Bleeding risk assessment in elderly patients with acute coronary syndrome.

J Geriatr Cardiol 2019 Feb;16(2):145-150

Department of Cardiology, University Hospital Álvaro Cunqueiro, Vigo, Spain.

Nowadays, elderly people represent a growing population segment with a well known increased risk of both ischemic and bleeding events. Current acute coronary syndrome guidelines, strongly recommend dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with few specific references for aged patients due to lack of evidence. Patients aged ≥ 75 years are misrepresented in the classic derivation trials cohorts. Read More

Frailty and acute coronary syndrome: does gender matter?

J Geriatr Cardiol 2019 Feb;16(2):138-144

Servicio de Cardiología, Hospital General Universitario Gregorio Marañón, CIBERCV, Madrid, Spain.

There are important sex-related differences in elderly patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Women are older, more frequently frail, and present more comorbidities than men. Atypical symptoms at presentation are also more common in female patients, they are leaded to a delayed diagnosis and treatment. Read More

Frailty in patients admitted to hospital for acute coronary syndrome: when, how and why?

J Geriatr Cardiol 2019 Feb;16(2):129-137

Cardiovascular Institute, Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria di Ferrara, Cona, Italy.

Frailty is an issue of paramount importance for cardiologists, because of the aging of patients admitted to hospital for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and the straight relationship between aging and frailty. Several tools have been provided in this setting, in order to objectively assess frailty status, but important questions are still unsolved. There are conflicting data about a unique definition of frailty in subjects with cardiovascular diseases, the timing to perform a frailty evaluation in the context of an acute myocardial infarction, the mean to assess frailty in these patients and the usefulness of the information derived from the frailty assessment.

Invasive strategy in elderly patients with acute coronary syndrome in 2018: close to the truth?

J Geriatr Cardiol 2019 Feb;16(2):114-120

Servei de Cardiologia, Hospital Clínic Universitari de València, INCLIVA, Universitat de València, CIBERCV, València, Spain.

Elderly population constitutes an increasingly larger proportion of patients admitted for acute coronary syndromes (ACS). The optimal management of ACS in these patients is still a challenge due to their clinical peculiarities and the paucity of specific data, and they have been traditionally managed more conservatively mainly based on subjective criteria. In ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction urgent reperfusion is the standard of care and there is no upper age limit. Read More

Antiplatelet therapy in very elderly and comorbid patients with acute coronary syndromes.

J Geriatr Cardiol 2019 Feb;16(2):103-113

Cardiovascular Department, Alessandro Manzoni Hospital, Lecco, Italy.

With population ageing and rise of life expectancy, a progressively increasing proportion of patients presenting with an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) are older adults, including those at extreme chronological age. Increasing amounts of data, including randomized clinical trials, have shown that the benefits of an early revascularization are maintained also at very old age, resulting in improved outcome after an acute coronary event. On the contrary, the optimal antiplatelet therapy (APT) remains unclear in these patients, because of both safety and efficacy concerns. Read More

Atrial fibrillation in the elderly.

J Geriatr Cardiol 2019 Jan;16(1):49-53

Department of Cardiology, Hospital Universitario de la Princesa, Madrid, Spain.

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia in elderly population, with age being one of the most important factors involved in its pathogenesis. Conduction disturbances may be present on the surface electrocardiogram before AF onset in some patients. Once this arrhythmia is diagnosed, antithrombotic therapy is mandatory in most cases, as this is the only treatment that has demonstrated to improve survival. Read More

Department of Cardiology, Guangdong Cardiovascular Institute, Guangdong Provincial Key Laboratory of Coronary Heart Disease Prevention, Guangdong Provincial People's Hospital, Guangdong Academy of Medical Sciences, Guangzhou, China.

Background: Valvular heart disease (VHD) is expected to become more prevail as the population ages and disproportionately affects older adults. However, direct comparison of clinical characteristics, sonographic diagnosis, and outcomes in VHD patients aged over 65 years is scarce. The objective of this study was to evaluate the differences in clinical characteristics and prognosis in two age-groups of geriatric patients with VHD. Read More

Analyses of risk factors and prognosis for new-onset atrial fibrillation in elderly patients after dual-chamber pacemaker implantation.

J Geriatr Cardiol 2018 Oct;15(10):628-633

Department of Cardiology, Beijing Geriatric Hospital, Beijing, China.

Objective: To retrospectively identify risk factors and the prognosis for new-onset atrial fibrillation (AF) after implantation of dual-chamber pacemakers in elderly patients.

Methods: Consecutive patients aged ≥ 65 years who underwent their first implantation of a dual-chamber permanent pacemaker in Beijing Anzhen Hospital from October 2013 to May 2016 were enrolled. Their complete programming and follow-up data were recorded. Read More

Repeated measurement of growth-differentiation factor-15 in Chinese Han patients with post-myocardial infarction chronic heart failure.

J Geriatr Cardiol 2018 Oct;15(10):618-627

Beijing Key Laboratory of Chronic Heart Failure Precision Medicine, Chinese PLA General Hospital, Beijing, China.

Background: Growth-differentiation factor-15 (GDF-15) is a promising prognostic biomarker in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). Comparatively little is known about the value of repeated measurement of GDF-15 with CHF in Chinese Han population. This study sought to identify the clinical value of repeated measurement of GDF-15 in Chinese Han patients with post-myocardial infarction CHF. Read More

Association between the level of CD4 T lymphocyte microRNA-155 and coronary artery disease in patients with unstable angina pectoris.

J Geriatr Cardiol 2018 Oct;15(10):611-617

Department of Cardiology, the First Affiliated Hospital of Guangxi Medical University, Guangxi Cardiovascular Institute, Nanning, Guangxi, China.

Objective: To study the association between the expression of microRNA-155 (miRNA-155) in peripheral blood CD4 T lymphocytes and the level of serum interferon-γ (IFN-γ) concentration and the severity of coronary artery disease (CAD).

Methods: After coronary angiography, 252 patients with suspected unstable angina pectoris (UAP) were divided into the UAP group (128 patients with CAD confirmed by angiography) and the control group (124 patients without CAD confirmed by angiography). Fresh peripheral blood was extracted 16-24 h before coronary angiography, CD4 T lymphocytes was tested using immunomagnetic beads, the expression of miRNA-155 was tested using quantitative PCR and the expression of IFN-γ was tested using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).

The effectiveness and safety of the RESTORE drug-eluting balloon versus a drug-eluting stent for small coronary vessel disease: study protocol for a multi-center, randomized, controlled trial.

J Geriatr Cardiol 2018 Jul;15(7):469-475

Department of Cardiology, Fu Wai Hospital, National Center for Cardiovascular Diseases, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, Beijing, China.

Objective: Small coronary vessel disease (disease affecting coronary vessels with main branch diameters of ≤ 2.75 mm) is a common and intractable problem in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). This study was designed to test the theory that the effectiveness and safety of drug-eluting balloons for the treatment of lesions in small coronary vessels are non-inferior to those of drug-eluting stents.

A three-year longitudinal study of the relation between left atrial diameter remodeling and atrial fibrillation ablation outcome.

J Geriatr Cardiol 2018 Jul;15(7):486-491

Division of Cardiology, Department of Internal Medicine, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan, China.

Background: The long-term prognostic influence of left atrial diameter (LAD) remodeling on the status of post-radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) atrial fibrillation (AF) is unclear. This study employed a two-stage model from 3-year echocardiographic data to ascertain whether the two-stage model predicts RFCA outcome more favorably than models using the baseline LAD.

Methods: Data were retrospectively collected from 263 consecutive patients with drug-refractory AF undergoing RFCA. Read More
