We assessed the efficacy and safety of tirofiban intracoronary versus intravenous administration during percutaneous coronary intervention for patients with acute coronary syndrome. The databases of PubMed, Web of Science, China National Knowledge Infrastructure, and WanFang Database were retrieved. A total of 437 articles were found, according to inclusive and exclusive criteria, 13 of which were finally included. Compared with subjects with intravenous administration, those with intracoronary administration were more likely to reach thrombolysis in myocardial infarction trial grade 3 flow (relative risk = 1...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to compare site-reported measurements of fractional flow reserve (FFR) with FFR analysis by an independent core laboratory (CL). BACKGROUND: FFR is an index of coronary stenosis severity that has been validated in multiple trials and is widely used in clinical practice. However, the incidence of suboptimal FFR measurements is unknown. METHODS: Patients undergoing FFR assessment within the CONTRAST (Can Contrast Injection Better Approximate FFR Compared to Pure Resting Physiology) study had paired, repeated measurements of multiple physiological metrics per local practice...

We present a patient who developed acute intraoperative cardiac failure requiring open cardiac message immediately after uncomplicated heart transplantation. After successful resuscitation and establishment of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, coronary angiography showed diffuse multivessel coronary vasospasm, which responded to intracoronary and IV administration of vasodilators. Cardiac function gradually improved and the patient was discharged home after a prolonged hospital course. Cardiac allograft dysfunction associated with coronary vasospasm immediately after heart transplantation has not previously been reported...

BACKGROUND: Myocardial bridge (MB) has been reported to induce cardiac complications including coronary vasospasm. Although MB has some anatomical and morphological variations, the association of these variations with vasospasm is unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the relation between morphological severity of MB and vasospasm induced by acetylcholine (ACh) provocation test. METHODS: A total of 392 patients without coronary stent in the left anterior descending artery (LAD) undergoing intracoronary ACh provocation test were included...

Abciximab (c7E3 Fab) is one of the three potent intravenous glycoprotein IIb/IIIa receptor inhibitors (along with eptifibatide and tirofiban) that have shown significant positive outcomes when used in patients with intracoronary thrombus. However, major side effects have been reported with its use including hypotension, major bleeding and thrombocytopenia. This case is a 53-year-old man presenting with acute chest pain diagnosed with non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction, who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention with abciximab and heparin infusion and developed acute profound thrombocytopenia (platelet count <20,000/L) within 9 hours of infusion...

In pigs, the deep location of the common carotid artery and overlying sternomastoideus muscle in the neck has led to the recommendation for a surgical cutdown for common carotid access, as opposed to minimally invasive techniques for vascular access. We sought to determine if direct percutaneous common carotid artery access in piglets is attainable. Seventeen piglets were anesthetized and intubated. Under two-dimensional and color flow Doppler ultrasound guidance, a 21 gauge needle was utilized to access the right common carotid artery...

Guidewire-induced pseudo-lesions are referred to accordion phenomenon and are infrequent occurrences during percutaneous coronary intervention of tortuous coronary arteries. Their occurrence can be a diagnostic challenge to the interventionist and might lead to unnecessary intervention. Ischemia and hemodynamic compromise are possible complications, if not managed promptly. The differential diagnosis includes coronary dissection, thrombus, and spasm. We describe a patient who developed pseudo-lesions of the tortuous right coronary artery in multiple segments during PCI...

We present a case of a 47-year-old woman with a mechanical mitral valve prosthesis and recurrent myocardial infarction. The most common etiology of spontaneous myocardial infarction is an acute coronary syndrome caused by rupture or erosion of an atherosclerotic plaque. However, the differential diagnosis in the patient described below also included infarction due to embolization or coronary spasm. It can be challenging to discriminate between the different causes of myocardial infarction based on interpretation of symptoms, physical examination, laboratory tests, and electrocardiography alone...

Acute coronary events, the dreaded manifestation of coronary atherosclerosis, remain one of the main contributors to mortality and disability in the developed world. The majority of those events are associated with atherosclerotic plaques-related thrombus formation following an acute disruption, that being rupture or erosion, of an event-prone lesion. These historically termed vulnerable plaques have been the target of numerous benchtop and clinical research endeavors, yet to date without solid results that would allow for early identification and potential treatment...

The GP IIb/IIIa inhibitors (GPIs) rapidly provide therapeutic levels of platelet aggregation inhibition and serve as adjunct pharmacotherapy to oral P2Y12 inhibitors that exhibit a significant delay in onset of action for patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS). Intracoronary (IC) administration of the high dose bolus (HDB) tirofiban has not been extensively studied. Compared to intravenous delivery, IC administration can lead to higher local drug concentration and, therefore, provide instantaneous disruption of platelet aggregation in the culprit vessel...

Intravenous ultrasound-targeted microbubble destruction (IV-UTMD) has made distinct but limited progress in gene therapy. Intracoronary (IC) injection may lead to more gene transfection than IV injection. This study compared the therapeutic effects of IC-UTMD-mediated and conventional IV-UTMD-mediated gene transfection in acute myocardial infarction (MI). A canine MI model was successfully established through transcatheter coronary artery embolism, and the animals were divided into several treatment groups: IC injection with UTMD and the negative control plasmid (IC-UTMD); IC injection of the angiopoietin 1 (Ang1) plasmid (IC-Ang1); IC injection with UTMD and the Ang1 plasmid (IC-UTMD-Ang1); and IV injection with UTMD and the Ang1 plasmid (IV-UTMD-Ang1)...

BACKGROUND: Myocardial hemorrhage is a frequent complication following reperfusion in acute myocardial infarction and is predictive of adverse outcomes. However, it remains unsettled whether hemorrhage is simply a marker of a severe initial ischemic insult or directly contributes to downstream myocardial damage. Our objective was to evaluate the contribution of hemorrhage towards inflammation, microvascular obstruction and infarct size in a novel porcine model of hemorrhagic myocardial infarction using cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR)...

OBJECTIVES: Early detection of microvascular dysfunction after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) could identify patients at high risk of adverse clinical outcome, who may benefit from adjunctive treatment. Our objective was to compare invasively measured coronary flow reserve (CFR) and hyperaemic microvascular resistance (HMR) for their predictive power of long-term clinical outcome and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR)-defined microvascular injury (MVI). METHODS: Simultaneous intracoronary Doppler flow velocity and pressure measurements acquired immediately after revascularisation for AMI from five centres were pooled...

The pathophysiology of myocardial injury that results from cardiac ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) is incompletely understood. Experimental evidence from murine models indicates that innate immune mechanisms including complement activation via the classical and lectin pathways are crucial. Whether factor B (fB), a component of the alternative complement pathway required for amplification of complement cascade activation, participates in the pathophysiology of myocardial I/R injury has not been addressed. We induced regional myocardial I/R injury by transient coronary ligation in WT C57BL/6 mice, a manipulation that resulted in marked myocardial necrosis associated with activation of fB protein and myocardial deposition of C3 activation products...

BACKGROUND: Adenosine induced hyperaemic fractional flow reserve (aFFR) is a validated predictor of clinical outcome and part of routine interventional practice. Protocol issues associated with the adenosine infusion limit the use of aFFR in clinical practice. Contrast medium induced hyperaemic FFR (cFFR) is a simpler procedure from a practical standpoint. We compared the two in a real world setting. METHODS: We analysed 76 patients that had both cFFR and aFFR assessment of 100 angiographically indeterminate coronary stenosis...

Intravenous (IV) infusion of adenosine represents the gold standard for measuring fractional flow reserve (FFR). However, IV adenosine is more expensive and time-consuming compared with intracoronary (IC) boluses of adenosine. We conducted a meta-analysis of studies comparing IC with IV adenosine for FFR assessment in the same coronary lesions. We searched for studies comparing IC with IV adenosine and reporting absolute FFR values or rate of abnormal FFR for both routes. Prespecified subgroup analysis was performed to appraise studies using low-dose (<100 μg) or high-dose IC adenosine (≥100 μg)...

Melatonin, an endogenously produced hormone, might potentially limit the ischemia reperfusion injury and improve the efficacy of mechanical reperfusion with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). This study was aimed to evaluate whether the treatment effect of melatonin therapy in patients with STEMI is influenced by the time to administration. We performed a post hoc analysis of the Melatonin Adjunct in the Acute Myocardial Infarction Treated With Angioplasty trial (NCT00640094), which randomized STEMI patients to melatonin (intravenous and intracoronary bolus) or placebo during pPCI...

Fluorescence lifetime imaging has been shown to serve as a valuable tool for interrogating and diagnosis of biological tissue at mesoscopic level. The ability to analyze fluorescence decay curves to extract lifetime values in real-time is crucial for clinical translation and applications such as tumor margin delineation or intracoronary imaging of atherosclerotic plaques. In this work, we compare the performance of two popular non-parametric (fit-free) methods for determining lifetime values from fluorescence decays in real-time -Phasor approach and Laguerre deconvolution...
