J-chronic total occlusion score predictive capacity for percutaneous coronary intervention success of chronic total occlusion: Results from a European single center cohort with progressive experience over time
Cardiol J. 2021 Jun 14. doi: 10.5603/CJ.a2021.0058. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Several scoring systems have been described to assess the level of difficulty and to predict the probability of success of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of chronic total occlusion (CTO). The J-CTO score was initially developed to correlate CTO complexity with guidewire time crossing through the lesion within 30 min. Moreover, almost all scoring systems represent procedures performed by seasoned operators. Herein, this study sought to evaluate the predictive capacity of J-CTO for PCI success in a European single-center c...

A new approach to ticagrelor-based de-escalation of antiplatelet therapy after acute coronary syndrome. A rationale for a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, investigator-initiated, multicenter clinical study
Cardiol J. 2021 Jun 7. doi: 10.5603/CJ.a2021.0056. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe risk of ischemic events gradually decreases after acute coronary syndrome (ACS), reaching a stable level after 1 month, while the risk of bleeding remains steady during the whole period of dual antiplatelet treatment (DAPT). Several de-escalation strategies of antiplatelet treatment aiming to enhance safety of DAPT without depriving it of its efficacy have been evaluated so far. We hypothesized that reduction of the ticagrelor maintenance dose 1 month after ACS and its continuation until 12 months after ACS may improve adherence to antipla...

CONCLUSIONS: The results do not allow unambiguous recommendation of PoCUS as a predictor of resuscitation outcomes and further studies based on a large number of patients with full standardization of operators, their training and procedures performed were necessary.PMID:33942277 | DOI:10.5603/CJ.a2021.0044 (Source: Cardiology Journal)

Characteristics and outcomes of in-hospital cardiac arrest in COVID-19. A systematic review and meta-analysis
CONCLUSIONS: Compared to the pre-pandemic period, in hospital cardiac arrest in COVID-19 patients was numerically higher but had statistically similar outcomes.PMID:33942278 | DOI:10.5603/CJ.a2021.0043 (Source: Cardiology Journal)

The impact of tricuspid annular geometry on outcome after percutaneous edge-to-edge repair for severe tricuspid regurgitation
Cardiol J. 2021 May 4. doi: 10.5603/CJ.a2021.0046. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Percutaneous tricuspid repair using the edge-to-edge technique is a novel treatment option. More data are needed to better understand which aspects predict a favorable outcome METHODS: Twenty high-risk patients (78.6 ± 8.3 years, EUROScore II 9.1 ± 7.7%, STS score 8.8 ± 4.3) with severe symptomatic tricuspid regurgitation (TR) were treated with the MitraClip® system. All patients underwent standardized pre-, peri-, and post-procedural evaluation. Acute success was defined as successful edge-to-edge repair w...

A Prospective, observational, Italian multi-center registry of self-aPposing ® cOronary Stents in patients presenting with ST-segment Elevation Myocardial InfarcTION: The iPOSITION registry
CONCLUSIONS: The use of an X-position S self-apposing® stent is feasible in STEMI pPCI, with excellent post-procedural results and 1-year outcomes.PMID:33942280 | DOI:10.5603/CJ.a2021.0045 (Source: Cardiology Journal)
