High-sensitivity C-reactive protein and mean platelet volume as predictive values after percutaneous coronary intervention for long-term clinical outcomes: a comparable and additive study

This study was designed to establish the relationship of high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) and mean platelet volume (MPV) with the development of adverse outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). hsCRP levels and MPV were analysed in 372 patients who underwent PCI, with the primary endpoint as major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events (MACCE): a composite of cardiac death, myocardial infarction (MI), target vessel revascularization (TVR), ischemic stroke and stent thrombosis. During the follow-up period (mean, 25.8 months), there were 21 cardiac deaths, 10 MIs including four stent thrombosis events, seven ischemic strokes and 29 TVRs. The hsCRP cut-off level was set at 0.31 mg/dl using the receiver operating characteristic curve to differentiate between the groups with and without MACCE. The MPV cut-off level was set at 8.00 fl by the receiver operating characteristic curve to differentiate between the groups with and without MACCE. A Kaplan–Meier analysis revealed that the high hsCRP group (≥0.31 mg/dl) had a significantly higher cardiac death and MACCE rate than the low hsCRP group (8.00 fl) had a significantly higher cardiac death and MACCE rate than the low MPV group (≤8.00 fl). Furthermore, the high hsCRP and MPV groups were significantly associated with an increased risk of MACCE. These results show that hsCRP and MPV are predictive markers after PCI for MACCE; they are also additively associated with a higher risk o...

ConclusionLp(a) is an independent predictor of the prevalence of more complex coronary artery lesions (SYNTAX score ≥ 23) in patients with PCI. In addition, our study has shown that Lp(a) has no relationship with long-term cardiovascular outcomes in Chinese patients with PCI.

Authors: Shlofmitz E, Shlofmitz R, Lee MS Abstract The number of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) who mandate additional oral anticoagulant therapy has been increasing. Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) is associated with reduced ischemic events including stent thrombosis, myocardial infarction and stroke following PCI. However, the tradeoff is an increased risk for bleeding while on DAPT. The addition of a novel oral anticoagulant (NOAC) further increases the likelihood of bleeding while on antiplatelet therapy. Thus, the overall risks and benefits for each patient undergoing PCI on NOAC...

AbstractWe sought to investigate the utilization of prasugrel and its association with outcomes relative to clopidogrel in three typical subgroups of ACS in a real-world setting. Prasugrel is superior to clopidogrel for reducing risk of ischemic events in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), but is associated with an increased risk of bleeding complications. PROMETHEUS was a retrospective multicenter observational study of 19,913 ACS patients undergoing PCI from 8 centers in the United States between 2010 and 2013. Major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) were define...

The objective of the present study was to investigate the efficacy and safety of de-escalation in early and late phase after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). We performed a retrospective study of 4678 ACS patients from March 2016 to April 2017 who initially received ticagrelor then de-escalated to clopidogrel and categorized them into Group 1: early phase (1-30 days) and Group 2: late phase (>30 days-1 year) switching groups. The primary efficacy endpoints included cardiovascular death, definite/probable stent thrombosis, myocardial infarction, unplanned revascularization, and stroke. The safety ...

gro G Abstract Background: Combination of dual antiplatelet (DAPT) and oral anticoagulation therapy is required to decrease cardioembolic stroke and stent thrombosis risk in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We compared the safety and efficacy of dabigatran etexilate with vitamin K antagonist (VKA), in combination with DAPT (aspirin plus clopidogrel) treatment in AF patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stenting for ACS. Methods: Consecutive nonvalvular AF patients who received twice-daily dabigatran 110 mg (n = 389) or VKA (n = 510) and D...

ConclusionsThe TICO trial is an ongoing trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of ticagrelor monotherapy following 3-month DAPT exclusively in ACS patients treated with uniform BP-SES. It may provide novel insights regarding the need for adjusted use of DAPT for rebalancing risk–benefit in current practice and changing from the conventional concept of aspirin maintenance to a ticagrelor-based regimen in the management of ACS.
