Long-Term Outcomes of Stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack after Non-Emergency Percutaneous Coronary Intervention.

J Stroke Cerebrovasc Dis 2021 Jul 14;30(7):105786. Epub 2021 Apr 14.

Department of Cardiology, National University Heart Centre Singapore, Singapore; Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore, Singapore.

Objectives: Non-emergency percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has lower risk of stroke than emergency PCI. With increasing elective PCI and increasing risk of stroke after PCI, risk factors for stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA) in non-emergency PCI and long-term outcomes needs to be better characterised. We aim to identify risk factors for cerebrovascular accidents in patients undergoing non-emergency PCI and long-term outcomes after stroke or TIA. Read More

[Diseases and procedures apt to conflict with patients: an analysis of medical malpractice litigation cases].

Junko Echigo

Nihon Geka Gakkai Zasshi 2014 Jul;115(4):231-5

The aim of this study was to explore effective ways to prevent conflicts between patients and healthcare professionals by analyzing 836 malpractice cases. The analysis revealed two points that especially influence court decisions: disease prognosis and inadequate informed consent. Regarding prognosis, decisions are more in favor of the defendant (medical institution) in diseases with poor prognoses, such as sepsis and anaphylaxis, than in diseases with typically good prognoses, such as acute epiglottitis and strangulation ileus.

Association of door-in to door-out time with reperfusion delays and outcomes among patients transferred for primary percutaneous coronary intervention.

JAMA 2011 Jun;305(24):2540-7

Duke Clinical Research Institute, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina, USA.

Context: Patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) requiring interhospital transfer for primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) often have prolonged overall door-to-balloon (DTB) times from first hospital presentation to second hospital PCI. Door-in to door-out (DIDO) time, defined as the duration of time from arrival to discharge at the first or STEMI referral hospital, is a new clinical performance measure, and a DIDO time of 30 minutes or less is recommended to expedite reperfusion care.

Objective: To characterize time to reperfusion and patient outcomes associated with a DIDO time of 30 minutes or less. Read More

Is the volume-outcome relation still an issue in the era of PCI with systematic stenting? Results of the greater Paris area PCI registry.

Eur Heart J 2006 May 28;27(9):1054-60. Epub 2006 Mar 28.

Cardiology Department, Cochin Hospital, Rene Descartes University, Paris, France.

Aims: In acute myocardial infarction (AMI), primary percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTCA) is the preferred option when it can be performed rapidly. Because of the limited access to high PTCA volume centres in some areas, it has been suggested that PTCA could be performed in low-volume centres on AMI patients. Little data exist on the validity of this strategy in modern era PTCA. Read More
