BACKGROUND: Remarkable improvement in the treatment of Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) has led to changes in revascularization strategies from traditional open surgery to less invasive endovascular management. However, few studies are available on gender disparities in patients with PAD treated via an endovascular approach. This study was designed to analyze gender related differences with respect to in-hospital outcomes in PAD patients. METHODS: Our data was obtained from National Inpatient Sample (NIS) 2012 through 2014...

Statins constitute the most powerful class of drugs for cardiovascular risk reduction associated to atherosclerosis. Their important pharmacological properties include reduction of serum lipid concentrations and non-lipid related, pleotropic effects such as anti-inflammatory action. Previous largescale randomized studies have demonstrated the beneficial effects of statin loading prior to elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for the reduction of periprocedural myocardial infarction and prevention of major adverse cardiac events at 30 days...

BACKGROUND: There are non-randomized data about the benefits of Impella use in the setting of cardiogenic shock. However, limited data exist to help guide clinicians about whether in the context of the intervention the device should be implanted early or late; how long the device should stay in; and how the mode of explant should be. METHODS: This is a retrospective, single center registry over 5 years comparing in-hospital outcomes and 1 year mortality in an all-comers in patients who had the Impella device placed early versus those who had the device placed late as a bailout...

INTRODUCTION: Percutaneous mitral valve repair (PMVR) using MitraClip system has emerged as a therapeutic option for patients with functional severe mitral regurgitation (FMR) at prohibitive risk for surgery. In this setting, the echocardiographic assessment of FMR severity is challenging because the traditional echocardiographic methods have important limitations. The aim of this study was to assess the accuracy and reliability of a simple Doppler index, the mitral/aortic flow velocity integral ratio (MAVIR), to evaluate residual FMR severity after PMVR...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, most drug-eluting stents (DESs) were domestically produced in China, but how domestic DESs perform compared to imported DESs was still unknown. METHODS: A total of 9011 consecutive cases with DESs implantation in a single center throughout 2013 were prospectively collected. Two-year clinical outcomes were evaluated between patients implanted with imported and domestic DESs. RESULTS: During 2-year follow-up, the rates of all-cause death, cardiac death, myocardial infarction, stroke, and stent thrombosis were not significantly different between two groups...
