RESUMO

The SYNTAX score (SS) and SS II, which include additional clinical parameters, are widely used today for deciding revascularization following coronary angiography. We investigated the association between the presence and severity of carotid artery disease (CrAD) using the SS and SS II in 287 patients who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting. We based this investigation on the known association between coronary artery disease and CrAD. A significant association was observed between the groups with and without CrAD in terms of SS II values (28.4 ± 9.6 vs 21.4 ± 7.7, respectively; P < .001). A significant difference was also observed when stenosis was classified according to severity as <50%, 50% to 70%, and >70% (P < .001). The results indicated a positive correlation between the presence and severity of CrAD as SS II increased (r = 0.187, P = .005). According to the results of multivariate logistic regression analysis, the SS II was an independent predictor of CrAD.

RESUMO

According to the literature, 40-60% of patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) have obstructive multivessel coronary artery disease (CA) and 8.8% of patients have non-obstructive CA lesions. And it is around these two groups of patients that there are active discussions and disputes regarding the choice of optimal treatment tactics and further prognosis. The aim of the study was to study clinical and laboratory features of development and course of primary AMI in patients with multi-and single-vessel obstructive lesion of the CA compared with patients with non-obstructive CA lesions. Methods. The study has included patients hospitalized "through the ambulance channel" in the Department of cardiac intensive care of municipal clinical hospital named after S. S. Yudin Moscow with a diagnosis "primary acute myocardial infarction", ACS with and without ST segment elevation, unstable angina in 2015-2016. The diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) was established at the hospital stage according to the criteria of the "Third universal definition of myocardial infarction" in 2012. The study included 1240 patients who underwent coronary angiography (CAG) no later than 12 hours from the time of admission. The first group (comparison group) consisted of patients with AMI and the first detected multivessel obstructive atherosclerotic lesion of CA (664 patients), the second (interest group) consisted of patients with AMI and non-obstructive atherosclerotic lesion of CA (96 patients) meeting the MINOCA criteria. The third group consisted of patients with single-vessel obstructive lesion and complete acute occlusion of the CA (272 patients). Patients with hemodynamically significant lesions of the left CA trunk were not included in the study. The clinical and laboratory features of the course of acute primary myocardial infarction in patients with obstructive and non-obstructive coronary atherosclerosis were studied. The generally accepted statistical processing methods were used. A year after discharge from the hospital, 727 patients (468 patients from the 1st group, 78 from the 2nd group, 181 from the 3rd group) were interviewed by means of a structured telephone survey about the course of the disease (collection of medical history). The median follow-up was 12 months. (interquartile range 11-13 months). The endpoints were: re-hospitalization for any reason, re-coronary event, death. The received answers are entered into questionnaires and statistically processed. Results and conclusions. In patients with AMI and non-obstructive atherosclerotic CA lesion, pain behind the sternum is observed one and a half times less often (54.2%) than in patients with obstructive CA lesion (MOAPCA 86.1%, OAPCA 89.7%) and the cardiac co duction system is almost three times more likely to be affected ( 30% versus 8.4% and 12%). Only 12.5% of patients in this group had an abnormal Q wave (Q - myocardial infarction) on the ECG, therefore, a smaller volume of myocardial damage and a lower level of troponin than in patients of groups 1 and 3. During the first year after the development of AMI, patients with obstructive coronary atherosclerosis did not experience repeated coronary events, there were no indications for conducting CAG, PCI or CABG, in contrast to patients with obstructive lesion of CA. For multivascular obstruction (group 1), PCI was performed in 9.6% of patients and 3.8% of CABG. PCI was performed in group 3 with obstructive single-vessel lesion of CA in 7.7% of patients. In patients with AMI and obstructive single-vessel atherosclerotic lesion of CA (group 3), two and a half times less often (9.1%) myocardial reperfusion injury is observed, while in patients with multivascular obstructive CA defeat, this syndrome was observed in 21.3%.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Patients with stable coronary artery disease and diabetes with previous percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), particularly those with previous stenting, are at high risk of ischaemic events. These patients are generally treated with aspirin. In this trial, we aimed to investigate if these patients would benefit from treatment with aspirin plus ticagrelor. METHODS: The Effect of Ticagrelor on Health Outcomes in diabEtes Mellitus patients Intervention Study (THEMIS) was a phase 3 randomised, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial, done in 1315 sites in 42 countries. Patients were eligible if 50 years or older, with type 2 diabetes, receiving anti-hyperglycaemic drugs for at least 6 months, with stable coronary artery disease, and one of three other mutually non-exclusive criteria: a history of previous PCI or of coronary artery bypass grafting, or documentation of angiographic stenosis of 50% or more in at least one coronary artery. Eligible patients were randomly assigned (1:1) to either ticagrelor or placebo, by use of an interactive voice-response or web-response system. The THEMIS-PCI trial comprised a prespecified subgroup of patients with previous PCI. The primary efficacy outcome was a composite of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, or stroke (measured in the intention-to-treat population). FINDINGS: Between Feb 17, 2014, and May 24, 2016, 11 154 patients (58% of the overall THEMIS trial) with a history of previous PCI were enrolled in the THEMIS-PCI trial. Median follow-up was 3·3 years (IQR 2·8-3·8). In the previous PCI group, fewer patients receiving ticagrelor had a primary efficacy outcome event than in the placebo group (404 [7·3%] of 5558 vs 480 [8·6%] of 5596; HR 0·85 [95% CI 0·74-0·97], p=0·013). The same effect was not observed in patients without PCI (p=0·76, pinteraction=0·16). The proportion of patients with cardiovascular death was similar in both treatment groups (174 [3·1%] with ticagrelor vs 183 (3·3%) with placebo; HR 0·96 [95% CI 0·78-1·18], p=0·68), as well as all-cause death (282 [5·1%] vs 323 [5·8%]; 0·88 [0·75-1·03], p=0·11). TIMI major bleeding occurred in 111 (2·0%) of 5536 patients receiving ticagrelor and 62 (1·1%) of 5564 patients receiving placebo (HR 2·03 [95% CI 1·48-2·76], p<0·0001), and fatal bleeding in 6 (0·1%) of 5536 patients with ticagrelor and 6 (0·1%) of 5564 with placebo (1·13 [0·36-3·50], p=0·83). Intracranial haemorrhage occurred in 33 (0·6%) and 31 (0·6%) patients (1·21 [0·74-1·97], p=0·45). Ticagrelor improved net clinical benefit: 519/5558 (9·3%) versus 617/5596 (11·0%), HR=0·85, 95% CI 0·75-0·95, p=0·005, in contrast to patients without PCI where it did not, pinteraction=0·012. Benefit was present irrespective of time from most recent PCI. INTERPRETATION: In patients with diabetes, stable coronary artery disease, and previous PCI, ticagrelor added to aspirin reduced cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, and stroke, although with increased major bleeding. In that large, easily identified population, ticagrelor provided a favourable net clinical benefit (more than in patients without history of PCI). This effect shows that long-term therapy with ticagrelor in addition to aspirin should be considered in patients with diabetes and a history of PCI who have tolerated antiplatelet therapy, have high ischaemic risk, and low bleeding risk.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: In patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of the culprit lesion reduces the risk of cardiovascular death or myocardial infarction. Whether PCI of nonculprit lesions further reduces the risk of such events is unclear. METHODS: We randomly assigned patients with STEMI and multivessel coronary artery disease who had undergone successful culprit-lesion PCI to a strategy of either complete revascularization with PCI of angiographically significant nonculprit lesions or no further revascularization. Randomization was stratified according to the intended timing of nonculprit-lesion PCI (either during or after the index hospitalization). The first coprimary outcome was the composite of cardiovascular death or myocardial infarction; the second coprimary outcome was the composite of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, or ischemia-driven revascularization. RESULTS: At a median follow-up of 3 years, the first coprimary outcome had occurred in 158 of the 2016 patients (7.8%) in the complete-revascularization group as compared with 213 of the 2025 patients (10.5%) in the culprit-lesion-only PCI group (hazard ratio, 0.74; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.60 to 0.91; P = 0.004). The second coprimary outcome had occurred in 179 patients (8.9%) in the complete-revascularization group as compared with 339 patients (16.7%) in the culprit-lesion-only PCI group (hazard ratio, 0.51; 95% CI, 0.43 to 0.61; P<0.001). For both coprimary outcomes, the benefit of complete revascularization was consistently observed regardless of the intended timing of nonculprit-lesion PCI (P = 0.62 and P = 0.27 for interaction for the first and second coprimary outcomes, respectively). CONCLUSIONS: Among patients with STEMI and multivessel coronary artery disease, complete revascularization was superior to culprit-lesion-only PCI in reducing the risk of cardiovascular death or myocardial infarction, as well as the risk of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, or ischemia-driven revascularization.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Patients with stable coronary artery disease and diabetes mellitus who have not had a myocardial infarction or stroke are at high risk for cardiovascular events. Whether adding ticagrelor to aspirin improves outcomes in this population is unclear. METHODS: In this randomized, double-blind trial, we assigned patients who were 50 years of age or older and who had stable coronary artery disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus to receive either ticagrelor plus aspirin or placebo plus aspirin. Patients with previous myocardial infarction or stroke were excluded. The primary efficacy outcome was a composite of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, or stroke. The primary safety outcome was major bleeding as defined by the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) criteria. RESULTS: A total of 19,220 patients underwent randomization. The median follow-up was 39.9 months. Permanent treatment discontinuation was more frequent with ticagrelor than placebo (34.5% vs. 25.4%). The incidence of ischemic cardiovascular events (the primary efficacy outcome) was lower in the ticagrelor group than in the placebo group (7.7% vs. 8.5%; hazard ratio, 0.90; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.81 to 0.99; P = 0.04), whereas the incidence of TIMI major bleeding was higher (2.2% vs. 1.0%; hazard ratio, 2.32; 95% CI, 1.82 to 2.94; P<0.001), as was the incidence of intracranial hemorrhage (0.7% vs. 0.5%; hazard ratio, 1.71; 95% CI, 1.18 to 2.48; P = 0.005). There was no significant difference in the incidence of fatal bleeding (0.2% vs. 0.1%; hazard ratio, 1.90; 95% CI, 0.87 to 4.15; P = 0.11). The incidence of an exploratory composite outcome of irreversible harm (death from any cause, myocardial infarction, stroke, fatal bleeding, or intracranial hemorrhage) was similar in the ticagrelor group and the placebo group (10.1% vs. 10.8%; hazard ratio, 0.93; 95% CI, 0.86 to 1.02). CONCLUSIONS: In patients with stable coronary artery disease and diabetes without a history of myocardial infarction or stroke, those who received ticagrelor plus aspirin had a lower incidence of ischemic cardiovascular events but a higher incidence of major bleeding than those who received placebo plus aspirin.

RESUMO

AIM: To analyze the postoperative electroencephalography (EEG) power changes in patients after simultaneous coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and a left- or right-sided carotid endarterectomy (CEE). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Forty-four patients with indications for surgical myocardial revascularization, including 24 patients with indications for CEE, were studied. Patients after simultaneous coronary and carotid surgery were divided into groups depending on the side of CEE: the left+CEE CABG group included 14 patients, the right CEE+CABG group included 10 patients. The group of isolated CABG consisted of 20 patients. The resting-state EEG with closed eyes was recorded before and at the 7-10th day after surgery. The changes of the spectral power (µV2/Hz), theta1 (4-6 Hz), theta2 (6-8 Hz), alpha1 (8-10 Hz), alpha2 (10-13 Hz) rhythms were analyzed, the hemispheric asymmetry (HA) coefficient of the rhythms was calculated. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: In the early postoperative period, the power of theta1 and theta2 rhythms increased compared to the preoperative level regardless of the type of cardiosurgical intervention. A local character of postoperative theta activity changes was revealed in the left+CEE CABG group, whereas the most pronounced decrease of the alpha-rhythm HA coefficient was observed in the right CEE+CABG group at the 7-10th day after surgery in comparison to the preoperative level. The results of the study suggest that the simultaneous coronary and carotid surgery does not significantly exacerbate the severity of brain damage compared to isolated CABG.

RESUMO

This study aimed to detect the expression of the long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) antisense non-coding RNA in the INK4 locus (ANRIL) and evaluate its correlation with disease risk, stenosis degree, inflammation, as well as overall survival (OS) in coronary artery disease (CAD) patients. A total of 230 patients who underwent diagnostic coronary angiography were consecutively recruited and assigned to CAD group (n=125) or control group (n=105) according to presence or absence of CAD. Gensini score was calculated to assess the severity of coronary artery damage. Plasma samples were collected and the expression ANRIL was detected in all participants. High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and cytokines including tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), interleukin (IL)-1ß, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, and IL-17 in CAD patients were measured and OS was calculated. The relative expression of ANRIL was higher in CAD patients compared to controls (P<0.001). Receiver operating characteristic disclosed that ANRIL could distinguish CAD patients from controls with an area under the curve of 0.789 (95%CI: 0.731-0.847). Spearman's rank correlation test revealed that expression of ANRIL was positively correlated with Gensini score (P=0.001), levels of hs-CRP (P=0.001), ESR (P=0.038), TNF-α (P=0.004), and IL-6 (P<0.001), while negatively correlated with IL-10 level (P=0.008) in CAD patients. Kaplan-Meier curve revealed that high expression of ANRIL was associated with shorter OS (P=0.013). In conclusion, circulating ANRIL presented a good diagnostic value for CAD, and its high expression was associated with increased stenosis degree, raised inflammation, and poor OS in CAD patients.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Simultaneous cerebral and myocardial infarction is called cardiocerebral infarction (CCI), and is rarely encountered. Because of the narrow time window and complex pathophysiology, CCI is challenging to immediately diagnose and treat. CASE PRESENTATION: A 73-year-old woman suddenly developed right hemiplegia and severe aphasia. Twelve-lead electrocardiography showed tachycardic atrial fibrillation without any significant ST-T change. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a proximal middle cerebral artery occlusion. She was immediately treated with alteplase at the dosage approved for ischemic stroke followed by mechanical thrombectomy as bridging therapy, and complete recanalization was achieved. Aphasia improved and she began to complain of chest pain, and reported that she had experienced chest discomfort just prior to right limb weakness. Coronary angiography showed a partial filling defect in the right coronary artery with rapid and adequate distal flow, for which percutaneous coronary intervention was not required. Alteplase was suggested to have effectively resolved the coronary emboli. The occlusions of the cerebral and coronary arteries were assumed to have occurred nearly simultaneously and cardiogenic embolism due to atrial fibrillation was considered as the most likely etiology. CONCLUSIONS: As seen in the present case, CCI may benefit from immediate treatment with intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (IV-tPA). Although which of percutaneous coronary intervention or cerebral thrombectomy should be performed first remains unclear, we must decide whether to rescue the brain or heart first in each patient within a limited window of time. This dilemma has recently become evident in this era with mechanical thrombectomy strongly established as an effective intervention for acute ischemic stroke. Close cooperation between stroke physicians and cardiologists is becoming more important.

RESUMO

Monocyte/lymphocyte ratio (MLR), a widely used inflammation maker for prognosis of cancer, tuberculosis, and autoimmune diseases, has attracted more and more attention for its application to cardiovascular disease. The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship of MLR with the severity of coronary lesion and clinical outcomes in non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) patients.963 consecutive NSTEMI patients (mean age, 60.77 ±â€Š11.34; 758 male) undergoing coronary angiography were analyzed and followed in 3 groups according to the average MLR tertile (low MLR <0.23, n = 321; intermediate MLR 0.23-0.35, n = 322; high MLR >0.35, n = 320) in this study. The severity of coronary lesion was determined by Gensini score. Multiple linear regression analysis was used to examine the correlation between MLR and the severity of coronary lesion. Kaplan-Meier curve was performed to compare the long-term major adverse cardiac event (MACE)-free survival. Logistic regression analysis and Cox proportional hazard regression model were used to assess the independent predictors for in-hospital and long-term MACE.MLR (B: 0.281, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.130-0.432, P < .001) and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (B: 0.017, 95% CI: 0.010-0.024, P < .001) were both independently correlated with the severity of coronary lesion, while neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio was not. The frequencies of in-hospital MACE (1.6%, 2.2%, 4.7%, P = .016) and long-term MACE (13.3%, 16.2%, 27.2%, P < .001) both increased among the 3 groups. Kaplan-Meier curve analysis indicated that patients in high MLR group had worse long-term MACE-free survival than the patients in low MLR group (P2 < .001) and intermediate MLR group (P3 = .004) during a median follow-up of 22 (12-35) months. MLR was an independent predictor for in-hospital MACE (adjusted odds ratio: 2.891, 95% CI: 1.265-8.354, P = .026) and long-term MACE (adjusted hazard ratio: 1.793, 95% CI: 1.169-2.515, P = .012) in NSTEMI patients.MLR is independently correlated with the severity of coronary lesion and has better performance to reflect the severity of coronary lesion than NLR. MLR is an independent predictor for the MACE in NSTEMI patients.

RESUMO

Introduction: Ideal management of concomitant carotid and coronary artery occlusive disease remains under investigation. Although researchers have advocated the potential benefits of varying treatment strategies based on either concomitant or staged surgical treatment, there is no consensus in treatment guidelines. With emerging data suggesting favorable outcome of carotid artery stenting (CAS) compared to carotid endarterectomy (CEA) in patients with critical coronary artery disease, physicians must consider these diverging therapeutic options. Areas covered: This review presents current evidence regarding the prevalence of carotid stenosis in patients with coronary artery disease, the common pathophysiologic links with an emphasis on the diverse mechanisms of stroke in the coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) setting and discusses the contemporary registries and observational studies comparing outcomes of various revascularization strategies in high-risk patients. Authors conducted a literature search in two bibliographic databases including papers published from 1983 until 2018 (PubMed, Scopus). Expert opinion: Symptoms should drive the need to intervene on carotid stenosis in patients undergoing coronary revascularization. Carotid artery stenting has gained significant ground, especially among those individuals considered of high surgical risk. PCI may be considered as an alternative option for the management of severe concurrent coronary disease.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: To evaluate predictors of severe or moderate coronary artery disease (CAD) in individuals with zero or very low (<10) coronary artery calcium (CAC) scores. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The 1175 asymptomatic persons with zero or very low (<10) CAC scores were analyzed for CAD stenosis using coronary computed tomography angiography. Moderate and severe CADs were defined as having more than 50% and more than 70% stenosis in any of the major coronary arteries, respectively. Age, gender, body mass index, hypertension, type II diabetes, dyslipidemia, lipid profile, creatinine, and smoking status were evaluated as predictors for moderate and severe CAD. RESULTS: In the study population, moderate and severe CADs were found in 7.5% and 3.3%, respectively. Among evaluated risk factors, age [odds ratio (OR) 1.04, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.02-1.07, p<0.001], current smoking status (OR 3.12, 95% CI 1.82-5.34, p<0.001), and CAC 1-9 (OR 1.80, 95% CI 1.08-3.00, p=0.024) were significantly associated with moderate CAD. Meanwhile, age (OR 1.05, 95% CI 1.02-1.08, p=0.003), low high density lipoprotein (HDL) (OR 0.96, 95% CI 0.93-0.99, p=0.003), and current smoking status (OR 2.34, 95% CI 1.14-5.30, p=0.022) were found to be significantly associated with severe CAD. Improvement of discrimination power for predicting severe CAD was observed when smoking and HDL cholesterol were serially added into the age model. CONCLUSION: Smoking showed significant correlations with moderate or severe CAD, and low HDL cholesterol also proved to be a predictor of severe CAD in asymptomatic individuals with extremely low CAC scores.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) should be performed in patients with any clinical probability of coronary artery disease (CAD), and whether the diagnostic performance differs between subgroups of patients. DESIGN: Prospectively designed meta-analysis of individual patient data from prospective diagnostic accuracy studies. DATA SOURCES: Medline, Embase, and Web of Science for published studies. Unpublished studies were identified via direct contact with participating investigators. ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR SELECTING STUDIES: Prospective diagnostic accuracy studies that compared coronary CTA with coronary angiography as the reference standard, using at least a 50% diameter reduction as a cutoff value for obstructive CAD. All patients needed to have a clinical indication for coronary angiography due to suspected CAD, and both tests had to be performed in all patients. Results had to be provided using 2×2 or 3×2 cross tabulations for the comparison of CTA with coronary angiography. Primary outcomes were the positive and negative predictive values of CTA as a function of clinical pretest probability of obstructive CAD, analysed by a generalised linear mixed model; calculations were performed including and excluding non-diagnostic CTA results. The no-treat/treat threshold model was used to determine the range of appropriate pretest probabilities for CTA. The threshold model was based on obtained post-test probabilities of less than 15% in case of negative CTA and above 50% in case of positive CTA. Sex, angina pectoris type, age, and number of computed tomography detector rows were used as clinical variables to analyse the diagnostic performance in relevant subgroups. RESULTS: Individual patient data from 5332 patients from 65 prospective diagnostic accuracy studies were retrieved. For a pretest probability range of 7-67%, the treat threshold of more than 50% and the no-treat threshold of less than 15% post-test probability were obtained using CTA. At a pretest probability of 7%, the positive predictive value of CTA was 50.9% (95% confidence interval 43.3% to 57.7%) and the negative predictive value of CTA was 97.8% (96.4% to 98.7%); corresponding values at a pretest probability of 67% were 82.7% (78.3% to 86.2%) and 85.0% (80.2% to 88.9%), respectively. The overall sensitivity of CTA was 95.2% (92.6% to 96.9%) and the specificity was 79.2% (74.9% to 82.9%). CTA using more than 64 detector rows was associated with a higher empirical sensitivity than CTA using up to 64 rows (93.4% v 86.5%, P=0.002) and specificity (84.4% v 72.6%, P<0.001). The area under the receiver-operating-characteristic curve for CTA was 0.897 (0.889 to 0.906), and the diagnostic performance of CTA was slightly lower in women than in with men (area under the curve 0.874 (0.858 to 0.890) v 0.907 (0.897 to 0.916), P<0.001). The diagnostic performance of CTA was slightly lower in patients older than 75 (0.864 (0.834 to 0.894), P=0.018 v all other age groups) and was not significantly influenced by angina pectoris type (typical angina 0.895 (0.873 to 0.917), atypical angina 0.898 (0.884 to 0.913), non-anginal chest pain 0.884 (0.870 to 0.899), other chest discomfort 0.915 (0.897 to 0.934)). CONCLUSIONS: In a no-treat/treat threshold model, the diagnosis of obstructive CAD using coronary CTA in patients with stable chest pain was most accurate when the clinical pretest probability was between 7% and 67%. Performance of CTA was not influenced by the angina pectoris type and was slightly higher in men and lower in older patients. SYSTEMATIC REVIEW REGISTRATION: PROSPERO CRD42012002780.

RESUMO

The study aimed to study the related factors of hypertension using multivariate logistic regression analysis and tabu search-based Bayesian Networks (BNs). A cluster random sampling method was adopted to obtain samples of the general population aged 15 years or above. Multivariate logistic regression analysis indicated that gender, age, cultural level, body mass index (BMI), central obesity, drinking, diabetes mellitus, Myocardial infarction, Coronary heart disease, Stroke are associated with hypertension. While BNs found connections between those related factors and hypertension were established by complex network structure, age, smoking, occupation, cultural level, BMI, central obesity, drinking, diabetes mellitus, myocardial infarction, coronary heart disease, nephropathy, stroke were direct connection with hypertension, gender was indirectly linked to hypertension through drinking. The results showed that BNs can not only find out the correlative factors of hypertension but also analyze how these factors affect hypertension and their interrelationships, which is consistent with practical theory better than logistic regression and has a better application prospects.

RESUMO

New-onset atrial fibrillation (NOAF) has been associated with poor outcome in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACSs). The objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between the development of NOAF and severity of coronary artery disease using the SYNTAX score (SS) and SYNTAX score II (SSII) in patients with non-ST-segment elevation ACS (NSTE-ACS) who were treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). A total of 662 patients with NSTE-ACS were consecutively enrolled. The incidence of NOAF was 11.4% among the patients with NSTE-ACS. Mean age was significantly higher in NOAF group (P = .011). White blood cell count, peak troponin I, high sensitivity C-reactive protein, uric acid, left atrial volume index, and ratio between early mitral inflow velocity and mitral annular early diastolic velocity were significantly higher in NOAF group (respectively, P = .024, P = .017, P = .002, P = .009, P = .025, P < .001, and P < .001). The hemoglobin, ejection fraction, and post PCI thrombolysis in myocardial infarction grade <3 were significantly lower in NOAF group (P = 001, P = .010, P = .038). The SS and SSII were significantly higher in NOAF group (all P < .001). According to the results of multivariate logistic regression analysis, the SSII was correlated with NOAF (P < .001) in the study groups. We demonstrated that high SSII is significantly associated with NOAF.

RESUMO

ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is the most acute manifestation of coronary artery disease and is associated with great morbidity and mortality. A complete thrombotic occlusion developing from an atherosclerotic plaque in an epicardial coronary vessel is the cause of STEMI in the majority of cases. Early diagnosis and immediate reperfusion are the most effective ways to limit myocardial ischaemia and infarct size and thereby reduce the risk of post-STEMI complications and heart failure. Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has become the preferred reperfusion strategy in patients with STEMI; if PCI cannot be performed within 120 minutes of STEMI diagnosis, fibrinolysis therapy should be administered to dissolve the occluding thrombus. The initiation of networks to provide around-the-clock cardiac catheterization availability and the generation of standard operating procedures within hospital systems have helped to reduce the time to reperfusion therapy. Together with new advances in antithrombotic therapy and preventive measures, these developments have resulted in a decrease in mortality from STEMI. However, a substantial amount of patients still experience recurrent cardiovascular events after STEMI. New insights have been gained regarding the pathophysiology of STEMI and feed into the development of new treatment strategies.

RESUMO

Background: Kawasaki disease (KD) is the most common acute coronary vasculitis to occur in children. Although we have uncovered global DNA hypomethylation in KD, its underlying cause remains uncertain. In this study, we performed a survey of transcript levels of DNA methyltransferases and demethylases in KD patients. Materials and Methods: We recruited 145 participants for this study. The chip studies consisted of 18 KD patients that were analyzed before undergoing intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) treatment and at least 3 weeks after IVIG treatment, as well as 36 control subjects, using Affymetrix GeneChip® Human Transcriptome Array 2.0. An additional study of 91 subjects was performed in order to validate real-time quantitative PCR. Results: In our microarray study, the mRNA levels of DNMT1 and DNMT3A were significantly lower while TET2 was higher in acute-stage KD patients compared to the healthy controls. Through PCR validation, we observed that the expression of DNMT1 and TET2 are consistent with the Transcriptome Array 2.0 results. Furthermore, we observed significantly lower DMNT1 mRNA levels following IVIG treatment between those who developed CAL and those who did not. Conclusion: Our findings provide an evidence of DNA methyltransferases and demethylases changes and are among the first report that transient DNA hypomethylation is induced during acute inflammatory phase of Kawasaki disease.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The optimal technique of percutaneous coronary intervention in patients at high bleeding risk is not known. The hypothesis of the DEBUT trial was that percutaneous coronary intervention with drug-coated balloons is non-inferior to percutaneous coronary intervention with bare-metal stents for this population. METHODS: The DEBUT trial is a randomised, single-blind non-inferiority trial done at five sites in Finland. Patients were eligible if they had an ischaemic de-novo lesion in a coronary artery or bypass graft that could be treated with drug-coated balloons, at least one risk factor for bleeding, and a reference vessel diameter of 2·5-4·0 mm. Those with myocardial infarction with ST-elevation, bifurcation lesions needing a two-stent technique, in-stent restenosis, and flow-limiting dissection or substantial recoil (>30%) of the target lesion after predilation were excluded. After successful predilation of the target lesion, patients were randomly assigned (1:1), by use of a computer-generated random sequence, to percutaneous coronary intervention with a balloon coated with paclitaxel and iopromide or a bare-metal stent. The primary outcome was major adverse cardiac events at 9 months. Non-inferiority was shown if the absolute risk difference was no more than 3%. All prespecified analyses were done in the intention-to-treat population. This trial is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, number NCT01781546. FINDINGS: Between May 22, 2013, and Jan 16, 2017, 220 patients were recruited for the study and 208 patients were assigned to percutaneous coronary intervention with drug-coated balloon (n=102) or bare metal stent (n=106). At 9 months, major adverse cardiac events had occurred in one patient (1%) in the drug-coated balloon group and in 15 patients (14%) in the bare-metal stent group (absolute risk difference -13·2 percentage points [95% CI -6·2 to -21·1], risk ratio 0·07 [95% CI 0·01 to 0·52]; p<0·00001 for non-inferiority and p=0·00034 for superiority). Two definitive stent thrombosis events occurred in the bare metal stent group but no acute vessel closures in the drug-coated balloon group. INTERPRETATIONS: Percutaneous coronary intervention with drug-coated balloon was superior to bare-metal stents in patients at bleeding risk. The drug-coated balloon-only coronary intervention is a novel strategy to treat this difficult patient population. Comparison of this approach to the new generation drug-eluting stents is warranted in the future.

RESUMO

Spontaneous coronary artery rupture (SCAR) is an extremely rare, life-threatening entity without any previous underlying diseases. The clinical presentation may differ according to the site of the rupture and some patients may deteriorate early into sudden death due to the abrupt evolution of the associated cardiac tamponade and cardiogenic shock.1) The correct diagnosis of SCAR deserves a high level of suspicion. It may be confirmed as a differential diagnosis in patients with cardiac tamponade using transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and computed tomography angiography (CTA) following emergency pericardiocentesis, and a definite diagnosis can be achieved by selective angiography. Although SCAR is associated with a dismal prognosis, some patients have recovered through emergency surgical operations or catheter interventions.2) We report the case of a patient presenting cardiac tamponade and cardiogenic shock due to spontaneous rupture of the circumflex branch of the left coronary artery, which was successfully isolated by bilateral ligation.
