Glucose metabolism status may play a predictive role in the severity of the complications among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). However, few studies have focused on the prognostic value of glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and Homeostatic Model Assessment 2 for Insulin Resistance (HOMA2-IR) in patients with DM, non-ST-segment elevation infarction (NSTEMI), and single concomitant chronic total occlusion (CTO) following primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Short- and long-term prognostic value of HbA1c and HOMA2-IR in patients with DM with NSTEMI and single CTO who received primary percutaneous transluminal coronary intervention (pPCI)...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) reduces mortality in most myocardial infarction (MI) patients but the effect on elderly patients with comorbidities is unclear. Our aim was to analyse the effect of PCI on in-hospital mortality of MI patients, by age, sex, ST elevation on presentation, diabetes mellitus (DM) and chronic kidney disease (CKD). METHODS: Cohort study of 79,791 MI patients admitted at European hospitals during 2000-2014. The effect of PCI on in-hospital mortality was analysed by age group (18-74, ≥75years), sex, presence of ST elevation, DM and CKD, using propensity score matching...

Increased galectin-3 plasma concentration has been linked to an unfavorable outcome in patients with heart failure or atrial fibrillation (AF). There are no published data about the prognostic utility of galectin-3 and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) for long-term clinical outcome in the Non-ST elevation acute myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) patients with preexisting AF. Thirty-two patients with the first acute NSTEMI and preexisting AF and 22 patients without preexisting AF, were prospectively followed for fifteen months...

Monitoring data on fine particulate matter (PM2.5) level in China's major cities were available since 2013. We conducted a time-stratified case-crossover study to evaluate the association between short-term exposure to PM2.5 and hospital admissions for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), as well as subsequent cardiac and AMI readmissions among AMI survivors. Hospital admissions for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and non ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) from 1 January 2014 through 31 December 2015 were identified from electronic Hospitalization Summary Reports...

BACKGROUND: The GRACE risk score was developed to predict in-hospital mortality for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) using multinational registries, but did not include Japanese data. Therefore, GRACE risk scores are not extensively used in Japan. The present study aimed to evaluate the relationship between the GRACE risk score and in-hospital mortality among Japanese patients with ACS using the Tokyo CCU (cardiovascular care unit) Network Database. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 9460 patients with ACS hospitalized at 67 Tokyo CCUs between January 2011 and December 2013 were retrospectively reviewed and GRACE risk scores were calculated...

Background -The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) recommends a 0/1h-algorithm for rapid rule-out and rule-in of Non-ST-Segment-Elevation Myocardial Infarction (NSTEMI) using high-sensitivity cardiac troponin (hs-cTn) concentrations irrespective of renal function. As patients with renal dysfunction (RD) frequently present with increased hs-cTn concentrations even in absence of NSTEMI, concern has been raised regarding the performance of the 0/1h-algorithm in RD. Methods -In a prospective multicenter diagnostic study enrolling unselected patients presenting with suspected NSTEMI to the emergency department, we assessed the diagnostic performance of the ESC 0/1h-algorithm using hs-cTnT and hs-cTnI in patients with RD, defined as an estimated glomerular filtration rate below 60mL/min/1...

Interleukin (IL)-16, a polypeptide cytokine, plays a crucial role in the inflammatory process, acting as a chemoattractant for peripheral immune cells and has been linked to various inflammatory diseases. However, its role in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is unclear.We retrospectively analyzed serum levels of IL-16 in blood of patients with (STEMI, n = 45) and without ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI, n = 42) compared with controls with excluded coronary artery disease (n = 55)...

Jane L McKee, Katherine Ferrier
AIMS: To determine whether or not cardiomegaly identified on chest radiograph (CXR) is indicative of true cardiomegaly as determined using echocardiography (echo) as the gold standard tool, and therefore whether or not cardiomegaly on CXR should be investigated further. METHODS: CXR and echocardiogram reports were reviewed for the presence of cardiomegaly in a population following non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). Data was evaluated to determine whether cardiomegaly reported on CXR did indeed represent true cardiomegaly...

BACKGROUND: Current guidelines advocate immediate vs. non-immediate percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) strategy in ST elevation vs. non ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI, NSTEMI). There is however increasing concern that "next-day PCI" in NSTEMI may adversely affect LV systolic and/or diastolic function and a more urgent aggressive approach should be taken in NSTEMI, similar to that in STEMI. In the current study we compared echocardiographic data between patients with STEMI and NSTEMI who had either primary or early PCI respectively...

BACKGROUND: Current American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology guidelines recommend the GRACE (Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events) and TIMI (Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction) scores to assess myocardial infarction (MI) prognosis. Changes in the epidemiological characteristics of MI and the availability of new biomarkers warrant an assessment of the performance of these scores in contemporary practice. We assessed the following: (1) the performance of GRACE and TIMI to predict 1-year mortality in a cohort of patients stratified by ST-segment elevation MI (STEMI) and non-STEMI (NSTEMI) and (2) the incremental discriminatory power of soluble suppression of tumorigenicity-2, a myocardial fibrosis biomarker...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Platelets express high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1), a damage-associated molecular pattern molecule (DAMP) that triggers thrombosis and inflammation when present in extracellular space. The role of platelet-derived HMGB1 in coronary artery disease (CAD) remains unexplored. METHODS: In a cohort study, we measured the expression of HMGB1 on the surface of circulating platelets in 183 patients with symptomatic CAD (stable CAD: n=80, acute coronary syndrome, ACS: n=103) at the time of percutaneous coronary intervention...
