A 45-year old male with no prior cardiac history, presented with cardiogenic shock in the setting of an anterolateral ST elevation myocardial infarction. We first placed a 2.5 Impella for hemodynamic support, and proceeded with emergent percutaneous coronary intervention to the proximal LAD. Several hours following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), the patient became acutely hypotensive and an echocardiogram revealed the Impella catheter was kinked within the left ventricle. The patient was taken back to the cath lab for Impella adjustment; however, damage to the distal catheter required the Impella be exchanged...

Contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) is a common event after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Presently, the main strategy to avoid CI-AKI lies in saline hydration, since to date none pharmacologic prophylaxis proved beneficial. Our aim was to determine if a low complexity mortality risk model is able to predict CI-AKI in patients undergoing PCI after ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). We have included patients with STEMI submitted to primary PCI in a tertiary hospital. The definition of CI-AKI was a raise of 0...

The incidence of left ventricular (LV) thrombi in the setting of an anterior myocardial infarction has declined significantly since the advent of primary percutaneous coronary intervention coupled with contemporary antithrombotic strategies in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarctions (STE-ACS). Despite oral anticoagulation with the currently accepted, standard-of-care vitamin K antagonist, warfarin, major bleeding complications still arise. Rivaroxaban is a novel, direct oral factor X anticoagulant that has several advantageous properties, which can attenuate bleeding risk...

Despite prompt revascularization, some patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) develop myocardial scars, which can be visualized by late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) in cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR). Our goal was to identify angiographic findings that were predictive for scar development in patients after reperfused AMI.We examined 136 patients after first ST-elevated myocardial infarction by CMR after a median of 4 days (range: 2-7). Patients with manifestation of LGE were matched to patients without LGE by means of age and gender...

Up to 50% of patients presenting with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) are found to have multivessel coronary artery disease. These patients have a worse prognosis compared with the overall STEMI population. Two revascularization strategies are possible for these patients: treating the infarct-related artery percutaneous coronary intervention (IRA-PCI) only or achieving Complete revascularization (CR), either through an immediate multivessel PCI during the index angiography or during a second-staged procedure...

INTRODUCTION: Cochlear implantation (CI) has developed from its origins in the 1980s. Initially, CI was for profound bilateral hearing impairment. However, candidacy for CI have become more widespread in recent years with unilateral implantation and an emphasis on hearing preservation. Evidence supports full electrode insertion in an atraumatic fashion into the scala tympani (ST) provides optimal hearing outcomes. The main aim of this systematic review was to elucidate the degree of trauma associated with CI insertion...

BACKGROUND: The extent of myocardial damage in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) depends on both the time to reperfusion as well as injury induced by ischaemia-reperfusion resulting in a cascade of cellular and humoral reactions. As a consequence of ischaemia-reperfusion in the heart, the high-temperature requirement serine peptidase 2 (HtrA2) is translocated from the mitochondria to the cytosol, whereupon it induces protease activity-dependent apoptosis mediated via caspases...
