E-Cigarette Use and Myocardial Infarction – Physician’s Weekly

Posted: October 9, 2019 at 1:45 am

Ecigarettes are presented as an alternative to combustible cigarettes, but a study shows that these products are associated with higher risk of myocardial infarction. Published research has shown that risks of myocardial infarction (MI) are significantly higher among young smokers when compared with those who have never smoked. Continue reading

Sudden Cardiac Arrest and Ventricular Arrhythmias following first type I Myocardial Infarction in the Contemporary Era – DocWire News

Posted: at 1:45 am

INTRODUCTION: Myocardial infarction(MI) is associated with increase in subsequent heart failure, recurrent ischemic events, sudden cardiac arrest and ventricular arrhythmias (SCA-VA).

Early MI Linked to High Recurrent Events, Mortality – Medscape

Posted: at 1:45 am

Even with coronary revascularization and secondary prevention, individuals with premature coronary artery disease (CAD) are at high risk for recurrent events and death, with much of the risk attributable to poor risk-factor control. The 880 patients prospectively studied in this trial, published online in the October15 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, were younger than 45 years at the time of their first hospital admission for a coronary event.

Quantitative Flow Ratio guided Residual Functional SYNTAX Score for Risk Assessment in Patients with ST-Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction…

Posted: at 1:45 am

AIMS: This study was aimed at investigating the prognostic ability of quantitative flow ratio (QFR) guided residual functional SYNTAX score (Q-rFSS) and functional incomplete revascularization (IR) in patients with ST-segment elevationmyocardial infarction(STEMI) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). A total of consecutive 354 STEMI patients was included. Q-rFSS was defined as residual SYNTAX score (rSS) measured in vessels with QFR 0.8 Continue reading

Left Main Treated With PCI or CABG Have Similar Outcomes at Five Years – Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology

Posted: at 1:45 am

October 3, 2019 Five-year data from the EXCEL Trial showed patients with left main coronary disease treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using the Xience stent or coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG), had similar similar long-term, composite outcomes at five years. Five-year findings were reported at the 2019 Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) scientific symposium. The study was also published simultaneously in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).[1] In patients with left main coronary artery disease and low or intermediate coronary disease complexity, we found no significant difference between PCI and CABG with respect to the composite rate of death, stroke, or myocardial infarction at five years, said lead investigator Gregg W. Continue reading
