We investigated whether preprocedural hyperglycemia was associated with contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) and long-term outcomes in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) who underwent emergency percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Patients (n = 558) with ACS who underwent emergency PCI were consecutively enrolled. Preprocedural hyperglycemia was defined as glucose levels >198 mg/dL (11 mmol/L). The primary outcome was CI-AKI (≥0.3 mg/dL absolute or ≥50% relative serum creatinine increase 48 hours after contrast medium exposure)...

Studies evaluating the risk of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) are limited. We used insurance claims data of Taiwan to establish a cohort of 6590 patients with AAA newly diagnosed from 2000 to 2008 and 6590 controls without AAA matched by propensity score. The subsequent incidence density rates of PAD were estimated in both cohorts by the end of 2011, and the AAA cohort to the non-AAA cohort hazard ratios (HRs) of PAD were calculated using Cox proportional hazards models...

Increased perivascular fat mass contributes to cardiometabolic risk (CMR). High peribrachial adipose tissue (PBAT) associates with insulin resistance independently of established CMR parameters. It is unknown to what extent periaortic adipose tissue (PAAT) may have a similar impact. In 95 participants, precise quantification of total adipose tissue, PBAT, PAAT, visceral adipose tissue (VAT), and liver fat (LF) content was performed by whole-body magnetic resonance imaging. Insulin sensitivity was determined by oral glucose tolerance test and carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT) by high-resolution ultrasound...

The recognition of cardiovascular disease (CVD) as a "male" privilege has been a commonly held concept. However, emerging data describe another reality. Heterogeneities have been convincingly demonstrated regarding CVD manifestations, risk factor burden, and prognosis between males and females. The aim of the present narrative review was to highlight sex- and gender-related discrepancies in primary and secondary CVD prevention, underscoring plausible underlying mechanisms. Manifestation of CVD in women is characterized by atypical symptoms/signs and inadequately studied pathophysiology features challenging accurate diagnosis and effective treatment...

Intra-arterial digital subtraction angiography (DSA) is commonly used for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI). The aim of this study was to analyze the incidence of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) in patients with CLI and to assess their outcomes. Between May 2013 and May 2014, a prospective and observational study was conducted with 107 patients admitted exclusively for CLI treatment. The main outcomes included hemodialysis independence (HI) and overall survival (OS), as assessed by Kaplan-Meier curves...

Data on efficacy outcomes of endovascular versus surgical revascularization in patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) in contemporary practice are limited. In this prospective cohort study, 353 consecutive patients with CLI were enrolled and allocated to endovascular (PTA [percutaneous transluminal angioplasty]), surgical (SURG), or no revascularization (No REVASC) after interdisciplinary consensus. Outcome measures were sustained primary clinical success (sPCS; survival without major amputation, repeated target extremity revascularization, and freedom from CLI), limb salvage, and amputation-free survival...

This study aims to evaluate (1) the efficacy and safety of tocilizumab (TCZ) as a steroid-sparing agent in patients with giant cell arteritis (GCA) and (2) the usefulness of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) in the follow-up and to detect disease activity. We retrospectively evaluated 12 patients with GCA treated with TCZ (8 mg/kg/mo). Pre- and posttherapy data about clinical signs and symptoms, laboratory results, FDG-PET imaging study, and the mean glucocorticoid (GC) dose were used to assess disease activity...

This retrospective, single-center study assessed the prognostic value of several emerging inflammatory markers as predictors of in-stent restenosis (ISR) after drug-eluting stent implantation for coronary chronic total occlusion (CTO) lesions. Consecutive patients (n = 416) who underwent successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for documented CTO lesions and with follow-up angiography were enrolled. Preprocedural high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP), neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR), and red cell distribution width (RDW) were analyzed...

The predictive value of the neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been demonstrated in several cardiovascular diseases. The aim of our study was to investigate the association between the preoperative NLR and aneurysm characteristics as well as 30-day postoperative morbidity and mortality in patients with thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) undergoing aortic surgical repair. Consecutive patients (n = 75) with TAA were retrospectively included over a 10-year period. Clinical characteristics, aneurysm characteristics, and 30-day postoperative outcome were recorded...

The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and apolipoprotein (Apo) B levels and the SYNergy between percutaneous coronary intervention with TAXus and cardiac surgery (SYNTAX) score (SS) in patients with stable angina pectoris. We enrolled 594 patients who were suspected to have coronary heart disease (CHD) and who underwent coronary angiography. Patients were divided into 4 groups based on the SS: normal (SS = 0, n = 154), low SS (SS ≤ 22, n = 210), intermediate SS (22 < SS < 32, n = 122), and high SS (SS ≥ 33, n = 63)...

We aimed to train podiatrists to perform a focused duplex ultrasound scan (DUS) of the tibial vessels at the ankle in diabetic patients; podiatry ankle (PodAnk) duplex scan. Thirteen podiatrists underwent an intensive 3-hour long simulation training session. Participants were then assessed performing bilateral PodAnk duplex scans of 3 diabetic patients with peripheral arterial disease. Participants were assessed using the duplex ultrasound objective structured assessment of technical skills (DUOSATS) tool and an "Imaging Score"...

Few reports have analyzed the effect of pentraxin 3 (PTX3) on platelets and their activation. We explored the association between plasma PTX3 and platelet indices. Forty-nine patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) were enrolled. Based on median PTX3, the study population was divided into group 1 (n = 25; PTX3 ≤ 0.98 ng/mL) and group 2 (n = 24; PTX3 > 0.98 ng/mL). Platelet indices investigated included mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet distribution width (PDW), platelets and large cell ratio (P-LCR), MPV to platelet count ratio (MPV/PC), platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR), and MPV to lymphocyte ratio (MPVLR)...

Syntax score (SS) and Gensini score (GS) are used to determine the complexity and severity of coronary artery disease. Although there are some studies indicating the individual relationship of these scoring systems with the carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT) and epicardial fat tissue (EFT), there was no previous study that compared the SS and GS in that respect. We aimed to assess the relationship of SS and GS with predictors of atherosclerosis. We enrolled 522 patients. There were positive correlations between GS and SS tertiles with cIMT and EFT...

Evidence suggests that psoriasis together with other cardiovascular (CV) risk factors is associated with increased vascular morbidity, but it is not clear whether psoriasis is an independent risk factor. Consecutive patients (n = 33; 35.6 ± 5.7 years; 13 females) with mild psoriasis (Psoriasis Area and Severity Index <10) without comorbidities and 33 healthy participants (36.3 ± 5.9 years; 15 females) were enrolled. Both groups underwent echocardiography, speckle tracking (2-dimensional strain echocardiography [2D-SE]), and pulse wave velocity (PWV) testing...
