A Resuscitated Case of Acute Myocardial Infarction with both Familial Hypercholesterolemia Phenotype Caused by Possibly Oligogenic Variants of the PCSK9 and ABCG5 Genes and Type I CD36 Deficiency
J Atheroscler Thromb. 2021 Feb 27. doi: 10.5551/jat.58909. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTA 56-year-old postmenopausal woman with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest caused by acute myocardial infraction was successfully resuscitated by intensive treatments and recovered without any neurological disability. She was diagnosed as having familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) based on a markedly elevated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) level and family history of premature coronary artery disease. Genetic testing in her family members showed that a variant of the proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) gene (c...

Elevated Glycated Albumin in Serum Is Associated with Adverse Cardiac Outcomes in Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome Who Underwent Revascularization Therapy
CONCLUSIONS: Elevated GA levels in the serum were associated with poor intermediate-term outcomes in low-risk ACS patients who underwent PCI, especially in patients with preexisting diabetes.PMID:33642440 | DOI:10.5551/jat.61358 (Source: Journal of Atherosclerosis and Thrombosis)

Prevention of Cardiovascular Events with Pitavastatin is Associated with Increased Serum Lipoprotein Lipase Mass Level: Subgroup Analysis of the TOHO-LIP
CONCLUSIONS: Pitavastatin administration reduced CV events more efficaciously than atorvastatin despite similar LDL cholesterol-lowering effect of the two statins. Increased LPL mass during the first year by pitavastatin treatment may be associated with this efficacy.PMID:33642441 | DOI:10.5551/jat.62141 (Source: Journal of Atherosclerosis and Thrombosis)

Association of Age with Mortality Rate after Femoropopliteal Endovascular Therapy for Intermittent Claudication
CONCLUSION: Mortality risk increased with age, but the risk ratio relative to the matched citizens decreased with age. Younger patients had a higher mortality risk relative to the matched citizens, whereas patients aged ≥ 85 years had a lower mortality risk relative to the matched citizens. Younger patients were more likely to accumulate cardiovascular risk factors.PMID:33642442 | DOI:10.5551/jat.62356 (Source: Journal of Atherosclerosis and Thrombosis)

Usefulness of Upstroke Time per Cardiac Cycle for Cardiovascular and All-Cause Mortality Prediction in Patients with Normal Ankle-Brachial Index.
CONCLUSIONS: UTCC is an independent predictor for CV and all-cause mortality in patients with normal ABI. It also has a better additive predictive value of CV and all-cause mortality than ABI and LVEF. Therefore, UTCC is a simple, novel, and useful parameter for identifying high-risk patients with normal ABI.

Recurrent Stroke Incidence and Etiology in Patients with Embolic Stroke of Undetermined Source and Other Stroke Subtypes.
CONCLUSIONS: Although the risk of recurrence was comparable between patients with ESUS and CE and intermediate between patients with LAA and SVD, in the acute admission unit, the risk in outpatients was similar among all subtypes. ESUS was the most recurrent stroke subtype in outpatients with ESUS. The risk of hemorrhagic stroke was significant in patients with SVD and ESUS.

Is Stiffness Parameter β Useful for the Evaluation of Atherosclerosis?~ Its Clinical Implications, Limitations, and Future Perspectives ~. J Atheroscler Thromb. 2021 Feb 13;: Authors: Morioka T, Mori K, Emoto M Abstract Atherosclerosis comprises two components, atherosis and sclerosis, characterized by morphological wall thickening and functional stiffening, respectively, of the arterial wall. In recent years, much interest has been directed to the role of functional changes in large arteries, i.e., increased stiffness or decreased elasticity, on the development of cardiovascular diseases. In fact...

Thrombotic Lesions are Associated with Poor Outcomes after Endovascular Treatment in Patients with Non-Acute Aortoiliac Total Occlusions.
CONCLUSIONS: Thrombotic lesions were associated with 1-year restenosis and all-cause mortality after endovascular treatment for non-acute aortoiliac total occlusions. Endovascular treatment strategies should be carefully planned for patients with thrombotic lesions.
