Multi‐modal CT in acute stroke: wait for a serum creatinine before giving intravenous contrast? No!
ConclusionsThe incidence of CIN is low when MMCT is used routinely to assess acute stroke patients. In this population, CIN was a biochemical phenomenon that did not have clinical manifestations, cause chronic kidney disease, require dialysis, or negatively impact on 90‐day mRS outcomes. Renal profiling and waiting for a baseline serum‐creatinine are an unnecessary delay to emergency reperfusion treatment.

210 * contemporary approach of thoraco-abdominal aortic repair using moderate to deep hypothermia combined with target reconstruction of the adamkiewicz artery
Conclusion: Moderate to deep hypothermia combined with target reconstruction of the Adamkiewicz artery brings satisfactory outcomes in thoraco-abdominal aortic repair, especially for spinal cord protection.

Subarachnoid Hemorrhage as the Initial Neurologic Manifestation in Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (P6.014)
Conclusion: Upon review of the literature, ischemic infarction and intracerebral hemorrhage are uncommon complications of TTP. Our case demonstrates a unique case of subarachnoid hemorrhage as the initial neurological manifestation of TTP.Disclosure: Dr. Wei has nothing to disclose. Dr. Ramesh has nothing to disclose.

Effects of Withdrawing Versus Continuing Renin-Angiotensin Blockers on Incidence of Acute Kidney Injury in Patients with Renal Insufficiency Undergoing Cardiac Catheterization: Results from the CAPTAIN Trial
Conclusion In patients with moderate renal insufficiency undergoing cardiac catheterization, withholding ACEI/ARB reduced (without statistical significance) the incidence of contrast-induced AKI. Additionally, a lower rise in post procedural creatinine levels was also noted. This low cost intervention could be considered when referring a patient for cardiac catheterization.

Recent thoraco-abdominal aortic repair outcomes using moderate-to-deep hypothermia combined with targeted reconstruction of the Adamkiewicz artery
CONCLUSIONS Moderate-to-deep hypothermia combined with targeted reconstruction of the AKA provided satisfactory outcomes with thoraco-abdominal aortic repair, particularly for spinal cord protection.

Effects of withdrawing vs continuing renin-angiotensin blockers on incidence of acute kidney injury in patients with renal insufficiency undergoing cardiac catheterization: Results from the Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Inhibitor/Angiotensin Receptor Blocker and Contrast Induced Nephropathy in Patients Receiving Cardiac Catheterization (CAPTAIN) trial
Conclusion In this pilot study of patients with moderate renal insufficiency undergoing cardiac catheterization, with-holding ACEI/ARB resulted in a non-significant reduction in contrast-induced AKI and a significant reduction in post-procedural rise of creatinine. This low cost intervention could be considered when referring a patient for cardiac catheterization.

Is emergency and salvage coronary artery bypass grafting justified? The Nordic Emergency/Salvage coronary artery bypass grafting study ADULT CARDIAC
CONCLUSIONS Early mortality in patients undergoing emergent and salvage CABG is substantial, especially in salvage patients. Long-term survival is acceptable in both emergent and salvage patients. Life-saving emergency and salvage CABG is justified in most patients but salvage patients have dismal prognosis if cardiac massage is needed during sternotomy.

Abstract 244: Revision of the Consent Form for Coronary Angiography Procedures Session Title: Poster Session II
Conclusion: In a representative assessment of coronary angiography and PCI outcomes, some major complications are higher that those reported in international literature. Significant access site bleeding was low, likely explained by the high prevalence of radial procedures. Future iterations of the patient information sheet and consent form may be improved by providing personalized risks.

Preoperative Cardiac Evaluation in Kidney Transplant Patients: Is Coronary Angiography Superior? A Focused Review.
Authors: Katta N, Balla S, Velagapudi P, Mittal M, Agrawal H, Kumar A, Aggarwal K Abstract Cardiovascular disease is the major cause of morbidity and mortality in chronic kidney disease patients. Because of a higher occurrence of asymptomatic coronary artery disease and increased perioperative cardiovascular mortality in kidney transplant patients, screening for coronary artery disease before transplant surgery is essential. Various studies have shown that cardiac stress testing is an unreliable screening method in these patients because of significant variability in sensitivity and negative predictive value. We su...

Impact of Indoxyl Sulfate on Coronary Plaques in Patients on Hemodialysis.
This study aimed to interpret the association between serum IS levels and coronary plaque burden (CPB) or CAC.A total of 30 consecutive patients on hemodialysis, who underwent 320-row coronary multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) angiography for suspected coronary artery disease, were enrolled in this prospective study. Coronary artery percent atheroma volume (a CPB marker) and percent calcium volume (a CAC marker) assessed using MDCT were evaluated. Furthermore, various oxidative and inflammatory markers typified by serum IS levels at a dialysis-free day were measured. Using these data, we investigated correlation bet...

Blood cardioplegia benefits only patients with a long cross-clamp time.
CONCLUSIONS: We did not find clear evidence of superiority of either type in the uncomplicated patient. When prolonged cross-clamp time or postoperative ventilation is expected, this study indicates that blood cardioplegia might be preferable. PMID: 30044166 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Neurological Involvement in Primary Systemic Vasculitis
Conclusion Neurological involvement is a common complication of PSV (Table 1), and neurologists play an important role in the identification and diagnosis of PSV patients with otherwise unexplained neurological symptoms as their chief complaint. This article summarizes the neurological manifestations of PSV and hopes to improve neuroscientists' understanding of this broad range of diseases. TABLE 1 Table 1. Common CNS and PNS involvements of primary systemic vasculitis. Author Contributions SZ conceived the article and wrote the manuscript. DY and GT reviewed and edited the manuscript. All authors ...

Age and diabetes mellitus associated with worse outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention in a multi-ethnic Asian dialysis patient population.
CONCLUSION: Asian dialysis patients who underwent PCI had a two-year MACE rate of 55.8% due to death and AMI. Age, LVEF and diabetes mellitus were significant predictors of mortality at two years. PMID: 32179924 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
