BACKGROUND: Anemia on admission is a powerful predictor of major cardiovascular events in patients presenting for acute coronary syndromes. We sought to determine the prevalence and prognostic impact of anemia in patients presenting for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). METHODS: We analyzed data from a Tunisian retrospective single center STEMI registry. Patients were enrolled between January 1998 and October 2014. Anemic and nonanemic patients were compared for clinical and prognostic features and according to four prespecified hemoglobin level subgroups...

With the ageing of the general population, clinicians are facing with increased frequency the challenge of administering parenteral anti-coagulation therapy in the elderly, the main indications being venous thromboembolism (VTE), acute coronary syndromes (ACS), atrial fibrillation and bridging therapy. Assessing the risk/benefit ratio is always difficult in this category of patients, because of the higher risk for hemorrhagic events, although in most cases the benefit outweighs the risk, especially in the setting of VTE...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have shown that air pollution particulate matter (PM) is associated with an increased risk for myocardial infarction. The effects of air pollution on the risk of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), in particular the role of gaseous air pollutants such as NO2 and O3 and the susceptibility of specific populations, are still under debate. METHODS: All patients entered in the Belgian prospective STEMI registry between 2009 and 2013 were included...

BACKGROUND: The objectives of this study were to evaluate the incidence of no-reflow as independent predictor of adverse events and to assess whether baseline pre-procedural treatment options may affect clinical outcomes. METHODS: Data were derived from the ISACS-TC registry (NCT01218776) from October 2010 to January 2015. No-reflow was defined as post-PCI TIMI flow grades 0-1, in the absence of post-procedural significant (≥25%) residual stenosis, abrupt vessel closure, dissection, perforation, thrombus of the original target lesion, or epicardial spasm...
