Rustem Dautov, Luiz Fernando Ybarra, Can Manh Nguyen, Claire Gibrat, Dominique Joyal, Stéphane Rinfret
OBJECTIVES: We examined the incidence of periprocedural cardiac enzyme rise (PCER) [troponin T (TnT) or high-sensivity (hs)TnT >5× the upper limit of normal (ULN)] and periprocedural myocardial infarction (PMI), predictors of PCER and impact of PCER on the longer-term major adverse cardiac events (MACE) following hybrid chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND: PCER and PMI after CTO PCI, risk factors for PCER and its impact on longer-term MACE are not fully understood...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to examine the Tpeak-Tend (Tpe/corrected Tpe) interval, which is an indicator of transmural myocardial repolarization, measured non-invasively via electrocardiogram in patients with acute pulmonary embolism (PE), and to investigate the relationship with 30-day mortality and morbidity. METHODS: The study included 272 patients diagnosed with acute PE, comprising 154 females and 118 males, with a mean age of 63.1 ± 16.8 years...

Assessment of serum biomarkers that are useful in stratification of early mortality and cardiovascular risk is very important in the treatment of patients on chronic haemodialysis. This study examined the relationship between high sensitivity cTnI and NT-proBNP according to glomerular filtration rates and vascular access (native AV-fistula or permanent catheter) in patients on haemodialysis. Concentrations of hs-cTnI and NT-pro BNP were increased in 35% and 100% of patients. According to their residual renal function, patients were divided in three groups: oligoanuric; diuresis 0...
