BACKGROUND: Patients hospitalized with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) are often on prior single antiplatelet therapy (SAPT) or a dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT). Whether chronic SAPT or DAPT is beneficial or associated with an increased risk in AMI is still controversial. METHODS AND RESULTS: We prospectively enrolled 1718 consecutive patients with AMI (798 ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction and 920 non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction) who were divided according to their chronic APT (no APT, SAPT, or DAPT)...

Plasma biomarkers are useful tools in the diagnosis and prognosis of heart failure (HF). In the last decade, numerous studies have aimed to identify novel HF biomarkers that would provide superior and/or additional diagnostic, prognostic, or stratification utility. Although numerous biomarkers have been identified, their implementation in clinical practice has so far remained largely unsuccessful. Whereas cardiac-specific biomarkers, including natriuretic peptides (ANP and BNP) and high sensitivity troponins (hsTn), are widely used in clinical practice, other biomarkers have not yet proven their utility...

We read with interest the study by Yelin et al.1 that poverty results in higher mortality in lupus patients by increasing disease damage accumulation. We suggest some alternative mechanisms for the contribution of poverty to higher mortality. First, cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in lupus patients, and lupus itself is an independent CVD risk factor.2 Risk of CVD-specific death has declined and is projected to continue declining due to better control of risk factors such as hypertension and diabetes...

P2Y12 inhibitors, including clopidogrel have become an integral part of treatment for patients receiving coronary stent placement as a result of stable coronary artery disease or acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and also for medically managed ACS patients. Areas covered: Clopidogrel efficacy can be significantly modified by polymorphism of CYP2C19 genotype (more than 25 allelic variants) involved in its metabolism that can adversely affect its anti-platelet activity. As a result, a substantial number of patients (20-30%) with ACS show an inadequate response to clopidogrel despite a standardized dosing regimen...

To compare the burden of statin therapy according to the Third Adult Treatment Panel (ATP-III) and the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) guidelines the Survey of Risk Factors of Non-Communicable Disease (SuRFNCD)-2011of Iran was used. A survey analysis associated with sex and age categorization was run. Of total 3496 persons (1322 men) aged 40-70 years, based on the ACC/AHA guidelines, about 46.5% were eligible to receive moderate- to high-intensity statin therapy. Based on the ATP-III guidelines, 17...

Statin coverage has been examined among HIV-infected patients using Adult Treatment Panel III (ATP III) and American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) guidelines, although not with newer National Lipid Association (NLA) guidelines. We investigated statin eligibility, prescribing practices, and therapeutic responses using these three guidelines. Sociodemographic, clinical, and laboratory data were collected between 2011 and 2016 for HIV-infected outpatients enrolled in the DC Cohort, a multi-center, prospective, observational study in Washington, DC...

INTRODUCTION: Current AHA/ACC guidelines on the management of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) suggest that an ECG is indicated within 10minutes of arrival for patients arriving to the Emergency Department (ED) with symptoms concerning for STEMI. In response, there has been a creep towards performing ECGs more frequently in triage. The objectives of this study were to quantify the number of triage ECGs performed at our institution, assess the proportion of ECGs performed within current hospital guidelines, and evaluate the rate of STEMI detection in triage ECGs...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Advancements in highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has led to increased survival, approaching that of the general population. These patients are at an increased risk for heart disease, specifically HIV-associated cardiomyopathy. RECENT FINDINGS: Initially, HIV-associated cardiomyopathy was predominantly noted as systolic dysfunction, but diastolic dysfunction has become more common with increased use of HAART...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: We aim to summarize the effect of cancer therapy-related cardiotoxicity on the development of left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. RECENT FINDINGS: We discuss commonly used cancer therapeutics that have the potential for both acute and delayed cardiotoxicity. LV dysfunction from cancer therapies may be found by routine cardiac imaging prior to clinical manifestations of heart failure (HF) and we discuss the current multi-modality approaches for early detection of toxicity with the use of advanced echocardiographic parameters including strain techniques...

BACKGROUND: There is controversy over the usefulness of prediabetes as a diagnostic label. Using data from US National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES) between 1988 and 2014, we examined the cardiovascular and renal burdens in adults with prediabetes over time and compared patterns with other glycaemic status groups. METHODS: We analysed cross-sectional survey data from non-pregnant adults aged 20 years and older from the NHANES survey periods 1988-94, 1999-2004, 2005-10, and 2011-14...
