BACKGROUND: Several studies have revealed that high shock index (SI) is a risk factor for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients. These studies do not give a systematic review in this issue. Therefore, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to determine the effect of high SI on the prognosis of AMI patients. METHODS: We did a systematic search of PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Library, using various combinations of keywords such as "shock index," "shock-index," "acute myocardial infarction," "ST elevation myocardial infarction," "non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction," "STEMI," "NSTEMI," "AMI," and "MI" for eligible studies published up to December 23, 2016...

BACKGROUND: Understanding the relative risk of cardiovascular versus noncardiovascular death is important for designing clinical trials. These risks may differ depending on patient age, sex, and type of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). METHODS AND RESULTS: IMPROVE-IT (Improved Reduction of Outcomes: Vytorin Efficacy International Trial) was a randomized controlled trial of simvastatin plus either ezetimibe or placebo following stabilized ACS. Cause of death was adjudicated by an independent committee...

INTRODUCTION: Migraine has consistently been associated with increased risk of ischemic stroke, while the evidence for a relation with other types of stroke or coronary outcomes is limited. We examined the association between migraine and stroke and acute coronary syndrome (ACS) subtypes and the influence of potential confounding factors. METHODS: All first-time hospital contacts for stroke (n=155,216) or ACS (n=97,799) were identified in Danish National Patient Registers and matched with 2 control groups of the background population...

Gennaro Giustino, George D Dangas
A ratio of systolic blood pressure over left ventricle end-diastolic pressure (SBP/LVEDP) ≤4 identifies patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) at greater risk of in-hospital mortality or that may require the use of mechanical circulatory support (MCS). The predictive performance of the SBP/LVEDP ratio was comparable to non-invasive hemodynamic parameters (the shock index and the modified shock index) and established clinical risk stratification tools (the TIMI risk score). Alongside established clinical risk factors, invasive hemodynamic parameters may help in identifying STEMI patients who may benefit from early MCS...

A 45-year-old previously healthy man with minimal coronary artery disease on imaging presented with an acute MI after sustaining a wasp sting following previous non-eventful exposures throughout his life. This is the first case of Kounis syndrome with optical coherence tomography imaging and proven IgE wasp venom hypersensitivity. The Hymenoptera venom is composed of allergenic proteins and vasoactive amines which are responsible for venom toxicity. This patient also has a history of atopy giving a predisposition for developing IgE-mediated allergic reactions...

BACKGROUND: Understanding the determinants of persistent smoking after a coronary event constitutes the basis of modelling interventions of smoking cessation in secondary prevention programs. We aim to identify the potentially modifiable medical, sociodemographic and psychosocial factors, comprising the study factors, associated with unfavourable risk factor control after CHD events. METHODS: A cross-sectional explorative study used logistic regression analysis to investigate the association between study factors and smoking status in 1083 patients hospitalized with myocardial infarction and/or coronary revascularization...

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a risk factor for coronary artery disease. We investigated the effect of NAFLD grade on in-hospital and long-term outcomes in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The study group consisted of 360 patients with STEMI. The patients were classified according to the grade of the NAFLD using ultrasonography. Based on this classification, all patients were divided into 4 subgroups as grade 0 (no fatty liver disease), grade 1, grade 2, and grade 3...

Several studies established a link between bleeding and mortality in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI); however, it is unclear whether bleeding has a direct role in worsening the prognosis or if it is simply a marker of patient frailty. We investigated whether bleeding is an independent predictor of mortality in patients with STEMI treated with pPCI. The relationship between the presence of heart failure on presentation (Killip classification), bleeding occurrence, and outcome was also assessed...

BACKGROUND: Women with ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) have higher mortality rates than men. We investigated whether sex-related differences in timely access to care among STEMI patients may be a factor associated with excess risk of early mortality in women. METHODS AND RESULTS: We identified 6022 STEMI patients who had information on time of symptom onset to time of hospital presentation at 41 hospitals participating in the ISACS-TC (International Survey of Acute Coronary Syndromes in Transitional Countries) registry (NCT01218776) from October 2010 through April 2016...

REVIEW
Shalin Patel, Steven R Bailey
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review will address the clinical conundrum of those who may derive clinical benefit from complete revascularization of coronary stenosis that are discovered at the time of ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The decision to revascularize additional vessels with angiographic stenosis beyond the culprit lesion remains controversial, as does the timing of revascularization. RECENT FINDINGS: STEMI patients represent a high-risk patient population that have up to a 50% prevalence of multivessel disease...

BACKGROUND: Circulating miRNAs can function as biomarkers for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases. However, it is unclear whether miRNAs can be used as biomarkers for acute coronary syndrome (ACS). To this end, we applied gene chip technology to analyze miRNA expression in patients with stable angina (SA), non-ST elevation ACS (NSTE-ACS), and ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). METHODS: We enrolled patients with chest pain who underwent diagnostic coronary angiography, including five patients each with SA, NSTE-ACS, or STEMI, and five controls without coronary artery disease (CAD) but with three or more risk factors...

BACKGROUND: A comprehensive cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) in reperfused ST-segment myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients can be challenging to perform and can be time-consuming. We aimed to investigate whether native T1-mapping can accurately delineate the edema-based area-at-risk (AAR) and post-contrast T1-mapping and synthetic late gadolinium (LGE) images can quantify MI size at 1.5 T. Conventional LGE imaging and T2-mapping could then be omitted, thereby shortening the scan duration...

BACKGROUND: Pre-event Quality of Life (QOL) reflects the true social circumstances in which people live prior to the onset of myocardial infarctions. It is believed to be a predictor of the post-event QOL. The aim of this study was to describe the pre-event QOL and its influence on the post-event Quality of Life among patients with ST elevation (STEMI) and Non-ST elevation myocardial infarctions (NSTEMI) using Short Form-36 (SF-36), a generic QOL tool with 8 domains. Documented literature is rare in this regard in Sri Lanka, which is a lower-middle-income country...

: Among adult patients with hemophilia A and hemophilia B the emergent management of acute coronary syndromes (ACSs) is challenging, and exposure to antithrombotic agents and/or revascularization procedures may confer an enhanced risk of bleeding. We sought to identify clinical characteristics and in-hospital outcomes among ACS patients with hemophilia A/hemophilia B, compared with matched noncoagulopathic ACS controls. Case discharges from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample, Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (1998-2011) had International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision codes for hemophilia A/hemophilia B and ACS...
