Background: In patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) accompanied by the no-/slow-reflow phenomenon, the maintenance duration of GP IIb/IIIa inhibitor (GPI) is controversial. We compare the efficacy and safety of short- and long-term GPI infusion in STEMI patients with the no-/slow-reflow phenomenon.

Methods: From June 2016 to December 2019, we continuously included patients with on-set STEMI who underwent pPCI, accompanied by the no-/slow-reflow, during interventional procedures at Guangdong Provincial People's Hospital and Zhuhai Golden Bay Hospital. The hemorrhage events, heart function, and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) were compared between < 24 h and ≥ 24 h GPI duration groups. The Kaplan-Meier curve was used to estimate the 1-year MACE-free survival at different GPI utility times.

Results: In total, 127 patients were divided into two groups based on the duration of tirofiban use (less and more than 24 h). There was no significant difference between two groups in terms of baseline characteristics, plaque condition, and coronary physiological function. The two groups showed similar in-hospital MACE (1 [1.85%] vs. 4 [5.48%], p = 0.394) and 1-year MACE-free survival (log-rank test p = 0.9085). The 1-year MACE remained consistent between the two groups in all subgroups of different risk factors of no-/slow-reflow. There was no significant difference in heart function and in-hospital hemorrhage events (3.7% vs. 1.37%, p = 0.179).

Conclusion: In the real world, prolonging the duration of GPI may not significantly improve the clinical outcome in patients with STEMI with no-/slow-reflow.

Emerging Trends and New Developments in Transient Elastography: A Bibliometric and Cocitation Analysis from 1999 to 2017.

Can J Gastroenterol Hepatol 2019 5;2019:3280657. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

CHESS Frontier Center Working Party, The First Hospital of Lanzhou University, Lanzhou University, Lanzhou, China.

Purpose: To identify and characterize the 100 most-cited articles in the field of transient elastography.

Methods: The top-cited articles focusing on transient elastography from 1999 to 2017 were retrieved from Science Citation Index Expanded (SCI-E) database. The most prolific article, journal, country and continent, top-cited article in different period, international collaboration, cocitation analysis of journal were retrieved and analyzed in this article. Bibexcel 2016, Microsoft Excel 2010, and VOSviewer 1.6.5 were used to analyze bibliometric records we downloaded.

Results: The 100 most-cited articles were published between 2003 and 2015. The total citations ranged from 54 to 1376 (mean, 167.52 ± 208.46; median, 89.5) and the annual citations ranged from 4.91 to 98.24 (mean, 17.21±15.68; median, 12.1). The top-cited article was published in in 2005 by Castera L. et al. (n=1376). The most-cited articles in 2003-2007 (n=1380), 2008-2012 (n=599) and 2013-2017 (n=159) were located. All of the most-cited articles in three periods were focusing on the topic of noninvasive assessment of liver fibrosis. The most prolific author was de Ledinghen V. (n=21) and France (n=43) was the leading country. The most productive journal was (n=20). The major article type was original research article.

Conclusions: We undertook efforts to provide an insight into the features and evolvement of the most-cited articles in the field of transient elastography. For transient elastography, as a noninvasive assessment of liver fibrosis, its use in the evaluation of liver fibrosis is gradually mature and shows great advantages. Moreover, the field of transient elastography is in a stage of rapid development.
