Application of High-Sensitivity Troponin in Suspected MyocardialInfarction. Data regarding high-sensitivity troponin concentrations in patients presenting to the emergency department with symptoms suggestive of myocardialinfarction may be useful in determining the probability of myocardialinfarction and subsequent 30-day outcomes.In 15 international cohorts of patients presenting to the emergency department with symptoms suggestive of myocardialinfarction, we determined the concentrations (...) of high-sensitivity troponin I or high-sensitivity troponin T at presentation and after early or late serial sampling. The diagnostic and prognostic performance of multiple high-sensitivity troponin cutoff combinations was assessed with the use of a derivation-validation design. A risk-assessment tool that was based on these data was developed to estimate the risk of index myocardialinfarction and of subsequent myocardialinfarction or death at 30 days.Among 22,651 patients (9604 in the derivation

Mild Hypothermia in Cardiogenic Shock Complicating MyocardialInfarction Experimental trials suggest improved outcome by mild therapeutic hypothermia for cardiogenic shock after acute myocardialinfarction. The objective of this study was to investigate the hemodynamic effects of mild therapeutic hypothermia in patients with cardiogenic shock complicating acute myocardial infarction.Patients (n=40) with cardiogenic shock undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention without classic (...) hypothermia failed to show a substantial beneficial effect on cardiac power index at 24 hours in patients with cardiogenic shock after acute myocardial infarction.URL: https://www.clinicaltrials.gov . Unique identifier: NCT01890317.
Evaluation of Microvascular Injury in Revascularized Patients With ST-Segment-Elevation MyocardialInfarction Treated With Ticagrelor Versus Prasugrel Despite successful restoration of epicardial vessel patency with primary percutaneous coronary intervention, coronary microvascular injury occurs in a large proportion of patients with ST-segment-elevation myocardialinfarction, adversely affecting clinical and functional outcome. Ticagrelor has been reported to increase plasma adenosine levels (...) , which might have a protective effect on the microcirculation. We investigated whether ticagrelor maintenance therapy after revascularized ST-segment-elevation myocardialinfarction is associated with less coronary microvascular injury compared to prasugrel maintenance therapy.A total of 110 patients with ST-segment-elevation myocardialinfarction received a loading dose of ticagrelor and were randomized to maintenance therapy of ticagrelor (n=56) or prasugrel (n=54) after primary percutaneous
Usefulness of Triiodothyronine Replacement Therapy in Patients With ST Elevation MyocardialInfarction and Borderline/Reduced Triiodothyronine Levels (from the THIRST Study) The aim of the study was to investigate whether TH replacement therapy is safe and impact infarct size, left ventricular (LV) volumes and function in patients with acute myocardialinfarction (AMI) and low T3 syndrome (LT3S). Thirty-seven AMI/LT3S patients were randomly treated or untreated with liothyronine (T3) therapy (...) (maximum dosage 15 mcg/m2/die) in addition to standardized treatment (T3-treated group, n = 19; untreated group, n = 18). TH and thyroxine (TSH) during hospital stay and at 1-month and 6 months were evaluated. At discharge and at 6 months LV volumes, ejection fraction, wall motion score index (WMSI) and infarct extent were measured by cardiac MR. T3-treated patients had a significant increase in fT3 (p = 0.003 and p <0.001) at discharge and 1-month. These patients had no signs or symptoms
Revised Cardiac Risk Index as a Predictor for MyocardialInfarction and Cardiac Arrest Following Posterior Lumbar Decompression A retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data.The aim of this study was to determine the ability of Revised Cardiac Risk Index (RCRI) to predict adverse cardiac events following posterior lumbar decompression (PLD).PLD is an increasingly common procedure used to treat a variety of degenerative spinal conditions. The RCRI is used to predict risk for cardiac (...) complications.Membership in the RCRI=1 cohort was a predictor for myocardialinfarction (MI) [odds ratio (OR) = 3.3, P = 0.002] and cardiac arrest requiring cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) (OR = 3.4, P = 0.013). Membership in the RCRI = 2 cohort was a predictor for MI (OR = 5.9, P = 0.001) and cardiac arrest requiring CPR (OR = 12.5), Membership in the RCRI = 3 cohort was a predictor for MI (OR = 24.9) and cardiac arrest requiring CPR (OR = 26.9, P = 0.006). RCRI had a good discriminative ability to predict both
Unloading the Left Ventricle Before Reperfusion in Patients With Anterior ST-Segment-Elevation MyocardialInfarction In ST-segment-elevation myocardialinfarction (STEMI), infarct size correlates directly with heart failure and mortality. Preclinical testing has shown that, in comparison with reperfusion alone, mechanically unloading the left ventricle (LV) before reperfusion reduces infarct size and that 30 minutes of unloading activates a cardioprotective program that limits reperfusion (...) ). The primary safety outcome was a composite of major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events at 30 days. Efficacy parameters included the assessment of infarct size by using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.All patients completed the U-IR (n=25) or U-DR (n=25) protocols with respective mean door-to-balloon times of 72 versus 97 minutes. Major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular event rates were not statistically different between the U-IR versus U-DR groups (8% versus 12%, respectively
Risk Estimation in Type 2 MyocardialInfarction and Myocardial Injury: The TARRACO Risk Score. Despite adverse prognoses of type 2 myocardialinfarction and myocardial injury, an effective, practical risk stratification method remains an unmet clinical need. We sought to develop an efficient clinical bedside tool for estimating the risk of major adverse cardiovascular events at 180 days for this patient population.The derivation cohort included patients with type 2 myocardialinfarction (...) or myocardial injury admitted to a tertiary hospital between 2012 and 2013 (n = 611). The primary outcome was a major adverse cardiovascular event (death or readmission for heart failure or myocardialinfarction). The score included clinical variables significantly associated with the outcome. External validation was conducted using the UTROPIA cohort (n = 401).The TARRACO Score included cardiac troponin (cTn) concentrations and 5 independent clinical predictors of adverse cardiovascular events: age

Although prior trials showed a higher rate of device failure compared with conventional drug-eluting stents (DES), only a single trial investigated (...) patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for acute myocardialinfarction (MI). We aimed to compare outcomes with BRS vs. DES in patients undergoing PCI for MI.We did a prospective, randomized, multicentre, non-inferiority, clinical trial of everolimus-eluting BRS vs. durable polymer everolimus-eluting stents (EES) in patients with acute MI. Patients were eligible for enrolment if they presented with ST-elevation MI, or non-ST-elevation MI with thrombosis visual at angiography
Effect of Medication Co-payment Vouchers on P2Y12 Inhibitor Use and Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events Among Patients With MyocardialInfarction: The ARTEMIS Randomized Clinical Trial. Despite guideline recommendations, many patients discontinue P2Y12 inhibitor therapy earlier than the recommended 1 year after myocardialinfarction (MI), and higher-potency P2Y12 inhibitors are underutilized. Cost is frequently cited as an explanation for both of these observations.To determine whether removing
Effect of Low-Dose Intracoronary Alteplase During Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention on Microvascular Obstruction in Patients With Acute MyocardialInfarction: A Randomized Clinical Trial. Microvascular obstruction commonly affects patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardialinfarction (STEMI) and is associated with adverse outcomes.To determine whether a therapeutic strategy involving low-dose intracoronary fibrinolytic therapy with alteplase infused early after coronary (...) infusion over 5 to 10 minutes. The intervention was scheduled to occur early during the primary PCI procedure, after reperfusion of the infarct-related coronary artery and before stent implant.The primary outcome was the amount of microvascular obstruction (% left ventricular mass) demonstrated by contrast-enhanced cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) conducted from days 2 through 7 after enrollment. The primary comparison was the alteplase 20-mg group vs the placebo group; if not significant
Platelet inhibition with standard versus lower maintenance dose of ticagrelor early after myocardialinfarction (ELECTRA): a randomized, open-label, active-controlled pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic study. Currently available data indicate that reduction of ticagrelor maintenance dose (MD) 1-3 years after acute myocardialinfarction (AMI) not only provides sufficient platelet inhibition, but also can improve ticagrelor's safety profile. The aim of this study was to compare the antiplatelet
Intraaortic Balloon Pump in Cardiogenic Shock Complicating Acute MyocardialInfarction: Long-Term 6-Year Outcome of the Randomized IABP-SHOCK II Trial The role of intraaortic balloon counterpulsation (IABP) in cardiogenic shock is still a subject of intense debate despite the neutral results of the IABP-SHOCK II trial (Intraaortic Balloon Pump in Cardiogenic Shock II) with subsequent downgrading in international guidelines. So far, randomized data on the impact of IABP on long-term clinical (...) outcomes in patients with cardiogenic shock complicating acute myocardialinfarction are lacking. Furthermore, only limited evidence is available on general long-term outcomes of patients with cardiogenic shock treated by contemporary practice.The IABP-SHOCK II trial is a multicenter, randomized, openlabel trial. Between 2009 and 2012, 600 patients with cardiogenic shock complicating acute myocardialinfarction undergoing early revascularization were randomized to IABP versus control.Long-term follow
