BACKGROUND: PCI has been done traditionally through transfemoral route. But now transradial and transbrachial routes are also coming up in practice. We compared transradial versus transfemoral routes for ease of operability, time for procedure, complications, and failure rates through a prospective study. METHODS: Four hundred Patients admitted in department of cardiology for percutaneous interventions were enrolled in the study. 200 patients were assigned to each group randomly...

BACKGROUND: Smoking has been shown to reduce health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) undergoing percutanous coronary intervention (PCI) either by means of balloon angioplasty or with the use of bare-metal stents (BMS). Drug-eluting stents (DES) have now been widely used and are related to substantial reduction of restenosis and significantly improved HRQOL compared with BMS. This study aimed to evaluate the effects of smoking on HRQOL in patients after PCI in DES era...

BACKGROUND: Controversies were previously observed with the concomitant use of clopidogrel and Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs), especially omeprazole, following coronary angioplasty. Even though several studies showed no interaction between clopidogrel and PPIs, questions have been raised about the decrease in antiplatelet effects of clopidogrel with PPIs. A previously published meta-analysis showed concomitant use of clopidogrel and PPIs to be associated with higher adverse cardiovascular outcomes...

Chronic Mesenteric Ischemia (CMI) presenting as acute abdomen can be treated percutaneously. An endovascular intervention has surpassed surgical revascularization over the past decade due to its lesser perioperative complication rate. Trans-femoral approach of revascularising is limited by its difficulty in coaxial alignment of the guiding catheter and hence, brachial artery and recently the radial approach have been utilized for mesenteric artery revascularisation for over a decade. Here by we report a case of chronic mesenteric ischemia having total occlusion of two and 70% occlusion of one of the three mesenteric vessels...

Objective Diabetes is a negative predictor in coronary artery disease patients. Since the introduction of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), PCI has evolved through technological advances in devices, improvements in operators' techniques and the establishment of effective therapeutic protocols. The aim of this study is to examine the changes in the clinical outcomes following PCI in patients with diabetes. Methods We compared the clinical outcomes in patients with diabetes following PCI from 1984 to 2010 at Juntendo University over three eras (plain old balloon angioplasty (POBA)-, bare metal stents (BMS)- and drug-eluting stents (DES)-eras)...

BACKGROUND: Coronary angioplasty has been replacing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) because of the relative advantage in terms of recovery time and noninvasiveness of the procedure. Compared to other Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries, Korea has experienced a rapid increase in coronary angioplasty volumes. METHODS: We analyzed changes in procedure volumes of CABG and of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) from three sources: the OECD Health Data, the National Health Insurance Service (NHIS) surgery statistics, and the National Health Insurance claims data...

BACKGROUND: The development of recoarctation after the Norwood I procedure is a known complication in patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). METHODS: We reviewed data on 194 consecutive patients with HLHS who underwent the Norwood I procedure between 2000 and 2015. All patients who survived until the second stage of the procedure were included. Recoarctation was defined by the need for intervention, either catheter based or surgical. The aim of our study was to determine if the patch material used for the initial arch reconstruction had an influence on the development of recoarctation...

AIMS: Selective use of DES only in patients at higher risk of MACE is common practice, particularly in health care systems with a large premium payable for DES. We aimed to identify subgroups of patients in which the use of BMS in primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) for STEMI can still be justified. METHODS AND RESULTS: We performed a patient-level pooled analysis of COMFORTABLE-AMI and EXAMINATION comparing contemporary DES with BMS in PPCI. A risk score was applied using three parameters: lesion length>15mm, vessel size <3mm, and diabetes mellitus...

There remains considerable heterogeneity in the management of significant lesions in non culprit coronary arteries in STEMI patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI). Three recent randomised trials have shown clinical outcome benefit in a complete revascularisation approach when compared to PPCI of the culprit artery alone. By contrast, observational data suggest that an aggressive complete revascularisation may not confer clinical benefit and may, in some cases, be harmful. Areas covered: In this review we discuss the three recent randomised trials that have advocated a complete revasculariation approach in addition to data available from registries...

AIMS: To explore the utility of baseline SYNTAX Score (bSS) and residual SYNTAX Score (rSS) in predicting 12-month outcomes after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI). METHODS AND RESULTS: 590 all-comers with acute STEMI presenting for PPCI over a 2-year period were identified. Of these, 173 were excluded because of unsuitability for SYNTAX score calculation for this study. Two experienced observers calculated the bSS and rSS. Mortality data were sourced from the government registry...

BACKGROUND AND RATIONALE: Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) is a fundamental treatment that optimizes clinical outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention, especially in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Although current international guidelines recommend DAPT for at least 12 months after implantation of a drug-eluting stent in patients with ACS, these recommendations are not based on randomized controlled trials dedicated to ACS population. STUDY DESIGN: The SMART-DATE trial is a prospective, multicenter, randomized, and open-label study to demonstrate the noninferiority of 6-month DAPT compared with 12 months or longer DAPT in patients with ACS undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention...

AIMS: To evaluate (i) local coronary and systemic levels of microparticles (MP) in Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) and Stable Angina Pectoris (SAP) patients and (ii) their release after plaque disruption with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND: Microparticles are small vesicles originating from plasma membranes of cells after activation or apoptosis and are implicated in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Neutrophils play a role in plaque destabilisation and shed neutrophil-derived microparticles have the potential to drive significant pro-inflammatory and thrombotic downstream effects...

AIMS: To investigate the impact of hyperemic microvascular resistances (HMRs) on myocardial perfusion and contractility after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in chronic ischemic left ventricular dysfunction (CILVD). METHODS: The current retrospective study included 48 patients with CILVD of the left anterior descending territory undergoing HMRs assessment before and after PCI with a dual-sensor intracoronary pressure-flow wire. The severity of resting myocardial underperfusion and contractile dysfunction of the left anterior descending territory was scored as summed rest score (SRS-T) by single photon emission tomography, wall motion score index (WMSI-T) and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) by transthoracic echocardiography before PCI and after 3 months...

REVIEW
Freek W A Verheugt
Antithrombotic therapy is essential in the prevention of periprocedural death and myocardial infarction during and after percutaneous coronary intervention. In the pathogenesis of acute coronary syndromes (ACS), both platelets and the coagulation cascade play an important role. Therefore, periprocedural antithrombotic therapy is even more important in ACS than in elective PCI. The most used agents are aspirin, platelet P2Y12 blockers, platelet glycoprotein IIb/IIIa blockers, and parenteral anticoagulants. The P2Y12 blockers must be continued at least 12 months...
