RESUMO

Congenital coronary anomalies are uncommon with rarest being absent left circumflex artery (LCX) having prevalence of 0.003%. We report a case of a 68 year old male having acute coronary syndrome and left ventricular dysfunction whose coronary angiogram showed an absent LCX with super dominant right coronary artery (RCA). Precise morphological evaluation is needed for best suited management strategy.

RESUMO

Objective: To analyze the clinical, radiologic characteristics, and outcome of consecutive patients with primary cardiac angiosarcoma. Methods: The medical records of patients with primary cardiac angiosarcoma diagnosed through pathology at Peking Union Medical College Hospital between January 2001 and May 2018 were obtained. The results of echocardiography, coronary artery CT angiography (CTA), cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR), positron emission computed tomography (PET-CT), operation, postoperative treatment and prognosis of the patients were analyzed. Results: A total of 16 patients were included, 9 were male, 7 were female, the median age was 42.5 years (31.7, 52.5). The interval from symptoms onset to diagnosis was 4.5 months (0.5-18.0 months). Eight patients were diagnosed at non-metastatic phase, while 8 patients were in metastatic phase. The main complaints were dyspnea, short breath, chest pain, hemoptysis, syncope, edema, fever, fatigue, and cough. Three patients (18.8%) had pericardial tamponade in the course of the disease. Echocardiography was performed on all 16 patients, cardiac mass was found in 12 patients, and pericardial effusion or pericardial thickening was observed in 4 patients. In 8 cases with results of coronary CTA, 5 cases presented signs of right atrium occupation, 1 case presented sign of right ventricle occupation, and 1 case presented isolated massive pericardial effusion. None abnormality was found in 1 case. Of the 7 patients who underwent CMR, 6 presented with right atrium mass occupation and 1 mediastinal mass. Four patients received PET-CT examination and results showed that all presented with hypermetabolic lesions: 2 in right atrium, 1 in pericardium, and 1 in mediastinum, and lung metastasis was found in 2 cases. Among the 16 patients, 13 received surgical treatment, 2 received adjuvant chemotherapy, and 1 received chemotherapy and radiotherapy after biopsy. The median overall survival was 3.0 months. Conclusion: Cardiac angiosarcoma is a rare malignancy with poor prognosis, and echocardiography has only limited diagnostic value for angiosarcoma. CMR, CTA or PET-CT examinations could provide valuable clues for the diagnosis of this rare disease.

RESUMO

The relationship between preexisting atherosclerotic lesion characteristics and neointimal thickness after second-generation drug-eluting stent (DES) placement is still unknown. Thus, we evaluated that relationship using optical coherence tomography (OCT).A single-center, retrospective, observational study was conducted. Patients with stable angina or asymptomatic myocardial ischemia who received percutaneous coronary intervention for a de novo lesion using a second-generation DES under frequency domain OCT guidance and underwent follow-up coronary angiography (CAG) and OCT between December 2010 and December 2015 were included. The relationship between the neointimal thickness on the stent strut and the plaque characteristics was retrospectively evaluated using OCT immediately after stent implantation and at the time of follow-up CAG.We analyzed 3459 struts from 20 stents in 15 patients. The mean follow-up period was 264 days. In the follow-up study, no angiographic in-stent restenosis was found. Of the 3459 struts, 3315 (95.8%) were covered with neointima. The median neointimal thicknesses of the stent struts on calcified, fibrous, and lipid-rich lesions were 20 µm (interquartile range [IQR], 10-50 µm), 70 µm (40-140 µm; P < .001), and 90 µm (50-170 µm; P < .001), respectively. These differences were observed regardless of the type of second-generation DES used.Most of the stent struts were covered with neointima. The neointimal thickness after the second-generation DES implantation had a close relationship with the preexisting atherosclerotic lesion characteristics. In this study, we found differences in arterial healing processes due to underlying plaque; therefore, evaluating the lesion characteristics by OCT may predict the risk for future restenosis and thrombosis.

RESUMO

Background: The presence of vitamin D, and parathyroid hormone receptors has been demonstrated in the vascular endothelium. Variations in vitamin D, and parathyroid hormone levels may affect coronary flow and cause the coronary slow-flow phenomenon (CSF). Methods: We enrolled 93 patients who had undergone coronary angiography and had near-normal coronary arteries. Blood samples were taken to determine the calcium, phosphorus, 25-hydroxy vitamin D, and parathyroid hormone levels. Vitamin D deficiency was defined as a serum 25-hydroxy vitamin D level of less than 20 ng/mL. We divided the study population into two groups according to thrombolysis in myocardial infarction frame count (TFC) levels. Results: Patients with TFC ≤27 were in the control group (n = 39), and those with TFC >27 were in the CSF group (n = 54). 25-Hydroxy vitamin D levels were similar in both groups: 17.5 [3.3-36.1] ng/ml in the CSF group and 15.2 [5.3-34] ng/ml in the control group (P = 0.129). When we analyzed TFC for each of the coronary arteries, we found a weak negative correlation between vitamin D level and TFC of the right coronary artery in the CSF group (r = -0.314, P = 0.021). Parathyroid hormone levels were similar in both groups: 48 [16-140] pg/ml in the CSF group and 52 [25-125] pg/ml in the control group (P = 0.297). Conclusion: The study failed to demonstrate a relationship between serum parathyroid hormone level and CSF. However, a weak negative correlation was found between vitamin D level and TFC of the right coronary artery.

RESUMO

Objective: To compare the efficacy and safety of active transfer of plaque (ATP) versus provisional stenting (PS) with drug-eluting stents (DES) for the treatment of coronary bifurcation lesions. Methods: A total of 1 136 patients with bifurcation lesions hospitalized in 6 selected hospitals between January 2010 and January 2014 were included in this prospective observational trial, patients were divided into either ATP (n=560) or PS group (n=576) accordingly. The primary endpoint was target lesion revascularization within 1 year, and the second endpoints were all-cause death, cardiogenic death, myocardial infarction, stent thrombosis, stroke, recurrent angina within 1 year. Results: There were no significant differences in age, sex, hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia and smoking history between the two groups (P>0.05). The incidence of TIMI blood flow <3 grade in the side branch (1.6%(9/560) vs. 7.5% (43/576), P<0.01), acute occlusion of the side branch (1.3%(7/560) vs. 7.1%(41/576), P<0.01) and implanted stents of side branch (1.8%(10/560) vs. 7.8% (45/576), P<0.01) were significantly lower in the ATP group than those in the PS group. During the one year follow up, the rate of target lesion revascularization was similar between ATP group and PS group (4.6%(26/560) vs. 4.0%(23/576), P=0.66). Conclusions: The effectiveness and safetyof ATP techniquein the patients with coronary bifurcation lesions is comparable to the PS technique. However, ATP technique is superior to PS technique on effectively reducing the incidence of implanted stents in the side branch.

RESUMO

The effect of pre-existing collateral circulation on presentation of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is not well known. We present a case of a 54-year-old male with a known history of chronic total occlusion of left circumflex artery and well-developed collaterals, who presented to the emergency department with non-STsegment elevation myocardial infarction. He underwent urgent coronary angiogram which showed an acute total thrombotic occlusion in proximal large right coronary artery with collaterals from left to right. After percutaneous coronary intervention, the collaterals reversed to a right to left direction. We postulate that the well-developed collateral circulation protected the patient from larger transmural ischemia and ST elevation myocardial infarction.

RESUMO

Objective - analysis of coronary angiography data in long-term period after coronary artery bypass surgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS: There were 78 patients (75 (96.2%) men and 3 (3.8%) women) with recurrent angina pectoris after CABG. Postoperative follow-up period ranged from 1 month to 8 years. RESULTS: There were 104 and 39 local stenoses and occlusions de novo, respectively. New local stenoses appeared in 31 arteries with patent bypass grafts and in 18 arteries with closed graft. There were 143 (60.3%) patent and 94 (39.7%) occluded grafts. All grafts (n=4, 100%) were patent after bypass grafting of one coronary artery, 3 (13.7%) grafts were occluded after bypass grafting of 2 coronary arteries. Occlusion of 57 (45.2%) out of 126 grafts was noted after bypass grafting of 3 coronary arteries, in case of grafting of 4coronary arteries - 34 (40%) out of 85 grafts. CONCLUSION: Thus, the main causes of thrombosis of the grafts were poor distal vessels, technical errors in harvesting and implantation of the grafts, mediastinitis, overestimated indications for surgery (coronary stenoses <50%), progression of atherosclerotic process, usage of venous grafts. Also, there is a direct relationship between transplant thrombosis and the number of bypassed coronary arteries.

RESUMO

Myocardial infarction (MI) is a major cause of cardiovascular mortality. Inferior MI accounts for 30-50% of infarctions but it is associated with a favorable prognosis compared to anterior infarct. This study aimed to study the epidemiological, clinical, electrical, echocardiographic, angiographic features of inferior MI, as well as its complications and its therapeutic approaches. Over a period of 3 years, we admitted 720 patients with STEMI, of whom 103 with inferior STEMI, reflecting a rate of 14.3%. There was a clear male predominance, with an average age of 58 years (men) and 62 years (women). Smoking was the main risk factor for cardiovascular disease (57.28% of patients were smokers). Right ventricular infarction was found in 11.65% of cases. Half of these patients had hemodynamic instability. Third-degree atrioventricular block was diagnosed in 12.6% of patients. Therapeutic approach was based on thrombolysis (7 patients) and coronary angiogram (42 patients). Inferior MI was caused by right coronary lesion in 53% of cases and circumflex artery occlusion in 47% of cases. Right coronary is responsible for right ventricular infarction in 100% of cases. Coronary angioplasty was performed in 18 patients after coronary angiogram. Eleven patients underwent transluminal coronary angioplasty in the right coronary while 2 patients underwent transluminal coronary angioplasty in the circumflex artery. Early mortality at 30 days was 1.94%. In the right ventricular infarction group mortality rate was about 17%.

RESUMO

Pulmonary embolism is an acute and severe medical condition. Its clinical characteristics are not pathognomonic and can mimick other medico-surgical emergencies. We report the case of a patient admitted with a clinical manifestation of acute coronary syndrome with electrical changes and elevation in cardiac enzymes without abnormal substrate on the coronarography, enabling diagnosis of pulmonary embolism.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: We evaluated the incidence, predictors, and prognosis of coronary artery aneurysm (CAA) after second-generation drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 976 consecutive patients (1245 lesions) who underwent follow-up angiography after second-generation DES implantation were analyzed. Incidence and predictors of CAA were assessed, and clinical prognosis was compared with 34 cases of CAA after first-generation DES implantation using previous CAA registry data. RESULTS: All 10 cases of CAA (0.80% per lesion) in 10 patients (1.02% per patient) were detected at follow up. Compared to lesions without CAA, those with CAA had greater involvement of the proximal segment (90% vs. 51%, p=0.014), a higher proportion of pre-intervention, a Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction score of 0 or 1 flow (80% vs. 16%, p<0.001), more chronic total occlusions (40% vs. 10%, p<0.001), and longer implanted stents (41.9±23.2 mm vs. 28.8±14.8 mm, p=0.006). As for CAA morphology, instances of CAA after second-generation DES were predominantly the single fusiform type (90%), whereas instances of CAA after first-generation DES were multiple saccular (47%) and single saccular (35%) types (p<0.001). Myocardial infarction with stent thrombosis occurred in 5 patients with CAA after first-generation DES (15%), and no adverse events were observed in patients with CAA after second-generation DES over a median follow-up duration of 4.3 years (p=0.047, log-rank). CONCLUSION: Although CAAs after second-generation DES implantation were detected at a similar incidence to that for CAAs after first-generation DES implantation, second-generation DES-related CAAs had different morphologies and more benign clinical outcomes versus first-generation DES-related CAAs.

RESUMO

RATIONALE: Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a rare, complex disease, and nowadays poorly understood. The overall incidence of SCAD ranges from 0.28% to 1.1% in angiographic studies. Therefore, the true incidence of SCAD is most likely underestimated due to asymptomatic or sudden cardiac death before diagnosis. Stent fracture (SF) is a multifactorial issue. Longer vessel remodeled by 2 stents can be more prone to have SF due to higher radial force. PATIENT CONCERNS: In this paper we report a 48-year-old man with chest pain for 2 years. DIAGNOSES: Elective coronary angiography revealed a linear dissection in obtuse marginal branch (OM). INTERVENTIONS: He underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with the guidance of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). OUTCOMES: Then SF was revealed 9 months later. LESSONS: This is the first case report of SF after coronary intervention therapy in SCAD patients.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: BVS proved safe in humans. ABSORB trials showed them performing similar to Drug Eluting Stents in simple coronary interventions. We assessed a registry of 63 patients with bifurcation lesions, treated by BVS and followed their outcomes up-to 5 years. METHODS: Patients who satisfied the inclusion criteria were included. Data about contact information, baseline characteristics, findings of coronary angiogram, details of their interventional treatment; short and long-term outcomes up till 5 years was collected. RESULTS: Acute feasibility of implantation in bifurcation was high (98 %). Rate of stent thrombosis, acute or sub-acute, was 3.1 %. Rate of re-intervention was 38 %. The average time for an event to occur was 1.6±0.8 years. Over 5 years, 56 % had developed MACE. Patients with MACE were more likely females, hypertensive, smokers, with acute presentations (p=NS), and diabetic (72 % vs 33 % non-diabetic; p=0.002). Patients treated with hybrid strategy of BVS and DES were more likely to develop MACE (64 % vs 49 % for others; P=ns). Patients treated by simple provisional stenting were less likely to develop MACE (45 % vs 60.5 %; p=ns). The average SYNTAX score of MACE patients was 27 vs 20; p=0.06). Diabetes was independently associated with MACE. Hypertension was of borderline statistical significance (2-sided Log rank for Hypertension p=0.06, for Diabetes p=0.01). DISCUSSION: The use of multiple stenting strategies to treat true bifurcation lesions using BVS is feasible with low rate of serious adverse events, albeit on the long run, the rate of re-intervention is high and stringent follow up is required (Tab. 7, Fig. 3, Ref. 37).

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Chronic stable angina (CSA) is a cardiovascular disease with high prevalence. At present, drug treatment is still the main measure of stable angina pectoris. Traditional Chinese medicine has a long history in the treatment of CSA. Qi stagnation and Blood stasis syndrome is a common syndrome of CSA. Xinnaoning (XNN) capsule is considered as an effective adjuvant treatment for CSA with the efficacy of promoting qi and blood circulation but lack of high-quality clinical evidence. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of XNN capsule compared with placebo by clinical trial. METHODS: This multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial will be conducted with a total of 240 participants diagnosed with chronic stable angina (qi stagnation and blood stasis syndrome). The participants will be randomized (1:1) into groups receiving either XNN or placebo for 12 weeks. After a 2-week run-in period, they will receive either XNN or placebo (3 pills, 3 times daily) for 12 weeks on the basis of conventional therapy. The primary outcomes include changes in the integral scores of angina symptoms. The secondary outcome measures include changes in the total score of traditional Chinese medicine syndrome, severity grading of angina pectoris, the number of angina pectoris per week, nitroglycerin dosage, score of seattle angina scale, serum homocysteine, incidence of cardiovascular events. Safety outcomes will also be assessed. Adverse events will be monitored throughout the trial. RESULTS: This study will investigate whether XNN capsule can alleviate clinical symptoms, and improve quality of life of patients with chronic stable angina (qi stagnation and blood stasis syndrome). The results of this study will provide clinical evidence for the application of XNN capsule in the treatment of chronic stable angina. TRIAL REGISTRATION: ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT03914131.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) is acute renal failure observed after administration of iodinated contrast media during angiographic or other medical procedures. In recent years, many studies have focused on biomarkers that recognize CIN and/or predict its development in advance. One of the many biomarkers studied is the platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR). We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the correlation between PLR level and CIN. METHODS: Relevant studies were searched in PUBMED, EMBASE, and Web of Science until September 15, 2018. Case-control studies reporting admission PLR levels in CIN and non-CIN group in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) were included. The pooled weighted mean difference (WMD) and 95% confidence intervals (95%CI) were calculated to assess the association between PLR level and CIN using a random-effect model. RESULTS: Six relevant studies involving a total of 10452 ACS patients (9720 non-CIN controls and 732 CIN patients) met our inclusion criteria. A meta-analysis of 6 case-control studies showed that PLR levels were significantly higher in CIN group than those in non-CIN group (WMD = 33.343, 95%CI = 18.863 to 47.823, P < .001, I = 88.0%). CONCLUSION: For patients with ACS after contrast administration, our meta-analysis shows that on-admission PLR levels in CIN group are significantly higher than those of non-CIN group. However, large and matched cohort studies are needed to validate these findings and assess whether there is a real connection or just an association.

RESUMO

Despite the health benefits of routine exercise, coronary artery disease (CAD) is common among older competitive athletes and is an important cause of sudden cardiac death. Athletes with suspected or confirmed CAD routinely undergo conventional coronary angiography involving the performance of invasive coronary physiological assessment using the fractional flow reserve (FFR) or the instantaneous-wave free ratio (iFR). Data defining the role of invasive coronary physiological assessment, while robust in general clinical populations, are untested among older competitive athletes with CAD. The paper discusses the challenges and uncertainties surrounding the use of the FFR and iFR in this unique population with an emphasis on the need for future work to better define this approach
