Lipid-Core Plaque Assessed by Near-Infrared Spectroscopy and Procedure Related Microvascular Injury.
This study is pilot retrospective observational study. We analyzed 39 patients who performed NIRS before and after PCI, while fractional flow reserve, thermo-dilution coronary flow reserve (CFR) and IMR were measured after PCI. The maximum value of lipid core burden index (LCBI) for any of the 4-mm segments at the culprit lesion (culprit LCBI4mm) was calculated at the culprit lesion. We divided the patients into 2 groups using a cutoff of culprit LCBI4mm ≥500. RESULTS: Mean pre-PCI LCBI was 333±196 and mean post-PCI IMR was 20±14 U. Post-PCI IMR was higher (15.6±7.3 vs. 42.6±17.6 U, p

Two-dimensional Echocardiographic Assessment of Myocardial Strain: Important Echocardiographic Parameter Readily Useful in Clinical Field.
Authors: Park JH Abstract Echocardiography is the first and is the most-available imaging modality for many cardiovascular diseases, and echocardiographic parameters can give much important information for diagnosis, treatment, and prognostic evaluations. Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) is the most commonly used echocardiographic parameter for left ventricular (LV) systolic function. Although LVEF is used routinely in daily practice, it is calculated from volumetric change without representing true myocardial properties. Recently, strain echocardiography has been used to objectively measure myocardial def...

Optimization of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention Using Optical Coherence Tomography.
Authors: Lee CH, Hur SH Abstract Compared to the luminogram obtained by angiography, intravascular modalities produce cross-sectional images of coronary arteries with a far greater spatial resolution. It is capable of accurately determining the vessel size and plaque morphology. It also eliminates some disadvantages such as contrast streaming, foreshortening, vessel overlap, and angle dependency inherent to angiography. Currently, the development of its system and the visualization of coronary arteries has shown significant advancement. Of those, optical coherence tomography (OCT) makes it possible to obtain high-r...

Risk Factor Management for Atrial Fibrillation.
Authors: Joung B Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia in the general population. Many cardiovascular diseases and concomitant conditions increase the risk of the development of AF, recurrent AF, and AF-associated complications. Knowledge of these factors and their management is hence important for the optimal management of patients with AF. Recent studies have suggested that lowering the blood pressure threshold can improve the patients' outcome. Moreover, adverse events associated with a longer duration of hypertension can be prevented through strict blood pressure cont...

Tachycardia induced Cardiomyopathy.
Authors: Kim DY, Kim SH, Ryu KH Abstract Recent studies on radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) in atrial fibrillation show its effectiveness in heart failure (HF) patients; hence, tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy (T-CMP) is gaining attention. Tachycardia-mediated cardiomyopathy is a reversible left ventricular (LV) dysfunction, which can be induced by any tachyarrhythmia. Early recognition of T-CMP with appropriate treatment of the arrhythmia culprit will lead to the recovery of LV function. Patients with tachycardia and LV dysfunction should be suspected of having T-CMP, with or without established etiology ...

Clinical Significance and Therapeutic Implication of Nocturnal Hypertension: Relationship between Nighttime Blood Pressure and Quality of Sleep.

Out-of-office BP measurement such as ambulatory BP monitoring and home BP monitoring is now widely utilized to rule out white-coat hypertension, to detect masked hypertension, to evaluate the effects of antihypertensive medication, to analyze diurnal BP variation, and to increase drug adherence. Nocturnal hypertension has been neglected in the management of hypertension despite of its clinical significance. Nighttime BP...

Clinical Pearls of Venoarterial Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation for Cardiogenic Shock.
Authors: Choi MS, Sung K, Cho YH Abstract Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a technique that uses a pump to drain blood from a body, circulate blood through a membrane lung, and return the oxygenated blood back into the body. Venoarterial (VA) ECMO is a simplified version of the heart-lung machine that assists native pulmonary and/or cardiac function. VA ECMO is composed of a drainage cannula in the venous system and a return cannula in the arterial system. Because VA ECMO can increase tissue perfusion by increasing the arterial blood flow, it is used to treat medically refractory cardiogenic shock or c...

The Role of Novel Oral Anticoagulants and Antiplatelet Therapy after Percutaneous Coronary Intervention: Individualizing Therapy to Optimize Outcomes.
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...

Current revascularization strategies for patients with significant LMCA disease include coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), both of which have a range of advantages and disadvantages. In general, PCI is associated with a lower rate of periprocedural adverse events and provides more rapid recovery, w...
