Clinical Factors Associated with Long Fluoroscopy Time in Percutaneous Coronary Interventions to the Culprit Lesion of Non-ST-Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction.

Int Heart J 2021 Mar 17;62(2):282-289. Epub 2021 Mar 17.

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Saitama Medical Center, Jichi Medical University.

The clinical outcomes of patients with non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) were comparable or even worse than those with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Although successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) to the culprit lesions of NSTEMI would improve the clinical outcomes, some PCI require long fluoroscopy time, reflecting the difficulty of PCI. This study aims to find clinical factors associated with long fluoroscopy time in PCI to the culprit lesion of NSTEMI. Read More

NSTE-ACS ESC Guidelines Recommend Prasugrel as the Preferred P2Y12 Inhibitor: A Contrarian View.

Am J Cardiovasc Drugs 2021 Mar 6. Epub 2021 Mar 6.

Cardiology Department, Loire Valley Cardiovascular Collaboration & EA4245 T2i, CHRU de Tours & Tours University, 10, boulevard Tonnellé, Tours, 37000, France.

In the 2020 European Society of Cardiology guidelines on non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTE-ACS), the experts proposed to put an end to the equipoise of ticagrelor and prasugrel in addition to aspirin in patients with NSTE-ACS who proceed to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). They gave a strong level of recommendation (IIa) in favor of prasugrel over ticagrelor in these patients. We challenge this proposition, which was mainly driven by the results of ISAR-REACT 5, an open-label prospective head-to-head study of a prasugrel-based strategy compared with a ticagrelor-based strategy in patients with ACS undergoing PCI.

Ann Palliat Med 2021 Mar 4;10(3):2448-2457. Epub 2021 Jan 4.

School of Pharmacy, Nantong University, Nantong, China.

Background: It has been estimated that nearly one-fifth post-percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) patients treated with clopidogrel continued to have recurrent thrombotic events, which implied the limitation of "one-size-fits all" strategy for antiplatelet therapy.

Methods: From July 2017 to April 2019, patients with acute coronary syndrome [ACS, including unstable angina (UA), non-ST segment elevation myocardial infraction (NSTEMI), and ST segment elevation myocardial infraction (STEMI)] or old myocardial infarction (OMI), or patients without coronary heart disease (non-CAD) were retrospectively enrolled in this study. For CAD patients undergoing PCI, standard dual antiplatelet therapy (100 mg aspirin and 75 mg clopidogrel) was prescribed. Read More

The accuracy of distribution of non-ST elevation electrocardiographic changes in localising the culprit vessel in non-ST elevation myocardial infarction.

Arch Med Sci Atheroscler Dis 2020 10;5:e226-e229. Epub 2020 Sep 10.

Division of Cardiology, University of California Log Angeles-Harbor Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

Introduction: ST-segment elevation distribution on electrocardiogram (ECG) in patients presenting with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) accurately localises the culprit vessel. However, the utility of the ECG changes in localising the coronary culprit territory in the setting of non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) is not well established.

Material And Methods: This study included patients presenting with NSTEMI, who had dynamic non-ST elevation ischaemic changes in one or more ECG leads and underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in a single vessel between October 2011 and November 2017 in a single university hospital institution.

Cardiac Surgery, College of Physicians and Surgeons Pakistan, Karachi, PAK.

Introduction Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is a devastating medical emergency that requires immediate pharmacological and radiological intervention. With the advent of techniques such as percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), pacemakers, and percussion pacing, survival rates have improved significantly. However, there are certain factors and complications associated with AMI that still lead to a high mortality rate, such as old age, advanced heart disease, diabetes mellitus (DM), and arrhythmias.
