Objectives: Healthcare expenditure per-capita in the USA is higher than in England. We hypothesised that clinical outcomes after cardiac revascularisation are better in the USA. We compared costs and outcomes of patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in England and New York State (NYS). Methods: Costs and total mortality were assessed using the Hospital Episode Statistics for England and the Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System for NYS...

The aim of the present study was to compare fresh and vitrified goat ovarian tissue after autotransplantation and in vitro culture. Adult goats were completely ovariectomised and each ovarian pair was sliced and distributed among six different treatment groups: fresh control, fresh transplant, fresh culture, vitrified control, vitrified transplant and vitrified culture. Follicular morphology, development, growth, density, revascularisation and hormone production were evaluated in all groups. Three antral follicles (two in the fresh transplant and one in the vitrified transplant groups) were observed on the surface of the graft 90 days after transplantation...

OBJECTIVE: Between the years 1993 and 2008, mortality rates from coronary heart disease (CHD) in the Slovak Republic have decreased by almost one quarter. However, this was a smaller decline than in neighbouring countries. The aim of this modelling study was therefore to quantify the contributions of risk factor changes and the use of evidence-based medical therapies to the CHD mortality decline between 1993 and 2008. METHODS: We identified, obtained and scrutinised the data required for the model...

Background -The availability and diversity of lower limb revascularisation procedures have increased in England in the past decade. We investigated whether these developments in care have translated to improvements in patient pathways and outcomes. Methods -Individual-patient records from Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) were used to identify 103 934 patients who underwent endovascular (angioplasty) or surgical (endarterectomy, profundaplasty or bypass) lower limb revascularisation for infrainguinal peripheral artery disease (PAD) in England between January 2006 and December 2015...

AIMS: It is unclear whether detection of prediabetes(Pre-DM) by routine assessment of glycated haemoglobin A1c(HbA1c) and fasting plasma glucose(FPG) among patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention(PCI) with contemporary drug-eluting stents(DES) may help identify subjects with increased event risk. We assessed the relation between glycaemia status and 1-year outcome after PCI. METHODS AND RESULTS: Glycaemia status was determined in 2,362 non-diabetic BIO-RESORT participants, treated at all four study sites, to identify Pre-DM (HbA1c 42-47mmol/mol; FPG 6...

OBJECTIVES: Endovascular repair of aortic arch pathologies remains challenging. Recently, needle based in situ fenestration (ISF) has shown great potential in endovascular total aortic arch repair (ETAAR). This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility, effectiveness, and safety of ETAAR via needle based ISF, and to present initial experience with this technique. DESIGN AND METHODS: Patients who met the inclusion criteria were enrolled in this prospective study. The supra-arch branches were manually punctured in a retrograde manner using liver biopsy needles (18 gauge/30 cm) in the left common carotid artery (LCCA) and brachiocephalic trunk (BCT), and endo-puncture system or aspiration biopsy needles (21-gauge) in the left subclavian artery (LSA)...

BACKGROUND: Large increases in myocardial trace elements may adversely affect metabolism and become detrimental to cardiac function. Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) allows for the revascularisation of obstructive coronary artery disease using drug-eluting stents. These stents are comprised of a metallic stent backbone covered in an engineered polymer which delivers a drug over a prescribed period to the vessel wall. Given the potential implications of trace metal accumulation within the myocardium, our goal is to determine if metallic coronary stents are able to cause detectable elevations in serum cobalt and/or chromium levels...

BACKGROUND: Diabetic foot ulcers are serious and challenging wounds associated with high risk of infection and lower-limb amputation. Ulcers are deemed neuroischaemic if peripheral neuropathy and peripheral artery disease are both present. No satisfactory treatment for neuroischaemic ulcers currently exists, and no evidence supports one particular dressing. We aimed to assess the effect of a sucrose octasulfate dressing versus a control dressing on wound closure in patients with neuroischaemic diabetic foot ulcers...

The use of statins in the treatment of hyperlipidaemia leads to a significant decrease in cardiovascular (CV) endpoints, and therapy effects are proportional to the reduction of cholesterol levels. In Poland, information about the effects of statin therapy is scarcely available. The information gathered in the Hyperlipidaemia Therapy in the tERtiary Cardiological cEnTer (TERCET) Registry on high-risk and very high-risk patients might improve our knowledge on this issue and help to introduce suitable activities...
