BACKGROUND: Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) might lead to left ventricular remodeling. Adequate myocardial perfusion is critical to prevent this adverse remodeling. Quantitative myocardial blush evaluator (QuBE) software, available on-line, is a simple analysis tool which enables the precise quantification of myocardial perfusion in the infarct area immediately after interventional treatment. The aim of this study was to assess whether the results of QuBE analysis might predict the development of HF in AMI patients in 3 year-long follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Although angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) have been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects on infarcted myocardium in experimental models, little is known in humans. Stromal cell-derived factor-1α (SDF-1α), a pro-inflammatory chemokine, is released from infarcted tissue in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). This study examined whether ARBs suppress SDF-1α production in the infarcted lesion in patients with AMI. METHODS: SDF-1α levels were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays in plasma obtained from the aortic root (AO) and the anterior interventricular vein (AIV) in 50 patients with an anterior AMI...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are commonly used medications. Recent studies reported an increased risk of acute myocardial infarction (MI) in PPI users vs non-users. We evaluated MI risk associated with PPIs compared with histamine-2 receptor antagonists (H2RAs) in privately insured adults in the United States. METHODS: Using administrative claims from commercial and Medicare Supplemental plans (2001-2014), we compared risk of MI in patients who started a new prescription for PPIs vs H2RAs...

In the era of primary percutaneous coronary intervention, mechanical complications after acute myocardial infarction are extremely rare, with an incidence of less than 0.5%. Rupture of the ventricular septum is the least frequent occurrence. Nevertheless, current mortality remains high and a prompt diagnosis and treatment are imperative to increase survival. Despite early surgical repair, mortality still remains high.

INTRODUCTION: Since health insurance is compulsory in the Netherlands, the centrally registered medical claims data might pose a unique opportunity to evaluate quality of (cardiac) care on a national level without additional collection of data. However, validation of these claims data has not yet been assessed. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. METHODS: National claims data ('national registry') were compared with data collected by patient records reviews in four representative hospitals ('validation registry')...

Introduction: Although percutaneous coronary intervention is an accepted "first-line" therapy in acute ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in general population, few data are available on the short- and long-term outcomes of very old patients (age >90 years). Our aim is to evaluate and compare the short and long-term outcomes after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) or medical therapy in nonagenarian patients with STEMI. Methods: We retrospectively identified patients older than 90 years old in our clinic, with acute STEMI who presented within 12 hours after symptoms onset, either underwent PPCI or medically treated...

Background: Understanding the patterns of healthcare utilization and costs during the initial phase of care (12 months after breast cancer [BC] diagnosis) in older women (aged ≥65 years) is crucial in the allocation of Medicare resources. The objective of this study was to determine healthcare utilization and costs during the initial phase of care in older, female, Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries diagnosed with BC, and to determine the factors associated with higher costs. Methods: A retrospective observational study using the SEER-Medicare linked database was conducted in 69,307 women aged ≥66 years diagnosed with primary incident BC in 2003-2009 to determine healthcare utilization, average costs, and costs for specific services during the initial phase of care...

BACKGROUND: Acute mesenteric ischemia poses a diagnostic challenge due to nonspecific clinical clues and lack of awareness owing to its rarity. Ischemia due to mesenteric venous thrombosis has a good prognosis compared to arterial cause and can be managed conservatively with early diagnosis. The portomesenteric venous system is an unusual site of thrombosis in patients with protein S deficiency, and its thrombosis is an uncommon cause of acute mesenteric ischemia. CASE PRESENTATION: We present a case of a 27-year-old Mongolian man who presented with acute abdominal pain increasing in severity, and refractory to repeated attempts at treatment with a misdiagnosis of acute peptic ulcer disease...

BACKGROUND: Despite advances in treatment, acute myocardial infarction (MI) is still associated with significant morbidity and mortality, especially in patients with extensive damage and scar formation. Based on some promising preclinical studies, there is interest in the use of mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) to promote cardiac repair after acute MI. However, there is a need for a systematic review of this evidence to summarize the efficacy and safety of MSCs in preclinical models of MI...

While statins are widely accepted as a keystone for secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease in the general population, statin treatment in chronic renal failure is still debated. Statins have shown no benefit on cardiovascular outcomes in 4D, AURORA, and SHARP trials conducted in patients on dialysis. However, no study has yet compared statin treatment after acute myocardial infarction in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients. Statin treatment significantly decreases overall mortality in ESRD patients with acute myocardial infarction compared to the non-statin group...

OBJECTIVE: ECG ST segment resolution (STR) has been used to assess myocardial perfusion in STEMI patients undergoing PPCI. However, in most of the studies ECGs recorded at different time points after the actual procedure have been used, limiting the options of therapeutic interventions while the patient is still in the catheterisation laboratory. The aim of this study was to investigate the presence and clinical consequences of intra-procedural STR during PPCI. METHODS: We analysed 12 lead ECGs recorded at the onset and the end of the PPCI procedure, measuring STR in the lead with maximum ST elevation on the initial recording...

A 73-year-old man was admitted for cardiac tamponade by oozing type left ventricular free wall rupture associated with acute myocardial infarction. Transthoracic echocardiography demonstrated moderate pericardial effusion and the presence of pseudoaneurysm within posterior wall. He went into shock with a systolic blood pressure of 60 mmHg. After introducing percutaneous cardiopulmonary support and intraaortic balloon pump, the sutureless repair was performed immediately. After having rehabilitation for right-sided hemiparesis, an elective pseudoaneurysm repair was planned...

BACKGROUND: Asthma is a common disorder that affects approximately 8% of the U.S. POPULATION: Treatment guidelines indicate inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) as the mainstay treatment, yet poor asthma control is common among ICS-treated patients. Treatment escalation (ICS dose increase and other controller therapy add-ons) is used to manage symptoms. Real-world studies of postescalation outcomes may inform treatment decisions. OBJECTIVES: To (a) describe characteristics and treatment patterns among asthma patients who escalated treatment and (b) assess outcomes (exacerbations, uncontrolled asthma, and health care resource utilization [HCRU]) after escalation...

Left ventricular free wall rupture (LVFWR) is a grave complication of acute myocardial infarction (MI). We report a case of a 73-year-old male who developed LVFWR five days after a transmural MI. The diagnosis was confirmed with echocardiography, which showed a large pericardial effusion with a clot in the pericardial sac. This case emphasizes that a high index of clinical suspicion for the acute mechanical complications of MI should be present when managing patients with transmural MIs. In addition, stat echocardiography is necessary to diagnose LVFWR and initiate treatment...

Experience with intensive chemotherapy for relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM) using VDT PACE regimen and its modifications (VDT PACE-like regimens: VPLRs) outside TOTAL THERAPY trials is limited. We analyzed the outcomes of 141 patients with RRMM who received VPLRs at our center between 2006 and 2017 in an intent-to-treat analysis. Median age was 59.7 years and 66.7% of patients were male. A median of 2.2 years (range 0.02-11.4) separated diagnosis of myeloma and inititation of VPLR. High-risk cytogenetics were present in 52...
