Economic evaluation of culprit lesion only PCI vs. immediate multivessel PCI in acute myocardial infarction complicated by cardiogenic shock: the CULPRIT-SHOCK trial

ConclusionsThe estimates of cost-effectiveness for CO-PCI vs. MV-PCI have been shown to change depending on the time horizon and type of economic evaluation performed. The results favoured a long-term horizon analysis for avoiding underestimation of QALY gains from the CO-PCI arm.

Authors: Sabet Sarvestani F, Azarpira N Abstract Heart and cerebral infarctions, as two important ischemic diseases, lead to the death of tissues due to inadequate blood supply and high mortality worldwide. These statuses are started via blockage of vessels and depletion of oxygen and nutrients which affected these areas. After reperfusion and restoration of oxygen supply, more severe injury was mediated by multifaceted cascades of inflammation and oxidative stress. microRNAs (miRNAs) as the regulator of biological and pathological pathways can adjust these conditions by interaction with their targets. Also, miRNAs...

CONCLUSION: In this study, no influence of tear substitutes containing different viscosities of hyaluronic acid on the measurement results of optical coherence tomography could be determined. Therefore, 0.1%, 0.2% and 0.3% hyaluronic acid can be applied to the patient to improve the corneal surface before the examination with optical coherence tomography, without influencing the measurement results of optical coherence tomography.

Authors: Siamashvili M, Davis S Abstract INTRODUCTION: Bromocriptine mesylate quick release (QR) is a dopamine D2 receptor agonist and is the only oral, primarily centrally acting drug that can be used for the treatment of adults with type 2 diabetes. AREAS COVERED: The authors describe current recommendations on the use of bromocriptine mesylate QR. Major efficacy and safety parameters of the late phase trials, including The Cycloset Safety Trial, have been identified and presented. EXPERT OPINION: Efficacy of bromocriptine mesylate QR monotherapy appears to be low but is compensated by favorable safety pr...

In this study, benefits of minimized bypass in CABG were evaluated under particular consideration of patient body mass index and surgeon impact. From 2004 to 2014, 5164 patients underwent coronary bypass surgery (CABG). Conventional cardiopulmonary bypass (CCPB) was used in 2376 patients, minimized cardiopulmonary bypass (MCPB) in 2788 cases. Multivariate regression models were used in the entire cohort and in a propensity score-matched subgroup after expert CABG to figure out clinical differences such as mortality, postoperative renal function, and thromboembolic events. Overall mortality was 1.5% (n = 41) i...

Conclusion Despite advances in the treatment of myocardial infarction, particularly reperfusion techniques, and medical care in intensive care units, cardiogenic shock mortality in acute phase of myocardial infarction remains high. Renal failure, late onset of shock, hyperglycemia and the anterior territory of MI were the major predictive of hospital mortality. A multidisciplinary approach including medical actors and pre-hospital centers specialized in the treatment of this condition is actually necessary. The author hereby declares no conflict of interest
