Background: The characterization of patients who have acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and insignificant coronary stenosis is unclear. Aim: The present study aimed to investigate the clinical profile, in-hospital and 3-month outcome of AMI patients with insignificant coronary stenosis in comparison with those with significant disease. Methods: This prospective observational study included 200 consecutive patients admitted with AMI. Group I (100 patients) included patients with insignificant CAD (all lesions <50% stenosis)...

Despite the cardiovascular benefits of regular sports, sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) risk is increased during or shortly after exercise. Association with coronary artery disease (CAD) has been described in small studies, mainly autopsic with potential bias given the high sports-related SCA survival, and focusing on young competitive athletes, whereas sports-related SCA occurs mostly in recreational athletes.1-5 Through the Paris Sudden Death Expertise Center prospective registry that includes all SCAs in Paris and suburbs since May 2011, we performed the first broad comprehensive CAD description in sports-related SCAs, with a comparison with matched non-sports-related SCAs...

BACKGROUND: Only a small fraction of acute chest pain in the emergency department (ED) is due to obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD). ED chest pain remains associated with high rates of recidivism, often in the presence of nonobstructive CAD. Psychological states such as depression, anxiety, and elevation of perceived stress may account for this finding. The objective of the study was to determine whether psychological states predict recurrent chest pain (RCP). METHODS: We conducted a prospective cohort study of low- to moderate-cardiac risk ED patients admitted to the Yale Chest Pain Center with acute chest pain...

BACKGROUND: Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the most common cause of death globally, although mortality rates are falling. Psychological symptoms are prevalent for people with CHD, and many psychological treatments are offered following cardiac events or procedures with the aim of improving health and outcomes. This is an update of a Cochrane systematic review previously published in 2011. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effectiveness of psychological interventions (alone or with cardiac rehabilitation) compared with usual care (including cardiac rehabilitation where available) for people with CHD on total mortality and cardiac mortality; cardiac morbidity; and participant-reported psychological outcomes of levels of depression, anxiety, and stress; and to explore potential study-level predictors of the effectiveness of psychological interventions in this population...

IMPORTANCE: About 10% of patients with acute chest pain are ultimately diagnosed with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Early, accurate estimation of the probability of ACS in these patients using the clinical examination could prevent many hospital admissions among low-risk patients and ensure that high-risk patients are promptly treated. OBJECTIVE: To review systematically the accuracy of the initial history, physical examination, electrocardiogram, and risk scores incorporating these elements with the first cardiac-specific troponin...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a well-recognized predictor of morbidity and mortality after percutaneous coronary intervention. However, the impact of AKI on the outcome of patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) in relation to coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) has not been established. METHODS: Of the 17,421 patients who presented with non-ST-segment elevation ACS or ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction enrolled in the ACUITY and HORIZONS-AMI trials, 1,406 (8...

BACKGROUND: Elevation of ST segment in leads V3R/ V4R, which is commonly encountered in right ventricular myocardial infarction, may also occur in patients with anterior ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). However, the clinical impact of this finding in the setting of anterior myocardial infarction is not well understood. AIMS: We aimed to investigate the prognostic value of ST segment elevation in leads V3R/V4R in patients with first acute anterior myocardial infarction...

BACKGROUND: The PEGASUS-TIMI 54 (Prevention of Cardiovascular Events in Patients with Prior Heart Attack Using Ticagrelor Compared to Placebo on a Background of Aspirin-Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction 54) trial studied 2 doses of ticagrelor, 90 mg twice a day (bid) and 60 mg bid, for long-term prevention of ischemic events in patients with prior myocardial infarction. Both doses similarly reduced the rate of ischemic events versus placebo. The pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of ticagrelor 60 mg bid have not been studied...

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality in American women. Since 1984, the annual cardiovascular disease mortality rate has remained greater for women than men; however, over the last decade, there have been marked reductions in cardiovascular disease mortality in women. The dramatic decline in mortality rates for women is attributed partly to an increase in awareness, a greater focus on women and cardiovascular disease risk, and the increased application of evidence-based treatments for established coronary heart disease...

OBJECTIVES: Accelerated diagnostic protocols (ADPs), such as the HEART Pathway, are gaining popularity in emergency departments (EDs) as tools used to risk stratify patients with acute chest pain. However, provider nonadherence may threaten the safety and effectiveness of ADPs. The objective of this study was to determine the frequency and impact of ADP nonadherence. METHODS: A secondary analysis of participants enrolled in the HEART Pathway RCT was conducted. This trial enrolled 282 adult ED patients with symptoms concerning for acute coronary syndrome without ST-elevation on electrocardiogram...

The treatment of edema in patients with nephrotic syndrome is generally managed by dietary sodium restriction and loop diuretics. However, edema does not improve in some patients despite adequate sodium restriction and maximal dose of diuretics. In such patients, combination of albumin and a loop diuretic may improve edema by diuresis and natriuresis. The response to this combination of albumin and a diuretic has not been observed in all studies. The purpose of this review is to discuss the physiology of diuresis and natriuresis of this combination therapy, and provide a brief summary of various studies that have used albumin and a loop diuretic to improve diuretic-resistant edema...

UNLABELLED: Non-invasive imaging plays a critical role in the assessment of patients presenting with suspected angina chest pain. However, wide variations in practice across Europe and North America highlight the lack of consensus in selecting the appropriate first-line test for the investigation of coronary artery disease (CAD). CT coronary angiography (CTCA) has a high negative predictive value for excluding the presence of CAD. As such, it serves as a potential 'gatekeeper' to downstream testing by reducing the rate of inappropriate invasive coronary angiography...

BACKGROUND: Acute chest pain of non-traumatic origin is a common reason for presentation to physician's offices and emergency rooms. Coronary heart disease is the cause in up to 25% of cases. Because acute chest pain, depending on its etiology, may be associated with a high risk of death, rapid, goal-oriented management is mandatory. METHODS: This review is based on pertinent articles and guidelines retrieved by a selective search in PubMed. RESULTS: History-taking, physical examination, and a 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) are the first steps in the differential diagnostic process and generally allow the identification of features signifying a high risk of lifethreatening illness...
