Long-term clinical outcomes after a percutaneous coronary intervention with a drug-eluting stent in patients with unprotected left main coronary artery disease excluded from clinical trials.

Coron Artery Dis 2019 Jan 25. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Cardiology, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Background: Major randomized clinical trials assessing clinical outcomes in patients who underwent a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for left main coronary artery disease excluded some high-risk subsets. Whether the effectiveness and safety of a percutaneous approach in this group of patients are comparable with those observed in clinical trials is unclear. We aimed to explore the long-term outcomes of contemporary drug-eluting stent (DES)-based revascularization for left main coronary artery disease in patients presenting with one or more clinical or angiographic characteristics who would have precluded inclusion in randomized trials.

Keele Cardiovascular Research Group, Centre for Prognosis Research, Institute of Applied Clinical Science and Primary Care and Health Sciences, Keele University.

Objective: This study aims to investigate the temporal trends in utilization of invasive coronary angiography (CA) at different time points and changing profiles of patients undergoing CA following non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTEACS). We also describe the association between time to CA and in-hospital clinical outcomes.

Patients And Methods: We queried the National Inpatient Sample to identify all admissions with a primary diagnosis of NSTEACS from 2004 to 2014. Read More

Cost-effectiveness analysis of short-duration dual antiplatelet therapy with newer drug-eluting stent platforms versus longer-duration dual antiplatelet therapy with a second-generation drug-eluting stent in elective percutaneous coronary intervention.

Coron Artery Dis 2019 May;30(3):177-182

Baim Institute for Clinical Research.

Background: The cost-effectiveness of newer drug-eluting stents (DES) such as biodegradable-polymer or polymer-free stents with shorter dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) duration is unknown. We evaluated the cost-effectiveness of treatment with newer DES that may allow for shorter DAPT duration.

Patients And Methods: We performed a cost-effectiveness analysis of treatment with newer DES platforms followed by 1 or 3 months of DAPT compared with standard second-generation DES followed by 6 or 12 months of DAPT in patients with stable coronary disease. Read More

Poor performance of historical prediction models in patients investigated for chest pain: a prospective single centre, head-to-head comparison in a large cohort of patients.

Coron Artery Dis 2019 May;30(3):216-221

Department of Cardiology, Royal Liverpool University Hospital, Liverpool, UK.

Background: An optimal investigation strategy for patients with suspected angina pectoris (AP) remains elusive. Present guidelines use the Duke Clinical Score (DCS) or the Diamond-Forrester (DF) model to compute the likelihood of coronary artery disease (CAD). This prospective study of patients referred to a chest pain clinic compares the relative values of these two historical models and of pain characteristics only to predict the presence of CAD.

Association between inflammatory biomarkers and neointimal response following elective implantation of the ABSORB bioresorbable vascular scaffold.

Coron Artery Dis 2019 May;30(3):183-187

Sussex Cardiac Centre, Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals.

Introduction: The ABSORB bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) is associated with greater neointimal proliferation and thrombotic rate than metal stent. The role of inflammatory biomarkers on neointimal proliferation has not been studied in the setting of BVS implantation.

Patients And Methods: Thirty patients had arterial blood sampling before elective percutaneous coronary intervention with the ABSORB BVS and at 9-months follow-up. Read More

Value of adenosine stress cardiovascular magnetic resonance in the evaluation of vessels supplying previously infarcted territories.

Coron Artery Dis 2019 May;30(3):222-231

Division of Cardiology.

Background: The diagnostic performance of adenosine stress cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) for the detection of significant stenosis in infarct-related arteries is widely unknown. Two different types of perfusion defects can be observed: (a) larger than or (b) equal size as scar.We hypothesized that: (a) defect>scar predicts significant coronary stenosis, and (b) defect=scar predicts an unobstructed infarct-related artery, and (c) angina symptoms might be of additional value in stratification.

Omission of aspirin in patients taking oral anticoagulation after percutaneous coronary intervention: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Coron Artery Dis 2019 Mar;30(2):109-115

Department of Emergency Medicine and Chest Pain Center, Qilu Hospital of Shandong University.

Background: There is no consensus on optimal antiplatelet and anticoagulation therapy after coronary stenting.

Methods: We identified randomized controlled trials (RCTs) published in PubMed, Cochrane Library, and Embase using the following keywords: 'antiplatelet', 'dual therapy', 'triple therapy', 'antithrombosis', 'indication for anticoagulation', 'percutaneous coronary intervention', and 'RCTs'. Primary safety end points were relative bleeding events, and secondary efficacy end points were major adverse cardiovascular events including stent thrombosis, death, myocardial infarction, and stroke.

Impact of smoking on all-cause mortality and cardiovascular events in patients after coronary revascularization with a percutaneous coronary intervention or coronary artery bypass graft: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Coron Artery Dis 2019 Jan 8. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Department of Cardiology, Zhongda Hospital, School of Medicine, Southeast University, Nanjing.

Although cigarette smoking is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease, inconsistent results have been published in the literature on its impacts on the cardiovascular health of patients after coronary revascularization with a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). We performed a comprehensive electronic database search through July 2018. Studies reporting the risk estimates of all-cause mortality and cardiovascular outcomes in patients after coronary revascularization with PCI or CABG on the basis of smoking status were selected.
