Impact of unprotected left main percutaneous coronary intervention on long-term clinical outcomes: a large single-center study.

Coron Artery Dis 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Background: With the advancements of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI), it is not clear whether unprotected left main (ULM) coronary artery disease (CAD) remains an independent predictor of adverse outcomes after PCI therapy. We have therefore carried out a large cohort study to investigate the impact of ULM disease on 2-year clinical outcomes in Chinese patients undergoing contemporary PCI treatment.

Methods And Results: From January 2013 to December 2013, 10 724 consecutive patients undergoing PCI were prospectively collected. Read More

Comparative effects of high-dose atorvastatin versus rosuvastatin on lipid parameters, oxidized low-density lipoprotein, and proprotein convertase subtilisin kexin 9 in acute coronary syndrome.

Coron Artery Dis 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Departments of Cardiology.

Aim: Current guidelines recommend administration of high-dose statins in acute coronary syndrome (ACS). It has been reported that statins upregulate proprotein convertase subtilisin kexin 9 (PCSK9) mRNA expression and increase circulating PCSK9 levels. We aimed to compare the effects of high-dose atorvastatin and rosuvastatin on serum oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxidized-LDL) and PCSK9 levels in statin-naive patients with ACS. Read More

Comparison of Resolute zotarolimus-eluting and Xience everolimus-eluting stents in patients with de novo long coronary artery lesions: a randomized LONG-DES VI trial.

Coron Artery Dis 2019 Jan;30(1):59-66

Asan Medical Center, Heart Institute, University of Ulsan College of Medicine.

Background: Outcomes for stent-based coronary intervention of lesions with long diseased segments remain relatively unfavorable. This study sought to compare the efficacy of Resolute zotarolimus-eluting stents (R-ZES) and Xience everolimus-eluting stents (EES) for very long coronary lesions.

Methods And Results: This randomized, multicenter, prospective trial compared the use of R-ZES with EES for very long (≥50 mm) native coronary lesions. Read More

Long-term renal outcomes and mortality following renal injury among myocardial infarction patients treated by primary percutaneous intervention.

Coron Artery Dis 2019 Mar;30(2):87-92

Departments of Cardiology.

Objectives: Limited data are present on persistent renal impairment following acute kidney injury (AKI) among ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). We evaluated the incidence and prognostic implications of acute kidney disease (AKD), defined as reduced kidney function for the duration of between 7 and 90 days after exposure to an AKI initiating event, as well as long-term renal outcomes among STEMI patients undergoing primary PCI who developed AKI.

Patients And Methods: We retrospectively studied 225 consecutive STEMI patients who developed AKI. Read More

The relation between ABO blood types and clinical and platelet function parameters in patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention.

Coron Artery Dis 2019 Jan;30(1):51-58

Robert J. Tomsich Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Institute.

Background: ABO blood groups have been associated with venous thromboembolism and arterial thrombosis. Although platelets play key roles in thrombogenesis, the relation between ABO groups and platelets is not well known and was investigated in this study.

Patients And Methods: ABO blood type information was retrospectively obtained for 206 patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and received dual antiplatelet therapy with aspirin and clopidogrel. Read More

Are two internal thoracic grafts better than one in patients with peripheral vascular disease?

Coron Artery Dis 2019 Jan;30(1):67-73

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center.

Background: The use of two bilateral internal thoracic artery grafting (BITA) was shown to lead to survival benefit. However, operators are reluctant to use BITA with peripheral vascular disease (PVD) because of concerns of increased rates of sternal wound infection and lack of studies supporting survival benefit compared with single internal thoracic artery (SITA) grafting. The aim of this study is to compare outcome BITA grafting versus of SITA and vein grafts in PVD patients. Read More

Association between admission lactate levels and mortality in patients with acute coronary syndrome: a retrospective cohort study.

Coron Artery Dis 2019 Jan;30(1):26-32

Objective: Hyperlactatemia at admission is associated with poor outcome in critically ill patients. However, data on the prognostic value of blood lactate level in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) are limited. The present study assessed the prognostic effect of admission lactate level in a large population of patients with ACS. Read More

Reverse, stationary and progressive left ventricular dilatation in dilated and nondilated ventricles on admission following first anterior STEMI.

Coron Artery Dis 2019 Jan;30(1):11-19

Coronary Care Unit, Cardiology Service, University Hospital Vall d'Hebron, Barcelona, Spain.

Background: The relationship between admission left ventricular (LV) volumes, regional contractility and persistent ST elevation in first anterior ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) with evolution of LV volumes at 12 months remains inconclusive. Thus possible differences among patients with reverse dilatation (RD), stationary dilatation (SD) or progressive dilatation (PD) at 12 months based on left ventricle end-systolic volume (LVESV) index changes were investigated.

Patients And Methods: ECG and echocardiographic features of 394 1-year survivors of anterior STEMI were analyzed at admission, 6 and 12 months in those with RD (≥15% reduction of LVESV index, at 12 months n=141), SD (<15% reduction or increase, n=123) or PD (≥15% increase, n=130). Read More

Calcified neoatherosclerosis causing in-stent restenosis: prevalence, predictors, and implications.

Coron Artery Dis 2019 Jan;30(1):1-8

Cardiology Department.

Background: Neoatherosclerosis has emerged as a major cause of in-stent restenosis (ISR). Although this entity has been described as a unique process, optical coherence tomography (OCT) enables depiction of distinct morphologic patterns, including the presence of calcified sheets within the stent. We sought to assess prevalence, predictors, and implications of calcified neoatherosclerosis (cNA) as the cause of ISR. Read More
