Event dependence in the analysis of cardiovascular readmissions postpercutaneous coronary intervention.

J Investig Med 2019 Jan 18. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

Baylor Heart and Vascular Institute, Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas, Dallas, Texas, USA.

Recurrent hospitalizations are common in longitudinal studies; however, many forms of cumulative event analyses assume recurrent events are independent. We explore the presence of event dependence when readmissions are spaced apart by at least 30 and 60 days. We set up a comparative framework with the assumption that patients with emergency percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) will be at higher risk for recurrent cardiovascular readmissions than those with elective procedures.

Against the Odds: A Novel Technique to Perform Cholangiography from a Percutaneous Approach through the Cystic Duct.

Cureus 2018 Nov 12;10(11):e3577. Epub 2018 Nov 12.

Interventional Radiology, University of Florida College of Medicine, Jacksonville, USA.

Percutaneous cholangiography is typically performed via a transhepatic approach and is reserved for patients with contraindications to traditional cholangiogram imaging modalities. For those with suspected cholelithiasis or choledocholithiasis who cannot undergo magnetic resonance imaging for diagnosis, percutaneous cholecystostomy with cholangiogram is a viable option. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography may also be precluded due to anatomic or obstructive limitations, in which case, percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography (PTC) may be indicated for diagnosis.

Predictive Value of Duplex Ultrasound for Significant In-Stent Restenosis after Percutaneous Transluminal Renal Artery Stent Placement: A Propensity Score Matching Analysis.

Ultrasound Med Biol 2019 Jan 14. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Department of Radiology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Electronic address:

To evaluate the value of pre-stenting and early post-stenting (<1 mo) duplex ultrasound parameters in predicting significant in-stent restenosis (ISR), we matched significant ISR patients 1:1 with controls without ISR in pre-stenting and early post-stenting (<1 mo) periods, respectively, using propensity score matching. Duplex ultrasound parameters, such as renal length difference between non-lesion side and lesion side within patient, trans-lesion peak systolic velocity and renal aortic ratio, were compared between cases and controls, and the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUROC) was charted to predict ISR. After propensity score matching, 28 cases were matched in the pre-stenting period and 16 cases in the early post-stenting time period. Read More

Meta-Analysis of the Role of Cangrelor for Patients Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention.

Am J Cardiol 2019 Jan 5. Epub 2019 Jan 5.

Department of Internal Medicine, University of Nevada Reno School of Medicine, Reno, Nevada. Electronic address:

Inhibition of the P2Y12 receptor by an oral P2Y12 inhibitor with loading doses along with Cyclooxygenase-1 inhibition by aspirin is considered a first-line treatment strategy in patients with the acute coronary syndrome and patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Limitations associated with oral P2Y12 receptor inhibitors include a requirement for in vivo conversion (thienopyridines), delayed onset of action, suboptimal inhibition, irreversible inhibition (thienopyridines), and delayed offset. In the acute setting, therapy with potent platelet inhibitors that have a fast onset and offset is desirable to attenuate thrombotic complications. Read More

Value of the SYNTAX Score in ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction Patients With a Concomitant Chronic Total Coronary Occlusion(from the EXPLORE Trial).

Am J Cardiol 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

`To analyze the impact of additional coronary artery disease, quantified by the SYNTAX (SYNergy between PCI with TAXus and cardiac surgery) score, on left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and long-term outcomes in a cohort of ST-elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients with a concomitant chronic total coronary occlusion (CTO). A total of 302 STEMI patients were randomized to percutaneous coronary intervention of a CTO (CTO PCI) (n = 148) or conservative CTO treatment (n = 154). SYNTAX scores were calculated by an independent corelab (Cardialysis BV, Rotterdam) at two time-points: (1) at baseline, and (2) after primary PCI in the conservative CTO arm and after CTO PCI in the invasive arm (named 'discharge SYNTAX score').
