Intravascular Lithotripsy for Calcium Modification in Chronic Total Occlusion Percutaneous Coronary Intervention.

J Interv Cardiol 2021 21;2021:9958035. Epub 2021 Jun 21.

Golden Jubilee National Hospital, Glasgow, UK.

Intravascular lithotripsy (IVL) has been shown to be safe and effective for calcium modification in nonocclusive coronary artery disease (CAD), but there are only case reports of its use in calcified chronic total occlusions (CTO). We report data from an international multicenter registry of IVL use during CTO percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and provide provisional data regarding its efficacy and safety.

The Vital Role of Thanatochemistry in the Postmortem Diagnostic of Diabetic Ketoacidosis-Case Report.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2021 May 29;11(6). Epub 2021 May 29.

Department of Forensic Medicine, Institute of Forensic Medicine, 700455 Iasi, Romania.

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a lethal acute hyperglycemic complication of diabetes mellitus (DM) and it represents the initial manifestation of DM in about 15-20% of cases in adults and about 30-40% of cases in children. Postmortem diagnosis of DKA can only be made by applying thanatochemistry. Biochemistry applied postmortem is viewed with skepticism by many practitioners in the forensic field, completely lacking in many forensic services around the world, and especially in the national ones.

Combined Techniques of Non-invasive Tc-Besilesomab/Tc-Sulfur Colloid with Hybrid SPECT/CT Imaging in Characterising Cellulitis from Symptomatic Perimegaprosthetic Infection: A Case Report.

Malays Orthop J 2020 Nov;14(3):188-193

Department of Nuclear Medicine, Radiotherapy and Oncology, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Kubang Kerian, Malaysia.

Megaprosthesis is used to restore the form and function of massive skeletal defects, but it is accompanied by risks of failure, mainly due to perimegaprosthetic infection (PMI). In practice, the diagnosis of infected megaprosthesis among patients with a high index of clinical suspicion, elevated serological markers, and multiple negative or inconclusive imaging can be very challenging and poses a diagnostic conundrum to many orthopaedic surgeons. We present the case of a symptomatic 26-year-old female with large B-cell lymphoma who developed cellulitis with suspected complication of PMI 15 months post-implantation. Read More

Impact of the Polymorphism rs5751876 of the Purinergic Receptor ADORA2A on Periprocedural Myocardial Infarction in Patients Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention.

J Atheroscler Thromb 2021 Feb 19;28(2):137-145. Epub 2020 Dec 19.

Department of Translational Medicine, Eastern Piedmont University.

Aim: Periprocedural myocardial infarction (PMI), a severe complication of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) procedures, has a negative prognostic effect, both at short and long-term follow-up. So far, adenosine's role in preventing PMI has shown contrasting results. A genetic variant of ADORA2A receptor, 1976 C>T, has been suggested as a potential determinant of the interindividual response to adenosine, thus conditioning its potential benefits on PMI.

Relationship of lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2(Lp-PLA2) and periprocedural myocardial injury in patients undergoing elective percutaneous coronary intervention.

Int J Cardiol Heart Vasc 2020 Jun 26;28:100541. Epub 2020 May 26.

Department of Cardiology, Yixing People's Hospital, Yixing, Jiangsu Province 214200, PR China.

Background: Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is one of the dominant methods for revascularization in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD). However, periprocedural myocardial injury (PMI) is a frequent complication following PCI and is known to be a predictor of postprocedural cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Although several studies try to identify serum markers to predict the PMI, there is a little information about the role of lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) as a predictor of PMI.

Polymorphisms in arsenic (+ 3 oxidation state) methyltransferase (AS3MT) predict the occurrence of hyperleukocytosis and arsenic metabolism in APL patients treated with AsO.

Arch Toxicol 2020 04 28;94(4):1203-1213. Epub 2020 Feb 28.

Department of Pharmacy, The First Affiliated Hospital, Harbin Medical University, 23 Youzheng Street, Nangang District, Harbin, 150001, China.

Polymorphisms in arsenic (+ 3 oxidation state) methyltransferase (AS3MT) have been shown to be related to interindividual variations in arsenic metabolism and to influence adverse health effects in acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) patients treated with arsenic trioxide (AsO). The occurrence of hyperleukocytosis with AsO treatment seriously affects the early survival rate of APL patients, but no definite explanation for such a complication has been clearly established. To clarify the causes of this situation, AS3MT polymorphisms 14215 (rs3740390), 14458 (rs11191439), 27215 (rs11191446), and 35991 (rs10748835) and profiles of plasma arsenic metabolites were evaluated in a group of 54 newly diagnosed APL patients treated with single-agent AsO.

J Cardiovasc Magn Reson 2020 01 16;22(1). Epub 2020 Jan 16.

Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, National Cerebral and Cardiovascular Center, 6-1 Kishibe-Shimmachi, Suita, 564-8565, Japan.

Background: Periprocedural myocardial injury (pMI) is a common complication of elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) that reduces some of the beneficial effects of coronary revascularization and impacts the risk of cardiovascular events. We developed a 3-dimensional volumetric cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) method to evaluate coronary high intensity plaques and investigated their association with pMI after elective PCI.

Methods: Between October 2012 and October 2016, 141 patients with stable coronary artery disease underwent T1-weighted CMR imaging before PCI. Read More

Indian Heart J 2019 May - Jun;71(3):224-228. Epub 2019 May 3.

Department of Community Medicine and School of Public Health, PGIMER, Chandigarh, India.

Background: Post myocardial infarction ventricular septal rupture (PMI-VSR) is a dreaded mechanical complication of acute coronary syndromes. Given that surgical mortality approaches 50%, it is pragmatic that the risk factors for mortality and outcomes after surgical correction of PMI- VSR are carefully scrutinized.

[Perioperative myocardial ischemia : Current aspects and concepts].

Anaesthesist 2019 08;68(8):497-508

Klinik für Anästhesiologie und Operative Intensivmedizin, Universitätsklinikum Schleswig-Holstein, Campus Kiel, Kiel, Deutschland.

In the future an increasing number of older patients with significant comorbidities will have to undergo major surgical procedures. Perioperative cardiovascular events account for many major complications and even fatalities. While perioperative myocardial infarction (PMI) is a generally well-known and recognized complication, the less severe myocardial injury after non-cardiac surgery (MINS) has not gained widespread scientific attention until recently; however, two large observational trials (VISION 1 and VISION 2) have shown a significantly increased mortality after MINS with even subtle increases in troponin T being associated with an increased risk of death.

Incidence and predictors of perioperative myocardial infarction in patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery in a tertiary care hospital.

Indian Heart J 2018 May - Jun;70(3):335-340. Epub 2017 Aug 30.

Department of Cardiology, JSS Super Specialty Hospital and Medical College, JSS University, Mysore 570011, Karnataka, India.

Background: The stress in the perioperative period is compounded by unpredictable and un-physiological changes in sympathetic tone, cardiovascular performance, coagulation and inflammatory responses, all of which in turn lead to alterations in plaque morphology predisposing to perioperative myocardial infarction (PMI). PMI has a considerable morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing not only high risk surgery, but also even with minor surgical interventions.

Objective: To study the incidence of PMI and its predictors in patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery in a tertiary care hospital. Read More

Impact of high-density lipoprotein 3 cholesterol subfraction on periprocedural myocardial injury in patients who underwent elective percutaneous coronary intervention.

Lipids Health Dis 2018 Feb 2;17(1):21. Epub 2018 Feb 2.

Department of Cardiology, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, 65, Tsurumai-cho, Showa-ku, Nagoya, 466-8550, Japan.

Background: Periprocedural myocardial injury (PMI) is a major complication of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and is associated with atherosclerotic coronary plaque and worse clinical outcomes. High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) is a protective factor for cardiovascular disease.
