Importance: Renal transplantation is associated with reduction in the risk for myocardial infarction (MI) in patients with chronic kidney disease requiring long-term dialysis (stage 5D CKD). Whether outcomes of MI differ among renal transplant recipients vs patients with stage 5D CKD or those without CKD has not been well examined. Objectives: To compare in-hospital reperfusion rates and outcomes of ST-segment elevation MI (STEMI) in renal transplant recipients vs the stage 5D CKD group or the non-CKD group...

Acute coronary thrombosis after emergent surgery for acute Type A aortic dissection is a rare event that can remain undiagnosed in absence of typical electrocardiogram readings. We report a case of left anterior descending artery thrombosis without ST-segment elevation three days after surgical repair, which was successfully treated with angioplasty and stenting.

We report on a 69-year-old woman who demonstrated native coronary artery and grafted vessel spasm following on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Despite intraaortic balloon pump (IABP) insertion, electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormalities did not disappear. Emergency coronary angiography (CAG) was performed. The patient was successfully treated with systemic and intracoronary injection of vasodilator agents. ECG changes disappeared, with normalized and stable hemodynamic function. Intraaortic balloon pump was maintained for 48 h...

Objectives Platynosomum species are cat-specific parasitic trematodes that parasitize the biliary ducts and gall bladder. Due to the common connection to the major duodenal papilla of the pancreas and common bile ducts in addition to the periductal proximity of the pancreas, it is possible that platynosomosis could cause pancreatitis. The objective of this study was to determine whether platynosomosis, a commonly diagnosed parasitic disease in cats on St Kitts, has any association with pancreatic disease. Methods To investigate this possibility, the pancreas of free-roaming cats with naturally acquired platynosomosis were evaluated via ultrasound, serum concentrations of feline pancreatic lipase (fPL), cobalamin, folate and feline trypsin-like immunoreactivity (fTLI) and histopathology...

BACKGROUND: Acute myocardial infarction (MI) causes significant changes in cardiac morphology and function. Galectin-3 is a novel and potentially therapeutically important mediator of cardiac remodelling. Myocardial and serum galectin-3 expression dynamics in response to the early cardiovascular outcomes after acute MI are not fully elucidated. METHODS: We first performed a comprehensive longitudinal microarray analyses in mice after acute MI. We then measured the serum levels of galectin-3 in a translational porcine model of coronary microembolism-induced post-ischaemic cardiac remodelling...

BACKGROUND: The prognostic role of hypertension on long-term survival after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is limited and inconsistent. We hypothesize that hypertension increases long-term mortality after PCI. METHODS: We analyzed data from SCAAR (Swedish Coronary Angiography and Angioplasty Registry) for all consecutive patients admitted coronary care units in Sweden between January 1995 and May 2013 and who underwent PCI due to ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI)/unstable angina (UA) or stable angina pectoris...

We present a new approach of integrated maximum current density (IMCD) for the noninvasive detection of myocardial infarction (MI) using magnetocardiography (MCG) data acquired from a superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) system. In this study, we investigated the relationship of the maximum current density (MCD) in the current density map and the underlying equivalent current dipole (ECD) based on a novel method of reconstructing the ECD in the extremum circle of the magnetic field map. The performance of IMCD and the integrated ECD (IECD) approaches were also evaluated by using 61-channel MCG data from 39 healthy subjects and 102 patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI)...

BACKGROUND: Osteomyelitis is a serious disease which can be difficult to treat despite properly instituted antibiotic therapy. This appears to be related at least partly to degraded vascularisation in the osteomyelitic (OM) lesions. Studies of perfusion in OM bones are, however, few and not quantitative. Quantitative assessment of perfusion could aid in the selection of therapy. A non-invasive, quantitative way to study perfusion is dynamic [(15)O]water positron emission tomography (PET)...

Remission induction therapy for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) includes medications that may cause hepatotoxicity, including asparaginase. We used a genome-wide association study (GWAS) to identify loci associated with elevated alanine transaminase (ALT) levels after induction therapy in children with ALL enrolled on St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (SJCRH) protocols. Germline DNA was genotyped using arrays and exome sequencing. Adjusting for age, body mass index, ancestry, asparaginase preparation and dosage, the PNPLA3 rs738409 (C>G) I148M variant, previously associated with fatty liver disease risk, had the strongest genetic association with ALT (P = 2...

BACKGROUND: Quantitative MR, including T1ρ mapping, has been extensively used to probe early biochemical changes in knee articular cartilage of subjects with osteoarthritis (OA) and others at risk for cartilage degeneration, such as those with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury and reconstruction. However, limited studies have been performed aimed to assess the spatial location and patterns of T1ρ. In this study we used a novel voxel-based relaxometry (VBR) technique coupled with principal component analysis (PCA) to extract relevant features so as to describe regional patterns and to investigate their similarities and differences in T1ρ maps in subjects with OA and subjects six months after ACL reconstruction (ACLR)...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to identify possible predictors for same day discharge (SDD) after percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). BACKGROUND: Same day discharge after PCI is becoming more and more appealing and patient's selection criteria are being formulated. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed in all PCI procedures from January 2013 until December 2015. Patients were discharged the same day (SDD group) or had at least one overnight stay (non-SDD group)...

REVIEW
Martin Mayer
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)...

Effects of daily fluctuation of ambient temperature and concentrations of air pollutants on acute cardiovascular events have not been well studied. From January 2011 to December 2012, a total of 56,863 consecutive ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention were registered from 929 institutes with median interinstitutional distance of 2.6 km. We constructed generalized linear mixed models in which the presence or absence of patients with STEMI per day per institute was included as a binomial response variable, with daily meteorologic and environmental data obtained from their respective observatories nearest to the institutes (median distance of 9...

BACKGROUND: Higher N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) levels have been linked to a more favorable glucometabolic profile. Little is known about the interaction of NT-proBNP and fasting glucose in non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE ACS). METHODS: Fasting glucose and NT-proBNP were measured in 2240 patients enrolled in the EARLY ACS trial. Multivariable Cox models were used to assess associations between fasting glucose and NT-proBNP and a 96-hour composite of death, myocardial infarction (MI), recurrent ischemia, or thrombotic bailout; 30-day death or MI; and 1-year mortality...

Objective: To investigate the effect of atorvastatin on reflow in patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and its relation to serum uric acid levels. Methods: One hundred and fourteen STEMI patients undergoing primary PCI were enrolled and randomly divided into two groups:55 cases received oral atorvastatin 20 mg before PCI (routine dose group) and 59 cases received oral atorvastatin 80 mg before PCI (high dose group). According to the initial serum uric acid level, patients in two groups were further divided into normal uric acid subgroup and hyperuricemia subgroup...

BACKGROUND: Rule-out of non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction is based on consecutive measurements of cardiac troponins using the 99th percentile of the respective assay as cutoff. The new ESC guidelines alternatively offer rapid 1h algorithms with lower cutoffs than the 99th percentile for rule-out of non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction. We aimed to compare a recently introduced 1h algorithm based on a high-sensitivity cardiac troponin I (hs-TnI) cutoff of 6ng/L at 0h and 1h to the current standard of care using the 99th percentile (27ng/L) as cutoff with reference to follow-up events in a large chest pain cohort...

Recent studies have proposed intravenous (IV) morphine is associated with delayed action of antiplatelet agents in acute myocardial infarction. However, it is unknown whether morphine results in increased myocardial damage in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). We investigated myocardial salvage index (MSI) to determine whether IV morphine affects myocardial injury adversely in STEMI patients undergoing primary PCI. 299 STEMI patients underwent contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging a median of 3 days after PCI...

BACKGROUND: Epidemics of chronic kidney disease (CKD) not due to diabetes mellitus (DM) or hypertension have been observed among individuals working in hot environments in several areas of the world. Experimental models have documented that recurrent heat stress and water restriction can lead to CKD, and the mechanism may be mediated by hyperosmolarity that activates pathways (vasopressin, aldose reductase-fructokinase) that induce renal injury. Here we tested the hypothesis that elevated serum sodium, which reflects serum osmolality, may be an independent risk factor for the development of CKD...
