Single-territory incomplete surgical revascularization improves regional wall motion of remote ventricular areas: results from a propensity-matched study.

J Geriatr Cardiol 2018 Jul;15(7):479-485

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Università Campus Bio-Medico di Roma, Rome, Italy.

Objective: Basic science studies demonstrated a general intramyocardial angiogenetic response potentially responsible for the creation of a microvascular neocapillaries network assisting myocardial function. We hypothesized that the benefit provided by the reperfusion of left anterior descending (LAD) territories and the biological angiogenetic drive triggered by the revascularization could translate in a global improvement in ventricular contractility, not restricted to the grafted area.

Methods: High-risk patients with multivessel coronary artery disease and preoperative wall motion abnormalities were retrospectively analyzed to compare outcomes and regional ventricular function of those who received optimal medical therapy (OMT) versus those who underwent off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCABG) and received an incomplete myocardial revascularization using left internal mammary artery (LIMA) on LAD (OPCABG group).

Effect of dynamic light at the coronary care unit on the length of hospital stay and development of delirium: a retrospective cohort study.

J Geriatr Cardiol 2018 Sep;15(9):567-573

Department of Cardiology, Division of Cardiology, Viecuri Medical Centre, Venlo, the Netherlands.

Background: Disturbed circadian rhythm is a potential cause of delirium and is linked to disorganisation of the circadian rhythmicity. Dynamic light (DL) could reset the circadian rhythm by activation of the suprachiasmatic nucleus to prevent delirium. Evidence regarding the effects of light therapy is predominantly focused on psychiatric disorders and circadian rhythm sleep disorders. Read More

Natriuretic peptide family as diagnostic/prognostic biomarker and treatment modality in management of adult and geriatric patients with heart failure: remaining issues and challenges.

J Geriatr Cardiol 2018 Aug;15(8):540-546

Division of Cardiology, Pauley Heart Center, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, VA, United States.

B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and N-terminal proBNP (NT-proBNP), the key members of natriuretic peptide family have been recommended as the gold standard biomarkers for the diagnosis and prognosis of heart failure (HF) according to the current clinical guidelines. However, recent studies have revealed many previously unrecognized features about the natriuretic peptide family, including more accurate utilization of BNP and NT-proBNP in diagnosing HF. The pathophysiological mechanisms behind natriuretic peptide release, breakdown, and clearance are very complex and the diverse nature of circulating natriuretic peptides and fragments makes analytical detection particularly challenging.

Subclinical hypothyroidism is associated with lipid-rich plaques in patients with coronary artery disease as assessed by optical coherence tomography.

J Geriatr Cardiol 2018 Aug;15(8):534-539

Department of Cardiology, Chinese PLA General Hospital, Beijing, China.

Background: Subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) has recently been acknowledged as an unconventional risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD) and characterized by poor prognosis, which may be due to atherosclerotic plaque characteristics. We conducted this study to observe coronary plaque characteristics in coronary artery disease patients with concomitant SCH.

Methods: Patients with coronary artery disease were enrolled in the study and divided into an SCH group (patients, = 26; plaques, = 35) and a non-SCH group (patients, = 52; plaques, = 66). Read More

Five-year major clinical outcomes between first-generation and second-generation drug-eluting stents in acute myocardial infarction patients underwent percutaneous coronary intervention.

J Geriatr Cardiol 2018 Aug;15(8):523-533

Cardiovascular Center, Korea University, Guro Hospital, Seoul, South Korea.

Background: There were limited data comparing the major clinical outcomes between first-generation (1G)-drug eluting stents (DES) and second-generation (2G)-DES in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) during very long follow-up periods. We thought to investigate the comparative efficacy and safety of 2G-DES compared with 1G-DES in AMI patients during 5-year follow-up periods.

Method: A total of 1016 eligible AMI patients who underwent PCI with 1G-DES [paclitaxel-, sirolimus-, 1G-zotarolimus-eluting stent (endeavor or endeavor sprint), = 554] or 2G-DES [2G-zotarolimus (endeavor resolute)- or everolimus-eluting stent, = 462] were enrolled. Read More

Correction of hypovitaminosis D improved global longitudinal strain earlier than left ventricular ejection fraction in cardiovascular older adults after orthopaedic surgery.

J Geriatr Cardiol 2018 Aug;15(8):519-522

IRCCS Orthopedic Institute Galeazzi, Cardiology Unit, Milan, Italy.

Background: Cardiovascular diseases and insufficient levels of vitamin D are risk factors for adverse surgical outcomes, and they are both commonly present among older adults undergoing orthopaedic surgery. Giving the cardiovascular effects of vitamin D, pre-operative diagnosis of hypovitaminosis D would be a valuable step for the implementation of supplementation protocols. We investigated if the normalization of serum 25 [OH] D could ameliorate cardiac performance of older adults suffering from cardiovascular diseases. Read More
