Analysis of a contemporary cohort of patients on dialysis revealed that mortality from acute myocardial infarction (AMI) has decreased, whereas the prevalence of AMI has increased markedly, particularly among patients with non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). Using inpatient discharge diagnosis codes (1993-2008), we determined that proportions of AMI claims decreased in the primary position (from 65% to 52%) but increased in the secondary position (from 35% to 48%). Proportions of NSTEMI codes increased remarkably in both the primary and secondary positions...

BACKGROUND: Spontaneous healing of spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) recovery is frequently observed clinically. However, LVEF on presentation and follow-up imaging has not been described. HYPOTHESIS: We hypothesize that LV dysfunction improves at follow-up after initial SCAD presentation. METHODS: We included patients with nonatherosclerotic SCAD prospectively followed at Vancouver General Hospital, who had baseline assessment of LVEF and wall-motion abnormality (WMA) during their index presentation...

Interatrial block (IAB) represents delay or block of conduction between the atria. IAB has been shown to predict the development or recurrence of atrial fibrillation (AF) in various clinical scenarios. Few studies have examined the correlation between coronary artery disease and the prevalence of IAB and its impact on AF. The aim of this study was to determine if specific coronary artery lesions (location and number) are associated with the presence of IAB and development of new-onset AF. Retrospective analysis of patients presenting with non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) to our institution...

OBJECTIVE: Circulating microparticles (cMPs) are phospholipid-rich vesicles released from cells when activated or injured, and contribute to the formation of intracoronary thrombi. Tissue factor (TF, CD142) is the main trigger of fibrin formation and TF-carrying cMPs are considered one of the most procoagulant cMPs. Similar types of atherosclerotic lesions may lead to different types of AMI, although the mechanisms behind are unresolved. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the phenotype of cMPs found in plasma of ACS patients and its relation to AMI severity and thrombotic burden...

OBJECTIVE: The extent of severity and complexity of coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients presenting with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and non-STEMI (NSTEMI) and possible correlations between serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) have not yet been adequately studied. We evaluated the relationship between 25(OH)D levels and the burden of CAD as assessed by the SYNTAX score (SXscore) in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) including STEMI and NSTEMI. METHODS: After exclusion, a total of 113 patients who were admitted to our hospital due to ACS and who were referred for undergoing coronary angiography were prospectively included...

BACKGROUND: In vitro studies have shown the feasibility of coronary lesion grading with computed tomography angiography (CTA), intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) as compared to histology, whereas OCT had the highest discriminatory capacity. OBJECTIVE: We investigated the ability of CTA and IVUS to differentiate between early and advanced coronary lesions in vivo, OCT serving as standard of reference. METHODS: Multimodality imaging was prospectively performed in 30 NSTEMI patients...

It was the study objective to evaluate whether chewing a 180 mg loading dose of ticagrelor versus an equal dose of traditional oral administration, enhances inhibition of platelet aggregation 1 hour (h) after administering a ticagrelor loading dose in non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) patients. Dual anti-platelet therapy represents standard care for treating NSTEMI patients. Ticagrelor is a direct acting P2Y12 inhibitor and, unlike clopidogrel and prasugrel, does not require metabolic activation...

The pharmacokinetics after a 180-mg loading dose (LD) of ticagrelor has not been thoroughly investigated in NSTEMI patients. We aimed to compare the ticagrelor uptake and on-treatment platelet reactivity between non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) patients and a control group of patients with stable coronary artery disease (SCAD) undergoing elective percutaneous coronary intervention. We performed an observational, prospective, single-center study including 40 NSTEMI patients and 20 SCAD controls...

BACKGROUND: Impairment of renal function (IRF) is an independent risk factor of myocardial infarction (MI). AIM: The aims of study was to determine if the presence of IRF affects the choice of treatment strategy in patients with MI, and if long-term mortality rates are influenced by the use of invasive strategy in patients with MI according to the grade of IRF. METHODS: Data from the PL-ACS Registry of 22,431 patients hospitalized for MI during 2007-2008 with an available estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) with 2009 Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) formula were included...

High-sensitive cardiac troponin T (hs-TnT) is a critical biomarker in diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). However, CKD individuals usually have elevated hs-TnT even in the absence of AMI. Our study aimed to explore the optimal cutoff-value of hs-TnT and further to improve diagnostic accuracy of AMI in CKD patients. Clinical data of 489 patients were collected from the maintained database between September 2010 and June 2014. CKD patients with AMI were assigned to CKD+AMI group and CKD patients without AMI were assigned to CKD group...

BACKGROUND: Thirty-day readmission rates after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and heart failure are important patient outcome metrics. Early post-discharge physician follow-up has been promoted as a method of reducing 30-day readmission rates. However, the relationships between early post-discharge follow-up and 30-day readmission for AMI and heart failure are inconclusive. We used nationwide population-based data to examine associations between 7-day physician follow-up and 30-day readmission, and further associations of 7-day same physician (during the index hospitalization and at follow-up) and cardiologist follow-up with 30-day readmission for non-ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) or heart failure...
