Quality of acute heart failure treatment in France: Data from REseau Nord-Alpin des Urgences (RENAU).
CONCLUSIONS: The early management of patients with acute pulmonary oedema (as a marker of acute heart failure) in France in 2013 was quite different to recommendations published in 2015. A programme to implement the new recommendations is in place, and a repeat evaluation will be conducted in 2017.

[Differences between hypertension in Metropolitan France compared to Overseas France Departments and Regions (DOM-ROM)].
CONCLUSIONS: There are differences between France Overseas Regions and Territories (DOM-ROMs) and Metropolitan France in terms of the prevalence, knowledge, treatment and control of hypertension, and these vary according to sex. For men, the prevalence and treatment of hypertension differ very little when considering a population of workers or employees in both regions. On the other hand, for women, the prevalence of hypertension is higher in the French Antilles-Guiana. This difference is not fully explained by the higher prevalence of obesity observed among female employees in the French Antilles-Guiana. For these patient...

[Fenestration of a spontaneous coronary hematoma with life-threatening dissection: A case of recurrent and multivessel spontaneous coronary artery dissections in a young female].
Abstract The fenestration of a coronary artery hematoma is a therapeutic option in case of a life-threatening spontaneous coronary artery dissection, if the conservative treatment is not feasible. Here we present the case of a 34-year-old woman who presented three spontaneous coronary artery dissections, on three different arteries, over a period of twenty-one months. The diagnosis was confirmed by endovascular imaging. During an acute coronary syndrome, emergent percutaneous coronary intervention of the left anterior descending artery was performed, successfully, by a fenestration of the hematoma, using an AngioS...

[Left main PCI: Current treatment].
te; G Abstract Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of left main coronary artery has become a strong alternative to coronary artery bypass surgery in selected patients. The treatment decision must be validated by the Heart Team. Several PCI techniques of distal left main PCI have been described but the KISSS (Keep it simple, swift and safe) principle recommended by the European Bifurcation Club must be kept in mind. Provisional stenting is the first-line technique. A two-stent strategy may be needed in the presence of≥2.5mm side branch diameter and significant ostial stenosis as well as in presumably diffic...

[Vasospastic angina: An under-diagnosed pathology].
Abstract The clinical and physiopathological clinical entity known as spastic angina or variant angina has been long documented. It remains, however, an under-estimated condition, which is insufficiently diagnosed and explored. This pathology is associated with severe complications such as heart rhythm disorders, which may potentially result in ventricular fibrillation and cause sudden death. In Japan, this condition occurs more frequently and is better documented. Stimulation tests are also carried out more often and have a higher positivity rate than in France where vasospastic angina is less frequently reported...

[Hot issues in bifurcation lesions PCI in 2019].
Abstract Coronary bifurcations are involved in 15-20% of all percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) and remain one of the most challenging lesions in interventional cardiology in terms of procedural success rate as well as long-term cardiac events. The optimal management of bifurcation lesions is still debated but involves careful assessment, planning and a sequential provisional approach. The preferential strategy for PCI of bifurcation lesions remains to use main vessel (MV) stenting with a proximal optimisation technique (POT) and provisional side branch (SB) stenting as a preferred approach.

The first case was admitted for an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest due to ventricular fibrillation. The patient died from neurologic consequences of the cardiac arrest, despite a successful prehospital thrombolysis, followed by a percutaneous angioplasty of the right coronary artery. The second case occurred after a complex percutaneous angioplasty of the right coronary artery, complicated by a total occlusion of a right marginal branch. These two cases illustrate the limits of the ECG for the di...

[Comparison of the prognostic value of different clinical, angiographic and scintigraphic scores in stable coronary patients after acute coronary syndrome].
Abstract INTRODUCTION: To date, there is no consensus regarding the follow-up of asymptomatic coronary patients with an intermediate risk of events. Indeed, most of cardiovascular events (CVE) occur in asymptomatic patients, hence the clinician's interest in establishing risk stratification scores. In asymptomatic patient, the risk assessment after acute coronary syndrome (ACS) can currently be based on 3 types of score: clinical with, for example, the REACH score; angiographic with the residual SYNTAX score; imaging with different scintigraphic scores. These scores differ widely in terms of evaluation criteria an...

[Optimal duration of dual antiplatelet therapy after coronary stent placement or acute coronary syndrome. Is customisation possible?]
Abstract The recommended 6-month dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) after coronary angioplasty with implantation of a drug eluting stent is based on solid evidence, but must take into account continuous improvements in stent technology leading to reduced thrombogenicity. In stable patients with a high hemorrhagic risk, it is possible to reduce DAPT duration at 3 months without significant increase in the risks of ischemic events or stent thrombosis. Further reduction toward a 1-month DAPT is likely to involve new strategies of stopping aspirin at 1 month, and continuing long-term monotherapy with inhibitors of ...

[Why not integrate the spectral tissue Doppler E/(e'xs') in the multiparametric assessment of cardiovascular diseases by transthoracic Doppler echocardiography?]
Abstract Assessment of left ventricular diastolic function by transthoracic Doppler echocardiography is based on a multiparametric approach which includes the spectral tissue Doppler-derived E/e'. Recently, a new Doppler index, E/(e'xs'), which combines E/e' with a spectral tissue Doppler-derived marker of systolic function, s', has been proposed in noninvasive assessment of left ventricular myocardial dysfunction. Current literature provides evidence that E/(e'xs') has good correlation with NT proBNP levels and invasive left ventricular end-diastolic pressure, both used as markers of left ventricular myocardial d...

CONCLUSION: After this assessment, five athletes were not allowed to practice sport. This study shows the necessity of a thorough cardiological assessment of athletes with ventricular arrhythmia in order to detect underlying heart disease and prevent sudden death in this young apparently healthy population.

[Impact of occupational noise in the development of arterial hypertension: A survey carried out in a company of electricity production].
CONCLUSION: Occupational chronic noise exposure was associated with higher levels of SBP, DBP, and the risk of hypertension. These findings indicate that effective and feasible measures should be implemented to reduce the risk of hypertension caused by occupational noise exposure in companies of electricity production.

[Elderly patients with coronary artery disease are at high bleeding risk].
Abstract Bleeding complications are frequent in coronary artery disease patients and are associated with increased mortality. Among clinical factors increasing the risk of bleeding, age appears to be a major determinant, whatever the clinical presentation (stable disease, acute coronary syndrome, PCI). Evidence of the role of age comes from the weight given to age in most existing bleedingrisk scores. PMID: 30463684 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Annales de Cardiologie et d'Angeiologie)

[Radial approach in the elderly].
eacute;gu J Abstract Due to the steady increase in life expectancy, the number of patients over 80 years of age proposed for coronary angioplasty is increasing significantly. The elderly patient is a patient at high cardiovascular risk and high risk of bleeding; whose severity of prognosis depends of comorbidities. The radial approach presents particularities and technical difficulties that have to be known in this part of the population, but reduce vascular and hemorrhagic complications, as well as mortality. Because of greater safety, the radial approach is therefore the first choice for the elderly. PMID: ...

Vascular dementia encoding in the French nationwide discharge summary database (PMSI): Variability over the 2007-2017 period.
CONCLUSION: These data suggest a slight decrease in hospital stays for VaD, possibly related to better control of cardiovascular risk factors. They also suggest that the coding should be consistent with the evolution of diagnostic criteria. PMID: 30409382 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Annales de Cardiologie et d'Angeiologie)

[Medico-legal implications of coronary angioplasty among seniors].
Abstract It's commonplace to declare that seniors are more fragile, because of a higher rate of comorbidities and complex coronary lesions. However, they take great benefit from angioplasty during acute coronary syndrome, with a higher rate of complications. Based on the study of claims reported to a French medical insurer, it is found that people over 75 years old among victims of interventional cardiology accidents is proportional to the population of seniors in the French population (around 10%). Conversely, the mortality of those seniors was much higher than patients under 75 (83% versus 30%). A strategy, whic...
