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...

AbstractAlthough there is accumulating evidence for the usefulness of imaging-guided percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), there are few studies for acute coronary syndrome (ACS), and the impact of the frequency of use has not been well addressed. From the Kumamoto Intervention Conference Study; a Japanese registry comprising 17 institutions, consecutive patients undergoing successful PCI from April 2008 through March 2014 were enrolled. Subjects were divided into two groups: imaging-guided PCI and angiography-guided PCI. Clinical outcome was a composite of cardiac death, non-fatal myocardial infarction, and stent thro...

Rationale: Acute myocardial infarction is the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in a patient with polycythemia vera (PV). However, the benefit of various percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) technique on the patient with PV is relatively unexplored. Patient concern: A 46-year-old woman presented to the primary hospital complained about new-onset typical chest pain. Echocardiography examination showed inferior ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMIs) and increased cardiac markers. Complete blood count showed elevated hemoglobin, white blood cell, and platelet. Diagnosis: Coronary angiography revealed s...

Abstract Background: Evidence available suggests that periprocedural bradycardia negates the benefit of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) and worsens the prognosis of patients with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Objective: To investigate the risk factors of periprocedural bradycardia during PPCI in patients with acute STEMI. Methods: We enrolled 2,536 acute STEMI patients who had PPCI from November 2007 to June 2018 in Beijing Anzhen Hospital, Capital Medical University. We divided all patients into two groups according to periprocedural bradycardia (preoperative heart ...

CONCLUSIONS: Despite the greater inherent complexity, procedural and long-term clinical outcomes following PCI of distal LM trifurcations with everolimus-eluting stents in a modest-sized cohort from the EXCEL trial were similar compared with treatment of distal LM bifurcation disease without trifurcations. These findings support PCI as a treatment strategy for selected patients with distal LM trifurcation disease. PMID: 31793882 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: The present analysis suggests that CBL-PCI with DBS may be associated with similar 1-year clinical and angiographic outcomes compared with conventional CBL-PCI strategies. However, the low quality of evidence and limited follow-up warrant further studies to ascertain any significant differences in patient-important outcomes before the adoption of DBS into routine CBL-PCI practice.

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]

In this study, we aimed to investigate the predictive value of hyperglycemia on thrombus burden in nondiabetic patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) who underwent to primer percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI). We enrolled 619 nondiabetic patients with STEMI who received PPCI. Patients were divided two groups according to thrombus burden. Stress hyperglycemia was determined as blood glucose concentration more than 180 mg/dl and angiographic coronary thrombus burden was scored based on thrombolysis in myocardial infarction thrombus grades. Patients with thrombus grades 4 were defined as lar...
