A Novel guide extension assisted stenting technique for coronary bifurcation lesions
World J Cardiol. 2021 Jun 26;13(6):155-162. doi: 10.4330/wjc.v13.i6.155.ABSTRACTA challenging technical scenario frequently encountered in a percutaneous coronary intervention of a coronary bifurcation lesion (CBL) is stent implantation of only the stenosed segment without compromising the other two normal segments in non-true bifurcation lesions. Another is precise stent implantation covering the side branch ostium without leaving excessive stent metal at the other two segments of a bifurcation lesion in complex true bifurcation lesions. The aim of this study was to describe a novel stenting technique for both non-true an...

Is branched-chain amino acid nutritional supplementation beneficial or detrimental in heart failure?
World J Cardiol. 2021 Jun 26;13(6):163-169. doi: 10.4330/wjc.v13.i6.163.ABSTRACTSarcopenia or cachexia is often complicated in heart failure. Nutritional support, particularly branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) supplementation, is a candidate treatment for improving sarcopenia or cachexia in elderly patients. However, the efficacy of BCAA supplementation in patients with heart failure has not been established, and the issue is comparatively more complex. Indeed, there are conflicting reports on the efficacy of BCAA supplementation. The evidence for including BCAA supplementation in treating patients with heart failure was re...

Cardiogenic shock in the setting of acute myocardial infarction: Another area of sex disparity?
World J Cardiol. 2021 Jun 26;13(6):170-176. doi: 10.4330/wjc.v13.i6.170.ABSTRACTCardiogenic shock in the setting of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) carries significant morbidity and mortality, despite advances in pharmacological, mechanical and reperfusion therapies. Studies suggest that there is evidence of sex disparities in the risk profile, management, and outcomes of cardiogenic shock complicating AMI. Compared with men, women tend to have more comorbidities, greater variability in symptom presentation and are less likely to receive timely revascularization and mechanical circulatory support.

Novel economic treatment for coronary wire perforation: A case report
CONCLUSION: The use of a balloon remnant for embolization in coronary perforation presents a simple, efficient and cost-effective method for managing coronary perforations and may be an alternative for achieving hemostasis and preventing poor outcome. Prevention remains the most important part with meticulous attention to the distal wire position, particularly with hydrophilic wires.PMID:34194636 | PMC:PMC8223700 | DOI:10.4330/wjc.v13.i6.177 (Source: World Journal of Cardiology)

Another is precise stent implantation covering the side branch ostium without leaving excessive stent metal at the other two segments of a bifurcation lesion in complex true bifurcation lesions. The aim of this study was to describe a novel stenting technique for both non-true an...

Is branched-chain amino acid nutritional supplementation beneficial or detrimental in heart failure?
World J Cardiol. 2021 Jun 26;13(6):163-169. doi: 10.4330/wjc.v13.i6.163.ABSTRACTSarcopenia or cachexia is often complicated in heart failure. Nutritional support, particularly branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) supplementation, is a candidate treatment for improving sarcopenia or cachexia in elderly patients. However, the efficacy of BCAA supplementation in patients with heart failure has not been established, and the issue is comparatively more complex. Indeed, there are conflicting reports on the efficacy of BCAA supplementation. The evidence for including BCAA supplementation in treating patients with heart failure was re...

Cardiogenic shock in the setting of acute myocardial infarction: Another area of sex disparity?
World J Cardiol. 2021 Jun 26;13(6):170-176. doi: 10.4330/wjc.v13.i6.170.ABSTRACTCardiogenic shock in the setting of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) carries significant morbidity and mortality, despite advances in pharmacological, mechanical and reperfusion therapies. Studies suggest that there is evidence of sex disparities in the risk profile, management, and outcomes of cardiogenic shock complicating AMI. Compared with men, women tend to have more comorbidities, greater variability in symptom presentation and are less likely to receive timely revascularization and mechanical circulatory support. These factors might exp...

Novel economic treatment for coronary wire perforation: A case report
CONCLUSION: The use of a balloon remnant for embolization in coronary perforation presents a simple, efficient and cost-effective method for managing coronary perforations and may be an alternative for achieving hemostasis and preventing poor outcome. Prevention remains the most important part with meticulous attention to the distal wire position, particularly with hydrophilic wires.PMID:34194636 | PMC:PMC8223700 | DOI:10.4330/wjc.v13.i6.177 (Source: World Journal of Cardiology)
