Coronary artery spasm - Clinical features, pathogenesis and treatment.

Proc Jpn Acad Ser B Phys Biol Sci 2019 ;95(2):53-66

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Kumamoto Kinoh Hospital, Kumamoto Aging Research Institute.

Coronary artery spasm (CAS) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of ischemic heart disease, including angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, and sudden death, occurring most often from midnight to early morning. CAS is prevalent among East Asians and is associated with an aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 (ALDH2)-deficient genotype (ALDH2*2) and alcohol flushing, which is prevalent among East Asians but is virtually non-existent in other populations. ALDH2 eliminates not only acetaldehyde but also other toxic aldehydes from lipid peroxidation and tobacco smoking, thereby protecting tissues and cells from oxidative damage. Read More

Former Professor of Neurology and Head - Institute of Neurology, Madras Medical College, Chennai, Emeritus Professor - The Tamil Nadu Dr. M.G.R. Medical University, Adjunct Professor - Indian Institute of Technology (IIT - Chennai), Tamil Nadu, India.

Propranolol is a beta-adrenergic receptor antagonist that was developed by the British scientist Sir James Black primarily for the treatment of angina pectoris, more than 50 years ago. It was not long before several other cardiovascular as well as noncardiovascular therapeutic uses of propranolol were discovered. Propranolol soon became a powerful tool for physicians in the treatment of numerous conditions such as hypertension, cardiac arrhythmias, myocardial infarction, migraine, portal hypertension, anxiety, essential tremors, hyperthyroidism, and pheochromocytoma.

Myocardial infarction with non-obstructive coronary arteries: a focus on vasospastic angina.

Neth Heart J 2019 Jan 28. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Academic Medical Centre, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Vasospastic angina (VSA) is considered a broad diagnostic category including documented spontaneous episodes of angina pectoris produced by coronary epicardial vasospasm as well as those induced during provocative coronary vasospasm testing and coronary microvascular dysfunction due to microvascular spasm. The hallmark feature of VSA is rest angina, which promptly responds to short-acting nitrates; however, VSA can present with a great variety of symptoms, ranging from stable angina to acute coronary syndrome and even ventricular arrhythmia. VSA is more prevalent in females, who can present with symptoms different from those among male patients. Read More

[Acute coronary syndrome without ST-elevation (NSTE-ACS)].

Herz 2019 Feb;44(1):10-15

, Hildesheim, Deutschland.

The timing of an invasive diagnosis and treatment strategy in patients with an acute coronary syndrome without ST-elevation (NSTE-ACS) depends on the patient's risk profile. In addition to the clinical symptoms, ST/T alterations in the resting ECG as well as an increase and kinetics of troponin are of crucial importance in this setting. For the majority of patients the highly sensitive troponin enables a rapid rule in or rule out strategy of a non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) with a 0/3 h algorithm. Read More

J Pharm Biomed Anal 2019 Mar 29;166:52-65. Epub 2018 Dec 29.

Shanghai Research Center for Modernization of Traditional Chinese Medicine, National Engineering Laboratory for TCM Standardization Technology, Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shanghai, 201203, China.

Danqi Tongmai tablet (DQTT), an innovative TCM formula under clinical trials, is composed of salvianolic acids (SA) and panax notoginsenosides (PNE) for the treatment of coronary heart disease and angina pectoris. However, the in vivo herb-herb interaction of DQTT remains unclear. In the present research, a rapid, reliable and sensitive method for quantitative analysis of multi-notoginsenoside in rat plasma based on ultra high performance liquid chromatography coupled with triple quadrupole mass spectrometry (UHPLC-TQ/MS) was established and then applied to explore the herb-herb interaction mechanism of DQTT based on the pharmacokinetics in acute myocardial ischemia (AMI) and sham rats after oral administration of DQTT and PNE.

[Acute chest pain and normal high-sensitivity cardiac troponin levels; is this the end of the story?]

Authors:
Frans H Rutten

Ned Tijdschr Geneeskd 2018 Dec 5;162. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Universiteit Utrecht, UMC Utrecht, divisie Julius Centrum voor Gezondheidswetenschappen en Eerstelijns Geneeskunde, afd. Huisartsgeneeskunde.

In patients presenting with acute chest pain, acute myocardial infarction should first be ruled out as a cause as these patients will often need coronary revascularisation. In the remaining patients, those with normal high-sensitivity cardiac troponin levels should undergo additional cardiac investigations to discriminate patients with an episode of unstable angina pectoris from those who have a non-cardiac cause of the chest pain. In the large majority (86%), the medical history does not raise suspicion of angina pectoris and an exercise test will show normal results; in these patients, further cardiac imaging does not seem to be indicated.
