Heart Center, Tampere University Hospital and Faculty of Medicine and Health Technology, Tampere University, Arvo Ylpön katu 34, 33520 Tampere, Finland.

Background: Long-term outcome of the three categories of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in real-life patient cohorts is not well known. The objective of this study was to survey the 10-year outcome of an ACS patient cohort admitted to a university hospital and to explore factors affecting the outcome.

Methods: A total of 1188 consecutive patients (median age 73 years) with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) or unstable angina pectoris (UA) in 2002-2003 were included and followed up for ≥ 10 years. Read More

Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography for the Diagnosis of Vasospastic Angina: Comparison with Invasive Coronary Angiography and Ergonovine Provocation Test.

Korean J Radiol 2019 May;20(5):719-728

Department of Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Center, Seoul National University Hospital, Seoul, Korea.

Objective: To investigate the diagnostic validity of coronary computed tomography angiography (cCTA) in vasospastic angina (VA) and factors associated with discrepant results between invasive coronary angiography with the ergonovine provocation test (iCAG-EPT) and cCTA.

Cannabis use and acute coronary syndrome.

Clin Toxicol (Phila) 2019 Apr 9:1-11. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

a Department of Emergency Medicine , University of California Davis Medical Center , Sacramento , CA , USA.

Introduction: Cannabis smoking can result in elevation of heart rate and blood pressure immediately after use, possibly from sympathetic nervous system stimulation and parasympathetic nervous system inhibition. Vascular inflammation, platelet activation, and carboxyhemoglobin generation have also been proposed as potential side effects of cannabis smoking. As such, an association between cannabis use and acute coronary syndrome has been postulated. Read More

Insulin-like growth factor binding proteins and angiogenesis: from cancer to cardiovascular disease.

Cytokine Growth Factor Rev 2019 Mar 18. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Leeds Institute of Cardiovascular & Metabolic Medicine, School of Medicine, University of Leeds, United Kingdom. Electronic address:

Angiogenesis is a tightly regulated activity that is vital during embryonic development and for normal physiological repair processes and reproduction in healthy adults. Pathological angiogenesis is a driving force behind a variety of diseases including cancer and retinopathies, and inhibition of angiogenesis is a therapeutic option that has been the subject of much research, with several inhibitory agents now available for medical therapy. Conversely, therapeutic angiogenesis has been mooted as having significant potential in the treatment of ischemic conditions such as angina pectoris and peripheral arterial disease, but so far there has been less translation from lab to bedside.

Coronary microvascular dysfunction (CMD) is associated with a poor prognosis even in absence of obstructive coronary artery disease. CMD can be assessed as a myocardial blood flow reserve by positron emission tomography (PETMBFR) and as coronary flow velocity reserve by transthoracic Doppler echocardiography (TTDECFVR). Impaired first-pass perfusion assessed by cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is an early sign of ischemia. Read More

Int J Angiol 2019 Mar 2;28(1):50-56. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Tampere, Tampere, Finland.

A prevalence of diabetes is increasing among the patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Data on whether health-related quality of life improves similarly after CABG in diabetics and nondiabetics are limited. We assessed long-term mortality and changes in quality of life (RAND-36 Health Survey) after CABG. Read More

Heart rate recovery and blood pressure response during exercise testing in patients with microvascular angina.

Clin Hypertens 2019 1;25. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

1Division of Cardiology, Department of Internal Medicine, Kosin University College of Medicine, 34, Amnam-dong, Seo-gu, Busan, 602-702 Korea.

Background: Angina pectoris with a normal coronary angiogram, termed microvascular angina (MVA), is an important clinical entity; however, its causes remain unclear. Autonomic dysfunction is one of the possible causes. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate parasympathetic dysfunction assessed by heart rate recovery (HRR) and increased sympathetic activity assessed by exaggerated blood pressure (BP) response (EBPR) to exercise in MVA.

Coronary Atherosclerotic Phenotype and Plaque Healing in Patients With Recurrent Acute Coronary Syndromes Compared With Patients With Long-term Clinical Stability: An In Vivo Optical Coherence Tomography Study.

JAMA Cardiol 2019 Mar 13. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Department of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Sciences, Fondazione Policlinico A. Gemelli, Istituto di Ricovero e Cura a Carattere Scientifico, Università Cattolica Sacro Cuore, Rome, Italy.

Importance: At one end of the coronary artery disease (CAD) spectrum, there are patients with multiple recurrent acute coronary syndromes (rACS), and at the other end there are those with long-standing clinical stability. Predicting the natural history of these patients is challenging because unstable plaques often heal without resulting in ACS.

Objective: To assess in vivo the coronary atherosclerotic phenotype as well as the prevalence and characteristics of healed coronary plaques by optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging in patients at the extremes of the CAD spectrum. Read More

Swiss Med Wkly 2019 02 10;149:w20012. Epub 2019 Mar 10.

Swiss Childhood Cancer Registry, Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine (ISPM), University of Bern, Switzerland / Department of Paediatrics, Inselspital, Bern University Hospital, University of Bern, Switzerland.

Background And Aims: Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) increase late morbidity and mortality in survivors of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL). We compared the risk of CVD in ALL survivors to siblings, examined time trends, quantified treatment-related risks, and investigated whether risk extends beyond patients treated with anthracyclines and chest radiotherapy.

Methods: The Swiss Childhood Cancer Survivor Study assessed CVD by patient questionnaire in 5-year ALL survivors diagnosed between 1976 and 2005 and their siblings. Read More

[Predictive value of NT-proBNP on admission on left ventricular ejection fraction and in-patients major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events in hospitalized patients with unstable angina].

Zhonghua Xin Xue Guan Bing Za Zhi 2019 Feb;47(2):117-122

Cardiovascular Center, Beijing Friendship Hospital, Capital Medical University, Beijing 100050, China.

To explore the predictive value of N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) on admission on left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and the in-hospital major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events (MACCE) in hospitalized patients with unstable angina (UA). Data of 2 972 consecutive hospitalized patients with UA in Beijing Friendship Hospital from January 2013 to September 2017 were retrospective analyzed. Patients were divided into 4 groups according to the level of NT-proBNP on admission: 733 cases with NT-proBNP lower than 61 ng/L, 749 cases with NT-proBNP between 61 and 133 ng/L, 747 cases with NT-proBNP between 133 and 326 ng/L, and 743 cases with NT-proBNP higher than 326 ng/L.

Coronary endothelial function testing may improve long-term quality of life in subjects with microvascular coronary endothelial dysfunction.

Open Heart 2019 2;6(1):e000870. Epub 2019 Feb 2.

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, Minnesota, USA.

Aim: Angina pectoris in the absence of obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) is common and is associated with poor quality of life (QOL). Coronary microvascular endothelial dysfunction is associated with myocardial ischaemia and is a common cause of angina. We hypothesise that evaluation of coronary endothelial function, its diagnosis and treatment will favourably impact QOL in patients with angina symptoms and non-obstructive CAD. Read More
