We compared outcomes between biodegradable polymer biolimus-eluting stent (BP-BES) and new-generation durable polymer drug-eluting stent (DP-DES) implantations in patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI). Among 13472 patients with acute MI in a nationwide registry, 557 (64.8%) were in the BP-BES and 303 (35.2%) in the new-generation DP-DES group following coronary reperfusion. The occurrence of major adverse cardiac events (MACE; death, MI, revascularization) and stent thrombosis was compared. Major adverse cardiac events occurred in 53 (6...

BACKGROUND: We evaluated the 1-year outcomes of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for elderly patients (aged ≥ 80 years) in the second-generation drug-eluting stent (DES) era. METHODS AND RESULTS: Between August 2012 and July 2013, 1923 consecutive patients (mean age, 71 ± 11 years; ≥80 years, 23%; men, 77%) who underwent 2250 elective/urgent PCI procedures were enrolled in the Shinshu Prospective Multicenter Analysis for Elderly Patients with Coronary Artery Disease Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention registry...

The relationship between contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) and oxidative mechanisms is well documented. Our aim was to demonstrate the possible relationship between CIN and serum bilirubin as an antioxidant molecule. This retrospective study included 359 patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) who underwent peripheral diagnostic angiography; 179 developed CIN after the intervention and another 180 were the control group, matched for age, gender, and cardiovascular risk factors. Baseline, 48- to 72-hour, and 30-day laboratory values, major adverse cardiovascular events, and dialysis requirements were recorded...

We evaluated the effect of long-term administration of nicorandil on endothelial function of the radial artery in patients with angina undergoing elective transradial coronary intervention (TRI). A total of 127 patients were randomly assigned to nicorandil (standard medication plus nicorandil 5 mg twice daily, n = 64) or control group (standard medication except nicorandil, n = 63) immediately after TRI procedure. Radial artery diameter (RAD), flow-mediated dilation (FMD), and nitroglycerin-mediated dilation (NMD) of radial artery were measured 1 day before TRI as well as 1 day and 3 months after TRI by Ultrasound-Doppler...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about the predictors and prognostic impact of recurrent in-hospital ischemia and infarction in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Our objectives were to determine the baseline characteristics, risk factors, and long-term outcomes of patients with recurrent myocardial infarction (Re-MI). METHODS: We evaluated patients with ACS who were enrolled in the second Gulf Registry of Acute Coronary Events from October 2008 to June 2009...

We investigated whether high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) levels were associated with contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) and long-term mortality after coronary angiography (CAG). Patients (N = 2133) undergoing CAG with preprocedural hsCRP were consecutively enrolled. High-sensitivity C-reactive protein was measured before angiography. Median follow-up was 2.3 years. The overall incidence of CIN was 2.77% (59 of 2133). There was a positive trend of hsCRP quartiles (Q) with rates of CIN: 0.9% for Q1 (<1...

Study on 295 consecutive medical patients to evaluate the potential of routine blood tests to identify the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). The tests included in a DVT risk stratification model system were erythrocyte sedimentation rate, antithrombin III, C-reactive protein, D-dimer, and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide. The DVT risk stratification system was moderately prognostic (area under the curve: 0.838; 95% confidence interval: 0.771-0.904; P < .001), whereas its performance was as follows-sensitivity, 100%; specificity, 20%; positive predictive value, 21%; and negative predictive value, 100%...

Cardiovascular (CV) disease (CVD) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Most CV events are caused by atherosclerosis. Diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance are associated with greater carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) and increased risk for CVD. The present study examined if common carotid artery IMT (CCAIMT) is predictive of CVD irrespective of glucose tolerance category and glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in a sample of 639 women with different glucose tolerance categories. During 7-year follow-up, 30 events in the cardiac and 32 events in the cerebral territory were documented...

Arterial hypertension (AH) is a major risk factor for chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, whether AH maintains this role in the development of CKD in elderly patients with aortic stenosis (AS) or whether transaortic gradient influences CKD remains unclear. Consecutive hospitalized patients were prospectively recruited to evaluate the relationship between AS and CKD. In all patients, transthoracic 2-dimensional echocardiography was performed to evaluate AS; renal function was evaluated using the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration formula...

We investigated the role of systolic blood pressure (SBP) in relation to in-hospital and postdischarge mortality in patients admitted with acute heart failure (AHF). The SBP of 4848 patients aged ≥18 years admitted with AHF was categorized into 5 groups: ≤90, 91 to 119, 120 to 139, 140 to 161, and >161 mm Hg. After adjusting for several confounders, multivariate logistic regression models showed that admission SBP was a significant predictor of mortality among both patients with preserved left ventricular function (defined as left ventricular ejection fraction [LVEF] ≥40%) and patients with left ventricular dysfunction (LVEF <40%)...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a recognized complication post-endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). Neutrophil gelatin-associated lipocalin (NGAL), interleukin 18 (IL-18), and retinol-binding protein are emerging urinary biomarkers that have shown promise in detecting subclinical and clinical renal impairment. In this study, we assessed changes in these urinary biomarkers as well as serum creatinine (SCr) in patients undergoing EVAR. Urine samples were collected prospectively at 5 time points for each recruited patient: pre-EVAR (baseline) and 6, 12, 24, and 48 hours after the procedure for serial assessment of urinary biomarkers...

Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) is a common complication of coronary angiography/percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Identification of high-risk patients and optimal periprocedural management are key points to reduce the incidence of this iatrogenic complication. We evaluated the impact of gender on CIN after coronary angiography/PCI. We enrolled 2851 consecutive patients (730 females and 1851 males) undergoing coronary angiography/PCI. Baseline clinical and procedural characteristics were collected according to gender...

Carotid artery atherosclerosis (CAA) represents a significant form of atherosclerosis with stroke as a major consequence. Whether it is a unique form of atherosclerosis is not established. However, this is not of major clinical relevance as no specific preventive measures over and above the established ones for cardiovascular risk are well established. Major risk factors for CAA are elevated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), diabetes mellitus, tobacco use, hypertension, and increased inflammation...
