Current guidelines recommend against revascularization of the noninfarct artery during the index percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in hemodynamically stable patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). This was based largely on observational studies with few data coming from randomized controlled trials (RCTs). Recently, several small-to-moderate sized RCTs have provided data, suggesting that a multivessel revascularization approach may be appropriate. We performed a meta-analysis of RCTs comparing multivessel percutaneous coronary intervention (MV PCI) versus culprit vessel-only revascularization (COR) during primary PCI in patients with STEMI and multivessel coronary disease (MVCD)...

Lamotrigine overdose usually follows a benign pattern, and the majority of cases reported involve a co-ingestant. Prior reports have suggested the possible use of intravenous lipid emulsion in cases of severe sodium channel blockade. We describe the electrocardiographic changes in a massive lamotrigine overdose treated with intravenous lipid emulsion. A 36-year-old male with bipolar disorder ingested 13.5 g of lamotrigine in a suicidal attempt. The lamotrigine level was 78.0 μg/mL. Comprehensive drug screen was negative for all screened compounds...

BACKGROUND: Recent reports suggest altered antithrombotic efficacy and higher risk of bleeding with new oral anticoagulants (NOACs) in patients with renal insufficiency. A meta-analysis was performed to evaluate the efficacy and safety with recommended doses of NOAC compared with conventional treatment in patients with renal insufficiency. METHODS: PubMed, Cochrane Library, EMBASE, EBSCO, Web of Science, and CINAHL databases were searched from January 1, 2001 through March 23, 2014...

The workup of moderate-to-large pericardial effusion should focus on its hemodynamic impact and potential cause. A structured approach to diagnostic evaluation of pericardial effusion is needed. We retrospectively studied a contemporary cohort of 103 patients with moderate-to-large pericardial effusion hospitalized at St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital Center from July 2009 till August 2013. Diagnosis of pericardial effusion was independently ascertained by chart review. We applied a stepwise parsimonious approach to establish the cause of pericardial effusion...

Current guidelines recommend 12 months of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation in the absence of increased bleeding risk. Studies have suggested that early discontinuation of DAPT can result in an increased risk of stent thrombosis. However, given the potential for major bleeding, the optimal duration of DAPT after DES implantation remains uncertain. We searched PubMed, EMBASE, Scopus, and databases from inception until October 2013 for randomized controlled trials that compared shorter versus longer DAPT duration after DES implantation...

Effectiveness of new oral anticoagulants (NOAC) in patients with cancer is not clearly defined. There remain concerns of doubtful benefit and chances of potential harm with newer agents. In this meta-analysis, we evaluated the efficacy and safety of NOAC in patients with cancer. PubMed, Cochrane Library, EMBASE, Web of Science, and CINAHL databases were searched from January 01, 2001 through February 28, 2013. Randomized controlled trials reporting efficacy and safety data of NOACs (rivaroxaban, dabigatran, and apixaban) with control (low-molecular-weight heparin/vitamin K antagonists/placebo) for patients with cancer were included...

BACKGROUND: Ventricular-arterial stiffening is a part of the aging process that is amplified by various comorbidities. It affects normal cardiovascular reserve and limits exercise capacity. The aim of this study was to explore the association of physiologic determinants of ventricular-arterial interaction with exercise capacity in patients referred for exercise echocardiography with exertional dyspnea. METHODS: A total of 93 patients with exertional dyspnea without chest pain were evaluated using the Bruce protocol...

OBJECTIVE: We performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials of statin loading prior to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND: Statin loading prior to PCI has been shown to decrease peri-procedural myocardial infarction (pMI) but less is known regarding the clinical benefit of pre-procedural statin loading. METHODS: We searched for trials of statin naïve patients presenting with stable angina or NSTE-ACS and treated with statins prior to PCI...

The number of cases of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is estimated to be 300,000/year in the United States. Two landmark studies published in 2002 demonstrated that therapeutic hypothermia decreased mortality and improved neurological outcome after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Our institutional pathway for the management of survivors of cardiac arrest stresses teamwork involving multiple disciplines, including cardiology, critical care, nursing, neurology, infectious diseases, physical therapy, social work, and pastoral care...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies have shown that hypertension is inversely correlated with bone mineral density (BMD) as determined by dual energy x-ray absorptiometery (DXA) in different ethnic groups. But in most published studies, either the sample size was small or the study was limited by different measurement methods. These limitations leave this association controversial and inconclusive. The current study utilizes a sample of African American females referred for clinical screening of osteoporosis in our center to find out if any association of high blood pressure and BMD in this ethnic group exists...

Subacute (medical) tamponade develops over a period of days or even weeks. Previous studies have shown that subacute tamponade is uncommonly associated with hypotension. On the contrary, many of those patients are indeed hypertensive at initial presentation. We sought to determine the prevalence and predictors of hypertensive cardiac tamponade and hemodynamic response to pericardial effusion drainage. We conducted a retrospective study of patients who underwent pericardial effusion drainage for subacute pericardial tamponade...

BACKGROUND: Subacute pericardial tamponade can present without signs of cardiogenic shock. Symptoms and signs lack both sensitivity and specificity. METHODS: We conducted a case-control study in consecutive hospitalized patients with moderate-to-large pericardial effusion who had no evidence of hemodynamic compromise upon admission. Patients with pericardial effusion drained for diagnostic and/or therapeutic purposes served as cases, and patients who were not drained served as controls...

In this case, uncharacteristic clinical and laboratory findings led to an unanticipated diagnosis for a 24-year-old woman admitted for new-onset heart failure with features suggesting cardiac tamponade. Concomitant diagnosis of progressive mixed connective tissue disease associated with severe hypothyroidism was made. Despite early recognition (based on clinical and pathologic features) and rapid management (with glucocorticoids, thyroxine, metoprolol, lisinopril, furosemide, and milrinone), she deteriorated and died within 4 weeks...

BACKGROUND: The components of the nutritional supplement Cognitex have been individually shown to have beneficial effects on cognitive function. We evaluated the efficacy of the nutritional supplement in improving cognitive function in elderly with memory complaints. METHODS: Thirty participants received three capsules of the nutritional supplement per day for 12 weeks in an open label study. Efficacy and safety measures, assessed at baseline, 2 weeks, and 12 weeks of treatment, included cognitive evaluation using a computerized cognitive assessment tool, vital signs measurements, and physical examination...

The presence of false negative nuclear stress test in the settings of positive electrocardiographic changes is a very unusual phenomenon and is usually secondary to balanced ischemia of the myocardial segments evaluated by SPECT-TL. We present a case of an 81-year old post-menopausal female who presented to her primary care physician for evaluation of a 6-week dyspnea on exertion and was referred to our institution for exercise stress test with Thallium SPECT with the objective of ruling out coronary artery disease and identifying possible areas of myocardial ischemia...

Cardiovascular diseases account for 40% of all deaths in the West. Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is a major health problem affecting over 300,000 patients annually in the United States alone. Presence of coronary artery disease (CAD), usually in the setting of diminished left ventricular ejection fraction, is still the single major risk factor for SCD. Additionally, acute myocardial ischemia, structural cardiac defects, anomalous coronary arteries, cardiomyopathies, genetic mutations, and ventricular arrhythmias are all attributed to SCD, demonstrating the perplexity of this condition...

We describe our experience with the Advanced Cardiac Admission Program (ACAP) at our institution. The ACAP program is a hospital-wide implementation of critical pathways-based management of all cardiac patients. Data review of patients admitted for acute coronary syndromes from the ACAP-PAIN database and a comparative study of outcomes before and after implementation of the pathways-based assessment and treatment protocols. In the pre-ACAP and post-ACAP patient groups, antiplatelet use at admission improved from 50% to 75% (p<...
