BACKGROUND: The residual SYNTAX score (rSS) was designed and validated to quantify the burden of residual coronary artery disease after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The aim of this study was to assess the prognostic impact of rSS in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and multivessel disease undergoing primary-PCI. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study included 1499 consecutive patients with STEMI who underwent primary-PCI between January 2008 and December 2015...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: The neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been proposed as a prognostic marker in acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The aim of our study is to demonstrates the correlation between SYNTAX score (SXs) and NLR and its association with 1-year cardiovascular (CV) mortality in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) or non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS/MATERIALS: Over 6 consecutive years, (1st January 2010 and 1st January 2016) 6560 patients (4841 males and 1719 females, mean age 64...

Acute coronary syndromes (ACS) frequently occur in elderly subjects. The high mortality associated with ACS in this population justifies the identification of factors related to poor prognosis. We aimed to evaluate the short-term prognostic performance of the SYNTAX score in a population of patients aged 85years or more presenting ACS and undergoing coronary angiography. Secondary objectives were to identify factors related to length of stay and potential markers of in-hospital death. We performed a retrospective, single-centre prognostic study including patients aged 85years or more who underwent coronary angiography for ACS over a 4year period...

AIMS: Three-vessel and left main coronary artery disease (CAD) have important prognostic implications. Consequently, numerous risk scores have been developed to stratify patients with complex CAD. The aim of the present study is to compare the predictive performance of six risk scores for occurrence of 4-year all-cause mortality. METHODS AND RESULTS: From March 2008 to December 2012, 348 consecutive patients with complex CAD undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention in a tertiary center in São Paulo, Brazil were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Limited data are available on the clinical impact of stent overlap with the Absorb BVS bioresorbable stent. METHODS: We compared outcomes of patients receiving overlapping or non-overlapping Absorb BVS in the multicenter prospective RAI Registry. RESULTS: Out of 1,505 consecutive patients treated with Absorb BVS, 1,384 were eligible for this analysis...

To help all students meet the writing expectations of the Common Core State Standards, researchers need a deeper understanding of the characteristics of struggling writers. The purpose of this study was to explore the writing profiles of students including those who have or are at risk for writing disabilities. First-grade students ( N = 391) were assessed at the end of the school year using three writing assessments (spelling, sentence writing fluency, writing achievement). The researchers used latent profile analysis to identify students as fitting into one of five profiles (At Risk, Low Fluency, Low Writing, Average, and Above Average)...

BACKGROUND: Cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP) is mainly found in the skeletal system and vascular smooth muscle cells. Recent researches showed that it had a protective function on blood vessels and could also inhibit vascular calcification. We investigated the serum COMPs in coronary heart disease (CHD) patients, and the relationship between serum COMP and the calcification of coronary artery. METHODS: A total of 233 consecutive chest pain patients who first underwent coronary angiography followed by multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT) within six months were recruited and divided into two groups according to the coronary angiography luminal diameter narrowing percentages: CHD group (diameter narrowing ≥ 50%, n = 194) and control group (diameter narrowing < 50%, n = 39)...

Although the CHA2DS2-VASc score has been initially recommended for the assessment of the risk of thromboembolic event in patients with atrial fibrillation, in recent years, it is used to predict adverse outcomes in various cardiovascular diseases. However, little is known about its predictive value for coronary atherosclerotic burden in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). The aim of the present study is to investigate whether the CHA2DS2-VASc score could predict higher coronary atherosclerotic burden assessed by SYNTAX score (SS) in ACS...

Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) is an objective physiological index utilized in coronary angiography. It expresses the blood flow in the presence of a coronary artery stenosis as a fraction of the normal blood flow and gives information regarding the functional significance of the lesion. FFR guided percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has been shown to be superior to angiography guided PCI in several trials and registries. In addition, it appears that the use of FFR may also be preferable from an economic perspective...

BACKGROUND: There are a few literature data on the correlation between metabolic syndrome (MetS) and coronary disease among Iranian population. This study aimed to find relationship between MetS and severity of coronary artery disease (CAD) in presence of diabetes. METHODS: Total of 192 patients were consecutively enrolled in the study who were admitted to coronary care unit because of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and then underwent coronary angiography. MetS was defined by Iranian criteria...

Despite the increase in use of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in left main coronary disease, its efficacy compared with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is unclear. We performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials to assess the optimal revascularization strategy. Our search yielded 8 studies reporting relevant outcomes that were pooled using the inverse variance method, and the hazard ratio (HR) was calculated. The primary outcome was all-cause mortality, myocardial infarction (MI), or stroke (major adverse cardiac events [MACE]), and the secondary outcome was death/MI/stroke/repeat revascularization (expanded MACE)...

Aims: To assess the impact of the SYNTAX scores I and II in outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) for patients with diabetes and multivessel disease (MVD). Methods and Results: We performed a patient-level pooled analysis of three large randomized trials of patients with MVD. The impact of coronary anatomic complexity as measured by the SYNTAX score in the differences in outcomes following PCI and CABG was assessed at a median follow-up of 5 years...

Pathogenesis of coronary artery disease (CAD) is multi-factorial and several conventional risk factors have been ascribed; LDL-C being one of the important risk factor. However Indian population studies with established CAD often show LDL levels within normal range in patients with proven CAD. We hypothesized that Small dense low density lipoprotein (sdLDL) being more atherogenic might correlate more strongly to the occurrence and severity of CAD. The aim of the study was to evaluate the association between serum small dense LDL level and angiographically documented coronary artery disease...

BACKGROUND: In the SYNTAX (Synergy Between Percutaneous Coronary Intervention With Taxus and Cardiac Surgery) trial, patients with 3-vessel or left main coronary artery disease (CAD) had improved long-term outcomes with coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery compared with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stents (DES), improvements driven mainly by differences in myocardial infarction and repeat revascularization. OBJECTIVES: This study compared the long-term quality-of-life benefits of DES-PCI versus CABG for patients with 3-vessel or left main CAD...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Aortic valve sclerosis (AVS) is characterized by lipid deposition and calcific infiltration on the edge of aortic leaflets without significant restriction of motion. The SYNTAX Score (SS) is an important method for evaluating coronary artery disease (CAD). Many studies showed that there is an important relation between the SS and undesired cardiac outcomes. In our study, we investigated the correlation between the SS and AVS by including both ACS and stable CAD cases. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We enrolled 543 patients with CAD who underwent coronary angiography into this cross-sectional study between September 2013 and September 2014...
