclusionsCAS followed by OHS is a safe and effective treatment for patients with concomitant carotid and cardiac disease within 1‐year follow up. The interval between CAS and OHS, congestive heart failure, and renal insufficiency could obviously influence the 1‐year results.

Abstract AimsEmpirically, transfemoral (TF) approach is the first choice for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). We aimed to investigate whether transubclavian (TSc) and TF approaches present comparable major outcomes according to current evidence. MethodsWe systematically searched PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane database for studies with symptomatic aortic stenosis patients who underwent TAVI through TF or TSc/axillary access from January/2006 to January/2017. Searched terms were: (“aortic stenosis” OR “transcatheter aortic” OR “TAVI” OR “TAVR”) and (“transfem...

Abstract BackgroundTranscatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is an alternative to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) for patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis (AS) who are at intermediate and high risk for surgery. Commercial use of TAVR has expanded to patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD). ObjectivesCompare in‐hospital outcomes of TAVR versus SAVR in ESRD patients requiring hemodialysis (HD). MethodsESRD patients on HD undergoing TAVR (n = 328) or SAVR (n = 697) between 2012 and 2014 were identified in the National Inpatient Sample (NIS). Propensity‐score matchi...
