A substantial proportion of patients who undergo cardiac device implantation receive oral anticoagulation to prevent thromboembolism or antiplatelets to prevent thrombotic events. Anticoagulation and antiplatelets increase the risk of hemorrhagic complications, while discontinuation may increase thromboembolic risk and thrombotic events. With the introduction of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulant agents and the newer antiplatelet agents such as prasugrel or ticagrelor, the perioperative management of patients has become more challenging...

AIM: The study objectives were to investigate the association between selected CYP2C9 and VKORC1 single nucleotide polymorphisms with serious bleeding or thrombotic risk, and to estimate mean daily maintenance dose of warfarin and international normalized ratio measurements among Blacks receiving warfarin anticoagulation. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study among 230 Black adults receiving warfarin for a minimum of three consecutive months with a confirmed date of first dosage...

Rizwan Rehman, Mood Che Marhisham, Mazeni Alwi
Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) stenting has gained acceptance for palliation in cyanotic congenital heart disease. The PDA in tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia (ToF-PA) arises, in the left aortic arch, from underneath the arch and connects to the proximal left pulmonary artery, often resulting in stenosis. The PDA is usually elongated and tortuous, making stent implantation challenging. Shorter duration of palliation, aggravation of branch pulmonary artery stenosis resulting in poor growth and difficulty at surgery makes ductal stenting controversial...

The field of minimally invasive cardiac surgery has undergone rapid transformation over recent years. In this review, we provide a summary of the most current evidence supporting the use of minimally invasive aortic and mitral valve replacement techniques, as well as transcatheter approaches for aortic and mitral valve disease. As an adjunct, the use of robotically assisted coronary bypass surgery and hybrid coronary revascularization procedures is discussed. In order to obtain optimal patient outcomes, a collaborative, heart-team approach between cardiac surgeons and interventional cardiologists is necessary...

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) was first used in clinical practice in 2002. Since 2002, there has been a rapid increase in TAVI activity in patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis. This has been supported by systematic randomized data comparing TAVI against the gold standard treatment for the last 50 years' surgical aortic valve replacement. TAVI is now currently a recommended therapeutic intervention in the treatment of severe aortic stenosis patients who are deemed either high risk or inoperable...

Anna Jacobs, Rajesh Kabra, Pranab Das, Carrie S Oliphant
Following publication of our review article 4 years ago, there has been an uptake in the use of nonvitamin K oral antagonists, also known as direct oral anticoagulants. The most recent Xa inhibitors to receive approval are edoxaban, which has been approved for use in both atrial fibrillation and venous thromboembolism prevention and betrixaban, which has been approved in the USA for extended thromboprophylaxis in the medically ill population. Additional analyses of certain types of atrial fibrillation patients have now become available...

AIM: To assess the utility of gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) and C-reactive protein (CRP) in predicting troponin elevation in patients with acute coronary syndrome. PATIENTS: The total of 119 patients were divided into troponin-positive (n = 61) and troponin-negative (n = 58) patients. RESULTS: CRP cut-off value ≥13.4 mg/l had the sensitivity of 68.1% and specificity of 62.5%, while the GGT cut-off value ≥61.5 IU/l had the sensitivity of 66...

Intermittent fasting has produced a variety of beneficial health effects in animal models, although high-quality research in humans has been limited. This special report examines current evidences for intermittent fasting in humans, discusses issues that require further examination, and recommends new research that can improve the knowledge base in this emerging research area. While potentially useful for health improvement, intermittent fasting requires further study prior to widespread implementation for health purposes...

AIM: The aim of this study was to examine cancer and bleeding in atrial fibrillation patients administered with dabigatran. MATERIALS & METHODS: This study enrolled 509 consecutive nonvalvular atrial fibrillation patients who received dabigatran. The mean administration period was 14.8 ± 15.7 months. We investigated the prevalence and new development of cancers. Further, the relation between cancer and adverse events was evaluated. RESULTS: In the 509 patients, major bleeding occurred in 2...

AIM: A systematic review and meta-analysis, evaluating ischemic conditioning during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS & RESULTS: A database search of randomized trials of ischemic conditioning in PCI created three subgroups for meta-analysis: mortality in elective PCI with remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPreC; subgroup 1a, n = 3) - no outcome difference between RIPreC and control (odds ratio: 0.34; 95% CI: 0.08-1.56), myocardial salvage index in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) with RIPreC (subgroup 1b, n = 2) - favored RIPreC (mean difference: 0...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an increasingly recognized cause of acute coronary syndrome in young patients. No clear factors exist to predict the natural history of the disease and the prognosis of the condition. Furthermore, current management practice of SCAD is based mainly on retrospective data and case series and clear management guidelines are lacking. In this article, we present a series of cases of patients with SCAD and we will discuss the different clinical presentations, the diagnostic approaches and the options of management of this cohort of patients...

Ethical behavior has always been deeply ingrained in surgical culture, but ethical deliberation has only recently become an important component of cardiac surgical practice. In our earlier review, we covered a range of issues including several related to informed consent, conflict of interest, professional self-regulation and innovation, among many others. This update covers several topics of interest to cardiac surgeons and cardiologists, focusing on controversial issues specific to the practice of cardiothoracic surgery: informed consent, relations with hospitals and euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide...
