BACKGROUND: There are currently inadequate data about whether late restenosis occurs after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation in patients with DES restenosis. METHODS AND RESULTS: We collected data for 608 patients who received revascularization for DES restenosis between 2004 and 2012 and analyzed 688 lesions: 359 lesions treated with a first-generation DES (first DES) and 329 lesions treated with a second-generation DES (second DES). Two serial angiographic follow-ups were routinely planned for the patients (at 8 and 20 months after the procedure)...

BACKGROUND: Risk stratification in non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) is currently mainly based on clinical characteristics. With routine invasive management, angiography findings and biomarkers are available and may improve prognostication. We aimed to assess if adding biomarkers [high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (cTnT-hs), N-terminal probrain-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), growth differentiation factor 15 (GDF-15)] and extent of coronary artery disease (CAD) might improve prognostication in revascularized patients with NSTE-ACS...

Background: The biolimus-eluting stent (BES), with a biodegradable polymer, has not been previously compared with the everolimus-eluting stent (EES), as a second-generation drug-eluting stent (DES).We sought to compare the 1-year outcome between the PROMUS(™) stent (EES type) and the BioMatrix(™) stent (BES type). Methods: From March 2008 to September 2011, all patients treated with the PROMUS™ stent or the BioMatrix™ stent for coronary artery stenosis at Tehran Heart Center were enrolled. The primary end points were 1-year adverse events, comprising death, myocardial infarction, target vessel revascularization, and target lesion revascularization...

OBJECTIVES: We examined a contemporary, unselected cohort of patients with coronary chronic total occlusions (CTOs) to determine the impact of CTO revascularization on long-term outcomes. METHODS: We retrospectively assessed the impact of CTO revascularization on clinical outcomes of consecutive patients found to have a CTO during coronary angiography performed at our institution during 2011 and 2012. The primary endpoint was the incidence of a major adverse cardiac event (MACE, defined as a composite of death, myocardial infarction, stroke, and target-vessel revascularization [TVR])...

BACKGROUND: There remains much controversy on impact of preoperative coronary artery disease (CAD) and necessity of preoperative coronary revascularization on postoperative outcomes in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). METHODS: Data were collected retrospectively for 364 consecutive patients undergoing TAVR at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, New Jersey, from May 15, 2012 to September 17, 2015. Preoperative CAD burden was calculated by three different measures of CAD: SYNTAX score, Duke Myocardial Jeopardy score (DMJS), and number of diseased coronary arteries...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the presence and localization of lipid-core plaque (LCP) in coronary vessels with chronic total occlusions (CTOs) using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS). METHODS: NIRS imaging was performed after guidewire crossing of the occlusion in 15 patients with CTOs. LCP was defined as ≥2 adjacent 2 mm yellow blocks on the block chemogram. We also measured the maximum lipid-core burden index (LCBI) in a 4 mm length of artery (maxLCBI4mm). Large LCP was defined as maxLCBI4mm ≥500...

BACKGROUND: The natural history of coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with low-to-intermediate risk is not well characterized. Although earlier invasive serial studies have documented the progression of atherosclerotic burden, most were focused on high-risk patients only. The PARADIGM registry is a large, prospective, multinational dynamic observational registry of patients undergoing serial coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA). The primary aim of PARADIGM is to characterize the natural history of CAD in relation to clinical and laboratory data...

Coronary heart disease is still the leading cause of death in industrialized nations. Even though revascularization strategies such as coronary artery bypass graft surgery, percutaneous coronary intervention and enhanced drug therapy significantly improved the outcome, about 30 % of patients develop chronic heart failure. Ischemic heart disease and heart failure are characterized by an adverse remodeling of the heart, featuring cardiomyocyte hypertrophy, increased fibrosis and capillary rarefaction. Therefore, gene therapeutic approaches for the treatment of heart failure, such as the modulating contractile function or therapeutic neovascularization, seem to be promising...

A 77-year-old male with many comorbidities underwent off pump coronary artery bypass grafting. A severely atherosclerotic ascending aorta was revealed by preoperative computed tomography(CT) and epiaortic echography during operation. Therefore, V-composite saphenous vein grafting was adopted for non left anterior descending artery (LAD) coronary lesions in addition to left internal thoracic artery-left anterior descending artery bypass grafting. He was discharged with no complications and all grafts were confirmed to be patent by postoperative CT...

OBJECTIVES: All patients with lower extremity peripheral arterial disease (LE-PAD) should benefit from recommended pharmacologic therapies including antiplatelet agents, angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors or Angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs), and HMG-CoA-reductase inhibitors (statins). In the present study, this triple therapy was defined as the best medical treatment. This study was designed to determine the number of patients who received best medical treatment at admission and at discharge from a vascular surgery department...

Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) are destined to lifelong antiplatelet therapy in form of aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) alone, or in combination with other P2Y2 inhibitors. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are the preferred agents for the treatment and prophylaxis of gastrointestinal injury associated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug or acetylsalicylic acid or both,(1) but recent data has raised questions about their association with negative cardiovascular events. We report 2 cases of patients with known CAD presented with chest pain mimicking angina pectoris that successfully resolved on discontinuation of the PPIs...

The aim of this study was to address 7-year clinical outcomes and impact of prolonged dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) after coronary stenting in hemodialysis patients. Our study included 123 consecutive hemodialysis patients who had undergone percutaneous coronary intervention with a drug-eluting stent (DES) or bare-metal stent (BMS) (DES: 64, BMS: 59) in our institution. We compared long-term clinical outcomes following DES with BMS implantation as well as clinical outcomes in patients on DAPT for ≥1 year (DAPT on group, 89) with those on DAPT for <1 year (DAPT off group, 34)...

OBJECTIVE: The Vascular Study Group of New England (VSGNE) requires documentation of follow-up for >80% of patients at least 9 months post-procedure. However, many participating groups fall short of this goal. We sought to identify factors independently associated with loss to long-term follow-up (LTF). METHODS: The VSGNE was queried from 2008-2012, for all carotid endarterectomy (CEA), endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (OPEN), infrainguinal bypass (INFRA), and suprainguinal bypass (SUPRA) procedures in patients who survived greater than 9 months post-procedure...

In the treatment of stable coronary artery disease (CAD) the identification of patients who may gain the highest benefit from further invasive treatments is of pivotal importance for the healthcare system. In this setting, it has been established that an ischemia-guided revascularization strategy yields improved clinical outcomes in a cost- effective fashion compared with anatomy-guided revascularization alone. Invasive fractional flow reserve (FFR) is considered the gold standard, especially in the intermediate-range atherosclerotic lesions, for assessing lesion specific ischemia at the time of invasive coronary angiography and has now become the standard of reference for studies assessing the diagnostic performance of the various non-invasive stress tests...

BACKGROUND: The prognostic values of the coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) score for predicting future cardiovascular events have been previously demonstrated in numerous studies. However, few studies have used the rich information available from CCTA to detect functionally significant coronary lesions. We sought to compare the prognostic values of Gai's plaque score and the coronary artery calcium score (CACS) of CCTA for predicting functionally significant coronary lesions, using fractional flow reserve (FFR) as the gold standard...

BACKGROUND: It is not entirely clear whether ischemia burden on stress single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) effectively identifies patients who have a long-term benefit from coronary revascularization. METHODS: The study population consisted of 719 patients with ischemia on stress SPECT. Early coronary revascularization was defined as percutaneous coronary intervention or coronary artery bypass grafting ≤90 days after SPECT. Patients who underwent late revascularization (>90 days after SPECT) were excluded (n = 164)...

BACKGROUND: Current guidelines suggest that coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) should be the preferred revascularization method for unprotected left main coronary artery stenosis. In light of evidence from recent randomized trials, we assessed whether percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using drug-eluting stents is as safe and effective as CABG for the treatment of unprotected left main coronary artery disease. METHODS AND RESULTS: Digital databases and manual searches were performed for randomized trials comparing PCI and CABG for unprotected left main coronary artery stenosis...
