The effects of polymorphisms in CYP2C19, ATP-binding cassette transporter B1, and paraoxonase-1 on clopidogrel treatment of Uygur patients following percutaneous coronary intervention

ConclusionThe CYP2C19 IMs, PMs, and the number of targeted vessels are essential factors associated with MACE risk in dual clopidogrel-treated Uygur population with ACS following PCI. These data provide valuable insights into the genetic polymorphisms affecting clopidogrel response among minority groups in China.

CONCLUSIONS: Age and CKD were significantly associated with anticoagulation prescription in patients with AF. Further studies on the impact of geriatric syndromes on anticoagulation prescription and outcomes in older adults are needed with specific guidelines for patients with geriatric syndromes and AF.PMID:34714212 | DOI:10.1080/03007995.2021.2000717

AbstractObjectiveOur objective was to investigate the predictors of falls requiring a visit to the emergency department in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (AF) receiving different types of anticoagulants and to investigate the clinical consequences of falling in the same population.MethodsA total of 1217 patients with nonvalvular AF from two institutions were retrospectively evaluated. Each patient underwent a physical examination, and clinical histories and medication profiles were taken from each patient at baseline.ResultsThe median age of our cohort was 71 years; 52.3% were males, and 86.1% of patients we...

Int J Angiol DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1708477Atrial fibrillation (AF), the most prevalent arrhythmic disease, tends to foster thrombus formation due to hemodynamic disturbances, leading to severe disabling and even fatal thromboembolic diseases. Meanwhile, patients with AF may also present with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and coronary artery disease (CAD) requiring stenting, which creates a clinical dilemma considering that majority of such patients will likely receive oral anticoagulants (OACs) for stroke prevention and require additional double antiplatelet treatment (DAPT) to reduce recurrent cardiac events and in-stent th...

In conclusion, SG is an effective procedure for weight loss with a low risk for the patient to develop malnutrition. In terms of post-operative care, regular check-ups are vital to ensure a positive outcome as well as for the early detection of possible issues. Reflux and weight regain are common issues with SG in a long-term follow-up; thus, patients should be selected carefully for this procedure. PMID: 32359172 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: In ischemic stroke or TIA patients with platelet count within normal range, platelet count may be a qualified predictor for long-term recurrent stroke, mortality, and poor functional outcome. Introduction Platelets exert a critical role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerotic complications of cardio-cerebrovascular disease, contributing to thrombus formation, and embolism (1, 2). Previous literature reported that platelets of various size and density are produced by megakaryocytes of different size and stages of maturation in different clinical conditions, suggesting various platelet patterns in differen...
