METHODS: A total of 137 consecutive patients admitted with STEMI and CS at t...

HEART attack symptoms include difficulty breathing, severe chest pain, and an overwhelming feeling of anxiety. But you could also be at risk of a deadly myocardial infarction and heart disease if you develop any of these "unusual" signs. Should you consider speaking to a doctor about heart attack symptoms?

Abstract Postoperative coronary angiography offers the basis for prompt management of ischemic complications after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Little is known about the effects of postoperative angiography on renal function. The current study aims to assess the incidence and risk factors for acute kidney injury (AKI) following postoperative coronary angiography. A total of 221 CABG patients (mean age, 67  ± 8 years) underwent postoperative coronary angiography due to perioperative myocardial infarction (PMI). AKI was defined according to the KDIGO criteria. Logistic regression analyses...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is strongly linked to chronic kidney disease (CKD) and both of these conditions contribute to poor cardiovascular outcomes. We evaluated the impact of renal failure on major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in AF, and predictive value of the 2MACE score in this post-hoc analysis of the AMADEUS trial. The primary endpoint was MACE (composite of myocardial infarction, cardiac revascularisation and cardiovascular mortality). Secondary endpoints included the composite of stroke, major bleeding and non-cardiovascular mortality, and each of the specific outcomes separately.

We sought to investigate whether a screening diagnosis for dementia (SDD) in this high-risk population may predict unfavorable long-term clinical outcomes. METHODS: 142 patients following HF decompensation requiring hospitalization were enrolled. Within a median time of 55 months all patients were screened for dementia w...

Authors: Su W, Wang M, Zhu J, Li W, Ding X, Chen H, Li HW, Zhao XQ Abstract Increased body mass index (BMI) is a well-established risk factor for cardiovascular disease; however, patients with elevated BMI, in comparison to those with low BMI, seem to have better survival, a phenomenon reported as "obesity paradox," which remains controversial. We investigated the effect of BMI on cardiac mortality post acute myocardial infarction (AMI).In this analysis, 3562 AMI patients were included and classified into four groups based on BMI values. The primary endpoint was cardiac death. Compared to normoweight grou...
