Development and validation of a novel risk score for primary percutaneous coronary intervention for ST elevation myocardial infarction.

Cardiovasc Revasc Med 2018 Dec 27. Epub 2018 Dec 27.

Department of Cardiovascular Science, University of Sheffield, UK; Department of Cardiology, Northern General Hospital, Sheffield, UK.

Background: Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) is the default treatment for patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and carries a higher risk of adverse outcomes when compared with elective and urgent PCI. Conventional PCI risk scores tend to be complex and may underestimate the risk associated with PPCI due to under-representation of patients with STEMI in their datasets. This study aimed to develop a simple, practical and contemporary risk model to provide risk stratification in PPCI. Read More

Venoarterial ECMO for Adults: JACC Scientific Expert Panel.

J Am Coll Cardiol 2019 Feb;73(6):698-716

Division of Cardiology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, New York.

Venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a rescue therapy that can stabilize patients with hemodynamic compromise, with or without respiratory failure, for days or weeks. In cardiology, the main indications for ECMO include cardiac arrest, cardiogenic shock, post-cardiotomy shock, refractory ventricular tachycardia, and acute management of complications of invasive procedures. The fundamental premise underlying ECMO is that it is a bridge-to recovery, to a more durable bridge, to definitive treatment, or to decision. Read More

The Society of Thoracic Surgeons Intermacs database annual report: Evolving indications, outcomes, and scientific partnerships.

J Heart Lung Transplant 2019 Feb;38(2):114-126

Department of Surgery, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, Alabama.

Background: The Interagency Registry for Mechanically Assisted Circulatory Support (Intermacs), a joint effort among the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, the Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and others, was established in 2005 at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The registry examined clinical outcomes and quality-of-life metrics of patients who received an Food and Drug Administration-approved durable mechanical circulatory support (MCS) device to treat advanced heart failure. On January 1, 2018, the Intermacs Database became part of The Society of Thoracic Surgeons National Database, providing additional resources for quality assessment and improvement and scientific advancement.

Sutureless repair of spontaneous coronary dissection with free wall rupture and cardiac tamponade.

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv 2019 Jan 28. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Department of Cardiology, Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra Northwell, North Shore University Hospital, Manhasset, New York.

Left ventricular free wall rupture is a feared complication of acute myocardial infarction typically presenting with cardiogenic shock. We present a case of spontaneous coronary artery dissection with free wall rupture and cardiac tamponade in an uncommon demographic. Friable myocardial tissue frequently precludes suture technique making biological glue repair a suitable option. Read More

Difficult management of a patient presenting with recurrent syncope caused by diffuse vasospasm.

North Clin Istanb 2018 Sep;5(3):264-267

Department of Cardiology, Health Sciences University, Kartal Kosuyolu Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Spontaneous and simultaneous multivessel coronary artery spasm may present with multisite myocardial ischemia, atrioventricular block, acute lung edema, cardiogenic shock, or ventricular fibrillation. In a case of syncope caused by vasospasm, the underlying mechanism may be complex, such as atrioventricular block and/or ventricular arrhythmia. Dual implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) placement should be considered along with optimal medical treatment. Read More

Coronary Revascularization and Use of Hemodynamic Support in Acute Coronary Syndromes.

Hellenic J Cardiol 2019 Jan 21. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Minneapolis Heart Institute, Abbott Northwestern Hospital, Minneapolis, MN. Electronic address:

Cardiogenic shock develops in up to 10% of patients with acute myocardial infarction and continues to have high mortality, often >50%. Early invasive treatment is the default therapeutic approach in these patients. Based on the results of the CULPRIT-SHOCK trial, culprit only revascularization during the acute phase is preferred over multivessel revascularization. Read More

Percutaneous edge-to-edge mitral valve repair may rescue select patients in cardiogenic shock: Findings from a single center case series.

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv 2019 Jan 24. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Division of Cardiology, University of Colorado School of Medicine, Aurora, Colorado.

Background: Patients with severe mitral regurgitation (MR) and cardiogenic shock are typically too high risk for immediate surgery; however, percutaneous edge-to-edge mitral valve repair (pMVr) may be reasonable in select patients.

Aim: Describe characteristics and outcomes of patients who underwent pMVr with and without shock at a single center.

Methods: Chart review of all patients who underwent non-investigational pMVr from November 2013 to October 2018. Read More
