AbstractBecause the phenomenon of no reflow has a poor prognosis in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients and the atherogenic index of plasma (AIP) has been shown to be a strong predictor of coronary heart disease, we aimed to investigate the relationship between AIP and no-reflow in patients with acute STEMI who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). A total of 763 consecutive STEMI patients (648 men; mean age 58  ± 12 years) who underwent primary PCI were recruited for this study. The patients were classified into a reflow group (n = 537) ...

In conclusion, PCI is an effective method of revascularization in patients with ET; but it may be associated with a higher rate of complications including stent thrombus and restenosis. PMID: 31502506 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study sought to explore the relationship between cytochrome P450 2C19 (CYP2C19) *2/*3 polymorphisms and the development of coronary heart disease (CHD), and to evaluate the influence of the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on the occurrence of adverse clinical events in CHD patients. A total of 231 consecutive patients candidate for percutaneous coronary intervention genotyped for CYP2C19*2 (681G>A) and *3 (636G>A) polymorphisms were enrolled. The adverse clinical events were recorded during a follow-up period of 14 months. The incidence of CHD, according to coronary angiography, was significantly higher (...

This study observed the incidence of in-stent restenosis (ISR) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and discusses the risk factors of ISR based on clinical data, coronary angiography, and stent features, to provide a theoretical basis for the prevention and treatment of ISR. MATERIAL AND METHODS We selected 1132 cases who received stent implantation at the Shaanxi People's Hospital from June 2014 to June 2016 and were followed up by coronary angiography within 1 year. Based on coronary angiography, the cases were divided into ISR and non-ISR groups. ISR was defined as a reduction in lumen diameter by over 50% aft...

Conclusions: The high prevalence of undiagnosed COPD and relevant pulmonary function impairments in this cohort of patients with AMI, and the fact that pulmonary disease was untreated in the majority of COPD patients, highlight the importance of a general pulmonary workup of patients with AMI. Furthermore, patients with CHD should undergo screening for COPD, given the fact that COPD patients had larger infarction size.Respiration

Conclusion: Qi deficiency and blood stasis syndrome was closely associated with post-PCI bleeding, implying that this syndrome might serve as a powerful predictor of GI bleeding as well as a potential supplement to the current predicting and scoring system of bleeding such as CRUSADE.

AbstractPurpose of the ReviewCoronary artery disease is a major cause of mortality and morbidity in the world, and PCI and CABG account for over a million procedures performed annually in the USA. The goal of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is to achieve complete revascularization (CR) if at all possible. However, restenosis and stent thrombosis (ST) remain the Achilles heel of contemporary PCI with restenosis rates between 10 and 30% with bare metal stents to 5 –15% after drug-eluting stents and ST rates of around 0.8 vs 1.2%, respectively. Routine angiography after...

Authors: Luo X, Shi W, Zhang X, Yang X, Wang W, Zeng C, Wang H Abstract An elderly male patient with coronary heart disease underwent coronary angiography, which revealed bilateral severe coronary artery stenosis. Four stents were implanted, and at 5 h post-surgery, typical hemorrhagic shock appeared. Echocardiography verified heavy bleeding in the right thoracic cavity. Emergency angiography excluded injury or perforation of the coronary artery, aorta, right subclavian artery and brachiocephalic artery. Considering the patient's history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and severe cough during the operation...
