BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) have been recently adopted in many fields of cardiovascular medicine and in interventional cardiology. Using CFD analysis we compared the use of different PCI procedures, with and without the utilization of a proximal optimization technique (POT), on a complex coronary artery bifurcation. METHODS/MATERIALS: For the analysis, we considered a hypothetic model of a left anterior descending artery-diagonal Medina 1,1,1 bifurcation type with a diameter of the proximal main branch (MB) and the side branch (SB) set at 3...

Multiple variations exist in performing a primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) among various cardiologists. These variations range from the choice of peripheral access artery (radial vs femoral), performance or time of complete angiography including left ventriculography, and nonculprit vessel angiography before or after intervening on the culprit vessel. The reasons for such variations include emphasis on door-to-balloon time, knowledge of cardiac anatomy before proceeding with pPCI, physician expertise, and the level of comfort with radial approach...

OBJECTIVES: Clinician utilization of the 2013 cholesterol lowering guidelines remains variable and unknown. We sought to examine statin prescribing patterns and compare rates among specialists who treat high-risk cardiovascular patients admitted to the hospital. METHODS: We retrospectively (via chart review) examined four specialty groups: (i) Cardiology, (ii) Cardiovascular or Vascular (CV) Surgery, (iii) Neurology, and (iv) Internal Medicine. Adult patients were included based on a discharge diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome, coronary artery bypass graft surgery, carotid endarterectomy, acute ischemic stroke, transient ischemic attack, or high-risk chest pain...

Noncommunicable diseases have been established as a clear threat, not only to human health but also to the development and economic growth. Claiming 63% of all deaths, these diseases are currently the main murderer worldwide. The increase in the prevalence and importance of noncommunicable diseases specifically of cardiovascular risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia and obesity is the result of a complex interplay between health, economic growth and development, which is strongly associated with universal trends such as the aging of the world population, rapid unplanned urbanization, and the globalization of unhealthy lifestyles...

BACKGROUND: The most recent joint guidelines from the American Heart Association (AHA) and American College of Cardiology (ACC) on the management of non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTE-ACS) are a result of a substantial and considered undertaking, and those involved deserve much recognition for their efforts. However, the handling of anticoagulants seems somewhat inadequate, and this is a highly-relevant matter when managing NSTE-ACS. OBJECTIVE OF THE REVIEW: Among areas of potential uncertainty, emergency medicine professionals might still be left wondering about the particulars of anticoagulant therapy when pursuing ischemia-guided management of NSTE-ACS (that is, managing NSTE-ACS without an intent for early invasive measures, such as coronary angiography and revascularization)...

BACKGROUND: In-stent restenosis (ISR) is still a major concern in interventional cardiology. Drug coated balloon (DCB) angioplasty has been shown to be a promising option in treatment of ISR. However heterogeneity of different DCBs in suppression of neointimal growth has been described in a porcine model of coronary ISR. Therefore, in this registry analysis, we compared two frequently used paclitaxel eluting DCBs, the SeQuent Please and the Pantera Lux DCB. METHODS: 571 patients were treated with DCB angioplasty at the Heinrich-Heine University Düsseldorf between 2009 and 2012...

Bifurcation lesions represent one of the most challenging lesions subset in interventional cardiology. The European Bifurcation Club (EBC) is an academic consortium whose goal has been to assess and recommend the appropriate strategies to manage bifurcation lesions. The quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) methods for the evaluation of bifurcation lesions has been subject to extensive research. Single vessel quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) has shown to be inaccurate to assess bifurcation lesions dimensions...

Ischemia modified albumin is a novel marker of ischemia generated due to hypooxygenation and increased hydroxyl free radicals in low pH. The molecule has been licenced for clinical use as an early marker for acute coronary syndrome in cardiology. Since presence of ischemia might have serious and sometimes devastating effects in perinatology, various researches have evaluated its value in different clinical conditions. This narrative review aims to summarize the literature concerning the value of IMA in perinatology and guide for further research...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of total chronic coronary occlusion (CTO) still remains a major challenge in interventional cardiology. To predict the probability of a successful intervention different scoring systems are available. We analyzed in this study the validity of two scoring systems, the Japanese CTO score (J-CTO score) and the newly developed Clinical and Lesion-related score (CL Score). METHODS: Between 2012 and 2015 we included 379 consecutive patients...

BACKGROUND: Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is a common cause of hospital discharges and readmissions. Readmissions may indicate poor patient care and avoidable health expenditure, being key in quality improvement strategies. Our aim was to analyse cardiac diseases (CDs) readmissions in patients with AMI in Spain. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of 33,538 hospital discharges with AMI being the "principal diagnosis" at hospitals of the Spanish National Health System in 2012 was performed using administrative data...

BACKGROUND: -High-sensitivity cardiac troponin assays enable myocardial infarction to be ruled out earlier, but the optimal approach is uncertain. We compared the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) rule-out pathway, with a pathway that incorporates lower cardiac troponin concentrations to risk stratify patients. METHODS: -Patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome (n=1,218) underwent high-sensitivity cardiac troponin I measurement at presentation, 3 and 6 or 12 hours...

Interventional cardiology has contributed significantly to our understanding of coronary atherosclerosis. Interventional cardiology has allowed a correlation between the clinical picture of coronary atherosclerosis with the underlying pathology and has helped establish the evolution of atherosclerotic plaques in vivo. Better understanding of the basic mechanisms of coronary atherosclerosis, due to the contributions of interventional cardiology, will help cure and/or prevent coronary atherosclerosis in the next few decades...

The Human Cardiac Troponin I (hcTnI) is a 210 amino acid protein, 23 kDa in molecular weight. This biomarker is commonly used to diagnose myocardial infarction, micro injury, and acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in patients referring to emergency departments. The American Heart Association (AHA) and European Society of Cardiology (ESC) proposed troponin I as the gold biomarker for early detection of heart attack, especially in myocardial infarction (MI). Therefore, developing monoclonal antibodies against this biomarker could help in for early detection of heart attack...
